Since the power of multinationals now exceeds that of governments, deomcracy cannot prevent multinationals from taking far more than their fair share away from those that produce the goods - both labour and intellectual effort. They also steer the agenda of politics in a way which undermines democracy.

Hence you have widening wealth disparity everywhere. This is not defensible except by free market ideologues. It laughs at the concept of ability and meritocracy.

And Canada does do better at wealth disparity than the US.

This is the problem at hand, not whether Liberals speak left and govern right, like duh, we all see through that old story.
