Unbeliveable, disgusting, what a claim

1-canada-quebec-flag

He claims he can be a competent premier but

 ‘
Porter’s relationship with Dr. P. Couillard, who was Quebec’s health minister  and now the Premier of Quebec too, at the time, appears to be far more extensive than previously thought.  Couillard, claims he did not know that his long time business partner was a crook must have really really bad jugdement  or is lying.  Not only did Couillard and Porter go on fishing trips when Porter served as chief executive officer of the MUHC, he says, but Porter claims that Couillard phoned him every day for political advice.  http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Arthur+Porter+dishes+dirt+Harper+Couillard/10188705/story.html

but the same person Couillard could not spot a crook even as he worked with him for years..  but I can work with a person one day and likely tell you if he is a crook, immoral or not..  and that is why I tend to spell Liberals as Lieberals..

.

The really bad  Liberals  including DR Philippe Couillard  who had  allowed this province to go down in a mess, corruptions THEY STILL REALLY do not deserve to be a governing party ever. I am not a politician, but as an ordinary Citizen I knew that Dr Porter was likely clearly corrupt, the MUHC corrupted, and the city of Montreal as well and I had objected to it. And if Pauline Marois and her separatist  party fail to address the corruptions now properly, instead of sweeping it under the table as has been done wrongfully  for decades, they too  do not deserve to be a governing party ever Both the Liberals and the PQ parties had failed to properly deal with English language laws already too..

.

In 2006, Couillard, then health minister in the Liberal government, agreed to bring Quebec doctors’ salaries in line with those of their colleagues in the rest of Canada. As president of the FMSQ from 2010 to 2014, Barrette had defended the agreement before changing his tone when he became minister of health.

Now he is calling for a delay of the pay raise as part of the Couillard government’s promise to plug the provincial deficit by 2016. The value of the pay hike has been estimated to be anywhere between $900 million and $1.2 billion. Doctors’ salaries account for 62 per cent of the Régie assurance maladie du Québec’s yearly budget, amounting to $6.5 billion.

Instead of clawing back doctors’ salaries, the government should deal with the “daily waste related to the mismanagement of hospitals,” Francoeur wrote in a fiery editorial in Le Specialiste, the FMSQ’s monthly magazine.  http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Medical+specialists+accuse+Quebec+health+minister+negotiating+faith/10211519/story.html

The managers should be made to pay for their mismanagement and not the employees

Now when it comes to the province of Quebec and the pensions of its municipal employees the most reasonable, practical solution to pay of the heavy debt in Quebec is for all the politicians and manager’s salary to be cut by 50 percent as well as their related pensions after all it was under their leaderships  that the debts have arisen… and not the employees, Notice that the Municipal managers are still giving themselves big raises ..  Top managers at the Montreal Transit Corporation, (MTC), or STM in French, are getting big raises for the 3rd straight year.  The average increase for this year was nearly four per cent and the average salary for the top dozen or so bosses is pegged at more than 200-thousand dollars while salaries have increased, but not the quality of service. The MTC’s own yearly report says metro service interruptions due to mechanical reasons soared more than 20 per cent last year over the year before.

.

The Workers are  not to blame for the Quebec pension problem:

.

Stealing from the employees pension fund to pay off the debts is immoral.

.

Municipal workers rightfully do stage rallies against Bill 3 as hearings on the immoral  legislation get underway.

.

Quebec, and  Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard,  is falsely trying to snatch back promised pension money by fiat through its proposed Bill 3 pension reform legislation, without the  legal process of bankruptcy. The bill would override existing contracts, and force a restructuring of some 216 different defined benefit pension plans in 1,100 municipalities across Quebec. The bill would give municipalities the power to suspend indexation of any workers retired as of Jan. 1, 2014.

.

FTQ’s secretary general Serge Cadieux said  “The government is focusing all its attention to the demands made by certain mayors without considering any other suggestions made by the unions representing salaried municipal workers,”

.

The Montreal Police Brotherhood said that police officers will have to double their pension contributions.  “There will be no police officer who will want to come to work in Montreal,” said the brotherhood’s president Yves Francoeur.

QUEBEC DOES NOT WANT TO SEPARATE FROM CANADA

1-canada-quebec-flag

 

RECENT PROVINCIAL AND FDERAL ELECTIONS HAVE CONFIRMED THAT QUEBEC DOES NOT WANT TO SEPERATE FROM CANADA. Both the federal and the provincial separatist parties have been decimated, removed from Power and both leaders even lost their own ridings seat. The federal Gilles Duceppe and  the provincial Pauline Marois. The Quebec separatist vote crumbled, to the benefit of the NDP Party and  Couillard’s Quebec Liberals. PQ loses power after only 18 months in office

Nineteen months after they were ousted from power, the Liberals in Quebec will form the province’s next majority government. The Quebec Liberals won Monday’s provincial election with a majority government is a devastating blow to the sovereignty movement. With most polls reporting, the Liberals had won some 70 of the 125 seats up for grabs, compared with 30 for the PQ and about 20 for the third-placed Coalition for Quebec’s Future.  Parti Québécois leader Pauline Marois, after leading her party to a crushing defeat and losing her own seat in Roberval, announced late Monday that she was resigning her post.

“To avoid a repeat of 2007, the PQ launched its Charter of Values proposal. It was a bid to reclaim the conservative francophone electorate outside Montreal.For a while last year, the charter put Mr. Couillard in an awkward spot, as the Liberal leader was unable to unite his caucus and struggled to define a clear position. However, the charter appears now to have backfired on the PQ. The PQ’s use of the charter might have been a case of dabbling in wedge politics in the worst possible way. Québec solidaire spokesperson Françoise David was re-elected in the riding of Gouin, defeating controversial PQ candidate Louise Mailloux, who had been accused of being anti-Semitic because of her belief that kosher and halal certifications were hidden religious taxes. ” 2014 Quebec election

Is it still important that Philippe Couillard’s seems to be BFFs with Arthur Porter, the disgraced McGill University Health Centre director, who is currently sitting in a Panamanian prison in connection to an alleged $22.5-million kickback scheme at the MUHC?

the last 50 years Quebec is falsely soft on white collared crimminals

.
Follow 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. The Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the unrepentant guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest. The Quebec governments, politicians, police, administrators certainly are still too soft on dealing with crimes, inadequacies BUT so is the federal government. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/09/23/thenonconformer/
.
THE POLICE, RCMP, MINISTERS, CIVIL AND PUBLIC SERVANTS, GOVERNMENT CONSULTANTS THESE DAYS, IMMIGRANT CONSULTANTS TOO  IT SEEMS , SEEM TO BE ANOTHER WORD FOR ABUSERS, THIEVES, LIARS CROOKS. SO WE ALL NEED TO DEAL WITH IT MORE EFFECTIVELY NOW TOO.
.
While Scandals and corruption are nothing new in politics and elsewhere too and whether it be the MPs…MLAs or Senators at all levels of government or another crook.  The political past and present times of even the politicians  are not only  rampant and full of scandals and corruptions that are too numerous to even begin to list but they are still very clearly evidence of the really bad managements by the political leaders. Even this recent wave of scandal and corruption all across the country at all levels of government is  CONTINUAL signal for us the citizens to seriously  weigh  in the matter and demand not only more safe guards such as mandatory police clearances prior to anyone being allowed to run for office but we need to see these guilty persons punished. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty persons, with jail time, serves everyone’s   best interest even the guilty offender.  Mandatory legal actions should  be made into enforced  laws against all bad civil and public servants, politicians, crooks  that  would allow further criminal proceedings against any who are involved in taxpayer’s money abuses scandal and corruption. The time for this change even  in political governing  is in order. Not only because of our good welfare ….. but rather because of these much too many crooks, abusers.. And once elected……. periodical checks are required, even recalls on all politicians, senators too  to insure that these politicians have not next  not falling to the weigh side while in office  and they should not be treated be treated any better or differently over  anyone else in life who does wrong, evil, crimes. Obviously too many of our politicians, civil and public servants as evidenced from their past and current behavior and conduct really are no better then anybody else, are unsuited thus for their jobs and should be removed ASAP.it’s time the RCMP looked at the questionable spending practices – their own and the others
.
At least I as an experienced, honest,  mature person  I am very consistent the last 3 decades now too.  I am  a normal, typical  Canadian who really dislikes ALL OF THE crooked, bad politicians, BAD  civil and public servants, bad cops, bad pastors, bad lawyers, bad professionals,  bad Canadian corporations and their related bad managers and yes I seriously do try to do  something good about it.
.
Look the citizens are busy working, even paying their taxes and they have elected Ministers to look after them and all the issues instead.. It amazes me thus next that now for years and years    why does it takes so long for them and our civil and public servants  to  even deal with anything I have written now too..
.
Now for years  years I  have been writing to all of you in detail about the pensions fraud, tax evasions being carried out by New Immigrants who never have officially worked in Canada, get nice Canadian Pensions, work under the table only one, note only one of the about 24 guilty persons has even  been dealt with to date.
.
None of the abuse of the taxpayers money is ever acceptable and any major abuse should not be only grounds for one’s dismissal from one’s job but it should also be a criminal, jailing offence always too…. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/07/they-cannot-claim-ignorance-about-the-perversities/
.
Now today a useless Quebec civil servants phoned me and he  is going to confirm to me by letter that the results of their tax evasions  investigations, if any that they will never be disclosed..
.
Firstly so no  one can know how uses, pretentious the civil servants actually are in reality.
.
Secondly the Quebec Government is falsely worried about the criminal’s privacy, sensitivity to their crimes being exposed publically
.
and this is unacceptable as you know I  am going to keep writing to all until I do  see visible results..
.
People in leadership office do have to face higher penalties as an example now too and all criminals as well.
.

