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…
PS NOW STEPHEN HARPER GET OFF THE BOOZE AND LOOK AFTER THE GOOD WELFARE OF ALL CANADIANS

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…
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.
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.
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.

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.

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

Latest news.. they did it againAlberta — 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.

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..
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.”
That is a major scandal that demands investigation.. http://www.vancouversun.com/Mulgrew+Cost+crime+rises+crime+rate+falls/10296393/story.html
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.
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.

1 Peter 5 :8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever.

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.
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.,,
“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
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!

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.

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..
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.

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/.
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.
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.
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.”
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 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
Like I have said..
- The pretend law and order Conservatives are ALSO hypocrites
- A serious warning for Quebec’s Premier Jean Charest too.
- Speeding is not the major cause of car accidents still
- Canada’s bad police officers

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=3681When 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.

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_alcoholProvincial 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.SEEhttp://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/03/03/smoking-alcohol-bad-drugs-bad-food-lack-of-exercise-stress/http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/02/19/the-time-has-come-to-end-glamourising-alcohol-sponsorship/http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/speeding-is-not-the-major-cause-of-car-accidents-still/
