Now we all can know, see he Trudeau is crazy

.
Any family with children will be very concerned with the fact that marijuana will be more accessible to their kids. To most Canadians, marijuana legalization isn’t even on their radar of priorities.   Trudeau’s policy also leads one to wonder what bad drugs he’d legalize next?
.
Now we all can know, see he crazy and that the Liberal leader, he and his party will sell his soul to the devil to get elected..  Now  there is a false widespread perception that marijuana is of little harm and the current discussions about access, such as Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau’s calls for legalization, ignore the drug’s impact on vulnerable populations — in particular, teenagers. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/story/2013/08/28/bc-marijuana-teens-mental-health.html

Trudeau calls for legalization of pot but Smoking weed in teens leads to psychiatric disorders

 .

‘It’s more difficult for young people to get their hands on cigarettes’ than weed

http://www.vancouversun.com/news/Trudeau+calls+legalization/8711232/story.html

.
“Regular use of marijuana during adolescence may permanently impair brain function and cognition, and may increase the risk of developing serious psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia in adulthood, a new study has revealed. Researchers from the University of Maryland School of Medicine hope that the study will help to shed light on the potential long-term effects of marijuana use, particularly as lawmakers in Maryland and elsewhere contemplate legalizing the drug. “Over the past 20 years, there has been a major controversy about the long-term effects of marijuana, with some evidence that use in adolescence could be damaging,” study’s senior author Asaf Keller, Ph.D., Professor of Anatomy and Neurobiology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, said. “Previous research has shown that children who started using marijuana before the age of 16 are at greater risk of permanent cognitive deficits, and have a significantly higher incidence of psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia. There likely is a genetic susceptibility, and then you add marijuana during adolescence and it becomes the trigger,” the researcher said. “Adolescence is the critical period during which marijuana use can be damaging,” study’s lead author, Sylvina Mullins Raver, a Ph.D. candidate in the Program in Neuroscience in the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, said.  “We wanted to identify the biological underpinnings and determine whether there is a real, permanent health risk to marijuana use,” she added. The study is published in Neuropsychopharmacology — a publication of the journal Nature.
.
Teens should not do narcotics…No narcotic is OK for teens whether it’s booze, weed, Ecstasy or whatever.  There is a desperate need for education and an even greater need to stop glorifying drug use in pop culture to teens. kids should not smoke it and to think it was ever anything but harmful is naive.  This highlights just how incredibly naive and incompetent Justin Trudeau is.  He’s pandering for the young vote  and he’s willing to risk the health of young people to promote his vacuous theory about legalizing pot. Also, anyone who thinks legalizing pot is some sort of tax bonanza doesn’t have a brain in their head.   Still the most dangerous are drugs, alcohol and tobacco are  .
.
“These drugs are illegal because of the harmful effect they have on users and on society, including violent crime. Our government has no interest in seeing any of these drugs legalized or made more easily available to youth,” the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement.
.
So that’s your stand , is it Prime Minister Stephen  Harper? To be consistent, you would also have to also now reduce, prohibit booze of all descriptions, right? The same people who consume alcohol tend to be the same people who use drugs in reality..  NOW STEPHEN HARPER GET OFF THE BOOZE AND LOOK AFTER THE GOOD WELFARE OF ALL CANADIANS

Canada’s hogs get richer at the Citizens expense

MONTREAL – As Montrealers fumed about fare hikes and repeated métro breakdowns, several of the Société de transport de Montréal’s top managers were enjoying big pay raises last year. The salaries of 12 top STM managers jumped by more than 10 per cent in 2012 compared with 2011, according to a Gazette analysis based on information obtained under access-to-information. The data pertain to the STM’s “extended executive committee” — the agency’s 40 or so highest-paid employees. Salaries range between $120,000 and almost $300,000. In 2012, the average annual pay in this group jumped by 5.6 per cent or $9,200, increasing the average annual salary to $173,000. During the same period, the salaries of Montreal bus and métro drivers increased by two per cent. The average Canadian saw a salary increase of 2.8 per cent in 2012, according to Statistics Canada.  http://www.montrealgazette.com/business/managers+raises/8703628/story.html

.

You know why these big execs all who rather should have been fired they did not care about the  Metro Breakdowns? they likely too their cars to work, and could afford the parking downtown too ehh..  and how many Managers also go useless pay raises elsewhere now too?

.

MONTREAL — For years, Canada was regarded by international experts as one of the most protected and most expensive wireless markets in the world. Canadian consumers weren’t well served by mobile operators and that only began to change a few years ago when new entrants like Videotron and others came in and the market became more competitive.  Now, the federal government wants to continue the push toward greater competition and choice by auctioning off additional spectrum in September to attract a new player. From the perspective of consumers, what could be wrong with that?  http://www.montrealgazette.com/business/Peter+Hadekel+Bell+wireless+arguments+against+Verizon+ring/8709258/story.html

.

Well if you are Bell, Rogers, Telus, etc.. everything is wrong.. as they can never have enough money for a start..  Bell is one of Canada’s most hated Corporations still even because it too often abuses it’s customers still..

.

You did notice that CTV News support Bell, BCE here? oh I forgot Bell owns CTV…

Canada’s monopolistic , self serving, greedy , immoral telecommunications firms

rogers-bell2

 Five Canadian consumer and public interest groups say that Bell and Astral’s new proposed merger is not in the public interest and should be denied. Five Canadian consumer and public interest groups say that Bell and Astral’s new proposed merger is not in the public interest and should be denied. The Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC), who also acts as counsel for the Consumers’ Association of Canada (CAC), Council of Senior Citizens’ Organization of British Columbia (COSCO), National Pensioners and Senior Citizens Federation (NPSCF) and Option consommateurs (OC) filed comments with the CRTC on Friday opposing the proposed acquisition of Astral Media Inc. by Bell Canada, a division of BCE Inc.  “Increased media concentration into the hands of few large vertically integrated telecommunications and media companies will not result in more competition in the market,” said John Lawford, PIAC executive director and general counsel, in a statement. “The loss of Astral in the marketplace does not deliver more competition for consumers. Any increases to Bell’s size will further threaten the ability of independent broadcasters and broadcasting distributors to effectively compete against the highly concentrated, tight oligopoly of large media companies that own both broadcasting and distribution services.”  The groups stated the deal would be bad for consumers and outlined several concerns, including:  http://www.cartt.ca/news/15358/Radio-Television/PIAC-other-consumer-groups-speak-out-against-Bell-Astral-II.html

The Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC), who also acts as counsel for the Consumers’ Association of Canada (CAC), Council of Senior Citizens’ Organization of British Columbia (COSCO), National Pensioners and Senior Citizens Federation (NPSCF) and Option consommateurs (OC) filed comments with the CRTC on Friday opposing the proposed acquisition of Astral Media Inc. by Bell Canada, a division of BCE Inc. The
 consumer advocacy group is asking the CRTC to turn down the Bell-Astral merger for a second time, saying a bigger Bell won’t be better for competition or choice.    The advocacy group says the market already isn’t meeting consumers’ expectations for choice, flexibility and affordability, and approving the deal doesn’t promise to make the situation any better. http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/story/2013/05/07/business-bell-astral-piac.html

.

Cogeco also still opposes revised Bell-Astral deal, saying it’s not good for consumers. “Canadian consumers of television entertainment can only expect rising costs for their viewing options on fixed and mobile platforms, more forced packaging of BCE services and less choice in the selection of services they actually wish to use,” the company said in a news release.

In Canada these days there is a big public outcry about legal tax avoidance by big firms.  It also now seems obvious in retrospect that self regulation also does not work. Effective supervisions, vigilance , controls are  always needed.. I also do still  think it’s time to break up the telecom monopoly in Canada as these mostly  still robber barrons cant be trusted with freedom on the internet or with our phones…

.

Firms  that hire expensive lobbyists and seem to hand out extravagant gifts including golf outings, trips, and even opera tickets to legislators willing to vote their way. These firms   with their false one sided contracts do  still for  freedom from regulation, oversight and pursue  the right to abandon their full responsibility to their customers, even with their immoral price hijacks  rates for any false excuses now too. I have already rightfully, often written Posts about our too often bad telecommunications firms, Internet firms  and Bell, Rogers and Telus are still not about to give up their greedy, immoral ways .  These rather too often price gougers too still do seem falsely to like to find any excuse to stick more charges to the customers even 

http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/tag/telecommunications-firms/

.

One sided contracts are illegal  as any contract is illegal when it is either contrary to a statute or is contrary to public policy.   and all illegal contracts are not enforceable. Thus if you enter into an agreement with another person and you know or have reason to suspect the bargain has some taint of illegality or immorality merely don’t take the risk and exposit it to all.

.

And https://postedat.wordpress.com/2011/06/28/the-10-commandments-are-still-applicable-today-for-all-corporations-and-business-persons-included/

.

These big firms that offer these now essential services too  they are too often useless, pretentious, immoral even, and the words “customer care” here clearly are misleading, false, they rather are paid company employees who look after the customer’s sole interest who quote the firms own policies, rights, demands.. These same mostly self serving firms and department, persons tend to disrespect even the federal and provincial laws, the consumer protection laws included as ai have found out myself many times now too. They all tend to firstly really not care about any of the customer’s personal abuses, hardships, losses, pains, concerns for almost all of these corporations solely care only about the firm’s own profitability, and their sole, bottom line for them is making more of the almighty buck not matter what the costs, even to the customers.  Still sadly almost all OF Canada’s telecommunications firms have a grossly one sided contract terms, definitions that mainly dictates out the rights of the firms only and not the customers rights, and this is grossly both illegal and immoral. Public exposure and prosecution of the liars, bullies, abusers, guilty firms serves everyone’s best interest. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/06/28/bell-canada-to-pay-a-penalty-of-10-million-for-making-misleading-advertising-claims/
.

According to Canada’s Commissioner for Complaints for Telecommunications Services 2011-2012 report, wireless services topped the complaints list. In the rising flood, Telus was the only company among Canada’s big three that had a drop in complaints — 13 per cent. Bell chalked up a hike of 17 per cent and Rogers Communications complaints rose by a whopping 112 per cent. Among cable service providers, Shaw saw complaints climb 335 per cent.”  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/tag/bell-aliant/

.

Those sly subversive foxes at the CRTC TEND STILL TO  SOLELY FOR THEIR OWN INTEREST and all very very far from the pretense that is to the consumer benefit. To promote competition and to prevent market abuse by the largest players there needs to be a mix of effective oversight, and regulation   to allow real competition in the marketplace to take hold with real price decreases now too

.

It is clear the rich do continually get richer by satisfying their immoral  greed by drastically creaming off profits, and not fulfilling their promised responsibility by investment in adequate Customers  services. It seems obvious in all retrospect that self regulation does not work where the main  motive is  monetary  profit.  Also these Profits do leave the country, that’s the problem! They tend rather to go off to tax havens and we don’t see their further benefits. The  past privatisation of any of our basic essential service  needs, such as telecommunication and also Medicare,  in order to provide  profits for a few was and is always  foolish, destructive approach.  We must not tolerate any further citizen suffering caused by selfish profits, and it is time to bring back all of the basic  utilities and essential services back into democratic control, and to renationalise them.  it’s time all of the essential services, water, energy, rail, airlines  and communications were all taken back into public ownership without any recompense to those who hold the shares. They have already taken more than enough in profits and dividends.

.

Rogers, one of the largest telecom companies in the country, has found a way to block our access to affordable mobile services. We’re now looking at a future where just three mobile telecom giants could control a monopoly of the Internet and phones services, holding back progress and innovation. This is totally unacceptable.

http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/tag/rogers/

.

So Now still who really protects the ordinary Canadian citizens from the too often bad, immoral  firms in reality, now  holding the much too many crooked   firms to accountability and next falsely  if there is any justice  it takes years to do so.. and for decades  or  not much good  tends to happen next anyway..  as “We Have a Coin-Operated Government”  Now you would think that our public and civil servants, politicians would by now know how to deal with all of these crooks without me having to tell them and all about it still.

