What we can Learn from France

France_Flag

PARIS — France is ordering manufacturers to inform consumers how long they can expect their TV, cell phone or other appliance to last — before they buy it. A new French government decree is  aimed  at fighting so-called planned obsolescence. That is when companies falsely design strategies to limit the life span of appliances, so that consumers will have to replace them. The measure also now requires manufacturers to inform vendors how long spare parts for an appliance will continue to be produced. The vendor is then required to inform the buyer, in writing. Violators face up to 15,000 euros ($16,800) in fines. A similar French measure coming into effect next year will require manufacturers to replace or repair faulty appliances for free for the first two years after purchase.  and how about in Canada?

Cop charged:breach of trust, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to traffic a controlled substance,

canada-justice-13

VANCOUVER — Many years later the RCMP officer who stunned Robert Dziekanski with a Taser at Vancouver’s airport lied at a public inquiry into the Polish immigrant’s death, a judge ruled. Const. Kwesi Millington fired his Taser multiple times after he and three other officers were summoned to Vancouver’s airport in October 2007. Dziekanski, who spoke no English, had been throwing furniture in the international terminal.  Millington’s verdict marks the first time a judge has concluded that one of the officers lied. Another Mountie, Const. Bill Bentley, was acquitted in 2013, while two other cases have not yet concluded.  The Crown alleged the officers colluded on a story to tell homicide investigators and write in their police notes in an attempt to heighten the threat that Dziekianski posed. Prosecutors argued the officers’ statements and notes all contained similar errors, proving they worked together. The Crown further alleged the officers met in the Vancouver area in the days or weeks before testifying at the inquiry in early 2009 to plan their testimony. A witness, whose ex-husband is Bentley’s cousin, told the court the officers met at her home, but the defence presented telephone records, credit card receipts and other evidence to cast doubt on her testimony. The judge  noted that the officer’s errors all exaggerated the threat Dziekanski posed.

A Quebec  SQ officer is facing charges of falsifying evidence. Constable Sebastien Grenier was suspended with pay last April while police investigated allegations that the officer had handed out bogus speeding tickets in the Eastern Townships. Grenier will appear in court only on  March 27th. His status with the police force is expected to be re-evaluated in the coming days. Meanwhile he gets fully pay..

A constable with B.C.’s Abbotsford Police Department has been criminally charged and 16 other officers are under investigation for allegations related to the integrity of statements used in a number of criminal cases to obtain search warrants. Const. Christopher Nicholson has been charged with  breach of trust, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to traffic a controlled substance, the Office of the Police Complaints Commissioner (OPCC) said in a statement released Wednesday.  During the Vancouver Police Department investigation, it says it uncovered further allegations of misconduct against 16 other members of the APD and a total of 148 accusations of misconduct against seventeen members of the Abbotsford Police Department. The accusations include corrupt practice, deceit, and neglect of duty. The OPCC says it has not been able to adequately determine the extent to which prosecutions may have been compromised “due to the lack of adequate disclosure from the police. Deputy Police Complaint Commissioner Rollie Woods says the officers are accused of making up information to secure search warrants. “The concerns raised have an impact of the interplay between key institutional stakeholders within the criminal justice system which include the federal prosecution service, judicial officers and the police. Furthermore, what remains an active concern to the OPCC is the extent to which the search warrants in issue may have contributed to potentially unsafe prosecutions,” reads a statement from the office.

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

conser-1

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

.

There are many , many reasons for a start the Doctors and nurses who kill patients, neglect them do not face any negative consequences at all for a start.

.

I have had many American tell me in the US that we have a good Medical system because it is free.. Being free does not  insure a good medical care system if Doctors and Nurses are rarely supervised. The public-private Swiss health system comes first.

.

The Canadian  system also like the U.S. system does  sucks up loads of  money all without producing discernibly better outcomes.

.

In most categories, Canada comes between the middle and the bottom – except in spending, where Canada is in the upper third, per capital.

.

It is the  politicians crap that  Canada having the best Medicare system in the world.

.

” Among 11 countries, Canada ranks last or second-last in getting same- or next-day doctor appointments, finding after-hours care, waiting for more than two months for a specialist appointment or four months for elective surgery.” Getting to see God can be a real nightmare..

.

Canadian patients spend more time in Hospitals per stay, than anywhere else except Japan. Why?  There are too few doctors to look after the patients, the medical system relies on interns  in training and nurses mostly still for the average patient care. Having more beds will not help .

.

Governments, and Hospitals are working  next, now on kicking more people out of hospitals, to  get them out more quickly and still not rather insuring they get helped medically.

.

What does the public think of Medicare? You have to  firstly get admitted to the hospital to find out you are not getting the best care  there possible.

.

When people ask for  “fundamental changes,” what do they mean..  They firstly do want the bad doctors and bad nurses, bad  hospital administrators, fired, discharged not covered up over and over again..

.

The problem is there is not only a lack of accountabilty, but the money is not properly managed.. Ottawa transfers $32-billion a year to the provinces for health care,  but how well is it spent? Many useless  medical test are done in hospitals still as well.

.

So “Ottawa spends another $7.2-billion for specialized health care, including $2.5-billion for aboriginals, $1.1-billion for veterans, $571-million for the military and $614-million for the Public Health Agency. Ottawa also spends money to sponsor medical research.” So what?  Putting more money in pails full of holes is wasteful..

As if the oil downturn, recession is not enough for Alberta

alberta

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency confirmed on Friday that it had found a case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), also known as mad cow disease, in a beef cow in Alberta.  BSE — a progressive, fatal neurological disease — is believed to be spread when cattle eat protein rendered from the brains and spines of infected cattle or sheep. Canada banned that practice in 1997.  Exports of Canadian beef were repeatedly  badly hit in 2003 after the first case of BSE was found on a farm. A fresh discovery of BSE may close borders to Canadian beef and reduce the price of beef for Canadian Consumers again.

.

