The RCMP -Before & After

BAD RCMP (14)
Before – The Propaganda, the spin
.
Peacekeepers prepare for deployment to Haiti.  RCMP officer go to  Haiti for a nine-month tour helping to train the national police force as part of a United Nations mission.  “These men and women have left the comfort of their homes and families to dedicate themselves to providing a better future to one of the poorest countries in this hemisphere.”  RCMP officers are  part of the 82-officer contingent deployed under UN command in Haiti.
.
After – The reality
.
2 Cdn cops accused of sex abuse during UN missions; 1 fathered child  Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale asked the RCMP, which manages foreign deployment of Canadian officers from two dozen services across the country to deal with it  RCMP policy bans any kind of sexual relations between deployed officers and citizens of mission countries,  The Canadian officer was found after a 55-day investigation to have fathered a child, was pulled back from the country involved, and suspended for nine days. What a joke..
.
“The secretary-general remains distressed by continuing instances of sexual exploitation and abuse but resolute in ensuring ever more effective means to prevent and address the profound betrayal through such acts by United Nations personnel against the people they are charged with protecting,” the UN report states and special measures for citizens protection from sexual exploitation and sexual abuse by soldiers and police personnel serving as peacekeepers taken UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
.
The Past
.
Alleged victim testifies in RCMP sex-assault trial A Yukon Supreme Court judge has heard testimony from a woman who claims two off-duty RCMP officers raped her a year ago. The woman, who cannot be identified under a publication ban, has testified that constables Graham Belak, 30, and Shawn McLaughlin, 33, sexually assaulted her in the early-morning hours of March 8, 2009, in the southern Yukon town of Watson Lake. Belak and McLaughlin were both suspended from the RCMP with pay after the charges were laid. They have since moved out of Watson Lake, as has the woman. … the woman said she met the off-duty officers at a house party. The three went back to Belak’s house, where, the woman alleged, McLaughlin held her down on the floor while Belak raped her. The woman said she could not move or speak during the alleged assault and that she blacked out a couple of times before she woke up around 6 a.m. to find she was naked from the waist down

CBC News REPORTS THAT  the high-profile Mountie who first spoke out against sexual harassment in the national police force is suing her employer, alleging years of “persistent and ongoing” sexual harassment and bullying.  In a notice of claim obtained by CBC News Wednesday, Cpl. Catherine Galliford alleges she was sexually assaulted, harassed and bullied during her 16 years on the force.

A pair of basement-dwelling, recovering drug addicts with few resources, Nuttall and Korody were found guilty of terrorism-related crimes by a B.C. Supreme Court jury last year. No convictions have been entered, because their defence lawyers claim the pair was entrapped, that authorities seized on the couple unfairly, pulling them into a police-contrived plot to detonate three homemade pressure cooker bombs at the B.C. legislature on Canada Day, 2013 .    .The RCMP spent just over $900,000 in overtime pay over the course of a five-month undercover operation that led to the arrests of two terrorism suspects in British Columbia. The RCMP declined comment on its anti-terrorism operations.

The RCMP fails in all it does again..
A $16-million RCMP project to help keep dangerous refugees out of Canada has turned out to be an expensive security flop. An internal evaluation says the screening project delivered information too late, strayed beyond its mandate, and in the end did almost nothing to catch refugees who might be linked to criminal or terrorist groups.Meanwhile, 30 Mounties were tied up for four years on duties that did little to enhance Canada’s security.Under the pilot project, the RCMP vetted potential refugees already in Canada — the names were provided by the Canada Border Services Agency — by checking domestic police databases for links to criminal or terrorist organizations, among other things.But the auditors found a raft of problems:The cost per screening skyrocketed from a planned $425 to $1,026, on average.The RCMP delivered screening checks to the border agency too late about a third of the time, rendering them useless The RCMP reported only 85 of 4,085 names as potential problem refugees,the RCMP’s work over four years likely had no bearing on the vetting carried out by border agency officers

Racism in Canada

racism (1)

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

RACIAL CRIME.jpg

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

.

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

racism (2)

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

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

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

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

Infections- old problems in Hospitals

Too many people  are too indifferent cause they falsely do think it is someone else job to deal with it.

HEALTHCARE (1)

The University of Regina is warning about an increase in gastrointestinal illnesses, often associated with food poisonings, dirty unwashed hands,  and very contagious next,  on campus. The university said Friday it is taking the matter seriously and working with the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region in light of the increase in cases. Extra cleaning by housekeeping and custodial staff is underway around campus to stop the illness from spreading. People who have experienced nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and headaches are being asked to stay away from public places for 48 hours after their symptoms have cleared. For people working where food is served, they are asked to stay home for 72 hours after recovering from symptoms.

.

Gastritis means inflammation of mucus lining of the stomach.
.

Gastritis is a common medical problem. Up to 10% of people who come to a hospital emergency department with abdominal pain have gastritis and yet most hospitals still tend to respond very poorly to it. Why?

.

