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,”

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.

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

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.”

.

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.

THEY OFTEN DO STEAL THE DESIGNATED MONIES

stop-thief

The first revelation of all crooked politicians comes from follow the Money trail.. does he or she abuse the tax payer’s money..

The second  revelation of a crooked politician comes from see if his or she are an adulterer.. clearly big  liars…

The third simple  revelation of a crooked politician comes from see if she or him are an alcoholic, drink more than one glass a day..  meaning they are addicted to vice.. 

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING NEW AS I HAVE MENTIONED IT FOR YEARS IN MY WRITINGS..  THAT THEY  HAVE BEEN DOING IT FOR YEARS AT THE FEDERAL, PROVINCIAL AND MUNICIPAL LEVELS.  THEY STEAL THE MONEY… THE DESIGNATED MONEY NEVER REACHES IT’S INTENDED AREA  BUT IS FALSELY DIVERTED ELSEWHERE TOO OFTEN..

 The federal government had already given money to help reduce the  Railway transportation accidents such as the one at   Lac-Mégantic but somehow the monies never made it there.. they were stolen..

The federal government issued money to improve our armed forces too but somehow all of the designated the monies never made it there.. they were stolen..

The federal government issued money to help to reduce the negative effect of flooding in Alberta but somehow all of the designated the monies never made it there they were falsely and  mostly spent elsewhere.. they were stolen..

Even the RCMP does the same bad things now.. even the unnecessary out of town trips

.

The RCMP repeatedly stonewalled media inquiries for months about the price tag for destroying the federal long gun registry data, even though the federal police force had a full cost estimate in hand. The Mounties had a detailed breakdown more than a year ago that showed fulfilling the long time Conservative promise to kill the registry would cost about $1 million. A PowerPoint presentation laying out the plan and its costs was provided to The Canadian Press under an Access to Information request following an 11-month delay. In the meantime, RCMP officials refused to answer direct questions about whether any such costing had been done, saying only that any spending related to the registry’s destruction would come out of the force’s own budget. “It’s sad when it comes from an agency like the RCMP that is there to uphold the law. They’re supposed to be leaders in this society on how to behave well,”    RCMP’s handling of the file calls into question whether its communications can be trusted on bigger issues – including the current Senate investigation of improper expense claims     http://www.ottawacitizen.com/news/RCMP+cost+estimate+registry+data+destruction/8921176/story.html

WHAT HAPPNED IN Lac-Mégantic, Quebec and in the flooding of Alberta both were even falsely allowed to occur by bad  persons.. and the police should put the bad people in jail..

where

And so it goes on and on.. and the citizens are the ones who mainly suffer as a direct result..

 .

Having lived for years in Alberta for me to say I do not trust the whole Alberta Governments is still a really great understatement.
.
A bad image problem  is not the only main problem for Alberta even in June 2013  Canmore, Cochrane; Bragg Creek and Redwood towns were one of the first to be hit with flooding as well  and now yes  Canmore  the home of the perverse Canmore Traffic court, and RCMP  traffic ticket revenue generation as I have already written recently,  the  severe flooding moved on to Calgary and next to many cities along the   rivers of southern Alberta.

BC Man Creates Speed Kills Your Pocketbook Video, Goes Viral

 Sep 17, 2013  Chris Thompson is like the majority of us who think speed limits in many areas are too low to be safely adhered to. The only difference between us and Chris is he’s doing something about it. Earlier this month, Thompson posted “Speed Kills Your Pocketbook” on YouTube where it has already garnered over a million views and is grabbing the attention of MLAs in British Columbia. The video focuses on one road in particular, but does mentioned others in BC and talks about speeding in general. It also takes ICBC (British Columbia’s public insurer), the police, and media to task for using speed as an excuse to boost venues and provide sensational news items. The major point the video makes is it isn’t those who go above the posted speed limit in a safe manner that cause crashes. Instead, it is those who go way above the limit while driving recklessly, or those who drive at the posted limit when the flow of traffic is much higher. “Everybody votes with their right foot every time they drive, and it’s pretty obvious that virtually nobody is obeying the unrealistic speed limits we have on some of our better highways,” “Virtually nobody has said they don’t like [the video],”   http://globalnews.ca/news/839872/speed-kills-your-pocketbook-video-goes-viral/