The  scenario that’s unfolded in Alberta in the past month is frightening .  The drop in oil prices has hit Alberta like a bomb. Few saw it coming.   A long-term over supply means “the new equilibrium price of oil will likely be much lower than over the past decade.”  So the news out of the oil towers in downtown Calgary, Edmonton gets worse every day. Everything from employment to local real estate markets are starting to  seriuosly suffer. Job losses in the Alberta oil patch have become almost daily events in oil patch and are even mounting  as the oil price collapse is pushing the past-vibrant Alberta economy into a dramatic downward spiral,  meaning more than 60,000 lost jobs . The Alberta  Government is facing $21-billion resource revenue shortfall over three years. Finance Minister, Robin Campbell, announced the upcoming budget will have a 9 per cent cut in program spending. In addition, the province will cut five per cent across the board, which will mean a $2.2-billion reduction in overall spending, year over year.  Likely nothing, including health care and education, is considered  untouchable.  “They’re destroying business confidence by threatening to tax anything that moves — tax on sugar, tax on gas, Alberta health-care premiums, and raising our 10-per-cent flat tax rate.”  Alberta’s premier Jim Prentice has said public-sector unions must do their part in light of low oil prices, as he called the present wages for teachers, nurses and other civil servants unsustainable. The cities of Calgary and Edmonton, both of which  depend on significant cash infusions from the province, will likely have to put their dreams on hold for a long while.The budget cuts trigger outrage in Alberta.  ” The news was reminiscent of the mid-1990s when then-premier Ralph Klein — faced with a crippling, $20-billion debt — gutted parts of the provincial civic service, eliminating thousands of jobs. Grants to schools, hospitals, universities and municipalities were frozen. ”  People in other parts of the country are saying  Albertans have not resided in real world for some time.  Only now are there concerns about the Alberta’s poor as the spending reductions could have severe consequences for family, child and disability agencies that rely on government grants to pay staff and administer social services. The pain felt elsewhere in Canada  now in Alberta is real.

.

Never mind what the spin doctors will say about Alberta’s future, the  present home of Canada’s prime Mister Stephen Harper  as the present reality is  that Alberta is mainly an  oil and gas, tourists, dependent on its resource sector and  the province has long relied on both the economic activity and the direct revenue from royalties and land sales to underpin government budgets but now this bubble has burst again,  the Oil’s price plunge means a bumpy ride in  all  sales, the economy in Alberta.   ‘Oil Prices are not going to bounce back:’ Prentice gloomy about quick oil recovery. Oil’s price collapse sends shiver across Alberta’s real estate market. Home prices fall also  in Calgary as real estate chill deepens.  Sales are down 7.5 per cent versus a year ago, while the  new listings have   “gushed” 42 per cent higher.  The Bank of Canada’s decision this week to slash its trend-setting interest rate a quarter of a percentage point to 0.75 per cent will not help to pay the high home mortgages many have there. You also cannot borrow more money, or buy more when facing a job cut.  School fees in Alberta triple in five years.   The out-of-pocket cost of sending a child to public schools in Alberta nearly tripled in five years as boards became increasingly dependent on fees to meet their budgets, and the Edmonton police are focusing more energy on   property crimes which  have climbed significantly. There have been 23 break and enters, 28 thefts from vehicles, and 20 thefts of vehicles in the area during the first few weeks of 2015. That is double number of property crimes the neighbourhood experienced at the same time in 2014 .  “The fact that these school fees have increased during a period when this province had record revenues is just not fair to the average Alberta family,”

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2015/01/24/once-again-alberta-heads-into-a-depression/

.

Alberta’s surprise recessions are 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.  In reality History repeats itself.. remember the 1980’s. 2009-10 when in Alberta 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. 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.

The OIL PRICE DROPS impacts are spreading across the economy, which the arrogant government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper has held up as being a huge beneficiary of energy-sector expansion. Alberta and other provinces reaped major financial rewards as the industry plowed tens of billions of dollars into operations and hired armies of workers as oil boomed. No more!  “The oil downturn is also complicating Ottawa’s finances as the federal government prepares a pre-election budget , the price collapse prompted the government to delay its 2015 budget. The Finance Minister Joe Oliver’s Nov. 12 economic update projected a $1.9-billion (Canadian) surplus for the coming year based on an assumption of $81 (U.S.) oil. Since then, the Bank of Canada has opted to use $55 oil for its forecasts, and earlier economic projections of a significant rebound in prices this year have evaporated in recent weeks.” The country’s largest private mortgage insurer Genworth MI Canada Inc.,  says it expects rising losses on its portfolio of Alberta mortgages this year.  The Alberta mortgages in the last two years,  borrowers tended to have relatively high loan-to-value ratio, with equity averaging just 16 per cent in 2013 and 9 per cent in 2014, due to slow home price appreciation and borrowers paying off less of the principal on their mortgages in those years, the company had  said. Genworth Canada’s own stock has plummeted 25 per cent since November.

IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE THAT THE BAD GUYS DO NOT LIKE THE TABLE TURNED AGAINST THEM.. TO BAD FOR THEM.. I LIVED IN ALBERTA FOR 15 YEARS AND I SAW THAT THEY THEY HAD FALSELY REFUSED TO SEE THE HAND WRITING ON THE WALL.. TOO OFTEN TOO.

.

(Mat 7:3 KJV)  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5  Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

.

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

.

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

.

In the last 10 years, crime rates have fallen roughly 27 per cent but costs have risen 44 per cent in policing and 33 per cent in corrections. Our prisoner population has managed to stay constant.  Is that a paradox? Or is that because those in the system are smart enough to ensure they all keep working and our prisons remain full, even though there are far fewer crimes. Also the report notes “the most embarrassing lacunae in Canadian data” is the lack of useful information on our courts — “we have no systemic way of assessing whether the courts are getting more or less effective in dealing with the cases that they see, let alone understanding how much as a society we are paying. For a developed nation, this is disappointing to say the least … How bad is it?”  It’s appalling — even mischief cases take more than half a year on average to process.  First Nations represent about four per cent of the population but more and more of them are being imprisoned — from 13 per cent of the offenders in custody in 1998 to 20 per cent a decade later. In Saskatchewan, 80 per cent of inmates are native. In Manitoba it’s 70 per cent, in (Racists) Alberta 40 per cent.In those three provinces, aboriginal people also are least likely to be given probation or conditional sentences. That is a major scandal that demands investigation..  http://www.vancouversun.com/Mulgrew+Cost+crime+rises+crime+rate+falls/10296393/story.html
.

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

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.

Canada’s revenue agency is not just a tax collector, but also as a criminal investigator.

MESSIANCS

 

If you are worried about the Canadian government keeping a secret file on you, stop worrying it has been doing that for decades by various means, in various places. Such as the Post Office.

.