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

hospital-deaths

A hospital emergency room might not be the best place for the sick  and elderly. The risk of acute infection – mostly respiratory and gastrointestinal viruses – following a trip to the emergency room is three times higher among the  elderly.. Long-term care patients who spent a few hours in an emergency facility were  more likely to get sick in two to seven days after returning to their nursing  homes.

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

.

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

.

It is also very unacceptable that the Canadian federal government is so readily to take credit for any of it’s programs but it falsely passes the buck when it has to be held accountable especially for medical inadequacies, or  the police inadequacies too.

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

Which now reminds  me when was the last time actually that a medical administrator,  doctor, nurse, hospital worker was charged with criminal abuse of a sick person too?

MOST DRINKERS ARE LIARS

Most ostrich alcoholic  drinkers rarely admit they are alcoholics , that they are heavy drinkers or that they will suffer any negatives side effects such as cancer due to their drinking. In other words  Most ostrich alcoholic  drinkers are liars.

ALCOHOL

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

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

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

DRUNKS

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

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

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

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

RCMP stil a bad force.

0canada-rcmp-security-2010-e

A Saskatchewan RCMP officer Const. Aiden Pratchett has been found guilty by the court of accessing and possessing child pornography.

.

OTTAWA — Canda’s public safety minister  Ralph Goodale says he has expressed outrage to the country’s top Mountie over the latest allegations of sexual harassment within the police force.  “All RCMP members, trainees and employees should feel safe and respected among their colleagues and superiors. Canadians expect professional and exemplary conduct from their national police service.” Ralph Goodale  also said that  he told RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson  that  he expects a comprehensive, transparent investigation, strong discipline, support for victims and a plan to end what he calls “this toxic workplace behaviour.” after the recent  News reported allegations of unwanted sexual touching, bullying and rampant nudity in the workplace at the explosives training unit of the Canadian Police College in Ottawa.   The RCMP  has STILL been beset by numerous cases of sexual harassment and bullying of both women and men. The RCMP is to insure still a healthy workplace free from harassment and sexual violence.

.

The  RCMP pattern of poor treatment of  RCMP employees was justifiable  to rattle public confidence and tarnish the force’s reputation as “Harassment has no place in the RCMP.” “This is the national police force, this is an icon of the nation and it’s got to be remedied very quickly to Canadian satisfaction.  Canadians will not tolerate any half measures in the response here,” Ralph Goodale said. “It’s got to stop. It’s got to be properly disciplined,” Goodale .

.

It is time for a massive transformation in the way the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) conducts its internal business, says the Mounted Police Professional Association (MPPAC), following the latest harassment allegations reported. This latest revelation is only the most recent in what appears to be an unending litany of bungled decision-making by those charged with the responsibility of care for who promised to root out the “dark-hearted” behaviour.. One has only to ask two very important questions:

  1. How has this culture of mismanagement within the RCMP been allowed to persist?
  2. Why do we rarely, if ever, hear about such truly egregious behaviour in municipal or provincial police departments?

rcmp

“Three years ago, the watchdog over the RCMP said the force must take “swift and effective action” on complaints of workplace bullying and harassment to restore the shaken confidence of both members and the public. It called for a more independent process, strict timelines for responding to accusations and force-wide training on the issue.”  The RCMP has already carried out three reviews of inappropriate behaviour at the police college, but complainants have said the RCMP investigators did not want to hear fulsome accounts.

In 2012, after a long investigation, the RCMP public complaints commission found rampant bullying in the force. It unearthed 718 complaints filed by employees between 2005 and 2011, and found almost half were from men.

rcmp taser (2)

 

 I too rightfuly  have 5 major complaints about the Police in Canada based on my decades of experiences:
1: THEY ARE OFTEN BULLIES,  LAZY, NO GOOD  PERSONS, BIG LIARS TO START OF WITH.
2: YOU CANNOT TRUST THEM ANYMORE THAN YOU CAN TRUST A WOLF AS A PET..
3: THEY ARE CERTAINLY INEFFICIENT, NOT COST EFFECTIVE AS WELL..

4: THEY SERVE THEIR POLITICAL MASTERS –  MAYORS, PREMIERS, PRIME MINISTERS  ESPECIALLY AND NOT THE CITIZENS,5: THEY MOSTLY SERVE THEMSELVES TOO..

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/12/19/the-still-too-often-useless-pretentious-police/

.

  Under the police act any professional policeman can be fired from his job for any of his bad behavior, even for anything he or she does after working hours, if his personal acts specially bring ill repute to the police force in general, and that includes adultery, alcoholism, drunken driving, abusive behavior now too.. and for sure should include stealing, expense account abuses, lying to his superiors and others.. for the RCMP as well.  We also still do  need better police managers, better Justice Ministers Canada wide too

Major price gougers are still at it

The mobile phone carriers make  money – lots and lots of money and it’s simply too easy for them to get more greedy with the easy money

CRTC rejects plea from small internet providers seeking wireless access.  CRTC shuts down appeal on wireless access filed by smaller ISPs Ruling means cellphone bills likely to remain high. The CRTC  has been facing the usual complaints about carrier collusion, as well as hearing arguments from smaller Internet service providers about a lack of competition in the wireless industry.

