The Oliphant inquiry is looking into the relationship between Mulroney and businessman Karlheinz Schreiber.
What Brian Mulroney had taken a very very large gift, alleged bribe, hundreds of thousands of Dollars from Karlheinz Schreiber and Mulroney had forgotten to declare it as an income on his income tax? Now other people associated with Brian Mulroney also have memory problems relating to vast amount of money they too had received.. and why is that??? I do get a big kick out of these inquiry watching how the weasels try to lie their way out of the apparent wrong doings they are being charged with.. Denials, denials, denials..
Fred Doucet “A former senior adviser to Brian Mulroney said he can’t remember writing three letters or receiving a fax regarding the purchase and delivery of Airbus planes to Air Canada. Fred Doucet, testifying at the federal inquiry into the business dealings between Karlheinz Schreiber and the former prime minister, said he had no recollection of any of the correspondence relating to Airbus that took place between 1992 and 1994. Of particular note is a fax that was sent to Doucet from Denis Biro, then Air Canada’s manager of investor relations, and a letter written by Doucet to Schreiber. Both are dated April 27, 1993, the same date that Mulroney received his first cash envelope from Schreiber at a hotel in Mirabel airport. Earlier, Doucet testified that he also can’t remember why he received $90,000 to lobby on behalf of a company controlled by Schreiber in 1988, more than a month after he had left government. Doucet also said he also couldn’t recall the details of requesting a waiver from the government that would allow him to engage in lobbying before the mandatory one-year cooling-off period for former government employees. Doucet had been employed by Schreiber to lobby the government on behalf of the Bear Head project — a plan for a light-armoured vehicle plant in Nova Scotia. Wolson asked Doucet about an invoice for “professional services” to Schreiber’s company Bitucan Holdings dated Nov. 2 1988. “What are you invoicing him for?” Wolson asked. Invoices followed by $90,000 cheques“. I have no recollection of the invoice. My presumption is that it was for services pursuant to the project,” he said.But Wolson pointed out that around the same time, invoices were sent to Bitucan Holdings in the exact same amount from: former Newfoundland premier Frank Moores, Gerry Doucet, Fred Doucet’s brother, and Gary Ouellet, a former chief of staff to a Conservative transport minister.“ Is that just a coincidence that everyone sends an invoice, within a few weeks of one another and cheques [are] issued for $90,000?” Wolson asked.“ I would have had no knowledge of when they were sending invoices or for what purpose, or for what amounts,” Doucet said.“And it just happens to be, of all numbers, it’s the same number that you send an invoice for. Everyone does,” Wolson said. Wolson also told the inquiry about a waiver Doucet received that allowed him to lobby the government shortly after he left.He would normally have been subject to a one-year cooling off period before being allowed to lobby any departments he had dealings with while in government.But Doucet had obtained an unusual waiver of the cooling-off provision in the federal ethics code at the time.“You asked for that waiver. It was one of the requests you had made,” Wolson said.“I have no recollection of asking for that,” Doucet said, adding that it’s possible he may have.Wolson suggested that had officials known Doucet “was involved with the Bear Head project in government that that waiver may not have occurred.“I don’t know that,” Doucet said. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2009/04/27/doucet-inquiry.html
IF THE TOO OFTEN DIRTY RCMP DID NOT LIKE THE JOB THEY SHOULD HAVE QUIT, AN OPTION EVERY ONE HAS BUT I MYSELF NOW HAVE RUN INTO DIRTY RCMP OFFICERS AT TWO DIFFERENT AIRPORTS, Vancouver, Winnipeg even DECADES AGO TOO.. AND MOST RCMP OFFICER THAT I HAD ENCOUNTERED ELSEWHERE WERE ALSO LIARS, THOSE IN Montreal, Calgary, Canmore TOO.. Reality – THE BAD RCMP PROBLEM IS NOT JUST ONE ISOLATED CASE.. IT HAS EXISTED THE LAST 4 DECADES IN MY WITNESS.
It’s not a knock on Kenney to say that he’s a complete political animal; there are lots of those in government, and always have been. But the question is whether he can keep distance between two jobs that should not be held by the same person. You can’t be simultaneously in charge of the country’s immigration policy and your own party’s efforts to recruit ethnic voters without facing a potential conflict of interest on a daily basis – especially if you’re a win-at-all-costs type of politician, as Kenney certainly is. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20090512.WBwbradwanski20090512122149/WBStory/WBwbradwanski/
Every day police officers leave their homes and families and put their lives on the line for a salary, cause this is what they are being paid for, hired for and this does not mean that they are now even free of any negative criticism while they are doing their paid duties, especially when there are so many outstanding questions regarding their inappropriate use of authority, force by too many police officers, plus the unacceptable false cover ups of their wrong doings and their unacceptable lying now too. Plus basically nothing has even changed in the Vancouver airport customs area since the RCMP’s death of the police immigrant Dziekanski. 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. These are all valid issues, concerns too.

Why are so many people still obsessed with fantasy, romance, divorce, drugs, alcohol, even TV, movies, sex, pleasure, pornography.. for most of them personally it is an initial lazy, false escapism approach from the too often real negative aspects of life that we firstly all tend to have, particularly due to our own unrepentant sins and due to Satan’s buffeting, harassment of them.. the grass may appear greener in the neighbors yard cause you do not know what hardships they are facing now, the supposedly rich persons included. While God for his faithful few give them the grace to endure hardships and even to overcome them, we are all nevertheless bound to have trails and tribulations, hardships, all of us.. Instead of personally first learning how to use the Bible to oppose Satan, obtain peace in their own life, too many persons turn to the flesh.. The problem also with the common graphic misrepresentation of the pleasure of sex but the reality is that even the Gays, lesbians, adulterers tend to have even more negative consequences, oppressions in their life to force them into deeper bondage with Satan.. Jesus sets us free from all that.
(Gal 5:16 KJV) This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
(Gal 5:17 KJV) For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
(Eccl 7:8 KJV) Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
(Eccl 7:9 KJV) Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.
(Eccl 7:10 KJV) Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not inquire wisely concerning this.
(Eccl 7:11 KJV) Wisdom is good with an inheritance: and by it there is profit to them that see the sun.
(Eccl 7:12 KJV) For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.
(Eccl 7:13 KJV) Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which he hath made crooked?
(Eccl 7:14 KJV) In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.

