Look the citizens are busy working, paying their taxes and they have elected Ministers to look after them instead.. It amazes me thus next that now for years and years one of the obvious major Citizens complaint in Canada that is still around is about the bad Bell phone company and why does it takes so long for the CRTC and the governments, ministers to even deal with it too.. and the other very often complaint still is about the bad cops getting away with abuses and murders.. Don’t believe me see how very popular my posts are about bad Bell and bad cops still are… almost as much as the bad comments about the bad PM… and bad alcoholics, divorce.
The useless CTRC does so little and so late..
The CRTC said it is concerned that “some wireless companies” are making it difficult for smaller mobile operators that do not operate a national network to compete in the marketplaceThe Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has launched a deeper investigation on wholesale wireless roaming rates in the country with the goal of determining in the country’s big three wireless carriers are charging excessive rates to smaller providers for use of their networks.Based on information obtained by the CRTC, some of the large providers are charging or proposing to charge, their smaller Canadian competitors significantly higher wholesale roaming rates than those charged to U.S.-based wireless companies, a statement from the telecom regulator said. Higher wholesale rates can impact the retail rates that smaller companies charge their customers.: http://www.itworldcanada.com/article/crtc-ramps-up-probe-on-roaming-rates/
Investigators shielded officers in police shooting of Montreal teen, coroner’s … A Quebec coroner’s report into the police shooting of a teenager that led to a riot in Montreal has found investigators failed to follow proper procedure and went out of their way to shield the officers involved from scrutiny. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/investigators-didnt-use-proper-procedure-in-villanueva-shooting-coroners-report-finds/article16001813/
Fredy Villanueva coroner report criticizes police practices.. Villanueva, 18, was shot and killed on Aug. 9, 2008, by Const. Jean-Loup Lapointe of Montreal police, after the young man was found playing an illegal game of dice with his brother and three friends in Montreal’s Henri-Bourassa Park.
“The death of M. Villanueva is the result of a multitude of human nature factors, which, if considered on their own, would not have logically justified this result,” the report states.
“Each year, thousands of infractions as trivial as playing dice in the park are the subject of police interventions that go well, even when police and members of the public disagree.”
The coroner’s report, released Tuesday morning, made about 20 recommendations, which focus mainly on police practices. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/fredy-villanueva-coroner-report-criticizes-police-practices-1.2466825

I HAVE TO SAY I AM A GREAT FAN OF DOCTORS, PARTICULARLY SINCE I FOUND MOST PEOPLE’S PERSONAL OPINIONS, MEDICAL ADVICE IS CRAP AND TRYING TO DIAGNOSE A MEDICAL SOLUTION TO A SICKNESS ON THE INTERNET TENDS TO BE USELESS AT LEAST 99 PERCENT OF THE TIME STILL TOO..
WHEN YOU HAVE A SERIOUS SICKNESS IT TAKES REAL DOCTORS AND REAL MEDICAL TESTING TO HELP YOU.. AND WHATEVER YOUR PROBLEM IS EVEN SUCH AS INFECTION, GLAND, HEART, SKIN, CANCER PROBLEMS TOO NOW
Now I have been to many doctors, and to many Hospitals, I seem to have tried half of them in Montreal, especially since I have had two very senior parents.. so I have been able to acquire a lot of basic medical knowledge that I have shared on the net at http://stayinhealth.wordpress.com/
UNFORTUNATELY THERE ARE STILL GOOD AND BAD DOCTORS AND GOOD AND BAD NURSES TOO..
I HAVE TO SAY I HAVE TOO OFTEN MET MOSTLY STILL STUPID NURSES, ESPECIALLY THE BASIC ONES WHO DO NOT HAVE A UNIVERSITY DEGREE.. EVEN TEN NURSES STILL WILL NOT MAKE ONE GOOD DOCTOR. Also the good nurses serve the sick patient, the bad nurses bully them..
Millions of persons have diabetes, and many of them do not even know it.. Now diabetes is not to be taken lightly for it has serious negative personal side effects. Diabetes is influenced by genes, and the food we eat, exercise as well.
