    Well said Tal !!!
    Wake up Canadian law makers before it's too late. If you continue to sleep, a crisis of domestic consumers being priced out from the country’s housing markets is inevitable and many many will be at the mercy of renting from Foreign landlords. Currently government is assessing new measures to tax us Canadians more, how about a hefty Taxation for Foreign Real estate investors.

    Unbelievable! Tax, Tax, Tax.... As if more taxes will solve a problem. Will it be given to Canadian citizens who purchase homes to reduce their purchase price? I doubt it - and the cost to administer new taxes always takes away any percieved benefit. if foreigners have millions of $$$$ to invest any tax amount would seem insignifcant to them, especially since they feel their money is safer being here.
