A viral trend is sweeping the country as Canadians, struggling to afford the basic necessities in life, are breaking down on camera over the crippling cost of living crisis. Rent, food prices, mortgage payments, gas, and electricity costs are all continuing to spiral out of control and Canadians are being pushed to their breaking points.

The viral videos of Canadians in tears over the cost of living have been viewed millions of times on social media because the misery and despair that Canadians are feeling are shared by millions.

Despite this, politicians in Canada continue to remind Canadians that wage growth is outpacing inflation and that Canada’s economy is performing well. Prime Minister Trudeau even told Canadians in March that they were doing better than before. Economists and Real Estate experts have been sounding the alarm on unprecedented immigration as a driver of housing inflation in this country, but the government has no interest in heeding those warnings.
