The Climate Change Money Pit: Where Is The Money Really Going?

Ever think that your tax dollars are being wasted on the climate change scam? Well, they are. But at least, one can have a better idea of “where” they are being wasted. Here are some, but not all of the recent amounts in recent years.

Considering how little attention any of this gets in the media, or even in political spheres, it’s fair to ask why. Notice that scandals in Ottawa tend to be over relatively minor things. It’s a great way to divert attention.

Some of the grants contain little to no information, making it impossible to say for certain what’s happening. They could be legitimate, or they could just be slush funds. This list only contains money handed over by Ottawa, not any Provincial or local efforts.

Keep in mind, this is nowhere near the full list of such payments, but does include many of the larger grants. Now, where is any of this going? While some are spent locally, many are handed out to foreign groups. Let’s look at a few of them.

The Green Climate Fund is essentially a large slush fund that countries pay into, so that the money can be doled out to various climate programs, with little to no accountability. Of course, no one ever voted on allowing unelected bureaucrats to do this, but whatever.

4.3 Catalysing private sector finance at scale
21. Contributing to making financial flows managed by the private sector consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate resilient development is key to realizing the scale of resources – in the trillions – needed to implement developing countries’ NDCs, ACs, NAPs, TNAs, TPs , and other climate strategies. The GCF’s 2020-2023 programming will aim to more systematically and fully realize the potential of the GCF to mobilize resources at scale, and support activities to increase the impact of investments, while encouraging a wider alignment of financial flows with countries’ climate plans and strategies.

According to their updated 2020 to 2023 plan, the Green Climate Fund projects that trillions of dollars (with a “T”) will be needed for developing countries to implement their various goals.

The African Development Bank Group is set up to hand out grants to companies that are working to achieve the UNSDA, or the Agenda 2030 goals. This acts as a middleman to write the cheques. Interestingly, in its FAQ section, there isn’t a question about ensuring the accountability of the funds.

The Asian Development Bank, hands out money to finance a variety of projects, with climate change being one of them. It’s interesting, given how nations like China, Japan and South Korea are actually more wealthy than Canada.

The Inter-American Development Bank works in much the same ways as others, acting as a middleman to hand out money for various projects related to the UN Sustainable Development Agenda. This primarily takes effect in South America.

Keep in mind, there is virtually no way to track the money once it’s left the country. This means there is really no way to ensure it goes where it’s supposed to. An astute person will realize how absurd it is for Canada to be borrowing money only to be sending it off overseas, at least the portions sent abroad. We will be charged endless interest for funds that will never benefit Canadians. An even more observant person will take note that the international banking system means private borrowing, and no way to pay it off.

But hey, as long as Canada appears virtuous in the eyes of outsiders, then what else matters?

(Charity) University Of Toronto “Institute For Pandemics” Funded By Millers, Merck, Run By Ontario Science Table

Remember those conspiracy nuts saying this was never going to end? The University of Toronto Institute for Pandemics was launched in 2020. It hosts many of the same players from the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, and the Ontario Science Table, such as Adalsteinn Brown, David Fisman and Colin Furness.

Fun fact: University of Toronto has several registered charities tied to its name. Much more on that later.

COVID-19, SARS and other urgent health threats began in animals. It’s time to drop misleading distinctions between human and animal health. Our underpinning “one health” approach considers human, animal and environmental health together.

Read between the lines on this. Not only is this meant to be about human health, but “fighting climate change” could easily be worked into the narrative.

The cause of pandemics is complex; beyond any single government or world body to address. But the opportunities are equally strong, if we can couple technological advances with an intimate knowledge of health systems, economics, the intersectional social determinants of health — and the credibility to influence change amid a historic crisis of trust in governments and the media. Universities must play a central role if we are to mitigate the human suffering and economic devastation caused by pandemics.

This group also promotes the globalist narrative that no country can do this on their own. There is also the implicit declaration that they will try to influence how the media perceives Government. This comes across as pushing propaganda.

The same self-declared “Ontario Science Table” experts who advocate for stripping the rights of Ontarians away will now be doing it directly from the U of T. As shown earlier, there is no real independence, either from Government, or the World Health Organization. It’s quite the rabbit hole.

This “institute” was started up thanks to a $1 million donation from the Vohra-Miller Foundation. About the couple that heads it:

Sabina Vohra-Miller graduated from the University of Toronto, with both a Bachelors and Masters in the pharmaceutical studies. She then spent several years in that field before starting up the Vohra-Miller Foundation with her husband. She co-founded the South Asian Health Network, which pushes vaccines and anti-racism, and founded Unambiguous Science, a website that pushes vaccines. She’s now on the Advisory Table of the Institute for Pandemics.

It’s a bit disturbing that Sabina either misrepresents (or simply is unaware) that these “vaccines” are not approved. They were given interim authorization for emergency use. But her website does little except shill and promote them.

