OMERS And The Questionable Contracts With LifeLabs

June 23, 2021, LifeLabs received a $66.3 million contract from the Public Health Agency of Canada. It was originally for $28.8 million, but the terms were amended. The company had certainly negotiated other arrangements before, but this was big. The purpose of this one was testing kits for the “virus” that’s terrorizing the world. The Minister of Public Services and Procurement would oversee the issuing of such agreements.

It’s not just the vaccine contracts that are worth a lot of money. Testing kits may in fact be worth even more, given for frequently they are used. As such, it’s important to do a little due diligence on who’s being awarded these deals.

OMERS, the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System, and some of its organizations have been in the spotlight before, but this most recent time needs to be discussed. It has to do with certain contracts that Ottawa had awarded. Unsurprisingly, Global News hasn’t addressed this.

The federal government has awarded three companies with contracts worth up to $631 million in total for COVID-19 border testing and other screening services.
.
Public Services and Procurement Canada says Switch Health, LifeLabs and Dynacare are carrying out testing of international travelers entering Canada at airports and land border crossings.

Last week, the Federal Government announced some $631 million to be spent for virus testing kits. Notwithstanding that the pandemic is a hoax, and the tests useless, something else is noteworthy.

Anita Anand used to be the Minister of Public Services and Procurement. In short, it was her job to oversee large purchases made by the Canadian Government. Naturally, this requires a great deal of transparency and integrity. However, things may not be so simple.

Specifically, her husband, John Knowlton, helps run OMERS. As the name implies, it manages the pension plans for many Provincial workers. Unsurprisingly, it owns stocks and bonds in other companies.

Conflicts of interest — or even the apparent conflict — must always be avoided. And this one looks far too cozy to simply be an oversight. In fairness, it could be legitimate, but does raise real questions.

Knowlton’s position is awkward, to say the least. While he’s now a Director at OMERS, he held similar roles in LifeLabs and Teranet. OMERS has interests in both of them. His company will directly profit from extra contracts awarded for testing equipment. Blacklock’s reported on this issue earlier, and it was denied that there was any insider dealing involved.

Something else happened Provincially a few months back that requires our attention. It involved engaging in some influence peddling of Doug Ford by a longtime ONPC operative.

On August 5, 2021, Jim Burnett of the Pathway Group lobbied the Ontario Government on behalf of OMERS, his client. What was the nature of the lobbying? According to the Ontario Registry:

Ongoing discussions in connection with investment in LifeLabs, Teranet, and other related OMERS investments relating to diagnostic lab sector reforms and proposals for alternative service delivery models for statutory registries and associated particular government services as they arise.

In short, this meeting was about getting the Ontario Government to pump money into certain companies and by extension, OMERS. However, Burnett has quite the connected past.

  • Deputy Campaign Manager (2020, O’Toole CPC run)
  • Targeted Seat Manager (ONPC, Ford 2018)
  • Deputy Campaign Manager for Christine Elliott (ONPC run)
  • Campaign Chair for Kevin O’Leary (2016 CPC run)
  • Campaign Organizer for Patrick Brown (2015 ONPC run)
  • Working for Tim Hudak (ONPC 2000 to 2001)
  • Working for Ernie Hardeman (ONPC 2000)

In all honesty, this looks shady as hell. Burnett used his considerable political ties in order to advance the business interests of his new client. The fact that he was a handler for Erin O’Toole may be the reason that the CPC doesn’t seem to object to such procurement deals.

While Anita Anand seems to influence the purchasing Federally, there’s some activity going on in Ontario as well. Glad to know that everything is done above board. This happens elsewhere as well.

For what it’s worth, LifeLabs has been lobbying in B.C. as well, seeking more contracts. The company openly admits that OMERS may be impacted by the outcome there. The lobbyist, Michael Gardiner, is a former Provincial Director of the BCNDP. In case anyone is unaware, the NDP is currently in power in this Province.

In February 2021, Teranet paid the Saskatchewan Government a visit, to talk about purchasing a land registration system. This was done by Kory Teneycke, who currently acts as a handler for Doug Ford.

