There will always be loopholes. 

 

All they need are legal residents as fronts to own the places.

Well the can of worms is already open ,so what the hell is the Government of B.C. going to do with the properties gotten illegally and how can they help hard working people and new generations of our kids to go forward and have an opportunity to own a home.

 

Along with the ill gotten gains of laundering money at Casinos, that's another can of worms to be opened to help the citizens go forward.

?  Care to elaborate?

 

Richmond's the hub and our Mayor is a joke who's put out the red carpet for criminals and corruption.  He and his developer friends and his sidekick, McNutless.  Same with MP's like Peschiolidiodiodiodidiodo.   All getting their piece of the pie as they sold us out.

 

But it started long ago.

 

It's much bigger than what's seen on the surface.  Not just in real estate...schools, luxury cars, casinos, etc., etc.  We have illegal passports, licenses, everything.  We having birth houses advertised as an in.  Underground banks.  Farmland is now massive sprawling mega mansions with walls in front that are NOT used to live in or farm.

 

So much has been allowed to blossom here and now it's in full bloom.

 

 

I think I get his point. There is countless issues in Canada but we have a thread here with over 3000 pages about a US president that everyone posting in it can't even vote for or against him.

It makes people feel better when they can say “we are not as bad as ...............”

Except that doesn't seem to be an excuse for climate change, their hypocrisy is funny that way.

Or make people show where they are getting their money from. Saved up working as nurse in your home country? Come on in! Buying property in Shaugnessy with money that you made off the backs of underpaid workers that tried to kill themselves in your factory only to be caught by a net? GTFO.
