Real accountability and real fairness needed in Canada

1-canada-quebec-flag

.

Guilty, tried and convicted outside of the courts tends to apply mainly for the ordinary citizens but not for police, public and civil servants, politicians..

.

The hypocrisy is incredible too many  politicians are  caught “do as I say and not as I do” World.  No big surprise here. The Politicians, police, bad civil and public servants can do what we normal citizens aren’t  allowed to do.

.

The reality is that hardened criminals and hardened policeman too, bad civil and public servants, bad politicians are an acceptable threat to anyone and both need to be equally prosecuted by the law.  It is necessary to get both of these type of bad people of the streets.

Bell, Telus face class actions over rounding up calls to next minute

An Ontario court has certified class action lawsuits against Telus (TSX:T) and Bell (TSX:BCE) over the practice of rounding up calls to the next full minute.

Lawyers for two firms representing the plaintiffs say millions of Canadian were affected by the practice in which, for example, a call that lasts one minute and one second is rounded off to two minutes for billing purposes.

While Bell and Telus had previously billed customers on a per-second basis, in mid-2002 they changed their practices so that customers were billed on a per-minute basis, with calls being rounded up to the farthest minute, the suit alleges.

This change was not disclosed by either telecom until the end of the class periods, lawyers for Rochon Genova LLP and the Merchant Law Group LLP said in a release issued Thursday.

The class actions were certified on behalf of Canadian residents who subscribed to Bell services and were billed by the minute between Aug. 18, 2006, and Oct. 1, 2009, and Ontario residents who subscribed to Telus services and were billed by the minute between Aug. 18, 2006, and July 1, 2010.

The allegations have not been proven in court.

Canada’s big bad Telecom

bell

 

 I saw Big Telecom’s army of lobbyists, eye to eye, at a hearing last week.   

It was amazing and sickening to hear them argue that Canadians should be blocked from affordable Internet access options.  They are powerful, but we have a new crucial opportunity to fight back. Josh Tabish  OpenMedia

.

Big Telecom plans to use a crucial, rapidly-approaching hearing  to kill indie Internet services in Canada. If successful, they’ll be able to block you from companies offering affordable, next-generation Internet services, and continue to price-gouge Canadians

.

We’re facing a situation where, soon, your only choice could be between price-gouging Big Telecom giants – an unbelievable power grab for Big Telecom.

.

We know that Canadians pay some of the highest prices in the world for some of the worst Internet service.  And a big part this is because Big Telecom has been given gatekeeper powers before…

…a nd abused them.

https://openmedia.org/powergrab/

Net neutrality” has been built into the fabric of the Internet since its creation — but it is also a principle that we cannot take for granted.  We cannot allow Internet service providers (ISPs) to restrict the best access or to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace for services and ideas.   So the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has to implement the strongest possible rules to protect net neutrality.” We cannot allow Internet service providers (ISPs) to restrict the best access or to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace for services and ideas,” “I believe the FCC should create a new set of rules protecting net neutrality and ensuring that neither the cable company nor the phone company will be able to act as a gatekeeper, restricting what you can do or see online.” Obama said in a statement released by the White House.  President Obama’s call for “net neutrality” – the notion that any and all content should be treated equally by Internet providers – should cause the Federal Communications Commission to regulate broadband service like a utility as a way to protect consumers’ ability to access all content without a threat of connectivity being throttled. Us President Obama called for prohibiting ISPs from blocking or deliberately slowing any legal content. His proposals also include a recommendation to mostly ban paid-for “fast-lane” access, in which a content provider refusing to pay extra would be subject to slower Internet transmission and to  reclassify consumer broadband Internet service and regulate it as if it’s a utility – like electricity and water – as many consumer advocacy groups have asked for a similar strategy to protect unfettered access.  The simple, common-sense  rules include:

  • No blocking.  If a consumer requests access to a website or service, and the content is legal, your ISP should not be permitted to block it.  That way, every player — not just those commercially affiliated with an ISP — gets a fair shot at your business.
  • No throttling.  Nor should ISPs be able to intentionally slow down some content or speed up others — through a process often called “throttling” — based on the type of service or your ISP’s preferences.
  • Increased transparency.  The connection between consumers and ISPs — the so-called “last mile” — is not the only place some sites might get special treatment. The  FCC to make full use of the transparency authorities the court recently upheld, and if necessary to apply net neutrality rules to points of interconnection between the ISP and the rest of the Internet.
  • No paid prioritization.  Simply put: No service should be stuck in a “slow lane” because it does not pay a fee.  That kind of gatekeeping would undermine the level playing field essential to the Internet’s growth.  An explicit ban on paid prioritization and any other restriction that has a similar effect.

Unprepared, a wake up call

.

The RCMP is warning both police and military to keep an eye out for terrorists following a threat from Islamic State (ISIS)  Police and military were told to exercise vigilance and caution upon starting their shifts this week. Time for the Police  to lay off the Booze…

.

OTTAWA – Canada’s spy agency and national police force are so constrained by a lack of resources that they can’t keep close track of all the Islamic extremists who may be a potential threat at home and they have also had to abandon some counter-espionage work and criminal investigations ..  http://www.torontosun.com/2014/10/31/canada-struggles-with-extremist-threat-resources-gap   this is not news to me as I  have said so for decades even..  Revenue generating Parking and speeding  tickets is still their main occupation..

 

The 2 serious  ‘brutal and violent attack’ on armed forces members,   in which an armed attacker shot and fatally wounded a Canadian Forces member at the National War Memorial before being shot dead in Parliament’s Centre Block  by Michael Zehaf-Bibeau . and Martin “Ahmad” Rouleau, 25,   attack on two soldiers in Quebec,  who was arrested last summer when he tried to leave the country, but the RCMP did not have enough evidence to charge him with any crime,  rammed two Canadian Forces members with a car near Montreal Monday before being shot dead by police, and he  was  “radicalized”  to carry out a terrorist attack, the Prime Minister’s Office said .   Both events have shown us all how the Police services and the Armed forces   generally overall were now even unprepared , but thanks to the heroic  actions of individual police officers the unexpected, negative situations were contained

.

Face it also that the lying spin doctors, politically correct stooges, will not admit the reality but falsely rather do  try to play down the seriousness of the reality of the Holy War, Jihad, by labeling the Islamist Terrorists as isolated terrorists, Yeah all still deluded and isolated from reality, the media liars, posters liars included..

The father of Martin Couture-Rouleau says Ottawa needs to strengthen its security laws to deal with cases like his troubled son, a 25-year-old who fell under the influence of radical Islam and killed a Canadian soldier last week. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/father-of-couture-rouleau-says-government-must-strengthen-security-laws/article21308978/

The security forces protecting Parliament must be better integrated, Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney said .Concerns have been raised repeatedly over the years about the different silos in which law enforcement and security officials operate on and around Parliament Hill, “the silos we have today are not adequate. Security inside Parliament must be integrated with outside security forces. In addition Blaney said the federal government will also introduce further anti-terrorism measures.   ”  http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/ottawa-shooting-rcmp-house-security-radios-on-different-frequencies-1.2814315

The RCMP itself are the tip of a big iceberg of bad cops, all having also to do with the bad managers who hired them firstly.  The RCMP received almost 13,000 formal public complaints since 2010, but its complaints board rejected 90% of them, QMI Agency has learned.  A force of 28 thousand and almost 12 thousand complaints. There is something rotten BC has long been known as the dumping ground for RCMP trash. No wonder there are so many complaints there. ..

Alcohol is a serious problem even  among our police officers too

http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/drink-alcohol-and-die/

.

Canadian sailors will no longer be able to drink aboard ships, unless the vessel is tied up or an exception has been made for a special occasion such as Christmas or a barbecue.

The order was made today by navy commander Vice-Admiral Mark Norman, and it follows an order in July for HMCS Whitehorse to abandon an exercise in San Diego and return to port in Canada following three allegations of drunken misconduct.

