This has been going on wrongfully for ages, unchecked still

MONTREAL – A hospital emergency room might not be the best place for the sick  and elderly. The risk of acute infection – mostly respiratory and gastrointestinal viruses – following a trip to the emergency room is three times higher among the  elderly, according to a study published Monday in the Canadian Medical  Association Journal. Long-term care patients who spent a few hours in an emergency facility were  more likely to get sick in two to seven days after returning to their nursing  homes.

So who realy protects the Canadian citizens from the too often bad cops, bad RCMP

Not only is there rarely any justice when it comes to holding the much too many  bad cops to accountiablity but if there is any it takes years to do so.. and then not much good  tends to happen

.

Vancouver police are caught in an embarrassing situation in which they’re accused of beating up a man who they thought was a bank robber. Not only was he not the right guy — it turned out no bank had been robbed. Manjit Singh says he had just taken his garbage out the curb of his home near Joyce Street and Kingsway when a police approached him. “He pushed me on the fence,” said Singh, 51. “He said, ‘RCMP, RCMP.’” Other officers then swarmed him and started beating him up, Singh said. “One guy put the knee on my neck, one guy put the knee on my legs,” “They start kicking me … powerful kicks. Left, right, left, right.” 

The case appears to be similar to an incident in 2010 when South Vancouver resident Yao Wei Wu was pulled out of his home and roughed up by two plainclothes officers who mistook him for another man who had allegedly assaulted his wife.

“I need justice now,” said Singh, who suffered cuts, bruises and apparent trauma. “Why they attack on one innocent guy?

Once again the Big firms like Rogers tend not to respect the laws..

http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/01/14/oppose-the-price-increases-lack-of-competition/

OTTAWA — Rogers Communications Inc., is breaking Canada’s Internet traffic management rules by deliberately slowing down certain online traffic, the country’s telecommunications regulator said Friday. In a letter to Rogers posted to its website Friday, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commissions said it is “of the belief” that the telecom giant is in breach of the rules governing how Internet Service Providers control the flow of traffic on their networks. “Within two weeks, I look forward to you either presenting us with a rebuttal of our evidence or providing us with a plan to come into compliance with the (Telecommunications) Act,” writes Andrea Rosen, CRTC’s chief compliance and enforcement officer. “Failure to provide a meaningful rebuttal or an effective plan will result in my recommendation to Commissioners to hold a show-cause hearing.” http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/01/20/rogers-breaking-internet-rules-by-throttling-bandwidth-crtc/

So who realy protects the Canadian citizens from the too often bad, immoral  firms in reality, now  holding the much too many crooked   firms to accountiablity but if there is any justice  it takes years to do so.. and for decades then not much good  tends to happen ..

Anyone doubt the oil producers and sellers are greedy hogs?

You can tell this by their continual price increases, often not justified..   

 

The Alberta and federal governments have said the Oil sand pipeline is crucial to  building new markets for the country’s resources. But environmental,  aboriginal and social action groups say the risks of a pipeline rupture or oil  tanker spill are too great. Money the root of all evil is evident here too..

 

Can it get worse.. yes!  What about the hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) attempts  to  free trapped natural gas deposits. It’s   fiercely opposed by environmentalists , and they also now rightfuly do even oppose   the development of Canada’s oilsands, because of real, legimate concerns, causes other major  environmental damage, also pollutes the undergound waters and also the rivers next too, concerns include  environmental effects on air and water quality, and  the risk of oil spills. Concerns even that fracking increases methane concentrations in underground water tables.. concerns that the oil transporters would never aaccount for every “little oops”, or big oil spills   in the BC wilderness and elsewhere.

Now the cost of the oil sands production and transportation  is overall  horrendous and filled with risks of serious environmental  damages…  existing oil piplines alread leak too often..  Canada’s oil sands now also do require more energy to extract and refine crude, and that means a greater release of greenhouse gases than from refining conventional oil. The oil industry is a multi-billion transnational industry backed by a C anadian Tory  government that will peddle  the tarsands to any foreign buyer who will bite.

“Plus, there is no guarantee that jobs created from pipelines will be safe,  well-paying, and permanent. In the tarsands, multinational corporations prefer  cheap, exploitable, and disposable labour, especially migrant workers. Last  year, the Petroleum Human Resources Council sought an additional 100,000 migrant  workers to work on tarsands infrastructure. Much like the tragic legacy of  Chinese railway workers, the deaths of two Chinese migrant workers in 2007 is a  sober reminder of the dangers of this industry to the land and workers alike.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Natural Resource Minister Joe Oliver have also now been taken to task recently  for their false distortions, diversions, their desperate theories aboutall those  radical foreign environmentalists and  the socialists, billionaires hijacking the Enbridge Oil Pipleine Joint Review Panel hearings.

