Police, Others Pretentious, incompetent in real life.

 PARKING

SADLY POLICE TEND TO SPEND MOST OF THEIR ENERGY IT SEEMS ON SPEEDING, PARKING,  TRAFFIC TICKETS AND NOT ON THE DRUNK DRIVERS, OR ON THE REAL CRIMINALS THESE DAYS TOO. Why?
   

 
 And the lying no good police Public Relationship spin doctors and their false supporters now  too will next try to deny it.  By the sheer numbers of bad guys who get away with it many of us seem to get the impression the Police have never faced or dealt with criminals before too.. or are they wasting their time elsewhere? Car Speeders are much easier to find, to see and to convict over the real criminals now! So the Police spend much of their resources here instead.  Majority of criminals firstly are never caught, convicted, fully incarcerated even because existing laws are not adequately enforced  still by the too often pretentious, incompetent police, RCMP included now.   
 
Vincent Lacroix pleads guilty to fraud.. The guilty plea surprised many watchers Monday morning, including hundreds of investors who fell victim to the fraud scam. “If Vincent Lacroix had to answer questions [on the stand] we would have gotten information, and we could have known where the money went,” said Jean-Guy Houle, who lost some of his life savings to Norbourg. Another Corporate CROOK has fallen … thousands to go.  6 months at a minimum security prison…….  Wanna bet? for 100 million… Hahahahahaha!!!!! This will be seen as “justice” by the Crown because Lacroix will have to fly back from his private yacht in the Caribbean and check in with his probation officer every few months. Poor guy! Pre-emptying the conservatives promise to get tough on white collar crime?  , “NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S COVER”… all nice and shiny on the outside, but rotten as hell on the inside.    http://www.cbc.ca/canada/montreal/story/2009/09/21/quebec-norbourg-fraud-guilty.html

MONTREAL – Vincent Lacroix, the former head of Norbourg Inc., has pleaded guilty to 200 fraud-related charges.  Lacroix entered the pleas in a Montreal courtroom this morning and was immediately ordered incarcerated.  Sentencing arguments will be heard Friday. Lacroix had been accused of defrauding 9,200 investors and illegally appropriating more than $100 million.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090921/national/crime_fraud_lacroix

Thousands  and thousands of persons get  hurt, victimized now too.  The  maximum sentence for White collar crime fraud is  from 10 years to 14 years, not including parole, time served credit now too,  does not mean much if still most of the criminals do not get caught and convicted by the police in the first place.  Many people also undeniably now  blame the cops for the existence of the much too many crooked white collared crimes, business persons, and bad stockbrokers, bad civil and public servants  in reality  It is not just many  Quebecers but even also Calgary seniors who lost  in alleged Ponzi frauds http://www.cbc.ca/canada/calgary/story/2009/09/15/calgary-ponzi-couple-borst-sorensen-gold.html

Stiffer sentences for Ponzi scammers only a good first step The Canadian Press – ‎Sep 18, 2009‎ TORONTO — Stiffer sentences for white-collar criminals promised by the federal government are only a first step in the battle against Ponzi and other  

 

Coquitlam RCMP officer charged for drunk driving. A B.C. RCMP officer has been charged with impaired driving after being stopped by members of his own detachment on his way from the Boulevard Casino in Coquitlam early Friday morning. The officer was released from custody on a promise to appear in a Port Coquitlam court on Jan. 10, 2010. The name of the officer has not been released, but police did say he has been moved to administrative duties pending the completion of the criminal investigation and a parallel internal investigation. Drunk driving is beyond stupid… *Especially* when it’s a cop.  I just can’t understand why anyone would drive drunk. Especially a police officer.  What the hell is wrong with these people? Not good. Way too much of this going on. The RCMP and police forces in general are really losing respect and credibility. This stuff sure doesn’t help. at least they didn’t try cover it up…yet.

Being Pretentious and incompetent that is nothing now new BUT STILL  the sadly reality of many of our public and civil servants, cops, RCMP, political, regulating societies now included… and youoften  find out generally the hard way that truth when you are mow necessitated to try to use their services.. and not before. 

