Forum Post: 1% Panic With A French Twist

It looks like Canadians are slowly starting to realize that something Awful is about to happen.The fact that there was a bailout of Canadian banks in 2008 is almost completely unknown in Canada and everywhere else;there was a total news blackout on the subject.Apparently a few people got the information over the transom,because economist Michel Choussedovsky asserted in a recent lecture on the financial crisis that Canadian banks had indeed been bailed out,and that the amount of the bailout was 70 billion Canadian dollars.He pointed out at that time that 70 billion is the exact same amount that is sent back to the Provinces for all of their social welfare programs except the health care program,which has been under separate attack from politicians owned by the 1%.It certainly looks like Canadians will soon be required to do without this money,because it has been given to the 1% to help them out with their unpaid gambling debts.The response to this uncertainty in Quebec has been quick-the Quebequois have elected an avowed Separatist as their premier.As the new Premier was addressing supporters at a victory rally in Montreal,a "lone gunman" opened up with an AK-47 in a vestibule outside the hall.Other members of the Parti Quebequois were sent threatening text messages.Literally one of the last things on earth the 1% would be willing to tolerate is a free,independant Quebec.Wise management of the staggering wealth of natural resources in Quebec would provide a comfortable life for all residents of Quebec,instead of simply being wastefully and greedily exploited for the benefit of a few wealthy families and transnational corporations as it is now.This situation is developing...

The ruling elite are pulling Canada into the global crisis and want to hold their proverbial boot on the necks of its citizens just like 'they' have done in the US. Canada is in a move to loosen the laws on the use of drones. Toronto also received a billion dollars to ramp up its police riot response equipment to more of a military standard.

I get a sense that 'they' want military on the streets like they have in parts of the US, and I would bet a good sum of money, if I had it, that we will see several false flag attacks and violent shootings (and endless reporting on it) so they can justify the military presence...and the 'scared public' will gladly help them usher it in. Lends new meaning to being "held down by consent".

"They" get a two-fer with this latest shooting. An extremist 'lone gunman', (new push to disarm even more citizens), and the resurrection of the very contentious debate of a Sovereign Quebec against the Nationalists (civil unrest and dividing the people). The globalists will breed hatred and contempt between several groups as they have done in the US.

So sad that the masses don't stop and think about how easily they are being led...and how the government really works.

The situation in Canada is really scary right now.There is no way of knowing what the 1% will do to Canadians next.For sure it will be diabolically devious and savagely brutal because of the trillions of dollars at stake.There was one person killed in the shooting and one badly injured-both working class dudes who never did harm to anybody.My heart goes out to their loved ones.

Can you identify these 1%ers? They need to be exposed for their crimes, and incarcerated.

No point dicking around with criminals of this calibre. Round them up, and gaol them.

The Centre for Research on Globalization is a Canadian group headed up by economist Michel Choussedovsky,who is a professor of economics at the University of Ottawa.As far as I know,the most accurate information about the activities of the 1% is coming from there.I believe this group most likely consists of Mr.Choussedovsky,along with an IT assistant,a secretary,and a few Grad students.They have a big job monitoring all of the stuff that goes on in Canada.To name a few of the transnational corporations rampaging in the Great White North-Weyerhauser,Exxon/Mobil,Monsanto,Archer Daniels Miidland,Koch Industries/Georgia Pacific,International Paper,Mead/Westvaco,Rio Tinto,Alcoa,Gulf Western-the list goes on.You see many of these same Vampires sucking the life out of Austrailia and New Zealand.

Yes, you do.

It's all the usual suspects, really. Now the question is, what kind of a case would stick.

Government Regulatory Agencies (in all of the above listed countries)-captured by corporate interests-Legislative bodies-captured-News Media-captured-Law Enforcement-captured-Military-captured-And so on.Protest movements are what is left for any person who has a conscience.Worrying about the relative effectiveness of such protests isn't the point.Speaking out against criminal activities is the point.My own feeling is that protest movements can have little effect on criminal activity that is so completely protected by captured elements of our governments.I intend to protest anyway.

Yes, I'm in the most populated area of Canada, which is disconcerting...and I anguish in advance for the unsuspecting people who, in all likelihood, will get hurt.

Well,I know how it feels because after decades of being totally ignored by the corporatists,all of a sudden..."They're Here" because we,the people of Upstate New York are sitting on top of something they want.I know the devastation they are doing right now in Canada by destroying people's wells.We are cash poor/land rich like many Canadians and if they wreck our wells we are Fucked.

It's terribly sad,because the people here ask me-"Is there no way to stop them," and when I tell them No,they will do it one way or the other-they are so sad! There is some kind of hope we can force them to give us 1 million dollars for destroyed wells,though,because they haven't started yet.So we will probably try to put a protest movement out there that can extract a binding agreement that will force them to do that.

Some analysis. I'm ashamed to say our most perceptive analyst neglected to mention the most important factor in the Canadian situation: the hockey season is about to be canceled.

[-] 1 points by trashyharry (3152) from Waterville, NY 2 years ago

There is no way such a thing could happen.

I am the author of this post.In order to check the veracity of the post,please search the following:Michel Choussedovsky,Parti Quebequois,assasination attempt in Quebec &c. I'm afraid that is the best I can do due to the fact that I am not computer literate.Sorry.

Hey, I live Stateside, and was all ready to come up to Montreal for a little vacation. With all this commotion, is it still safe?

[-] 1 points by trashyharry (3152) from Waterville, NY 2 years ago

Canada is quite a bit safer than the States.Montreal is a great place to go for a vacation,especially in the beginning of Autumn.If you have friends who live in Montreal,stick close to them.Even though there is no shortage of tough neighborhoods in any Canadian city,you will most likely be treated very hospitably.As in any other place,interacting with people who are intoxicated may lead to trouble.The Anarchists of Quebec are one of the best crews around-I have visited with them in Canada many times & had a great time.
