ABERTA BEGS FOR SOCIAL AID

 

CALGARY POLICE  SERVICE (2)

 

Canadas oil Energy companies are digging in for another year of downturn with   for more layoffs, dividend reductions and capex cuts  by slashing spending, costs and staff reduction  as crude prices dip to new multiyear lows so Alberta’s oilpatch s also taggers under full fury of low prices and a market bloodbath    Oil tumbled to lowest level in more than 12 years. The future shows  limited  positive visibility with few positive market signals as commodities prices fall and growth stalls,  the future looks dim, so sell, sell, sell before the lights go out.Tough action by some of the sector’s leading  companies  is an indication of more pain to come 

.

New numbers are painting an idea of how many Albertans are feeling the effects of the recession. 97,000 people in Alberta were on employment insurance in November. ATB Financial said that’s a record-setting month, if you don’t count July. EI beneficiaries briefly topped 100,000 last summer   the first time in a long time that Alberta’s EI beneficiaries as a percentage of the labour force was higher than in the rest of Canada. Year-over-year, the number of Albertans collecting EI climbed nearly 60 per cent.

.

Albertans are singing the blues. They want cash from the rest of Canada. Now. This is a crisis. How could they have known this might happen? Well, for starters, they might have read some history – and I don’t mean ancient history. The history of oil-based boom and bust cycles in Alberta through the 1970s, the ’80s, the ’90s, into the new century and now the teens. As well, the history of Alberta’s “Rainy Day Fund” being abolished by the Alberta Conservative government in 1987. In 2015 this same Conservative government of Alberta was proudly advertising “Alberta’s Tax Advantage” – no provincial sales tax; no payroll tax; no health care premiums; the lowest provincial taxes on gasoline and diesel; the lowest combined federal/provincial top tax rate in the country; the highest personal tax credit amount. In short, a tax haven right here in Canada. This government boasted, “When the full impact of new tax measures is considered, Alberta’s tax advantage will be at least $8.5 billion.” So Alberta, take your $8.5 billion tax advantage and solve your problems! The rest of Canada has paid its taxes all those years you didn’t – and still aren’t.

The sudden collapse in Oil Prices and subsequent revenue to the Province can’t be magically replaced by sound budget planning. Ostriches in denial would spin like this..in reality History repeats itself.. remember the 1980’s. 2009-10 when Jobs were lost, homes went into foreclosures, property values went down due the flood of homes for sale on the market. divorce increased.. Sadly they in Alberta do not learn not the first, second or the third time. When they were rich, proud and arrogant the Conservative leaders of Alberta were too proud to heed to others, to take advice… but now that they are facing serious ,drastic economic downturn they merely pretend they are ready to listen.. and how long will that next last? Instead of saving , planning effectively for a rain days the politicians of Alberta were living high on the hog, spending the citizens money, and not really caring about the citizens own good welfare. ” The Alberta government didn’t have a plan unless you consider shovelling money out the back door as fast as it came in the front to be a plan. “Making use of the revenues” meant spending the revenues. When times were good it outspent every other province in the country on a per-capita basis. It may have been a Conservative government in name, but its spending was liberal, in every sense of the word. Many Albertans told them to save more, even the Liberals. Various groups, including one of the government’s own creations called the Financial Management Commission, were telling the government as far back as 2002 it had to save more money during the good times. Granted, Ralph Klein was in charge back then and he responded by ratcheting up spending and giving away $1.4 billion in Ralphbucks. To emphasize its pessimistic message, the government is no longer rejecting out of hand the notion of a provincial sales tax ” Alberta the two horse town, Oil and beef, needed to diversify but now is too late.. it’s electrical costs are much too high, and it’s cost of living as well, high cost labour now too… many hidden costly taxes, and add to that the many technical incompetents existing in this province and you got nothing but mostly a bunch of whiners and losers.. But now they can all put their seat belts on it is going to be a rough recession ride, about 15- 20 times worse than what Alberta had experienced in the 80’s too and alot of Albertan homes went into foreclosures. It might be hard for many Canadians, particularly in hard-hit Ontario, to feel much sympathy for this western province. After all, there was a distinct cockiness in the way “The New West” asserted its newfound position of fiscal superiority this decade over Central Canada in particular.” They had often rubbed it all proudly in our face, Alberta’s wealth, it’s importance, no taxes, a great future, and what ever before that.. Because too many Albertans were openly bashing the poor people for decades as well, now they too do have to walk in a poor man’s shoes themselves.. I REMEMBER WHEN MANY ARROGANT ALBERTANS, POLITICIANS USED TO FALSELY BOAST ON THE NET ABOUT THEIR PROSPERITY.. and I would reply they need to be really now more considerate of the poor people and the rest of Canada for they too will ONE DAY be on social aid, EVEN asking other Canadians to help them.. it is funny how reality comes to pass with time even in Alberta.

Alberta’s surprise recession is not much of a surprise to the wise… for false pride still comes before a great fall.. lay off the too many abusive cops, bad city hall employees as well in Alberta and save the money now too. You have to be rather kind, nice to everyone, even the Albertans now too, cause you do not know to whom you will go begging for help next as well.

.

Alberta is now a province of losers on social welfare now begging the East for help mainly due to the oil downturn, with massive layoffss, firms closing their doors forever, and loads of home prices dropping even foreclosures…. SO IMAGINE THE UNINMAGINEABLE. . The NDP now wins a majority government in Alberta, ending a Progressive Conservative dynasty in power for more than four decades.

Well those socialists, the NDP finally took over from the Conservative, capitalists The election results were the ultimate anti-incumbent protests, rebuke to the past endemic PC scandals and cronyism. with accountability and trust already at a sore point . OBJECTION to a government ruled by a tiny clique .

Liberals and Conservatives tend to be self centered, greedy, materialistic oriented persons. Their universe is usually small. self centered, superficial . Research has indicated that the materialism drive are due to a high neuroticism and low agreeableness. They feel incomplete. That is why they use other people to fill up the inner gap. . They are intolerant of differences. They devalue others and put them at a lesser position. It is hard for self-centered people to have a real sense of empathy. Even if they do, it is usually conditional, depending on what they are receiving from the source they are empathizing with. They expect too much for what they are willing to give. Yes when you go deep inside, their real feeling of inadequacy reveals itself. Don’t buy into their arrogance, don’t feed their excessive sense of self-importance. Don’t be their door mat. Have compassion for them since they falsely have created a wrong type of self-protection mode for them. Beyond the fact of their self-delusion is the related inability to admit to their own basic motivations . Neglect the poor and you will walk in their steps  next.

ALBERTA BROKE

The oppressive Albertan  police enforcement of revenue generating speeding tickets enforcement is still  basically economically beneficial   to a very small, isolated segment of society, the related cops, judges, lawyers, and it is false  job security approach for them even in Alberta. While the government of Alberta fails to often still to  deal with the still much too many bad managers, bad civil and public servants abusing tax payers money, even stealing,  not doing their jobs properly, unnecessarily taking out of town trips and charging it to the job still, Alberta today  is putting 15 new sheriffs on the road in Alberta. Alberta for decades, and the police  has been falsely preoccupied with putting every person in jail in Calgary, and Edmonton, all of  Alberta for speeding,  it seems and was another main reasons they spent so much money on building new court facilities in Alberta too… this is even all being done while statistics, experiences confirms that speeding does not kill, or cause the majority of accidents, but only drunk or drug impaired drivers, bad drivers, and road rage cause the majority of the accidents the government still wants to purse now mostly  the speeders more aggressively in Alberta. 

 .