NOW EVEN MOST MEDICAL PERSONAL MAY KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT DIABETES, (SOME HOW I REALLY DOUBT IT AS THEY TEND TO TOO OFTEN FALSELY SKIP MEALS, THAT ITSELF IS A CAUSE OF DIABETES EVEN,) BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN THEY UNDERSTAND NOW HOW TO DEAL WITH IT..

The Conservatives had been elected on their own promises of accountability, transparency and they would be next better than all the previous governments, Political parties and we next do easily know this was not so. It never happened.
In 2006, Accountable Government: A Guide for Ministers and Secretaries of State said that ministers were responsible for “the actions of all officials under their management and direction, whether or not the ministers had prior knowledge.”. Next the guidelines from 2011 says: “Ministerial accountability to Parliament does not mean that a minister is presumed to have knowledge of every matter that occurs within his or her department or portfolio, nor that the minister is necessarily required to accept blame for every matter.”
Mr. Harper insists he did not learn that his former chief of staff, Nigel Wright, wrote a personal cheque for $90,000 to cover Mr. Duffy’s expenses until two months after the money was repaid. Mr. Wright and Mr. Duffy are now the subject of an RCMP investigation into fraud, bribery and breach of trust. He is at full fault as even both bad Duffy and bad Wright were hired by the Prime Minster firstly and he needs to fully accept the Blame for that..

The pretentious, useless, cost ineffective RCMP is not something new even if the Canadian Auditor General now says the same thing… Several major federal departments have failed to fix previously identified weaknesses in safeguarding taxpayers’ dollars and are dragging their heels on long-overdue changes, the federal auditor general says in a new report. Some people who pose a threat to Canadians’ security managed by the RCMP have managed to enter the country illegally because of lax border entry controls. Auditor General Michael Ferguson said he was “very concerned that our audit found too many examples of controls not working.”
The auditor general’s report found gaps in security at Canada’s entry points, which have allowed some dangerous people to slip into the country.“We know in one sample of 49 that two people were successful getting into the country, people with serious criminal backgrounds,” Ferguson said.“In the sample, the numbers don’t sound large, but these samples were over a short period of time and if you extrapolate that over a longer period of time and the number of people trying to get into the country, the results are concerning.” http://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/highlights-of-auditor-general-michael-ferguson-s-report-1.1561040
Useless Minister of Public Safety Steven Blaney said his government will accept the AG’s recommendations.”I have asked and can confirm that both CBSA and the RCMP are implementing…the findings and recommendations the Office of the Auditor General,” and who believes these liars, I do not.. RCMP still cannot say for sure what percentage of people get nabbed when they try to sneak across the border between regular ports of entry.
The Canada Border Services Agency and the RCMP need to tighten border security work and take steps to better measure how effective they are at keeping illegals out. “However, our audit found that the controls are not working as intended at and between ports of entry,” she said. “We recommended that the (CBSA) and RCMP collect and use information on the performance of their border controls, so that they know the extent to which controls are working, at which locations and what needs to be improved.”http://blogs.windsorstar.com/2013/11/26/too-many-criminals-still-getting-past-canadas-border-security-audit-says/
Really the RCMP should focus on their jobs a little more instead of the political theatre they are so often engaged.
Why doesn’t The RCMP admit that more than a few RCMP rogues might just be complicit with facilitating crime at the border? Including neglecting to record data about it. We need the corruption cleaned up!
