“Also, one thing that #China is hiding is the number of death caused by the virus. Credible Chinese media outlet
@initiumnews interviewed people working at local cremation centers, confirming that many dead bodies were sent directly from the hospitals to the cremation centers without properly identifying these patients, which means there are patients who died from the virus but not adding to the official record. That shows the current death toll of 133 that we are seeing is way too low.”

real racism versus imagined racism

Coronavirus: French Asians hit back at racism with ‘I’m not a virus’

REAL:
Shana Cheng, a 17-year-old Parisian of Vietnamese and Cambodian origin, told the BBC that she had faced humiliating comments on a bus in the city on Sunday from both young and old.

“There’s a Chinese woman, she is going to contaminate us, she needs to go home,” she heard one passenger say. People looked at her “in a disgusted way, as if I was the virus”.
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-51294305

IMAGINED:
Parents (including Chinese) wanting families who have traveled from china to self quarantine.

“Stéphane Nivet, head of Licra (the International League against racism and anti-Semitism), said no newspaper would have dared use the headline “Black alert” so it was clear there was a problem.”

What a fucking idiot Stephane is, “yellow alert” is a commonly used terminology. “Black alert” doesn’t exist.

Sucks for Shana though, for all we know she’s never even set foot in Asia.

we’ve always had those things here but we can see them amplified to a comical degree in the diaspora. imagine you lived in a country where everyone acted like that? your medical system would be overloaded with hysterical people running in demanding treatment while people with real problems are pushed aside.

“ Fifty-six airlines serve YVR. Of those airlines, Air Canada, Air China, China Eastern, China Southern Airlines, Hainan Airlines, Sichuan Airlines, Beijing Capital Airlines and Xiamen Airlines offer service to mainland China, according to YVR spokesperson Jenny Duncan. Duncan noted that the airlines make the decision whether to cancel flights and not YVR.”

Regardless, there still will be unnecessary inflow of crap until clowns realize to isolate the entire China at least until corns virus gets extinct through vaccination and immunization. That might take a while but totally worthwhile from many reasons.

Welcome to the sellers market of 2020. Sorry for the bad news, but it’s back to bullish for me. The NDP are done meddling in the market. While it created a short term bearish market, that has now run it’s course. Nobody is complaining about the NDP and even their supporters aren’t screaming for them to do more on housing. What’s going to happen going forward is some of that lost demand from 2018 and 2019 is going to flow into 2020 and 2021. Sales volumes will be above normal (but not at the peak levels) and we just don’t have the supply to keep the market in balanced territory. Money is cheap and it’s going to remain that way. At some point, we may even get cuts this year. An external economic event does not seem to be on… Read more »

“…implies that laziness…”

Are you for certain you are searching for something here? You keep confusing yourself about what is going on in reality, and distorting the context to your liking. How about work harder means pulling a second job, or some pull a third job? In your perfect economic textbook, noone had to pull a second job, everyone entitled to a Point Grey house with white fence. You have never seen a hark working people before? Well, lucky you to be born an elite. It would be to your advantage to donate your textbooks to the library, and get to reality.

You can, of course, disagree all you want. You are also a speculator yourself, you know that right?

Werner Stein

“Noone is entitled to anything. Work harder.”
The rambling and nonsensical response implies that laziness is the cause of the housing crisis.
I disagree.
It is the criminals, drug pushers, corrupt politicians and greedy speculators that have created the housing bubble.

In a fumbling, and muddled attempt to justify their social crime, the pumper claims that his disgusting and destructive speculative activity is an economic driver.
I disagree
Construction and all its multipliers work best in providing jobs and housing without the crooks that cause booms and busts and the distortions to the economy.

It’s hellarious that a few “pumpers” here have to take a blame for inflicting wound on the whole society. Take off your angel mask, will you.
If it is not for the home owners and RE investors, the ones that you called pumpers, where do you think a portion of tax base come from? How are social welfare and schools funded? Hell, the homeowners even foot the bills for the druggies, incase you don’t know.
Without the investors buying RE products, buildings don’t get built because the developers can’t get financing. I don’t need to tell you who would suffer more in this 1% vacant rental market.
Noone is entitled to anything. Work harder.

It is truly amazing, how the RE pumpers on this board employ diversion tactics to minimize the suffering they inflicted on the most vulnerable in our society.

Imagine the terror thrusted upon an elderly person who has been dislodged from the neighbourhood they have lived for most of their lives.

Or the single mom, who has to tell the kids they will have to move away from their school and friends, because they have been renovicted and can’t afford a roof over their heads in the city they were born in. while thousands of homes are vacant.

These depraved pumpers claim to be appalled by harmless hyperbole, while their wickedness causes real suffering.
