Canada must regain control of the issuance of its currency if it wishes to be a Sovereign Democratic nation.
“Once a nation parts with the control of its currency and credit, it matters not who makes the nation’s laws. Usury once in control, will wreck any nation.
Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most sacred responsibility, all talk of Sovereignty of parliament and of democracy is futile.”
William Lyon MacKenzie King
Truly those who control the money control everything. Today’s private bankers are the ones running this country because they are in control of our monetary system.
Short History of The Bank of Canada
The Bankers in the USA formed their privately owned federal reserve in 1912 and by 1929 put North America into a depression. Our Government in Canada recognized this and created the Bank of Canada to take back control of our own currency. They opened the bank in 1938 as a result of the Bank of Canada Act of 1935 and funded Canada virtually debt free with little or no inflation until 1974.
Then in 1974 the governor of the Bank of Canada – Gerald Bouey – under international pressure agreed to a deal with the IMFs’ newly created Bank of International Settlements (Basel 1 and eventually 11 and 111) and stopped issuing money to the Federal Government, instead borrowing from international banks and investors at a high compounding interest rate. Within a decade our national debt spiraled from $20 billion to $588 billion.
Today Canada’s federal debt according to statistics Canada is around $1.1 trillion with compound interest of $60 billion reappearing every year.
