New stricter rules for private seniors’ homes are on the way.

New stricter rules for private seniors’ homes are on the way.The Quebec government announced Wednesday it wants better-trained staff in more than 2,000 private residences, where more than 100,000 elderly people live. It wants to pass new regulations to make sure every private seniors’ home follows the same rules, including rules on bathwater temperature controls – a move that comes after at least ten Quebec seniors have died after being scalded by bath water in recent years.The government also wants tougher standards for sprinkler systems, more training for staff and two new categories of residents – autonomous and semi-autonomous – with new procedures for both. Residences that don’t comply will face consequences, said Health and Seniors Minister Réjean Hebert.“If some of these residences are not conforming to those rules, they will shut down,” he said. “I think it’s for the benefit of the elderly people who will find security and well-being in other places.”

Pauline Marois Quebec government’s proposal  to create a new watchdog to oversee universities  and Hospitals now as well is valid, natural.. some of the biggest crooks are even the educated folks..  and our Doctors, Nurses, Hospitals and the Police, RCMP are also now very poorly managed too ALL AT THE TAXPAYER’S EXPENSES. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/01/26/education-does-not-insure-morality-nor-are-professionals-better-persons/

I have been posting about the unacceptable seniors abuses in Quebec’s old age homes, hospitals , for 2 years to no avail. The too often lazy, immoral, pretentious Police themselves do not want any responsibility in the matter. Unenforced laws are still bullshit as a result.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/11/18/i-wrote-for-about-2-years-even-on-the-net-that-the-quebec-government-allows-the-abuse-of-the-seniors/

high-profile executives involved in the construction of the McGill University Superhospital are charged

MUHC

McGill University’s medical school is on probation. One of Canada’s most prestigious medical institutions, it received a failing grade by the Committee on Accreditation of Canadian Medical schools for not meeting 24 of the 132 accreditation standards.   McGill has 18 to 24 months to fix some of the problems identified by the committee  http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/mcgill-medical-school-gets-failing-grade-by-accreditation-body-1.2428131

.

Quebec’s anti-corruption task force suspects Porter and four high-profile  executives involved in the construction of the McGill University Superhospital  were part of a massive fraud conspiracy.UPAC issued arrest warrants Wednesday morning for Arthur Porter, Pierre  Duhaime, Riadh Ben Aissa, Yanai Elbaz , Jeremy Morris. UPAC confirmed  Wednesday that Elbaz – the former associate director general of the MUHC – is in  custody and will be charged Thursday. Duhaime — the former CEO of SNC-Lavalin – will turn himself in to Surete du  Quebec headquarters Thursday morning, He has already been charged with fraud. Ben  Aissa — another former executive at SNC-Lavalin — has already been arrested  and questioned by police for his possible role in other plots. All five are wanted for fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, and related charges.

Cleaning one’s own house first is in order even here too..  Too many McGill administrators, doctors are already known to be bad managers, money hungry while the university too readily takes our tax dollars now too and too allow falsely often abuses us too.. McGill is already very unpopular amongst the majority of Quebec French speaking persons. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/03/02/mcgill-university-montreal/

Not much of a surprise? The tip of the iceberg is being revealed only as  the overall depth of corruption will take much more time apparently to uncover, corruptions that likely permeates the whole project. Birds of feathers tend to flock together. And no one should tell us that  these initial suspected persons, now  were even  just isolated individuals acting on their own without the vast help and knowledge of any others now too. Higher education never insures one’s good moral standings.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/26/mcgill-administrators-likley-run-their-hospitals-the-same-way/

The McGill administrators in reality very likely run their hospitals and patients the same way.. very poorly and inadequate. At least that has been my own rightful complaints often here too https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/26/mcgill-administrators-likley-run-their-hospitals-the-same-way/

“Now we have the developing case of another Harper appointment that raises questions about the PM’s judgment. The PM appointed Porter to health advisory boards and then, oddly, recommended to the Privy Council Office that Porter be named to the Security and Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC). Harper’s record for associating with  undesireables just keeps getting better and better. Now we have the developing case of another Harper appointment that raises questions about the PM’s judgment.  The PM appointed Porter to health advisory boards and then, oddly, recommended to the Privy Council Office that Porter be named to the Security and Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC).Less than two years later, Porter found himself chair of our spy services oversight committee, a position in which he had access to all of Canada’s intelligence secrets. He was appointed to the Board of Air Canada and made a Queen’s Privy Councillor.  Porter also was connected to self-described arms-dealer and former (alleged) Israeli intelligence officer Ari Ben-Menashe. The two were involved in a dubious business deal involving a $120 million investment by Russia in “port development” in Africa.  It turned out that Porter was also claiming to be ambassador plenipotentiary of Sierra Leone, one of the most corrupt countries on earth — an obvious conflict with his SIRC role.”  http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/story/2013/02/27/mtl-mcgill-hospital-arthur-porter-arrest-warrant.html