Whenever political connections are intertwined in purchases like these, it’s always beneficial to start asking questions. Now, this last subject is off topic, but needs a mention:

It’s never a good sign to be featured by the World Economic Forum. OMERS also plays along with the climate change scam. It claims that such considerations will be factored into all future decisions.

Climate change is one of the defining issues of our time. We believe that as institutional investors, we have an important role to play as the world transitions to a lower carbon economy. We are focused on growing sustainably, by developing partnerships across our portfolio and finding new investment opportunities that support the transition

OMERS has endorsed the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) as it believes it is a helpful standard to deliver the information investors need to assess climate risk. We believe that engaging with our portfolio companies where climate change presents material risks, and striving to improve overall reporting and transparency, will enhance our understanding of the financial risks posed by climate change on our portfolio.

Like with other pension funds and investment companies, there appears to be a deliberate effort to embrace the green agenda laid out by Governments and their handlers. This happens even when it’s not necessarily what’s best for the plan holders.

Things are rarely as simple as they appear.

Aside from all of the stocks in pharmaceuticals and health care, the CPPIB has interests in many other organizations that will raise eyebrows. True, the “Great Reset” may be a massive conspiracy theory, but the investments here would suggest otherwise.

For reference, Alphabet Inc. is the company that owns Google and its subsidiaries, such as YouTube. It seems that being major stakeholders in the business will have great influence over the social media censorship that Governments ask them to play. CPPIB holds over $2 billion. Difficult to say no to your biggest shareholders.

Additionally the CPPIB holds over $50 million in stock in Twitter. This platform has also been brutal when it comes to censoring views that contradict official pandemic or election narratives.

This is certainly quite in the interesting portfolio: pro-big pharma, and pro-Great Reset. However, there is a bigger and more fundamental problem that needs to be addressed: liabilities.

Year Value of Fund Inv Income Rate of Return
2010 $127.6B $22.1B 14.9%
2011 $148.2B $20.6B 11.9%
2012 $161.6B $9.9B 6.6%
2013 $183.3B $16.7B 10.1%
2014 $219.1B $30.1B 16.5%

2016 $278.9B $9.1 6.8%
2017 $316.7B $33.5B 11.8%
2018 $356.B $36.7B 11.6%
2019 $392B $32B 8.9%

The CPPIB routinely crows about how well its investments do, and how the fund is worth hundreds of billions of dollars. The problem is that it has a screwy accounting system. Instead of taking into account all assets and liabilities, the health is determined by ability to meet current obligations. The fund has been properly accounted, and there is over $1 trillion in unfunded liabilities. This is money taken in an spent, for which it (should have been) paid out.

Most pension systems act as a ponzi scheme, where the only way to meet old obligations is with the infusion of new money. Clearly, such a system is unsustainable in the long term.

But hey, at least our investments in Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, Gilead, Eli Lilley and 3M are doing well. Good thing there is a “pandemic” to drive up demand for these products.

To hell with free speech and open media.
Big pharma is here to stay.

Ontario Teachers Pension Plan, And The Interesting Stocks They Own

https://twitter.com/ETFOeducators/status/1371865858046365704

The Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO) has publicly called for forcing masks on children, even those in kindergarten. However, not everything is as it appears. For example, the OTPP, the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan, owns $83 million in stock in 3M. This is a company that makes masks.

Also, an honourbale mention and shoutout to Stormhaven, who has covered this, and taken a different approach. Check that piece out as well, as it has lots of good information.

What else is in the OTPP (which includes both elementary and high school teachers)? Information on the holdings can be obtained for free at the U.S. SEC, the Securities and Exchanges Commission.

COMPANY AMOUNT
3M CO $83,000,000
Abbott Labs $355,000
Biogen Inc. $41,915,000
Eli Lilly & Co $1,110,000
Gilead Sciences $1,406,000
Globeus Med Inc. $513,000
Jazz Pharmaceuticals PLC $317,000
Johnson & Johnson $84,386,000
Medpace Holdings Inc. $393,000
Merck & Co. $406,000
Mersana Therapeutics $504,000
Moderna Inc. $970,000
Pfizer $599,000
Procter & Gamble $837,000
Regeneron Pharmaceuticals $736,000
Sarpeta Therapeutics $753,000
TEVA Pharmaceuticals $17,487,000
United Therapeutics Corp. $1,077,000
Vertex Pharmaceuticals $502,000
West Pharmaceutical SVSC $797,000

$83 million in 3M, a company that manufactures facemasks. This is one of those things that makes you go “hmmm….”, doesn’t it?