UNPROSECUTED BAD CRIMMINALS ABOUND IN QUEBEC  CAUSE CLEARLY OUR BAD LEADERS, ADMINSTRATORS THEY DO NOT WANT TO PROSECUTE THEIR BAD ASSOCIATES. Ongoing Montreal Corruptions while the Police , RCMP and the Federal, Quebec Governments did nothing about it.. Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves very ones best interest… too often still missing in the PROFESSIONAL BODIES, EVEN IN THE RCMP, police   forces, churches, ALL GOVERNMENTS  as well it seems too. . HOUSE CLEANING IS STILL VERY MUCH IN ORDER  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/07/a-serious-warning-for-quebecs-premier-jean-charest-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 behaviour,  conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours too, 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.
.
Public exposure of the guilty serves everyone’s best interest, the criminals now included.. best start.
.
Which reminds me I have even as recently met many non Canadians persons who never officially worked in Canada, have never contributed to obtain legitimate benefits, who also get subsidized housing rental units in Quebec, they also get Supplemental pensions benefits, and do even own nice cars, plus they regularly also travel abroad to manage their undeclared incomes, properties there now too.. How come??
.
.
DON’T BE STUPID AND BELIEVE ALL THE LYING SPINS AS TO WHY IT TAKES SO LONG TO INVESTIGATE THE BAD COPS or bad professionals, bad civil and public servants.. I have had many experiences in laying simple complaints against bad cops, bad professionals, bad civil and public servants  that never got anywhere cause the investigators were clearly pretenders.. in Contrast the investigations of all citizens clearly would not take so long.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/11/04/cnadian-governments-ignorance/
.
while major rampant corruption was being carried out next to the Justice center, police station all  unstopped and unchecked, the foxes in the Montreal City Hall were continuing to steal money from the taxpayers and City Hall executives, personnel falsely went along with it?  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/10/05/the-quebec-liberals-and-city-of-montreal-now-had-the-police-looking-in-the-wrong-place-too/
.

Now tell us all how many of these Montreal crooks will face actual jail time and how long now as well?  and how many of them were found guilty of tax evasions now too? Not even a handful? http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/09/29/i-wrote-years-ago-that-anyone-can-and-should-be-held-accountiable-for-their-abuse-of-ou-tax-dollars-anywhere-in-canada-too/

.
The PRETENTIOUS TOO OFTEN Police really cannot CATCH  the criminals so they go after the car speeders instead.. 
.
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/
.
Decades and decades later the police are still  even covering up for their own again and again but the police are not the only bad professionals who do this these days as well, so do the Hospitals, doctors, nurses, civil and public servants, governments…http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/10/12/rcmp-warned/
.
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/
,
For over a decade I wrote and told you all rightfully that the police in Canada are cost ineffective, lazy, immoral, money hungry,  incompetent, mismanaged and  the RCMP included.. because they still do hire crap for policemen from the start.. and so now you pay the price for it.. Garbage in means Garbage out..
,
for decades there was a vast amount of Ongoing Montreal Corruptions while Police, RCMP, Federal, Quebec Governments did nothing about it 
,
GET THE POLICE TO BE BETTER EDUCATED AND HAVE THEM LEARN THE FACTS
,
Undisciplined Doctors, like Policeman, Nurses do now get complacent with daily routine and forget how to act properly. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/12/it-is-a-very-low-proportion-of-medical-personnel-that-are-disciplined/ …

Catching the liars in the act in Quebec’s Medicare, Hospitals

canada-seniors-abuse1

 

 

The Big Lie–

The triage doctor says now do not  worry we will not let your old mother starve to death, or not give her water to drink, we will take good care of her and help to make her better…  TRANSLATION – the nurse next says if your mother  does not want to eat or drink she will die likely within  5 days, cause we will not force feed her, we are not allowed to do so..

The next big lie

WE HAVE AN EXCELLENT PALLIATIVE CARE UNIT FOR SICK SENIORS  AND WE WOULD LIKE TO TAKE REALLY  GOOD CARE OF YOUR MOTHER..

TRANSLATION.. IT IS NOT FREE, FREE MEDICARE WILL NOW NOT COVER IT,  RATHER  SHE NOW HAS  TO PAY FOR IT.. SO TELL US HOW MUCH MONEY DOES SHE NOW HAVE.. WHO ADMINSTRATES HER ESTATE?

Private (Residents admitted on or after July 1, 2013 $77.64 $2,361.55
In Quebec Daily Monthly
Standard Room $35.61 $1,083.00
Semi-Private Room $47.87 $1,456.00
Private Room

 It is still a criminal act now for any doctor, nurse, hospital  administrators, medical supervisor not to provide medical care to any seniors. How many have been prosecuted for this in the last year?

The Unseen elephant in the room.. what to do with the elderly?

canada-seniors-abuse1 
Financially subsidising a relative who looks after a parent is a good idea, less costly too over an old age home.
.
At the present time in the province of Quebec even there is room for one in eight seniors that need to be placed in an old age homes, seniors who can no longer look after themselves and their family refuses to do so ..
.
On top of that there is not enough existing staff to look after the seniors in the old age homes.. Doctors and Nurses included.. Seniors tend to be more ill, sicker, need more nursing care, more distribution of  pills, more looking after, more bed linen changing too,  and a ratio of one nurse to 40 senior patients is totally inadequate.. never mind if they have seriously ill patients.. and forget any care during the night even..
.
So what is the government best proposed solution on this matter.. Euthanasia, kill them.. especially if no family members object and no family members visit them for two weeks.. you just stop feeding them and stop giving them any water and they will be dead within 5 days..
.
MONTREAL — Seniors who need health care but do not want to be institutionalized will soon have the means to be looked after at home, Quebec Health Minister Réjean Hébert said But it is not proven to work yet even.. Critics say the bill opens the door to private-for-profit companies rather than through the public network..   http://www.newswire.ca/en/story/1277885/quebec-s-self-insurance-approach-to-home-support-expands-options-for-seniors
.
Quebec has one of the worst Hospital and medical  services and it neglects seniors too..  Dorval old age home death deemed murder..The coroner’s office conducted an investigation into the man’s death following an incident at the Maison Herron, at 2400 Herron, Dorval Quebec http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/01/24/this-has-been-going-on-wrongfully-for-ages-unchecked-still/

Quebec woman beaten to death by seniors’ home workers.  LONGUEUIL, Que. – Police have launched an investigation and seized surveillance footage after a woman died at a seniors’ home south of Montreal. A source told QMI Agency that the footage shows two staff members beating a woman. “In the video, there are two nurses who are beating a resident at length,” the anonymous source said. “The family had hidden cameras in their mother’s room.”  http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Crime/2013/12/03/21312316.html

Two Montreal-area caregivers accused of mistreating elderly patient Two Quebec caregivers face criminal charges after an elderly woman living in a South Shore long-term health-care centre was allegedly abused and given a noxious substance. … Workers at long-term care facility allegedly illegally administered medication to patient. Immacula Eugène, 51, and Marie-Margaret Pétimé, 46, were each arraigned in Longueuil on Tuesday on two charges of drug trafficking, two of conspiracy and two of administering a noxious substance. Eugène was also charged with armed assault. The alleged crimes took place last July. The 87-year-old victim died two months later but it was only on Nov. 21 that police received a complaint from someone close to her.

