    Donald Cerrone assured anyone and everyone who would listen that he wasn’t taking his UFC 187 late-replacement bout against John Makdessi lightly.

  • Vancouver real estate prices pushing millennials to leave city: report

    The rising cost of home ownership in Metro Vancouver could see a migration of highly mobile millennials away from the region, a report released by Vancity credit union suggests. The report argues that the continued rise in the area's housing market is not being mitigated by salaries, leaving a growing affordability gap for the majority of professions. Identifying owning their own home as a goal for up to 93 per cent of millennials (those born between 1980 and 2000), Vancity predicts a mass migration away from Metro Vancouver, and a subsequent labour crisis for the area.

Kennedy Airport in New York, according to the Seoul High Court. The upper court sentenced Cho to 10 months in prison and then suspended the sentence for two years.

Karen Stintz, a former city councillor for Ward 16, has a personal connection to the issue: she herself has an artificial lawn.

  • Curry's MVP performance keys Game 3 blowout, puts Rockets on brink

    "We had plenty of opportunities to win both of the games," said Rockets star James Harden after a brilliant Game 2 — 38 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, three steals and a block — that ended on a sour note with a final-play turnover that sealed a 99-98 Golden State win. The Warriors absolutely decimated Houston on Saturday night, hammering the Rockets 115-80 to take a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven Western finals. This marks the first three-game losing streak of the Rockets' season ... which makes sense, because this is the first time they've had to play this Warriors team in three straight games.
