Try to envision the anxiety that parents must feel when they can't afford shelter; when there's little hope of them doing that in the future; and when governments fail to make their situation any better. Now imagine a politician claiming to understand their pain. Who explains away their suffering using a bogeyman like trade deals or foreigners. And who gives them a sense of catharsis at knowing they have something to blame for their troubles. It seems unlikely now that Canada would ever see a person like Donald Trump running the country. But the seeds have already been planted to support a revolt that would bring a guy like him to power.
