Is Canada in a housing bubble? We posed that question this week in the Great Debate, a new Globe Investor series we're hoping will become a model for discussions about the big issues facing Globe and Mail readers.
Today, they face off in a final online debate at noon (ET).
So far, the debate has been lively. Here's what some of our readers have had to say:
“As long as mortgage rates stay low, and there is nothing on the horizon to suggest that this wouldn't be the case for many more years, the market wouldn't crash.” –Dan_Theman
“The housing sector is a ticking time bomb. Interest rates cannot stay low forever.” – Business Genius
“If you are of the opinion Canada is solely made up of Toronto and Vancouver, then yes, ‘Canada’ is in a bubble. However, in every other regard, we are not in the same situation as the much-compared U.S. housing bubble.” – Clint MacNichol
Readers are central to the Great Debate. In fact, they get the final say. After today's debate, we'll be asking readers to vote for a winner.