OTTAWA — The federal revenue agency can now hand the police possible evidence of serious crime — including terrorist activity — that it happens to come across while reviewing taxpayer files. The Canada Revenue Agency gained the little-noticed new authority, which does not require a judicial warrant, through an amendment tucked into the government’s most recent omnibus budget bill. Previously, confidentiality provisions in the law prevented the agency from handing information about suspected wrongdoing, on its own initiative, to law enforcement. The exception was information that pointed to tax-related crimes.  The new provisions apply to offences including breaking and entering, vehicle theft, arson, corruption and kidnapping. They also allow authorities to pass along information about any offence with a minimum prison term, or one with a maximum sentence of 14 years.The list of offences is disturbingly broad and amounts to a fundamental change in allowing the agency to hand information to police without a court-ordered warrant — even when the alleged crimes have nothing to do with taxes

If you are worried about Revenue Canada’s effectiveness too, stop here too, they are not even capable to catch most of the people working under the table and not paying taxes even.

.

Everyone can and should be held accountable even for their acts and their words now too.. no matter who you are too.  Accountability needs to start with the politicians, civil and public servants firstly and not just the ordinary folks..  And do not forget the Federal Conservatives. You know, the people who had  claimed many years ago they were going to clean up Ottawa and end entitlements and misspending and were going to show us all a better way.. and now next  they did the same bad thing as all the others.. they even falsely still refuse to be accountiable for their expense accounts .. they clearly also  now have  much too many unacceptable liars still. We all tend to know by now that the crooks on their own do falsely  deny any guilt or wrong doings now  too. Water unrestrained runs down hill, so do self supervised Professionals, Doctors, Nurses, Cops, Mayors, Civil and Public Servants, RCMP,  Business persons  now too..  and self supervision does not work as  it tends to be only masturbation and not the real thing still too. The existing justice system has been the subject of persistent criticism from those who charge  that even the police are biased in favour of their fellow officers, establishment  and there is no  guarantee of impartiality, fairness. Civil liberty groups, student federations and social, human rights  activists have been rightfully calling even for an open,  full public inquiry into what they call excessive force against the Quebec Students by the police last spring and summer. An estimated 3,000 people were arrested or abused  during more than four months of widespread Quebec protests, social unrest. The other unacceptable Malaise of sweeping refuse, shit under the rug.. the civil servant managers serious, personal failure to deal with ther unacceptable, crooked, dishonest, thieving subordinates rather than disposing of them, firing them, putting then into the garbage bins is still needed as some people only learn to do good the hard way, when they feel real negative repercussions. I strongly suggest we get rid of these bad managers, firstly, immediately, all bad cops included..

Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird

wolves in sheep clothing

I was reading the many New media comments about John Baird is unexpectedly  leaving federal politics they sounded mostly like obituaries where you do not say anything bad, negative about the dead. Baird might be a rat leaving a sinking ship?

.

Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird is unexpectedly  leaving federal politics. Sources close to him with direct knowledge of his plans say they expect Mr. Baird to resign his cabinet seat on Tuesday and soon step down as MP for his Ottawa West-Nepean riding. Mr. Baird, 45, is  one of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s   senior  political lieutenants  but undeniably still  Employment Minister Jason Kenney is arguably the cabinet minister with one of the biggest responsibilities on his plate right now.. Sources say the veteran politician wants to start a new career in the private sector. “The minister is looking to turn the page on 20 years of public service and like anyone in public office is looking for new opportunities,” a source close to the minister said.” Really? sounds like there is much more to it..  “After spending the past few years listening to Mr. Baird going out of his way to legitimize the banality and brutality of a 50-year-old Israeli occupation…  He should first apologize to his own citizenry, many of whom are God-loving Jews, Christians and Muslims who would never condone nor cheer for an Israeli government that stretches support to Israeli settlers who attack churches and mosques. Mr. Baird should apologize for his active encouragement of Israel’s brute and ugly occupation and its apartheid policies. He should apologize for failing to promote those things Canadians hold dear such as freedom, dignity and human rights and for replacing those ideals with an outspoken support of Israel’s clear and undisputed violations of international law. Saeb Erekat, Palestinian chief negotiator and a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization Executive Committee.

 http://www.theglobeandmail.com/globe-debate/it-is-john-baird-who-needs-to-apologize-to-the-palestinian-people/article22488148/

.

France doesn’t agree with Canada’s strong support of Israel in its conflict with the Palestinians.  In  Baird’s recent visit to Ramallah  protesters pelted his motorcade with eggs and shoes. The Palestinian protesters also held signs reading: ”Baird, you are not welcome in Palestine” and ”Baird, Jerusalem is our capital.” ”This person backs up the Zionist movement,” . ”This person diminishes the rights of our people, takes part and backs up building of settlements. We tell him that he’s not welcome.” Protester Abdullah Abu-Rahmeh said

.

Canada once had respect of Israel and Palestine:

.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the world’s major sources of instability.
1- Israel currently has 262 Jewish-only settlements and ‘outposts’ built on confiscated Palestinian land. Palestinians do not have any settlements on Israeli land.
2- The Israeli unemployment rate is 5.8%, while the Palestinian unemployment in the West Bank is 22.5% and 41% in Gaza.
3- 133 Israeli children have been killed by Palestinians and 2,060 Palestinian children have been killed by Israelis since September 29, 2000
4 -1,195 Israelis and at least 9,826 Palestinians have been killed since September 29, 2000.

OTTAWA (Reuters) – The sudden resignation of Canada’s foreign minister John Baird has revealed strains inside the ruling Conservatives and complicates their bid to extend a decade in power in elections this October… insiders said Baird had become increasingly frustrated with officials in Harper’s office, both on major issues and also over what he saw as excessive micro-management. Baird, the sources said, unsuccessfully pushed for tougher measures against Moscow last year. He was also upset that Harper’s office would not allow him to use government jets more often when on official travel. Baird it a  seems  had concluded the low-tax tough-on-crime Conservatives did not have a good chance of winning another majority in the next election.”It’s better to leave now rather than being one of 35 ex-cabinet ministers suddenly seeking a job after the election,” said one of the people, who declined to be named citing the sensitivity of the matter. Baird’s loss is a political and strategic setback that comes at a critical time.

.

