A blog on Tumblr highlights the many attractive properties in Vancouver that are currently sitting vacant.

    I am not surprised that there are many empty homes in Vancouver because most of the owners are from Asia, in particularly mainland China. These investors have their businesses in China and uses their money that they got out of China to make these home purchases in Vancouver. They do not want to rent out their properties but they are not really living in these houses because they live in China.
    I fully agree that these empty homes should be used to house homeless families or students who cannot afford to live in Vancouver.

    Another solution is to raise property taxes for offshore property owners, and use that money for the homeless.
