Apr 3, 2015 — This petition is about protecting current Canadian citizens—including recent immigrants—from the tsunami of international capital that is hitting Greater Vancouver's residential real estate market, driving up prices, and lowering our standard of living as a result. The race or national origin of the investors who are purchasing real estate is irrelevant, and moreover, these investors have done nothing wrong—they are behaving in a financially rational manner within the rules that our government has set for them, and I wish them all the best. The onus to shape Canadian and British Columbian law is on us, not them. In short, any comments that are disrespectful to other cultures or nationalities will be deleted.
