So it seems liars will still say anything to get elected..

 

Pie in the sky before the provincial election leads to pie in the face after the election  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/11/11/too-many-liars-in-canada/
 .
So it seems liars will still say anything to get elected..
 .
and which clearly reminds me of our PM Stephen Harper who said there is no recession before the last recession and next said that Canada was facing the worst recession after the election he on too.
 .
“YES, I can quickly sum up my political experiences in Canada.. for decades now most people in Canada  seem to elect liars and alcoholics for politicians, and we have had now much too many of them elected as well.. Of course  it seems natural for alcoholics to lie, they seen to often lie that it is is ok to drink alcohol in the first place, and it seems natural for many lawyers who run for political offices, and many want to be politicians to lie to get elected.. Yes most people elect liars who tell them the things they want to hear.. we all know that had Stephen Harper told the truth that Canada was going into a major depression next, he very likely would have never got elected. so he said there was going to be no election or recession, he clearly lied. After he was elected he admits Canada was facing a big recession of course, how could he deny otherwise. I openly express the truth that we should stop electing any liars and alcoholics, even in the police forces, civil and public services now too,  and when it is confirmed that they are thieves, cheats,  liars or alcoholics they should be immediately fired, recalled.. as simple as that too. Some professing ostrich evangelical totally deny that the professing Christians drink alcohol, they have a problem with the alcoholics rather and not me I merely reported the truth, facts, that many professing Christians drink alcohol and falsely try to justify it as well.. Alcohol does a lot of brain damages, negatively affects your ability to work, to live normal, alcohol is a major cause of car accidents, tends to destroy your family life, so of course I have no use for alcohol or alcoholics anywhere. Neither should any of us not just MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. and a  bad immoral Conservatives is not better than a bad immoral Liberal, especially firstly the alcoholic ones. “
.
Conservative party had also  helped piece together Duffy’s activities for RCMP  Now that is what next happens when a pretend professing Born again evangelical, alcohol abstainer, hire someone in the Happy Hour bar ..They all need to look in the mirror and deal with their own shortcomings firstly too as it seems we still select big liars for politicians
.
” Measures designed to protect the private interests of families and children, persons involved  ought not to be used to prevent me or the legislature, Parliament now rightfully highlighting, reviewing what I do believe is to be shortcomings in the applications of  laws. The lack of rightful prosecutions of persons who make perjury before the courts even.  “
.
conservative-news-2
.
“Remember those too typical pre-election Conservative Politicians lying words  even about holding now real people in the civil and public services, governments  accountable now for their wrong doings.. well how many new persons have been prosecuted, held accountable since the federal election? how many?? “
 .
“Now Jason Kenney, Stockwell Day, Vic Toews, and Prime Minister Stephen Harper we are still waiting for you to show us all how you fully hold a guilty RCMP officers, and their bad superiors  fully accountable for their own wrong doings.  Putting criminals into jail serves a useful purpose but that now also includes the bad civil and public servants, the bad cops, bad RCMP officers and bad politicians … and not mainly just the bad citizens.. so now how many bad civil and bad public servants, bad conservatives has the new Conservative federal government put into jail this year.. please do tell us all the truth, list it for us… and rightfully install fair, honest, decent police commissions to protect the citizens and then not so many people will want to assault the police too.. we already know how abusive and crooked the too often lying cops, their sergeants, superiors  and their commissions tend to be.. what real practical good besides mere cheap words, unfulfilled promises are you all going to do about it as well?  Once again the Conservatives easily show to all what big liars they are when it comes to holding to accountability one of their own too.
 .
” You can fool some of the people some of the time, most of the people most of the time but not all the people all of the time, and those people will next still set the others straight.. “

 STAY INFORMED

PS: Look at this, due to the undeniable Recession, budget and tax cuts,  Municipalities across Canada have  been cutting back even on their services, snow clearing now too, which has been leading up to more car accidents, and cause the police cannot tell the truth about their employers, the police now lie, and divert the truth, saying that speeding vehicles were the cause of most of the accidents. In reality now also  speeding also still is not the main reasons for accidents but driving while impaired is.. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/01/08/drivers-will-face-significant-insurance-rates/

The whole truth comes out.. drunk drivers, snow removal, road accidents, recession..

