bad News

 
_Calgary,_Alberta

With exception of a few Conservative spin doctors like the CTV, National Post, the News in Canada about Conservative Stephen Harper is not that great. So I too  can understand why he in desperation  has to buy media coverage to try to bash the others.  

“Where’s the stimulus Ottawa promised? As stimulus spending sputters, deficit is the only thing that’s growing. Pretty much from the outset, the Conservative government has made it clear that given a choice, it favours politics over policy. ”

 
“Patients put at risk  If anyone in government is worried about cancer and heart patients dying this time, you’d never know it. On the contrary, Stephen Harper’s government has been doing everything possible to mask the growing health emergency. Federal health minister Aglukkaq, for one, has been all but invisible, presumably so she won’t have to explain how little her government has done to prepare for another isotope crisis since the last one in 2007.”

“Flaherty, Harper don’t even know what truth is  , Ottawa Citizen Published: Sunday, May 31, 2009 You can’t believe a word they say. We face a horrendous truth deficit. Finance Minister Jim Flaherty now says the federal government deficit will be $50 billion this year. And it might. But the fact that he said it makes it less, rather than more, believable. Permit me to review the facts, a term here meaning “the long sequence of non-facts that issued forth from the mouths of senior federal politicians.” First, during the campaign Stephen Harper promised us no deficits.  Second, two days after the election he said there wouldn’t be a deficit in the current year — that is, 2008-09 — but he wouldn’t rule out a deficit in 2009-10. Third, 10 days after that, the finance minister told us he couldn’t rule out a deficit in 2008-09. Fourth, in his Nov. 27, 2008, update Flaherty predicted a small surplus for 2008-09 and 2009-10. Fifth, in December, Flaherty said there would be a deficit in 2009-10 but not 2008-09. Sixth, a few days before the January budget, in what the Ottawa Citizen called “an unprecedented move to soften the blow of next week’s federal budget,” a “senior official with the Prime Minister’s Office, who declined to speak on the record” told journalists the deficit would be $34 billion in 2009-10 and $30 billion the year after that.  Seventh, in the January budget the government said there would be a deficit of $1.1 billion in 2008-09, $33.7 billion in 2009-10 and a cumulative $50.1 billion in the next three years.  Eighth, on May 25 they told us the figure for 2009-10 would be more than $33.7 billion, but they wouldn’t say how much until June. Ninth, on May 26 they told us the 2009-10 deficit would be $50 billion and claimed they were telling us to avoid “inaccurate” speculation that might confuse markets. A bit rich given their own record of … what exactly? Are these lies? Perhaps. But at this point I am not willing to give them that much credit. Remember: A man who lies knows what the truth is and deliberately fails to convey it accurately or completely. He does not merely “say the thing that is not;” he knows it is not.  And it is not now possible to state with any degree of conviction that the people just cited knew whether their remarks were accurate when they made them. Or even to maintain plausibly that they cared. From a purely practical point of view, it is hard to quarrel with the government’s behaviour. It is manifestly clear that they can say whatever sounds good, then change their story months, weeks or even a single day later without political consequences. And, psychologically, once you discover that you can utter self-serving fibs and pay no price, the temptation becomes enormous. It is so much easier and more fun to assume an air of solemn responsibility and make oracular declarations as a Very Important Person dealing with Very Important Matters in a Very Important Way than to admit that you have no idea what’s going on. And why not, if there’s no price to pay? “Canada.com/victoriatimescolonist/news/comment/story.html?id=c312fd48-f438-48f0-b649-f521815ad27f

 

And the RCMP is also still getting it’s deserved bad publicty…

 

VICTORIA, B.C. – The B.C. government has ordered RCMP to stop using almost 600 older-model Tasers it has in its arsenal in the province, after tests showed the weapons didn’t always meet specifications.  Solicitor General Rich Coleman has told Mounties to immediately pull all 578 of their M-26 Tasers.  The order comes after independent testing completed last month showed the same models used by municipal police forces, sheriffs and corrections did not meet manufacturer’s specifications 80 per cent of the time.  Of the 128 units that were tested, 102 failed to meet the specifications.  Last year the province ordered 82 stun guns being used by municipal police forces and provincial corrections pulled from service after tests showed them misfiring and now Coleman says the M-26 units can’t be put back into service by Mounties in B.C. until they’re independently tested, repaired and re-tested.  The use of Tasers in B.C. has been under increased scrutiny since the October 2007 death of Robert Dziekanski after he was jolted with an RCMP Taser at Vancouver’s airport.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090601/national/tasers_pulled

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS IN 50 MILLION DOLLARS IN DEFECIT THIS YEAR

CONSERVATIVE Ottawa posts first annual deficit in more than a decade  National Post –’
 

Chris Selley’s Full Pundit: Brother, can you spare 500 billion dimes? National Post – ‎May 28, 2009‎ Jim Flaherty is easily the worst finance minister in Canadian history, 

 

Flaherty says he won’t resign over deficit outrage. Canada.com – ‎May 28, 2009‎ OTTAWA – Finance Minister Jim Flaherty insisted Thursday that Canada is in “good shape” despite news the federal deficit would exceed $50 billion this  

Flaherty fails his own 120-day test: No jobs, no infrastructure, at least $50 billion deficit OTTAWA – Having arrived at Finance Minister Jim Flaherty’s 120-day self-imposed deadline for stimulus spending, the only result the Harper Conservatives can point to is a record deficit of at least $50-billion and stalled stimulus projects throughout the country, Finance Critic John McCallum said today.

Just the Facts: Jim Flaherty’s top 10 mismanagement moments “”I’m comfortable with our projections. I’m staying with our budget projection. We’re on track.” 

- Jim Flaherty on the budget deficit, April 22, 2009 

1. Broken promise on income trusts. By imposing a punitive 31.5 per cent tax on income trusts, the Conservative government raided the hard-earned savings of Canadian seniors. 

2. Record deficits. Minister Flaherty appears incapable of managing Canada’s finances. In September, he said there wouldn’t be a recession. In October, he promised no deficits. In November, he predicted a surplus. In January, he tabled a budget with a $34 billion deficit. Yesterday, it turned into a deficit of at least $50 billion – the largest in Canadian history. 

3. Raised income taxes. The 2006 Conservative Budget legislated an increase in the lowest tax rate to 15.5 per cent as of July 1, 2006, reversing the previous Liberal government’s reduction to the lowest personal income tax rate from 16 per cent to 15 per cent effective January 1, 2005. 

4. Failure to get Building Canada Fund infrastructure spending out the door. In the first year following the launch of the $8.8-billion Building Canada Fund, the Conservative government flowed zero funding to infrastructure projects. As recently as February 2009, officials at Infrastructure Canada admitted that of the $1.5 billion announced in its first two years of budgeted spending, only $80 million has flowed for municipal infrastructure projects across the country – only 5%. 

5. Broken 120-day economic stimulus promise. Minister Flaherty’s January 2009 budget explicitly stated, “Measures to support the economy must begin within the next 120 days to be most effective.” Yet recent media reports confirm that little infrastructure money has flowed, even for projects strictly under federal jurisdiction. 

6. Broken promise on equalization. Minister Flaherty’s 2007 budget broke his government’s promise to Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador that they would honour the Atlantic Accord commitment to leave 100 per cent of benefits from offshore resources exempt from equalization calculations. 

7. Fudging the environmental benefit of the public transit tax credit. Minister Flaherty dedicated $635 million to a public transit tax credit that his government claimed would reduce green house gas emissions by 220,000 per year. Environment Canada amended the figure for expected reductions to an average of 35,000 tonnes per year-about 16 percent of the original estimate. In February 2009, Auditor General Sheila Fraser concluded that the public transit tax credit will have a negligible impact on Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions. She went on to say that it is almost impossible to measure actual greenhouse gas emission reductions attributable to the tax credit, as many factors influence public transit ridership, including the price of gasoline. 

