Lawrence Wong Quoted in CBC Article

Lawrence Wong was recently quoted in the CBC article “Proposed class action lawsuit alleges B.C.’s housing speculation tax unfairly targets women and seniors.” The article details a lawsuit filed by homeowners asserting that British Columbia’s speculation tax is unfair. 
Lawrence, the attorney handling the lawsuit, states “This tax is a tax grab … a vehicle for [the B.C. government] to rake in more tax money. There is a huge element of propaganda … because the government calls it a speculation tax and unfortunately the people who are affected are seniors and homemakers and people who are married to foreign spouses.
