Did you check out the serious very large amount of alcohol consumption that was, is being carried out at the Montreal city hall too.
.
We need to also stop electing liars and alcoholics too.. be for certain there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, and that there is a direct correlation between the people who are heavy alcohol users.. that they are the same persons who will also take bad drugs… and they will also be the same persons who also now do cheat , lie, steal, commit tax evasions.. as they have no solid morality
.
(Gal 5:19 KJV) Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
.
Politicans, civil and Public servants Pigging out, living high on the hog, or getting drunk and patronistic hiring practices, are clearly an unacceptable abuse.
.
If you drink 2 martinis at lunch time or supper time  for a start  you are definitely an alcoholic.
.
Now also the Provincial Governments, tend to not want to  reduce gambling or alcohol consumption for it is a great money maker for them, and too many Canadian politicians and cops do like to booze.. The problem with the Police or Politicians consuming too much alcohol, is that alcohol not only makes you a mental retard cause it does now kills your brain cell, alcohol also kills your emotions of compassion, and reasoning ability now as well.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/drink-alcohol-and-die/

Personal ties exposed in eHealth’s untendered contracts CBC.ca – Executives at two companies awarded untendered contracts from eHealth Ontario had close personal connections to the CEO and board chairman, CBC News has learned.
.

and  speaking of patronage hiring, hiring  friends like Stephen Harper often does..I had often already written about that before too.. bad practice for you cannot fire easily  incompetent friends still generally  most managers are racists too and they  will not hire a person with a non Canadian name, or a French Canadian  name in the West,,  or an English name in Quebec.. Most managers hire friends or friends of friends, and will not tend to hire a new, unknown person in reality too. So if you are looking for a job and have no friends? good luck.. Oriental guys like to hire pretty white chicks though.

PM Stephen Harper’s province…
Booze, gambling revenues now worth more than gas royalties to Stelmach government
http://ourcanadiancontent.wordpress.com/2010/08/27/booze-gambling-revenues-now-worth-more-than-gas-royalties-to-stelmach-government  
 .
Harper has been invoking a long term war, campaign, and he has systematically hired, placed in the government key Conservative party supporters, organizers paid for by the Canadian taxpayers and RIGHTFULLY they must be all fired, removed, or at least take away all work from them and give them an empty desk, and you can ALSO  rightfully start with Preston Manning now as well.
.
Most of us seem to have a really bad habit of electing  the bad alcoholics, or the liars, electing the lying people who tell us what we want to hear, AND MANY OF THEM ARE LIARS WHO TELL US WHAT THEY THINK WE WANT TO HEAR SO THEY CAN BE ELECTED.Pigging out, living high on the hog, or patronistic hiring practices, getting drunk  are clearly an unacceptable abuse.OTTAWA – A clearly perverted  Ontario Court of Justice,  judge acquitted former privacy commissioner George Radwanski of fraud and breach of trust in an expense scandal that dates back more than five years of  Lavish dining on the taxpayer’s dime saying falsely that  George Radwanski  may have fallen from favour, but that doesn’t make George Radwanski acts a criminal offence.  George Radwanski  rang up more than $24,000 in hospitality expenses during his less than three years in the privacy job, before a damning audit, a political storm and criminal charges drove him to quit in disgrace in 2003. ” Radwanski’s culinary extravagance made him the poster boy for charges of rot in the former Liberal government of Jean Chretien. “Radwanski was “clearly negligent” in accounting for his expenses, wrote the judge. He lacked frugality in his use of taxpayer dollars and but  there was “no allegation of any fabrication or falsification,” said the judgment.  “   “The court finding is a far cry from that of Auditor General Sheila Fraser, whose incendiary 2003 report on the privacy commissioner’s office led to an RCMP investigation and charges.  At the time, Fraser flatly asserted there was an “abuse of public funds by the former commissioner and some senior executives, for their personal benefit.”  She added that top executives “turned a blind eye to breaches of law and policy.”  It’s worth noting that business dried up at several high-end restaurants in the national capital region after the Radwanski affair and at least one went out of business.  “Now rightfully fire, get rid of the judge and the prosecutors now  too.Let us all be clear about it too, pigging out, living high on the hog, or patronistic hiring practices is clearly an unacceptable  abuse, theft of the tax payer s money for certainty, taxpayer’s money were never, never even intended out for this mater.

.

Radwanski’s expenses negligent but not criminal, judge declares Fri Feb 13, 3:49 PM  OTTAWA – Lavish dining on the taxpayer’s dime – once a given in Ottawa – has fallen from favour, but that doesn’t make it a criminal offence.

.

A professing Canadian Christian, of the bad Christian Missionary Alliance church, ( Stephen Harper)  lied to us, he next did not keep his promises of full transparency, or full accountability, and even that he would stop the perverse patronage hiring system, deal adequately with a bad lobbying system, and what else?

