The above tweet references the following comment by Muzzlednomore;
The full text of this Wall Street Journal article was sent to me by someone who reads here but does not post. It demands some response from this community! It’s written by an American who is (rightly, in my opinion) upset by Vancouver’s real estate tax on foreign ownership.
Amongst the article’s notable quotes is: “Nationality-based taxes are among the worst kinds of protectionism.” Instead of ranting solely against a Canadian tax of this nature it would have been marvelous if the author had acknowledged the nationality-based tax imposed by her own government against all its sons and daughters – including her! – who no longer live within its borders. Perhaps the author is unaware. Perhaps Brockers would like to enlighten her.
