The problem of doing your own thing

stop G

The problem of doing your own thing, sadly can too often mean also that it is harmful to yourself and still  also  next to the others. but there will be always the 30 percent hard core persons who will still vigorously support it..
.
For example: there is the false reasoning that the supposedly positive   benefits that “the increase use of  Marijuana might largely displace alcohol use, producing little or no net increase in intoxication but producing a safer society overall since pot is less damaging than alcohol”, is faulty at it’s core since Pot undeniable cause irreversible brain damages, leads to not just to an addiction too it like alcohol, but also similarly cause mental retardation in both cases.. Alcohol is still a basic  “stepping-stone drug” to other immoral acts, bad drug usages.. even if it is legal, cheap, potent. The people who take pot still tend to not stop consuming alcohol.. and other bad drugs too.. People who approve of their usages are stoned, or  then they must be just plain stupid! The myth that  people who use it cause no harm to other people is a myth still too..  The negative side effects of alcohol and bad drugs  are well know already…the false supposedly positive statements is an ostrich approach that  still neglects all of the other real negative realities.
.

A world-renowned hacker, New Zealand-born Barnaby Jack who died in San Francisco in July, overdosed on a mix of heroin, cocaine and other drugs, a coroner’s report shows. An autopsy revealed that “acute mixed drug intoxication” led to his death, San Francisco’s medical examiner said. The report also had said Mr Jack’s girlfriend had found him lying in bed unresponsive, with “multiple bottles of beer and champagne in the garbage can“.

.

PEOPLE WHO TAKE DRUGS, ALCOHOL TEND ALSO TO CHEAT, LIE, STEAL. INDULGE IN PORN, COMMIT ADULTERY, TAX EVASIONS.. AS THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A LITTLE BIT PREGNANT SIN  HERE TOO..

.

Most headlines about moderate alcohol consumption are still misleading ones —such as a drink or two a day is good for your heart, your soul, and may even extend your lifespan! But a  new study finds that regularly consuming even moderate amounts of alcohol can cause a decrease in brain plasticity, or the brain’s ability to generate new cells.  It rather kills even existing brain cells..  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/04/01/alcohol-consumptiom-is-still-one-of-canadas-biggest-problem/

.

There is always still the reality of the  warnings of the health risks of marijuana and alcohol usage, rightful warnings that cannot be ignored or dreamed away. .I can’t, for the life of me, understand how any normal, honest, rational person can, in good conscience, support the legal availability of alcohol, or any extremely harmful drug  as It’s quite baffling, contrary to good personal health care. in any case with the human tendency to excess like with anything, too much of  any thing can be still really  bad, harmful  to you  Smoking pot is different here too. . Even plain cigarette smoking is harmful to you as we all can know.

.

Everyone who drink or use pot  will suffer brain injury but the Youths who drink or use pot are more likely than others to suffer  traumatic  brain injury. Alcohol and drugs can damage a teen’s brain in more ways than people think.  Their negative Symptoms include loss of consciousness, dizziness, headaches, moodiness, difficulty concentrating and increased sensitivity to light and sounds. Teens who reported having 40 or more drinks in the past year had more than five times the odds of suffering a traumatic brain injury than youths who abstained. Those who smoked pot 10 or more times in the past year were more than three times as likely to report a brain injury. But booze and pot can also make people dizzy and disoriented and alter their perception of distance and space.  We already do know from adult studies just how devastating some of these   drinking alcohol  or   pot use injuries can be on all of the people’s quality of life, their ability to hold steady employment, their relationships, substance use and mental health.   http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/drink-alcohol-and-die/

.

Yes all of the persons who take bad drugs and alcohol suffer undeniably irreversible brain damage, death of brain cells, become more and more mentally  retarded. Believe it or not Accept it or not!  Most headlines about moderate alcohol consumption are still misleading ones —such as a drink or two a day is good for your heart, your soul, and may even extend your lifespan! But a  new study finds that regularly consuming even moderate amounts of alcohol can cause a decrease in brain plasticity, or the brain’s ability to generate new cells.  It rather kills even existing brain cells.. 