And former adviser to PM Stephen Harper  had “grave doubts about putting people in jail” because of  child pornography    http://www.calgaryherald.com/Wildrose+dumps+campaign+manager+Flanagan+over+child+pornography+comments/8029677/story.html …

Politicians who land in hot water need help managing the crisis and protecting their reputations. Lucky for them, the Conservative Sen. Mike Duffy ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE TOO MANY BAD APPOINTMENTS OF PM STEPHEN HARPER, Duffy over the past several weeks, offered a master class in how to get through the worst of it AND NOT IN A NICE WAY TOO.  Lie, Belittle, Blame. Dodge, Deflect, Flee, Admit very little..  as clearly he is learning from his boss the PM.. And were all previously promised a better Government and this now is it?

Canadian Medicare belongs to the people who paid for it, Bonafide Canadians

justice

.

Too many new arrivals in Canada they do lie,   scheme, plan ahead to abuse our generosity, even commit tax evasions too.. and the money they save goes to their own bank accounts or abroad too all of which is also unacceptable…

.
The Canadian governments, Canadian Medicare, the Canada’s immigration system, the Canadian system, they are not supposed to be a safety blanket for any of the yet non Canadians citizens. No such thing as free Medicare.. some one pays for it.. Canadian taxpayers. Canadian Medicare is for real Canadians and their immediate, direct family.

I agree with many Canadians who do say that the Canadian Taxpayer has been undeniably pounded much too often with both social welfare and even medical costs by non-Canadians, thieves, liars and cheats now too.

According to some statistics, apparently annually or much too often many visitors or false immigrants, immigrants who live abroad but do not pay taxes too, come to Canada to be medically taken care off, some even go home to their country with a promise to pay the bill, which often never happens.

A great number of countries require that all visitors first must have a medical travel insurance so should Canada. Canada is not obligated to do so.. At a time when millions of Canadians do not even have a family doctor.

But if a spouse is a Canadian citizen the whole direct family should get Medicare now still

I do not think it is unreasonable to limit access to people who are not Canadians. We have no obligation to pay for someone else’s supposed poverty. Funny how the people who have no money for instance can still affords to travel and by the things they want too. If they have really no money let them go to the Red Cross. Or let them take out a loan some where and pay for the medical services. Or get a Cosigner where the cosigning is guarantor who will reimburse the government for all of the medical expenses that the person they are guaranteeing utilizes.
While a permanent resident visa application is in process, the sponsored person must stay in status and reside with the sponsor, Guarantor, in Canada, and once accepted if they next do receive any social welfare, pension supplemental, they cannot next travel abroad now too. Falsely many do. If they can afford to travel abroad, they are still rich and thus  do not legitimately   qualify for any social welfare, pension supplemental.

If the  applicant leaves the country, even for a short vacation, they are not granted re-entry, as that may effectively end cohabitation between the spouses and thus it will terminate status in Canada. Since they now fall outside the basic requirements, the application should be refused. Forfeiting the $550 fee they have paid to apply for a permanent resident visa.

Some people who never worked in Canada or paid any taxes here they do demand and they falsely do get social welfare, pension supplemental now as well.. Not acceptable.

There are many of us who never get to go abroad and yet some new arrivals, do now next  even still take a vacation abroad, such as to Bulgaria, and what they now still falsely still do want our tax dollars to cover any and all of their medical expenses, because they have decided that is what Canada should do? Dream on.

It’s funny how some people make immoral acts,  choices and expect a government to change its  policies to suit .. Not acceptable.