PQ’s proposed Charter of Quebec Value

 

 

So you think that the Jews are nice people and they can do what they want, but the Quebecers who oppose religious symbols are the bad people? Video of Jews attacking Christian Women for wearing a cross

 A pair of suicide bombers blew themselves up outside a 130-year-old church in Pakistan after Sunday Mass, killing at least 81 people in the deadliest attack on Christians in the predominantly Muslim South Asian country.  http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/09/22/us-pakistan-blast-idUSBRE98L02K20130922 

.

The attack on the All Saints Church in the city of Peshawar, which also wounded over 140 people, occurred as worshippers were leaving after services to get a free meal of rice offered on the front lawn. A wing of the Pakistani Taliban quickly claimed responsibility for the bombing, Angry Christians   demanded government protection for the members of the Christian minority. Christians are a minority in Pakistan, where roughly 96 per cent of the country’s 180 million people is Muslim. The rest belong to other religions, including Christianity. Christians have often been attacked by Sunni Muslim militants, who view them as enemies of Islam because of their faith. Christians are also in a precarious position in Pakistan. While many Pakistanis condemned the Sunday bombings, Christians have often faced discrimination across the country. They often find it difficult to get access to education or better jobs and are known for having to contend with menial labour such as garbage collecting or street cleaning. . http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/angry-pakistani-christians-protest-church-attack-as-death-toll-rises-to-81/article14460407/

.

Now the majority of Canadians view non-Christian religions with uncertainty and dislike.  What’s more surprising is that Canadians’ opinions of religions like Islam, Sikhism, and Hinduism have actually worsened since the last time Angus Reid conducted this survey in 2009. ‘s interesting to compare these numbers to similar polls conducted in the United States. In 2010, CBS Polling found that 53 per cent of Americans had an unfavourable view of Islam. A 2009 Gallup survey indicated that 35 per cent of Americans had an unfavourable opinion of Buddhism while 56 per cent were uncertain of Judaism.

Religious populations in Canada (Source: Statistics Canada):

Christian: 22,102,745

No religious affiliation: 7,850,605

Islam/Muslim: 1,053,945

Hindu: 497,960

Sikh: 454,965

Buddhist: 366,830

Jewish  329,500 ( Most Jews do not disclose they are Jews)

Quebec divided along linguistic lines, poll shows-Overall, 46 per cent of Quebecers said they favour the values charter, up from 43 per cent in September; 41 per cent oppose it, compared with 42 per cent who were against it in September. http://www.montrealgazette.com/life/Quebec+divided+along+linguistic+lines+poll+shows/9039460/story.html

“We are against multiculturalism,”Most Canadians and Quebecers are still  blaming the heathen multiculturalism of the Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus, Jews for the continual social unrest, and bombs, as  even the  news daily indicates, confirms and thus they want not any affiliations with any of these groups now too.70 percent of Quebecers would not allow their sons or daughters to marry a Jew or a Muslim.
.
 Our women were molested. People were cut into pieces.”The people of the twin villages of Kutbi and Kutba are among more than 40,000 Muslims forced from their homes in some of the worst Hindu-Muslim violence in western Uttar Pradesh for decades. A smaller number of Hindus have also fled and at least 48 people have died

 Powerful explosions sent thick smoke billowing from the Nairobi mall where militants from Somalia’s al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab group threatened to kill hostages on the third day of a raid in which at least 59 non Muslims have already died.. Muslim al Shabaab,  has demanded Kenya pull its troops out of neighboring Somalia, warned they would kill hostages if Kenyan security forces, who are being assisted by Western and Israeli experts, tried to storm their positions: . http://ca.reuters.com/article/topNews/idCABRE98K03V20130923 .

India deployed hundreds of police and army troops to Uttar Pradesh in northern India on Monday, after weekend confrontations between Hindus and Muslims killed at least 28 people and gravely injured many more, according to the police.   http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/10/world/asia/india-deploys-security-forces-in-uttar-pradesh.html

A standoff between the Filipino government troops and Muslim rebels from the Moro National Liberation Front on the southern island of Mindanao has left at least eight dead, 200 civilians trapped and thousands displaced  .  http://www.euronews.com/nocomment/2013/09/11/philippines-battle-between-soldiers-and-muslim-rebels-/

Kenya terrorist attack started after gunmen told Muslims to leave upscale mall: witness NAIROBI, Kenya — Gunmen threw grenades and opened fire Saturday killing at least 30 people in an attack targeting non-Muslims at an upscale mall in Kenya’s capital that was hosting a children’s day event, a Red Cross official and witnesses said. http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/09/21/kenya-terrorist-attack-started-after-gunmen-told-muslims-leave-upscale-mall-witness/
.
Evidently too many Islamists even now are  using falsely God and Islam to justify their murderous rampage they must be widely condemned by all Muslims around the world but that is not the case…  Not enough is even  being done in Islamic countries to protect their Christian minorities and the other targets of these Islamic murderers,  killers.
.
In exercising his fundamental freedoms and rights, a person shall maintain a proper regard for democratic values, public order,  safety and the general well-being, preferences, of the citizens of Québec.
.
Particularly since Quebec  was a clearly Christian Catholic nation from it’s beginning.
.
The majority of   Quebecers as the polls show, they do support the proposed Parti Québécois ban on such religious symbols as the Muslim hijab,  Jewish kippa, and the Sikh’s turbans and knifes, Kirpans  most anywhere .
.
The issue of “reasonable accommodations” has long been a hot-button topic in Canada, but particularly in Quebec.
.
While the Liberals officially proclaimed multiculturalism as a national policy since the early 1970s it does not mean the rest of Canada now has.  
.
It is undeniable  Canada is a professing Christian nation so it would be foolish, however, to think that Canada officially supports heathen multiculturalism, or that the other nine provinces and three territories have seriously moved past skirmishes over freedom of religion, which is enshrined in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
.
When it comes to the Quebec proposal, at least 42 per cent of Canadians overall said they were in favor of it, according to a recent poll. 
.
Most Canadians, Quebecers do not insist that religious differences ought to be accommodated and even welcomed in Canada, never mind in public life . 
.
There is no doubt that Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Jews are now even terrified about the  proposed revisions to the Quebec Charter of human rights and freedoms  and the lack of multiculturalism support  in Quebec. This handwriting on the wall is frightening to them as History repeats itself.  But if they do not like it let them go back to their old countries where they came from.   
.
Inflammatory Remarks like Quebec charter of values divisive, discriminatory and unlikely to withstand legal challenges, would not likely withstand a constitutional challenge still  will do nothing to change the attitudes still of most Canadian’s or the Quebecer’s towards the heathen multiculturalism.
.
”Parti Québécois government seems to be giving up on its language bill at the same time that it is proposing a charter of Quebec values.” BECAUSE ONLY 30 PERCENT  QUEBECERS  SUPPORT  THE LANGUAGE  BILL BUT  70  PERCENT QUEBECERS SUPPORT THE CHARTER, AND 70 PERCENT OF QUEBECERS WILL NOT ALLOW THEIR SONS OR DAUGHTERS TO MARRY A MUSLIM OR A JEW BECAUSE THEY ARE BASICALLY STILL CATHOLIC.. SO IT IS NOT A SURPRISE. AND IT IS THE UNGODLY LIEBERALS RATHER WHO ARE OUT OF TOUCH WITH QUEBECERS…..
.

