The Myth Is Canada: the British North America Act, March 29, 1867 is not a Constitution for it constitutes nothing
Nephalem Films: To understand where we are, we must first understand how we got here... Deep research has unearthed key events, which have both created and hidden the truth of the myth that is Canada.
Event: From the 1700s into the next century, England and France were tense partners representing both Upper and Lower Canada. General Wolfe's death in the final battle on the Plains of Abraham in 1759, secured victory for England, the prize ultimately known as, 'Canada'. The Treaty of Paris joined the formerly British controlled Upper Canada with France's Lower Canada into the French legal entity - a Corporation Sole, the 'Province of Quebec'. The amalgamation process from 1759 through 1763 seated the first British Governor General within that Corporation Sole, which in 1787 amalgamated all of 'Canada' enabling Britain to seat a Governor General to rule over the their Colonies known then as: the 'Province of Canada' and New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
For 80 years between 1787 and 1867, the British placed many Governors General into the Corporation Sole. Issuing Letters Patent, the British Monarchy thereby proclaimed that Governor Generals held the 'power' to create and control the government of Canada, as a British Colony.
Federal budget reaction: Quebecor criticizes federal government's lack of action and duplicity on tax fairness
MONTRÉAL, Feb. 27, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - Quebecor responded to the federal budget tabled today by Finance Minister Bill Morneau with disappointment at the lack of action on tax fairness. "Despite the urging of all social, economic and cultural actors in Québec, the government has again chosen to turn its back on our businesses and court foreign online giants instead," commented Pierre Karl Péladeau, President and CEO of Quebecor.
OTTAWA, Feb. 27, 2018 /CNW/ - The 2018 federal budget is not aimed at benefiting working Canadians or retirees, despite the Liberal government's claim that the budget "puts people first."
"The finance minister says he will seek 'feedback' from Canadian pensioners and take an 'evidence-based' approach to retirement security. What more evidence does he need than the thousands of retirees from companies like Stelco and Sears, whose deferred wages were stolen by creditors through archaic laws protecting companies facing restructuring or bankruptcy?" said Ken Neumann, United Steelworkers (USW) National Director.
OTTAWA, Feb. 27, 2018 /CNW/ - The 2018 federal budget has blocked gender equality by failing to increase spending on early learning and child care, says Canada's national child care advocacy group.
"We are astounded that Finance Minister Bill Morneau has chosen to ignore the solid evidence that lack of access to affordable child care is the biggest barrier to women's equal participation in the paid labour force," said Morna Ballantyne, Executive Director of Child Care Now (formerly the Child Care Advocacy Association of Canada).
Child Care Now had called for a federal allocation to early learning and child care of $1 billion for 2018-19, including the money already allocated in the 2017 budget.
