On April 30, 2013, CCPA Senior Economist Armine Yalnizyan was among the witnesses who testified to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance as part of the committee’s ongoing study of income inequality. This publication is the transcript of her presentation to the committee. In it, she gives us cause to consider what inaction on income inequality could mean, and shares some recommendations on how the federal government can play an important role in offsetting growing income inequality and the problems it unleashes.

Video of the full hearing, including this presentation, is available online via the Canadian Parliamentary Affairs Channel (CPAC).