Craig Miller spent years with Kijiji, which is an eBay company. He then moved on to Shopify, leaving in 2020. A few side notes: (a) eBay was founded by Pierre Omidyar, who was been involved in social change, and a “more informed media”; and (b) Shopify was contracted to make a contact tracing app with the Federal Government.

Craig also publicly pushes the climate change narrative. It will be interesting to see if (or how) the Institute for Pandemics will incorporate that into their agenda.

Both of them seem to have ties to organizations that will benefit from prolonging this “pandemic”.

Merck Canada’s $3-million investment will help the centre’s diverse mix of public health researchers to better understand the decision-making of individuals and communities around whether and when to receive immunizations. With expertise in vaccine science, social and behavioural health, equity and health systems, the centre’s faculty members will produce scientific research to aid the Ontario government, policy-makers and public health advocates around the world in increasing public knowledge of and access to immunizations.

Also consider that Merck Canada (the drug company) donated $3 million to the Institute for Pandemics. From their perspective, it makes sense. More pandemics mean a larger market for more drugs. Of course, with tax rebates from the Canada Revenue Agency, this $3 million gift will cost considerably less. This school has quite a few pharma donors.

It was covered previously how several current Medical Officers of Health are either Professors at U of T, or have other ties to the school. This sets up an obvious conflict of interest.

  • Barbara Yaffe – Ontario Deputy Medical Officer
  • Eileen De Villa – Toronto Chief Medical Officer
  • Vinita Dubey – Toronto Associate Medical Officer of Health
  • Lisa Berger – Toronto Associate Medical Officer of Health
  • Christine Navarro – Toronto Associate Medical Officer of Health
  • Avis Lynn Noseworthy – Medical Officer of Health for the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge
  • Vera Etches – Ottawa Deputy Medical Officer of Health
  • Brent Moloughney – Ottawa Associate Medical Officer
  • Lawrence C. Loh – Peel Medical Officer of Health
  • Hamidah Meghani – Halton Region Medical Health Officer
  • Nicola Mercer – Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Medical Officer (U of T Medical School)
  • Mustafa Hirji – Niagara Acting Medical Officer of Health (U of T graduate)
  • Elizabeth Richardson – Hamilton Medical Officer of Health (U of T graduate)

Adalsteinn Brown is the head of the Ontario Science Table, and the Institute for Pandemics. He also runs the Dalla Lana School for Public Health. This effectively means he is the boss of other Professors in that Department. How will the power dynamics work here, as these MOH are supposed to be independent?

Moreover, there are other U of T Professors on the Science Table and the Institute for Pandemics. Will these create conflicts with the MOH, and their dual roles? Why isn’t all of this publicly discussed?

  • Students’ Alzheimer’s Alliance at the University of Toronto (SAAUT)
  • Scholarship Bursary & Education Committee Medical Alumni Association of University of Toronto
  • Student Christian Movement in the University of Toronto
  • The Encumeical Chaplaincy at the University of Toronto
  • The Governing Council of the University of Toronto
  • Trust Under Will of Reuben W Leonard for University of Toronto
  • University of Toronto International Health Program (UTIHP)
  • University of Toronto Community Radio Inc.
  • University of Toronto Schools

Interesting bit of information: there isn’t just 1 charity tied to U of T. There are 9 of them. However, only a few of them are of concern for this article. The Governing Council of the University is by far the biggest one. In their recent tax filings, this NGO claimed to be financing work and research globally. These include:

-UNITED STATES
-(Other countries in Europe)
-(Other countries in Asia and Oceania)
-UNITED KINGDOM
-FRANCE
-(Other countries in Africa)
-SPAIN
-UGANDA
-KENYA
-THAILAND
-GERMANY
-ZAMBIA
-ITALY
-INDIA
-REPUBLIC OF NORTH MACEDONIA
-BANGLADESH
-KOREA, REPUBLIC OF

-ISRAEL
-JAMAICA
-MEXICO
-BRAZIL
-JAPAN
-UKRAINE
-COLOMBIA
-GUYANA
-CAMBODIA
-GHANA
-EGYPT
-MADAGASCAR

So much for being a Canadian school. Now, how much money are they actually taking in and spending each year?

The Governing Council of the University takes in some $3 billion annually. They also pay their Executives very, very well. But it’s easier to do when the donations received are subsidized by the public.

It’s worth pointing out that this “charity” operates plenty of programs abroad. This is likely since many of their donors have interests abroad. A more detailed look at their financials would be appreciated, but here are some of the more generous ones listed by the school.

Is all of this going towards education and research? Or is it to be used to justify draconian measures UNDER THE PRETENSE of education and research?

Healthcare Of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP) Owns Stock In Vaccines & Masks Being Pushed

The Ontario Science Table lists groups in the health care sector as its partners. Whether or not the individual members support this, and to what extent, the pensions of a lot of people are tied up in promoting their agenda.

HOOPP, the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan has some interesting medical holdings. This is at least according the SEC, or U.S. Securities and Exchanges Commission. While there is nothing inherently bad in investing in your own field, it will be driven by the way you want it to go.