The $5.5-billion proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline would cross  1,000 rivers and streams, including the Fraser and Skeena headwaters.  Supertankers, with capacity of up to two million barrels of oil, would  criss-cross along coastal waters. The 1,172-kilometre pipeline would also impact  the Great Bear Rainforest, one of the last intact temperate coastal rain forests  on our planet and the only home to the rare spirit bear. Enbridge has reported a  total of 610 spills between 1999 and 2008 from its various projects. The proposed pipeline traverses the territories of 65 first nations, of which  at least 61 have declared their opposition. http://www.vancouversun.com/news/canada-in-afghanistan/Enbridge+pipeline+distortions/6016517/story.html

Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservatives and the pro-oilsands website EthicalOil.org take Canadian environmental groups to task for accepting money from big American foundations to finance their campaigns against the oilsands. Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver accused “environmental and other radical groups” of trying to use money from “foreign special-interest groups” to hijack hearings on a pipeline that would bring Alberta oilsands bitumen to a port on the British Columbia coast. But the Canadian government seems to have no qualms accepting grant money from private U.S. foundations — including some of the same organizations that gave to Canadian environmental groups.

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/rich-u-groups-funded-environmentalists-gave-canadian-government-100009296.html

.

The federal government considers environmental and aboriginal groups “adversaries” when it comes to the oilsands, according to documents obtained under access to information laws.   “The documents show that the government, for a long time, has had a plan for promoting the tarsands, which is based on an elaborate public relations strategy and attacking people they see as enemies, rather that actually trying to clean up the problem,”“The documents show that the government, for a long time, has had a plan for promoting the tarsands, which is based on an elaborate public relations strategy and attacking people they see as enemies, rather that actually trying to clean up the problem,”

OPPOSE THE PRICE INCREASES, LACK OF COMPETITION

Get ready for price increases, more bureaucratic red tape, and disrespectful customer service.

We have reports that the Big Three cell phone giants (who control roughly 94% of the market) are trying to trick the government into shutting out independent competitors. Some of them are going so far as to use high-priced lobbyists and a fake grassroots campaign1.

If the Big Three succeed, they will:

  • SqueezeCanadians into tighter contracts, with disrespectful customer service.
  • Squeezemore money out of your wallet every single month.
  • Squeeze independent providers out of the cell phone market.

In short, they will be the only game in town, and that means you and I will pay more for our cell phones. It will lock Canada behind the rest of the world on mobile communications, cripple essential innovation, limit social progress, and drain your wallet every month.

Sign the Stop The Squeeze petition before it’s too late!

Canadians already pay some of the highest cell phone fees in the free world2. This is a gut check for Canada. Will we let price-gouging big telecom companies squeeze every last penny out of our wallets before we stand up for ourselves? Will we let them slow-walk our economy into disaster?

 

We’ve heard that the Industry Minister is about to make a decision that could rubber stamp this cell phone nightmare into reality. Please join Canadians from across the country in signing this urgent petition to send him a message.

Let’s not put up with this anymore.

Curing cancer: a reality check Not likley soon..

.
Anyone who is a adult should know easily by now that the world has much too many crooks, and that even a university degrees does not turn all of the persons into honest persons.. some of them are still crooks. Any doubts? just think when was the last time you heard the last time about an honest lawyer?  I personaly had met some bad university medical doctors, Researchers who boasted they were good at getting research grants, but they admitted they also were abusing them.. crooks like to boast too.
.
One of the pet peeves I have is how many people unwisely give their money to bad churches, bad organizations, the bad Salvation Army and even to bad, wasted medical research..
.
Helping to find a cure for cancer or hearth attacks is still too often wasteful,  just more money abuse when the major reasons for the related  deaths is caused by one’s personal lifestyle, even their eating habits. and not aging even. so what does research do to help in this are.. not much good still.
.
Cancer became the top killer of Canadians in 2011.. Curing cancer often leads the most hoped-for list when you ask people what medical breakthroughs they would like to see. But trying to answer the question of whether the war on cancer is being won means stepping into a contradictory tangle of statistics, anecdotes, hopes and fears.  There has been remarkable progress against some childhood cancers but very little change in mortality rates for some other forms…”there will not be one cancer magic bullet.”That’s partly because there are 200 or more forms of cancer. “We shouldn’t neglect the fact that cancer is a very complicated and complex disease,” said Dr. Ben Neel, director of the Ontario Cancer Institute at Toronto’s Princess Margaret Hospital. “Even lung cancer is probably 10 different types of molecular disease.”    The biological basis of cancer also makes a single silver bullet less likely to work… to win the war against cancer, it needs to be fought on all fronts, including prevention… cancer incidence rates could be cut in half through these preventive steps: Quitting smoking: 25 per cent to 30 per cent of cancers are caused by smoking, but a quarter of the population still smokes.  Avoiding drinking alcohol in excess. Increasing physical activity.  “I think everybody’s scared to use this cure word,”  “There are patients living six, seven years still disease-free that should not have lived for six years. I would be tempted to call that a cure. We’ll see.”  “Unfortunately, our success in reducing the mortality from cancer over the past 60 years has been very, very modest,” . “So I don’t think, as I say, that it’s realistic or even necessary to talk about curing cancer in order to make a big impact.” He sees some downside in promoting unrealistic hope from a cure or positive prognosis for some patients with terminal cancer. Patients may request more aggressive therapies that may not actually be helping them, “We have seen over the past decade that more and more patients with cancer are dying in the ICU than dying while receiving chemotherapy, going to the emergency room and spending hours and hours on a stretcher in the final month in their life.” an estimated 177,800 new cases of cancer expected to be diagnosed annually. http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/story/2011/12/30/cancer-chasing-cures.html

