Woe Is Me!
For Mr. Turner, however, the little guy is the bleeding upper middle class.
Halton, on the edge of Greater Toronto, is full of them: Mr. Turner chronicled their plight in his speech.
He recalled talking to a man whose house "was worth maybe half a million - modest for his neighbourhood. He told me it felt like his life was being squeezed now from all sides. Property taxes, income taxes, GST...'All I've got is this' He kicked the bricks at his front door."
Then there was the woman who decided to stay at home and raise her kids. Her husband makes six figures, but "our friends who have two incomes make a lot less, and always have more money to throw around. The system is killing my family."
Glad to see someone is fighting for this severely disadvantaged demographic.
