Investigation: Reforming Canada Under Covid

This post will seek to provide evidence for the possibility of the actions detailed in a whistleblower leak. However, this does not seek to prove the leak itself and can only be used to highlight the plausibility of the claims that are made in it. Here is the transcript of the email (Site is unaffilated with RR):

Lock down Restrictions On Provincial Level

“Phase in secondary lockdown restrictions on a rolling basis, starting with major metropolitan areas first and expanding outward. Expected by November 2020.”

A second wave of lockdown has already occurred in Europe and other locations across the world are talking about the possibility of locking down again if the case numbers go up. 

Canada already has regional restrictions for moving within the country. These are province based. Each province has its own rules, and these are changing at the local governments level.

This is already occurring and it is quite easy to imagine an increase. Nothing is stopping lockdowns starting in the city (where most cases are) and then moving outwards.

Government Powers

“I am providing is originating from the Strategic Planning committee (which is steered by the PMO).”

Many of the later claims require proof that the Canadian government has the ability to do many of the actions detailed. Due to the current situation being a pandemic, it will use a large number of laws created to stop diseases/virus. There is a large amount of existing power that can be used in normal times. However, the Canadian government also has extensive powers that are enshrined in the Quarantine Act (S.C. 2005, c. 20). This is beyond dealing with the medical but the overall situation. It will be cited extensively through this article. This is already passed and is currently being used.

Powers To Establish Facilities

“Rush the acquisition of (or construction of) isolation facilities across every province and territory. Expected by December 2020.”

The powers to establish quarantine stations are given to the minister. However, they can also empower officers for health work. The bill does not say that they need training and can be done at the whim of the minister. Due to this being a minister, the Prime Ministers Office could also control and do this. There is not a restriction on who can be this meaning Deference Force individuals could be made to do this. It is important to note this is more than nurses and can be included guards and logistical supplies. The line about health individuals doing it should be viewed in terms of a “and” they can be used and others.

Purpose Of The Bill Can Be Used For This:

The purpose stated in the bill allows for the crisis to be managed. Economic pain could easily justify continuing actions. While many of the charges detailed above had maximum sentences there is nothing stopping an individual being charged under normal laws with the justification from these laws. Eg If you are escaping a facility then you will be charged with these special laws, disobeying police directions etc.

I could not find any information about this Committee potentially digging through the government records could lead to more information being found.

Purpose

4 The purpose of this Act is to protect public health by taking comprehensive measures to prevent the introduction and spread of communicable diseases.

Possibility Of Economic Acts

Canadian government Seizure of Items

“Once in those facilities they would be given two options, participate in the debt forgiveness program and be released, or stay indefinitely in the isolation facility under the classification of a serious public health risk and have all their assets seized.”

The Canadian government already has the ability to seize most items a individual owns if they do not have taxes:

Source: “The CRA can get a writ or memorial and seize your assets and property. As an individual, this could include your car, boat, artwork, cottage, rental property, or personal residence. As a business, this could include your business assets and property.

The CRA can then have your assets and property advertised and sold by a court enforcement officer. If the CRA does this, you will have to pay all reasonable costs and charges the CRA incurs. The CRA will apply the net proceeds of the sale to your debt. You will still have to pay any remaining debt.”

The Canadian government also has the ability to seize assets for drug related offences even those who are distant from it.

Source: “The Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (“CDSA”) is an important device in the federal government’s law enforcement arsenal. At the government’s request, it permits a court to order the seizure and restraint of any offence-related property pending the outcome of the offender’s criminal trial and, on conviction, complete forfeiture of the property to the government. “Offence-related property” under the CDSA includes any property, within or outside Canada, that is used in any manner in connection with the commission of a designated substance offence.”

Bail In:

Part of a wider rework of the Canadian economic system Bail in allows the Banks to seize deposits and use them to buy shares. This would allow them to also used it for “other economical policy.”

Introducing a Bank Recapitalization “Bail-in” Regime

To protect Canadian taxpayers in the unlikely event of a large bank failure, the Government is proposing to implement a bail-in regime that would reinforce that bank shareholders and creditors are responsible for the bank’s risks—not taxpayers. This would allow authorities to convert eligible long-term debt of a failing systemically important bank into common shares to recapitalize the bank and allow it to remain open and operating. Such a measure is in line with international efforts to address the potential risks to the financial system and broader economy of institutions perceived as “too-big-to-fail”.

The Government is proposing to introduce framework legislation for the regime along with accompanying enhancements to Canada’s bank resolution toolkit. Regulations and guidelines setting out further features of the regime will follow. This will provide stakeholders with an additional opportunity to comment on elements of the proposed regime.

Government Action For Unemployment:

“This is how it works: the federal government will offer to eliminate all personal debts (mortgages, loans, credit cards, etc) which all funding will be provided to Canada by the IMF under what will become known as the World Debt Reset program.

In exchange for acceptance of this total debt forgiveness the individual would forfeit ownership of any and all property and assets forever.”

Numerous sources appear to have been taken down on this topic. This included an article from Reuters. Basic income however is getting increasing support with even unions supporting this move. A large amount of the government’s party is also throwing their weight behind this. UBI has been trialled in parts of Canada and is picking up the support of people. Already a Covid version of UBI is being given out however that has stopped.

Debt Reset:

This is not a conspiracy and has numerous parties that are pushing for this.

“Achieving long-term debt sustainability will depend on a large-scale shift in the world’s approach to debt and investment transparency,” said the World Bank president, David Malpass. “The time has come for a much more comprehensive approach to tackling the debt crisis facing the people in the poorest countries – one that involves debt-service suspension as well as broader efforts such as debt-stock reduction and swifter debt-restructuring, grounded in greater debt transparency.”

https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/oct/12/world-bank-debt-relief-record-levels-covid

Suspension of debt for low income countries is already occuring with all nations apart from China wanting to do this much more. A constant theme is that this is not doing enough.

Global Support

So far, the world has managed to avoid a systemic debt crisis, mostly for two reasons:

– First, very low interest rates and massive monetary policy support. Central banks throughout the world lowered interest rates and supplied liquidity. Swap lines quickly established helped many emerging countries maintain market access. Our latest estimation is that these measures add up to US$ 7.3 trillion.

– Second, extraordinary direct financial support, including IMF emergency financing to 76 countries; and debt service relief to the most vulnerable economies through the G20 Debt Service Suspension Initiative (DSSI, to 44 countries); and the IMF’s Catastrophe Containment and Relief Trust (to 29 members).

This support has bought the world some time. We ought to use it wisely. A pandemic-induced systemic debt crisis cannot be ruled out. The longer the problem is postponed, the worse it will become. “

Canadian Military deployed in Canada:

“Deployment of military personnel into major metropolitan areas as well as all major roadways to establish travel checkpoints. Restrict travel and movement. Provide logistical support to the area. Expected by Q3 2021.”

There is easily provisions during a natural disaster for Canada to deploy armed service individuals. As detailed above the Minister could just make them health officials and there is nothing stopping that. They are also working heavily on propaganda at the current moment.