.
Once the alcohol is absorbed into the tissue, it affects your mind and body.  Blood alcohol concentration can rise up to 20 minutes after having a drink. After alcohol is absorbed it leaves the body in three ways: the kidneys, lungs, and liver. Alcohol is not a stimulant, it is actually a sedative-depressant of the central nervous-system, it is capable of rupturing blood capillaries and veins, it does not warm you up; in fact it makes you colder by increasing perspiration and causing body heat loss, it damages the branched end of nerve cells that bring messages into the cell, causing disruptions to brain function. It depletes the body of many essential nutrients such as all the B vitamins, especially B1, B2, B3,B6, B12, folic acid, vitamins C and K, zinc, magnesium and potassium. It can hamper the liver’s ability to process fat. It can lead to liver toxicity and disease. The high sugar content of alcoholic drinks can lead to hypoglycemia and predispose to diabetes. Drinking alcohol regularly can lead to its dependence. Drinking alcohol damages the liver, kidneys, and lungs
.
Alcohol consumption has previously been linked to a reduced bone mineral density (BMD), or osteoporosis, and increases the risk of fractures especially since  bone fractures can be the result of falls, and   one in three adults over 65 will experience a fall each year, this is a serious issue. And too much booze can cause people to age prematurely. It impairs your driving now too no matter how old you are.  Some of the wider known effects of alcohol include diminished performance, mental impairment, possible addiction, diabetes and liver disease. Now  there   a very few people, though, who can  have one small drink  too.. Yes too many have ended up dying from alcohol abuse, and as well there are those whose alcoholism led them to stop taking care of themselves.  Alcoholism certainly can increase the risk of many different diseases occurring, especially as an individual grows older, and most of   the negative effects are irreversible as well.
 .
“As alcohol is a by-product of yeast digestion, it can have an irritating effect on the lining of the stomach and gradually weaken the kidneys and liver, leading to serious health problems and can prove fatal in extreme cases. When the stomach is weakened it becomes less efficient at digesting food, which inevitably interferes with a healthy metabolism and positive weight loss. Also, after alcohol is consumed it is then the first energy supply to be used up by your body when combined with carbohydrates, proteins and fats, which postpone the fat-burning process. As a result this can lead to greater fat storage, meaning that whenever you drink you will not be burning away your fat stores in the near future. Another shocking fact is that alcohol supplies almost twice as many calories as proteins and carbohydrates, seven calories per gram! And as all of these extra calories you are getting from alcohol contain zero nutrients, they accelerate fat storage while also having a negative effect on a healthy metabolism.”
.
 Now every drop of alcohol you drink, every bad drug you take, kills your brain cell, and you become more and more brain dead.. retarded and Recent medical studies also do indicate that young Men who take marijuana, drugs are also twice as likely to get testicular cancer next before the age of 35 even
 .
Statistics which show an increase of in the number of people   binge drinking, getting drunk  and that the statistics also show that we still have a long way to deal with this major problem. 81% of people who choose to drink are still exceeding the recommended daily limits. The cost of alcohol misuse to our society is very real. In just over 10 years, there has been a startling 86% increase in the numbers of people dying due to alcohol related harm. The harsh reality is that although alcohol misuse is known to be damaging and harmful to health and well-being, many people still drink to excess. This must change,
 .
If you drink 2 martinis at lunch time or supper time  for a start  you are definitely an alcoholic. Now 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. Politicians, civil and there  Public servants Pigging out, living high on the hog, or getting drunk, and patronistic hiring practices, are clearly an unacceptable abuse.
.
 “One of the risks to seniors of drinking alcohol is that as human bodies age, they lose muscle mass and their body functions slow down, meaning it takes less alcohol for them to become more intoxicated or suffer other ill effects, such as bone loss or cerebral atrophy.  Another problem  that alcohol often  interacts negatively with medication, which older people too often are be taking a significant amount of, depending on their health.” Alcohol may seriously increase your risk of health problems and even seriously now damage your heart.  Although some would say it may offer some very marginal health benefits,  for your heart. Are you willing to take the risks  of bad health associated with the consumption of alcohol still then?