When Harper first came to power, his most vocal critics were groups that were ideologically predisposed to hate the Conservatives on sight or who had irreconcilable policy differences with them. But, since then, the circle has been expanding to include academics, scientists, economists and even business leaders and, increasingly, it is the basic competence of the government that is becoming the top-of-mind issue. Chantal Hébert http://www.thestar.com/Canada/Columnist/article/605360
Indeed, Harper these days sounds so casual about the spending of public money that Finance Minister Jim Flaherty mused last week that some stimulus money is bound to be misspent in the rush to get cash out the door.
Flaherty spruces up office Flaherty leading by example For the past few weeks, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty has been encouraging Canadians to renovate Transportation Minister Jim Bradley makes announcement on proposed legislation to protect young and novice drivers and get dangerous drivers off roads. For the past few weeks, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty has been encouraging Canadians to renovate, saying that’s just what is needed to kickstart Canada’s flagging economy. Now, it turns out, Flaherty is leading by example, ordering renovations to his own office on Parliament Hill. While Flaherty vacations with his family during Parliament’s break week, workers are patching and repainting his fourth floor offices. They’re also patching his carpet to repair damaged portions and installing new curtains, said Chisholm Pothier, spokesman for Flaherty. Meanwhile, most of the contents of Flaherty’s office are sitting in the corridor, just a few doors down from the offices of Liberal Opposition Leader Michael Ignatieff. House of Commons officials were unable to say yesterday just how much the renovations will cost. But they aren’t likely to boost the deficit or kickstart the economy. The government pays for the paint, the carpeting and the curtains, but the work itself is being done by House of Commons employees already on the payroll. The opposition was quick to paint Flaherty’s renovations in the worst possible light. “For the thousands of Canadians who are waiting for their employment insurance cheques, the first thing that pops into the finance minister’s head is ‘time to redecorate,’ ” said Liberal MP Scott Brison. email email@example.com
The sad part this is not even the tip of the iceberg of the taxpayer’s money abuse we can expect now again..
Federal NDP leader Jack Layton continued to criticize Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s handling of the economic crisis. The depth of the economic crisis is much deeper than the government acknowledges. “I believe the prime minister is still wearing those rose-coloured glasses and that’s getting in the way of him seeing clearly the impact on people,” he said. “ People are really suffering. People literally can’t afford their housing. We’re hearing literally about the death of a homeless person last night and folks who’ve lost their jobs and can’t afford the medications their families need.” In other countries, governments are investing in the new energy economy, training a new workforce, providing child care and supporting small business, Layton said. It’s infuriating to see hundreds of millions of dollars of government money go to large American companies that build cars and are losing money when the government could be helping small businesses, improve drug benefits and fund child care.
It is here a gross distortion by the revenue generating traffic police to say that all the fatalities, accidents were caused by speeding alone, but yes it is true if no one was driving there would be no car accidents too, and no need for the police at all..
Deerfoot blitz catches speeders Calgary Herald January 27, 2009 Calgary police are warning motorists to slow down on Deerfoot Trail after handing out nearly 200 traffic tickets during a weekend crackdown on the freeway. The fastest speeder was clocked at 158 km/h and several were stopped doing 130-140 km/h. Two 24-hour licence suspensions were handed out, both before 10 a.m. Police say the drivers were likely still intoxicated from the night before. “I expected the numbers to be high, but 195 summonses by four officers is a lot,” said Sgt. Paul Sieracki with the traffic section. Sieracki said he oversaw the blitz with the four traffic officers.They spent about six hours each day enforcing traffic laws on Deerfoot Saturday and Sunday. The point was to highlight dangerous driving habits. “Every year, we lose 50 to 60 people due to motor vehicle collisions (throughout the city),” said Sieracki. “These are need-less deaths that can be prevented.” Traffic officers also saw several instances of aggressive driving and changing lanes without signalling. “It doesn’t surprise me at all police were able to charge that many people,”said Ald. Andre Chabot. “Deerfoot has been referred to as the Deerfoot 500 for a reason, a lot of people tend to speed on it.” A safety audit conducted on Deerfoot by the province with the co-operation of the city came up with a recommendation to dedicate a squad of officers — possibly a combination of city police and Alberta traffic sheriffs–to enforce the traffic laws on the busy highway… http://www.canada.com/news/Deerfoot+blitz+catches+speeders/1222299/story.html
and you allow him to to drink alcohol, allow him to own a fast car, build a six lane highway, and then you hypocrticaly give him also a speeding ticket?
The Ontario Provincial Police has impounded one of its own cars and suspended an officer under the province’s year-old street racing legislation. The OPP intelligence officer, driving an unmarked OPP car, was stopped by a fellow officer on Highway 403 near Brantford for travelling 65 km/h above the posted 100 km/h limit, according to the OPP. The subsequent investigation found the officer was not within the lawful execution of her duties at the time. In accordance with so-called street racing rules under the Highway Traffic Act — defined as driving 50 km/h over the limit — Detective Const. Heidi Fischer had her driver’s licence suspended and the police car was impounded, both for seven days. This is the third OPP vehicle impounded under the legislation. A fire truck has also been impounded. http://www.canada.com/news/Police+impounded+after+female+officer+allegedly+clocked/1277638/story.html
This news item substantiates something I have said for decades, police often love to speed, and secondly they also do own some of the hottest, fastest cars as well.. obvioulsy many cops themselves do not believe in drastic speed control..
but here I have to say as well that speeding is only 15 percent of the reasons people have car accidents, whereas drunk drivers cause 3 times as much car accidents, 45 percent of accidents , and yet the police do not go after drunk drivers enough or all the year rather too.. and why is that too now?
Dear British Traffic Police Officers and Managers
(1) Please avoid treating motorists as cash cows;
(2) If you cannot do (1), please make mobile speed control devices quite visible;
(3) If you cannot do (2), please hang the device outside a clean, unsuspiciously-looking car;
(4) If you cannot do (3), please use a car with no blackened-out windows;
(5) If you cannot do (4), please stop your car away from a bus stop;
(6) If you cannot do (5), please move away immediately when a passenger gets off the bus;
(7) If you cannot do (6), please behave as normal in the car instead of sliding down on the seat in the vain attempt at not being seen;
(8) If you cannot do (7), please drive away or stay where you are, rather than move just a few houses down the road;
(9) And if you cannot do (8), please make it so that whoever answers the phone at the Police Station, can immediately confirm it is officers on duty that are in the car, rather than who knows what kind of nasty people.