.
 The RCMP now have no time to get money from speeding tickets but instead they have to help instead the flooded citizens.. that must hurt their false pride and economic income. 
 .
Speeding is all about money tickets and not public safety .
.
WHILE SPEEDING IS A  GOOD MONEY GENERATOR  STILL IT  IS NOT THE  MAJOR CRIME IN  ALBERTA, BUT THEIR LYING, AND STEALING IS.
.
Now the  safety Nazis certainly won’t agree with this statement, but in my opinion SPEEDING IS NOT A CRIME NOR DOES IT KILL  PEOPLE AS MUCH AS OTHER ACTS NOW DO.. SUCH AS MEDICAL ERRORS, ALCOHOLIC AND DRUG CONSUMPTION, ROAD RAGE, DIVORCE ETC. , 
.
And ”Please Note I am talking ONLY about speeding on highways and interstates, not in congested urban areas, on residential streets or in school zones.  Idiots who drive too fast for traffic, weather or visibility conditions, weave in and out of traffic, don’t signal when changing lanes or turning, cut off other drivers, blow through red lights and stop signs, pass on a yellow lines, and generally drive as if they were competing in a NASCAR race ought to be ticketed  They STILL DO SAY  say that “Speed Kills!”  No, speed does NOT kill.  Drunk drivers kill.  Idiots kill.  Road Rage kills. Bad weather kills.  Stupid driving blunders kill.  Tire blowouts and rollovers kill.  Exhausted truck drivers kill.  People falling asleep at the wheel kill.  But driving 10, 15 or even 20 mph over the posted speed limit does NOT kill anybody.  It never has.  It never will.  I think I should have the right to determine how fast I can drive my car on the open highway depending on weather, visibility and traffic conditions, and the capabilities of my vehicle.  I don’t need some bureaucrat telling me how fast or slow I should drive.  In the meantime, I’ll keep my radar detector on to reduce my risk of getting a speeding ticket” http://www.aa1car.com/blog/speeding_not_a_crime.htm

July 2013.. Federal Official Opposition Leader Thomas Mulcair himself after visiting Calgary, Alberta said he doesn’t think the rest of Canada has a full understanding of the devastation caused by floods that hit southern Alberta  now. “  it’s easy to forget that there are months, and months, and months of cleanup. And then years and years and years of rebuilding”  Many of the Albertans,  First Nations and even low-income Albertans, including seniors, who were pushed out of their homes NNED TO be put back into proper housing  EVEN before the  Alberta winter hits. Who will help to do all of this still? Almost no one? Donations received  are just a drop in the bucket.
.
 Up to 150,000 people without a Home to live in or a home that is flood damaged and  NO one will pay for the repairs to it.. Major roads, even bridges damaged, the C-train  put out of action for weeks, accessibility across town, or to downtown extremely difficult, the whole downtown core shut anyway.
.
Infrastructure damage in the Billions of dollars, months or years to repair too.. and No one had ever thought such a devastation  would  ever happen. The Government of Alberta does not have the cash or income to pay for all of this too. . Insurers won’t cover homes hit by overland flood waters.  “There’s no overland flooding coverage in Canada.”  
.
Now THE  Flood emergency HAS BEEN  lifted in Cochrane; Bragg Creek and Redwood residents permitted to return.. 
.
DUE TOO THE HEAVY ABNORMAL  RAINFALL IN ALBERTA, THE FLOODING OF THE RIVER BASINS THAT STARTED IN BANFF, NEXT IN EXSHAW, CANMORE,   WELL I DO UNDERSTAND THE DEVASTATION AND IT’S FULL CONSEQUENCES  AS I HAD  WORKED EVEN AS A REALTOR THERE..    
.
 EVEN CALGARY ALBERTA DOES NOT HAVE THE MONEY OR  THE SKILLED MANPOWER TO REBUILD FROM IT’S UNEXPECTED DEVASTATION THAT OCCURRED INSTANTLY AND WILL TAKE DECADES TO RESTORE.