8. Fiscal update led to Parliamentary crisis. Minister Flaherty’s 2008 Fall Economic Statement caused a Parliamentary crisis by proposing zero economic stimulus measures on the eve of the recession, focusing instead on partisan measures and cutting funding for pay equity. Prime Minister Harper was forced to prorogue Parliament to save his job, but not before he nearly sparked a national unity crisis by pitting region against region with his rhetoric in the House of Commons. 

9. Cuts to culture funding. Minister Flaherty cut $45 million of federal culture funding last year, despite the fact that Canada’s culture sector directly contributed $46 billion – 3.8 per cent – to Canada’s GDP in 2007. The cuts affected every sector in the culture industry, be it international touring for performing arts groups, funding for new-media research or independent film production, or financial support for Canadian writers – touching off a Canada-wide backlash among cultural organizations. 

10. Cuts to scientific research. Minister Flaherty cut funding by $148 million in January’s budget to Canada’s three granting councils-the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, Canadian Institutes for Health Research and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. According to Statistics Canada, total federal funding for science and technology in 2008 was $365 million less than in 2005 when adjusted for inflation.

CHARLOTTETOWN – A Conservative member of Prince Edward Island’s legislature has been charged with assault in connection with an incident at a demonstration earlier this month over a controversial immigration program.  The charge against Mike Currie, a longtime member of the house, was filed at the provincial court in Charlottetown today.   Protester Rob MacEachern filed a complaint with Charlottetown police on May 6, alleging he was grabbed in the face and chest during the demonstration that day. MacEachern alleges the incident happened after he asked whether Currie’s wife had benefited from the Provincial Nominee Program.The controversial program, which has been heavily criticized by the province’s auditor general, required prospective immigrants to provide funds for local businesses.MacEachern has been a vocal opponent of the administration of the program for months.http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090529/national/pei_mla_charged

1 – “Veteran Saskatoon police officer charged with impaired driving Mon May 25, 11:27 PM  SASKATOON – A 13-year veteran Saskatoon police officer has been charged with impaired driving. Const. Roy Rodgers was off duty when he was arrested by patrol officers early Sunday morning. It followed a complaint of a man and woman arguing in a vehicle. Saskatoon police Chief Clive Weighill admits he’s disappointed at news of an officer being charged.  But he says the arrest shows the force does not turn a “blind eye” to such allegations. ” Not when there was a witness..
 
Now CLEARLY a cop drunk early Sunday morning, is evidence of an chronic alcoholic COP that did not occur now overnight as well. This BAD  police chief’s spins, OR lies shows to me  rather he HIMSELF was not doing his job properly . But that is typical cop cover-ups, PR ehh?.   

 

  
2 – CRTC chairman says his inaccurate testimony was not deliberate….  Funny but when the average guy lies when giving evidence he is a liar. When a political toady lies (as they often do) its inaccurate? How weird is that?

3 –  CONSERVATIVE STEPHEN HARPER DO NOT CARE TO HELP THE POOR AND NEEDY PERSONS.  Nation’s welfare unimportant to politicians StarPhoenix   Prime Minister Stephen Harper refers to this national standard as an “absurdity” that would be abused by Canadians who would rather sit at home collecting the dole — averaging $330 a week — than work for a living.… According to Quebec pundits, the party is losing support in the province because of a growing belief the government’s ideology clashes with that of most Quebecers. Polls seem to support the hypothesis, considering the Liberals have taken back the federalist support lost during the sponsorship scandal, and seem even to be eating away at PQ support, while the Conservatives in Quebec have dropped below the NDP even as the PM has been using a mix of patronage appointments and targeted spending to win Quebec hearts and minds…. This puts Mr. Harper in a tough position. He has unlimited money to blast the enemy as long as no election is called, but unless he has the time to redefine his opponents and the issues, he may precipitate an election at a time when his support is reaching its nadir.”
 
NOW I HAVE OPENLY, TRUTHFULLY  FOR YEARS RIGHTFULLY HAVE SAID THE CONSERVATIVE STEPHEN HARPER DO NOT CARE TO HELP THE POOR AND NEEDY PERSONS IN CANADA, THIS REFLECTS MY OWN REAL EXPERIENCE WITH THE BAD  CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY ALLIANCE CHURCH OF ALBERTA NOW TOO. I SUPPORT MAKING HELP AVAILABLE TO ALL SUFFERING CANADIANS EQUALLY TOO AND MAKING POSITIVE CHANGES TO THE EI TOO FROM MY OWN PERSONAL PAST EXPERIENCES HERE TOO.
 Transport Minister Julie Boulet is the third minister in the Charest government subject to a “verification” by the chief electoral officer, after suggesting that companies are financing the Quebec Liberal Party. Boulet, like Education Minister Michelle Courchesne and Norman MacMillan, the junior transport minister, said the Quebec Liberal Party does accept financial contributions from companies. Québécois leader Pauline Marois called for an investigation into how the Liberals raise campaign money when she heard the news about Boulet. “One slip of the tongue is okay, two slips is okay, three slips, it starts to get worrisome,” Marois said. “It’s against the law.” Quebec’s 1977 party financing law established the principle that only Quebec voters may give to a political party, setting the maximum contribution at $3,000. That means companies, unions or people living outside the province may not give to Quebec parties. http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Boulet+eyed+electoral+officer/2614662/story.html

CANADA WHERE THERE IS A SEPARATE JUSTICE, TAX SYSTEMS FOR THE RICH AND POWERFUL SUCH AS Bell,  BRIAN MULRONEY, CONRAD BLACK. INCIDENTALLY. THE RCMP CLEARLY FAILED ALSO TO GET ANY OF THESE BAD GUYS TOO.

Cops seem to have it too easy in Canada, they do what they want, they abuse citizens and tend to get away with it too. Too many COPS, persons distort  the LAW. it’s meaning still too.

The specific  Laws are created for a reason and given a certain set of conditions and circumstances.  When the circumstances or situation are not present then the law is basically not applicable. (2 Cor 3:6 KJV)   for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

Stephen Marche says the main question of the Oliphant Inquiry at this point is which of Brian Mulroney’s internal demons drove him into the company of Karl-Heinz Schreiber.. THE LUST OF MONEY THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL.

OTTAWA – Brian Mulroney’s explanation of his financial dealings with businessman Karlheinz Schreiber is filled with “inconsistencies and half-truths” and can’t be believed, the head of a public inquiry was told Wednesday. Richard Auger, the lawyer for Schreiber, used his closing arguments before Justice Jeffrey Oliphant to mount a frontal attack on the credibility of the former Conservative prime minister, contending that his testimony on major points has been unsupported by documentation or independent witnesses. “For the most part we are left with Mr. Mulroney’s word on the key issues in this inquiry,” said Auger. “Mr. Mulroney’s word alone cannot be accepted. . . . Mr. Mulroney’s story lacks every-day common sense.” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090610/national/mulroney_schreiber

In Canada the powerful few SEEM TO  too often to abuse public trust, offices   obviously. Six days of Brian Mulroney testimony  from  a man who rose to Canada’s highest elected office only to plunge to the depths of pocketing suspect cash gave the honest  law-abiding, taxpaying citizens morbid facts about the abuse of the legal, tax system again in Canada.. Brian he destroyed any of our remaining public faith in public officials, and our false   assumption that we all equally share the burden of paying income tax. It would be unwise for you to tuck $225,000 in household safes and a bank deposit box, keep silent about it for six years and then expect to pay taxes on only half. And yet this is what Brian Mulroney admitted to doing and he was wrongfully  given a tax break for doing so as well.” Brian Mulroney paid income taxes on only half of the $225,000 he received in cash from German-Canadian businessman Karlheinz Schreiber, a public inquiry has heard. Next “The most disturbing of those deals – and the one now most likely to trouble Stephen Harper – is the decision to pay Mulroney $2.1 million to settle a lawsuit over the 1995 letter Canada sent to the Swiss about the RCMP Airbus investigation. What the federal government didn’t know when it wrote that cheque was that Mulroney’s relationship with lobbyist Karlheinz Schreiber went well beyond the occasional cup of coffee to three memorably large cash payments.’ Now on top of all that  Mulroney’s legal bill to cost taxpayers $2 M Brian Mulroney’s six days of testimony have left taxpayers on the hook for $2 million in legal fees. Taxpayers will again pay Brian Mulroney’s legal costs. http://www.thestar.com/canada/columnist/article/637371

