The Editor,

Gosh, what was all the fuss about?

Listening to BC Liberal (and even a Green) MLAs, I anticipated giving up an evening to complete the exemption form for the new Speculation and Vacancy Tax.

One commentator said it was going to be 14 pages long. Another said it would take at least 25 minutes to fill in.

I received the notice in the mail today. It was straightforward to understand and took me two minutes to complete the online form.

If this initiative adds more homes to the rental market or collects some revenue from non-resident owners to be used for more housing, it was worth two minutes of my time.

Kim Manning, Coquitlam
