Chrystia Freeland talks income inequality, wealth distribution, economic mobility, stagnant incomes for the 99%, and more in this TED Talk from 2013:

This is the kind of thing that I was hoping for from the Liberals when they took office in 2015.

Agreed.   Where are the structural changes?  Why do house rices keep booming but incomes aren't?  How is this being paid for??  Why are banks and the finance industry still allowed to rip people off and not act in their best interests while taking hush-hush commissions from mutual funds they recommend to clients etc.  We've mostly been getting deficit spending, that's not much of a solution, it's just kicking the can down the road.

I think the CPC and Liberals have the banks, housing developers, and corporations in general in their pockets.  Same at the provincial level, and municipal.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.