Norman said the policy change will help prevent instances of alcohol-fuelled misconduct.

“Alcohol is always a factor that we cannot ignore, but this is not about alcohol,” said Norman.

“This is about the conduct of our people and unfortunately alcohol does contribute to misconduct and has done in the past. And we just want to try and regulate that as best we can going forward.”

The order will forbid the long-standing practice of easy and cheap access to beer and wine aboard navy vessels.  Before today, sailors were allowed to drink while at sea, provided they were not on duty in less than six hours. Beer was available in pop machines on some vessels.

The Royal Canadian Navy on Friday posted an executive summary of the report into the incident online.  http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/hmcs-whitehorse-incident-results-in-drinking-ban-on-navy-ships-1.2871521

 

.

Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too. It is a clearly established fact with good basis as to why our Canadian leaders, politicians, police, military, public and civil servants  who are always to be exemplary are even personally are to held to a higher standard, accountability in reality.  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. Too many police officers are now too often guilty of their most serious neglect of public trust and their duty

UKRAINE’S REALITY – Smoke and mirror

Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Report on the human rights situation in Ukraine 15 December 2014 accuses the Ukrainian government Kiev forces of torture, inhumane treatment of civilians

http://www.ohchr.org/Documents/Countries/UA/OHCHR_eighth_report_on_Ukraine.pdf

.

In case you did not notice the Ukrainian government and it’s supporters lie a lot, all the time.

.

Ukraine is a very poor and corrupt country . It has been robbed internally for decades now too and the vast corruption still is ongoing..  What is not controversial is that grand corruption flourished in Ukraine before the revolution and remains endemic now, with devastating consequences for the population’s welfare. 

.

Most economist criticizes Ukraine’s bloated public expenditures, corrupt taxation Ukraine has done nothing to tackle corruption;  A member of the House of Representatives foreign relations committee, Steve Stockman, appealed to US investigators to look into corruption in Ukraine related to hard-currency bonds, RBK-Ukrayina reports Nov. 25. The people who benefit from this corruption are top civil servants in Kiev, some of whom have yachts and private jets kept, mostly, outside the country. They will find themselves up against the “mid-level mafia” – the same raft of long-time bureaucrats skilled at making money though corrupt schemes . Many serve as deputy ministers or heads of departments, often holding more real power than their formal bosses and having their roots in the Soviet nomenclature. Without thorough administrative reform of the civil service, success in changing government will be limited. Morgan Williams, president of the US Ukraine Business Council, says “time is running out” for Ukraine’s leaders to make good on their often-repeated but never-delivered promises of reform and fighting corruption.

“The US extends grants and credits to Ukraine while accusations of corruption within the Ukrainian cabinet are surfacing, some of them against the Central bank.

Corrupt officials bought up hard-currency bonds via intermediaries in the Central bank using bank’s assets. Then they transferred to off-shore entities the right to claim interest on the bonds.

In some deals the Investment capital Ukraine, ICU, company was involved. ICU at the time was co-owned by the present Central bank governor, Valeria Hontareva.

Ukraine’s potential has been repeatedly squandered – by corruption and ill governance as much as by today’s security issues.  State coffers are at their barest in 10 years and Ukraine needs extra cash to service its debt and make gas payments at a time when the economy is contracting and the hryvnia currency hovers close to historic lows.   Disregarding the money stolen Mostly all of the newly loaned money will be going to Ukraine’s military. Weapons bought from other countries can be paid for only with any borrowed money, because the Government of Ukraine is basically broke and soaring even deeper into debt, and is sharply cutting back on pensions and other expenditures than military, which is receiving the Government’s virtually total focus. Most  loans will never be  paid back, because Ukraine cannot be able to pay back all of the existing loans.

Ukraine economically  is in no position to fight a long war with Russia.

putin

.

International watchdog Human Rights Watch (HRW) has accused the Ukrainian army of violating “the laws of war” through the use of so-called cluster munitions in separatist-held areas of eastern Ukraine.   It could also lend credibility to Moscow’s argument that Kyiv is particularly insensitive — or even represents a threat — to the plight of ethnic Russians and other Ukrainian citizens in areas where pro-Russian separatism has maintained a foothold.

http://www.rferl.org/content/ukraine-human-rights-watch-cluster-munitions/26647918.html

.

An Amnesty International investigation into allegations of execution-style and other deliberate killings by pro-Russian separatists and pro-Kyiv forces has found evidence of isolated incidents attributable to both sides, but is difficult to get an accurate sense of the scale of these abuses. It is likely that many have not yet been exposed and that others have been deliberately misrecorded.

.

The West and the new Ukraine Government had falsely Forced a Clash With Ukrainian Rebels in Donetsk

.

When the new Ukrainian President   Petro Poroshenko  took control of Ukraine in February 2014, via a coup d’etat against the past democratically elected Ukrainian President,  Viktor Yanukovych,  even by an outright invasion of Ukraine by the U.S, the new Ukrainian Government imposed in Kiev was undemocratic and very vulnerable. The new president being anti-Russian had to get rid of those southeastern voters (exterminated &/or expelled from Ukraine) in order to make the new, pro-U.S. Ukrainian regime (which was supported only by the voters in Ukraine’s northeast), stick,

.

“In Ukraine, the EU was complicit in the coup against the democratically elected Viktor Yanukovych and has failed to voice any concern at the treatment of the opposition parties in the country,”.    Crimea had immediately broke away from that new Government, Russian troops came into Crimea to protect them against military action that was planned by the U.S. to stop that breakaway,and Crimeans then immediately held a plebiscite in March which overwhelmingly supported reuniting Crimea with Russia — Crimea had never voluntarily left Russia: the USSR’s leader Khrushchev had donated Russia’s Crimean region to Ukraine in 1954, and most Crimeans were always overwhelmingly opposed to that change.Then, elsewhere in Ukraine’s southeast, locals took over government buildings and refused to accept the new coup-imposed, anti-Russian Ukrainian Government. The newly appointed leaders of Ukraine didn’t like that, and were determined to stop the rebellion. They commenced an ethnic-cleansing campaign to eliminate the voters in the southeast In fact, the man whom the Obama-team chose to design the ethnic-cleansing program next had announced in June that there were going to be concentration-camps for everyone in the southeast who supported the breakaway-movement.

Ukraine is still  gripped by anarchy, while the opposition parties are being suppressed on daily basis, where All major parties favoring close political and economic relations with Russia were subjected to persecution in Ukraine.  “The Party of Regions, which also favors close political and economic relations with Russia, has been bullied into submission at the Rada. Its politicians have been physically assaulted in the parliament and have been portrayed on state-run television as ‘traitors’ and ‘servants to Moscow’,” Under  the government of Petro Poroshenko “Ukraine has rapidly become an intolerant and xenophobic country run by fascists and bigots who seek to eradicate any political party which has pro-Russian views. This country is now awash with neo-Nazi groups who patrol major Ukrainian cities – from Lvov to Kiev to Odessa. Ukraine has turned into “an official repository for racism, “The United States and the EU work with any group which will oppose Russia in everything.

It still was the Ukrainian Government which was bombing those ‘separatists’ villages , that’s doing the “escalation,” in the Ukrainian civil war that the U.S. and NATO had falsely started, and was funding their nazi regime there to perpetrate against those rebel Ukrainian villagers. They had got to clear the land in Ukraine’s southeast, so as to enable their oil companies to frack Ukraine’s gas. The gas fields in Ukraine’s southeast were seen as assets that can be sold off (“privatized”) to Western oil companies dirt-cheap by the same Ukrainian Government desperate to repay the nearly $30 billion that the U.S., EU, and IMF lent to that Government to finance their ethnic-cleansing program..However, the Ukrainian Government ultimately did fail to get rid of rebel Ukrainians.  Alll which means that U.S., Obama has, in effect, lost this Ukrainian war, and that the West’s taxpayers and recipients of government services will be forced to reimburse the IMF for losses on the more-than-$30-billion loans to Ukraine. The reason Obama had also lost is that the Russian Orthodox rebel residents in Ukraine’s southeast would rather fight to the death than yield to the also Catholic nazis. So Obama and Obama’s Ukrainian war installed nazis lost and were npt able to exterminate enough of the rebel ‘enemy’. The Local regional dominance of the U.S., EU, and Japan, and their war appetite is ending, their anti Russian sanctions had failed . The Western Pro Russian Alliance was defeated, is breaking up. Even Poland no longer opposes Russia.

