The Big Banks


www.policyalternatives.ca

Throughout the 2008-2010 financial crisis, Canadian banks were touted by the federal government and the banks themselves as being much more stable than other countries’ big banks.

it seems that not only our thieving banks but their lackeys in office lied to all of us .but here is 1 very interesting fact about our great Canadian banking system.
the day that they announced that we were in a recession at 2;30 in the afternoon ,they had already jacked up the interest rate on our credit cards at 9;oo in the morning .but only on those that were paying 12% or higher interest rate.the hardest hit got a shock of 3 to 5% rate hike ,which does not sound like much but that is about a flat rate of 60% more in interest per year ,but your bill did not go up much did it.
where there is a will ,there is a way to beat them down to their thieving knees ,and take back that which is our own -CASH IS KING, oh thats right they are trying to OUTLAW CASH world wide ,i wonder why ,i`ll give you 3 guesses and it is not to help the people or the nations .