(10) And mostly, if you really cannot do any of the points above, please make the most you can in order not to scare law-abiding citizens in their own homes

In spite of real estate ethics codes, self regulation, the realtors I had worked with were some of the biggest liars still. Typical lying spins- Prices lower than last year- New listings continue to decline - A buyer’s and seller’s market – Home sales set record – well-priced listings and lower to mid-range priced properties remain in the highest demand -
DID YOU KNOW THAT 20 PERCENT OF THE REALTORS SELL 80 PERCENT OF THE HOMES. AND WHAT DO THE REST OF THE REALTORS DO? THEY DO NOTHING? SO REGISTER YOUR HOME WITH A TOP SELLER ALWAYS, FOR IT IS THE SAME PRICE. ASK YOUR OWN REALTOR TO GIVE YOU A WEEKLY REPORT AS TO WHAT HE OR SHE IS DOING TO SELL YOUR HOME, BESIDES THE TOO OFTEN USELESS OPEN HOMES. ASK FOR AND GET A COPY OF THE WEEKLY NEWSPAPER ADDS THAT TEND TO BE THE BEST MARKETING SALES APPROACH NOW TOO..
and the computer evalutions can still be misleading, a realtor can set false parameters in their general evaluations..
http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/10/liberals-politicians-do-lie-too/ so do many Pastors, so why not everyone else?
Ever notice how the average person lies once every 5 minutes at least, so imagine what the big liars do, how often the politicians, and some news media, realtors lie.. signifcantly a lot more.. Even “Some people say that the recession is over but try telling that to the unemployed and their families” Now the jobless are being driven onto the welfare rolls (the responsibility of provinces and municipalities) or forcing them to plunder their assets such as homes and retirement savings, maximizing their credit car debts. Neither option is pleasant. The given Canadian government Unemployment figures always have been big lies cause they are adjusted figures of people receiving UIC cheques, they do not actually sate all of the people unemployed who do not qualify for UIC, have been forced to go onto social welfare or have to get part time jobs with no fringe benefits or have become self employed which is a costly undertaking. Notice how often news media do not agree on the same news story, facts and how they lie about the real estate news, generally encouraging people to buy a new home of course.. get more debts.. In Toronto “New home sales jumped to 3,782 in June 2009 from 3,544 last June, a 7 per cent increase, and total sales hit 10,951 from 8,596 – a 27 per cent hike. But housing starts declined to 1,395 from 2,567 in the same period, a 46 per cent drop, and new listings declined to 13,357 from 16,068, a 17 per cent fall-off.” http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/21/canadas-unemployment-figures-lie/
I can quickly sum up my political experiences in Canada.. for decades now most people in Canada seem to elect liars and alcoholics for politicians, and we have had now much too many of them elected as well.. Of course it seems natural for alcoholics to lie, they seen to often lie that it is is ok to drink alcohol in the first place, and it seems natural for many lawyers who run for political offices, and many want to be politicians to lie to get elected.. Yes most people elect liars who tell them the things they want to hear.. we all know that had Stephen Harper told the truth that Canada was going into a major depression next, he very likely would have never got elected. so he said there was going to be no election or recession, he clearly lied. After he was elected he admits Canada was facing a big recession of course, how could he deny otherwise. I openly express the truth that we should stop electing any liars and alcoholics, even in the police forces, civil and public services now too, and when it is confirmed that they are thieves, cheats, liars or alcoholics they should be immediately fired, recalled.. as simple as that too. Some professing ostrich evangelical totally deny that the professing Christians drink alcohol, they have a problem with the alcoholics rather and not me I merely reported the truth, facts, that many professing Christians drink alcohol and falsely try to justify it as well.. Alcohol does a lot of brain damages, negatively affects your ability to work, to live normal, alcohol is a major cause of car accidents, tends to destroy your family life, so of course I have no use for alcohol or alcoholics anywhere. Neither should any of us not just MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. and a bad immoral Conservatives is not better than a bad immoral Liberal, especially firstly the alcoholic ones.
and consumer protection is another big government farce now too..
Now face the reality. Do not believe everything you hear. Do not believe one persons, check the facts out with many other persons. Too often the term Professional in Canada means Professional liars.. Lying spin doctors are a common fact of life in Canada.. Politicians and lawyers often lie, pastors lie, RCMP and cops lie, accountants lie, doctors and nurses lie, news reporters, bank managers, loan managers and so do corporations, advertisers, civil and public servants, realtors and their bosses as well.
Now a home should be generally a good investment, and when you buy a home you should make sure that you have not overpaid for the home, or bought a poor investment, even one that will not appreciate much in value next.
When you are buying a home you need to know what makes it a good value, a good buy
1 The area the home is located in: including the proximity to high schools, public schools, hospitals, churches, shopping centers, metro
2: The specific home model: some homes are more popular over others and have a higher resale values.. the most popular ones are Bungalows, two stories, split levels with at least 3 bedrooms, a two car garage and finished family room, fireplace..
When you are trying to sell a home remember most realtors do not sell, or advertise your home, they hope someone else does, they merely take a listing from you and tend not to do you much good.. it does not costs anything more but always ask a local Real estate manager such as Re/Max to give you the name of his or her two best selling Realtors.. and hire the send best one who will work hard now, Insure that in writing he or she guarantees to advertise regularly your home in a local newspaper for that is likely where it will attract the best buyers too.
Jean Charest the bad Quebec Premier did not listen to good advice so he lost his relection, and even lost his own seat. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/09/05/quebecs-liberals-gambled-sadly-instead-of-providing-good-leadership/
Too many people are ignorant about the truth in Quebec especially those outside of the province it seems. The truth about Quebec is undeniable.. It is a nice place to live in, Montreal is a clean city now too.. Better over a lot of other cities in North America too.. They do not lie about the true stae of their economy like they tend to do in Alberta. They tell you their is money to be made in Alberta. Then they show you a both working couple with 3 children on the news who now realy cannot afford to live in Calgary, due to the extremely high cost of living there too.
No I do not believe that the corruption in Quebec is worst over any other provinces.. Ontario or Alberta, BC included now.. it likley is all the same. Quebecers also now are friendly when they get their way like anywhere else in Canada. Our government administration in Quebec is no better.. and our Medicare akso here needs serious improvement still too. Quebec is soft on crime, white collared ones included now but so is Ontario, Alberta, BC..
