Piggy Bank$ doesn't like what the Bank of Montreal is pushing at the people of the street and the television comforted. In their bus shelter ads and TV spots, the Bank of Montreal uses the faces and lives of the poor to sell grotesque images of themselves as the saviour of a people left out of the big money grab. In their million dollar record profits, banks have been capitalising on poverty as they continue their fascist control of the national economy without any care for the crime of 'usury' they commit daily on the working poor. Piggy Bank$ inserts the faces of resistance speaking their own information to people thinking twice about investing in the oppressor.