Do you think your cellphone bill is too high? it is about to get much higher. and it’s going to stay that way thanks to a CRTC decision that nixes the possibility of dozens of new wireless carriers springing up, consumer advocates say. Not the first time the CRTC is in bed with the Canada’s big communication industries

Canadians typically pay about $46 US per month for wireless service, or nearly double the $25 average among 22 developed nations, according to a 2015 report from the Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

Canadian wireless carriers are also exceptionally profitable, and ranked near the top of the survey in earnings.

BELL BAD

The previous Conservative government fought an at-times vocal war against the big carriers, and attempted to inject new competition into the market through special auctions of wireless spectrum. Up to the useless Lieberals  now to do something about continually increasing wireless bills — the Big Three all recently announced price hikes —  ” We need relief for consumers and businesses who are being hit hard,” CRTC’s Rejection Of Access To Big Telcos’ Networks ‘A Licence For Price-Gouging,’ OpenMedia Says “In effect, this amounts to a licence for price-gouging, as our telecom giants can continue to block new providers and charge Canadians exorbitant prices,”

 

CRTC is showing inconsistency in its approaches to wired broadband versus wireless. There is much bigger profit in the wireless sector..

BIGGEST JOKE OF THE YEAR – Police Services

Toronto looks to photo radar to cut cop costs , Toronto s MAYOR  John Tory asks Wynne to bring back photo-radar to catch speeders..  Toronto’s request comes as municipalities across the province are trying to rein in ballooning police budgets. HOW ABSURD, CUT POLICE COSTS, LAY OFF MORE USELESS COPS..

MONEY GRAB (2)

Answer the  question: Does photo radar save lives? Does it reduce collisions and increase safety? Or  does photo radar provide a steady stream of income for the municipalities who use it? Initially, photo radar was always going to be used for school and construction zones.  The one answer  that is without question.  It makes money – lots and lots of money and it’s simply too easy for municipalities to get drunk with easy money..

MONEY GRAB (1)

The oppressive 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, stealing the taxpayers money, a false hidden tax. Speeding is not the major cause of car accidents, related deaths but Drunk driving, impaired, drive, road rage and texting are. Photo Radars do not address this as well.

.

The Calgary  police vehicles photographed with a speed on green camera or red light camera are reviewed separately. The Police driver of the vehicle then fills out a Driver Response Form, where they must justify their actions unlike ordinary citizens. Lying justifications can include a pursuit of a suspect as well or  responding to emergency calls. “Everyone will be working off the same playbook,” cops only not citizens. “So, there will be consistent accountability as well as standards of Police discipline.” in theory not in practice all police officers are subject to the criminal code when appropriate.  They  mostly get a Paid vacation and no criminal charges – and the outcome is always the same. It sure is good to be a cop these days, they get a good pay, they get away with everything including speeding and drunk driving. Lucky ducks.

.

Citizens are still calling for change in   local speed traps. I think over the years they have just tacked on additional fines, or put up red light cameras, or doing one thing or another to try and generate revenue for their city.  Cities falsely are using traffic citations to fund city government.  Some cities it’s upwards of 8% to 10% of their revenue instead of .5 percent  is generated by fines and fees.    Many cities   have used fines and fees to fund a large portion of their budget, police budgets included . Too many Police Department  even have an illegal quota system that requires  officers to write three traffic tickets per day and make at least one arrest every two days. A  quota encourages officers to ticket people regardless of whether motorists’ behaviour is actually endangering the public or could be corrected with a warning. Traffic fines affect the poor and are ineffective against those they are to be really targeting, the rich. Most   cops saw their fellow residents less as citizens to protect than as “potential offenders and sources of revenue.”  Causing  “breakdown of trust” between people, police, governments and courts.  Missouri cities can no longer treat their citizens like ATMs,  as the state’s governor signed a bill capping how much money local governments can collect from traffic tickets and fines.” For people who have lived in these communities that fear they are going to be pulled over and harassed because that city needs money, that’s going to change,”
.
CALGARY an other  city gone mad with revenue generating traffic tickets. While Automobile traffic accidents are the number one cause of death for Americans, Canadians  ages 3 to 33 and while Automobile traffic accidents are the most common source of personal injury the reality is that   SPEEDING NOT THE MAIN CAUSE OF ACCIDENTS,  What is then the cause of major car accidents? Drunk driving, road rage, impaired driving, distracted while driving…. and what the revenue generating traffic division has not gone after all this mostly instead yet too? and why Not?
.
The insurance industry itself too  often sleeps with legislators, cops because it wants to make loads of money by finding out reasons not to pay out as well.. they support traffic tickets even though they do not reduce the car accidents significantly cause it gives more money to the insurance firms,  this is immoral gouging of consumers too often rather too.. now what about having some honest watchdogs and legislators rather. Go after the drunk drivers, raise the price of the booze firstly..
https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/speeding-is-not-the-major-cause-of-car-accidents-still/
.
GET THE POLICE TO BE BETTER EDUCATED AND HAVE THEM LEARN THE FACTS AS TO THE MAIN CAUSES OF TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS, AND AS TO WHO THE MAJOR REAL CRIMMINALS NOW ARE AS WELL.  AND IT IS NOT MERELY THE ORDINARY  PERSONS WHO DRIVES A LITTLE BIT TOO FAST.. IT IS OK FOR COPS TO LIKE TO DRIVE FAST AND TO LOVE HOT CARS EHH

