"Once a nation parts with the control of its currency and credit, it matters not who makes the nations laws. Usury, once in control, will wreck any nation. Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most sacred responsibility, all talk of the sovereignty of parliament and of democracy is idle and futile."
- Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King, who nationalized the Bank of Canada in 1938
Although Prime Minister Mackenzie successfully nationalized the Bank of Canada, eventually the bankers worked their way back in and today Canada borrows nearly all of it's money from private institutions.
