 I am not trying to get your interest with sensationalized one line headers, spin doctoring, or politically correct, pretentious, crowd pleasing  writings, but merely by telling you the undeniable truth as I  see it, others wrote about it too. If you want to be lied to there are many sites who will do that for you but one day you still will have to face the reality, the truth.
 
According to Statistics Canada, Alberta experienced the largest job losses in the country. The federal agency reported Friday that employment in Alberta decreased by 15,000 last month, pushing the unemployment rate up 0.4 percentage points to 7.5 per cent, up from 7.1 per cent in September and 3.7 per cent a year ago. Since October 2008, Alberta’s employment has fallen by 3.3 per cent, or 68,000 jobs, the steepest rate of decline among all provinces.

OTTAWA – Canada’s economy shed more than 43,000 jobs last month in a clear indication that the struggling economy is still feeling the aftershock of the deep recession that erupted a year ago. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/091106/business/jobs and all the liars continued to say the recession in Canada was officially over, things were getting better, etc

“Canadian officials are taking part in negotiations for a top-secret copyright treaty that could see families barred from the Internet for a year if someone in the household is suspected of illegal downloads.Under the worldwide rules of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), Internet service providers such as Bell and Rogers in Canada would be required to become copyright police and filter out pirated material from their networks, hand over the identities of customers believed to be infringing copyrights and restrict the use of identity-blocking software.ACTA would employ a three-strikes policy. People believed to be regularly downloading copy-protected material, such as movie and music files, could have their Internet connection severed for up to 12 months and forced to pay a fine. “It’s incredibly disproportionate. Three unproven allegations of infringement will cut off Internet service for a year for an entire family,” said Michael Geist, who holds the Canada Research Chair in Internet and e-commerce Law at the University of Ottawa.”It’s not based on the individual user, it’s based on the connection,” added Geist, who said he has received details of the proposals from people closely associated with drafting the agreement. The treaty, which is being pushed forward by the Office of the United States Trade Representative, closely mimics the controversial Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) that governs copyright issues in the U.S. It puts in place measures that would make it illegal for consumers to make backup copies of DVDs or other media with built-in copy-protection technology. Other provisions could make information on iPods, laptops and other personal electronic devices illegal and force travellers to prove to border officials that the content on such devices was acquired through legal channels.  http://www.calgaryherald.com/business/Canada+talks+over+copyright+laws+with+bite/2189494/story.html
 
The federal, provincial governments, the CRTC, Conservatives, Liberals  unfairly maintaining  archaic, monopolistic telecommunication firms, that are often   bloated, cost ineffective, incompetent, over staffed, un-competitively managed as well is the main reasons consumer costs falsely keep on going up now.
  
FIRST DO TELL MY GOVERNMENT, THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA THAT ALL THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA, THE RCMP TOO NOW,  COPYRIGHTS DO ALSO BELONG TO ME, A CITIZEN OF CANADA, ONE OF THE MAY OWNERS OF CANADA NOW TOO, AND THAT AS A RESULT I CAN PASTE, POST ANY OF MY COPYRIGHT MATERIAL  FREELY ON MY WEBS SITE FOR ALL TO SEE.
 
TORONTO – The office of Canada’s auditor general says it’s perfectly OK – and much appreciated – if websites link to reports on its government site, but warns they should not be hosted elsewhere. Advocates for copyright reform expressed concern Thursday when the auditor general’s office demanded the Globe and Mail newspaper remove a copy of a report that had been attached to one of its online articles. The Globe was displaying the report with a web application called Scribd, which allows large documents to be embedded on a web page without the need for an external program like Adobe Reader. It also keeps readers on the same web page, rather than sending them off to another site to read the document. Beth Stewart, a lawyer for the office of auditor general Sheila Fraser, said the document was ordered off Scribd’s servers because of concerns with the website’s terms of use. It was her understanding that users of Scribd documents are permitted to alter the files and use them in other ways, Stewart said.