Time for us all to fight to lower police costs Canada wide, RCMP included

police-start
Police  Managers, Politicians,  Police  Unions, the Police themselves are  Facing  Nation Wide Outrage , Public Anger, as  Canada wide there is an UNDENIABLE  problem in how the police do their jobs. Police officers do not only need to maintain the respect and good will of citizens to do their job effectively, they also depend on that good will in political battles over salary, pensions and benefits, in which they have been far more successful than other public employees in recent years.  The lack of trust of police by the minority community is also unacceptable.  When Police enforcement goes bad, the police and the police unions historically close ranks around suspect officers   Police PR and Police cover-ups will not do.  It is important for the police unions,  Police managers  to become honestly self-critical about police conduct and to not blindly defend each and every egregious incident by officers. And the criminal justice system should be doing what it was supposed to do,  carry out real, valid police justice.

. 
It is an undeniable fact that the New Conservatives had said elect us and we will next show you an honest government, accountable, transparent as well but as we all tend to know next that was a big lie now too.. They clearly are not part of the  solutions to the much too many corruptions ongoing in Canada but clearly rather a part of the problem in that they and the RCMP for sure have failed to properly address the much too many  corruptions.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/03/08/most-politicians-civil-and-public-servants-think-the-rules-dont-apply-to-them/
.
Yes, we all can easily know that corruption has even plagued Quebec ( not just Ontario too)  at multi levels in City Halls. Hospitals, etc., from the top down to the bottom and for a very long time over 50 years.. Obviously nothing has changed.. because the watchdogs did nothing good about it.. the police, RCMP included also were, are themselves as bad as ever here.. the fiascos go on and on.. Money generating Speeding and parking tickets were their main Police occupations it seems.   It is sad that Job preservation was too often the false reason why most of the ostrich  employees also had went along with the vast corruptions instead of opposing it.. all it took for evil to triumph was for the good people to do nothing about it. 

” Turns out that every aspect of Quebec public service is completely corrupt. Unfortunately, it is not just the city of Montreal that needs more investigation, it is:

– the SQ for giving themselves illegal bonuses and shutting down investigations that touch the “gouvernement national”.

– The MUC police force, and their contracts between Yvan Delorme and BCIA

– Union Montreal. It appears that at their fundraisers, they sometimes keep part or all of the money.

– We can look forward to “the corruption float” this Sunday which will be led by Montreal’s new mayor mayor Michael “I swear I am not under investigation” Applebaum.

PS: Merci to the SQ for tipping off the mayor about current UPAQ investigations.  Obviously nothing has changed..”

.
“Spending on policing has increased steadily while the volume and severity of reported crime have both been on the decline” even or has the police falsely rather discouraged the reporting of the crimes firstly?
.
Two police officers have been judged to be in breach of 4 code of ethics clearly  criminal charges. Why were their names not released?  and what if  when the same  police officers punch  someone it an ethics violation but if a citizen does  do the same, its an Assault conviction with a criminal record?  http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/story/2013/02/13/montreal-racial-profile-farid-charles.html

OTTAWA — A new report by a respected international human rights watchdog has accused RCMP officers of abusing aboriginal women and girls in northern British Columbia.  http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/scathing-report-accuses-b-c-mounties-of-raping-abusing-aboriginal-girls-1.1154727

Human rights group says RCMP, native relationship ‘dysfunctional’ -A number of women interviewed by Human Rights Watch researchers alleged that RCMP officers used excessive force in arresting them, mistreated them while they were in custody and, in some cases, physically or sexually assaulted them. Many of the aboriginal women he spoke with did not trust police and felt little confidence that any complaints would be addressed. He said he was surprised to find that the fear of police expressed by some of the women was comparable with what he has seen in post-conflict situations in countries such as Iraq and Libya. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/human-rights-group-says-rcmp-native-relationship-dysfunctional/article8572404/

RCMP has a bullying problem, watchdog says. Commission chairman Ian McPhail said about 90 per cent of the complaints involved bullying. Only four per cent of the complaints dealt with sexual harassment, A national police force where abuse of authority is possibly a systemic problem means a really bad Police force!  and  the simple perception of a continual pattern of poor treatment of employees is enough to rattle all public confidence in   RCMP and severely already tarnished the force’s reputation.

