Real Estate lawyer Steven Pearlstein was quoted in "Expect court challenges to law banning non-Canadians from buying property" in The Toronto Star on November 11, 2022.
The article examines the federal Prohibition on the Purchase of Residential Property by Non-Canadians Act, what it is, and whether the law could be deemed unconstitutional. Steven comments on Sections 91 and 92 of the Constitution Act, 1867, and its potential application in resolving what the author feels will be a likely Supreme Court decision.
Steven will be speaking on this topic at the Law Society of Ontario's Six-Minute Real Estate Lawyer on November 17, 2022. More information: http://bit.ly/3TvfM4G
