Today corruption. INCLUDING WHITE COLLARED CRIMES, is one of the world’s most talked about social problem. It is also very positive that people around the world are demanding more accountability from the Governments , Civil and public servants, professionals too All of our Public institutions such as Parliament, provincial legislatures and councils must also seriously play their managerial, oversight role to ensure that all public resources are properly accounted, allocated and thus insure always that there is efficient, honest spending and value for money. Accountability in the public service was, is as important as full Human Resource Management insuring that the public sector is working to a higher, decent levels of performance, effectiveness and accountability, as the prosperity of societies are depended on the ethical, efficient, dedicated and well-trained civil service but that falsely is still too often not the case.
Sin, abuse, corruption is a local and world wide on going event.. so everyone needs to be supervised, even cops, pastors, civil and public servants, teachers, accountants, lawyers and professionals.. The federal government is the biggest employer in Canada and fails to properly mage them still. There is an ongoing essential big need still of enforcing the code of conduct for public servants to ensure the highest degree of responsibility, transparency and accountability in managing public funds. The governments should visibly guarantee justice is enforced in all of the distribution of taxpayer’s money, resources and that more anti-corruption efforts are expedited Canada wide too. Those who are proven involved in graft should be tried before the judiciary. Public exposure and exemplary prosecution of the guilty persons serves everyone’s best interests. The reputation of public servants and the governments are not great especially at this particular point in time. “There’s no moral high ground for anyone.” The general cynicism of the public, is being fed by the corruptions exposures in Quebec, and by a steady diet of the too often unnecessary labour strife, as sadly some public-service unions have adopted ill advised, increasingly provocative tactics. More of the even too often really bad civil and public servants, federal workers across the country need to face spending cuts and layoffs. Cops and RCMP included.
Most government budget cuts falsely hit front-line services not the self serving, public and civil service personnel, back room waste, budget watchdog says “There are significant reductions that could have potential service level impacts,” About 85 per cent of these false savings appear to come from programs for Canadians http://o.canada.com/2012/11/07/most-government-budget-cuts-hit-front-line-services-not-backroom-waste-budget-watchdog-says/
FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL, THE QUEBEC CORRUPTION MESS IS STILL JUST THE TIP OF A BIG ICEBERG TOO.. AND CORRUPTION EXISTS IN OTHER PLACES SUCH AS IN THE PURCHASING DEPARTMENTS, AND WHAT HAS ALSO BEEN JUST AS DEPRESSING IS HOW LITTLE THE LAST 50 YEARS NOW TOO THE FEDERAL, PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENTS, THE POLICE, THE RCMP THEY ALL MOSTLY STILL DID NOTHING GOOD ABOUT IT ALL TOO.. THEY ALL SEEM TO HAVE THEIR SHARE OF CORRUPTIONS , EXPENSE ACCOUNTS ABUSES. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/12/02/is-nothing-sacred-any-more-and-when-will-it-all-end/
The Government in Ottawa wants better productivity, so why not now even measure its own? as it only fair that these ministers also thus be judged on their own exemplary productivity performance, and that of the ministries they represent. As Unfortunately, no mechanism still exists to measure productivity in the public sector the way it’s measured in the private sector. Yes the public sector has a massive impact on the productivity performance of the country. The federal service alone employs 400,000 people and the public sector (factoring in all levels of government and not-for-profit organizations) represents 25% of Canada’s total GDP. So, why hasn’t the development of a productivity measurement tool become a priority? Canadians often associate productivity in the public sector with service efficiency. In other words, if one has to stand in line for only 10 minutes to get a passport application processed, rather than 45 minutes, then government is being more productive. And an increase in the number of poorly managed, poorly selected civil servants would not improve productivity performance. The growing ranks of poorly managed too often immoral, buck passing public and civil -sector workers don’t translate into a better front-line service delivery. http://www.ottawacitizen.com/business/productiveconversations/Ottawa+wants+better+productivity+measure/7585463/story.html
There are about 19,200 regular members and another 3,760 civilians in the RCMP. RCMP racks up $800M in overtime in 5 years The total does not include extra duty pay for standby or operational readiness. http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2012/12/04/rcmp-overtime-costs-harris.html
When the Liberals were in power, they now had managed the RCMP more effectively
Canadian civil servants cashing in on sick days. A report says public sector employees take an average of 12.9 days a year. The private sector businesses; firms with fewer than 20 people take 6.7 days off while those with more than 500 use 9.1 days. CFIB President Dan Kelly says civil servants have adopted a culture of entitlement in taking extra time off. “It drives Canadians crazy that those supported by their tax dollars… that they feel somehow more entitled to take more time off than they can themselves.” Some civil servants are even allowed to bank their unused sick days. Kelly calls it a perverse idea and unfair to other Canadians. “Sometimes people are retiring six months early or getting cheques for several thousands of dollars for their retirement, and I think that’s just converted straight into an entitlement for civil servants,” he explains. Our federal employees are the worst culprits, using on average 15.2 days a year. “We think sick days should be used only when you’re sick,” says Kelly.
Now in the interests of national security, public safety or the economic well-being of the country, for the prevention of disorder or crime, for the protection of health or morals, or for the protection of the rights and freedoms of others… immigration rules will have to be amended to “tilt the balance” and make it more difficult for foreign criminals to argue against deportation in court.
The foreign nationals can be deported when they:
• Are convicted of a criminal offence.
• Have breached immigration rules.
• Have established a family .. while living in the country illegally.
• Have to rely on benefits to house their family.