.

The European Union’s outgoing High Commissioner for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton, said on Friday shelling of residential areas in eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk is inadmissible. Eastern Ukraine’s Donetsk has been under heavy shelling for several days.  On October 1 at least nine people were killed and another 30 were wounded when residential areas of Donetsk were shelled by the Ukrainian government forces.

.

The Western and  European countries had chosen “tactics of destruction for Ukraine” from the very beginning of the conflict. Even the  Kiev authorities make it clear that certain recent agreements, including the peace plan reached in Minsk on September 5, “are non-essential and can be easily disrupted.”  The wicked cannot rest with peace..

.

A total of 50% of infrastructure has been destroyed as a result of hostilities in Donbass (Donetsk and Luhansk regions in eastern Ukraine seeking independence from Kiev). “Forty-two percent of the industrial potential, half of infrastructure have been lost in the region, mines have been flooded, blast furnaces and coke-chemical batteries have been stopped,” Poroshenko, on a working visit to the western Ukrainian city of Lvov, said.

.

Next the “Ukraine’s economy is likely to suffer more than previously predicted because of the conflict in the east of the country, the World Bank has said.

It now says that GDP is likely to contract by 8% this year, compared with its previous prediction of 5%.

It also now expects a 1% contraction in 2015, instead of 2.5% growth.

The prediction comes as pro-Russian separatists and government forces vie for control of the airport in the eastern city of Donetsk.

The rebels say they occupy nearly all the airport, but the government disputes this.

The World Bank said the conflict had caused disruption in economic activity in the eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions, leading to a sharper decline in GDP.

The bank’s chief representative in Ukraine, Qimiao Fan, said the two regions accounted for about one-sixth of the country’s GDP, including a quarter of industrial output. “

.

” The bloody conflict in Ukraine’s east is severing the arteries that connect the nation’s economy.

The effects are being felt hundreds of miles from the unrest in industries as different as electricity and food processing. Power plants at the other end of the country are being starved of coal because of disruptions to mining, while in Kiev, one of Ukraine’s biggest poultry producers is looking abroad for incubatory eggs after output was halted at its facility near the war-ravaged city of Donetsk.

Months of fighting have left pro-Russian rebels in control of a swathe of Ukraine’s easternmost regions, which generated almost a quarter of industrial output at the start of the year. The knock-on effects of idle factories are seeping through an economy at risk of a 10 percent contraction in 2014, according to Ukraine’s central bank. The International Monetary Fundsays $17 billion may not be enough to avert a default.

“Everything is interlinked and companies in the rest of Ukraine will suffer,” Liza Ermolenko, an analyst at London-based Capital Economics Ltd., said by e-mail. “That’s on top of the indirect channels through which the conflict in the east affects the rest of the economy — the currency, banks, inflation and confidence channels.”  http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-10-01/war-severs-ukraine-s-industrial-arteries-as-economy-sinks.html

.

What goes around comes around.. Ukraine has no money to pay anything they are over 35 billion in debt and Poroshenko has pledged an extra 3 billion to his armed forces this year first the country will need to confront an old, internal enemy: corruption.  Transparency International ranks Ukraine 144 out of 177 countries on its corruption-perception index.

.

Even with Yanukovych gone, corruption is a problem that still plagues the country. But the country’s problem is much bigger than any single politician or administration. It is potentially significant, for instance, that the new parliament in Ukraine remains a club of millionaires in a country where the per-capita GDP is less than $4,000.

.

What the Ukraine  falsely still  think Russia and others  should be piping free gas into Ukraine while they try to sell it to others.. “And there is ample anecdotal evidence that the Ukrainian public service is pervasively corrupt, as many people who have tried to secure a business license, or even been pulled over for speeding, could attest.”

.

The IMF gave Ukraine money specifically to pay the old Russian gas bill, but the money was embezzled. Russia’s Gazprom simply wants paying for supplied goods. Is this evil?  “Ukraine’s gas supply issues worsened on Thursday after Hungary’s gas pipeline network operator FGSZ said it was indefinitely suspending gas supplies to the country for technical reasons, a move branded “unexpected and unexplained” by Ukraine state-owned gas firm Naftogaz”  Technical? Or have they just not paid the bill to Hungary either? Yes  Technically, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland are now not selling Russian gas to the Ukraine too. Pay your gas bills you bunch of thieving Ukrainian  shysters….

.

Who is the West supporting. Not the Ukrainian economy which can never recover now.  The West are supporting those who are busily looting the country. How much of the IMF money actually gets to benefit Ukraine? These are the people who killed hundreds of Europeans for a PR stunt.  The West are supporting the racists  neo-Nazis who want to remove all those of Russian descent from the country, by ANY means.  The West support their shelling of men, women and children in Eastern cities. The EU, and the West  have falsely actively backed and supported violent Ukrainian Neo-Nazis to riot, overthrow the democratically elected government of Ukraine and then push into East Ukraine and force the ethnic Russians to either flee or face genocide. Poverty,    the racist  ultra-nationalists in Ukraine got  everything they deserve  even for the shelling of innocent civilians in E Ukraine. and have found out the hard way no bad deed goes unpunished.. The nazis in Kiev made their bed…. now they lie in it.

.

And Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper do note-  Yes, Ukraine is BANKRUPT. BROKE. PENNILESS.  Ukraine is broke – and winter is coming… How broke is Ukraine? On a scale of one to 10, it is  10 and a half.  They all there  now have to stay in Ukraine and live there and try to make ends meet in their own  war torn and   bankrupt country.  Yes Ukraine is still bankrupt: morally, ethically, politically and financially even by the past actions of it’s own citizens.  Ukraine was already treading deep water before the  pro Russian war fiasco, a Ukrainian  war of  false  distraction, so still it  is facing a recession now really deep, and  all helped by the past and present internal Ukrainian corruption that ranges from the small scale to the incredibly immense..  thefts included. Russia had once offered  Ukraine 45 billion aid  and reduced energy costs and the, Kiev, neo- Nazi thugs ran into the warm arms of, Rasmussen, Kerry, McCain, Hague and Ashton and and its been here too   down hill ever since.  How much aid did you  offer to the mostly still crooked Ukraine? Since the present defeat of the Ukrainian troops and the neo-SS batallions fighting for Kiev it has been very quiet on the Ukraine Western Front except for the Ukrainian thugs..  Ukraine’s  present waging of a civil war is expensive, very costly and big payment is needed as the chickens are now roosting. Those false political, war advisers from abroad, NATO  to Ukraine haven’t really  talked about is how  totally  dependent Kiev’s economy is on Russia. In 2013, more than 60 percent of their exports went to post-Soviet countries. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s export levels have, officially, fallen by a gigantic 19 percent already this year too.  Industrial production has fallen off a cliff in Ukraine, down over 20 percent already this year and retail sales as well.   Also, what little high-end manufacturing Ukraine had was almost entirely beholden to the Russian military too. Ukraine imports 80 percent of its natural gas – and most of that comes from Russia. Kiev currently owes Gazprom, Russia’s state gas giant, $4.5 billion. In fact, Ukraine’s single most profitable export service (worth $3 billion annually) is transit fees for Gazprom’s access to other European markets. The  so called “friends” from the West, western media and Nato all won’t be around there for the drudgery of the real recession. IMF loans   are not p“aid” – and they must be repaid. As usual, the outside rich do very well and everyone else in Ukraine has to tough it. More false anti Russian  hate speech  mostly from the false western supporters of Ukraine helps no one..