CANADA’S PRIME MINISTER STEPHEN HARPER HAS A DIFFICULT BALANCING ACT TO DO.. HE HAS TO PLEASE also BC, NATIVES, ESKIMOS, THE WEST, ONTARIO, QUEBEC, AND THE MARITIMES, INCLUDING NEWFOUNDLAND TOO. HE PLEASES ONE AND IT TEND TO MAKE SOMEONE ELSEWHERE UPSET. SO HE WRONGFULLY FAILS TO ACT PROPERLY TOO OFTEN.
I have found it very surprising that Most Canadians are still really ignorant of what Quebecers, Quebec is really like, and they do falsely rely on distorted third party information, myths, and most, actually the majority of English speaking Canadians have not spend a significant time ever in Quebec. To learn more : Culture Québec, A culture that travels the world, from the ministère de la Culture et des Communications. I was surprised how my Quebecers refuse to speak English but have no problem speaking it in the United sates when many go there for their vacations..
About Canada’s constitution A poll showed that 73 per cent of Quebeckers would like to see the recognition of Quebec as a nation in the Canadian Constitution, while only 17 per cent of respondents in the rest of Canada agree. There are twice as many Quebeckers (82 per cent) as people in other provinces (39 per cent) who favour a new round of constitutional negotiations designed to get Quebec’s signature on the Constitution. In addition, 90 per cent of Quebeckers feel that the province’s language law should be enforced in federal institutions in the province, against only 26 per cent in the rest of Canada. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/poll-shows-continuing-divide-between-views-in-quebec-rest-of-canada/article1561317/
Intro to Quebec, Quebec outwardly is fairly typical of most Western societies in many regards, with, however, a few significant particularities of its own. A French Language, most Quebecers even younger ones do not still speak English , and a Culture of it’s own that has been very significantly influenced by the Catholic Church beliefs.. The influence of the Catholic Church has decreased significantly but has not been removed. While Montreal was once the centre of Jewish culture in Canada this is no longer true, nor visible as much too. Quebec was a major Roman Catholic society until recent years. The Church has maintained itself the protector of the French language and culture. Archbishops of large cities once were very influential at all government levels. In small towns, the influence of the priest was often equal or superior to that of the town’s mayor. Before any political decision could be made, politicians made sure that it would be in accordance with Catholic belief and attitudes. Congregations of nuns controlled and managed the province’s education, social and medical service. Simply put, Quebec was one of the world’s Catholic strongholds. Since the Quiet Revolution of the 1960s, Quebec has become much more secular. Nonetheless about 90% of the population still claims to be Catholic, but few regularly attend services or pay the tithe ** ( See note below) which the faithful are supposed to give to the Church. The strong Consumer protection and close social aspect of the French speaking mostly persons is also very evident , Quebec has the highest percentage of unionized workers in North America. Half of Quebecers do also have strong adversarial relationships with residents of neighbouring English-speaking provinces as well as Quebec’s own Anglophones because they rightfully sense no serious attempt has been made to understand, appreciate or to integrate into the French Quebec culture . Such an attitude stems mainly up to 20th century, when the Anglophones dominated the spheres of industry , commerce, ownership and management and they the Anglophones had falsely tended to favour their own for promotion to management-level positions. EVEN TODAY MOST CANADIAN Anglophones, AND NOTE THIS Francophones as well outside of Quebec are generally STILL INDIFFERENT AND VERY UNFRIENDLY TO THE FRENCH SPEAKING QUEBECERS. One notable vestige of the Catholic Church’s influence of Quebec culture is that francophone curses and expletives are nearly entirely composed of religious references and vocabulary. While the majority of Quebecers still have not been to the rest of Canada, starting probably in the late 1940s and reaching its apogee in the 1970s, many Quebec residents have been known to vacation or spend the whole winter months in southeast Florida, and in Cuba as well. And many Quebecers have obtained jobs in the US and also had moved there as well.. There are as many ex Quebecers in the US as there are presently in Quebec. But in a direct contrast Quebecers have not moved to the other parts of Canada because they have not been treated very nice there as they have been in the United States..
Racial profiling also is a serious problem in Quebec and like in the rest of Canada too much more needs to be done to address it, even the province’s human rights commission said. A recent investigation, focusing mainly on young people’s experiences, was launched after the commission said it had received 100 complaints involving allegations of racial profiling since 2005. More than half of the cases involved police – and seven of those are currently before the province’s Human Rights Tribunal. Yes the MUC cops are too often bigots. . http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/07/a-serious-warning-for-quebecs-premier-jean-charest-too/
The Canadian federal Parliament formally recognized Quebecers as a “nation united within Canada” but often fails to act accordingly still too.
OTTAWA, March 17 2009 (UPI) — Canada’s Conservative Party, which leads a minority government, has a 35-31 percent popularity edge over opposition Liberals, a poll released Tuesday indicated. The Angus Reid nationwide online poll of 1,002 adults last week for the Toronto Star said Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservatives had lost 3 percentage points since January. Opposition leader Michael Ignatieff’s Liberals gained 2 percentage points during the same time period, the report said. The socialist New Democratic Party posted 16 percent support and the Green Party had 7 percent, the poll indicated. The balance was scattered among the separatist Bloc Quebecois or others. The poll had a 3.1-percentage-point margin of error, the report said. The findings are similar to a poll of 2,002 voters published by the Canwest News Service March 10, in which Conservatives led the Liberals 37-33 percent. That poll suggested Conservative support was steady, while the Liberals gained 2 percent support. This was not unexpected since Harper’s recent negative acts, policies have again continued to alienate a lot of people, especially Quebecers. Hold on – politicians are always saying the only polls that count are the ones on election day, so maybe we shouldn’t put too much stock in this report. Or maybe we should? The Conservatives are definitely losing serious ground..
” Whatever love existed between Quebec and the Tories has turned sour. Last week, two different polls showed the Conservatives are in dire straits in the province they used to count on to gain a majority government. Everything is in the numbers. A province that is the second largest in Canada and holds the key to 75 seats cannot be ignored… Of course, from the beginning the Tories were poorly equipped to deal with Quebec. They had a mediocre roster of candidates and a dramatic lack of articulate local leaders – that’s still the case.,,Mr. Harper’s closest adviser on Quebec and spokesperson for Quebec affairs is Dimitri Soudas. Mr. Soudas’s only connections are with the Action Démocratique du Québec, a small right-wing party that is becoming more and more insignificant. (The ADQ received 16.3 per cent of the vote in the last provincial election and its leader, Mario Dumont, the only Quebec politician Mr. Harper was on good terms with, has resigned from politics.) The Prime Minister wasn’t even able to find a high-profile Quebecker to appoint to the Senate. And since the Conservatives didn’t win any seats in the Montreal area, it’s a young neophyte MP from Mégantic-L’Érable, Christian Paradis, who’s in charge of the metropolitan area. Mégantic is 300 kilometres east of Montreal, and Mr. Paradis candidly admits he hasn’t visited Montreal more than a few times in his life.