Anyone doubt the oil producers and sellers are greedy hogs?

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

.

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

The problem with the RCMP is not confined to a few bad apples

A Surrey Mountie has been charged with breach of trust for trafficking marijuana, possession of property obtained by crime and more than a dozen weapons offences. Const. David Clarke, 35, an RCMP member for 4 ½ years, was charged late Monday with 15 offences, including breach of trust for trafficking marijuana, possession of stolen marijuana and possession of various identification documents obtained by crime, the RCMP said Tuesday. He is also accused of possessing a number of unlicensed weapons, including a Glock 9-mm handgun, a Colt semiautomatic handgun, a Remington Mohawk semi-automatic rifle, an FN FAL semi-automatic rifle, a Mossberg pump-action shotgun and semi-automatic ammunition cartridges capable of holding more than 10 bullets, an alleged prohibited device.  Clarke is also among a number of officers being sued, along with the B.C. solicitor-general, by Travis Bader, the owner of a Delta firearms training business. Bader says he was treated like a criminal and subjected to two years of “personal abuse” by police, resulting in 10 unfounded charges against him that were stayed by the Crown earlier this year. Clarke is also facing an internal disciplinary hearing stemming from the criminal allegations. http://www.vancouversun.com/news/Mountie+faces+criminal+charges/4012317/story.html

The news that a Surrey Mountie is facing 15 criminal charges couldn’t have come at a worse time for our embattled national police force. Still reeling from the flak resulting from the brutal death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver International Airport, the RCMP is fighting to re-establish its once glorious reputation as a well-governed organization that serves and protects British Columbians. The problem with the RCMP is not confined to a few bad apples. The rot runs deeper. It involves a system-wide lack of accountability to those who pay its bills, namely regular taxpayers.  http://www.theprovince.com/Editorial+RCMP+runs+deeper+than+apples/4012212/story.html

125 birds killed and people next..

 

Latest news.. they did it again
  
Alberta — About 125 birds were euthanized after landing on a Syncrude oilsands tailings pond Mc Murray, Alberta  just three days after the energy giant received the highest environmental fine in Alberta history. About 125 of the 200 birds were euthanized after coming in contact with the bitumen, the company said in the statement.
 
Syncrude Canada now estimates at least 350 birds have died after landing on one of its toxic tailings ponds in northern Alberta.Federal NDP environment critic Linda Duncan, who is also an Alberta MP, said the time has come to shut down the tailings ponds. Mike Hudema of the environmental activist group Greenpeace said the latest incident proves that nothing has changed.
 
Provincial environment officials are investigating. Premier Ed Stelmach said he’s angry about what happened, but noted an investigation is ongoing. “This is sad and disappointing in light of the conclusion of the court proceedings and the judge’s decision last week,” Stelmach told the legislature. “The regulations are there, and obviously we not only enforce them but we took Syncrude to court with the federal government.” Alberta Environment Minister Rob Renner called the incident “discouraging in the extreme.” “I cannot express how disappointed and frustrated I am that this incident occurred,” Renner told reporters at the legislature. “Albertans deserve answers to why this happened again and we will do everything we can to get those answers as quickly as we can.”

Syncrude was sentenced on Friday for failing to take reasonable action to prevent the deaths of more than 1,600 ducks at a toxic tailings pond more than two years ago. The company was fined a $3 million — a penalty some environmental advocates contended was too low.The 2008 tailings pond duck deaths garnered international headlines and served as a rallying call for environmental groups and politicians who are pushing the Alberta government to phase-out toxic waste water ponds.

Canada’s bad police officers

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 PR department in the past had also now lied about the number of drunk RCMP officers.  We can all also too readily know that too many RCMP officers wrongfully do lie, their bad managers included.. sadly they the RCMP and many cops  are also unacceptable hypocrites as they arrest others for drunk driving while many of them do the same thing too when they drive home drunk form the police taverns too .

.

  Furthermore  the punishment for an RCMP who is caught drunk is absurd,, alcoholics tend not to change.. rather they get worse.. all cops who drive or work while they are drunk should be fired from their job period! 

.

  Cops need to be judged with a higher standard cause they are also to be exemplary..

11/30/2010 Former Vancouver Police officer Peter Hodson has pleaded guilty to three of four criminal charges. In a   appearance in Vancouver Provincial court, Hodson entered guilty pleas to charges of trafficking in marijuana, committing a breach of trust in relation to his duties as a police officer, and also using an information data base to conduct an improper arrest.

A Toronto police officer has been charged with manslaughter in connection with the September death of a 26-year-old man. The province’s Special Investigations Unit announced that Constable David Cavanagh of the Toronto Police is facing one charge of manslaughter following an investigation into a September 29 altercation between police and 26-year-old Eric Osawe. According to the SIU, police executed a search warrant at an apartment on Dunbloor Road in Toronto, during which time there was an “interaction” between police and Mr. Osawe. Somehow Mr. Osawe sustained a fatal gunshot wound during the search. Const. Cavanagh will appear at the Ontario Court of Justice on January 6. http://news.nationalpost.com/2010/12/01/toronto-police-officer-charged-with-manslaughter/

RCMP officer pleads guilty to prisoner assault. An Alberta RCMP officer has pleaded guilty to assaulting a prisoner in a detachment cell. Const. Desmond Sandboe admitted to beating a prisoner in a cell at the Lac La Biche detachment on Sept. 13, 2009. A videotape showing Sandboe assaulting the prisoner was shown in court Friday. In a statement, Supt. Joe Loran, acting commanding officer of K Division, said the incident is “appalling.” Loran said Sandboe, a nine-year veteran of the RCMP, has violated the public’s trust and has done a great disservice to other RCMP members. Loran has recommended Sandboe be suspended without pay. Sandboe will be sentenced on Jan. 27. An internal investigation is underway and will be completed after the criminal court process has ended.

VERNON — An RCMP panel has ruled a Vernon Mountie who pleaded guilty earlier this year to a drinking driving offence will forfeit nine days of pay.Constable Jody Turpin refused to provide a breath sample in December 2009.He was fined $1,000 and lost his drivers license for a year.He will not be able to drive until March 2011.Turpin is now back to active duty.   http://www.vancouversun.com/news/Vernon+Mountie+loses+drinking+driving+offence/3851636/story.html#ixzz15lrvVfpr

CBC News Mistrial declared over Mountie’s undisclosed history A judge has declared a mistrial in the case of a man charged with a drinking-and-driving offence. (CBC)A Saskatoon judge has declared a mistrial in a drunk-driving case where the arresting officer had a history that was not disclosed. The case dates back to April when Darren Usselman was charged with having a  blood-alcohol level over .08 while operating his truck. The provincial court case went to trial in June. RCMP officer Sgt. Warren Gherasim, who did the roadside test, was the Crown’s main witness. Usselman was found guilty, but then defence lawyer Ron Piche stumbled across  Gherasim’s background. “It was learned that the sole witness, the main investigating officer, was himself the subject of disciplinary proceedings, professional standards and the like, in connection with an allegation of having consumed alcohol and  driven his vehicle and being in an accident,” Piche said. Gherasim had been sanctioned in 2006 for disgraceful conduct after rolling  his vehicle while off-duty. He admitted at an internal hearing that he had been drinking, but he was never charged. He was suspended without pay for eight days. A Supreme Court ruling in 2009 said that police must tell the Crown about  any misconduct records which may have a bearing on a case. Under disclosure rules, the Crown would then be required to disclose this  information to the defence. Before Usselman could be sentenced, Judge Marilyn Gray declared a mistrial.n her written decision she said, “Here the officer had been disciplined for the very conduct of which Mr. Usselman had been accused.” Piche said it would’ve come up in cross examination, had he known.“It may have influenced the result of the case, obviously, because  credibility is always an issue, not only with civilians but police witnesses as well,” he said.

CBC News A Saskatchewan RCMP officer has been charged with assault causing bodily harm following an incident in Melfort earlier this month.Charged is Const. Anthony Bear, 26, of La Loche. Bear was off-duty at the time of the incident and the victim is a man, the RCMP said.Bear was formally charged Thursday night and has been issued a promise to appear in Melfort provincial court on Dec. 14.No internal code of conduct process has been ordered, the RCMP said.Bear is currently not on active duty, the RCMP said. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/saskatchewan/story/2010/11/19/sk-rcmp-assault-charge-1011.html#ixzz15lqE0cJQ
  .

Now in reality, in principle,  the RCMP and the police do owe a duty to protect all of the people in their custody. If they fail to discharge that duty, if they ignore their duty and harm arises, the RCMP and the police they now would be very likley legally, personally liable in these circumstances.

WHITEHORSE – No criminal charges will be laid against the Mounties involved in the case of a man who died in Whitehorse after lying on the floor of a jail cell for 13 hours vomiting repeatedly. Forty-three-year-old Raymond Silverfox had been arrested in December of 2008 for being drunk in public and after he became unresponsive in the cell, he was moved to hospital, where he later died. A coroner’s inquest ruled he died of natural causes, noting that one factor was an acute infection caused by his own vomit. RCMP Insp. Brendan Fitzpatrick says a thorough investigation by the Mounties and an independent legal assessment by the Public Prosecution Service of Canada have determined no criminal charges should be laid. However, Fitzpatrick says the five officers involved in the incident still face an internal code of conduct review of their actions, and the RCMP’s Public Complaints Commission is still investigating. The B.C. Civil Liberties Association filed a complaint with the commission, charging that an audio recording played at the inquest revealed the officers made fun of Silverfox as he lay on the cell floor and complained about having to clean up after him.

Two Vancouver police officers who faced an allegation of abuse of authority have been cleared by Delta police investigating the incident. So what else is new . this is common in BC, the wrongful norm .The accusation of the police officers immoral actions  was made after the officers went to the wrong entrance of a home when investigating a domestic-violence call around 2:15 a.m. on Jan 21. A woman called 911 to report that her husband was drunk and had assaulted her. When these plainclothes officers arrived at the address provided, they believed Yao Wei Wu, 44, was their suspect and used force to arrest him, resulting in injuries to Wu’s face, legs and back. The  Delta police began to investigate what happened. The sole  Delta police investigator found that, although Wu had seen the officers’ badges and knew they were police, he resisted arrest, prompting the officers to pull him to the ground, where he hit his face. He was also punched in the shoulder a number of times. Of course the Delta police Chief Jim Cessford concluded the officers were acting in good faith and in the course of their duties at the time of the incident; that they had reasonable grounds to believe an assault had occurred; and that Wu was the suspect or an assaultive subject and that the officers used reasonable force to control him. “The police officers believed they were doing the right thing, that they were protecting a woman who was being assaulted,” Cessford said.

Cameron Ward, a lawyer for Wu, called the investigation a “farce.”Ward said his client did nothing wrong and the findings are shocking. “This investigation was a farce,” he said.  “It provides yet another example why police should not be investigating other police. It took Delta investigators more than nine months to investigate a brief incident in which the identities of those involved were immediately known.” Ward said investigators refused to believe Wu about the series of events. “In the end, the investigators chose to disbelieve Mr. Wu’s account of what happened to him, though he had no reason to lie. The investigators accepted the story of the two VPD members at face value, even though it is patently ridiculous and incredible. “The police-complaints process in British Columbia does a disservice to law-abiding citizens like Mr. Wu.”

Wu,  said he “My family and I feel extremely disappointed and angry,” he said.“I was beaten by the police for no reason at the door of my home in the morning of Jan. 21 this year. “The matter was investigated for over nine months and the investigation report says that the police had reason to beat me, that I was beaten by the police because I resisted arrest and failed to co-operate, and that I fell and injured my eye. “This is absolutely a distortion of the facts. The police version is completely false.”

