SCOTT YEE ANNOUNCES HIS BID FOR THE LEADERSHIP OF THE LIBERAL PARTY OF CANADA
VANCOUVER - 29 year old Scott Yee announces his plans to seek the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada, with his top 20 campaign ideas that Yee says will transform Canada forever.
One of Yee's top priorities is Monetary & Taxation Reform. Yee wants to end the debt-based monetary system, which makes up 95% of the Canadian economy, and is created by the banking system through the personal debt of Canadians, and instead increase the % of the money supply created by the government through a population-based system to fund all levels of government, therefore eliminating the taxation system.
As this would pump $816 billion into the Canadian economy, the fractional-reserve system will be reinstated, and the reserve ratio is to be set at the required % to equal $816 billion, therefore currency levels will stay the same.
This means the Government of Canada will no longer have to pay interest to create it's own money, and having a permanent money supply will make government spending recession proof.
Because there will no longer be any sales taxation, the penny, nickel, dime, quarter, and half-dollar will all be eliminated, leaving just the loonie and toonie in circulation.
Yee also wants to create a national housing program by partnering with municipalities. Cities will provide the land, and run the housing program locally. The federal government will provide the funding, and the profits from housing will be shared 50/50.
To see all of Yee's top 20 campaign priorities for the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada, please go to his website.
While Mr. Yee names all the parties that he has belonged to, I think his memory of events may be "selective". He failed to mention that he ran for the Marijuana Party in 2004 in the Danforth. Didn't see that party in the list of the many he's belonged to.
Here's a heads up Mr. Yee - I don't think the use of the Liberal logo is allowed on your leadership page. Just sayin'.
