During WW II, our elected members of parliament asked the governor of the Bank of Canada (like the US Federal Reserve only fully owned by the government) about the debt. In 1942 he said that the federal liability, or debt if you will, was a private sector asset. Then the finance minister mused in parliament about how to make it an asset for the people. A lot of Canadians do not get this yet but I have noted that every time we borrow to build a high school, highway, airport, hospital, university, etc. we create an asset for the future.

not really. highways & airports have been already been privatized. let's hope that hospitals won't be but bc of the incredible debt building up & the fact that our national debt is subject to credit ratings it wouldn't surprise me.

@ToolGuy ," A lot of Canadians do not get this yet but I have noted that every time we borrow to build a high school, highway, airport, hospital, university, etc. we create an asset for the future."

most of those assets end up being owned by the parasitic private sector.
2 big cases in point: the 401 & the toronto airport.

@ToolGuy , OK, you win.

Those who do realize that the only countries on Earth who are not part of central banking cartel are (or were until recently) Iraq, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea and Libya. See a pattern?
As Rothschild was reported to say 'Give me control over a country's money supply and I care not who sits on the throne.'
Yes, we pay our Big 5 Banks to bring fiat currency into being and we are not required to by law but our government does it anyway.

@ToolGuy Looks like we are in for a financial reset on a world scale by the time we are out the other side of this pandemic, Bretton Woods was a long time ago, guess we are overdue, everybody is so deeply in debt that we can never pay it all back.

@ToolGuy and so here we are today, endgame.

Taxes are the price we pay to live in a civilized society

@ToolGuy and where would the money for armed forces, embassies, national environmental programs etc come from?

but the government also borrows lots of money from the private sector as well as the big banks and pays hefty interest on it ,Why not just borrow from bank of canada at zero interest and come up with a plan to eventually pay it down

Posted by bookofmoronsheard that nonsense from the local and Ottawa tantrum convoy at least a dozen times. If you're gonna "overthrow the government", you should at least know which country you're in.

Posted by SnowyOwlSoon the occupiers who feel privileged will realize that privileges are not rights and hopefully leave and go home.

Posted by SnowyOwlIt's easy to believe that you are in the majority when you live in an echo chamber.
