The Canadian taxpayer pays for the alcohol abuse

The Canadian taxpayer pays heavily for the health costs incurred from alcohol  abuse. Alcohol is a poison that is detrimental to one’s health and all persons who take bad drugs and alcohol suffer undeniably irreversible brain damage, death of brain cells, become more and more mentally  retarded Even light and moderate drinking – up to one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men – could increase the risk of cancer, say researchers. Federal   Senators charge taxpayers for art, gifts, dining out and booze

A new study suggests Canadians are thirstier than ever as sales of wine, beer  and spirits are on track to setting a record high. Increasing indulgence  has been a trend all year long with Canadians spending close to half a billion  dollars more on alcohol in the first nine months of 2012 than in 2011, and if this growth holds up through the holiday season, that would set the stage for  record retail sales of more than $19 billion in 2012. Whether it is family get-togethers,  holiday parties or just drinking to stay warm, liquor sales typically surge by  over 40 per cent of the monthly average in December, the study  suggests. By comparison, despite the hordes of people descending on malls  to purchase gifts for their loved ones, the retail sector only rises by 15-20  per cent in December.   Alcohol sales on pace to high record high: report  Canada becoming a nation of alcoholics

BC alcohol revenues provide the government with $1 billion annually. But health and enforcement costs related to alcohol were $57 million higher than revenue generated by alcohol sales.

Alcohol consumption and cost on government-owned aircraft. Between November 13 and September 7th, 231 bottles of wine and 535 cans of beer have been downed by passengers – including staff, security and members of the travelling press – while on board government-owned Airbus and Challenger aircraft, for a combined tab of $6,053.41.

.

In an  note signed by Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion sates  that the service of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for “official delegations on international flights” has been “standard practice since the 1970s.”

alcohol-5

A Liberal  alcoholic politician is now just as bad as a New Conservative alcoholic politician firstly.. and lies just as much.. It seems we have too many cheats, thieves, liars, alcoholics, adulterers for cops and for politicians still in Canada.. for basically there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, it seems you are basically honest or merely another crook…

.

alcohol-4

Kind of foolish encouraging people to become alcoholics at taxpayers expense, for while a few corporations will get richer in the process, the Canadian government will not, cause the costs due to job dismissals and related tax losses, Medicare cost increase, car accidents, policing, domestic violence, all associated with alcoholism is extremely costly.. No taxpayer’s money should ever  be used to buy alcohol  at any federal, provincial, municipal government functions nor encourage any alcoholism too. Really!

THEY SAY ANYTHING TO GET ELECTED, LIES TOO

1YES NO

Ottawa  the nation’s capital is home to a Liberal government of Promise Breakers. You’d think politicians would think twice about violating their election pledges, with this  a 24/7 news cycle, constant updates on Internet media sites and the unrelenting deluge on the interent  . But that hasn’t stopped them — either because they really have nothing but contempt for the public’s intelligence and memory, or they would not get elected if they would not lie..  Trudeau  failure to deliver is  based not just on individual promises but a leadership potential that was rooted in misplaced expectations and an  false constructed image .Many now see how real shallow, incometent he real is. His entire campaign was rooted in a dubious premise. Trudeau  had insisted throughout his campaign he was going to “save” the economy through “modest” deficits and a “middle class” tax cut combined with an increase to make the rich “pay their fair share.” it is gullible to believe that Trudeau was really going to produce deficits that hardly mattered while bringing tax relief to Canada’s vast middle class. It is  transparent that Trudeau is preparing for not modest but robust deficits and only a fraction of the real middle class will benefit from tax cuts.

.

JUSTIN TRUDEAU

Where else is Trudeau coming unglued?

.

He promised to restore Canada Post home delivery for all Canadians without thinking that one through and looks like he’s prepared to entertain the status quo.

.

The Liberal government has broken a promise to immediately implement firearm-marking regulations to help police trace guns used in crime, the pledge had not been fulfilled. The regulations would require that specific, identifiable markings be stamped on firearms and had been slated to take effect Dec. 1 of last year. n their election platform, the Liberals said they would “immediately” implement gun-marking regulations. The party also promised other, longer-term measures aimed at making it harder for criminals to get and use handguns and assault weapons. The long-planned regulations would require domestically manufactured firearms to bear the name of the manufacturer, serial number, and “Canada” or “CA.” Imported guns would have to carry the “Canada” or “CA” designation along with the last two digits of the year of import. The measures would help Canada meet the requirements of the United Nations Firearms Protocol and a convention of the Organization of American States.

