B.C. has most heavily indebted population in Canada.

The people's debt: B.C. has the most heavily indebted population in the country — and the number is growing

""A growing number of B.C. residents are running this emotional gauntlet. Beset by stagnant incomes and rising prices, B.C. posted a 42 per cent increase in people going bust over the past four years - far higher than the 11-per-cent national increase.

It's little wonder insolvencies are surging: B.C. has the most heavily indebted population in the country. The average B.C. consumer has $37,879 in consumer (nonmortgage) debt. That's 40 per cent higher than the national average.""

Oh my goodness, don't let Captain Awesome or zyzzx and their cabal of sheep see this thread!

They'll flame it to heII because it doesn't fit with what they like to believe.

Everybody knows everything is just fine and the streets are paved with gold, LA LA LA LA LA... and to ponder otherwise is heresy!
