Banking Government changing the game in Canada???
On November 9, the Canadian government amended rules for “non-mailable items” and snuck into those rules is a prohibition against mailing “. . . gold bullion, gold dust and non-manufactured precious metals . . .”
Precious metals are now a prohibited item and can be seized if mailed.
Worse, anyone found violating the non-mailable guidelines can be charged with an Indictable offense and may be IMPRISONED for up to five years. What’s mind-boggling about this is that Canada Post is a Crown Corporation owned by the government. Yet ANOTHER crown corporation, the Canada Mint, SELLS Silver, Gold, Platinum, Palladium Bullion (i.e. non-manufactured precious metals) and quite often Canadians can actually BUY that bullion . . . at Canada Post Offices!
So the government of Canada has now:
Now if you want gold or any other kind of mineral, you’ll have to go and get it…and then how much will it be to get it out of the country??? Another way for government to make a dollar being the third party, or can Canada see a future currency backed by gold???
