Failure to count the costs

Lacking experience, hot headed, foolish Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau  is falsely escalating a war with Russia and the US and it is always the same reason.. Money, I am sure that Justin Trudeau is going to make KGB Putin tremble with fear and trepidation” or not.. “Its like taking a knife to a gunfight….crazy. Justin Trudeau should first note that Us President Donald Trump threatens to close down NATO. So who is going to war against Russia with no arms, money next?

Liberals, and Ukraine as well  do now bring to an end all of the orchestrated professional campaign of incitement to hatred, discrimination, violence, misinformation etc., that many can see you doing anyway.  https://sacredtruths.wordpress.com/2012/02/04/those-unacceptable-persons-bullies-abuserscontrol-freaks-liars-slanderers/

The Arctic is believed to hold up to 25 percent of the planet’s untapped oil and gas supplies, and Russia, the U.S., Canada, Denmark and Norway have all been trying to assert jurisdiction over parts of the territory.

Russia’s had submitted a bid for vast Arctic territories that could contain large quantities of oil and gas to the United Nations. In 2007, Moscow staked a symbolic claim to the Arctic seabed by dropping a canister containing the Russian flag on the ocean floor from a submarine at the North Pole. The Kremlin also has moved to beef up Russian military forces in the Arctic. The effort has included the restoration of a Soviet-era military base on the New Siberian Islands and other military outposts in the Arctic. Moscow has justified the activity by claiming that the new facilities are vital to protect shipping routes that link Europe to the Pacific Rim. Earlier this year, the military conducted sweeping maneuvers in the Arctic that involved 38,000 servicemen, more than 50 surface ships and submarines and 110 aircraft. As part of the drills, the military demonstrated its capability to quickly beef up its forces on the Arctic

” With estimates putting billions of square feet of natural gas and countless barrels of oil lying in the Arctic crust, Russia and other so-called Arctic states are circling the potential revenues at their doorstep. Putin, who presides over a major petro-economy in Russia, has made it his national and fiscal plan to conquer the Arctic. The Arctic is his gem and Russia is prepared to defend its claim.. Prime Minister Stephen Harper,  had made plays for the Arctic too. He was dreaming of  Drones for the Arctic are at the top of his wish list, too, along with new fighter aircraft to patrol the frigid skies. In the Canada’s ongoing obsession also with Arctic sovereignty the Harper government  deployed two icebreakers to the Arctic on a scientific mission to collect data for Canada’s official continental shelf submission to the United Nations: trying to prove the vast northern expanse is mostly its own. Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Conservative MPs have been a false vocal critics of Russian President Vladimir Putin for months. Now that Donald Trump is a Russia supporter will the Conservatives change their tune?

Liberals openly punishing Russia   seem  to have inflicted more pain on the Canadian  people instead. THE OIL PRICE DROP HAS HIT CANADA SEVERELY

US , Canada, Australia,  NATO ,  EU have falsely laid all of the blame for the conflict’s escalation on Russia, and disregarded Kiev’s intensified assault on rebel-held areas.  Why?  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/08/09/oil-politics/

Trudeau had harsh words for the Russian president when asked by reporters about the Helsinki summit during a media availability in Nova Scotia Tuesday.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2015/02/04/the-false-war-against-russia-escaltes/

“Canada has been unequivocal in our condemnation of Vladimir Putin and Russia,” said Trudeau in Sutherlands River, N.S.

“Whether it’s their illegal annexation of Crimea, their incursion into the Donbass in Ukraine and the fact that we’re glad to have 200 Canadian soldiers there helping to train Ukrainian armies. Whether it’s their interference in Syria and the support for the murderous Assad regime, whether it’s what they were responsible for in the chemical weapons attack in Salisbury on U.K. soil against British nationals. Canada has always been clear.”

By the way the Ukrainian Conflict is also still a religious conflict between Catholicism. Orthodox, and western Christianity, Judaism now  too..   and they have not directly talked to each other for over a thousand of years too.