Surging welfare demands in Ontario now really still begs the Questions as to when actually many of these people had lost their jobs, were unable to find one, after all welfare is used after one’s months of Unemployment insurance is used up first? It ALSO THUS seems someone is not telling us the true figures of the number of people unemployed in Canada, Ontario firstly, the recession did not just start this year.. especially since the people on welfare are generally no longer counted as unemployed.. Well the whole truth is coming out, being exposed even in Ontario. 

“CP  Ont. – Premier Dalton McGuinty dismissed calls Tuesday to accelerate the uploading of social assistance programs from municipalities, despite warnings that surging welfare costs will mean big tax hikes for struggling homeowners. “The short answer is no, I don’t believe so,” McGuinty said in London, Ont. The province, which pays for 80 per cent of welfare benefits, has moved a “long way” towards easing the burden on municipalities, he said. “Our burden, so to speak, is four times greater than theirs when it comes to dealing with the challenge of increasing welfare roles,” McGuinty said. “Just as they have financial challenges, so do we, and we’re going to have to find a way to manage our way through these.”  

A recent TD Economics report warned that homeowners in struggling Ontario communities may be hit with big property-tax hikes to cover rising welfare costs during the recession. The report singled out Toronto, but TD economist and co-author Derek Burleton said other municipalities will face similar financial pressures as the economy sours. In its budget plan released Tuesday, Toronto signalled that residential property taxes will rise by four per cent in 2009. Mayor David Miller cited higher costs for transit, policing, snow clearance (* this  explains why there have been more road accidents in Ontario now too, 17000 in the last 2 months, since Ontario’s roads have not been immediately cleared of the snow it seems..) and welfare in defending the hike. Municipalities can’t go into deficits, but the provincial government can. Municipalities currently pay 20 per cent of welfare benefits, but they also administer the program, and the province has capped increases to its share of those administrative costs, Burleton noted in his report. 

Windsor, Ont., has been struggling for years to find a way out of a severe economic downturn that began in 2002, said Mayor Eddie Francis.  As manufacturing jobs disappeared, welfare caseloads started to “skyrocket” in 2005, he said.  With Windsor’s jobless rate hitting 11 per cent – the highest in Canada – more people are turning to welfare and other social programs as their unemployment benefits run out, Francis said.  As the costs of maintaining those programs go up, the amount of tax revenue the city is collecting is plunging, he added.  * “We’re at a point right now where… we’ve cut to the bone in terms of city services,” Francis said.  Last year, the city lost about $15 million in tax revenue – the equivalent of a four per cent tax hike – because property values are falling and companies are shuttering plants and factories, Francis said.  The loss of a GM plant alone would cost the city $3 million in much-needed tax revenue, he added.  Speeding up the provincial upload of costs from municipalities and the arrival of much-needed federal cash for infrastructure projects would ease financial burden many cities and towns are facing, he said.  “Everything is needed right now – all the tools,” he said.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090211/national/ont_municipalities_welfare 

* It clearly appears that the lying Police chief of Ontario and also cops themselves who wrongfully  even as of lately had have blamed most of the drivers themselves, speeding,  for most of the accidents, they clearly wrongfully had failed to mention now that snow clearing  road services were not up to par due to the recession… and definitely contributed to the accidents. the Liars, the” OPP responded to over 17,000 crashes on OPP patrolled highways in the last two months. Sgt.

Now also the recession has been  going on for years in Ontario since 2005 and Stephen Harper did not know this as the Prime Minister of Canada, so now supposedly he could not deal with it or in reality he wrongfully again did not care to know, deal with it still  oo? and he does not know firsthand about alcoholism and it’s  problem now too? 

