Via Mr. Smyth of The Province, our fine Premier explains why the Real Estate Board should just keep on keepin' on:
...Should the real estate industry now be trusted to investigate itself?
“They’re a self-governing profession, just like doctors or dentists,” Clark said. “We’re giving them a chance to fix it themselves.”...
And what are the pre-requisites, exactly, for getting into Real Estate School?
And what does the actual 'degree' consist of, not to mention the post-graduate training?
And isn't it funny that the good Ms. Clark did not mention teachers and self-governance and all that.
The piece by Tomlinson, Stueck and Hunter in the Globe is actually far superior, and gets much closer to the heart of the anti-regulatory matter, than does the usual toss-off from Mr. Smyth...Thing is, the header atop the Globe piece is likely all the Clarklandian Wizards care about ('BC promises action on 'shadow flipping' by province's realtors') because in a land filled with deflector spike spin that need last only 36 hours, max, nobody really cares about the 2.6% of the electorate that actually reads the articles anyway, right?
