WHERE’S THE STEPHEN HARPER PROMISED CANADIAN JOBS???????

 

Canada’s economy goes into reverse Montreal Gazette –  Canada’s economy declined in July for the first time in more than a year as the country’s recovery faltered

 
( Bring down the price of rent; food; down. Stop taking raising the taxes and maybe they will have a chance. With Toronto’s David Miller taxing us to death to support his ill concived plans and fattening the unions, and Dalton McGuinty wasting that money on bribing unionized teachers, ehalth etc, and the rest of the governments with fat and overpaid bureaucracy what money is left for others? there will be A LOT more poor families in Ontario.  http://www.cbc.ca/canada/toronto/story/2009/12/02/ont-poverty.html )
 
Here is what the Canadian Press reports too
Canadian Stocks Post Biggest Drop Among Developed Markets on Gold’s Plunge
  
Almost all stimulus cash committed: Harper CBC Prime Minister Stephen Harper released the government’s fourth quarterly report on its economic recovery plan to reporters shortly after arriving in China on Wednesday On Monday, Statistics Canada reported that the economy expanded 0.1 per cent in the third quarter, the first quarterly gain since the third quarter of 2008. The 0.1 per cent figure reported by Statistics Canada is in quarterly terms. On an annualized basis, the economy grew at a 0.4 per cent pace in the July-September quarter. More like $62-billion shot in dark. Building bridges only give contractors jobs. Building water-mains and sewers only gives contractors jobs. Building roads and infrastructure only gives contractors jobs and civil, public servants.. but what about the rest of us? Committed does not mean SPENT! Time and time again we’ve seen governments promise to do something and even make provisions for it in the budget, but fail to carry through and actually do something. and how much of that stimulus money is going to non CON ridings.. only $ 18 Billion at most ( if all spent ) is  stimulus. The other $ 40 Billion is Harper  cutting GST & corporate income taxes and his  general mismanagement of public funds.  All of the news should report some real facts along with the PMO press releases they merely parrot.What I don’t understand is why more people are not more alarmed by his refusal to explain how much has been put out the door. He only ever comments on how much is committed, and refuses to give numbers on the amount spent.He even refuses to give the numbers on the amount spent to the Parliamentary Budget Officer, the man Harper appointed to examine this kind of program to ensure that it was being done efficiently and in a transparent manner.Just another example about how the Conservative “accountable and transparent” only refers to other people. I sure hope that the 850 thousand that are unemployment get jobs …Over the past few weeks many more have also become unemployed …..Lots of worries for these folks ..
 
 
 
 
The Canadian economy in reality supposedly crawled out of the so called by the Conservatives a  no recession in the third quarter of this  year but remains weaker than most had  been falsely predicted, expected and the jobless rate is expected to continue rising for months to come. The Canadian government spending pledged after the economy dropped into recession is a  two-year C$47 billion  stimulus package, and infrastructure projects  account for C$16 billion of the total If all funding for these initiatives has not been allocated by this date, the government will reallocate funding to other initiatives or allow funds to lapse,” the Department of Finance said in its report. It did not say what other projects the money might be spent on. Funds have been committed on more than 12,000 projects, and of those, 8,000 have begun, it said. The government considers a project underway as soon as it has been put up for tender; it does not mean work has physically begun. The Liberals say that, as of September, only about 12 per cent of the stimulus projects had actually started. The federal government must negotiate funding with provincial and municipal governments and estimates that when all levels of government spending are included, the funding committed for stimulus measures will total C$62 billion per year for 2 years. ,” Liberal finance critic John McCallum said  that “The government won’t tell us how many jobs have been created … presumably because with only 7 pct of the projects under way, very few jobs have been created, “Just because over 90 per cent of the money has been committed, doesn’t mean people are actually at work,”  “They do not tell us how many jobs have been created. We know they know, because the municipalities are required to submit that information, but they won’t tell us.”  Government officials have said they do not track the number of jobs created by the stimulus program, even though one of the key goals of the program is to put people back to work. But the Liberals have produced documents showing that the government does collect such data – it just hasn’t released it. The federal stimulus program is comprised of some permanent measures such as tax cuts, along with temporary ones such as infrastructure spending and providing liquidity to unlisted financial institutions. An independent investigation by The Canadian Press has shown that stimulus money was not targeted at areas of high unemployment. Rather, it has favoured ridings held by Tory MPs. The Harper administration has staked its fiscal reputation on the ability of the stimulus plan to quickly create or maintain almost 200,000 jobs across Canada but most of these will be in the civil services firstly  it seems.. Under an agreement negotiated with the Liberals last spring, Conservative Finance Minister Flaherty is obliged to submit quarterly updates on how the stimulus program is working.   But the parliamentary budget officer has complained that the updates released so far are so lacking in detail and inconsistent in their format that they are not very useful.

Stop. Note. Being unemployed in today’s recession is still a very serious issue, it means  a possible loss of one’s health next as well, it means spending one’s savings, it means hardships in reality.

Now, with hundreds of thousands of jobless Ontarians, Albertans, etc. struggling on inadequate employment insurance and welfare benefits … One in eight Ontario children live in families that can’t afford fresh fruits and vegetables every day, or can’t afford to replace a broken appliance or share the occasional meal with friends or family.

