Rapidly changing consumer habits are having major impact on grocery sales in Canada | Georgia Straight Vancouver's News & Entertainment Weekly
Meanwhile, a major B.C. grocery retailer, the Jim Pattison Group, has expanded its footprint in this industry in the past couple of years by buying Choices Markets and Quality Foods.

Pattison also owns Save-On-Foods, Urban Fare, Buy-Low Foods, Meinhardt Fine Foods, PriceSmart Foods, and Nesters Food Market, giving the company a strong vertical presence in an increasingly fragmented market.

The B.C.-based company has a strong grocery wholesale division and has been expanding its chain of Pure Integrative Pharmacy outlets.

Six lots in False Creek were for affordable housing. They remain empty | Vancouver Sun
Today, there are only 542 affordable units in False Creek North, according to the city, far fewer than the 20 per cent target of approximately 1,500. In fact, rental and non-market housing units together make up only nine per cent of the housing stock in False Creek North, much lower than the overall city average of 32 per cent.

More than six sites were initially left empty, Gray said, and some trade-offs were made because the cost of the land was rising and there was no money to get the buildings constructed. For example, Concord gave the city 58 West Hastings for social housing — which has turned into a controversial Downtown Eastside project — in exchange for building market-value residential towers at the north end of Cambie Bridge.
