Letter to the editor: A call to move away from constitutional monarchy and the crown

To the Expositor:

Once again we are given a thoughtful editorial about the long overdue amendment of Canada’s citizenship oath to recognize the rights and contribution of our Indigenous Peoples (‘Include recognition of Treaty Relationships in our citizenship oath,’ November 4, Page 4).

However, I continue to find it odd, that despite having repatriated our constitution from our British colonial masters, our new citizens, let alone our prime minister, still must first give obeisance and allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, “Queen of Canada,” rather than our Canadian nation and its citizens.

Barbados is dropping the Queen as their head of state, as are other members of the British Commonwealth. What do you think about a monarchy free Canada? Personally, I find it embarrassing that a foreign monarch is our head of state. I’m all for preserving tradition, but I think Canada would be taken more seriously if we dropped the “Queen of Canada” business. It is also time to once again embrace the original agenda of our Bank of Canada to provide interest free loans for Canadian infrastructure, rather than continue to be gouged for high interest loans, most especially from the Swiss Bank of International Settlements, a financial chameleon largely controlled by the Rothschild international banking family. My feeling is that the perpetuation of the monarchy in the Canadian government is related to the sell out to British and international banking interests.

“Few people understand the Canadian government’s relationship with the Bank of Canada, or the nature of the bank’s original ‘raison d’etre’, which was disbanded in 1974. Back in 2011, a lawsuit was filed in the federal court by the Committee on Monetary and Economic Reform against the Government of Canada and the Bank of Canada. The lawsuit attempted to: ‘Restore the use of the Bank of Canada to its original purpose, by exercising its public statutory duty and responsibility.’ That purpose includes making interest-free loans to the municipal/provincial/federal governments for human capital expenditures (education, health, other social services) and/or infrastructure expenditures.

An immensely powerful international organization, that most people have never even heard of, secretly controls the money supply of the entire globe. It is called the Bank for International Settlements, and it is the central bank of central banks. It is located in Basel, Switzerland, but also has branches in Hong Kong and Mexico City. It is essentially an unelected, unaccountable central bank of the world, that has complete immunity from taxation and from national laws.  Even Wikipedia admits that, “it is not accountable to any single national government.” The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) was used to launder money for the Nazis during World War II, but these days the main purpose of the BIS is to guide and direct the centrally-planned global financial system.

Today, 58 global central banks belong to the BIS, and it has far more power over how the US economy (or any other economy, for that matter), will perform over the course of the next year, than any politician does. Every two months, the central bankers of the world gather in Basel for another global economy meeting. During those meetings, decisions are made which affect every man, woman and child on the planet, and yet none of us have any say in what goes on. The BIS is an organization that was founded by the global elite, and it operates for the benefit of the global elite, and it is intended to be one of the key cornerstones of the emerging one world economic system.
