Cleaning one’s own house first is in order even here too..  Too many McGill administrators, doctors are already known to be bad managers, money hungry while the university too readily takes our tax dollars now too and too allow falsely often abuses us too.. McGill is already very unpopular amongst the majority of Quebec French speaking persons. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/03/02/mcgill-university-montreal/

Not much of a surprise? The tip of the iceberg is being revealed only as  the overall depth of corruption will take much more time apparently to uncover, corruptions that likely permeates the whole project. Birds of feathers tend to flock together. And no one should tell us that  these initial suspected persons, now  were even  just isolated individuals acting on their own without the vast help and knowledge of any others now too. Higher education never insures one’s good moral standings.  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/26/mcgill-administrators-likley-run-their-hospitals-the-same-way/

The McGill administrators in reality very likely run their hospitals and patients the same way.. very poorly and inadequate. At least that has been my own rightful complaints often here too http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/26/mcgill-administrators-likley-run-their-hospitals-the-same-way/

“Now we have the developing case of another Harper appointment that raises questions about the PM’s judgment. The PM appointed Porter to health advisory boards and then, oddly, recommended to the Privy Council Office that Porter be named to the Security and Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC). Harper’s record for associating with  undesireables just keeps getting better and better. Now we have the developing case of another Harper appointment that raises questions about the PM’s judgment.  The PM appointed Porter to health advisory boards and then, oddly, recommended to the Privy Council Office that Porter be named to the Security and Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC).Less than two years later, Porter found himself chair of our spy services oversight committee, a position in which he had access to all of Canada’s intelligence secrets. He was appointed to the Board of Air Canada and made a Queen’s Privy Councillor.  Porter also was connected to self-described arms-dealer and former (alleged) Israeli intelligence officer Ari Ben-Menashe. The two were involved in a dubious business deal involving a $120 million investment by Russia in “port development” in Africa.  It turned out that Porter was also claiming to be ambassador plenipotentiary of Sierra Leone, one of the most corrupt countries on earth — an obvious conflict with his SIRC role.”  http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/story/2013/02/27/mtl-mcgill-hospital-arthur-porter-arrest-warrant.html

And former adviser to PM Stephen Harper  had “grave doubts about putting people in jail” because of  child pornography    http://www.calgaryherald.com/Wildrose+dumps+campaign+manager+Flanagan+over+child+pornography+comments/8029677/story.html …

Politicians who land in hot water need help managing the crisis and protecting their reputations. Lucky for them, the Conservative Sen. Mike Duffy ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE TOO MANY BAD APPOINTMENTS OF PM STEPHEN HARPER, Duffy over the past several weeks, offered a master class in how to get through the worst of it AND NOT IN A NICE WAY TOO.  Lie, Belittle, Blame. Dodge, Deflect, Flee, Admit very little..  as clearly he is learning from his boss the PM.. And were all previously promised a better Government and this now is it?

Montreal Mayor and Former city manager named as being corrupt at at the Charbonneau Commission inquiry

Remember when some and many others falsely  said they and the others were not guilty at the Montreal City Hall

pitchfork-and-boots
“ Michel Lalonde, the head of a prominent Montreal engineering firm, testifies at the Charbonneau Commission  that Robert Abdallah, The head of Montreal’s executive committee, the director of its public works department, the man in charge of financing the city’s most powerful political party – and now the former city manager  was involved in a system of collusion that allowed select companies to win municipal public works contracts in exchange for major cash donations and illegal kickbacks. 

Michel Lalonde, he also confirmed that he handed a cheque for $10,000 to Union Montreal political staffer Martin Dumont at a fundraising breakfast in 2004. The event was held in support of the “yes” campaign during the city’s 2004 demerger referendum, and then-Montreal mayor Gérald Tremblay was in attendance, Lalonde said. During his own time on the stand, Dumont maintained that he was given similar cheques from a number of engineering firms at the breakfast.

The engineer  Michel Lalonde, said his company gave thousands of dollars in illegal cash kickbacks to officials in Ahuntsic, Saint Leonard, Rivière des Prairies and Montreal North, among others.

At one point, Lalonde said, Ahuntsic borough manager Éric Lachapelle asked him for Montreal Canadiens season tickets – a request he quickly granted.

