More Evidence Canada Cuts Down Its Tallest Poppies

With Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau in the news lately because she dared to ask for additional help during her travels its natural to wonder if this is yet another case of Canada selling out its iconoclasts to pander to its larger constituency, the self declared "common folk"? Or is it because she's rich, and many wonder why she should suck off the state when she can afford her own extra assistance if she needs it.
There has always been a love hate relationship between the governed who tend to run from average to lower income and the professional political class which tends to be upper or legacy class. Even our current prime minister is from a dynasty.
None of this does anything to alleviate the growing sense the world over that our so called democratic governments are in the hands of a special powerful elite. That a sort of soft communism or techno-socialism has slowly taken over the controls of all meaningful machines and everyday people are now players in the game with almost no real control of their own lives having voted those controls away without even knowing it. A global network of industries and trade masters forging professional languages to control the narrative in each market while excluding the rest as not being sophisticated enough to participate.
One thing is for sure, the main stream Canadian lives a pretty trivial life
if this is worth getting upset about. Our bureaucracy wastes literally billions of dollars on the most ridiculous projects and Sophie, a young mother in a very important role can't be separated from that. She's an easy target. Where as our debt problem ($620,649,921,545.98 as of April 17th, 2016), our lack of individual production, our long standing dependence on the social state; all this is just too hard to tackle so lets all pick on the spouse of the Prime Minister of Canada.
Maybe it's time mainstream Canadians grow up and start producing again so we can afford to give our iconiclasts what they need to protect and manage our national interests. If you are one of the 90% of Canadians who owe someone else money, while bragging about Canada being the 11th largest economy in the world...give your head a shake.
