Brokers are divided on whether they feel Finance Minister Jim Flaherty stepping down would benefit the mortgage industry, despite the finance minister’s history of instituting unpopular mortgage measures meant to cool the market.

    I hope the knee jerk reactionary heads for the hills with his crony Rob Ford both should retire to the dust Bin of life unfortunately I am sure there are several plum appointments waiting for Mr. Flaherty on boards of the Big 5 for whom he as performed as an admirable marionette!

    I agree with Nick. and also I do not believe that Flaherty is elected. I believe he is appointed.

    @ Gaylene: Flaherty is elected to sit in Parliament by the voters of the Whitby-Oshawa riding (well, 58% of them anyway); he is appointed to Cabinet by the PM.

    I think he's done enough damage, why reward idiocy. Oh wait, I forgot, I live in Canada. We like rewarding idiocy here. Conservative, liberal blah blah rhetoric, dogma and smoke screen. Anyone who thinks he saved us from a US style disaster is smoking the same crack as Rob Ford. He's just like Diefenbaker whose inferiority complex to our neighbors to the south left us with the Avro Arrow legacy....I heard him say that buyers show up in a new Audi, to buy a $750K Toronto condo with 5% down (after all he heard this from a Toronto realtor) and that his generation "waited". His generation also probably only paid $70,000 for their first home on a salary that had significantly higher purchasing power than today. He makes me want to hurl.