Rise of EI claims in BC among highest in Canada Vancouver Sun – The number of beneficiaries collecting employment insurance in B.C. in September jumped by 11,280, or 12.8 per cent, to 99,360. That total number of recipients is now 130 per cent above this time last year, the second-biggest rise in the country, according to a report released Tuesday by Statistics Canada. Nationally, the number of people collecting EI jumped more than seven per cent in September. Regular EI recipients grew by 54,300 to 818,020 during the month, with biggest increases coming in Alberta, B.C. and Ontario. EI beneficiaries in Ontario increased by 22,520, or nine per cent, to 271,680,. National and provincial data is seasonally adjusted, while data from cities is not. The national September total is up 63.5 per cent since peak employment in October 2008. The biggest increases in September EI benefits were among young people under 25. Since October 2008, Canada has lost 400,000 jobs, and the unemployment rate has risen to 8.6 per cent.  Employment started to grow again in August and September — adding a total of 57,700 positions — but that growth came to an abrupt end last month when another 43,200 jobs were chopped.NUMBER OF EI RECIPIENTSTraditionally the  lay offs tend to be around Christmas, at year ends, before the next years’ Corporate budget is started. The actual unemployment rate is higher, since the new people on social aid are not included as unemployed..

Beneficiaries as of September, with increase from August:

British Columbia 99,360 +12.8%

Alberta 71,910 +25.0%

Saskatchewan 14,580 +12.3%

Manitoba 16,630 +14.0%

Ontario 271,680 +9.0%

Quebec 209,840 +1.1%

New Brunswick 37,740 +1.3%

Nova Scotia 34,450 +1.4%

P.E.I. 8,800 +1.6%

N.L. 43,410 unchanged

Canada 818,020 +7.1%

Yes, actions speak louder than words. It’s time we stopped pretending that Stephen Harper is a “Conservative” like Canada’s authentic traditional “Tories.” They are not behaving at all like the party of John A. Macdonald, John Diefenbaker, Robert Stanfield or even Brian Mulroney.  In fact, they are an oil company-sponsored adaptation of Alberta’s Reform Party with a few former “Progressive” Conservatives (REJECTS) who had no where else to go.  Canada’s genuine Progressive Conservatives would never sabotage a global climate change agreement or try to remove equal funding for other parties. They believed in a vibrant democracy and a Canada that is truly a “model for the World.” ” D.S. Barclay, Georgetown  http://www.thestar.com/comment/article/735486

“The federal Conservative Party and the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario have both shown a distain for their respective houses that has reached an all time low. Let’s look at the prime minister first. We have the possible torture of Afghan prisoners after we handed them over to the Afghans. Instead of taking a serious look at what was happening, the government decided to attack and discredit the messenger. It went on a campaign to smear the reputation of Richard Colvin who was brave enough to report his concerns. Stephen Harper also went after opposition parties, accusing them of not supporting the troops because they dared to question the government over these allegations. This is when they hit an all-time low. Harper is quoted as saying (while talking to some troops surrounded by Canadian flags), “when some in the political arena do not hesitate before throwing the most serious of allegations at our men and women in uniform, based on the most flimsy of evidence, remember Canadians from coast to coast are proud of you, I am proud of you and I stand beside you.”  So, if you dare to question the government on its handling of issues in Afghanistan, you don’t support the troops? He is ducking behind the troops, using them to make his tenuous point, trying to deflect us from the issue at hand. It is a disgraceful, cowardly way to make a point.” I hold faint hope that we will return to the days of all parties being concerned about Canadians, instead of their antics to maintain and get power at all costs. It’s disheartening.  http://www.thesudburystar.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=2211286

PM represents a fundamental shift in priorities – Prime Minister Stephen Harper, a “values” and fiscal conservative, shares the Thatcher-Reagan goal of reducing any and all forms of taxation on business. The goal is to use the state/corporate nexus to generate rather than redistribute wealth even if this results in ballooning deficits and debts. What is at stake over the HST is the redistribution of taxing powers between the federal and provincial governments. Harper’s goal is to reduce federal spending on health and social programs by transferring full control over these programs along with taxing revenues to the provinces. Ottawa will then use its reduced taxing and spending powers to focus on defence, infrastructure renewal, and to fund the expansion of corporate Canada. This is a clear example of this neoconservative shift of priorities from the well-being of individual Canadians to the well-being of corporate Canada.  http://www.thestar.com/comment/article/735489

HARPER BETTER STOP BITING THAT PEOPLE WHO ELECTED HIM FOR THEY WILL NEXT ALSO KICK HIM OUT OF OFFICE LIKE THEY DID BRIAN MULRONEY NOW TOO

NEW CONSERVATIVES? THEY ARE NO DIFFERENT OVER THE OTHER OLD PARTIES THEY BASH.. BY BASHING OTHERS THEY HOPE THE REST DO NOT SEE WHAT THEY ARE LIKE NOW. FOOLING ONLY THEMSELVES

MAKING IDOLS OF BIG COPRORATIONS AND NEGLECTING ABUSING THE CITIZENS IS ALSO STILL BIG UNACCEPTABLE SINS IN GOD’S EYES.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Too many Doctors are mainly selfish, self centered, want to get rich fast