COPS

.
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..
 .
Wrongful inactions, Cover ups, False denial of bad politicians, bad cops, bad persons, false pastors, false priests are much too common in Canada too.
.

David McQueen, 53, was suffering from depression, was killed  in an armed Calgary police standoff in northwest Calgary after police were called after shots were being fired indiscriminately from the home, including one that struck a Calgary Transit bus and nearly hit the driver.McQueen, who got around in a wheelchair after becoming paralyzed in a diving accident in the early 1990s, was deeply unhappy with the healthcare system, the police and the government, whom he blamed for not giving him the help he needed, which he detailed in his Facebook posts. So the police officers and 911 dispatchers will receive enhanced training on interacting with people in crisis, particularly those with mental illness

.

The Mental Health Police Advisory Committee was formed and is currently working on developing a “comprehensive, standardized police mental health training model for Alberta,” said provincial spokeswoman Lisa Shankaruk.That includes ensuring police officers’ mental health is a priority, developing a two-day training model where officers can receive training and resources from experts, and building relationships with partner agencies.  So the Police officers and 911 dispatchers will receive enhanced training on interacting with people in crisis, particularly those with mental illness .You are dumb if you think a two day course or a course will change any bad cop.. dismissal is rather needed.

CALGARY POLICE (4)

According to the police anyone who does not respect the Police is a mental case too.

.

 
CANMORE RCMP
.
It’s all very simple: obey the laws.  You broke the law, accept the consequences, and if that hypocritical, absurd, extreme statement was the reality, the truth, everyone would next be in jail, all of the politicians, civil and public servants, cops firstly..
.ALBERTA POLICE  .
.
A Calgary police officer CPS constable Stephen Baker. who had a patrol rifle stolen from his car last year “will not be charged criminally in connection with the case,”  The officer went to a restaurant on Crowfoot Terrace N.W. and left the rifle in his personal vehicle inside a locked hard cover carrying case. Inside the case there were also two magazines containing 28 rounds each. He had been taking the rifle home  while off duty ,” The Calgary officer was in violation of the Police’s own rules…he had no business removing the gun from the station gets off scott free… The justice  finding reinforces the widely-held belief that police forces are FULL OF CORRUPTION and COVER UPS. but what else di did we expect? That’s it!….  The Police keep eroding the public confidence in police services with one law for the citizens , another for cops.  This case underscores the corruption of the Canadian legal system. Anyone else would have been criminally charged.

.

The Public remains generally skeptical about police investigating other police. Still an arm’s length investigation takes a step towards correcting the perception that there is a bias in favour of police in such investigations, all such investigations will have to be overseen by a civilian body, as recommended. We pay the police to handle all matters in a professional manner firstly.   And no more  . “No paid vacations”  for the cops awaiting trials..  All it takes for the bad guys to continue to do bad things is for the others wrongfully  to do nothing about it.  

    https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2015/04/22/one-of-the-most-read-topics-here-is-the-subject-of-bad-police-officers-in-Canada/

.

.
Canada wide the hiring of and the continued employment of bad police officers with records bearing patterns of even alleged violent misconduct, brutality, falsely signifies a high level of tolerance for corruption and brutality in the forces. These patterns tell you that you have bad orchards, not just a bad apple. It’s difficult to change institutions, as they are set in their bad ways. Police are still out there doing the same bad things and so are their supervisors, politicans,  attorneys and judges. “How has anything changed?” All government officials  do fail to deal with the much needed police reforms.

