In times of crisis we need to give more
During the first two months of pandemic lockdowns when the national economy came to a virtual halt, wealthier Canadians saved an estimated $5.3 billion.
Many Canadians have the capacity to give. They should do so. It would create jobs, increase the charities’ capacity to help and make that help more available to those who’ve fared the worst during the pandemic. And it would create a sense of social solidarity at a time of political polarization as Canadians stand shoulder to shoulder simply because they care for their neighbours.