 
FOR TOO MANY DOCTORS 300,000 $ PER YEAR IS NOT ENOUGH FOR THE.. WHAT GREED.
.
 You may find it hard to believe but I have talked to 100 Doctors face to face more than once and most women were the better Doctors. I have for years often encountered useless male Doctors too. The University of Montreal Hospitals were some of the best I have encountered.
 .
I have often seen it myself, too many   McGill doctors wrongfully in no hurry to help the really sick persons. Now some of these clearly bad persons  who still cannot face the negative reality about themselves, the ongoing especially bad nurses and doctors, lie and try to divert my  truth by saying that  I hate doctors and nurses, so well let me make it very clear I do rightfully hate each of the  bad, pretentious, lazy, no good doctors and nurses who are not doing their jobs properly and  are causing other people to continue to suffer   as a result.. so should we all..   and they should always be fired ASAP.. Hospital administrators included. Is that clear enough for them now? That includes now also all bad cops, bad politicians, bad church pastors, bad news reporters now  too.. Where is the real McGill Dr House when you need him? Just a TV fiction still!
The parents Lisa Guerin and Jonathan Hope  of a 16-month-old girl who died  are guilty of failing to provide the necessities of life, a judge ruled The two were ordered to stay in custody until March 19, 2010 when a date will be set for sentencing. This also applies to all bad doctors and nurses, Health ministers and administrators  now too  who fail to adequately look after any sick patient.
 .
I recommend reading this   before something happens to your health and you end up in the hospital. I read somewhere that almost half of us will have an inpatient stay in the hospital prior to the end of our lives. I don’t think we can ever be too prepared for something that can have such an impact on our lives, or the life of someone that we love.
Rich doctors Canada wide seem to like to take long religious holidays, most of them clearly have no religion  too,  especially at Christmas time.  As a result there is a drastic hospital Clinic, Emergency room  services  reduction and even closures in some part of the country because  there is no doctor to fill the shift. 
.
SUMMERSIDE  PEI – Temporary acute care bed closures will take place. The Department of Health has planned some temporary bed closures in hospitals across the Island as part of an annual Doctors slowdown during the holiday season. Emergency services, including emergency surgical services and day surgeries, will remain fully operational during the holiday season. Elective surgical services will be reduced for a two-week period at both Prince County and Queen Elizabeth Hospitals.  
.
Any Doctors also who are putting patients in danger,  have a lack of accountability , are over-billing for work is always still inacceptable too. 
 . 
 Some hospital departments are well runed and others are not, the quality of service it varies seriously depending on the departmental manager as well. I am chronic believer of the “sit, wait, watch, see philosophy”.. and I like to sit and look as to what is really happening in police stations, hospitals, doctor’s offices, emergency clinics, government offices, churches too.. it is really an eye opener and a learning experience.. Now after being a half a century in Canadian Hospitals I thought I saw it all.. Until I sat this week visiting a person in a serious sick, troubled persons ward at the Pointe Claire, West island Hospital .. and for the first time I also had no complaints yet… but praise for I really could not believe what I saw, the real extra effort that the medical, support staff gave to all the patients, some of them very elderly too. Now if all Hospital departments were like this.. it would be heavenly. Some Hospital departments are run like the pits of hell still too. Next a week later I found out the whole truth at the LGH  How  they do provide a minimum of doctors, nurses services .. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/11/hospital-deaths-account-for-half-of-deaths-annually/
 .
You’ve read the headlines, the ones that end in disbelief, disgust.  Wall Streeters who brought us the economic meltdown through their own greed are next rewarded with multi-billion dollar bailouts rich enough to float a mid-sized country . Meanwhile also many of  the fat cats get fatter on the teats of the taxpayers, not a few of  them too. Now we also find out some of the windfall wizards used their aid to pay off creditors while ensuring the bonus gravy train was stoked and leaving the station and some of the top the executives gave themselves big raises, bonuses  for it still. Most of the money from many non profit institutions, corporations, never gets to help others. Even many medical Doctors, are selfish, self serving. We hear about big corporations still gouging the citizens with their high, unreasonable  prices too. We again hear about big corruptions , thefts still going on by our civil and public servants, at the federal, provincial and municipal levels in Canada  and you often now do wonder why it still goes on? The answer is very simple, for you have not cried, demanded justice loud enough for many to hear. Do so now too. Contact now the news editors, governments , police today. Even again.    
 .
 Hospitals now wrongfully, immorally using their resources, personnel to recommend private clinics run by greedy, selfish, self centered, charge card happy  doctors is unacceptably wrong and put a stop to it now, today.
.
Fire their bad medical instructors for a start too.. Money hungry, greedy, self centered doctors are all unacceptable still too. The British saw next the end of their World wide British empire when they had stopped providing Medicare to India.. Now who real cares about the patient’s good welfare if not the government, or the Hospitals or    the charge happy doctors? What me alone? and not our Health Ministers still?
 .
Canada’s health care in theory but not in practice is supposedly available to all Canadians  of all ages, all nationalities, Canada wide, from sea to sea, needless to say Health care in Canada is not universal and it depends often on   the rich and influential persons, sports celebrities  getting  better services, and depends on local provincial governments, the local institutions, hospitals offering it, and also on the size of the city, populations. Big cities tend to have more expertise that still are not available to all..
 .
It is often a mere waste of time going to a mere local, family doctor if you have a serious illness, he likely would not diagnose it anyway, especially since he does not have the medical knowledge, expertise, access to the proper medical tests. The best place to go to is the emergency clinic at a hospital, but they too will try to discourage you by insuring long patients waiting lines… cause no one wants still  to work too hard, not the hospital administrators, ombudsmen, support personnel.. but they all still want to falsely keep their knobs, jobs and their pay it seems.
 .
Local Doctors and Hospital seem to   have an absolute minimal supervision, management, and certainly are not cost-effective, and then you wonder why some stupid provincial government that is pouring money into pails full of holes complains the cost  of Medicare is going up significantly. They can blame their own lack of supervision , even doctors, nurses, hospitals, civil and public servants, politicians, police, governments, others all still need to be monitored, supervised in reality
.

A poorly managed Hospital and personnel is still always rightfully unacceptable even if they are McGill Hospitals.

.

 I have often been wondering why the Montreal McGill Hospitals tend to provide the basic , or pretentious services, it is cause the real doctors, professionals, self serving, greedy,  money hungry doctors  now are trying to make a buck in the private sector and are generally not available to all, even though Canada supposedly only has a fully public accessible Medicare system, and the Hospital directors who generally are doctors too go along with this too.. conflicting self interest
.

