Poverty could trigger revolt in Canada – secret report


Canada’s economic prospects are “beyond bleak” and may cause civil unrest in the next five years, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) has said in a confidential report to the government in Ottawa.

Titled “Whole-of-Government Five-Year Trends for Canada,” the report was obtained through a legal request by Thompson Rivers University legal scholar Matt Malone. A “heavily redacted” version was published by the National Post on Wednesday – though even that was quickly taken down from the document-sharing website Scribd.

“Economic forecasts for the next five years and beyond are bleak,” with Canada’s current situation expected to “probably deteriorate further,” said the RCMP report.

To corroborate the RCMP findings, Hopper pointed to a Royal Bank of Canada analysis from December, which described housing affordability as the “worst ever.” Only the richest 25% of Canadians can even hope to buy a single-family home, while condominiums were entirely out of reach for 55.5% of the households.

Despite the dire economic conditions, the RCMP mainly blamed “misinformation,” “conspiracy theories” and “paranoia” for the fact that Canadians have become disillusioned with their government.