In addition to owning parts of companies involved in health care and pharmaceuticals, the OTPP has other interests in businesses that will also profit from extended lockdowns, and the “Great Reset”. Here are some of them:

COMPANY AMOUNT
Amazon Group $287,000
Apple $1,104,000
Bank of America Corp $579,000
Black Hills Corp $322,000
Blackstone Group $413,000
Costco Wholesale $943,000
Goldman Sachs $1,714,000
Home Dept $81,854
Kroger Co. $662,000
McDonald’s Corp. $81,651,000
Microsoft $244,167,000
PayPal Holdings $542,000
Pepsico $853,000
Rogers Communications $743,000
Shaw Communications $906,000
Tesla Inc. $561,455,000
Tri Pointe Group Inc. $1,118,000
Twitter Inc. $257,000
Verizon Communications $860,000
Visa Inc. $83,780,000
Zoom Video Communications $392,000

It’s not much of a stretch to see that the OTPP stands to benefit from lockdowns and the “Great Reset”. After all, they are heavily invested in industries and companies that will profit from the current situation.

In addition to owning part of 3M, this Pension Plan also owns considerable stock in Gilead Sciences, Eli Lilly, Merck, Moderna, Pfizer, Teva, and over $84 million in Johnson & Johnson. This could explain their support for the vaccine agenda. Then again, it could all just be a coincidence.

It could also be a coincidence that Jo Taylor, who’s in charge of the OTPP, has ties to the World Economic Forum. Likewise, it may just be happenstance that Mark Wiseman, who runs Blackrock (which owns SNC Lavalin), used to run the CPPIB, and helped set up the OTPP.

Read into it what you will.

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?

FCLT Global; World Economic Forum; CPPIB; Ontario Teachers

The Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario supporting forcing masks on kindergarten students. It’s interesting, since their pension fund is partnered with the World Economic Forum. It’s also part of the group Focus on Capital Long Term Global. How deep does this rabbit hole go?

1. More On The International Banking Cartel

For more on the banking cartel, check this page. 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. Many pension funds also seem tied to this agenda.

3. Focus On Capital Long Term Group

Millions of people around the world are saving money to meet personal goals – funding a comfortable retirement, saving for someone’s education, or buying a home, to name a few.

The funds to support these goals are safeguarded by institutional investors – pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, insurers, and asset managers – who invest in companies for the prospect of growth and security. These savers, their communities, and the institutions that support them make up the global investment value chain, and each benefit from long-term decisions in different ways:

Data shows that long-term-oriented investors deliver superior performance, and long-term-oriented companies outperform in terms of revenue, earnings, and job creation. But despite overwhelming evidence of the superiority of long-term investments, short-term pressures are hard to avoid. A majority of corporate executives agree that longer time horizons for business decisions would improve performance, and yet half say they would delay value-creating projects if it would mean missing quarterly earnings targets.

Not only are these organizations part of FCLT Group, but most are also partners of the World Economic Forum. It seems that asset management and social justice are joining forces. Ideologically, FCLT Group and WEK seem to align.

As a side note: Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild is one of the Strategic Advisors of FCLT Group. She also sits on the Trilateral Commission.

Let’s take a look at some of the companies in this group. These reviews hardly cover everything, but are to show some of the more interesting details of those involved. While nothing presented here proves anything underhanded is going on, the extensive connections are too great to ignore.

4. Bain Capital

Guidelines For Responsible Investment
With approximately $120 billion in assets under management, Bain Capital and its business units utilize a strategic, fact-based and diligence-driven investment approach that by definition includes a multitude of environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations.