Face it
(Eccl 1:9 KJV)  The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
(Eccl 1:14 KJV)  I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
(Eccl 3:16 KJV)  And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.
(Eccl 4:1 KJV)  So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.
(Eccl 5:13 KJV)  There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt.
(Eccl 9:3 KJV)  This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all: yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead.
(Eccl 10:5 KJV)  There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceedeth from the ruler:
.
Israel “is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name, speaks the same language, that it did 3,000 years ago.” except now it does  not worship the same God for it rejected him, Jesus Christ and chose the coming Antichrist Yeshua instead

.

For his strong stands against countries with anti-gay laws, Baird earned the enmity of REAL Women of Canada, a socially conservative women’s group. In 2013, the group accused him of an “abuse of power” for imposing his own views on anti-gay legislation in Uganda, Kenya and Russia. “Mr. Baird’s actions are destructive to the conservative base in Canada and causing collateral damage to his party,” the group fumed in a statement.

.

Recently he was a false attack dog, for  prime minister Stephen Harper’s  pit-bull  in his  speaking his  nonsense against the Russian Takeover of  Crimea, the supposed Russia’s incursions into Ukraine, and was openly critical of the United Nations because it did not support  Israel.

.

John Baird  joined the Canadian government’s condemnation of the  “barbaric” attack on the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo magazine that left a dozen people dead. Canada stands united with France against acts of terrorism.  “We want to condemn in the strongest terms, this barbaric act. To see 12 people, including two or three law enforcement officials killed in downtown Paris is just horrific,” he said. “I immediately placed a call to my counterpart, to say that we stand in solidarity with the French people at this time.”

.

Baird has recently  been working to secure the release of an accused terrorist  Egyptian-Canadian Al-Jazeera journalist  Mohamed Fahmy from a Cairo, Egypt  prison. Fahmy, who was arrested in 2013 and has been in jail since was sentenced to at least seven years in prison on terrorism-related charges last year in a trial. He was  over their coverage of the violent crackdown on Islamist protests following the military overthrow of President Mohammed Morsi in 2013. Egyptian authorities accused him of providing a platform for Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood, now declared a terrorist organization.  The family of Mohamed Fahmy has confirmed that the Egyptian-Canadian journalist has given up his Egyptian citizenship in the hope that it will get him released from a Cairo prison. People with dual  citizens are basically non Canadians anyway. Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird has said  he is hopeful Fahmy will be released from jail soon? but gave no specific timing. He believed that Mr Fahmy, the news channel’s Cairo chief who recently gave up Egyptian citizenship, would be deported like his Australian colleague Peter Greste. But a retrial has thrown that into question. John Baird failed here too..

Blocked investigation into Alberta’s tailings ponds

oil-sands

Canada has blocked an investigation into Alberta’s tailings ponds by NAFTA’s environmental watchdog.

.

“It shows that the Canadian government is willing to circumvent institutions that make sure Canada upholds environmental laws.”

.

It’s the third time in a year Canada has successfully stopped NAFTA’s scrutiny of its environmental behaviour.

.

Two environmental groups and three private citizens had asked the commission to investigate whether tailings ponds were leaking into nearby rivers and creeks in northern Alberta.

.

In 2014, with Mexico’s support, it stopped investigations into polar bear protection and B.C. salmon farms.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/nafta-probe-of-alberta-s-tailings-ponds-blocked-by-canada-1.2935004

.

And “Canada, the oil sands’ poor image isn’t just a question of bad PR.  Anti-oil sands sentiment has made it nearly impossible to build the necessary pipeline connections producers need to get all that oil to market. TransCanada Corp.’s crossborder Keystone XL pipeline is in danger of being axed by U.S. President Barack Obama. The industry’s backup plan, Enbridge Inc.’s Northern Gateway pipeline to shipping terminals on the B.C. coast, has become bogged down in political and environmental controversy. Even TransCanada’s Energy East proposal, a sort of backup for the backup, has encountered unexpected political resistance in Ontario and Quebec—two provinces the diluted bitumen must transit through on its way to refineries in New Brunswick.”

.

” Alberta’s oilsands produce more greenhouse gas emissions than some European countries right now and will produce more than all of the world’s volcanoes in just 11 years if the pace of development continues, a new report says.  People will post 1001 excuses justifying this disaster.  http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2009/09/13/greenpeace-oilsands.html until it is too late to do anything about it..Remember Chernobyl” 
.

SADLY ECONOMICS DO CONTROL THE VIABILITY OF CANADA’S OIL SANDS PROJECTS.  Economics alone   SHOULD NOT now  control the direct oil sand extraction  process, engineering as well and also now not all firms are equally environmentally conscious, concerned so they all do now need to be better managed here, something that has falsely not been adequately done for sure so far.. and yes neither by the provincial or the federal governments HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB HERE. GREED AND PROFIT CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO OVER RULE SAFETY,  THE ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES, etc

free speech, inappropriate speech, hate speech and censorship

free speech
 .
There is difference between free speech, inappropriate speech, hate speech and censorship, unlawful use of authority, as we all can tend to know the Cops, Politicians, Pastors, Crooks, Muslims, Jews, Hindus etc. tend  too  like to censor falsely any speech that is negative about their acts, behavior, lies. Yes many persons falsely seek to demonize those with whom they disagree.
 .
Some recent legislation has targeted at the so-called “hate speech.” Seeking to relieve certain groups from psychological distress resulting from discriminatory communication, these laws limit the extent to which derogatory statements can be made regarding differences of race, sex, and religion, but just because I state some basic truths about specific groups and they falsely do not want to hear it, admit, have it known does not make my remarks a hate speech.
 .
Sadly the  Gays, Jews,  Muslims, and some others tend to define any negative criticisms of their behavior falsely as hate speech.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the world’s major sources of instability.
1- Israel currently has 262 Jewish-only settlements and ‘outposts’ built on confiscated Palestinian land. Palestinians do not have any settlements on Israeli land.
2- The Israeli unemployment rate is 5.8%, while the Palestinian unemployment in the West Bank is 22.5% and 41% in Gaza.
3- 133 Israeli children have been killed by Palestinians and 2,060 Palestinian children have been killed by Israelis since September 29, 2000
4 -1,195 Israelis and at least 9,826 Palestinians have been killed since September 29, 2000.

anti-semitism 4
.
Freedom of religion does not apply to Islam, cause it is a cult, it demands blind loyalty, obedience to it’s false teachings. The dividing line between extremism and civility, authoritarianism and democracy, today is increasingly drawn along this line: For lack of any coherent ideologies, many of today’s extremists are fuelled on pure demand for silent adulation and blind faith.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/04/24/should-we-deport-all-muslims-from-canada/

Hate speech2
.

