Almost 1/3rd of our nation’s wealth combined – which is approximately 11 million people – makes up for less worth than just the two richest Canadian billionaires.


Those two Canadians are:

  • David Thomson, who is a chairman for Thomson Reuters, and
  • Galen Weston Sr., who is the president of Loblaws Companies Ltd.

This news is coming from a new report released from a group of international aid organizations via Oxfam Canada.

As if that wasn’t crazy enough, get this: The world’s eight richest human beings make up for 50 percent of the world’s wealth. Yes, you read that right! Just eight people, the size of a single large family, make up for over half the wealth on earth!
