We are witnessing the hardships of peoples throughout the world as they are torn by financial burden and others disenfranchised by politicians trying to maintain the often oppressive status quo. Our own Federal Government is constrained by the huge $570Billion debt (http://www.debtclock.ca/) that costs taxpayers $33.3 billion a year, or almost 14 cents of every tax dollar (Dept. of Finance). Ontario’s debt situation is worse, and almost every single municipality is under increasingly onerous financial burden, often raising taxes on their citizens. Canadians themselves are near the breaking point due to indebtedness to the banking industry.
Local individuals have gathered together to protesting the plight Canadians have found themselves in, by camped in London’s Victoria Park. They are courageous enough to stand up and demand change to our absurd relationship with the financial industry. And with all the upheaval due to poverty, unemployment and debt our Mayor Fontana is fixated on and concerned about an overnight bylaw in our city. With the unsustainably of the path we are treading a stupid by-law is insignificant.
If Canadians had any sense or the foresight, we would all be down in the park protesting the way that we are subjected to live our lives of debt.