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

Police often do calls for tougher rules on others but not upon themselves. Such real hypocrites now still too. .   Do what I say over do what I do is part of the hypocrisy now existing too often too at all levels, federal, provincial, municipal, in cops as well and not just in many preacher’s lives now as well..

MEDICARE- DO YOU CARE IF YOU LIVE OR DIE?

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

CANADA MEDICARE (2)

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

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

I PREFER TO LIVE.

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

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

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

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

What happened in Alberta is no surprise to the honest, decent folks. Socialists elected in Canada’s oil patch.

Alberta Today (1)

A study says shrinking budgets in the oil and gas industry could lead to as many as 185,000 direct and indirect job losses this year in Canada.  In the one horse province  Alberta would be the hardest hit .  Loonie plunges as oil’s slide continues; One-in-four oil, gas jobs could be lost in 2015 but for decades the Politicians did not plan ahead for the rainy days..  Bleak numbers showing that Canada’s economy shrank in the first three months of 2015 have already created a torrent of downgraded economic projections on how the rest of the year will unfold.

.

First it was the mad cow disease in Alberta next also  the Public Health Agency of Canada is investigating 41 cases of human illness in Western Canada that are believed to be tied to a single, undisclosed, Alberta poultry supplier. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, the patients became ill between April 5 and May 23, 2015 after purchasing live poultry from the Miller Hatcheries or Rochester Hatchery catalogues, through mail-order or from the store fronts. The two hatcheries receive their live poultry from the same supplier. Customers who placed poultry orders with the hatcheries during the suspected infection period have been contacted and supplied with salmonella information packages.  Investigations are underway in connection to 41 suspected salmonella cases including:

  • Alberta (22 cases)
  • British Columbia (14 cases)
  • Saskatchewan (4 cases)
  • Manitoba (1 case)

.

PC Premier Jim Prentice boldly predicted another Tory majority while NDP Leader Rachel Notley insisted Alberta is ready for a new premier. “It’s time to choose an Alberta where tomorrow is better than yesterday,” “We’re going to build Alberta. We’re going to represent the best interests of Albertans she said.  “Jim Prentice simply doesn’t get it,” Notley said. “By now it’s clear that Jim Prentice is not the leader Alberta needs.” .  ONCE AGAIN ALBERTA HEADS INTO A DEPRESSION https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2015/01/24/once-again-alberta-heads-into-a-depression/ .

.

IMAGINE THE UNINMAGINEABLE. . The NDP wins a majority government in Alberta, ending a Progressive Conservative dynasty in power for more than four decades.  Well those socialists, the NDP   finally took over from the Conservative, capitalists  .The NDP won 53 seats — nine more than needed for a majority in the 87-seat legislature..  With the NDP running on a platform of increasing funding for the province’s schools and hospitals in the midst of low oil prices and plunging tax revenues. The PC Leader and former premier Jim Prentice immediately announced his resignation even as an MLA.  

.

All Albertans got their  hammer and sickle and not just a broom, to the dismay, anger of the Conservatives. THE NDP made  a promise to raise the corporate tax rate to 12 per cent from 10 per cent, increase taxes on the highest-income Albertans and review the royalties that oil companies pay to the province. The Wildrose Party was poised to become the Official Opposition with about 21 seats while the Progressive Conservatives were crushed with about only 11 seats.  The election results were   the ultimate anti-incumbent protests,  rebuke  to the past endemic PC scandals and cronyism. with accountability and trust already at a  sore point .   OBJECTION to a government ruled by a tiny clique .

.

How the once mighty have fallen from such a great height.  Clearly the PC supporters were so angry at the perception that their party had lost touch with Albertans that they switched loyalties and put the NDP in their place.  Canada’s  right is in mourning that the NDP won a majority in  the latest Alberta election. The past NDP, Social Credit Party (based loosely on the ideas of C. H. Douglas) was a right-wing populist party that arose in response to the Great Depression. It held the governments of Alberta and British Columbia at various times. Preston Manning’s father, Ernest C. Manning, was the long-time Social Credit Premier of Alberta.

.

All political parties  have differences of views   in the objective of leading  society for the better and  they even differ how to implement this. The difference between conservatism(right-wing) and socialism(left-wing),  is that conservatism unrealistically  holds that all  individuals are typically  capable, healthy  people who should solely  work out their own problems for themselves. Socialism, imo, holds that not all  individuals tend  to be able to stand on their own, but rather many do need a strong government to  help them.  While normal levels of self-worth, self-confidence and self-value are all essential for all people who want to be fully functioning, there is a line between these characteristics and being arrogant.  Most of the time, arrogance can indicate an excessive need for self-importance and wanting to be the center of attention. In its extreme form, it can turn into narcissism. It could be the root of many problems, from anxiety to depression to the inability to sustain healthy and fulfilling relationships. Liberals and Conservatives tend to be  self centered, greedy, materialistic oriented persons. Their universe is usually small. self centered, superficial . Research has indicated that the  materialism  drive are due to a high neuroticism and low agreeableness.  They feel incomplete. That is why they use other people to fill up the inner gap. . They are intolerant of differences. They devalue others and put them at a lesser position. It is hard for self-centered people to have a real sense of empathy. Even if they do, it is usually conditional, depending on what they are receiving from the source they are empathizing with. They expect too much for what they are willing to give. Yes when you go deep inside, their real feeling of inadequacy reveals itself.  Don’t buy into their arrogance, don’t feed their excessive sense of self-importance. Don’t be their door mat. Have compassion for them since they  falsely have  created a wrong type of self-protection mode for them.  Beyond the fact of their self-delusion is the related  inability to admit to their own basic motivations . Neglect the poor and you will walk in their does next.

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2015/04/02/self-serving-sadly-seems-to-desribe-too-many-of-our-politicians-ministers-civil-and-public-servants/ .

.
It is really sad  and that’s what you get when lying people bury their heads in the sand and still keep saying things are just great in Alberta. Is towns while the reality paints a different picture. . It’s not a surprise that now many families are packing up and evacuating this wild west  and moving back to civilization. Can you blame them. crime is out of control.  Yes   the last boom brought   sky-high prices for everything, made a lot of angry unhappy people. And the last oil boom attracted a lot of gangs and organized crime to  Alberta  that made things much worse.  Cost ineffective useless mostly police does not help much.

.

Basic public services are also affected negatively  because of the downturn,  for example    Calgary could cover its  major Bus transit shortages across the entire city by adding 980,000 bus service hours, but it, lacks the revenue , cost  of the  fuel.. The city would need to add that number of hours to cover 95 per cent of Calgary’s residential hours with baseline bus service running at least every 30 minutes. Presently  229,000 residents, or 18 per cent of the city’s population and 58,000 jobs, don’t enjoy a base level of bus service.

.

Calgary saw a break-in per hour in 2015 as property crime surged   Some say that “They’re doing this, generally, to support their drug habit, or alcohol addiction, or some other addiction.”  The clearance rate on break and enter crimes was just 11.5 per cent last year, down from 14.1 per cent in 2014. This seems to he the way things go when  a person’s  loses the  way to make money honestly and provide for their families, still no excuses.

.

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

.

And what about still dealing with our elected political members, civil and public servants who too often have abused the tax payers generosity now as well, they also seem still to get away with it.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/04/17/the-governments-politicians-cares-about-or-own-good-welfare-firstly-the-best-joke-of-the-year-too/ .

