Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland has inadvertently conceded that middle class Canadians are worse off now after nine years of her and Justin Trudeau’s power in government, defending the capital gains tax increase by saying the wealthy have to live in gated communities and fly on private jets to stay away from the angry ordinary folks. True North’s Andrew Lawton weighs in.

Also, it’s not just the super rich who are being targeted – Canadian doctors are raising alarm bells about what the capital gains tax increase means for them given so many doctors use their professional corporations to save for retirement. Canadian Medical Association president Dr. Kathleen Ross joins the show to discuss.

Plus, it’s Monday, so Kris Sims from the Canadian Taxpayers Federation is back to talk about the federal government trying to gag oil and gas companies.
