OTTAWA - Canada is rapidly catching up to the United States as a country divided between haves and have-nots, according to a study issued Tuesday by the Conference Board. The Conference Board says income inequality has been rising more in Canada than in the United States since the mid-1990s, and faster than in many peer countries. In fact, the think-tank says Canada had the fourth-largest increase in income disparity among a sample group of 17 advanced economies in the period between the mid-1990s and the late 2000s.

In some senses Canada and the US share some startling similarities, the next riots won't be based on race, it will be based on income, and Canada is catching up to the US very quickly as of late.