Is Canada still in recession or in mother of all jobless recoveries?   (CP)  OTTAWA — Canada’s economic recovery is suddenly looking vulnerable after Statistics Canada shocked observers Friday with new data showing the country lost 71,000 jobs last month. The October figure was the third major economic indicator that has surprised well to the downside since the Bank of Canada declared the recession over in July. But the grim jobs data – glossed up by a 27,500-gain in self-employment that brought the net loss to 43,200 – puts into question the previous two months of reported gains. In conjunction with gross domestic product readings of zero growth in July and a 0.1 per cent shrinkage in August, the growth predicted for the third quarter appears to have vanished into thin air. http://www.google.com/hostednews/canadianpress/article/ALeqM5i7F0zSW7kKY265PrP7X0s5pqnb4Q

black eye-health care
 
 “If we let Harper put the Conservative logo on EACH dose of H1N1 vaccine – there would be millions in short order.” with absolutely no lack of it…  It would all be very funny if it weren’t so sick.  Ken King, president and CEO of the Calgary Flames, should be embarrassed that he facilitated not only the team’s players, but their families and some executives of the hockey club, to bypass the normal channels to get inoculated ahead of people in the high-risk categories. The City of Calgary has been asking unsuccessfully since mid-October for vaccine units to immunize their police and fire department employees, yet King still sees nothing wrong with jumping the queue. He should do the honourable thing and resign from his position. Albertans and all Canadians deserve nothing less.
A second Alberta health-care worker has been fired for allowing 150 people connected with the Calgary Flames hockey team to jump the queue and receive H1N1 vaccinations at a special clinic last week. Alberta Health Services, the board that oversees health care in the province, made the announcement yesterday, two days after it dismissed “the most senior staff member involved” in the Flames flu controversy. “There is no process for authorization of the use of the H1N1 vaccine for this purpose, as it contradicts existing protocols and processes,” the board said in a statement. No other disciplinary action will be taken, the board said, adding that an advisory has been sent to everyone involved in the vaccination campaign to ensure “no exceptions will be made.”

Canada, OTTAWA – The biggest winners of the Conservatives’ stimulus extravaganza include one of the prime minister’s closest friends, a riding the Tories desperately hope to win in a byelection next week, and a longtime party stalwart.Conservatives come out on top in most provinces.. Eastern Ontario MP Scott Reid, the Nova Scotia riding of Cumberland-Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley and British Columbia MP Jim Abbott are three of the clearest winners in the distribution of stimulus spending, a broad analysis by The Canadian Press shows.Reid has deep roots in the party. Before he was elected in 2000, he served as a top adviser to Reform leader Preston Manning during the 1990s. Sharp and loyal, he has often been touted for cabinet, but was sidelined for a while for impolitic comments about bilingualism. He is the deputy House Leader.  Reid recently made the national news by posing with a giant stimulus cheque with his name emblazoned on top.Stimulus has also been relatively generous in the Quebec riding of Montmagny-L’Islet-Kamouraska-Riviere Loup, where the Conservatives hope their candidate can take the seat from the Bloc Quebecois in the byelections next week. The riding has 57 points, which seems low compared with other provinces, but is the fourth-highest in the province where stimulus has been slow to flow.spending programs most susceptible to pork-barrelling dedicate a large amount of money to a national purpose but don’t have specific local goals.. On the West Coast, the clear stimulus winners are longtime Tory MP Jim Abbott in the riding of Kootenay-Columbia..

The news media says that  New Democrat MP Nathan Cullen spent more on travel than any other MP this year, spending $228,603 to fly across Canada and trek around his sprawling British Columbia riding.  At the other extreme was Conservative MP Gordon O’Connor, who spent a mere $6,600 in travel — the least among sitting MPs. While O’Connor’s riding lies just west of Ottawa, his costs pale compared to the $28,553 chocked up by fellow Conservative MP Royal Galipeau, whose riding lies in the east-end of the city.  An analysis by Sun Media of documents tabled in the House of Commons shows a wide discrepancy in the travel costs MPs charged to taxpayers during the past year. And while the figures don’t include many categories of travel such as travel by cabinet ministers related to their jobs, travel by parliamentary committees and international conferences, it does give a glimpse of who is racking up the frequent flyer miles at taxpayers expense. Overall, Conservatives dominated the top 20 list, occupying 11 of the top 20 positions. While many of those who spent the most represent remote and isolated ridings, there were significant cost differences between MPs in far flung ridings. NDP MP Dennis Bevington, who represents the Northwest Territories spent $213,682 while Liberal Larry Bagnell, MP for the Yukon, charged $115,468.

