MNN. Apr. 29, 2013. The conquest of our resources by a few who impose misery, oppression and indignity is ending. The “Council of Chief Executives” CCCE describes itself as a “not-for-profit, non-partisan organization” of CEOs of Canada’s largest corporations. They are the shadow government devoted to theft and genocide! It controls many trillions in stolen Indigenous assets. Formerly called the “Business Council on National Issues” BCNI, its membership is a Who’s Who of Canadian business and politics. Have a look. They are accountable only to the shareholders that own the Corporation of Canada.
Current CCCE President John Manley was named Time Canada’s “Newsmaker of the Year” in 2001 for crafting cross-border anti-terrorism strategies with the first U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge. Other members are part of the war machine: Air Canada, Bombardier, CN, Deloitte, Encana, GlaxoSmithKline, IBM, KPMG, Royal Bank of Canada, and many other firms at the heart of the Canadian economy on stolen Indigenous land.
Canada is a plutocracy run on bribes and corruption. Paul and Andre Desmarais, co-CEOs of Power Corporation, are called “Canada’s Rockefellers” for their enormous wealth, influence, and political power. They shape, influence and dictate Canadian foreign and domestic policy.
BCNI drafted the 1986 Competition Act:
BCNI approached Andre Ouellette, Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs, with an offer he didn’t refuse. BCNI CEO Thomas D’Aquino had, “…previously decided that Canada needed a new competition act.” D’Aquino spent $1 million to hire a team of 25 lawyers who by 1985, “…had produced a 236-page master plan. Incredibly, it became Canada’s new Competition Act, virtually word for word.”
There were no provisions for class-action lawsuits. Criminal conspiracy was unprosecutable. Criminals were sent to civil courts to be processed.
From 2003 to 2006 the Council launched the secret “Security and Prosperity Partnership,” [North American Union NAU] between US, Canada and Mexico. The “North American Competitiveness Council”, representing the 50 largest North American corporations and including many of the Canadian Council’s members, shaped SPP talks.
The SPP eventually folded. The Council still wants to create a continental security perimeter and free trade zone to enhance their banking and business interests.
The Canadian Council of Chief Executives controls national policy in the interest of the few, and drafts legislation favorable to them.
These secret provisional corporate governments are being revealed for being the shadow government. As we read this now, the shackles are starting to fall. The corporations are going down, as Leonard Cohen sang: “They sentenced me to 20 years of boredom, for trying to change the system from within. I’m coming now, I’m coming to reward them. First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin.”