By Graeme MacKay, The Hamilton Spectator – Saturday, December 14, 2013Hamilton police arrest video goes viralA citizen’s video of Hamilton police subduing a screaming female suspect, while using minimal force, has gone lightly viral, garnering hundreds of thousands of views since being posted Wednesday.”Honest Cops” was posted on You Tube and then linked to a popular reposting site. YouTube video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f23CPcTdY2M&feature=youtu.beIt quickly sparked thousands of comments and was closing in on 400,000 views by Thursday night.In the nearly 8-minute-long video, shot outside The Source store on Mohawk Road near Upper Gage, Hamilton constables Mark Morelli and Chantelle Wilson are shown first subduing and then arresting an out-of-control suspect in what police say was “a domestic related” incident. The arrest took place Sunday.The woman can be heard screaming and seen thrashing about on the sidewalk in front of the store, ignoring Morelli and Wilson’s commands to stop resisting and to put her hands behind her back. Seemingly hysterical, she claims “I can’t breathe” repeatedly, and complains that her chin is cut and she’s lost a tooth.For several minutes the officers struggle to control and cuff her and take her to the waiting patrol car. They treat her sternly, but with evident restraint, employing force only to contain her, not hurt her. Eventually Wilson and Morelli succeed in placing the 21-year-old Hamilton resident in the waiting cruiser.During the arrest and afterwards Morelli, aware they are being videotaped, attempts to answer the complaints of the videographer and other bystanders, explaining what they are doing and what the law permits them to do.”You can’t do that … she’s only a weak girl” the videographer admonishes the officers repeatedly as they struggle to cuff the woman.”I’ll explain it to you in a second,” Morelli says, holding up one hand in a “wait there” gesture.True to his word when the woman is finally securely in the rear seat of the cruiser, he catches his wind and proceeds to explain the law and the use of force choices they made during the arrest.Hamilton media relations officer Debbie McGreal-Dinning would offer no information on the arrest, citing the service’s policies against commenting on ‘domestic incidents.’ (Source: Hamilton Spectator)

Your Internet provider could be short-changing you

rcmp ()

In the last year 2/3 of users complained about the internet in Canada, even that it  is too costly, Bell got the highest number of complaints.

.

We all should be really concerned now whether Internet service providers  such as Bell, Verizon are misleading customers with slower-than-advertised speeds.  Your  Internet provider could be mostly  short-changing  You, consumers by charging them for faster broadband speeds and failing to deliver the speeds being advertised. Now  each company should  provide copies of all the disclosures they have made to customers, as well as copies of any testing they may have done to study their Internet speeds. We deserve the Internet speeds they pay for. But, it turns out, too  many of us may be paying for one thing, and getting another. It seems they all still lie, are guilty of false, misleading advertisements. Most  broadband providers claiming to offer super-fast Internet connections may be rather delivering service that is slower than advertised.  It is immoral  that the broadband speeds that you pay for are so unsubstantiated  in reality. 

THERE ARE TOO MANY PIGS IN THE INTERNET, CELL PHONE PARLOUR STILL

BELL HAS TO CAP IT’S  INTERNET CUSTOMERS’ USAGES, DOWNLOADS AND  OFTEN TOO, TO MAKE THE ROOM FOR THE WIRELESS PHONES AS WELL . BELL REALLY DOES NOT HAVE EXISTING ADEQUATE CAPACITY FOR BOTH, NOT EVEN FOR THE HIGH SPEED INTERNET SERVICES IN ALL AREAS OF CANADA. IT IS CLEARLY TOO CHEAP TO SPEND CAPITAL TO DO THIS ?

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/05/21/bell-throttles-internet-speeds/

Consumers are being caught in the middle of greedy telecomm companies.. It’s the Telcomm companies who have rooked us all and laughing all the way the bank.

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/06/23/can-bell-do-its-job-and-provide-me-now-their-proper-services/

 WHEN IT NOW COMES TO THE ISP, INTERNET PRICING THERE FIRSTLY ARE STILL NO VIABLE ARGUMENTS, OR PROOF THAT THE OVERALL NETWORKING SYSTEM CAPACITIES ARE BEING EVEN NOW OVER BURDENED BY A FEW PERSONS, HEAVY USERS FOR RATHER SOLELY THE MAIN UNDENIABLE PROBLEM IS THAT TELECOMMUNICATION GIANTS FIRMS THEMSELVES HAVE TOO OFTEN MISLED, DO MISLEAD THE PUBLIC AS TO THE DEGREE OF THEIR ACTUAL SYSTEM CAPABILITIES, SPEEDS AND EVEN THE RELIABILITY OF THEIR SERVICES NOW AS WELL AS I HAVE EVEN DETAILED THIS FOR YEARS NOW TOO.

the 10 Commandments are still applicable today for all, corporations and business persons included

Bell Canada  to pay a penalty of $10 million for making misleading advertising claims

Bell, Shaw and Rogers still can’t seem to provide good customer services! why?  It is basically cause they still do not care for the customers as they still are too greedy solely for the customer’s  money..

The top 3 “Canada’s Worst Cell Phone Bill” belong to Bell, Rogers, Virgin and next no matter how their spin  doctors lie about it, make false promises to change it they all are still bad in reality.

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/03/23/%e2%80%9ccanada%e2%80%99s-worst-cell-phone-bill%e2%80%9d/

A  probe should also be focused on so-called interconnection arrangements, or contractual deals that Internet service providers strike with other networks for the mutual exchange of data. customers paying a premium for higher speeds may be experiencing a disruption in their service thanks to technical problems and business disputes over the interconnection agreements.  The  Internet service provider interconnection has a substantial impact on consumer Internet performance – sometimes too  severely. It should also review  the actual speeds delivered  to consumers over “the last mile,” a term that refers to the point where a telecommunication chain reaches a retail consumer’s devices.