The cash donations always flowed more freely when Montreal was on the verge of a municipal election, Lalonde testified. In the months prior to the 2005 municipal race, for instance, he said RDP mayor Cosmo Maciocia asked him for $60,000 to support his campaign. Lalonde claimed he handed it over, as did several other firms.”  

http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Former+city+manager+named+inquiry/7883151/story.html
  • Lalonde said he gave $60,000 to former  Riviere-des-Prairies-Pointe-aux-Trembles mayor Cosmo Maciocia at his  request.
  • When Maciocia left politics, his successor, Joe Magri, also received $15  000.
  • Lalonde testified that the borough of Ahunstic-Cartierville also sought  payoffs and Canadiens season tickets as the price of doing business in the  borough.
  • In Saint-Leonard, former Liberal MNA and borough mayor Michel Bissonnet  apparently asked and received $2000.
  • In Montreal East, Mayor Yvon Labrosse received $5000 in illegal  contributions, Lalonde claimed.
  • In Montreal North, Lalonde said he sent $2000 to Mayor Gilles Deguire, a  former police man.
  • He also said he gave $1000 to Ile Bizard Mayor Richard Bélanger.

Lalonde said cash-hungry Union Montreal fundraisers still wanted more,  however, so Lalonde was forced to give $20,000 to the cash-strapped 2005 World  Aquatics Championships in exchange for contracts.

Lalonde’s payoffs extended well beyond Gerald Tremblay’s Union Montreal,  however, and beginning in 2008, he started paying attention to the opposition,  held by Vision Montreal.

Lalonde claims he was approached by a Vision Montreal fundraiser in 2008,  and eventually gave $25 000 cash to Benoit Labonté, who at the time was running  with Louise Harel.

Education does not insure morality Nor are professionals better persons

Marois Quebec government’s proposal to create a new watchdog to oversee universities  and Hospitals now as well is valid, natural.. some of the biggest crooks are even the educated folks..  and our Doctors, Nurses, Hospitals and the Police, RCMP are also now very poorly managed too ALL AT THE TAXPAYER’S EXPENSES.

THE NEWS MEDIA IS DETAILING THE CORRUPTION FOR DECADES OF EVEN THE ENGINEERS.. NOW I HAVE BEEN FOR DECADES WRITING ABOUT THE MUCH TOO MANY UNACCEPTABLE WHITE COLLARED CRIMES, ABUSES BY THE PROFESSIONALS.. EVEN WHERE THEIR OWN SELF REGULATION TENDS TO BE MERE MASTURBATION AND DO NOT BELIEVE THE LIES ALL OF THE WRONG DOINGS IT IS IN QUEBEC MOSTLY, IT IS CANADA WIDE   http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/?s=pROFESSIONALS

“MONTREAL – Testimony by the head of a local engineering firm at the  Charbonneau Commission this week has seriously tarnished the reputation of the  engineering profession in Quebec, the director of the province’s professional  order of engineers said Friday. André Rainville, executive director of the 63,000-member Ordre des ingénieurs  du Québec, said he was shocked by engineer Michel Lalonde’s testimony Thursday  that implicated at least a dozen major engineering-consulting firms in the  province in a corrupt system of price-fixing and illegal funding of former mayor  Gérald Tremblay’s political party. Other firms named by Lalonde include: Dessau, CIMA+, Tecsult, SM, BPR, Roche,  HBA Teknika, Claulac, and Leroux, Beaudoin, Hurens & Associés. “

CLEARLY A VAST AMOUNT OF SENIOR, MANAGERIAL QUEBEC ENGINEERS HAVE BEEN CONFIRMED TO BE A SIGNIFICANT PART OF THE QUEBEC CORRUPTIONS, ALSO NOW  IT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO KNOW FROM WHAT UNIVERSITY THEY GRADUATED.. 

“The steady stream of revelations before the Charbonneau inquiry makes it easy  to become bleary or blasé. But this week’s testimony deserves extra attention.  It contains the most disturbing disclosures yet.Here’s why.

Until now, we’ve learned that systemic collusion and corruption in public  works contracts have existed mostly at the level of the Mafia and those  construction companies whose business is generally confined to Quebec.

What Michel  Lalonde told the Charbonneau Commission on Thursday broadens our  understanding of systemic crime among contractors, and alarmingly so. He opened  what is not so much a can of worms as a barrel of snakes.

