July 03 – Never Had it So Good

According to headlines, things in Canada are bad, and getting worse. “Not so” says Margaret Wente, writing in the Globe and Mail. In fact, she says “we’ve never had it so good.” She believes the now familiar portrait of Canadians as reckless borrowers and spenders is wrong. Stats Canada says “the average wealth of Canadian families climbed 73% in real terms between 1999 and 2012.” Every income class showed gains. Whether you endorse the “gloom and doom viewpoint or the optimistic good times is up to you. But I am happy to report to you that there is good news, and it is not debatable. Listen to Paul the Apostle, writing in the Bible. “But I want to remind you of the good news…how that Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures, that He was buried and that He was raised on the third day…by this good news you are saved.”
