Bank of Canada takes to Twitter to set the record straight on ‘printing money’ allegation, August 31
The Bank of Canada has been forced to come out and explain on Twitter its role in trying to manage and control inflation in Canada, a fire that burns in economies around the world.
The reason they turned to social media was to fight misinformation that needed to be corrected. Much of this misinformation comes primarily from one source, and that is Pierre Poilievre.
The Conservative leadership candidate threatened to fire the head of the Bank of Canada if he became prime minister, knowing full well that was not possible.
He claimed that the BOC is printing money, and it is not.
This is not misinformation, this is plain and simple lying.