Bain Capital believes that these ESG practices lead to better investment outcomes while considering the firm’s broader impacts on the environment and society. The firm takes its responsibility seriously and continually monitors the broad consequences of every investment to ensure we are taking all of our stakeholders’ needs into account. By living these values, we create lasting impact for our investors, teams, businesses and communities where we live and work.

Bain Capital is an American, multinational investment firm. It was co-founded by Mitt Romney, the ex-Massachusetts Governor, 2-time Presidential Candidate, and current Utah Senator. Like other firms, Bain is moving more and more into the en

Romney’s business history is interesting, and it includes start up money from Robert Maxwell, father of accused sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell.

5. Blackrock

Blackrock is a large, multinational investment firm. Lately, it has adopted the mantra of sustainable investing, and bringing that ideology into everything that it does.

Larry Fink is a Strategic Advisor for FCLT, and is the head of Blackrock, which he cofounded with several others. According to his profile:

“Mr. Fink serves as a member of the Board of Trustees of New York University and is Co-Chairman of the NYU Langone Medical Center Board of Trustees. Mr. Fink also serves on the Boards of The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Council on Foreign Relations and Robin Hood, the poverty-fighting charitable organization. He is also an Executive Committee member of The Partnership for New York City, the economic development organization.”

Blackrock also owns SNC Lavalin. That Quebec based firm has been involved in serious corruption scandals in recent years. However, thanks to its vast political connections, and lobbying everyone in Parliament, it has been able to get away from most of it.

Lavalin owes much of its success in lobbying for a deferred prosecution agreement to Bruce Hartley, and William Pristanski. Hartley worked in the Liberal Government of Jean Chretien, and Pristanski worked for the Conservative Government of Brian Mulroney. They influence both major parties at the Federal level.

6. Blackstone

Building on more than a decade of sustainability efforts, we are launching a program to reduce carbon emissions by 15% across all new investments where we control energy usage.

Over the last decade, Blackstone has helped its portfolio companies and properties improve their energy efficiency—generating meaningful savings while positively impacting the environment. Today, we are expanding these sustainability efforts by setting a goal of 15% carbon emissions reduction across all new investments where we control energy usage. We will support them in achieving this goal with a set of tools and resources to reduce their carbon footprint.

Another investment firm supporting ESG. This is unique in that it has former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney sitting on the Board of Directors

Rochelle B. Lazarus is a Board Member, and also sits on the Board of Merck (a pharmaceutical company), and on the Council on Foreign Relations. Director Ruth Porat also is part of the CFR. Former U.S Senator Kelly A. Ayotte was an advisor for Microsoft.

Blackstone also owns G4S, the private security firm that Brian Pallister brought into Manitoba as “extra help”. G4S runs detention services, and is involved in surveillance and intelligence gathering.

7. CPP Investments

At CPP Investments we consider responsible investing simply as intelligent long-term investing. Over the exceptionally long investment-horizon over which we invest, ESG factors have the potential to be significant drivers – or barriers – to profitability and shareholder value. For these reasons we refer to what many call ‘Responsible Investing’ activities simply as Sustainable Investing.

Given our legislative objective, we consider and integrate both ESG risks and opportunities into our investment analysis, rather than eliminating investments based on ESG factors alone.

As an owner, we monitor ESG factors and actively engage with companies to promote improved management of ESG, ultimately leading to enhanced long-term outcomes in the companies and assets in which more than 20 million CPP contributors and beneficiaries have a stake.

CPP Investments has established governing policies, approved by our Board of Directors, to guide our ESG activities. Our Policy on Sustainable Investing establishes how CPP Investments approaches ESG factors which aligns with our legislative objective to maximize long-term investment returns without undue risk of loss. Our Proxy Voting Principles and Guidelines provide guidance on how CPP Investments is likely to vote on matters put to shareholders and communicate CPP Investments’ views on governance matters.

The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB), is supposed to manage the national pension plan of Canadians.

There are several things to mention. First, in an honest accounting of the pension plan, there would be over $1 trillion in unfunded liabilities. It is propped up through ever increasing amounts of contributions. Second, this can only be propped up by an increasing contribution base — such as importing the 3rd World. Third, the overwhelming majority is invested outside of Canada. Fourth, the plan has thoroughly embraced the ESG doctrine (environment, social, governance).