Instead of looking for a strong, well-connected lieutenant and broadening his circle of Quebec advisers, Mr. Harper naively thought he could handle Quebec himself and that his goodwill gestures toward the province would do the rest. He’s now reaping the results of his own delusion.” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20090313.wcogagnon16/BNStory/specialComment/home
Harper certainly will never get the support of Quebecer by STILL falsely bashing them for a start. Yes Quebecers ARE VERY different, AND they are a separate WHOLE community and they are NOT just more North Americans who speak French. They have a catholic and not a protestant background too, and they clearly do believe in the spirit of the law over the letter of the law, and they are not easily fooled like the Anglophones often are.
PROUD HARPER, AND THE WEST WRONGFULLY CANNOT UNDERSTAND STILL THAT IF YOU DESPISE, ABUSE QUEBECERS THERE NEXT IS A SERIOUS PRICE TO PAY FOR IT.. A REAL SERIOUS PRICE.. AND NO ONE CAN HAVE A MAJORITY CANADIAN GOVERNMENT WITHOUT THE QUEBEC VOTE.
Harper is losing it also in Ontario now too. Mar 21, 2009 04:30 AM Liberal support in Ontario clocked in at 44 per cent while the Conservatives have 31 per cent and the NDP 14 per cent, according to the poll, done for the Star and La Presse by Nanos Research.http://www.thestar.com/News/Canada/article/606075
The Conservatives are down and out in Quebec – and know it Globe and Mail – While Prime Minister Stephen Harper made the spot decision to recognize the Québécois as a “nation” within a united Canada. They betrayed the Harperites’ lack of touch when dealing with Quebec sensitivities, Then came Mr. Harper’s bad attack on “separatists” during the coalition acts last December … firstname.lastname@example.org
Other Canadians merely in ignorance Bashing Quebec makes the bashers even bigger losers next still too.

How Quebecers differ from the rest of Canada in their views..
Three-quarters of Canadian voters who attend evangelical churches (such as Baptist, Mennonite and Pentecostal) opted for the Conservative Party of Canada. In general Protestants, who nominally make up 30 per cent of the population, tend to split their vote between the two major parties.
Even though a majority of Quebecers don’t attend church on a regular basis, more than 95 per cent still claim some sort of formal religious affiliation.
Following are the latest figures for Quebec, for selected religions. They were collected during the 2001 federal census. Although the last census was held in 2006, questions about religious affiliation are asked only every second census. The next census will be in 2011.
Roman Catholics 5.9 million
Jehovah’s Witnesses 29,040
No religious affiliation 413,185
Note: Among Protestants in Quebec, Anglicans were the most numerous, with 85,475 adherents; members of the United Church came second, with 52,950. For Canada as a whole, the United Church was the leading Protestant denomination, with 2.83 million members to the Anglican Church’s 2.03 million.
The April 2009 poll, by Angus Reid Strategies for Maclean’s, surveyed 1,002 randomly selected Canadians on religion.
RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE: POLL HIGHLIGHTS
- 70% of Canadians hold a positive view of Christianity
- 41% hold a positive view of Hinduism
- 30% hold a positive view of Sikhism
- 45% believe mainstream Islam encourages violence
- 44% Nationally would not want their child to marry a person of Jewish faith. Even fewer would be comfortable with a Sikh or a Muslim. In Quebec, that number rises
- 62% Nationally think laws and norms should not be modified to accommodate minorities. In Quebec, that number rises to 74%.
Across Canada, 72 per cent said they have a “generally favourable opinion” of Christianity. At the other end of the spectrum, Islam scored the lowest favourability rating, just 28 per cent. Sikhism didn’t fare much better at 30 per cent, and Hinduism was rated favourably by 41 per cent. Both Buddhism, at 57 per cent, and Judaism, 53 per cent, were rated favourably by more than half the population
A mere 17 per cent of Quebecers said they have a favourable opinion of Islam, and just 15 per cent view Sikhism favourably. Only 36 per cent of Quebecers said they hold a favourable opinion of Judaism, far below the national average, and in sharp contrast to neighbouring Ontario, where 59 per cent expressed a favourable view of the Jewish religion. ” .., all religions were regarded less positively in Quebec than in Canada as a whole, including Christianity, which 67 per cent of Quebecers view favourably, five points below the Canadian average. Buddhism’s favourability rating of 57 per cent is four points higher than Judaism, . Buddhism was the only religion, including Christianity, for which more than half of people who said they don’t have a friend of that faith held a favourable opinion of it anyway.
When asked if they thought “the mainstream beliefs” of the major religions “encourage violence or are mostly peaceful,” only 10 per cent said they thought Christianity teaches violence. But fully 45 per cent said they believe Islam does, and a sizable 26 per cent saw Sikhism as encouraging violence. By comparison, just 13 per cent perceived violence in Hindu teachings and 14 per cent in Jewish religion. A tiny four per cent said they think of Buddhism as encouraging violence. By far the highest percentage who viewed Islam as encouraging violence was found in Quebec, 57 per cent. Sikh doctrine is mostly likely to be viewed as violent in the province where about half of Canadian Sikhs live: 30 per cent of British Columbians said they think Sikhism encourages violence.
Angus Reid also took that debate national, asking how far governments should go to accommodate minorities. A strong majority of 62 per cent agree with the statement, “Laws and norms should not be modified to accommodate minorities.” A minority, 29 per cent, agreed with the alternative statement, “On some occasions, it makes sense to modify specific laws and norms to accommodate minorities.” Another nine per cent weren’t sure. In Quebec, 74 per cent were against changing laws or norms, the highest negative response rate on the accommodation question in the country
The Angus Reid poll found 51 per cent oppose funding of Christian schools, and the level of opposition soars from 68 per cent to 75 per cent for all other religions. On even hotter-button religious issues, opposition is overwhelming. Only 23 per cent would allow veiled voting, and just three per cent Islamic sharia law-an even lower level of support than the eight per cent who would allow polygamy. There’s substantial sympathy for recognizing religious holidays, 45 per cent, but a solid majority still opposes the idea.