The Public Safety Minister Mr. Vic Toews gave a speech the last month in which he questioned the spiralling costs of policing. Most policemen and their managers  are still really cost ineffective It is really Time to fight to lower police costs Canada wide, the RCMP included even by an clearly, enforced effective cost control framework ensures that no one rewards themselves at public expense,  that  ensures that the public is getting the most for its money, ensures  that all expense and travel claims are appropriate and handled with a high level of transparency and accountability.  And here too an example needs to be made of all those who abuse the expense account or sign off on illegitimate expenses by even make such acts criminal plus having the guilty individual return the stolen money. Thousands or millions of dollars abused are an enormous amount of money, and to not have adequate, stringent cost controls in place by now  is an unacceptable  failure of any  leadership on all the part of the governments , ministers, mayors, administrators . 
.
By the way the people who make false expense statements are also guilty now of tax evasion
Follow the money trail, the oldest rule of good journalism and why is that so? as the love of money is the root of ell evil still..  He or she who cannot be trusted to handle money cannot be trusted to handle anything else now 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.
.
Now “it’s true that police costs in general, and police salaries in particular, are out of control. Total spending on police services nationally has doubled since 1997, reaching $12-billion. While the average Canadian income has grown by 11 per cent over the past decade, the average police salary has grown by 40 per cent. Policing is doing to municipal budgets what health care is doing to provincial budgets: threatening to consume them.” Both need better cost control management too.. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/death-of-internet-bill-gives-toews-new-life-to-beat-the-drum-on-policing-costs/article8584719/?

.

The cost of policing cannot continue to rise indefinitely in Canada, or cities will end up bankrupt. Pools, camps, parks and libraries will have to close. Police in England and several U.S. cities have already undertaken drastic and innovative reforms to transform the delivery of law enforcement for a modern era  This has not yet happened in Canada. But there is no time to waste. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/commentary/editorials/cost-of-policing-in-canada-cannot-continue-to-rise/article7437935/

An effective GOVERNEMNT cost control framework ensures that  no one rewards themselves at public expense, to make sure  the public is getting the most for its money, make sure that all expense and travel claims are appropriate and handled with a high level of transparency and accountability.

Last year, it was revealed that former AHS financial officer Allaudin Merali, while working for Edmonton’s now-defunct Capital Health Region, charged taxpayers almost $370,000 for pricey restaurant meals, to fix his Mercedes Benz and to hire a butler. http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/arts-and-life/life/health/alberta-health-dinged-taxpayers-for-private-plane-ride-realtor-fee-auditor-190880421.html

EDMONTON — Alberta’s auditor general and Alberta Justice launched a $2.4-million probe into the Office of the Public Trustee after a senior trust officer was fired for allegedly stealing more than $120,000 from a trust he was administering. The revelation is contained in auditor general’s   report,  which also found Alberta Health Services (AHS) exercised lax controls in reimbursing 26,000 employees for spending during a 17-month span in 2011-12. “The fact that the control systems essentially have failed over that period have  cost this huge amount of public resources,”

Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013  The province of Alberta released the most recent report from the Auditor General – which included dozens of recommendations meant for three different provincial departments. Auditor General Merwan Saher passed the 117 page report on to the provincial government in early February.The report included a total of 33 recommendations is meant to increase accountability for Alberta Health Services, the Office of the Public Trustee, and a number of post-secondary institutions. For AHS, Saher said the organization needs to place tighter controls on expenses, and guidelines for staff to follow when it comes to travel and living expenses. According to the report, AHS spent more than $100 million on travel and hospitality over 17-months.The report outlined a number of incidents where guidelines were not followed.In one case, an AHS staff member was found to have charged taxpayers for flying his own plane – without an explanation as to why the official couldn’t take a commercial flight, or how the rate charged for the private flight was competitive.In another case, one unnamed facility used taxi cabs to transport patients to their homes, some of the charges ended up totaling more than $300 – also, without an explanation.  The only recommendation outlined in the report for AHS was for officials to tighten controls over expense claims, credit card transactions and other travel expenses by improving how charges are analyzed and documented, improve education and training of staff for compliance with expense policies and monitoring expenses and reporting results to the board.The rest of the recommendations, including those for the Office of the Public Trustee and for a number of Alberta post-secondary institutions, can be found online.  Read more: http://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/ag-report-outlines-recommendations-for-health-authority-1.1154218#ixzz2Kk42rXz8

Now   why is this above  finding and related recommendations so important to all Canadian taxpayers the increased accountability now for  all  civil and public servants, cops, RCMP,  politicians, senators? any group that gets government funding too. or what you falsely still do not  think that most other regional boards, sections, they  do not do the same thing, abuse the tax payer’s money unrestrained now too, yes all the other regional governmental executives managers, departments?  Follow the money trail is still the oldest valid rule of Journalism, cost control too.

