DO YOU BELIEVE THE CRAP THEY HAND OUT STILL?
The spate of several allegations over potentially illegal fundraising dogging the Charest government, allvery embarrassing scandals has already sent the Liberal Quebec Premier Jean Charest’s popularity spiraling downward in recent months.The opposition want a public inquiry that would examine the fundraising of a governing Liberal party they call corrupt. They also want more details on the $75,000 separate salary that the Liberal party has paid Charest for years, including information about how that money is raised. The Opposition says the premier should earn his living from the government alone – and not from party donors. One reporter, during a news conference , asked what the difference was between the Quebec family minister MNA Tony Tomassi using a corporate credit card and Charest collecting a separate salary that the Liberal party raises from donors.
Embattled Quebec Premier Jean Charest and his bad government are embroiled in a series of controversies over influence-peddling now have held a rare all smoke and mirrors Sunday cabinet meeting to officially adopt a false austerity measures, even to clearly try shift debate away from the too many scandals that have plagued this Quebec government . By 2013-2014. the government said it will cut operations and administrative costs by 10 per cent in departments and agencies. It will also immediately slash advertising, training and travel costs by 25 per cent. The meeting took place amid rumours of an impending cabinet shuffle. The also still useless province’s economic development minister Clement Gignac, my own local MLA has yet to even reply to a single related mail of mine.. Several recent polls have shown the Quebec’s government’s approval ratings rigthfully as hitting rock bottom, due also to the allegations by former justice minister Marc Bellemare that Liberal fundraisers had a say in nominating provincial judges and Jean Charest ‘s party’s bad ties to the construction industry scandals, corruptions still and the Quebec’s government’s allocation of subsidized day-care spots, which the Opposition claims tends to favour Liberal donors. Immoral Quebec Liberal Finance Minister Raymond Bachand has promised the Quebec government will be raising revenues through a series of tax and fee hikes, including a $200 annual health deductible making the poor people pay heavily for this Government’s ministers poor acts, incompetence.
Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.
People in leadership office do have to face higher penalties as an example now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included are always to be exemplary in behavior, conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary judged, prosecuted for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks. Too many police officers are now too often guilty of their most serious neglect of public trust and their duty. The related truth is that neither an independent police investigation, a new police commissioner, a promised provincial or federal investigation, or just more politicians promises too often still will not bring the much needed justice. All of the governments can prohibit the initial and further employment of any known racists for any jobs, and can punish them for their racists acts, views. Police managers continue to promise the reforming of bad cops and the bad cops keep killing, abusing innocent persons. The possible retaining of bad police officers is always anyway a false myth. What thus is always needed is the real the dismissal, criminal prosecution, of the guilty cops. So where is it? Speeding is not the main cause of car accidents, impaired driving is, but too many cops are alcoholics it seems who wrongfully do sympathize with drunks and as a result do not arrest drunks all year
Besides the interns, medical doctors and nurses in training the rest of the doctors and nurses are never supervised, they tend to be free to do what they want and are rarely held accountable or cost effective by the hospital administrators themselves who do too readily give themselves even large raises and perks, nice offices.. and then the government says it is concerned about the rising health care costs, that are for sure running away, when the clearly still useless Health Minister, in Quebec as well, all he can do, suggest is to raise taxes again and again.. AND this is what is definitely known as really bad management, the governments putting more money into pail full of holes still!
Since I clearly, openly do not write to win political or any popularity support I know you will also find some shocking truths in my expose of Canadian Life in reality even how the immoral, cheap Quebec government wrongfully allows elderly patients to die by not force feeding them or providing them any depression counseling.
I personally in Montreal Quebec now have the last 4 months dealt directly with the Quebec social service workers, in regard to even my elderly senior father and real workers and you cannot call them that at all, try useless functionaries, fraud artists, incompetents, pretenders..
