Canada: Home to Banksters and Fraudsters
Well, Canada’s Finance Minister, Jim Flaherty, announced today that he will not be joining the EU’s efforts to curtail GREED by taxing those in the banking sector who continue to receive bonuses that most people consider obscene.
Britain, France, Germany back new taxes on bank bonuses
In addition, Robert Nicholson, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, continues to talk tough on crime (the blue collar type) but does little to nothing on white collar crime. He wants to label our kids ‘criminals’, and throw the book at them and send them to penitentiaries with long prison terms, while going easy on his white collar ‘friends’, by sending them instead to ‘country club’ prisons, with slap on the wrist sentences. In other words, he and his conservative cohorts are strong proponents for a two-tiered justice system in Canada. One that provides ‘justice for the rich, and the law for the poor’. I say to hell with that!! If you are going to hang the little crooks, we want to see the big crooks hang to!
Our country is being transformed by Harper’s conservatives, into those who have and those who don’t. With the don’ts out numbering the haves, but with the haves keeping everyone in line by utilizing their Taser toting goons, who lately seem to be dishing out state sponsored torture and terrorism on our populace, on an ever more frequent basis.
The message from the government is clear. Canada will remain a safe haven for banksters and fraudsters, who can continue ripping our citizens off with impunity… and with our conservative government’s blessings.
Corruption is merely a nasty word for the autumn of a people.