** Still today Quebec’s official welcome to non-Catholic immigrants in addition to the huge crucifix atop Mount Royal in Montreal are wall mounted crucifix and their public prayers.
Quebec’s Catholics special religious rights goes back to the Quebec Act of 1774, and is central to the asymmetrical features of Confederation in the British North America Act of 1867. This The Quebec Act explicitly guaranteed the freedom to practice the Catholic faith. It also restored French civil law alongside the British common law even till today. Furthermore, the Quebec Act allowed Catholics to hold public office, and removed a reference to the Protestant denomination in the office holders’ oath of allegiance to the king of England. It also allowed the Catholic church to collect the religious tax known as the tithe. http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2009/05/28/the-not-so-secret/
The Catholic church collects tithes, but so do many evangelical churches, and some cults too.. even though tithes is applicable only in the Old Testament and to the Jewish persons only too. The Tithe in the new Testament is voluntary, non compulsive.. but the problem also today still is that many of the people who collect the tithe, violate often the OT laws on tithing and do steal from the tithe as well.. the OT had specified 1/7 of the tithe had to be given to the poor.. something the present tithe collectors do not mention, do not preach nor practice wrongfully in reality.. http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/05/29/the-ttihe/
Quebecers alone in wanting to save gun registry: Poll Wed Nov 11, 12:47 PM OTTAWA – A new poll suggests Quebecers are alone in wanting to save the long-gun registry. This is because Quebecers actually are more peace loving persons over those in the rest of Canada, and the Catholic region tends to preach pacifism, love and forgiveness over war mongering.
Harper recent win in one riding in Quebec. It’s an exception to conventional wisdom that by-election results can’t be extrapolated into a broader trend. Stephen Harper’s first attempt to woo small-town, rural Québécois voters was only a partial success. He then stabbed himself and his party in the chest during the 2008 election with maladroit policies on cuts to arts funding and tough youth-crime measures. Since the setback, his Conservatives have offered rural, small-town Quebec a much warmer and tangible second French kiss. Will it be reciprocated? Yes: There’s more than enough circumstantial evidence to conclude his second gambit might do the trick. The Conservatives have reached out with bags of taxpayers’ stimulus cash, as well as more pandering on the language front.Will this let them rout the Bloc in rural, small-town Quebec to help win a majority? It depends on if and how Gilles Duceppe can counter the steady flow of hard cash in rural constituencies that have fallen on hard times. Neither the Liberals nor NDP can challenge the Bloc or the Conservatives in rural Quebec. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/opinions/letters-to-the-editor/a-second-french-kiss/article1360304/
Face it like anywhere in Canada, even in Alberta many people can be bought with cash.. something Harper knows and practices now even though he had first lied and said he never would.. the Liberals also used it successfully for years..
Quebec is “the most corrupt province in Canada when it comes to stealing, tax evasions, bad business practises?
MONTREAL – The Quebec government demanded an apology from Maclean’s magazine on Friday . This week’s cover calls Quebec “the most corrupt province in Canada,” The opposition Parti Quebecois has, in fact, protested the cover. But it also says the current Charest government makes it pretty hard for it to defend Quebec, given of its plethora of political scandals. But Maclean’s wasn’t apologizing…. the magazine said, “but we think that the articles should be read and judged based on their own merits of fair and credible journalism.” Two articles in the magazine’s Oct. 4 edition aim to answer the question of why so many political scandals originate from Quebec – looking at a lengthy list of issues that have dogged the Charest government in recent years and also examining provincial scandals since the 1930s. The article makes brief references to the three B.C. premiers who were turfed by scandal within a decade, and to the dozen members of Saskatchewan’s Devine government who were charged in an expense-account scam in the 1990s. But it offers a far more detailed examination of Quebec’s various scandals while pondering the question of why corruption should be so ingrained in one political culture. The article examines the Duplessis reign, the construction scams of the 1970s, the Mulroney era, and the federal sponsorship scandal. It also points to more recent allegations of corruption at Montreal city hall and the current Bastarache inquiry investigating allegations of impropriety in the naming of Quebec judges. “The slew of dodgy business is only the most recent in a long line of made-in-Quebec corruption that has affected the province’s political culture at every level,” Maclean’s Martin Patriquin writes. “It raises an uncomfortable question: why is it that politics in Canada’s bete noire province seem perpetually rife with scandal?” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100924/national/macleans_bashes_quebec
Well I know that the Governments in Alberta, Calgary are genereally not any better over those in Quebec, Montreal.. but I do prefer Montreal a lot more.. like in most provinces in Canada both of the police forces are iandeqaute still too.
My local Quebec MLA’s seem to be so busy chasing the mighty dollar they say they are too busy to talk to me and seem too often to forget about me often, they had not even replied to any of my last letter to them the whole last year now too..
Firstly all of the governments needs to allot a lot more money for Medicare, heart and leg surgery and for decades now too as well .. and likely this money will be partially abused again as well.. some thing I still do see too often now too.. doctors and nurses even not properly supervised..
Quebec to address heart surgery delays Quebec Health Minister Yves Bolduc is promising to reduce the waiting list for heart surgery in the province after a 65-year-old patient died while on the waiting list for a relatively straightforward procedure. Jean-Guy Pitre, a retired police officer, died Friday after waiting more than five months for the operation to repair a blocked aorta, which was to take place at Montreals Hotel Dieu hospital. Officials at the University of Montreal Health Centre (CHUM), said it was forced to postpone Pitres surgery because of a lack of beds in the intensive care unit
While Automobile traffic accidents are the number one cause of death for Americans, Canadians ages 3 to 33 ad while Automobile traffic accidents are the most common source of personal injury the real Statistics still indicate that hospital deaths due to hospital acquired sickness, medical errors, medical negligence exceedingly surpass all of these numbers. And yet here not enough is being done about this and why is that?
Anyone stupid to say that the main Medicare problem also in QUEBEC is due to the lack of nurses is a fool.. for the root problem is the fact the Hospitals have a limited annual budget for heart surgery teams overall and for decades now as well, and not just in Quebec. heart surgery at $50,000 plus is a costly undertaking.. so only about 10 percent of the people who need it get it.. and I have been writing that truth now for 15 years now too. In Quebec and in many of the other provinces they do often practice pretentious, token Medicare.. they in the pretentious McGill West Island Health Social Services Centre, McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) and in the University of Montreal Health Centre (CHUM), allow the public to think they have adequate medical services only.. but do not have the staff, equipment, resources for it.. especially now for both heart and leg surgeries now.. and as the population in Canada gets older this is becoming even more obvious too.
