Is there any evidence that there's an active effort in any level of government to prevent barriers to foreign speculation from being erected?

The CRA apparently has known about this situation for 20 years, for example, and yet it seems that no serious effort to investigate or combat the issue has taken place until now.

Or do you think that this is just a case of the various agencies preferring to stay away from trouble?

This is why the brakes should have been put on in the late 2000s, when it was clear that there was a big problem with housing speculation in this city. This is a complete failure of leadership, at all levels. Now this is everyone's problem.