 >>Bell Canada, with the tacit approval of the Stephen Harper government, is trampling roughshod, over its own customers, including smaller ISPs.  http://www.p2pnet.net/story/22148/comment-page-1#comment-974510
 
TO BE FAIR THE LIBERALS ALSO GO ALONG WITH BAD BELL. I had spoken and asked directly Quebec’s finance minister Monique Forget to deal with bad bell but she was hesitant to and I wondered why till I had next read  that the new head of the Quebec’s pension fund is Michael Sabia, former head of Bell Canada Enterprises, who took over in March of this year.
 
QUEBECERS AND THE Quebec’s pension fund IS NOW IN REAL  TROUBLE,  JUST LOOK AT THE BAD EFFECT THE SAME PERSON SABIA  HAD ON BELL, WHOSE STOCKS, SALES, SERVICES, CUSTOMER SATISFACTION  HAVE GONE DONE DRASTICALLY. I HOPE THEY ARE ALL NOT STUPID ENOUGH TO LET HIM INVEST OUR MONEY INTO BELL AS WELL
  
>”all people such as myself with a Bell telephone line but use a 3rd party ISP for high-speed Internet sue Bell in a class action lawsuit! This is simply based on contract law, I have a Bell home phone line that I pay strictly for local calling  . When I switched from dial-up Internet access many years ago to high-speed, I went with a 3rd party ISP,  and my ISP contacted Bell on my behalf to get my local line connected to Bell’s high-speed line. So then in my next Bell bill under monthly services a new item appeared it said: 1 High Speed-up to 4.0 Mbps and there was no extra charge for this service!” .. Just because Bell connects its residential customers to its high-speed service so that these consumers may use 3rd party ISP resellers of Bell’s capacity; does that give Bell any legal right to sift through this private data, set parameters of access to Internet speed based on the type of data being sent/received and set predetermined time frames in order to restrict the flow of data?”
 

Therefore I have a contract with Bell and I can sue them for interfering with my phone line. But why do we need a government and pay taxes if we have to fend ourselves?

Earlier this week,  OPP officers executed a search warrant upon Crown offices at the College Park courts, and Brendan Crawley, a spokesman for the Ontario Attorney-General, confirmed last night that the province has brought in an out-of-province special prosecutor to handle the case.  Charged with nine counts ranging from fraud to obstructing justice to breach of trust is veteran OPP Sergeant Michael Rutigliano, 49, who served as manager of the force’s “court case management” for the Toronto area.

Arrested on May 3, 2007, he was released on bail and scheduled for a court appearance last November, but never showed up.

B.C. premier names new 24-member cabinet. There are nine new faces among the 24 members of the B.C. cabinet named Wednesday afternoon by Premier Gordon Campbell, after his Liberal Party won a third majority in May. Mike de Jong is the new attorney general, as well as government house leader, filling the position vacated by Wally Oppal, who lost to Independent candidate Vicki Huntington in the Delta-South riding after two recounts.  Former West Vancouver police chief Kash Heed a Newcomer takes on the role of solicitor general and public safety minister. .John van Dongen resigned from the position in April following revelations that his driver’s licence had been suspended for speeding. Van Dongen was re-relected on election night. Colin Hansen remains as finance minister but adds deputy premier to his titles.  http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2009/06/10/bc-campbell-cabinet-2009.html

and will Former West Vancouver police chief Kash Heed the new BC solicitor general and public safety minister cover up for his bad Police buddies too? And there are still concerns about Liberal candidate Kash Heed and his former role as West Vancouver police chief and his unexpected retirement from the force less than two years into his contract, “There’s still a lot of anger about a $40,000 severance payout even though he voluntarily quit in February, leaving many unanswered questions about his status on the force,”  to supposedly avoid legal prosecution too. “The cops have a responsibility to follow moral leadership and let me tell you, the cops do not have that here [in Abbotsford] “NDP candidate for Abbotsford South, Bonnie Rai.

 Monday June 15,2009 Canadian Press  VANCOUVER — A judge has decided the inquiry into the death of Robert Dziekanski will be allowed to make findings of misconduct against the four RCMP officers involved. The officers who stunned Dziekanski with a Taser at Vancouver’s airport challenged Commissioner Thomas Braidwood’s authority to make findings of misconduct against them. Braidwood had warned the officers he would consider allegations made at the inquiry — that they acted improperly and then lied to cover up their actions. The officers claimed those allegations amount to criminal offences, which public inquiries can’t do. They also argued that federal police officers are outside the jurisdiction of a provincial inquiry. But Justice Arne Silverman rejected those arguments, which means the inquiry can resume as scheduled this Friday with closing submissions. Now go after the rest of the bad cops now too.

WHY MANY BUSINESSES FAIL

 
bell-internet isp
 
 

 

We also do all know that most persons  still  tend to take an ostrich denial approach to their own faults, shortcomings still..

MANY BUSINESSES FAIL FIRSTLY BECAUSE  THEY LIE..  NEXT OF COURSE BECAUSE OF THE POOR , NEGATIVE WAY THEY SEE, DO TREAT  THE CUSTOMERS, AND THEIR EMPLOYEES AS WELL. So sooner or later they still tend to fail as a direct result, face cutbacks, downsizing, serious changes .. Karma
 
SECONDLY THEY USE A FALSE, POOR , NEGATIVE MANAGEMENT STYLE STILL.. DICTATORSHIP
   
I was really, really surprised as to how many persons lie, are being lied to in life, in churches..
 
A key part of the Canwest Global Communications Corp. media empire has been granted court protection from creditors. Canwest,  a CONTROL FREAK too, controls The National Post newspaper and Global Television AND many of the largest daily papers in Canadian cities, including the Edmonton, Windsor, Ottawa Citizen, the Montreal Gazette, the Vancouver Sun, the Vancouver Province, the Victoria Times-Colonist and the Calgary Herald. Ironically these are some of the most unfriendly newspapers that I also have dealt with now .. SO I AM NOT SURPRISED THEY ARE HAVING FINANCIAL PROBLEMS.
 
CTV Television Inc., Canwest Global Communications and the publicly funded CBC have all blamed the economic downturn, increasing competition and inroads by the Internet for cuts to staff and local programming.  Recent months have seen CTV slash the local news arms of “Canada AM,” gut staff at its A Channel stations and cancel local morning shows in Victoria, London, Ont., Barrie, Ont., and Montreal. Canwest has been grappling with a $4 billion debt and is trying to sell five E! network television stations, while the publicly funded CBC has said a $171-million shortfall is forcing it to eliminate up to 800 jobs. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090522/national/ctv_local_news
 
No one asked me anything about it.. I have not watched these crappy TV stations for a year now, and there is only 2 Canadian TV programs that  I have watched and one was  was “The Listener” and the other was was “The Border”..
 