Bowness park Where many of the seniors, poor people live, their homes were flooded too.  Flooding impact in downtown Calgary is so dire that some parts of the core may take weeks or months to return to normalcy, Mayor Naheed Nenshi said  on June 20,2013 . Calgary Alberta Downtown business to be shut down at least a month due to floods, power outages    In Alberta  now price gouging is going on . Products such as water and ice  etc ., are being sold at jacked up values. “Under the emergency management act in province of Alberta, price gouging or price fixing above normal levels during a state of local emergency is illegal and it would take some cooperation between ourselves and police but individuals could be prosecuted for that,”  and “the legislation states the cost of goods before a local state of emergency should be the cost of goods during the local state of emergency.” Fire Chief and head of the Calgary Emergency Management Association Bruce Burrell says there are laws against it which protect the consumer. But it is all still  just cheap talk as  no one has been arrested for it so far. Such is the bad  reality.
.
Alberta’s cities rarely spend federal cash on disaster prevention.  
 .
While receiving hundreds of millions of federal dollars for infrastructure since 2006, southern Alberta’s flood-battered communities focused on building highways, leisure centres and event facilities rather than flood protection, which Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi acknowledges is not considered a “hugely sexy thing.” 
.
Since 2006, the list of projects Calgary sought, and received, Infrastructure Canada money for includes $138-million for roads, $63-million for public transit, $25-million for the home of the Calgary Stampede and another $25-million for a National Music Centre. Calgary’s 17 listed projects total about $366-million in federal cash.
.
But none appear to have dealt with disaster mitigation, which an Infrastructure Canada spokesperson said “has been an eligible category for funding under several Building Canada and Economic Action Plan initiatives.” Municipalities have little financial incentive to pick disaster mitigation projects – when disaster does strike, the province foots the initial bill, with federal taxpayers ultimately picking up the vast majority of costs. In the case of High River, Alta., municipal officials ultimately stepped aside altogether, allowing the province to lead the recovery plan as well as pay for it.   http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/ottawa-left-on-the-hook-as-funding-not-often-spent-on-disaster-prevention/article13094979/  
.
BY  THE WAY THE BROKE GOVERNMENT IN ALBERTA IS STILL MOSTLY ALL UNWISE TALK AND VERY LITTLE HELP TO THE FLOODED CITIZENS, FLOODED HOME OWNERS
.
The Crappy Alberta’s Minister of Municipal Affairs, Doug Griffiths, held a news conference   to unveil his unrealistic new policies to mitigate future floods in the province. And the already broke, poor,  Premier Alison Redford promised a harder line on building in flood-prone areas in the aftermath of this summer’s unprecedented flooding, while lyingly pledging that the Alberta provincial government will be there to help with all the costs for the devastated community of High River in the long run.
.
Rebuild or relocate? Devastating Alberta floods have some wondering if it’s time to move communities off flood plains.
.
the province is struggling to balance the probability of future flooding with the cost of repair, replacement and mitigation.
.
There are no easy answers.” “ I think you would have to move half the city.” “ It’s an extreme position, but as the flood waters leave billions of dollars in damage in their wake, some Albertans are increasingly questioning how — and even whether — to rebuild their homes and businesses. Some of the critics,  object to funnelling thousands of taxpayer dollars to replace the homes that line Calgary’s Bow and Elbow Rivers.
.
The idea of millionaires receiving government aid money rankles, even though damage to these  elite properties represents a small minority; last month’s unprecedented flood washed out whole neighbourhoods — including high rises and middle-class and working-class homes.
.
Additionally, half the city’s dense downtown core was inundated, flooding office towers, roads, electrical substations and even the Stampede grounds. The cost of relocating half the core and almost all of the neighbouring heritage communities would be staggering. 
.
There is no overland flooding insurance in Canada, although some companies have agreed to cover the cost of sewer back up. Still, that will leave thousands of homeowners paying out of their own pocket, or relying on the provinces disaster recovery program” Money that both federal and Albertan government do not even have  when you consider about 100,000 homes to be relocated at least a minimum half a million dollars each..   http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/07/14/rebuild-or-relocate-devastating-alberta-floods-have-some-wondering-if-its-time-to-move-communities-off-floodplains/
.
DREAM ON!  THERE IS VERY LITTLE OR NO SERVICED  LAND AVAILABLE AND IT FIRSTLY WOULD TAKE YEARS TO GET  MORE OF THE  NEW LAND SERVICED AS WELL…
.
NOW ABOUT THE FLOODED BASEMENTS, MOST OF THEM WOULD REQUIRE NEW HEATING FURNACES INSTALLED before winter too WHICH ARE NOT READILY AVAILABLE NOW TOO NOR THE PEOPLE TO INSTALL THEM..
.
THEN THERE IS THE COSTLY SEWER BACK UP PREVENTION WATER VALVE INSTALLATIONS, COST IS ABOUT 20,000  DOLLARS TOO FOR EACH HOME.. I AM SURE THEY ALL THE FLOODED HOME OWNERS  CAN EASILY AFFORD THAT COSTS TOO..
.
July 2013..Many of those affected by the recent flooding in Canmore,  Calgary, Exshaw, high River, etc,  are now looking back on the month that was and are starting to rebuild.
.
Flood info sessions planned. Provincial experts on flood mapping and the disaster recovery program will be available in communities affected by the floods at upcoming public information sessions.
The province is mandating that homeowners who live in the floodway can choose to rebuild and repair, or leave. If they choose to relocate, the province will assist them — in some cases, that means purchasing land.
.
Residents living in flood fringe areas must flood-proof their homes if they want to eligible for flood relief in the future. The first information session was held in High River tonight. There are sessions planned in Medicine Hat, Calgary, Canmore, Lethbridge, Bragg Creek and Turner Valley.
.
Many Albertans still do say they’re having a tough time finding contractors and equipment and others are still waiting for word on compensation from insurance companies and the province. The provincial government announced its long-term flood recovery and said “We know this work will take years — not weeks or months — and we will be there to support communities in their renewal efforts over the long term,” said Premier Alison Redford in a release. Prepared by the Flood Recovery Task Force, the plan looks to focus on four areas: financial support, repairing infrastructure, mitigating long-term environmental impacts and nurturing economic growth through reinvestments.

