CALGARY – Alberta is suffering an “image deficit” over criticism of the province’s oilsands and provincial Conservatives called for a new campaign to minimize the damage to business and tourism. A resolution introduced at the Alberta Progressive Conservative Convention on Saturday argued that sophisticated and well-financed environmental organizations and special interest groups are having success in attempts to redefine Alberta’s image in “extremely negative” terms. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/10/29/alberta-concerned-only-lately-about-its-image-reputation/
A NEW ALBERTA-
A POLICE STATE
Statistics Canada has found that Canada’s police force expenditures grew for the 12th consecutive year, to about $11-billion, or $344 per capita. About 1,800 new officers were added, the third-largest annual jump in the past 30 years. The provinces adding the most new officers were Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. In a recession too.. No one cares to manage the bad cops or make them work effectively, efficiently still.. so they sock it to the taxpayers again and again.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/06/25/we-need-more-red-light-cameras-elsewhere-too/
WE NEED ROBIN HOOD AGAIN…
I am only following orders is not a valid response for anyone, any cop now too… then maybe they should quit this bad job.. while the truth is that in most communities, the bulk of the ticket fees do go to the general funds while next a portion is also sent to the city or county who wrote the ticket. Still, it is your bad police force that does writes thousands of tickets a month and that income can quickly add up to millions of dollars and be very beneficial to the bad governments especially in these sour economical times as well, and also as lead for more raises, promotional for these bad, abusive cops now too.. It’s really still a perverse form of generating revenue without spending much additional money to get that much wanted additional income even if they now also are taking it also now from the unemployed, disabled, very poor drivers. Bad judges , bad lawyers, bad politicians too are part of these traffic revenue corruptions now too.
Liars, pretenders claiming to serve the public best interests including the Albertan Sheriffs nab scores of drivers FOR SPEEDING GENERATING VAST REVENUES. Police like to project the lie that speeding is unsafe driving.. and is the main reasons for car deaths, accidents, even though speeding is not the major cause of car accidents in Alberta , or in Canada, Rather 45 percent of accidents, realted deaths are caused by drunk, impaired drivers that the police fail adequately to deal with as the police own statistics do show this too . Distracted drivers, bad drivers, road rage also cause more road accidents over speeding.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/04/24/research-on-real-world-behavior-crash-factors/
CASH STRAPPED ALBERTA GOVERNMENT LOOKS FOR ANY EXCUSE TO GET MORE MONEY FROM ALL OF IT’S CITIZENS OFTEN TOO
They use the Calgary police, Edmonton police, traffic light cameras, Radar cameras, RCMP and Sheriffs to collect as much traffic ticket revenue, other ticket revenues, that they can and have also build big court houses to handle the larger court volumes as a result too, all done by using a distorted letter of the law approach.
WE ALL REALLY NEED PROTECTION FROM THESE SELF SERVING CONSERVATIVES
|Weekend Infractions revenue recorded in the RCMP district of Cochrane|
|Traffic Safety Act||467|
|Gaming and Liquor Act||143|
|Environmental Enhancement and Protection Act||1|
|Provincial Parks Act||25|
|Controlled Drugs and Substances Act||30|
|Serious motor vehicle collisions||2|
|Arrests in field||25|
Southern Alberta RCMP recorded an increase in violations at backcountry campsites and on rural roads as enforcement officers were out in full force over the long weekend. All supposed infractions generate much need revenue for the cash strapped Albertan government.
Preliminary statistics for the RCMP district of Cochrane, which includes the popular McLean Creek area, indicate a total of 960 incidents from Friday until noon Monday, said RCMP Sgt. Patrick Webb.
Almost 500 of the cases were violations of the Traffic Safety Act, 200 were warnings, and 30 were seizures of small amounts of drugs that did not warrant charges.
Officers, including fish and wildlife staff and provincial sheriffs, can now issue tickets on the spot for infractions such as a messy campsite. Charges like that used to require an officer witnessing the violation as well as a lengthy court process. Campers who don’t clean up their site face a new $172 fine.
Now in reality the Police who are often lying and saying they are serving the public good by going overboard with their law enforcement are just merely being selfish thugs, self centered, trying to promote themselves at the citizens expense and that is now true Canada wide, with the local police, RCMP, sheriffs now too.
And this EXTREEME POLICE ENFORCEMENTS also cause the profits, revenue for the insurance industrry to go up as the insurance firms raise the driver’s rate now next too.. that is really socking it to them..
