My broker had an awesome comment on raising the downpayment:

Its only going to limit housing to those from wealthy families, since the majority of new buyers have part/all of the downpayment gifted to them.

Flaherty would be much better served to adjust the TDS/GDS ratios – did you know you can get a 46/47% TDS ratio with good credit (>700), and unlimited GDS with a credit score of only 680! It used to be 40% TDS, 32% GDS with no exceptions.

The comments from the Banks and Builders are hilarious – of course these measures will limit new home buyers – what did they expect? that 100% of Canadians should own a house? they are starting to see the fallout of eating into future sales by allowing first time buyers to buy sooner than they could normally afford.
