BRIBERY?: Bankers Lobbying Way Up Under Trudeau

Yet more evidence that Justin Trudeau serves only the elites

With Justin Trudeau in power, Canada’s banks seem to have a newfound confidence that the federal government is willing to do their bidding.

That explains the recent report that lobbying by Canada’s big banks has increased by 60% under since Justin Trudeau took office.

According to the report, there have been 410 instances of lobbying by the big banks in the past 18 months, compared to 256 under the Harper government in the 18 months before that.

Banks lobbying their own watchdogs

These lobbying numbers are deeply concerning, because they show the Trudeau government has learned nothing from the 2008 Financial Crisis. The revolving door between Wall Street and Washington, where bank lobbyists became government officials and vice-versa, corrupted the financial and political system to such an extent that a crisis was inevitable.

Now, it seems Canada is heading in the same direction under Justin Trudeau.

And in case there was any doubt, guess who was the MP most lobbied by the big banks?

Francis Sobara.

Surely it’s just a coincidence that Sobara – a Liberal MP – previously worked in the banking industry.

Corruption

This is how government gets corrupted. This is the kind of legalized bribery that co-opts our government. It’s not always through illegal actions, but through the cumulative effect of the powerful banking industry using their army of lobbyists to relentlessly push their agenda.

Consider the fact that employees from all of Canada’s big banks have admitted that brutally unethical practices are endemic in Canada’s banks, yet no bank executive has been punished, and nobody in power has paid the price.

Just like the financial crisis, no matter what the banks do, no matter how much money they lose or how many people they ruin – the bankers never get punished.

That’s the result of massive amounts of lobbying. That’s how “legal” corruption spreads and our system gets turned further and further away from serving the Canadian people.

Give the public access

Considering the track record of the Trudeau government, we can only imagine what’s happening behind the scenes at these lobbying meetings.

However, if the government wanted to prove they aren’t corrupt, there’s a very easy way to do so:

Put cameras and microphones in all lobbying meetings.

We must remember that the politicians are supposed to work for us. They are public servants, and we are the public. So we should have every right to see and hear what’s being discussed.

If the politicians won’t agree to that, we can only assume they have something to hide.

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