At the time of year when the focus is on giving, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives researchers have found that BC’s 10 wealthiest billionaires can afford to give thousands of times more than the rest of us.

The combined net worth of BC’s 10 wealthiest families is $25 billion — the same amount as the bottom 1.32 million British Columbians combined. The typical top-10 BC billionaire...
