A study from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives published earlier this year shows that Canada’s 100 best-paid CEOs breezed through year 2012 with   earnings higher than the average Canadian worker – $7.96 million compared to $46,634.

There are no words to fully express my sentiments towards this. Some words easily come to my mind to express the reasons behind such discrepancies – words that we would need to name and repeat if we wish to put an end to such an abuse. They are: selfishness, contempt, cynicism, corruption, abuse and patronage. And if we want to push deeper, they are: political parties financing, lobbying, propaganda, media   concentration, diversion of democracy and lack of democracy.
I am sure Canadians do not only think this is unfair. More Canadians must also realize that only an equal sharing of         powers – which would mean a real democracy ­– will lead us towards equal wealth sharing.
