The article was titled "Why does a corporation own Mayor Gregor's Vancouver home?" We can't speak to that particular issue, but damn that kitchen does look awfully similar, doesn't it?
So it begs the question, if even the Mayor of Vancouver is bailing on the Vancouver real estate market, has the slide begun in earnest?
Especially since this move comes a mere six months after it was revealed Robertson had divested himself of the company he co-founded, Happy Planet.
First Robertson sells his Vancouver based business, now he's trying to dump his overvalued - and overpriced - home (one faithful reader advises it's assessed at $1.6 mil). Is Gregor reading the city's economic tea leaves and pulling stakes before it's too late? Sure looks like it.