Criticism of Israel is not anti-Semitic.

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/11/12/criticism-of-israel-is-not-anti-semitic/

.

FALSELY ACCORDING TO THE LYING JEWS THERE IS NO RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH IF YOU TELL A NEGaTIVE TRUTH ABOUT THE JEWS, Israel?  Hate speech today often  means anything the Jews firstly  hate to hear, especially the truth about themselves..
.
Now there is no such thing as free speech in the sense of unlimited speech.  Free speech is simply a useful term to focus the  attention on a particular form of appropriate  human interaction and the phrase is not meant to suggest that all speech should never be interfered with appropriately.
.
Still we have no fundamental human right not to be offended in public discourse .  The laws did not protect the dignity of the white supremacist deeply offended by the message of racial equality and de-segregation advocated by the civil rights movement in 1960s or the  Jews being exposed for abusing the  Palestinians, or Muslims falsely  forcing their faith falsely on others.
.
Freedom of speech and the right to be heard as well should be the rights of all of the citizens;  on the other hand, this freedom nor it; suppression  is not an absolute as  some persons falsely think that it is.  Some forms of speech are rightfully  thoroughly to be outlawed  such as lying, fraudulent advertising, child pornography, obscenity, fighting words, slander, help-wanted ads that discriminate on the basis of race, words used in a criminal transaction, unlicensed broadcasts, libel, speech that infringes a copyright, and unauthorized disclosure of some data .   Governments may regulate, or censor speech if it  a viable public concern, or threatens national safety.
.
Dealing with supposedly Hate speech alone  are ineffective; they simply do not work, as the  simultaneously do not address the central motives that drive hate speech. More valid action is required here. Some advocates of more hate speech codes, due to the reality the emotional pains that some  speech sometimes causes, are willing to risk denying citizens of rights in order to spare the objective individuals from psychological discomfort . Neglects the basic reason  that the specific  minority groups and those wanting hate speech codes ultimately hope to gain: a false  actual “change in public opinion”, not a “change of heart” in which individuals forcefully  suppress,  give up their rightful views. This is still a false denial of  someone’s rights to speak and to be hard. It doesn’t matter what sensitivities were hurt. It doesn’t matter what deity, religion, or prophet was lampooned. No one has the right to take someone else’s life just because their feelings were hurt.
.
There has been and will always be differences between people. The solution to cutting remarks and emotionally charged communication is not to merely limit the thoughts and opinions a person can express. A person should be allowed express their opinions in a non-violent matter. If a person acts unlawfully also  in doing so, that person should be punished, using existing generic codes, because of his/her literal actions, not thoughts or opinions. At the same time, minority groups can  use that same freedom of speech to peaceably educate the  others, the public and work on the root of the problem, and in doing so effect a voluntary change in public opinion.
.

There is inappropriate speech..   The Islamic massacre at the offices of Charlie Hebdo was, of course, an attack on free speech. It has inspired worldwide support for freedom of speech.   In the aftermath of what happened at the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris there were a limited, but noticeable, number of political comments bordering on defending  the murders. The comments didn’t go as far as saying the people deserved to be killed but people tried to excuse what happened. Including some Catholic leaders. Their comments were  inappropriate speech. ” I’m not really sure what more evidence they need. Muslims attacked and killed people working for a satirical newspaper well known for lampooning Muhammad and Islam (as well as other religions and religious figures). The gunmen were Muslims. They were heard shouting “We have avenged the Prophet Muhammad” and “God is Great” in Arabic (“Allahu Akbar”). This was a religion inspired attack by religious people for religious reasons. Sharia calls for death for Blasphemy. The gunmen, despite having no authority to do so, were enforcing this law. A religion was insulted. A religion was defended by religious people and it was done with murderous consequences.” To suggest Islam had nothing to do with it is the height of either stupidity, naivete or immorality. Clearly the Sharia law needs to be banned, prohibited as well..  There *is* an issue within Islam and that issue is that Sharia law says that blasphemy is punishable by death. all persons  need to put pressure on Islamic leaders to renounce this law and demand that the Islamic leaders declare that Islam also *is* open to criticism and satire. According to the data from an American survey published here

  • 58% said “no” When asked, “Do you believe that criticism of Islam or Muhammad should be permitted under the Constitution’s First Amendment?”
  • 45% of respondents agreed “…that those who criticize or parody Islam in the U.S. should face criminal charges,”
  • 32% believed “…Sharia law should be the supreme law of the land in the US.”
The more these people accept that Islam is not above criticism, they more they accept that blasphemy is *not* punishable, and the more vocal they are about that to their community leaders, the less likely it is that people will be killed for drawing cartoons.

Philippians 3: 18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

James 3:
1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.
2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.
3 Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

Useless CRTC

0-fderal-conservatives
Sent: Monday, January 26, 2015 12:46 PM
 .
Why does it takes months  and months even  for the CRTC to deal with a clearly open and shut case
where to date  Acanac has lied, abused me, not provided their promised internet services. Well?
Clearly the CRTC is a waste of Taxpayers money
Form letters, excuses, buck passing is not what we need but real, visible, viable results here too.
 .
“Acanac’s High Speed Internet DSL Service  DSL 5.0 mbps   is available across Ontario and Quebec .  Acanac is one of the very few companies in Canada that offers a truly unlimited service at a reasonable price. As a customer of Acanac you will never exceed an artificially imposed monthly allowance of usage . That doesn’t mean we’re perfect, but when we make mistakes we fix them. ( Lies)”
.

Here is just some of what others have also said about them that reflect my dealings with them too.

