And hilarious that he's promised this before in a previous budget & didn't deliver....like most people today give a rat's patootie about concert tickets. Egad!

Ottawa exploring Halal mortgages

The federal government says it plans to explore new measures to expand access to "alternative financing products, like halal mortgages."

For many Muslims, religious beliefs include restrictions on paying and receiving interest. Halal mortgages can be structured differently.

There's no commitment yet of new money, legislative changes or regulatory updates, but the government said it started consulting last month with financial services providers and communities "to understand how federal policies can better support the needs of all Canadians seeking to become homeowners."
I thought this was a fake news when I read it but I guess it’s not…

The apparent reality of these halal mortgages, is that they don't pay Interest, but the fees paid are so much that it actually costs more than the interest one would pay. Its also very misleading (quelle surprise), all banks BUT the large 5 already offer these.

So. Yeah. But I wouldn't doubt JT would somehow fudge this up.

You know it's a bad idea when

Bill Morneau says hiking the capital gains tax will stunt Canada’s economic growth.

of $183,000.


Other than that it's an asset, why should wages be fully taxed but capital gains get a bye? I get that it would hurt but they wouldn't be in that situation if the value hadn't gone up so much.

Default Remember that 1/2 the population...

has an IQ of less than 100 and they all vote. Armorman may be on to something. The the members who said that they will do anything to stay in power are of course correct. Just what are they offering and to whom? As I have said they need to hold on to the seats that they have, not a sure thing by a long shot and get 10 more, the 10 can come from anywhere, the Bloc or the NDP are the most likely.

Are there enough devote Muslims for this to help the Libs? If there is nothing wrong with the idea, will PP follow suit?

If the Libs move up in the polls we may have an election sooner than later.

- This is going to serve as an ad hoc inheritance tax. You may not have over $250,000 of capital gains in life, but your estate may on death.

Regardless of whether this or any of the other budget changes have the desired effect, I'm not in favour of giving this government any more money to spend on filling the country full of "students" and dumping all over the West.
You make it sound like [highlighted] working is just a walk down the garden path. A lot of people work their tails off in all kinds of weather and in pretty crappy conditions, just to make that paycheck. They spend years away from their families and put their health and life at risk in some instances. I personally think people that actually work to make money deserve to keep more of it than the investors that only put their spare cash at risk in the stock market, or buy a rental unit where inflation makes it's value go up tenfold.

I don't disagree, Canuck. However, I think we're confusing a couple of different types of risk here. I'm talking strictly about compensation - payroll is a priority for any well-run business/investment, so employees still get paid even if things take a turn for the worse (with some exceptions, obviously). Whereas the investor will take a haircut the moment that happens. How many small business owners do you know that earn less than their higher-paid employees or are the first to take a pay cut when things go poorly? I know I know several.

If business isn't going well, the owner doesn't make any money, but they still have to pay the worker.
Employees all want a bigger share of the profits, but they shoulder none of the risks.

I'm not talking about selling it, I'm talking about an asset being passed down. CanuckShooter can't keep the family farm because it was bought for $20k in 1915 and now the government says it's worth $6M, you own $2.4M in taxes please.

There isn't capital gains to be paid on your example of the increase in price of that 1980's home if it was a principal residence.

He said it was farm land, second sentence.

He gave two examples; the first was farmland (which has a $1.25 mil. exemption), and the second was a 1980's home in Van or T.O. which would fall under the primary residence capital gains exemption of the person who bequeathed it.

Succinct and accurate assessment on damage this capital gains tax will cause. The implications are far more widespread then the obvious.

Forgot to mention Singh and Trudeau screaming hatred at grocery stores… yet when Vashey put Singh to the question about is 4% profit margin unreasonable and he wouldn’t answer it.

Now the woke are putting up shop lifting posters.

Lipstick on a pig. It’s not that they don’t understand, it’s that they’re still selling us woke chit right till the bitter end. Drop the writ already. Lieberals aren’t going to pivot, expect more of the same. They’re not deaf, they just don’t care.

Couldn't agree more! They're not stopping until the country is in ashes. They'll make it so difficult that successive governments will have a tough time making it right or begin to make it right.

What a BS. In the end they still pay interest.

I had religious friends that they were supposed to be fasting. I was eating meat sausages and they were eating plant based ones missing the point that fasting is about refraining from eating, not eating something else.

Same here, they pay interest but call it something different.

Bobble head made a statement that people with savings in their account should be out there spending it to bolster the economy. Me thinks she has her eye on that source of extra money they can scam us out of once the digital I.D./currency kicks in down the road. Once they have access to our accounts then it will be like play money for them especially when they can restrict our access. Something like the musings of power companies using millions of EV's to store their power and being able to draw on that power whenever they need it. Go to use your EV in the morning and the battery is drained, go to use your account and money not accessible. What a future.
