Vigilante retaliates against realtors who took full-page ad inciting wealthy homeowners to crash Eby’s town hall

By ThinkPol Staff

The Vancouver realtors who incited mobs to crash a popular elected official’s event is about to get a taste of their own medicine.

The major Vancouver real estate brokerage Sutton West Coast took out an ad last week urging people to force their way into and disrupt a town hall organized British Columbia’s Attorney General David Eby to school tax for homes valued at more than $3 million.

The ad, and a letter by BC Liberal leader Andrew Wilkinson asking his supporters to do the same, resulted in Eby cancelling the event citing security concerns[1]http://davidebymla.ca/news/may-1-forum-and-community-office-cancelled-and-closed-due-to-safety-concerns-please-read-davids-letter-below/.

Now, the shadowy Vancouver twitter vigilante Corrupt Wilkinson has started posting details of open houses organized by Sutton West Coast realtors, including the names of the homeowners, and asking Vancouverites to protest against the brokerage’s actions.

“The real estate industry has been the single greatest beneficiary of fentanyl dealers from China laundering money in our real estate market causing housing unaffordable to local taxpayers,” Corrupt Wilkinson told ThinkPol. “They paid the BC Liberals off, and in return the previous government went as far as to shutdown the anti-money laundering unit.”

Corrupt Wilkinson was referring to the former BC Liberal government’s shutting down of the Integrated Illegal Gaming Enforcement Team (IIGET) in 2009[2]http://vancouversun.com/news/local-news/illegal-gaming-unit-killed-in-2009-due-to-bclc-funding-pressure
.

“These career criminals have realized our AG David Eby is both a man of integrity who can’t be bought and an extremely capable white collar crime fighter,” Corrupt Wilkinson added. “So, they’re trying to incite political violence and bully and intimidate the democratically elected government into submission.”

Eby was planning to explain to homeowners that, among other things, seniors and parents of young children are able to defer these taxes under very favourable terms.

“BC Property owners who are disabled, over 55, or with children under 18 years old can defer taxes in a program that has been available since 1974,” Eby explained in a subsequent blog post[3]http://davidebymla.ca/news/the-school-tax-increase-on-homes-valued-over-3m-some-factual-information/. “It is a program that offers extremely low fees, very favorable rates, and simple rather than compound interest. In fact it has been criticized for being non-means tested and actually being too favourable in its terms. Seniors who want to stay in their houses and defer taxes are welcome to do so, and many are already using this program.”

Corrupt Wilkinson feels that they’re duty-bound to come to Eby’s defence.

“I consider it my duty, as a Vancouverite, a British Columbian and a Canadian to [do] whatever I can to support our AG in his battle to defeat white collar crime and corruption lead by Andrew Wilkinson,” Corrupt Wilkinson concluded. “And mark my words, evil shall not prevail in this province.”

    Reminds me of a joke.
    A Vancouver realtor dies and goes to Hell.
    “Why am I here? I’m too young to die! Give me another chance! Please!

    The Devil looks at the Vancouver Realtor and says,
    “Ok, I’ll grant you your wish. I will return you to you previous life on one condition.
    Your soul is now mine. Your children’s soul’s are now mine and their children’s on and on into perpetuity….”

    The realtor looked at the Devil with a confused expression, ” I don’t get it. What’s the catch?” an

    If the home owner has a mortgage on the property, the bank may not allow the owner to apply for deferring the tax. The tax owes to Government will get a priority on the mortgage loan.

    yeah let tax the crap out of all the people that worked there ass off. Committed to owning a home and raising their families to contribute into society. The NDP is about giving to the lazy!

      Gee Colin.
      Apparently “reading and comprehension” was skipped in English class ( not to mention grammar).
      The original “protesters” were homeowners who, through more luck than skill, ended up owning homes worth more than $3 million dollars….and its highly doubtful they worked their asses ( not “there asses”) off to achieve that exorbitant house value.
      No.
      The NDP is doing what the Liberals ( who were in bed with developers and Realtors a la Uber Realtor Bob Rennie….. Christy Clarks campaign organizer) failed miserably to do.
      So your alternative is to contiue on? Letting hosuing prices rocket ever higher until the entire city is owned by out of Province flippers and speccers and rents are sky high?

      Nah.
      Lets let the NDP take a crack at it. I’m sure if it’s a huge failure they will be forced to recind the tax…..but for now….my heart pumps purple pee for a homeowner in the west side of Vancouver that possibly paid $250k for a house in 1980 and will take home $3 million TAX FREE when they sell it…….

      • Gene Nagy says:

        Rescind, not recind….
        Eby is trying a solution. Of course the realtors will hate anything that cuts into their cut.
        Got any better ideas to curb soaring house and rent prices?
        I agree with his attempts.

        Correction, my Mom bought her Dunbar house for $96,000 in 1982!! (old timer fixer upper)
        Now assessed at 4 million

        She defers her taxes despite $9,000 monthly income.

        Certainly she worked hard, but still….

        Go Corrupt Wilkinson Go!!!! Thank you to you and Thinkpol for getting the truth out

    Thanks for the “spellcheck”. I noticed a few errors after I fired off the reply.
    I figured an illiterate Realtor wouldnt notice… 🙂

    I agree.
    At least Eby is trying to solve a massive problem unlike the Liberals boot licking the Real Estate industry and Developers.
    Wilkinson is using the same old political hatchet job to try and rise in the polls….good luck with that.

  7. nonconfidencevote says:

    Well, well wellll.

    Realtors fighting with realtors. Oh the irony.
    Funny.
    Some realtors dont like it when other realtors tell the truth…..

    Apparently its not all “Unicorns farting rainbows” in the Ontario Real estate game.