PS:

Also the full story of its racial, genocidal Ukrainian  assault on eastern Ukraine has yet to come out. Estimates of the death toll exceed 10,000 and even Poroshenko has admitted that the Ukrainian army has lost 65% of its military hardware. And now mass graves are starting to turn up,in Eastern Ukraine,  where victims, including women, have been found with their hands tied behind their backs.

.

Anyone examining the MH17 wreckage comes to the same conclusion – it is riddled with bullet holes, specifically from a 30mm cannon mounted on an SU25 Ukrainian fighter. This no doubt also explains why the UK never released the contents of the black box flight recorders. No wreckage from a BUK missile was ever found at the scene.

.

Yulie Tymoshenko of the Fatherland Part became a billionaire while in office. Yatsenyuk was a salaried employee who became ‘filthy’ rich like the others in the political cabal of thieves and oligarchs of the Ukrainian ruling elite. Ukraine has 9 billionaires with most of their money  obtained by theft, fraud. Ukraine – it’s hard to believe anything that country propagates- a country that does just about everything to not pay its liability, a country with neither strength nor loyalty or responsibility, mostly practices  just more false diversions and lies.. and why does the West support them? Cause they lie a lot too.. this is what happens when you put Psychopaths in Government…  the Kiev government has overplayed its victim hood card and gilded the lily so many times that liars would blush at their effrontery.

.

Shale gas is extremely cheap to produce. It is so abundant under our very feet that to all intents and purpose it is unlimited. The only thing standing in our way of cheap, energy independence is the US financed, supported loony green enviro- traitors groups who spout their ‘religion’ of climate change and ‘pollution’ (there is absolutely no evidence of either) in order to let US sell more Gas. Some estimates conservatively say that the US has enough shale gas to provide all the country’s energy needs for over 5,000 years. The US is now completely energy independent and is actually exporting again. The US is building more LNG ports to ship more gas from US and so is Canada. The real reason they both do  want Russia out of Europe and Ukraine.so they can sell more gas to them

Robbed by Banks and credit card companies

 

Merchants have already  sued Credit card networks for alleged conspiring with banks to fix high swipe fees,  fees which are charged to businesses when consumers pay with credit or debit cards  which the Canadian government,  Finance Minister Joe Oliver , Joe.Oliver@parl.gc.ca,  claims are among the highest in the world.

Oil Politics

obamas-america

The reasons the US and Canada they now are telling Ukraine to join Nato and lose Russia.. Russia’s energy and over the next decade Canada’s Alberta Crude and the U.S. production of shale oil and gas rises and so even the United States becomes a major energy exporter. By 2020, according to administration estimates, the United States could be able to export more than 90 billion cubic meters of LNG annually, or about half of the gas Russia now supplies to Europe. There it is..

Its economy was for decades and is hugely inefficient even in the use of energy, lacking either a realistic cost structure or the means to meter usage. Furthermore, its energy industry and regulatory system are corrupt, an inheritance of they many past previous corrupt regimes that continued to follow Soviet-style practices long after the USSR had disappeared. In fact, their past governments had close ties to organized crime even now.. Kiev’s past and present governments have done too little to break the power of the country’s indigenous energy mafia. Kiev needs to clean up its act if it wants to Join the EU.However, it will likely still take a long time even decades more.. in part because many Ukrainians will not want to give up the benefits they receive from the present inefficient and corrupt system. That still won’t solve any of Ukraine’s major problems, nor the use of any of the US military forces.
Kiev’s use of volunteer paramilitaries to stamp out the Russian-backed Donetsk and Luhansk “people’s republics”, proclaimed in eastern Ukraine in March, should send a shiver down Europe’s spine. Recently formed battalions such as Donbas, Dnipro and Azov, with several thousand men under their command, are officially under the control of the interior ministry but their financing is murky, their training inadequate and their ideology often alarming.
The Azov men use the neo-Nazi Wolfsangel (Wolf’s Hook) symbol on their banner and members of the battalion are openly white supremacists, or anti-Semites.

In what is considered by many to be the second major Jewish exodus (following the story of Passover),  more than 2 million Jews  have left the countries of the former Soviet Union shortly before and after its collapse, mainly for the United States, Germany,  Canada and Israel and all mainly for economic reasons, hoping to get richer. There are fewer than 200,000 self-identified Jews in Russia today.  Anti-Semitic incidents have been on the rise in a number of European countries, including Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland,  and Italy. Much of this is related to tension between Jewish and Muslim communities and the rightful criticism of Israel’s clearly  immoral acts in Palestine. It’s impossible to deny that acts of incitement and violence against Arabs have multiplied in the Jewish society. Arab workers are reporting a rise in Job Discrimination as well.   Israel practices falsely that it’s legitimate to inflict suffering on innocent people in order to discourage all terrorism. Israel steals Palestinian lands too. In Europe the  rise of anti-Jewish sentiment has been most notable in France, home to Europe’s largest populations of both Jews and Muslims. 24 percent of the French population and 21 percent of the German population still seem to harbor some anti-Semitic attitudes and all  this rebuttal isn’t   just a problem with  Muslims…   **

.

Canada is a professing Christian nation where 75 percent of Canadians consider themselves Christians..It may sound alarmist but one of the biggest that Christianity and Christians today are facing is the invasion of their churches by Jews who bring their ungodly values, false Judaic doctrines with them and they the Jews do often try to thrust them unto Christians. Christianity is a new religion and not an extension or a continuation of the old testament Judaism as Christians do solely follow the teachings of the New Testament as detailed by Jesus and the first Apostles. It should be noted that the largest settlements of Jews has occurred after world War II and has occurred in North America and in Israel mainly by Russian Jews. Do also note that the common reference to the Russian Mafia is solely consisting of Russian speaking Jews since no Russian citizen has been allowed to immigrate out of Russia the last 100 years due to the prohibitive cost of a Russian exit visit. Do also see      the truth  

.

