'New, decentralized, bottom-up economy': Poilievre wants to make Canada world's Blockchain capital
National Post: 'Speaking in London, Ont., Poilievre, who is campaigning to become the next federal Conservative leader, said he intended to simplify and streamline rules and taxes to make it easier for Canadians to decide to use cryptocurrency instead of traditional forms of money. He insisted on the importance of decentralizing the power of central banks.
'“A Poilievre government would welcome this new, decentralized, bottom-up economy and allow people to take control of their money from bankers and politicians. It would expand choice and lower the costs of financial products, and create thousands of jobs for engineers, programmers, coders and other entrepreneurs,” read a press release from his announcement.
'If elected prime minister, Poilievre would not only keep cryptocurrency legal in Canada, but would also work with provinces on a voluntary basis “to align rules and definitions across jurisdictions to make it easy for blockchain companies to operate across Canadian jurisdictions at the same time without a cobweb of contradictory rules”.'