Former Liberal prime minister Paul Martin complained Stephen Harper was too slow in bringing forward a stimulus package, saying the government should have acted before Christmas.”I think the situation is very worrisome and I think that when you see these job numbers it’s a pity that we didn’t begin with the stimulus much earlier,” Martin said of a $40-billion plan MPs approved in principle last week.
 
Meanwhile, Brian Mulroney expressed skepticism over Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney’s prediction the economy will pick up next year. “The quicker you get at this kind of thing, the better off you are. I also think it’s very important the kind of stimulus that you engage in.””While I hope he’s right, I find it somewhat optimistic,” said Mulroney, who grappled with a massive deficit that amounted to 8.7 per cent of the GDP when he took over from Pierre Trudeau in 1984.   http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090210/national/tv_prime_ministers

Parallel listeriosis investigation

Parallel listeriosis investigation pushed by NDP

 February 10, 2009 3:01 PM
 
1nocharges1

OTTAWA — A parliamentary probe is being launched into the listeriosis outbreak that killed 20 Canadians after the opposition parties complained Tuesday the government-appointed investigator is hamstrung by a flawed process.

The New Democrat’s agriculture critic Alex Atamanenko on Tuesday won the backing of Liberal and Bloc Quebecois MPs on the House of Commons agriculture committee to move forward with a plan to conduct a Parliamentary investigation on food safety.

The three opposition parties left the committee meeting unsatisfied with the government’s investigation, and vowed to table a plan on Thursday to form a special parliamentary committee to conduct a probe in full public view.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper last month announced the appointment of Sheila Weatherill, former head of Edmonton’s regional health system, to conduct an independent investigation into the August outbreak linked to processed meat products from a Maple Leaf Foods Inc. plant in Toronto.

But the opposition say Weatherill does not have the power to subpoena witnesses or compel testimony, and her work is being carried out behind closed doors.

“We have to do this because Ms. Weatherill’s inquiry is not a real inquiry and it’s certainly not public,” said Andre Bellavance, the Bloc’s agricultural critic and a vice-chair of the agriculture committee.

Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz on Tuesday assured MPs on the agriculture committee that Weatherill “certainly has the capacity and capability to do the job.”

Ritz also said she doesn’t need the power to subpoena because the government is “co-operating fully with her.” The minister also emphasized that he will make public her final report, expected by July 20.

Wayne Easter, agriculture critic for the Liberals, said the government probe “is nothing more than an absolute farce, and is trying to sweep under the rug serious shortcomings in our system, so we need to get to the bottom of it.”

Ontario MP Bev Shipley, a Tory member of the agriculture committee, said he and his colleagues will consider the motion when it comes up for a vote, expected as early as Thursday.

 

Conservative members of the committee cannot block the launch of the Parliamentary probe because opposition members outnumber them. “Clearly, the whole listeriosis issue is a serious issue and we have someone in place that will be giving an independent report on it,” said Shipley.

Atamanenko said the plan is to strike a separate parliamentary committee to investigate food safety and the listeriosis outbreak so the regular business of the agriculture and health committees does not get short shrift.

Net neutrality hearings

 Net neutrality hearings deadline: Get your submission in!

38-zoom

The deadline to tell the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to save net neutrality in Canada is fast approaching: February 16, 2009.

In response to complaints against the major telecoms companies operating internet pipes in Canada (Bell, Videotron, Rogers, etc.) for “throttling” and “traffic shaping” P2P data on their systems, the CRTC has asked Canadians what they think about the issue of net neutrality. This is the big one. If we lose net neutrality, we lose the intenet as an open and accessible medium for communication.

Unless the CRTC is convinced by Canadians that net neutrality should be preserved, they will let the telecommunications companies begin to shape internet use. If you are wondering what this might mean, just turn on your television: the internet will follow the path of every mass media before it. It will become a medium only accessible to the very wealthy, and citizens and community groups will be effectively shut out.