Now to me it only makes sense that the New Testament was written in Greek. Think of who Paul was: the “Apostle to the Gentiles”. Obviously he was writing to Greek speaking people, so he would write to them in Greek. There are more reasons, but this is an obvious one. I have run into a new reason why some people dispute the notion that Jesus spoke Aramaic. It has to do with the passion among some Muslims for an Aramaic-speaking Jesus.  Aramaic is a Semitic language, related to Hebrew, Arabic, and similar languages. Only during the time of the Assyrian Empire (8th century BC), Aramaic became used throughout the Ancient Near East as the language of diplomacy not at the time of Jesus here on earth During and before the time of Jesus, there wasn’t just one version of Aramaic being used in Judea and beyond. Even many grave inscriptions around Jerusalem at the time of Jesus are not in Aramaic, not  in Hebrew but in Greek.. Muslims falsely use the idea that Jesus spoke Aramaic as a support for the truth of Islam. Jews falsely  use the idea that Jesus spoke Hebrew  as a support for the truth of Judaism  A few scholars believe that people in Nazareth spoke Hebrew as their primary language. This is possible, but unlikely.  Unfortunately, many of those who make the case for a Hebrew-speaking Jesus seem to be motivated by something other than a desire to know which language(s) he actually spoke.) So what evidence do we have that Jesus spoke Hebrew? We do not have in the New Testament Gospels a quotation of Jesus in Hebrew    As one who believes about Jesus all the things orthodox Christians do, it would not impact my faith one jot or tittle if Jesus spoke Hebrew rather than Aramaic, or Greek rather than Hebrew.but the truth is Jesus spoke Greek still..Now, you don’t have to spend the next several years learning ancient languages because English KJV translation of the biblical text is very much  reliable it was based on the Tyndale translation of the Greek too..The question of Jesus’ primary language is settled if we knew what people in Nazareth in the first decades of the first century A.D. were speaking and the Romans made it clear.. Greek or Latin only..  and we have no  evidence for the common use of Hebrew in Nazareth and the surrounding region of Galilee.it is worth nothing that Greek was commonly used in certain strata of Galilean society. This began when Alexander the Great conquered the region in 332 B.C. Under his rule, and under the rule of those who followed him (the Ptolemies and the Seleucids), Greek was the language of government and commerce. The Romans used Latin for official communication, but Greek was the common language of the Empire.  In fact, Nazareth was a short walk from Sepphoris, one of the major cities of Galilee, where Greek would have been the everyday language of the marketplace.The earliest manuscripts of the New Testament Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John – are written in Greek.  Yes there is overwhelming evidence, both historical and linguistic that shows that the New testament texts were never originally written in Hebrew, as some  Jews claim but they  are known liars.. Show us  this original Hebrew transcript of Matthew.. none exists..None.. all is in Greek..  and scholars have not found a single manuscript in Aramaic or Hebrew that predates the Greek  Not one..  The New Testament, however, was written in Greek. This seems strange, since you might think it would be either Hebrew or Aramaic. However, Greek was the language of scholarship during the years of the composition of the New Testament from 50 to 100 AD. The fact is that many Jews could not even read Hebrew anymore, and this disturbed the Jewish leaders a lot! So, around 300 BC a translation of the Old Testament from Hebrew into Greek was undertaken, and it was completed around 200 BC. Gradually this Greek translation of the Old Testament, called the Septuagint, was widely accepted and was even used in many synagogues. It also became a wonderful missionary tool for the early Christians, for now the Greeks could read God’s Word in their own tongue. So again the New Testament authors wrote in Greek. They did not, however, use really high-class or classical Greek, but a very common and everyday type of Greek. For many years some scholars ridiculed the Greek of the New Testament because many of its words were strange to those who read the writings of the great Greek classical authors such as Plato and Aristotle. But later many records were uncovered of ordinary people, and amazingly there were the same common terms used in everyday speech! The ridicule dried up accordingly. The prominent first century Roman  historian Josephus was a Jew himself who wrote in Greek.. it should be understood that there is a long history of “Hellenism” (Greek culture/influence) among the Jewish people, both in ancient Alexandria as well as in the Promised Land itself. Ossuaries dating from the Second Temple period indicate Greek artwork and Greek versions of Hebrew names  In  Biblical Archaeological Review , Pieter W. Van Der Horst writes, “One of the most surprising facts about funerary inscriptions [extant from ancient Palestine dating from 300 B.C. to 500 A.D] is that most of them are in Greek – approximately 70 percent; about 12 percent are in Latin; and only 18 percent are in Hebrew or Aramaic.” Furthermore, since the time of Alexander the Great (c. 330 B.C), many of the Jewish High Priests had become  Hellenists ; which led to the rejection of the Temple by the Essene Community and eventually to the later Maccabean revolts.  Even the Dead Sea Scrolls include Greek texts among the Hebrew and Aramaic. ; So it’s clear that Hellenistic culture and Greek language were pervasive influences in Israel both before, during, and after the time when Jesus lived in ancient Israel   and scholars have not found a single manuscript in Aramaic or Hebrew that predates the Greek all of the ancient textual evidence for the New Testament is in Koine Greek, and scholars have not found a single manuscript in Aramaic or Hebrew that predates the Greek.  The New Testament is by far the best-attested (and best preserved) literature of antiquity, with manuscript evidence dating back to the first century. ; For example, the Magdalen Fragments  are written in a style of  Koine Greek that was current in the 1st Century A.D. during the very lives of the apostles. Indeed, ancient papyrus expert Carsten Thiede and other scholars regard certain fragments from the Gospel of Matthew to be an eyewitness account.   We have some anecdotal evidence of a   gospel that underlies the others gospel accounts,   but it is clear — both from history and from the textual evidence we have – that the Holy Spirit chose to use Koine (i.e., “common”) Greek as the language to reach out to the world.  This is true, incidentally, of the Torah and Nakh, which were   also  translated into Koine Greek (i.e., the Septuagint, or LXX).  Many of the oldest Biblical fragments among the Dead Sea Scrolls correspond more closely with the LXX than with the (later) Masoretic text, and indeed we have evidence of Koine Greek manuscripts that were discovered in the Qumran caves themselves .
.
Now when Jesus went into the synagogue and was handed the scroll of Isaiah that that scroll was written in Greek?and the the New Testament Gospels do include non-Greek words in the text (spelled with Greek letters). And some of these words are Aramaic ?So, while Jesus’ use of them may reflect  his Aramaic speech, we can’t even be 100% sure of this. And we do not have in the New Testament Gospels a quotation of Jesus in Hebrew ..  Unfortunately, many of those who make the case for a Hebrew-speaking Jesus seem to be motivated by something other than a desire to know which language(s) he actually spoke.) The so-called “biblical case” for the Hebrew speaking Jesus rests mainly on one verse in, not in the Gospels, but in Acts of the Apostles. You  absurdly cannot make a major statement with one fact, one verse.. when you have a whole Greek New testament.. one cannot use this as proof that he always spoke Hebrew, or mainly spoke Hebrew, or even spoke Hebrew in any other circumstance. In no other place does the New Testament tell us that Jesus spoke Hebrew.  The fact that the Gospels are written in Greek shows that   most of the earliest Christians, including some who followed Jesus during his earthly ministry, knew Greek and used it often, perhaps as their first language. Many Jewish writings from the era of Jesus were written in Greek, including works such as 2 Maccabees and 1 Esdras. Other Hebrew writings were being translated into Greek in Jerusalem (the book of Esther, for example, in 114 B.C.). Speaking of Jerusalem, scholars have found some ninety Greek inscriptions on ossuaries (boxes for bones) that date to around the time of Jesus and were found in or around Jerusalem. Ever since Alexander the Great conquered Judea  in 332 B.C., Greek had been the language of government and, increasingly, commerce and scholarship. Though Aramaic continued to be spoken by many, Greek grew in its popularity and influence. In the time of Jesus, well-educated Jews, mainly those of the upper classes, would have known and used Greek. So would those who were involved in trade or government Get wise and learn the truth.   Jesus was not handed the dead sea scrolls.. he read from the Greek Scroll Bible.   The presence and pervasiveness of Greek in Judea is demonstrated by a discovery in the Nahal Hever region of the Judean Desert near the Dead Sea. In a cave, a scroll was found that contains substantial portions of the minor prophets in Greek. The so-called Nahal Hever Minor Prophets Scroll, dated around the time of Jesus, shows the influence and popularity of Greek, even among highly religious Jew..     In Matthew 8:5-13, for example, Jesus entered into dialogue with a Roman centurion. The centurion almost certainly spoke in Greek. And, as Matthew tells the story, he and Jesus spoke directly, without a translator.       The same could be said about Jesus’ conversation with Pontius Pilate prior to his crucifixion (Matthew 27:11-14; John 18:33-38). If Jesus knew enough Greek to converse with a Roman centurion and a Roman governor, where did he learn it? at Home and in school.. Jesus’ hometown was a short walk from Sepphoris, which was a major city and one in which Greek was spoken.
.
  Christianity is a new Religion that is not an updated Judaism, or a revised Judaism.. Most Messianic Jews too now are also still going to hell.. as they are firstly not willing to give up all to follow Jesus . For some Jews Jesus must have spoken Hebrew to some of the people, otherwise some how his mission as the Messiah would have been deficient. Some Jews are were worried that if Jesus spoke Greek he did not care for the Jews basically..  No one still even knows what the Jewish Culture was like at the time of Jesus since the Romans burned all the Jewish books and Library and none exist today thus..  People who are still falsely  hung up on a Jewish culture,  scripture still need the Holy Spirit to explain it anyway and most people do not have Him, the Jews especially..  
.
 Why are the Jews mostly falsely so argumentative and hung up on a Hebrew Jesus? when most of the Jews have rejected him anyway and are mostly going to hell.. Read my posts and learn.. and stop trying to justify any perversions of the reality.. There is no existing  evidence of a Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.. never has been and anyone has yet  had  failed to prove it too..  The fact that Jesus may have spoken Greek may help us to think differently about him and his ministry. For many years it was common to envision Jesus as growing up in the countryside of Galilee, far removed from multi-cultural hodge-podge of the Roman Empire. But this idealized view of the rustic Jesus is far from the truth. Though he grew up in a small town, he was not at all cut off from the broader Roman world. In fact Jesus grew up with ample exposure to Greco-Roman language, culture, commerce, politics, religion, and philosophy. When he eventually entered Jerusalem to confront the Roman and Jewish authorities there – and to give his life in the process – Jesus was no naive country bumpkin making his first trip to the big city. Rather he was well aware of powers and perils he faced, and he faced these knowing, as he ultimately said to Pontius Pilate (in Greek, I believe), “My kingdom is not from this world” (John 18:36).    Given the Holy Spirit, not just excellence of English translations of the Bible by translators who have mastered all of the relevant languages, it’s not necessary for the ordinary Christian to learn Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic in order to understand the teaching of Jesus .and his teachings.. In fact too many Hebrew , Aramaic and Greek speaking persons are still very ungodly  persons.

