The stunning new Three Cities research on growing income inequality in Toronto underscores the urgency of the message delivered by UK epidemiologist Richard Wilkinson during his recent Canadian tour: Inequality is bad for everyone. Poor health is a direct result of income inequality, says Wilkinson in an on-line interview that was conducted during his visit to Canada. And he adds that government policies to privatize essential services and slash social programs only add to the misery and burden of inequality. The Equality Trust web site contains a great deal of policy and research info in inequality. The Wellesley Institute joined with MASS LBP, the Metcalfe Foundation and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives for Wilkinson’s Canadian tour.