It is a sad reality that much too many now Politicians, civil and public servants, RCMP , Cops, City Hall workers, managers do abuse their expenses,  on their out of town travel and living expenses and  here also they do  even make too many quite unnecessary out of town and/or out of the country travel now too. How do I know this firsthand? In one city alone 3 city hall departmental managers boasted to me that they did it and their associates too.

By the way the people who make false expense statements are also guilty now of tax evasion

While Scandals and corruption are nothing new in politics they are still unacceptable

.

The bribery shenanigans unfolding at the Charbonneau commission, the intrigue involving Arthur Porter and the MUHC/SNC-Lavalin frolics, tales of second-rate asphalt and now even bridges falling down clearly all indicate something is, was still seriously wrong in Quebec as well

Follow the money trail, the oldest rule of good journalism and why is that so? as the love of money is the root of ell evil still..  He or she who cannot be trusted to handle money cannot be trusted to handle anything else now too. Money and Power still clearly corrupts and our boys on the Ottawa Hill and elsewhere demonstrate this reality much too often these days too.

While Scandals and corruption are nothing new in politics whether it be the MPs…MLAs or Senators at all levels of government.  The political past and present times are not only  rampant and full of scandals and corruptions that are too numerous to even begin to list but they are still very clearly evidence of the really bad managements by the political leaders. Even this recent wave of scandal and corruption all across the country at all levels of government is  CONTINUAL signal for us the citizens to seriously weigh in the matter and demand not only more safe guards such as mandatory police clearances prior to anyone being allowed to run for office but we need to see these guilty persons punished. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty persons, with jail time, serves everyone’s   best interest even the guilty offender.  Mandatory legal actions should  made into law against all bad civil and public servants, politians that  would allow further criminal proceedings against any who are involved in taxpayer’s money abuses scandal and corruption. The time for this change in political governing  is in order. Not only because of our good welfare …..but rather because of these much too many crooks, abusers..

And once elected…….periodical checks are required, even recalls on all politicians, senators too  to insure that these politicians have not next  not falling to the weigh side while in office  and they should not be treated be treated any better or differently over  anyone else in life who does wrong, evil, crimes.

Obviously too many of our politicians, civil and public servants as evidenced from their past and current behavior and conduct really are no better then anybody else, are unsuited thus for their jobs and should be removed ASAP

it’s time the RCMP looked at the questionable spending practices – their own and the others   http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2013/02/13/ndp_seeks_rcmp_probe_into_senate_expenses_controversy.html …

.

OTTAWA – Controversy over Mike Duffy’s Senate housing allowance has mushroomed into a bigger question — whether he’s entitled to sit in the Senate at all — that now threatens to ensnare colleague Pamela Wallin. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/housing-flap-plaguing-duffy-wallin-raises-questions-senate-231632232.html

.

Wallin’s Senate eligibility questioned by political scientist  Senators are required to be residents of the province they represent, but according to Leeson, political science professor emeritus at the University of Regina, since she was appointed in 2009, Wallin has given less than satisfactory answers to questions about her connection to the province.”If she would simply say, ‘Yes, I have a driver’s licence. Yes, I have a health care card. Yes, I file my taxes from here,’ that would clear it up,” he said. “But she hasn’t done that.” Wallin has repeatedly said she owns property in Saskatchewan and meets the Senate residency requirement. However, she declined to answer questions from CBC News about whether she has a Saskatchewan health card or a Saskatchewan driver’s licence. http://bit.ly/12gLmYj

.

 Wallin has claimed $321,037 in ‘other travel’ and $29,423 on flights from Ottawa to her home province of Saskatchewan since September 2010. But supposedly 70 per cent of her travel expense were for tickets from Ottawa to Toronto, where Wallin owns a condo.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/blogs/canada-politics/senator-pamela-wallin-audited-over-350-000-travel-135810011.html 

.

SADLY NO ONE ADMITS THEIR GUILT, NOT EVEN DR PORTER OF MUHC OR ANY SENATORS, MPS, MAYORS, CITY HALL SERVANTS RATHER THEY TOO  OFTEN FALSELY DO EVEN USE THREATS, LAWYERS TO SUPRESS ANY ACCUSATIONS, NEGATIVE FACTS..THEY CANNOT DENY THE TRUTH STILL

.

Senators Brazeau, Duffy, Harb face outside audit  – NO SUCH TING AS A LITTLE BIT PREGNANT http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/senators-brazeau-duffy-harb-face-outside-audit-1.1148469 …

.

