TOO many liars in Canada, thieves too

   For more cartoons do see  
Pleasing  the crowd, thinking positive, spin doctoring,  political correctness is a common writer’s demon that tries the patience of the best of us and  the epitome of the writer’s dishonesty. 
Like all the teachers now have to do it seems I continually do have to remind our politicians  and news media what is acceptable, and unacceptable still.. and even what the truth now  is too!
 This isn’t News article, it’s a false brain washing press release, or a commercial propaganda, which seems to apply to too many of of the daily news stories I encounter.. and the governmental handouts too now.

The journalistic positive spins example..


September new house prices up more than expected Vancouver Sun –  New home prices rose more than expected in September as Canada’s real estate market showed further signs of recovery. OTTAWA — New home prices rose more than expected in September as Canada’s real estate market showed more signs of recovery.


Ottawa-Gatineau builders raise selling prices in September Ottawa Business Journal


Job losses sharper but shorter in this recession


now as to the negative reality…


EnCana third quarter profit plunges 99%  Vancouver Sun –  OTTAWA — Earnings at EnCana, Canada’s largest natural gas producer, plunged 99% to US$25-million, or 3 US cents a share, in the third quarter as a result of lower oil and natural gas prices. 


CANADA STOCKS-TSX falls as soft commodity prices weigh


Sept. new home prices down 2.7% on the year –  New housing prices were 2.7 per cent lower in September 2009 than they were 12 months earlier, Statistics Canada said Thursday. New house prices increased 0.5 per cent in September over August, Statistics Canada said Thursday.



BCE Inc., Bell Canada Enterprises Inc. on Thursday said lower restructuring costs pushed its main Bell unit to report a 26 per cent rise in operating income last quarter, but warned that a slowdown in the business market and a continued Canadian weak economy will keep revenues at the lower end of expectations into the fourth quarter of 2009.  The company was in the process of cutting jobs and streamlining its divisions. Canada’s largest phone company, reported third-quarter profit  as customers spent a third more to send e-mail messages and surf the Internet from their handsets.  Net income rose to C$558 million ($532 million), or 72 cents a share, from C$248 million, or 31 cents, a year earlier. All because the CRTC helps Bell to suppress competition, decent consumer pricing..  BCE began offering Apple Inc.’s iPhone in Canada last week through its Bell Mobility wireless unit, breaking the monopoly held by Rogers Communications Inc. Bell, which introduced Palm Inc.’s Pre phone nationwide in August, is now using both devices to force consumers to spend more on data after the economic slowdown forced cutbacks in long-distance calling. BCE rose 5 cents to C$27.14 at 4:10 p.m. in Toronto Stock Exchange trading.  Third-quarter revenue increased 0.5 percent to C$4.46 billion. The company said Bell’s revenues from operation increased 1.2% in the quarter to $3.79-billion, but the growth was largely fuelled by the acquisition of The Source stores and the remaining 50% of the equity of Virgin Mobile Canada. Bell said it added 135,000 wireless subscribers and that average monthly revenue per user was C$52.13 in the quarter. Bell TV revenues were also up 10.2 per cent, The company also reported growth in video revenues which offset the natural declines in local, long-distance and wireline data revenues. Bell can never make enough money nor adfully please all of the customers..  

Chief Executive Officer George Cope is putting the savings from about 5,000 job cuts, or 11 percent of the company’s workforce, since June 2008 into marketing and subsidizing  new smart phones. The company also had eliminated 1,100 jobs in the third quarter.  BCE has thus cut about 6,200 people. Bell   recognizes that the slowdown in the business market and a weak Canadian economy will keep revenues at the lower end of expectations into Q4 2009. Average monthly revenue per customer decreased to about $64, down $3.98, as subscribers switched to lower monthly rate plans, used their phones less and lower roaming revenues, customers on average were spending less than a year ago due to the weaker economy, negative price gougings, also there was no intent  of Bell eliminating 911 or service activation fees,





