4. As a criteria for joining the G7

Canada was told by the IMF and World bank to stop issuing its own currency through the Bank of Canada, and instead borrow the money from commercial banks. As a result, since 1975 our national debt has exploded.

We still have the bank of Canada, but no politician has the guts or desire to start issuing currency again, which could fund federal infrastructure projects and initiatives at next to zero interest.

The cost of admission to the global elite club is having bankers write your laws. (And multinationals write your trade deals too)
