Canadian health care is high price yet low quality . According to a study released by Vancouver’s Fraser Institute, despite heavy investment in health care, the quality of Canada’s care is “moderate to low” by most measures. Canada doesn’t get much bang for all those taxpayer bucks. Too many people are too indifferent cause they falsely do think it is someone else job to deal with it.
The University of Regina is warning about an increase in gastrointestinal illnesses, often associated with food poisonings, dirty unwashed hands, and very contagious next, on campus. The university said Friday it is taking the matter seriously and working with the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region in light of the increase in cases. Extra cleaning by housekeeping and custodial staff is underway around campus to stop the illness from spreading. People who have experienced nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and headaches are being asked to stay away from public places for 48 hours after their symptoms have cleared. For people working where food is served, they are asked to stay home for 72 hours after recovering from symptoms.
Gastritis is a common medical problem. Up to 10% of people who come to a hospital emergency department with abdominal pain have gastritis and yet most hospitals still tend to respond very poorly to it. Why?
A hospital emergency room might not be the best place for the sick and elderly. The risk of acute infection – mostly respiratory and gastrointestinal viruses – following a trip to the emergency room is three times higher among the elderly.. Long-term care patients who spent a few hours in an emergency facility were more likely to get sick in two to seven days after returning to their nursing homes.
It is also very unacceptable that the Canadian federal government is so readily to take credit for any of it’s programs but it falsely passes the buck when it has to be held accountable especially for medical inadequacies, or the police inadequacies too.
Which now reminds me when was the last time actually that a medical administrator, doctor, nurse, hospital worker was charged with criminal abuse of a sick person too?

The mobile phone carriers make money – lots and lots of money and it’s simply too easy for them to get more greedy with the easy money
CRTC rejects plea from small internet providers seeking wireless access. CRTC shuts down appeal on wireless access filed by smaller ISPs Ruling means cellphone bills likely to remain high. The CRTC has been facing the usual complaints about carrier collusion, as well as hearing arguments from smaller Internet service providers about a lack of competition in the wireless industry.
Canadians typically pay about $46 US per month for wireless service, or nearly double the $25 average among 22 developed nations, according to a 2015 report from the Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
Canadian wireless carriers are also exceptionally profitable, and ranked near the top of the survey in earnings.
The previous Conservative government fought an at-times vocal war against the big carriers, and attempted to inject new competition into the market through special auctions of wireless spectrum. Up to the useless Lieberals now to do something about continually increasing wireless bills — the Big Three all recently announced price hikes — ” We need relief for consumers and businesses who are being hit hard,” CRTC’s Rejection Of Access To Big Telcos’ Networks ‘A Licence For Price-Gouging,’ OpenMedia Says “In effect, this amounts to a licence for price-gouging, as our telecom giants can continue to block new providers and charge Canadians exorbitant prices,”
CRTC is showing inconsistency in its approaches to wired broadband versus wireless. There is much bigger profit in the wireless sector..

THE GOVERNMENTS CAN ALWAYS FIND MONEY FOR WHAT THEY WANT BUT NOT FOR THE CITIZENS
The provincial auditor’s report had said that the government has lost control of physician salaries. Quebec overpaid specialists nearly $400-million since 2010, the auditor found. Critics pointed out that Mr. Couillard and Health Minister Gaétan Barrette – both former specialists – are doing nothing to recover the overpayments while they cut daycare, dental services for poor children and a host of other services. “It’s austerity everywhere in Quebec except for the physician colleagues of the Premier and the Minister of Health,” Parti Québécois Leader Pierre Karl Péladeau said.
The introduction of user fees is a serious threat to universal care, the critics have said, including the Canadian Medical Association, Quebec Medical Association, Canadian Doctors for Medicare, and Médecins québécois pour le régime publique (MQRP as they had asked the Quebec Government to hold off on regulating fees in October.
Charging patients at doctors offices and clinics for medically necessary care is not acceptable. It strikes at the heart of the principle that access to health care should be based on need rather than ability to pay
Some physicians have already outlined two choices to Quebec patients, pay $250 up front for a quick test on the spot at the clinic or wait three months for a hospital appointment.
The hidden charges billed for care, medication and services included — $600 for eye drops, $30 for filling out a form, $25 for a five-minute phone consultation, or renewing a prescription, and $135 for an ultrasound at a clinic that served as an overflow for a hospital. and it confirms extra or shady billing threatens access to medical services and care as billing patients directly is not a marginal practice. It’s widespread among family physicians and specialists.
Many are feeling indignant about the injustice of having to pay amounts they considered exorbitant for medical care. Some said they could not afford to pay — they needed the money for groceries or rent.
Adopted last week, the Quebec Health Minister Gaétan Barrette’s Bill 20 included a set of amendments to legalize fees charged to patients in clinics for insured services, commonly called “accessory fees.” The list of regulated ancillary fees will come later, after the government hires an independent accounting firm to determine real costs.. The public was not consulted on Bill 20
Citizens are calling on Quebec government to suspend the extra fees and on the new federal Health Minister Jane Philpott “to act immediately to force Quebec to respect the Canada Health Act,”
Canada’s ridiculous Health care system is now also very poorly managed, in fact it is mismanaged for decades too, just like all of the federal and provincial civil public servants, RCMP, cops, now are as well and all now undeniably too.. Putting more of your tax dollars to cover the poor , pretentious, inadequate work of our politicians, civil and public savants is a continual waste, an attempt to fill a bucket full of large draining holes.

