It's very similar to Darwinism, you cant have the majority of the population rich with beautiful homes and tons of money in the bank. The capitalist market works on the pyramid structure, we need lots and lots of people in the bottom to keep up the middle, and middle people to prop up the upper crust. Thinking everyone should have a affordable home which cheap payments and excellent hourly wages is stupid. Everyone can't be royalty, there needs to be common folk.
Crying foreign money is stupid, its a capitalistic market. What ever foreign money is doing you can do to, its not like they have access to homes for purchase that you are not privy to, its just they have more money. The mentality is similar to the Automotive union jobs pre 2008. Just squeezing more and more money out of the union. To a point where high school drop outs doing manual labor is getting paid huge sums of money. Trying to use the government to control housing is liken to using a union to unfairly hinder a "free" capitalistic market. It just doesnt work, its not communism.
Also only the strong survive, its a tough thing to swallow, the smart people can adapt and use the situation to their advantage, realtors, brokers, banks.. who ever is making money now. The smart money should be rewarded, not people who were born with a certain citizenship and learn to bitch about it when the grow up to get rules changed into their favor. House to expensive to buy??? study harder, save money and send your kids to university. Move in with a family member to save costs.. Maybe your kids might have a chance at buying a house in the future. ALLOT of these sacrifices were made by Asian immigrants in the 70-80's. Now allot of them have a leg up and their kids have found more success.
Lots of people make fun of East Indians for having multiple family in 1 house. What ever it takes to survive and get ahead. Canadians think they are above this........
I say we just tax the foreigners and they can go elsewhere.
Yes - Canadians are all lazy. That 18 year old Asian student with a $200k sportscar and a N sticker probably worked his way to that car - LOL
Hypocrites unite!!!! Demonizer, tdma and yzfr1 enjoy the free fall!!!
