2 richest Canadians have more money than 11 million combined

The two richest Canadians have the same amount of wealth as the poorest 30 per cent of the country combined, according to a new report from a group of international aid organizations.

The report also said that the world’s eight richest people have as much wealth as the poorest 50 per cent of the world’s population.

“This is not a report about the rich and the poor. It’s about the super-rich and the rest of us,” said Lauren Ravon, the director of policy and campaigns at Oxfam Canada.
