Reaping what we’ve sown

Editor:

It’s not surprising that our country is staring into the face of a demographic problem. Canada’s average fertility rate currently sits at a measly 1.5 children per woman whereas 2.1 is what is needed for a stable population.

Our badly indebted nation and our already overly-strained tax system will soon be completely unable to handle our aging population. We are reaping what we have sown.