The  customers who are paying a premium fee for higher internet speeds could be experiencing a disruption to their service due to technical issues brought about by business disputes in these interconnection deals. According to a study conducted last year [PDF] by the Measurement Lab Consortium (M-Lab), customers can suffer from slow internet speeds because of these relationships. There is a strong “possibility that interconnection arrangements may in some instances render irrelevant any benefit” of paying for a “premium” option

Bell it is a poorly regulated monopoly ..

BELL or BCE HAS SADLY NOW BEEN GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER.. WITH MUCH TOO MUCH FALSE ADVERTISING, CONSUMER ABUSES, PRICE GOUGING, POOR SUPPORT SERVICES…. ANY DOUBTS AS TO HOW BAD BELL IS.. NOTICE THAT MY BELL POSTING TEND TO SAY IN THE TOP TEN OF ALL MY SUBJECT POSTS.

Stephen Harper’s Undeniable Acts

stephen_harper

In 2006, Conservative Party leader Stephen Harper came to power on the promise of transparency, accountability,a better and more open, honest government following the bad Liberal government’s past sponsorship scandal, which involved the awarding of government contracts to Liberal-friendly advertising firms in the wake of the 1995 referendum on Quebec separation.

No such promises next were kept by Prime Minister Stephen Harper..Rather under Prime Minister Stephen Harper the flow of information has dried up, elected MPs have become mere votes to be counted and the upper chamber has been set alight by an expenses-and-ethics scandal

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has instituted unprecedented controls over the flow of public information, including requests under the federal Access-to-Information Act, the muzzling of government scientists and responses to requests from journalists seeking comment from the government

Prime Minister Stephen Harper turned Ottawa into an immoral lying Senate, Government, a partisan swamp and Prime Minister Stephen Harper has led the most secretive, divisive and hyper-partisan government in Canada’s history. Prime Minister Stephen Harper subordinates were just as bad as all the other parties too

July 2, 2015

Quebec Liberal leaders, a bad sense of what bad people are like. Why?

plq_logo_ Why is it now that the Quebec Liberal leaders, are known to associate with the really bad persons.

.

Lu Chan Khuong  had this year become the first elected female president of the  Quebec Bar Association  and she is also the partner of Marc Bellemare, former minister of justice under the Liberal government of Jean Charest.  The board of directors of the Quebec Bar asked the president, demanded her  to resign on Wednesday and suspended her after she refused  after was  reported she shoplifted jeans. In its statement, the board indicated that Khuong confirmed being the subject of a complaint for shoplifting in a store in Laval, and that her file was processed under the “program to deal non-judicially with certain criminal offences committed by adults” in 2014. The non-judicial handling of her  offence can be decided on by the Directeur des poursuites criminelles et pénales when the act is a minor offence that doesn’t pose a real threat to society. The decision is only taken when it has determined that the fault attributed to the offender is an offence that can be proven. Diverting the charges is often offered in exchange for community service.

.

59-year McGill University Health Centre CEO Arthur Porter, the former Canadian spy-agency head and McGill University hospital administrator  has died in a Panama   of cancer on Tuesday , where he was in jail fighting extradition to Canada to face fraud charges.  The Crown wants proof Arthur Porter died in Panama . At the peak of his power, Arthur Porter enjoyed the rarefied luxuries of a Caribbean villa and a chauffeur-driven Bentley, boasting of contacts with heads of state from around the world  — including no less than the present Premier of Quebec,Philippe Couillard .  The Quebec prosecutor handling the multi-million dollar fraud case involving Arthur Porter says she wants Quebec police to verify that he is actually dead, she wants to see official reports verifying accused fraudster’s death Tuesday. Two Quebec anti-corruption officers sent to Panama have been assured  Arthur Porter really is dead.  “The visual identification of the body of Arthur Porter turned out to be sufficient for us to formally confirm his death,” Just to be extra sure, however, UPAC investigators did take fingerprints from the deceased as well as DNA samples.  A week after Porter was first reported dead, of lung cancer in a Panama hospital, the legal case against him is now officially closed.

.

But  ” the investigation into the McGill University Health Centre bribery scandal will continue, and accusations still stand against Porter’s seven alleged accomplices. Porter, along with his right-hand man at the MUHC, Yanaï Elbaz, was accused of rigging the bidding process to build the $1.3-billion superhospital in exchange for some $22.5 million in bribes. Also accused are several executives from SNC-Lavalin, which “won” the contract, as well as those who allegedly laundered the money — like Porter’s widow, Pamela Porter, who pleaded guilty in December for her part in the scheme. So far, some $17.5 million in assets have been frozen.”

.