Here are five things the charter would do,  .

  1. Bar public sector employees — including everyone from civil servants to teachers, provincial court judges, daycare workers, police, health-care personnel, municipal employees and university staff — from wearing a hijab, turban, kippa, large visible crucifix or other “ostentatious” religious symbols while on the job.
  2. Allow five-year opt-outs from the ban for certain organizations, but not daycare workers or elementary school teachers.
  3. Require that those receiving or providing government services uncover their faces.
  4. Exempt elected members of the Quebec legislature from the regulations.
  5. Amend Quebec’s human rights legislation, the Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms, to specify limits on when someone can stake a claim for religious accommodation.
,
While 75% of respondents agreed that immigration made the province “strong,” half of Quebecers disagreed with the concept of multiculturalism, calling for new immigrants in the province to abandon their native custom and dress in an attempt to become “more like Quebecers.” Just less than half of the respondents shared the belief that multiculturalism breeds strife… http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/09/16/about-one-third-of-canadians-want-pqs-proposed-ban-on-religious-garb-extended-to-include-private-sector-poll/
.
World wide Muslims are continually finding themselves these days now forced to leave the intelligent countries, Europe, Russia, Canada, USA, etc where theynmow do lose their good jobs, cannot find work and have to go back to their own Muslims world where they likely will be killed, jailed etc..No fun being a Muslim for sure.. “Muslim Badia Senouci told: ‘change your religion’.. Woman alleges she and family were verbally assaulted and spit on while shopping” Senouci was shopping two weeks ago in Ste-Foy with her son and husband when an older woman approached them and began insulting their religion. The woman insisted that Senouci remove her hijab, and then told her the government would soon be forcing her to remove her headscarf anyway. Senouci says that when her 18-year-old son Ahmed intervened and asked the woman to stop harassing his mother, she spit in his face. The son pushed the older woman in reaction. She in turn hit Senouci’s son, and then the husband when he acted to separate them, with her bag. Senouci and her family are originally from Algeria 14 years ago.. She says this incident, and another one from earlier in the day where she was insulted while her car stopped at a light, are recent events where she has been a target while living here. The family says the Quebec charter has already radically changed Quebecers. She feels the charter and the controversy it has caused has made it socially acceptable to single out people like her.” Not really Muslims were never welcomed in Canada..
.
“I think people have a hard time understanding how a Jewish doctor wearing a kippa or a hospital worker wearing a turban gets in the way of their work, their responsibilities or dealing with the public,”Jason Kenney MP  
.
Now over a year ago I wrote to Jason Kenney as well , obviously you do not read important letters, saying that I was hospitalized with congestive heart failure at the Montreal , Quebec Notre Dame hospital where I then had witnessed first hand a trouble making veiled Muslim nurse causing unrest by advocating the other Muslims in the hospitals not eat the same food we were offered but for them to demand to  be given their own separate food… this religious fanatic missionary came to our Christian country, Canada to cause trouble and not to settle down in peace obviously.. so what you approve of this?
.
Now the secular, Jewish News media and others falsely believe  thy can now easily change the minds of Quebecers.. really they can change  generations of values that easily? Dream on..
.

Over 1,100 Quebecers were asked a series of questions related to the debate brewing across the province on the subject of religion by SOM Research.

When they were asked whether they would be comfortable if their child’s daycare worker wore a cross, hijab, turban or kippa, 79 per cent of respondents said a cross would be fine.

Meanwhile, only 49 per cent of people said they were comfortable with the hijab, 46 per cent with the turban and 41 per cent with the kippa.

Elsewhere, 90 per cent of Quebecers said they’d be at ease with a doctor wearing a cross, while only 65 per cent of them said they’d be equally at ease with a doctor wearing a kippa.

THEY OFTEN DO STEAL THE DESIGNATED MONIES

stop-thief

The first revelation of all crooked politicians comes from follow the Money trail.. does he or she abuse the tax payer’s money..

The second  revelation of a crooked politician comes from see if his or she are an adulterer.. clearly big  liars…

The third simple  revelation of a crooked politician comes from see if she or him are an alcoholic, drink more than one glass a day..  meaning they are addicted to vice.. 

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING NEW AS I HAVE MENTIONED IT FOR YEARS IN MY WRITINGS..  THAT THEY  HAVE BEEN DOING IT FOR YEARS AT THE FEDERAL, PROVINCIAL AND MUNICIPAL LEVELS.  THEY STEAL THE MONEY… THE DESIGNATED MONEY NEVER REACHES IT’S INTENDED AREA  BUT IS FALSELY DIVERTED ELSEWHERE TOO OFTEN..

 The federal government had already given money to help reduce the  Railway transportation accidents such as the one at   Lac-Mégantic but somehow the monies never made it there.. they were stolen..

The federal government issued money to improve our armed forces too but somehow all of the designated the monies never made it there.. they were stolen..

The federal government issued money to help to reduce the negative effect of flooding in Alberta but somehow all of the designated the monies never made it there they were falsely and  mostly spent elsewhere.. they were stolen..

Even the RCMP does the same bad things now.. even the unnecessary out of town trips

.

The RCMP repeatedly stonewalled media inquiries for months about the price tag for destroying the federal long gun registry data, even though the federal police force had a full cost estimate in hand. The Mounties had a detailed breakdown more than a year ago that showed fulfilling the long time Conservative promise to kill the registry would cost about $1 million. A PowerPoint presentation laying out the plan and its costs was provided to The Canadian Press under an Access to Information request following an 11-month delay. In the meantime, RCMP officials refused to answer direct questions about whether any such costing had been done, saying only that any spending related to the registry’s destruction would come out of the force’s own budget. “It’s sad when it comes from an agency like the RCMP that is there to uphold the law. They’re supposed to be leaders in this society on how to behave well,”    RCMP’s handling of the file calls into question whether its communications can be trusted on bigger issues – including the current Senate investigation of improper expense claims     http://www.ottawacitizen.com/news/RCMP+cost+estimate+registry+data+destruction/8921176/story.html

WHAT HAPPNED IN Lac-Mégantic, Quebec and in the flooding of Alberta both were even falsely allowed to occur by bad  persons.. and the police should put the bad people in jail..

where

And so it goes on and on.. and the citizens are the ones who mainly suffer as a direct result..

 .

Having lived for years in Alberta for me to say I do not trust the whole Alberta Governments is still a really great understatement.
.
A bad image problem  is not the only main problem for Alberta even in June 2013  Canmore, Cochrane; Bragg Creek and Redwood towns were one of the first to be hit with flooding as well  and now yes  Canmore  the home of the perverse Canmore Traffic court, and RCMP  traffic ticket revenue generation as I have already written recently,  the  severe flooding moved on to Calgary and next to many cities along the   rivers of southern Alberta.

