Letters: FINTRAC legislation is a mess
Real Estate Magazine
What a mess. I speak of the draconian and ugly FINTRAC legislation that Prime Minister Harper passed in 2008. It is a total flop. One hundred and ten thousand members of CREA along with thousands of other small business persons were mandated by law to carry out secretive legislation to "spy for the state," all in a shroud of secrecy. Harper sent the RCMP to hold meetings with the Realtors. When a Realtor asked, "What if I don't comply?" the RCMP said, "We will arrest you." The RCMP stated, "We will do the best we can to protect your identity." What a farce that was. They can't even protect themselves from all their scandals.

The Huffington Post

Future Shop closure creates worries for REIT growth prospects
Financial Post
The demise of Future Shop highlights just how much pressure real estate investment trusts will face in the coming years, say analysts. Best Buy abruptly shuttered 66 Future Shop stores last week as it faces growing competition from online retailers such as Amazon.com Mark Rothschild, analyst at Canaccord Genuity, said the closures show that REITs will be pressured as brick-and-mortar retailers continue to lose ground to online competition.

Housing market hints at changes with declines in key cities
The Globe and Mail
The housing market is a system that transfers wealth from young people buying first homes to long-time owners who sell. It has always been so, but in recent years things have gone a little crazy. That's why the latest developments in the housing market are so notable for two groups — young adults despairing over their ability to afford a home and the people whose financial plan in retirement puts a lot of importance on cashing out of the family home.
