CMHC and the Calgary Herald - a new low

Regular readers know that IMVHO Canwest has helped to destroy most of the integrity of Canadian Journalism, now that new owners are in charge of the till, I had hoped for better things.

Well what do you all make of this?

It sure reads like an ad for the CMHC. Yet there is no mention of it being an advertisement. At the bottom it says copyright Calgary Herald.

In fact I am sure it is an ad, even if it is disguised to look like an article (a very poor fawning one at that), by the Canwest organ.

An ad makes the sin even worst. Not content with placing you, the tax-payers at risk, not content with helping inflate the property bubble to the detriment of the younger generation, the CMHC is now spending your money telling you how smart and great they are.

Disgraceful - is the only word that comes to mind.

    WOW. just ... wow. there's lazy journalism, and then there is this. shameful.

  3. Thats just terrible... not much else you can say about that.

  4. Maybe a copy and paste job directly from the CMHC website?

  5. yes, totally misleading. chmc has done nothing but allow people that shouldn't buy get in to the market. they made affordable housing in to unaffordable housing. they positioned alot of homeowners near the brink of financial disaster when the bubble does burst.... and us innocent tax payers will be thrown in to the mix with it.

  6. Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
    It's on a totally different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Great choice of colors!

  8. Hello! I am about to begin my own blog and was wondering if you know where the best place to purchase a website url is?
    I am not even sure if that's what its known as? (I'm new to this) I'm referring to "". How do I go about getting one of these for the website I'm creating?

    and see if the problem still exists.

  11. Hey just came upon your blog from Bing after I typed in, "Blogger: Vancouver RE and then some" or perhaps something similar (can't quite remember exactly). Anyhow, I'm delighted I found it
    because your subject material is exactly what I'm searching for (writing a college paper) and I hope you don't
    mind if I gather some information from here and I will of course credit
    you as the reference. Thank you very much.
