A new poll shows that residents of Vancouver would be in favour of taxes on empty homes in their city.

    I fully agree that an additional tax levy on absentee home owners as they are not part of the community while people who live in the community and support the community cannot afford to own a home in their own community. Empty houses project a negative image to the community as they are not attended probably both externally and internally which can affect the house value of
    the area.

    Why would foreign investors buy homes and not do anything with them? Could they be making potential grow ops, meth labs? If you are not a canadian citizen living in Canada then you should be taxed triple. so if taxes are $4000 per year, then they would have to $12K per year. Time to tax the rich and let the middle class breath and save some coins for their future.