What you should know about C. diff, the shit disease

.
MY MOTHER RECENTLY WENT TO THE HOSPITAL FOR ONE PROBLEM  AND CAME HOME WITH THE SHIT DISEASE FROM THE MONTREAL ST LUC HOSPITAL..
.
Too many Canadian professionals, workers next  become too lax when they do think they have attained some kind of job security and fail to do their duties fully too, towards all others.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/11/hospital-deaths-account-for-half-of-deaths-annually/
.  
IMAGINE THIS TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE STILL DYING FROM THIS DECADES OLD  C. diff, the shit disease  where  contracting the superbug C. difficile in the hospital often is fatal or at least increases a patient’s stay by an average of six days, putting serious financial strain on Canada’s health-care system. A study by Quebec’s public health research institute (INSPQ) shows deaths related to clostridium difficile infections in 2010-2011 were the highest they’ve been since 2004. A total of 619 Quebecers died from C. difficile over the course of 2010 and 2011. And one death is always still one too many here too.. C. difficile is most often acquired in hospital, and  the disease is highly contagious.
.
We do not live in the dark ages for shit Disease is caused by poor cleanliness, poor hygiene, poor sanitation at the Hospital, who have been hiring NOT ONLY LAZY BAD employees but they have FOR AN UNACCEPTABLE DECADE NOW TOO   MANY THEY been cutting back on their MAINTENANCE COSTS and this has been unacceptable CLEARLY LEADING TO their criminal murderous acts OF THE CITIZENS.
.
Do take ALL OF THE HEALTH MINISTERS KNOW BEFORE A FIRING SQUAD AND SHOOT THEM, for THAT WOULD BE A RIGHT START TOO. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/09/01/shit-disease-c-difficile-or-what-ever/
.
Seniors and Children are more seriously affected, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure 
.
AND FOR DECADES EVEN IN QUEBEC, CANADA, AND NO ONE IS JAILED FOR IT.. NOT EVEN THE HEALTH MINISTERS.
.
Like most C. diff patients symptoms began with severe diarrhea as the  intestines were shutting down and the colon becomes swollen that it pushed pressure up to the lungs, making it difficult to breathe.  In serious cases a  fecal transplant can often be used successfully here..   
.
“ A USA TODAY investigation shows that is far more prevalent than federal reports suggest. The bacteria is linked in hospital records to more than 30,000 deaths a year in the United States— about twice federal estimates and rivaling the 32,000 killed in traffic accidents.  It strikes about a half-million Americans a year. Yet despite a decade of rising C. diff rates, health care providers and the government agencies that oversee them have been slow to adopt proven strategies to reduce the infections, resulting in tens of thousands of deaths and illnesses that could have been prevented, the investigation shows. Far more could be done to stop the deadly bacteria C. diff .  “I wish doctors were more forthcoming. … You don’t learn about it until after it’s too late.” The big challenge in curbing C. diff is getting everyone  to work together — from health care administrators and the government regulators  to doctors and nurses and the housekeeping staffs . “
.
“Hospital billing data collected by the US federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality shows that more than 9% of C. diff-related hospitalizations end in death — nearly five times the rate for other hospital stays.   Hundreds of Thousands more of unnumbered patients are treated in nursing homes, clinics and doctors’ offices.”  http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/health/story/2012-08-16/deadly-bacteria-hospital-infections/57079514/1
.
C. diff is “a big concern. And  C. diff infection can also now strike individuals at any age. The use of certain antibiotics can further  allow C. diff to thrive  Most medical staff and even citizens do not yet know,m realize how serious the diseases, prblme is cause they have not even been told about any of it.  Too many People are thus now dying needlessly. Deaths and illnesses are much higher than those disclosed also  since the bad doctors on their death certificates,  often don’t list the infection when patients die from complications, C. diff ,   kidney failure. It’s unacceptable and outrageous that C. diff hovers at all-time highs and the barrier is often cover ups and hospital costs plus  unacceptable medical practices. The news media and studies show that emergency rooms, patients’ rooms, washrooms, operating rooms too still often aren’t cleaned sufficiently.
.
 In 2009, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services launched an “action plan” to reduce six high-priority Hopsital, seniors, old age homes infections, including C. diff. Infection rates for five of those have dropped significantly, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA but not  C. diff infections
.
In 2003 the  US Environmental Protection Agency, which regulates hospital disinfectants, learned that none of its approved products actually killed C. diff spores — though many claimed on their labels that they were effective against the bacteria so  the agency ordered manufacturers to remove the claims and began to identify new disinfectants that work.
.
Steps have already been taken in Canada in major hospitals to try to reduce C. Diff infections. Much more needs still to be done ti insure better quality medical care and patient safety. Nurses, doctors,  pharmacists , therapists that provide hands-on treatment, cleaning technicians  still all do  need to be out there and do much more to keep all rooms clean and  hospital infection rates down  The government should require all hospitals to mandatorily and not optional  report all C. diff cases.
.
They must also meet targets for reducing C. diff.. in hospitals, nursing homes and other care settings, 30% reduction per year, and there must  be a real penalty under Medicare and Medicaid for facilities that have allowed high C. diff rates. All nursing homes  hospitals must publically publicly report their rates of infections, qne include C. diff.
.
Standing in the way to reduce C. Diff infections still  are the false Hospital, old age homes concerns about the costs, staffing and the complexity of creating and implementing new procedures that require interdisciplinary teams to work together as even many homes,  Hospitals have cut housekeeping budgets in recent years, so many hospitals spend too little minutes cleaning all the rooms room. 
.
As hospitals and nursing homes struggle with tight budgets and limited staffing, patient advocates say its critical that the public become more engaged in minimizing infection risks. Not all Hospitals don’t want to tell others,  patients the hospital  might be contaminated,” or to tell  the patients too the steps patients can take to minimize infection risks. Old age homes, Healthcare facilities  often lie, do not disclose the truth cause the “care about their reputation.”
.
Most hospitals still are slow to admit that they have infection related problems because admitting those problems, opens them up to lawsuits, and is admitting guilt prior to going to trial. It’s all about insurance (money) and lawyers. Things which should have nothing to do with keeping us healthy.
.
There is also limited tracking of antibiotics usages. In 2010, about 42% of infection control specialists nationwide said their facility had no antibiotic stewardship program, based on a survey by the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology. Such programs typically track the use of antibiotics to ensure proper use, which can reduce opportunities for infection.
.
The challenge of reducing C. Diff is also now still needed in nursing homes, where antibiotics are prolific, staffing often is too  thin and it’s tougher to isolate patients.
.
“How to attack the problem.There’s no mystery to cutting C. diff rates. The spore-forming bacteria exists throughout the environment: water, soil, human and animal feces. It typically sickens people taking certain stomach medicines or antibiotics, which diminish healthy bacteria in the gut as they attack infections. When levels of healthy bacteria get low, C. diff can take over, producing toxins that cause intense diarrhea, often with grave complications.The germ thrives in settings where antibiotics are in wide use, and its proliferation has accelerated as a new, hyper-virulent strain has emerged over the past decade. C. diff spores spread through fecal contamination: They get on people’s hands, often from bathroom fixtures, and move to other surfaces by touch, from light switches to bed rails to tables and trays. The tough-to-kill spores resist many disinfectants and can survive for months. Once they’re on patients’ hands, it’s a short trip to their mouths — and their intestines.”
.
The challenge is twofold:
 .
Control the use of antibiotics that allow C. diff to flourish,
.
and prevent the bacteria’s spread from infected patients via dirty hands, dirty rooms or dirty equipment.”
.
The British experience “has shown that substantial C. diff reductions are possible,” including changes in room-cleaning procedures, antibiotic controls and testing protocols for patients showing C. diff symptoms. 
.
Many other health care infections have been stemmed by ensuring that certain medical procedures are done properly. That the Catheter-related infections were eliminated by getting doctors to change protocols for installing the devices. Infections linked to surgical incisions and ventilators can be reduced by getting doctors and nurses to alter practices and  more staff are  needed.
.
Many US hospitals also  have confronted those challenges head-on:
.
“•In Cincinnati, The Jewish Hospital-Mercy Health slashed its high C. diff rate by half in less than a year by adopting stricter antibiotic controls and new room-cleaning protocols. The program costs the 209-bed hospital about $10,000 a year.
•In Pittsburgh, the 792-bed UPMC Presbyterian cut C. diff 71% from 2000 to 2006 with new cleaning protocols, better identification and isolation of infected patients, and antibiotic controls.
•In Oak Lawn, Ill., the 695-bed Advocate Christ Medical Center reduced C. diff cases 55% by retraining housekeepers, coordinating care with infection prevention specialists, and adopting new disinfection standards for high-touch areas.”
But if you’re having one case of any health care infections a year, that’s still a problem and all unacceptable.

