Today is leap day (February 29th) which comes around once every 4 years, an old folk tradition for today common in Britain and Ireland, is that women may propose marriage today (only on leap years), what are your thoughts on this?


To keep pace with rising property assessments, the BC government has raised the Home Owner Grant threshold to $1,285,000. The threshold is the maximum assessed value a property can reach to allow the property owner to claim the full Home Owner Grant. BC Assessment estimates the value of all BC homes on July 1 each year. The Ministry of Finance reviews this data and adjusts the Home Owner Grant threshold to ensure at least 95.5% of eligible home owners receive the full amount. Owners of homes valued above the threshold may qualify for a partial grant. For information on the BC Home Owner Grant program visit: or feel free to call us at 604-942-7300 or email