April 22, 2015

one of the most read topics here is the subject of bad police officers in Canada

All Police force members are to held accountable for their actions on the job. And  Members of the Police forces  should be held to a higher standard when it comes to the law because of the trust we put in them to enforce the law. They should get severely punished for their failure to do so, especially in circumstances where they abuse their position to try and cover up their very poor behaviour.  Abuse of authority and  Manipulation of the truth is well worthy of jail time for all bad police officers too.

.

A democratic, free nation never needs to fear any oppression, perversity  intimidation even  by police or the state.  Free speech is still a valid right for all too, not just for the bad persons, cops.. escalating violence by anyone leads to more violence.  The use of police force — against minorities and whites alike — is so poorly monitored that there is no precise accounting of how many citizens are abused, killed by officers, much less  the RELATED crucial details which tend to be  manifested only by the fact that citizens are posting unsettling cellphone Police videos and pictures of police brutality and because  of the many the records  are visible mostly from news media reports, some crucial details. Still details of  the race of officers and suspects, often are missing.  But still Canada has an ugly history of police abuses now too. The Police can do their part to repair their tarnished  images by firstly to acknowledging that  the person ‘s  rights, as an equal  the one right in front of them a person that the Police  force is supposed to  be  serving and protecting. even  to protect  people under arrest. And  people around the world are demanding more accountability from the  Governments , Civil and public servants, Police and all professionals too  

.

J36 .

Few bad  police  officers are ever charged and found guilty.. Less than one percent..  Face it one of the most read topics here is the subject of bad police officers in Canada which clearly indicates the citizens concern on this topic too. . The Police in Canada as well do owe a “special duty” to the “justice system,”, “Citizens” and all members of the police owe a special duty to be faithful to the justice system and the  taxpayers .

.

“When the perpetrators of any crime are police officers sworn to uphold the law, the objective of their denunciation also has heightened significance. “Public confidence in the honesty of the police is fundamental to the integrity of the criminal justice system.”. .

. 2 .

All persons in leadership office do also now have to face higher penalties as an example standard now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most  people is that all persons  in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included are always to be exemplary in behavior, conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, and thus to do so they now are also to be exemplary judged, prosecuted for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks. . 281 . Unacceptably too many officers facing criminal or police act charges remain suspended for years, using loopholes and stall tactics to stay on the payroll as long as possible before resigning or retiring. Officers convicted criminally are still paid, unless they are incarcerated and can’t report for duty, because only a police act conviction can lead to termination. Many officers facing criminal or police act charges remain suspended for years, using loopholes and stall tactics to stay on the payroll as long as possible before resigning or retiring. Officers convicted criminally are still paid, unless they are incarcerated and can’t report for duty, because only a police act conviction can lead to termination. .

.

Yes now what also has already raised the ire of the Citizens is that taxpayer’s cover costs for officers who are charged, but not convicted, of a criminal or disciplinary offence especially at a time when there is some criticism about the ever-increasing police budget. It is absurd that police are suspended with full pay while the local authorities, the Justice Department investigate , the court as well, all which can take years even. Paid leaves are unacceptable. The manner in which the administrations, criminal justice system handles cases involving police officers is driven by anything but the principle hat we are all equal in the eyes of the law.. Yes when the Police or the senior public officials are under investigation by the police, they should, at the very least be suspended at least with half-pay until the investigation concludes, to maintain public confidence in the system. . .

Four years after one of Hamilton’s highest-ranking police officers was suspended with pay, he has collected more than half a million dollars in salary and is eligible to retire without ever answering to his police act charges. Due to legal delay tactics and a controversial ruling by an adjudicator, are paving the way for Inspector David Doel to stave off his hearing until he can retire . If that happens, he will get his full retirement package, keep the money he “earned” while suspended and the 13 charges he faces — including having pornography on his police computer, having sex on duty and using police equipment to spy on an alleged former lover — will vanish. http://www.thespec.com/news-story/4232642-handcuffed-how-accused-cops-avoid-a-date-with-discipline/

.

After almost $600,000 in salary paid to him during more than four years of suspension, disgraced Hamilton police inspector David Doel is … comfortably retired. http://www.thespec.com/news-story/4442557-clairmont-retirement-saves-disgraced-hamilton-cop-from-charges/

.

And what constitutes even for the RCMP “gross misconduct” and a firing offence? Sexual incidents involving members are not tolerated. Neither, for that matter, are most cases of drunk driving and assault. But criminal convictions do not always lead to dismissals, and internal RCMP sanctions, if they result at all, can be weak. Serious cases of RCMP misconduct are not unusual, particularly, it seems, in B.C., where court documents outline serious indiscretions and allegations. Reporters have also obtained lists of RCMP adjudication board decisions that describe shocking behaviour and admissions by officers on active duty http://www.bcpolicecomplaints.org/bc_police_complaint_commissioner_stan_lowe_rollie_woods_coverup_vancouver_vpd_taylor_robinson_brutality.html . .

The Police Managers, Politicians, Police Unions, the Police themselves are Facing Nation Wide Outrage , Public Anger  Canada wide   is an UNDENIABLE problem in how the police do their jobs. . So how do the administrators  deal with it? They threaten laws suits against those who try to complain..

.

All Police officers do not only need to maintain the respect and good will of citizens to do their job effectively, they also depend on that good will in their salary, pensions and benefits, in which they have been even far more successful than other public employees in recent years. . The undeniable present lack of trust of police by the minority community is also unacceptable. .

.

When Police enforcement goes bad, the police and the police unions historically close ranks around suspect officers Police PR and these Police cover-ups will not do. . It is important for the police unions, Police managers to become honestly self-critical about police conduct and to not blindly defend each and every egregious incident by officers.

.

And the criminal justice system should be doing what it was supposed to do, carry out real, valid   justice against the police now too. . These total ongoing increasing costs in defending bad officers which will also next result in fewer officers on the street . All Police criminal trials can be expensive. A multimillion-dollar legal bill for five former Toronto police drug squad officers is absurd. John Schertzer and four other officers were convicted in June of attempting to obstruct justice. Three of the officers were also convicted of perjury…

.

All police divisions need to hire, train, supervise, retain, to property train and/or supervise officers and to conduct a fair and impartial investigation even against police officers, . Any Police officers can even be charged for “unlawful detention,   battery, false arrest and unreasonable search and seizure,  the use of excessive and deadly unjustified, unreasonable, and illegal use of excessive force, including deadly force .

.

About the money. Looking more at concerns that many citizens have raised in recent years about police practices, many are about money and police departments’ roles in collecting it—whether to supplement their own or their municipality’s budget. Even there is a concern about the usage of radars, automated speed cameras and whether their use was being driven by public safety goals or a desire to maximize revenue and not  reducing  the deaths of citizens in car accidents. The re is  serious concerns about the immoral  behavior by the Police department and court system aimed at advancing revenue collection rather than public safety—and that fact that too many of those efforts were managed to ensure that the Police department was “bringing in revenue at the desired rate.” Creating a way for police activities to become partially self-funding, and setting them up in that way that as rather “criminals” seems to be politically attractive and has the approval  of the Police itself. 

.

It is too common for small towns even like Canmore Alberta  to falsely raise revenues from traffic enforcement..

.  

 Watch out for the RCMP speed trap in Canmore , Alberta as you leave Banff park.. it generates the RCMP millions and millions of dollars per year.  ( Revenue generating ) “Speed limits in the mountain parks are set with an eye toward preventing collisions with wildlife.” ( and how often does that occur? once a year?).  

.

Canmore  the home of the perverse Canmore Traffic court, and RCMP  traffic ticket revenue generation as I have already written about.

.

