Mean streets found in British Columbia

The Economist writes about Canada and the persistence of poverty amid plenty :

One of the keenest slashers was British Columbia, which despite being one of the richest provinces has one of the highest rates of child poverty (10.4%) after taxes on family income. Critics of such policies say that children who grow up in poverty forfeit the chance to prosper as adults, or to become productive workers.

The Economist is an influential world affairs publication that supports globalization but approves of health and education spending by government as necessary for civil society.