” Sounds like some Canadian officials are complicit with these border breaches. Maybe start by putting under secret surveillance those RCMP who neglect to record data. Then check out who among police are not only neglecting to keep records but who also record falsehoods about what happens. You might be surprised just how much of that is going on in police services, not just RCMP but provincial and municipal police as well. Two officers, separate police forces, each told me they are keeping two sets of records, one for the official record and one to rely on in the event they are ever required to bear witness about what is really happening. One of them said she keeps the second record in a safe she bolted to the floor at her home.:”
According to the audit, the Canada Border Services Agency has made “little progress” in terms of its monitoring of so-called “lookouts”: individuals or shipments headed for Canada that intelligence has determined may pose a threat. http://o.canada.com/news/national/auditor-general-border-security-cause-for-concern/
Dangerous people have slipped into Canada because of insufficient border controls, according to a report by the auditor general. The audit raised concerns about the RCMP’s success in intercepting illegal migrants between ports of entry.http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/11/26/auditor-general-report-finds-high-risk-individuals-slipped-into-canada-because-of-insufficient-border-controls/
Ferguson also slammed the Mounties for how they monitor efforts to stop illegal Canada-U.S. border crossings between ports of entry. In an audit of cases from 2011 to 2013, the RCMP intercepted only half of the illegal land border crosses, and about 80% of the marine crossings. http://www.torontosun.com/2013/11/26/auditor-generals-report-ag-raises-alarm-over-lax-border-controls
Useless Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney said his department will work with the CBSA and the RCMP to see how they can improve the exchange of information. http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/auditor-general-concerned-about-food-and-rail-safety-border-security-
“Unfortunately, Conservatives have become so mired in scandal, and so focused on their well-connected friends, that they are neglecting their basic responsibilities. Their attempts to cut corners are putting Canadians at risk.”

Look the RCMP even had known for years specifics details by wire tapping about the Corruption in the Quebec city halls and they next still did nothing good about it.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/?s=rcmp
Yes the RCMP again have lost much more respect over the past two years as well as embarrassing Canada again world-wide. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/07/20/canadas-police-forces/
Speeding is not the main cause of car accidents, impaired driving is, but too many cops are alcoholics it seems who wrongfully do sympathize with drunks and as a result do not arrest drunks all year .. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/07/18/we-all-do-know-it-is-merely-the-tip-of-a-large-iceberg/
Fire the bad cops And don’t try to give us all the crap that any bad police officers can be next still retrained, reformed .. the police themselves tend not to believe that any of the bad guys can be reformed
As the RCMP deny all this, they continue to tap my phone, monitor my posts, emails?

Be sure your sins will find you out and the reputation also will suffer . You bought and used an illegal drug
While ones’ admission of alcohol use, marijuana use, dependency on pain killers, or even snorting cocaine maybe, could often be still ridden out supposedly but not hidden, but still done not without any negative personal consequences, or leads to the usage of more bad drugs even, even the usage of crack cocaine which is very serious and costly for all.. .
You do the crime you alone pay the time or the cost of treatment is still a fact of life. It is naïve to expect others to help you or they will pay the costs of your treatment
Crack cocaine is by far the most commonly used street-drug in Canada. It causes incredible physical suffering to those who are dependent. It destroys families and erodes social supports leading to isolation, hopelessness and homelessness. It is linked to criminal activity and violence.
There are many thousands of people across Canada who use crack — many on a daily basis, the underclass of Canadian society. Crack cocaine is by far the most commonly used street-drug in Canada. It causes incredible physical suffering to those who are dependent. It destroys families and erodes social supports leading to isolation, hopelessness and homelessness. It is linked to criminal activity and violence. Even among drug users, “crack heads” are considered at the bottom rung of the drug use ladder. The bad crack People are to be avoided and thus are also demonized.
Although Crack is cheap, readily available, it is immediately habit-forming. It is a powerful euphoric agent that can dampen the pain and make troubles disappear.but is short-lived and within minutes the one’s depressions and troubles haven’t disappeared, but there is an intense desire to use crack and do it over and over again..
The vast majority of crack smokers in Canada are extremely marginalized, living in poverty, and spend a lot of their time chasing after crack.
The treatment of crack is costly and thus for the most part crack usage is very much untreatable and a serious personal and financial threat to our cities.
So crack users are a menace to society and now criminal punishment is the only way to curb the problem. The sole response has been to use the criminal justice system to seek out the dealers and the users and to round them up and put them in jail. There is no reasonable alternative approach towards the who got people started on crack in the first place.