Vancouver police initially said Wu resisted arrest, but Chief Jim Chu subsequently apologized, saying the officers were called to a ­domestic-violence incident but had the wrong address.  http://www.theprovince.com/news/Vancouver+police+cleared+beating/3773655/story.html?cid=megadrop_story

Police Custody in BC a Death Sentence?

BC saw one jail- or police-linked death every three weeks: Report  Vancouver Sun –  Over a 15-year span, 267 people died in police custody in BC, says a new report released Wednesday, which argues the numbers appear to be higher here than in other Canadian jurisdictions.

VANCOUVER (CBC) – A woman involved in a widely reported incident in a Kamloops, B.C., jail cell witnessed by several Mounties and jail employees says she never consented to having sex with another woman. The plaintiff, who cannot be identified because she may be a victim of sexual assault, has filed a lawsuit in B.C. Supreme Court against her alleged female attacker, the City of Kamloops, the RCMP and the federal and provincial governments, as well as the seven men who allegedly watched the encounter on surveillance video.

NOVA.SCOTIA (CBC) – A Halifax Regional Police officer pleaded guilty Tuesday to a charge of breach of trust and was sentenced to house arrest. Jeffrey Buchanan, 30, was handed a one-year conditional sentence, followed by two years of probation. Buchanan resigned from the police force Monday, after five years as an officer. Last December, he was charged with trying to extort about $5,000 from Shawn Banfield, a convicted drug dealer. He was suspended from the force at that time. In a separate case, Buchanan also faces charges of assaulting a woman in Cape Breton last August. That case is due in Sydney provincial court on Dec. 2. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/101116/canada/canada_novascotia_ns_police_officer_resigns

Overall, the G20 in Toronto and the G8 in Huntsville, Ont. — held over three days — are estimated to have cost about $1.3 billion.We’re reeling, we’re staggering to understand how you can spend that amount of money,” said New Democrat MP Pat Martin.Toronto’s police chief Blair said about 60 per cent of his budget went to personnel, noting most had to be paid at a “premium” rate because officers were called in from leave or off days.  The police chief  said about 90 could face disciplinary action for removing their name badges — if they did so to avoid scrutiny.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/101104/business/g20_vandals

 Bad policing is not  uniquely a North American fact for these too often  bad guys with badges can work anywhere in the world.
.
One thing  should be very clear is that I have also said loudly the RCMP tend to be very much cost infective.. these kind of scams have been going on for decades too..  Canada’s  Police do like to milk the gravy train as much as they can..
.
I too have often rightfully said and detailed as to how  that the RCMP Mounties, drive impaired, drunk, abuse others cheat lies steal, are cost ineffective as well!    Follow also not just the alcoholics but also  the money trail, one of the oldest rules of good journalism, it will tell you how effective the ministers, cops, RCMP, civil and public servants, professionals,  now really are too.

A former RCMP murder investigator involved in the high-profile “Surrey Six” slayings has pleaded guilty to attempting to defraud the Mounties with a fake $700 overtime bill.  Steven Perreault, 39, a four-year Mountie and former member of the regional Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, has been fined $500, placed on probation for a year and ordered to perform 50 hours of community service. Perreault was driven to submit the fake claim because of money troubles. His fiancee wanted him to spend more time with her and financial pressure was causing him to work many hours of overtime. The Crown had been asking for a  two-month prison sentence with one year’s probation, arguing that Perreault, as a police officer, should be held to a higher standard.  If Perreault fulfils the conditions of his sentence, he will receive a discharge, leaving him without a criminal record.  http://www.theprovince.com/RCMP+officer+pleads+guilty+fraud+attempt/3754260/story.html

Mon Oct 25, 3:16 PM  VANCOUVER (CBC) – Two Vancouver-area police officers are facing assault charges after a 73-year-old-man was allegedly subdued with a Taser while in police custody in hospital last April.

 VANCOUVER — A Richmond RCMP officer has been fired after a disciplinary board found he shoplifted from a grocery store and then lied about it to his commanding officer.Const. Khomphet (Kam) Khamphoune was caught shoplifting $133 worth of over-the-counter drugs while off-duty on May 29, 2008, by a security guard at an Extra Foods in east Vancouver.He pleaded guilty to theft a year later and was given a conditional discharge.Following his sentencing, Khamphoune was ordered to appear before an RCMP disciplinary board. A copy of that board’s decision, recently obtained by The Vancouver Sun, concludes Khamphoune’s conduct was “disgraceful” and that he can no longer serve as a police office. The board, made up of three senior Mounties, found Khamphoune’s theft alone was a firing offence. But it noted he made the situation even worse when, in trying to justify why he shouldn’t be suspended without pay, he lied to his superior.  The decision to fire Khamphoune was made by the RCMP board in October 2009. However, a written copy of its decision was only recently released in response to a request from The Sun   http://www.vancouversun.com/health/Richmond+Mountie+fired+shoplifting+then+lying+about+superiors/3702610/story.html

BC now also has the bad reputation of  the most custody deaths in Canada, and the worst RCMP force as well.  No wonder the Liberal premier of BC Gordon Campbell was forced to resign unexpectedly. Even the Justice in BC is often ludicrous.. What the justice ministers, government of BC, Canada cannot see how damaging such bad publicity is to BC, Canada  world wide, Citizens tend to have long and unforgiving memories too. Police need the respect of citizens nor rather their fears to do their jobs well.

CALGARY (CBC) – A 15-year veteran of the Calgary Police Service has been charged in connection with a vehicle collision that seriously injured a motorist nearly two years ago.  Sgt. Tony Braile was charged Wednesday with dangerous driving causing bodily harm, the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team announced at a news conference. “It was the manner in which he was operating the motor vehicle at the time of the incident, which was a marked patrol vehicle,”  Purvis said that in the early hours of Dec. 15, 2008, police began pursuing a vehicle believed to have been stolen. Braile is alleged to have trailed the vehicle for nearly an hour, ignoring several police policies and procedures, said Deputy Chief Trevor Daroux. “The incident concluded with a motor vehicle collision that resulted in member of the public being injured. As result, a service investigation was initiated,” Daroux said. A 46-year-old male motorist was seriously injured in the crash at Fifth Street and Fifth Avenue S.W., which didn’t directly involve any police cruisers. Braile was suspended from duty with pay four months ago, Daroux said. There are  questions about why it took so long for the investigation to be completed. Braile will make his first court appearance next month. ASIRT is the provincial agency that investigates serious cases of death or injury that may have resulted from the actions of a police officer.

“To many police officer abuse the power given them by “we the people.”  These are  normal behavior not isolated incidents  by police officers that are nothing more than criminal wearing  badges!  This has to stop! We law-abiding citizens have to get more involved in our communities and push for laws that treat corrupt officers the same way they treat the rest of us! I’m sick and tired to always have to witness police officers dashing in front of you at high-speed, changing lanes without turn signals, only to get out of the daily bumper to bumper traffic that is the norm here in S. Florida. While talking on their cell phones, or parked at any time blocking traffic for no clear reason other than their disregard for the law! They are to carried away with the authority which law-abiding citizen respect, but that they don’t give back to us when they pull us over. Like they do on many occasions just to meet their quota for the month. This is sad to the professional police officers that do the right thing. Yet unfortunately that is what to many time the average citizen encounters when dealing with those that are supposed to ” PROTECT AND SERVE”.  I just hope that we the law-abiding citizen get more involved in our communities and not be afraid to allow our voices to be heard.”

NOVA.SCOTIA (CBC) – Nova Scotia’s justice minister is proposing legislation to create an independent, civilian-led team to investigate alleged wrongdoing involving police. Ross Landry said the Serious Incident Response Team, which will have a civilian director, will also include two civilian provincial investigators and seconded police officers.  “This team will investigate serious matters such as death, serious injury, sexual assaults or public interest concerns which had allegedly resulted serious incidents involving the police,” Landry told a news conference Thursday afternoon.  The creation of the new team will end the practice of police investigating police, though officers may still be seconded to help. Landry said the unit will not be in place until the end of next year,”This unit is simply part of the natural evolution of police accountability,”  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/101028/canada/canada_novascotia_ns_investigative_unit_ros

Cops found guilty for mistreating homeless Toronto Sun -EDMONTON – Two Edmonton police officers have been found guilty under the Police Act for mistreating nine intoxicated homeless people during a 2005 arrest.
.
Edmonton police guilty in ‘sweatbox’ case CBC.ca  The three officers were accused of picking up nine homeless aboriginal people — six men and three women — on Whyte Avenue in May 2005 and locking them in a police van before dumping them about 90 minutes later in a parking lot in the north end.  Sentencing submissions will be made in three weeks.  The incident was brought to light by a story in a newspaper written and sold by Edmonton street people. After a year-long investigation, the RCMP announced in June 2008 that no criminal charges would be laid against the officers involved. In February 2010, Edmonton police decided three officers would face an internal disciplinary hearing.
.

Edmonton cops guilty of dumping homeless people in parking lot Vancouver Sun Constables Lael Souter and Patrick Hannas were convicted at a disciplinary hearing Friday of insubordination and discreditable conduct for driving the nine homeless people around in a hot, stuffy van and then dumping them off in a residential neighbourhood. A third officer, Const. Graham Blackburn, was cleared.