The Ukrainian government for 25 years and more has long been hobbled by deep-rooted  internal corruption and  governmental mismanagement.  With Ukraine’s economy  undeniably collapsing, the officials  desperately are looking for diversions, someone to blame.  The myth the West spreads Ukrainian forces are defensive in nature; they are not combat combative is still a myth. The crisis in Ukraine supposedly began in November 2013 when pro-Moscow President Viktor Yanukovych’s government abandoned a deal with the European Union in favor of stronger ties with Russia. Fighting broke out between the Ukrainian forces and the pro-Russian Ukrainian rebels and not between Ukraine and Russia. The Ukrainian military operation has it’s headquarters in Kramatorsk, an aerodrome that serves as the Ukrainian HQ! ” Images Appear to Show Russian Artillery Targeting Ukrainian Town” Weapons Systems Belong to Russian Military, Not Separatists, U.S. Ambassador to OSCE Says” ” Vladimir Putin had attempted to delay the truce by a full 10 days to allow the Russian-backed forces time to seize the town ” , “Russian-backed forces launched a sustained assault to capture a strategic railway hub “, or “Western officials have become increasingly worried that Mr. Putin is .. ” “We are confident that these are Russian military, not separatist systems” and ” the United States under Obama  had reliable reports that Russia was preparing a large shipment of supplies to pro-Russian forces” all are merely still claims that could not be verified, propaganda, unsubstantiated journalism, an opinion only. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/04/19/those-lying-spin-dopctors-think-we-are-all-as-stupid-as-they-are/

HOW OTHERS SEE IT… INFORMAL POLL RESULTS .. Should Ukraine accept the result of a referendum to allow Crimea to join Russia? Yes, let the people decide  73% No, this is not constitutional 26% https://www.hubub.com/topic.php?id=118324&itemId=132598&utm_source=taboola&utm_medium=referral .

”  Putin calls Canada’s stance toward Russia’s policy regarding Ukraine hard to justify citing the fact Canada is too far away from the region to justify its interference.  ”

http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/national/Vladimir+Putin+Canada+talk+about+Arctic+Ukraine/9874950/story.html

The Ukrainian Government called  for a mass mobilization due to a supposed Russian Invasion are all designed to distract attention from Ukraine’s own Corruptions, Holocaust, Nazisms, Mafia preparations for a massive pruning of Ukraine own Russian speaking citizens who now are rightfully  defending their own families and life only.  Broke, Bankrupt Ukraine vows to escalate the war against the Ukrainian separatist, and why the hurry to war? What would Jesus do? Seek peace.

 AS LONG AS THE FALSE UKRAINIAN LEADERS, WESTERN AND EU LEADERS CONTINUE TO LIE, DISTORT THE REALITY, SHOW ANTI RUSSIAN RACISM the relations between the Kremlin and the West are likely to remain immensely complicated and volatile for a long time.  As expected without the Russian government’s direct support nothing will succeed in Ukraine..  The West and the Europeans are now also  playing a dangerous role  through their false sharing in exacerbating the Ukrainian conflict. They  should choose firstly peace instead of choosing  Crimes Against Humanity now too. The Ukrainian conflicts and resulting Russian-Western tensions may widen further for a long time to come. If so, this  is likely to lead to substantial geopolitical changes.   There is still a big amount of public opinion in the US calls for a reduction in The NATO, US  military involvement in international affairs. The West has falsely accused Russia of breaking international law by annexing Crimea. This implies that the US and the  European Union respect international law – which never was true.. And the  EU association policy is still the root cause of the Ukraine conflict. The big lie  that Russia is NATO’s “adversary.” This expression was used by NATO’s Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow  and it increases the tensions unnecessarily.. While Putin is a Russian nationalist. It would be absurd to claim that he aims for a global ideological conquest now too. 

