Occupy Movement Explained - Yes, Even in Canada

Canada's Occupy Protests have as much validity, if not more than the US. Gap between rich and poor growing faster in Canada than in U.S.

Shame on Canada
The disparity between rich and poor is growing faster in Canada than the US, eating up the middle class. BC has the fast growing child poverty rates in the country, while the best paid CEOs earn of 155% more than average wage.

The 1% Hit The Middle Class Hard
"In 2004, the average earnings of the richest 10% of Canada’s families raising children was 82 times that earned by the poorest 10% of Canada’s families. That is approaching triple the ratio of 1976, which was around 31 times. The after-tax income gap has never been this high in at least 30 years, and it has been growing faster than ever since the late 1990s."

58% of Canadians Support the Occupy Movement Source
Statistically the tipping point for knowledge to become general knowledge is only 10%. As the Occupy movement enters it's 3rd month more people become aware of the atrocities our governments endorse on behalf of private gains of a very few.

10 Reasons Why CETA is BAD: Video
Over 80 European and Canadian organizations demand an end to CETA - Canada-EU free-trade talks Source This agreement would reinforce intellectual property rights (IPR) at the expense of food sovereignty and the right to health, jeopardize cultural diversity, weaken social, environmental and health regulations, harm the regulatory powers of state, provincial, municipal and local authorities, uncontrolled liberalization and privatization of services, open public markets in Canada at every level of the government and enabling transnational corporations to sue states if they consider some of their laws as a threat whereas they have in fact been enacted to protect the public interest.

Canada's Banks Got Bailed Out Too

Corporatism is Killing Us
As our world leaders pander to these few corporate tyrants, humanity suffers.
From industrial waste flouride in our water to the GMO foods causing illness, to repressing technology and the cure for disease, our governments are doing the bidding of a few special interests at the cost of our entire planet.

Corporate Tyranny in our Food
Do we want big corporations like Monsanto ruling our food and land? Monsanto already hold a key FDA position in the US. Hundreds of thousands of deaths in India have been attributed to Monsanto. Mutated crops are being found in countries who have rejected the sterile genetically modified round up ready patented crops of Monsanto. The tyranny of corporatism does not end at our oil industry in Canada. Currently Canadian farmers are fighting to stop Harper from destroying their Wheat Board:
Democracy and Freedom of Speech are no longer Canadian Standards
"President of the Canadian Wheat Board stated that a dual marketing system would be "as wrong as it is un-Canadian" and could harm the ability of Western Canadian farmers "to deliver the world-class grain for which we are known." That same month, the Board was faced with a “gag order” from the federal government, which was later found to be unconstitutional by the federal court." Source.

Will this action going to open the floodgates for Monsanto's patented sterile "round up ready" genetically engineered "food" to contaminate everything and make corporate slaves out of all our farmers. They did it in the US and India and will do it here. Entire countries are standing up against this abomination, but our "leader" is corporate shill as they have proven time and time again.