I heard firsthand one teenager saying to another teenager  , “I cannot trust you, you lie to me all the time” and this next had made me reflect upon the reality that the average person lies 3 times in every ten minutes of conversation, and it also reminded me with my past years of undeniable dealing with Bell related to my internet download problems, they too had  lied to me all the time, by not admitting the truth first that there was a problem, nor next honestly admitting the cause of the problem. It seems that spin doctoring, misleading, lying to others is a very major part of not just the lawyers, used car salesmen, but a regular part of the sales, advertising, corporate way of doing business with consumers these days Canada wide now as well.  

 “Farmers have been involved with selling local product for decades. What’s happening now is that the consumer side is catching on, “and “one of the big challenges to markets was reaching “mid-level or second-tier” consumers, who, studies showed, stayed away, in large part, because of affordability.” Also “locally grown food, in many cases, is also more costly to produce, because Canadian labour and, often, land is worth more than in Brazil or China. Above all, though, local growing conditions for most foods are less productive than elsewhere.”” the cheapest and best the best way is actually to skip the farmers’ market and eat global”. Price conscious consumers reality..

 Even the Canadian Pork  or Beef famers are also lazy and unrealistic persons ehh?  Spin doctor, lie to others , blame others all you want..  but you still will not change the reality.. the price of pork, beef  was too high in a recession, for the consumers are not stupid but price conscious.. as a good realtor knows now too, it is always better to sell more units at a lower price over selling less units  at a higher price.. but if you tell that to the lazy, unrealistic, greedy persons they will hate you.. fire you…

 
When a business’s profitability is severely reducing, dropping, the top  management often fails to admit the truth, the real reasons as to why,  and they also tend to falsely among many other things
- lie some more
- raise their prices to try to try to increase their profitability, making themselves more uncompetitive
- cut back on customer services, clearly making matters even worse
- resort to costly, false, misleading advertisements again
- blame their employees , and have a high employee turnover, making matters worse
- blame other facts for their own management failures,
- really do not provide a positive, competitive  service
- generally fail to replace all of the bad top executive, middle managers with good personnel
 
That includes Loblaw, BeLL, GM, RCMP, Metro, pastors, governments, Real Estate firms, Car dealerships, Newspapers, TV stations, HOSPITALS, Grocery Chains stores, etc.,
 
bad apple
 
 

Reality- When the employees tend to blame the top management solely for all the problems, generally it is too late to do so, one rotten apple has already tended next to make the whole basket rotten.. and that is often why bankruptcy, or being bought out is the only effective solution too.. that includes not only Corporations, but civil and public services, Hospitals too..

Bell throttles internet speeds

 

WHAT SPIN DOCTOR BELL ALSO DOES NOT TELL ALL OF IT’S CUSTOMERS .Canadian cell phone carrier, DAVE Wireless, announced  that it had signed a licensing agreement with Bell Mobility, allowing it to attach wireless transmitters to Bell’s existing cell sites. What most citizens do not realize is that wireless phones are digital based too, operating on Bell’s internet services too  AND IT FURTHER EXPLAINS WHY BELL HAS TO CAP IT INTERNET CUSTOMERS’ USAGES, DOWNLOADS OFTEN TOO, TO MAKE THE ROOM FOR THE WIRELESS PHONES AS WELL . BELL REALLY DOES NOT HAVE EXISTING ADEQUATE CAPACITY FOR BOTH, NOT EVEN FOR THE HIGH SPEED INTERNET SERVICES IN ALL AREAS OF CANADA.

Small ISPs fight ruling that let Bell throttle internet speeds CBC.ca –    CBC News -Small internet service providers are challenging a ruling that gave Bell Canada Inc. the green light to selectively slow down internet speeds for some of their customers.  

Bell_Logo_1

Canada’s internet regulator, the Canada Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, didn’t fully understand the technology involved and made errors in the November 2008 judgment, said an application filed with the commission Thursday by Canadian Association of Internet Providers (CAIP), along with the Consumers’ Association of Canada and a number of other groups,

 >”all people such as myself with a Bell telephone line but use a 3rd party ISP for high-speed Internet sue Bell in a class action lawsuit! This is simply based on contract law, I have a Bell home phone line that I pay strictly for local calling  . When I switched from dial-up Internet access many years ago to high-speed, I went with a 3rd party ISP,  and my ISP contacted Bell on my behalf to get my local line connected to Bell’s high-speed line. So then in my next Bell bill under monthly services a new item appeared it said: 1 High Speed-up to 4.0 Mbps and there was no extra charge for this service!” .. Just because Bell connects its residential customers to its high-speed service so that these consumers may use 3rd party ISP resellers of Bell’s capacity; does that give Bell any legal right to sift through this private data, set parameters of access to Internet speed based on the type of data being sent/received and set predetermined time frames in order to restrict the flow of data?”

Therefore I have a contract with Bell and I can sue them for interfering with my phone line. But why do we need a government and pay taxes if we have to fend ourselves?

The CRTC application alleges multiple errors of fact and law in the decision and points specifically to the CRTC’s lack of a full understanding of the issues raised in the proceeding. CAIP argues that the CRTC specifically launched the larger net neutrality proceeding this summer in order to gain that fuller understanding, but argues that:

A broader proceeding in order to understand the complex issues raised in the CAIP application is a perfectly acceptable and responsible means of developing a thoughtful policy approach and decision on network management. What is entirely unfair and unacceptable, however, is the fact that the Commission rendered Decision 2008-108 without the benefit of a comprehensive understanding of the factual, legal and policy issues at play. In particular, if the Commission did not believe that it had an adequate evidentiary record or did not have a full understanding of the factual and legal issues raised by Bell’s throttling of wholesale GAS services to be able to determine in an unqualified and final manner the issues raised in the CAIP proceeding, then it was procedurally unfair for the Commission to have rendered a decision on CAIP’s application.

Moreover, CAIP highlights a concern raised by many in the net neutrality world – that the CRTC has already decided many of the bigger issues even before the July hearings begin. CAIP notes that:

in effect, the Commission has pre-judged certain factual and legal issues raised in the PN 2008-19 proceeding, thereby narrowing the scope of the Commission’s decision in the PN 2008-19 proceeding even before it is made. As long as Decision 2008-108 stands, the perception that the Commission has pre-judged the outcome of PN 2008-19 on the key issue of the legality of CAP-based throttling pursuant to subsection 27(2) and section 36 of the Act will persist.

The application continues with specific examples of error in fact and law. These include errors in fact on P2P activities and the use of deep packet inspection as well as numerous errors in law, particularly in the way the CRTC interpreted sections 27(2) and 36 of the Telecommunications Act. The CAIP application comes as a surprise given that most of the attention had moved to this summer’s net neutrality hearings and places the CRTC on the defensive just weeks before those hearings are scheduled to take place.

SPECIFIC GROUNDS FOR REVIEW AND VARIANCE 
15. Section 62 of the Act states:
62. The Commission may, on application or on its own motion, review and rescind or vary any decision made by it or re-hear a matter before rendering a decision.

16. In Telecom Public Notice CRTC 98‐6, Guidelines for review and vary applications, 20 March 1998 (“PN 98‐6”), the Commission stated that in order for the Commission to exercise its discretion pursuant to section 62 of the Act, an applicant must demonstrate that there is substantial doubt as to the correctness of the original decision. The Commission then went on to state that substantial doubt as to the correctness of the original decision may arise, for example, due to

(i) An error in law or in fact;
(ii) A fundamental change in circumstances or facts since the decision;
(iii) A failure to consider a basic principle which had been raised in the original proceeding; or
(iv) A new principle which has arisen as a result of the decision.