Western false Accusations towards Vladimir Putin traditionally start with the fact that he worked in the KGB. And therefore what he is a cruel and immoral person? Putin is next blamed for everything. But Putin does not lack intelligence. and has an ability for quick analytic thinking and makes clear, balanced political and economic decisions. he present government in the Ukraine is a government THAT over threw a democratically elected former government! And the West supports this government? Amazing how the West is falsely trying to re-write history standing on the sidelines and bad mouthing everybody.
.
What no one in the West can face the reality that Vladimir Putin is a Russian hero? Vladimir Putin’s popularity in Russia and elsewhere is undeniable . Vladimir Putin has always pursued whatever he believes to be in the best interests for Russia including the acquisition of Crimea. The Russian people have always viewed Crimea as part of their homeland because of centuries of shared history and the region’s mainly ethnic Russian population. Russia annexed Crimea in March following the ouster of a Russian-backed Ukrainian president in Kiev, prompting several waves of Western economic sanctions. Mr Putin’s popularity rather has surged at home thanks to his tough stance on the Ukraine crisis. Putin’s minor opponents are not really more effective a fact the West dreaming would likes to distort as being untrue. Putin’s various successes have gained him popularity at home, and have restored his confidence when acting abroad. China has proved a good friend when its interests align with his, and this has continued with the signing of thirty year gas deal earlier this year. Half the Countries abroad do support him too, including India. Whilst European Union and the Anglo-sphere have imposed false sanctions against Putin because of his supposed Russian actions in Ukraine; Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Central/South America haven’t.

From the very beginning of the manufactured civil war in the Ukraine, the Western powers have also revealed their intentions of creating a new “European Israel”.  Removing the Russian language and substituting Hebrew as the second official language of the Ukraine is just one quite obvious move next toward the establishment of a new Israeli enclave. The Anglo-American Axis is distinguished by one pursuit above all, it is its unquenchable thirst for oil and natural gas and Ukraine has it as well and it needs to buy it too. Russia is it;s present supplier rather so the West tends to opposes Russia.  I sincerely also don’t believe all this crap about Russia and Putin perceiving themselves as Adolf Hitler,

Recently we have seen disinformation and outright lies! As the credibility gap is widening and people in Europe and even in the US are increasingly seeking alternative news media  to find out the truth  a war of ignorant, negative words being played on the internet from Obama and PM Stephen Harper, Ukrainian ministers, etc., on the subject of Russia.. and no we do not have to believe all of their lies and spins..  such as  NATO Commander Paints Dark Picture of “An Imminent Russian Threat” as US-NATO Move to Further Isolate Russia  as  it seems they also do believe they alone now are right and everyone has to do it their way…  Threat to Russia? Ukraine-NATO Military Drills … nuts, dream on, but one day you all  will see the reality.  Both have concluded that even if there is a resolution to the current standoff over Crimea and eastern Ukraine, they  will never have a constructive relationship with Mr. Putin, cause he does not bend his will to their liking that easily. .  

Australia, Canada and Japan were unexpectedly  blocked by the Russians  from attending a diplomatic summit in Vienna NEXT which laid the groundwork for a possible future UN Security Council resolution, ceasefire and transition government in Syria,   blocked from attending a diplomatic summit  due to  their one sided support of a Obama, US vs Russia power  play. A proxy state of war between America and Russia now exists.  Putin has now  outwitted Obama in Syria anyway.

President Donald Trump “rightfully” threw his own very poor, war mongering intelligence community under the bus in favour of Russia notwithstanding. Predictably and not unexpected the biggest immediate loser may be Ukraine – a country the western media has pretty much abandoned, for good reasons. Ukraine is regularly ranked among the most corrupt countries in the world and allegations of double dealing, inflated contracts, bribery, and other claims among business and political elites are common.

Trump’s main contention with NATO is that smaller members expect to be defended by the U.S. but don’t want to share their burden financially.

While the NATO meeting in Brussels was an acknowledged triumph, with billions of dollars more being put up by member countries at a faster pace, the meeting with Russia may prove to be, in the long run, an even greater success. Many positive things will come out of that meeting.. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 18, 2018

Many others including Barack Obama have argued the same point, and many experts agree to the principle that other countries should pay more.

President Trump did not explicitly endorse the mutual-aid clause of the North Atlantic Treaty at the NATO summit.

NATO has a reputation for being a war monger, a European job creation program paid for by the USA,and Europe is making loads of money of the USA as well.

Trump objected to them of their not meeting their spending obligations. “Twenty-three of the 28 member nations are still not paying what they should be paying and what they are supposed to be paying for their defense,” Trump said. “I never asked once what the new NATO headquarters cost,” Trump said. “I refuse to do that. But it is beautiful.” he also said.

