Stupid or Liar

You need to think of this like an engineering problem. Eliminate the variables and see what affects the markets.

Facts over the past 10 years or so:
-Immigration has been fairly consistent
-Construction has increased over this time
-Housing starts were at record highs recently
-interest rates have been low and flat for 10 years, in fact its like this everywhere
-wages are stagnant and low

So nothing has changed in Vancouver over 10 years, EXCEPT construction is higher. Therefore more construction will save us? All proponents of more construction are either stupid or they are liars.

All the factors listed above are internal to market, meaning its affected locally. Therefore if we can eliminate all these factors the answer must lie with an external force: foreign money.

Sponsored by developers?

Wow, this show must me sponsored by housing developers. It’s very one sided and anti-tax.
