Canadian Facisti
They Are Out for the New Deal!
1. The Canadian Facisti form one Nationalist organization, pledged to loyal service of King and
Country, but not to partizan politicians or to the profiteers and money-changers who are now strangling
the industrial life of Canada by their power of manipulating national credit for private profit; thus
making life hard for all but a privileged few.
2. The Canadian Facisti will be directed by a Council of Twelve, chosen from among its most
able members. The personnel of the Council is subject to change at any time by a majority vote of
the Council whenever considered in the interest of the National Cause. All Facisti affairs will Deaa-
ministered along disciplined lines, having an eye first of all to efficiency.
3. The Canadian Facisti will work in the spirit of ALL FOR ALL, and will base their activities
on the principle that PUBLIC WELFARE IS THE SUPREME LAW.
4. The Canadan Facisti stand for NATIONALIZATION OF BANKING and the HANDLING
OF NATIONAL CREDIT; and also for the NATIONALIZATION OF INSURANCE.
5. The Canadian Facisti advocate reducing interest to three per cent, on all public bonds, and also
advocate a moratorium on payment of principal sums due on such bonds, whether held by domestic or
foreign money-lenders, until better economic conditions have been firmly established in Canada, and
after that, the taking of such action as regards deferred payment on such bonds as may be considered
just.
6. The Canadian Facisti aim to gain power in both Dominion and Provincial Parliaments, and their
first objective will be to so utilize national credit that all unemployed may be put to work in developing the Natural Resources of Canada.    One concrete  plan  for  doing  this  by  issue  of  Provincial
/^ Promissory Notes, based on Crown Lands and redeemable without ^interest in Canadian currency or
t      improved lands, is being submitted for public consideration in the||liape of specimen notes now being
I     improved lands, is being submitted tor public consideration in the^h
f   circulated. jflj
7.    The Canadian Facisti declare their ALLEGIANCE TO THEHS
SPIRIT OF DEMOCRACY. They
would only tolerate a dictator in an emergency such as confronted the United States when President
Roosevelt assumed dictatorial powers for a new deal and an honest deal for all the people, regardless
of class or calling or race or religion. But the Canadian Facisti are prepared to take strong measures
to prevent the establishment or the continuance of a BANKERS' DICTATORSHIP OVER CANADA.
The Canadian Facisti have plans for the complete reconstruction of the economic and political conditions at present prevailing in Canada.
KEEP THIS STATEMENT AND LOOK FOR MORE TO FOLLOW.
All who put national welfare before party welfare are invited to join in the work. The Canadian
Facisti want no mere opportunists or weaklings in their ranks, but will welcome all who join to do their
bit FOR THE NEW DEAL.
Issued from Facisti Headquarters, Lumbermen's Building, Pender and Richards Sts., Vancouver, B.C.
April 24th, 1933. BY THE COUNCIL.