The fund claims to have over $100 billion in net assets, or equity. Fair enough, let’s take a look at where some of that money is.

COMPANY AMOUNT
1Life Healthcare $540,000
3M Co. $462,000
Alexion Pharmaceuticals $34,891,000
Alnylam Pharmaceuticals $213,000
Alpha Healthcare Acquisition Corp $2,232,000
Amplitude Health Care Acquisition $930,000
Bausch Health Cos $2,366,000
Biogen Inc. $235,000
CVS Health Corp $32,871
Cytomx Therapeutics Inc. $835,000
Deerfield Healthcare Technology Acquisition $2,696,000
DFP Healthcare Acquisition $3,633,000
Gilead Sciences $6,420,000
HCA Healthcare $142,000
Healthcare Merger Corp. $1,019,000
Jazz Pharmaceuticals PLC $3,538,000
Johnson & Johnson $34,401,000
Livongo Health Inc. $6,169,000
Merck & Co. $6,221,000
Pfizer $38,467,000
Regeneron Pharmaceuticals $1,052,000

The individual companies weren’t named in the HOOPP paperwork, so a visit to the SEC was needed for that. For reference, Gilead is the manufacturer of Veklury, also known as Remdesivir, a drug (not a vaccine) to counter Covid-19. It was given interim authorization to be used in Canada. Janssen (which is owned by Johnson & Johnson) also has an authorized “vaccine” in Canada. So does Pfizer, which is partnered with BioNTech. Yes, these are the same companies.

As for the next group, this is on the list of things that will make you go “hmmm”. If health care workers in Ontario were expecting, or wanting, a shutdown of society, these would be the companies to invest in.

A serious question: does it come across as a conflict of interest when health care workers are pushing pharmaceuticals which their pension plans own stock in? And it gets stranger.

COMPANY AMOUNT
Alibaba Group Holdings $730,000,000
Alphabet Inc. $4,799,000
Amazon $18,848
Beyond Meat Inc. $151,000
Blackline Software $16,000
Blackrock $85,000
Blackstone Group $625,000
Broadcom Inc. $181,000
Coca Cola Co. $58,552,000
Dish Network Corporation $89,000
E-Bay $101,000
Facebook $24,022,000
Goldman Sachs $15,978,000
Grid Dynamics Inc. $4,676,000
Mastercard $427,644,000
Microsoft Corp. $298,081
Netflix $335,000
Nike $2,354
PayPal Holdings $378,000
Salesforce $2,746,000
Shaw Communications $6,386,000
Shopify $50,537,000
Starbucks $11,065,000
Visa $1,802,000
Walmart $13,148,000
Zoom Communications $216,000

HOOPP seems to be investing in everything that we need in order to have a cashless society, working from home, and an abundance of pharmaceuticals. But that’s probably just a coincidence.

While most of the profiles of the HOOPP leadership were privatized, a few were in the open. Some interesting details revealed in them.

Tanya Pereira is the Senior Director of Operations at HOOPP. She is also a Strategic Advisor at Andone Pharmaceuticals, during that same time period.

John Watson is the Director of Operations Support at HOOPP. He has also been charge of other pension plans. Early in his career, he was a records supervisor at Sick Kids Hospital Toronto, which gets significant funding from the Gates Foundation.

HOOPP claims to be pushing the ESG/green agenda pretty hard. So expect that they’ll only be investing in such companies that “appear” to be green, regardless of whether or not they actually are green. They sing the praises about sustainability and climate change. Most people have heard it all before.

As for the HOOPP owning stock in these vaccines and masks, and their members pushing them on the public, that is downright shady, to say the least. True, it’s the doctors and nurses themselves who market it to the lay person, but how does this look?

Is this ancient? According to the SEC, it covers the period up to December 31, 2020, and was filed on March 1, 2021. Now, it’s possible that these shares have since been sold, but the first interim authorizations were coming out before then. Again, how does it look?

CCS #7(C): The NGOs & Special Interest Groups Behind The Carbon Tax Challenges

Yes, the Supreme Court of Canada recently declared the Carbon tax to be constitutional. But who exactly were the NGOs pushing for this to be accepted?

1. Debunking The Climate Change Scam

The entire climate change industry, (and yes, it is an industry) is a hoax perpetrated by the people in power. See the other articles on the scam, the propaganda machine in action, and some of the court documents in Canada. Carbon taxes are just a small part of the picture, and conservatives are intentionally sabotaging their court cases.

The list of both the Governments and NGOs participating in the Supreme Court challenge are available to all. Likewise, the arguments they submit are all posted publicly. While it’s too extensive to cover everything, let’s dig down anyway.

5. Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission

Canada Ecofiscal Commission recommends raising Canada’s Carbon tax to $210/tonne, and are fully behind the climate agenda. But who exactly is involved with this organization? Who is calling the shots?

Chris Ragan is the Chair of the Canada Ecofiscal Commission. Prior to that, he was: Advisor to the Governor of the Bank of Canada; Advisor to the Finance Minister of Canada; and worked for the C.D. Howe Institute.