  Police do love to lie and say that all accidents are mostly speed related, to justify their fat cow cash grabs, especially in Alberta and in Ontario now too.. they lump all of their homemade statistics as the accidents, deaths related all to speeding.. but not in reality to drunk driver, bad drivers, road rage, poor roads, bad snow cleaning..  This is also still simply not acceptable. There is a direct link between DRIVING and collisions. The MORE you drive, the more likely you are to be involved in a collision and the more likely you are to get seriously hurt . So the police will now give tickets to all drivers   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/06/20/watch-out-for-the-money-making-speed-traps/ .

.

About the municipalities and their false collection of revenue through traffic fines these municipalities “victimize those whom they are designed to protect.” and these practices are “immoral.”  The additional taxation of the citizens through traffic enforcement is unacceptable even if it s falsely being carried out Canada wide. What’s the point of fining people for violating the rules of the road? Surely it is to ensure motorists are driving safely and not endangering others. That obvious point, it seems, is lost on Canada’s municipal and provincial governments, which are increasingly treating traffic tickets as just another source of revenue http://news.nationalpost.com/full-comment/national-post-view-raising-revenue-on-the-roads .

About 10 years ago, police charged an Alberta driver with careless driving for flashing his headlights at oncoming drivers to warn them of a speed trap ahead. The driver fought the ticket. At trial, the Crown argued that flashing high beams was dangerous because it might startle other drivers thereby distracting them and causing accidents. The judge wasn’t buying that. He ruled that drivers flashed their lights at one another for plenty of reasons, some of which enhanced safety — such as reminding another motorist to dim his brights. Besides, the judge added, the government’s principal purpose in setting up speed traps was to ensure drivers operated their vehicles at a safe rate of speed. It was not to raise money through fines. So since light-flashing motorists served the same purpose as government speed traps — keeping traffic within the speed limit — the government had no authority to end the practice of one driver giving another a heads-up. http://www.edmontonsun.com/2014/10/23/revenue-crucial-for-photo-radar-gunter

Speeding is not a major cause of  vehicular  accidents  but drunk driving rather is. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/?s=speeding

.

Winnipeg residents are up in arms because the city has been collecting record amounts of money from fines on drivers who break the rules, in part because it has refused to let drivers know what the rules actually are. Revenue received from photo-radar tickets increased 25 per cent between 2013 and 2014, generating $14.6 million last year — the equivalent of a $22-a-year tax for every resident. The city also took in $4.5 million from other types of traffic tickets. Part of the increase was due to the introduction of new rules lowering the speed limit in school zones and doubling fines in construction zones. http://news.nationalpost.com/news/canada/winnipeg-traffic-tickets

Photo radar’s real goal..  Are motorists school-zone scoff laws or haplessly feeding a cash cow? http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/opinion/analysis/photo-radars-real-goal-299297351.html . .

Even the RCMP are known to be unprofessional as well as  cost ineffective.. even alcoholics and so are many other police forces in Canada now too. I have dealt with the RCMP 6 times and rigthfully have no respect left  for the incompetent,  lying , pretentious RCMP. In fact I  had been abused  by the RCMP in Canmore Alberta  twice and next I saw firsthand how the RCMP  lied, covered up their own.. Say no to an RCMP police State  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/11/10/rcmp-managers-abuse-their-employees-and-get-a-ridiculous-punishment-for-it-next-too/ .

.

The per versed  municipal courts too often do lie at the heart of this corrupted police, justice system now too.. Their  criminals out of citizens who want to abide by law and then they the citizens  can’t get jobs that would bring in taxes clearly has the devil’s support. . These municipal officials need to be charged with corruption and racketeering. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/07/15/they-often-do-steal-the-designated-monies/ .

.

While the goal of having every call for Police service fast and effectively, actively engaging diverse communities, preparing for security threats like terrorism, and responding to societal problems as varied as drug abuse, mental illness, youth violence and human trafficking, having discretionary resources to allow the police flexibility in their efforts to do all those different tasks seems to be a viable goal, the devil is always in the false diversions, Promotions and empire building. These are certainly competing goals here. If the Police Management, officers start getting overly rewarded for how much revenue they bring in, the legitimate  concern becomes whether their law enforcement action will become driven more by the goal of revenue and less by the goal of public safety, service as is too often the case. They should not be forced to think more like a sales person than a public servant. . It shouldn’t be a surprise that the prospect of police departments generating revenue would seem like a great idea to municipal leaders and to the police leadership. As the ability to achieve promotional goals is significantly driven by having the monetary resources available to do so.

.

During the financial crisis, Provincial, federal and local budgets are hit hard. The pain of tight budgets has been felt across the board in many jurisdictions and the resources available to police departments fell, requiring changes like service and staff cuts.”

.

Yes the citizens rightfully do the government, police, courts, to be effective at minimal cost, thereby limiting the burden of taxes on the public. But Citizens “wouldn’t expect other public mission agencies—the public health department, for example—to become profit centers, and we shouldn’t expect that from law enforcement.” . A Perceptions of police officers as merely collection agents rather than public protectors cannot help but undermine that legitimacy and trust. Too many citizens have lost confidence in the police amd the justice systems. . . Amongst the major Citizens concerns are all of the related taxpayer’s is the high legal costs of the lawyers with their high lawyer. rates for a start , example of $470 per hour and hourly rates of $275 for a lawyer with six years experience, $260 for a first-year lawyer, $230 for an articling student and $235 for a law clerk should make us more costs conscious as well . Among the absurd legal fees approved this year was a bill of $280,000 for the successful defence in provincial court of a constable charged with assault bodily harm during the arrest of a suspected drug dealer. “The fees were substantial due to the protracted period of time it took to conclude the matter,” . And even if acquitted of criminal charges, all charged police officers accused of wrongdoing should be the focus of a coroner’s inquiry, a civil suit or a complaint to a civilian review agency. . see also https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/01/21/so-who-realy-protects-the-canadian-citizens-from-the-too-often-bad-cops-bad-rcmp/ .

Needless to say police resources are often misused where even the mayors do instruct the police to find out all they can about their opposition members too.  ” and it all is still unacceptable! Free speech is a right for bullies, crooks, abusers only it still seems in Canada now. Police already have arrested me for complaining about the Calgary Police in the Calgary Police chief office even.. the charge was talking out loud in a public place.. Many people are shocked to discover free speech is not being allowed too often in many places in Canada,  on the net, in churches, letters to governments, to the news editors too… the police have visited me or objected now at least 7 times in response to my writings.. still decades later I  am still rightfully openly complaining about the much too many bad police supervisors and the too many bad acts of the so called professionals, the police included. The abuse of the citizens is not acceptable anywhere. . .

THERE ARE MUCH TOO MANY BAD COPS IN CANADA -FIRE THEM ALL NOW 

.

No cop is above the law. Too bad for them they are paid to work still too.

.

Police still fail to catch most of the real criminals including the car thieves, and the Fraud perpetrated over the Internet which still is a growing citizen concern in Canada and throughout the world. The police always claim they lack resources, they will never have enough resources if they reuse to do a decent days work for their pay. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/03/24/the-police-cannot-get-the-crimminals/  .

.

“A new Alberta police database will track citizen’s every interaction with police, and it can be used without a warrant or even a supervisor’s permission”.. they had an old system already do doing this too..   the police falsely too often do not observe the laws..   . The Alberta government has passed new legislation designed to reduce the number of  complaints against police officers. The changes, which include new restrictions on who can launch a complaint, more powers to dismiss frivolous complaints and provisions to shorten appeals, are Unacceptable. .

.

