A well-known Canadian anti-masker believes he's put the leader of the Republican Party of Canada in control of the Canadian banking system after copyrighting the name of government legislation.
On Tuesday, Chris Saccoccia, a popular conspiracy theorist and anti-masker, took to Instagram from the couch of his friend Rob Carbone, the leader of the Republican Party of Canada (not related to the other Republican Party), to show his 185,000 followers a document the pair received in the mail.
“This document right here shows the registration of the Canadian Infrastructure Bank (CIB), which controls all the banks in Canada,” Saccoccia says incorrectly, as the CIB is, in fact, a Crown corporation tasked with financially assisting public-private infrastructure projects. “It shows Justin Trudeau signing off on the man who is in charge of all these banks: Mr. Rob Carbone,” Saccoccia says.
Saccoccia goes on to say that Carbone plans on making him Canada’s minister of finance.
The document he’s brandishing shows that Carbone had copyrighted the term “Canada Infrastructure Bank Act (S.C. 2017, c. 20, s. 403),” which is the title for the act that established the Canada Infrastructure Bank. According to Canada’s Copyright Register, the title is legally held by Carbone.