Now we are not all callous and vindictive, but because of the impractical extremely high for engagement, care, treatment, and crack recovery treatment is unavailable generally
Instead of Society now confronting the health and social problems associated with crack use in Canadian cities, we have rightfully left this to a less costly approach, to law enforcement that continue to fill up jails with these people who are addicted and mentally ill.
It is true that our tools to manage, reduce and eliminate crack use are very limited. Research has shown that the psychological dependency on crack cocaine is very intense and that simply insisting on abstinence rarely works. There are currently no pharmacologic interventions available and programs that offer even the most basic psychotherapy are limited.
We also do know that at the very least people who are using crack must get out of the environment where they are using in order to avoid the cues that perpetuate their use. That itself is an unreasonable expectation..
A costly new research into alternative approaches to the vast cocaine dependency is not sustainable. No one can suggest that bad drug use can be managed through tough law enforcement but any alternative is financially unfeasible.
Because of the costs, lack of money, our politicians, policy-makers, and even health care professionals, have turned a blind eye to the personal problem of crack cocaine.
With crack cocaine and all of its serious health and social consequences, costs in full public view, what else can the user expect now? Pay the costs for using it.. Yes even the doctors can lie to you and say they can help you, but not if you do not have the money to pay for their services.
One here reaps what one sows.. so what is strange about that?
People in leadership office do have to face higher penalties as an example now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included are always to be exemplary in behavior, conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary judged, prosecuted for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks.
Toronto mayor Rob . Ford is a suspected alcoholic too, and is also a well-connected person, pals with Stephen Harper and Jim Flaherty, who also like to consume alcohol…
Jesus is the only successful treatment for alcohol and bad drug usage.. but no one can force you to use his services..

It is amazing how new testament Bible ignorant persons falsely dispute the facts about Jews, Israel and Messianic Jews.. The New Covenant, the New testament, has replaced the Old Covenant, the old Testament.. the New Covenant is not a continuation of the old but it’s substitute. Judaism, plus JEWS are now dead to God and is Satanic! “…I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” —Revelation 2:9
Now after King Solomon’s death they split into two completely separate and independent kingdoms – the southern kingdom of ‘Judah,’ consisting of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, with part of Levi since the Levites were distributed among the other tribes (1 Kings 12:23) with their capital at Jerusalem, and the northern kingdom of ‘Israel,’ consisting of the other ten tribes (Reuben, Simeon, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Ephraim and Manasseh (Joseph was divided into Ephraim and Manasseh), with part of Levi since the Levites were distributed among the other tribes), with their capital up in Samaria.
“Israel and Judah were never united again… Surprisingly, they even fought wars against each other from time to time… A very important fact that many do not realize is that Judah, that is, the Jewish people of today, are only one of the tribes of Israel – while all Jews are Israelites, not all Israelites are Jews.
“Because of their forsaking of Him, God permitted the two kingdoms to be destroyed. First, the northern kingdom of Israel was gradually conquered by the Assyrians,… and by 721 B.C. they had practically all been taken into exile to Assyria (2 Kings 17:1-23). The vast majority of them never returned, and have become known as the ‘Lost Ten Tribes of Israel.’
“Then, about 135 years later, by 586 B.C., the southern kingdom of Judah was completely conquered by the Babylonians,… and the people of Judah were taken into captivity to Babylon. The original Temple of God in Jerusalem was destroyed at that time… The people of the southern kingdom of Judah however did return after the Babylonians fell to the Persians…, and their descendants have become the Jewish people of today – but that return in the time of Nehemiah, or the founding of the modern state of Israel in 1948, were not the fulfillment of the many prophecies dealing with the future (as the context of the prophecies clearly show) gathering of all of Israel, Israel and Judah.”
The designation “Jew” belonged exclusively to the southern kingdom of Judah, the very word “Jew” having been derived from “Judah.” And so technically, only the kingdom of Judah was “Jewish” and the other tribes of Israel have no right to call themselves Jews. That this distinction was understood in the Old Testament is seen in II Kings 16:5-6 (KJV) where the people of Israel and the King of Syria fought against the “Jews” of the southern kingdom.
