The Stephen Harper era has made us too partisan, extremely fearful of our neighbours, cheerleaders in world affairs, less tolerant to new immigrants and refugees and mere observers in the affairs of our country – instead of active actors. We have let our government create two-tier citizenship for us all.
The best long-term solution to this dynamic is to strengthen the government safety net to the point that getting benefits from one’s employer seems like a weird, outdated anachronism. We’re not close to that yet. Until we get there, keep in mind that corporate enthusiasm for the “gig economy” is the same as corporate enthusiasm for robbing Americans of their livelihood.