 

bad.APPLE

Diane Urquhart, a prominent investor advocate in Canada, said Thursday that Alberta and Quebec are the hot spots in the country for investor fraud. She said provincial securities commissions are ill-equipped to monitor and enforce illegal activity. “The securities commissions are not qualified to deter these Ponzi schemes,” said Urquhart, who was in Ottawa earlier this week urging the federal government to crack down on white-collar criminals.    “None of the security commissions in the country are effective,” she said. “Enforcement of securities laws and of the federal Criminal Code for securities is grossly deficient and has been for years.” Urquhart calling on the Alberta government to spend an additional $6 million to hire 20 new fraud police officers and help form an expert securities crime unit. “If we’re again going to have investor confidence in the regulatory process, it’s up to the government to ensure our rules are rigorously enforced,”   “If we’re willing to rigorously enforce our rules, the shady characters will move on.” Liberal finance critic Hugh MacDonald
 
Since clearly 2/3 of us do not respect cops, or the RCMP, governments, civil and public servants  in the first place.. they are all  so right too.
 RECOGNITION COMMERCIAL CRIME IN CANADA? GOES ON ALL THE TIME EVEN IN THE GOVERNMENTS  NOW TOO..  AND UNPROSECUTED STILL MOSTLY.
 
 The rich and middle class are (OFTEN) greedy, self serving, whining, and cheap. They want bargains, they want it free or they want someone to gift it to them. The lions share of them resent paying taxes, and god forbid they should pay their employees a living wage. ” Forget about your money ..Canada is very easy on the scammers especially those working in financial sectors. Just look at the banks, insurance companies, their fees are just like legalized loan sharks. Have U seen  if our Government does anything??”  http://www.cbc.ca/money/story/2009/09/15/f-new-ponzi-backgrounder-2009.html 
 
 IT IS THEIR BASIC GREED, OF CITIZENS, COPS, CIVIL AND PUBLIC SERVANTS, PROFESSIONALS INCLUDED, THAT MAKES MANY OF THEM   SADLY ALSO AN EASY TARGET FOR OR PARTICPATING IN FRAUD NOW AS WELL , some of them even next becoming also REAL crimminals never the less.
 

N.L. spending scandal nets another guilty plea .  Wally Andersen has pleaded guilty in Newfoundland and Labrador’s spending scandal,  Andersen pleaded guilty in a St. John’s court   to uttering forged documents and breach of trust by a public officer. The former Liberal MHA resigned his Torngat Mountains seat.  Reports filed by N.L. Auditor General John Noseworthy said Andersen received $344,465 more than he was entitled to through his constituency allowances. Former Tory cabinet minister Ed Byrne was sentenced to a jail term of two years less a day in April after he admitted to forging documents and faking signatures while stealing more than $117,000 through his tax-free constituency allowances.  Former New Democrat MHA Randy Collins also pleaded guilty to two fraud charges when he appeared in court last week. He’ll be sentenced in December.  There doesn’t seen to be any ethical requirement to become an elected representative. Politicians – right up there with used car salesmen.  Just another corrupt Politician , federal or provincial they are all the same. Amazing…all three parties found guilty of fraud. Makes you wonder who exactly you are supposed to vote for. When caught being corrupt—do we get to take their pensions away? And if not ,why not? As the courts will, as usual, hand out a slap on the wrist punishment–taking the pension would at least hurt a bit. As well as send a message. 
 