Arthur Porter  who so assiduously courted politicians —  including Philippe Couillard (when he served as health minister in the mid-2000s) — later became a political pariah after a warrant was issued for his arrest more than two years ago on corruption charges. Arthur Porter, M.D., also the former dismissed CEO of the Detroit Medical Center, Dr. Porter, whose management style had already raised questions during this job, at the Detroit Medical Centre, was later charged in one of the largest corruption and fraud investigations in Canadian history.  the  Police allege  Porter received $11.25 million in secret commissions for rigging the contract to build the new McGill University Health Centre superhospital in SNC-Lavalin’s favour.   The Crown alleges Porter received part of a $22.5-million payment from Montreal-based engineering giant SNC-Lavalin in order to fix the call for tenders to ensure the firm received the lucrative contract. Porter left the DMC to head McGill University Health Centre‘s hospital network, where he was administrator from 2004 to 2011. In late 2011.

.

Porter also quit the MUHC amid concerns he was involved in too many private business deals. He returned to the Bahamas, where he announced in January 2013 that he had lung cancer. Four months later, Porter and his wife were arrested by Interpol agents at Panama’s international airport on the MUHC warrants. Among Porter’s belongings was a passport from Sierra Leone which he claimed gave him diplomatic status.  In total, nine people were charged in the alleged MUHC scheme, including two other former MUHC executives and three ex-SNC-Lavalin ones. Porter was the only one not to appear in Quebec to formally answer to the charges. Porter moved to Nassau, Bahamas, just ahead of a lawsuit filed by McGill and charges by Quebec prosecutors of conspiracy, embezzlement, fraud against the government, breach of trust and related crimes related to the construction of a $1.3 billion “super hospital” in Montreal. Porter, a medical doctor and cancer specialist,   was arrested on an international warrant in Panama City in May 2013,  while in La Joya prison he was fighting extradition to Canada .

.

In the  Summer of 2005, Porter flies to Baltimore with Premier Jean Charest and Health Minister Philippe Couillard to persuade the Shriners at their annual convention to keep their pediatric orthopedic hospital in Montreal. Their gambit works and marks the beginning of a working relationship between Couillard and Porter.

.

Porter  founded a consulting company with Couillard in 2009, almost a year after Couillard left public office.

.

On  June 15:,  2009  Porter and Couillard were elected directors of mining company Canadian Royalties, almost a year after Couillard resigned as Quebec’s health minister and as a member of the National Assembly. The two sat on the board of Canadian Royalties until Dec. 16, 2009.

.

 

Quebec’s anti-corruption task force suspects Porter and four high-profile  executives involved in the construction of the McGill University Superhospital  were part of a massive fraud conspiracy.UPAC issued arrest warrants Wednesday morning for Arthur Porter, Pierre  Duhaime, Riadh Ben Aissa, Yanai Elbaz , Jeremy Morris. UPAC confirmed  Wednesday that Elbaz – the former associate director general of the MUHC – is in  custody and will be charged Thursday. Duhaime — the former CEO of SNC-Lavalin – will turn himself in to Surete du  Quebec headquarters Thursday morning, He has already been charged with fraud. Ben  Aissa — another former executive at SNC-Lavalin — has already been arrested  and questioned by police for his possible role in other plots. All five are wanted for fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, and related charges.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/02/27/high-profile-executives-involved-in-the-construction-of-the-mcgill-university-superhospital-are-charged/

.

Quebec’s police task force on corruption is probing the billion-dollar contract for McGill Montreal mega-hospital awarded to a consortium led by Montreal engineering giant SNC Lavalin Group Inc. SNC-led consortium had won the McGill University Health Centre contract. Police raid the McGill University Health Centre . Up until six months ago, the hospital project had been overseen by Riadh Ben Aissa, a former head of SNC’s construction division, and also a central figure in an ongoing scandal. One of SNC’s original subcontractors in the project was a company controlled by construction magnate Antonio (Tony) Accurso – a controversial figure who now is also facing fraud and corruption charges. The hospital deal was put together under the watch of the previous chief executive of the health centre, Arthur Porter who left his own job under a cloud late last year. Arthur Porter had been appointed chair of the federal government’s security-intelligence watchdog agency, when his African business dealings with an arms dealer were revealed. Dr. Porter stepped down from both jobs. The Quebec government has earmarked $2.35-billion for an effort to reconstruct Montreal hospitals, the lion’s share going to the McGill University Health Centre campus. “Quebec’s anti-corruption unit has put several high-profile figures in its crosshairs since being established last year. It has arrested construction magnates such as Mr. Accurso and Paolo Catania, as well as Frank Zampino, a former city councillor who was the right-hand man of Montreal Mayor Gérald Tremblay.”

.

Not much of a surprise? The tip of the iceberg is being revealed only as  the overall depth of corruption will take much more time apparently to uncover, corruptions that likley permeates the whole project. Birds of feathers tend to flock together. And no one should tell us that  these initial suspected persons, now  were even  just isolated individuals acting on their own without the vast help and knowledge of any others now too. Higher education never insures one’s good moral standings.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/26/mcgill-administrators-likley-run-their-hospitals-the-same-way/

Former CSIS watchdog Arthur Porter arrested in Panama .Arthur Porter, the well-connected oncologist and hospital administer whom Prime Minister Stephen Harper appointed three years ago to oversee Canada’s spy agency, was arrested with his wife in Panama on charges including fraud against the Quebec government relating to his alleged role in the handling of a $1.3-billion Montreal hospital construction and maintenance contract, awarded three years ago to scandal-plagued engineering giant SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. The head of Quebec’s anti-corruption task force made the announcement Monday evening. In a written statement, Robert Lafreniere said the arrest was conducted after an investigation — code name Project Lauréat — by the Sureté du Québec, the RCMP and the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol).Dr. Porter and his wife, Pamela Porter, are in police custody. Mrs. Porter is accused of handling the products of crime and con   Efforts are being made to extradite the couple to Canada, according to the statement.

