corruption is a bad thing, but these billionaires will always find a way to hide what they have made.

No different than routine money laundering by real estate agents, and you don't see the press covering that angle.

Why is Ho not in jail? If not jail deport him and declare him persona non grata. Criminal Billionaires we don't need in Canada.

David throws one hell of a party, I once saw him snort soy sauce off a hooker's ass

Ho was also a member of the Vancouver Police Board for a time. Very influential https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Ho_(businessman) …

It's all so overwhelming.

What's overwhelming is that 98% of Vancouverites have no f*cking clue what is happening here.

I agree. Burying your head in the sand is so much easier than peeling this onion.

for now, but those same people are about to get buried from head to toes in debt when this crashes.

I've been waiting nearly 10 years for that. I admit I was wrong, this has gone way beyond where I thought it could go. I am done.

that's what bubbles do. The real estate bubble of Japan went 365% over price norms only to lose 85% of total after it popped.

My level of schadenfreude would rise 365%.
