Home Capital Plunges 41%

You’d think that lending out money for real estate in Canada would be a no-lose deal, but Home Capital Groups shares collapsed 41% at open today:

The embattled lender announced early Wednesday Home Trust has a non-binding agreement in principle with an unnamed institutional investor for a $2-billion line of credit to be secured against mortgages. The agreement is expected to be finalized later in the day. Home Trust will have to pay the investor $100 million to tap the line of credit and interest will be charged at 10 per cent on outstanding balances.

[…] Home Capital isn’t the only lender that’s worried about liquidity,  southseacompany points out that EQ Bank has secured a 2 billion line of credit from the big banks “just in case”. […]


The fentanyl crisis keeps on going and going. I have a question for you data and stats guys, what happens with this crisis? Does the heroin use peak as people who overdose drop off? Or could the drug attract more new users than the rate PFM death knocks them off. Have studies been done on this or is fentanyl mixed with heroin somewhat new? Surely it peaks and then trails off?

Fentanyl is sent from the motherland to clean up the “western garbage” and provide clean and healthy environment for the new settlers and land owners. The next thing they will deal with transgenders, gays and everyone else who doesn’t fit the model. Similar what chickenpox did to natives.

Today, it’s the straight white man who doesn’t fit the model.


You have seen the studies in the US wrt the lower and middle classes life spans shortening. With no economic hope, this continues.

Lol… former MP Garth Turner has suggested that Home Capital’s decline may be a sign Canada’s overheated housing markets are headed “over the cliff.”



Breaking!: “Rumors circulate of Chinese government detaining Anbang chief Wu Xiaohui”
Chinese social media platform WeChat erupted Wednesday with reports that Wu Xiaohui, chairman of Anbang Insurance Group, has been detained by authorities in Beijing.
Chinese authorities have also halted all of the insurance giant’s overseas investment, according to reports early on Wednesday.


Chinese authorities have also halted all of the insurance company’s overseas investment deals, according to the reports
The investigation centers around loans worth around hundreds of billions of RMB that the Anbang chairman has allegedly obtained illegally. He may have also used the illegal loans to invest in the stock market, as well as to transfer assets overseas in a questionable manner.
In Canada, we welcome all corrupt and illegal money, doesn’t matter whose blood is on it.


Home Capital didn’t identify the lender in a statement Thursday, though people familiar with the process said the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan is backing the loan. The Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP) is a Toronto-based plan, which represents more than 321,000 health care workers in Ontario, with assets of about $70 billion. HOOPP president and chief executive officer Jim Keohane sits on Home Capital’s board and is a shareholder of the mortgage lender.

>>> surely no shenanigans whatsoever going one here…

Mr. Zhao will create a partnership with a foreigner for the price of 3 per cent of the property, and $1000 per year.


once the election is over krusty will sweep stuff like this under the rug. besides she will further ease the rules by adopting the toronto fbt framework. the student loophole busts the whole thing wide open making the need to pursue schemes like this pointless

HQ Vancouver’s ‘success stories’ suspect as Asian companies sputter or fall under scrutiny

Abdul Lahazi

“Many Chinese companies are “immature” first-generation outfits with “murky” ownership structures”.
Where have we head this before? These companies are mostly frauds and fronts for illegal activities to launder cash out of China, or are simply fake fronts for any number of reasons. The issue with China is they simply cannot move beyond their communist roots into a free enterprise economy. They are always looking for an “angle” to cheat their system because that’s all they know.

No, all is well. It is a part of the national culture and Canada embraces multiculturalism.


China exposes whereabouts of corruption fugitives

Chinese authorities Thursday released information on 22 corruption suspects who have fled overseas, including their possible current whereabouts…

Cheng Muyang, former chairman of Hong Kong Jiadali Investment Co., Ltd. and former manager of the Beijing subsidiary of Beifang International Advertisement Company, was suspected of embezzlement and concealment of illegal gains. He is believed to be living in “Oakridge Community, Vancouver, Canada,” according to the notice

Oooh, that sounds terrifying.

I live in that neighborhood. I will keep watch I hope there is a reward.


Extradition treaty please. Trudeau is always going on about how great China is. If they’re so great let’s send them some scalps and really buddy up to them. Canadians don’t want these criminal scum here anyways.


Careful what you wish for. The Japanese during the 1930s comes to mind. But dont expect the same results.

The essence of our times is one of Financial War, Trade War, and Currency War. Global ashats want to move here for the freeride,to get a slice… not actually want to integrate into the Canadian matrix. They are petrifried to actually work and add value. Sadly i see the day when their uselessness is laid bare. They are really only good at consuming Free Social Capital built on the backs of the Canadians born here, despite what the historical record suggests about immigrants. They add little, except more debt for the UN deep state pigs and their plans.. which you dont wanna know. More debt, and More debt… thanks morons.



Dug up this article from December. Lol at the author. Sounds like the typical ignorant and arrogant Canadian. “It can’t happen here ” because we are too prudent and don’t take risks and don’t do shady things. Never the case when the “market” or more aptly put Ponzi scheme is driven by 3rd world locusts.

Bank stocks still trending down today….


on the debate, it was clear weaver stole the show while horgan and krusty did little to convince any fence sitters. unfortunately, this also plays into the premiers hands. i suspect once the election is over (and according to horgan, it is) christy the crook will wipe the silly smile off her face and move ahead with all the plans (both announced and ones deliberately kept under wraps) she is itching to unleash on the public. once all is said and done, the next 4 yrs will be her last term and final opportunity to make hay, so to speak. first move will be to harmonize bc’s FBT rules and conditions with those of toronto. should the HCG situation result in a meaningful shock to the credit markets and RE prices in Cda, expect both wynne and clark to water… Read more »


Christy reminds me of Neville Chamberlain, working the appeasement routine. Try and spot WinstonChurchill. He’s out there, in many a blackbook, meddling in the clusterfck abdication.



Here’s what’s not going for Home Capital

A reputation-crushing OSC investigation (the company maintains its innocence; the first hearing is May 4)
A run on deposits
A cost of funds that just hit double-digits (at least for the short-term)
Broker perception (a material percentage of brokers may no longer refer it business)


co clearly had its head in the clouds for too long and/or thought they could weasel their way out of the clusterf&%k they created without anyone noticing. now out of total desperation they do deal with the devil and are now bringing on advisors to explore “strategic options”. the big 5 banks turned their heads on HCG 18-24 months ago and will most certainly not be interested in buying them complete with all their baggage. perhaps someone will kick the tires and possibly cherry pick the carcass (leaving the toxic mess for the likes of you and i to choke on). hopeful longs should take the opportunity to cash out of the shares while they are up somewhat this morning on relief rally, bottom fishing and short covering.



‘Focusing back on the USDCAD cross. This whole time, current account in Canada has shrunk versus that of the US while unemployment has risen relative to that of the US. Normally, I would try to be a contrarian and look for reasons to fade those fundamental changes.
