There is an extremely wealthy man in Canada – a man whose massive wealth has come from inheritance and from ownership rather than from actually working – whose insatiable greed and callous and oftentimes lethal ruthlessnessaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaGalen Weston typifies the corruption and the lawless impunity with which the Ownership Class or Top1% has been allowed to routinely function for far too long.
That man, who is the second wealthiest Canadian and the 147th wealthiest mega-billionaire in the world, is one of just five immorally and illicitly wealthy Canadians – and all from just two families – whose combined net worth is equal to that of 30% of all Canadians. And that man –aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaInherited Wealth whose mostly inherited wealth is equal to the combined wealth of almost 2.2 million average Canadians – had the audacity today to whine that next year’s proposed minimum-wage increasesaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaLoblaws – in the provinces of Ontario and Alberta – would cost his massively wealthy national supermarket chain – Loblaw’s – $190 million over the course of 2018.
That insatiably greedyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaInsatiable Greed and lethally ruthless mega-billionaire is Galen Weston and he had absolutely NOTHING to whine about; in fact, he should be seeking ways to give back far, far more than he is continuing to receive. Consider, if you will, just how brutal that manaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaMinimum Wage Increases has been in maximizing even further a private wealth that could not possibly be spent even over the course of several generations of descendants: Continue reading “A Canadian mega-billionaire who should be in jail for massive crimes against humanity”

Today’s hike in Cdn. interest rates is simply a savage attack on the working class & another insane transfer of wealth to the Top1% from the hard-pressed Other99%. It must stop! Now!

As he hinted last week, the Bank of Canada’s disastrous governor, Stephen Poloz, today increased the key interest aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaPolozrate BY HALF – from 0.50% to 0.75% – in a cynical move that serves no other purpose than to redistribute even more income from rank-and-file front-line workers who create ALL WEALTH to the parasitical and predatory aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaInterest RatesOwnership Class that has already stolen so much from ordinary Canadians.
And if Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is at all sincere in his progressive rhetoric,aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaSmirking Trudeau he would immediately fire Poloz and/or begin the process of abolishing the central bank and returning control of interest rates and the money supply to the elected representativesaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaMoney Supply of the people.
But that is not likely to happen because Justin Trudeau, just like Stephen Poloz, is both a part of and a representative not of ordinary Canadians but of the psychopathic Top1% whose unrestrained and unethical corporate-capitalist excesses aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaDeep Recessionare now close to plunging the nation into a very severe recession.
If questioned about this unjustifiable increase in interest rates and the devastating effect it could have on so many hard-working families, Trudeau will no doubt flash his “charismatic” smile – OR SMIRK – and begin spewing a torrent of pretty words about his government’s alleged commitment to the interests of ordinary Canadians.

The shrill, sordid response of the federal Conservatives to Omar Khadr’s expected cash compensation shows Canada’s bastion of right-wing lunacy is still mired in the muck of racism & bigotry

Canada’s federal Conservative Party is now going ape-shit over speculation that LiberalaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaGo Ape Shit Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is about to apologize to heinously abused and illegally prosecuted child soldier Omar Khadr and confirm that the government will compensate KhadraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaOmar Khadr child for the violation of his constitutional rights – to the tune of possibly $10 million or more.
Having such useless Conservative tools as Ontario MP Erin O’Toole demand that any such payment be awarded not to Khadr but to the families of his alleged American victims reveals that this fear-mongering, hate-mongering,aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaErin O'Toole war-mongering party has not changed its vicious stripes – even with the election of a new leader almost as pretty but nowhere near as intelligent and open-minded as now politically-departed aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaScheerinterim leader Rona Ambrose.
On top of displaying their abysmal ignorance on national TV and appealing to the xenophobic instincts of their lunatic white-supremacist base, Continue reading “The shrill, sordid response of the federal Conservatives to Omar Khadr’s expected cash compensation shows Canada’s bastion of right-wing lunacy is still mired in the muck of racism & bigotry”

Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz should be fired for even hinting at a possible jump in interest rates next week. It’s just a sleazy cash grab by the Top1% he works for & represents, & a reprehensible dereliction of his duty!

When woefully compromised Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz hinted today that the country’s central bank aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaStephen Polozwould likely start jacking up interest rates next week, his sloppy announcement revealed not only that he is totally out of touch with the financial reality the masses are struggling against but also that his sole interest as controller of Canada’s monetary policy is in protecting the vested interests of the Top1%, of which he is a part –aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaBank of Canada in gross violation of his mandate and the mandate of the Bank of Canada.
Poloz justified next week’s likely hike in interest rates with the assertion that his failure to do so at this time might risk causing a spike in inflation at some undetermined future time.aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaHigh interest rates His assertion was specious and fails even on its face not only as a justification for the threatened rate hike but also as a possible rationalization for his obvious abdication from the DUAL mandate of the Bank of Canada.aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaHigh unemployment
The Bank of Canada, as Canada’s central bank, is a quasi-public, quasi-private entity that serves no other real purpose than to turn over to the 5 big private-sector Canadian banks near total control of monetary policy, including the setting of key interest rates and controlling the money supply.aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaMoney Supply It’s simply yet another sop to the Ownership Class or Top1% Continue reading “Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz should be fired for even hinting at a possible jump in interest rates next week.

What do Justin Trudeau & Donald Trump have in common? The tendency to make lavish but hollow campaign promises, cynically break those promises & then dance around the issue when it’s raised

It’s almost impossible to think of a time when the two countries sharing the world’s largest border – Canada and the U.S.aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaJustin Trudeau – have simultaneously been led by such shallow & shameless leaders whose actions – or near-total lack thereof – have belied the pretty words of their aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaDonald Trumpcampaign rhetoric & exposed a total disdain and contempt for the working classes they claim instead to champion.
While the “boyish charm” of Liberal Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his silver-tongued proseaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaSilver-tongued prose have led him to a chummier relationship with the mainstream media than his U.S. counterpart and allowed him to deflect public attention from his own government’s failures aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaActs of Omissionand heinous acts of omission, President Donald Trump’s short attention span, his obvious disdain for honesty, his inability to keep track of hisaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaLiars past lies, and his efforts to now browbeat and bully the mainstream mediaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaBullies whose campaign largesse toward him played a large part in bringing this buffoon to power are now causing The Donald massive grief, behind their own distinct facades these two emissaries of the Top1% – of which they are both very much a part – lurks the inescapable truth that these two devious pretenders are much more alike than they are different: Continue reading “What do Justin Trudeau & Donald Trump have in common?
