(LifeSiteNews) — Canadians heralded the importance of cash and the dangers of a digital-only financial system after one of the country’s largest telecommunications providers, Rogers, crashed on Friday leaving millions of Canadians without cellphone service, internet or the ability to use debit machines.
“The countrywide outage of the Interac [debit] network shows that we cannot and should not move to an entirely cashless society,” wrote People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier on social media Friday. “[E]ven less one where all transactions are conducted with CBDCs (Central bank digital currencies) and controlled by central banks, as the globalists would have it.”

“Cash is king,” multiple users replied.
“Bingo, no cashless society ever,” another user chimed in.

Independent journalists also took advantage of the Rogers and Interac outage, using the event as an opportunity to implore Canadians to consider the implications of moving into a digitally-reliant system.
“Now, imagine a society with a fully centralized CBDC, where cash has been completely eliminated. Imagine a Rogers-style outage, except this time over the entire economy, and with no cash backup,” described independent writer and Campaign Fellow for the National Citizens Coalition Spencer Fernando.
“And, considering that the government is almost certainly more incompetent than Rogers, just imagine how bad things could get. A CBDC would thus bring together anti-freedom state centralization, and government incompetence,” Fernando added.

UPDATE: The farmers' protests are spreading

Protests led by thousands of farmers have broken out across the Netherlands, and they're now spreading to Italy, Germany and Poland - this is a fightback against not just environmental regulations and the resulting inflation, but also the elites' Great Reset agenda.
While the demonstrations themselves have been overwhelmingly free from violence on the affected farmers' part, the response to them has been anything but: Earlier this week, Dutch police opened fire on a 16-year-old tractor driver during a protest in Heerenveen.
While -- thank God -- this unfortunate incident did not result in any deaths or injuries, a formal investigation is still forthcoming, and farmers and concerned citizens now know, without question, what measures could be pursued in order to silence opposition to backers of the international Great Reset, which could spell doom for the livelihood of farmers everywhere.
That's why we're asking you to SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of farmers across world against intrusive, overreaching policies of globalist organizations and political leaders who seek to prioritize their own extreme environmental ideology over the ability for everyday farmers to earn a living and provide for their families and communities.
HAPPENING NOW: Farmers who learned from Canadian Freedom Protesters are currently blockading the Netherlands/Germany border with tractors to protest the WEF climate change policies of their government. pic.twitter.com/I7UJTusAZT— Keean Bexte 🇳🇱 (@TheRealKeean) June 30, 2022
Of course, these kinds of extreme environmental policies are not only a threat to the livelihoods of farmers in the Netherlands, or just the nations that comprise the European Union, for that matter: These regulations most certainly can (and inevitably will) make their way to every corner of our world, including countries like YOURS.
In the Netherlands, specifically, lawmakers recently approved legislative proposals to significantly decrease greenhouse emissions by the end of the decade, most notably ammonia and nitrogen oxide, which are common in farming.
This plan, as championed by Christianne van der Wal, the Dutch Minister for Nature and Nitrogen Policy since January, seeks to exceed the globalist EU's agreement among Member States to reduce greenhouse emissions as a means to combat climate change by at least 40% by the year 2030, replacing the desired percentage with an even loftier 55%.
As a result, it would seem almost inevitable that thousands of farms could find themselves in jeopardy within the coming years, but Dutch farmers have no plans to stand down; in fact, this embrace of EU and World Economic Forum (WEF)-style environmental demands is the primary force behind the ongoing protests by as many as 40,000 farmers, who, in response, have taken their tractors to highways across the Netherlands, making an unmistakable statement of resistance reminiscent of that of the Canadian Freedom Convoy truckers in order to protect their livelihoods.
Similar protests have also broken among farmers in Italy, as you can see here:

Such policies are a clear tenet of the Great Reset, pushed by globalist entities around the world like the World Economic Forum. Look no further than the WEF's own "Net Zero Challenge," which seeks to coerce participants into cutting all greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050, and will inevitably threaten countless jobs and livelihoods in the process.
Let there be no doubt: these extreme environmental policies and transgressions against working people cannot be expected to stop any time soon.
That's why we must take this opportunity to make our voices heard -- whether you're a farmer, yourself; work in an industry that would be negatively affected by such policies; or simply support the hardworking men and women in your country and others who wish to maintain the freedom to provide for their families without excessive government and globalist interference.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of Dutch farmers, and farmers and workers across the world, whose livelihoods can and eventually will be harmed by the extreme environmental demands of globalist entities like the EU and WEF seeking to implement the Great Reset.

The fear that an exclusively digital financial landscape could become a reality in Canada is not unfounded, as the country’s central bank, the Bank of Canada, has publicly revealed they are currently developing a CBDC.
According to the BoC’s website, “We are building the capability to issue a digital version of the Canadian dollar — known as a central bank digital currency (CBDC) — that Canadians can trust and rely on so we can be ready should the need arise. Currently, we do not have plans to issue a digital currency. Ultimately, Parliament and the Government of Canada will determine if or when to issue a CBDC.”
Indicating that a CBDC may one day become the sole method of transaction, the BoC adds, “The day may come when Canadians can no longer readily use cash or when an alternative private digital currency becomes widely adopted. That might be the tipping point when a CBDC could be needed.”
According to LifeSiteNews’ David James, “We live in an era of hyper-transactionalism whereby far more of our daily activities than ever before are subject to monetary exchanges. Most of us are now bound to the globalised monetary system. How it evolves is not just a technical matter; it is about how ultimate power will be exerted.”
“To stop control being exclusively in the hands of political and bureaucratic overlords, the best way out is to use cash. If the Canadian truckers get support in the form of paper currency, the despots can do nothing about it.”