17. The Applicants submit that there is substantial doubt as to the original correctness of Decision 2008‐108 as a result of the following specific errors of fact and law. The
Commission

(a) Erred in fact in deciding that P2P transmissions take up as much bandwidth as possible and are unique, among all other types of transmissions, in doing so;(b) Erred in fact in stating that in order to identify the application or protocol of telecommunications, Bell need only examine the “header information of the packet;”9
(c) In relation to Bell’s GAS tariff and sections 24 and 25 of the Act, erred in fact and in law
(i) in allowing Bell to apply a different standard relating to fair and proportionate use of its network by the end‐customers of ISPs than the standard that it has applied historically to both ILECs and to the cable companies;
(ii) in considering that Bell’s use of DPI to inspect and treat packets in P2P transmissions differently does not violate the GAS tariff, which defines GAS as a PPPoE or Layer 2 service; and
(iii) in concluding that at the time of the Decision, Bell had no other “practical option that is technologically and economically suitable” but to throttle GAS;
(d) In relation to CAIP’s subsection 27(2) grounds for relief,
(i) Erred in law by narrowing the scope of the proceeding without notice to the parties, such that CAIP’s section 27 arguments were only considered in relation to Bell’s treatment of its own retail Internet access customers;
(ii) Erred in law in failing to consider whether Bell was subjecting GAS to different treatment as compared to all other high‐bandwidth services that Bell offers to itself or to others using the same “shared” network referred to by Bell and the Commission;
(iii) Applied the wrong legal test in determining that subsection 27(2) comports an element of subjective intention or bad faith;
(iv) Erred in law and in fact in considering that the breaches of section 27(2) were justified given that
A. there is no evidence that P2P applications represent a threat to the integrity of wireline ILEC networks;
B. Bell’s throttling measure is at once under inclusive in that it only affects P2P applications and not other bandwidth intensive applications and overinclusive in that it affects both heavy and “non‐heavy” users equally; and
C. Bell’s throttling measure is not proportional and minimally intrusive since there were many other options for Bell to achieve its objective, whether it be the objective of relieving congestion or of controlling the usage of heavy users;
(e) In relation to section 36 of the Act, erred in law and in fact by concluding that:
(i) Bell’s traffic shaping measures “does not involve blocking any telecommunications”;
(ii) file‐sharing applications only involve transmissions of downloadable “files” which require “time for the file to be transmitted before an enduser can access it.”;
(iii) Bell is not controlling the content of the telecommunications that it carries for the public;
(iv) Bell is not influencing the meaning of the telecommunications that it carries for the public; and that
(v) Bell is not influencing the purpose of the telecommunications that it carries for the public;
(f) Did not comply with the requirements of the Policy Direction to state which policy objectives were advanced by its decision and did not give sufficient justification for its decision thereunder;
(g) Erred in law in failing to give due consideration to
(i) The freedom of expression of content providers, Canadian Internet users, and independent ISPs;
(ii) The Canadian telecommunications policy objective of protecting the privacy of telecommunications set out at paragraph 7(i) of the Act;10 and
(iii) The Canadian telecommunications policy objective of promoting maximum reliance on market forces and ensuring efficient and effective regulation as set out at paragraph 7(f) of the Act.

18. In addition to the foregoing errors, there is at least one changed circumstance relating to the options available to Bell to relieve congestion in its network that calls into doubt both the original and continuing correctness of Decision 2008‐108. In particular, as described in Section IV below, it would appear that Bell has standardised Ethernet Layer 2 switches throughout its network in order to relieve congestion in certain areas of its network. This development calls into question the continuing necessity of Bell’s network‐wide throttling of P2P applications as well as raising the issue (if only in the alternative) of whether Bell’s throttling of P2P applications should be time‐limited or subject to any other restrictions.

The filing goes into great detail on each of these points.

I haven’t had the time to really get into it yet, but I will — and I noticed all sorts of facts the CRTC didn’t address, as did users on DSLreports.

For example, mlerner (http://www.dslreports.com/profile/248514) spotted this gem »»»

44. However, the fact that Bell looks at Layer 7 information in order to determine the application software running on the CPE misses a more fundamental point that relates to GAS specifically. GAS is a PPPoE or Layer 2 (Data Layer) service according to Bell GT Item 5410. As such, anything above Layer 2 (Layers 3‐7) constitutes the PPPoE “payload” under GAS. While Bell must possess PPPoE header information in order to provide GAS, there is no need for Bell to examine even the source and destination IP address information of GAS traffic in order to deliver the tariffed service.

This raises a privacy issue when Bell is looking at point of origin and destination, as well as packet payload on customers that aren’t even theirs.

Makes me wonder if the Privacy Commissioner will be dragged into this, as I believe she should be.

The throttle and DPI fight is not over.

Definitely stay tuned…  http://www.p2pnet.net/story/22033

“The present  future development  of iPhone includes multimedia messaging (MMS),  and adding  data tethering to the iPhone, which will turn the device into a wireless modem to connect laptops to 3G networks.
 
“MMS and Tethering – two features that have been readily available on many smartphones for years – are finally making their way to the iPhone. But if you’re in the United States, you won’t be able to use them for at least a few months. Because AT&T, the network with an exclusive lock on the iPhone in the US, couldn’t get it together in time to support them for the iPhone 3.0 software launch. At launch on June 17th, MMS is going to be supported by 29 carriers, and tethering will be supported by 22 of them. So when can we finally expect these stateside? MMS is apparently coming “later this summer”. And tethering? A much more nebulous (and ominous) “later”.

This is ridiculous, plain and simple. AT&T has almost certainly known about Apple’s plans for many months if not years, and was probably involved in determining when these features would be launching in the first place.

AT&T has made it clear many times that it simply doesn’t have the bandwidth to support the millions of new iPhone users that are using their “unlimited” data plans far more than they would on other phones.

Apparently AT&T won’t support the long-awaited addition of MMS upon the iPhone 3GS’s launch. Boy Genius Report explains the situation thusly, [T]he reason it’s not good to go right away is because AT&T has to manually remove all the “Opt Out MMS codes” on each account. Basically, if we were to summarize this, and we’re going out a little bit of a limb, remove the Opt Out MMS code, and MMS will work with the final OS 3.0 build right away. We’ve also just heard that tethering will be 100% locked out at launch, but AT&T’s in the process of putting together a $70/mo unlimited data and tethering plan. SMS and MMS will not be included in that plan, we’re told.”  http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/06/08/att-underscores-how-badly-it-sucks/

Sadly AT&T for a start is not the only carrier that doesn’t have presently  adequate  existing bandwidth to support all of their customers, iPhone users  using  an “unlimited” data plan  and that would now include Rogers and Bell? who are clearly already capping their existing customers and others to over come this serious shortcoming,   and in spite of what they do all  promise now they might have in the future I really rightfully do not believe them.

Our immoral cowards, federal and provincial solicitor generals, justice ministers are all afraid of the crooked cops themselves  and refuse to deal with them likely cause they know they themselves have done much unacceptable wrong doings.

Fire all of the bad cops and their bad supervisors  immediately too..

 I also do rightfully think it is dangerous to simply to leave them all, even the  police alone or even to  take what they and the  police say at face value

I would severely discipline any police  subordinate who broke the rules of engagements, rules of fairness, respect, decency,  and  we all should even seek discipline against also  any  superior who did so too. Why would we allow any police member to get away with now still too? 

Who looks after out for our good welfare, the federal government, provinces?  we do that .. for the others are too busy stuffing their own pockets, having a good time still it seems.

NOT EVERYONE HAS A HIGH REGARD FOR THE courts, justice ministers, politicians, governments, POLICE, RCMP IN CANADA,  Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan, Manitoba,   etc. 
 
Hidden agendas, the world is full of it, many people have hidden agendas, Ministers, politicians, cops  too. Sadly some people they tend  present their own “facts,” but fall short in truthfulness  for they tend to falsely  have a hidden agenda, and often they want to be falsely personally worshipped and live in sin too.
 
In Canada for decades our judges, cops, justice ministers, premiers,  are known to persecute the defenseless victims the most such as traffic ticket violators and not the real criminals..
 
 
  
The whole Police system is unacceptable, farcical, corrupt from top to bottom..
 
