Bank warns household debt also a hazard

Overvalued housing markets in several Canadian cities and high household debt poses a “clear and present danger” to Canada’s economy, TD Bank warned in a report Friday.
The report flags Vancouver as the market with the greatest risk of a housing price correction, because of an influx of foreign buyers, likely in the order of 10 to 15 per cent.
The study by the bank’s chief economist, Craig Alexander, proposes the government introduce measures to keep personal debt levels from rising further.
The answer is not, Alexander says, for banks to agree to lend less.
“To do so would be collusion,” he said, “and it is illegal.”
