|Aware | Supportive | Empowered|
Note added Feb. 11, 2022: I need to do more research on this question as government incorporation is different from business incorporation, but there may still be layers of complexity and multiple ownership and control that is hidden. In the meantime, do your own research, too.
If we knew our national, provincial, state, regional, and local governments, under a variety of incorporated names, were owned and controlled by foreign, (mostly mega-corp?) shareholders, would it make a difference to our sense of trust and allegiance? Would it mean that our alleged “authorities,” and all their employees and contractees were just witting and unwitting doppelgangers1 that we had been seduced into thinking were legitimate public service electees, appointees. employees? Would it be worth finding out?
If corporations have shareholders, CEOs, employees, and assets, rather than free peoples, public servants, and geographic recognitions, what is the meaning of our vote? Is it just to choose a front wo/man for the appearance of things? If we the people are not shareholders, what are we? assets? property? naïve dupes?
Let everyone of us find out! Who owns our corporate governments? It may take some time to get confession,2 but here are several questions sent today to two Information and Public Interest departments of the “Alberta government” as I prepare to submit a Freedom of Information request. If tens-of-thousands of us do the same to our governments, they might become aware themselves of their unwitting complicity. “Who knew!” may become the nigh universal cry.
The following questions can serve as a pattern everywhere to prepare for and then make FOI requests for documented proof:
1. When and where was the province of Alberta first incorporated?
2. Is there public, online access to “Alberta government” incorporation documents, shareholder listings, and annual returns? If so, what are the various links?
3. If there is no online access, is there a repository of such documents in Alberta that the public can access?
4. Is or has there been more than one “Alberta government” incorporation using different name configurations? e.g.: Province of Alberta; PROVINCE OF ALBERTA; Government of Alberta; GOVERNMENT OF ALBERTA; Alberta Government; ALBERTA GOVERNMENT; Alberta, Inc.; ALBERTA, INC; Alberta; ALBERTA; etc.?
5. What is the registered situs and date of each incorporation, if there have been several? And where can one find all historical and current corporate entities presenting as the “Alberta government” since (presumably) 1905?
6. Is there a public record of the shareholders (foreign and / or domestic) of extant corporation(s) presenting as the “Alberta government”? If so, where? and if not, why not?
7. Have any corporations presenting as the “Alberta government” (since 1905) been declared insolvent or bankrupt? or are any in the midst of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings?
8. Where can records be found that detail the Funds, Banks, or others fiscal corporations who are the top lenders to corporations presenting as the “Alberta government” and the debt amounts?
9. Will the “Alberta government” create a dataset with detailed information of the above information, both historical and current, so it is freely and publicly available online, with easily accessible, visible links on its website?
In many countries with Freedom of Information Acts, requests can be made at every level of government, even down to the town and county level. How many privately-owned corporations will we find masquerading as government? almost universally unknown to the employees who service them?
And what might awareness achieve? Opportunities for legitimate governance for one. (For offended anarchists, see here.3) For other positives? all those Pharma liability exemptions vanish; as well as all those private-corp-faux-public contracts that pillage Mother Earth; that weaponize life, space, and weather; that tax-fund expenses and privatize profits — yes all those and much more vanish, too, because fraud vitiates contract.
1. A doppelgänger (… literally “double-goer”) is a non-biologically related look-alike or double of a living person sometimes portrayed as a ghostly or paranormal phenomenon and usually seen as a harbinger of bad luck. Other traditions and stories equate a doppelgänger with an evil twin. In modern times, the term twin stranger is occasionally used. … The word “doppelgänger” is often used in a more general and neutral sense, and in slang, to describe any person who physically resembles another person.

2. This is my timeline, so far:
On April 23, 2021 I sent several questions to AlbertaConnects because the Open Gov’t. Program directed me there. AlbertaConnects replied on May 12, 2021, 9:44 AM:
“Your email has been forwarded to the appropriate area for direct response. A representative will be in contact with you shortly.”
It is now December 10, 2021 without contact, thus today’s email request (Dec. 10) of the above 9 questions was sent to two “Alberta government” departments to ascertain if documentation is already publicly available before submitting a Freedom of Information (General Access) Request.