In the last year 2/3 of users complained about the internet in Canada, even that it is too costly, Bell got the highest number of complaints.
We all should be really concerned now whether Internet service providers such as Bell, Verizon are misleading customers with slower-than-advertised speeds. Your Internet provider could be mostly short-changing You, consumers by charging them for faster broadband speeds and failing to deliver the speeds being advertised. Now each company should provide copies of all the disclosures they have made to customers, as well as copies of any testing they may have done to study their Internet speeds. We deserve the Internet speeds they pay for. But, it turns out, too many of us may be paying for one thing, and getting another. It seems they all still lie, are guilty of false, misleading advertisements. Most broadband providers claiming to offer super-fast Internet connections may be rather delivering service that is slower than advertised. It is immoral that the broadband speeds that you pay for are so unsubstantiated in reality.
THERE ARE TOO MANY PIGS IN THE INTERNET, CELL PHONE PARLOUR STILL
BELL HAS TO CAP IT’S INTERNET CUSTOMERS’ USAGES, DOWNLOADS AND OFTEN TOO, TO MAKE THE ROOM FOR THE WIRELESS PHONES AS WELL . BELL REALLY DOES NOT HAVE EXISTING ADEQUATE CAPACITY FOR BOTH, NOT EVEN FOR THE HIGH SPEED INTERNET SERVICES IN ALL AREAS OF CANADA. IT IS CLEARLY TOO CHEAP TO SPEND CAPITAL TO DO THIS ?
Consumers are being caught in the middle of greedy telecomm companies.. It’s the Telcomm companies who have rooked us all and laughing all the way the bank.
WHEN IT NOW COMES TO THE ISP, INTERNET PRICING THERE FIRSTLY ARE STILL NO VIABLE ARGUMENTS, OR PROOF THAT THE OVERALL NETWORKING SYSTEM CAPACITIES ARE BEING EVEN NOW OVER BURDENED BY A FEW PERSONS, HEAVY USERS FOR RATHER SOLELY THE MAIN UNDENIABLE PROBLEM IS THAT TELECOMMUNICATION GIANTS FIRMS THEMSELVES HAVE TOO OFTEN MISLED, DO MISLEAD THE PUBLIC AS TO THE DEGREE OF THEIR ACTUAL SYSTEM CAPABILITIES, SPEEDS AND EVEN THE RELIABILITY OF THEIR SERVICES NOW AS WELL AS I HAVE EVEN DETAILED THIS FOR YEARS NOW TOO.
Bell, Shaw and Rogers still can’t seem to provide good customer services! why? It is basically cause they still do not care for the customers as they still are too greedy solely for the customer’s money..
The top 3 “Canada’s Worst Cell Phone Bill” belong to Bell, Rogers, Virgin and next no matter how their spin doctors lie about it, make false promises to change it they all are still bad in reality.
A probe should also be focused on so-called interconnection arrangements, or contractual deals that Internet service providers strike with other networks for the mutual exchange of data. customers paying a premium for higher speeds may be experiencing a disruption in their service thanks to technical problems and business disputes over the interconnection agreements. The Internet service provider interconnection has a substantial impact on consumer Internet performance – sometimes too severely. It should also review the actual speeds delivered to consumers over “the last mile,” a term that refers to the point where a telecommunication chain reaches a retail consumer’s devices.
The customers who are paying a premium fee for higher internet speeds could be experiencing a disruption to their service due to technical issues brought about by business disputes in these interconnection deals. According to a study conducted last year [PDF] by the Measurement Lab Consortium (M-Lab), customers can suffer from slow internet speeds because of these relationships. There is a strong “possibility that interconnection arrangements may in some instances render irrelevant any benefit” of paying for a “premium” option
Bell it is a poorly regulated monopoly ..
BELL or BCE HAS SADLY NOW BEEN GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER.. WITH MUCH TOO MUCH FALSE ADVERTISING, CONSUMER ABUSES, PRICE GOUGING, POOR SUPPORT SERVICES…. ANY DOUBTS AS TO HOW BAD BELL IS.. NOTICE THAT MY BELL POSTING TEND TO SAY IN THE TOP TEN OF ALL MY SUBJECT POSTS.