Europe responded that “ We have to invest in defense”, mere cheap words, actions speak louder than words.

“Trump’s comments weaken NATO, give Russia a license to cause trouble and thereby actually increase the risks of renewed conflict in the Balkans,” Wesley K. Clark, a former NATO supreme allied commander tweeted.

As former NATO Allied Commander, I know NATO’s Article 5 exists to PREVENT war. That’s why it’s only been invoked once – after 9/11. Montenegro is still sending troops to Afghanistan, for us. Worrying to hear Trump use Russian talking points with Tucker Carlson, about Montenegro.— Wes Clark (@GeneralClark) July 18, 2018

Canada suffers indirect economic blow back from sanctions against Russia: — Canada is experiencing indirect economic fallout from the sanctions it and other countries have imposed against Russia, federal Finance Minister Joe Oliver acknowledged Tuesday. June 02, 2015

Is Russia invading Ukraine or are the US, Ukraine invading Russia?  https://putin1hero.wordpress.com/2015/06/20/is-russia-invading-ukraine-or-are-the-us-ukraine-invading-russia/

When specifically asked about Trump, Trudeau reiterated his views on Putin.

“As I said, we condemn Russia and the way Vladimir Putin engages in international affairs,” he said.

During a high-profile meeting in Helsinki on Monday, Trump said he didn’t see “any reason why” Russia would have interfered in the 2016 U.S. election, despite the findings from his own intelligence agencies.

When asked directly on Monday if he held Russia “accountable for anything,” Trump said he held “both countries responsible.”

That’s sparked controversy around the world, including in Trump’s own Republican Party.

Trump’s meeting with Putin came just days after a special prosecutor in the United States indicted 12 Russian agents for stealing Democratic Party documents to help him win the vote.

Trudeau’s comments come during one of the most tense periods in Canada-U.S. relations in recent years due to an ongoing trade war that has seen the U.S. impose tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum and Canada bring in retaliatory tariffs on dozens of U.S. goods July 1.

The U.S. served notice this week it was launching complaints against Canada and other nations at the World Trade Organization over their retaliatory tariffs.

Why NOW  is there such an obvious need to lie on the part of Western reporters, where else do they lie now.. can we trust now any of them? NO! IT SEEMS! Note . the crappy English, Western, Great Britain – BBC reporting are totally biassed against the Russians now  and note this especially when it seems to be a Jewish reporter.. I did Notice that too easily too.. The Jewish media such as Times   seem to really hate Russians, and not just the Muslims and it is mostly because of the Orthodox Christianity   which differs significantly,  and the Catholic eastern Christianity, from the mostly North American Judaic influenced  Protestant Christianity too. I was also now surprised how much the Irish Times falsely hates the Russians too and so much hate in the media reporting.. this is crappy.  Russia has it has nearly always been, the target of US hostility. and this cold war all started by General Eisenhower who hated it that the Russians did not submit to him, his authority.. many Americans do falsely hate others who do not worship them.. SADLY WE MEET OFTEN IN REAL LIFE THE PERSON WHO CANNOT SEE THE TRUTH, THEY CANNOT FACE IT, BUT CAN ONLY SEE AND HEAR WHAT THE DEVIL ALLOWS THEM..

The defining characteristic of the new liberal elitist ideology   is hatred of President Trump and Putin. Their brand visibly is selfishness, bigotry and hate. Under they guise of globalization, automation, centralization and uncontrolled immigration they don’t really care about democratic norms. The elites also  don’t really care about the rule of law, or love, as they just hate. There is nothing – not more jobs, not higher incomes, not even less risk of nuclear war – that matters more to these elitists then domination and hate.This Liberal elitist ideology brought enormous benefits to the elite themselves: even their own astonishing increases in wealth, booming urban centers, a fabulous quality of life for those fortunate enough to be a critical part of the elites while the rest of persons were the negative victims of the elites.  The Liberals, Liberal media have not been successful world wide in their clearly expression of  hatred towards others, Trump and Putin world wide. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2018/06/15/canada-u-s-relations-at-all-time-low-after-trade-tiff/

First, the very people who have been loudest in attacking President Trump about his performance at the Helsinki summit are the people who failed to protect America from Russian meddling in 2016. The very intensity and nastiness of former CIA Director Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence Clapper is an attempt to distract attention from their failure to protect America. It was their duty in 2016 – not candidate Trump’s.

