All the issues that have been rearing their ugly head over the last couple of decades have hit their boiling point. Inflation is insane, so insane that the cost of living month over month now gets more difficult to maintain. The concept of the middle class died long ago, you are either rich, or poor on government assistance. Immigration is ridiculous, so ridiculous that they will literally just take anyone and their dog in at this point for fake prosperity points. Even though these are the same people that add very little to the economy and just drain the already strained government services. You cannot say what you think, you cannot go into a building without a middle, and you cannot go even on an evening out with out having the violation of personal privacy known as the Vax passes.
Housing prices are some of the highest in the globe at this stage, and more people by the day are losing their collective asses because of the absurd cost of living anymore. All of the jobs have been outsourced to third world shit holes. The ones that are left, barely pay enough for the basic amenities. The taxing has gotten so out of control that you can kiss a good chunk of your pay cheque goodbye off the top.
The only solutions are the same neoliberal dog shit solutions that have never worked but yet you still have the same bugmen advocates still pushing the same dogma, it's a fucking crap shoot really. My advice to anyone thinking of coming here, don't.
There is a watchdog article (I will link it when I find it again) stating that Canada now has more than 1 million homeless people (this includes the hidden homeless, working and living in their cars) due to our outrageous costs of living. If this is true, in a country of only 38 million that is a shockingly high amount of people. That would also mean our poverty rate is about triple the U.S per capita. As I said before, working hard will not get you ahead in Canada.