Canadians should demand better by real drug enforcement and also demand drug addiction-prevention and treatment.
The Highlights includes concerns about pot shrinking the brains of teenagers, an, increases in drug-impaired drivers, severe personality changes, lack of productivity, birth defects, workplace absences, domestic violence and health problems
Marijuana refers to the dried leaves, flowers, stems, and seeds from the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa. The plant contains the mind-altering chemical delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other related compounds. Extracts with high amounts of THC can also be made from the cannabis plant The users are hurting themselves firstly..
SHORT-TERM EFFECTS of marijuana
- Sensory distortion
- increased Anxiety
- Poor coordination of movement
- Lowered reaction time
- After an initial “up,” the user feels sleepy or severely depressed
- Increased heartbeat (and risk of heart attack)
LONG-term effects of marijuana
- Reduced resistance to common illnesses (colds, bronchitis, etc.)
- Suppression of the immune system
- Growth disorders
- Increase of abnormally structured cells in the body
- Reduction of male sex hormones
- Rapid destruction of lung fibers and lesions (injuries) to the brain could be permanent
- Reduced sexual capacity
- Study difficulties: reduced ability to learn and retain information
- Apathy, drowsiness, lack of motivation
- Personality and mood changes
- Inability to understand things clearly
Long-term marijuana use has been linked to mental illness in some users, such as:
- temporary hallucinations—sensations and images that seem real though they are not
- temporary paranoia—extreme and unreasonable distrust of others
- worsening symptoms in patients with schizophrenia (a severe mental disorder with symptoms such as hallucinations, paranoia, and disorganized thinking)
Marijuana use has also been linked to other mental health problems, such as:
- Severe depression
- Incrased anxiety
- suicidal thoughts among teens
- more relationship problems
A study of 129 college students found that, among those who smoked the drug at least twenty-seven of the thirty days before being surveyed, critical skills related to attention, memory and learning were seriously diminished. Students who use marijuana have lower grades and are less likely to get into college than nonsmokers. They simply do not have the same abilities to remember and organize information compared to those who do not use these substances.
A study of postal workers found that employees who tested positive for marijuana had 55% more accidents, 85% more injuries and a 75% increase in being absent from work.
Because a tolerance builds up, marijuana can lead users to consume stronger drugs to achieve the same high. The vast majority of cocaine users (99.9%) began by first using a “gateway drug” like marijuana, cigarettes or alcohol
Undeniably too many Drug abusers and addicts end up on social aid or may commit crime to buy drugs, legal or illegal, and any increase in users means potential increases in crime. The Crimes committed while under the influence of drugs will increase too. The sole response is not legalization but to do everything we can to prevent addiction.
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?
Drugs like alcohol too are essentially poisons. The negative side effects depend on amount taken
Yes many bad drugs have another liability: they directly affect the mind. They can distort the user’s perception of what is happening around him or her. As a result, the person’s actions may be odd, irrational, inappropriate and even destructive.
Marijuana smoke contains 50% to 70% more cancer-causing substances than tobacco smoke.
Cannabis is one of the few drugs which causes abnormal cell division which leads to severe hereditary defects
No medications are currently available to treat marijuana addiction directly

We seem to get tidbits of citizen concern information out of Ottawa, STILL EVEN from the Conservative Harper government, mostly merely when it is near the election times, when it seems we only count and they now more seriously do want to get our votes..
Even Prime Minister Stephen Harper by his approaches, objectives, commitments, seems to be trying to reassure firstly his selected elements in his base thus to be assured of their support and votes and too often. “It’s all about winning votes” No I do not think that Trudeau is or will be any better as well.. “ but Harper is so focused on winning votes of particular groups, he does not seem to realize that winning votes in one group may cancel out votes in another group. How about a leader who is looking at the big picture, like an economy that works for everybody, like a clean environment that benefits everybody, like a justice system that treats everyone fairly? That’s what I’ll vote for.”
And what about a leader that actually keeps his past election promises? of transparency, accountability and much more? Even Stephen Harper has not been great at that as well..
IF THE NEW CONSERVATIVE MINISTERS AND PRIME MINISTER STEPHEN HARPER NOW ARE LIARS AND YOU CANNOT TRUST THEM TO TELL THE TRUTH MOSTLY THEN WHAT OTHER MINISTERS CAN YOU PRESENTLY TRUST?
Now why are the clearly foolish Canadian justice ministers, cops, so foolish still that they do now even think that they can turn the clock backwards and continue again doing the very same bad things now that they all have even been exposed for what they really are world wide even.. they are bad people who abuse citizens and obstruct justice and do need to be put into prison themselves.

