When Justin Trudeau was first asked about his government’s decision to give MasterCard $50 million in corporate welfare earlier this week his immediate response was to invoke the middle class. “Over the past five years we have been focused on growing the middle class and supporting those working hard to join it. That is exactly what we have done,” Trudeau said. If you have a hard time figuring out how handing a company that made $16 billion last year is helping the middle class, then you’re not alone. Then again, we know the Trudeau government has a great deal of trouble defining the middle class.
