Inequality of wealth has increased drastically in the US over the last 40 years, with consequences that we currently see unfolding there. Take a look at the web page of Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor in the Clinton administration, https://robertreich.org/post/613497899639291904 Some of the observations in his new book, The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It apply to Canada as well as the United States. Fortunately, the NDP provides us with a political alternative not available to Americans. But we need to be aware of how the very rich affect Canadian society, too.
