Racism in Canada

racism (1)

Racism is the belief that characteristics and abilities can be attributed to people simply on the basis of their race and that some racial groups are superior to others. Racism and discrimination have been used as powerful weapons encouraging fear or hatred of others in times of conflict and war, and even during economic downturns. Racism is a well known issue. From racial profiling to other issues such as affirmative action, police brutality against minorities and the history of slavery and the rising resentment against immigrants.

.

There are notable records of racism, slavery in Canada from Canada’s early days, even the 17th century. More than half of all Canadian slaves were aboriginal and the United Empire Loyalists brought their slaves with them after leaving what became the United States. In 1793 the Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada, John Graves Simcoe, passed the Act Against Slavery making it illegal to bring slaves into the colony, and mandating the gradual emancipation of all slaves in Upper Canada. In 1834 slavery was outlawed in Canada but not racism.

.

  Rasicm  is alive and well in our Canadian Justice system”   Under this regime, Black and First Nations don’t just go to the back of the bus, they go under it.” Only the non-white officers are held accountable. The white RCMP officers get off scot-free, even though they did exactly the same thing as their less white colleagues.   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. You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors,  police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers, bad PERSONS   who STILL DO say that ALL OF  bad people, INCLUDING the ALCOHOLICS, the bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. The RCMP maximum 10 days punishment is always absurd, permanent dismissal is what is always needed with the bad cops and their clearly bad superiors who had managed and hired them too.. Bad solicitor generals and bad Justice Ministers, bad Premiers, bad Prime Ministers as well should all be fired ASAP.   Canadian Justice is too often an empty one. The establishment cover ups for it’s own and prevails.

.

Alberta has become the devil’s belt and it is no longer the Bible Belt or God’s country, already has long been known to be a racist, red necked province that too readily hates others.. it also still has a high misrepresentation of natives arrested now as well.. It’s letter of the law oriented  law enforcement community, justice systems  are known to be bigoted as well even in my own direct experiences.  Incompetent, want-a-be Police rejects looking for a raise, promotion is too typical of the bad police enforcements in Alberta.. and so many of them too.. Stay away from Alberta!!!   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/04/26/even-why-up-to-30-somalis-murdered-in-alberta/

.

Racism often is accidental  but not always. It seems that many people who join supremacist groups do so at a young age, and a lot of recruiting by these various hate groups are targeted at children. And racism exusts often at the heart of the police force, in the US I traffic violation stops is the most common ways to raise police funds through fines, 90 per cent of those who received a ticket and 93 per cent of people arrested were black. The police routinely breached residents’ constitutional rights by stopping them without reasonable suspicion, arresting them without probable cause, and using unreasonable force against them.

.
Today, people of colour still face racism and stereotypes. .The North American Indian has experienced a great deal of racism. Although many people overlook or excuse the behavior it is still wrong. Even the justice system does not tend to care for its native sons and daughters. Most crimes against Native still go unpunished. Natives remain among the most economically disadvantaged groups in the country, and also do suffer from high levels of alcoholism and suicide.

.

OTTAWA — Aboriginal inmates in Canada make up too high a percentage of Canada’s prison population and tend to get harsher sentences and less programming, a report from the country’s prison watchdog said . More than 70 per cent of inmates in Manitoba are in provincial facilities. Statistics Canada reports 66 per cent of Manitoba inmates on remand and 69 per cent in sentenced custody are aboriginal. The OCI report also notes aboriginal offenders are less likely than non-aboriginal offenders to be granted parole, more likely to be in segregation, more likely to have been in prison before, are classified as higher risk and are more likely to reoffend after they are released. The statistics, says the report, are a sign of the corrections’ service failure to ensure aboriginal prisoners are getting the help they need. Aboriginals are severely overrepresented in federal jails: they account for 17.3 per cent of inmates but make up only four per cent of the Canadian adult population Predictions are that the numbers will go on as they have over the past decade – 131 per cent in the case of aboriginal women.

racism (2)

