New Taxes Have Backfired

According to Veteran Broadcaster, Stuart McNish 'Vancouver's housing market is a political and financial minefield' and 'measures to create housing for those who can't afford Vancouver's sky-high real estate appear to have backfired'.  

We agree and you can explore the stats on our website homepage which reflects these pressure points;  prices of condos in Whistler, Squamish and North Vancouver trending well into a seller's market and single-family homes continuing to tank.

McNish, the man behind the TV programme Conversations That Matter, has discussions with thought leaders on issues shaping our world sharing unique insights and experiences to inform and enlighten.  Here's an interview with Tom Davidoff, Associate Professor at the Sauder School of Business, the man many see as the driving force behind the tax initiatives that have been introduced.  He explains the theory behind why the Government has thrown the concrete into the economic engine of BC.  This is well worth a watch.
