Conservative Budget Bail-in Regime May Allow Banks to Confiscate Customer's Deposits

by Dr McVety

On March 21st, 2013, Prime Minister Stephen Harper had his Finance Minister Jim Flaherty present their 2013 Budget that included a "Bail-In Regime" on page 145. "The clause will allow banks to convert liabilities into capital in times of need". The recent events in Cyprus, coupled with the G20 agreement in Mexico City-2012, suggest that this so called bail-in scheme may be used to plunder the savings of Canadians.

Reject Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown's Promises to Liberalize the Federal Conservative Party

On behalf of the now 148,000 members of the Institute for Canadian Values and conservative thinking Canadians we ask delegates to reject Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown's Promises to Liberalize the Federal Conservative Party.

Canadians are sick and tired of politicians saying one thing and doing the opposite. After receiving support of conservative voters so many leaders betray their supporters and adopt liberal policies. We are concerned that some may make this happen to the Conservative Party.

Trudeau's Bail-In Now Law to Allow Banks to Confiscate Your Deposits

On June 22, 2016 Bill C-15 became law along with its controversial "Bail-In Regime". In the crash of 2008 governments "bailed out" banks with billions of dollars. The next time around banks will be permitted to seize your deposits and exchange them for shares, shares in a failed bank.

Some say that Canadian banks are so strong Canadians don't have to worry. But the experts say "Canada is in Serious Trouble". DBRS, Moody's and Standard and Poors all have downgraded Canadian banks to a "negative" outlook. The Bank of Canada says our housing market is 30% overvalued, Deutsche Bank says 63% and CMHC says 35%. With average house prices now over $1.3 million in Toronto and Vancouver, a crash appears imminent.