.

Yes  Stephen Harper the Prime Minister he too now has showed us all he really was a liar, no better than the rest, and he has continued wrongfully too to hire more of his conservative friends into good government jobs.. so now do rightfully fire him.

 ” Healthy opposition parties are absolutely essential to democracy. Whether or not they are effective in opposition should not depend on whether they can fundraise from private interests, a prospect which is much more difficult for opposition parties than the governing party for obvious reasons,” the governing party’s influence peddling and patronistic hiring included.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/12/17/
.
“The senate. Senate choices are revolting,  Harper handing Liberals more ammunition by his patronage appointment of senators. There are those like me who think the Upper House is nothing more than a high-priced retirement home for political hacks. it will cost hard-pressed Canadian taxpayers a fortune. Each senator makes $134,000 a year, or far, far more than the average person who toils at a real job. But wait that is just the beginning, add on their paid overseas  trips, expense accounts, etc. This was more about saving his government supporters than anything else.  Harper would have had a lot more credibility if he’d left the positions open and kept pushing for reform. “
.
“let us call the Senate what it is: a reward for the party faithful; an occasional arbiter of legislative common sense; and a supreme seat of patronage that looks like a violation of democratic principle to most Canadians, and like its epitome to those who rest their backsides in its cushy red chairs.   ( jmeek@herald.ca)  http://thechronicleherald.ca/Columnists/1097828.html
.
Harper’s own recent appointment of senators indicates clearly still that Harper  cannot be trusted to work with the opposition parties as a minority government. Harper had once sold himself to Canadians as a different kind of politician, one who’d refrain from using patronage appointments to the Senate. A man who could be trusted to keep that and other promises.. Instead, Harper has fast become the kind of governing politician he once professed to abhor — one who routinely breaks his word.  “Other examples include the $300-million fall election call, which broke Harper’s promise to stick to his own fixed election law and failed to deliver the majority he’d gambled on; Harper also reneged on his pledge not to impose new taxes on income trusts and his vow to exclude nonrenewable natural resources like oil and natural gas from the equalization formula — a decision critics say has cost Saskatchewan $800 million a year. All Canadians saw again now was  yet another prime minister rewarding mostly partisan party loyalists with a plum $130,000-a-year job and lavish perks.
 .
The loser, the Prime Minister Stephen Harper did next again what he said he would not do before, he appointed 18 Conservatives to the Senate on Monday… Two television journalists, an Olympic hero and a covey of Conservative partisans were named to the Senate in Stephen Harper’s biggest volley of patronage since he became prime minister.  Appointees will receive a $130,400 annual salary indexed to inflation until they retire or reach age 75, followed by a very comfortable pension – and both are indexed to inflation.    Most of those appointed to the Senate   18 Conservatives   were not household names, but well-connected Tories such as defeated candidates, campaign organizers and party fundraisers.  Harper’s timing, just before Christmas when most Canadians are preoccupied with holiday cheer rather than politics, suggests the government wasn’t anxious to showcase the appointments. A common Harper occurance.  Opposition parties questioned whether Harper has the political legitimacy for a patronage spree, having averted the defeat of his minority government only by suspending Parliament until the new year.   They also questioned the timing of the announcement – given the dire state of the economy and public finances. They said filling those 18 seats will cost taxpayers $6 million a year. “This business of stuffing the Senate possibly on his way out the door, it’s obscene. It’s the only word. It’s just obscene.”
.
After insisting he would never appoint people to an un-elected Senate, the prime minister sent a staggering 18 curly-tailed snorters to the Red Room, confirming his election pledges aren’t worth the paper they’re written on.  Harper talks a good talk when it comes to populace issues like balancing the books, Senate reform and fixed election dates.  But when it comes time to stand up and defend those principles in the real world of governing, Harper turns into a mashed potato.
 .
Also the same lying no good Conservatives clearly do  lie about another important issue that  of the public financing of political parties which as been legitimately and democratically  necessitated because of the past undeniable  tarnished image of all of the  past political parties,  the result of a long tradition,  of the political parties being unduly influenced by private financing and patronage the lying Conservatives now have characterized this falsely as private vested interests illegitimately dipping into the public purse. Which was not the case.

