The Queen arrived at Canada House on Trafalgar Square with Prince Philip on Thursday morning. A Canadian volunteer at Canada House estimated that it was hosting between 200 and 250 visitors a day. Many of Campeau’s early houses look to be built from these plans, or at least very much inspired by them. Walk-ins welcome The art gallery is an opportunity for passerby to come in and experience Canada. Canada bought the building in 1959, and renamed it to honour the country’s first prime minister, Sir John A. Macdonald. The Speaker is the chief officer of the House and his election is the prime order of business when the House reassembles after a general election. While the scenario is eerily similar to Australia, it is actually Canada and early signs are the property market is rapidly cooling.

Just lately I have discovered a new show: Love it or List it. Essentially the basis is that people will get a Realtor to find them a new house and a designer to redo the house they already own. This week Canada’s image takes another great leap forward with the reopening of the renovated Canada House, an imposing 19th-century building on Trafalgar Square that will be a cultural as well as diplomatic showcase for Canadians in London and a magnet for the British cultural community.canada house

Poster of New Eyes on the Universe promoting the Nobel Prize winning research from SNO (Sudbury Neutrino Observatory), Sudbury, Ontario. As the chart—which is indexed to 1998, as far back as the Teranet-National Bank house price index goes—reveals, though U.S. housing prices have climbed back from the lows of the subprime mortgage crisis in some cities, only San Francisco, home to booming Silicon Valley, has kept pace with Toronto’s house prices—and no U.S. city comes close to Vancouver’s real estate craze.

While the majority of houses in Alta Vista are detached, Campeau constructed one of the few pockets of semi-detached houses in Applewood Acres. Given the date of the photo, and the time it would take to build not only one house but hundreds of houses after the fire, we can safely assume that construction of the building began in1886. Now that I have you cross-eyed and confused, lets return …

Canada’s housing market continues to grow stronger, despite repeated market-cooling measures and an economy that is struggling. This week Canada’s image takes another great leap forward with the reopening of the renovated Canada House, an imposing 19th-century building on Trafalgar Square that will be a cultural as well as diplomatic showcase for Canadians in London and a magnet for the British cultural community.

I love it when I get surprises in my e-mail inbox, especially when they are from history researchers who come across something that relates to houses that I am researching or have researched, and especially when they related with Vancouver’s East End’s history.

Much of what the public sees is the rancorous debate and partisan bickering among political parties but the House of Commons is also where most government legislation is introduced, and where Members of Parliament meet to debate policy, vote on key legislation, and hold …

Though my educational background has a focus on Asia, and my former work life focussed on Japanese tourism to Canada, for the past twelve years I have worked researching the history of close to 900 houses in Vancouver, and 40 in New Westminster.