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
Yes 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..
.
Too many persons really cannot face the reality there are things in their life that need serious, drastic changes. These people in denial are the ones who often need professional help for their own short comings, sickness. Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about their own unacceptable acts. Corruptions occurs now Not just in Churches, amongst the police, politicians, civil and public servants. These People in the state of false denials, clearly also who lie often, they do now also tend to have severe personal, mental disorders next even cause one tends to eventually believe next ones own lies as being the truth, and they can no  longer differentiate their own lies from reality, the truth. By their false denials Who is fooling whom? You cannot fool all the people all the time and now matter how smart you are there is still someone more wiser who can see the truth still too. . Narcissistic, selfish, self centered Mental Disorders too evident now even in many of the so called Professionals even bad pastors, leaders leads these persons to dwell in self-absorption, fantasy, illusion, where she or he has exaggerated claims to talents, importance, or specialness, manifesting evidence of a need for constant admiration from others, a lack of empathy for all others, persistent in this too, have rigid personality traits and coping styles, clearly inflexible, do show a hypersensitivity to any criticism , defeat or negative realities thus they rather are pathological in denial by the their falsity, contrived replacement of the truths which they still must face eventually . These SEVERE PERSONALITY disorders are generally personally ongoing too leading to more impaired social and/or occupational functioning and can make it difficult to pinpoint a clear dividing line between their pathology and their so called normality. Most of these people with their personality disorders may not perceive that there is anything wrong with their behavior and thus they are not motivated to change it. It is important to note that these personality disorders are considered to have their onset in late adolescence or early adulthood and they alone are responsible for it too.
.
Again false Denial, it is very   common when many an individual, even amongst so called professionals, even in pastors now included, are openly confronted with their own wrong doings, that they resort to a false denial. When confronted with the truth the denier they often respond with a similar personal counter attack remark as ”you are crazy”. “I reject your reality… and substitute my own.” Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about themselves still though. Sadly it is a negative natural human tendency to devolve into denial.” It’s not just a moral compass that’s lacking, but the ability to honest, or to stand apart. Denial often comes out of a false pride, a fear of being openly exposed as being wrong. Denial is a false convenient escape, excuse for inaction for persons now facing a situation that requires a decision or action that conflicts with his or her established past policy. Denial too often can be further disastrous upon themselves and others.. for denial is not seeing data at all or seeing it and coming to an erroneous conclusion within oneself. One’s false denial is often based on a false assumption of one’s past great success and often precedes their own severe personal failure next due to a personal disconnect with real life. Illustrated fully by the story of the Emperor with new clothes. .
.
False Denial (also called abnegation) is a often defense mechanism in which a person is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it instead, insisting that it is not true despite what may be overwhelming evidence, a mechanism of the immature mind that conflicts with the ability to learn from and cope with reality. The subject may now deny the reality of the unpleasant fact altogether (simple denial), admit the fact but deny its seriousness (minimization) or admit both the fact and seriousness but deny responsibility (transference). The concept of denial is particularly related to the denial of one’s addiction to alcohol for example, or to one slandering others, abusing them stealing, lying.. their denial or their minimization of their own wrong doings is the essential part of what enables them next to  continue his or her behavior in the face of evidence that, to an outsider, that is overwhelming. “The American Heart Association cites denial as a principal reason that treatment of a heart attack is delayed. Because the symptoms are so varied, and often have other potential explanations, the opportunity exists for the patient to deny the emergency, often with fatal consequences. It is common for patients to delay mammograms or other tests because of a fear of cancer, even though this is clearly maladaptive.”
.
Types of Denial include now Denial of fact: This form of denial is where someone avoids a fact by lying. This lying can take the form of an outright falsehood (commission), leaving out certain details in order to tailor a story (omission), This form of denial involves avoiding personal responsibility by blaming, minimizing or justifying. Denial of responsibility: Denial of impact: avoiding thinking about or understanding the harms their behavior have caused to themselves or others. Denial of awareness: they do not admit any previous awareness of the negative reality. Denial of cycle: Denial of cycle is where a person avoids looking at their decisions leading up to an event or does not consider their pattern of decision making and how harmful behavior is repeated. Denial of denial: This latter form of denial typically overlaps with all of the other forms of denial, but involves more self-delusion. People in a false denial are really nuts, delusional..
.
There are tools and practices that we can implement to overcome the psychological trap of anyone’s false denial. The Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.

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

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

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

.

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

.

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