.
Once again thanks to the video the whole truth was exposed and  the footage tarnished the supposed police professionalism, In the brutal police assault on 27-year-old Stacy Bonds,  an assault that was so blatant and so revolting ,  even, police lovers,  all those who reflexively defend all of the police conduct had to pause and consider the negative meaning of what happened at the Ottawa police station on Sept. 26, 2008.  How many other assault police’ charges are merely trumped up for the purpose of concealing the officials wrongdoings?
A democratic, free nation never needs to fear any oppression, perversity  intimidation even  by police or the state.  But Stacy Bonds  a Canadian had been mistreated by Ottawa police in Canada’s  nation’s capital. Stacy Bonds, a young black person  with no criminal history managed to provok  the Ottawa Police into  horrific abusive acts and a false arrest   apparently merely for asking the same police as to  why police had stopped her for questioning. Stacy Bonds  was not  drunk nor behaving inappropriately. The police stopped her and asked her name; she provided it. After checking her name and finding nothing, the police told her she could go on her way. Bonds, in her perfect right, next had asked why she had been stopped in the first place. In response, the bad police officers had arrested her for public intoxication and handcuffed her.  Bonds was taken to Ottawa Police headquarters,where the  the judge noted that she was anything but “violent or aggressive.” In spite on her part   the lack of violence or aggression, Bonds was next assaulted by many police officers by  “two extremely violent knee hits in the back … and has her hair pulled back and her face shoved forward.”Next  Bonds was forced to the ground with a riot shield — though she was “not resisting with hands flailing or feet flailing,” as the judge had said — and subjected to a strip search. The video shows four male officers and one female officer taking part in, or watching, as Bonds was forced to the ground. The Judge Lajoie severely criticized police actions at the station, saying it was “an indignity toward a human being and should be denounced.” Now in the absence of the  video recording, would Bonds have had a fair hearing? Unlikely! Visibly “There is a malaise in the Justice system. How could these five police officers have taken part in the brutalization of Stacy Bonds and then also allowed charges for “assault police” to go ahead? How could a Crown Attorney have failed to stay charges even on seeing the video? Of a more general rightful concern also is , how is it that people whose job it is to see justice done acted so unjustly? and likley more than once”  For the sake of all Canadians another case like that of Stacy Bonds must be insured to never be allowed to happen again by exemplary punishing the bad Ottawa police officers and their bad supervisors, the related justice personnel as well. Clearly also  new enforced professionalism , ethics are now required in the Canadian justice system.
 .
Why did it take so long to deal with a very shocking, troubling, disturbing   incident where a  Video confirms a  2008 strip search of a woman Stacy Bonds by the Ottawa police and it now clearly shakes the citizen’s  confidence rightfully in all authorities.
 .
The 27-year-old woman was left topless in a cell at an Ottawa police station for three hours in soiled pants.  Justice Richard Lajoie last month stayed charges of public intoxication and assault against Stacy Bonds and criticized the conduct of police.The video was released Thursday after. Lajoie said he was “appalled” that Bonds was strip searched in the presence of male officers, calling the incident an “indignity.”.The video, which shows officers at the Elgin Street detachment confining Stacy Bonds and kneeing her in the back before she is wrestled to the floor, where her shirt and bra are cut off. But he said he was disturbed by the event.The Special Investigations Unit is is only now probing the incident..”it’s very important that we get to the bottom of this and that people know exactly what happened and what we need to do to ensure that it doesn’t happen again,””From time to time things happen which shake us, and it’s very important that we get to the bottom of this and that people know exactly what happened and what we need to do to ensure that it doesn’t happen again,” , Premier Dalton McGuinty also said “Every time something untoward like this happens, it shakes our confidence.” Officers need to remember this was someone’s sister, someone’s daughter and _”for all they knew, this might have been somebody’s mother,” added McGuinty. “We’ve got to be very, very careful about how we deal with each other and it’s very important that police act in keeping with what is right and appropriate and lawful,” he said.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/canada
.
Ottawa itself  is in an uproar over the way police treated the now famous Stacy Bonds, and rightly so. The “justice” system is already showing that it places protecting its own above protecting the public. The provincial attorney general is the one who should be doing something about the way the system handled the forceful strip search of the diminutive Ottawa woman, but that would mean admitting the Crown got this wrong. Judge Richard Lajoie’s ruling that the arrest of Bonds was unlawful, her detention violated Charter rights and the case was a “travesty.” Rather than create an independent review of the Crown’s actions, Bentley turned to the subordinate in charge of prosecution and asked him if he thought his people acted properly. What a surprise that he would say yes.  The province’s Special Investigations Unit is investigating, but the Bonds matter actually falls outside the organization’s mandate, which allows it to look at matters involving death, sexual assault or serious injury. There was no serious injury in the Bonds case and it would probably be pushing it to describe what occurred as a sexual assault. The SIU is likely to conclude that there is nothing it can do. The images of four male police officers forcing Bonds to the floor before the officer in charge cut her clothes off might seem outrageous to the public and the judge who tossed out the charge against Bonds, but the Crown has never identified a problem with what took place. The conduct of individual police officers in this case fell well below the standard that we should expect, but the Crown’s failure to perceive it is the most shocking element of this whole sorry situation.   A reasonable person, let alone an experienced Crown attorney, should have expressed concern to Chief White about the officers’ conduct. Nothing was said, even though Bonds’ defence lawyer raised concerns with the actions caught on tape. Two years after the event, the Crown was still arguing in front of a judge that the police officers were, in effect, the victims.  Despite his attorney general’s support for the Crown prosecutors, Premier Dalton McGuinty on Friday made a wishy-washy statement about maybe reviewing the Bonds affair to see if something could be learned from it. That’s not nearly good enough. The point was further amplified by the news Friday that two more cases have been thrown out because of similar police behaviour. In effect, the attorney general is saying it’s OK to arrest a woman on the flimsiest of pretexts, manhandle her, strip search her in disregard of guidelines established by the Supreme Court, toss her in a cell half-naked, then charge her with assaulting police. It’s an outrageous position. The system simply isn’t working. The Crown attorneys are the ones who are supposed to determine whether charges are in the public interest and if there is a reasonable prospect of conviction. They are meant to offer sober second thought and to prevent people being hauled into court simply on the say-so of the police. They haven’t done their job properly. Neither has the attorney general.  At this point, Dalton McGuinty is the only person who can restore some sanity to the system. The last thing the embattled premier needs is another controversy, but it’s time for an independent investigation and maybe even a new attorney general. The people give enormous powers to the police and the Crown with the trust that they will use those powers wisely. The Bonds incident has called that trust into question. Restoring the public’s faith is essential. This isn’t a situation where the people in charge can shrug and drive on. http://www.ottawacitizen.com/travel/Randall+this+system+seems+everyone+blind+justice/3891595/story.html

LAZY, INDIFFERENT, IMMORAL, BAD POLICE, BAD JUSTICE MINSTERS, BAD SOLICITOR GENERALS  is not a new aspect in Ottawa, Ontario and in the rest of Canada. SO NEVER  EXPECT A FULL HONEST INVESTIGATION WHEN CLEARY THE RESULTS WILL SHOW BAD COPS, BAD ATTORNEY GENERALS, BAD MINISTERS WHO HAVE NOT BEING DOING A GOOD JOB. ALL UNACCEPTABLE.
.
Only by a full Public scrutiny and next rightfully  holding them all as well to the highest standards can we change the bad police, bad justice culture that abuses ordinary persons and  leads to cases like Bonds’s or that of Robert Dziekanski.
.
The Police statements in Canada too often now are misdetections,   a public-relations stunt, or just another attempt to not address the real unacceptable issues. Even clearly the institutionalized and systematic racism that marginalizes black Canadian youths and, sadly, forces some of them into a life of crime. Whatever the motivation, there is definitely some ‘politicking’ going on here. In Canada, no persons ought to be above the law, including police officers.Too many Canadians are very disappointed at how members of the  Police act abusively towards the citizens too often as well
.
Many even more disappointed that the officers involved in the action have not been charged. If any other Canadians did to Bonds what those officers did I cannot imagine that the state would not prosecute. And now, if Bonds pursues a civil lawsuit against the Ottawa police, it will likely be Ottawa taxpayers who foot the bill, not the individual officers. Where’s the justice?
.

BELLEVILLE, Ont. – The husband, David McMullan himself a police officer, of Belleville, Ont., police Chief Cory McMullan has been sentenced to 30 days in jail after pleading guilty to assaulting her and breaking her arm and he  was also sentenced today to 18 months probation with conditions, including that he not communicate with his wife without her permission. He must also provide a DNA sample, and has been banned from owning firearms for the rest of his life. David McMullan pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm after his wife was beaten in a Belleville parking lot and again at their house on Aug. 6. 

.

30 days for such a serious abuse is a mockery of Justice now too

.

  
.

While bad doctors, bad cops, bad nurses, bad professionals tend to get of Scott free.. but not the citizens. Mostly Perverse justice ministers still make promises do deal with the issues that lack real substances..What thus is always needed is the real  the dismissal, criminal prosecution, of the guilty persons, cops by an independent citizen based board, review and not rather masturbating bodies.. . So where is it ?

  .

Alcohol is still more dangerous than illegal drugs like heroin and crack cocaine, according to a new study.Heroin, crack cocaine and methamphetamine, or crystal meth, were the most lethal to individuals. When considering their wider social effects, alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine were the deadliest. But overall, alcohol outranked all other substances, followed by heroin and crack cocaine. Experts said alcohol scored so high because it is so widely used and has devastating consequences not only for drinkers but for those around them. When drunk in excess, alcohol damages nearly all organ systems. It is also connected to higher death rates and is involved in a greater percentage of crime than most other drugs, including heroin. All governments should consider more education programs and raising the price of alcohol so it isn’t as widely available.    “What governments decide is illegal is not always based on science,”  for monetary considerations about revenue and taxation, like those garnered from the alcohol and tobacco industries, may influence decisions about which substances to regulate or outlaw. “Drugs that are legal cause at least as much damage, if not more, than drugs that are illicit,”     http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/101031/health/health_eu_med_dangerous_alcohol

.
Furthermore now, in Quebec, despite many polls showing the citizens  overwhelming desire for a public inquiry into allegations of corruption and collusion to fix prices in the construction industry,  a year long police investigation  has yet to finger any big names

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. The related truth is that neither an independent police investigation, a new police commissioner,  a promised provincial or federal investigation, or just more politicians promises too often still   will not bring the much needed justice. All of the governments can prohibit the initial and further employment of any known racists for any jobs, and can  punish them for their racists acts, views. Police managers continue to promise the reforming of bad cops and the bad cops keep killing, abusing  innocent persons. The possible retaining of bad  police officers is always anyway a false myth. What thus is always needed is the real  the dismissal, criminal prosecution, of the guilty cops. So where is it Tax payer’s money abuses, false expense account statements, stealing, tax evasions,   obstruction of justice, cheating, lying,  drunkenness, impaired driving, pornography,  Adultery, VERBAL, PHYSICAL ABUSES, are all ESPECIALLY unacceptable for any civil and public servants. 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. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.  “In the case of police, it is in everyone’s best interest that there is full, effective, independent, transparent and objective oversight. It goes without saying that an absence of effective oversight will inevitably result in the erosion of the community’s confidence in the police.”

 .
Provincial Governments, cops too  do not want to reduce gambling or alcohol consumption for it is a great money maker for them, and too many Canadian politicians and cops do like to booze..
.
The problem with the Police consuming alcohol, is that alcohol not only makes you a mental retard cause it does now kills your brain cell, alcohol also kills your emotions of compassion, and  reasoning ability now as well.. We all also tend to know how many cops and others do often despise others, mock the skid row persons, native alcoholic, drunks and yet hypocritically they do the same thing, even their peers.. consuming a vast amount of alcohol and they cannot see what negative effect it has on their personal life

Chilling facts about cellphones while driving, Insurance rates.

 

Drivers more worried about others texting than drinking Vancouver Sun –  Many Canadian drivers see texters as a bigger threat to their safety than drinkers, according to a recent Canadian Automobile Association survey.

Texting now top driving concern The Province
Toronto Sun – 580 CFRA Radio – Lethbridge 
 

Studies show that approximately one-in-six fatal vehicle collisions have resulted from a driver being distracted while driving. And car crashes are the number one cause of teenager deaths.,,new laws were enacted in BC like other other provinces in Canada on the use of hand-held phones while driving. In BC, it’s a $167 fine, plus three penalty points. There’s a complete ban on cell phone use (including hands-free systems) for novice drivers and they face even stiffer penalties.

A report by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) found that texting while driving not only increased the risk of a crash or a near crash by more than 23 times. Text messaging draws the driver’s eyes away from the road ahead more than any other use of a cell phone. http://www.driving.ca/news/Chilling+facts+from+cellphone+study/3591810/story.html

Just talking on a cell phone can distract a driver, and several studies have demonstrated that, even with a hands-free device. But texting and using so-called smart phones that provide e-mail access and other distracting applications take the problem to a new level.

Free speech firstly does not apply while driving a car..  any person has to be blind not to see  the fact that the people talking on the phone while driving are dangerously distracted, and they can tend to kill, hurt  pedestrians they do not tend to see.. also they can cause serious accidents because they are phone impaired. Note personal safety is always a concern.. and one’s insurance costs now too.. Health costs too… Now there is no such thing as a free automatic right to drive a car especially when you can also now hurt yourself or others.. Do have a car accident while talking on the phone and you will see a serious increase of your insurance premium as well.
 
Taking drugs, Drinking, road rage and driving now   is also dangerous..
 
OTTAWA (CBC) – A year after Ontario barred drivers from using cellphones and other handheld electronics while they’re behind the wheel, little has changed . Ottawa police say they issue an average of 400 fines per month to distracted drivers who often appear impaired swerving, braking erratically, or sometimes even veering into oncoming traffic. Samantha Lyman said sending a text message from behind the wheel may have been her daughter Kay’s last act as she drove from Carleton Place to Arnprior, Ont.” She sent out a text to Facebook at around 12:32 (p.m.), and the accident happened at around 12:33,” Lyman said. Kay, 18, was killed on May 20 of this year when her car slid into the path of an oncoming truck. Recent studies estimate drivers continue to risk their lives. Close to 10 per cent of drivers are holding a mobile phone or texting while behind the wheel, one study found. Police in Ottawa are cracking down, but the problem persists. The CBC’s Jeff Semple hit the road and spoke with those affected most by the dangers of distracted driving. Tune in to his reports Wednesday on CBC Radio, TV and online.