Too big for their britches..

c

Look the citizens are busy working, paying their taxes and they have elected Ministers to look after them instead.. It amazes me thus next that now for years and years  one of the obvious major Citizens complaint in Canada that is still around is about the bad Bell phone company and why does it takes so long for the CRTC and the governments, ministers to  even deal with it too.. and the other very often complaint still is about the bad cops getting away with abuses and murders.. Don’t believe me see how very  popular my posts are about bad Bell and bad cops still are… almost as much  as the bad comments about the bad PM… and bad alcoholics, divorce.

.

The useless CTRC does so little and so late..

.

The CRTC said it is concerned that “some wireless companies” are making it difficult for smaller mobile operators  that do not operate a national network to compete in the marketplaceThe Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has launched a deeper investigation on wholesale wireless roaming rates in the country with the goal of determining in the country’s big three wireless carriers are charging excessive rates to smaller providers for use of their networks.Based on information obtained by the CRTC, some of the large providers are charging or proposing to charge, their smaller Canadian competitors significantly higher wholesale roaming rates than those charged to U.S.-based wireless companies, a statement from the telecom regulator said. Higher wholesale rates can impact the retail rates that smaller companies charge their customers.: http://www.itworldcanada.com/article/crtc-ramps-up-probe-on-roaming-rates/

Investigators shielded officers in police shooting of Montreal teen, coroner’s   A Quebec coroner’s report into the police shooting of a teenager that led to a riot in Montreal has found investigators failed to follow proper procedure and went out of their way to shield the officers involved from scrutiny. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/investigators-didnt-use-proper-procedure-in-villanueva-shooting-coroners-report-finds/article16001813/

Fredy Villanueva coroner report criticizes police practices.. Villanueva, 18, was shot and killed on Aug. 9, 2008, by Const. Jean-Loup Lapointe of Montreal police, after the young man was found playing an illegal game of dice with his brother and three friends in Montreal’s Henri-Bourassa Park.

“The death of M. Villanueva is the result of a multitude of human nature factors, which, if considered on their own, would not have logically justified this result,” the report states.

“Each year, thousands of infractions as trivial as playing dice in the park are the subject of police interventions that go well, even when police and members of the public disagree.”

The coroner’s report, released Tuesday morning, made about 20 recommendations, which focus mainly on police practices. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/fredy-villanueva-coroner-report-criticizes-police-practices-1.2466825

The pretentious, useless, cost ineffective RCMP

0canada-rcmp-security-2010-e

The pretentious, useless, cost ineffective RCMP is not something new even if the Canadian Auditor General now says the same thing… Several major federal departments have failed to fix previously identified weaknesses in safeguarding taxpayers’ dollars and are dragging their heels on long-overdue changes, the federal auditor general says in a new report. Some people who pose a threat to Canadians’ security managed by the RCMP  have managed to enter the country illegally because of lax border entry controls. Auditor General Michael Ferguson said he was “very concerned that our audit found too many examples of controls not working.”

The auditor general’s report found gaps in security at Canada’s entry points, which have allowed some dangerous people to slip into the country.“We know in one sample of 49 that two people were successful getting into the country, people with serious criminal backgrounds,” Ferguson said.“In the sample, the numbers don’t sound large, but these samples were over a short period of time and if you extrapolate that over a longer period of time and the number of people trying to get into the country, the results are concerning.” http://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/highlights-of-auditor-general-michael-ferguson-s-report-1.1561040

Useless Minister of Public Safety Steven Blaney said his government will accept the AG’s recommendations.”I have asked and can confirm that both CBSA and the RCMP are implementing…the findings and recommendations the Office of the Auditor General,”   and who believes these liars, I do not.. RCMP still cannot say for sure what percentage of people get nabbed when they try to sneak across the border between regular ports of entry.

The Canada Border Services Agency and the RCMP need to tighten border security work and take steps to better measure how effective they are at keeping illegals out.  “However, our audit found that the controls are not working as intended at and between ports of entry,” she said. “We recommended that the (CBSA) and RCMP collect and use information on the performance of their border controls, so that they know the extent to which controls are working, at which locations and what needs to be improved.”http://blogs.windsorstar.com/2013/11/26/too-many-criminals-still-getting-past-canadas-border-security-audit-says/

Really the RCMP should focus on their jobs a little more instead of the political theatre they are so often engaged.

