To be kind and respectful of our (the people) saving and investments, through personal experience, I would not put your trust in the Royal Bank of Canada but don’t take my word for it.
When you invest your money in an RRSP with your bank, (RBC) they use your money to invest in a wide range of companies which operate all over the world.
Do you know if your bank (RBC) supports human rights through its investments?
Your bank (RBC) has more than just a duty to you to be financially responsible with your investment: it has a responsibility to ensure that the projects it finances with your money do not contribute to human rights violations.
(Foot note: pay attention “YOUR Money”)
Many of Canada’s largest banks (RBC) have human rights or social and environmental policies in place – but are their investments consistent with their policies?
(Foot note: Since when do having human rights or social and environmental policies in place mean anything to corporations?)
Make sure your bank (RBC) invests in line with your values and lives up to its commitments to human rights!
(Foot note “Human Rights”)
Even if you don’t bank at a major Canadian bank, (RBC) you can still have your voice heard by writing to the Canada Pension Plan (CPP). All working Canadians (outside of Quebec) over the age of 18 have a portion of their salary deducted for CPP retirement savings. Urge CPP’s Investment Board to do more to respect human rights.
Select your bank (RBC) to view and send Amnesty International’s message about human rights to your bank and add your own personal comment >>>>
This my friends is the politics of the future when big corporations rule! Put a stop to them now while you have the chance because remember, it’s your world now.
