"But he points the finger particularly at the real estate community which he says has turned its back on federal laws, particularly reporting to financial regulators, the Real Estate Council of BC, which he says appears unwilling to hold agents accountable, and politicians who are afraid they’ll be blamed for popping the bubble"

Yep, I agree.

“I know these federal and provincial ministers talk a good game, but what have we actually approved?” George said. “There is a lot of room between the rhetoric we hear politically and reality.”  http://www.bnn.ca/pipeline-delays-carbon-tax-haven-t-helped-attract-investment-former-suncor-ceo-1.759137

Canadian Nigtmare Dead Ahead

.
It was late in the evening on Sunday, April 30, when lawyers working for Home Capital Group Inc. dialled into a call with lawyers representing the company’s new lending syndicate. The troubled mortgage lender had negotiated a $2-billion credit line just days earlier, emergency money the board felt was needed to survive after a high-profile run on deposits at subsidiary Home Trust. The company planned to draw down the first $1-billion from it the next morning, May 1.
 
But the deal was getting bogged down in a last-minute dispute over details of the funding, according to two sources familiar with the talks. As the conversation proceeded late on Sunday, it became increasingly evident that the fate of the financing was hanging in the balance. Another call at 2 a.m. on Monday ended badly with no agreement, a source said.
 
There was no room for error. Home Capital was hours from the start of its business day, and it was critically low on capital. The board had determined the company could not open its doors for business Monday morning without the financing in place, the sources said.
 
As the dispute continued, officials from Canada’s banking regulator, the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI), were on standby to launch a process to take control of the company Monday, a move that would have almost certainly forced some form of wind-up of Home Capital’s business, the sources said.
 
In the end, some time prior to 7 a.m., the lawyers hammered out a deal on final terms of the loan, allowing the first $1-billion to be transferred Monday. When business started a couple of hours later, only a small circle of exhausted insiders knew how close the company had come to collapse.

MCAP has over 61 Billion in outstanding mortgages, many are uninsured.

Blatantly obvious many years ago. How much damage has been done?

How much family grief will this cause going forward?

Ask yourselves, who were the SHILLS selling all this debt?