” I find it laughable but not unexpected that Sgt. Bruce would pursue economic redress from his employers. His actions in my opinion are a sad reflection on this public service, and should be the poster child for Complete Civilian Oversight of internal police investigation given this situation. However to be fair  let us look at the facts that I have been able to find. In 2005 Const. Lisa Alford after spending the afternoon drinking with her West Vancouver Police Buddies including Staff Sgt Bruce’s son Constable Mike Bruce attempted to drive home while drunk and smashed into another vehicle. Alford, 30, blew readings of .21 and .22 — the legal limit is .08 — and pleaded guilty to drunk driving on Jan. 25. 2007; She lost her licence for 14 months and was fined $600. Despite these facts she was placed forward for promotion, an action later reversed when all the facts of this case were made evident. Const. Lisa Alford was drinking with fellow officers” In the West Vancouver Police Station” before she rear-ended a car and blew nearly three times the legal limit for alcohol. Then West Vancouver Police Department Chief Scott Armstrong said that such get-togethers involving drinking at the station were regular occurrences; In fact, he attended a few himself before banning the practice after Alford’s accident and drunk-driving charge. In 2006, Scott Armstrong was fired as chief for that admission.  In a ridiculous case of poor optics, worse judgment and a fundamental reason why greater oversight into police investigating police must be initiated; Sgt. Doug Bruce (Mike Bruce’s father) and Insp. Bob Fontaine were appointed to head up the complaint investigation into the incident. The final report to the B.C. Police Complaints Commissioner however failed to mention that Alford was drinking at the West Vancouver Police Dept. prior to the accident and she was partying with other police officers, including Staff Sgt Bruce’s son Constable Mike Bruce. B.C.’s police complaint commissioner was already investigating Const. Mike Bruce. He was accused of forging a signature on a photo line-up during a robbery investigation. He was also suspended for three days after he failed to attend a noise complaint at a Future Shop and then wrote a false report. The officer then lied when confronted about it. He later confessed when his police cruiser’s Global Positioning System was analyzed The Police Complaints Commissioner asked the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) to investigate Bruce and Fontaine. The VPD found the officers allegedly breached the code of conduct. A disciplinary proceeding was ordered in February 2007 and there had been a couple of attempts to have a disciplinary proceeding occur,” said Bruce Brown, Deputy Police Complaints Commissioner. Disciplinary hearings were scheduled, however the officers simply refused to attend the three scheduled hearings, exposing a profound weakness in the police act; saving themselves the need to either; reveal the truth of the investigation or perjure themselves further. The two suddenly retired in late 2008. A public hearing regarding the allegations was called off in February when the police complaint commissioner, Dirk Ryneveld, decided his office’s jurisdiction likely would not extend to retired police officers. Their disciplinary hearings were cancelled after they retired in 2008.  Doug Bruce says he took sick leave due to stress. I guess he was under stress, dodging the truth and remembering that many lies is a tiring business, but I thank him for the mockery he is making of the police and the people of British Columbia. He will now hide in Penticton send his lawyer to negotiate a settlement while the public costs mount, collect his pension and leave the bad taste and public scorn of this incident for other members to live with and deal with every day.  The two members in question not only broke the law, they continued to collect over $150,000.00 each in salary, continued to have access to all police benefits and then then waltzed off into the night, thumbing their noses at the Law, its principles, the People of West Vancouver, and their own sworn oathes; saving their pensions, thank you very much. People may say that police are shown no favouritism but that can not be stated here, with out opening ones self up to ridicule, these facts speak for themselves. Bruce now in his hypocrisy, claims the former Mayor and the former Police Chief made false statements about him,  and requires redress; that the two defendants “recklessly and deliberately” breached “their” duty. The statement is outrageous. Be assure Sir, I have every sympathy for you and hope you get just what you deserve.”
  
Now it is undeniable that Canada’s supposed law and order party that has been in power for a few years, has had time to find money and jobs for thousands of their friends., that has been electing judges to suit their own tastes as well, has been falsely spending taxpayer’s money, using governmental resources to promote their own reelection and also to promote the the new Conservative party, this same party and it’s leader Prime Mister Stephen Harper, it’s justice ministers have absolutely failed to deal adequately with the much too many bad, abusive cops, RCMP we still do now have in Canada and why was that now? Application of governmental Accountability is only an election gimmick?
 
and for decades I have rightfully complained that the police get drunk after work and drive drunk home too and rarely even get arrested for it.. and the news media often tells us so as well.. unacceptable too..

 

Stephen Harper and the Economic Crisis

 

women may09

Ottawa (20 May 2009) – The National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) has released a new leaflet entitled Women, Stephen Harper and the Economic Crisis.  The leaflet examines the issues facing Canadian women during the current economic crisis. 
 http://www.nupge.ca/files/publications/MiscPDFs/_pamphlet_women_harper_economic_crisis_may09.pdf     
 
The lack of an early childhood education and child care program, the inequities that exist for women in the Employment Insurance (EI) program and the pay gap between women and men have left Canadian women struggling long before the economic recession began.  The Conservative government’s Federal Budget 2009 which was to respond to the economic crisis provided no support for women.  The economic stimulus provided billions of dollars into physical infrastructure projects and construction programs which are male dominated industries.  It did not, however, put money into social infrastructures such as child care, health care and community-based social services which are female dominated industries.  It is harder for women to accumulate the number of hours to qualify for EI as they are more likely to work part-time, non-standard hours and have extended periods of time away from the workforce to handle family responsibilities.  The extension of five weeks of EI benefits does not help women who cannot quality for benefits to begin with.  The Federal Budget did not provide or improve access to affordable child care which is essential in order for women to seek employment or retrain.  For female single parents, many of whom are poor and cannot afford child care fees, a universal early education and child care program is imperative. “Child care, EI and pay equity are just a few of the issues confronting Canadian women as the economy tightens. Governments must invest in social infrastructure which puts money into fields with high female employment and at the same time provides services which support our children, our elderly and our sick,” states NUPGE national president James Clancy. “During this economic downturn, rather than continuing to deepen the equality gap, the government must address the issues facing Canadian women and must ensure that women are included in the economic recovery,” stresses Clancy. http://www.nupge.ca/node/2300
 

“Just the Facts: Stephen Harper misleads Canadians on Employment Insurance

The Facts: liberal_logo_main

Prime Minister Stephen Harper made several misleading statements about EI in the House of Commons yesterday.

“It is simply a proposal… to raise payroll taxes to the roof in perpetuity for workers in small business.”

Fact: There is absolutely no requirement to raise payroll taxes in order to increase EI eligibility. The Liberal plan for EI eligibility does not include any increase in revenue collection. Payroll taxes are frozen and Liberals support leaving them that way.

“The Liberal Leader… is making the proposal that a Canadian could work 45 days and collect employment insurance for a year and that would be the system in every region in perpetuity.”

Fact: You can only receive EI if you’ve paid into the system and been laid off through no choice and no fault of your own. EI is not, in Diane Finley’s words, “lucrative for (laid-off Canadians) to stay home and get paid for it.” The government’s EI policy allows for a variable length of eligibility by region – ranging from 19 to 50 weeks – and the Liberal proposal doesn’t change that. Liberals are making proposals that reflect the reality of the recession while Conservatives remain oblivious to the growing crisis.

“The proposal… would do nothing for the economy, for the recession today.”

Fact: Laid-off workers are those most likely to spend 100 percent of their benefits to provide for their immediate day-to-day needs – things like food, rent and transportation – providing direct economic stimulus to some of the hardest-hit regions in the country. For every $1 spent by laid-off workers, local economies benefit from $1.60 in economic spin-offs.

“Over 80 percent of those who are paying into (Employment Insurance) are receiving benefits.”

