I have long been an advocate of the Co-operative movement. I also believe that many Canadians would be receptive to strengthen this movement when they become aware of its advantages.
The banking industry has failed citizens in so many ways. Witness the mess the financial system is in at this time. Not only have the perpetrators not been bought to justice, but all evidence suggests that we may be looking at another crisis. This must stop. Our hard-earned monies should not be subject to the whims of a group who take advantage of loopholes in our laws. It is always the honest workers who bear the brunt of the lawlessness of Big Business.
I look forward to seeing a much stronger Co-operative movement. It is the only way working people have to protect their finances.
