SURVEY: 61% Of Canadians Expect Next Generation To Have Worse Standard Of Living

Canadians are growing more pessimistic about the future.

A survey by Nanos Research reveals growing pessimism among Canadians about the future standard of living.

61% of respondents say that the next generation will have a lower standard of living, while just 10% think the standard of living will be higher.

19% think it will be the same, and 11% are unsure.

Pessimism increasing rapidly

In 2017, the gap between those who were pessimistic and those who were optimistic was 50.7. This represents a dramatic worsening from 37.0 in 2016, and 11.8 in 2012.

So, as time goes on, Canadians are getting even more pessimistic about the future.

This survey is yet another data point showing the huge gap between the narrative pushed by the government and many of the elites, and what we keep hearing on the ground.

As the Trudeau government tries to get credit for supposed economic “growth,” that growth is concentrated in a small elite, and most Canadians aren’t feeling it.

Now, the revelation of the Paradise Papers shows the lack of confidence and lack of loyalty the elites have towards Canada’s economic future, since they stash as much of their wealth overseas as possible.

As long as the government remains committed to only serving the elites, and imposes more taxes, more bureaucracy, and more regulations on the rest of us, this pessimism will continue to grow over time.

Governments that lie, health care falling apart and overwhelmed, Politicians sucking up to illegals and importing a culture that intends to destroy this country, education systems that are graduating students that are illiterate and self entitled, political correctness running rampant, leftists who hate everything, males becoming effeminate, dictators running the useless UN, environmentalists bent on shutting down the world, migrants invading everywhere and in Canada are being invited by the millions. Useless carbon taxes will likely do the worst damage as governments want that money and there will be no change other than less money for people to live on.… Read more »

you are absolutely right on and the idiot ,and his govt can take most of the blame,Imagine letting a person that has never accomplished any thing in his spoiled life actually running a country, no wonder where in a mess

As I’m sure you know, “carbon taxes” are actually REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH – directly into the pockets of Liberal government officials. America, China, India and pretty much every other country in the world except Canada have refused to implement them because they have absolutely nothing to do with climate. Have you ever asked your MP exactly how that money will be spent and what research and calculations have been done to determine, beyond any doubt, that that action will change the climate? Your survival tactics are identical to mine – and I DO mean identical, except that I can guarantee… Read more »

That is what happens when you allow the bandits to have the keys to the banks.


From the SYDNEY HERALD Canada’s PM Justin Trudeau sabotages Trans-Pacific Partnership, shocking leaders Spencer the media in Canadian may hide and protect their useless narcissist Justin international behaviour from the the general public but when it comes to foreign reporting reporters from every nation is there to see to outcome to the TPP deal for their own countries to end up finding out that this bozo in Canada has other plans.
