The recent census data from Statistics Canada showed (to no one's surprise) Langford is by far the fastest-growing municipality in Greater Victoria. But on a more surprising note, Esquimalt is the only area besides Oak Bay to shrink. Today we analyze the data with housing expert Leo Spalteholtz and find out why some areas are growing, some are shrinking, and what it all means for housing on the Island.

Today's episode is sponsored by the Bay Centre and Coastal Community Credit Union.