McGILL UNIVERSITY EVEN HELSP TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE NOW GETTING CANCER.
“McGill under fire for corporate-funded asbestos research  A letter signed by 76 international health experts and academics makes two requests of three senior members of McGill’s Board of Governors (BoG): that they cease inviting Roshi Chadh…a – who is involved in exporting asbestos from Canada – to sit on the BoG, and to cease using and promoting the use of asbestos. The letter states that McGill “has a long history of serving the interests of the Quebec asbestos industry,” including an “alliance” between the Quebec Asbestos Mining Association (QAMA) and former McGill professor John Corbett Macdonald in 1966. According to a recent episode of CBC’s The National, QAMA provided Macdonald at least $1 million between 1966 and 1972 for research into the health effects of chrysotile asbestos. The letter states that Macdonald “had significant influence around the world in putting forward information…that was favourable to the industry’s interests.” “http://www.mcgilldaily.com/2012/02/mcgill-under-fire-for-corporate-funded-asbestos-research/

 Proper medical care and not pretentious Medicare is still our Canadian right. And anyone who denies it needs to be incarcerated! Doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, Premiers, Ministers included. We pay a significant part of the Doctors, Nurse education, development , Training  and then they falsely try to abuse it to us by their deliberate poor performances.  If you are a medical professional, a medical administrator, or a health minister and you had now failed to prevent the death of one persons even, or had specialty failed to properly treat their medical condition then that certainly is a prosecutable criminal offence and for certainty you need to be incarcerated for your coldness,, indifference towards others now too .http://thenonconformer.blogspot.com/2010/02/mcgill-medical-doctors-in-montreal.html

Quebec’s asbestos industry draws new salvos from politicians, academics…. MONTREAL — Quebec’s asbestos industry is coming under increasing fire, with  two recent, damning documentaries airing on CBC and Radio-Canada, renewed calls  from politicians in Quebec City and Ottawa to outlaw the cancer-causing mineral,  and a review launched into some industry-funded research at McGill this  week.

On Friday, the opposition Quebec Solidaire called on the provincial and  federal governments to stop financing the asbestos industry and to ban export of  the mineral.

Parti Quebecois mining critic Martine Ouellette told the media she wants a  parliamentary commission to look at the issue.

The calls are partly in response to a documentary aired on Radio-Canada  Thursday evening “that reveals the true face of a lobby that in the past has had  no scruples at all about manipulating the facts to the detriment of human health  to defend its financial interests,” according to the Quebec Solidaire  statement.

McGill University in Montreal announced Thursday it has launched a  preliminary review into the work of professor emeritus John Corbett McDonald,  after the university received a letter last week signed by dozens of academics,  physicians and researchers accusing some McGill researchers of being controlled  by the asbestos industry.

Living high on the hog while paid by the taxpayers

Ottawa. The federal staff under the Conservative government are living high on the hog, having a good time on the taxpayers money, even flying around the world to learn about administration. This is no surprise since so many Conservative Ministers, senators, even the RCMP apparently do the same thing often. Meanwhile Quebecers also this year will pay more taxes to the governments. The RCMP also is known to be costly, cost ineffective already.

NDP MP Alexandre Boulerice said s that the federal government’s $2.2 million per year Advanced Leadership Program, which funds international trips for bureaucrats, is “too expensive,” especially at a time when taxpayers are being called to make financial “sacrifices.”

In 2009, the program had several participants visiting 35 different countries around the world including India, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, the U.S. and the Northwest Territories,  “Senior bureaucrats are flying around the world on lavish multi-destination trips on the taxpayer dime, all under the guise of ‘leadership training,’ and seeing how bureaucrats handle their jobs in other countries,”  This is not new for too many Civil servants in too any municipal and provincial governments did, do the same thing, even in Calgary Alberta.

Much too many liars, theives, bad managers.. no wonder they cannot even manage properly our heath care systems now too..