THE VERY BAD SENATORS APPOINTED IS THE MAIN ISSUE, EVEN I CAN SEE THAT, AND  NOT THE SENATE ITSELF, THAT INCLUDES THE BAD SELECTIONs MADE BY THE CURRENT PRIME MINISTER  STEPHEN HARPER
.

“In fact, the most common lament one hears these days from long-time senators of both political stripes is that the Harper appointees are nothing more than cheerleaders, tossing reasoned debate and committee work over the deck in favour of boosting the man who gave them the job. To Ottawa-based journalists, Duffy betrayed the tribe, insulting those of us who believe our job is to try to hold our elected representatives to account, not to turn on a dime once a patronage plum is dangled.”
http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2013/02/11/why_mike_duffy_has_a_big_target_on_his_back_tim_harper.html
.

NO SUCH TING AS A LITTLE BIT PREGNANT..   ONE HAS TO BE REALLY DUMB IF ONE THINKS THAT THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE, HOUSING ALLOWANCES, THAT  HE MIKE DUFFY OR ANY OTHERS HAVE CHEATED, LIED STOLE NOW.  AS OLD BAD HABITS DIE HARD. AND THE ORDINARY FOLKS WOULD NOT BE LEFT GO THAT EASILY. ALL PEOPLE IN LEADERSHIP HAVE TO BE JUDGED MORE SEVERELY AS THEY ARE ALSO TO BE GOOD EXAMPLES AND NOT BAD ONES. PUBLIC EXPOSURE AND PROSECUTION OF THE GUILTY PERSONS SERVES EVERYONE’S BEST INTEREST STILL INCLUDING MIKE DUFFY’S .  FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL,  THE FIRST RULE OF JOURNALISM STILL APPLIES HERE TOO.

Now you can run but not hide, but as a Politiican, civil and public servant, professing leader, pastor or preiest too you lead by personal example  too, all people have a right to judge all you do.

Brazeau used father-in-law’s address to get tax exemption   http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/brazeau-used-father-in-law-s-address-to-get-tax-exemption-1.1146468 …

Senator Patrick Brazeau is to be forced on leave after his criminal charges and what about the other bad senators? http://cbc.sh/UWEHsgQ

The sad Arthur Porter affair prompted next stricter vetting by the government at even the federal spy watchdog http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Arthur+Porter+affair+prompted+stricter+vetting+federal+watchdog/7931423/story.html …

Quebec’s police task force on corruption is probing how a billion-dollar contract for a Montreal mega-hospital was awarded to a consortium led by Montreal engineering giant SNC Lavalin Group Inc. The police raids conducted at McGill University Health Centre headquarters http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/quebecs-anti-corruption-police-squad-searches-mcgill-university-health-centre/article4551179/

MONTREAL — Former federal Senator David Angus has been questioned by Operation  Marteau investigators probing the awarding of the McGill University Health  Centre (MUHC) super hospital contract to SNC-Lavalin, La Presse reported   http://www.globalmontreal.com/former%20federal%20senator%20questioned%20by%20quebec%20fraud%20investigators%20report/6442730071/story.html

When this kind of corruption is all you hear about you know that the Conservative state government even  has gone rotten.

By the way the people who make false expense statements are also guilty now of tax evasion

Subject: I have said for decade now seniors are being murdered in Canada’s hospitals
.
So you think you may enjoy your retirement  instead of being ”  MURDERED IN HOSPITALS “
.
ESTHER 4: 13 And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. 14 For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
.

In Canada, especially in Ontario and Ontario, we have  a very great undeniable, false problem of neglect in the treatment of older patients in the hospital and in old age homes’
.

Upon admission to the hospital you are requested to sign a form declaring whether you wish to be revived in case of emergency, or not. This document is called a D. N. R. or Do Not Resuscitate form. They give you two choices.
.
The first choice, you are told is to accept being kept alive as a living vegetable, completely insensane.  The second you are told is to let nature take its course. Then these utterly helpful people will even sign the form for you. All nice and neat.
.

However this is the biggest song and dance act to be put over the public since Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. What you are actually agreeing to is for the Hospital to totally neglect you or even pump you full of enough morphine to overdose a football stadium of people.
Our health care system and old age homes seems perpetuates the belief that a person who is over the age of sixty-five has somehow managed to reach their lifetime expiry date, a best before date if you will for people. And now that these old people are in the hospital using up resources and funds best reserved for younger people, now well you can’t really expect for the hospital to fix them back up, can you?
After all as far as many of the hospital staff is concerned this old person has managed somehow to have a long life already and that is enough of that now.
You really can’t be expecting the hospital staff to put themselves out and actually care for these old people, too, can you? I mean why give an older person in the hospital a blanket when you might have to wash it then, or food when that will just encourage him to stick around. And if they have anything close to a complex condition, well there is that neat little DNR now isn’t there? You don’t really have to work to fix up these people when that signature gives you an out for some very bad behavior indeed.