Note the most significant aspects of the little-known Lautenberg Amendment, Public Law 101-167, which was enacted November 21, 1989 and has been renewed annually by the U.S. Congress.  “Lautenberg measure [that] gave refugee status to people from historically persecuted groups without requiring them to show that they had been singled out” and noted that the senator “estimated that 350,000 to 400,000 Jews entered the United States under the 1990 law”.The death of New Jersey Senator Frank R. Lautenberg , the son of Jewish immigrants  from Poland and Russia, was in Paterson, New Jersey on June 4, 2013. Lautenberg, 89, died of viral pneumonia, Lautenberg was the oldest serving U.S. senator and the last lawmaker in the chamber to have served in World War II. He was  a vocal advocate for the State of Israel and the American Jewish community.

.

The 25 year old  US Lautenberg Amendment, is used mainly for the Jews, allows those groups covered by the legislation (nationals from the former Soviet Union, Estonia, Latvia or Lithuania who are Jews, Evangelical Christians, Ukrainian Catholics or Ukrainian Orthodox; nationals of Vietnam, Laos, or Cambodia; and Jews, Christians, Baha’is and other religious minorities from Iran) to prove they are eligible for special refugee status “with a credible, but not necessarily individual, fear of persecution.” By contrast, the US Immigration and Nationality Act “requires prospective refugees to establish a well-founded fear of persecution on a case-by-case basis.” Those covered by the US Lautenberg Amendment are eligible for Special Cash Assistance and for US Federal Public Assistance Programs including, but not limited to, Social Security, Medicaid, Food Stamps, and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.  370,000 refugees were admitted from the Former Soviet Union in the first ten years of the Lautenberg Amendment. Also included in the continuing resolution was $10 million in Homeland Security funding for securing the non-profits organizations. Most of such allocations in the past have gone to Jewish organizations. Although Lautenberg maintained that his amendment was religion-related, the UJA-Federation of New York’s Jewish Community Study of New York: 2011 Community Report indicates that “almost a fourth” of Russian-speaking Jews in New York “consider themselves belonging to no religion.” “ The admission of former Soviet Jews” under this “special” status meant that “former Soviet Jews were eligible for eventual permanent resident status as well as access to cash assistance, language courses, and job-training programs normally provided only to bona fide refugees.” “To many Hispanic advocates, the inequity was obvious.”   Numerous Jewish organizations including the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, the Chicago Jewish Federation, involved for years in absorbing Jewish and other refugees into the city, also has been a lead group in lobbying for Lautenberg Amendment.

.

There are different definitions of who is a Jew, which makes Jewish population estimates a very complex science. In demographic terms, a “core” Jewish population includes people who self-identify as Jewish in social surveys, and do not have another monotheistic religion. It also includes people who may not recognise themselves as Jewish, but have Jewish parents and have not adopted a different religious identity. It further includes all converts to Judaism by any procedure, as well as other people who declare themselves to be Jewish even without having undergone conversion. So a “core” Jewish population overlaps with, but does not coincide with, the halachic (Jewish legal) definition of who is a Jew, or for that matter, any other normative definition.  http://www.jpr.org.uk/map

Can Bell do it’s job and provide me now their proper services?

Net neutrality” has been built into the fabric of the Internet since its creation — but it is also a principle that we cannot take for granted.  We cannot allow Internet service providers (ISPs) to restrict the best access or to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace for services and ideas.   So the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has to implement the strongest possible rules to protect net neutrality.” We cannot allow Internet service providers (ISPs) to restrict the best access or to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace for services and ideas,” “I believe the FCC should create a new set of rules protecting net neutrality and ensuring that neither the cable company nor the phone company will be able to act as a gatekeeper, restricting what you can do or see online.” Obama said in a statement released by the White House.  President Obama’s call for “net neutrality” – the notion that any and all content should be treated equally by Internet providers – should cause the Federal Communications Commission to regulate broadband service like a utility as a way to protect consumers’ ability to access all content without a threat of connectivity being throttled. Us President Obama called for prohibiting ISPs from blocking or deliberately slowing any legal content. His proposals also include a recommendation to mostly ban paid-for “fast-lane” access, in which a content provider refusing to pay extra would be subject to slower Internet transmission and to  reclassify consumer broadband Internet service and regulate it as if it’s a utility – like electricity and water – as many consumer advocacy groups have asked for a similar strategy to protect unfettered access.  The simple, common-sense  rules include:

  • No blocking.  If a consumer requests access to a website or service, and the content is legal, your ISP should not be permitted to block it.  That way, every player — not just those commercially affiliated with an ISP — gets a fair shot at your business.
  • No throttling.  Nor should ISPs be able to intentionally slow down some content or speed up others — through a process often called “throttling” — based on the type of service or your ISP’s preferences.
  • Increased transparency.  The connection between consumers and ISPs — the so-called “last mile” — is not the only place some sites might get special treatment. The  FCC to make full use of the transparency authorities the court recently upheld, and if necessary to apply net neutrality rules to points of interconnection between the ISP and the rest of the Internet.
  • No paid prioritization.  Simply put: No service should be stuck in a “slow lane” because it does not pay a fee.  That kind of gatekeeping would undermine the level playing field essential to the Internet’s growth.  An explicit ban on paid prioritization and any other restriction that has a similar effect.
 Canadians can access broadband using either wire line or wireless facilities but in order to meet the high demands of cell phones, Canada’s major telecommunications firms and their subs they are  failing to deliver the capacities  as originally promised, Canada’s major telecommunications firms and their subs they are  not keeping their contractual obligations, are falsely  cutting back on internet capacity and speeds,  so all of this is still a major issue with Canada’s major telecommunications firms and their subs..  while  they advertise a certain speed but likely you next still only get half of it as they cap their downloads and speeds..
.
Sadly, as a recent survey indicates, 9-out-of-ten Canadians have no clue that their use of the Internet has been so heavily clipped by ‘market forces’: bandwidth caps, excess use charges, and restrictions on what people can and cannot do with their Internet connections in the major providers ‘acceptable user policies’.
.
 In the old dial-up days the most a user could reasonably consume would be 56K, and that only under ideal circumstances. An ISP could service approximately 28 dial-up customers with a single T1 without oversubscribing, but since few customers continually used their maximum, oversubscribing was common, sometimes as much as 20 to 1. ISPs made money and users rarely saw congestion outside of their modems.; Broadband has changed all that. Now, a single broadband customer can consume a T1 all by him or herself. So they  major telecommunications firms and their subs next lie and claim that  Broadband has been a money losing proposition for just about every ISP there is, as deployment and support costs are huge and monthly income is small while  they profess to make vast, enormous  amount of money from their cell phone usages..However, by international comparative standards, investment in Canada has been weak, inadequate.   Yes the ISPs and Cell phones firms had  mostly  lied, misadvertised the services, oversubscribed so much they falsely and  routinely do slow next down  your connection and  that’s why it can work FINE at 4:00 am when 90% of people are in bed…
.
Acanac itself thus also  caps during the business day.. even because the ISP’s falsely had originally promised quite a bit but there’s still no real full  services from them making use of what they were trying to sell to us and partly because what they were, are also now selling is far from what would be needed for any significant customer. Creating “caps” is plain crap . It is a too easy way for them.
.
 So many persons switched to cable where there is not the same  need to cap. (So to speak).  Bell’s own  recent comments about actual costs suggests that it relies on similar ranges to provide a best guess at cost per gigabyte. Yes there is no apparent link between the ‘excess usage charges’ that the dominant players are charging (i.e. from .50 cents per Gigabit (GB) to $5 per GB), and the cost of bandwidth. Experts peg the cost per gigabit as being anywhere between .01 cents and 10 cents. Even if we take the high end of this range, excess usage charges still entail an extortionate 500 to 5000 percent mark-up on costs. Canada stands alone in terms of the near universal use of ‘bandwidth caps’ and excess usage fees for Internet use. It is sadly immoral,  ludicrous  that Bell itself is is charging customers at least 10x more than the actual costs. Bell does fudge the costs numbers to support whatever self-serving claim they make.  It’s “free money” as far as they are concerned. Once established, it will be hard to remove. Especially since they can use such a scheme to constrain usage or eliminate competition.
.

