Justin Trudeau's unveiled part of his economic platform. It centers on two parts: creating a child benefit package, and raising income taxes on the rich.
The Liberals say their plan is aimed at helping the middle class.
But Dr. Ian Lee, professor at the Sprott School of Business, rejects Trudeau's premise outright.
He says StatsCan data doesn't support the notion that "the middle class in languishing."
Study after international study shows that Canada's middle class is, in fact, the wealthiest on earth.
I note that Trudeau has been criticized for trying to replicate U.S. President Obama's class warfare style campaign in Canada. Lee says that Trudeau's plan is certainly "much more of a political document than it is an economic document."