.
Chinese people are assumed to be smart, intelligent, short, and “yellow.” Having small eyes would have people automatically assuming you’re Chinese (or Asian). Young Black boys are assumed to be aggressive, dangerous and up to no good. This is an example of a stereotype Black people go through. They are assumed to be “dangerous.” White people are always assumed to be rich. Blonde girls are assumed to be dumb. We have all heard of the Polish, Newfies jokes.. One  main group of people that often faced with racism and discrimination are Gypsies. In Europe they have been persecuted to a similar extent as the Jews throughout history, including World War II and even now they are largely mistreated or ignored. The internet can also be a breeding ground harboring hatred. This is very serious as the number of hate sites that have sprung up in the recent years is shocking and also increasing at an alarming rate.

.
Racism has always been both an instrument of discrimination and a tool of exploitation. Even though it may be impossible to entirely prevent the amount of racism and discrimination that the people of colour receive, all racism is still unacceptable. Colored persons themselves are often racists too.

.
There is a systemic racism in health care as well. “People don’t like to see if there’s racism existing in the health-care system, but there definitely is.” During French and British Imperial days , racial bias was ingrained within the culture itself. The Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission has recommended that all levels of government augment “cultural competency training” in medical schools and the health system itself. A 2015 Auditor-General’s report highlighted disparities in health care provided to First Nations people in remote areas. It found about 400 nurses serve roughly 95,000 First Nations people in 85 indigenous health facilities in Ontario and Manitoba. The report found some facilities were in substandard states and that nurses were not thoroughly trained to deal with the needs of certain communities. Of 45 nurses interviewed, only one had completed compulsory courses in indigenous health offered by Health Canada.

And I am not convinced that our too often rather incompetent, racist , cost ineffective  national police, security forces, RCMP included now are capable of dealing with the Muslims terrorists especially  since they clearly cannot speak Russian or Arabic or any other foreign languages  for the most part still. A pair of basement-dwelling, recovering drug addicts with few resources, Nuttall and Korody were found guilty of terrorism-related crimes by a B.C. Supreme Court jury last year. No convictions have been entered, because their defence lawyers claim the pair was entrapped, that authorities seized on the couple unfairly, pulling them into a police-contrived plot to detonate three homemade pressure cooker bombs at the B.C. legislature on Canada Day, 2013 . THIS RCMP  OPERATION COST 900 THOUSAND DOLLARS

Infections- old problems in Hospitals

 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.

HEALTHCARE (1)

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 means inflammation of mucus lining of the stomach.
.

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?

.

Gastritis is a very troublesome disease and can give rise to many life threatening problems, if it is not treated in time.  There are several causes of gastritis. The most common causes of gastritis are: Aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs, Potassium supplements, Iron tablets, which may explain why many elderly patients have it too. Infections with bacteria, viruses, or fungi can cause gastritis. Worldwide, the most common cause of gastritis is infection with Helicobacter pylori bacteria. Viral or fungal gastritis may develop in people who have had a prolonged illness or an impaired immune system. For some people, a drug allergy or food poisoning can cause gastritis.
.
Atrophic gastritis is a form of gastritis found particularly in the elderly, where stomach cells are destroyed, potentially leading to pernicious anemia.The main symptoms of gastritis are loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, headache, and dizziness. There is pain and discomfort in the region of the stomach. Other symptoms are a coated tongue, foul breath, bad taste in the mouth, increased flow of saliva, scanty urination, a general feeling of uneasiness, and mental depression. In more chronic cases, the patient complaints of heartburn and a feeling of fullness in the abdomen, especially after meals. Generally, treatment for gastritis involves antacids and other medications aimed at reducing stomach acid, relieving symptoms, and promoting the healing of the stomach lining, as acid irritates the inflamed tissue.
 .
Gastroenteritis (also known as gastro, gastric flu, tummy bug   and stomach flu, (although unrelated to influenza) is inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, involving both the stomach and the small intestine (see also gastritis and enteritis) and resulting in acute diarrhea or by severe vomiting.. Infectious gastroenteritis which can often be seasonally common even in Hospitals now too may be caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites. And it is important to distinguish between bacterial and viral infections in regard to the treatment as well.. Bacteria, and parasites  can be treated with antibiotics but Viruses do not respond to antibiotics .  Noroviruses are the leading cause of foodborne disease outbreaks worldwide, and may soon eclipse rotaviruses as the most common cause of severe pediatric gastroenteritis. Norovirus gastroenteritis can cause significant morbidity and mortality among children, the elderly, and the immunocompromised. Also rotavirus, norovirus, gastritis, gastroenteritis, C-DIFFICILE, ARE ALL VERY QUICKLY SPREAD BUT NOT SO EASILY CURED and what many media fail to report is that both doctors and nurses themselves are too often the biggest carriers.  