 I also here really could not help but notice that the aspiring, ambitious doctors in training work much harder over those who have graduated and who now tend to sit back on their laurels. 

.

I spent today over half of day at my the McGill  RVH clinic just to get my medical   test and a medical  consultations, from 8:30 am to 2: pm. During this process I sat for 3 hours at the  departmental clinic reception waiting  3 hours for my one  test. The reception had now received many phone calls for many a Doctor ‘s appointment, and they next were all generally told the waiting period was 4 months at least, till mid April, but if they now next  paid 30 dollars extra they can see the same  doctors now, two of them  at their  private clinic, likely within two weeks. The doctors only attend the Hospital clinic twice a month  as well. Meanwhile they apparently do have a personal doctors office, and a secretary and a private examination room at the hospital all paid by the citizens,  This is what Medicare has unacceptable become. A two tiered health care system.
.
 
It is an undeniable, unacceptable  fact that some people who cannot afford extra billing do without medical care, I myself now here  saw a few people walk away from the reception appointment desk when they were told about extra billing fees. It is a perversity that the Doctors and dentists education is mostly covered by tax payers, and generous donors and yet the Doctors next try gouging us all for more money, the McGill Doctors especially.
.
 
So does the Quebec and federal health Ministers still want me to write all this up to the Hospital ombudsman, who do not reply to me, etc.,  while they still  gets paid for doing nothing here too?
.
 
.
The governments have basically passed down the responsibility of the management of the health care systems to the individual hospitals, who basically have no  interest in seeing, managing medical  costs reductions, or improving their medical performances, rather it is to their sole interest that the gravy train flows abundantly, after all more patients, means more money for Hospital administrators, ombudsmen doctors and nurses and more job guarantees for them too.a-2 Next absurdly the government asked that I manage the health care system personally and I should file a complain with each doctor, Hospital  that I am dissatisfied with, and even supplied me the name and address of their responsible boards. 
.

Me doing now freely all of the governments work with our Ministers, civil and public servants get paid, rather for stealing the taxpayer’s money.b-1 Firstly I have said many times already  that anyone going to a charge happy private  Medical doctor when you are seriously ill is a waste of them, for generally as I have often experiences now as well he or she  are not adequately  qualified nor does he have the necessity equipment to diagnose quickly and accurately  the problem never mind deal quickly  next with  it’s solution.

If you are seriously ill you still do have to go to a Hospital, triage, the emergency department.. cause they have all the medical equipment there need for the serious testing’s.

b-2 Some times they there can help you at the triage, emergency and some times not. Mind you are not insured of immediate success here cause you are put often on a waiting list even often next at least 6 months or more.

.

I have also been waiting one year to see a new, knee specialist at the McGill Montreal General Hospital already.

.
Now I have BEEN TO SEVEN  hospitals in the last 20 years I have also directly now  already directly dealt with 3 Montreal Hospital ombudsmen already because of  their poor medical delivery services, and the bigger the Hospital the less they do even  care about your complaint, and the less likely you or I will even get it dealt with too
.
No Hospital here on its own now had provided adequate follow-up, medical services to me, rather I was forced to complain about the poor services, and only in one hospital did the complaint help. Now if I should continue to do the health Minister’s job should I also not get his pay now too?
.

Friday evening the RVH ombudsman finally returns my call and  now passed my file to someone else.. I will see what the results next are here too.

.

An  administrative doctor from McGill next had called me and  had falsely tried to justify the RVH receptionist  sending almost all of the patients to see the very same doctors at a private clinic where they will be charged more for the same service by saying all Hospital are overcrowded.. he must have thought I was really stupid.. for I have been employed as an engineering contract manager and if the fabrication shop gave the same false excuses for their late product deliveries in reality they next went out of business, because rightfully in the private sector clients did not accept such lame excuses. The same clearly stupid, pretentious Doctor had asked if my problem that I  have now had for over 6 months had cured itself since last week when I saw the RVH doctor? Hoping naively he would not have to work? or just dumb? If miracles mow here were so common why would we need the doctors  ehh?Nice to be in the public service where you can take it easy and blame another department for your own lack of real, viable productivity. And now how stupid do they really think we are? Fire rightfully very bad persons that I have dealt with so far too here. MEANWHILE I AM STILL WAITING HERE FOR POSITIVE RESULTS TOO.

.

I have contacted now 3  separate useless McGill Hospital  Ombudsman as suggested by the Quebec Government, under the direction of the Quebec premier’s office too.. and I got now 2 useless results  so far:
 
– I phoned the Montreal General  Hospital  Ombudsman to complain about waiting over one year to see a knee specialist. and the person claiming to be the Ombudsman said that one to two years wait was acceptable, normal, and I said what were they doing about it cause it was rightfully not acceptable for me. She next told me she was not the Ombudsman but she would pass me to the Ombudsman, so I immediately by phone talked to the real Ombudsman next  and I told her the same thing and I wanted to know what they were doing about it.. she said a Hospital committee, Board of directors  was discusing the issue with the Quebec government on being able to hire more staff.. I said I wanted specific actions here. She said she would mail a complaint form.  I told here my complain was very simple, one line, posted on the internet for the whole world to read, I have been waiting over one year to see a knee specialist.. she was not interested in what was posted on the net, she started to get personal and lied that I was making a persona threat against her, I told her she was a liar, distorter who had failed to deal with my complaint firstly still.. I told her my additional complaint was many McGill Medical doctors are pretenders, the pretend they will look after you but fail to do this adequately based on my real experience with 4 McGill Hospitals to date. I get better service with other University’s  Doctors. She suggested I go to another Hospital and I told her rightfully asked her to deal with my complaint instead, and she said good-bye. I rightfully want more that just a complaint form being done here. I told her I would follow this up with the Quebec government, news media too. I got useless response like this directly from provincial cabinet ministers many years ago now and I never accepted it rightfully so why would I accept such poor services, poor actions here too? The Quebec government in writing had said to me this was all the Hospital fault, and the Hospital says it the Quebec’s governments fault, and I get caught in the meddle.. unacceptable.
 .
– I also recently had phoned the Royal Victoria Hospital  Ombudsman to complain about   :  Why secretaries were using McGill Hospital time and resources to recommend private clinics
  