Drunk drivers who hurt others.. There’s just no cure for drunks.  I bet he’s a repeat offender.  There is no need to send it to court. Merely Ban the idiot from driving for the next 100 years and throw him in jail for five years. If proven to be impaired, the driver will be without insurance. they also will sue him to recover their losses, garnish his wages and put a lien on his house and anything else he owns. But he or she will continue likley to drink and drive.

Kind of foolish encouraging people to become alcoholics at taxpayers expense, for while a few corporations will get richer in the process, the Canadian government will not, cause the costs due to job dismissals and related tax losses, Medicare cost increase, car accidents, policing, domestic violence, all associated with alcoholism is extremely costly.. No taxpayer’s money should ever  be used to buy alcohol  at any federal, provincial, municipal government functions nor enourage any alcoholism too. Really!
 

Ever notice that if you watch the movies or the TV they give you a really lying, distorted image of alcohol drinkers where they are all smiling, happy faces too.. unlike the real taverns, bar scenes ehh.. where people cause trouble, are depressed, etc.,,

Prime Minister Stephen Harper today recognized the contributions made by Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean during her tenure as Canada’s 27th Governor General.  The Government of Canada will be providing $3 million in support of the Michaëlle Jean Foundation, a non-profit organization that will promote citizen engagement through the arts and creativity, with a special emphasis on youth from underprivileged, rural and northern communities in Canada.  The Government will also match funds raised privately by the foundation, to a maximum of $7 million over a ten-year period. Since the 1960s, the Government of Canada has honoured former Governors General by helping them contribute to Canadian society by supporting the initiatives they pursued while in office. http://www.pm.gc.ca/eng/media.asp?category=1&pageId=26&id=3681
 
When I see in comparison TO THESE MERE 3 MILLION DOLLARS NOW  as to how much the government of Canada now still spends on entertainment booze, alcohol I can see where their wrong priorities now still is.. and cops falsely are still mainly going after the car speeders, the money making generating revenues and not the drunk drivers who cause the majority of the accidents too.. EVEN COPS, RCMP DRIVE WHEN DRUNK THESE DAYS IN CANADA
  has co-authored a new study in the B.C. Medical Journal  which shows that because of legal challenges police face when trying to collect evidence like blood alcohol readings from injured, impaired drivers, only seven to 11 per cent of them are eventually convicted of impaired driving.
 
 Even worse, a review of B.C. accidents from 1999 to 2003 showed that nearly a third of such impaired drivers faced more drunk driving charges, even after they killed or maimed others in 84 per cent of the initial accidents.“Follow-up over a 4.5 year period indicated that 30.7 per cent of the injured impaired drivers were engaged in subsequent impaired driving, notwithstanding that they injured or killed someone in more than 84 per cent of initial crashes. These studies suggest that our emergency departments may have become safe havens for the worst drinking drivers, those drivers who are involved in fatal or personal injury crashes. They recover, get out of hospital, drive drunk again, and escape prosecution and conviction. It doesn’t take them long which is exactly why the conviction rate has to go up. There needs to be more intervention to get them off the roads,” Purssell said. http://communities.canada.com/vancouversun/blogs/medicinematters/archive/2010/11/30/Rights_2C00_-laws-tilted-to-favour-drunk_2C00_-injured-drivers-who-kill-or-maim-others_2C00_-ER-doctor_2C00_-lawyers-say.aspx

“Alcohol and speed were factors in a single-vehicle crash west of Red Deer on Saturday night that killed the driver, police say.A 43-year-old woman from Ashmont, Alta., was pronounced dead at the scene. The sole passenger, a 51-year-old man Eckville man, was taken to the Red Deer Hospital”
 
About those self centered, clearly self oriented, selfish, immoral weasels who with the help of ostriches, snakes do  try to falsely continue to justify their immoral acts of drunkenness.. even while they themselves escalated  their hurts upon others and have also increased the  taxpayers costs, I do not care to listen to their lies, false justifications distortions over the reality. The reality is that innocent people do suffer too often as a result of the alcoholic drunks and they the drunks wrongfully continue to bring a vast amount of pain, suffering to others. 
 
Alcoholism is not just too often a supposed sickness but it is violence, and murder.. Now about the police rightfully going after drunks all year, not just mainly the car speeders.. Oh I forgot the police are too often drunks themselves, and drink and drive too.. Alcoholics do not need a reason or a season to get drunk,  on the job or off the job, including many civil and public servants now too, for they do it all year. They also still  need to be jailed, fired and not rather neglected. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/10/25/canadas-bad-police-officers/
 
DRUNK DRIVING KILLS AT LEAST 5 TIMES MORE PERSONS OVER SPEEDING http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/04/24/research-on-real-world-behavior-crash-factors/
 
For the record alcoholism is also not the only vice the drunks  tend to indulge in vastly as well.
 
OTTAWA – Courts, police forces and jails could be overwhelmed if the federal government ever lowered the criminal drunk-driving threshold, says an internal study by the federal Justice Department. Cutting blood-alcohol limits for Canadian drivers to the level established in many other countries would likely double the number of cases in a justice system already struggling with the current caseload, it warns”. the study neglects the financial and negative personal impacts on others the drunks make.
 
A spokesman for Mothers Against Drunk Driving was dismissive of the claim Canada’s justice system cannot absorb a surge of new charges under a tougher threshold, noting that many other countries are able to enforce higher standards.

 

The Conservative government has taken other tough measures against impaired driving through its Tackling Violent Crime Act, which closed some legal loopholes, increased maximum sentences and imposed mandatory penalties. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/101024/national/drunk_driving_study

Alcohol is more dangerous than illegal drugs like heroin and crack cocaine, according to a new study.Heroin, crack cocaine and methamphetamine, or crystal meth, were the most lethal to individuals. When considering their wider social effects, alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine were the deadliest. But overall, alcohol outranked all other substances, followed by heroin and crack cocaine. Experts said alcohol scored so high because it is so widely used and has devastating consequences not only for drinkers but for those around them. When drunk in excess, alcohol damages nearly all organ systems. It is also connected to higher death rates and is involved in a greater percentage of crime than most other drugs, including heroin. All governments should consider more education programs and raising the price of alcohol so it isn’t as widely available.    “What governments decide is illegal is not always based on science,”  for monetary considerations about revenue and taxation, like those garnered from the alcohol and tobacco industries, may influence decisions about which substances to regulate or outlaw. “Drugs that are legal cause at least as much damage, if not more, than drugs that are illicit,”    http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/101031/health/health_eu_med_dangerous_alcohol
  
Provincial Governments, cops too  do not want to reduce gambling or alcohol consumption for it is a great money maker for them, and too many Canadian politicians and cops do like to booze..
The problem with the Police or Politicians consuming alcohol, is that alcohol not only makes you a mental retard cause it does now kills your brain cell, alcohol also kills your emotions of compassion, and  reasoning ability now as well.. We all also tend to know how many cops and others do often despise others, mock the skid row persons, native alcoholic, drunks and yet hypocritically they do the same thing, even their peers.. consuming a vast amount of alcohol and they cannot see what negative effect it has on their personal life. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/02/04/our-politicians-file-excessive-and-unreasonable-claims-canada-wide-now-too/
 
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. The related truth is that neither an independent police investigation, a new police commissioner,  a promised provincial or federal investigation, or just more politicians promises too often still   will not bring the much needed justice. All of the governments can prohibit the initial and further employment of any known racists for any jobs, and can  punish them for their racists acts, views. Police managers continue to promise the reforming of bad cops and the bad cops keep killing, abusing  innocent persons. The possible retaining of bad  police officers is always anyway a false myth. What thus is always needed is the real  the dismissal, criminal prosecution, of the guilty cops. So where is it
Tax payer’s money abuses, false expense account statements, stealing, tax evasions,   obstruction of justice, cheating, lying,  drunkenness, impaired driving, pornography,  Adultery, VERBAL, PHYSICAL ABUSES, are all ESPECIALLY unacceptable for any civil and public servants. 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.
Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.  “In the case of police, it is in everyone’s best interest that there is full, effective, independent, transparent and objective oversight. It goes without saying that an absence of effective oversight will inevitably result in the erosion of the community’s confidence in the police.”
OTTAWA—High-flying bureaucrats expecting Canadians to pick up their bar tabs at conferences and social get-togethers are being reined in as part of federal government’s effort to trim Canada’s whopping $45.5 billion deficit. Treasury Board president Stockwell Day said Wednesday that for the first time these kinds of expenses will be made public along with new guidelines about where and when public servants can tipple on the taxpayer’s dime, among other things. “We want to control expenses related to hospitality, conferencing and travelling,” Day told reporters, noting it was Auditor General Sheila Fraser who shone a light on hospitality expenses. “Travel is necessary, hospitality costs are necessary and conferences are necessary, but we want to make sure only the ones that are truly necessary are moving forward,” said Day Now, the purchase of alcohol on the public purse is limited to situations such as those involving diplomats or “appropriate business with outside stakeholders.” The new guidelines will not affect MPs, who can still stick taxpayers with their booze bills under the guise of hospitality.Day said Fraser found examples of a reception that cost $31,500 or more than $100 a head; dinners that cost more than $1,500 for only 10 to 12 people and a farewell for a public servant that cost $7,200 The new cost cutting measures include: Ensuring that department spending on travel, hospitality and conferences is reported each year; Ensuring that annual budgets in these area are approved by deputy ministers; and Restricting all spending on alcohol to situations necessary for protocol, diplomacy or appropriate business with outside stakeholders. Day acknowledged that up until now there was no one in the various government departments to authorize hospitality, conferences or travel “and now there will be specific accountabilities assigned to individuals.”These same guidelines will apply to ministers’ offices as well, he said.   http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/article/896145–no-more-booze-for-bureaucrats-ottawa 

 

Politicains make decisions that affect millions of people, therefore I think it should be zero tolerance for politicians and alcohol. Everyday they do far more damage than some guy in his car or on his motorcycle at .05. Oh, and mandatory helmets on the golf course, you never know when you might take one to the melon and cost the healthcare system some money. If it just saves one life!

Booze rules are needed for the alcoholics called MPs and Senators. This group of officials spends SO MUCH money on alcohol, and this needs to stop. It seems that this line of work attracts a very big number of alcoholics who figure out that they can sustain their addiction with out blowing their salaries on it. Sound like a very good deal except for the suckers called tax payers.  When are we going to stand up and stop the abuse of our money? Why do we continue to allow the government to misuse our hard earned money; after all none of us would get away with this type of behavior in our private lives? Also none of us who work for the private sector would get a way with squandering the company’s money the way the government treasury does.  How can I explain to my teenage son and/or daughter to not squander her/his money on none sense when our government is doing exactly that during these tough economic times. I would like to know how much money does the government, House of Commons and the Senate spends on alcohol, lunches, dinner and receptions? I would like to recommend that for every dollar spent on the above mentioned activities that we the tax payers get a dollar returned to us, and at the end we’ll see if there is a deficit from this exchange.  The government has the audacity to collect taxes from poor people who earn less than $10,000/yr. while they spend all that tax money the collected from the poor person on alcohol, lunches, dinners and receptions and god knows what other luxuries and or immoral activities are they spending it on.
A local taxi driver complained to me how significantly he has seen his taxes go up even on his home in the last 30 years.. he attributes it all to government wastes, thefts, ineffective and wasteful civil and public servants living high on the hog.. it had to stop now a long time ago as well..
 
Secondly besides the negative effect of alcohol in the private sector they do not booze it up as much as our civil and public servants, politicians  have and do for sure.

