Here’s monetary reformer Bill Still on an important monetary court case victory in Canada by COMER (the Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform), concerning the power of the federal and provincial governments to borrow money from the Bank of Canada interest-free (or effectively interest-free, by the federal government receiving the Bank’s profits).

My comment:

Great news, indeed, and very important, since cases like this are usually thrown out due to standing issues, with the bogus claim by judges that the petitioners aren’t eligible to have their case heard due to reasons like not being directly affected, etc.

And unlike a direct constitutional challenge, they are actually pointing to a statute, which is very important, since the court can’t say that it’s just the petitioners’ interpretation of the constitution, but it’s right there as active law because unfortunately these judges and lawyers have been trained to treat statutes more seriously than plain-meaning interpretations of the Constitution itself.

What I do wonder is how they can force the government to get loans from the Bank of Canada, and also how they can be made interest-free, since the provision just mentions loans, but not the interest rate, and of course the banksters will not want them to be interest-free.

But there is a nice way that the loans become effectively interest-free if the federal government does the borrowing, since the government is the sole shareholder of the Bank, and all profits return to the government.

Sandra Day O'ConnorIn her March 5, 2013 appearance on Charlie Rose, she said in reference to her “swing vote” capacity on the Court (at 9:29):

The Court was divided in such a way that a single vote could turn it from an affirm to a reverse.

Except that Justices and judges don’t cast votes — they render legal opinions — that is, unless she’s referring to their effective behaviour these days, in casting political votes on legal cases, such as Bush v. Gore (2000) and Roe v. Wade (1973), which is completely contrary to the U.S. system of separation of powers.
