B.C. seeks public input on consumer experiences
By

British Columbians are invited to share their feedback about buying products and services, which will help inform potential improvements to B.C.’s consumer protection laws.

The Province is launching an online public survey to help identify gaps in B.C.’s consumer protection laws and understand any effects they have on British Columbians.

The consultation will open for feedback on May 16 and close on June 13, 2022, and will be available in traditional and simplified Chinese, Punjabi, Tagalog and French.

“The world is changing, and as consumers and businesses adapt to the times, we need to ensure the consumer protection we’re offering British Columbians stays relevant and robust,” said Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General. “Changes, such as online shopping, an aging and diverse population and significantly more debt, have created new challenges and vulnerabilities for consumers. It’s time we addressed them.”

Royal wardrobe: a look at Queen Elizabeth’s unique fashion style
By

From diplomatic dressing and priceless jewels, bold block colors, and pearls to tweed and a headscarf – Britain’s Queen Elizabeth is known for her unique wardrobe and style. Brightly colored outfits with matching hats and umbrella trim, black pumps, and her omnipresent handbag have become staples for the monarch, 96, who marks her Platinum Jubilee this year.

“She has developed her consistent signature style,” said Elizabeth Holmes, author of “HRH: So Many Thoughts on Royal Style”. “She has the same shape hat, the same silhouette of coat, those fantastic block black heels, her three strands of pearls. But then also within those guardrails, she has a lot of fun with fashion… The queen is famous for her block colors.”

Those colors have ranged from canary yellow and bright green for the weddings of her grandsons Princes William and Harry to purple and pink for the horse racing at

Julia Fox Goes Grocery Shopping in Underwear
By

Julia Fox isn’t afraid of freezer burn. On May 15, Fox was spotted grocery shopping in Los Angeles, but instead of sweatpants and a messy bun, the model stepped through the automatic doors in a set of matching lingerie. As she ran her errand, Fox was dressed in a black bra with white elastic and a matching pair of underwear layered under a denim blazer. She styled the look with her signature jean purse, a pair of ruched denim boots, and black sunglasses.

As photos of Fox’s unconventional grocery-shopping look circulated online, fans were quick to express their disbelief over the risqué ensemble. “Oh sure, when Julia Fox goes grocery shopping in her underwear, she’s a fashion icon.
