According to a recent United Way report (United Way, The Opportunity Equation. Toronto, 2015), the City of Toronto risks becoming the income inequality capital of Canada, with the gap between rich and poor households in the city widening at double the national pace. Toronto’s growing income divide risks dampening social mobility, increasing inequalities in health outcomes, weakening community bonds, and undermining economic stability. How would the Candidates of the University-Rosedale riding represent and address these issues within the federal government, should they be elected members of the House of Commons of the 42ndParliament of Canada on 19 October?
