AND WHAT ABOUT THE RCMP NOW TOO? AND ALL OTHERS?
OTTAWA — Dozens of top-ranking military officers are still on the public payroll after retiring from their jobs with hefty pensions.
Documents released under Access to Information show senior brass in the army, navy and air force can collect both a pension and a salary by switching over to the reserves after retirement — a practice dubbed “double-dipping” by some critics.
Records released by the Department of National Defence list 207 senior officers ranked lieutenant-colonel or above presently serving as Class B service members of the Reserve Force. That group includes several brigadiers-general, navy captains and colonels retired from regular duty and now serving in the reserves.
Brig-Gen. Christian Barabe, whose pending retirement from the regular forces was announced in a news release in January 2009, is among the top-ranked officers on the list.
OUR PUBLIC AND CIVIL SERVANTS, THE Stephen Harper’s CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT CLEARLY NOW AS WELL DO NOT MIND SHAFTING, ABUSING THE TAXPAYERS ANYTIME THEY CAN AND NONE, NONE OF THIS IS ACCEPTABLE
(Isa 1:23 KJV) Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.
Aboriginal leaders demand RCMP to release video footage of dead man’s arrest Mon Nov 16, 11:05 PM VANCOUVER, B.C. – Aiming for greater police oversight and to keep a spotlight on Taser use by officers, aboriginal leaders are demanding RCMP release a video showing the arrest of a man who was shocked with a Taser and died in their custody more than six years ago. A 2004 coroner’s inquest into the man’s death found he died of a cocaine overdose, and noted that his autopsy revealed previous cardiac damage.But after the president of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs recently viewed what he alleges to be “deeply disturbing” and “heavily-edited” footage, he and the B.C. Civil Liberties Association are calling for the raw version’s release.In the video, Willey is pulled from an RCMP vehicle, dragged through the station and shocked with a Taser several times while lying on the floor, cuffed and bound, said Grand Chief Stewart Phillip. He and several others were recently given access to the tape by RCMP owing to their status as “concerned stakeholders.”"The only way we’re going to bring about change is to pressure all levels of government – and the RCMP, and policing agencies in general – to change their methods, to change their techniques and to ensure there is civilian oversight, so they’re not investigating themselves because, in pretty much every case, they simply circle the wagons and defend their own,” Phillip said in an interview Monday.He believes the treatment of Willey was more egregious than Dziekanski’s because the aboriginal man posed a low threat when he was stunned because he was tied up and on the floor.” … given the public reaction to the Dziekanski videos, I think that would have some influence on what we’re allowed to see,” he said.
It was a first for Canada: Desiré Munyaneza, scion of a wealthy family in the former Belgian colony of Rwanda, was sentenced in Montreal last month after a lengthy trial for crimes against humanity during the genocide of 1994. He was not the first alleged war criminal to enter Canada, but was the first to be convicted under Canada’s War Crimes Act, which allows Canadian residents to be prosecuted for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. In his landmark judgment, Justice André Denis of Quebec Superior Court sentenced Munyaneza 42, was sentenced to life in prison in Canada , after being convicted of seven counts of genocide in Rwanda in 1994 , with no chance of parole for 25 years. Munyaneza not only incited genocide, he led a team of Hutu murderers as part of the systematic killing of at least 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus. He was arrested in Toronto in 2005 under the new Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act. The evidence showed that Munyaneza’s family had stockpiled machetes just before the attacks began. The evidence showed he killed dozens himself in a deliberate and premeditated way, justifying the toughest sentence under Canadian law. In his trenchant ruling, the judge wrote that Munyaneza “chose to kill, rape and pillage in the name of the supremacy of his ethnic group,” reminding us that “every time a man claims to belong to a superior race, a chosen people, humanity is in danger.” As for the accused denying guilt, Denis wrote, “Denying genocide is to kill the victims a second time.” “There is no greater crime than genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes,” he continued. “History has shown that what happened there could happen anywhere in the world, that nobody is safe from such a tragedy.” He Desiré Munyaneza, will be 67 when he gets out of prison just in time for a Canada pension .. Now did this very rich person from a wealthy family even made to pay for the court costs, police costs involved, and his cost of imprisonment as well?
Canadian prosecutors investigated for years before arresting him? And as usual ”The investigation in Rwanda was very difficult, time-consuming and dangerous for the RCMP police officers , it was difficult to locate witnesses and then convince them to talk about suspected war crimes.” Especially difficult when you cannot speak their language to start of with. But firstly by now we all do tend to know the RCMP lies, and cannot be trusted.
One of the main reasons that we cannot get adequate justice still now served in Canada is because the RCMP itself is cost ineffective, extravagant, wasteful and and poorly managed. Now excluding the lawyers and court costs themselves specially to the above cause do tell us all “How much did it cost in total for the RCMP to investigate the Desiré Munyaneza matter”. How many RCMP officer were actually now involved, supervisors inluded, and the length of time, the actual number of trips traveled aboard included. All costs included. This is certainly not too much to ask now is it…
Out Conservative law and order Stephen Harper justice department does nothing about the bad cops and I do often wonder why again..