The problem with this whole attitude ( besides giving me nightmares of genocidal dictators) is that it completely negates the concept of ” best practice”. loving one another ,

Best practice is the long and firmly held belief that there is only ONE way to treat EVERYBODY. Not when you feel like it or just when you really want to or when someone gives you more money to behave better. Every time for everybody. Because when you start to slack or fail to preform, its just too easy to keep on giving less then your best.

If you take a gander at the rising medical malpractice deaths in hospital across the country and through the United States, you will soon realize that the concept of best practice has gone the way of the proverbial washed baby with the dirty bathwater.
.

Now Hospitals when they are being asked to put forward their best game have no best game left. Only the same sloppy seconds they choose to inflict upon older people. Not keeping sterile technique. Not caring for basic needs ( feeding washing having water and blankets for the bed available). Not being concerned about basic medical protocols.
.

For example twisting the patient while shifting them in bed even though the patient is suffering from a shattered pelvis which has not been casted ( because it is just too hard to do with those old bones, you see).
Then using drugs upon that patient which go against the  doctors and specialists orders for that patient, (because that’s the way the hospital usually does it). Such as give that broken bone patient blood thinners which absolutely stop any bone repair from being made( one of the functions of blood thinners are to stop the clotting process, bone healing is in itself a clotting process).   And then refusing to give the patient bone building vitamin supplements that the doctor has ordered under the reasoning of the staff that vitamins and minerals aren’t really a serious medicine and so it doesn’t matter whether or not it has been given.
.

Hospitals can get away with this heinous behavior because it mostly affects the older more vulnerable sections of our society.
.
You see hospitals understand that they can indulge themselves with this sort of ageist behavior because we the people are still watching that Fred and Ginger song and dance act that they bedazzled us with in the first place.
.
The ageist behavior of the hospitals has lead us to believe rightfully that when old people go into hospital there are automatically at risk of dying.
.

But this only comes to pass because of the hospitals actions or mainly bad in-actions. Not because of theme now being any more innate vulnerability in the average mature person then there is in a preteen child.  Both groups Children and Seniors still do need a certain amount of care taken. But older persons are given far less care over the children .
.

“I have personally come up against this exact sort of ageism, many times hearing that  sixty is a good long time to have lived. This behavior not only diminishes all of us, separating us from our true humanity, our beliefs in charity and that older adults are precious contributors to our own lives and not to be diminished by these vultures upon the vulnerable.”
.

What they do so many now do inflicts harm upon all of us seniors? It is a spreading epidemic of ill will cast out upon those who only seek to enjoy  their golden years without the machinations of their caretakers contributing to their  early exit. Or shall I be more plain spoken and say what it is indeed, an execution. At what cost do we allow this to happen?
.

The insurance company too are doubly hit by this, first with the hospital costs and then with the life policy payout.
.
The stores and service sectors that older people patronize lose out.  Real Estate suffers because that extra condo is never purchased.  Younger families looking for affordable housing cannot move into established neighborhoods because to make the most of the estate, it is sold to developers.   And those young people if they get sick can not count upon the care of the hospitals because the staff are too jaded with their good enough practices that they become unable to set right your average medical situation.  Not being able to do CPR. Not recognizing the signs of poisoning, heart attack drug toxicity or allergic reaction. They only move now upon the threat of being sued, and even that last resort of public outrage is hamstrung with government legislation. All in an attitude of don’t do what’s best, only protect your butt.
.

This whole situation is an attack directed at  the Zoomers age group. This D.N.R. nonsense has to be rewritten re-regulated and completely re-thoughtout. It only acts as a legal sop to cover the actual act of involuntary euthanasia upon our senior persons. This has built to the point where we must act if not for ourselves then for everything we hold dear.  Our families and our liberties are threatened by this madness.  Should we not take this task to hand one day it will be your children in the hospital facing these torturers, Facing their own unsought for demise. And then who will stand for them?”
.
and the governments falsely do nothing about it.. why?
