Christy Clark: 15% tax on Foreigner BUYERS of residential property. Why not penalize the Foreign SELLERS with a 15% tax too?

Why did the BC Liberals penalize only Foreign Buyers?

Why not apply the 15% tax on Foreign Sellers as well?
 
“I can’t speak to the truth of those specifics, those concerns considering the source, but I will say that the reason we brought in a 15 per cent tax on foreign buyers is because we want to make sure housing is available for British Columbians to be able to buy at a reasonable price.”  -  Premier Christy Clark

The point is .... the Foreigner property owners should be treated equally. They all pay the 15% tax.
