We are tentatively planning a road trip this summer which would take us north to Vancouver Island, then we are thinking of working our way over to Nelson. (Then down, hopefully, to see some of the Channeled Scablands on the way back to Oregon. [more inside]

BC'ers - how do you calculate the rate of income tax you should be paying? After googling I'm coming across wildly different rates for brackets, as well as terms like 'average rate' and 'marginal rate' (what are these? The internet doesn't want to tell me!) I normally do my own taxes at home (UK) but am being driven round the bend trying to get the figures for this.

How long has BC's Highway 16

I'm trying to find a place to live in Vancouver for 5-6 weeks this summer. It needs to be someplace that I can take transit to Simon Fraser University each day, and preferably someplace a skinny male will not be scared to walk alone at night. [more inside]

A friend has just moved from mainland China to Vancouver, BC. Her English is pretty good, but not perfect (she speaks Mandarin). Her only work experience is in teaching.
I'm at the other end of the country, in Ontario, and want to do what I can to help her integrate and find work, but am hindered by my location and complete lack of immigration experience/knowledge. What helpful advice, tips, and resources can you share with her?

Will any British Columbia vineyards ship ice wine to California? A former supervisor, who lives in California, got me a job interview in Vancouver that went really well. I'd like to express my appreciation with something suitably Canadian. [more inside]

I am currently a philosophy student at the University of British Columbia
(Canada). I've applied to transfer to the Institute of Philosophy
at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven
for their strong involvement with continental philosophy, and because I want to live in Europe. Will getting a Belgian degree significantly complicate things for me if I choose the pursue a graduate degree in North America? Will it be detrimental to getting in to a good school?

I remember a couple years ago that the U.S. was trying to get Canada to follow the American drinking age limit of 21, especially in British Colombia. So, if you go up with an American ID, it must say 21 instead of 19. Does anyone know the status of this law change or if it was well-accepted by Canadian governments?