Alberta is clearly another  police state.. where I got arrested for failing to pay a speeding ticket, 3 tickets from the same cop in Alberta even, and twice on the same spot in Canmore, Alberta by the RCMP, I next got no tickets for decades in Quebec and elsewhere. Ironically the same Conservatives who preach the letter of the law approach on others, tend not to practise it too often themselves, tend to feel falsely they are above the law.. the law of personal accountability.  I even got arrested in the Calgary Chief of police office for talking too loud, I had said you cops are crooked  while trying to file my rightful   police complaint. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/03/24/the-police-cannot-get-the-crimminals/
.
 
LAZY, INDIFFERENT, IMMORAL, BAD POLICE, BAD JUSTICE MINSTERS, BAD SOLICITOR GENERALS  is not a new aspect in Ottawa, Ontario, Alberta, Quebec, BC,  and in the rest of Canada.  A useless , no good, bad Conservative politician  is not any better for any of us over a useless , no good, bad Liberal  politician in Canada now too.
.
 
SO NEVER  EXPECT A FULL HONEST INVESTIGATION WHEN CLEARY THE RESULTS WILL SHOW BAD COPS, BAD ATTORNEY GENERALS, BAD MINISTERS WHO HAVE NOT BEING DOING A GOOD JOB. ALL UNACCEPTABLE.  NOW WHY IS IT BAD PEOPLE DO NOT CHANGE NEXT BESIDE THE FACT THEY LIKE TO DO BAD THINGS, IT IS ALSO CAUSE THEY FALSELY  REFUSE TO ADMIT THE THINGS THEY DO ARE BAD.

.

 You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors,  police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers, bad PERSONS   who STILL DO say that ALL OF  bad people, INCLUDING the ALCOHOLICS, the bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. 
.
 NOW WHY IS IT BAD PEOPLE DO NOT CHANGE NEXT BESIDE THE FACT THEY LIKE TO DO BAD THINGS, IT IS ALSO CAUSE THEY FALSELY  REFUSE TO ADMIT THE THINGS THEY DO ARE BAD.
.

The RCMP maximum 10 days punishment is always absurd, permanent dismissal is what is always needed with the bad cops and their clearly bad superiors who had managed and hired them too.. Bad solicitor generals and bad Justice Ministers, bad Premiers, bad Prime Ministers as well should all be fired ASAP.  The Canadian Justice is too often an empty one. The establishment cover ups for it’s own and prevails.   Imagine that we have liars for justice Ministers and cops too.

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/05/25/canadas-two-tiered-justice-system-opposed/

.

DON’T BE STUPID AND BELIEVE ALL THE LYING SPINS AS TO WHY IT TAKES SO LONG TO INVESTIGATE THE BAD COPS.. I have had many experiences in laying simple complaints against bad cops that never got anywhere cause the investigators were clearly pretenders.. in Contrast the investigations of all citizens clearly would not take so long..
 .
Decades and decades later the police are still  covering up for their own again and again but the police are not the only bad professionals who do this these days as well, so do the Hospitals, doctors, nurses, civil and public servants, governments… When it comes to dealing with the rightful needs, complaints of the ordinary citizens our Canadian civil and public servants, politicians and their representatives too, and most church pastors now too, they are still mostly unacceptable liars and  PRETENDERS, LAZY, GOOD FOR NOTHING PERSONS,  and that has been mostly my undeniable experiences the last 4 decades now too..  How about having now some real professionalism.
.

They the police are an essential part of our community for sure, but they all also do need to be fiscally responsible . . We do till do need to Manage EVEN the RCMP more effectively. There are about 19,200 regular members and another 3,760 civilians in the RCMP. RCMP racks up $800M in overtime in 5 years The total does not include extra duty pay for standby or operational readiness. http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2012/12/04/rcmp-overtime-costs-harris.html

. .

Now “it’s also true that the police costs in general, and the related police salaries in particular, are now out of control. My very contacts with the police for decades have also left me seriously wondering what these people do. As far as I am concerned they are all already overpaid. . Most police officers are very well compensated overall, with too many making well over $100K per year, and they still do get a very generous pensions and many paid days off. Right now they are also paying retired officers, who are collecting their full pensions, $75 an hour to walk around the airport and babysit crime scenes. That’s all thus the equivalent of $150K per year. . The total spending on police services nationally has doubled since 1997, is reaching $12-billion. While the average Canadian income has grown by 11 per cent over the past decade, the average police salary has grown by 40 per cent. . The cost of Policing is doing to municipal budgets what health care is doing to provincial budgets: threatening to consume them.” Both systems do need better cost control management too..

.

Canada’s Police Among the Best Paid in the World. While the volume and severity of crime in Canada have been steadily declining for the last decade, police strength has gone in the other direction. There are now 200 officers for every 100,000 people – an increase of 9 per cent since 2001, though homicides rates are at their lowest in more than 30 years. Some high-crime cities, such as Regina and Winnipeg, have high police strength, but so, too, do cities such as Toronto and Montreal, which rank low on the crime-severity index. The number of Criminal Code incidents per officer has declined steadily since peaking 20 years ago . Unlike other public-sector employees, many municipal police forces continue to receive annual raises that outpace inflation. From 2009 to 2011, expenditures on police salaries and benefits increased by 5 per cent across the country, while other police operating expenditures fell 4 per cent, Statistics Canada reports.

.

A first-class officer in Canada’s big cities now earns $80,000-$90,000 a year on average – before overtime and benefits. That makes them among the most generously compensated police in the world. During this year of hard-pressed public finances, the Toronto Police Association negotiated an 11.5-per-cent pay increase over the next four years for its members. Officers get 18 annual days of sick leave, and can bank unused leave, half of which can then be paid out in salary. They can retire at 50, with full pensions, after 30 years of service. http://terrywhitehead.ca/canadas-police-among-the-best-paid-in-the-world/

 .

The cost of policing cannot continue to rise indefinitely in Canada, or cities will end up bankrupt. Pools, camps, parks and libraries will have to close. There are other municipalities with the largest police officers per 100,000 population and they have still some of the worse crime statistics. Adding more police officers especially bad ones does not necessarily guarantee that we yield better results. .

,

LAZY, INDIFFERENT, IMMORAL, BAD POLICE, BAD JUSTICE MINSTERS, BAD SOLICITOR GENERALS  is not a new aspect in Ottawa, Ontario and in the rest of Canada. SO NEVER  EXPECT A FULL HONEST INVESTIGATION WHEN CLEARY THE RESULTS WILL SHOW BAD COPS, BAD ATTORNEY GENERALS, BAD MINISTERS WHO HAVE NOT BEING DOING A GOOD JOB. ALL UNACCEPTABLE.

.

The sad truth about how many  Canadian cops get convicted for on-duty shootings? None.. says it all too..

The biggest factor in crash fatalities, OPP

 pm stephen harper beer 4

In spite of the fact only 21 percent of deaths in car crashes were caused by speeding the police issue the most resources, tickets, fines on “speeding” still.

Driver inattention the biggest factor in crash fatalities, OPP say Drawing on 10 years of data from investigations, the Ontario Provincial Police are concluding the majority of fatal collisions on OPP-patrolled roads and highways are a result of poor driving behaviour or driver error.  There were 287 deaths from 265 fatal crashes in 2014.  According to the OPP, 73 were related to distracted driving, 46 were related to impaired driving, 61 were related to speeding, and 50 were related to not wearing a seat belt or a helmet.  There are other factors in collision fatalities as well, police said, and they include animal-related collisions, a driver being under medical distress, and so on. But those factors are not a part of the majority.

.