Canadians are even paying more for  all communications services. Canada’s broadcast and telecom regulator has released new numbers on how much Canadians spend on communications services, revealing the total bill for the average household climbed to $191 per month last year.

The Federal Trade Commission says AT&T’s practice of slowing down the connection speeds of unlimited-data customers who tap excessive amounts of data is a failure to deliver on the promise of “unlimited.” As a result, the FTC on Tuesday filed a federal court complaint against AT&T, charging the wireless provider with misleading customers who signed up for an unlimited-data plan only to see their connection slowed in an industry process called “throttling. “AT&T promised its customers ‘unlimited’ data, and in many instances, it has failed to deliver on that promise,” . “The issue here is simple: ‘unlimited’ means unlimited.”  http://www.cnet.com/news/ftc-sues-at-t-for-limiting-speeds-on-unlimited-data-customers/

Consumers are being caught in the middle of greedy telecomm companies.. It’s the Telcomm companies who have rooked us all and laughing all the way the bank.

.

Bell  too now has made money not only by their too often unjustifiable  rates increase but also by their false extra billings. Bell is not at all known as a decent, moral company, holding to acceptable professionals standards, for that matter clearly too none of the major Canada telecommunication firms are, rather monetary greed has overtaken them all.. Bell often claimed that it was not making enough money but still became rich enough to buy CTV.. The Bell customer complaints still abound too.

.

When  I had agree to go into a contract with my internet provider at a fixed  fee, for specific services, including repairs, this is not an opportunity for the internet provider  Acanac next to  falsely, unscrupulously  try to shaft me with extra billing of 100 dollars to check my internal phone line, a fee that I  had already paid last year, and what they want me now to pay it every year too?  as it seems to be the common practice instead of rightfully offering me their past free promised  support services.

.

Now I have noticed that for years when it rains my internet services is crappy, slows down.. and recently my browsers have been very slow in loading, and I cannot even watch the news video at CTV news or at the National Post cause they cut out.. Now I have suspected the problem is squirrels, there are 6 in my back yard this week.. Note this also “ A Winnipeg man says squirrels are taking a bite out his telephone lines. James Mattson, who lives on Christie Road in south Winnipeg, said it’s been happening since last spring. “There’s something in that wire that the squirrels seem to snack on. What they’ll do is they’ll burrow into the outer core of the wire which is vinyl or plastic and then there’s bundles of wires inside and they’ll pick away at that,” he said.  James Mattson points to the telephone lines that squirrels have damaged near his home. (Jill Coubrough/CBC) Yes it’s impacting Mattson’s services. His phone, Internet. “It’s frustrating. It just keeps on happening and happening ,” he said, adding it’s happened nine times in two months. So squirrels damaging wires is a common industry problem. Deal with it.. and stop falsely lying, passing the buck as it being my problem solely.

Bell insistence that it needs proof that all of my own computer system has been first tested, falsely still treats me like me being computer illiterate.. 

Of course they have all been tested… why is it that the system slow downs only occur mostly on rainy days.. PS it does not rain in my house…

PS they still have yet to fix the problem

They claim they have to first replace the modem to see if it is the problem and then they will check the exterior phone lines.. Rubbish they replaced the modem now even 3 times and what next?? Still bad services..

Again as to how to make a complaint

Step 1 – Contact a customer service representative discuss any concerns you have about your service preferably not in writing cause most of them seem not to be able to read English.

If you’re not completely satisfied with the resolution at this step,   proceed to step 2.

Step 2 – Speak with a pretentious, useless in denial supervisor
If you’re not completely satisfied with the resolution provided at this step,   proceed to step 3. 

Step 3 – Contact the pretentious  Customer Relations Centre and they will gladly  disconnect your services

 Note: You must complete the first two steps of the escalation process to have your problem supposedly to be resolved in the most efficient manner for them, not yours..

Additional Useless steps

.

A – If you were not satisfied with the resolution provided in the previous steps, you may file a complaint with the Commissioner for Complaints for Telecommunications Services (CCTS). The CCTS is an agency independent of the telecommunications industry. Their mandate is to resolve complaints of individual and small business retail customers about their telecommunications services.
.
If you have a complaint about your services, including local or long distance phone service, mobile phone service or Internet service, you must try to resolve it with Bell before contacting the CCTS. If you have done so and have been unable to reach a satisfactory resolution, CCTS may be able to help you, free of charge.Learn more about CCTS at

This is the worse service I have ever been given in my life.” “ But the customer service is really disappointing.   “  “. Speed has been on the slow to very slow side and I have had my connection lost completely 3 times.   “   “ I used this service for almost 3 years, and wana say that Acanac service becomes the worse and worse, so I cancelled my contract with it. Reasons: 1. Low speed, 2.I didn’t have the entrance to the Internet during several hours almost every day for the last half year. 3. When I tried to reach their technical support service it was a real headache for me. I think they simply ignored my request, but they answering me immediately when I sent the cancelation notice to them. I have to state that Acanac doesn’t care about it’s customers.  “  “  -Service was good, until your service slows or or stops working and you have to reach out for help.  “  “  Finally get useless support email 16 hours after sending in my ticket suggesting I check the cable to the demarc etc etc. Issues continued for a week, customer service never improved. “ “  absolutely terrible customer service. “ “ Acanac has made my life a living hell. Telephone wait times are 45-50 minutes if it is your lucky day or no one answers. Even if someone answers you will quickly realise the guy has no clue or has no inclination to help you. Once the guy was dumb enough to ask me “why did you not send us an email?” Duh!!! I do not have internet?!!! SO PLEASE, PLEASE BE WITHOUT AN INTERNET THAN SIGNING UP WITH THIS COMPANY. THEY ARE HORRIBLE. “  “ However, when you need technical support, you could be put on the phone waiting for hours..  “   Much is promised when inquiring by their sales people, however tech support is non-existent. DO NOT USE UNLESS YOU ENJOY SUFFERING. Tech response is hidden behind a very primitive email service.   DSL connection speed is no better than dial up. “  “Internet goes down at least 4- 6 times a year. You have to call them to get good customer service. Their email and text service is the worst, specially the email response is just a copy and paste , they don’t even read what your problem is.” “  After 2 years, I have had enough – Never again, and I will make sure I tell as many people as I can to never give this company any business “  http://www.canadianisp.ca/cgi-bin/isp_comment_totals.cgi?f=Comments&ispid=52

Let me be clear that the assigned personnel at the CCTS are also technically incompetent, likely, clearly  another typical useless buck passing  government employee who cannot likely find  a real job in the private sector.. Months after I  had filed my original complaints, they phone back to me and ask the same useless questions am I familiar with their  own review process.. so how can I be familiar with their review process when 2 separate persons have phoned me in the last 3 months said they were reviewing my full original complaints and none have ever yet come back with a single credible fact, find, report.. these CCTS people doing the report even still now falsely seem to want me or prepare a full report myself, with a  full detailed backup so they can rubber stamp it next merely..  she wants more information from me Cause my past writings to them are too long to read she said, to review CCTS  said.. how all absurd.  Useless  CCTS personnel  just like those at Acanac. Acanac useless solution to deal with my internet problem was to uselessly replace the modem 3 times even..  
 .
CCTS do note that my original contract with ACANAC paid for my MasterCard as well as the terms of agreements are all there with Acanac and so also also all of my last up letters of complaints to accent about their poor services and their poor Reponses. The undeniable obvious evidence  that my internet speed has been capped is there too.

