Yes, but keep in mind that most people are not like you and live paycheck to paycheck. The ordinary Canadian family has 2 cars (leased/financed), a line of credit or two (carrying balance), several credit cards (some carrying balance), mortgage, etc. That's why most people are very vulnerable when it's hard to obtain credit.
