Six Reasons Why Toronto Will Not Incorporate A Foreign Buyers Tax

http://torontorealtyblog.com/archives/14734 This story will just  not  die a natural death. It’s been a month since all the hoopla about Vancouver’s 15% “foreign buyer tax” started, and I never thought we’d still be talking about it into September. It doesn’t affect us here in Toronto, and yet the s...

Re: Chinese people built Canada, They built Vancouver, It's what makes it Great

let's make Vancouver great again. get rid of all the riff raff that exists here and kick their ass back to the prairies and maritimes. or back to ottawa, they can cry to them while occupying the lawn in front of parliament in a tent.

Re: The dragon in the room: Hostility toward rich, Chinese newcomers

if meek and docile little socialist hippie canadians are too stoned or drunk to understand the value of the property they have been squatting on for generations then it's their own fault that someone who has money actually is bucking up to bring value and enjoy their lives in paradise. if they see l...

Re: The dragon in the room: Hostility toward rich, Chinese newcomers

locals can still afford mortgages. just maybe not in the amount that they were able to afford. i just got a mortgage for $730K, payments are only $2800 per month Canadian born and raised here. no help from no one. on another note, the interference by government to instill housing affordability chang...

Re: The dragon in the room: Hostility toward rich, Chinese newcomers

geyser, i see your point. but a lot of them aren't here most of the time they wont be using too much infrastructure services. of course no one likes a drain on education system or medical system but many local people do drain it and they don't pay any or much tax either.  all i'm saying is it's wron...

Re: The dragon in the room: Hostility toward rich, Chinese newcomers

is this tax going to make homes more affordable and especially at the entry level? no, of course not. the politicians are laughing all the way to the bank at the expense of all the peons they've fooled. agreeing and loving this new taxes is just stupid and no different than just intentionally hurti...

Re: The dragon in the room: Hostility toward rich, Chinese newcomers

The whole point of my original rebuttal was that this view is bullshit.   Everyone knows that its all foreigners, and this tax correctly targets all foreigners equally.  The only people that seem to think this is all about the Chinese are a) the media, and b) the Chinese community.  Unfortunately, ...

Re: The dragon in the room: Hostility toward rich, Chinese newcomers

you have some points but some of these discriminatory practices need to stop. even though caucasians do hold the majority of government jobs there are non caucasian faces showing up all the time. however things like voting and such most canadian people don't even care about.  they cannot vote in ou...

Re: The dragon in the room: Hostility toward rich, Chinese newcomers

the new face of Canada is emerging and it's a good thing. the previous occupants fucked up. Sounds like you are pretty racist, most of your comments in this section have racist undertones.  Canada may not be perfect but its been a pretty great place for many years, if its so fucked up, why are all ...

Re: The dragon in the room: Hostility toward rich, Chinese newcomers

this is getting off topic. the original intent of the article is not about a 15% foreign buyers tax.  the whole original article was to point out that hardworking successful technicians, scientists and businessmen, people (ie. Chinese or of Chinese/Asian heritage) are being targeted as scapegoats t...

Re: The dragon in the room: Hostility toward rich, Chinese newcomers

one not need to look far at how our perceptions shaped by media can cause racist attacks. ie. muslim community. 

this issue is not much different than the muslim one. it's just a different shitty reason which has been amplified and magnified.