Glen Hodgson‘s history includes: Conference Board of Canada, where he was Senior Vice-President and Chief Economist for twelve years; the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Washington D.C.; Export Development Canada (EDC); and the Canadian Department of Finance. His affiliations include: Senior Fellow at the C.D. Howe Institute; Chief Economist with International Financial Consulting Ltd (IFCL)

Jason Dion was a project manager and economist at the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), where his work focused on climate change mitigation and adaptation, green public procurement, and sustainable infrastructure. Jason is the author of numerous publications, including environmental fiscal reform studies for the governments of Mauritius and Mozambique, funded by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

Steven Williams is the CEO of Suncor, and is also on the McKinsey & Company Advisory Committee. In 2005 he was appointed to the National Roundtable on the Environment and the Economy by the Prime Minister, then Paul Martin. He was also part of COP21 in Paris in 2015.

The advisory Board includes:

  • Michael Harcourt, former Vancouver Mayor
  • Gordon Campbell, former Vancouver Mayor, former BC Premier
  • Jean Charest, former Quebec Premier
  • Paul Martin, former Prime Minister

There are more of course, but a lot of interesting connections to the political world. And perhaps a coincidence, but McGill and Simon Fraser Universities keep coming up in their biographies.

6. Canadian Coalition For Rights Of The Child

Our Work

The Canadian Coalition for the Rights of Children (CCRC) is a network of Canadian organizations and individuals who promote respect for the rights of children. Its purpose is to: exchange information; provide public education materials about the Convention on the Rights of the Child; monitor implementation of the Convention in Canada; and engage in dialogue with government officials on child rights issues.

The objectives of the Coalition are:

-To uphold human rights in Canada and the world, in accordance with the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child and its related conventions and protocols, by providing relevant public education programs such as workshops and seminars; and
-To monitor and report on the implementation of the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child in Canada and internationally.

What We Do

The Convention on the Rights of the Child is the guiding framework for all activities of the coalition. Those activities include:
-Monitoring and promoting the implementation of children’s rights in Canada, in both domestic policies and international relations.
-Establishing national, provincial, and local links between groups concerned about the well-being of children, to share information and co-operate in the advancement of children’s rights.
-Fostering education and awareness in Canada about the rights of children, especially among young Canadians.
-Promoting Canada’s role in international bodies that foster children’s rights and engaging Canadians in international initiatives to advance respect for children’s rights.

How We Do It

Children’s Rights Monitoring
-The CCRC brings together Canadian children and civil society organizations to participate in the regular five-year reviews of Canada’s implementation of the CRC before the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child.
-The CCRC makes submissions on policy proposals before parliament from the perspective of children’s rights.
-The Coalition provides a child-rights analysis of the federal budget and other national policies.
-The CCRC helps children from all parts of Canada participate in consultations on matters that affect them, with the support of coalition members. Canadian children have participated in the World Summit for Children, the Earth Summit, the UN Special Session for Children, and other national and international events.
-The CCRC provided policy recommendations for Canada’s participation in the UN Special Session for Children, and for Canada’s Action Plan, entitled “A Canada Fit for Children.

Presumably, wanting carbon dioxide gone is a children’s rights issue. This group openly admits that its major goals involve seeing through the implementation of a child’s right treaty.

It’s list of Directors is pretty impressive, but this seemingly has nothing to do with the climate change agenda. Nonetheless, they have been granted Intervenor status with the Supreme Court of Canada, along with Generation Squeeze

7. David Suzuki Foundation

This was addressed in considerable detail in another article. Take a deeper look into what exactly is going on, and what their interests really are. It’s a very well funded organization. There’s also details provided on the International Emissions Trading Association, (IETA).

8. Progress Alberta

Progress Alberta describes itself as a progressive leaning advocacy group. To their credit, they don’t claim to be neutral in the policies they call for. One of their members, Jim Storrie, recently worked for the Alberta NDP, which is interesting. There is little information about who their donors actually are.

9. Smart Prosperity Institute, Green Bonds

Smart Prosperity Institute’s annual “Green Bonds – State of the Market in Canada” reports provide unique insight on the role of green bonds in funding environment and climate-related projects in Canada. The annual report is a special supplement to the Bonds and Climate Change: The State of the Market global report and is prepared collaboratively with Climate Bonds Initiative. Commissioned by HSBC, the report marks specific highlights from the current year, emerging trends, and identifies specific opportunities for market development of green bonds in Canada.

The Smart Prosperity Institute is heavily in selling “climate bonds“, and partners with HSBC and the Climate Bonds Initiative. Their financial interest in this enterprise heavily depends on there being continued growth in the bond market.

The Climate Bonds Initiative publicly posts that the market for their climate bonds may eventually top $1 trillion in value. But this can only happen if Governments everywhere continue to push the narrative that climate change is about to cause a worldwide disaster.

Green Bonds have infiltrated Ontario and Quebec, and elsewhere. More and more public money is being sunk into these ventures.