hospital-deaths

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.

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/01/24/this-has-been-going-on-wrongfully-for-ages-unchecked-still/

.

Now  a St Luc Hospital nurse too easily  quarantined my mother as having a contagious disease in the hospital as a merely hunch, prevention medicine, a bad nurse practicing medicine, being a doctor without a license. So when I personally  next asked the nurse what specific disease my mother  had that  she was caring, curing her for, was it a Novavirus? Next the nurse  had  replied that she did not know, and she did not read the charts,  and what was she treating my mother then for? Merely going through the pretentious motions of caring for the patient again and again?  So next  I had asked the visiting Gastritis doctor as to what proof he had that my mother was sick with a contagious disease and  what the disease was called and he next replied to me that was a good question, he needed to look into it for he did not know himself.. The doctor next lifted the quarantine.   What about getting real medical care.

.

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.

.
AS USUAL I OFTEN ALSO DO ENCOUNTER THE CANADIAN OSTRICHES WHO SAY PUT YOUR HEAD IN THE SAND, DON’T WORRY EVERYTHING WILL TURN OUT FINE. DREAM ON.. ALL IT TAKES FOR EVIL PERSONS TO CONTINUE DOING EVIL IS FOR THE GOOD PEOPLE TO DO NOTHING ABOUT IT.
 .

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?

MOST DRINKERS ARE LIARS

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

Most Canadians drink alcohol but they really do not know health risks:  At least 3.1 million Canadians drank enough to be at risk for immediate injury and harm, with at least 4.4 million at risk for chronic health effects, such as liver cirrhosis and some cancers.  Alcohol is a known carcinogen, and the Canadian Cancer Society says there is no safe limit when it comes to cancer prevention.  Heavy drinking increases the risk for oral, pharyngeal and esophageal cancers by five times, for laryngeal cancer by 2 1/2 times, and colorectal and breast cancers by 50 per cent.. Alcohol affects and damages our cells, and  this can cause the cells in our bodies to develop into cancer..  There are seven types of cancer linked to alcohol – bowel, oesophageal (food pipe), larynx (voice box), mouth, pharynx (upper throat), breast (in women), and liver. There’s also mounting evidence that heavy drinking might be linked to pancreatic cancer.  .The risk of liver cirrhosis, brain damage and heart disease due to alcohol are all greater in women than men. Women are advised to drink less alcohol than men because they are much more vulnerable to alcohol’s harmful effects ,  if a woman has more than one drink a day, she increases her risk of car accidents and other traumatic injuries. Her risk of high blood pressure, stroke, suicide and breast cancer goes up. And drinking more than one drink a day also increases the risk that she will go on to abuse or become dependent on alcohol. And   alcohol remains at higher concentrations for longer periods of time in a woman’s body. This exposes her brain and other organs to more alcohol. So alcohol remains at higher concentrations for longer periods of time in a woman’s body. This exposes her brain and other organs to more alcohol. Binge drinking can cause alcohol poisoning, which can cause death.

The most common cancers caused by alcohol  are breast and bowel, although head and neck remain the higher risk and the biggest impact for men was bowel cancer, where one in 12 total cases (100) every year were caused by alcohol.

