From Ms. Tomlinson's piece this morning in the Globe:
...The papers that (whistleblower) Mr. (Demetre) Lazos provided The Globe paint a fascinating
picture, revealing a network of players – local and foreign – who are
parking money in Canadian real estate. They also show how loopholes and
lax oversight make it easy for the speculators to play the system – and
profit tax-free – by obscuring their ownership and earnings, all the
while treating the properties as commodities, not homes...
This is entirely OUR (and our elected representatives') doing.
Not to mention 'our' banks.