October 17, 2010

there is no new thing under the sun

 
 
 I am not one who lacks words in writing, but yet I am not one to waste words in futility as well.. Now for decades too I do write many letters openly Canada wide to our elected officials, and to say that I get effective replies from them would be mostly a lie… I am lucky if 2 persons of 1000 MPs, MLA , Aldermen would reply to them. They only take a superficial one at best interest in us at election times. But I have to say I have been surprised that the province that responds the least is Quebec and they re as bad as the Federal Conservatives too.. Both are too soft on white collared crimes, criminals. The   Lieberal Quebec officials, like bad cops, bad RCMP, Ostriches in denial are very   sensitive to any criticism, and really cannot handle it at all.  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/03/16/quebec-the-second-largest-province-in-canada-holds-75-seats-and-cannot-be-ignored/
.
Promised past Accountability and Transparency were mere election gimmicks now too.. A bad Liberal is just as bad as a bad Conservative always as well. So who is being fooled by all this? The liars do only mostly fool  themselves as to who and what they really are.
.
The Mounties also always gripe about being underpaid.. when the real problem is that they had hired too much crap to start off with. When you hire bad persons you next get bad cops with bad results ..  RCMP officer threatened critic. In Canada along with the bad pastors, the crooks, bad politicians, the cops are a typical group who do not tolerate negative free speech about their own bad acts, for they tend to be ostriches in denials, who falsely refuse to admit, to see their own bad points, and they wrongfully, clearly do let you all falsely to believe they are some kind of gods, perfectionist who themselves cannot be challenged, questioned. How absurd. These people in denial are the ones who often need professional help for their sickness. The RCMP along with other major police forces tend to be known for censorship of free speech, obstruction of justice, false intimidations of their critics. Now in reality too often the Police are too often lazy, no good cops… but the feds, politicians, civil and public servants included, are not any better it seems. In Canada in my whole life I never got the too often bad police to do one proper thing, to do one proper police complaint review now too. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/09/04/rcmp-officer-threatened-critic/
.
When you criticize openly the  bad persons , especially bad cops, doctors, nurses, professionals you tend to get a false denial, remark in response  like you are crazy, you need professional help. They still really  cannot face the reality there are things in their life that need serious, drastic changes. These people in denial are the ones who often need professional help for their own short comings, sickness. Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about their own unacceptable acts.  Corruptions occurs now Not just in Churches, amongst the police, politicians, civil and public servants.
.
HEY WE ALL TEND TO KNOW THAT EVEN THE RCMP CANNOT CATCH THE BAD GUYS ANYMORE TOO. IT IS A KNOWN FACT THE POLICE IN CANADA TOO OFTEN  TEND TO COVER-UP FOR THE CRIMINAL IMMORAL WHITE COLLARED CRANES OF PROFESSIONALS LEST THEY NEXT ALSO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. When a  professional cannot see what they are doing now is simply  so wrong they themselves do now need real professional help too.
.
The People who lie often, the professionals and the politicans, civil and public servants  now included, they tend to have severe personal, mental disorders next cause one tends to eventually believe next ones lies as being the truth, and they can no no longer differentiate their own lies from reality, the truth.
.
 
Narcissistic, selfish, self centered  Mental Disorders too evident now even in many of the so called medical Professionals leads  these persons to  dwell in self-absorption, fantasy, illusion, where she or he has exaggerated claims to talents, importance, or specialness,  manifesting evidence  of a need for constant admiration from others,  a lack of empathy for all others, persistent in this too,  have rigid personality traits and coping styles, clearly  inflexible, do show a  hypersensitivity to any criticism , defeat or  negative realities thus they rather  are pathological in  denial by the their falsity, contrived replacement of the truths which they still must  face eventually .   These SEVERE PERSONALITY disorders are generally personally ongoing too leading to more impaired social and/or occupational functioning and can make it difficult to pinpoint a clear dividing line between their  pathology and their so called normality. Most of these people with their personality disorders may not perceive that there is anything wrong with their behavior and thus they are not motivated to change it. It is important to note that these  personality disorders are considered to have their onset in late adolescence or early adulthood and they alone are responsible for it too. 
.
Denial, it is very very common when many an individual, even amongst so called professionals, even in pastors now included,  are openly confronted with their own wrong doings, that they resort to a false denial. When confronted with the truth the denier they  often respond with a similar personal counter attack remark as   ”you are crazy”.  “I reject your reality… and substitute my own.”  Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about themselves still though.  Sadly it is a negative natural human tendency to devolve into denial.”    It’s not just a moral compass that’s lacking, but the ability to honest, or to stand apart. Denial often comes out of a false pride, a fear of being openly exposed as being wrong. Denial is a false convenient escape, excuse for inaction  for persons now  facing a situation that requires a decision or action that conflicts with his or her established past policy. Denial too often can be  further disastrous upon themselves and others.. for denial is not seeing data at all or seeing it and coming to an erroneous conclusion within oneself. One’s false denial is often based on a false assumption  of one’s past great success and often precedes their own severe personal failure next due to a personal disconnect with real life. Illustrated fully by the story of the Emperor with new clothes.
.
Denial (also called abnegation) is a defense mechanism postulated by Sigmund Freud, in which a person is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it instead, insisting that it is not true despite what may be overwhelming evidence, a mechanism of the immature mind that conflicts with the ability to learn from and cope with reality. The subject may now deny the reality of the unpleasant fact altogether (simple denial), admit the fact but deny its seriousness (minimization) or admit both the fact and seriousness but deny responsibility (transference). The concept of denial is particularly related to the denial of one’s addiction to alcohol for example, or to one slandering others, abusing them stealing, lying.. their denial or their  minimization of their own wrong doings is the  essential part of what enables them next to to continue his or her behavior in the face of evidence that, to an outsider, that is   overwhelming.   “The American Heart Association cites denial as a principal reason that treatment of a heart attack is delayed. Because the symptoms are so varied, and often have other potential explanations, the opportunity exists for the patient to deny the emergency, often with fatal consequences. It is common for patients to delay mammograms or other tests because of a fear of cancer, even though this is clearly maladaptive.”
.

Types of Denial include now the Denial of fact: This form of denial is where someone avoids a fact by lying. This lying can take the form of an outright falsehood (commission), leaving out certain details in order to tailor a story (omission), This form of denial involves avoiding personal responsibility by blaming, minimizing or justifying.   Denial of responsibility:  Denial of impact: avoiding thinking about or understanding the harms their behavior have caused to themselves or others.  Denial of awareness: they do not admit any previous awareness of the negative reality.  Denial of cycle: Denial of cycle is where a person avoids looking at their decisions leading up to an event or does not consider their pattern of decision making and how harmful behavior is repeated. Denial of denial:  This latter form of denial typically overlaps with all of the other forms of denial, but involves more self-delusion. People in a false denial are really nuts, delusional..

.

There are tools and practices that we can implement to overcome the psychological trap of denial. 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, doctors, nurse,  civil and public servants, cops, teachers, pastors, priests, ministers, politicians included  are always to be exemplary in behavior,  and in 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.

False Denial by civil and public servants is common but I have never seem so many lying, mental people in one place like I have amongst the cops or even the medical workers that I have dealt with this year in in Hospitals, convalescent, old age homes who really do delude
themselves too often about their self importance and the positive role they are functioning in.

Fire all of the useless public and civil servants managers first.. here are many examples as to how bad they realy are now too
.
Anyone familiar with the Canadian Political systems tends to  know that for many decades now too the   Canadian Political systems   are still spinning  their wheels and going nowhere. Political parties do change but the end results tend to be the same for not much is being done basically for the good welfare of all of the citizens still. The too often pretentious and ineffective civil and public servants tend to lie and  look mainly after their own interests, plus  we still have too often bad cops and bad RCMP in Canada, and we still have the  bad, pretentious Medicare systems. We still have greedy corporate monopolies price gouging the consumers too. Bad Christian Denominations, Bad Christian and Missionary Alliance, Bad Pastors, bad deacons, bad elders, bad churches,  Selling the gospel for money too , bad Bell, BCE,  bad and  crooked cops, bad RCMP, corruptions, Governmental abuses and wastes, Bad and pretentious Justice Ministers, Pretentious Consumer Affairs, a bad medicare system  are still the topics the most read on my sites..

OTTAWA —  The federal Integrity commissioner herself now resigns as federal Attorney General Shiela Fraser was probing the office amid operational complaints begins a probe on her,  Christiane Ouimet was the whistleblower commissioner, whose job is to protect federal public employees who report wrongdoing in the government and is the same the federal whistleblower watchdog who hasn’t produced any recommendations or found any wrongdoing in her three years on the job, now has announced Wednesday she is “retiring” four years before her term is set to expire. Ouimet’s retirement came into effect Monday.  She supposedly now has decided that after 28 years in the federal public service, it was time for her to retire.” The office of the Integrity Commissioner was part of the Conservative’s Federal Accountability Action Plan. Too many persons have been critical of Ouimet’s job, for the current system to protect government whistleblowers has been a disaster — during three years of operation with millions spent, the Commissioner’s office has not uncovered a single case of wrongdoing in the entire federal public service, and has not even protected not a single whistleblower,”  NDP MP Pat Martin said  “Clearly we weren’t getting value for money if she wasn’t acting on the information that was being brought to her attention.” The public sector integrity commissioner’s office was established in 2007 as part of the Whistleblower Act of 2007 has spent millions of dollars now too.

MONTREAL   Relatives of Canadians who died as a result of altercations with police will demonstrate in Montreal  calling for changes in the way police forces investigate allegations of police brutality. The group includes relatives of people shot and killed by police, people who died after police used stun guns, and people who were run over by police. Police investigation methods in Quebec have come under fire in recent years after high-profile cases such as the Villanueva shooting in 2008. Ministerial policy dictates an outside police force be brought in as soon as a police officer discharges a weapon and whenever someone is killed or injured in an incident involving police which has not always been honest or fair . The family members involved in this weekend’s demonstrations are demanding that police investigations be conducted by a third party not connected to any police force. “I witnessed first hand cover-ups, lies, misinformation [and] conveniently forgotten reports,” said Matson. “It’s not recognizing the real story that’s happening there. It’s just recognizing what they want to see, and that’s protecting themselves.”Julie Matson, http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/101021/canada/canada_montreal_quebec_families_want_changes_police_investigations

The Canadian Press  VANCOUVER – The RCMP needs an attitude adjustment and the shift will need to be part of any new deal British Columbia and other provinces negotiate for future policing services, says B.C.’s attorney general.     Mike de Jong told reporters after a justice ministers meeting last week that he and his colleagues in other provinces are looking for a direct line of accountability between the RCMP and the provincial jurisdiction.  A “cultural shift” needs to accompany the structural shift that they are negotiating, the minister said. “The RCMP needs to be accountable both provincially and at the community level.” De Jong said the federal government has been receptive to the idea that RCMP officers account both to the province and local communities for their actions   http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/101017/national/rcmp_contract

The Canadian Press Date: Saturday Oct. 16, 2010 7:47 AM ET OTTAWA — The Mounties have decided not to lay charges in a case in which sensitive government emails were deliberately destroyed, ending a two-year probe regarded as an overdue test of Canada’s information law.   The RCMP’s review of the case focused on Section 67.1 of the Access to Information Act, which provides penalties of up to two years in jail and a $10,000 fine for destroying government records or even counselling someone to conceal them from a requester.  The section was added to the Act in 1999, after several high-profile cases in which military documents about Somalia, as well as Red Cross records, were shredded to prevent embarrassing public disclosures.  But in the 11 years since, no one has ever been convicted or even charged under the section — and the RCMP probe was being watched closely to see whether the law was effective.  “We conducted an investigation and we concluded that no criminal charges will be laid,” Sgt. Stephane Turgeon of the RCMP’s “A” Division said in a brief statement. “That concludes the matter at our end.”  Turgeon declined to provide further details on the investigation or the decision.  “When I see politicians and public servants getting away with this kind of deception, it makes me very angry,” she said.  “This isn’t the first RCMP investigation to have fizzled and until the people demand better from their elected officials they will get no better.”  http://www.ctv.ca/CTVNews/TopStories/20101016/rcmp-email-investigation-101016/
 