Absolutely horrible customer service, they are there to take your money and not provide any support at all.   “  ”  Speed is not stable and tech support is very slow. I’ve used Acanac for more than 5 years, rarely have issue with them but once there’s one, it takes weeks to resolve it. very disappointing.”  “ STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!!!! This is the worse service I have ever been given in my life.” “ But the customer service is really disappointing.   “  “. Speed has been on the slow to very slow side and I have had my connection lost completely 3 times.   “   “ I used this service for almost 3 years, and wana say that Acanac service becomes the worse and worse, so I cancelled my contract with it. Reasons: 1. Low speed, 2.I didn’t have the entrance to the Internet during several hours almost every day for the last half year. 3. When I tried to reach their technical support service it was a real headache for me. I think they simply ignored my request, but they answering me immediately when I sent the cancelation notice to them. I have to state that Acanac doesn’t care about it’s customers.  “  “  -Service was good, until your service slows or or stops working and you have to reach out for help.  “  “  Finally get useless support email 16 hours after sending in my ticket suggesting I check the cable to the demarc etc etc. Issues continued for a week, customer service never improved. “ “  absolutely terrible customer service. “ “ Acanac has made my life a living hell. Telephone wait times are 45-50 minutes if it is your lucky day or no one answers. Even if someone answers you will quickly realise the guy has no clue or has no inclination to help you. Once the guy was dumb enough to ask me “why did you not send us an email?” Duh!!! I do not have internet?!!! SO PLEASE, PLEASE BE WITHOUT AN INTERNET THAN SIGNING UP WITH THIS COMPANY. THEY ARE HORRIBLE. “  “ However, when you need technical support, you could be put on the phone waiting for hours..  “   Much is promised when inquiring by their sales people, however tech support is non-existent. DO NOT USE UNLESS YOU ENJOY SUFFERING. Tech response is hidden behind a very primitive email service.  DSL connection speed is no better than dial up. “  “Internet goes down at least 4- 6 times a year. You have to call them to get good customer service. Their email and text service is the worst, specially the email response is just a copy and paste , they don’t even read what your problem is.” “  After 2 years, I have had enough – Never again, and I will make sure I tell as many people as I can to never give this company any business “  http://www.canadianisp.ca/cgi-bin/isp_comment_totals.cgi?f=Comments&ispid=52

.

By slowing down my speeds and capping my downloads as well and as not immediately dealing with my many Acanac internet problems too . undeniably Acanac has been guilty of misleading false advertisements and also violation of my annually renewed contract agreement with them. 
.
Imagine that  Acanac-Bell has been in Business for many years and was, is still too often, wrongfully 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 Acanac-Bell and many others and  many times too now . I had Paid for a   DSL 5.0 mbps  high speed unlimited download service but that is not what I got next. I got low internet speed at a high price. With Acanac-Bell you have to check your actual delivered speeds , “internet download and upload speed test” continually too cause Bell wrongfully seems always  to change it to suit themselves..  they do not, did  honour my contract agreement.
.
 
Basic Contract law – Basic Contract law – Basic Contract law- Basic Contract law
.
Next here is basic legal, valid  understanding, terms of a valid contract, contract  law for all of the managers, president of Bell and all of  Bell employees too. Not just for any customers. Bell had, has definitely detailed, advertised it’s Internet services to all with their  terms, limitations and any customers who enters into mutually agreed upon terms, agreement with their services now forms the  essential mutually legally binding contract..
.
1: A contract is a legally binding exchange of promises or agreement between competent two parties, persons of legal age too, that the governmental court, the law of the state or province , or country next will enforce. Contract law is based on the Latin phrase pacta sunt servanda (pacts must be kept).  Anyone can enter into a contract, except minors, certain felons and people of unsound mind.  It’s important to know that not all contracts details even  have to be in writing., for instance, certain agreements can also be made and accepted orally and still be legally enforceable. While the contract agreement doesn’t always have to be in writing, all the other elements of a valid contract still have to be met, included, , fulfilled by law. The bottom line is that  the parties generally come to transactions in good faith, mutually trust and understanding, and not a one way approach, one way demands, one way relationship. All valid  courts, will not enforce, accept as valid  any contract to perform an accepted illegal act. A contract to kill some is invalid clearly too.  A person who pays for bad drugs that aren’t delivered can’t next seek the help of a court or the police in getting the money back. Unbelievable some people still do try to do this too. A valid contract also always requires the mutual parties’ consent, which must be freely made, not forced consent,  and clearly communicated to each other. Consent is not free when obtained through duress, menace, fraud,  lies, undue influence or mistakes, serious errors were presented.  Consent isn’t mutual unless the parties agree on the same thing in the same sense, a clear “meeting of the minds. One party now  presenting only their own  their terms, conditions, without the other parties approval, consent, free will   clearly is still not a valid contract.  In order for an acceptance of an offer to be effective, it must be made while the  sales, specific, fixed service offer is still open. Any  person can changes the conditions of an initial offer in responding to the offer, the old offer is clearly now rejected and the changed conditions constitute a counteroffer and that now becomes part of of any subsequent agreed upon contract. I did that with Bell now too. Once there is next a final, written contract between the parties, the parol evidence rule forbids the introduction in a court proceeding of any previous agreements between the parties on the subject matter of the contract.Only certain contracts aren’t valid unless in writing. Generally, they do deal with real property, certain specific loans, debts, money exceeding a certain amount, or contracts concerning the sale of goods worth more than $500 or one that   include  objects that won’t be performed within one year or within the promisor’s lifetime. Bell now being unable to supply me a promised high speed internet but only a low speed one is still a good example of an invalid contract even if was a written one originally from  Bell – Acanac.
.
2: The Specific parties. The contract must always include,  identify who the agreed upon specific parties are; usually names are sufficient, but sometimes addresses or titles may be used.   Bell – Acanac and the specific customer. Me in this case.
.
3: The agreed upon object.  The Offer,  the thing, the value, the  services being agreed to is also known as the object or subject  and it itself not only  must be lawful, possible but it must be a definite, fixed, measurable amount specially now even by the laws of Quebec too. For instance Bell promising to deliver a customer a 6 meg download high speed   internet service, where they know they only have a 3 meg line capacity is not legal or legally binding contract. Bell – Acanac promising to supply their” best services “or “up to 6 megs services” is not legal as well for it is  is not really an agreed upon  fixed  object, rather the object is not definite and most customers have take that to mean 6 megs anyway. . The object of the contract does have to be very specific and measurable. It is Bell – Acanac obligations now to to clerk up any ambiguity on the contract as agree upon by the comer now too. So if Bell – Acanac is  promising a 6 megs internet services, and Bell – Acanac by law  next has to deliver 16 megs to meet their promise that is also now part of the contract too. A specified length of time, such as one year does not mean the contract is still valid if Bell has not lived up to the agreed upon previously contract terms.
.
4: The outcome, or the considerations. All contracts require consideration, meaning each party must gain something fixed, tangible. It may also be something that is or isn’t done or given.   When a party agrees to do something (such as I will paint your house) or to not do something (I will not  sell my  house to anyone else for 30 days) they next also must gain something in return toy make this a valid contract, they must receive  agreed upon   fixed payment, a fixed reward. Generally, if I say I’ll paint your house, and you haven’t promised me anything in return, you can’t sue me next for not showing up because I will not receive  any consideration firstly”. Once a contract has been created, it can be determined if there are any issues that call into question of  its validity too.
  .
5: Termination of contracts.  Breach of contract.  Breach of contract is recognised by the law with applicable penalties now too.  Contracts generally can only be terminated if mutually agree now by both parties as to what the terminations terms included. Parties to a contract may mutually agree to rescind the contract. In that case, the parties may agree on the duties and responsibilities of each party after the rescission. Bell still expecting  me to pay for their internet when they do not keep their promises is a breach of the contract, an invalid demand of me.   Now is the contract  price set, are promised quantities specially  determined, and is the time for performance clearly  stated? There should be enough information contained in the contract  always  that, if needed, the courts likely next  would be able to enforce the contract or determine the appropriate damages. Unless it is mutually agreed upon before any subsequent court demanded decision action,  is taken.  Fraud is the intentional misrepresentation of an important issue of the contract. The presence of fraud in a contractual proceeding makes the contract voidable by the party upon whom the fraud was perpetrated. The contract always still now binds both parties, and not just the customer to the terms, conditions of the contract agreed upon now as well.  Once it is determined that there is a contract, it it  still can, must be determined whether there are any defenses that call into question the validity of the contract.
.
Bell –  Acanac Changing horses, making changes, additions to the contract in midstream is invalid, a breach, still not allowed, especially without the subsequent, and pre consent, approval of both parties now still too and is a breach of contract rather. That includes Bell capping of my bit torrent downloads too on my unlimited download account
.
Yes a   contract also may end because of a breach by Bell – Acanac.  A breach occurs when a person, or a firm  does not fulfill his or her, their  responsibilities as promised in the contract. A breach may be minor or major. A  major breach is one that does affect the subject matter of the contract and does  affect the outcome of the contract.  Bell not having sufficient equipment, capacity in place to meet my high speed internet, is a breach of contract. This is also known as a breach of a material issue. When there has been a breach in a contract, the question of damages is raised. The damages due to a party when there is a contract breach depend on many factors, including: which party breaches, and what damages were incurred. In most cases when an injury results from a contract breach, the injured party receives money damages. Such as I have in Dec  2007 from Bell.  Bell itself has unacceptably cause now in the last many years many unacceptable breaches in our contract that I have clearly even in writing not accepted and have objected too and demand restitution of as well rightfully.Go back to a good school firstly Bell – Acanac if you cannot understand and keep all of this now too.