Why doesn’t The RCMP admit that more than a  few RCMP rogues might just be complicit with facilitating crime at the border?  Including neglecting to record data about it.  We need the corruption cleaned up!

” Sounds like some Canadian officials are complicit with these border breaches.  Maybe start by putting under secret surveillance those RCMP who neglect to record data.  Then check out who among police are not only neglecting to keep records but who also record falsehoods about what happens.  You might be surprised just how much of that is going on in police services, not just RCMP but provincial and municipal police as well.  Two officers, separate police forces, each told me they are keeping two sets of records, one for the official record and one to rely on in the event they are ever required to bear witness about what is really happening.  One of them said she keeps the second record in a safe she bolted to the floor at her home.:”

According to the audit, the Canada Border Services Agency has made “little progress” in terms of its monitoring of so-called “lookouts”: individuals or shipments headed for Canada that intelligence has determined may pose a threat. http://o.canada.com/news/national/auditor-general-border-security-cause-for-concern/

Dangerous people have slipped into Canada because of insufficient border controls, according to a report by the auditor general. The audit  raised concerns about the RCMP’s success in intercepting illegal migrants between ports of entry.http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/11/26/auditor-general-report-finds-high-risk-individuals-slipped-into-canada-because-of-insufficient-border-controls/

Ferguson also slammed the Mounties for how they monitor efforts to stop illegal Canada-U.S. border crossings between ports of entry. In an audit of cases from 2011 to 2013, the RCMP intercepted only half of the illegal land border crosses, and about 80% of the marine crossings. http://www.torontosun.com/2013/11/26/auditor-generals-report-ag-raises-alarm-over-lax-border-controls

Useless Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney  said his department will work with the CBSA and the RCMP to see how they can improve the exchange of information.  http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/auditor-general-concerned-about-food-and-rail-safety-border-security-

“Unfortunately, Conservatives have become so mired in scandal, and so focused on their well-connected friends, that they are neglecting their basic responsibilities. Their attempts to cut corners are putting Canadians at risk.”

You can read the full report here.

Look the RCMP even had known   for years specifics details by wire tapping about the Corruption in the Quebec city halls and they next still did nothing good about it..  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/?s=rcmp

Yes  the   RCMP again  have lost much more respect over the past two years as well as embarrassing Canada again world-wide. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/07/20/canadas-police-forces/

Speeding is not the main cause of car accidents, impaired driving is, but too many cops are alcoholics it seems who wrongfully do sympathize with drunks and as a result do not arrest drunks all year .. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/07/18/we-all-do-know-it-is-merely-the-tip-of-a-large-iceberg/

Fire the bad cops And don’t try to give us all  the crap that any  bad police officers can be next still retrained, reformed .. the police themselves tend not to believe that any of the bad guys can be reformed

As the RCMP deny all this,  they continue to tap my phone, monitor my posts, emails?

September 17, 2012

We know or should know about the too common grotesque abuse of the taxpayers in all governments.

where even the supervisors now can be part of the abuse.. and we need to continually be vigilant here. It was recently revealed in Alberta that the man who was hired, ironically, to keep a watch on the  expenses and costs of others, was living high on the hog with taxpayers’ money   Follow the money.. include the bad emplyees severance pay, costs of  re-hiring and pension payouts. Fire all those fpersons who have or do approve any outrageous expense claims, like lavish meals, gasoline, car allowance, car washes, car insurance, a new  windshield for his Mercedes and some six packs of beer for “meals at home.”  http://www.calgaryherald.com/opinion/columnists/Shooting+messenger+health+spending+excesses+sick/7252447/story.html
 .

Sadly the Tax payers are still to often abused. And here I am not just talking about the long costly almost daily entertainment lunches with Wine and Beverages, and  those too often out of town, even out of the country mostly personal trips charged to the taxpayers. Or the city hall employee who while on paid services goes to the airport to pick up his mother in law, or the employee who takes the cultivated flowers from city hall for his own use in his own yard.

.

