Find out what investigative reporter Kathy Tomlinson had to say when she hosted an 'Ask Me Anything' session on Reddit about her work on Vancouver's real estate market and how some speculators are using loopholes for financial gain.

Tomlinson's latest story revealed how Canadian banks' mortgage guidelines favour foreign home buyers.

She has also recently reported on how loopholes and lax oversight are making it easy for a network of local and foreign speculators to play the system, and, in the process, fuel the steep rise in Vancouver home prices.

As a result of that story, the Canada Revenue Agency has launched a review into the actions of B.C. real estate speculators.
