Empathy and money are not mutually exclusive:

Who’s to say that when it comes to how people’s complicated lives unfurl, Justin Trudeau’s empathy reservoir is any less full than Tom Mulcair’s?

Too bad there isn’t an objective measure of empathy, like the BMI (body mass index), where you can type in a few key experiences, statements and actions and voila, it tells you that when it comes to empathy, you’re either Mother Teresa or Darth Vader. Or like most of us, somewhere in between.
