Well, at least we don’t live in Cuba right??

When asked about the biggest income gap between the top and bottom 20 per cent in Canada BC Minister of Finance Kevin Falcon says.. “in Cuba they don’t have any income inequality because they’re all poor”. So what is the Minister saying here? Should the lower 20% should be thankful that we even have an upper 20%? Decide for yourself and let your voice be heard!

He gave no apologies about the findings in this new report, the truth is that B.C.’s income gap has been growing for 15 years, and only Alberta has more after-tax income inequality than we do.

If this is the response from our elected leaders then we should be very concerned indeed. Let’s educate Mr. Falcon on the real issues at hand and what this report means to us.

Tell Mr Falcon what you think about his latest snuff to the poorest people in BC.