Watch out for the money making speed traps..

5b0c8-canada-justice
So have you noticed that car insurance rates do not decrease even when less people have been killed on the road? when there have been less accidents.. they only go up and not down..
.
CITY HALLS, GOVERNMENTS USE SPEEDING AND PARKING TICKET AS AN ADDITONAL FALSE SOURCE OF REVENUES, TO FALSELY EVEN KEEP THEIR  NOW PERVERTED JOBS.
.

Watch out for the RCMP speed trap in Canmore , Alberta as you leave Banff park.. it generates the RCMP millions and millions of dollars per year.

( Revenue generating ) “Speed limits in the mountain parks are set with an eye toward preventing collisions with wildlife.” ( and how often does that occur? once a year?)

.

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

.

Now   if the cops are here just to collect speeding tickets and not to catch the real bad guys than merely do get rid of them.. speeding is not the main factor in accidents firstly.. but impaired, drunk drivers, road rage are..   The police can get promoted for getting more cash, giving out more tickets too.. self serving or really serving the public interest? Now we all know the police love to drink, love to speed,  and how many cops get pulled over?

.

AND WHERE DO IN REALTY THE POLICE OFFICERS GET ALL OF THEIR  COMMON SENSE SPEEDING STATISTICS? SUPPORTED BY THE FIGMENTS OF ONE’S  IMAGINATION AND THE NEED TO JUSTIFY THEIR JOBS.. CAN I SEE THEIR DETAIL SUPPORT  STATISTICS, POLICE TRAFFIC TICKETS REPORTS  IN PRINT? NO? AND WHY NOT?

.

IN THE CITY OF CALGARY POLICE E CHIEF’S OFFICE I READ A REPORT AS TO HOW MANY TICKETS WERE GIVEN BY MONTH IN EACH SPERATE AREA OF CALGARY IN COMPARISONS TO THE PREVIOUS YEARS TOO.. CAN SOMEONE PUBLISH THIS REPORT SO WE CAN ALL SEE   IT TOO NOW.

