6267...Poverty In Canada: Shame

Andrew Coyne had a piece in The National Post yesterday about how the poverty line is at its lowest number since the peeps at Stats Can have been keeping track of such things.

The number, as of 2011, is 8.8 per cent.  In '65, the first year the numbers were tracked, it was 25 per cent.

Is good.

But is bad too.

8.8 per cent means that 1/12 people in our rich home and native land are poor.

That sucks.