The police are not the only ones who stall and wrongfully cover-up for their buddies..
Almost since my first job after graduating from university I had learned that people are not to be trusted, need to be supervised, and corruption still exists in construction, universities, municipalities, governments, corporations, amongst professionals and politicians as well.
As I have detailed to all of Canada’s major news media, Members of the legislature as well I still never got this year adequate replay, actions about the much too many bad medical services, bad doctors and nurses, bad social workers I had witnessed, rightfully complained about at the Montreal West Island General Hospital and this is still unacceptable.
The clear fact is that the Canadian federal government, federal Member parliament had voted unanimously this year against allowing euthanasia, the Killing of anyone by even medical persons but who enforces it in Quebec. The clear fact is that the Canadian federal government, federal Member parliament had voted unanimously this year against allowing euthanasia, the Killing of anyone by even medical persons and that now included as have also now complained in writing about my own witness of the unnecessary death of Mr. Ploufe at the Montreal West Island Lakeshore Hospital . In my father’s case the medical personnel had not done all they could to save my father’s life the last 7 months before his death and their unacceptable neglect of his medical conditions by too many medical staff caused some persons wrongfully to allow his early death.
My local Quebec MLA’s seem to be so busy chasing the mighty dollar they say they are too busy to talk to me and seem too often to forget about me often, they had not even replied my last letter to them about bad Bell Canada now too, and in the process they now had by their poor management even lost 30 percent of the Quebecers pension fund.

Attention: Clement Gignac Ministre du Développement économique, de l’Innovation et de l’Exportation Député de Marguerite-Bourgeoys
It is unbelievable that after I had written about it now to our Quebec even Health Ministers, Premiers, major news media too, too even for many years later 15 years even I can go to most local Hospitals or Convalescent homes in Montreal Quebec and there too easily see the typical and mostly poorly supervised doctors, nurse, medical care workers and when I write to you my own member of the legislature too about it, ( hand delivered it as well) what neither you or your staff now do not even bother to acknowledge my emails, correspondences, never mind act upon it and why is that? She was today again too busy to talk to me.. my local MLA’s representative
Do I really now have to write to everyone, all the news editors too, about his next too and post it it on the net before I will now get a satisfactory result too from you? RSVP
And when the citizens ask the politicians to do their jobs better where are they? My very useless Lieberal local Quebec MLA Clement Gignac and his representative Luciana.Evangelista@mdeie.gouv.qc.ca they had not even acknowledged or replied even to my last 2 letter to them for they seem to be so busy chasing the mighty dollar, to make up for losing 30% of the Quebecers pension funds they lost. Now they even do say they are too busy to talk me and so they do forget about me, and all of the elderly persons now too it seems.
Now no one by now, absolutely still no one should underestimate me or get complacent with me as I do not hesitate to fully expose to all, to demand full prosecution of all the guilty absolves persons I do run into still to all. I do not accept inappropriate actions lightly too.. It should be obvious to all also that I merely do not write to you too now for the fun of it and not only do I also post my unresolved complaints eventually on the internet even for the whole world to read, and I have been doing this for the last few decades too. I do expect seriously, full appropriate actions on the matter of all of my complaints, and so I do send copies of all of my complaints to key members of Parliament to all of Canada’s major news editors as well now for their further notice and appropriate actions too.
Attention Quebec, Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux Alain Poirier
Both the French and English speaking Montreal hospitals are undeniably too often pretentious, inadequate and mismanaged still too, all as simple as that too. Self regulation by doctors is just more unacceptable masturbation too..
OTTAWA – Stephen Harper made two very different sales pitches for his economic plan this week: one a public pep talk to jittery Canadians, the other a private smoothing-of-the-feathers for uneasy conservatives.
The marquee speech Canadians saw on television Tuesday or read about the next day was about how the economy would recover swiftly and strongly through targeted spending in the budget.
The other was behind closed doors Thursday evening to a group of key conservatives – sharply partisan remarks that ripped into the Liberals, libertarians, the Obama administration’s tax policies and Wall Street.
The prime minister spoke at a conference sponsored by the Manning Centre for Building Democracy, a conservative think-tank run by former Reform Party leader Preston Manning.
The prime minister’s office did not signal beforehand that he was giving the speech, and refused to make his remarks available afterward.
In a recording obtained by The Canadian Press, Harper goes after the Liberals in a election-campaign style attack, saying the current situation would be much worse had they been in power.
“Imagine the stance Canada would have taken when Hezbollah and Hamas terrorists attacked Israel. Imagine how many Liberal insiders and ideologues would be now in the Senate, the courts and countless other federal institutions and agencies – I should say, how many more,” Harper said to laughter.
“Imagine the costs of going through with the Kyoto and Kelowna accords with no plan to actually achieve anything on either the environment or aboriginal affairs. Imagine what a carbon tax would be doing to our economy in the middle of a global recession.”
He twice pointed disdainfully to tax hikes U.S. President Barack Obama introduced for the highest tax brackets.
Harper urged the crowd not to “forget that Conservatives being in power has made an enormous difference.”
The prime minister has been criticized in some conservative circles for allowing the government to go into deficit with spending programs designed to stimulate the economy. At the conference, which continued Friday, some high-profile conservatives warned against watering down conservative ideas to win votes.
“Conservatives should stop having the internal debate in their head and all the philosophical arguments, and talk about hard specific ideas that make a difference in people’s lives, have the courage to stand up and fight for the things we know are right,” said Tom Long, a former leadership candidate for the Canadian Alliance.
“We have tried going out and selling things we don’t believe in – how’s that working?”
Said Michel Kelly Gagnon of the Montreal Economic Institute: “If you want to vote for a centrist party, you can vote for the Liberal party of Canada. They’re very good at that.”
But Harper vigorously defended his policies, arguing that compromises had to be made to face the economic reality.
“I’m talking about compromises that address the reality of the lives of real people.”
He went on to deride the spendthrift culture in the United States and the recklessness of Wall Street. Harper, who has been described as a libertarian in the past, surprised some in the audience by critiquing those same ideals.
“The libertarian says, ‘Let individuals exercise full freedom and take full responsibility for their actions.’ The problem with this notion is that people who act irresponsibly in the name of freedom are almost never willing to take responsibility for their actions.”