Steven Williams, CEO of Suncor, is also part of Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission, another Intervenor trying to keep the Carbon tax intact. The Tides Foundation gets some funding from George Soros, head of Open Society. Various branches of Government — relying on taxpayer money — also fund this group. The McConnell Foundation also contributes to Youth Climate Lab.

10. Youth Climate Lab, Infiltration Manual

Dominique Souris, the co-Founder and Executive Director of Youth Climate Lab, is also a member of the World Economic Forum. Both groups are ideologically aligned with the climate change agenda.

Ronny Jumeau was appointed Seychelles’ Permanent Representative to the United Nations and Ambassador to the United States for the first time. He was also Ambassador to Canada, Brazil, Cuba and several Caribbean islands until 2012 when he became his country’s New York-based roving Ambassador for Climate Change and Small Island Developing State Issues. He is the Member of the Board of the Green Climate Fund (GCF), representing Small Island Developing States(SIDS) and a Member of the Executive Council of SIDS DOCK, the global sustainable energy initiative for Small Island Developing States (SIDS). He is also a Director at Youth Climate Lab

Youth Climate Lab — Infiltration Manual

Youth Climate Lab produces an “infiltration manual“, (their words, not mine), to give people step by step instruction on how to insert the climate change agenda into local politics. They are partnered with the climate caucus, and funded by the McConnell Foundation.

11. What Does All This Mean To Canada?

Various Provincial Premiers intentionally sabotaged their court challenges by playing along with the climate change scam. Now, it seems that several NGOs acting as Intervenors had their own agenda in making submissions. Even groups like the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation only opposed it on groups it was wasteful.

It’s also interesting, that piece by Diverge Media, which lists Canada’s Supreme Court Chief Justice speaking at an eco-conference. That alone raises questions about how impartial he is.

In the end, it’s the Canadian public that gets hurt by this politically driven Carbon tax. There wasn’t anyone fighting for the public during those proceedings.

CCS #6(C): Supreme Court Rules Carbon Tax Constitutional, No Real Opposition From “Conservatives”

The Supreme Court of Canada, in a 6-3 decision, confirmed that the Carbon tax is constitutional. This is not surprising in the slightest, considering there was no real opposition. All parties parroted the sentiments that climate change was an urgent threat that needed dealt with. In short, they agreed with the underlying facts, so there wasn’t much to argue.

The “resistance”, pictured above, did nothing but orchestrate a dog-and-pony show. It duped plenty of people into convincing them that these politicians were actually fighting.

1. Debunking The Climate Change Scam

The entire climate change industry, (and yes, it is an industry) is a hoax perpetrated by the people in power. See the other articles on the scam, the propaganda machine in action, and some of the court documents in Canada. Carbon taxes are just a small part of the picture, and conservatives are intentionally sabotaging their court cases.

2. The Supreme Court Of Canada Ruling

[7] Global climate change is real, and it is clear that human activities are the primary cause. In simple terms, the combustion of fossil fuels releases greenhouse gases (“GHGs”) into the atmosphere, and those gases trap solar energy from the sun’s incoming radiation in the atmosphere instead of allowing it to escape, thereby warming the planet. Carbon dioxide is the most prevalent and recognizable GHG resulting from human activities. Other common GHGs include methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, sulfur hexafluoride and nitrogen trifluoride.

[8] At appropriate levels, GHGs are beneficial, keeping temperatures around the world at levels at which humans, animals, plants and marine life can live in balance. And the level of GHGs in the atmosphere has been relatively stable over the last 400,000 years. Since the 1950s, however, the concentrations of GHGs in the atmosphere have increased at an alarming rate, and they continue to rise. As a result, global surface temperatures have already increased by 1.0°C above pre-industrial levels, and that increase is expected to reach 1.5°C by 2040 if the current rate of warming continues.

This appears to be almost cut and paste directly from Ontario’s Factum during their Provincial challenge.

[9] These temperature increases are significant. As a result of the current warming of 1.0°C, the world is already experiencing more extreme weather, rising sea levels and diminishing Arctic sea ice. Should warming reach or exceed 1.5°C, the world could experience even more extreme consequences, including still higher sea levels and greater loss of Arctic sea ice, a 70 percent or greater global decline of coral reefs, the thawing of permafrost, ecosystem fragility and negative effects on human health, including heat-related and ozone-related morbidity and mortality.

[10] The effects of climate change have been and will be particularly severe and devastating in Canada. Temperatures in this country have risen by 1.7°C since 1948, roughly double the global average rate of increase, and are expected to continue to rise faster than that rate. Canada is also expected to continue to be affected by extreme weather events like floods and forest fires, changes in precipitation levels, degradation of soil and water resources, increased frequency and severity of heat waves, sea level rise, and the spread of potentially life-threatening vector-borne diseases like Lyme disease and West Nile virus.

