During his speech announcing a national emergency declaration Friday, President Donald Trump appeared to affect a fake Chinese accent to imitate China’s President Xi Jinping — and Twitter users were immediately outraged at how racist it was

You know Trump is doing well when people are getting offended by low level stuff like this. If you really believed Russian Collusion was a thing, this would be meaningless to you, which tells you that nobody thinks anything is going to happen to Trump.

He’s got double the money for his wall, right when some were saying he took a big loss in negotiation… ya whoops. He’s going to get a China trade deal, a new NAFTA, progress on North Korea, ended ISIS, ended the Afghan war, big tax cuts, booming economy… It’s amazing to watch. What has Trudeau done?

Dave

He asked for $5B, Congress gave him a $1.5B and then got $8B more. So that’s roughly double.

The Democrats screwed up. They drew too hard of a line in their negotiation and now Trump looks like the adult in the room and he ends up with double what he wanted. If they gave him $3 or $4B, he’d have a harder time declaring an emergency. But, he’ll take what they gave him, keep the government open and top it up with emergency funding.

B.C. home sales continue to slide in 2019, says BCREA

Cameron Muir, chief economist with the BCREA, blamed the federal government’s B20 mortgage stress test for the decline in home sales.

“BC households continue to grapple with the policy-induced affordability shock created last year by the federal government,” said Muir, in a statement Friday.

This regulation goes against their culture.” Here in BC, we have much more of that shit but we know the main rule “no questions asked” so they can go with their shenanigans as much as they like without playing the race card because we have on-duty race baiters at all levels to ensure their “special rights” are protected.

NDP housing critic David Eby says B.C.’s next government must get directly involved in building large projects that would produce an “expansion of affordable housing not just for the very poor, but for the middle class in Metro Vancouver.”

YVR
Guest
YVR

In addition to large rental housing and co-op housing projects, Eby said the NDP is considering expanding small experimental housing projects in Vancouver, in which sales of condos were limited to people who work in the immediate area of the development. There are also developments that limit how much purchased condos can rise in value (thus limiting a resale price), and require that residents use their unit as their primary residence.

YVR
Guest
YVR

Eby says the NDP would require pre-sales to be taxed at the time of their signing, not the time of occupancy. “We would also close the loophole that allows you to transfer a trust that holds a commercial property, so that the wealthiest investors in the world aren’t paying property transfer tax in B.C.,” Eby said.

YVR
Guest
YVR

The NDP has also promised to relieve the burden of rising rents in the province, with a $400 rebate for each renter household. The party estimates the annual cost of the rebate will be $200 million

In particular, Eby wants to close a loophole whereby a home can be bought by a shell company, which is then sold. Because what’s being sold is now a company, not a property, the buyer can get out of paying the property transfer tax (PTT) and the foreign homebuyers’ tax. More so, the beneficiary doesn’t even have to be named.

I guess Eby is too busy fixing ICBC (as losses increas) to work on any of his housing promises.

Eby said he wants to close loopholes with Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC).

YVR
Guest
YVR

The NDP would also close what Eby termed two “loopholes” in the foreign-buyer regulations: the use of trusts and other corporate vehicles to disguise home ownership and the exemption on transactions of pre-sale condo assignments. Currently, the foreign-buyer tax does not apply to any foreign national who sets up a company in B.C. as long as no more than 25% of the shares are owned offshore, said Christine Duhaime of Duhaime Law in Vancouver, who is considered an expert on Asian real estate.

YVR
Guest
YVR

“[The Liberals] left the speculation of pre-sale condos out of the tax,” Eby said, suggesting it was done to benefit its major donors in the real estate and development industry. He added that the NDP would require registration of all pre-sale contracts on new homes, and the foreign-buyer tax would be triggered by the sale of such registrations, not just on transfer of title.

Just for fun lets go through a pick out some of the bigger lies in this election platform off the first page.

LIE: Build 114,000 rental and co-op homes, and provide renters an annual
rental home credit of $400.

LIE: Bring in $10 a day childcare.

LIE: Eliminate interest on student loans and provide students a $1,000
completion grant.

LIE: Freeze BC Hydro rates and stop Christy Clark’s 42% increase in
ICBC rates.

“he said he had no plans to bring in an HST. ”

September 2010: Documents show B.C. government bureaucrats were engaged in discussions about the HST with their federal counterparts well before the May 2009 provincial election.

For the record I support the HST and Campbell should have been honest with the electorate that he was planning to bring it in.

