Re: Should the government intervene?

if the goal of higher housing prices is to push the riff raff away from affording it, i'm all for it.

the less bums and vagrants we have the better.

think about it, it's a drain on our system. they don't contribute yet they consume. they are on social assistance.

they are takers, not givers.
as he takes an insured mortgage that I am backstopping. 
the irony is hilarious.
my new $730k mortgage to invest is not cmhc insured.
because i had more than 20% down from my current principal residence equity.

my starter house was cmhc insured back in 2003. 

no need for cmhc ever since.

according to the City of Vancouver new developments are required to have 'bum' units mixed in with everything else 
the bum units will devalue the surrounding area and units because vagrancy will permeate and linger. especially the odor

Many people don't know that it isnt anywhere nearly as open as you think. For example the price of milk is set by the Government here. lol

The problem with the cherry pickers is that they live in the past. This is the present. 

Sentiment continues to harden against foreigners, Even someone born in Hong Kong and representing Richmond is joining the mob. She used to be the  Parliamentary Secretary for Multiculturalism!

A lot of these bum vagrants come from all over Canada

i find it laughable that they are complaining about affordable housing when they came here from back east for a handout.

it's common sense, let the wealthy buy instead of giving it away to vagrants from back east and alberta. makes no sense to give prime property away to the whiney crybabies.

They bring drugs, they bring crime, they're rapists.

free country.... if you want restrictions on movement and the government telling their own citizens what they can or cannot do, go to China... or even better North Korea.  You'll probably like it there more.

Haha :lol:
Sounds like a Donald clone.  :roll:

Fact today is that the strongest resistance comes from local residents.
"Code Red: Young Vancouverites hope to ‘squeeze back’ before they’re squeezed out

Anger about rising prices and stagnating wages has reached a boiling point. But what will it take to channel the outrage into change?
... “We need to really ramp up of efforts,” Kershaw said. “We have just over half a year before the next provincial election.

“Numbers mean influence. We have 26,000 members, but if we really want to be influential we need to have more than 100,000 — and to get them before next election.”

http://www.metronews.ca/news/vancouver/ ... rices.html

These were the guys you laughed at last year. Well, they're local and they vote.  Christie Clark is running scared. So should you.  :!:
If RE prices don't cool down, the blow back could escalate to a Brexit referendum. Then, that will restrict immigration.

The biggest welcoming comes from the natives and the people actually here.   There are pockets of of envy and xenophobia around though.

The problem is that there are deluded people who cherry pick. Worth reposting this.

Yes, the welcome has worn thin. Has been for many years.

the stalling part is a lack of education and coarse language.  there is so much welcome here it isnt funny. there are minor pockets of whining of entitlement here and there.

You can never educate the bias and greedy. They get eaten every time.

Meanwhile, even as interest rates rise...

"Canada's Record Household Debt Is Threatening Its Financial Stability

Canada’s debt, swelled by a decade-long housing boom to almost triple the size of its economy, is drawing increasing concern from an international banking community that says it threatens growth and financial stability.
The combined debt of Canadian governments, companies and households reached $4.4 trillion in the first quarter, or 288 percent of gross domestic product, exceeding the same gauge for the U.S., the U.K. and Italy, according to the Bank for International Settlements.
While Canada boasts the lowest government debt load among Group-of-Seven countries, household debt is the highest of its peers, the Basel, Switzerland-based BIS said last month in its quarterly report. In September, Statistics Canada reported household liabilities rose to 100.5 percent of GDP, exceeding the size of its economy for the first time..."

Citizens residents visitors with intelligence know that the cost of borrowing is low and lower and looking at foreign media is not related to Canada.  Add some envy as well.
