A growing issue in Vancouver real estate is that of foreign buyers. Statistics Canada claims that non-resident foreigners own 7.6% of the value of homes within the city of Vancouver.
Now clearly it is possible to talk about this issue without devolving into racist generalizations and hate, but some commenters on this site have a very difficult time doing so.
There are a number of parties that have no interest in changes to the current market and these parties are served best by angry racist rantings. What better way to distract from the issue at hand and paint any discussion of foreign buyers as racist?
So good job you knuckle-heads, those that profit in a run-away housing bubble thank you!
