Pretty cool the first man up the Niagara Falls!
Daredevil adventurer Will Gadd has become the first person to climb a wall of spray ice at the edge of Niagara's Horseshoe Falls.

"The power of the falls is staggering," Gadd told National Geographic. "It vibrates your intestines and makes you feel very, very small. I've never experienced anything like it."

Watch the climb and read his story here: http://cbc.sh/ybr3BQl

Polarization is one of the biggest risks to social harmony, the environment and advancement of our country.  
Canada's super-rich increase their share of country's wealth: http://cbc.sh/4ggBYZe

While politicians in Ottawa still can't decide who is in the middle class, a new analysis suggests wealth is increasingly gravitating to the very top.

The report by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives shows that the country's 86 richest individuals and families — or 0.0002 per cent of the total population — are getting exponentially richer and now have accumulated as much wealth as the country's poorest 11.4 million.

Share your thoughts about the report's findings below.

Canada must step up it's efforts to protect the most vulnerable among us.  Very disappointed that the Conservative government sees no need/value to address this very real social issue...but can pay for questionable advertising campaigns touting the merits of resource extraction.  Just another reason why they need to go.