 Mayor cancels Montreal’s $355M water meter contract. Tremblay said Tuesday two of the city’s top bureaucrats — city manager Claude Léger and the city’s director of corporate affairs, Robert Cassius de Linval — have been fired. The move comes after the city’s auditor general recommended the city review — and consider cancelling — its contract with private consortium GÉNIeau because of irregularities with the tendering process  What about the $11 million that was paid to these guys for city repairs? Let’s just agree the whole system is bloody corrupt, eh? It seems Newfoundland politicians are pleading guilty to fast and loose spending, Ontario’s e-health looked outrageous, Ottawa’s mayer did a backroom deal… The repairs were never done, but the money was still paid. Maybe that explains the yacht in the Caribbean…  Criminals – the whole lot of them.  These type of stories always make me wonder – how many other dubious contracts are signed wasting our tax dollars?  Until people start getting fired and criminal charges are laid, these type of under the table deals will continue.  And we wonder why services continue to go down as taxes continue to go up. I say amend the criminal code to include a mandatory 5 year minimum jail sentence and a fine not less than 10 times the money involved, for breach of public trust. This amendment would cover all forms of corruption from conflict of interest to false accounting. By the time the first dozen or so of these crooks have been banged up – the rest won’t find public office so attractive once they know they can’t fleece the taxpayer. Calgary isn’t exactly squeaky clean as well nor Toronto.. “Zampino admitted he vacationed on Accurso’s yacht in the Caribbean during the tender process for the contract.” You’re not allowed to even speak to respondents to a bid outside of the allotted presentation/Q&A time never mind have a romance on the guys yacht in the Caribbean. This is no different than E-health. Bring this clown out of retirement and fire him and then send him to jail. Crooked politicians are crooked politicians not matter which province they come from.

DO SEE…
 

 
AND THE FIRST POLL THEY SHOULD DO IS TO FIND OUT IF ANYONE EVEN TRUST THE
P0LLERS AFTER ALL STAISTIC FIGURES CAN BE MADE NEXT TO LIE.
 
According to a new Nanos Research poll, which as stated before I do not trust, The poll was conducted by Nanos Research. Results are based on a national random telephone survey of 1,003 adult Canadians, between August 28 and September 2, 2009 Please tell me how you would rate the honesty and ethics of people in the following professions. Would you rate their honesty and ethics as  Total Very high High Average Low Very low Unsure
 
– Canadians rate physicians and pharmacists highest among 18 professions, when it comes to honesty and ethics.
  
Seventy-seven per cent of respondents call medical doctors’ standards of honesty and ethics “high” or “very high”, while the figure was 73 per cent for community pharmacists. While I trust them I always still get a SECOND OPINION TO BE ON THE RIGHT, SAFE SIDE. My Canadian Experience has taught me that gray haired doctors are more component firstly, built even gray haired doctors can be charge car happy and prescribe useless medical test too now.  And Pharmacists are here to make as much  money as they can  and some wrongfully push the more profitable, higher money making drugs.. in fact one product recommend to me by a Pharmacist at 9.99 $ sold for  1$ elsewhere.– Also among the   professions whose honesty and ethics were rated as “high” or “very high”, were high school teachers at 66 per cent, and police officers at 58 per cent.  40 percent of persons do not trust cops? My opinion of cops went much lower when I myself had actually tried to use their services in reality. Many people also undeniably now  blame the cops for the existence of the much too many crooked white collared crimes, business persons, and bad stockbrokers, bad civil and public servants  in reality

– and clergy at the   50 per cent. What 50 percent of persons do not trust the clergy? OR  Funeral directors or accountants

ACTUALLY IF YOU NEXT DO SPEND ONE DAY WORKING DIRECTLY WITH A CLERGY  YOUR OPINION MIGHT SIGNIFICANTLY WORSEN, FOR  I KNOW MINE ALWAYS HAS.

 – Majority of persons do not trust : Journalists,  Labour union leaders ,  Provincial government officials,   Building contractors ,  Lawyers ,  Bankers ,  Real estate agents,   MPP’s/MLA’s ,  Car salespeople ,  Business executives , Stockbrokers.  Politicians known to be as bad as the used car  salesmen

THERE ARE NO SURPRISES HERE FOR WE SEEM TO ALSO THINK MOST OF THESE PEOPLE CAN BE EASILY BOUGHT OR WILL SELL THEMSELVES FOR MONEY

And with all the latest recession, Ponzi scandals it is not surprising that the Business executives and  Stockbrokers are not trustworthy .

And most PEOPLE STILL DO THINK THAT ALL CEOs ARE SIGNIFICANTLY OVERPAID.. and even the University administrators

Now we should note how many Canadians hate the big three, Bell Corporations , Rogers, Telus for a start as well.