.

He also had  criticized the Conservatives for rendering the Temporary Foreign Worker program ineffective but is now taking a rigid Canada first line about Canadians filling jobs they refuse to do. Like his predecessors he hashed the existing government but next did the same things

.

Trudeau has not yet pulled our CF-18s out of theatre — as he said he was going to do immediately after being sworn in as PM.

.

CANADA ARMED FORCES

 

PM Justin Trudeau had promised to end bombing runs in Canada’s Syria mission. But whether Trudeau will be able to stand by his campaign commitment to refocus Canada’s role in the war-torn region is  still  the question in the aftermath of his election now. Trudeau likes to say Canada is back, but the military is void, broked, needs  loads of money not available.
.
Once in power, however, Liberals concede  that they will not keep all of their election promises.
.

A bad Liberal is equal to a bad Conservative.

CANADA ELECTION 2015 (4)

Canadian participation in the fighting came as the new Liberal government was  once  considering when to withdraw its six CF-18s from combat and how to beef up the ground training mission of local forces Trudeau has pledged a more robust training presence in Iraq,   but he had planned  to end Canada’s  air force’s role in the U.S.-led coalition bombing campaign.

He insists Canada will still be a “substantial military contributor to the military efforts against ISIS,” but his government’s inability to define and articulate what that will look like carries now a mounting political cost for the Liberals. But Canada’s  defence minister has said that the air combat mission, including CF-18 bombing sorties, will continue well into next year, and perhaps beyond the parliamentary authorization.” Trudeau now has been  less adept at explaining why he intends to withdraw the six Canadian fighter jets from the airstrikes against ISIS targets in Iraq, in favour of increasing the number of military trainers in the region. However, it does represent the latest example of the Liberal government, which had promised to do politics differently, either breaking or backing off a promise made during the election.

.

The Liberal government has  already failed to deliver its promise to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees by the end of 2015 3,700 fewer Syrian refugees landed in Canada than promised by Trudeau. Liberals fall short of year-end goal for refugee resettlement . Canada’s Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Minister John McCallum announced Thursday that just over 6,000 refugees, most of them privately sponsored, will have arrived in Canada by the end of the day on Dec. 31. That’s far short of his party’s election pledge to bring in 25,000 government sponsored refugees before the New Year and also well shy of the revised goal of 10,000, set in early December when it became clear the first promise was not to be met,the Liberals have clearly broken an important election promise that they knew they could never meet.

The NDP also sharply criticized the Liberal government’s missed targets. “Not only did this minister irrefutably fail to live up to the promise Liberals made to Canadians in the last election but he even failed to meet his own lowered expectations,”

CANADA ELECTION 2015

The government’s failure to keep even its own scaled-back promise is obvious . But  it does represent another black mark for a government that is only a few months into its mandate.

.

And what other LiEberal  Election promises are going to be broken next?

.

Trudeau’s  immoral  pledge to legalize marijuana seems to be  be overruled by international conventions. Justin Trudeau, the Liberal prime minister  ,  ran in part on a promise to legalize marijuana, and said he was going to ” get started on that right away,” but now, Trudeau has said his efforts have hit a snag—international treaties. They were, uh, there during the election campaign, even if they were left unmentioned by the candidate himself.   Now Liberal government will have to do substantial work on the international stage before it can follow through on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s promise to legalize marijuana, new documents suggest. That work  includes figuring out how Canada would comply with three international treaties to which the country is a party, all of which criminalize the possession and production of marijuana. Trudeau’s plan to legalize, regulate and restrict access to marijuana is also proving a complicated and controversial undertaking on the domestic front, in part because it requires working with the provinces.

The treaties—the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs , the Convention on Psychotropic Substances and the United Nations Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances—date back to the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Groups fight retroactive Conservative firearms data law. A retroactive Conservative law buried in last spring’s omnibus budget bill fundamentally undermines the rule of law and government access-to-information systems across Canada, according to court submissions in a paused constitutional challenge.  Twelve of Canada’s 13 provincial and territorial information commissioners, as well as the Criminal Lawyers’ Association, are seeking intervener status in the case, which challenges the former government’s unprecedented rewrite of an old law to get the RCMP and any other government official off the hook for illegally destroying long gun registry records.  “Should this legislation withstand this challenge, it would have far-reaching implications for criminal law principles,” Provincial and territorial information commissioners say they share “profound concern” over questions of “fundamental importance,” including “immunizing public officials from liability and prosecution.” Legislation retroactively removing the right of access and oversight mechanisms in their entirety, or government action destroying the records, is a particularly egregious infringement,” of the constitutionally protected right to access government information,  “Put simply, citizens must expect that when they break the law, they are subject to investigation, proceeding and sanction even if the government subsequently repeals the law that was contravened,” says the CLA submission. “This is fundamental to the rule of law: a citizen is forbidden from breaking the law that exists at the time of their action.”

I thought  all this was a conservative platform rather..  what Liars the Liberals have become, they were not elected for these  cuts, gifts.

.

The governments lie when they say they care about the citizens, Liberals or Conservatives too, they support the establishment rather, the rich to get richer.. as that is their own goals, desires too

.

a Bad liberal is the same as a Bad conservative

.

Now why is it the Quebec government does not go after the many, many tax evaders, then it would have money for social welfare… yes the  tax evaders such as Renovators, Car Mechanics, Property managers, truck drivers,, new immigrants,  etc,

 

And Don’t despise the poor people otherwise you will become poor like Alberta has.. 

.

I REMEMBER WHEN MANY ARROGANT ALBERTANS, POLITICIANS  USED TO FALSELY BOAST ON THE NET ABOUT THEIR PROSPERITY.. and I would reply they need to be really now more considerate of the poor people and the rest of Canada for they too will ONE DAY  be on social aid, and EVEN asking other Canadians to help them.. it is funny how reality  comes to pass with time even in Alberta.

Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit;  (Jer 9:6 KJV)

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7

.

The Governments, Politicians supposedly caring  about own good welfare firstly, is the best joke of the year too, in reality rather they are working really hard everyday too looking first after themselves , and undeniably clearly living high on the hog at our expense, and that even includes too many of our bad civil and public servants too now.. WHERE ARE THE POLICE HERE TOO WHEN YOU NEED THEM??? And accountability, openness, transparency are more Stephen Harper’s conservative government lies that need to be prosecuted as well.. Under the new  federal Conservatives the civil an public servants are not being managed any better and they still too often waste, abuse our tax dollars and this is unacceptable. Mostly Pretentious and  useless RCMP,  Consumer Protection, Health Canada, and Revenue Canada need to really shape up still now too. 

.

And what about still dealing with our elected political members, civil and public servants who too often have abused the tax payers generosity now as well, they also seem still to get away with it..

.

THE POLICE, RCMP, MINISTERS, GOVERNMENT CONSULTANTS THESE DAYS, IMMIGRANT CONSULTANTS TOO  IT SEEMS , SEEM TO BE ANOTHER WORD FOR ABUSERS, THIEVES, LIARS CROOKS. SO WE ALL NEED TO DEAL WITH IT MORE EFFECTIVELY NOW TOO.

Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves very ones best interest… too often still missing in the PROFESSIONAL BODIES, EVEN IN THE RCMP, police   forces, churches, ALL GOVERNMENTS  as well it seems too.

”   Among the claims made by women in the Radio Canada report, one of the most common was that RACIAL  MONTREAL  cops would take women they considered troublemakers into their squad cars during the winter, drop them off way outside of town and force them to walk home in the cold. Advocates who’ve been calling for an inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women say the contentious relationship between law enforcement and indigenous people should also be examined. ”

.

Citizens are still calling for change in   local speed traps. I think over the years they have just tacked on additional fines, or put up red light cameras, or doing one thing or another to try and generate revenue for their city.  Cities falsely are using traffic citations to fund city government.  Some cities it’s upwards of 8% to 10% of their revenue instead of .5 percent  is generated by fines and fees.    Many cities   have used fines and fees to fund a large portion of their budget, police budgets included . Too many Police Department  even have an illegal quota system that requires  officers to write three traffic tickets per day and make at least one arrest every two days. A  quota encourages officers to ticket people regardless of whether motorists’  behaviour is actually endangering the public or could be corrected with a warning. Traffic fines affect the poor and are ineffective against those they are to be really targeting, the rich. Most   cops saw their fellow residents less as citizens to protect than as “potential offenders and sources of revenue.”  Causing  “breakdown of trust” between people, police, governments and courts.  Missouri cities can no longer treat their citizens like ATMs,  as the state’s governor signed a bill capping how much money local governments can collect from traffic tickets and fines.” For people who have lived in these communities that fear they are going to be pulled over and harassed because that city needs money, that’s going to change,”

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.

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 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

Congratulations Justin Trudeau PM

Parliament, Ottawa, Canada –

Justin Trudeau as the son of the man who led the country for almost 16 years, Trudeau has more experience in the upper echelons of Canadian political power than most rookie PMs — certainly more than Stephen Harper did when he became prime minister in 2006. Justin likely learned the value of discipline and respect for dissenting opinions under his father’s long tutelage .  When Justin Trudeau officially assumes the top post on Nov. 4, it will be 47 years after his father first became prime minister..  “All his life, he’s lived in a world where he could think of world leaders as actual people,”.  Justin Trudeau acknowledged that being on planes with his dad and his closest advisers gave him an insight into how policy was made Justin Trudeau, AND  wife, Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau, both of them ARE bilingual in English and French,

The truth about marijuana

Canadians should demand better by real drug enforcement and also demand drug addiction-prevention and treatment.

deatth

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
  • Panic
  • 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

Mental effects

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

The People who lie often, the professionals and the politicans, civil and public servants  now included, they tend to have severe personal, mental disorders next cause one tends to eventually believe next ones lies as being the truth, and they can no no longer differentiate their own lies from reality, the truth.

A Liberal  alcoholic politician is now just as bad as a New Conservative alcoholic politician firstly.. and lies just as much.. It seems we have too many cheats, thieves, liars, alcoholics, adulterers for cops and for politicians still in Canada.. for basically there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, it seems you are basically honest or merely another crook…

CANADA IN PERSPECTIVE

The causes of the refugees in Syria

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria’s information minister says Europe should bear full responsibility for the flood of Syrian refugees streaming into the continent. The minister, Omran al-Zoubi, says that the migrants are mostly fleeing from areas held by rivals of President Bashar Assad’s government, including the Islamic State group.   European countries, “which sent terrorists” to Syria and imposed economic sanctions on the Syrian people, must take responsibility for their anti-Syria policies.. European countries have been harsh critics of Assad’s government and thousands of Islamic fighters from around the world, including Europe, have come to Syria to fight in extremist groups such as the IS against the  Syrian government forces.

Syria is a relatively new country: Its borders were constructed by European powers in the 1920s, mashing together several ethnic and religious groups.   Five years ago, Syria was the most stable country in the most turbulent region in the world. It had been so for decades This regime appeared stable, but when the false Islamic  Arab Spring protests began in 2011, it turned out not to be. The Sunni extremist group known as al-Qaeda in Iraq, which had been mostly defeated in 2007, was rebuilding itself. It grew strong fighting against Assad in Syria, and later swept northern Iraq under the new name ISIS. The United States should not have gone to war years ago to intervene forcefully in the Syrian civil war as  there should not be any external interference in the internal affairs of a country like Syria . And  there’s no bad terrorism and good terrorism. There’s only terrorism. We should all join hands together to fight terrorism.  Four years of civil war has turned Syria into a humanitarian tragedy. Tens of thousands of Syrians have lost their lives and millions have been rendered refugees. The chaos created by the war has helped the rise of terrorist groups such as the Islamic State. The war is not over yet. You lose some ground in certain battles to win bigger ones. The reality is that nobody is fighting the IS but the Syrian Army.

While the desperate flight of Syrians from their country’s war was dominating news bulletins this summer, the yet another diplomatic push to end the four-year-old conflict  is at a dead end and there is no solution in sight.  President Bashar al-Assad’s of Syria  appears confident of survival with backing from his Russian and Iranian allies.

Saudi Arabia and the other Sunni Muslim Gulf states , UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Qatar. have reaffirmed their opposition to Assad, whom who has the support of Shi’ite in Iran, but have not said publicly how they intend to deal with the arrival of the Russian forces. The Gulf Arab states fund the Syrian rebels In Syria.

The election of Faisal bin Hassan Trad to chair a panel of independent experts on the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) follows a barrage of criticism aimed at the Saudi regime over its treatment of minorities and its apparent fondness for capital punishment. Mr Trad, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador at the UN in Geneva, was appointed to the role in June – shortly after the kingdom posted an advert for eight new executioners.  “Saudi Arabia has arguably the worst record in the world when it comes to religious freedom and women’s rights, and continues to imprison the innocent blogger Raif Badawi.”  Mr Badawi’s wife, Ensaf Haidar, who has been leading a campaign to free her husband, said the move gave Saudi Arabia “a green light to start flogging [him] again”. A 2015 Human Rights Watch report accused the Saudis of “systematic discrimination against women and religious minorities” and claimed “authorities subjected hundreds of people to unfair trials and arbitrary detention”.
In the first six months of 2015, Saudi Arabia beheaded more than 100 people. Decapitations, whippings and mutilations are common punishments for crimes.  A year ago the world witnessed a new phenomenon  the Arab Spring . Instead of asserting democracy and protecting the rights of the minority, major attempts were being made to depose an enemy violently  and to stage a coup, which tended only to result in the replacement of one dominant force with another, even a  more aggressive religious force, or Muslim terrorists.. The Arab Spring has graphically demonstrated their Islamic religious bias .

The main objective of Syria’s enemies from day one of the crisis was regime change and destabilisation of the country. That’s part of the reasons that  we have this humanitarian refugee situation now  The solution to the refugees is very simple. Stop arming the rebels, mercenaries, close the borders and there should be an international will to fight all terrorism. Unless and until you close the border and remove the terror infrastructure, you can’t defeat them. So you also must put pressure on those countries supporting and sponsoring terrorism, specially  the US, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. The U.S. sends food and medical supplies —  weapons — to Syrian rebels.   The USA has been systematically destroying Syria , bombing infrastructure which has left people with no water, electricity or means to provide food. This made life impossible, so they had to leave. Now Europe has to pay. Obama is disguisting and inhumane! He should be tried for crimes against humanity for his bombing campaign in Syria 

Also there’s no solution to the current Syrian crisis without the current Syrian president and the Syrian government.  France  has refused to carry out strikes in Syria on fears that foreign intervention will escalate the refugee problems.. France’s priority remains finding a credible political alternative to escaltaing the war in Syria.

For more see: The causes of the refugees in Syria

The majority of Canadians oppose the government’s plan to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees in the next six weeks, and the most common complaint is that there isn’t enough time, a new poll shows.

More than half of Canadians (54 per cent) either moderately or strongly oppose Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s plan to bring 25,000 refugees over by Jan. 1, 2016. Meanwhile, 42 per cent moderately or strongly support the plan, according to an Angus Reid Institute poll conducted three days after terrorist attacks killed 129 people in Paris.

Of those who oppose the Liberal government’s refugee plan, the majority (53 per cent) cite tight timelines as their main concern, saying they fear it’s too short to allow for appropriate security checks. Another ten per cent think 25,000 refugees is just too many, while eight per cent say the plan is too expensive. The Liberal government has not released details of their plan, including how they will get all the refugees to Canada and how much it will cost.

Almost one-third (29 per cent) of those who oppose the Liberal plan say Canada should not take in any refugees from the war-torn region. That means about 16 per cent of all poll respondents (those who support and oppose the plan) want to close the nation’s borders to Syrians.

Opposition is highest in Alberta (62 per cent) and lowest in Atlantic Canada (46 per cent).

The poll suggests that Premier Brad Wall is on the right side of public opinion in Saskatchewan.

Doctors receiving falsely kickbacks

You all can easily know that I have said before here that one the things that makes any health care system bad is the much too many  money hungry doctors..

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

RCMP officers missed an opportunity to stop gunman before he entered Parliament

The   Mounties will scrutinize spending of the Senate’s top leadership along with that of several other past and sitting senators. They include Senate Speaker Leo Housakos, recently named to the top job by Prime Minister Stephen Harper; Conservative government leader Claude Carignan; and Senate Liberal caucus leader James Cowan. All three were among 21 pegged by auditor general Michael Ferguson’s report as owing money.   So the RCMP  wants to review findings on all 30 senators flagged for questionable expenses should  also start of with it’s own personnel as well.

.

It does not take a report written a year later to confirm I was right  about the bad RCMP, Security in Canada.    

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/10/27/unprepared-a-wake-up-call/

.

  Fire the bad cops And don’t try to give us all  the crap that any  bad police officers can be next still retrained, reformed .. the police themselves tend not to believe that any of the bad guys can be reformed    “The RCMP they are gaining a reputation for being more incompetent each day. What is  meant is that they are losing credibility as a police agency.   They should be called the RCIP, Royal Canadian Incompetent Police”  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/11/27/the-pretentious-useless-cost-ineffective-rcmp/

.

RCMP officers missed an opportunity to stop gunman Michael Zehaf-Bibeau before he entered Parliament because a radioed warning of his approach came out “garbled,” RCMP Assistant-Commissioner Gilles Michaud said Jun 03, 2015 after the release of four reports into the Oct. 22 attack.  The report on the RCMP’s deployment on Parliament Hill, conducted by the Ontario Provincial Police, also cites a lack of “operational preparedness,” including planning, training and resources.  The report stresses the approach to security and protection on the Hill is “highly inadequate” and concludes the shooting was a “grim reminder that Canada ad the RCMP itself s ill-prepared to prevent and respond to such attacks.” The reports come as the cost ineffective  RCMP is set to assume control of a new Parliamentary Protective Service and take over sole responsibility for security in and around Parliament Hill.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/rcmp-missed-chance-to-stop-oct-22-gunman-michael-zehaf-bibeau-opp-report-1.3098489

.

A garbled police radio transmission failed to immediately alert RCMP officers that an armed Michael Zehaf Bibeau was storming Parliament Hill on Oct. 22, 2014, an Ontario Provincial Police report has found.

A woman with a baby carriage first alerted a female RCMP officer on the Hill about a man with a gun, RCMP Assistant Commissioner Gilles Michaud told a news conference Wednesday.

As the terrified woman attempted to seek shelter in the back of the officer’s cruiser, the officer tried to radio others about Zehaf Bibeau, who had forced his way inside a ministerial limo and was driving towards Centre Block.

However, the officer’s radio message came out “garbled” and no one understood what she was saying, Michaud said.

Another officer saw the limo approaching, but did not realize that Zehaf Bibeau was inside.

The gunman then made his way into Centre Block, where he was shot within seven seconds of entering the building, the OPP report says.

Zehaf Bibeau was shot 31 times, including two shots that would have been immediately fatal, according to the review.

The House of Commons and the RCMP released the redacted versions of the OPP report Wednesday. The names of all the officers and civilians involved are redacted in the OPP report.   The belief of many Parliamentarians is the RCMP officers on Parliament Hill are unhappy with their assignment and are only posted there temporarily.

They lied, Mislead about the internet speeds one gets at home

bell A 2013 study by the Ottawa-based Public Interest Advocacy Centre found that most Canadians think they can expect to receive the maximum speed advertised for the internet package they subscribe to.

.

However, the study also found that internet service providers didn’t know what speeds customers actually get and there is much  evidence that the maximum speeds customers get are much  lower than advertised. So who does anything good about this in reality and how often?   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2015/01/26/useless-crtc/ 

.

I heard firsthand one teenager saying to another teenager yesterday, “I cannot trust you, you lie to me all the time” and this next had made me reflect upon the reality that the average person lies 3 times in every ten minutes of conversation . It seems that spin doctoring, misleading, lying to others is a very major part of not just the lawyers, used car salesmen, but a regular part of the sales, advertising, corporate way of doing business with consumers these days Canada wide now as well.  http://blog.blazingangles.net/whatsthis/2007/09/the-art-of-lying-1.html

.

Imagine that Bell has been in Business for many years and is still guilty now clearly of misleading advertisements, fraudulent and unacceptable business practices, not living up to their contractual obligations, as I now have PERSONALLY WITNESSED, EXPERIENCED  and undeniably detailed to even Bell and many others many times too now . I Paid for a high speed unlimited download service but that is not what I got next. I got low internet speed at a high price. With Bell you have to check your actual delivered speeds , “internet download and upload speed test” cause Bell seems to change it to suit themselves..    Dealing with Bell is absurdity filled with problems. In spite of their adds, promises Bell  services are all mostly very poor, they also mostly break their promises to me too and they too Cleary do not honor their contract obligations, their own 2 days respond promises now too. As I have detailed many times elsewhere they Bell have never given me my one year reliable, steady, continuous high speed internet services too, have never kept their contract obligations . Bell’s bad acts are Not acceptable. I too at least am known for telling the truth and that is worth much too… Bell is a known liar and that is not worth much..

The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), which manages the .ca domain, already has an internet speed-testing project underway to gauge internet performance across the country. Canadians can run the test anonymously by visiting a website the organization has set up.  http://cira.ca/performance .

.

My download 7.6 Mbps  was  not the   10.6 Mbps promised speed .

.

The Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) is looking for volunteers to participate in a project to measure the performance of home broadband internet services offered by 10 internet service providers partnering in the project. It says the results will tell Canadians their “actual connection speeds” and whether the services are “delivering speeds as advertised.” The data could also help the CRTC improve its broadband policy-making, it said in a news release. The measurements will be conducted by SamKnows, a company that specializes in testing broadband speeds. Up to 6,200 participants will receive a device called a Whitebox that they can connect to their modem or router. The device periodically measure the speed of their internet connection while it isn’t actively in use.   http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/home-accueil.htm http://news.gc.ca/web/article-en.do?nid=977489 .
