So does this mean it really was lack of supply and not the Chinese driving the market?

WTF was he thinking?  That they wouldn't notice all their pears were gone?  So weird.

11% of insured mortgages in deferral. 

I read last week that of deferred mortgages, 25% were two or more mortgages in deferral.

~90% of the negative commentators towards Evan of CMHC were either a “Realtor” or “Mortgage Broker” in their twitter profile headline. 

They didn’t like facts and logic ruining their party.

a girl...probably in her late 20s with very little writing history just out of community college.

Owen deleted his non-apology to this Journalist. Which again is Peak VanGroovy Snowflake since he is demanding an apology from CHMC President. Apparently Owen is very anti-facts and pro-sensitive when I comes to himself.

Good to hear that CDN politicians don’t care about money laundering. 

Money laundering is probably good for money launderers and people holding multiple properties looking to unload some of them.  Or something like that  I don’t know  or high prices are good for us all  whatever realtors and politicians tell us at the given time

It’s racist to even talk about money laundering, let alone attempt to do anything about it.

Remember when the BC Liberal party (Rich Coleman) shutdown the RCMP division who was tasked with investigating money laundering?

If you vote for them before any of those executives go to jail you’re a fucking moron.

Rich Coleman is corrupt as hell. Him and his wife have a land development company, and you would not believe it... they inevitably get all their permits passed. Hooda thunk?