.

 “As Alberta grows, drivers are causing more problems, he said: “A lot of people are impatient, there’s road rage like never before, an increase of vehicles on our roadways, With booming populations, there’s an increase in collisions.” wow those are very smart observations, even such as traffic tickets are good cash cows too,  and what all the people who speed are guilty of road rage? or is there a separate ticket being issued to road ragers? just as there is to drunk drivers? Anyone who thinks the cops here are being honest, serving the public is a fool.

.

 Here is what I found amazing and worth while examining now  in much more detail.. insurance companies in Canada do not mind gouging Canadian consumers in their greed to make more profits..  and we all know that accumulating speeding , traffic infractions, will cause your car insurance costs to go up significantly…

and yet here is what I find surprising, neither the insurance companies, the provincial government, nor the federal government, the police have real, valid detailed statistics on the causes of traffic accidents: such as how many were caused my alcoholic drivers, how many were caused by speeding, how many were caused by poor road conditions, lousy snow clearing as well, etc not even in Ontario, Alberta, Quebec, BC as well.. …

.

so what do the insurance companies do with all the extra money they collect, certainly they of all persons should have firstly the best statistics on traffic accidents now in the first place, or how do they determine their rates??? Even Canada’s police chiefs have to rely on accident statistics from other countries, such as Australia, Great Britain, the US..

.

  And while car death rates have fallen, the ubiquitous use of cell phones and BlackBerrys while driving pose a serious  danger to drivers.

Note the RCMP who is so ready to monitor others cannot monitor itself properly

.

The RCMP like to give speed tickets when you are leaving the park, not entering it too.. and I got 2 speeding tickets on the same spot in Canmore ten years apart too… and the second time I went to court and rightfully fought the dirty RCMP too.      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.

.

“Those heading up our national police force must be so glad people have other things on their minds these days. Otherwise, Canadians might be howling about the Mounties’ latest antics and demanding our political leaders hold them accountable. Because, as we know, our elected officials refuse to utter the least critical word about the RCMP unless there is public pressure or they fear electoral ramifications.”

.

Most reasonable and reasoning people have seen the folly of speed cameras for decades now too.

The ” official statistics showed that only five per cent of crashes are caused by drivers breaking the speed limit. Drivers who let their attention wander cause more than six times as many accidents.” Driver error accounted for 66 per cent of accidents.. and add the road rage, impaired, drunk drivers, bad poorly maintained vehicles to that too

In reality the too often self serving, money hungry, promotional and empire oriented police, and their superiors, bad justice ministers, bad politicians  really do not care about the citizens good welfare but only their own. The police TRAFFIC program brings in hundreds of thousands of dollars but the police, city runs the program as revenue neutral. Profits are put back into more supposedly good  traffic safety initiatives,  but mainly into the police  empire building, so it really IS NOT THE CITIZENS GOOD WELFARE THEY FIRSTLY DO ALL CARE ABOUT.

.

And next so still do lay off all those people at city hall who are used to the “unacceptable culture of corruption and entitlement”. cut in half their expense accounts, and cut off all of the out of town trips too

.

And  No  matter how that dirty RCMP weasel spins the facts, tries to weasel out of the truth, the RCMP was clearly wrong on many counts in the Taser death of a polish immigrant at the Vancouver airport.. they were uncompassionate, inconsiderate, used more restraining force than was necessary, and they next also clearly lied to cover-up their own immoral acts, and many times as well, They slander a good man in the process as well.. and so none of this was, is acceptable or forgivable.. none  of it.

.

Remember that one of the first RCMP outpost in Canada historcially was in Calgary, Alberta the major home of crooks, thieves, cattle rustlers. Now it is the home of not just the abusers, drug pushers, car thieves, white collar criminals but the bad RCMP as well.

Most politicians, civil and public servants think the rules don’t apply to them.

canada-justice

It is an undeniable fact that the New Conservatives had said elect us and we will next show you an honest government, accountable, transparent as well but as we all tend to know next that was a big lie now too.. They clearly are not part of the  solutions to the much too many corruptions ongoing in Canada but clearly rather a part of the problem in that they and the RCMP for sure have failed to properly address the much too many  corruptions..

Public exposure , exemplary prosecutions, and real jail time  for the bad persons, criminals serves as the best   deterrent to all, the guilty offenders and all the accomplices included

.

OTTAWA – Federal procurement watchdog finds more evidence of rigged contracts. A federal watchdog is blowing the whistle again on a series of  cooked contracts. Frank Brunetta, the procurement ombudsman, says he found more evidence that  the Canada School of Public Service rigged contracts to make sure they went to  favoured suppliers.Today’s report looked into the way contracts were awarded to six  consultants, altogether worth more than a million dollars. Read more:  http://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/federal-procurement-watchdog-finds-more-evidence-of-rigged-contracts-1.1192448

.