Second, the Trump administration has been far tougher on Russia than President Obama ever dreamed of being. The Trump administration is taking real actions designed to weaken Russia and force Putin to change his aggressive behavior. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2018/07/18/newt-gingrich-truth-about-trump-putin-and-obama.html

Smoke and Mirrors

Smoke and Mirrors, the obscuring or embellishing of the truth of a situation with misleading or irrelevant information

.

Recreational marijuana will officially become legal in Canada on Oct. 17, 2018, Majority of Americans oppose it.  Nearly 40 percent of Canadian adults—more than 11 millions people—intended to consume pot. Consumers of legal age (set at 19 everywhere except Quebec and Alberta, where it will be 18) will also be able to purchase legal weed online, but Canadians will face strict  regulations surrounding where they can consume the drug. Canada’s bill Bill C-45, also lets provinces entirely handle the distribution and sales of marijuana — up to letting provincial governments directly manage and staff all pot stores by themselves. Provinces will be able to impose tougher rules, such as raising the minimum age.

.

Growing pot at home in Manitoba,  Quebec  could land you a ticket from police,  it will be illegal under the prevailing provincial cannabis law.Quebec’s bill applying the law, Bill 157, does not permit it.“If your neighbour denounces you, you will get a ticket,”

.

Premier-designate Doug Ford, Ontario  Progressive Conservatives  says he will focus on selling in government-run stores and the province plans a ban on recreational pot consumption in public spaces and workplaces, allowing it only in private residences, though medical marijuana use will be permitted anywhere that cigarette smoking is allowed.  Pot remains illegal in Canada until the new law goes into effect in October.

.

Canada, like the US, is part of international drug treaties that explicitly ban legalizing marijuana.  Canada will be, in effect, in violation of international law  by legalizing marijuana. Canada, signed on to three major international drug policy treaties: the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs of 1961, the Convention on Psychotropic Drugs of 1971, and the United Nations Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances of 1988. Combined, the treaties require participants to limit and even prohibit the possession, use, trade, and distribution of drugs outside of medical and scientific purposes, and work together to stop international drug trafficking. Canada could face diplomatic backlash by legalizing pot.

.

Meanwhile, alcohol still is linked to 88,000 deaths each year in the US. In Canada as well.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2018/02/14/the-truth-still-even-about-alcohol/

.

American border officials will start engaging in “extreme vetting” of Canadians “in relation to consumption of cannabis.” Canadian travelers will face heightened US border scrutiny and that they should expect to see more drug-sniffing dogs at high-traffic ports of entry post-legalization. .

.

Canadians Who’ve Used Pot Can Be Forever Barred From Entering the United States.  There has already been  an increasing number of Canadians being put on the inadmissibility list simply for admitting to past use. It’s illegal to cross the border with pot, even when entering into a state where the drug is now legal. Under the US federal immigration law, foreigners can be refused entry or even permanently barred from the States for attempting to enter with a controlled substance, for violating the drug laws of the US or any other country, and even for admitting to past drug use. Canadians on the no-entry list who want to visit the United States can apply for an inadmissibility waiver, but each waiver costs about $585 (US) and lasts one to five years, and so the process is a lifelong headache and a significant financial hurdle for the people who cross frequently for business, vacations, personal or family matters.

.

Americans also do feel U.S. relations have a better chance at improving in the year ahead with traditionally hostile nations such as North Korea and Russia than they do with allies such as Britain and Canada. Russia’s changing role in world affairs, a modernized armed forces along with China’s world wide growing influence, and friendship with Russia is at the root of the irrational Russophobia being peddled so passionately in Canada, UK. Western Liberal ideologues that cannot conceive of any relationship with Russia other than as a deadly or defeated foe, their condition of achieving a semblance of stability and peace in the world, is off to a false premise that will fail. No one has ever conquered Russia, and supporting the war by Ukraine is undoubtedly just a pretext.  Do they  really believe that Crimea means less to Russia than Alaska to the U.S.? The United States still does needs cooperation with Russia and China in many of the most pressing global issues of the day . And Europe and Russia go back together for centuries, back to the times of the Grand Duchy of Moscow.

