Despite what you might hear from some members of the interventionist left, the middle class is doing pretty well in Canada. In the piece at that link, Andrew Coyne summarizes the research. An excerpt:
Not only are Canadian middle class incomes among the highest in the world, but so is their rate of growth: up 20%, after inflation, in the decade after 2000, allowing us to catch and pass first Germany and now the United States. This isn’t just a story of American decline, in other words. It is a story of Canadian success.
The study confirms previous data showing the middle class in this country has never been as well off in our history: Whether you look at median incomes, real wages or household net worth, the story is the same. (Again, for those in any doubt, these are all in constant, inflation-adjusted dollars.) The more the evidence piles up, the more it discredits the thesis, popular in certain quarters, of a “struggling middle class.”