 .
The McGill Ombudsmen, related McGill  Doctors response was, is like musical chairs, every time you talk to someone you now do get a different lie, spin, distortion.. The RVH Ombudsman who had finally  phoned me and said she was going to have another doctor do the follow up.   Musical chairs, or buck passing medical services? THE RVH ombudsman here so far was the best that I have dealt with. I have deal with 2 other McGill Hopsital Ombudsman too.
 .
Now I have been wasting my time, even given the medical run around by 2 useless McGill Ophthalmologists from the McGill Lachine Hospital and the Royal Victoria Hospital over one year now about my swollen eye problem, and I had contacted the RVH Ombudsman about it now too many times.. their useless buck passing reply was finally the problem is mine, Not happy with McGill doctors go elsewhere,  the problem is mine and and not theirs and there is nothing they can do about it now for I am on my own. RVH useless Dr Morin . But well there is something I can do about it.. I can post what McGill doctors, hospitals, ombudsman  and our Health Ministers are really like often on the net for the whole world to read often too.
 .
 My McGill  Royal Victoria Hospital  DR OH Ophthalmologist has been a personal gem.. she has gone out of the way to find out why my eyes are swollen, with a complete eyes exam every 3 months.. she had helped my father but here she could  not deal with my solution.
 .
  
In Montreal I have been to the English and French Hospitals and I can certainly say that the McGill run Hospitals provide some of the worst nursing, Doctor services as well.. the RVH, JGH, Lachine Hospital, and  Lakeshore General hospital included.. One rotten apple spoils the whole basket.. deal with it..  In contrast in a Quebec French hospitals where the doctors are also from the University of Montreal, the doctors are persistent and will continue to assist to determine my problem.. unlike McGill. In the old days they had at least now made a pretence to aid you when you made a complaint. Now these days they seem in no hurry to get back to you, or they  misfile the complaint, buck pass it, or just deny it altogether at the McGill Hospitals mostly it seems.. The Unacceptable Useless RVH Dr Morin too.  It seems that McGill University Doctors take on an attitude that it is condescending for them to serve us any of us, we all should be subservient and really should be grateful that they have agreed to help us. The Governor General Michaelle Jean delivers speech criticizing rampant materialism  has delivered a speech critical of unrestrained market forces in a speech at McGill University. Jean told an audience in Montreal  that life  shouldn’t simply be about making money, but about helping people.  The Governor General says market forces are extremely influential, and can risk drowning out such values as the common good. ” “We are living in a world in which spaces for critical debate, reflection and civic action are increasingly being assailed by the alluring sirens of fleeting gratification and cultural conformity,” she said. “More and more, impersonal market forces are influencing public life, while notions of the common good and altruistic action are being challenged by an ethic of ‘everyone for himself or for his clan.’  by ” saying no to a world in which our obsession with profit makes us turn a blind eye to suffering” and where “prosperity is detrimental to our environment,” Jean said.
 .
A report released 10/26/09 by Thomson Reuters, parent company of the Reuters news service, stated that the current U.S. health system wastes  in a year, one-third of the current healthcare expenditure. The report cites the following as sources of wasteful spending:
  • Overuse of antibiotics and lab tests to protect against malpractice lawsuits (Pennsylvania State University estimates that as much as 91 percent of our nation’s healthcare expenditures are related to defensive medicine);
  • significant Fraud  in Medicare claims  ;
  • Administrative inefficiency and redundant paperwork;
  • Medical mistakes;
  • Preventable conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes

.

McGill University, one of the top ranking medical school in North American attracts many American students and competes with top American universities. The numbers of Americans enrolling in Canadian colleges has risen around 90 percent over the past four years.  But how many American students want to attend a medical University that wrongfully, and clearly abuses the local citizens of Montreal Canada?  cause these clearly selfish self-centered little local doctors cannot see the whole picture, how their poor actions, inactions affect the health care of many now, next. McGill is making a fortune on fees for it’s out-of-town medical students  it seems and uses them in their hospitals to a point that the rest of the medical staff, resources cannot help the local people of Montreal now adequately too.

.

There are bad and good doctors now too. A Toronto doctor is facing a disciplinary hearing over allegations he approved special meal allowances for people on welfare and disability programs according to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.  Dr. Roland Wong,  said he continues to approve applications for the special diet but only if he believes patients have an underlying medical condition that qualifies them for the financial supplement.  “Today, I signed maybe five, four,” he said. “Sometimes more, depends.”  He accused the auditor general of having a very “slanted view” of the program, and suggested he should be looking instead at the woefully inadequate support payments paid to people in need.  Wong said he wasn’t overly concerned about the disciplinary hearing because it was based on a complaint laid against him by a municipal councillor.  “This is a case of politicians against a physician, not the patient against the physician,” he said.  The Special Diet Allowance provides up to $250 per month to a person on social assistance who requires special foods for such conditions as diabetes.  Councillor Doug Holyday said  . “This can’t go on.”  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/torsun/091209/canada/doc_faces_probe_over_dietary_payouts 
.
 
