Meghan Bell wants Canada to tax the rich. Of course, that belief would be a lot easier to explain at the dinner table if her own family wasn’t massively wealthy. Bell joins to talk about her recent piece in The Walrus that pulls back the curtain on what it’s like to grow up rich and why Canada needs an aggressive wealth tax.