BC Man Creates Speed Kills Your Pocketbook Video, Goes Viral

 Sep 17, 2013  Chris Thompson is like the majority of us who think speed limits in many areas are too low to be safely adhered to. The only difference between us and Chris is he’s doing something about it. Earlier this month, Thompson posted “Speed Kills Your Pocketbook” on YouTube where it has already garnered over a million views and is grabbing the attention of MLAs in British Columbia. The video focuses on one road in particular, but does mentioned others in BC and talks about speeding in general. It also takes ICBC (British Columbia’s public insurer), the police, and media to task for using speed as an excuse to boost venues and provide sensational news items. The major point the video makes is it isn’t those who go above the posted speed limit in a safe manner that cause crashes. Instead, it is those who go way above the limit while driving recklessly, or those who drive at the posted limit when the flow of traffic is much higher. “Everybody votes with their right foot every time they drive, and it’s pretty obvious that virtually nobody is obeying the unrealistic speed limits we have on some of our better highways,” “Virtually nobody has said they don’t like [the video],”   http://globalnews.ca/news/839872/speed-kills-your-pocketbook-video-goes-viral/

.
 The RCMP now have no time to get money from speeding tickets but instead they have to help instead the flooded citizens.. that must hurt their false pride and economic income. 
 .
Speeding is all about money tickets and not public safety .
.
WHILE SPEEDING IS A  GOOD MONEY GENERATOR  STILL IT  IS NOT THE  MAJOR CRIME IN  ALBERTA, BUT THEIR LYING, AND STEALING IS.
.
Now the  safety Nazis certainly won’t agree with this statement, but in my opinion SPEEDING IS NOT A CRIME NOR DOES IT KILL  PEOPLE AS MUCH AS OTHER ACTS NOW DO.. SUCH AS MEDICAL ERRORS, ALCOHOLIC AND DRUG CONSUMPTION, ROAD RAGE, DIVORCE ETC. , 
.
And ”Please Note I am talking ONLY about speeding on highways and interstates, not in congested urban areas, on residential streets or in school zones.  Idiots who drive too fast for traffic, weather or visibility conditions, weave in and out of traffic, don’t signal when changing lanes or turning, cut off other drivers, blow through red lights and stop signs, pass on a yellow lines, and generally drive as if they were competing in a NASCAR race ought to be ticketed  They STILL DO SAY  say that “Speed Kills!”  No, speed does NOT kill.  Drunk drivers kill.  Idiots kill.  Road Rage kills. Bad weather kills.  Stupid driving blunders kill.  Tire blowouts and rollovers kill.  Exhausted truck drivers kill.  People falling asleep at the wheel kill.  But driving 10, 15 or even 20 mph over the posted speed limit does NOT kill anybody.  It never has.  It never will.  I think I should have the right to determine how fast I can drive my car on the open highway depending on weather, visibility and traffic conditions, and the capabilities of my vehicle.  I don’t need some bureaucrat telling me how fast or slow I should drive.  In the meantime, I’ll keep my radar detector on to reduce my risk of getting a speeding ticket” http://www.aa1car.com/blog/speeding_not_a_crime.htm

.
July 2013.. Federal Official Opposition Leader Thomas Mulcair himself after visiting Calgary, Alberta said he doesn’t think the rest of Canada has a full understanding of the devastation caused by floods that hit southern Alberta  now. “  it’s easy to forget that there are months, and months, and months of cleanup. And then years and years and years of rebuilding”  Many of the Albertans,  First Nations and even low-income Albertans, including seniors, who were pushed out of their homes NNED TO be put back into proper housing  EVEN before the  Alberta winter hits. Who will help to do all of this still? Almost no one? Donations received  are just a drop in the bucket.
.
 Up to 150,000 people without a Home to live in or a home that is flood damaged and  NO one will pay for the repairs to it.. Major roads, even bridges damaged, the C-train  put out of action for weeks, accessibility across town, or to downtown extremely difficult, the whole downtown core shut anyway.
.
Infrastructure damage in the Billions of dollars, months or years to repair too.. and No one had ever thought such a devastation  would  ever happen. The Government of Alberta does not have the cash or income to pay for all of this too. . Insurers won’t cover homes hit by overland flood waters.  “There’s no overland flooding coverage in Canada.”  
.
Now THE  Flood emergency HAS BEEN  lifted in Cochrane; Bragg Creek and Redwood residents permitted to return.. 
.
DUE TOO THE HEAVY ABNORMAL  RAINFALL IN ALBERTA, THE FLOODING OF THE RIVER BASINS THAT STARTED IN BANFF, NEXT IN EXSHAW, CANMORE,   WELL I DO UNDERSTAND THE DEVASTATION AND IT’S FULL CONSEQUENCES  AS I HAD  WORKED EVEN AS A REALTOR THERE..    
.
 EVEN CALGARY ALBERTA DOES NOT HAVE THE MONEY OR  THE SKILLED MANPOWER TO REBUILD FROM IT’S UNEXPECTED DEVASTATION THAT OCCURRED INSTANTLY AND WILL TAKE DECADES TO RESTORE.
.
Bowness park Where many of the seniors, poor people live, their homes were flooded too.  Flooding impact in downtown Calgary is so dire that some parts of the core may take weeks or months to return to normalcy, Mayor Naheed Nenshi said  on June 20,2013 . Calgary Alberta Downtown business to be shut down at least a month due to floods, power outages    In Alberta  now price gouging is going on . Products such as water and ice  etc ., are being sold at jacked up values. “Under the emergency management act in province of Alberta, price gouging or price fixing above normal levels during a state of local emergency is illegal and it would take some cooperation between ourselves and police but individuals could be prosecuted for that,”  and “the legislation states the cost of goods before a local state of emergency should be the cost of goods during the local state of emergency.” Fire Chief and head of the Calgary Emergency Management Association Bruce Burrell says there are laws against it which protect the consumer. But it is all still  just cheap talk as  no one has been arrested for it so far. Such is the bad  reality.
.
Alberta’s cities rarely spend federal cash on disaster prevention.  
 .
While receiving hundreds of millions of federal dollars for infrastructure since 2006, southern Alberta’s flood-battered communities focused on building highways, leisure centres and event facilities rather than flood protection, which Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi acknowledges is not considered a “hugely sexy thing.” 
.
Since 2006, the list of projects Calgary sought, and received, Infrastructure Canada money for includes $138-million for roads, $63-million for public transit, $25-million for the home of the Calgary Stampede and another $25-million for a National Music Centre. Calgary’s 17 listed projects total about $366-million in federal cash.
.
But none appear to have dealt with disaster mitigation, which an Infrastructure Canada spokesperson said “has been an eligible category for funding under several Building Canada and Economic Action Plan initiatives.” Municipalities have little financial incentive to pick disaster mitigation projects – when disaster does strike, the province foots the initial bill, with federal taxpayers ultimately picking up the vast majority of costs. In the case of High River, Alta., municipal officials ultimately stepped aside altogether, allowing the province to lead the recovery plan as well as pay for it.   http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/ottawa-left-on-the-hook-as-funding-not-often-spent-on-disaster-prevention/article13094979/  
.
BY  THE WAY THE BROKE GOVERNMENT IN ALBERTA IS STILL MOSTLY ALL UNWISE TALK AND VERY LITTLE HELP TO THE FLOODED CITIZENS, FLOODED HOME OWNERS
.
The Crappy Alberta’s Minister of Municipal Affairs, Doug Griffiths, held a news conference   to unveil his unrealistic new policies to mitigate future floods in the province. And the already broke, poor,  Premier Alison Redford promised a harder line on building in flood-prone areas in the aftermath of this summer’s unprecedented flooding, while lyingly pledging that the Alberta provincial government will be there to help with all the costs for the devastated community of High River in the long run.
.
Rebuild or relocate? Devastating Alberta floods have some wondering if it’s time to move communities off flood plains.
.
the province is struggling to balance the probability of future flooding with the cost of repair, replacement and mitigation.
.
There are no easy answers.” “ I think you would have to move half the city.” “ It’s an extreme position, but as the flood waters leave billions of dollars in damage in their wake, some Albertans are increasingly questioning how — and even whether — to rebuild their homes and businesses. Some of the critics,  object to funnelling thousands of taxpayer dollars to replace the homes that line Calgary’s Bow and Elbow Rivers.
.
The idea of millionaires receiving government aid money rankles, even though damage to these  elite properties represents a small minority; last month’s unprecedented flood washed out whole neighbourhoods — including high rises and middle-class and working-class homes.
.
Additionally, half the city’s dense downtown core was inundated, flooding office towers, roads, electrical substations and even the Stampede grounds. The cost of relocating half the core and almost all of the neighbouring heritage communities would be staggering. 
.
There is no overland flooding insurance in Canada, although some companies have agreed to cover the cost of sewer back up. Still, that will leave thousands of homeowners paying out of their own pocket, or relying on the provinces disaster recovery program” Money that both federal and Albertan government do not even have  when you consider about 100,000 homes to be relocated at least a minimum half a million dollars each..   http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/07/14/rebuild-or-relocate-devastating-alberta-floods-have-some-wondering-if-its-time-to-move-communities-off-floodplains/
.
DREAM ON!  THERE IS VERY LITTLE OR NO SERVICED  LAND AVAILABLE AND IT FIRSTLY WOULD TAKE YEARS TO GET  MORE OF THE  NEW LAND SERVICED AS WELL…
.
NOW ABOUT THE FLOODED BASEMENTS, MOST OF THEM WOULD REQUIRE NEW HEATING FURNACES INSTALLED before winter too WHICH ARE NOT READILY AVAILABLE NOW TOO NOR THE PEOPLE TO INSTALL THEM..
.
THEN THERE IS THE COSTLY SEWER BACK UP PREVENTION WATER VALVE INSTALLATIONS, COST IS ABOUT 20,000  DOLLARS TOO FOR EACH HOME.. I AM SURE THEY ALL THE FLOODED HOME OWNERS  CAN EASILY AFFORD THAT COSTS TOO..
.
July 2013..Many of those affected by the recent flooding in Canmore,  Calgary, Exshaw, high River, etc,  are now looking back on the month that was and are starting to rebuild.
.
Flood info sessions planned. Provincial experts on flood mapping and the disaster recovery program will be available in communities affected by the floods at upcoming public information sessions.
The province is mandating that homeowners who live in the floodway can choose to rebuild and repair, or leave. If they choose to relocate, the province will assist them — in some cases, that means purchasing land.
.
Residents living in flood fringe areas must flood-proof their homes if they want to eligible for flood relief in the future. The first information session was held in High River tonight. There are sessions planned in Medicine Hat, Calgary, Canmore, Lethbridge, Bragg Creek and Turner Valley.
.
Many Albertans still do say they’re having a tough time finding contractors and equipment and others are still waiting for word on compensation from insurance companies and the province. The provincial government announced its long-term flood recovery and said “We know this work will take years — not weeks or months — and we will be there to support communities in their renewal efforts over the long term,” said Premier Alison Redford in a release. Prepared by the Flood Recovery Task Force, the plan looks to focus on four areas: financial support, repairing infrastructure, mitigating long-term environmental impacts and nurturing economic growth through reinvestments.