Quebec and other provinces have no such adequate program and why?
.
 
Now  about doctors, Staff being allowed to recommend private clinics, how immoral are they, this is a clear conflict of interest, and a bad  lack of incentive to improve the Hospital services.

.

 Alberta’s health care has been poorly managed, by health Ministers and Premiers too. Bad manager, Ex Premier of Alberta Ralph Klein gave in and gave a generous pay raise to the doctors, and this is what predictably  happened next! Ralph got what he deserved, he got booted out.
 .
I had also had helped to fire a pretentious previous Albertan health Minister Gary Marr who used outside consultants to do his work that he was paid for doing.. Another Albertan Con artist
 . 
A presentation made by Alberta Health Services in October suggests the province’s health-care deficit could grow by as much as $1 billion next year. In an online document called “The Great Alberta Experiment: First Hundred Days,” three top representatives from Alberta Health Services outlined how the province will face an additional deficit of $500 million to $1 billion in 2010-11 before any cost-cutting measures are taken into account.Yet Alberta Health Services will actually run out of cash in February 2010 before the province releases its spring budget, according to the document presented to the HealthCare Leaders’ Association of B.C. http://www.vancouversun.com/health/Health+system+quickly+going+broke/2288601/story.html
 .
Health Minister Ron Liepert must resign his cabinet post. He has lost the confidence of Albertans with his botched handling of the H1N1 vaccine program. The buck ultimately stops with Liepert, who sent Albertans grievously mixed messages, and deflected the blame for the long lineups and this week’s clinic closures, while backtracking and flip-flopping on policy statements. He even pointed an accusing finger at the media for chronicling the confusion he is ultimately responsible for. http://www.calgaryherald.com/opinion/editorials/Health+minister+must+resign/2174525/story.html

Crooks, con men, pretenders, imposters, the bad persons  like to pretend, delude themselves  that no one reads my blogs find out  that when some others are made aware of the facts they do act upon it appropriately too,  as many found out next the hard way. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves everyone’s best interest still too

This also offers a Canadian window into the state’s overwrought preoccupation with making money at all costs, disregarding the citizens concerns too. Sadly Like too many political parties it seems the citizens mainly do not count, their views or needs, desires. they only count on election days. I was once talking to deputy Minister Ken Kowalski of Alberta about this as to why and he replied cause in Alberta they do not pay the taxes. But rather the real reason is the too often lack of respect for the all of citizens still by our leaders, civil and public servants most political parties Canada wide.. Police, RCMP’s unacceptable, poor attitudes towards most of the citizens now as well
 .
Poorly managed, badly scheduled,  self-centered employees too, while one person  takes a coffee break, the rest of the staff and the patients are all delayed.. Doctors tend to be poor managers. In addition to not understanding history, the real fact that bad history repeats itself too,  they often falsely think they have the authority to do anything they please, and no one will see  it, or reap any negative consequences, themselves included. But you are reading about their unacceptable sins already.   
 .
Doctors, Nurses, medical support staff  are human, they too sometimes try to get by with a minimal amount of personal effort, and so as result patients do not always get their proper medical care. A good rule is never to go to a hospital alone, doctors are  afraid of loud mouthed witnesses who can cause them to be sued for mal  practice and cause their mal practice insurance rates to go up significantly..
 .
The pretentious hospital chaplains.. While visiting my father in the hospital In one week I next  saw three fly by church Priests come to visits the sick patients in the hospitals, and they  spend a minute or two with them,  and they really, basically did not much good to any of the patients they had visited. One of these clearly visibly useless  priests visiting a sick patient did not even recognize another member of his own congregation in the same room, and of course he did not even know his name. How the church has become an impersonaliazed show, merely a financial business it seems today.  
 .
 Now the Doctors are still often asked to cure sick person  patients symptoms  whose original cause they are basically unaware off. A decent, good, chaplain can maybe help in this matter by first even  taking the time to know, listen, hear the patient’s original concerns. 
 .
A very elderly patient  arrived in the Hospital emergency, his first visit to a hospital as well, he now could not walk on one leg cause of the extremely severe pain and so he was hospitalized. While in the hospital he next was visited by 5 different doctors and he now was even given separately 5 different diagnostics as to  what he may have. This is common I have experienced  the same thing myself before too. Doctors tend to relate mainly to her own experience,  expertise it seems mostly still and  so basically no doctor had told him what they would do next, they decided safely  they would let time and more reviews take it’s course. This all had seemed to have escalated the patient’s pains and concerns.  Next the same patient now developed severe constipation, headaches, even more pain ,dehydration, severe leg cramps  from now lying in a bed all of the week.  I next had listened and talked to the patient for a few days,  and I told him I could see he was also in  stress, personal anxiety.  The patient  next  had admitted that he was in stress when he had been first unable to walk, because at Christmas time unexpectedly his wife was sent to an convalescent home as she had developed the irreversible Alzheimer disease, and now he had next never been alone and  he never had cooked for himself before this. Now he also as a RESULT OF HIS LEG  PAIN he faced himself an uncertain future, possible operation, and transfer to an old age home or convalescent home. After much listening I told him he had now firstly had likely hurt, strained  his back, due to his wife’s unbeneficial stress, which in turn now now affected his leg.  I FIRST HAD SUGGESTED HE TALK WITH HIS DOCTOR AND GET A BACK PAIN MUSCLE RELAXANT TOO  but NEXT  naturally he refused to believe me. I ALSO NEXT HAD suggested he try out a chiropractor  but  he never had gone to one before. I told him the medical doctors approach would achieve the same results but IT would likely take much longer time using pills. But now even none of the hospital pain killers were now even  helping him at all including morphine because the root causes are not being addressed. Few doctors or nurses will tell a patient directly that t  his sickness is in his own  head, or his own doing now too.  The patient  next called his son  by phone, and his son next had agreed to take him in, after he was released from the hospital. His son next also had agreed with me,  that  the father should next go to a chiropractor doctor, that his problem was likely escalated by the unexpected stress he found himself in? INCIDENTALY NOT EATING THE PROPER FOODS CAN LEAD TO VITAMIN B12 DEFECIENCY AND HELP TO CAUSE BACK PAINS TOO.. SEVERE CRAMPS ARE ALSO OFTEN CAUSED BY NOT DRINKING ENOUGH WATER DAILY
 .
For any condition or ailment   that you’re still dealing with, write down and be prepared to tell the doctor now also  the following:

What caused this condition or ailment for after all an experienced Doctor should be knowledgeable?

  • When was it first diagnosed?
  • How is he now treating it?
  • Has it gotten better or worse?
  • When did the patient  first begin to noticeably improve or worsen?
  • What medication makes it better?
  • What medication makes it worse?
  • What is the Doctor doing now about it?
  • what medication is now  being given ?
  • what tests have been done,?
  •  what were the results of the test?
 .
All pharmacists do note –  Why do we pay so much for drugs? Those price gouging, pretentious pharmacies crying wolf, crying that they are not getting enough profit.. and what a ridiculous approach. When you are a senior like me who has learned that if you take your medicine you will next live longer, and who has also learned that in real life we cannot hope to live adequately without medicine and doctors, I also have had plenty of time to shop in too many drug stores too. I thus  have undeniably have noticed the serious, big price differences for the same items in too many stores. And I know that my local pharmacy has often a 700 percent price mark up on many of  their goods .. yes kinda of  greedy..  I heard the owner recently  of a pharmacy bragging that he was buying medical accessories for 7 dollars and selling them from 70 dollars in his store.

One of the too many false reasons too many patients die in Hospitals is that almost none of the medical staff feel any personal, real, negative repercussions themselves.  One of the best way that I have discovered to get to know what a  person is really like, is work with him  just for one whole day,.. and   what   you now saw next.. lying, bullying, control freak..

Mad Canadian telecomunications giants slug fest

The truth that all of our customers should know by now that we all do lie, Bell, Rogers, Telus is still really unacceptable to all.. prosecute them fully under the full extent of the Law. Honesty and truth in all advertising rightfully demanded

  You’ve read the headlines, the ones that end in disbelief, disgust.  Wall Streeters who brought us the economic meltdown through their own greed are next rewarded with multi-billion dollar bailouts rich enough to float a mid-sized country . Meanwhile also many of  the fat cats get fatter on the teats of the taxpayers, not a few of  them too. Now we also find out some of the windfall wizards used their aid to pay off creditors while ensuring the bonus gravy train was stoked and leaving the station and some of the top the executives gave themselves big raises, bonuses  for it still. Most of the money from many non profit instutions, corporations, never gets to help others. Even many medical Doctors, are selfish, self serving. We hear about big corporations still gouging the citizens with their high, unreasonable  prices too. We again hear about big corruptions , thefts still going on by our civil and public servants, at the federal, provincial and municipal levels in Canada  and you often now do wonder why it still goes on? The answer is very simple, for you have not cried, demanded justice loud enough for many to hear. Do so now too. Contact now the news editors, governments , police today. Even again.
 
 
 
Bell’s Misleading ads  stating its  superior networking claims are based on a selected September 2009 analysis,  and local and not national tests selected ,  which tested the average download speeds, dropped calls and call clarity in only the large urban centres, in comparing the shared Bell network to Rogers. It is not a survey of the customers themselves. 
 
 
 
 

Rogers Wireless operator seeks to strike down it’s competitor’s  Bell false ‘largest, fastest, and most reliable network’ campaign. Mad telecommunication giants slug fest

Rogers lawsuit targets Bell advertising claims   Globe and Mail –   Tuesday, Dec. 01, 2009 3:06PM EST Last updated on Tuesday, Dec. 01, 2009 10:55PM EST  Rogers is now accusing Bell of “false or misleading” advertising with its new campaign. While Bell has about 6.7 million customers remaining on its old network, Rogers points out that it has far fewer customers on the new high-speed network and therefore could not have conducted testing with sufficient traffic to validate any claims of reliability.“We have evidence to deliver to the court that says they are not more reliable than we are, nor are they faster than we are,” said John Boynton, the chief marketing officer of Rogers Wireless.“An empty network is always going to be faster,” noted Iain Grant of the Seaboard Group, a communications and technology consulting firm in Montreal and Toronto. “So I think Rogers’ case has merit.” Rogers further notes that ads boasting “Being with Bell just got better,” create the mistaken impression that all of Bell’s customers will benefit from the new network, not just its new high-speed users.

 

Wireless giants in seasonal slugfest CBC.ca

 

Competition between Canada’s three big cellphone providers during Christmases past has always been ferocious, but the spirit of the season this year is becoming downright ugly. Rogers Communications Inc., BCE Inc. and Telus Corp. have entangled themselves in a web of lawsuits and countersuits in recent weeks over which company possesses the “best” or “most reliable” wireless network in the land. Considering what is at stake, though, the legal actions may be warranted. Rogers, the country’s largest wireless provider by number of subscribers, sued BCE’s Bell Mobility in a B.C. court over its claim to own the “largest, fastest and most-reliable” cellphone network in Canada, seeking an immediate injunction on the rival’s current ad campaign.“We’re filing that [Bell’s ads] are false and misleading,” said John Boynton, executive vice-president of marketing at Rogers. The ads, which boast that “Being with Bell just got better,” trumpet the company’s newly installed network technology, called HSPA, or high-speed packet access. 