[11] The Canadian Arctic faces a disproportionately high risk from climate change. There, the average temperature has increased at a rate of nearly three times the global average, and that increase is causing significant reductions in sea ice, accelerated permafrost thaw, the loss of glaciers and other ecosystem impacts. Canada’s coastline, the longest in the world, is also being affected disproportionately by climate change, as it experiences changes in relative sea level and rising water temperatures, as well as increased ocean acidity and loss of sea ice and permafrost. Climate change has also had a particularly serious effect on Indigenous peoples, threatening the ability of Indigenous communities in Canada to sustain themselves and maintain their traditional ways of life.

[12] Climate change has three unique characteristics that are worth noting. First, it has no boundaries; the entire country and entire world are experiencing and will continue to experience its effects. Second, the effects of climate change do not have a direct connection to the source of GHG emissions. Provinces and territories with low GHG emissions can experience effects of climate change that are grossly disproportionate to their individual contributions to Canada’s and the world’s total GHG emissions. In 2016, for example, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan and British Columbia accounted for approximately 90.5 percent of Canada’s total GHG emissions, while the approximate percentages were 9.1 percent for the other five provinces and 0.4 percent for the territories. Yet the effects of climate change are and will continue to be experienced across Canada, with heightened impacts in the Canadian Arctic, coastal regions and Indigenous territories. Third, no one province, territory or country can address the issue of climate change on its own. Addressing climate change requires collective national and international action. This is because the harmful effects of GHGs are, by their very nature, not confined by borders.

B. Canada’s Efforts to Address Climate Change
.
[13] Canada’s history of international commitments to address climate change began in 1992 with its ratification of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, U.N. Doc. A/AC.237/18 (Part II)/Add.1, May 15, 1992 (“UNFCCC”). After failing to meet its commitments under multiple UNFCCC agreements, including the Kyoto Protocol, U.N. Doc. FCCC/CP/1997/L.7/Add.1, December 10, 1997, and the Copenhagen Accord, U.N. Doc. FCCC/CP/2009/11/Add.1, December 18, 2009, Canada agreed to the Paris Agreement in 2015. Recognizing that “climate change represents an urgent and potentially irreversible threat to human societies and the planet and thus requires the widest possible cooperation by all countries”, the participating states agreed to hold the global average temperature increase to well below 2.0°C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit that increase to 1.5°C: United Nations, Framework Convention on Climate Change, Report of the Conference of the Parties on its twenty-first session, U.N. Doc. FCCC/CP/2015/10/Add.1, January 29, 2016, at p. 2; Paris Agreement, art. 2(1)(a). Canada ratified the Paris Agreement in 2016, and the agreement entered into force that same year. Canada committed to reducing its GHG emissions by 30 percent below 2005 levels by 2030.

This has been a bipartisan effort, to entangle Canada with more and more UN treaties. Each one erodes more sovereignty.

[14] Under the Paris Agreement, states are free to choose their preferred approaches for meeting their nationally determined contributions. In Canada, the provinces and the federal government agreed to work together in order to meet the country’s international commitments. In March 2016, before Canada had ratified the Paris Agreement, all the First Ministers met in Vancouver and adopted the Vancouver Declaration on clean growth and climate change (“Vancouver Declaration”): Canadian Intergovernmental Conference Secretariat, March 3, 2016 (online). In that declaration, the First Ministers recognized the call in the Paris Agreement for significant reductions in GHG emissions and committed to “[i]mplement[ing] GHG mitigation policies in support of meeting or exceeding Canada’s 2030 target of a 30% reduction below 2005 levels of emissions, including specific provincial and territorial targets and objectives”: ibid, at p. 3. In the Vancouver Declaration, the First Ministers also recognized the importance of a collaborative approach between provincial and territorial governments and the federal government to reducing GHG emissions and noted that “the federal government has committed to ensuring that the provinces and territories have the flexibility to design their own policies to meet emission reductions targets”: ibid.

[15] The Vancouver Declaration resulted in the establishment of a federal-provincial-territorial Working Group on Carbon Pricing Mechanisms (“Working Group”) to study the role of carbon pricing mechanisms in meeting Canada’s emissions reduction targets. The Working Group included at least one representative from each provincial and territorial government as well as the federal government. Its final report identified carbon pricing as one of the most efficient policy approaches for reducing GHG emissions and outlined three carbon pricing options: (1) a single form broad-based carbon pricing mechanism that would apply across Canada, an option that would not be supportive of existing or planned provincial or territorial pricing policies; (2) broad-based carbon pricing mechanisms across Canada, an option that would give each province and territory flexibility as to the choice of instruments; and (3) a range of broad-based carbon pricing mechanisms in some jurisdictions, while the remaining jurisdictions would implement other mechanisms or policies designed to meet GHG emissions reduction targets within their borders: Working Group on Carbon Pricing Mechanisms, Final Report, 2016 (online), at pp. 1, 44-47 and 50.

