Here is a great chance for Canadians to voice there concern and have input to the next Federal Budget. As for Real Estate here in Canada may I suggest one idea you add in the 'Other' comments.
Ask the Federal Gov't to add in the budget that Canadians who invest in Real Estate and sell their investments that they can 'Roll Over' or suspend paying Capital Gains as long as they invest in another Real Estate investment. This would be big for investors to move their Capital Gains (Profit) to the next Real Estate investment without paying tax yet.
