Vancouver Headlines: June 8th

June 8, 2012 | by  |  Vancouver Headlines

City Councillor Geoff Meggs has tossed his hat in the provincial ring, announcing his intention to seek a seat in the legislature as an NDP MLA for Vancouver-Fairview.

The Sun reports on the rosy news that Canada’s job market has come to a grinding halt after two months of gains. The federal unemployment rate now sits at 7.3% – only marginally below B.C.’s unemployment rate of 7.4%. However, what the article doesn’t mention is that the unemployment rate among youth and students is more than double that (at 15% and 16%, respectively).

Who needs current events when you have ducklings? Certainly not The Province.

With the media still buzzing over Toronto’s potential plastic bag ban, The Sun explores whether such a ban could be in the cards for Vancouver. As it turns out? Probably not. What a scoop!