[16] Carbon pricing, or GHG pricing, is a regulatory mechanism that, in simple terms, puts a price on GHG emissions in order to induce behavioural changes that will lead to widespread reductions in emissions. By putting a price on GHG emissions, governments can incentivize individuals and businesses to change their behaviour so as to make more environmentally sustainable purchasing and consumption choices, to redirect their financial investments, and to reduce their GHG emissions by substituting carbon-intensive goods for low-GHG alternatives. Generally speaking, there are two different approaches to GHG pricing: (1) a carbon tax that entails setting a price on GHG emissions directly, but not setting a cap on emissions; and (2) a cap-and-trade system that prices emissions indirectly by placing a cap on GHG emissions, allocating emission permits to businesses and allowing businesses to buy and sell emission permits from and to other businesses. A carbon tax sets an effective price per unit of GHG emissions. In a cap-and-trade system, the market sets an effective price per unit of GHG emissions, but a cap is placed on permitted emissions. Both approaches put a price on GHG emissions. I also find it worthwhile to note that while “carbon tax” is the term used among policy experts to describe GHG pricing approaches that directly price GHG emissions, it has no connection to the concept of taxation as understood in the constitutional context.

Losing the case at the Supreme Court of Canada was not surprising in the least. At no point during this challenge, or the Saskatchewan, Onatario, or Alberta challenges, so these so-called “conservatives” ever deny that climate change is a threat to humanity. They agree almost word for word with the UN agendas. Since there is no real opposition on the “facts”, the Court is only asked to address the case on narrow legal grounds.

Regarding the 1992 framework on climate change, it’s worth pointing out that “Conservative” Brian Mulroney was in power then, and had a large majority government. He didn’tt have to do this.

Also, the 2009 Copenhagen Accord was signed by “Conservative” Stephen Harper. He also signed Agenda 2030 in September 2015. Had he been reelected the following month, he almost certainly would have signed the Paris Agreement as well.

This is the “opposition” Trudeau had to contend with?

3. CPC Still Supports Climate Scam

Does any of this look like Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe actually opposes the agenda? He is fully on board with it, and just has a disagreement over the best way to proceed. Likewise with the other Premiers.

It’s amusing that Moe complains about being double crossed by Trudeau, as that is exactly what he did to his supporters in Saskatchewan.

4. CPC Still Supports Climate Scam

CPC Policy Declaration, August 2018

UN globalist Erin O’Toole seems to be fully on board with the climate agenda. Even if he were Prime Minister, it seems unlikely he would have done anything differently. The Paris Agreement is all about wealth transfer, and it’s disingenuous to claim otherwise.

Also, take a read through this earlier piece on the various Carbon tax challenges. They were doomed from the start.

IBC #8(B): Various Bonds, Enterprises, The World Bank Group Is Running

The World Bank tries to portray itself as an organization devoted to the welfare of humankind globally. However, the organization is involved in many bond schemes that most people are completely unaware of. It’s quite the lucrative side operation.

1. More On The International Banking Cartel

For more on the banking cartel, check this page. The Canadian Government, like so many others, has sold out the independence and sovereignty of its monetary system to foreign interests. BIS, like its central banks, exceed their agenda and try to influence other social agendas. See who is really controlling things, and the common lies that politicians and media figures tell. The bankers work with the climate mafia and pandemic pushers to promote mutual goals of control and debt slavery.

  • IBRD, The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development
  • IDA, The International Development Association
  • IFC, The International Finance Corporation
  • MIGA, The Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency
  • ICSID, The International Centre for Settlement of Investment Dispute

Partnering With Governments
Together, IBRD and IDA form the World Bank, which provides financing, policy advice, and technical assistance to governments of developing countries. IDA focuses on the world’s poorest countries, while IBRD assists middle-income and creditworthy poorer countries.
.
Partnering With The Private Sector
IFC, MIGA, and ICSID focus on strengthening the private sector in developing countries. Through these institutions, the World Bank Group provides financing, technical assistance, political risk insurance, and settlement of disputes to private enterprises, including financial institutions.
.
One World Bank Group
While our five institutions have their own country membership, governing boards, and articles of agreement, we work as one to serve our partner countries. Today’s development challenges can only be met if the private sector is part of the solution. But the public sector sets the groundwork to enable private investment and allow it to thrive. The complementary roles of our institutions give the World Bank Group a unique ability to connect global financial resources, knowledge, and innovative solutions to the needs of developing countries.

Most people don’t know this, but the World Bank is actually the partnership of 5 organizations. Strangely, an outside search of them reveals nothing about them, other than being part of the World Bank Group. A deep dive is needed into the inner workings of the World Bank, and is coming in a future article.

4. Types Of Bonds World Bank Involved With

Here are some of the programs the World Bank has been mixed up in. It’s quite the varied and lucrative enterprise. People can become very wealthy with these schemes, although, it’s dependent on others playing along.

  • Blockchain Bonds
  • Blue (Water) Bonds
  • Green Bonds
  • Pandemic Bonds
  • Social Bonds
  • Vaccine Bonds

5. World Bank & Blockchain Bonds

WASHINGTON/SYDNEY, August 23/24, 2018 – The World Bank launched bond-i (blockchain operated new debt instrument), the world’s first bond to be created, allocated, transferred and managed through its life cycle using distributed ledger technology. The two-year bond raised $110 million, marking the first time that investors have supported the World Bank’s development activities in a transaction that is fully managed using the blockchain technology.