Many senators are decent types trying to make intelligent and constructive contributions to public policy. But Mike Duffy’s only value has become that of poster boy for why the Senate needs, at very least, major reform if not outright abolition. With his wild rant on a CBC national politics show this week, the television icon has accomplished the difficult feat of offending all those in his parliamentary orbit — his former journalistic occupation, the Conservative party, senators, MPs and even the prime minister who appointed him. MP Peter Stoffer noted in passing, Senator Duffy racked up $44,000 in travel costs during just three months of unelected service in the Red Chamber. MPs from all parties have consistently ranked Peter Stoffer as the least partisan and most personable MP in Canada today. This is the same Duffy who, as host of his own politics show, presented himself for decades as journalistically neutral, then accepted Harper’s $130,000 appointment ten months ago and now devotes his energies to shamelessly shilling for the Conservatives.

 Our governments and our leaders seem still too ready to allow all of our taxpayer’s monies to be abused and that is unacceptable always. Someone has to be concerned about it, and one of the best ways to deal with the abuses is to expose it and to prosecute fully all the guilty participants. ESPECIALLY THE BAD CIVIL AND PUBLIC SERVANTS.  
 
Firstly It is really a criminal offence to misuse the taxpayers money, to use one’s governmental, job, related resources, time and energy to promote one’s political party too..  

 

Liberals and New Democrats together could unseat Harper   The Prime Minister’s divisive partisan tactics have diminished the public’s respect for politicians in general. In just four years, he has changed the tone of media coverage and public discourse, shifting the mood of the nation toward cynicism and selfishness. http://www.thestar.com/comment/article/719037  The more simple, practical solution is to arrest Prime Minister rightfully on abusing the taxpayer’s money.. many world wide prime ministers have been successfully tried and convicted for their wrong doings  world wide.  It is undeniable that Harper has already now  hired many supporters into governmental jobs : conservative party supporters, organizers, promoters who also are now using their governmental positions, jobs and positions to promote the Conservative party.. so now do not hesitate to arrest and fire all of them too..  Most people still rightfully do blame the governments, politicians, bad cops and bad judges, for the existence of much too many crooked civil and public servants, crooked business persons, crooked persons in Canada.  More Laws that are unenforced also tend to be still mostly useless too.

We can often know too often our civil and public servants, governments. Medicare now are pretentious and none of that is very acceptable still as well, especially when they take their pay from the taxpayer’s money but now show little good for it still too.

Here also is what I do know  also for sure for decades now too. Visiting the local charge card happy medical doctors tends to be totally inadequate when you have a  serious health issue. In fact mainly, rather only hospital emergency facilities can help you, cause they alone tend to have all the expertise, medical equipment needed to do the proper diagnosis, necessary tests still too. 
 
Meanwhile British Prime Minister Gordon Brown threatens to end Afghan mission unless corruption is tackled.   In a clear policy shift, the Prime Minister cautioned President Karzai that unless he quashes endemic corruption he will have “forfeited” his right to international support. “I am not prepared to put the lives of British men and women in harm’s way for a government that does not stand up against corruption,” he said. “But let me also be clear. People are right to ask whether our soldiers should be placed in harm’s way, if the government of Afghanistan is unable or unwilling to meet its obligations to the Afghan people.  A poll last night showed that opposition to the war has risen markedly in the last fortnight. Only 33 per cent of the British public think that the war can be won, while 57 per cent think that victory is no longer possible.. and what does Stephen Harper Prime Minister of Canada say?