The Federal government was pushing for the HST country wide because it makes sense to simplify the tax code. Of course they were looking into it here like they look into a whole bunch of policy changes. Some get implemented and some don’t. This subject came up once in the campaign and it was a non issue until it was brought in after the election. It was brought in to Ontario at the same time and it seems to be working there just fine. There is no comparison to this and all the broken promises by the NDP which were front and centre during the election campaigns.

“There is no comparison”

Well yes, as of today there has been no referendum campaign against any NDP policy nor any commenced recall campaign, and John Horgan is still premier,. As opposed to Gordon Campbell who was forced out of office by his own party, which then abandoned the HST although legally it had the power to carry it through.

Don’t worry. It is coming. David Eby’s property surtax was another lie you can add onto the dozen above. It was never in the NDP campaign or mentioned prior to the election but immediately implemented after the election similar to the HST.

“I agree voting NDP is the blow it up vote. Their policies along with the federal Liberals will put BC in a massive depression which will kill the economy at all levels except for HAM related business which will feast on the low CAD when it is hovering around 55 cents.

At this point it looks like another BC Liberal majority. The NDP just does not have a good platform. Add in the left vote is being split with the Green Party while the BC Liberals have no other party on the right to compete with. This may be the biggest landslide in decades.”

He is being accused of pinching a ladies ass over a decade ago. Apparently investigated and debunked in the past. Hardly news worthy.

What are the chances of North Delta detached starter homes correcting $200,000 from these levels?

Abbotsford?

If you want to know how much things will correct just look at how much they went up over the past 10 or more years. It will be a complete reversal.

Tuesday townhall will grill Burnaby South candidates on housing, safety. A community townhall has been set for this Tuesday, Feb. 19, with candidates invited to discuss a variety of topics. On the agenda will be these questions:
– What is the right approach to addressing the need for affordable housing?
– How do we create the jobs that will enable us to build strong, prosperous communities?
– How can we make our communities safer and more sustainable?
Jason D’Souza, Host on CBC Radio One, will moderate the townhall. The event takes place at the Ismaili Centre, 4010 Canada Way, with doors opening at 8:15 p.m. and things getting started at 8:30 p.m.

I am planning to attend this townhall. What questions would you ask to the candidates regarding affordable housing in Burnaby/Greater Vancouver?

” What is the right approach to addressing the need for affordable housing?”

The right answer is “take whatever measures are necessary to bring prices down”. But you wont hear this answer from any of the candidates.

After this correction is over, I don’t think they can do anything with Detached house prices.

Check out the ALR maps. Basically every detached lot is almost accounted for in metro Vancouver. Some left in South Surrey and many in South/East Langley. After that, its north-east abbotsford.

Once these are accounted for. Only option will be densification. Townhomes and condos for future residents unless they move out of lower mainland.

Langley townhomes are now at $700K.

These prices have gone up by $200,000 since the election. Now these buyers are closer to buying a detached in the valley as a basement suite helper means no change in payments.

The price declines have mainly been in >$1.5 million dollar homes in the valley.

But keep cheering on the NDP! They are playing you guys for fools. Demand action on the Low end.

What? Uninhabitable places with 1 bedroom??

I was at open houses and those are all garbage. Be careful of just relying on the internet. Maybe time to step into the real world and see what’s going on. You’d be priced out all the way to Hope.

Get out of your bubble and do some real world foot walking. Cherry picking stats is what got us in the mess in the first place.

Open houses very busy and I’m seeing sold signs all over the place on the valley.

But let’s close our eyes and say everything is crashing.

More fake racist attacks exposed. Even though this was obviously fake from day one the fake news pumped this as credible. Kind of shows were we are at with actual racism when the left has to fabricate it.

We are told daily than openly gay or black people suffer homophobic or racist attacks daily by Trump supporters. Yet this openly gay black man cannot cite a real incident and has to pay 2 men to come up with a fake attack.

From this isolated incident we should probably conclude that racism and homophobia are fake concepts fabricated by the Democrats.

I think you can conclude there is a fake narrative by the media and the democrats that Trump and his supporters are racists. The fact they have to fabricate these racist attacks time and time again proves it.

CNN reporting of this is atrocious. All they say is that there are reports he may have orchastrated it and then read the statement by his lawyers which is obviously a dramatic denial. If they discussed all the evidence that has been released there is smoking gun, but CNN prefers to not go there.