Though for the past seven months Saskatchewan drivers have faced fines for texting or emailing while driving, three Regina driving instructors have seen little decrease. In 2013, there were 5,745 collisions related to distracted driving, according to SGI; 32 people died and nearly 2,000 were injured. In a recent CAA poll, Canadians ranked texting while driving as their top road safety concern, above drinking and driving, running red lights, speeding and other concerns.

http://www.leaderpost.com/technology/Texting+while+driving+concern+Sask+Poll/10798577/story.html

.

Alcohol-related charges up 37% from last January: OPP The number of alcohol-related charges is up in January compared to the same time last year, according to statistics released by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP). Police laid 118 impaired driving charges in January, versus 86 charges in January of 2014, which is an increase of 37 per cent.
.

Meanwhile, data from Statistics Canada (1986 to 2011) shows the vast majority of those charged with drinking and driving are male. In 2011, there were 90,277 impaired driving incidents with 82.4 per cent charged being males and 19.6 per cent females. However, there’s been a steady increase in impaired female drivers since the 1980s, while the number of impaired male drivers has decreased slightly.  Statistics Canada numbers from 2011 also show the highest impaired driving rates occurred within the 20 to 24 age group. The rates decrease with increasing age. Also, drivers under 35 years old account for two-thirds of those accused of impaired driving causing death and causing injury in 2011.

.
Too many people Canada wide do now often complain about still being harassed, bullied by Traffic cops and getting unnecessary traffic tickets, especially it seems in Ontario, Alberta too. Cops are no angels themselves for sure. 
https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/?s=speeding
.
It has been my own real witness, experiences the last 50 years that some of the most crooked persons in Canada who firstly do deserve to be jailed, ticketed are the much too many of our bad civil and public servants, bad politicians, bad cops, bad RCMP now as well, and do include here the bad doctors and bad nurses, bad hospital administrators, bad justice ministers, bad health ministers, bad consumer affairs ministers as well….
 about 85 percent of the major, real criminals Canada wide now too are never jailed, incarcerated because the too often buck passing and useless  police themselves firstly are bad, they are too lay and clearly incompetent to do their jobs, so they the police do compensate for this by wrongfully giving out money revenue generating traffic tickets to meet their false quotas now even.. for the cops are too often crooked now.. now their supervisors are not any better.

Theft by perverse Lawmakers, Administrators

 canada-police-farce

The Montreal Police Brotherhood is calling on lawmakers to reduce the quotas of tickets officers are expected to write in an effort to put police back to more important police work. A police department is expected “to give more and more tickets to get more money for the city hall,” The quotas for police do seem steep. According to the Police brotherhood, a biker cop is expected to write 18 tickets a day, and a traffic officer, 16. The union is absolutely right in its claim that the police priority should be the security of the public, not the financial security of the city.

.

NYPD Citations for traffic violations fell from 10,069 to 587 in the week starting Dec. 22 . The NYPD confirmed a report that arrests have plummeted in the wake of the murder of two police officers in Brooklyn on Dec. 20. and citations for traffic violations fell 94% in the week starting Dec. 22 compared with the same period a year ago,  Even parking violations are way down, dropping by 92 percent, from 14,699 to 1,241,  and what  we’re supposed to see this as a bad thing? Not at all.  Whose safety concerns were the main reason for the drop off in police activity? The NYPD’s new  failure to arrest and cite people will also end up costing the city hall itself  huge amounts of money that it won’t be able to steal, seize from its citizens, acts themselves which are the real perversity.

.

The same slow down  is going on in Quebec  by the police but for a different reason..

.
“It’s very sad, now, policing is becoming a business, it’s taking justice and putting it on the business side, the situation shows an abuse of the trust citizens put in their government.  They’re paying for a police service,”  What they’re getting are tickets. ” Are rather being robbed.
.
Speeding undeniably is not and has never been the main cause of personal vehicular accidents so a theft, by the clearly also still perverse  Lawmakers, Administrators,   wolves in sheep clothing, of  the citizens purse strings is clearly really still perverse and unacceptable. Even so when the Municipalities themselves do face budget cuts..
.
wolves in sheep clothing
 .
 The reality of a pile-on effect of the too often still  unwarranted fines leading to the robbing of he citizens money by perverse administrators  is  leading to more serious disrespect of the overall justice, political systems while no  one seems to care about this falsely too.  
 .
Yes  the serious degeneration of respect by particularly by the poor, working poor, of petty law enforcement fines related to how they move generally harmlessly through the world will have negative consequences on the overall system itself especially   while the rather too often perverse civic leaders themselves show no mercy, sympathy to the citizens rights.  Citizens too often  discover  the dire Effects of Petty Law Enforcement regarding the usage of their cars, supposedly public safety too now,  while the same political administrators who demand for economically gain the enforcement of the laws, abuse the tax payers money on the jobs with their out of town travels, lavish personal expense accounts, fine dining, bribes as well..
 .
The too common nation wide  phenomenon of the administrators false emphasis  on  misdemeanour crimes comes about not cause the citizens have really done something wrong but is  more strongly linked to administrative economics thefts over  any real  misdemeanour offense and leads furthermore to a false increase of the citizens court costs and their personal insurance on their cars as well and  this is generally a two fold robbery thus.  
 .
Sadly not Just in the US but in Canada now as well the mostly petty bylaw enforcement to falsely reduce the poor citizens of their hard earned money by the  the courts, political administrators has lead to the the rightful serious lack of respect for law enforcement officers and the Justice system now as well . A fact the police themselves are aware when they often in sympathy refuse to enforce the false quota put on traffic,speeding tickers.The reasons for the state to deprive falsely someone of the right to move about by our culture’s most efficient means are multiplying even:  Most  traffic tickets being issued these days still  had nothing to do with any demonstrated inability to drive well.  A large number of tickets are for reasons that have nothing to do with unsafe driving. These reasons include even more unpaid traffic tickets, falling behind on child support,
 .
“ A study in 2013 from the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators raised concerns that police and state and local motor vehicle officials find too much of their time and budget tied up going after people with suspensions for minor law breaking that has nothing to do with safe driving.

Unbeliveable, disgusting, what a claim

Liberal_

He claims he can be a competent premier but he is raising the taxes. cutting back on services as Quebec is broke, busted…

quebec-broke

 ‘
Bad Dr Porter’s relationship with Dr. P. Couillard, who was Quebec’s health minister  and now the Premier of Quebec too, at the time, appears to be far more extensive than previously thought.  Couillard, claims he did not know that his long time business partner was a crook must have really really bad jugdement  or is lying.  Not only did Couillard and Porter go on fishing trips when Porter served as chief executive officer of the MUHC, he says, but Porter claims that Couillard phoned him every day for political advice.  http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Arthur+Porter+dishes+dirt+Harper+Couillard/10188705/story.html

but the same person Couillard could not spot a crook even as he worked with him for years..  but I can work with a person one day and likely tell you if he is a crook, immoral or not..  and that is why I tend to spell Liberals as Lieberals..

.

The really bad  Liberals  including DR Philippe Couillard  who had  allowed this province to go down in a mess, corruptions THEY STILL REALLY do not deserve to be a governing party ever. I am not a politician, but as an ordinary Citizen I knew that Dr Porter was likely clearly corrupt, the MUHC corrupted, and the city of Montreal as well and I had objected to it. And if Pauline Marois and her separatist  party fail to address the corruptions now properly, instead of sweeping it under the table as has been done wrongfully  for decades, they too  do not deserve to be a governing party ever Both the Liberals and the PQ parties had failed to properly deal with English language laws already too..