 
Janet Jones doesn’t think her 88-year-old father-in-law should have to pay a $29.40 daily fee for room and board at the BC  Langley Memorial Hospital while he recuperates from a broken hip. “Someone that pays taxes all his life and is supposed to have universal health shouldn’t be receiving a bill for health care,” said Jones. “It’s a bit ridiculous. I mean, isn’t there a Canada Health Act?”  http://www.theprovince.com/health/Hospital+illegal+critics+charge/3709665/story.html

WINNIPEG — Police said they’ll be launching a criminal probe into the death of Brian Sinclair, a homeless man who waited for 34 hours in a hospital’s emergency room in September 2008. Police made the announcement today, nearly six months after Toronto-based Clayton Ruby, a lawyer for the family, called on officers to investigate.  They said they willl now be assembling a team of investigators to look into the death as a potentially criminal matter. The 45-year-old man’s death made national headlines and raised concerns about the quality of ER care and the treatment of aboriginal people in the health-care system. Sinclair’s family has filed a civil lawsuit against the regional health authority, the Manitoba government and medical staff who were working when he died. Family spokesman Robert Sinclair, Brian’s cousin, said today he found out from the media police were launching an criminal investigation. “I’m glad they finally made a decision,” he said. “Everything’s been at a standstill.” Lawyer Vilko Zbogar said a police probe will likely delay the start of a provincial inquest into Sinclair’s death at the HSC. A sentiment shared by Health Minister Theresa Oswald who also said that the criminal investigation could delay the start of a provincial inquest into Sinclair’s death. “It could delay it. I hope that’s not true. But I have heard that that might be the case,” she told reporters at the Legislative Building today. Oswald said she hopes the police probe won’t substantially delay matters because she welcomes the inquest and its potential for leading to improved patient care. Asked for her reaction to hospital workers being the target of a police probe, the health minister said: “If this investigation that the Winnipeg Police Service believes it needs to pursue is going to provide us with more information, I welcome that, to be frank, I’ve never said otherwise.” In March the Winnipeg Police Service said they would do a review into the matter after Ruby spoke out on the family’s behalf. Police said the decision to launch the investigation came after getting documents and materials related to Sinclair’s death.  “We have determined that an investigation into this incident is warranted,” said Const. Natalie Aitken, Winnipeg Police Service spokeswoman. “That being said, that should not be any reason to construe that any manner of wrong-doing has been determined as of this time.” A statement from police earlier this year said they’d never received “any suggestion” there was evidence of criminal wrongdoing concerning Sinclair’s death. Police said investigators from the medical examiner’s office had not asked them to look into the incident, and the only contact police had with medical examiner investigators was to do with alerting Sinclair’s relatives to his death. Police did not say which specific charges they were looking at laying, if any. http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/breakingnews/Police-to-investigate-Sinclair-ER-death-105035019.html

THIS IS LIKLEY ONE OF THOSE BAD  FARCES   in Canada where politicians get partiality and the rest get discriminated upon too. Sad day when even a federal justice minister loses the  respect of many..

Now read about the much too many injustices allowed in Canada these days too under the Conservatives and Liberals..

A Quebec hospital is investigating the death of a diabetic man who died while sitting in a wheelchair in the waiting room at a Montreal emergency department.  André Desjardins, 64, went to the Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital on Sept. 30 by ambulance after complaining of severe pain. He already suffered from high blood pressure and was a heavy smoker, in addition to having diabetes. A doctor at the hospital saw him but Desjardins was sent back to the waiting area. As his pain worsened, family members pleaded with staff to let him lie down on a stretcher, but none was provided. Instead, hospital staff put him in a wheelchair, where he spent an estimated seven hours waiting for futher care before he died, said his relatives. Making anyone in a medical crisis wait for care in an ER makes no sense at all, and reflects Quebec’s chronic problem with emergency care, said patients’ rights advocate Paul Brunet. “We had the ultimate failure of the system with the death of this guy. We shouldn’t have to wait in an emergency ward. We should stop accepting that,” said Brunet, who heads Quebec’s Conseil de protection des malades. “Evidently that patient was gravely ill, and certainly should have been taken care of more seriously than he was.” The hospital has apologized to Desjardins’ family but won’t comment further until its internal investigation is complete. Quebec Health Minister Yves Bolduc said Tuesday that Desjardins’ death is unacceptable and regrettable, but denied that it had anything to do with the hospital operating at over-capacity. It’s not the first time a patient has died waiting in the Maisonneuve-Rosemont ER. Last February, an elderly woman suffering from Alzheimer’s disease died after waiting two hours on a stretcher in the Maisonneuve-Rosemont ER. Later reports found the hospital’s emergency ward was operating at 200 per cent capacity that day. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/101019/canada/canada_montreal_quebec_man_dies_in_hospital_emergency_room

The Quebec governments, politicians, police, administrators certainly are still too soft on dealing with crimes, inadequacies so is the federal government.  Imagine this thousands of people do now die in Hospitals per year because of the Hospitals inadequacies  and it still basically is allowed to happen.. even cause not too much is being done about it still too. People even die waiting in the emergency wards for years now too.   Arrest the Premier, the  Health Minister, Hospital director, the Quebec Ombudsman,  and the main Doctor at the Hospital, emergency room for criminal neglect of a sick person, after all they know about the problems for a long time  and they did nothing good about it. Just the tip of a big iceberg too.  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/03/16/quebec-the-second-largest-province-in-canada-holds-75-seats-and-cannot-be-ignored/

OTTAWA – A consultant hired by the federal government to smooth out disagreements in a controversial Parliament Hill renovation donated money to attend a Conservative fundraiser, The Canadian Press has learned. Howie Clavier says he did nothing wrong by paying $500 to attend the fundraiser put on by a contractor because he saw it as a good opportunity to network with people involved in the West Block project. But some are questioning whether an impartial mediator and facilitator should be mixing government business with party politics

B.C. Attorney-General Mike de Jong has told reporters the government decided to cover the legal costs of approximately $6-million for David Basi and Bobby Virk after realizing that the two former political aides could not pay the bills. The government was told there’s nothing left to pursue. “Therefore the government won’t pursue what isn’t there,” Mr. de Jong said.  At first glance, it appears Mr. Basi is a man of property with significant resources to contribute to at least a sizeable portion of the cost of his legal fees. Mr. Basi, his wife Inderjit and mother Sukhbir had four houses in Victoria in 2003 that were valued at $1.2-million, according to media reports after the raid on the legislature. A year later, in March, 2004, the media reported that Mr. Basi bought five acres near Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island. Five months after that, Mr. Basi and his wife bought a $279,000 house in Esquimalt, the media reported.It’s not clear what happened to Mr. Basi’s real estate holdings over the years while the court case dragged onPublic records indicate Mr. Basi continues to have some real estate holdings. A search at the Land Titles Office shows Mr. Basi and his wife Inderjit currently own a house in Victoria assessed at $857,000. The B.C. assessment branch also shows Mr. Basi and his wife as the owner of a second house in Victoria, this one assessed at $518,000. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/british-columbia/real-estate-holdings-suggest-basi-has-assets/article1764610/

 Basi, Virk should have paid own bills. It is incongruous to me that Dave Basi and Bob Virk can admit to crimes and stiff us with a $6-million bill for their legal defence.

TORONTO — Ontario’s health bureaucracy is facing yet another scandal in the wake of more revelations of spending and procurement abuses. In a special report released Wednesday morning, Auditor-General Jim McCarter outlines numerous problems at hospitals and local health integration networks (LHINs), regional funding agencies created by the Liberal government. McCarter points to the questionable hiring of pricey consultants, many of which were sole-sourced and often not required to justify the work they did. The report details a litany of questionable consulting gigs at hospitals, including one, worth $700,000, that was so vague it didn’t even list a detailed description of services needed. Another hospital completely failed to account for a $170,000 consultant contract, and was unable to produce the initial request for proposal, the names and number of firms invited to bid, the bidders’ proposals or any evaluation criteria used to reward the contract. The same firm was retained for another, $430,000 contract. Another hospital paid $8.3 million to one consulting firm for IT services over the past three fiscal years, including $180,000 the firm charges for each consultant it provides. The auditor’s report also details questionable expense claims by hospital consultants. They include one temporary executive who, despite his $275,000 annual salary, also billed the hospital nearly $150,000 for other consultants and administrative support, $14,000 for salary bonuses, foreign exchange fees and a Christmas luncheon, and numerous expensive hotels (including one, in Chicago, where he paid $500 for hotel phone charges) and lavish meals around the world. McCarter also questioned the use of lobbyists by half the 16 hospitals he audited.   “We questioned the appropriateness of using government funds to pay lobbyists to help obtain more government funding.”Health minister Deb Matthews reacted swiftly to the report, announcing legislation that will ban the use of lobbyists and open hospitals to freedom of information legislation by January 1, 2012.  The auditor-general also found “significant” problems with consultant contracts signed by LHINs The revelations contained in Wednesday’s report are reminiscent of those unearthed last December, when Mr. McCarter detailed spending abuses at eHealth Ontario. That agency, created by the Liberal government, was found to have given millions in sole-sourced contracts to high-priced consultants with few controls and little oversight.“I’m not afraid to say that I’m really sorry this has gone on,” said Matthews. “I don’t think this is acceptable. I don’t think we’ve been as accountable as we ought to have been. We owe it to taxpayers to ensure that every dollar they spend on taxes gets the best possible value.” http://www.nationalpost.com/news/Ontario+Auditor+General+slams+hospital+lobbying/3701093/story.html

 As usual; the governments do a really bad job of managing cops, civil and public servants hospitals, doctors, nurses, tax payers money and their false solution to the problem is to raise the taxes, even the indirect taxes too..

.

Did you check out the serious very large amount of alcohol consumption that was, is being carried out at the Montreal city hall where there is vast corruptions.
.
We need to also stop electing liars and alcoholics too.. be for certain there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, and that there is a direct correlation between the people who are heavy alcohol users.. that they are the same persons who will also take bad drugs… and they will also be the same persons who also now do cheat , lie, steal, commit tax evasions.. as they have no solid morality
.
(Gal 5:19 KJV) Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Politicans, civil and Public servants Pigging out, living high on the hog, or getting drunk and patronistic hiring practices, are clearly an unacceptable abuse.
.
.. and you should be immiedately fired from your job, even if you are an MP, Senator, or an MPP, MLA, a cop , civil and public servant. So rightfully do Fire all the drunks, alcoholics, tax payer money abusers in the government firstly too. Seriously in the selection of the new   political candidates for federal and provincial elections, and senator snow  it would be nice also if each of the political party does also asks their people how often do they visit the bars and drink? how many martini’s they do have at lunch time?  do they eat at very expensive restaurants too? do they entertain their friends on their companies, departmental  expense accounts? or  have they ever padded, falsified their own  expenses accounts” all  too just for a start.. and do they lie to others too often too?
http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/02/03/known-alcoholics-on-the-job/
.
Now the Provincial Governments, tend to now want to to reduce gambling or alcohol consumption for it is a great money maker for them, and too many Canadian politicians and cops do like to booze.. The problem with the Police or Politicians consuming too much alcohol, is that alcohol not only makes you a mental retard cause it does now kills your brain cell, alcohol also kills your emotions of compassion, and reasoning ability now as well.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/drink-alcohol-and-die/

Hospitals in Ontario used money that should have been spent on front-line health-care services and instead awarded lucrative contracts to consultants who spent freely on travel and entertainment, the province’s auditor says. The auditor’s findings, released on Wednesday, demonstrate that Premier Dalton McGuinty has failed to impose an era of restraint within the public sector http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/ontario/consultants-cashed-in-at-ontario-hospitals-report-says/article1765378/  
 
Ontario Liberals in the dark about lobbyists? Hardly The hiring of lobbyists by publicly funded agencies, including hospitals, has been going on since Dalton McGuinty’s Liberals took office seven years ago, and long before that, as well. Some organizations will likely blur the line by hiring consultants who aren’t registered as lobbyists, but know how to work the channels. And others will get around the ban on “external” lobbyists by putting them on staff, earning six-figure salaries rather than contract fees.
 http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/adam-radwanski/ontario-liberals-in-the-dark-about-lobbyists-hardly/article1766143
.
  
