Default Canadian bankruptcies soar in December 2008

The number of Canadian consumers and businesses that went bankrupt in December 2008 increased by almost 50% year over year according to the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy, which is an Industry Canada agency. It looks like things will get a lot worse, before they get better as well.

I've said this many times, but I'll say it again - We are lagging US with a year or so in almost everything. This simply means that things here will get a lot worse.

The fact that you said it many times doesn't make it true. I don't see us lagging Americans in anything.

Sure, you can stay in denial as long as you want, or until you run out of money . I'm guessing it will be the latter.

And why is that? Because of all job losses we had lately (much higher than US % wise)? Or because of the free fall our economy is in? Or am I missing something?

No, it's not depressing. This will bring the prices of rents down, which will allow shop owners to make some profit. I remember my local Toronto pub, had to close because the landlord increased their rent to $15,000 per month, and this was rather small pub. Now in the same space there is a t-shirt store selling t-shirts for $50 a pop. I give them 3 months from now at most. Once they are out the stupid landlord won't be able to find a renter even for $10K.