Lalonde, president of Génius Conseil (better known under its former name,  Groupe Séguin), served in effect as the coordinator of collusion among all —  repeat, all — of Quebec’s largest engineering-consulting firms. They include not  just SNC-Lavalin, often called the flagship of Québec Inc., but also CIMA+,  Dessau, Génivar, Roche, Tecsult and several others. They often subcontract work  to the previously implicated construction companies. Their leaders regularly  make the society pages,

Lalonde himself was not one of the big boys. That his company was smallish  made him, he explained, the cartel’s ideal emissary in dealing with Montreal  city hall — he could be relatively impartial. Between 2004 and 2009, he said, he  worked with the city’s then public works director (Robert Marcil), the then  treasurer of the ruling party, Union Montreal (Bernard Trépanier), and the then  executive-committee chair (Frank Zampino) to steer contracts to the appropriate  member of the cartel. Bribes would then go the supposedly neutral  contract-selection committee, composed of civil servants, so that it would  ratify the choice. Depending on its size, each cartel member allegedly  contributed either $100,000 or $200,000 in cash to Union Montreal in the 2005  election year, for a total of $1.3 million in illegal donations. The firms would  also kick back three per cent of their contracts to the party, Lalonde said (as  previous witnesses have said the construction companies also did).

To be sure, this isn’t the first time executives of these high-class  companies have been incriminated for local bid-rigging. Last fall, for example,  the  past president and a past vice-president of SNC-Lavalin were charged with  fraud in connection with their company’s supervision of the McGill  University Health Centre’s superhospital. In 2011, police  also charged two Roche executives for fraud in suburban Boisbriand. Here, according to Lalonde, we have companies representing the upper crust of  Quebec’s corporate world that:  Subvert local democracy by illegally swamping a political party’s electoral  war chest, with the result that when that party gains power it is beholden to  these corporations. Corrupt not only Montreal’s political structure but also the senior ranks of  Montreal’s supposedly neutral civil service. (True, earlier testimony has shown  that the  Mafia and construction companies had corrupted several civil servants,  including Gilles Surprenant and Luc Leclerc, but the elite cartel allegedly  bribed their boss, Marcil.)”  Read more:  http://www.montrealgazette.com/Henry+Aubin+Inquiry+opens+barrel+snakes/7874233/story.html#ixzz2J5IMUkgs

 Also “two class-action lawsuits in Ontario and Quebec that are seeking more than $1  billion on behalf of disgruntled shareholders. The suits allege that SNC-Lavalin violated securities law by misrepresenting  that it had adequate controls and procedures to ensure accurate disclosure and  financial reporting.”

LOOK ALSO NOW  HOW USELESS THE POLICE, RCMP AND THE GOVERNMENTS HAVE BEEN IN ALL OF THIS TOO

Education does not insure morality Nor are professionals generally  better persons over others as any wise persons knows that there are plenty of immoral cops, realtors, lawyers, nurses, doctors now too. When you criticize openly the  bad persons , especially bad cops, doctors, nurses, professionals you tend to get a false denial, remark in response  like you are crazy, you need professional help. They still really  cannot face the reality there are things in their life that need serious, drastic changes. These people in denial are the ones who often need professional help for their own short comings, sickness. Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about their own unacceptable acts.  Corruptions occurs now Not just in Churches, amongst the police, politicians, civil and public servants. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/?s=professionals

.

NOW REALLY WHAT DOES WE “ENSURE OUR POLICIES AND PROCEDURES RELATED TO CONTRACTING AND PROCUREMENT REFLECT BEST PRACTICES” MEAN? WHEN IT IS UNENFORCED TOO OFTEN. AND BEST PRACTICES FOR WHOM? THE HOSPITAL, THE DIRECTOR, THE GOVERNMENT, OR THE PEOPLE? OR THE CROOKS STILL? ALL THIS STILL IT MEANS NOTHING IF YOU ARE STILL STEALING AND COOKING THE BOOKS LIKE MANY OTHERS ARE DOING? IT STILL DOESN’T MEAN THAT THE PROCESS HAS INTEGRITY OR IS DEVOID OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES? WHEN IN REALITY NO ONE FALSELY REPORTS THE CRIMINAL; ACTIVITIES STILL AND WHITE COLLARED CRIME IS STILL COVERED UP NO ONE GOES TO JAIL..

Promised past Accountability and Transparency were mere election gimmicks now too.. A bad Liberal is just as bad as a bad Conservative always as well. So who is being fooled by all this? The liars do only mostly fool  themselves as to who and what they really are.

So a grey cloud also hangs over the McGill University Health Centre, a  symbol of the anglophone community’s ongoing place in Quebec. Duhaime’s fraud  charge involves his successful effort to land the contract for the MUHC’s  $1.3-billion hospital.