The World Bank mandated Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) as arranger for the bond on August 10. The announcement was followed by a two-week consultation period with the market, with key investors indicating strong support for the issuance.

Investors in the bond include CBA, First State Super, NSW Treasury Corporation, Northern Trust, QBE, SAFA, and Treasury Corporation of Victoria. CBA and the World Bank will continue to welcome investor interest in the bond throughout its life cycle, and inquiries from other market participants in relation to the platform.

The bond is part of a broader strategic focus of the World Bank to harness the potential of disruptive technologies for development. In June 2017, the World Bank launched a Blockchain Innovation Lab to understand the impact of blockchain and other disruptive technologies in areas such as land administration, supply chain management, health, education, cross-border payments, and carbon market trading.

The World Bank Group started “blockchain bonds” in 2018. Rather than the more traditional methods, this would, as the name implies, use Blockchain technology as an alternative. The next round of bonds came in 2019.

6. World Bank & Blue (Water) Bonds

The Republic of Seychelles start the first sovereign “blue bond” in 2018. The Rockefeller Foundation, Standard Chartered Bank and Bank of New York Mellon helped with payments. The bonds themselves were placed with the private investors: Nuveen, Prudential and Calvert Impact Capital.

7. World Bank & Green/Climate Bonds

Climate Bonds, or “Green Bonds“, is yet another growing industry that the Rockefellers and other environmental groups are trying to pump up. This is an industry that is potentially worth $100 trillion or more. However, the money likely won’t be going where people think it will.

8. World Bank, PEFF & Pandemic Bonds

Washington, DC, June 28, 2017 – The World Bank (International Bank for Reconstruction and Development) today launched specialized bonds aimed at providing financial support to the Pandemic Emergency Financing Facility (PEF), a facility created by the World Bank to channel surge funding to developing countries facing the risk of a pandemic.

This marks the first time that World Bank bonds are being used to finance efforts against infectious diseases, and the first time that pandemic risk in low-income countries is being transferred to the financial markets.

The PEF will provide more than $500 million to cover developing countries against the risk of pandemic outbreaks over the next five years, through a combination of bonds and derivatives priced today, a cash window, and future commitments from donor countries for additional coverage.

The transaction, that enables PEF to potentially save millions of lives, was oversubscribed by 200% reflecting an overwhelmingly positive reception from investors and a high level of confidence in the new World Bank sponsored instrument. With such strong demand, the World Bank was able to price the transaction well below the original guidance from the market. The total amount of risk transferred to the market through the bonds and derivatives is $425 million.

In June 2017, the World Bank started up “Pandemic Bonds“, which would be a sort of insurance policy against infectious diseases. Of course, one has to wonder how far ahead they saw in starting this.

The PEFF, or Pandemic Emergency Financing Facility, will determine if there is a pandemic, according to certain criteria. But early in 2020, the World Bank was accused of “waiting for people to die”, by refusing to pay out this money.

9. World Bank & Social Impact Bonds

In February 2019 “Social Impact Bonds” were started up. They are marketed as a sort of social investment driver, to improve the quality of live for people in the 3rd World, particularly women. They are also supposed to help with the financing of the UNSDA, or United Nations Sustainable Development Agenda.

10. World Bank, IFFM & Vaccine Bonds

This was addressed in the Planned-emic series. Instead of giving money directly to GAVI, there is a convoluted scheme that involves making pledges to IFFIm, the International Finance Facility for Immunizations. Those pledges are then used to generate bonds which are sold to the World Bank. The World Bank then re-sells those bonds on the open market. The money from sales goes to GAVI, who uses it to finance their vaccine agenda.

Note: IFFIm is actually financed by GAVI (who is financed by Gates), so there isn’t really any independence here.

Of course, these means that donor pledges end up costing much more than originally told, or it means only a portion of that money is put to use.

11. Some Thoughts On These Bonds

In early 2020, the President of Belarus claimed that the IMF (International Monetary Fund), and World Bank, offered him a bribe of almost $1 billion if he would impose pandemic measures on his country. He refused. While that seemed like an absurd conspiracy theory at the time, more and more questions need to be answered.

What are the IMF and World Bank up to, and are these bonds connected to their push for drastic (and forced) social changes?

While all of these projects have nice enough sounding names, a question keeps coming up: why is it necessary to use these bonds at all? Instead of selling, and reselling bonds, shouldn’t the money go directly to the people who will be impacted? After all, the average person doesn’t benefit from increased bond values, only the bond holders do.

It’s interesting that the Rockefeller Foundation is so supportive of all of this. After all, they drafted the Lockstep Narrative in 2010. They lay out in broad strokes how to force social change under the false pretense of a global health crisis.

Of course, companies that don’t play along with the agenda, such as “non-green” industries, will soon be forced out of business. The threats have been openly made for a long time now.
