SECOND THOUGHTS: Senators Trying To Slow The Dangerous Infrastructure Bank

It’s rare that the Canadian Senate gets praise, but some Senators deserve some credit for their recent moves to slow down the dangerous infrastructure bank being proposed by Justin Trudeau.

Trudeau has tried to put the infrastructure bank into the omnibus budget, and ram it through without almost any debate or discussion.

The government obviously wants to avoid any real scrutiny or discussion of the bank as it amounts to a $35 slush fund for the largest global financial institutions and corporations, putting all the risk of expensive infrastructure on the backs of Canadian taxpayers, while giving the global elites all the rewards.

The more people have heard about the bank, the more have turned against it, and it seems that even some in the Senate are waking up to the threat.

As a result, Senator Andre Pratte – an independent Senator from Quebec – is proposing legislation to take the infrastructure bank out of the Liberal budget bill, meaning it will be split off as its own entity and will be discussed in further detail. He believes he has the votes to do it.

Pratte has clear concerns about how risky the bank could be to taxpayers, telling CBC, “The government fails to give clear answers to what the risk level will be,” adding “That absolutely needs to be clarified before we give the green light.”

Sober second thought

If the Senate actually goes ahead and slows down the infrastructure bank, they’ll be taking a step in the right direction. Of course, the bank should be cancelled entirely, as it is a dangerous and corrupt proposal that will make our country even more beholden to international finance than we already are.

By at least giving more time for Canadians to see the dangerous truth about the bank, opposition can continue to grow. That opposition matters. I have previously written about the bank and encourage readers to contact politicians and urge them to stop it. Those articles got tens of thousands of views, and I believe we have made a difference in awakening more Canadians about the serious danger of Trudeau’s plans.

We have to keep it up, and continue our efforts to expose the truth to as many of our fellow Canadians as possible.

That’s how we can turn the tide – even in the face of the endless elitist propaganda.

The elites want to hide their many failures behind political correctness, deception, and manipulation. We need to push back and spread the truth.

That’s why I write.
