In a letter obtained by The Canadian Press, Tim Syrianos tells the president of the Ontario Real Estate Association — whose CEO is longtime Tory Tim Hudak — that the organization should turn its focus away from political contests and affordability in the Greater Toronto Area, and stick to its mandate to promote the province's housing market as a whole.

"It is misguided and ill-advised to attempt to supplant TREB and overtake our expertise and well-respected voice in our marketplace simply for media headlines and political gain," Syrianos wrote in the letter to OREA president David Reid. ...

In his letter, Syrianos detailed concerns about the recently launched OREA ad campaign, called "Keep the Dream Alive," saying it is far too negative and suggests that the dream of home ownership is dying — pointing out it will have a particularly negative effect on the Toronto market.