What you should know about C. diff, the shit disease

.
MY MOTHER RECENTLY WENT TO THE HOSPITAL FOR ONE PROBLEM  AND CAME HOME WITH THE SHIT DISEASE FROM THE MONTREAL ST LUC HOSPITAL..
.
Too many Canadian professionals, workers next  become too lax when they do think they have attained some kind of job security and fail to do their duties fully too, towards all others.   http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/11/hospital-deaths-account-for-half-of-deaths-annually/
.  
IMAGINE THIS TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE STILL DYING FROM THIS DECADES OLD  C. diff, the shit disease  where  contracting the superbug C. difficile in the hospital often is fatal or at least increases a patient’s stay by an average of six days, putting serious financial strain on Canada’s health-care system. A study by Quebec’s public health research institute (INSPQ) shows deaths related to clostridium difficile infections in 2010-2011 were the highest they’ve been since 2004. A total of 619 Quebecers died from C. difficile over the course of 2010 and 2011. And one death is always still one too many here too.. C. difficile is most often acquired in hospital, and  the disease is highly contagious.
.
We do not live in the dark ages for shit Disease is caused by poor cleanliness, poor hygiene, poor sanitation at the Hospital, who have been hiring NOT ONLY LAZY BAD employees but they have FOR AN UNACCEPTABLE DECADE NOW TOO   MANY THEY been cutting back on their MAINTENANCE COSTS and this has been unacceptable CLEARLY LEADING TO their criminal murderous acts OF THE CITIZENS.
.
Do take ALL OF THE HEALTH MINISTERS KNOW BEFORE A FIRING SQUAD AND SHOOT THEM, for THAT WOULD BE A RIGHT START TOO. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/09/01/shit-disease-c-difficile-or-what-ever/

.
AND FOR DECADES EVEN IN QUEBEC, CANADA, AND NO ONE IS JAILED FOR IT.. NOT EVEN THE HEALTH MINISTERS.
.
Like most C. diff patients symptoms began with severe diarrhea as the  intestines were shutting down and the colon becomes swollen that it pushed pressure up to the lungs, making it difficult to breathe.  In serious cases a  fecal transplant can often be used successfully here..   
.
“ A USA TODAY investigation shows that is far more prevalent than federal reports suggest. The bacteria is linked in hospital records to more than 30,000 deaths a year in the United States— about twice federal estimates and rivaling the 32,000 killed in traffic accidents.  It strikes about a half-million Americans a year. Yet despite a decade of rising C. diff rates, health care providers and the government agencies that oversee them have been slow to adopt proven strategies to reduce the infections, resulting in tens of thousands of deaths and illnesses that could have been prevented, the investigation shows. Far more could be done to stop the deadly bacteria C. diff .  “I wish doctors were more forthcoming. … You don’t learn about it until after it’s too late.” The big challenge in curbing C. diff is getting everyone  to work together — from health care administrators and the government regulators  to doctors and nurses and the housekeeping staffs . “
.
“Hospital billing data collected by the US federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality shows that more than 9% of C. diff-related hospitalizations end in death — nearly five times the rate for other hospital stays.   Hundreds of Thousands more of unnumbered patients are treated in nursing homes, clinics and doctors’ offices.”  http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/health/story/2012-08-16/deadly-bacteria-hospital-infections/57079514/1
.
C. diff is “a big concern. And  C. diff infection can also now strike individuals at any age. The use of certain antibiotics can further  allow C. diff to thrive  Most medical staff and even citizens do not yet know,m realize how serious the diseases, prblme is cause they have not even been told about any of it.  Too many People are thus now dying needlessly. Deaths and illnesses are much higher than those disclosed also  since the bad doctors on their death certificates,  often don’t list the infection when patients die from complications, C. diff ,   kidney failure. It’s unacceptable and outrageous that C. diff hovers at all-time highs and the barrier is often cover ups and hospital costs plus  unacceptable medical practices. The news media and studies show that emergency rooms, patients’ rooms, washrooms, operating rooms too still often aren’t cleaned sufficiently.
.
 In 2009, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services launched an “action plan” to reduce six high-priority Hopsital, seniors, old age homes infections, including C. diff. Infection rates for five of those have dropped significantly, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA but not  C. diff infections
.
In 2003 the  US Environmental Protection Agency, which regulates hospital disinfectants, learned that none of its approved products actually killed C. diff spores — though many claimed on their labels that they were effective against the bacteria so  the agency ordered manufacturers to remove the claims and began to identify new disinfectants that work.
.
Steps have already been taken in Canada in major hospitals to try to reduce C. Diff infections. Much more needs still to be done ti insure better quality medical care and patient safety. Nurses, doctors,  pharmacists , therapists that provide hands-on treatment, cleaning technicians  still all do  need to be out there and do much more to keep all rooms clean and  hospital infection rates down  The government should require all hospitals to mandatorily and not optional  report all C. diff cases.
.
They must also meet targets for reducing C. diff.. in hospitals, nursing homes and other care settings, 30% reduction per year, and there must  be a real penalty under Medicare and Medicaid for facilities that have allowed high C. diff rates. All nursing homes  hospitals must publically publicly report their rates of infections, qne include C. diff.
.
Standing in the way to reduce C. Diff infections still  are the false Hospital, old age homes concerns about the costs, staffing and the complexity of creating and implementing new procedures that require interdisciplinary teams to work together as even many homes,  Hospitals have cut housekeeping budgets in recent years, so many hospitals spend too little minutes cleaning all the rooms room. 
.
As hospitals and nursing homes struggle with tight budgets and limited staffing, patient advocates say its critical that the public become more engaged in minimizing infection risks. Not all Hospitals don’t want to tell others,  patients the hospital  might be contaminated,” or to tell  the patients too the steps patients can take to minimize infection risks. Old age homes, Healthcare facilities  often lie, do not disclose the truth cause the “care about their reputation.”
.
Most hospitals still are slow to admit that they have infection related problems because admitting those problems, opens them up to lawsuits, and is admitting guilt prior to going to trial. It’s all about insurance (money) and lawyers. Things which should have nothing to do with keeping us healthy.
.
There is also limited tracking of antibiotics usages. In 2010, about 42% of infection control specialists nationwide said their facility had no antibiotic stewardship program, based on a survey by the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology. Such programs typically track the use of antibiotics to ensure proper use, which can reduce opportunities for infection.
.
The challenge of reducing C. Diff is also now still needed in nursing homes, where antibiotics are prolific, staffing often is too  thin and it’s tougher to isolate patients.
.
“How to attack the problem.There’s no mystery to cutting C. diff rates. The spore-forming bacteria exists throughout the environment: water, soil, human and animal feces. It typically sickens people taking certain stomach medicines or antibiotics, which diminish healthy bacteria in the gut as they attack infections. When levels of healthy bacteria get low, C. diff can take over, producing toxins that cause intense diarrhea, often with grave complications.The germ thrives in settings where antibiotics are in wide use, and its proliferation has accelerated as a new, hyper-virulent strain has emerged over the past decade. C. diff spores spread through fecal contamination: They get on people’s hands, often from bathroom fixtures, and move to other surfaces by touch, from light switches to bed rails to tables and trays. The tough-to-kill spores resist many disinfectants and can survive for months. Once they’re on patients’ hands, it’s a short trip to their mouths — and their intestines.”
.
The challenge is twofold:
 .
Control the use of antibiotics that allow C. diff to flourish,
.
and prevent the bacteria’s spread from infected patients via dirty hands, dirty rooms or dirty equipment.”
.
The British experience “has shown that substantial C. diff reductions are possible,” including changes in room-cleaning procedures, antibiotic controls and testing protocols for patients showing C. diff symptoms. 
.
Many other health care infections have been stemmed by ensuring that certain medical procedures are done properly. That the Catheter-related infections were eliminated by getting doctors to change protocols for installing the devices. Infections linked to surgical incisions and ventilators can be reduced by getting doctors and nurses to alter practices and  more staff are  needed.
.
Many US hospitals also  have confronted those challenges head-on:
.
“•In Cincinnati, The Jewish Hospital-Mercy Health slashed its high C. diff rate by half in less than a year by adopting stricter antibiotic controls and new room-cleaning protocols. The program costs the 209-bed hospital about $10,000 a year.
•In Pittsburgh, the 792-bed UPMC Presbyterian cut C. diff 71% from 2000 to 2006 with new cleaning protocols, better identification and isolation of infected patients, and antibiotic controls.
•In Oak Lawn, Ill., the 695-bed Advocate Christ Medical Center reduced C. diff cases 55% by retraining housekeepers, coordinating care with infection prevention specialists, and adopting new disinfection standards for high-touch areas.”
But if you’re having one case of any health care infections a year, that’s still a problem and all unacceptable.

