I have great news — a victory that you made happen.
Do you remember just before Christmas, when some fatcat Toronto bankster named Richard Nesbitt mocked unemployed Albertans?
He was hosting a panel of economists in Toronto, and he said unemployment in Canada is going great, but another economist said, well, not in Alberta it’s not, and this buffoon, this fat-cat bankster Richard Nesbitt, laughed and said, who cares — it's just Alberta?
Oh, and he said he wanted the video edited, to hide his boorish comment.
Now Richard Nesbitt runs this banking think-tank called the Global Risk Institute.
Well, we looked through their membership — all fellow fat-cats, including Liberal governments giving him cash — but there was this one western-based group that actually maybe cared about Albertans, a bank called Farm Credit Canada. (The chairman is a former Canadian Alliance MP, actually.)
So you and I signed a petition to get Farm Credit Canada to quit their membership in Richard Nesbitt’s club, and punish him in the only way that matters:
Take away his membership fees.
We got more than 6,000 people signing that petition in a week, right over the Christmas holidays.
Then nothing seemed to happen.
But WATCH as I give your some great news we only got through an Access to Information request.
And it’s all because thousands of Canadians like you signed our petition!