Fact: Under the current rules, less than 60 percent of unemployed Canadians who have paid into EI receive benefits. 150,000 more people would be eligible for EI under our proposal – which would provide fairness for nearly half of the over 300,000 people laid off under your watch since last October.

“We have an EI system that responds to market needs. When we have difficulties as we have now, the system responds – benefits increase, eligibility increases as well.”

Fact: EI only adjusts after the unemployment rate has risen dramatically – cold comfort for those who lose their job without EI benefits before the unemployment number skyrockets. EI was not designed to react quickly to the massive, nationwide job losses experienced under this Conservative government.

Five misrepresentations in one Question Period exchange leaves us with one question: why is the Prime Minister trying to divide Canadians on fairness for laid-off workers?  “http://www.liberal.ca/story_15825_e.aspx

  

Harper Conservatives forget missing and murdered Aboriginal women

Harper forgets about the poor and needy persons now too.
 
HARPER.richman
“In a recent Whigstory (” ‘Government needs to grow up,’ ” May 14), Ignatieff is quoted as saying, “On a day when we’ve got record bankruptcies, we’ve got unemployment skyrocketing, all this government can think of doing is running attack ads on me…. This is the old style of politics. We’re in the middle of a serious economic crisis. This government needs to grow up and do its job properly.” Would Harper rather have an election than help Canadians? Is his heart really that cold?

The prime minister should act like a grownup and do the honourable thing. He and his MPs were elected by a minority of Canadians to govern in the best interest of Canadians. To date, he has not done so. He is the country’s prime minister and yet he turns his back on the weakest and most vulnerable people in society. He’d rather criticize and bully others than work together to find solutions to the economic crisis this country is facing.

Harper will have a pension when he leaves Parliament. He has food on the table, a roof over his head, a chauffeur to drive him around. Thousands of Canadians, especially in Ontario, don’t even know where their next paycheque is coming from, how they are going to feed their children, whether they still have a pension or whether they can pay the rent. “

 http://www.thewhig.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=1574501

  The federal government outlined changes to unemployment benefits on Monday that stopped short of the sweeping EI reforms demanded by opposition parties, in a move that could bring down the minority Conservative government and trigger another election. The proposed changes, outlined by Human Resources Minister Diane Finley on Monday in Oshawa, Ont., include $500 million program for retraining laid-off long-tenured workers and an extension of EI benefits if applicants participate in longer-term training of up to two years. The $500 million was included in the Conservatives’ January budget.  Finley said the new program will help an estimated 40,000 Canadians learn new skills to find work in a different field.  Another initiative will help between 5,000 and 10,000 people by providing EI benefits sooner to eligible workers who spend all or part of their severance package on training themselves for another job, Finley said. While political analysts have raised doubts about a summer trip to the polls in the midst of a recession, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff has threatened to push for an election if Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s minority government doesn’t support his party’s proposals on EI reform.

Going overboard with the law

  
Now in reality the Police who are often lying and saying they are serving the public good by going overboard with their law enforcement are just merely being selfish, self centered, trying to promote themselves at the citizens expense and that is now true Canada wide, with the local police, RCMP, sheriffs now too.  The Montreal woman who was handcuffed and fined $420 for not holding a subway station escalator handrail is planning to fight the tickets, saying she was treated like a “criminal” for trying to avoid germs. “They are dirty!  
 
OUR,.RULES

Dumb   male cop gives his first ticket to a women not respecting him and for not holding the handrail on the escalators in Laval, Quebec.

 A $100 ticket handed to a woman for failing to hold the handrail on an escalator in the Montreal metro system was a first for the young officer and the police in suburban Laval, where the 2007 subway extension is still sparklingly new. But the besieged police department just north of Montreal still wrongfully maintains the officer named Camacho – it wouldn’t confirm his full name – did the right thing as the force revealed new details to explain why the officer handed out the fine, along with another for $320 for obstructing police work. Mr. Camacho, a six-year officer who works the metro looking for fare-jumpers and other scofflaws, was walking past Bela Kosoian when he suggested in French that she hang on to the handrail. Ms. Kosoian says she didn’t understand the officer and, at first, didn’t recognize him as a police officer. When she did, she admits she refused to follow his order. She refused to give her ID for the ticket, saying she’d done nothing wrong.   Neither Ms. Kosoian nor Mr. Camacho are native French speakers. The police department has been besieged with angry calls from citizens . Ms. Kosoian,  has been overwhelmed by interview requests and calls of support, including from a lawyer offering to take her case. The criminologist Eric Beauregard said a wider public interest in rousting Ms. Kosoian is tough to see. “Just what other criminal behaviour are the police trying to prevent?” and how many people actually have been killed by not holding a handrail? 

Quebec woman gets ticket for refusing to hold handrail

Laval police are the ones who should get a grip

The Gazette (Montreal) –  When a Laval police officer first suggested to Bela Kosoian – who was on an escalator headed down into Montmorency métro station – that she should hold onto the handrail for her own safety, it seemed to be done in a spirit of friendly concern.

The Gazette (Montreal) – ‎May 19, 2009‎ Laval police said yesterday they issued three separate warnings to Bela Kosoian that she was obliged to hold onto an escalator handrail in a métro station before they handcuffed her briefly and issued two tickets totalling $420 against her.

Look, Ma!

The Gazette (Montreal) –  I’m still laughing. So here is a picture of Bela Kosoian in the Laval métro station (Gazette, May 20) where she was given three warnings for not holding onto the handrail. She was handcuffed. She was given two tickets and fined a total of $420.

POLICE.THUGS

HERE IS MY FREE SPEECH.. TIME TO FIRE THESE DESPOTIC COPS.. ALL OF THEM

2 recently retired police officers testified that they had a quota to meet daily, 40 traffic tickets and at least 25 percent of them were undeserving.. and the corrupt policing system goes on nation wide.
 
Government Workers Earn More but do less work as well, police included, too many civil and public servants many use their government work to do their private, personal activities. I used to go out for lunch with a municipal lawyer 3 times per week, and I visited his office often too, most of his work he did at his job was unrelated to his job.
 
Now I was raised in Canada to respect law and order, and the ten commandments, I made mistake I thought everyone else did as well,  and I next also expected honesty, integrity justice from our peace officers but that dream was quickly shattered in real life, even in city hall,  in police stations and in the courts. The religious  fundamentals would have us all to believe that all Justice, police are ordained by God, but that clearly these days is a vile distortion, for some of the biggest liars, most immoral persons I have personally encounter are in our justice system not just in our medical systems,  including the mostly self serving  justice ministers, lawyers, police, as most of us easily find out too. Simple back and white, law and order issues take on hidden political , politically correct agendas rather too, to maintain the empire building justice establishments. Asking a cop firstly to do some real work tends to be a farce as well since they are know to be lazy, pretentious as well. My advice is stay away from them all. you cannot\ win playing with the crooks., the bad guys who change rules to suit their own purposes, agendas.

