Most of the middle class have moved down, not away (A Tale Of Two Torontos – Dec. 16). In this recession, many people who have been laid off can’t find replacement jobs. They’ve become statistically invisible – moved in with parents or gone on the rising rates of social assistance. Maybe the big difference since the 1970s has been a change in attitude toward fair tax redistribution. This is the most effective way to reduce poverty. All it takes is political will.