CLSC

.
The CLSC’s are an integral part of the Quebec  health and social service centres  (CSSSs).
.
They provide Free health and social services on their premises, but also in schools, at work and at home. The Quebec CLSC services for the people within the CLSC’s territory include:
  • routine health and social services (nursing care, blood tests, vaccinations, morning-after contraception, etc.);
  • preventive or medical services (medical consultations with or without an appointment) ;
  • rehabilitation and reintegration services; and
  • public health activities.

 

Sadly not all the CLSC’s are managed the same, as there are some that are very poorly managed and very inadequate still.  That is the same fact with the Hospitals in Montreal too.

.

This CLSC in Rosemount, Montreal has undeniably been the best, they have provided excellent services for my aged mother and many others for many years too
CLSC  DE  ROSEMONT  2909, rue Rachel Est Montréal (QC) H1W0A9

Wera Kambulow (4)
I  had posted here  my views of the Rosemount CLSC   nurses..

Subsequent to this one of the CLSC  nurses in my home had asked me to lobby to get more money for the Nurses.. This is not a normal request and not a rightful   demand by any CLSC nurse.  Let her stay with her job solely. And  it is not the Nurses Job also now  to act as a Doctor, to question what the Doctor has told me personally to do in regard to my own diabetes control or that of myself or of my  mother.. she can contact the doctor herself.. and learn from him..
.
Note Insulin recommendations levels   given by Doctors  given   by needles are not like Pills where you make just tem. Needle based insulin has to be adjusted  by all diabetes patients too according to the persons sugar level and also adjusted  to how the patient   actually eats.. I follow the Doctors specific instructions now and not the Nurses..
.
Please note the same nurse  had often complained to me she is overworked and understaffed.. so what have I do do with that? Maybe she is trying to be a doctor and not a Nurse

Quebec French Hospital CHUM also under review for money abuse

.
The Treasury wants to end an “allowance of attraction” Annual nearly $ 100 000 paid to the Director General of the Hospital of the University of Montreal (CHUM), Christian Paire.  This additional recurring compensation granted by the Board of Directors of the CHUM, was negotiated in 2009, when the CEO came to office. The Treasury now wants to abolish the term of office in June 2013, as told to the La Presse Newspaper.
 
“In June 2009, Treasury Board authorized the Board of CHUM to pay additional recurring remuneration up to $ 101,000 to its CEO,” says Jo-Annie Larocque, Press Secretary of the President of the Treasury Board, Stéphane Bédard.
 
Recently, the Treasury Board has, however, indicated the administration of CHUM they do  not want this allocation   renewed after the agreement in June 2013. This additional compensation varied years since it was included in the total compensation of Mr. Pair, whose ceiling was set at $ 350,000 by the government. In 2011, it reached  $ 294, 100 while it was $ 93,196 this year.
 
Secret salary
 
This is the first time that the veil was  lifted on the wage conditions of Christian Paire. To date, the CHUM has always falsely refused to disclose the content of the contract between the director general, even under the Law on Access to Information.
 
The head of communications at the CHUM, Isabelle Lavigne, has also refused to comment on the compensation of Mr. Pair and allocation of attraction that is paid.
It was finally  thanks to  the Ministry of Health and Social Services, it was possible to learn that the total compensation fixed at $ 350,000, excluding the compensation from third parties.
 
This salary includes a premium of 7% because the Director General shall be available at all times, as well as allocation of school management to academic vocation and an additional remuneration (allocation of attraction) requested by the CHUM.
In the past, the CHUM has already sent to the Ministry of Health for an “additional lump sum”, which was refused.
 
By comparison, the former CEO of CHUM, Dr. Denis Roy, for his part received a fee of $ 189,000 with paid   $56 .700.
 
In Ontario, the salary of CEOs is higher, as the remuneration of doctors and nurses, and it is not uncommon that exceeds $ 350,000.
 
Additional income
 
La Presse has also learned that the Director General of the CHUM, Christian Paire, also received a salary as an annual lump sum from the University of Montreal (UdeM) without having worked there. This additional compensation was paid in 2010 and 2011 and added to the $ 350,000 received from the CHUM .
 
Following an agreement with the University, Mr. Pair was hired as an assistant clinical professor at the end of 2009, confirms spokesman UdeM, Mathieu Filion.
 
A review of the contracts was made in summer 2011. “It was noted that the contract was problematic. There was no provision of work, “says Filion acknowledging that” the case
 
Mr. Pair is quite unique. “
 
A letter was sent to Mr. Pair in November 2011, telling her that the contract was broken. After this mailing, eight hours of work have been completed.
 
According to various sources, this compensation reached $ 80,000 annually. A share of $ 50,000 was paid by the University. The remaining amount of $ 30,000, came from the Fondation du CHUM, which is illegal, according to the Ministry of Health.