Russia expressed disappointment over Canada’s decision to impose more actions over it. Additionally, Moscow vowed “revenge” against such decision saying that Canada is not improving international cooperation rather it is increasing the tensions.  Moscow recently said that it will result to retaliatory measures following Canada’s sanctions.  https://putin1hero.wordpress.com/2016/03/24/canada/

The basic, central or critical point of why many like Trump, Putin, Russia and others do not.  Is the Christian religion, Matthew 12- 30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.  https://putin1hero.wordpress.com/2018/06/06/the-crux-of-the-matter/

.

The Canadian government is risking making pot more accessible to kids and people with drug use disorders.  It could lead to more use and misuse by making pot cheaper and more available,  easier access could also pose a risk for people who can’t control their cannabis consumption. Marijuana   does carry some risks: dependence and overuse, accidents, nondeadly overdoses that lead to mental anguish and anxiety, and, in rare cases, psychotic episodes.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2017/01/21/war-on-drugs/

.

More than half (52 per cent) of Canadian employers said they’re concerned or very concerned about the implications of legalized marijuana on the workplace, according to a report by the Conference Board of Canada.Among those concerned, 57 per cent cited workplace safety, followed by impairment or intoxication at work (39 per cent); increased use of the drug in and out of the workplace (21 per cent); testing for impairment (20 per cent); managing needs related to accommodation and disclosure (15 per cent); and the cost, including covering medical marijuana and other financial affects on the organization (15 per cent).

.

Canadian military also is concerned about the  cannabis use. Marijuana use raises safety and operational concerns.The military has restrictions on use of alcohol.   Alcohol has been banned on certain Canadian overseas missions, marijuana may face the same restrictions and marijuana restrictions could be similar and even wider ranging in some functions, such as pilots.

.

The Canadian Bill C-46, which was tabled at the same time as the main pot legislation, includes new powers for police and harsher penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.The new law will strengthen the impaired driving laws to help better protect Canadians from alcohol and drug-impaired drivers.The police can require a roadside breath test for any driver. The crucial change is they will no longer need reasonable suspicion the person has been drinking. Drivers who refuse this test face a criminal charge with similar penalties to an impaired driving conviction. Canadian police officers can now use roadside screening devices that test saliva for the presence of cocaine, methamphetamine and THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.Canada will now be setting a “per se” level for THC in the blood within two hours of driving, meaning police can lay an impaired driving charge based solely on the blood test results without needing to further prove impairment.The per se levels are set through regulations, not the legislation itself. The government has already proposed its levels, based on nanograms per millilitre of blood:

  • A THC level between 2 and 5 ng would be a lower-level offence with a fine of up to $1000;
  • A THC level above 5 ng would come with the same penalties as an alcohol-impaired driving conviction, including mandatory minimum penalties of a $1000 fine on a first offence, 30 days imprisonment on a second offence and 120 days imprisonment on a third offence;
  • A mixture of a THC level above 2.5 ng and a blood alcohol concentration above 50 mg per 100 mL would have the same penalties as above.
  • .

The Provinces may add additional penalties on top of this.

.

Consuming even small amounts of cannabis shortly before driving could put someone over these limits. The government has said that  it is taking a “zero-tolerance” approach.

.

The Liberals see legalizing marijuana as a lucrative opportunity, increased tax revenue too..

.
Many people will tell you marijuana is not dangerous. Consider who is telling you that. Are these the same people who are using it or are trying to sell you some pot?
.
Most ostrich alcoholic  drinkers rarely admit they are alcoholics , that they are heavy drinkers or that they will suffer any negatives side effects such as cancer due to their drinking. In other words  Most ostrich alcoholic  drinkers are liars. Alcohol’s negative health impacts are undeniable. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2016/02/21/most-drinkers-are-liars/
.
The Cost of substance use in Canada tops $38 billion, with booze and tobacco presently on top.with a staggering toll of 67,515 deaths. The study by the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction and the Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research, was based on health, justice, lost productivity and other costs. We do need to think more carefully as we move toward legalizing recreational cannabis. Canadians need to be  aware of the ongoing and escalating human and economic costs.  More than one alcoholic drink a day could take years off your life. According also to  other researchers, roughly 20 per cent of all violent crime would not have occurred if the perpetrator was not under the influence of or seeking alcohol. Alcohol ‘directly causes’ seven forms of cancer. Governments across Canada, all put together, got roughly $10.5 billion in revenue and taxes from the sale of alcohol in 2013-2014, according to Statistics Canada, still much less than the $14.6 billion that the researchers estimate alcohol cost. Reports also do  says alcohol harm on the rise for Canadian women. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2018/05/31/who-is-next-2/