It is ALSO a documented fact that when the Ten Tribes of Joseph, known as “Israel or Ephraim,” were taken into “captivity” in c.800 BCE by Assyria, they ceased to exist as a separate people because they lost their use of their Aramaic/Hebrew language and their sense of Israelite tribal identity. Their Conquests by the Greeks, Romans had helped to further this.. http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2012/02/07/jews-israel-arabs-and-jesus-christ-the-bible/
In the New Testament, in His message to the Church at Smyrna, the Lord Jesus Christ referred to a “synagogue of Satan” as “them which say they are Jews, and are not.” In other words, there was a synagogue of Israel that was not Jewish:
“I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” (Rev. 2:9-10)
The present “Synagogue of Satan” which is Israel must not be confused with the “Remnant” of Jews, who will receive the Lord Jesus Christ at His Second Coming and be saved by Him. The Synagogue of Satan are an occult power elite which, the Zionists driven Jews having rejected Jesus Christ as the Messiah of Israel, conspire to substitute another messiah made in the image of their master, Satan, and to establish a world kingdom under Satan. The Synagogue of Satan claims Jewish descent, but does not fit God’s definition of a Jew, either in the Old Testament or the New: “But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.” (Romans 2:29) the Synagogue of Satan have conspired to eliminate all people, whether Jew or Gentile, who stand in the way of their world kingdom. Through the centuries, the Synagogue of Satan have, by means of false identities, infiltrated Gentile institutions where they act as agents provocateurs—undercover agents who provoke violence and beget scandals, which are used to bring reproach upon Jesus Christ and His Church. About the Jewish Babylom “Early in the 19th century the Pope came to the Rothschilds to borrow money. The Rothschilds were very friendly with the Pope, causing one journalist to sarcastically say ‘Rothschild has kissed the hand of the Pope… Order has been reestablished.’ The Rothschilds in fact over time were entrusted with the bulk of the Vatican’s wealth. The Jewish Ency., vol. 2, p. 497 states, ‘It is a somewhat curious sequel to the attempt to set up a Catholic competitor to the Rothschilds that at the present time (1905) the latter are guardians of the papal treasure.’ Researcher Eustace Mullins writes that the Rothschilds took over all the financial operations of the worldwide Catholic Church in 1823. Today the large banking and financial business of the Catholic Church is an extensive system interlocked with the Rothschilds and the rest of the International Banking system.” (Top 13 Illuminati Bloodlines, p.154)” During the Middle Ages, the infiltration and conquest of Christendom was achieved by two methods. The Inquisition, which started in Spain in 1478, forced multitudes of Jews to renounce Judaism and to embrace Catholicism; these “converts” were called Conversos. Conversos typically went through the motions of the Roman Catholic religion, but remained Jews inwardly and practiced their Jewish rites in the privacy of their homes. Other Jews, called Marranos (swine), feigned conversion to Christianity and practiced Roman Catholicism outwardly, while practicing Judaism, or Cabalism, privately. A number of Marranos took positions in the clergy. The motive of Conversos was self-preservation; the Marranos, destruction of the Church and all things Christian. The result of these parallel operations was the Jewish occupation of the Roman Catholic Church and the false Jewish Zionist transformation into “MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”
About the Jewish Babylom According to the Jewish Encyclopedia, Lord Nathan Mayer Rothschild became “Guardian of the Papal Treasures” and the Vatican banker in 1823. Thus, the terrible power of money and religion were finally brought together. “Early in the 19th century the Pope came to the Rothschilds to borrow money. The Rothschilds were very friendly with the Pope, causing one journalist to sarcastically say ‘Rothschild has kissed the hand of the Pope… Order has been reestablished.’ The Rothschilds in fact over time were entrusted with the bulk of the Vatican’s wealth.