Double dipping. Police dip into victims’ cash

 http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/article/702444   TORONTO STAR Sep 29, 2009 04:30 AM   41 victim cash award decisions by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board in the last three months of 2008, but the incidents in question occurred from 1999 onwards. Taxpayers paid $1.5 million to officers hurt on job out of coffers meant for civilians  A police officer received $10,000 as compensation because he can no longer enjoy gardening, visiting flea markets and collecting carnival glass. Another officer was awarded $1,000 after a suspect bit his arm but not hard enough to break the skin. A third broke a finger while making an arrest and received $6,500 after he claimed the fracture led to arthritis and a lower quality of life. A provincial fund that compensates civilians victimized by violent crime is routinely and increasingly paying “pain and suffering” cash awards to police officers who suffer minor injuries on the job. Workplace insurance already compensates these injured officers. A Toronto Star investigation has found that since 2005, more than 400 officers and prison guards across Ontario received a total of $1.5 million from the taxpayer-funded Criminal Injuries Compensation Board (CICB).  The board released 10 per cent of its decisions to the Star, and an analysis shows the officers who receive the cash often return to full duties, carrying a gun. A Star analysis shows the number of payouts and the average amount of each award have risen dramatically over the past four years. The amount of money given annually to officers has more than doubled since 2005, with $623,000 awarded in 2008. The number of payouts has also jumped, from 92 in 2005 to 137 last year. That’s a 49 per cent increase.  “I’m absolutely appalled,” said Dr. Leslie Balmer, a Peel Region psychologist who counsels families of murder victims. “I thought this is a fund … for victims of crime, not police officers … doing their job.”  Alan Young, law professor and author of a 2003 report on victim compensation systems across Canada, said: “I am somewhat shocked by the audacity that police forces feel they can tap into money that (is not) intended to assist them. It seems like this is double-dipping going on.” Toronto Police Service employees top the list with 133 cash awards since 2005. Ontario Provincial Police is second with 71. Peel Regional Police is next with 25. Ottawa Police ranked fourth with 20. The forerunner of the current law, the 1967 Law Enforcement Compensation Act, was meant to compensate civilians injured while assisting police, like the widow of Jack Blanc, a Toronto resident who was killed helping police try to stop a bank bandit. Over the years the law changed and has become widely known as a fund for civilian victims of violent crime who lose wages or suffer out-of-pocket expenses. It is now the Compensation for Victims of Crime Act. Ottawa Police Chief Vern White said   “I am surprised. I always thought it was for civilian victims.”

“The police force and prison guards have a very strong union. They have unbelievably strong benefits. They have additional resources that ordinary citizens do not have if they are injured by violent crime,” The Police have abused the system. By the shear results, percentages alone, the police have falsely taken advantages over the citizens, victims of crime.. “Police have the same right as any other citizen to apply for compensation if they have been the victim of a crime.” but the Police have unfair advantage they have an inside track, and free legal counsel as well.. paid by the taxpayers.. all clearly an abuse of what was definitely meant for all of the citizens.  The Ontario Liberal government undeniably allows the false abuse of the system again too.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/25/the-police/

RCMP.THUGS.TODAY
 
Motorists were forced to watch their speed over the long weekend after the Alberta Sheriff Highway Patrol buckled down on drivers.

More than 4,000 charges were laid across the province over Victoria Day long weekend, over 3,000 of which were for speeding.

Sheriffs also caught over 20 suspected impaired drivers as well as arrested over 30 people pulled over with outstanding arrest warrants.

Some of the charges break down as follows:

3,020 speeding violations,

154 Gaming and Liquor Act violations,

113 seatbelt infractions,

47 failure to stop at a stop sign violations,

135 other hazardous violations like careless driving or stunting,

589 non-hazardous violations like no insurance and suspended drivers.

More tickets equals more money for the province, this does nothing to make the roads safer. CASH COW, HIDDEN TAX …thats all it is…….230,000 violations @ $80 ea… = $18,400,000.00

SHERRIFF

Supposedly Unsafe drivers in Whitecourt, Wetaskawin, Olds and Airdrie were also stopped at the wheel by traffic enforcement pilot projects. Sheriffs and RCMP laid over 800 charges in those rural areas alone, mostly for speeding too even though speeding is not the main cause of accidents .The Alberta Sheriff Highway Patrol has issued over 230,000 traffic tickets violations since its inception in 2006 generating millions and millions of dollars. The police should go instead after the real criminals, the real murders, robbers. starting with the police themselves..

Now in reality the Police who are often lying and saying they are serving the public good by going overboard with their law enforcement are just merely being selfish thugs, self centered, trying to promote themselves at the citizens expense and that is now true Canada wide, with the local police, RCMP, sheriffs now too.  Monday June 15,2009 Canadian Press  VANCOUVER — A judge has decided the inquiry into the death of Robert Dziekanski will be allowed to make findings of misconduct against the four RCMP officers involved. The officers who stunned Dziekanski with a Taser at Vancouver’s airport challenged Commissioner Thomas Braidwood’s authority to make findings of misconduct against them. Braidwood had warned the officers he would consider allegations made at the inquiry — that they acted improperly and then lied to cover up their actions. The officers claimed those allegations amount to criminal offences, which public inquiries can’t do. They also argued that federal police officers are outside the jurisdiction of a provincial inquiry. But Justice Arne Silverman rejected those arguments, which means the inquiry can resume as scheduled this Friday with closing submissions. Now go after the rest of the bad cops too.

  CALGARY – Alberta is suffering an “image deficit” over criticism of the province’s oilsands and provincial Conservatives called for a new campaign to minimize the damage to business and tourism.  A resolution introduced at the Alberta Progressive Conservative Convention on Saturday argued that sophisticated and well-financed environmental organizations and special interest groups are having success in attempts to redefine Alberta’s image in “extremely negative” terms.   http://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/10/29/alberta-concerned-only-lately-about-its-image-reputation/

Statistics Canada has  found that Canada’s police force expenditures grew for the 12th consecutive year, to about $11-billion, or $344 per capita.

I am only following orders is not a valid response for anyone, any  cop now too… then maybe they should quit this bad job.. while the truth is that in most communities, the bulk of the ticket fees do go to the   general funds while next a  portion is also sent to the city or county who wrote the ticket. Still, it is  your  bad police force that does writes thousands of tickets a month and that income can quickly add up to millions of dollars and be very beneficial to the bad governments especially in these sour economical times as well, and also  as lead for more  raises, promotional for  these bad, abusive  cops now too..   It’s really still a perverse  form of generating revenue without spending much additional money to get that much wanted additional income even if they now also are taking it also now from the unemployed, disabled, very poor drivers.

 They use the Calgary police, Edmonton police, traffic light cameras, Radar cameras, RCMP and Sheriffs to collect as much traffic ticket revenue, other ticket revenues,  that they can and have also  build big court houses to handle the larger court volumes as a result too, all done by  using a distorted  letter of the law approach.  

POLICE.THUGS

WE ALL REALLY NEED PROTECTION FROM THESE SELF SERVING CONSERVATIVES

Weekend Infractions revenue recorded in the RCMP district of Cochrane
Traffic Safety Act 467
Gaming and Liquor Act 143
Environmental Enhancement and Protection Act 1
Forests Act 24
Provincial Parks Act 25
Controlled Drugs and Substances Act 30
Criminal Code 13
24-hour suspensions 16
Serious motor vehicle collisions 2
Arrests in field 25
Warnings 200
Abandoned vehicles 6
Other 8
Total 960

Southern Alberta RCMP recorded an increase in violations at backcountry campsites and on rural roads as enforcement officers were out in full force over the long weekend. All supposed infractions generate much need revenue for the cash strapped Albertan government.

Preliminary statistics for the RCMP district of Cochrane, which includes the popular McLean Creek area, indicate a total of 960 incidents from Friday until noon Monday, said RCMP Sgt. Patrick Webb.

Almost 500 of the cases were violations of the Traffic Safety Act, 200 were warnings, and 30 were seizures of small amounts of drugs that did not warrant charges.

Officers, including fish and wildlife staff and provincial sheriffs, can now issue tickets on the spot for infractions such as a messy campsite. Charges like that used to require an officer witnessing the violation as well as a lengthy court process.  Campers who don’t clean up their site face a new $172 fine.

Now in reality the Police who are often lying and saying they are serving the public good by going overboard with their law enforcement are just merely being selfish thugs, self centered, trying to promote themselves at the citizens expense and that is now true Canada wide, with the local police, RCMP, sheriffs now too.

And this EXTREEME POLICE ENFORCEMENTS also cause the profits,  revenue for the insurance industrry to go up as the insurance firms raise the driver’s rate now next too.. that is really socking it to them..