We need to call into question the sick spending practices of current  and former and the current   service executives, managers, supervsiors civil servants, cops too. Even the posting of all   expense records for all, board members, executive members, is not enough for the  Posting of the expenses of direct reports to all of executives is also now very important, since without that, some unscrupulous executives could ask their assistants to pick up the tab to be approved by them later.

Critics are calling for tighter oversight on how cabinet ministers submit their  expenses, saying they should at least be held to the same standards as MPs. The system in place for ministers is too lax, they say, and allows for  too many questionable expenses to slip through.”We’ve had a number of  spending scandals with ministers, so you’d expect the red flag to be raised and  have some measure of accountability,” But it seems to go on and on and on.” ” it sometimes seems as if minister’s expense sheets receive the rubber stamp. 
  Global News | Critics call for more oversight on ministers’ expenses

A taxpayer watchdog group says MPs should be forced to publish spending details online .Current rules outlined by the House of Commons Board of Internal Economy enable MPs to spend 3% of their budgets, or up to $10,734, on hospitality. Details of MP spending is not publicly available. http://www.torontosun.com/2012/09/09/mps-should-publish-spending-online-watchdog-group

The other unacceptable Malaise

Unless we are deliberate ostriches by now we all should know about shit disease.. what happens when people, doctors and nurses do not wash their hands in hospitals.. people die. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/09/01/shit-disease-c-difficile-or-what-ever/ 

The other unacceptable Malaise is sweeping refuse, shit under the rug.. the civil servant managers serious, personal failure to deal with ther unacceptable, crooked, dishonest, thieving subordinates rather than disposing of them, firing them, putting then into the garbage bins is still needed as some people only learn to do good the hard way, when they feel real negative repercussions. I strongly suggest we get rid of these bad managers, firstly, immediately, all bad cops included..

- Canada Border Services Agency is merely  documenting cases of travellers complaints of  enduring rude behaviour and lengthy interrogations, as well as one case where someone was falsely identified as a person “with criminal ties but here too real action is needed ASAP too..

- A suspicious number of federal contracts for goods and services appear rigged to favour one bidder, suggests another  survey. The report, from the contracting watchdog at Public Works, provides further evidence of problems even with the Harper government’s credibility.. Remember when full accountability was the once promised word for His election? http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/watchdogs-report-suggests-problems-remain-with-federal-procurement/article4515095/

-  Niagara Police need to effectively  deal with serious allegations of steroid use and drug smuggling involving their own officers in the wake of an arrest of one constable  Const. Geoff Purdie, a decorated 13-year veteran of the force and a former police instructor at a local college by U.S. authorities in April. A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent charged Purdie with conspiracy to export and distribute controlled substances after tracking Purdie’s repeated trips from Fort Erie into Niagara Falls, N.Y., to pick up packages which, according to U.S. investigators, were sent to a private mail box filled with drugs.

and the list  goes on and on..

The Conservative government has quietly given Canada’s national police force and  the federal border agency the authority to use and share information that was  likely extracted through torture well they should listen also  to the citizens complaints.

