AIRBnB entrepreneurs see losses

With less travel during the pandemic, overnight landlords are seeing big drops in demand.

For years, Cheryl Dopp considered the ding on her phone from a new Airbnb Inc. booking to be the sound of what she called “magical money.” A property she rented out in Jersey City, N.J., on Airbnb could gross more than $8,000 a month, she said, double what long-term tenants would pay.

Now, Ms. Dopp associates the dings with cancellations and financial misery. The 54-year-old information-technology contractor said she had about $10,000 in bookings evaporate overnight in March.

But what happens when the safety nets disappear? That is when the ill-prepared or vulnerable homeowners will be forced to sell. Many of the government programs are expected to wind down in the summer and fall, and we may see a spike in new listings — a great time for buyers but terrible for sellers.

Looks like the most expensive condos are going like hot cakes in downtown Vancouver. Paying >3K/sf is the norm, interesting times…

“ In a recent webinar, a Vancouver housing-market data cruncher suggested there might be a “gap in supply” for condos through 2023.
Berlin also noted that in the downtown core, there is no unsold new inventory in 2020.”

A bombshell report claims Chinese President Xi Jinping personally asked World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom to ‘delay a global warning’ about the threat of COVID-19 during a conversation back in January.

Germany’s Der Spiegel published the allegations this weekend, citing intelligence from the country’s Federal Intelligence Service, known as the ‘Bundesnachrichtendienst’ (BND).

According to the BND: ‘On January 21, China’s leader Xi Jinping asked WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to hold back information about a human-to-human transmission and to delay a pandemic warning.

‘The BND estimates that China’s information policy lost four to six weeks to fight the virus worldwide’.

Vancouver Mortgage Delinquencies Rise 18%
Vancouver is also seeing mortgage delinquencies rise from record lows. The rate reached 0.13% in Q4 2019, up 8.34% from the previous quarter. This works out to an increase of 18.18% from the year before. Vancouver’s mortgage delinquencies are now at the highest rate since Q2 2016, and climbing.

What I’d like to know is WHO are the people behind the huge immigration numbers and the destruction of Canada? No way the Punjab would allow their area to be bought up or inundated by Westerners. The place would be set ablaze before that ever happened. Same with China. Same with anywhere. These people are not Canadians. They are opportunists and speculators who leave overly-populated Third World countries and arrive in a country that’s already clean, paved, orderly, has a rule of law. Who is promoting this destruction? It’s not the politicians. Sure, they are the front people, but they’re either too dumb or too cowardly to ever destroy a country on their own. Who are the “money people” behind the politicians, both Right and Left? The politicians are doing this because THEY CAN, because whoever is backing them are… Read more »

I see I’ve hit a nerve, but name-calling never answers a question. It’s a device used by interested parties who seek to shut you and others up. To call someone a “supremacist” or sometimes a “Nazi” just because they are trying to protect their culture and way of life is ridiculous. In fact, aren’t you the one acting like a supremacist by dictating to us? We are the ones on the losing end of things, the immigrants are the winners, and yet you want to stomp on the face of the losers? “Just shut up and take it, and bow low while you’re doing it”? I asked a legitimate question. Canada takes in more immigrants per capita than any other country in the world. Why is that? What is the rush? What’s the motive? Who is benefiting? Who are the… Read more »

Western civilization through it’s faults, was established and is characterized by white people.

It is strange that these 3rd world people who are not white, flocked and continue to flock to western: therefore white majority countries. They are accepted by whites, and then cry racism when things don’t go their way.

The simple thing for them to do to avoid all this is to immigrate to non white, non western established countries, and then they won’t ever have to complain about racism. But they won’t.

Hmm I wonder why that is?

Laurentian elite who own most of the stocks AND bonds of the Big Oligopoly companies in the country. Like the banks, telecoms, etc.

They are now supported by the west coast developers who give them Vancouver votes.

All made possible by a dumbed down population who is easily manipulated by the owned media. Only 7 families own most of the media in Canada.

But don’t blame us minority people. The people you should direct your anger at is your white policy makers.

I’m not blaming the minorities; they are just pawns. Do I like that so many are coming? No. They might be nice people, but that’s beside the point. They should stay home and instead focus on making their OWN countries great. The people of Canada never asked for any of this. Of course the politicians are to blame, but only partly. If Harper and Trudeau hadn’t agreed beforehand to sell the country out, those with the real power behind the scenes wouldn’t have chosen them as the “front men”. Somebody else would have been chosen to do the dirty work. That’s the deal; they are chosen. “You want us to make you Prime Minister? You play ball.” I want to know who are the movers and shakers behind the scenes, the money people. This has been going on since the… Read more »

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Canada will not be paying for N95 masks imported from China which have been deemed unfit for use by the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Trudeau made the remarks from Rideau Cottage Saturday morning, saying officials are “checking with the supplier” to see if there are alternative uses for the masks.

“But we will not be paying for masks that do not hit the standards that we expect to give to our front line workers,” he said.

Trudeau’s comments come a day after the federal government suspended shipments of N95 masks from a Montreal-based supplier after approximately eight million masks made in China failed to meet specifications.
