Is Canada on its knees to the IMF?
he IMF? Bank of Canada? Our major politicians obviously have never heard of them. At least it didnít come up in the debates.
No, the major thing that came out of the first national leaderís debate was that Tom Mulcair got Harper to admit that a recession actually existed. Or, kind of, as Harper seemed to take it back later.
COMER (Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform) has turned to the courts for help in trying to overturn Pierre Trudeauís decision in 1974 to turn over our Bank of Canada to the private banks. The first judge to hear COMERíS case characterized the claims as follows and were reiterated by Mr. Justice Russell in April, 2014 in federal court:
The first judge struck down COMERíS claims, but Mr. Justice Russell saw it differently on appeal and ordered: (para 76 same hearing)
ďSo, as regards the declaratory relief sought in this Claim, it is my view that the matters raised could be justifiable and appropriate for consideration by the CourtÖThere is a difference between the Court declaring that the Government or the Governor, or the Minister, should pursue a particular policy and a declaration as to whether the policies they have pursued are compliant with the Bank of Canada and the Constitution. The facts are pleaded on these issues. Subject to what I have to say about other aspects of the Claim, the Plaintiffs should be allowed to go forward, call their evidence and attempt to make their case.Ē
