Quoted from the article:
NDP critic David Eby said de Jong is the only person left who has any confidence in the real estate council, given that it is being dismantled and replaced by direct government oversight in a separate bill now before the house. Eby also said the avoidance measure, which involves pre-sale condos, could be a valid technique, although de Jong said there are measures in the bill to forbid such moves.
The Opposition also questioned any involvement by noted condo marketer Bob Rennie, who is also the chief fundraiser for the B.C. Liberal Party.
