‘Ugly Christmas sweaters’ are big business in Vancouver
Co-owner of trendy East Vancouver retailer says demand has “skyrocketed”

Chris Boyd and Jordan Birch founded the ‘Now That’s Ugly Society,’ a group dedicated to celebrating the holidays while wearing atrocious sweaters. They’ve been hosting ugly sweater parties for over a decade.

The pair has even petitioned the City of Vancouver to declare an “Ugly Sweater Day.” They’ve been selling buttons in support of their campaign, and donating the proceeds to charity.

The basic premise is this: everybody makes money except the consumer.
 

 
On CBC TV’s Doc Zone:
The Condo Game examines the forces at play behind the fastest moving condo market in North America — Toronto – and discovers that the glittering glass hides a sea of troubles. The first startling revelation for many people will be how very much the condo market is focused on investor profit, not affordable housing. One expert even says that it’s really not primarily a housing market but a commodities play. And that means that average Canadians, just looking for a place to call home, are joining a game for which they don’t have the rule book.

unveiled at the Canada Europe Energy Summit

 

 
The ‘Felt Impacts of the Tar Sands’ artwork to be unveiled at the Canada-Europe Energy Summit in London.
Giant artwork depicting the Canadian tar sands and the devastation being caused to ecosystems, species and First Nations communities launched by street felt-artist Lucy Sparrow outside Canada House in Trafalgar Square on Tuesday 19th will unroll an ambitious artwork outside Canada House in Trafalgar Square at the annual Canada-Europe Energy Summit next Tuesday. Inside, Canadian minister Joe Oliver will meet with the UK government, the CEO of BP, Bob Dudley and other major players in the tar sands industry to discuss undermining EU climate legislation to open up global markets to Canada’s highly-polluting fossil fuels [3].

The giant felt work will block all three doors of Canada House as ministers and industry representatives from Shell, Enbridge and others arrive. It will depict in graphic detail the devastating impacts of Canadian tar sands extraction, which is undermining Indigenous treaty rights and destroying ecosystems communities rely on for traditional livelihoods.

Canadian Minister Joe Oliver last week vowed a renewed attack on the Fuel Quality Directive by launching a report which aimed to undermine efforts in the EU to reduce emissions from transport fuels [4] . With the southern portion of the Keystone XL pipeline already in place, tar sands may be entering the EU in as early as 2014.