The Conservatives are really now no better over the Liberals in Canada

This is getting ridiculous.  When it comes to punishment for criminal, unacceptable bad  acts Canada for the last 50 years even has double standards, one for the ordinary Joe Blow and one for the Professionals, the  Professionals – Doctors and Nurses, CEO’s, Managers, Accountants, Police they  all  tend to get off Scott free, rewarded even..
.
For example do take the case of the Hamilton hospital shit disease where people got sick an died no one got punished for neglecting to clean properly the toilets, hospitals again.. or take the case where Alberta health system CFO quits, after his lavish spending revealed and supposedly will get a full severance package too.. Employee gets fired for misconduct and doesn’t even qualify for UI. If an Executive gets fired for misconduct, and so what they next do get to keep the villa, the Lexus and also get   a fat severance package. 
.
Even in Alberta  the feeling of entitlement with the too often western separatists is  similar to those facts also we hear about often happening  in Quebec, Ontario as well. Recently in Quebec at the Concordia University many professionals got ridiculous severance packages all at tax payer’s expense too, where “two long-time donors to Concordia University announced   they are no longer giving money to the school, in protest of what they consider financial mismanagement.” “Accusations of internal, university financial mismanagement have dogged not only Concordia, but other Quebec institutions in recent years as well. It has been an issue of contention in the ongoing tuition hike debate, with student leaders and researchers arguing that if institutions managed their public funding more responsibly, universities would not be “underfunded,” or in such dire financial straits. Notable examples include the failed Université du Québec à Montréal Îlot Voyageur project of 2005 – which involved the resignation of rector Roch Denis with a $173,000 severance package, a $200 million loan in-trust from the Quebec government, and more than $185 million in cost overruns – as well as a McGill’s 2009 $321,471 severance package to former VP Ann Dowsett Johnston. Since 2000, Concordia has paid out millions in settlements to departing administrators, dismissing two presidents since 2007. In 2010, Judith Woodsworth, received a $703,000 separation package two years into her five-year term as university president. Read more: http://www.montrealgazette.com/business/Concordia+loses+long+time+donors+because+financial+mismanagement/6960635/story.htm 
.
When are these absurd  big severance packages going to stop too? Also now if Joe Blow had stolen from the company at work he in contrast shortly would go to jail or at the very least get fired quickly  with no compensation.  This resignation of Allaudin Merali in Alberta  even came just weeks after he was hired by Alberta Health Services. Now firstly  how someone like this can get hired when he left Ontario under similar circumstances?The bad managers who continue to hire these bad individuals  need now also to be held to account and fired too.    Also how can someone get severance when they have only been with an organization for three weeks?    It’s not the first high-profile departure   Three years ago, he had even left the  Ontario’s health system apparently under a similar dark cloud.In the fall of 2010, then-CEO Stephen Duckett and the same agency had parted ways after he rebuffed reporters at an emergency meeting by saying he was busy eating a cookie. Alberta Health Services later revealed his severance amounted to more than $735,000.
.
*** update***  The former CFO of Alberta Health Services will not receive a severance  after his contract was terminated when details of his expenses were exposed. AHS now plans to publicly post the expenses of the CEO and other senior  officials.
.

“OTTAWA — Members of Parliament aren’t able to properly scrutinize the government’s spending plans and are effectively rubber-stamping billions of dollars in proposed spending without due diligence, a new report says. The issue, the all-party parliamentary report explains, is MPs are expected to perform detailed scrutiny of the government’s spending plans, or “estimates,” but the committees receive little opportunity to review them and are only giving them “perfunctory attention” at best. “http://www.canada.com/news/dark+over+government+spending+parliamentary+report/6937710/story.html

Even the protection of abused seniors in Hospitals, old age homes in Quebec as well  is also non existent cause they also do have a pretentious ombudman, Ministers

They all do need in principle, to stop rewarding bad behavior and seriously manage our money a lot better. All clearly even another example of the Conservative government’s immoral double standard now as well and not just the Liberals…

HEALTH CARE STILL NEEDS TO BE SERIOUSLY IMPROVED FOR ALL CANADIANS

OUR HEALTH CARE STILL NEEDS TO BE SERIOUSLY IMPROVED FOR ALL CANADIANS, IT REQUIRES A LOT BETTER MANAGEMENT OVER WHAT WE PRESENTLY DO HAVE..

UNDENIABLY LATELY THE MEDICAL CARE IS GETTING WORSE IN QUEBEC TOO AND IT HAS EVEN TAKEN ME NOW YEARS TO TRY TO GET RESOLVED SOME OF MY BASIC MEDICAL PROBLEMS, EVEN REQUIRING MANY VISITS TO DIFFERENT DOCTORS, BECAUSE SOME WERE EITHER PRETENTIOUS AND  TOO INCOMPETENT TO DEAL WITH IT THE FIRST TIME, EVEN IN THE THE HOSPITAL EMERGENCY TRIAGE, CLINICS. NONE OF THIS WAS, IS ACCEPTABLE..

.

FIX IT..

The governments, Politicians cares about own good welfare firstly, the best joke of the year too

 

The governments, Politicians cares about own good welfare firstly, the best joke of the year too, in reality rather they are working realy hard everyday too looking first after themselves , and undeniably clearly living high on the hog at our expense, and that even includes too many of our bad civil and public servants too now.. and in the last 3 decades undeniably at least 50 percent of all new Canadian arrivals I met did, do abuse our generosity too, or commit social welfare frauds, or tax evasions, do not report all of their incomes..abuse our medicare systems… all just like too many Canadians also do..

