Implementing a wealth tax is just plain common sense.
We are dealing with massive, global challenges, from the ongoing pandemic to the climate crisis, which disproportionately affect marginalized communities. Meanwhile, inequality is rising at an unabated rate, with wealth concentrating in the hands of a few. We cannot count solely on generosity to solve these problems. The causes of inequality are systemic and so the solutions must be systemic as well. Taxing the rich is simply the way to go. Sylvie is involved in philanthropy as a board member of the Trottier Family Foundation, and in various advocacy activities, particularly relating to the climate crisis, inequality, the pandemic, and social justice.