Sexual Harassment

 

no rcmp

 

The RCMP Is Facing More than 2,400 Harassment Claims from Former and Current Employees. 1,500 claims were expected in a massive class-action settlement, but roughly 2,400 have been filed to date—and a lawyer involved in the case suggests that number could still rise dramatically. An Extension was made for women filing claims in historic RCMP sexual harassment settlement.

sexual harassment

A Federal Court judge has granted an extension for women who were sexually harassed while working for the RCMP to file their claims for compensation. Both former and current employees of the RCMP—have come forward with claims of gender-based discrimination and sexual harassment during their time on the force, with more expected to emerge in the coming weeks. RCMP management has let the woman down. “instead of succeeding and thriving in a supportive and inclusive workplace, many women have suffered careers scarred by gender and sexual discrimination, bullying and harassment.” The RCMP has now acknowledged it has a problem with gender and sexual discrimination

RCMP2

Judge Ann Marie McDonald extended the deadline from today to May 22 for primary class members with exceptional circumstances. Last May, McDonald approved the unprecedented settlement that will pay up to $220,000 to the women who worked for the national force over the past 40 years . http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/rcmp-extension-sexual-harassemnt-1.4526292?cmp=rss

Pigs
A former RCMP constable Heli Kijanen—and she’s the single mother who spearheaded the initiative in 2011 that what would soon become the class-action lawsuits related to harassment and gender-based discrimination within the force, initiated with counsel Alexander (Sandy) Zaitzeff, a Thunder Bay lawyer. “It was an old boys’ club, and they didn’t want a single mom there—at least, that’s how I was made to feel.” The harassment made me feel like a useless human being who didn’t deserve to take up any space,” she says. “I went into the RCMP to protect and serve my community, but I was made to feel helpless and vulnerable. Who’s supposed to protect the person whose job it is to protect others? ” Wwll they all failed at it.. “Her advice for women facing harassment in the workplace? “Do not remain silent. Don’t try to fight it on your own. Be strong, open up, ask for help and don’t stop until you find someone who will listen. And feel free to come and talk to me. I’m always here to help.”

RCMP sexual- wolf _
Police in two provinces investigate a growing number of sexual misconduct allegations against RCMP doctors also , a high-ranking member of the federal government says he’s keeping a close eye on the cases. So what! Woman says RCMP doctor ‘violated’ her during exam for potential recruits. “Lawyer David Klein, whose firm is one of two representing female RCMP employees in a sexual harassment class action, said several clients had informed him the Halifax physician was nicknamed “Dr. Fingers.” He said several clients told him the doctor gave them unneeded rectal exams, inserted his fingers into their vaginas without good reason and spent unusually long periods rubbing their breasts with his hands.” Source: https://globalnews.ca/news/4000328/woman-says-rcmp-doctor-violated-her/

sexualharassment
Survivors of sexual harassment and assault in the Canadian Armed Forces in two proposed class action lawsuits against the Government of Canada served their evidence this week responding to Canada’s attempt to strike their claims. These class actions seek compensation for the Government’s failure to protect them from sexual assault, sexual harassment, and gender-based discrimination during their service. The Government’s approach to this lawsuit runs counter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s recent statements regarding the obligations of Government . “It’s frustrating to read Prime Minister Trudeau’s comments given that the Government is taking the opposite approach to our litigation”, said Amy Graham, a plaintiff in the proposed class action. “By trying to stop us from proceeding through a class action, the Government wants to force each of us to go forward alone, preventing us from resolving this issue and putting it behind us.”