“Shortly before her death in 2004, retired music teacher and Richmond resident Phyllis Taylor had Lawyer David William Blinkhorn draw up a will to distribute her $260,000 estate.A niece was supposed to get $5,000, while a second person, a young woman, was to benefit from a $25,000 education trust fund. The rest of the money was to be shared between the Richmond Hospital Foundation, the SPCA, the Salvation Army and a scholarship fund for students “of British, Scottish or Irish descent who reside in Richmond. ”The Phyllis Taylor Scholarship Fund, as it was to be named, was supposed to be funded with a minimum of $100,000 from the estate. Instead, according to the audit, most of the money ended up in Blinkhorn’s own bank accounts. The two people named in her will got what they were entitled to and the hospital foundation received $25,000. However, it appears there was no money for the scholarship fund, the SPCA or the Salvation Army. By January of 2006, there was only $6.62 left in the Taylor trust account. When a divorcing couple deposited $58,000 from the sale of the family home in a trust fund controlled by Blinkhorn, he used the money to pay himself and other clients instead. A teenager who suffered disfiguring scars in a motor vehicle accident never got the $21,000 in ICBC settlement money from a Blinkhorn-controlled trust fund. Blinkhorn also took money from a visually impaired client, $9,000 that was supposed to help pay a loan for renovations to make the client’s home safer for a blind person.” http://www.bclocalnews.com/surrey_area/surreyleader/news/91952554.html
Lawyer David William Blinkhorn, has been disbarred, banned from being a lawyer and fined $37,000 for professional misconduct, taking money, stealing from clients, from HIS client accounts AND for lying. tHE Law Society of B.C., the body that regulates and licenses all lawyers in the province, calls Blinkhorn’s conduct “disgraceful and dishonourable.” The law society panel also said Blinkhorn admitted he knew what he was doing when he did it, and that he knew it was wrong.Over a period of seven years from 1999 to 2006, Blinkhorn moved money from client bank accounts without telling them and without keeping records of the transactions, the society ruling report says. A forensic accounting audit ordered by the society shows several client accounts were repeatedly raided by Blinkhorn. “…stealing and lying is exactly what he did, repetitively, for an extended period of time,” BUT DID HE STILL RETURN THE STOLEN MONEY?
IT ALL NOW MAKES HIM SOUND NOW LIKE TOO MANY POLITICIANS AND CIVIL, PUBLIC SERVANTS, COPS, RCMP WE ALSO DO ENCOUNTER SO WHY ARE THEY NOW ALSO NOT BEING DISBARRED ASAP?
AND WHAT ABOUT THE HEALTH MINISTERS, PREMIERS WHO DO ALSO Allow our taxpayer’s money to be abused still AND should they not be banned too ASAP? WELL?
Quebec’s Public Security Minister Jacques Dupuis trying to fight off the attacks of the Parti Québécois and the Action démocratique du Québec opposition over the opposition accusations of him interfering with provincial police , allegations he helped a generous Liberal Party contributor, BCIA Inc., the private security, to acquire a firearms licence by agreeing to meet the BCIA owner Luigi Coretti after the Sûreté du Québec refused Coretti a permit to carry a handgun in 2008. Coretti gave about $8,000 to the Liberals in recent years. After a meeting with Dupuis, then with the minister’s chief of staff Jocelyn Turcotte, and a phone call from Turcotte to the provincial police force, Coretti did get his handgun permit. Dupuis said that as minister of public security, he did not know Coretti had government contracts and didn’t know why Coretti wanted to meet with him. Sounds like a very poor security minister even. As I know firsthand even my local Quebec Liberal MNA often gives priority to the business persons too.. The disgraced former Quebec Liberal minister Tony Tomassi himself was fired by Charest for using a credit card furnished by the BCIA security firm. Police are now investigating whether Mr. Tomassi received an allowance from the National Assembly for travel expenses while at the same time having the expenses covered by the BCIA-owned credit card. BCIA filed for bankruptcy last month. It had received several million dollars in government agency contracts and subsidies since 2008.
Finance Minister Raymond Bachand found himself answering questions about his hard-to-miss appearance at Monday night’s Canadiens-Penguins nail-biter playoff game. Bachand was right behind the Habs bench, a guest of club president Pierre Boivin. Seated beside Bachand, who is minister responsible for Montreal, was one of the country’s most influential bankers, BMO president Jacques Ménard. It seemed the whole world noticed
Radio-Canada reported that a Liberal organizer in St. Jean Port Joli who is also president of the local festivals association, told his volunteers to contribute to the party as a way of thanking the government for a subsidy. They then tried to get the money refunded by the festival’s association, something which is illegal under Quebec’s electoral laws.
HOW MUCH OF A FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION DO I first still now HAVE TO MAKE TO THE LIBERAL PARTY FIRST FOR THEM MY MNA Clément Gignac also now as well as the justice minister TO REPLY TO ME? and to adequately deal with the issues detailed to him? As I know firsthand even my local Quebec Liberal MNA often gives priority to the business persons too..