” Since he left Montreal in late 2011, Dr. Porter has become a lightning rod for criticism – a dramatic shift from how he was treated for most of his seven years in Quebec, where he held several prominent public and corporate posts. In 2008, Prime Minister Stephen Harper appointed him to the civilian committee that investigates complaints about Canada’s spy agency, CSIS. In 2010, Mr. Harper made Dr. Porter the chair of the committee. Now he is the target of three lawsuits, all claiming that he has defaulted on loan payments that were made to him while he was in Montreal. The Quebec government has also released a report accusing him of allowing the McGill University Health Centre to slip into financial disarray and has assigned the network of six hospitals a special financial overseer, a move the government says is one step short of trusteeship. “

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/police-zero-in-on-mystery-company-at-centre-of-montreal-hospital-scandal/article7893625/?

HOUSE CLEANING IS STILL VERY MUCH IN ORDER        

DON’T BE STUPID AND BELIEVE ALL THE LYING SPINS AS TO WHY IT TAKES SO LONG TO INVESTIGATE THE BAD COPS or bad professionals, bad civil and public servants..
.
Have you also noticed how the Canadian Federal Conservative government even  and it’s watch dog the RCMP are undeniably hesitant to prosecute their provincial counterparts for wrong doings? Tax evasions, citizen abuse, tax payer’s money abuses

The City of Montreal’s new fraud squad

mtl

Follow the Money trail.. One of the oldest rule of journalism and why is that? Well according to Jesus himself now the love of money is the root of all evil.. and so it seems many of the politicians have entered into politics not to serve the good citizens but rather to try to get rich..

Montreal Mayor Michael Applebaum had recently now announced the creation of the $3-million-a-year unit that will investigate the majority of contracts awarded by the city.  But the Quebec Minister of Public Security Stéphane Bergeron says he was never even firstly consulted by the City of Montreal over the decision to create the city’s new fraud squad but only informed after the fact. And he rightfully  is concerned that the new unit set up to root out corruption in the city will firstly only duplicate the work of the province’s existing anti-corruption unit. The Charbonneau commission also now resumes public hearings   into corruption and collusion at the municipal level before tackling provincial government contracts. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/quebec-surprised-skeptical-of-montreals-new-fraud-squad/article7450622/

For decades undeniably, at least 50 years white collared corruption has been wrongfully going rampant in the city of Montreal unchecked and the Montreal Police force, the Quebec Police force, RCMP  the past Quebec provincial Government, the federal governments, all had  failed to deal with these matters now adequately. After the new PQ Government started to address the issue .  Next finally  the City of Montreal decision to create the city’s new fraud squad  and even not to inform firstly even the Quebec Government is unacceptable. Now what is the real reasons now for the creation of this new  police force unit rather, the city of Montreal wants a heads up first of the police find anything so they can what bury it again? Or is the city of Montreal still hiding  anything’s it does not want the Quebec government to find out about? This seems very likely..  and yeah I know they all will still claim they are not guilty of anything.. like they have the last decades. So What!

.

None of the abuse of the taxpayers money is ever acceptable and any major abuse should not be only grounds for one’s dismissal from one’s job but it should also be a criminal, jailing offence always too….

November 30, 2012

This type of taxpayers money abuse has been ongoing for decades in many different places too

And many had  thought the Liberals alone had much  soul searching to do but even with the Liberal Party collapses but it  is just as bad with ex MP Gilles Duceppe Federal BQ Party or the Union Montreal Party.

Union Montreal  offers a blanket “no comment”  on any Corruptions  allegations concerning the party’s   response to a now public report that the same  party had charged the  public for the salary and expenses of the  clearly corrupted City of Montreal   Bernard Trépanier, who has been dubbed  “Mr. Three Per Cent” amid allegations of taking a cut of municipal public works  contracts, while he worked as director of financing for the party from 2004 to  2006. The party, which was led by the now resigned, ex former mayor Gérald Tremblay, had now claimed the  salaries, meals, parking, mileage, gasoline and cellular phone bills, plus much more  of a  handful of party workers, including Trépanier, for reimbursement as research and  secretarial expenses from the city Of Montreal  treasury.

Now I have reported this same type of events even  25 years as I like to visits the local politicians directly at their offices, and I had clearly firsthand noted that while they all had support staff, many of our representatives were not working on behalf of the local Citizens directly but too many were doing party work as I heard and saw firsthand, such as the Ex Prime Minister Paul Martin, ex MNA Liberal Monique Forget even the Ex PQ leader Gilles Duceppe  said he now was staying out of active politics to “defend his integrity and rebuild his reputation” after a Montreal newspaper reported he used public funds to pay Bloc employees. Duceppe’s party paid its director general Gilbert Gardner with parliamentary funds for upwards of seven years. This is an apparent violation of House rules, which state that such funds must be used for parliamentary, not partisan, ends. It also seems that  Duceppe’s office paid the spouse of his chief of staff and allowed her to use parliamentary resources as she produced a book commemorating the Bloc’s 20 years in Ottawa.

The Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs (PROC) had itself said  it will seek legal advice on whether the Bloc broke parliamentary rules, and whether they have to reimburse the funds, acts for which he was found guilty but falsely no punishment was merited, likely cause they all do  the same things..

Gilles Duceppe’s Spending Misused House Resources, Secretive Committee Rules Former Bloc Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe was wrong to use parliamentary resources to pay the salary of a partisan political staffer, a secretive Commons committee ruled . But the Board of Internal Economy also determined that it won’t be possible to reimburse taxpayers because the bylaws weren’t clear enough at the time the money was spent. “The board believes that the use Mr. Duceppe made of the House resources that were available to him was inappropriate,” the Commons governing body said in a statement. “However . . . the board finds it impossible to take any disciplinary action. Still, the Conservatives are calling on either Duceppe himself or his party to pay back the money.” http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2012/11/27/gilles-duceppe-spending-board-of-internal-economy_n_2200406.html

   The past inference of the Bloc’s campaign slogan  —“A clean party in Quebec”—was difficult to miss: everyone else was dirty. Not coincidentally, support for his Federal BQ Party declined this..  Duceppe was thus as a direct result forced to renounce any PQ leadership intentions in the wake of the BQ staffing revelations. Ex PQ leader Gilles Duceppe too here he even  won’t forget me, I sat in his Constituent office and asked him directly how he could use taxpayers money to promote separation from Canada, and I told him face to face also he was the worst MP I had ever encountered, he next asked me to leave..

Now I saw the same type of corruptions firsthand too in Alberta now with the Conservatives.. None of it was, is acceptable still too.. None.. and they all need still to   pay back the taxpayer’s money..

Will EVEN THE QUEBEC CORRUPTION inquiry actually change the apparent culture of corruption that seems to exists, in many places, not just  in the awarding of some public contracts? And has any valid  message been sent – and understood – by those who have been stealing our tax money? No, Of course not.. It is an undeniable fact that unless all of the criminals feel real negative consequences like real jail time.. they will not stop trying to get richer ..

QUEBEC is continualy DIRTY

STOP ALL OF THE ABUSE OF TAXPAYER’S MONIES NOW!

.

It has been an undeniable known fact that for decades and decades too many of the Quebec’s politicians and all of the related political parties now have wrongfully been too soft on crime, criminals even  in the municipal. provincial, federal governments, and above all even amongst themselves, and even at the professional levels.. We have had perversity involved even in building a Montreal Hospital, even in the Mayor’s own executive office. Bad management of resources and personnel is an unacceptable  sad fact of life here even in Hospitals, and with the Police, not just in the governments, and no one cared to deal with it. Tax evasion is an ongoing fact of life too.

MONTREAL—Montreal city council approved a series of projects worth $36 million on Monday night, including three contracts to firms connected to construction magnate Tony Accurso. Deemed “urgent” by the mayor, the work was approved despite strong resistance from the opposition. “It was a heartbreaking ethical dilemma,” said Olivier Lapierre, the spokesman for Louise Harel. “Some of those companies have been recognized guilty of fraud.” At the city council meeting on Monday, Harel objected vehemently to the votes being brought to the floor despite a provincial law requiring public bodies to stop doing work with firms found guilty of fraud.“We cannot accept being forced to vote knowing that certain legal moves were used to skirt the law,” said Harel on the council floor. According to Bill 35, the province’s construction regulator is required to strip firms of the right to bid for contracts after directors are found guilty of corruption. To circumvent the law, companies either remove offending directors or operate at arms-length from parties found guilty of fraud.One of Quebec’s richest men, Accurso has been arrested by both provincial and federal investigators on two separate occasions over the past six months. Operating over a dozen companies, the Surete du Quebec has identified a complex structure whereby Accurso indirectly runs companies registered in the names of family members.The Vision Montreal leader called for the mayor to join her in asking the provincial government to close the loophole that allowed for the contracts to go to Accurso-connected firms on Monday.According to Harel, Mayor Gerald Tremblay only complained about the loophole in June after a letter was sent from her office to Municipal Affairs Minister Laurent Lessard. “There is an urgency about contracts now, but the mayor was slow to move during the entire year,” said Lapierre. “Why did he wait?” http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/opposition-in-ethical-dilemma-as-three-contracts-voted-to-accurso-firms-1.923455

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.wordpress.com/2011/11/03/a-long-term-care-home-employee-faces-a-criminal-negligence-charge/