Now how many of the crooks will actually go to jail and why not? So, why aren’t we all  still now seeing the Quebec, Federal governments, police laying now more and more criminal charges especially to all the corrupted  persons in the businesses and the governments and also suing all of  these corrupted officials, persons, construction and engineering companies millions of dollars in compensation and penalties? and for their  tax evasions too.. why should any of them now   even be allowed to keep any of the profits of corruptions?

.

Yes, we all can easily know that corruption has even plagued Quebec ( not just Ontario too)  at multi levels in City Halls. Hospitals, etc., from the top down to the bottom and for a very long time over 50 years.. Obviously nothing has changed.. because the watchdogs did nothing good about it.. the police, RCMP included also were, are themselves as bad as ever here.. the fiascos go on and on.. Money generating Speeding and parking tickets were their main Police occupations it seems.   It is sad that Job preservation was too often the false reason why most of the ostrich  employees also had went along with the vast corruptions instead of opposing it.. all it took for evil to triumph was for the good people to do nothing about it. 

” Turns out that every aspect of Quebec public service is completely corrupt. Unfortunately, it is not just the city of Montreal that needs more investigation, it is:

- the SQ for giving themselves illegal bonuses and shutting down investigations that touch the “gouvernement national”.

- The MUC police force, and their contracts between Yvan Delorme and BCIA

- Union Montreal. It appears that at their fundraisers, they sometimes keep part or all of the money.

- We can look forward to “the corruption float” this Sunday which will be led by Montreal’s new mayor mayor Michael “I swear I am not under investigation” Applebaum.

PS: Merci to the SQ for tipping off the mayor about current UPAQ investigations.  Obviously nothing has changed..”

Ontario Provincial Police are investigating allegations of corruption and conflict of interest levelled against elected officials in the town of Collingwood, a popular ski and summer destination northwest of Toronto. A number of citizens have formally complained to the OPP about what they say is a lack of transparency involving a number of town deals — and the relationship some elected officials have with a prominent local lobbyist and consultant, former Liberal MP Paul Bonwick Bonwick is the mayor’s brother. He is also close family friends with the deputy mayor. As well, sitting councillor Ian Chadwick works as a contract employee for Bonwick’s lobbying and consulting firm, Compenso Communications. The complaints to police include concern that Bonwick was hired to represent a local group looking to bring a slot machine facility to town. The citizens also complained that he worked for PowerStream, which last year successfully bought a 50 per cent stake in Collingwood’s public utility company Collus. They are upset that no one on council disclosed Bonwick’s business involvement; nor did anyone on council declare any potential conflicts of interest. Read More

” MONTREAL — A Notre-Dame-de-Grâce businessman who raised funds for the Union Montreal party said he has been unfairly accused of having Mafia ties and making millions thanks to zoning changes under Mayor Michael Applebaum, when Applebaum was mayor of Côte-des-Neiges—Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough. A Radio-Canada report suggests Lee Lalli, who owned a site at Côte St. Luc Rd. and Décarie Blvd., profited from rezoning that saw the sale price of the land soar from $50,000 in 2003 to $4.5 million in 2007. The report also suggests Applebaum, who was borough mayor until becoming Montreal mayor in November, shared privileged information with Lalli by discussing the possibility of building a new borough hall on the site.

MONTREAL — Union Montreal did not declare a $1,000-a-plate fundraising dinner businessman Lee Lalli says he held at his office for Mayor Michael Applebaum in August 2009, while Applebaum was still in the party. On Thursday, an aide to Applebaum confirmed that the dinner took place.. Lalli said the dinner, to which he invited local construction entrepreneurs, garnered cheques for Union Montreal from 20 guests.   It was one of two $1,000-a-head fundraising events Lalli organized for Union Montreal, which lost its majority on city council in November after its leader, Gérald Tremblay, resigned as mayor. The first fundraiser, also attended by 20 people, was held in August 2003 at La Cantina restaurant on St. Laurent Blvd, Lalli said. Union Montreal reported in its financial statements that year that it sold 12 tickets to the event for a take of $12,500.

Dr Arthur Porter of the MUHC a wanted fellow now currently faces a raft of criminal charges arising from the awarding of the $1.3-billion super hospital contract. Arthur Porter has been replaced as the man in charge of a long-delayed, multimillion-dollar Caribbean cancer centre over concerns about his health and the allegations of fraud he faces in Canada. The controversial former head of Canada’s spy watchdog is caught up in a number of allegations swirling around a billion-dollar Montreal mega-hospital development. The Canadian government is now trying to extradite Porter — a medical doctor who has been self-diagnosed with cancer — from the Bahamas. “Corruption: Quebec’s greatest natural resource. It’s everywhere.”

Daily on the news we all now do read about perversity done by perverse, corrupted politicians, civil and public servants, cops and now even professionals – Doctors and Engineers. “Developers, politicians, lawyers, civil servants and throw in the Police for good measure. If that isn’t a sure recipe for corruption I don’t know what is?”

