Record Profits

Is anyone else growing rather… impatient(?), cross(?), while the ruling class of corporations, developers, and politicians reap almost unfathomable wealth at the expense of our ability to barely get by and/or keep a roof over our heads? The thought occurs to me that WE outnumber THEM by at least a thousandfold. We have tremendous amounts of power, if we worked together, instead of letting them divide and conquer us. Christ- in Canada we don’t even have to worry about being arrested and summarily executed if every last one of us didn’t show for work and took to the streets. Seriously. It could be the party of a lifetime. These invisible hands have taken everything from us. Maybe… maybe we take it the fuck back?

I'm right there with you girl

However I've tried this b4 and motivation to expansional change so fast was not remotely interesting. How to motivate with non-violent means or threats. Love will take it back trauma has to get it's eviction notice and make that expedited eviction. We all have to face our pain and say lazy greedy, rich and mostly family lines hold us back. Bravo Mam you have impressed me!

You're absolutely right.

There are echoes of the French Revolution rumbling underground and about to burst through the parched, resource-extracted earth. The threshold to change is opening for those who choose to walk through and are committed to doing the collaborative work of dismantling greed. People get ready...

You definitely understand the situation. Imagine if the entire Greater Vancouver Regional District decided not to buy gas for one day. Imagine if we did not shop for anything, in person or online for one day. Our money speaks volumes, and we need to remember that before we just continue playing the game.

Society went all tribalism against a former American president and wanted him out at "all costs." All costs was the social fabric that we had before 2016... we're simply reaping we sewed.

Please add to list:

Chinese CCP fully infiltrated local, municipal, regional, provincial and federal branches of government and every segment of permanent bureaucracy

Wealth from enormous amounts of natural resources and energy reserves left in the ground instead of benefiting Canadians

Zero gold reserves with domestic mines sold off to foreign countries

Huge taxes, horrible services, and poor infrastructure

Head of State is not an elected representative but an appointee of the Queen of England. Senate is a useless scam to reward political insiders

100% dependent on the USA for protection; No military and no armed citizenry.

Canadians celebrate the decay of their country; zero political or culture movement to change course

Enormous wealth controlled by Oligarchs (Desmarais’s, Thomson’s, Richardson’s, etc) who control political parties

Laws protect monopolies (ex: telecom, financial services, etc) at the expense of Canadians

Consistent decline in GDP per capita (as % of the USA per OECD) and consistent increase in debt per capita

Huge and sophisticated organized crime syndicates operate with impunity (Italian mafia, Irish mafia, Chinese mafia, Biker gangs, etc)

Foreigners use real estate to legally launder money; housing unaffordable in most major cities

Big Five Banks pump endless credit into real estate causing debt and affordability crisis; CMHC transfers huge risk from banks to government and incentivizes reckless behaviour

Consistently ranked in the top most expensive countries in the world for mobile and internet connectivity

Canadians have always been walked on, but we're to blame for being so passive and bland. We've mistaken that for being civilized, because we don't want to behave like Americans and the only identity Canadians have, is not being American.

It’s a plan

I was thinking almost the same thing. It’s time for the people to speak up. Like no one orders from Amazon for an entire week, that type of thing. Boycott the big grocery chains for a full week, etc. If enough people did things like that, companies would feel it for sure.

I see all the signs that we're now in the middle of the of the 7 year tribulation and the star alignment with this Feast of Trumpets (starting tomorrow Sept 15 and ending Sept 17) is in the correct position for the rapture to occur.... but if it doesn't happen and I'm still here, I'm totally there with you to give the boot to the pseudo aristocrats and all their armies of zombies and genetically engineered alien abominations they may unleash to suddenly destroy the world.

Too many willing stooges; namely Vancouver homeowners who seriously think they are special humans.

"in Canada we don’t even have to worry about being arrested.....and took to the streets."

Guess you've never heard of the trucker protests?