 

Wireless in court: Rogers goes after Bell ITWorld Canada  This is only the first round of the wireless war. Two new wireless companies are about to start service to increase the competition: Toronto-based DAVE Wireless Inc., will operate in many major Canadian cities, and Public Mobile Inc., which will do business in Toronto and Montreal. Quebecor Inc.’s Videotron cable division, which is already in the wireless business by reselling spectrum from Rogers, bought its own spectrum at last summer’s AWS auction and will be better able to take on Bell and Rogers in Quebec.

 

 
 
MobileSyrup.com –  Here is why Rogers is going after Bell:
– We are challenging Bell’s claim and asking the Court stop Bell from using false and misleading messages in its advertisements– Consumers need to know that Bell has no valid support to claim faster speed and more reliability on a network that has virtually no customers and no proven track record on this new network. Bell is falsely misleading customers about the size, the speed and the reliability of its network

1. The vast majority of Bell customers are still using an old CDMA network and aren’t enjoying the benefits of the new HSPA network, contrary to what is falsely implied in their ads

2. Reliability is not something that can be measured on an empty, unproven network.

3. Even Telus has recognized that the Rogers network is more reliable than the Telus EVDO network still being used by the vast majority of Telus customers. The Court in BC also recognized this advantage enjoyed by Rogers over the past years

4. We’re confident that once Bell and Telus have customers on their new network, we will demonstrate through rigorous testing that we are still more reliable

Rogers Wireless executive vice-president John Boynton said “We have our own data to suggest that they’re not the most reliable and we will show up to court with our own data,. These are ludicrous made up statements they don’t mean anything and there’s no testing for the words powerful and best”.

So…the question get’s asked again Canada – who in your mind is the most reliable carrier?

and what an unbiased reporting of the matter? clearly unprofessional
 
It is an established, undeniable fact that at least 40 percent off Bell’s present, past customers have  been dissatisfied with the actual customer support they have received in Canada relating to cell phones, internet services, billings, etc. That is why many of them have gone elsewhere even to Videotron, Acanac, etc. 
 
AND ANYONE WHO HAS TRIED TO DEAL WITH BELL SERVICE, COMPLAINT DEPARTMENT KNOWS HOW OBSTINATE, STONE WALLING, UNHELPFUL THEY MOSTLY CAN BE TOO..
 
The lying spin doctors at  the news media, not just the Canada’s major telecommunications firms are now also busy working too .. Bell also does not discriminate, show partiality, it seems ready to abuse anyone.. Competition between Telus, Bell and Rogers, which control about 90 per cent of Canada’s wireless market, intensified when Bell and Telus upgraded their wireless networks, enabling them to sell Apple’s coveted iPhone for the first time earlier this month. Network speed doesn’t matter to regular cell phone or internet  users,   because it makes no difference for voice usage, but it becomes crucial to the smartphone experience when using bandwidth intensive programs, and for persons who  like to view, download multimedia on the net..
 
Our monopolistic Canadian wireless carriers are engaging in a war of words over even false words over speeds, reliable, etc., Telus. Rogers, Bell spin doctors all unrealistically say they expect to make loads more money gouging the customers with extra fees.. Dream on. Canadians are known to be cheap for a start even.
 
There is more ample evidence on the net  that many Canadians are dissatisfied with the actual services they do or have received from  Rogers, Bell, Videotron, Shaw, Telus,  Canada’s major, Monopolistic Media,  Telecommunications firms.   Many Canadians can see clearly that Rogers, Bell, Videotron, Shaw, Telus  they all only care about one thing.. maximum profits.. motivated by maximum greed..  AND ARE OFTEN   GUILTY OF FALSE MISLEADING ADVERTISING AS WELL., they also too often are mostly finding an excuse to charge the customer even for more.. and yes that they have done with firstly their lies, distortions …  sadly also each Corporation tends to  copy the other’s bad business practices it seems and no one cares about integrity or  the citizens, consumer, the CRTC or the governments now included.   
Bell or Bell  Bell Mobility Inc offers “Canada’s largest, fastest, and most reliable network.” amongst  Rogers, Telus????????
  
– Maybe Bell the largest but is Bell even the fastest over Telus? Misleading.. is the fast speed consistent, continually or is this an occasional  peak speed? what actual speed does the consumer get even? try the http://www.acanac.ca/speedtest/
– Bell is the most reliable?.. and what realistic, honest Data do you have for that even now? Does that include  their ISP  internet now too? and Most reliable over whom? the US not included? Do please ditch ‘most reliable network’ claim !!! 
– and what does it mean ” the court is not in a position to ensure compliance” of honest, truthful advertising by any of these firms?
-Misleading still claims of superiority in ads refer to footnotes such as not available all the time or in all parts of Canada still? all SUBJECT TO EXTRA COSTS TOO
 
Merely this is ALL still an UNACCEPTABLY  a FALSE PLAY ON WORDS..

False misleading advertising has long time been made by Telus, Rogers, Bell and others in Canada while the Ostrich federal consumer ddepartment, 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 ?

” its like Satan suing Lucifer cause they don’t have enough room to spread chaos disorder and SCAMS”, ”  “  I wish that all three companies would just fry in hell.
 
 
 

 ” It really is ridiculous that these companies and the people who run them have to sink this low to try to make each other look bad.” Just like our bad Canadian Conservative Politicians now too. ” Yep, but, it doesn’t matter who has the fastest. Neither one of them is offering us 21 mbps devices, and none have been tested to their potential.”