.

In 2006, Couillard, then health minister in the Liberal government, agreed to bring Quebec doctors’ salaries in line with those of their colleagues in the rest of Canada. As president of the FMSQ from 2010 to 2014, Barrette had defended the agreement before changing his tone when he became minister of health.

Now he is calling for a delay of the pay raise as part of the Couillard government’s promise to plug the provincial deficit by 2016. The value of the pay hike has been estimated to be anywhere between $900 million and $1.2 billion. Doctors’ salaries account for 62 per cent of the Régie assurance maladie du Québec’s yearly budget, amounting to $6.5 billion.

Instead of clawing back doctors’ salaries, the government should deal with the “daily waste related to the mismanagement of hospitals,” Francoeur wrote in a fiery editorial in Le Specialiste, the FMSQ’s monthly magazine.  http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Medical+specialists+accuse+Quebec+health+minister+negotiating+faith/10211519/story.html

Wife pleads guilty to laundering money for former spy watchdog Arthur Porter

The wife of Arthur Porter, the accused fraudster and former head of the federal spy watchdog, has admitted to laundering millions of dollars stolen from the public purse. Yet Dr.  Arthur Porter, and Dr. P. Couillard,  still insist the whole event is a lie, perverse fabrication, they are  not guilty of any wrong doing..

Canada’s monopolistic , self serving, greedy , immoral telecommunications firms

Bell Canada Slapped With  $1M Fine For Faking App Reviews. Canada’s Competition Bureau is imposing an a  $1.25 million fine on crooked  Bell Canada for posting online reviews of its products and services. The posts were   made by the company’s own employees who did not disclose their relation with the company. Bell employees encouraged by the company to post good reviews and give five star ratings to the MyBell Mobile and Virgin My Account apps. 

The alleged fake posts were found out by Scott Stratten who already knew how the apps performed poorly in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Then suddenly, he noticed how the apps started to increase its rankings which made him curious. He decided to do some research at LinkedIn and learned that most of the reviews came from various staff members of Bell such as the company’s IT Executives, Marketing Managers and Project Managers.   These reviews and ratings created the “materially false or misleading” general impression that they were made by independent and impartial consumers and temporarily affected the overall star rating for the apps.   This  misleading advertising under Canadian competition law is prohibited  as it creates the false impression that independent consumers have had positive experiences with that product or service . The Competition Bureau said certain Bell employees in November 2014 posted positive reviews and ratings of the new version of the free MyBell Mobile app and Virgin My Account app on the iTunes App Store and the Google Play Store, without disclosing that they work for Bell. The Commissioner of Competition announced that it had entered into a Consent Agreement with Bell Canada in connection with certain Bell employees posting misleading reviews and ratings of the company’s mobile applications. Under the terms of the Consent Agreement, Bell must not “direct, encourage or incentivize  its employees or contractors to “rate, rank or review apps in app stores.” Additionally, the Consent Agreement requires Bell to enhance and maintain its compliance program and pay a $1.25 million administrative monetary penalty. Many companies plant reviews to bolster products and perhaps now they will think twice knowing the Competition Bureau could take serious action.”It’s sending a message to everybody, saying ethics are important and we will be watching over it.”. Bell says positive employee-planted reviews will stop, but critics unsure

Canadians can access broadband using either wire line or wireless facilities but in order to meet the high demands of cell phones, Canada’s major telecommunications firms and their subs they are  failing to deliver the capacities  as originally promised, Canada’s major telecommunications firms and their subs they are  not keeping their contractual obligations, are falsely  cutting back on internet capacity and speeds,  so all of this is still a major issue with Canada’s major telecommunications firms and their subs..  while  they advertise a certain speed but likely you next still only get half of it as they cap their downloads and speeds..   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/06/23/can-bell-do-its-job-and-provide-me-now-their-proper-services/

Five Canadian consumer and public interest groups say that Bell and Astral’s new proposed merger is not in the public interest and should be denied. Five Canadian consumer and public interest groups say that Bell and Astral’s new proposed merger is not in the public interest and should be denied. The Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC), who also acts as counsel for the Consumers’ Association of Canada (CAC), Council of Senior Citizens’ Organization of British Columbia (COSCO), National Pensioners and Senior Citizens Federation (NPSCF) and Option consommateurs (OC) filed comments with the CRTC on Friday opposing the proposed acquisition of Astral Media Inc. by Bell Canada, a division of BCE Inc.  “Increased media concentration into the hands of few large vertically integrated telecommunications and media companies will not result in more competition in the market,” said John Lawford, PIAC executive director and general counsel, in a statement. “The loss of Astral in the marketplace does not deliver more competition for consumers. Any increases to Bell’s size will further threaten the ability of independent broadcasters and broadcasting distributors to effectively compete against the highly concentrated, tight oligopoly of large media companies that own both broadcasting and distribution services.”  The groups stated the deal would be bad for consumers and outlined several concerns, including:  http://www.cartt.ca/news/15358/Radio-Television/PIAC-other-consumer-groups-speak-out-against-Bell-Astral-II.html

 consumer advocacy group is asking the CRTC to turn down the Bell-Astral merger for a second time, saying a bigger Bell won’t be better for competition or choice.    The advocacy group says the market already isn’t meeting consumers’ expectations for choice, flexibility and affordability, and approving the deal doesn’t promise to make the situation any better. http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/story/2013/05/07/business-bell-astral-piac.html

Cogeco also still opposes revised Bell-Astral deal, saying it’s not good for consumers. “Canadian consumers of television entertainment can only expect rising costs for their viewing options on fixed and mobile platforms, more forced packaging of BCE services and less choice in the selection of services they actually wish to use,” the company said in a news release.

In Canada these days there is a big public outcry about legal tax avoidance by big firms.  It also now seems obvious in retrospect that self regulation also does not work. Effective supervisions, vigilance , controls are  always needed.. I also do still  think it’s time to break up the telecom monopoly in Canada as these mostly  still robber barrons cant be trusted with freedom on the internet or with our phones…

.

Firms  that hire expensive lobbyists and seem to hand out extravagant gifts including golf outings, trips, and even opera tickets to legislators willing to vote their way. These firms   with their false one sided contracts do  still for  freedom from regulation, oversight and pursue  the right to abandon their full responsibility to their customers, even with their immoral price hijacks  rates for any false excuses now too. I have already rightfully, often written Posts about our too often bad telecommunications firms, Internet firms  and Bell, Rogers and Telus are still not about to give up their greedy, immoral ways .  These rather too often price gougers too still do seem falsely to like to find any excuse to stick more charges to the customers even 

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/tag/telecommunications-firms/

.

One sided contracts are illegal  as any contract is illegal when it is either contrary to a statute or is contrary to public policy.   and all illegal contracts are not enforceable. Thus if you enter into an agreement with another person and you know or have reason to suspect the bargain has some taint of illegality or immorality merely don’t take the risk and exposit it to all.

.

And https://postedat.wordpress.com/2011/06/28/the-10-commandments-are-still-applicable-today-for-all-corporations-and-business-persons-included/

.

