Canada's Politicized & Paranoid Investment Board (CPPIB)

Below is the first of three incoming emails/phone calls I received from the Canada Politicized & Paranoid Investment Board (CPPIB). Each one escalated to someone higher in the apparatchik at the CPPIB

Why did the CPPIB attempt to stifle CAITI's right of free speech over CPP's income trust losses? So they lost a ton of money from Flaherty’s idiot income trust move. Big deal, what’s a measly $300 million anyway?

I am sure Flaherty did something, maybe in the way of bonuses or something to shut these guys up and have them ultimately play the “heavy” with no avail.

Or maybe Flaherty employed that concept, the term for which I learned from Elizabeth May....job blackmail?

I subsequently learned that the CPPIB was totally paranoid about these trust losses coming to light at the time of the one year anniversary of the great halloween Betrayal. Note the date when they first contacted me:

Good Afternoon,

I would like to speak to someone about your scrolling marquee on your Web site that declares that the Canada Pension Plan has lost $158 billion as a result of Haper’s broken promises.

The only contact information on you Web site is this e-mail address.