“Despite precedents that show that contracts substantially favoring the party with the greater power often are deemed unconscionable (so unfair as to not be enforceable), lawyers stiff draft them and companies still like them.   Lesson learned: Make deals that are balanced; contracts that distribute risks and responsibilities fairly. Such deals will be honored by courts and your businesses wealth and reputation will benefit over the long term. “ http://troutmanhays.wordpress.com/2008/03/23/one-sided-contracts-are-a-bad-deal-for-all-parties-or-getting-greedy-will-get-ya/  
,
In Real Estate specifically , there it is a requirement at Law that contracts be written down in usually lengthy legal forms to avoid uncertainty, ambiguity and to be binding “.   When I asked Bell – Acanac to confirm the contract I had with them in writing they next always had refused to do so.. this speaks for itself..

ONCE AGAIN ALBERTA HEADS INTO A DEPRESSION

ALBERTA’S GREED DID NOT PAY OFF AS EXPECTED AGAIN AND AGAIN
.
Never mind what the spin doctors will say about Alberta’s future, the present reality is  Alberta is mainly, oil and gas, tourists, dependent on its resource sector and  the province has long relied on both the economic activity and the direct revenue from royalties and land sales to underpin government budgets but now this bubble has burst again,  the Oil’s price plunge means a bumpy ride in  all  sales, the economy in Alberta.   ‘Oil Prices are not going to bounce back:’ Prentice gloomy about quick oil recovery. Oil’s price collapse sends shiver across Alberta’s real estate market. Home prices fall also  in Calgary as real estate chill deepens.  Sales are down 7.5 per cent versus a year ago, while the  new listings have   “gushed” 42 per cent higher.  The Bank of Canada’s decision this week to slash its trend-setting interest rate a quarter of a percentage point to 0.75 per cent will not help to pay the high home mortgages many have there. You also cannot borrow more money, or buy more when facing a job cut.  School fees in Alberta triple in five years.   The out-of-pocket cost of sending a child to public schools in Alberta nearly tripled in five years as boards became increasingly dependent on fees to meet their budgets, and the Edmonton police are focusing more energy on   property crimes which  have climbed significantly. There have been 23 break and enters, 28 thefts from vehicles, and 20 thefts of vehicles in the area during the first few weeks of 2015. That is double number of property crimes the neighbourhood experienced at the same time in 2014 .  “The fact that these school fees have increased during a period when this province had record revenues is just not fair to the average Alberta family,”
.
While the Alberta Premier Jim Prentice says there’s no chance that the province can “ride things out” while waiting for a rebound in oil prices. Prentice admits  that a full discussion must be held with Albertans to find a way to deal even tax increases, with a decline of $7 billion in resource revenues triggered by a fall in world oil prices to below US$50 a barrel. Alberta’s prideful boast of being the only jurisdiction in Canada without a provincial sales tax will likely soon be history. The province, with a $40-billion budget, expects to take in only $17 billion in combined corporate and personal income tax this year. Prentice also said that public-sector workers are among the best paid in Canada and will need to step up in tough times. Dream on..Alberta Premier Jim Prentice says there are no simple solutions for the revenue shortfall that will be coming from plummeting oil prices and Albertans will feel the consequences.  Alberta can’t just wait for high prices to return: there has to be a focus on cost-cutting while at the same time providing necessary cash for the also significantly reduced  core services. On top of day-to-day deficits, the province also owes $11 billion for borrowing to pay for past capital projects.  Alberta has to  to do a lot more than pray for another oil boom to come along and to presently pay the Bills..The oils sands  too are not the big miracle Alberta had dreamed on.

