Canadians in poll said house prices are too high!

Two-thirds of Canadians included in a recent poll said the government should get more involved in the housing market to ensure the system is fair.  Half of all people in Angus Reid's poll say house prices are too high where they live, a ratio that remained true even outside the two frothiest markets of Toronto and Vancouver.


That's one of the main conclusions of a report released Friday by the Angus Reid Institute, based on the opinions of a representative randomized sample of 5,867 Canadians who were polled online in the first two weeks of February.


Across the country, two-thirds of those polled thought the government needed to intervene more in the housing market. The remaining third thought that government should stay out and leave it to the industry to manage.

It's not clear, however, what form of intervention that should be. The questions didn't specify a particular level of government or method of intervening.


All in all, the poll found that more than half of respondents — 56 per cent — of Canadians who live in cities say housing prices in their area fall outside of what could be considered "reasonable."