If you are still unsure about net neutrality, here are a few short videos to help explain. The best analogy that I’ve heard comes from Lawrence Lessig. Net neutrality is what we have with our telephones. We pay for a service that is entirely independent of the content of our conversations. The telecommunications companies want to base service and cost on the ability to differentiate among data that travels over their lines. Websites could be made to pay exorbitatnt fees to download quickly, or at all. Losing net neutrality would be like allowing telephone companies to charge different rates or provide different quality of service based on what we are talking about …

Beware laying spin doctors at work. Remember how they said in the past in Canada that the closed door  to the US borders was temporary, even for the mad cows as well, and next the reality was very severe, different . Now another lying government spin doctor says this Canada wide recession will only last one year.. but the reality is 15 years, for that is how long it takes to kick start again the Canadian economy in historical reality.  

And making it easier to get a car loan or a home mortgage when many people have decided not to drive at all, and have clearly  stopped buying non essentials is another Harper- Conservative absurd approach too.

 There is no doubt that Stephen Harper brought his government to the brink of downfall after last fall’s economic statement that called for the abolition of taxpayer subsidies to political parties, with severe damage to the reputation of Stephen Harper as a successful leader now as well.   Stephen Harper’s SOLE RECESSION help  at that time was mainly  to cut the opposition parties grants. We all now know what happened next. The new Conservatives under Stephen Harper next came within a governor general’s decision of falling to a Liberal/NDP coalition that was propped up by a more than willing Bloc Quebecois. Harper awaken to the gravity of the situation, suspended parliament for 60 days and came out with a new budget which could have equally been drafted by Michael Ignatieff, the current Liberal leader and Stephen Harper was saved from the guillotine as a result. While the new Conservative -Harper government unveiled in shock its deficit producing, record-spending budget  that today that’s called stimulating the economy, but  few years ago, it was called the sponsorship program that was despised, objected to by the same Conservatives, Harper included. It’s overall effectivness is very much questionable again too. “Conservative ministers have been dispatched on selling trips across the country, armed with press releases and promises of much public loot at every stop” they now  should not stop any of us from examining the actual working details, productiveness, effectiveness  of the budget still and all taxpayers on high alert for taxpayer’s money abuses still too. Since we tend to know that History repeats itself and there still rather likely would be a lot better way to spend the same money and produce more effective job creation results for the unemployed, jobless citizens.  Especially “As federal Auditor General Sheila Fraser reported last week, the government spends billions of dollars every year with no clue what, if anything, it achieves.  And when a program is driven by photo ops and a need to spend public money quickly, odds are high it is a boondoggle waiting to happen. It’s not that we haven’t seen this movie before. The last time a government launched a major infrastructure spending spree to “stimulate a moribund economy” was in the 1990s. By the time the cheques were written, the program had provided fodder for not one but two damning reports by the auditor general. ” Causing a change of government and next  we taxpayers were not any better off now as well! Forecast for  days ahead, Vigilance of the new Conservatives, Stephen Harper rightfully still needed. 

“OTTAWA – After dismal jobless reports out of Canada and the U.S., the Liberals wasted no time Friday attacking the Conservatives on their handling of the economy.  “Not only did they not see this coming, but they have no idea where they are going,” Liberal finance critic John McCallum said to kick off Question Period.  Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff said January’s record job loss numbers paint a clear picture of just how severely the recession has affected Canadian families while the Conservatives were asleep at the switch. Ignatieff said the staggering numbers are precisely why he has put the government on probation with his Liberal budget amendment.  “Last fall, Stephen Harper said that it was a good time to buy stocks, he said that there was no need to run a deficit and he said if we were going to have a recession it would have happened by now,” said Ignatieff. “We now know that as he was saying that, the market fell further, the Conservatives were in the red, and over 234,000 jobs were lost.”  “This government has failed to plan and failed to protect Canadian jobs. It didn’t see the seriousness of the downturn and failed to bring in an immediate stimulus package when the urgency was clear,” he said.”
  

Ignatieff making more favourable impression than Harper, Layton: Poll  OTTAWA – A new poll suggests the Tories’ federal leadership advantage has evaporated since Michael Ignatieff took over the Liberal helm.
