Most people will quote a reputable? news source to make a point.
But cliffy will copies and pastes stupid memes that some other fool posted on facebook
If at least he made his own instead of quoting the internet version of the national enquirer.

Banks make money by leveraging money you lend them through deposits, which become their "reserves." When you deposit your money, it becomes their money. Then through fractional reserve banking sorcery, they conjure many times the value of those reserves into loans. It's the biggest regulated ponzi scheme in history.


Credit unions are no better.

Say good bye to another Canadian industry leader with the confirmation of the sale of Bombardier Transportation to Alstrom of France. Bottom line is Canada loses another globally recognized business. Of course the politician's pay cheque is the same no matter what. I wonder if he / she is in the office today.

Do taxpayers get all our money back from bailing them out every other year?

It's a lot of intellectual property leaving the country. Just saying.

Government failed as regulators of industry when Bombardier was forced to deal with predatory pricing. Check the price of an A220 today and you'll see it is $20 million more per plane than a year ago. And it is a good plane.

The Canadian aviation industry has a new scoundrel for a partner. We'll soon see how they invest in our country and lives.

Yep, ole Bombardier is now only a penny stock.

All the billions that the Fed Libs poured into their buddies business is long gone.

... So much for the thriving mfg sector in Eastern Canukistan

Good thing oil is dead. Now they won't have to venture into big bad Alberta to earn a living. They can stay at home with their welfare cheque just being a little smaller than it was.

Interesting rebrand for CMHC now to be known as Housing Canada. Gives them another three years of nobody knowing who they are or what they do. Go Canada!

Nooooooo "housing" is an ambiguity. This sounds more Feds are going to buy land and build housing.

"Projects".

There will be no work done for the amount of money they are presently talking. All of it will be eaten up in studies, stakeholder meetings, open houses, and graft.

What exactly has JT done that has "improved" life for Canadians as a whole, either b4 covid or since covid? Oh ya, our covid numbers aren't as high as the U.S. but of course there aren't 360+ million of us either.

We should be grateful that we live in either country foibles and all.