No direct proof but lies, distortions, insinuations by Stephen Harper

Ukraine’s  own tax cheats stole billions from the country’s coffers and not Putin, Russia or the Russian supporters and now what guarantees are there  that this will not happen again next also with the Canadian present Monetary aid?   http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/09/30/ukraines-reality/

.

Ukraine’s own deputy tax minister says fraud scams diverted $11bn from the country’s budget over just three years.  http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jun/11/ukraine-tax-scam

. The present poverty striken Ukrainian Government of Kiev says 125 Ukrainian serviceman have been killed since the start of a military operation to defeat its own Ukrainian people, the so-called Pro Russian separatists in May. Scores of these separatist fighters have also been killed in fighting, as well as an unknown number of civilians. There is no end in sight to this conflict.. The crisis in Ukraine erupted late last year when protesters took to the streets against an unelected leader in Ukraine as the existing leader was overthrown in February, Russia also had annexed the Crimea region in March and the further  uprising in the east began in April of this year and continues   . The US Republican President lied to us about WMD and took us to war in Iraq….The US Democrats now are taking us to a possible false war in Ukraine.. Wow!   The Smart People have enough intelligence to know what is a pack of lies and misinformation. The source itself now reporting the lies doesn’t change the fact that the original statements are  still lies and propaganda. Apparently neither Harper or  Obama, Kerry, or any of that typical fascist administration have any concept of honesty.  The more Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Obama and John Kerry/State Department talk about Putin and Russia , it becomes painfully clear how ignorant,   far out of touch of with reality they all are still they do submit NO REAL direct proof but lies, distortions, insinuations  so I do not wonder that they are really unaware of their complete lack of credibility they do have in half of  the world’s eyes.   Western governments and media are being too often still  used to create unbelievable lies even about various countries and their people. They falsely try to  manipulate their people in  any way they can. However, even now that people in western countries have access to the truth and other points of view, so their governments are  more and more becoming hysterical . “The US State Department itself is becoming a news organization, packaging propaganda messages into an easily consumable format, and accusing others of propaganda is at the very least hypocritical” .  They now give a totally one-sided view deal of what is happening in Ukraine,.  when you have a war going on, you know that the first casualty in war, any war, is truth..  Local news media portals are are still all moderated, they never allow any comments that are not in line with prevalent government opinion.   The role of the US in sending various secret service there, visit of the head of the CIA to the Ukraine does not really gets discussed.   Interesting, how hypocrisy rhymes with democracy.. The US spends $5 billion to overthrow a dully elected government in Ukraine–and then Mr. Kerry has the temerity to describe the Russian presence in Crimea as an “occupation” when the Russia and have been there for hundreds of years already.. Kerry is throwing a temper tantrum because today much of Europe has economic ties with another democratic European power   “John kerry looks like a snake oil salesman in a skeleton costume. he represents evil and is a walking virus like the black plague. he is walking death”.    When is America going to stay in its own backyard and clean up its mounting mess?   The economy in the West is going to tank and they need a war to blame it on.  Notice the US own  failure rate in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Korea, Vietnam,  ongoing failure in the Middle East  peace negotiations and where else next?  The American government it does not trust its own people, And by that, they must be spied upon too…    The world will no longer stand by to meekly accept conceited arrogant so-called leadership by the  myopic fools like Harper, Obama,  Kerry, NEVER!  So the Canadians, Americans/British and those Europeans weak enough to stick with the greedy Anglo-Saxon can stay in their own little small ever  reducing empire.   A policy of real and fair cooperation with Russia could have achieved peaceful  goals far better than a constant

antagonization

and false containment of the Russians.. Many of my local   Russian friends ask me “why do they say such a nonsense in US about Ukraine and Russia?It seems they have never been there, and they are blind and ignorant when it comes to facts”. And they don`t care about all of us, all they want is to convince their own what is  truth. They just have their own false  reality. But for how long? . see also http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/04/19/those-lying-spin-dopctors-think-we-are-all-as-stupid-as-they-are/

The reasons the US and Canada they now are telling Ukraine to join Nato and lose Russia.. Russia’s energy and over the next decade Canada’s Alberta Crude and the U.S. production of shale oil and gas rises and so even the United States becomes a major energy exporter. By 2020, according to administration estimates, the United States could be able to export more than 90 billion cubic meters of LNG annually, or about half of the gas Russia now supplies to Europe. There it is. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/04/19/those-lying-spin-dopctors-think-we-are-all-as-stupid-as-they-are/

AND WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF CANADA. DON’T THE POLITICIANS CARE ABOUT THE CITIZENS GOOD WELFARE?

YOU HAVE TO BE  A REALLY IGNORANT CANADIAN  NOT TO KNOW THAT CANADIANS RIGHTFULlY GRIPE OFTEN ABOUT THE BAD POLICE SERVICES, BAD COPS TOO OFTEN–  THE PRICE GOUGING OIL COMPANIES,   ABOUT THE BAD, GREEDY, IMMORAL TELECOMMUNICATION FIRMS, AND THE BAD, PRETENTIOUS  POLITICIANS IN  CANADA!

.

WINNIPEG – The Manitoba government is proposing a law that would ban misleading advertising about Internet, telephone, cable TV and other services. The Consumer Protection Amendment Act, introduced in the legislature Thursday, would require companies to prominently display the full cost of each service — not just a discount introductory rate. companies would also have to be upfront about any extra fees for equipment rentals, installation and other items. There will also be limits on cancellation fees, similar to an existing law on cellphone contracts.  Consumer Protection Minister Ron Lemieux says the province has heard complaints from people who felt confused about the full price of cable TV, Internet bills and telephone services. “We’re just saying to the companies out there that are offering these services — be upfront, let the customer know what (they’re) going to be paying for.” The law would also cover satellite TV and radio services and monitored alarm systems. Fines would range from $1,000 to $5,000 dollars and, in more serious cases, the government could apply to the courts for higher penalties.

 

The government announced the plan last fall and asked for public input, and some 360 people responded. Many people said they had been enticed by low, introductory prices and were not clear on what the price would be once the discount period ended, Lemieux said. The move was welcomed by the Consumers Association of Canada.

What at the Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s residence ?

OTTAWA – An intoxicated 18-year-old woman was taken to hospital early Sunday morning, Easter Morning,  after she was found on the driveway at 24 Sussex Dr. The RCMP say paramedics were called to the prime minister’s official residence on the weekend in response to a medical call. The call came in the “early morning hours” of Sunday, April 20. So the woman had been attending a party at 24 Sussex that night?

Report says underage woman treated for potential alcohol poisoning

The Prime Minister Stephen Harper had   professed to be an evangelical Christian, and evangelical Christians they do not serve or drink Alcohol..

The Prime Minister’s Office refused to state whether Stephen or Laureen Harper were present during the party, and whether this was a celebration of Ben’s 18th birthday.

Look how many of the Canadian News Media lies and spins the story, many try to say that the girl was not in the Home, residence.. but  the RCMP guards the gate to the property so they knew she was there.. so  is this how the Prime Minister’s Christian family celebrates Easter, having a drunken orgy?

Does MP Dian Ablonczy also drink alcohol? She is a professing Christian evangelical now too.. do other evangelical Conservatives MPs drink Alcohol?