Canadian pension funds shouldn’t be involved in social engineering, especially abroad. It should be used domestically in ways that put Canadians to work.

8. Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs has long been a stepping stone for bankers to eventually land positions in the U.S. Government. Indeed, many such people have ended up in the Treasury Department, under both Democrat and Republican Administrations. It’s too extensive to properly list here.

Another ex-Goldman employee is Mark Carney. He formerly headed both the Bank of Canada, and the Bank of England. He is now in charge of the UN Climate Action Finance, and has openly threatened to bankrupt firms that don’t play along with the climate change agenda.

9. La Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec

Quebec is not part of the Canada Pension Plan, and instead, operate their own version of it. Both are pumping money into the eco-agenda. It seems that not much is really that different.

10. Mastercard

Some of the important things were included in an earlier piece. This is still relevant even now. Mastercard has been involved in facilitating mass migration from the 3rd World to the 1st. As a major payment processor, they stand to make enormous amounts of money from increasing their customer base. As cashless societies and digital currencies become more of a reality, credit card companies stand to benefit. They have also used their influence to cause significant financial headaches to people and organizations that don’t ideologically align.

11. Ontario Teachers Pension Plan

Mark [Weissman] is a Senior Managing Director at BlackRock, Global Head of Active Equities, Chairman of its Alternatives business, and Chairman of BlackRock’s Global Investment Committee. He also serves on BlackRock’s Global Executive Committee. Prior to joining BlackRock in 2016, Mark was President & CEO of the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB). Mark joined CPPIB in June, 2005 as the organization’s Senior Vice-President, Private Investments. He was later named Executive Vice-President, Investments, responsible for managing all of the investment activities of CPPIB. He was named President & CEO in 2012. Prior to joining the CPPIB, Mark was responsible for the private equity fund and co-investment program at the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan. Previously, Mark was an officer with Harrowston Inc., a publicly traded Canadian merchant bank and a lawyer with Sullivan & Cromwell, practicing in New York and Paris. He also served as a law clerk to Madam Justice Beverley McLachlin at the Supreme Court of Canada.

Mark Weissman is a managing Director at Blackrock. He also used to work for both the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan, and the CPPIB.

Bill Chinery is currently a Director at OTPP, and until 2013, he was the CEO of Blackrock Asset Management.

Jo Taylor, the President and CEO of the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan, is featured prominently by the World Economic Forum. Just a few days ago, he penned an article for WEF, promoting the “net zero” carbon agenda. OTPP has fully embraced the climate agenda, and is pouring more of members’ money into it.

The OTPP seems to support what’s going on with this “pandemic”. Seems that it filters down to the schools, and to classrooms themselves. And why are schools so willing to use remote learning? Could be partly because Zoom is also a partner with the World Economic Forum.

12. Walmart

This was addressed earlier, but Walmart has actually done quite well lately. It certainly helps that their small business competitors in places like Ontario have been all but crushed. It seems that the rampant lobbying has paid for itself, many times over.

Bruce Hartley and William Pristanski are certainly busy.

13. Some Thoughts On The Matter

These connections are nowhere near the entire story. However, a deep dive needs to be done into the various pension funds and asset management companies who are now fully aligned with the climate change agenda, and with the Great Reset.

Corporations venturing into new areas isn’t anything new, and isn’t (on its own) any reason to be alarmed. However, when everyone seems to be on board with the same things, it does raise the concerns about collusion.

Back to the initial photo: the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario supports forcing kindergarten students to wear masks. Most people would consider this to be child abuse. Could it be out of concern for the students? Or, is ETFO acting on behalf of a much, MUCH larger agenda?

These aren’t just partners making a profit. They are helping to prop up and promote the World Economic Forum, and their agenda. WEF openly supported — and facilitated — lockdowns and shutting down of society in order to crash economies globally. Now, the idea is to “build back better”.

IBC #11(B): World Economic Forum Partnering With Major Banks, Pension Funds

This may be nothing, but should we be worried that the World Economic Forum has partnered with the banking industry, asset management groups, pharmaceutical companies, and other major corporations?

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.
