REAL ESTATE 4 - City of Glass COMMONS

    • Politics

Real estate mania is at an all time high in this country. And in no place is this more true than in Vancouver. But nobody can even agree on what went wrong. 

Have snooty property owners, overreaching bureaucrats, and gutless politicians allowed the housing supply to dwindle to nothing? 

Or has a network of transnational criminals turned Vancouver into a narco-capital built on dirty money?

 

Featured in this episode: Frances Bula, Sam Cooper, Lindsey Murphy, Jesse Donaldson