The Permanent Anti-Corruption Unit (UPAC) must address the issue of CHUM believes Québec solidaire (QS). The spokesman QS, Françoise David, and the member for Mercier, Amir Khadir, surrendered Monday morning at the offices of the UPAC to file a request to investigate the awarding of contracts for the implementation of the CHUM and its research center.

According to QS, these records contain many elements that raise doubts and justify an inquiry.
During a press conference Monday morning, Françoise David and Amir Khadir noted the lack of competition in the bidding process leading to the award of the contract CHUM formed consortium of Dalkia, Innisfree and OHL and contract research Center (CHUM Research Centre) Access to Health consortium CHUM. Québec solidaire advances that  several companies involved in the tender process have a history of known collusion. Members also questioned the choice of Quebec to opt for a public-private partnership (PPP) for these two projects whose costs have increased from 1.4 to nearly 2.6 billion.

Quebec’s anti-corruption squad Gangsterism charge sends clear message.

One Former mayor of Laval, Gilles Vaillancourt slapped with gangsterism charges, one bad political party disbanded: all on the same day. The party that won Montreal’s last municipal election , the Union Montreal party, which has won every election in the newly merged  post-2001 mega-city was dissolved .

.

Finally Quebec’s anti-corruption squad, UPAC, added a new spin on fin-de-régime Thursday by busting the Former mayor of Laval, Gilles Vaillancourt, and the arrests of 36 Laval business people, former civil servants and political supporters. If convicted, on charges of gangsterism and money-laundering. Vaillancourt and others would receive longer prison sentences . The gangsterism charge alone, designed by legislators for biker gangs and mobsters, distinguishes the latest endeavour to sweep up municipal corruption from every other official probe of that sort of wrongdoing over the last century. Suddenly it sounds like the authorities are serious about ending — rather than merely stalling — the work of necktied-conspirators who’ve run amok in Quebec’s municipal world since at least 1905. It is time these and many other municipal  government related criminals faced real jail time as well as returned the Money they stole from the taxpayer’s .. and when convicted they should also lose their pensions accrued on the Job..  Much more arrests are still need too. http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Gangsterism+charge+sends+clear+message/8363661/story.html

.

The embattled former mayor of Laval, Que., appeared in court this afternoon to face 12 charges, including conspiracy, fraud, influence peddling, breach of trust and gangsterism. Anti-corruption crusader and Coalition Avenir Québec MNA Jacques Duchesneau says this is the first time in Quebec’s history that a politician has faced charges of gangsterism. One of the gangsterism charges Vaillancourt faces carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.  http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/story/2013/05/09/quebec-laval-mayor-gilles-vaillancourt-arrested.html

-

Jacques Duchesneau, the one-time anti-collusion investigator who now is a Coalition Avenir Québec MNA, says some names are missing from the list of 37 people arrested Thursday on charges of gangsterism and fraud. Duchesneau called the arrests, and charges of gangsterism, “a great day for  justice in Quebec,” but “a sad day for democracy.” UPAC has been criticized by opposition politicians because big-name arrests were  slow in coming.

Vision Montreal’s Louise Harel is calling for a restitution fund to oblige firms that bilked Montreal taxpayers of roughly $300 million to give some of it back.  “Montrealers deserve to recoup the money that was stolen from them.”
http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Corruption+Harel+calls+restitution+fund/8362736/story.html

.

so what is the RCMP and the federal government doing about all these vast  corruptions even? Nothing again?

.

and is this rather a diversion…   the Parti Quebecois, suddenly, expresses serious concerns about Quebec corruption inquiry?   The Quebec voters are watching, listening and they really now do  not like the bad  smell coming from the PQ.   Premier Pauline Marois and her deputy are essentially now trying to  tell a judge to “watch her step” when  very damaging real evidence is also now being  presented that shows that the PQ party itself is corrupt. So Premier Pauline Marois is basically falsely now saying, be cautious when it comes to testimonies that  have anything to do with PQ.  Premier Pauline Marois’s comments are POLITICAL interference.  Premier Pauline Marois is attempting to steer the  course of an judicial investigation.  Premier Pauline Marois said NOTHING when Liberal were being  attacked at the Charbonneau Commission, but now that the PQ are being attacked,  it is a different story.  Premier Pauline Marois has shown her bias as to what is being said at  the commission.  Premier Pauline Marois will interfere when her party is being attacked.  This  is not right.  Premier Pauline Marois was the one who stepped out of line by  essentially telling a judge to “watch it”., she here has damaged her reputation and the reputation of the PQ party. ” Typical PQ backtracking.. First they say they won’t interfere and now they are  telling the commission how to proceed. Hmmm wonder why?” “The PQ’s were  pushing for this inquiry when the Liberals were in power…..    Now we have some “dirty laundry’ we want to hide ???  so back off ????  “  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/05/03/it-seems-that-politicians-are-out-of-control-and-control-change-is-necessary-to-protect-us-from-these-people/

Meanwhile A Senate committee report released Thursday recommends that Liberal Senator Mac Harb and Independent Senator Patrick Brazeau repay housing and mileage claims for the past two years, and that their expenses should be monitored for the next year.  The report recommends that Harb must repay $51,000 for housing and mileage claims dating from April 2011, and Brazeau must repay $48,000. As well, Harb’s expense claims will be audited for a seven-year period before 2011.  The report also noted that Conservative Senator Mike Duffy has already repaid money for housing expenses he submitted based on his claim that his primary residence is in P.E.I. The report explained that Duffy had written to the head of the Senate committee stating he “may have made a mistake” in filling out his expense forms. Duffy’s claims will also be monitored for the next year.. Harb, Brazeau and Duffy claimed tens of thousands of dollars in housing allowance claims in recent years. However, the Deloitte audit also found that Duffy improperly claimed expenses for a Florida trip. “Included in these claims were twelve (12) days of per diems during the period where Senator Duffy appears to be located in Florida, United States, for a total amount of $1,050.60 (12 days at $87.55 per day),” the audit said. In question period Thursday, Opposition Leader Tom Mulcair dismissed the Senate’s response to the issue as a “fraud.” “Even the bogus investigation by his handpicked cronies in the Senate found that Mike Duffy does not maintain a primary residence on Prince Edward Island,” Mulcair said in a question to Prime Minister Stephen Harper. A fourth senator, Pamela Wallin, is also being audited by Deloitte, but the firm has asked for more time to complete its report on her travel expenses between Ottawa and Saskatchewan.

But how many of the bad senators will even face any jail time? http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2013/05/08/pol-senate-audit-housing-expenses-thursday.html

Mike Duffy made secret deal with Harper’s chief of staff during audit Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s chief of staff secretly intervened to help  Conservative Sen. Mike Duffy pay back tens of thousands of dollars in improperly  claimed expenses while an external audit was still underway, CTV News has  learned.Two months before the audit was released, Harper’s top advisor Nigel Wright  had a PMO lawyer work on a letter of understanding with Duffy’s legal  counsel.Sources told CTV’s Ottawa Bureau Chief Robert Fife that the deal involved  Duffy reimbursing taxpayers in return for financial help and a promise from the  government to go easy on him.  But Liberals accused the Tories of whitewashing Duffy’s expense reports. They  also questioned why the audit of Duffy’s expense claims did not mention that the  Senate rules were clear about primary residence claims. That was mentioned in  Brazeau and Harb’s audits.

Duffy, Liberal Sen. Mac Harb and Independent Sen. Patrick Brazeau were all  audited over concerns about their housing allowance claims. Senators can claim an annual housing allowance of up to $22,000 if their  primary residence is more than 100 kilometres outside of Ottawa. Harb has claimed as his primary residence a bungalow in Westmeath, Ont., but  neighbours told CTV earlier this year that no one seems to live in the house  year-round. He was ordered to repay $51,482, including interest, for the period  from April 1, 2011 to March 31, 2013. Brazeau claimed his father’s address in Maniwaki, Que., as his primary  residence, despite the fact that it is believed he lived in a home in Gatineau,  a short drive from Parliament Hill. He must pay back $48,744, including  interest. Both Harb and Brazeau have said that they will fight the Senate’s repayment  orders.