Even the much too many still bogus refugees do receive better care than Canadian taxpayers because they cheat, lie, steal, commit tax evasions, abuse our goodness and it is still unacceptable.

And what about our elected political members, civil and public servants who too often have abused the tax payers generosity now as well, they also seem still to get away with it..
 
And all just as bad as the provinces, municipalities steal and abuse some of the federal money designated to help the citizens directly but they still did not fool me though too

 

Need we say more?

None of it is acceptable.

Canadian issues

OVER YEARS I HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT IMPORTANT ISSUES ON BEHALF OF ALL CANADIANS, issues that the government and the news media have not done enough about, and issues that I have had firsthand related experiences, knowledge about including the undeniable reality that

1 We have much too many crooked pastors, bad church elders in the Canadian Churches, non profitable organization such as the Salvation Army included now, bad persons who abuse the flock and misuse the donations…  not acceptable

2: We have too many bad cops, bad police supervisors in Canada, RCMP now included who have wrongfully not been dismissed from their jobs and have been allowed to be unpunished.. my recommendation to deal with this tend to be the same firstly public exposure and next cut off their budgets significantly until they do something about it.

3: Our medicare and the related care of the elderly persons also still needs much significant improvement.. Now about the Shit disease found in hospitals too often still, , the new media covers up the story by using fancy Latin names, but it is the same sickness that kills patients while none falsely has yet to be punished for it.. yes we have too many bad Nurses, bad Doctor, bad supervisors in Canada, bad persons, money hungry or lazy persons who have wrongfully not been dismissed from their jobs and have been allowed to be unpunished.. my own recommendation to deal with this tend to be the same firstly public exposure and next cut off their budgets significantly until they do something about it… plus my own personal solution to the problem was to change doctors and even change hospitals…   not acceptable

4: Justice and the courts.. I do my best to stay out of courts, cause I cannot trust anyone not even the judges or the lawyers.. sadly it is a well know and unacceptable fact that many lawyers are just big liars, and the related law societies falsely allows the lawyers to lie on behalf of their clients, bad judges now included…  not acceptable

5: Bad politicians and bad political parties.. Face we falsely tend to continue to elect the liars.. Most people too readily accept liars and their lies, and the bigger the easier it seems too. Even the news medias do lie and spin the truth too often….  not acceptable

Just read a news story from different sources and you tend to get very different results.. one news media reported on a story that no one had died, and another read said seven had died and six other persons were missing for example..  not acceptable

6: No doubt about it even big unions succeed falsely in silencing the truth, and falsely hinder the punishment of the guilty persons.. not acceptable

7: Massive welfare, social assistance and tax evasion is a major unacceptable very active Canadian event practised by old Canadians and new Canadians and the pretentious governments realy do fail to address the issues effectively still…  not acceptable

8: How can I now also even  leave out all those price gouging, abusive corporations like the oil firms, the monoplistic and bad telecommunication firms such as Rogers, Bell, Virgin, and the greedy, self centered major food grocery stores, pharmacies  now too…  not acceptable

etc..,

Once in power rules and money saving applies only to the opposition members.

Stephen Harper’s senior bureaucrats have been racking up some hefty airfares at a time of government restraint and controversy over travel.

Travel expenses recently posted for the final quarter of 2011 show executives at the Privy Council Office, the prime minister’s own department, paid costly fares last year on some of the most competitive routes to Europe and elsewhere.

Return airfare to Great Britain cost taxpayers $6,855 for Rennie Marcoux, assistant secretary to cabinet, to attend a week-long “cyber” conference in London last October.

The clerk of the Privy Council, Wayne Wouters, paid almost as much for a round-trip flight to London – $6,625 – for a public-service summit in November.

William Pentney, deputy secretary to cabinet, spent $3,566 on airfare to attend another international summit in London last June.

Paris, another popular European destination with plenty of airline competition, was also a favoured spot for Privy Council bureaucrats, who paid sky-high prices to get there.

