Income Inequality Un-Canadian: Poll

The Broadbent Institute has launched its new Equality Project with a poll by Environics Research that shows the majority of Canadians view growing income inequality as a big problem with long-term consequences - a problem that undermines Canadian values. The poll also shows Canadians are ahead of their politicians in supporting the need for higher taxes to protect social programs. And this finding: 83% of Canadians support raising taxes on the richest.
