@prev: “Until the late 70’s, Vancouver was a backwater without any “world class” pretensions”

Well you’re certainly right about the “world class” pretensions, but I would disagree about the “backwater” part. What did the city have before 1975?

Performances by the Beatles and every other major entertainer.
NHL hockey. And CFL football, of course.
More corporate headquarters, including a major airline.
More industry.
Vibrant arts scene (more so than today IMHO).
Commonwealth Games (miracle mile).
Visits by various movers and shakers, including Howard Hughes. 🙂

I think Vancouver is really more of a backwater today.

“People are looking to get locked in to competitive deals, say experts, as Britain’s household debt reaches record levels”

“It comes after recent comments from Bank of England Governor Mark Carney that interest rates could rise from their historic low level of 0.5% around the turn of the year.”

“China Is Already Doing Janet Yellen’s Job for Her”, Bloomberg http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-08-12/china-is-already-doing-janet-yellen-s-job-for-her “A strong currency has created headwinds for the U.S. economy through a range of channels. Latest actions of the Chinese central bank will intensify the negative impact by fostering more dollar appreciation. The U.S. already runs a significant trade deficit with China, and a 1.9 percent yuan devaluation announced Tuesday will further exacerbate it” “A stronger dollar weighs on U.S. growth through weaker exports, cheaper imports, devaluation of overseas profits and a sharp increase in domestic labor costs in non-dollar terms. It creates a more restrictive economic policy, thereby accomplishing the same goal as higher interest rates. In short, currency appreciation is doing at least some of the heavy lifting for policy makers, and could therefore mitigate the need for rate normalization to occur sooner rather than later.

190,000 Canadians in Hong Kong just lost voting rights – if treated as second-class citizens, will they act like them?

@Madashell – Yes awesome…. I love it. Now if they can just do this and take away the Canadian citizenship and rights to our generous social benefits as well to this group of original locust and every other Canadian in name only people around the world, that would be just awesome.

Considering these people got free K-12 education and extremely subsidized university education all the while paying no income tax and collecting every known benefits, while living in HK, I say good riddence.

@vangrl – You are a f*ing idiot…that’s all I can say, a total world class idiot….

The guy’s presentation and the nice lunch is worth the $40, which was sold out with 250+ guests. He was balanced and stuck to the facts gathered from the trenches. Whether you like the conclusion or not doesn’t change realty, and frankly you aren’t in any position to change anything.

btw, how do you know when your city’s RE is really popular in China? When a tax cab driver in China can tell you accurate market price for South Granville lot!

And why hasn’t closing the Investor Class Program done anything to RE? Cuz it represents just 1% of all total economic immigrants Canada accepts per year. So a drop in the market.

“Tories pledge to let Canadians withdraw more money from RRSPs to buy homes”, Financial Post http://business.financialpost.com/personal-finance/mortgages-real-estate/tories-pledge-to-let-canadians-withdraw-more-money-from-rrsps-for-homes “The Conservatives pledged Wednesday to let first-time buyers withdraw as much as $35,000 from their registered retirement savings plan accounts to buy a home, in a yet another election move aimed at the housing market.” “Some have suggested boosting the credit for renovations will further inflame still red-hot housing markets in Toronto and Vancouver and increasing RRSP withdraw limits is likely to draw further ire from those worried about inflated prices and a potential collapse in real estate prices.” ““(Boosting the limit) gives people more money and that could drive prices even higher,” said Brian Johnston, chief operating officer of Mattamy Homes. ” “Housing bear David Madani, of Capital Economics, has already suggested the housing policies of the government are going make a potential… Read more »

That’s great but I don’t just want to find out how many homes are foreign owned, I want to know exactly what he proposes to do about it once he gets the data.

I would also like to hear the other three leaders give their take on what they would do – in detail.

Nothing will be done.

Foreign money will continue to pour into detached homes.

Harper is helping out new homebuyers get into debt…thats all he is doing with his measures.

I may just jump into the home building industry and deny HAM and foreign money and immigration….very close to doing a 180 and calling you guys racists. Many people are making good money doing so.

Is making good money
Planting well placed articles and anecdotes in the media

To buy homes they themselves have overpriced
In the fear that they will be priced out forever.

@18: “A re-elected Conservative government would spend half a million dollars next year to figure out just how many foreign investors have eaten up condos and homes across Canada, many of them sitting empty year-round.”

How is he going to do that given the land registries, which are under provincial control, don’t keep track of foreign ownership?

And claiming he can do it for half a million dollars? That is a complete joke.

He is just taking a cue from his evil twin in Oz – making meaningless noises about RE ownership while bringing policies to pump up prices.
