Taxing the rich is a fringe idea.
Years ago, people assumed the rich paid their fair share. Today, most people know the rich don't pay their fair share, thanks to the wealth-defence industry, and a rigged tax system. In fact, 9 out of 10 Canadians, across the political spectrum, support higher taxes on the very rich, including closing tax loopholes, tackling tax havens, a wealth tax, higher income tax on the top tax bracket, and an excessive corporate profits tax. Most politicians now at least pay lip service to making our tax system fairer.
