VANCOUVER – It may be pumpkin spice season, but Tim Hortons is experimenting with a far more bizarre new latte flavour — Buffalo Sauce, in the latest move by restaurants to create buzz-worthy concoctions.
The company says two Buffalo, N.Y.-based restaurants will serve the latte, made with a bold Buffalo sauce flavour and finished off with whipped topping and dusted with zesty Buffalo seasoning.
NEEPAWA, Man. — Like an impending disaster, the housing market in two of Canada’s largest cities is hard to take your eyes off of. While we may be watching from a safe distance, one way or another, it’s going to have an impact across the country.
A decade ago, our decision to move back to Manitoba was prompted in part by the high housing prices in Vancouver. Over the last 10 years, prices have only climbed higher. In January 2016, the average price for detached houses in the Lower Mainland (which includes more than just the city of Vancouver), hit a high of $1.83 million, well beyond the reach of most average homeowners.
VANCOUVER – Illicit drugs have always been a problem in port cities, but experts say the emergence of highly potent synthetic opioids that are fuelling British Columbia’s overdose crisis are slipping through borders in new ways, presenting challenges for law enforcement.

(NC) — What do food wrappers, fishing line, a taxidermy wiener dog, duck photos, bottle caps and a toy dinosaur have in common? They are all things left on Canadian shorelines, and they are all things that originated from people.
In 2014, the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre and WWF-Canada’s Great Canadian Shoreline cleanup, presented by Loblaw Companies Limited, removed more than 139,000 kilograms of litter from shorelines across Canada, equivalent to filling roughly 70 dump trucks. From the usual cigarette butts, bottle caps and plastic bags to the unusual drone, monocle and duck decoy, the message comes through loud and clear: the damaged state of our shorelines is the result of human activities and behaviour.