CANADA’S PRIME MINISTER’S Stephen Harper bad policy on Oil and Putin, where he says Russia has failed on many  fronts and has had no positive gains NEEDS A Re Adjustment. As in his own province things look really bleaker now too. Prime Minister Stephen Harper was openly  punishing Russia but seems to have inflicted more pain on his own people instead. THE OIL PRICE DROP HAS HIT  CANADA  SEVERELY
.
 CALGARY – Suncor Energy Inc. slashed $1-billion from its 2015 budget, with oil sands and East Coast projects getting deferred and 1,000 jobs eliminated. That was a day after Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. lopped $2.4-billion from its previously announced 2015 plan  and In oil boom town Fort McMurray, ‘it’s like the place has gone dead’ .  The  Plunging oil prices will cost Canada’s drilling industry close to 23,000 direct and indirect jobs this year, more than were lost during the 2009 downturn, according to updated forecast Thursday by the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling. Oil-patch spending cuts  have escalated well into the billions of dollars represent money that won’t go to the Albertan workers. The drillers and oil-field service providers involved in fracking,  maintaining old wells and hauling gear around are just  the thin edge of the wedge in the oil-price collapse as the companies in that sector make even larger cuts to their work forces in the coming months. What a costly Harper fight with Russia for all Canadians.
.

Further more a surge of light oil from North Dakota and Texas is cutting into the earnings of Canadians who turn heavy oil sands into a lighter crude that fetches more from refiners. Producers in Alberta, home of the country’s greatest reserves, upgraded 20 percent less of the region’s crude in October than four years earlier, according to the province’s energy regulator. Two of five plants under construction were canceled and the province’s upgrading and refining capacity fell in 2013 for the first time in three decades. Companies are now sending record amounts of the heavy stuff on pipelines and trains to refineries in the U.S. Midwest and Gulf Coast, Projects including Suncor Energy Inc. (SU)’s Voyageur joint venture with France’s Total SA (FP) and Value Creation Inc.’s BA Energy Heartland were abandoned. Global oil prices, down by more than 50 percent since June, will make upgrading projects even more challenging because the price difference between heavy and light crude is narrower, U.S. output has risen 70 percent in the past five years as producers used horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing to tap into previously inaccessible shale rock layers thousands of feet below the Earth’s surface. Most of the increase has been in light, sweet crude, similar quality Alberta upgraders get from processing heavy, thick oil sands. The rising flows south of Canadian crude are drawing a backlash in Alberta from labor groups, who say jobs, not just oil, are being exported. Alberta’s 4.6 percent unemployment rate, second lowest in Canada after Saskatchewan, may increase after oil’s 55 percent drop in six months prompted some producers to curtail future investment. “Building upgraders in Alberta is seen by the industry as uneconomic,” Dinara Millington, a vice president at the Canadian Energy Research Institute, said in an e-mail Jan. 13. “The U.S. refining market is being flooded with the light crude and they wouldn’t necessarily want our light stuff.”

“Canada, the oil sands’ poor image isn’t just a question of bad PR.  Anti-oil sands sentiment has made it nearly impossible to build the necessary pipeline connections producers need to get all that oil to market. TransCanada Corp.’s crossborder Keystone XL pipeline is in danger of being axed by U.S. President Barack Obama. The industry’s backup plan, Enbridge Inc.’s Northern Gateway pipelineto shipping terminals on the B.C. coast, has become bogged down in political and environmental controversy. Even TransCanada’s Energy East proposal, a sort of backup for the backup, has encountered unexpected political resistance in Ontario and Quebec—two provinces the diluted bitumen must transit through on its way to refineries in New Brunswick.”

.

Canadian exporters now also have also been stung by Russia’s currency crisis and its retaliatory sanctions against the West over the crisis in Ukraine.   Companies from farm-equipment manufacturers to pork producers are affected.  The Russian market bought 563-million dollars worth of Canada’s agricultural exports in 2012 Richard Davies, a vice-president at pork and poultry processor in Caaaanada Olymel,  said the fallout from the Ukraine crisis has had a significant effect. Russia has struck back by slapping a ban on meat, seafood, milk and dairy products, fruit and vegetables from Canada, the U.S., the European Union, and other countries.  The Russian government has also limited subsidies, particularly to its agricultural sector.

Mountie charged with trafficking cocaine and Ecstasy

0canada-rcmp-security-2010-e

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 21, 2015  A Saskatchewan Mountie has been charged with trafficking cocaine and Ecstasy, the RCMP said

The now-suspended officer has been on the force nearly seven years and was stationed in Swift Current as a general duty constable since 2012, the RCMP said.

“It’s very disheartening that a serving police officer, sworn to uphold the law, is facing criminal charges,” RCMP Supt. Alfredo Bangloy said in a statement. ”

.

“An Ontario Provincial Police officer working out of a detachment in the east region has been charged with criminal harassment. The OPP’s professional standards bureau launched an investigation into the provincial constable in September 2014 after a complaint was filed.  The 37-year-old officer was arrested four months later on Jan. 29. He is charged with two counts of criminal harassment and one count of unlawfully being in a dwelling. He is scheduled to appear in court in Renfrew on March 25. The man is a 13-year member of the OPP and is “presently on leave,” OPP said in a media release. His name is not being released in order to protect the identity of the victim.” and if you belive this you are dumb, really dumb..

.

Look the RCMP even had known   for years specifics details by wire tapping about the Corruption in the Quebec city halls and they next still did nothing good about it..

.

People in leadership office do have to face higher penalties as an example now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those 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, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary  judged, prosecuted  for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks.

.

Too many police officers are now too often guilty of their most serious neglect of public trust and their duty. The related truth is that neither an independent police investigation, a new police commissioner,  a promised provincial or federal investigation, or just more politicians promises too often still   will not bring the much needed justice. All of the governments can prohibit the initial and further employment of any known racists for any jobs, and can  punish them for their racists acts, views. Police managers continue to promise the reforming of bad cops and the bad cops keep killing, abusing  innocent persons. The possible retraining of bad  police officers is always anyway a false myth. What thus is always needed is the real  the dismissal, criminal prosecution, of the guilty cops. So where is it? Speeding is not the main cause of car accidents, impaired driving is, but too many cops are alcoholics it seems who wrongfully do sympathize with drunks and as a result do not arrest drunks all year .. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/07/18/we-all-do-know-it-is-merely-the-tip-of-a-large-iceberg/
