From: Ed Lack
Subject: Infrastructure Funding Comments

My First question is Who Is ; Michael Sabia, Caisse De Depot ? What are his Political Views / Direction / Religion ?


Canada's Senate has watched its reputation fall to historic lows.

Expense scandals and ethics scandals have left many Canadians doubting whether the Senate should exist at all.

But now, with the Trudeau government attempting to ram the infrastructure bank through our Parliament with just two hours of review, the Senate has a chance to regain the trust of many Canadians.

How? By blocking the infrastructure bank.  A step in the right direction

The Senate has already taken a step in the right direction. It is being reported that some Senators are planning to take the infrastructure bank out of the omnibus budget bill (which Trudeau once promised to abolish), in order to make sure it can be studied separately, and for a longer time.

It's a great idea.

As of now, the House of Commons has already completed the two-hour long "study"� of the bill, meaning the Senate is the last line of defense for the infrastructure bank to be put through a real review
This is exactly what the Senate was meant to do. It's description as the place for "sober second thought,"� is about the necessity to slow down and review � and potentially block � dangerous legislation.

The infrastructure bank certainly meets that "dangerous"� description.

A globalist giveaway

The infrastructure bank is the ultimate "globalist giveaway."� It puts $35 billion in taxpayer money into an institution that will be dominated by foreign banks. Even worse, Canadian taxpayers will be on the hook for all losses, while the foreign banks will get the profits first. Canadians get all the risk, the foreign banks get all the reward.

The bank also infringes on provincial jurisdiction, concentrating even more power in Ottawa.

The Senate must act

The Liberals received 39.7 percent of the vote in the election. Many polls show more Canadians now oppose of Trudeau than support him. And as we can imagine, almost nobody wants to give more power to massive foreign banks.

This means Trudeau has no real mandate for pushing the infrastructure bank. Such a massive amount of money being taken from taxpayers should be decided in a referendum. The consequences for our country of putting ourselves even more at the mercy of the big banks could be severe and last for decades.

Because of that, it's absolutely absurd that such a massive change was given only 2 hours of study.

The speed at which Trudeau is trying to get it passed shows he has something there that he doesn't want Canadians to see.

That's exactly why it needs to be slowed down, and then stopped.

The Senate has the power to do exactly that, and they should.

Countering Trudeau

As I've written about Trudeau's ongoing contempt for Canadians and his unethical governing style, many have asked "what can be done to stop the damage.?"

Since he has a majority government, the opposition parties are limited in what they can do, since they have no true power in the House of Commons. The Senate however, has the power to stop Trudeau's dangerous policies. Since there are more "independent"� Senators than ever, they can act based on their own conscience's, instead of strict party domination.

Of course, many of those Senators are "independent"� in name only, and still identity with the Liberal Party. But Trudeau has no leverage over them like he does over Liberals in the House. There, he can refuse to sign their nomination papers and their chances of getting re-elected will plummet. In the Senate, they can do whatever they want.

They should use that opportunity to stand up to Trudeau and block the dangerous infrastructure bank. And you can use this opportunity to contact Senators from your province and encourage them to stand up for Canadians and do the right thing.

Despite how corrupt, rigged, and broken our political system is now, the Canadian people still have the power to influence the path of our country.

The elites want us to forget that power � they want us to just go along with whatever they say. But we don't have to listen to them. We can make up our own minds, speak our thoughts, and turn the tide of public opinion.

Contact your Senator and tell them to STOP Trudeau's dangerous infrastructure bank

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