“Patronage compromising safety StarPhoenix, Canada – Last week, Prime Minister Stephen Harper made much of the fact that Linda Keen, the head of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) was appointed by a Liberal government, as if this somehow explained why she demanded that Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. should fulfil the conditions of its operating licence. The government seemed not at all concerned that AECL had long since dropped the ball on making the needed changes to its nuclear reactor at Chalk River. As far as Harper was concerned, the shortage of medical isotopes was all a function of Keen’s intransigence. Emergency legislation was passed that superseded the CNSC’s authority and the reactor was restarted. “
.
“Every government hires its friends, of course, but what makes these appointments so inappropriate is because they affect nuclear safety. We’re not talking about the normal kinds of patronage posts, where people confer citizenship papers or make decisions about milk quotas. We’re talking about nuclear reactors and radiation limits. It would be nice to think that the people making these kinds of calls actually know something about the nuclear industry.”

FOR A DECADE TOO I HAVE MADE IT VERY CLEAR RIGHTFULLY TO ALL NEWS EDITORS, ELECTED POLITICIANS AT THE FEDERAL, PROVINCIAL, MUNICIPAL LEVEL THAT NOT ONE CENT OF TAXPAYER’S MONEY SHOULD BE USED TO BUY ALCOHOL ENTERTAINMENT, EVEN BECAUSE 45 PERCENT OF ALL VEHICULAR ACCIDENTS ARE CAUSED BY  ALCOHOL, DRUNK DRIVERS, 65 PERCENT OF ALL CRIMES, DOMESTIC ABUSES NOW TOO.. ADDING TO THE OVERALL HEALTH CARE COSTS TOO. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/02/19/the-time-has-come-to-end-glamourising-alcohol-sponsorship/
.
It seems that 70 percent of the adults drink alcohol in Canada too but 100  percent of them claim to be non alcoholics? civil and public servants included, and where do all of the many drunk  drivers, alcoholics  come from now too? For the civil and public servants all you have to do is look at their expenses accounts, see how much they charged us for booze and that will quickly show us all whether they really are alcoholics or not for a start.  Few alcoholics will admit they are alcoholics just as few persons will admit they practice tax evasion as well. Drunk drivers still cause most of the car accidents but the police prefer to go after speeding tickets, it is easier to to get the speeders.. and very profitable, sadly it also ties up our courts with the mostly unnecessary cases too. If you drink 2 martinis at lunch time or supper time  for a start  you are definitely an alcoholic.. andf if you are an alcoholic you should be fired from your job as well.
.
Drinking alcohol cause permanent brain damage, it also causes a significant deterioration of one’s mental capabilities, deterioration of one’s inter personal relationship skills, it also causes more car accidents than speeding or not having adequate winter tires, it also reduces significantly one’s work productivity as well undeniably too.  So  tell us all now:
– How much money did the Prime Minister, the Premiers themselves now spend on Alcoholic consumption entertainment last year,
– How Much money did the federal, provincial cabinet ministers now spend on Alcoholic consumption entertainment last year
– How much money did the civil and public servants now spend on Alcoholic consumption entertainment last year
.
I trust you all can readily supply us all with the answers. The continual mismanagement, budget deficit, tax payer money abuses and has there been even any changes in all this really? We all  really still do need still a full  review of the waste, fraud, and abuse that has plagued governmental efforts. What is also needed is a enforced, real program to remove public officials from office that take our money and abuse it, spend it on their own false pet projects while many of our people still are not getting the help that they need. You also did notice the cops do too often still  not  practice what they preach to others they themselves still do like to speed, and how many like to drink and drive still too?
.
Even in our governments, history tends to repeat itself, including thefts, waste and mismanagement, deficits, and they tend not to rather get better and why? There are also plenty of places to try to save the tax payer’s money but starting to save the tax payer’s money at the expense of the poor people and their welfare programs is not the best  way to do this, not at all the way to do it!   The governments firstly should though clearly manage better it’s civil and public servants.. and the capital expenditures. Why? Well I do also know from real  experiences that it is also the services to the poor and needy persons, those who can afford it the least, that are wrongfully cut to make up for the past budget mismanagement by Ministers, managers of the civil and public servants too in Canada’s Provinces, Municipalities too. Rather than cutting back on the governmental aid, programs to  the poor and needy persons even next  because of the government’s own unacceptable past mismanagement we all do now too need to really take another continual look at how effective our tax dollars are always all of being used by the civil and public servants, and their managers, politicians now too. Cutting back on the Corporate welfare also is what the government still does also needs to deal with and not cutting firstly the Social welfare. The Corporations got what Billions  in social welfare from the tax payers? and we do not have money for the poor people? or for proper medical care, or for proper Justice, police, consumer protection  too? It never surprises me anymore when the superiors, Managers even  at City hall as well can also still  find money for new furniture, more staff, larger personal expense accounts but cannot find  the money to help the ordinary, poor and needy people during the good and bad times now too. Unacceptable.

