Abstract:  Raphael writes with authority on the problem of inequality and poverty in Canada. Income variability has increased while social assistance and minimum wages have not kept people up. All levels of government have slashed monies that could have been used to diminish inequality. He holds that inequality is the root of poverty and to change that we must seriously reconsider our social justice policy so that it gives the most vulnerable adequate income and employment, assess to education and support for social networks.