  Two-thirds of deaths in were men and statisticians noted that alcohol-related death rates were highest among 55- to 64-year-olds.

DRUNKS

Alcohol’s negative health impacts are undeniable. So visit the website at http://www.cancer.ca,  or call the Canadian Cancer Society Community Office.

Every year in Canada there are approximately 3,000 babies born with fetal alcohol syndrome disorder and there are approximately 330,000 Canadians living with FASD today.

Impaired driving is the leading cause of criminal death in the country.

“Alcohol harms individuals, families and communities and it’s crucial that, alongside effective local interventions and treatment for those that need it, we look more widely at what affects drinking behaviour in this country, such as marketing and pricing. “ “Unless we start taking this seriously and acknowledge the health risks that too much alcohol can cause the situation will only get worse.”

CANADA”S MEDICARE needs SERIOUS IMPROVEMENTS

medicare-canada (1)

We can all easily know that Canada has a Medicare system that is now supposed to provide free, full medical services Canada wide to all persons irrespective of age, gender, position in life. In reality now this pretentious Medicare system firstly does not deliver it’s responsibilities Canada wide.. 

 .
Secondly no one in reality enforces the health act, not the federal government, not the provincial governments.
 .
Thirdly the Medical professionals themselves here do act as God and they are the ones solely who decide who lives and who dies, and who gets treated and who does not as well.
 .
 Many persons who are fed up with the APPARENT INADEQUACIES even in the socialized medicine would like us to believe that a private medical system is better… and that is mere wishful thinking.. for even in a private system there are too often the same inadequacies, even for the same reasons, the apparent lack of supervision of medical personnel and services,
 .
 In addition there’s not only still an inadequate number of family doctors available to all of the sick patients, but  even too many existing family doctors are firstly overworked, thus they are not giving proper time, attention to all of their patients even. Many patients are waiting too  long of a time  to see a doctor too. And just cause you have a family doctor it still does not mean he or she are doing a good job now even  as well.
.

Canada’s health-care system compared to other public systems world-wide is a let down and the US private system also doesn’t score very well internationally.. There are many , many reasons for a start

.

Doctors  who are putting patients in danger,  have a lack of accountability , are over-billing for work ARE ALL always still unacceptable too.

.

LAZY INCOMPETENT OVER PAID  DOCTORS ARE IN A HURRY TO KILL THEIR PATIENTS RATHER THAN SAVE THEM

The no good Liberal government in Quebec and Medicare user fees

1cansda bad medicare

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 AssociationQuebec 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,” 

.
1MEDICARE CANADA

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.

MEDICARE- DO YOU CARE IF YOU LIVE OR DIE?

MEDICARE- DO YOU CARE OR DO THEY NOW CARE IF YOU LIVE OR DIE?

CANADA MEDICARE (2)

Quebec promises of more palliative care is that they will kill OR murder more people in hopspitals. This government will now invest at least $10 million a year over the next five years to help people die in dignity. Quebec has a right to-die legislation, The law, which was adopted in June 2014, offers people who are terminally ill and suffering from unbearable physical or psychological pain, etc.,  the possibility of requesting the  doctor’s help to die or not to live.. Not having access to proper Medical c are would force falsely some people to end their lives prematurely especially as this government is reluctant to pay for the expensive pain killers, medical treatments.

 I WAS SUPRISED WHEN 2  SEPARATE DOCTORS  IN AN EMERGENCY WARD ASKED ME IF I MINDED IF THEY DID NOT TRY TO SAVE ME?

I PREFER TO LIVE.

LAZY INCOMPTENT OVER PAID  DOCTORS ARE IN A HURRY TO KILL THEIR PATIENTS RATHER THAN SAVE THEM

I spent this year 5 days in the Montreal Notre Dame hospital and they were unable to help me, but  after being discharged I went to the local pharmacy , pharmacist who recommend a product that helped, dealt with my medical problem.. A Year later the services drasticly improved

Too many Doctors are mainly selfish, self centered, want to get rich fast

Canada does not have the best Medicare, not even close.. why?
