Housing prices keep soaring. Inflation is hot again. Even the upper middle class is struggling to keep up. Today, life in Canada is becoming harder than living elsewhere.

Martin Pelletier, portfolio manager at Wellington-Altus Private Counsel, joins Anthony to discuss what we all need to know about the biggest risks to Canadians’ financial security, how we can prepare for them, and how we might even prevent some of them.
