Canadian MP Chrystia Freeland is in a conflict of interest. While serving as a member of Parliament Chrystia Freeland became and continues to be an active member of the Board of Trustees for Germany’s proxy the World Economic Forum (WEF).
An apparent conflict of interest exists when there is a reasonable apprehension, which reasonably well-informed persons could properly have, that a conflict of interest exists.
As of July 26, 2023 the World Economic Forum’s website still lists Chrystia Freeland as an active member of WEF’s Board of Trustees.
“She is a member of the Forum’s Board of Trustees.” World Economic Forum
MP Chrystia Freeland has been blatantly violating Canada’s federal law, the Conflict of Interest Act, since January 2019.
“Davos-Klosters, Switzerland, 25 January 2019 – The World Economic Forum announces that Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada, … join its Board of Trustees.” …
“The Board of Trustees serves as the guardian of the World Economic Forum’s mission and values”
Similar to a board of directors, board of trustees play a strong role in governance, tasked with strategic planning and providing oversight and accountability for the organization. … The board of trustees’ primary responsibility is to uphold their fiduciary duties.
MP Chrystia Freeland becoming and continuing to serve as an active member of the World Economic Forum’s Board of Trustees isn’t just a conflict of interest offence her actions is a criminal offence – Breach of trust by public officer.
Regardless of whether specific rules of government ethics have been adopted, public officials have a broad fiduciary duty to carry out their responsibilities in a manner that is faithful to the public trust that has been reposed in them.
All MPs have a fiduciary duty to represent the interests of their constituents, not a foreign government or its proxy, the World Economic Forum.
The House of Commons states:
“The obligation members have to represent the interests of their constituents is truly at the heart of the mandate of a member of parliament. Without constituents to represent there would be no role for MPs to play in our current system of government, there would be no need for an oath of office, there would be no system of representative democracy to uphold, there would be no need for parties to effect change or safeguard the status quo. The obligations members have flow from the power they gain from the citizenry.”
Even if no ethics code has been adopted, or if no code provision is on point, public officials must act in a manner that comports with their common law fiduciary duty obligations.
Breach of trust by public officer
122 Every official who, in connection with the duties of their office, commits fraud or a breach of trust, whether or not the fraud or breach of trust would be an offence if it were committed in relation to a private person, is guilty of
(a) an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term of not more than five years; or
(b) an offence punishable on summary conviction.
A “breach of trust” can include “any breach of the appropriate standard of responsibility and conduct demanded of the accused by the nature of his office as a senior civil servant of the Crown.”
Chrystia Freeland becoming and continuing to serve as an active member of the Board of Trustees for the World Economic Forum, is contrary to the fiduciary duties imposed upon her as a member of Parliament (MP).
MP Chrystia Freeland being Canada’s Minister of Finance and an active Board of Trustees member for Germany’s proxy is defined by Canada’s criminal code as a Criminal breach of trust:
336 Every one who, being a trustee of anything for the use or benefit, whether in whole or in part, of another person, or for a public or charitable purpose, converts, with intent to defraud and in contravention of his trust, that thing or any part of it to a use that is not authorized by the trust is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding fourteen years.
Reasonable suspicion MP Chrystia Freeland is using her office pursuant to or in furtherance of the World Economic Forum’s missions.
One of the board of trustees’ primary responsibilities is to uphold the fiduciary duty to protect all of the organization’s assets and funds in trust. The overarching fiduciary duty includes the duties of care, obedience, and loyalty, which means that a trustee must place the organization’s interests above their own when making decisions on behalf of the organization.
The board of trustees has a fiduciary responsibility to manage the organization’s funds in the best interest of all stakeholders. Managing WEF’s funds includes obtaining funding for the World Economic Forum.
Chrystia Freeland attended the 2020 World Economic Forum in January of 2020 as a Board of Trustee member. Coincidentally in January of 2020 the Trudeau government made a very large transfer of funds – transfered $3.6 billion as a US$556.7 million cross-currency swap and a US$3 billion Global bond.
Government of Canada’s financial reports – “Monthly Official International Reserves” provides compelling evidence that Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland committed the offence of Criminal breach of trust by misappropriating $3.6 billion for the benefit of Germany’s proxy the World Economic Forum.
“During January, Canada issued a 5-year US$3 billion global bond” Official International Reserves – February 5, 2020
The Government of Canada website and the World Economic Forum provides the most compelling evidence to support the assertion that Chrystia Freeland didn’t attend the 2020 World Economic Forum to represent Canada.
She wasn’t on the list of political leaders taking part in the 2020 World Economic Forum. She attended as a World Economic Forum Board of Trustees member. Chrystia Freeland no doubt billed the Canadian people for her flights to and from Switzerland and for her luxurious accommodations.
Chrystia Freeland attended the World Economic Forum Annual meeting in January of this year. The Chrystia Freeland and WEF meetings were “Closed to media”. Means Chrystia Freeland’s meetings with the World Economic Forum are clandestine.
Purpose of the World Economic Forum’s annual meetings:
Influencing global agendas & decision making, lobbying for public-private cooperation.
Canadian Security Intelligence Service Act defines the World Economic Forum’s influencing activities as threats to the security of Canada.
threats to the security of Canada means:
(b) foreign influenced activities within or relating to Canada that are detrimental to the interests of Canada and are clandestine or deceptive or involve a threat to any person,
Broadly speaking, foreign interference includes attempts to covertly influence, intimidate, manipulate, interfere, corrupt or discredit individuals, organizations and governments to further the interests of a foreign country.
The World Economic Forum is a proxy for the German government. WEF and it’s founder and Board of Trustees furthers the interests of Germany.