.The past “Sponsorship manager suffered from alcoholism, inquiry told   Jim Brown Canadian Press   October 19, 2004   OTTAWA — The role of a key player in the federal sponsorship program has been called into question with the disclosure that he suffered from alcoholism.  Pierre Tremblay served as chief of staff to former public works minister Alfonso Gagliano in the early years of the program. He later moved to the civil service where he took charge of bureaucratic operations related to sponsorship projects.  But colleague Isabelle Roy confirmed at a public inquiry Tuesday that, through it all, Tremblay had a serious drinking problem and often couldn’t function after lunch. ” and how many more are there unacceptably like him still, alcoholics  in the government, MP’s Cabinet Ministers, managers, civil and public servants too?

.

By now you too should have found out too the New Conservatives are mostly just as disgusting as the bad Liberals they had replaced..
.
Again ““Dr. Daniel Akin, President of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary has written an article in favor of the famous Resolution #5 (Resolution calling for total opposition to alcohol). Alcohol is the number one drug problem among teenagers. (1 Cor. 8:13; 9:19-22; 10:32-33). Because I am an example to others, I will make certain no one ever walks the road of sorrow called alcoholism because they saw me take a drink and assumed, “if it is alright for him it is alright for me.” No, I will choose to set an uncompromising example of abstinence because I love them. I will seek my joy and filling in the Spirit not in alcohol. I love the Phillips translation of Ephesians 5:18 which reads, “Don’t get your stimulus from wine (for there is always the danger of excessive drinking), but let the Spirit stimulate your souls.” Psalm 4:7-8 adds, “You [O Lord] have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound. In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.” There is no record that Jesus drank strong drink, As a pastor or church leader, would I demand abstinence for leadership? Absolutely! The principle of Proverbs 31:4-5 is appropriately applied here, “It is not for Kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine, or for rulers to take strong drink, lest they drink and forget what has been decreed and pervert the rights of all the afflicted.” “

(1 Cor 11:28 KJV) But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

(Prov 3:33 KJV) The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.

Jesus himself had said that professing to be a Christian is not enough,

Matt 3:8 Bring forth fruit that is consistent with repentance [let your lives prove your change of heart];

Gal 5:23 Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge].

Matt 7:16 You will fully recognize them by their fruits. Do people pick grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles?17 Even so, every healthy (sound) tree bears good fruit [worthy of admiration], but the sickly (decaying, worthless) tree bears bad (worthless) fruit. 18 A good (healthy) tree cannot bear bad (worthless) fruit, nor can a bad (diseased) tree bear excellent fruit [worthy of admiration]. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire. 20 Therefore, you will fully know them by their fruits.

The Bible’s suggestions on electing rulers.. good managers

(Deu 1:13 KJV) Take you wise men, and understanding, and known among your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you.
(Deu 1:14 KJV) And ye answered me, and said, The thing which thou hast spoken is good for us to do.
(Deu 1:15 KJV) So I took the chief of your tribes, wise men, and known, and made them heads over you, captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, and captains over fifties, and captains over tens, and officers among your tribes.
(Deu 1:16 KJV) And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him.
(Deu 1:17 KJV) Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.
(Deu 1:18 KJV) And I commanded you at that time all the things which ye should do.

(1 Tim 3:1 KJV) This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
(1 Tim 3:2 KJV) A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
(1 Tim 3:3 KJV) Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
(1 Tim 3:4 KJV) One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
(1 Tim 3:5 KJV) (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
(1 Tim 3:6 KJV) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
(1 Tim 3:7 KJV) Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

1 Tim 3:2 Now a bishop (superintendent, overseer) must give no grounds for accusation {but} must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, circumspect {and} temperate {and} self-controlled ( Sober) ; [he must be] sensible {and} well behaved {and} dignified and lead an orderly (disciplined) life; [he must be] hospitable [showing love for and being a friend to the believers, especially strangers or foreigners, and be] a capable {and} qualified teacher,

Alcoholics, wine drinkers, smokers, drug users too they all tend to have evidentially lost their self control..

” There is absolutely no excuse for anyone driving drunk, be they Police officers or not. We are all aware of the fact that it is illegal and should all be held to the same standard. As to lighter sentencing, police generally get booted off the force after conviction.  “ if the matter is firstly  ever disclosed, prosecuted.. police tend to falsely cover-up for their own..
 All alcoholics should be fired anywhere..
 
Now in reality too often even a professing Christian Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper buys alcohol for others to elicit their support. Will he  also give out playboy too now?
 

Undeniably whether you are also a leader or not getting drunk is still an unacceptable sin as well. And all true Christians consider this still a sinful act

.

Then there is the manner of the selection of the police officers, the justices of the police, and the judges themselves now too, definitely political and partisanship influenced, hiring personal friends is a common practice in Canada still too, and it seems that bad people can be appointed, serve as  cops, lawyers, judges etc., still too.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/07/13/misapplications-of-the-laws-in-canada/