November 2, 2013
Canadian Federal Conservatives Delegates In Calgary debated hundreds of new and future Conservative policies but the policy resolutions passed included:
– Harassing Telephone Calls , Digital communications, including text messages, would be considered harassing telephone calls under the Criminal Code.
—The government will resist domestic or international pressure to delegitimize firearms ownership
—Those convicted of more than one serious crime would serve their sentences consecutively, something the government is already looking at doing.
—Allowing faith-based organizations to bar groups whose views they disagree with from using their facilities.
-Euthanasia – The policy resolution seeks to reaffirm the party’s position against euthanasia.
- Canada’s Broadcasting System -Canada’s national broadcaster is once again slated to have their funding cut. If passed, the policy would see the CBC lose all public funding, which the government believes would reduce unfair competition held by private companies.
- A motion condemning sex-selective abortion passed with overwhelming support among delegates
- Sexual Exploitation in Canada -The policy would reject the increasingly commonplace idea of legalizing prostitution, and condemns human trafficking. It also aims to create a national strategy to criminalize the above actions in Canada.
- Freshwater Fish Marketing Act -Fisherman would have more freedom to sell their products if this resolution to repeal the Freshwater Fish Marketing Act ever made it into government legislation. The move would end the current monopoly held by the Freshwater Fish Marketing Corporation.
- Public Service Excellence- This policy calls on the government to make sure public servants benefits and pensions are in line with the private sector. This would likely result in reduced benefits allocated to public servants.
- Labour – the Conservatives want to eliminate mandatory union memberships. According to the policy, forced financial contributions limit the freedom of Canadians.
- Rights of Workers -The policy would give union members the power to decide where their money is being sent. Right now, a portion of their dues are used to support political or media dues, something the policy would allow union members to opt out of.
“Among the new Conservative party policies:
- Canadians should not be forced to join unions and pay dues. This is the start of an effort by Conservatives to persuade Harper to introduce a contentious “right-to-work law,” similar to those in some U.S. states, that critics say are a thinly-veiled attempt to destroy unions.
- Federal public service unions and those in federally-regulated industries should tell their members how much of their dues go to political donations, media organizations and other political activism. Union members should be allowed to “opt out” of the portion of their dues that go to such activities.
- Federal public service pensions should be brought in line with those in the public sector, likely meaning they are either slashed now or the rate of future growth is cut. Treasury Board President Tony Clement spoke in favour of the motion and promised it will be an approach he soon takes to the bargaining table to seek concessions from federal unions.
“For too long, there has been this major gap in wages and benefits between the public and the private sector,” said Clement. “This is not sustainable, it’s not right, it’s not conservative, and it’s not in the public interest.”
- The Conservative Party will not support any legislation to legalize euthanasia or assisted suicide. This was a motion that sparked strong debate on either side, with one delegate warning that legalized euthanasia would give doctors “the right to directly and intentionally cause your death.”
- The party “condemns discrimination against girls through gender selection” – which means it opposes abortion in cases where the parents don’t want to give birth to a baby girl. British Columbia MP Mark Warawa, who put forward the motion, was blocked by Harper’s team on Parliament Hill when he tried to discuss it in the Commons earlier this year. But Conservative delegates passed his motion easily.
“Right now in the world there are over 200 million missing girls because of the practice of using ultrasounds to find out if it’s a boy or girl,” Warawa told delegates. “Girls have equal value as boys, we should not be discriminating against them in any form.”
- The party pledges that a “Conservative government recognizes the legitimacy of private ownership of firearms and will rest any domestic or international pressure to the contrary.” After the last election, the government moved to kill the long-gun registry, and more recently, it drew sharp criticism in September when it failed to sign an international treaty to regulate the global arms trade.
- The party, whose members have often complained of bias in the CBC, believes the best way to “control” the network is for the government to establish “distinct” budgets for the TV and radio arms of the corporation.
- To properly punish criminals who are convicted of more than one “serious crime”, they should serve their sentences “consecutively rather than concurrently” so that they would spend more time in jail.”