These big firms that offer these now essential services too  they are too often useless, pretentious, immoral even, and the words “customer care” here clearly are misleading, false, they rather are paid company employees who look after the customer’s sole interest who quote the firms own policies, rights, demands.. These same mostly self serving firms and department, persons tend to disrespect even the federal and provincial laws, the consumer protection laws included as ai have found out myself many times now too. They all tend to firstly really not care about any of the customer’s personal abuses, hardships, losses, pains, concerns for almost all of these corporations solely care only about the firm’s own profitability, and their sole, bottom line for them is making more of the almighty buck not matter what the costs, even to the customers.  Still sadly almost all OF Canada’s telecommunications firms have a grossly one sided contract terms, definitions that mainly dictates out the rights of the firms only and not the customers rights, and this is grossly both illegal and immoral. Public exposure and prosecution of the liars, bullies, abusers, guilty firms serves everyone’s best interest. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/06/28/bell-canada-to-pay-a-penalty-of-10-million-for-making-misleading-advertising-claims/
.

According to Canada’s Commissioner for Complaints for Telecommunications Services 2011-2012 report, wireless services topped the complaints list. In the rising flood, Telus was the only company among Canada’s big three that had a drop in complaints — 13 per cent. Bell chalked up a hike of 17 per cent and Rogers Communications complaints rose by a whopping 112 per cent. Among cable service providers, Shaw saw complaints climb 335 per cent.”  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/tag/bell-aliant/

.

Those sly subversive foxes at the CRTC TEND STILL TO  SOLELY FOR THEIR OWN INTEREST and all very very far from the pretense that is to the consumer benefit. To promote competition and to prevent market abuse by the largest players there needs to be a mix of effective oversight, and regulation   to allow real competition in the marketplace to take hold with real price decreases now too

.

It is clear the rich do continually get richer by satisfying their immoral  greed by drastically creaming off profits, and not fulfilling their promised responsibility by investment in adequate Customers  services. It seems obvious in all retrospect that self regulation does not work where the main  motive is  monetary  profit.  Also these Profits do leave the country, that’s the problem! They tend rather to go off to tax havens and we don’t see their further benefits. The  past privatisation of any of our basic essential service  needs, such as telecommunication and also Medicare,  in order to provide  profits for a few was and is always  foolish, destructive approach.  We must not tolerate any further citizen suffering caused by selfish profits, and it is time to bring back all of the basic  utilities and essential services back into democratic control, and to renationalise them.  it’s time all of the essential services, water, energy, rail, airlines  and communications were all taken back into public ownership without any recompense to those who hold the shares. They have already taken more than enough in profits and dividends.

.

Rogers, one of the largest telecom companies in the country, has found a way to block our access to affordable mobile services. We’re now looking at a future where just three mobile telecom giants could control a monopoly of the Internet and phones services, holding back progress and innovation. This is totally unacceptable.

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/tag/rogers/

.

So Now still who really protects the ordinary Canadian citizens from the too often bad, immoral  firms in reality, now  holding the much too many crooked   firms to accountability and next falsely  if there is any justice  it takes years to do so.. and for decades  or  not much good  tends to happen next anyway..  as “We Have a Coin-Operated Government”  Now you would think that our public and civil servants, politicians would by now know how to deal with all of these crooks without me having to tell them and all about it still.

Bell, Shaw and Rogers still can’t seem to provide good customer services! why?

It is basicaly cause they still do not care for the customers as they still are too greedy soley for the customer’s  money..

Wireless complaints on the rise for two of Canada’s top three telecoms “According to Canada’s Commissioner for Complaints for Telecommunications Services 2011-2012 report, wireless services topped the complaints list. In the rising flood, Telus was the only company among Canada’s big three that had a drop in complaints — 13 per cent. Bell chalked up a hike of 17 per cent and Rogers Communications complaints rose by a whopping 112 per cent. Among cable service providers, Shaw saw complaints climb 335 per cent.”

.

“Bell, Virgin and Solo had 31.5 per cent of complaints, compared to 34.3 per cent for Rogers, Fido and ChatR, and 13 per cent for Telus and Koodo.

Billing accounted for a 51 per cent of issues raised by clients: bills for services they didn’t request; bills at a higher rate than quoted; being billed twice for the same services; and being billed for wireless service after their devices were lost, stolen or taken in for repair.

In 231 complaints, customers found that disputes with a telecom provider ended up on their credit reports. This can often result in last-minute denial of a mortgage, loan or credit card application.

The CCTS breaks down the number of complaints by service provider. Here’s how the major players, along with their discount wireless brands, stacked up in 2011-12:

Rogers (2,881); Fido (824); ChatR Wireless (16)

Bell Canada (2,749); Virgin Mobile (491); Solo (176)

Telus (1,211); Koodo (202)

Once again the Big firms like Rogers tend not to respect the laws..

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/01/14/oppose-the-price-increases-lack-of-competition/

OTTAWA — Rogers Communications Inc., is breaking Canada’s Internet traffic management rules by deliberately slowing down certain online traffic, the country’s telecommunications regulator said Friday. In a letter to Rogers posted to its website Friday, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commissions said it is “of the belief” that the telecom giant is in breach of the rules governing how Internet Service Providers control the flow of traffic on their networks. “Within two weeks, I look forward to you either presenting us with a rebuttal of our evidence or providing us with a plan to come into compliance with the (Telecommunications) Act,” writes Andrea Rosen, CRTC’s chief compliance and enforcement officer. “Failure to provide a meaningful rebuttal or an effective plan will result in my recommendation to Commissioners to hold a show-cause hearing.” http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/01/20/rogers-breaking-internet-rules-by-throttling-bandwidth-crtc/

So who realy protects the Canadian citizens from the too often bad, immoral  firms in reality, now  holding the much too many crooked   firms to accountiablity but if there is any justice  it takes years to do so.. and for decades then not much good  tends to happen ..

OPPOSE THE PRICE INCREASES, LACK OF COMPETITION

Get ready for price increases, more bureaucratic red tape, and disrespectful customer service.

We have reports that the Big Three cell phone giants (who control roughly 94% of the market) are trying to trick the government into shutting out independent competitors. Some of them are going so far as to use high-priced lobbyists and a fake grassroots campaign1.

If the Big Three succeed, they will:

  • SqueezeCanadians into tighter contracts, with disrespectful customer service.
  • Squeezemore money out of your wallet every single month.
  • Squeeze independent providers out of the cell phone market.

In short, they will be the only game in town, and that means you and I will pay more for our cell phones. It will lock Canada behind the rest of the world on mobile communications, cripple essential innovation, limit social progress, and drain your wallet every month.

Sign the Stop The Squeeze petition before it’s too late!

Canadians already pay some of the highest cell phone fees in the free world2. This is a gut check for Canada. Will we let price-gouging big telecom companies squeeze every last penny out of our wallets before we stand up for ourselves? Will we let them slow-walk our economy into disaster?

 

We’ve heard that the Industry Minister is about to make a decision that could rubber stamp this cell phone nightmare into reality. Please join Canadians from across the country in signing this urgent petition to send him a message.

Let’s not put up with this anymore.

Once again the Big firms like Bell tend not to respect the laws..

 

Rogers has promised to stop throttling internet traffic on its network by the end of this year, in response to an investigation by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/story/2012/02/03/tech-rogers-throttling.html

Rogers has promised to stop “throttling” internet traffic on its network by the end of this year, IF YOU BELEIVE THESE CONTINUAL LIARS WHO LIED THEY WERE NOT THROTTLING ALREADY.. AND ROGERS IS NOT T MUCH BETTER THAN BIG BAD BELL..

 

Bell Canada and the Evenko promotion company could face fines for violating lobbying rules while they negotiated for the rights to the city’s proposed $400 million arena. Quebec’s lobbying commissioner, Francois Casgrain, ruled this week that the two companies failed to register as lobbyists prior to the start of talks.  The contract eventually went to Quebecor Inc., owner of QMI Agency and the Sun Media chain. http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Hockey/2011/12/22/19158326.html