Telus Communications Inc. (T-T33.500.200.60%) launches legal action against Rogers Communications Inc. (RCI.B-T33.00-0.14-0.42%) for allegedly misleading ads claiming Rogers provides “Canada’s fastest network.”  In documents filed in B.C. supreme court, Telus says that since a Nov. 5 upgrade, a network run by Bell (BCE-T27.640.431.58%) and Telus offers faster and more reliable service than the Rogers network.  Telus says Rogers advertisements introduced in 2007 and continuing after Nov. 5 that claim Rogers provides “Canada’s fastest network: two times faster than any other,” are now false and misleading.  Telus also claims similar advertisements that Rogers provides “Canada’s most reliable network,” have also been false since Telus’ upgrade.  Telus is seeking a declaration from Rogers that its advertisements breached Canada’s Competition Act, in addition to injunction from distributing the ads, damages and compensation. Canada’s wireless telecommunications industry, in which Telus, Bell and Rogers control about 90 per cent of the market, is set to become more competitive as Telus and Bell introduce Apple’s coveted iPhone, which Rogers has offered for more than a year.

False misleading advertising has long time been made by Telus, Rogers, Bell and others in Canada whole the Ostrich federal consumer dperantmt, government did nothing.. I even wrote to you about THIS ISSUE  too and what it takes the courts to deal with everything now, AND so why do we need the  government ?

 I remember too recently the spin doctors telling you that in spite of the recession now was a good time to buy a home and for you suckers who next  did get into big debts,  here  is what they say to you now..

Real estate recovery will be weak in Canada due to limp demand, report shows   Canada’s real estate market didn’t fall as hard or fast as in the U.S., but some spots did suffer steep losses and a recovery will be slow as buyers worry about another potential economic dip, a new report suggests. 
Stimulus funds forget high jobless areas   OTTAWA – Canada’s high jobless regions are losing out as billions in federal stimulus money flows into areas that have been spared the worst of the recession, an analysis by The Canadian Press suggests. 
That is what Harper and his gang are realy like too..they are like still.. By their own fruits you tell what they realy are..

Meanwhile   Sarnia, Ont., police officer arrested and charged with sexual assault  SARNIA, Ont. – A member of the Sarnia, Ont., police force faces sexual assault charges.In a brief news release, Chief Phil Nelson says an officer, currently before the court on other criminal matters, has been arrested and charged following an investigation by Chatham-Kent police.

BC home inspector ruled ‘negligent,’ must pay nearly $200,000 to buyers  VANCOUVER, B.C. – A home inspector has been ordered to pay nearly $200,000 to a North Vancouver couple who were told the house they wanted to buy only needed basic repairs. A   B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled Imre Toth was “negligent” and provided “woefully inadequate” estimates after his inspection of the house in September 2006. Toth’s report estimated house repairs would only cost about $20,000, when in fact they totalled more than 10 times the amount at $200,000.  The judge found the buyers wouldn’t have purchased the $1 million home had they been made aware of the extensive rotting beams and other structural problems.

QUEBEC – The outgoing leader of the Action democratique du Quebec blames the federal Tories for helping to destroy his party. In a scathing open letter, Gilles Taillon says his decision to sever ties with the federal Conservatives prompted a harsh response. Taillon says he met with Conservative Sen. Leo Housakos, a key player in both federal and provincial politics, and that he told him the tiny ADQ would be cutting ties with the Tories. Taillon suggests that meeting prompted a putsch, in which the Tories and former ADQ leader Mario Dumont orchestrated his ouster. Members of Taillon’s caucus began abandoning the party until, just 23 days into his leadership, he agreed to quit. The embattled ADQ leader writes that his leadership was undermined when he tried to end that “untouchable alliance” with the Tories. He also says he’s found troubling financial irregularities in the party’s books that he plans to report to police.   

 PS Someone should  do us all a favour and shoot the National Post, for it is a very sick horse, whose Conservative party  biased  lies and spins are visibly disgusting… Maybe the CBC now as well..
