Opinion

Just Like Greece?

Elizabeth May and the Bank of Canada

By Betty Krawczyk, Cumberland

 

s more of us are becoming aware of the crucial role played by the international banking system in the Greek crisis, what about Canada? How much do our politicians know about international banking? More specifically, how much do they know about our own Bank of Canada?

Do they know the history of how Pierre Trudeau decided under the urging of the international bankers to change the rules that had allowed our government to borrow money from the Bank of Canada at little or no interest to one of compound interest from the private banks? That the compound interest of the private banks is what has caused our debt, both public and private? That most of our national debt piling up now is composed of interest being paid on the compound interest of private banks? Just like Greece? But that the rules that caused this in Canada can be reversed?

Well, letís ask the politicians. I know one who has worried about this bank robberyÖletís call it what it was and isÖmassive bank robberyÖfor a long time, and thatís Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party. She understands that Canada is going down the same road Greece is on unless we get our Bank of Canada back, working for the people instead of the international bankers.

Elizabeth May is a serious and brilliant politician and I donít blame her for maybe having a drink too many at the silly, frivolous gathering she was in at the time (Press Gallery dinner May 9, 2015). It was probably easy to do, considering. I go with the American female politician (I canít remember her name) who said she reserved the right to occasionally act as inappropriately as any male politician when under stress.

Nobodyís perfect, but in my opinion Elizabeth May is the most perfect politician Canada has. The vast majority of our politicians, along with the majority of our media, are mostly too dense or too cowardly to even think about how the international banks are screwing with the people of Canada, much less report on it.

I donít think any Liberals running for office will want to discuss the Bank of Canada with us because it was Justin Trudeauís father who threw us to the international banking wolves in the first place. The NDP? They are doing some good things but I donít think they will risk any votes over this vital issue. The Conservatives? Stephen Harper? Heís too busy waiting for the Rapture. He certainly expects his vengeful god to reward him for fleecing Canadians out of their environmental safeguards along with their civil rights.

Well, then letís ask Elizabeth May. Especially as there is a lawsuit before the courts now asking that the government overturn the banking rules that have stopped the government from reverting back to borrowing from the Bank of Canada. Next time.
