(LifeSiteNews) — According to the president of one of the nation’s largest real estate firms, institutional investors who have been buying thousands of homes in America are now doing the same thing in Canada.

Referring to the trend as a “new phenomenon,” ReMax Canada president Christopher Alexander told CBC News this week that while institutional investors have primarily been focused on American real estate, he suspects that the practice of large corporations buying up real estate may become more common in Canada now that prices have begun to decrease amid interest rate hikes.

“The lower you can buy as an investor, the higher the chance of selling high,” Alexander told CBC News. “They are well capitalized, they are smart and they have the means to make an impact in the marketplace.”

While billion-dollar companies have been buying homes for decades, a shocking study out of Harvard found that more than one-in-four homes sold in America in the first quarter of 2022 were purchased by these “institutional investors,” which real estate firm Redfin says is a “larger share of America’s homes than ever before.”

While the trend is likely larger in the United States, the number of homes purchased by these investors in Canada remains unknown, as both Statistics Canada and the Canadian Mortgage Housing Corporation (CMHC) told CBS News that they do not track that particular set of data.

UPDATE 8/17/22:

SIGN & SHARE the petition supporting farmers whose livelihoods are being attacked by extreme environmental policies and countless media outlets. 

----------
UPDATE: The farmers' protests are spreading

 

Protests led by thousands of farmers have broken out across the Netherlands, and they're now spreading to Italy, Germany and Poland - this is a fightback against not just environmental regulations and the resulting inflation, but also the elites' Great Reset agenda.

While the demonstrations themselves have been overwhelmingly free from violence on the affected farmers' part, the response to them has been anything but: Earlier this week, Dutch police opened fire on a 16-year-old tractor driver during a protest in Heerenveen. 

While -- thank God -- this unfortunate incident did not result in any deaths or injuries, a formal investigation is still forthcoming, and farmers and concerned citizens now know, without question, what measures could be pursued in order to silence opposition to backers of the international Great Reset, which could spell doom for the livelihood of farmers everywhere.

That's why we're asking you to SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of farmers across world against intrusive, overreaching policies of globalist organizations and political leaders who seek to prioritize their own extreme environmental ideology over the ability for everyday farmers to earn a living and provide for their families and communities.
 


Of course, these kinds of extreme environmental policies are not only a threat to the livelihoods of farmers in the Netherlands, or just the nations that comprise the European Union, for that matter: These regulations most certainly can (and inevitably will) make their way to every corner of our world, including countries like YOURS.

In the Netherlands, specifically, lawmakers recently approved legislative proposals to significantly decrease greenhouse emissions by the end of the decade, most notably ammonia and nitrogen oxide, which are common in farming.

This plan, as championed by Christianne van der Wal, the Dutch Minister for Nature and Nitrogen Policy since January, seeks to exceed the globalist EU's agreement among Member States to reduce greenhouse emissions as a means to combat climate change by at least 40% by the year 2030, replacing the desired percentage with an even loftier 55%.

As a result, it would seem almost inevitable that thousands of farms could find themselves in jeopardy within the coming years, but Dutch farmers have no plans to stand down; in fact, this embrace of EU and World Economic Forum (WEF)-style environmental demands is the primary force behind the ongoing protests by as many as 40,000 farmers, who, in response, have taken their tractors to highways across the Netherlands, making an unmistakable statement of resistance reminiscent of that of the Canadian Freedom Convoy truckers in order to protect their livelihoods.

Similar protests have also broken among farmers in Italy, as you can see here:
 


Such policies are a clear tenet of the Great Reset, pushed by globalist entities around the world like the World Economic Forum. Look no further than the WEF's own "Net Zero Challenge," which seeks to coerce participants into cutting all greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050, and will inevitably threaten countless jobs and livelihoods in the process.

Let there be no doubt: these extreme environmental policies and transgressions against working people cannot be expected to stop any time soon.

That's why we must take this opportunity to make our voices heard -- whether you're a farmer, yourself; work in an industry that would be negatively affected by such policies; or simply support the hardworking men and women in your country and others who wish to maintain the freedom to provide for their families without excessive government and globalist interference.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of Dutch farmers, and farmers and workers across the world, whose livelihoods can and eventually will be harmed by the extreme environmental demands of globalist entities like the EU and WEF seeking to implement the Great Reset.

Thank you!

Although the figures remain unclear, institutional real estate investment companies like Blackstone and Core Development Group have revealed their plans to invest billions in the Canadian real estate market while at the same time denying their actions would negatively impact ordinary citizens.

“We expect to continue to be very active in the Canadian market, particularly in areas like logistics, high quality creative offices and life science offices, studios and multifamily residential,” a Blackstone spokesperson told CBC News, adding that the company has “no intention of investing in the single-family housing market in Canada.”

Core Development Group, however, does have plans to purchase single-family homes, and earlier this year announced it is going to spend a whopping $1 billion on such homes in Canada with the goal of holding them in perpetuity as rental properties.

With Blackstone and other companies being listed as “partners” of the World Economic Forum, many remain concerned that the transfer of ownership from individual citizens to large corporations is part of the WEF’s “Great Reset” agenda, which says by the year 2030, “You’ll own nothing and you’ll be happy.”

The Great Reset is a radical socialist plan designed by global elites that “seeks to ‘push the reset button’ on the global economy” and establish a radical New World Order that seems to closely emulate many aspects of the Chinese Social Credit System.

In addition to reducing home ownership, the WEF has also laid out plans to eliminate private car ownership as part of a series of “mindset changes” needed to encourage people to “go from owning to using.”
