In the show Continuum, the young Alec Sadler seems to have an amazing amount of technology available. Is there a canon/in-universe source listed for where he gets money for all those items? Even if Alec had obtained money to simply buy all the equipment, the power and bandwith requirements to maintain and operate it would seem to be very expensive.
His stepfamily and mom don't seem to be all that wealthy. In particular, his step-father and step-brother and their activities seem to be "at odds" with what they consider to be the "wealthy elite". This would imply they don't exactly have extra money lying around.
