Income inequality in Canada making headlines
The Globe and Mail has created the Wealth Paradox series to educate Canadians about the enormous impact of income inequality in our nation today. The piece is extremely readable and filled with edifying examples of how inequality is negatively affecting Canadians’ access to education, health care, and even recreation. Further, it looks at solutions. While the simplicity and directness of the series may be criticized by some who expect more nuance in such discussions, I believe that its strength lies in its accessibility (to those who can afford to subscribe to the Globe and Mail, but that’s a conversation for another time). This is something that we need to be talking about.
