Out of the Mouths of Babes--Comes the Most Egregious Bilge

I was directed to the video below by this blurb in a freebie rag that just landed on my doorstep:
The GOOD: Let's hear it for 12-year-old Victoria Grant, an Ontario girl who tore a strip off of the Bank of Canada and the federal government in a a polished six-minute speech that outlines how the government and banks have, according to Grant, "colluded to financially enslave the people of Canada." The speech, on YouTube, was made public at a public banking conference in Philadelphia, but close to 400,000and counting have already checked out the speech on YouTube. Is Victoria the new voice of the 99 per cent?
Dunno about that. She sounds like a Briquette DePape in training to me. I do find it odd of this rag to tout such errant nonsense (little Miss Vicky has obviously mistaken Canadian banks, which are as sound as it gets, with ones in the U.S.) since it flogs expensive stuff that the 99 per cent would likely find unaffordable.

Anyhoo, here's the video:
