It is always the same old complaint about the Montreal Police

SPVM, Montreal’s police force

For the last 2 decades, every time I called the Police in Montreal , they first tell me they are really busy and cannot come shortly and when they do come they find false  reasons why it  is not their job, they pass the buck, and say that is the courts jurisdiction, that is  your Bank Manager'”s. Rental Board concern, your property manager’s  problem, etc, including even my complaints  my identity theft, phone harassments, etc,

The RCMP, Montreal police and Sûreté du Québec have allegedly become reluctant to investigate stolen vehicles found by Canada Border Services Agency officers at the port of Montreal, effectively allowing them to be exported overseas by crimes group., as the   police have argued  that costly, time-consuming investigations   and they had more pressing priorities. The Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal said the RCMP was responsible for investigating federal crimes at the port.

 

Maybe It’s Time to Hold Montreal Police more Accountable personally

 

In Quebec, the Police are too political—and that’s a big problem as well

 

Racial profiling is a systemic problem for the Montreal Police

 

Montreal Police  infiltrated protests

 

Montreal police accused of fabricating evidence to silence whistleblowers

 

Quebec  Public security minister calls inquiry into ‘systemic’ problems in Montreal police service

 

We had a damning report on the Montreal Police

Quebec’s Public Security Minister Martin Coiteux has suspended Montreal’s chief of police Philippe Pichet in the wake of a damning report outlining serious irregularities and shortcomings in the Montreal police force’s internal affairs division.   http://montrealgazette.com/news/local-news/montreal-police-chief-to-be-removed-because-of-systemic-problems-report

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/

Federal telecom regulator to investigate Canada’s largest telecommunications companies

The Coalition that includes Bell, CBC, Rogers, Quebecor Inc   they first should get their own houses in order, stop the lies, false misleading advertising.

bell-service6

No one should think that the bad press that Bell gets will encourage them to change their behavior. . The way they do business based and the consumer complaints   is unlikely to change the way this company behaves.  The Canadian government should do something about this as it is unacceptable that Bell is allowed to get away with bad, poor, immoral behavior like this.

The Government of Canada has ordered the federal telecom regulator to investigate Canada’s largest telecommunications companies for high-pressure sales tactics, demanding a public inquiry into the issue after a series of media reports revealed questionable practices.

Innovation, Science and Economic Development Minister Navdeep Bains announced Thursday that it directed the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission to investigate and report on sales practices in light of serious concerns over misleading or aggressive sales tactics.

Shocking Canadian facts

I have to say I was surprised, dismayed to be informed that school employees have presented a serious risk to children in their care and even  the number of school employees sexually offending against children.  The School employees were not alone in this, it included both male and female educational assistants, student teachers, lunch monitors, volunteers, secretaries, custodians and school bus drivers, the report says.

.

K-12 school personnel suspected or found guilty exclusively of child pornography offences included 77 males (99%) and one female (1%). The mean age of these individuals was 47.57 years — noticeably higher than those suspected of contact offences. Their primary occupations include certified teachers (73%), principal/vice-principals (8%), custodians (6%), and educational assistants (4%)
Collectively, the search of disciplinary decisions, media sources, and criminal case law yielded a total of 750 cases of sexual offences against a minimum of 1,272 children, carried out (or allegedly carried out) between 1997 and 2017 by 714 employees working in (or formerly employed by) Canadian K-12 schools
.

Among the study’s findings:

  • 87 per cent of the offenders were male
  • 75 per cent of the child/student victims were female
  • 55 per cent of the victims were sexually abused on school property (including field trip locations and school buses)
  • 29 per cent of the victims were abused in the offender’s car or residence
  • More than two-thirds of all victims were high school students
.
See the Prevalence of Sexual Abuse by K-12  School Personnel in Canada, 1997-2017,” published in the  Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, accessible at https://doi.org/10.1080/10538712.2018.1477218.
.
The frequency of such cases is certainly occurring more than one would expect. While one such case is too many, the fact this study identified 750 Canadian cases involving 714 school personnel from the last 20 years alone is  unquestionably alarming.”
.
Many offenders in this study engaged in grooming, a method that involves building trust with a child and the adults around a child in an effort to gain access to and time alone with the child. Some offenders in this study did not appear to employ grooming but instead displayed opportunism. Finally, there was a group of offenders in this study whose offences consisted solely of those committed online against children with whom they had not had in-person contact. This pattern was offending was characterized as online luring.All of this clearly demonstrates the need for enhanced efforts to protect children in schools. elsewhere too.
.
 Child sexual abuse includes a range of behaviours, from obvious contact offences,  to less obvious non-contact offences which include exposing a child to sexually explicit material, voyeurism, luring a child online for a sexual purpose, and inviting a child to sexually touch themselves or someone else. Children can experience trauma from both contact and non-contact sexual offences.
.
Furthermore, a study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal showed that 10% of the population (corresponding to some 3.6 million Canadians) reported having experienced sexual abuse before they were 16 years old.
.

The Criminal Code of Canada prohibits the offences  of sexual interference (touching of a child under 16 for a sexual purpose whether directly or indirectly, such as with an object) and invitation to sexual touching (encouraging a child under 16 to touch themselves or someone else for a sexual purpose, whether in person or online). The offence of sexual exploitation applies to children aged 16 and 17.And new offences have been added to the Criminal Code to address online risks to children, including the offence of online luring (which prohibits electronic communications with children that are designed to facilitate a sexual offence against the child), and the offence of agreement or arrangement (when two or more individuals use technology to agree to or arrange for the sexual abuse of a child). The Criminal Code also criminalizes the creation, distribution, possession and access of child pornography.

.

Those who pleaded guilty and those who were found guilty following a trial, a criminal conviction was entered for 78% of teachers charged with a criminal offence.
.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR POLICIES AND PRACTICES TO PROTECT CHILDREN FOR SCHOOL BOARDS
-Policies and practices that formally recognize commitment to safe communities.

-Policies and practices for bringing forward and responding to inappropriate behaviour and boundary violations.

-Policies and practices for managing situations when school personnel are criminally charged with sexual abuse, but not convicted.
-Policies and practices for managing situations when school personnel are not criminally charged, but there is still reason to be concerned about the individual’s actions.
-Standards outlining the expectations of school personnel demonstrating appropriate boundaries in their interactions with students.
– Appoint a team of at least two individuals for school districts who handle all incidents and concerns regarding teacher misconduct in an effort to centralize the information reported. This is where all rumours, allegations, or complaints are reported. Having all information centralized allows patterns of inappropriate behaviour to be identified and managed early.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR EDUCATION AND AWARENESS FOR SCHOOL PERSONNEL

– Educate staff regularly about the policies, practices, and guidelines to protect children during staff meetings or in-service trainings.

– Make sexual abuse prevention training mandatory for educators and school personnel. Training should outline the behaviours that are considered inappropriate so that everyone is working from the same set of expectations
– Educate new staff about the policies, practices, and guidelines to protect children as part of their orientation.

-Require new staff to take boundary/child sexual abuse training as condition of employment (with statement of professional standing, criminal record, vulnerable sector, and child abuse registry checks). ;

-Remind staff about policies, practices, and guidelines during annual evaluations, in newsletters, or communications on related issues.

– Include copies of the policies, practices, and guidelines in teacher handbooks.
-Have teachers take an oath as part of teacher certification — an agreed upon credo in which they pledge to their duty of care of children

Who is next?


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
.

The rate of women who died from causes linked directly to alcohol has increased by 26 per cent since 2001, compared with a roughly five per cent increase over the same period for men, according to Canadian Institute for Health Information. And more Canadian women are drinking to the point where they end up in hospital, or even die from it. These numbers only include conditions like chronic alcohol use disorder, withdrawal delirium, cirrhosis, acute pancreatitis and extreme intoxication – not conditions that alcohol is a risk factor for. And although they consume less, alcohol affects women negatively more. Each dose of alcohol is more damaging in terms of things like liver damage as well as simple intoxication.  More than 25,000 woman had alcohol-related hospitalizations in 2016-2017, nearly a three per cent increase from prior last year. The figures also show that in 2015 there were more than 3,000 deaths caused by alcohol in Canada, compared to 2,066 deaths caused by motor-vehicle accidents. Girls aged 10 to 19 have already closed the gap with boys. Women are drinking more heavily than in the past sadly.

.

Drinking alcohol has become a “normalized” part of life for the majority of Canadians, yet many don’t realize the potential health risks of downing wine, beer or spirits .  Mental health and addiction-related conditions were responsible for nearly 75 percent of those alcohol-related Canadian hospital stays. If all drinkers limited themselves to a single drink a day, we probably wouldn’t need as many cardiologists, liver specialists, mental health, medical professionals, and substance abuse counselors. Heavy drinking will take a toll on the body.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2018/02/14/the-truth-still-even-about-alcohol/

.

Alcohol consumption can lead to liver cirrhosis, dependence, withdrawal, acute pancreatitis, as well as chronic diseases like cancer  and Canada is a heavy-drinking country. Alcohol is the second-biggest risk factor for cancer. “It is one of the top-five risk factors for premature mortality, for life expectancy, for burden of disease and hospitalizations” Making alcohol less-advertised, less affordable and less available would help to cut down on the burden of disease,  but so far, “our political system doesn’t want to do that.” Neither the Liberals. NDP, or the Conservatives who love to tax it. Here is the government hypocrisy, it is the governments who control the sale of liquor, sell it directly to citizens, and they are full aware of the hazards of consuming alcohols, Yet the same governments are building more and more liquor stores, carrying out major marketing programs, adds to encourage buying booze.  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.  No taxpayers money should ever  be used to buy alcoholics at any federal, provincial, municipal government functions. Really!   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/drink-alcohol-and-die/

.

We all also tend to know how too many cops and others do often despise others, mock the skid row persons, native alcoholic, drunks and yet hypocritically they do the same thing, even their peers.. consuming a vast amount of alcohol and they cannot see what negative effect it has on their personal life. You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors, from police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers  who say that bad people, bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. The hypocritical police tend not to believe that bad cons can be helped only bad cops… and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. Being a cop is part of a “professional or police culture” dominated by machismo and camaraderie where police officers spend a lot of time socializing with each other,   and often it involves alcohol.  “Drinking among police officers is often quite extensive and excessive, probably more so than in other professions,”

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/11/11/no-rcmp-alcoholics-it-seems/

.

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

The devil spreads many, many lies,  myths about beer, wine, drugs, being good and hangover cures.  Alcohol, or ethanol, is a sedative, hypnotic drug, and the intoxicating ingredient present in wine, beer, and spirits.  Depression is more common among substance abusers:   Although it is classified as a sedative, hypnotic drug, it has a stimulant effect in small amounts. Alcohol is known to be harmful to developing brains (from fetus to adolescence). Intoxication impairs judgment and can result in inappropriate and illegal behaviors such as sexual promiscuity, disorderly conduct, driving while intoxicated and acts of violence. Roughly 1 in 10 deaths among working-age adults results from excessive drinking. The most serious side effect of alcohol consumption is respiratory and central nervous system depression. When the amount of alcohol in the blood exceeds a certain level, or if other depressant-type medications are taken in combination, the respiratory system significantly slows down, resulting in a lack of oxygen to the brain. This can quickly progress to a comatose state and eventual death. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/04/01/alcohol-consumptiom-is-still-one-of-canadas-biggest-problem/

.

ALCOHOL IS  A  VICE AND NOT A NECESSITY.  These days you also so got to supervise daily even the politicians, even the civil and public servants  now as well, for it seems they will all run back quickly to their old tricks.. to their even bad habits of drunkenness, cheating, lying and stealing, and wrongfully next also they think they can get away with it. Clearly we as citizens have wrongfully elected too many thieves, liars, drunks, alcoholics into political offices… and they all now should still be fired, removed, recalled ASAP. Some persons rightfully maintain that prison,  job termination are still the main and best solution to this problem of alcoholics, drug abuses too. The real, root problem often is not the alcohol, or the drugs themselves, alone but rather one honestly dealing with themselves and their own real shortcomings  still too.The basic secret of all successful substance abuse termination programs are accepting personal responsibility, personal accountability,  the individual first personally has to admit he or a she  has done wrong, also admits he or she now does needs help,  admit that they is willing to take the help.. all three aspects are required still too. An appropriate real self examination on their own part is always needed firstly here  for it is also their  own real bad personal acts,  and related guilt that next contributes, contributed to his or  her own poor self image, fears, additional  problems..  especially more when things did not go the way he or she had planned beforehand .

No man should adduce in favour of drinking wine unless he can prove that the wine Jesus made in the” water-pots” of Cana was just like the wine which he proposes to drink. There are ample Greek literary texts which negate the narrow definition of oinos as denoting only fermented wine as it did not have the taste or the intoxicating effect of ordinary wine, God did not make fermented juice.. New wine would be grape juice (or a grapeade) mode from grape syrup while old wine would be 2 to 3 years old Suffice it to say, the “better” wine of course does not in any way imply or demand a more alcoholic, or even an alcoholic, wine at all, there is not the slightest evidence that the word so used would have conveyed any idea but that of the pure juice of the grape,

John the Baptist did not drink wine or any other form of alcohol because Scripture prophesied that he wouldn’t (Luke 1:15). Most people don’t know where to draw the line between temperance and excess. Such people better abstain totally until they know they can “be temperate in all things.”

John 210 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

And the word used twice  for “good” wine is a Greek word which refers to something or someone morally excellent or intrinsically good, rather It was Christ who in the Old Testament gave the warning to Israel, that “Wine is a mocker,” so why would he make fermented grape juice? by creating alcoholic wine, Jesus would have been promoting drunkenness, which the Bible clearly identifies as sinful.

Next you will say Jesus would have also distributed Playboy magazines.

If Jesus made fermented wine, then the fact that the guests had become”well drunk” would have meant that Jesus endorsed excessive drinking. Therefore,either Jesus endorsed excessive drinking of alcohol or the wine was unfermented grape juice! Obviously, then, the wine that Jesus made was unfermented grape juice.

Too many have assumed that the Hebrew and Greek words translated as “wine” must have the same meaning that themodern usage meaning of the English word “wine” does. In the English language, the word “wine” originally was used to denote the juice of grapes, whether in a fermented or unfermented state. Long ago, of course, that word has taken on the usage meaning of only grape juice in its fermented state. That’s why today we distinguish the two drinks by using the terms “wine” and “grape juice.”

Exodus 12:15 and 13:7 forbid the very presenceof “leaven” anywhere in the homes during Passover. The New Testament–in Matthew 16:12 and I Corinthians 5:7-8–provide the explanation by declaring that leaven is a symbol of evil. Leaven is a yeast, so the leavening process is parallel to the process of fermentation. In the light of these facts,plus Jesus’ statement in the disputed passages that the “fruit of the vine”represented His own saving blood, we must surely conclude that the communion cup did, and should always, contain unfermented (ie., uncorrupted) grape juice. The following Old Testament texts show God’s disapproval of wine, as “yayin:” Genesis 9:21; 19:32; Leviticus10:9-11; Deuteronomy 32:33; Psalm 60:3; Proverbs 4:17; 20:1; 23:20, 29-35;31:4-5; Isaiah 5:11-12; 28:7; Ezekiel 44:21; and Hosea 7:5. Proverbs 23:31-35–Again, the very nature of fermented wine is categorically condemned as a “serpent” and an “adder” that bites and stings.

The Bible condemns the use itself of all alcoholic beverages and highly recommends unfermented grape juice!  The only exception to this consistent rule in Scripture is Proverbs 31: 6-7, which commands that alcoholic beverages be given to those who are dying or cowards.

The assumption made by proponents of the moderate use of alcoholic beverages that the ancient peoples did not know how to preserve the juice of the grape in an unfermented state, and that therefore, virtually every instance of wine mentioned in the Bible must be to fermented wine.This assumption is totally false as the ancient historical records are abundantly clear that there were several major methods of preserving grape juice in its natural, unfermented state.

Scriptures clearly teach that the very nature of alcoholic beverages is that which brings spiritual apostasy and otherwise affects the mind (and body too) of whomever drinks it. In other words, it is not excessive drinking only that the Bible condemns,but the beverage itself and its consumption in any amount. Since most people and Christians do not know or study the Bible today they are easily deceived.

As it is abundantly clear that the Bible condemns the use of alcohol in any amounts, Persons that are simply rationalizing what they want to do regardless of the facts or the consequences to their spiritual, or physical, natures are led to do so by the demons.

Canada’s PM, Justin Trudeau’s immoral rush, actions

 

“Liberal Totalitarianism” is clearly an immoral, undemocratic approach, that tries to enslave all Canadians. Instead of confronting, or better still, reporting that reality honestly, balanced  the immoral  liberals have  turned to try to manipulating  facts .

.

Firstly Canada is not ready for the legalization of cannabis because so many issues have not been properly discussed with the public. In addition to mental health concerns,  there are concerns about drug-impaired driving and the ability of police to test people for drugs.   The speed at which the Liberal government intends to move ahead in Legalizing recreational marijuana  causes great risks in preventing adverse impacts in our communities.     https://portageonline.com/local/concern-about-the-consequences-of-cannabis-use

.

The mainstream Liberals have presented the public a pack of lies about what’s now really happening .  Much of our governmental institutions and   our legal system have been abused.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2018/02/12/gutless-politicians/

Our Ostrich Liberal state assembly that claims falsely that  the Bible promotes hate speech against gays, lesbians and transgender people.  Telling the truth is not hate.. Next  the Liberals who falsely openly encourage marriage divorce, will also try to ban any form of speech or written material that promotes traditional, honest, right  Christian views on marriage and sexuality.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/01/02/divorce-and-remarriage-in-the-christian-church/

.

The    Liberal   insanity towards Christian values also  continues to broaden. Christian or not their  move is wrong to attack any religious freedom and should not be tolerated.   This  false state  takes a position LGBT conditions are in the normal spectrum of human sexuality and that any opposition to this position is illegal –punishable.  These bad people running this state are a bunch of immoral and unprincipled folks.   In the eyes if God homosexuality also is an abomination regardless if you ban Bibles, Churches, religions  or not it does not change how God still  sees homosexuality for there is no forgiveness for those people,  even a church can not change Gods words . The Liberals  don’t even realize what is happening to them. They are so corrupted, they can’t even see what is right in front of their eyes. 

.

Liberal LGBT  Make Up Less Than 2% of the North American Population and  their grand attempts doesn’t end with their hate of Christian’s values. The so-called homosexual marriages” are a threat to all families . All homosexual “marriage” is unnatural and contrary to the conscience of every decent human being. All  homosexual behavior comes out of “an emphasis on freedom” with complete disregard for moral  values, responsibility.  

 True Christians graciously express what Bible believing Christians have believed about marriage and sexuality for 2000 years. God created humans to engage in sex only within the arrangement of marriage between a male and a female. (Genesis 1:27, 28;Leviticus 18:22; Proverbs 5:18, 19) The Bible condemns sexual activity that is not between a husband and wife, whether it is homosexual or heterosexual conduct. (1 Corinthians 6:18) The Bible straight-up says that homosexual behavior is an abomination. The New Testament plainly lists homosexuality right alongside lying (1 Timothy 1:10), robbing, being greedy, swindling (1 Corinthians 6:9), gossiping and committing murder (Romans 1:25). Any society that condones destructive, sinful behavior (as Scripture defines sin) is a society that will weaken and decline. When you engage in sexual activity outside of male-female marriage, it not only brings God’s judgment upon you but also brings about emotional harm (and sometimes physical harm or disease), regardless of whether it’s consensual, and regardless of whether the harm or the offense toward God is ever realized or acknowledged.  It is not sinful to be tempted. It’s sinful to yield. This truth about temptation applies to everyone, regardless of the sin.
.

The New Testament passages clearly upholds the sexual ethics of the Old Testament. Jesus  did condemn all forms of sexual immorality: What comes out of you is what defiles you. For from within, out of your hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile you. (  Mark 7:20-23)  Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. ( 1st Corinthians 6:9-11)  They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator– who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. ( Romans 1:25-27)

.

Any sexual intercourse between persons of the same sex that is prohibited by Bible teachings.  I do not expect lustful, sinful, gay persons to respect what the Bible says nevertheless is is God word, the whole Bible. I expect them to twist the Bible to support their immorality knowing that people “love darkness rather than light” (John 3:19). Some persons even some professing Christians are trying to argue these days from the Bible that homosexuality is an acceptable form of human relationship. They teach that same-sex “marriage” is just as holy and commendable as heterosexual marriage. This concerns many more than secular arguments because such an approach attempts to hijack the Bible and change the truth (which, by any sane definition, never changes) . The bad news for those who engage in homosexuality does not go away simply by the spurious claim that somehow the Church has “misunderstood” the bible texts for centuries. People who use the Bible to argue that accepting homosexuality is how we are to ‘love our neighbor’ wrongly omit the first half of what Jesus said in that context. Jesus actually said, “The great and first commandment is ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind’” (Matthew 22:34-40). In other words, love for one’s neighbor is bounded by one’s primary allegiance to God. How can one claim to love God, yet despise what His Word says about homosexuality and disregard His design for marriage? At the core of the topic of human sexuality, as with all topics, is either a sound understanding of God or a flawed understanding of God, the Bible.  The Bible actually is quite clear and consistent, despite those who misinterpret it (2 Peter 3:16).

.

Jesus was unequivocal in saying that to understand marriage and the sexual union, we must go back to the beginning and see how God created humanity and to what end. (See Matthew 19 and Mark 10.) Sexual intimacy is not a right. Every Christian has limitations placed on his sexuality. For married Christians, it is exclusive to one’s spouse. For single, engaged, and divorced Christians, it is abstinence, no exceptions.

.

Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate. (Matthew 19:6) Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery. (Mark 10:11-12) If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her. And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him. (1 Corinthians 7:12-13) The Bible tells husbands to love their wives (Ephesians 5:25) and wives to love their husbands (Titus 2:4). But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. (Matthew 5:44-45)

Canada’s  liberal government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, has closed its Office of Religious Freedom.

.

Canada’s Trudeau Accused of Running a ‘Totalitarian’ State and Pushing Christians Out of Work. Trudeau is unfairly targeting people of faith by endorsing practices that discriminate against those with strong religious beliefs. Though Trudeau has preached inclusiveness,  his generosity falls short of accepting Christians and their moral beliefs and he is more supportive of Muslims, Gays. Trudeau  Cuts Off Christian support for a Bible Camp, but Boosts Muslims. Last April, an Alberta Christian summer Bible camp lost out on Canada Summer Jobs funding because it refused to sign a required “values test” in support of abortion. Now  more than $20,000 in taxpayer funds were given to a Muslim group—the Islamic Humanitarian Service group—in 2017, and additional funds from the Canadian Summer jobs program were granted to the organization this year.  The Austrian government shut down seven mosques and expelled 60 Imams recently because they were being funded illegally by the Turkish government, and because photos from inside the mosques surfaced on the internet showing Turkish children being trained to be martyrs.

.

What do I really think of Islam

To say that Christians and Christianity are under a withering Liberal and brutal attack in Canada would be an understatement.  Christians and Christianity are mocked, belittled, smeared and attacked by many Liberals on a daily basis. ” Liberalism and Christianity are incompatible with each other. Liberalism advocates bondage and hate, Christianity advocates freedom and love”. “For now, the Liberal agenda allows people to be Christian in name only.”  The Liberal leaders are using,inspiring  the “Christian sheep” who follow what authorities tell them to slaughter millions of their fellow Christians who do not agree with the Liberals.

.

Jesus Christ is still the way, the truth, and the life. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved. Not Buddha, not Kali or Shiva, not Muhammad, not Baal or Lucifer. “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2

 The mainstream Liberals have presented the public a pack of lies about what’s really happening in Syria, in Russia, Ukraine –  even portraying America as the heroic nation that will save the poor citizens of Syria from a brutal dictator. Mere statements, Opinions are not true, verifiable facts. Syrian regime ‘highly likely’ to blame for chemical attack, UK and others says is not any valid proof.

There is no law and order still in Ukraine nor freedom of the press. BBC reporter Andy Verity was kicked in the groin in Ukraine when reporter Andy Verity tried to question the Mayor of Odessa, suspected of involvement. A BBC investigation has revealed how an organised Ukrainian crime gang secretly invested millions of pounds in the UK. Panorama discovered that the Ukrainian gangsters, government officials bought luxury properties in central London. The gangsters, and in some cases family members, bought luxurious property in prime London locations, including a £12.5m flat. The gang were from the Black Sea port of Odessa and made money in the oil industry. Gennadiy Trukhanov, a man who trained members of the gang in “hand-to-hand combat and sniper shooting with high precision weapons”, according to Ms Savino. He is now the mayor of Odessa   http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-43823962

 

The western Liberals in fact  have been trying to overthrow the Syrian government for decades for their own nefarious purposes. The US had “a high level of confidence” about the regime’s alleged culpability for the use of poisonous gas in Douma. but still no facts to substantiate it. It seems the warmongers didn’t even bother to wait for a report by the UN chemical weapons inspectors from Douma. They deliberately overlooked the significance of many reports from others, the site of the supposed chemical weapons attack .  The gas attack was in rebel-held territory and no independent reporters witnessed it because the area is just too dangerous. All the drama about gaz attacks, Russian hacking, interference, and collusion are a smokescreen, masking the real reason why the Western Liberals as well hate President Vladimir Putin. The real conflict is about a geopolitical power struggle for world domination, which involves hundreds of trillions of dollars . The West  is accused of inciting war, supporting terrorism and telling lies.  Russia and Syria have been in the dock and apparently found guilty, but as ever the burden of proof lies with those making the accusations to show the certain evidence they have to back up their claims. However those who have made the accusations have not shown anything like the evidence needed to substantiate their claims.  There is no basis to the Trump Administration’s accusations that the government of Bashar al Assad was involved in deliberately triggering a chemical weapons attack with a view to killing Syrian civilians.  Seymour Hersh, a journalist who has won the Pulitzer Prize, President Donald Trump ordered the bombing of Syria in April, despite having no evidence that the Bashar al-Assad government had used chemical weapons in the Syrian Civil War.   Assad did not order Syria chemical weapons attack, says German press  Bild am Sonntag. President Bashar al-Assad did not personally order last month’s chemical weapons attack near Damascus that has triggered calls for US military intervention, and blocked numerous requests from his military commanders to use chemical weapons against regime opponents in recent months, a German newspaper has reported .   Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Germany would not participate in an attack on Syria over the suspected use of chemical weapons by President Bashar al-Assad’s government.

.

Note the striking statement by Secretary of Defense James Mattis that the U.S. has “no evidence” that the Syrian government used the banned nerve agent Sarin against its own people. If America did, for example as it alleges in an official White House report, have evidence it calls “our information” regarding the Shayrat airbase “Sarin attack” being prepared, then why did it not show this? The attacks of March 19, August 24 and August 25, 2013 upon Syrian government soldiers indicate that the rebels were in possession of sarin both before and immediately after the chemical weapon attack at Ghouta of August 21, 2013. 

.

The Assad government had no motive to use chemical weapons, especially with the UN inspectors already on the ground in Syria, and as the Syrian government was in a strong position militarily in its struggle with the opposition.   Again why would Assad use chemical weapons on civilians, knowing that it would draw world-wide condemnation and intervention, when the jihadists are surrounded and on the brink of annihilation?  All these false accusations of wrongs in Syria  looks like a last gasp attempt by the desperate West  to stop the run of gains Assad’s  forces have made in the last year.

.

The undeniable Liberal lies about Syria and many other things are being now fully exposed.

.

Regardless of whether Muslims are victims or perpetrators of reprehensible acts, PM Justin Trudeau,  liberal lawmakers, do sleep with the enemy,  falsely rush to smooth things over with the Canadian Muslim community.  THE LIBERAL PARTY  TRYING TO INSURE VOTES AT ANY COSTS IS IMMORAL   

The ideological threat that Islam poses to human dignity and freedom is undeniable. By dehumanizing non-Muslims, Islam diminishes the value of human life. Islam is more than a private religion, and two facts point to Islam not being compatible with democracy. First, there is no country where Islam is dominant that can be considered a democracy with freedom of speech and equal justice under law.  Islam is also a political ideology, a justice system (sharia) and a specific culture that has rules for virtually everything in a person’s life: how to dress; who your friends should be; which foot  should go first when you enter the bathroom. Granted, not all Muslims follow all these rules, but that does not change the fact that Islam aspires to control every aspect of human life — the very definition of a totalitarian ideology. 

.

Justin Trudeau  many had asked  you  why  do you falsely prefer Muslims over Christians. It is cause you do support totalitarianism, dictatorship?  The Muslim, Islamic Imams, mosques, are simply vectors for spread of a sickness we know as Islam. It has all the classic negative associations  including distortions of reality, a collective loss of memory where every mindless revision of history goes unchallenged, delusions of grandeur, and homicidal as well as   suicidal thoughts, support of killings. As a matter of dire public health danger,  they all do have  to be better monitored as any attendee is a presumptive suspect. Islam is not, never was a religion of peace.  We have to recognize that Islam is no longer (if it ever was) ‘a religion of peace’. It is a religion which, for a variety of reasons, is unable to coexist with other groups in the modern world. We must recognize the inability of Islam to peacefully coexist with alternative belief systems and that the Muslim violence and conflict which is now commonplace is simply a continuation of a struggle which has been continuing for the past fifteen centuries. The problem is a religious belief system which cannot accept pluralism. There are no politically acceptable solutions to this problem but pretending it doesn’t exist will not help.  Islam, Islam may best be understood,” not as a religion, but “as a world-wide cult.” It is not a religion in the common acceptation of the term as a community of believers dedicated to the loving worship of the Divine, the sanctity of life, and the institution of moral principles governing repentance for sins and crimes, making life on earth a stage toward a higher reincarnation, an ineffable peace, or a confirmatory prelude to eternity in the realm of a righteous and merciful God. Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism and Hinduism and a host of lesser religions, have all learned, to a greater or lesser extent, to coexist. They have recognized that they have no alternative. This is a lesson which Islam has yet to accept.Islam is incompatible with Western civilizations. Freedom of religion does not apply to Islam, cause it is a cult, it demands blind loyalty, obedience to it’s false teachings. The dividing line between extremism and civility, authoritarianism and democracy, today is increasingly drawn along this line: For lack of any coherent ideologies, many of today’s extremists are fueled on pure demand for silent adulation and blind faith. Poll: Half of British Muslims Support Muslim Clerics Preaching Violence – 

.

“A great many Muslims around the world are for Sharia law. You know what is in Sharia laws. Cutting off the hands for thievery. Putting women to death for adultery. Putting people to death for leaving their religion. Women are not equal citizens. These are not criminal activities in Muslim society, these are their normal activities. “Under sharia, it’s OK to rape Norwegian and Swedish women because they are considered ‘infidels.’”Sharia law, a law based on Islam, is uniquely terrible to women. Her testimony is worth half of a man’s, she has little to no rights over her children, her husband is permitted to hit her if she is disobedient, and she has no unilateral right to divorce.”   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/04/24/should-we-deport-all-muslims-from-canada-2/

.

Dr. Peter Hammond describes outlines the following:

  • As long as the Muslims make up about 1%, they are generally considered a peace-loving minority who do not bother anyone.
  • At 2-3%, some start proselytizing to other minorities and disgruntled groups, especially in prison and among street gangs.
  • At 5%, Muslims have an unreasonably large influence relative to their share of the population. Many demand halal slaughtered meat, and have been pushing the food industry to produce and sell it. They have also started to work toward the government giving them autonomy under sharia law. Hammond writes that the goal of Islam is not to convert the whole world, but rather, to establish sharia law all over the world.
  • When Muslims reach 10%, historically, lawlessness increases. Some start to complain about their situation, start riots and car fires, and threaten people they feel insult Islam.
  • At 20%, violent riots erupt, jihadi militia groups are formed, people are murdered, and churches and synagogues are set ablaze.
  • When the Muslims reach 40% of the population, there are widespread massacres, constant terror attacks and militia warfare.
  • At 60%, there is the possibility of uninhibited persecution of non-Muslims, sporadic ethnic cleansing, possible genocide, implementation of sharia law and jizya (the tax for “protection” that unbelievers must pay).
  • When there are 80% Muslims in the country, they have taken control of the government apparatus and are, as in, for instance, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq, committing violence in the name of Islam or political power.
  • When 100% are Muslims, the peace in the house of Islam is supposed to come — hence the claim that Islam is the “religion of peace.”

Unwanted, unappreciated Poor Medical Care

Doctor-assisted suicide could save Canada, the Provinces, Hospitals  tens of millions of dollars annually by avoiding costly “end-of-life” care, or continually medical services apparently. It’s wrong to suggest an assisted death to someone just because they supposedly are close to a natural death.

An Ontario study found the average person generates $14,000 in health-care costs during the last 30 days of his or her life, often receiving intensive treatment is more costly than the Doctor-assisted suicide.

Canada’s new Doctor-assisted suicide laws  are unconstitutional and should be struck down because they do not require doctors “to even try to help relieve intolerable suffering” before offering to kill a terminally ill patient.  Canada’s medically assisted dying policies are “dangerous as they can be used to facilitate the humiliation and abuse of persons with disabilities in times of desperation without any steps being taken by medical staff or the defendants to help these vulnerable disabled patients relieve their suffering or assist such patients with life” Offering death without first trying to provide full adequate medical care is immoral. To suggest death is “ethically questionable,” and it should only come up on patient request. Many persons, physicians with moral and religious objections to assisted dying have already told the provincial governments they don’t want it, because they see it as someone falsely helping the  patients  to end their live.  End to the practice  of doctors referring  patients to seek  assisted death from a physician who will help to do so.

Critics have long feared that, once assisted dying was legalized, its legal borders would creep ever wider to include children and the mentally ill, and that hastening death would become the knee-jerk solution to the many intractable problems of end of life care. The federal government has no jurisdiction over health care, as it is a provincial matter solely.   Neither patients nor physicians should consider costs when making the very personal decision to a patients, well being, health care, emergency department visits, dialysis, medical tests, and hospital admissions.

THE IRONY IS MANY PATIENTS MAKE RELATED VISITS, TO THE DOCTORS, HOSPITALS, BECAUSE MANY CLEARLY CHARGE CARD HAPPY INCOMPETENT DOCTORS FAILED TO SEE AND DEAL WITH THE NEEDED MEDICAL TREATMENT. OR HAD MISDIAGNOSED THE SICKNESS ORIGINALLY.

After months, repeated visits  to the  hospitals  3  Doctors, One from McGill and two from Chum offered me  assisted death. A simple choice between medical help or medically assisted suicide, rather than simply working with me  to deal with my sicknesses  in a respectful patient-centred manner . I refused the death sentences and  I am well and healthy these days. And rather demanded they do the Job they were paid for Fully.  Ironically many other doctors and neighbours say that I look well and healthy.

Quebec’s pretentious FREE medical services

Quebec’s pretentious medical services

Vive le CHUM! was the rallying cry from those attending the official inauguration of the new French-language hospital, held in the presence of Premier Of Quebec Premier Of Quebec, Quebec Health Minister  Gaétan Barrette, former Prime Minister of Canada Brian Mulroney, Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre, hospital directors, among other dignitaries. .The Centre hospitalier de l’université de Montréal was a saga of almost 20 years in the makin,. The CHUM is the largest university hospital center in Quebec. The new CHUM is one of the largest hospital centers in North America. It brought together the teams and patients of Hôtel-Dieu, Hôpital Notre-Dame and Hôpital Saint-Luc under one roof.

Quebec can be proud of having such a vast and modern infrastructure, Couillard told a crowd gathered for the ceremony. It’s a great collective accomplishment that deserves recognition, he said. “It’s a marvellous building but above all a resource for patients and for Quebec society, and on a world-class scale,” Couillard said. “ Every year approximately 345,000 outpatients, 22,000 inpatients and 65,000 emergency patients are seen at the CHUM.

The opening of the CHUM super hospital is the last phase in the modernization of Montreal’s major hospitals, totalling more than $7 billion in direct and indirect costs . Among those projects were the expansion of the Jewish General and Ste-Justine hospitals, as well as the construction of the two megahospitals, the MUHC affiliated with McGill, and the CHUM with Université de Montréal.

The new hospital complex has three office-type towers with 25 floors, 772 private patient rooms, There’s also a critical care unit, 39 operating theatres, including dedicated ORs for robotic surgery, heart surgery, neurosurgery and transplants, pharmacy and blood bank.

It seems some people still want to get paid even if they are inadequate, incompetent for their job, the work they were hired for even for this  event at CHUM.

The Quebec government spent millions of dollars building now a new 772 bedroom CHUM St Luc hospital and yet their Emergency services are worse now than before even. The Emergency department accepts about 3 patients every hour, and has at least 30 patients wanting to get seen by a Doctor.

When after 7 hours I had complained to the emergency nurses on duty of my long wait and I still had not seen they doctor yet, they replied if I  thought their services were bad they should try the Quebec regional hospitals were they waiting time is up to 24 hours, then one nurse said she knows there is a problem but everyone else has to wait this long, and one nurse said if I did not like their services I should go to another Hospital.

The Security guard on duty told me that 350 hospital employees had quit their jobs at St Luc last month. I wondered why they had quit..

The  CHUM Cardiac services are still excellent but the CHUM Dermatology is not good at all.  I had received excellent emergency, medical care previously at the Montreal Hôtel-Dieu Hospital  The closing of Hôtel-Dieu will mark the end of an era. The hospital — established by Jeanne Mance, the first nurse to practice in what was then known as New France in the mid-1660s — had scored a number of medical firsts over the years, including the world’s first removal of a kidney in 1868.

Report it ASAP

In Canada, sexual assault is a violent criminal offence ranging from unwanted sexual touching to violent, non-consensual intercourse, commonly referred to as rape.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was accused of “groping” a young female reporter on assignment in August 2000. “Like father, like son” reads the editorial. https://t.co/7GiBEd6RIr   

“Didn’t he learn through his vast experiences in public life, that groping a strange young woman isn’t in the handbook of proper etiquette, regardless of who she is, what her business is or where they are?”

Sexual assault and harassment are persistent forms of gender-based violence that are rooted in gender inequality. It is estimated that in one year alone there were more than 600,000 sexual assaults in Canada. Sexual assault is one of the most underreported crimes If you’ve been sexually assaulted, or sexually abused call the police, write to the news editors, make it public. Canada has criminal prosecution for sexual offences, abuses.

Canada’s Criminal Code has no specific “rape” provision. Instead, it defines assault and provides for a specific punishment for “sexual assault”. In defining “assault”, the Code includes physical contact and threats. The provision reads:

265. (1) A person commits an assault when
(a) without the consent of another person, he applies force intentionally to that other person, directly or indirectly;
(b) he attempts or threatens, by an act or a gesture, to apply force to another person, if he has, or causes that other person to believe on reasonable grounds that he has, present ability to effect his purpose; or
(c) while openly wearing or carrying a weapon or an imitation thereof, he accosts or impedes another person or begs.
(2) This section applies to all forms of assault, including sexual assault, sexual assault with a weapon, threats to a third party or causing bodily harm and aggravated sexual assault.
Interestingly, the definition ‘appears’ to include threats of sexual assault as a sexual assault itself. This suggests a person could be convicted of sexual assault without physically touching the victim if they make a threat of sexual assault

The Criminal Code also allows for increased penalties for sexual assault where the accused “wounds, maims, disfigures or endangers the life of the complainant”, see:

273. (1) Every one commits an aggravated sexual assault who, in committing a sexual assault, wounds, maims, disfigures or endangers the life of the complainant.
Aggravated sexual assault
(2) Every person who commits an aggravated sexual assault is guilty of an indictable offence and liable
(a) where a firearm is used in the commission of the offence, to imprisonment for life and to a minimum punishment of imprisonment for a term of four years; and
(b) in any other case, to imprisonment for life.

You can still sue or criminally prosecute a guilty offender even if the sexual assault occurred many years ago. Hold perpetrators accountable for their actions. If we don’t, we reinforce the notion that abuse and assault are acceptable. It allows abusers to defend and continue their actions.

Over a six-year period between 2009 and 2014, police reported 117,238 sexual assaults in Canada where sexual assault was the most serious violation in the incident. Almost all (98%) police-reported sexual assaults were classified as level 1 offences (assault without a weapon or evidence of bodily harm). According to the General Social Survey on Canadians’ Safety (Victimization), there were 22 incidents of sexual assault for every 1,000 Canadians aged 15 and older in 2014. This represented approximately 636,000 self-reported incidents of sexual assault. While anyone could be a victim of sexual assault, research has shown an elevated risk for women and young individuals.

Sexual assault offenders were most often men, acting alone and under the age of 35. Just over half of victims knew the person who sexually assaulted them. The rate of sexual assault was higher among Canadian especially aboriginals, woman, who were single, never married. Research has shown that individuals with disabilities—particularly women and those with mental disabilities—are at greater risk of sexual violence, which may be partially attributed to greater vulnerability, negative social attitudes and perceptions, and abuses of trust.

no

Substance, use drug use, binge drinking are associated with higher rate of sexual assault, especially among women. Evening activities—such as going to work, night class, meetings or volunteering, or going to bars, clubs or pubs—were all associated with higher rates of sexual assault Another life experience associated with higher rates of sexual assault was homelessness

The risk of sexual assault was impacted by marital status. Individuals who were single were about four times more likely to be sexually assaulted than those who were married or common-law. Age also had an impact: individuals aged 15 to 24 were over three times more likely to be sexually assaulted than those aged 35 and older.Aboriginal identity also significantly impacted the risk of sexual assault after controlling for other factors. Individuals who identified as Aboriginal were over two times more likely to be sexually assaulted than those who were non-Aboriginal.

A medical patient can become the victim of a sexual assault by a doctor. Sexual assault by doctors includes any inappropriate touching that goes beyond the required scope of the examination. It can also include the doctor performing unnecessary examinations, or intentionally not wearing gloves during an examination. Given that doctors routinely perform pap tests, pelvic exams, and other procedures involving intimate areas, patients are particularly vulnerable to sexual assault.

Students in Canada also are at risk of being sexually assaulted by a teacher or other school employee. sexual assaults against students are being reported more frequently in Canada than ever before. This is resulting in both an increase in criminal prosecutions of teachers and students suing for sexual assault.Taking action against the teacher and school is important and helps prevent others from being sexually abused. Such actions force schools and governments to take action to protect children and stop more sexual assaults from occurring.   If a student is sexually assaulted by their teacher, or by a school employee, the school board (government) may be found vicariously liable for the student’s sexual assault lawsuit. This effectively means that the government will have to pay a future settlement or judgment to the victim

0000 top (6)

Report all Sexual attack: “Has anyone forced you or attempted to force you into any unwanted sexual activity by threatening you, holding you down or hurting you in some way?” Unwanted sexual touching: “Has anyone ever touched you against your will in any sexual way…anything from unwanted touching or grabbing, to kissing or fondling?”Sexual activity where the victim was unable to consent: “Has anyone subjected you to a sexual activity to which you were not able to consent…where you were drugged, intoxicated, manipulated or forced in ways other than physically?”

The Truth still even About Alcohol

no drugs (1)

The devil spreads many, many myths about beer, wine, drugs, hangover cures and whether or not they are good for you.

What does alcohol actually do to the human body? How does it affect behaviour and what might be done to lessen, or even prevent, its most harmful effects? Nothing real good comes from any of them, believe it or not.

.

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/

NO ALCOHOL (7)

Alcohol, or ethanol, is a sedative, hypnotic drug, and the intoxicating ingredient present in wine, beer, and spirits.   Although it is classified as a sedative, hypnotic drug, it has a stimulant effect in small amounts. Alcohol is known to be harmful to developing brains (from fetus to adolescence).Intoxication impairs judgment and can result in inappropriate and illegal behaviors such as sexual promiscuity, disorderly conduct, driving while intoxicated and acts of violence. Roughly 1 in 10 deaths among working-age adults results from excessive drinking. The most serious side effect of alcohol consumption is respiratory and central nervous system depression. When the amount of alcohol in the blood exceeds a certain level, or if other depressant-type medications are taken in combination, the respiratory system significantly slows down, resulting in a lack of oxygen to the brain. This can quickly progress to a comatose state and eventual death.

The Truth even About Alcohol comes as governments around the world strive to improve public health and safety and raise awareness about the dangers of addiction. Heavy drinking is a major cause of preventable death in most countries. And alcohol is implicated in about half of fatal traffic accidents. If all drinkers limited themselves to a single drink a day, we probably wouldn’t need as many cardiologists, liver specialists, mental health, medical professionals, and substance abuse counselors.

Heavy drinking will take a toll on the body. It can cause inflammation of the liver (alcoholic hepatitis) and lead to scarring of the liver (cirrhosis), a potentially fatal disease. Heavy drinking can increase blood pressure and damage heart muscle (cardiomyopathy). It has also been linked with several cancers: The World Cancer Research Fund and American Institute for Cancer Research indicate that there is convincing evidence linking alcohol use to cancer of the mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, breast, and colon and rectum in men, and probable evidence that its use contributes to liver cancer and colorectal cancer in women. The risk is multiplied for drinkers who also smoke tobacco. Alcohol can disrupt sleep. Its ability to cloud judgment is legendary. Alcohol interacts in potentially dangerous ways with a variety of medications, including acetaminophen, antidepressants, anticonvulsants, painkillers, and sedatives. It is also addictive, especially for people with a family history of alcoholism.

DRUNK DRIVING

Alcoholism has a price. Depression, homelessness, the break up of the family unit, losing one’s job, losing one’s career, losing one’s house, losing one’s mind, losing one’s life even.

Problem drinking also touches drinkers’ families, friends, and communities. Too many persons meet standard criteria for alcohol abuse or alcoholism. Alcohol plays a big role in one in three cases of violent crime. Many people die each year in automobile accidents in which alcohol is involved. Alcohol abuse is very costly to all.

For a 30-year-old man, the increased risk of alcohol-related accidents outweighs the possible heart-related benefits of moderate alcohol consumption. For a pregnant woman and her unborn child, a recovering alcoholic, a person with liver disease, and people taking one or more medications that interact with alcohol, moderate drinking offers little benefit and substantial risks.

If you don’t drink, do not start. You can get guaranteed positive  benefits with more exercise or healthier eating.

Negative effects of usage Marijuana include: Feelings of panic and fear (paranoia), Hallucinations, Trouble concentrating, altered senses (for example, seeing brighter colors), altered sense of time. changes in mood, impaired body movement, difficulty with thinking and problem-solving, impaired memory, blocks memory formation, decreased ability to perform tasks that require coordination. Decreased interest in completing tasks. Poorer physical health, more relationship problems, increase the risk of depression. Less academic and career success. Poor school performance and higher chance of dropping out The lost mental abilities didn’t fully return in those who quit marijuana next. Increased Antisocial behavior including stealing money or lying. Intense anxiety, fear, distrust, or panic are common side effects.
.
Marijuana also increases a person’s heart rate for up to three hours after use, putting users at risk for heart attack during that period. Secondhand marijuana smoke can do as much damage to the heart and blood vessels as secondhand tobacco smoke. The regular use of marijuana during adolescence is of particular concern, since use by this age group is associated with an increased likelihood of negative consequences such as Addiction (about 9% of adults and 17% of people who started smoking as teens) No medications are currently available to treat marijuana use disorder.
 .
The widespread abuse of drugs, narcotics , alcohol are also  linked to virtually to every evil and criminal activity within our society including adultery, murder.

No man should adduce   favour of drinking wine unless he can prove that the wine Jesus  made in the” water-pots” of Cana was just like the wine which he proposes to drink. There are ample Greek literary texts which negate the narrow definition of oinos as denoting only fermented wine as it did not have the taste or the intoxicating effect of ordinary wine, God did not make fermented juice.. New wine would be grape juice (or a grapeade) mode from grape syrup while old wine would be 2 to 3 years old Suffice it to say, the “better” wine of course does not in any way imply or demand a more alcoholic, or even an alcoholic, wine at all, there is not the slightest evidence that the word so used would have conveyed any idea but that of the pure juice of the grape,

.

John the Baptist did not drink wine or any other form of alcohol because Scripture prophesied that he wouldn’t (Luke 1:15). Most people don’t know where to draw the line between temperance and excess. Such people better abstain totally until they know they can “be temperate in all things.”

.

John 210 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

,

John 210 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

/

And the word used twice  for “good” wine is a Greek word which refers to something or someone morally excellent or intrinsically good, rather It was Christ who in the Old Testament gave the warning to Israel, that “Wine is a mocker,” so why would he make fermented grape juice? by creating alcoholic wine, Jesus would have been promoting drunkenness, which the Bible clearly identifies as sinful.

,

Next you will say Jesus would have also distributed Playboy magazines.

,

If Jesus made fermented wine, then the fact that the guests had become”well drunk” would have meant that Jesus endorsed excessive drinking. Therefore,either Jesus endorsed excessive drinking of alcohol or the wine was unfermented grape juice! Obviously, then, the wine that Jesus made was unfermented grape juice.

,

Too many have assumed that the Hebrew and Greek words translated as “wine” must have the same meaning that the modern usage meaning of the English word “wine” does. In the English language, the word “wine” originally was used to denote the juice of grapes, whether in a fermented or unfermented state. Long ago, of course, that word has taken on the usage meaning of only grape juice in its fermented state. That’s why today we distinguish the two drinks by using the terms “wine” and “grape juice.”

.

Exodus 12:15 and 13:7 forbid the very presence of “leaven” anywhere in the homes during Passover. The New Testament–in Matthew 16:12 and I Corinthians 5:7-8–provide the explanation by declaring that leaven is a symbol of evil. Leaven is a yeast, so the leavening process is parallel to the process of fermentation. In the light of these facts,plus Jesus’ statement in the disputed passages that the “fruit of the vine”represented His own saving blood, we must surely conclude that the communion cup did, and should always, contain unfermented (ie., uncorrupted) grape juice. The following Old Testament texts show God’s disapproval of wine, as “yayin:” Genesis 9:21; 19:32; Leviticus10:9-11; Deuteronomy 32:33; Psalm 60:3; Proverbs 4:17; 20:1; 23:20, 29-35;31:4-5; Isaiah 5:11-12; 28:7; Ezekiel 44:21; and Hosea 7:5. Proverbs 23:31-35–Again, the very nature of fermented wine is categorically condemned as a “serpent” and an “adder” that bites and stings.

.

The Bible condemns the use itself of all alcoholic beverages and highly recommends unfermented grape juice!  The only exception to this consistent rule in Scripture is Proverbs 31: 6-7, which commands that alcoholic beverages be given to those who are dying or cowards.

.

The assumption made by proponents of the moderate use of alcoholic beverages that the ancient peoples did not know how to preserve the juice of the grape in an unfermented state, and that therefore, virtually every instance of wine mentioned in the Bible must be to fermented wine.This assumption is totally false as the ancient historical records are abundantly clear that there were several major methods of preserving grape juice in its natural, unfermented state.

.

Scriptures clearly teach that the very nature of alcoholic beverages is that which brings spiritual apostasy and otherwise affects the mind (and body too) of whomever drinks it. In other words, it is not excessive drinking only that the Bible condemns,but the beverage itself and its consumption in any amount. Since most people and Christians do not know or study the Bible today they are easily deceived.

.

As it is abundantly clear that the Bible condemns the use of alcohol in any amounts, Persons that are simply rationalizing what they want to do regardless of the facts or the consequences to their spiritual, or physical, natures are led to do so by the demons.

NO DRUGS

“Legalization of marijuana will come at the expense of our children and public safety” The people who start using pot at a young age and continue using it often during adolescence and beyond are more likely than their peers to have poor health outcomes. They also achieve less occupational and educational success in young adulthood. Note you will reap what you sow, the good or bad still.

Full personal unhindered liberty is what is available to us, our liberty should be protected, and any bondage is to be avoided . We have a  great value of personal freedom and we must condemn anything that restricts or prohibits a person from reaching his or her full potential. Addiction, a dependence on a certain behavior or experience    kills our liberty.

Federal laws against the use, cultivation, and transportation of marijuana should be maintained and enforced and should not be relaxed or softened. Cultivation, processing, transportation and it’s  use should always be illegal . There is no medical benefit provided by the use of smoked marijuana and  in fact, considerable harm can be caused by such use.  There is a rightful fears of increased youth marijuana use, an uptick in traffic deaths, and a concern over the inability to detect marijuana intoxication in drivers.

Governments across Canada are hoping to make making money on legal recreational marijuana. Each employees in the legal recreational marijuana will pay provincial and federal income tax, contribute to employment insurance and their national pension plan. In income taxes alone, the growth from the legal marijuana industry is expected to be lucrative. They see Canada, as a global leader in well-regulated legal production, becoming a booming export producer as countries in the European Union and elsewhere recognize the harm-reduction opportunities of Canada’s legalized market? ” New Store fronts will pay municipal taxes. Rural production and storage facilities pay property taxes. Businesses pay taxes on profits. They also pay licence fees.”

“The speed at which the Liberal government intends to move ahead in Legalizing recreational marijuana  causes great risks in preventing adverse impacts in our communities. 

.

Legalizing recreational marijuana brings a multitude of public health concerns, ‘including addiction, youth drug use, increased motor vehicle crashes and higher numbers of minority arrests. Legalization of marijuana is bad public policy because the drug is addictive and significantly impairs bodily and mental functions. Consumption of marijuana impairs the immune system and short-term memory, elevates the risk of heart attack, and causes respiratory and brain damage.

There is strong evidence to suggest that legalizing marijuana would serve little purpose other than to worsen the drug problems. Marijuana use is associated with memory loss, cancer, immune system deficiencies, heart disease, and birth defects, among other conditions. Indeed, marijuana shares more in common with the “hard” drugs than it does with alcohol. The subduing effects of marijuana may initially make users feel less anxious and stressed. However, these effects are counteracted by the rebound effect of increased anxiety after the drug wears off. “Cannabis impairs key skills needed for driving.  ,”   “Impairment with drugs and alcohol increases the risk of a crash.”

no drugs (1)

Marijuana is definitely not the drug of love and peace it can even decrease energy and vigor after long-term use — it does not reduce aggression. In fact, smoking marijuana may increase anxiety and paranoia, thus increasing the possibility that an aggressive person will lash out. Marijuana does tend to reduce inhibitions and is associated with sexually promiscuous behavior in some circumstances, such as party and play.  For medicinal users, however, Health Canada has emphatically recommended against smoking the  plant due to the potential for respiratory issues. Rates of acute medical care and hospitalization for younger children who have ingested cannabis unintentionally are increasing. One  should not use cannabis recreationally because its many potentially harmful effects are serious. These effects are present in the entire population;

.

The fact that alcohol and tobacco are harmful does not in any way reduce the harms of marijuana smoking. There are many poisonous and hallucinogenic plants, which are unhealthy for human consumption. Several drugs as well as weed, heroin, cocaine, magic mushrooms and alcoholic beverages, come from plants. Consuming them is not healthy. Many chronic marijuana users do not claim to have spiritual awareness.

 A new guideline for medical marijuana, developed by Edmonton researchers, warns family doctors that the risks may outweigh the benefits for the vast majority of patients.  The guideline suggests the benefits of medical cannabis may be overstated, and research on its medicinal properties is sorely lacking. While the researchers found limited evidence supporting the use of medical cannabinoids, the side-effects were common and consistent. Common side effects included sedation, dizziness and confusion.    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/medical-cannabis-guidelines-alberta-1.4537039?cmp=rss
 .
Once recreational marijuana is legalized, it will still continue to be illegal to smoke it in public places, including parks, workplaces and motorized vehicles.   Many have the belief that pot users are criminals, and that such criminals need arresting if Canada is to be a safer place.  Marijuana is just as dangerous as – and potentially more dangerous than – cigarettes and alcohol. The biggest issues still facing marijuana legalization are: namely, testing drivers for impairment, weed in the workplace, smoking in rental properties and the availability of edible products.   Employers have expressed concern that marijuana legalization will lead to impairment, lower productivity, poor attendance and safety issues in the workplace.  An even bigger grey area is whether employers will legally be able to test, discipline or even fire workers for using a substance that is legal. It remains unclear if landlords will be able to prohibit tenants from smoking marijuana in rental properties. Landlords are also concerned about tenants growing marijuana, which could lead to increased electricity usage and the spread of damaging mould.  Marijuana is particularly concerning for the oil and gas industry. Over the last decade, drug and alcohol use has been a “pressing safety concern” and a continuing challenge for oil and gas employers.  Substance abuse top health and safety risk in sawmills. Both workers, managers worry about dangers of alcohol and drug use
.
Our   Senators themselves have raised concerns about a potential increase in drug-impaired driving after legalization, the availability of the drug to young Canadians under the new regime, and the controls that will be in place on advertising and marketing of cannabis.   Driving under the influence of cannabis increases the risk for motor vehicle accidents .  Alarmingly, road crashes in Canada that kill automobile passengers or drivers are now more likely to involve drugs (prescription and illegal) than alcohol.  Marijuana poses great harm to the cognitive development of youth under 25.   The Conservatives have been the most vocal opponents of  the legalization.    Young people between 15 and 24 generally don’t think cannabis use has any effect on driving, and that police can’t do anything about it. Studies have found that a large proportion of drivers who die in crashes have drugs in their systems. Drugs of all kinds, not including alcohol, were found in the systems of more than a third of fatally injured drivers between the ages of 16 and 24, according to a 2010 study, for example. 16.6 per cent: Proportion of fatally injured drivers who tested positive for cannabis, according to an examination of 2000-2010 Canadian data.  All jurisdictions have opted to keep their legal dope-smoking ages in line with those for drinking alcohol.

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

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.”

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.”