Yvan Roy, legal counsel to Mr. Wouters, billed taxpayers $4,607 for a round-trip flight to Paris last October. The posted expense report does not explain the purpose of the trip or provide related costs, but a spokesman said it was for a conference hosted by the French government.

Another senior public servant in Mr. Harper’s department – Joseph Wild, assistant secretary to cabinet – spent $4,367 on airfare to an OECD conference in Paris.

The Irish capital of Dublin was also the destination for another hefty fare – $5,117, paid by Kristina Namiesniowski, assistant secretary to the cabinet. She was there to learn about “e-government.”

The jetsetters at Privy Council Office racked up other pricey airfares for several multi-stop trips overseas, making it difficult to compare prices directly.

Ward Elcock billed a whopping $15,278 to fly to four cities in Australia and New Zealand last October for two weeks of “meetings.” Elcock was travelling as the prime minister’s special adviser on human smuggling.

Mr. Harper’s national security adviser, Stephen Rigby, was a frequent flyer last year – a five-day visit to Singapore in June set taxpayers back $10,719 in airfare alone.

And Mr. Rigby’s week-long visit to Munich and London cost the treasury $6,733 in airline tickets.

All these travellers were public servants flying commercial, rather than the political staff who work inside the Prime Minister’s Office, which is part of the Privy Council Office.

Mr. Harper and his political staff typically fly on government-owned aircraft, rather than commercial airlines, largely for security and logistical reasons.

The Harper government was embroiled in several travel-related controversies in 2011. CTV News reported in September that the chief of defence staff, Gen. Walter Natynczyk, spent almost $1.5-million since 2008 flying on government-owned Challenger aircraft, once to a Caribbean holiday.

And late last year, it was revealed Defence Minister Peter MacKay called in a military search-and-rescue chopper to take him from a vacation at a Newfoundland fishing camp to a nearby airport, from which he flew to a government announcement in Ontario.

Conservative hypocrisy.. Once in power rules and money saving applies only to the opposition members.

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.

.

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,”

NO MORE police surveillance powers

The Harper government intends to make it easier for police to monitor Canadians’ Internet and smartphone activity – but Canada’s privacy commissioner Jennifer Stoddart says she has “deep concerns” about potential legislation that would boost police surveillance powers and access to private information. Stoddart expressed particular concerns about a proposal in the previous legislation that would have required internet service providers to give subscriber data to police and national security agencies without a warrant, including names, unlisted phone numbers and IP addresses. “Canadian authorities have yet to provide the public with evidence to suggest that CSIS or Canadian police cannot perform their duties under the current regime,” she wrote.

In addition to the provision allowing police to obtain internet subscriber information without a warrant, the previous lawful access bills also would have:

-Forced internet providers and other makers of technology to provide a “back door” to make communications accessible to police.

-Allowed police to get warrants to obtain information transmitted over the internet and data related to its transmission, including locations of individuals and transactions.

-Allowed courts to compel other parties to preserve electronic evidence.

Don’t get the wrong idea we can trust the police in Canada, or trust the police too often masturbating reviews of wrong doings by the police which mostly still tends to find the cops innocent of any wrong doings. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/01/28/dirty-rcmp-lays-dirty-again/

SQ wraps probe into bystander police shooting - Quebec provincial police have completed their probe of a Montreal police shooting that left two people dead last June, including an innocent bystander. In a case that made national headlines and prompted an angry anti-police march in Montreal, local officers shot a homeless man during a public disturbance and their gunfire also struck a man who was arriving for work at a nearby hospital. Provincial police said in a statement released Wednesday that the file has been handed over to Quebec’s director of criminal prosecutions. It will be up to that office to determine whether charges are laid against the police officers.

The June 7 shooting was one of a number of serious incidents involving police last summer, and reignited the debate surrounding how those incidents are investigated in Quebec. Currently, when members of a police force kill or injure citizens, another force takes over the investigation. In the days and weeks following the deaths opponents of that system renewed their calls for the creation of a civilian review board to handle such cases, saying it’s the only way to eliminate bias and ensure the credibility of the final reports.