PARIS — France is ordering manufacturers to inform consumers how long they can expect their TV, cell phone or other appliance to last — before they buy it. A new French government decree is aimed at fighting so-called planned obsolescence. That is when companies falsely design strategies to limit the life span of appliances, so that consumers will have to replace them. The measure also now requires manufacturers to inform vendors how long spare parts for an appliance will continue to be produced. The vendor is then required to inform the buyer, in writing. Violators face up to 15,000 euros ($16,800) in fines. A similar French measure coming into effect next year will require manufacturers to replace or repair faulty appliances for free for the first two years after purchase. and how about in Canada?

Canada has blocked an investigation into Alberta’s tailings ponds by NAFTA’s environmental watchdog.
“It shows that the Canadian government is willing to circumvent institutions that make sure Canada upholds environmental laws.”
It’s the third time in a year Canada has successfully stopped NAFTA’s scrutiny of its environmental behaviour.
Two environmental groups and three private citizens had asked the commission to investigate whether tailings ponds were leaking into nearby rivers and creeks in northern Alberta.
In 2014, with Mexico’s support, it stopped investigations into polar bear protection and B.C. salmon farms.
And “Canada, the oil sands’ poor image isn’t just a question of bad PR. Anti-oil sands sentiment has made it nearly impossible to build the necessary pipeline connections producers need to get all that oil to market. TransCanada Corp.’s crossborder Keystone XL pipeline is in danger of being axed by U.S. President Barack Obama. The industry’s backup plan, Enbridge Inc.’s Northern Gateway pipeline to shipping terminals on the B.C. coast, has become bogged down in political and environmental controversy. Even TransCanada’s Energy East proposal, a sort of backup for the backup, has encountered unexpected political resistance in Ontario and Quebec—two provinces the diluted bitumen must transit through on its way to refineries in New Brunswick.”
SADLY ECONOMICS DO CONTROL THE VIABILITY OF CANADA’S OIL SANDS PROJECTS. Economics alone SHOULD NOT now control the direct oil sand extraction process, engineering as well and also now not all firms are equally environmentally conscious, concerned so they all do now need to be better managed here, something that has falsely not been adequately done for sure so far.. and yes neither by the provincial or the federal governments HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB HERE. GREED AND PROFIT CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO OVER RULE SAFETY, THE ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES, etc

where to date Acanac has lied, abused me, not provided their promised internet services. Well?
Here is just some of what others have also said about them that reflect my dealings with them too.
“Absolutely horrible customer service, they are there to take your money and not provide any support at all. “ ” Speed is not stable and tech support is very slow. I’ve used Acanac for more than 5 years, rarely have issue with them but once there’s one, it takes weeks to resolve it. very disappointing.” “ STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!!!! This is the worse service I have ever been given in my life.” “ But the customer service is really disappointing. “ “. Speed has been on the slow to very slow side and I have had my connection lost completely 3 times. “ “ I used this service for almost 3 years, and wana say that Acanac service becomes the worse and worse, so I cancelled my contract with it. Reasons: 1. Low speed, 2.I didn’t have the entrance to the Internet during several hours almost every day for the last half year. 3. When I tried to reach their technical support service it was a real headache for me. I think they simply ignored my request, but they answering me immediately when I sent the cancelation notice to them. I have to state that Acanac doesn’t care about it’s customers. “ “ -Service was good, until your service slows or or stops working and you have to reach out for help. “ “ Finally get useless support email 16 hours after sending in my ticket suggesting I check the cable to the demarc etc etc. Issues continued for a week, customer service never improved. “ “ absolutely terrible customer service. “ “ Acanac has made my life a living hell. Telephone wait times are 45-50 minutes if it is your lucky day or no one answers. Even if someone answers you will quickly realise the guy has no clue or has no inclination to help you. Once the guy was dumb enough to ask me “why did you not send us an email?” Duh!!! I do not have internet?!!! SO PLEASE, PLEASE BE WITHOUT AN INTERNET THAN SIGNING UP WITH THIS COMPANY. THEY ARE HORRIBLE. “ “ However, when you need technical support, you could be put on the phone waiting for hours.. “ Much is promised when inquiring by their sales people, however tech support is non-existent. DO NOT USE UNLESS YOU ENJOY SUFFERING. Tech response is hidden behind a very primitive email service. DSL connection speed is no better than dial up. “ “Internet goes down at least 4- 6 times a year. You have to call them to get good customer service. Their email and text service is the worst, specially the email response is just a copy and paste , they don’t even read what your problem is.” “ After 2 years, I have had enough – Never again, and I will make sure I tell as many people as I can to never give this company any business “ http://www.canadianisp.ca/cgi-bin/isp_comment_totals.cgi?f=Comments&ispid=52