Mike Brock, a Conservative blogger who attended the conference, called the speech bewildering.
“The treatment to classical liberals and libertarians – of which I consider myself – was nothing short of stunning,” he wrote.
“The condescension was literally dripping from his mouth. Was this his response to the disillusionment that libertarians across the country have had to his government and its policies of late?
“If it was, it did not build any bridges. Rather, it burnt them right down.”
The biggest threat to families in Canada does not come from gay marriage, or abortion, or any of the other traditional social-conservative hobby-horses. It comes from divorce, since in Alberta there is no legal separation.. note this fact 30 percent of evangelical Christians practice divorce even cause many pastors counsel it often, they are sex maniacs who like to keep their options open, even though God hates divorce.
The intention of the Conservative Party to run attack ads on Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff clearly demonstrates that Stephen Harper remains what he has always been: blindly partisan, mean-spirited, and willing to say or do anything, even at the expense of the truth, to gain or maintain power. What a contrast in style to President Barack Obama. Obama generates hope — Harper generates cynicism. Obama inspires citizens to be positive — Harper’s style is all negative, all the time. Harper is desperate to change the channel, to get Canadians to focus on matters other than his government’s dismal record of financial mismanagement and broken promises. Harper, you remember, wasn’t going to tax income trusts, wasn’t going to appoint senators, wasn’t going to force an election unless he lost a vote in Parliament, wasn’t going to run a deficit. Our Prime Minister changes policy on the fly and hopes we won’t notice the inconsistencies, the broken promises, the irrational shifts in his thinking. http://www.brantfordexpositor.ca/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=1479728
Most people are Ostriches, they have glamorous versions of the reality, a disserted one, a spin, one they use to make themselves not to deal with it or to think about it negatively.. not surprisingly since the average person now lies 3 times every 10 minutes..
But let me tell you 2 things about telling lies:
a: we tend to believe our own lies, funny how that is, say it often enough and you yourself start to be live the lie as the truth when it is still a lie.. and
b: the more you do now lie to yourself the crazier, the more insane you yourself do become even if you may not admit it, or now be aware of it. eventually you become totally loony as a result, a far grasp from reality. I have seen many a persons go there now too.
(James 1:26 KJV) If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.
(James 1:17 KJV) Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
(Col 3:9 KJV) Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
A Christian radio station in Red Deer Alberta , from Alberta’s once Bible belt too, wrote to me today and said they deny that Stephen Harper and his colleagues do , drinks beer, wine, alcohol, and that Harper even distributes any of it to others, cause real the Christians do not do this. Are they right or wrong about you to? Do openly tell us all. Some think you are a real Christian, are you deliberate now misleading them here too again? I am an abstainer and I do not give out any smokes, playboy or wine too at any of my events.. what about you Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Preston Manning too? I do not believe rightfully either of you are real Christians.. for many good reasons now too. Nor do many others.
For the record, Stephen Harper Prime Minister of Canada himself now did not even deny to me that he drinks beers and/or alcohol, or that he even gives presents of alcohol to others as well. So why do any of the others?
and no man can serve two masters, for he will love one and hate the other..

Calgary – Chef Rocco Terrigno has cooked for celebrities before, but not until yesterday did the Secret Service show up in advance of his most famous customer of all. When George W. Bush arrived with an entourage of RCMP and Secret Service agents last night to dine at Osteria de Medici, the popular Italian restaurant in Kensington, his arrival shut down the neighbourhood. Terrigno didn’t know who his customer was until an hour and a half before the 43rd president, in town to give a talk in Calgary, arrived for dinner. “We knew it was going to be someone important,” said Terrigno this morning as he sat in the spot where Bush sat in the private dining room. “Sometimes you get RCMP come by and you know that person is very important, but this time, there was RCMP and the Secret Service.”http://www.thestar.com/News/Canada/article/603754

When Jesus was asked, “What is the greatest commandment?” he responded with two:
Love God and love your neighbor. (cf. Mark 12:28-31)
In accord with this, we see the first three commandments as directed toward the first of these (love of God),
and the last seven as relating to the second: love of neighbor.
Here I would note also that one of the main instigators of the professional Doctors carrying out their duties more effectively was not only the threat of discipline by their self regulating body, but the threat of an external, public lawsuit itself.. something that is generally drastically missing in the police forces now..
Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves very ones best interest… too often still missing in the PROFESSIONAL BODIES, EVEN IN THE RCMP, police forces as well it seems too.
Robert Dziekanski’s death at Vancouver’s airport has eroded public confidence in the RCMP among Canadians who feel four officers used too much force when they shocked the Polish immigrant with a Taser, a new survey suggests in B.C., where 73 per cent said the officers used too much force, and 54 per cent said they now have less confidence in the RCMP.
Now as if you all did not know that already that the Local and the national police cannot be respected to do a decent inquiry into the alleged wrong doings of any police officers, cause we can seem all to know that the accused police officers do not hesitate to lie, to cover-up the reality… now self regulation of the police force, is just useless self masturbation always it seems, thus we need independent reviews of all police complaints for all of the police forces too in Canada, with real negative consequences on the guilty persons now too and it is as simple as that.. too often Self regulation is another bad word for masturbation and it is not the real thing..
We also still do need better police managers, better Justice Ministers Canada wide too.
“And the RCMP has changed, for the worse. At the headquarters level there hasn’t been a good report in years. Various inquiries have found incompetence, poor training, poor discipline, poor co-ordination and communication, and outright dishonesty. Those inquiries have used phrases like “horribly broken,” “often flawed,” “not justified” and so on.
News reports made it clear that RCMP investigations into embarrassing and fatal actions of their own members were inadequate to the point of being a coverup. At the field level there were many reports of highly dubious shootings by RCMP members, and criminal investigations into the conduct of members when off duty. Former RCMP Commissioner Giuliano Zaccardelli resigned in disgrace after giving conflicting statements to a Parliamentary committee. ” http://www.calgaryherald.com/opinion/Alberta+should+renew+RCMP+contract/3498184/story.html?cid=megadrop_storyThis is not a new revelation I myself now had detailed to you about 25 years ago my own experience in Canmore Alberta with the perverse RCMP where I got 2 speeding tickets on the same spot years apart and how the RCMP next also had covered up for it’s pervere buddies, and I had also entered my complaint about their perverse acts into the Canmore Queens court record as well now.One of the best way that I have discovered to get to know what a cop is really like, is work with him just for one whole day,.. and what you now saw next.. lying, bullying, control freak..