Instead of properly managing the tax payer’s money Ontario hospitals wrongfully seem to resort to try to get more money.  Half the institutions  audited had hired lobbyists. And is this really appropriate to allow people to use taxpayers’ money to lobby for more taxpayers money? No!  The same bad Liberals never learned to do things right and honestly the first time even.. even had allow their consultant sins to go on falsely.
.
 
Long term care facilities in Edmonton, and across Alberta, now are raising their accommodation fees in 2010  It works out to a three percent hike, that brings the new fee to $1,700 a month.  Similar to Quebec and BC costs now too.  Ruth Adria, with the Elder Advocates of Alberta Society, says seniors still complain about the food, small portions and cramped living quarters. It’s the first increase in over two years, when a seven percent hike was approved.  Adria says a $128 million class-action lawsuit, launched after the government increased rates at long-term care homes by 40 percent in 2003, is still working its way through the courts. Quebec  has very similar health fees.. 
.
 
 But here is what most citizens in Canada are really surprised, they are not even still not aware that such fees exist in the first place.. they were lied to believe that all Medicare cost was free paid by their tax dollars, and most Canadians still are not aware of this 1700 dollars per month cost per person and they do rightfully object to it when they find out about it too.  
.

The Vancouver Coastal Health Authority began in July to charge patients $29 a day while they’re recovering in hospital after surgery or serious injury. The fees can add up to $900 a month, which could be especially onerous for seniors.  They are on fixed incomes,”  . “It is a financial burden and it is a lot of stress.  “They’re now receiving room and board, convalescent care and food services,”   These user fees are the same as in equivalent private care,  “The fees people are being asked to pay in a convalescent care facility are exactly the same as they would be paying if they’re subject to fees in a residential care facility,”   But the point is that patients are in public care, not residential care. “What they’re doing is taking people, who are hospital patients, and charging them fees. That’s something, in our system, we haven’t done,”  . “It’s taking people at their most vulnerable moment and charging them for it.”
 http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2010/10/20/bc-hospital-user-fees.html   

.

And whose tax dollars paid for the  hospitals, doctors and nurse training  anyway? The Premier has the false nerve to tell the  taxpayers they should have to pay to use publicly funded health care.  No one should pay this additional  TAX on health care.  Hospital  patients are being well fed? Oh really, or a lot of hungry patients who can’t get so much as a cracker between meals. All the ward kitchens have been stripped and no food is available, except at meal times.  Billions and Billions for Friends, consultants, abroad too , but to hell with our sick, elderly parents and families. 

.

In Quebec three quarters of appointees to the board of directors of several major corporations during the past seven years contributed money to the Quebec Liberals… many of the directors of major Crown corporations such as Hydro-Quebec, the Quebec Liquor Corp. and Loto-Quebec also contributed to the provincial Liberal party. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/101020/national/que_liberals_patronage 
.
.
Ex OPP police chief Julian Fantino  caught my attention when he clearly lied about the causes of car accidents in southern, he lied when he had said speeding is the main cause of car accidents in Ontario , he should have known better, distracted, drunk and impaired drivers, road ragers rather are the main cause of car accidents..  so next it came as no surprise to me when the Devil PM Stephen Harper himself asked Julian Fantino to become a Conservative federal MP candidate He should be right at home with the too may liars we have elected.. it seems we like to continue to elect Liars.  
 .

“In our view, the Commissioner’s behaviour and actions do not pass the test of public scrutiny and are inappropriate and unacceptable for a public servant — most notably for the Agent of Parliament specifically charged with the responsibility of upholding integrity in the public sector and of protecting public servants from reprisal,” the report says.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/former-whistleblowers-advocate-failed-her-job-auditor-general.html

INADEQUATE JUSTICE MINISTERS AND RCMP TOO

 
 
Many of us have been reading the news, hearing on the TV radio the decades of the bad acts of the too many bad cops in Canada.. Garbage in still means garbage out.. the problem lies with the  bad managers, bad supervisors who had allowed bad cops and bad  RCMP personnel to be hired and next not properly supervised   as well.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/09/01/the-rcmp-is-still-the-big-bad-wolf-in-sheep-clothing/
 
IF  YOU REGULARLY READ MY POSTS YOU DO KNOW THAT I RIGHTFULLY   HAVE LITTLE OR NOT RESPECT  FOR MOST OF FEDERAL, PROVINCIAL JUSTICE MINISTERS, THE RCMP AND COPS IN  CANADA THE LAST 4 DECADES NOW TOO. THEY ALL HAVE TO EARN MY RESPECT.. THEY SEEM TO FALL SHORT too often too . http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/10/25/canadas-bad-police-officers/
 
The Nova Scotia Police Review Board is hearing allegations of gun mishaps, drug use and inappropriate sexual behaviour among some RCMP officers whose former commander is now the province’s justice minister. The allegations are contained in an anonymous letter that was made public Monday at the hearing of Ambrose Heighton, a former police chief of the Town of Stellarton. Heighton claims he was fired two years ago because he complained about RCMP in Pictou County. He is appealing his dismissal to the police review board. Two letters were presented at his hearing Monday in Stellarton. In one letter, Heighton complained about a poisoned relationship between the RCMP and municipal police departments. He claimed publicity-seeking Mounties overrode the wishes of the Canadian military at the funeral of Cpl. Kevin Megeney, a local soldier killed in Afghanistan in March 2007. He said they provided a guard of honour just to get their picture in the media. Heighton also forwarded an anonymous letter to the Department of Justice. In it, the writer alleges sexually inappropriate conduct at a private party attended by RCMP members, as well as cocaine use. There are also claims that an off-duty RCMP officer dropped a service pistol while jogging and another lent a prohibited weapon to a girlfriend. The letter also alleges that the RCMP district commander staff sergeant at the time, Ross Landry, was aware of these claims and did nothing about them.   Landry,  was named justice minister after the June 2009 election,  The justice minister usually is responsible for the police review board. But Landry has been relieved of this responsibility until a decision is made on Heighton’s case. Six complaints were filed against Heighton in November 2007. He was fired in October 2008 after the RCMP officers named in the anonymous letter complained to Stellarton’s police commission. The officers named in the letter tried to prevent it from being made public, but lost their fight. RCMP Staff Sgt. Jim Gillis carried out a code-of-conduct review of the RCMP officers. He testified Monday there was a discussion with Landry about his inaction in disciplining members. The RCMP said it would be inappropriate to comment on the results of its investigation into the anonymous allegations.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/101005/canada/canada_novascotia_ns_police_stellarton_landry
 
 
 
It is a sad fact of life that even in Quebec that unless you are murdered, violently treated, that when you are abused, robbed, slandered, mistreated, or whatever do not expect the pretentious governments to come to your help or the pretentious self servicing  police for generally you are on your own..The governments and the police mostly will not solve any problems because for the most part they are the cause of the continuation of most of the problems. They and their related civil and public servants  are liars and thieves who even falsely do  take the tax payers pay, money for managing the heath care system but next instead do almost  nothing good in reality..

Prime Minister of Canada announces legacy gift to Michaëlle Jean Foundation

 
 
Prime Minister Stephen Harper today recognized the contributions made by Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean during her tenure as Canada’s 27th Governor General.  In keeping with the tradition of honouring outgoing Governors General, the Prime Minister announced that the Government of Canada will be supporting the Michaëlle Jean Foundation as its legacy gift to Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean.  “As Canada’s 27th Governor General, Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean has distinguished herself through her engagement with Canadians and her compassion and leadership in responding to the earthquake in Haiti,” said Prime Minister Harper.  “I am proud to announce support today for the Michaëlle Jean Foundation, which will help more young people become active citizens in their communities.”  The Government of Canada will be providing $3 million in support of the Michaëlle Jean Foundation, a non-profit organization that will promote citizen engagement through the arts and creativity, with a special emphasis on youth from underprivileged, rural and northern communities in Canada.  The Government will also match funds raised privately by the foundation, to a maximum of $7 million over a ten-year period. Since the 1960s, the Government of Canada has honoured former Governors General by helping them contribute to Canadian society by supporting the initiatives they pursued while in office. http://www.pm.gc.ca/eng/media.asp?category=1&pageId=26&id=3681
 
When I see in comparison TO THESE MERE 3 MILLION DOLLARS NOW  as to how much the government of Canada now still spends on entertainment booze, alcohol I can see where their wrong priorities now still is.. and cops falsely are still mainly going after the car speeders, the money making generating revenues and not the drunk drivers who cause the majority of the accidents too.. EVEN COPS, RCMP DRIVE WHEN DRUNK THESE DAYS IN CANADA
 

Canada placed 17th among 24 industrialized countries in terms of the material well-being enjoyed by its poorest children, ninth in terms of their health and third in education, according to the report. Read more: http://www.canada.com/Canada+poorest+children+falling+behind+UNICEF/3919923/story.html#ixzz175HMMZbo

In case you are not aware heavy drinkers, alcoholics too often tend to kill their consciences, compassion and tend not to care about the children’s well being.

Drink Alcohol and Die « The non conformer’s Canadian Weblog   Drink Alcohol and Die or Kill is fast becoming Canada’s preoccupation, main goal, slogan.. Alcohol and alcoholics the unacceptable main cause of vehicular  accidents, domestic violence, and so many other ills… DRUNK DRIVING  KILLS AT LEAST 5 TIMES MORE PERSONS OVER SPEEDING FIRSTLY  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/01/02/alcohol/

 

 You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors,  police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers, bad PERSONS   who STILL DO say that ALL OF  bad people, INCLUDING the ALCOHOLICS, the bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. The RCMP maximum 10 days punishment is always absurd, permanent dismissal is what is always needed with the bad cops and their clearly bad superiors who had managed and hired them too.. Bad solicitor generals as well should be fired ASAP.

 

Alcohol is more dangerous than illegal drugs like heroin and crack cocaine, according to a new study.Heroin, crack cocaine and methamphetamine, or crystal meth, were the most lethal to individuals. When considering their wider social effects, alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine were the deadliest. But overall, alcohol outranked all other substances, followed by heroin and crack cocaine. Experts said alcohol scored so high because it is so widely used and has devastating consequences not only for drinkers but for those around them. When drunk in excess, alcohol damages nearly all organ systems. It is also connected to higher death rates and is involved in a greater percentage of crime than most other drugs, including heroin. All governments should consider more education programs and raising the price of alcohol so it isn’t as widely available.    “What governments decide is illegal is not always based on science,”  for monetary considerations about revenue and taxation, like those garnered from the alcohol and tobacco industries, may influence decisions about which substances to regulate or outlaw. “Drugs that are legal cause at least as much damage, if not more, than drugs that are illicit,”   http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/101031/health/health_eu_med_dangerous_alcohol
 
Provincial Governments, cops too  do not want to reduce gambling or alcohol consumption for it is a great money maker for them, and too many Canadian politicians and cops do like to booze..
 
Don’t be also absurd and say that one man the RCMP boss alone was, is the problem, even  the last many many decades.. the RCMP officers and all of their bad superiors were, are rather the problems still. I have been rightfully complaining about the too often  bad, drunk, cost ineffective, pretentious  RCMP for over 25 years ever since they had abused me in the Canmore Alberta and othe places too.. even with their revenue generating money pit where they make for decades annualy millions and millions of dollars from tourist  leaving the Banff park, or going to an airport.
 

 NOW WHY IS IT BAD PEOPLE DO NOT CHANGE NEXT BESIDE THE FACT THEY LIKE TO DO BAD THINGS, IT IS ALSO CAUSE THEY FALSELY  REFUSE TO ADMIT THE THINGS THEY DO ARE BAD.
