Re: What must the governments do to stop speculation?

The person buying would, of course, include the assignment payment on the purchase of the condo to their ACB. You buy an assignment for $100K on a $500K condo meaning you paid $600K for the condo - when it comes time to sell, you are going to use $600K as your ACB.  CRA can very easily now go back ...
