Have your say: Flaherty unsure of 2015 election run

by |
His decisions have not been the most popular among mortgage brokers and some may rejoice at Jim Flaherty's recent announcement that he is unsure whether he will run for Finance Minister in 2015. But not so fast.

With Flaherty -- who has instituted mortgage rule changes in bids to cool the housing market four times since 2008 -- finally intimating that no further measures are required for the time being, perhaps it's worth considering that a new minister may not share the same view.

So it's time to have your say. Will the mortgage broker industry benefit if Flaherty decides not to run in 2015? Click here to vote now.

    Let me chime in first...better question is what would a Liberal or NDP finance minister do for our industry?

    In my own opinion, I believe that Jim Flaherty does a relatively decent job as Finance Minister, he tightens the mortgage rules because he does not want to see a financial crisis similar to the Americans in 2008. Frankly, PC or Liberal win does not make a big difference but I favor PC because I believe they have more qualified candidates for their cabinet.
