I think I heard the other day that a "starter" home in Toronto is around 550K.

People who bought homes 20 years ago have quadrupled their investments in some cases. So older generation is doing quite well financially.

There is huge financial pressure on people nowadays. Most people carry enormous debt-load.

When people are working 2 jobs just to keep the roof over their heads there isn't much room for social activities or quality family time.

Day care employees spend more time with children than their parents in many cases or children are "latch-key" kids. People are doing the best they can do but at what cost?

It's a rat-race of enormous proportions.