It is not just in Quebec that we have now had corrupted officials for decades. it is still a Canada wide event, it even happens cause “they see Conservatives getting away with this stuff every day of the week” ” We have had this conflict of interests, corruptions in every city/town in Ontario… it is just too often that the insiders who know about it, none feels safe so that they can say much about it as they could lose their job and/or live in fear of verbal or physical reprisal, both in in the large towns. “I would like to see the OPP start at the top with the Ontario Liberals, then work their way down and I would like to see the same with the RCMP with our federal government.” But are there enough ‘honest’ and integrity bound’ cops able to do this honest, decent investigation? as sadly it seems that they too have their own corruptions..
.
When next even found rarely guilty the offenders tend to get a mere slap on the wrist falsely and why? Rather” If found guilty put the offenders in jail. No more gentle wrist rapping for corruption in government and politics.”

Alberta’s Auditor General’s report, recommendations are significant Canada wide, deal with decades old problem

.

1-canada-quebec-flag

An effective GOVERNEMNT cost control framework ensures that  no one rewards themselves at public expense, to make sure  the public is getting the most for its money, make sure that all expense and travel claims are appropriate and handled with a high level of transparency and accountability. And here too an example needs to be made of all those PERSONS who abuse the expense account or sign off on illegitimate expenses by even make such acts criminal plus having the guilty individual return the stolen money. Thousands or millions of dollars abused  TOO OFTEN are an enormous amount of money, and to not have adequate, stringent cost controls in place by now  is an unacceptable  failure of leadership on the part of the governments, ministers, mayors, administrators .  

.

Last year, it was revealed that former AHS financial officer Allaudin Merali, while working for Edmonton’s now-defunct Capital Health Region, charged taxpayers almost $370,000 for pricey restaurant meals, to fix his Mercedes Benz and to hire a butler. http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/arts-and-life/life/health/alberta-health-dinged-taxpayers-for-private-plane-ride-realtor-fee-auditor-190880421.html

EDMONTON — Alberta’s auditor general and Alberta Justice launched a $2.4-million probe into the Office of the Public Trustee after a senior trust officer was fired for allegedly stealing more than $120,000 from a trust he was administering. The revelation is contained in auditor general’s   report,  which also found Alberta Health Services (AHS) exercised lax controls in reimbursing 26,000 employees for spending during a 17-month span in 2011-12. “The fact that the control systems essentially have failed over that period have  cost this huge amount of public resources,”

Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013  The province of Alberta released the most recent report from the Auditor General – which included dozens of recommendations meant for three different provincial departments. Auditor General Merwan Saher passed the 117 page report on to the provincial government in early February.The report included a total of 33 recommendations is meant to increase accountability for Alberta Health Services, the Office of the Public Trustee, and a number of post-secondary institutions. For AHS, Saher said the organization needs to place tighter controls on expenses, and guidelines for staff to follow when it comes to travel and living expenses. According to the report, AHS spent more than $100 million on travel and hospitality over 17-months.The report outlined a number of incidents where guidelines were not followed.In one case, an AHS staff member was found to have charged taxpayers for flying his own plane – without an explanation as to why the official couldn’t take a commercial flight, or how the rate charged for the private flight was competitive.In another case, one unnamed facility used taxi cabs to transport patients to their homes, some of the charges ended up totaling more than $300 – also, without an explanation.  The only recommendation outlined in the report for AHS was for officials to tighten controls over expense claims, credit card transactions and other travel expenses by improving how charges are analyzed and documented, improve education and training of staff for compliance with expense policies and monitoring expenses and reporting results to the board.The rest of the recommendations, including those for the Office of the Public Trustee and for a number of Alberta post-secondary institutions, can be found online.  Read more: http://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/ag-report-outlines-recommendations-for-health-authority-1.1154218#ixzz2Kk42rXz8 

.
Now   why is this above  finding and related recommendations so important to all Canadian taxpayers the increased accountability now for  all  civil and public servants, cops, RCMP,  politicians, senators? any group that gets government funding too. or what you falsely still do not  think that most other regional boards, sections, they  do not do the same thing, abuse the tax payer’s money unrestrained now too, yes all the other regional governmental executives managers, departments?  Follow the money trail is still the oldest valid rule of Journalism, cost control too.
.
It is a sad reality that much too many now Politicians, civil and public servants, RCMP , Cops, City Hall workers, managers do abuse their expenses,  on their out of town travel and living expenses and  here also they do  even make too many quite unnecessary out of town and/or out of the country travel now too. How do I know this firsthand? In one city alone 3 city hall departmental managers boasted to me that they did it and their associates too.
.
By the way the people who make false expense statements are also guilty now of tax evasion

The Alberta newspapers, News Media they now themselves too are perverts, patronizing criminal accomplices

 

Now you yourself can quickly note the dual morality of the Alberta News media, their hypocrisy, for they do not oppose   speeding tickets, but were quick to cry foul about the drunk drivers getting arrested and losing the use of their  cars.

Between Friday and Monday, Alberta authorities issued 5,140 tickets for a variety roadway offences ranging from impaired driving to speeding. The previous year, about 3,290 tickets were handed out.  Only 250 were related to drug and alcohol related charges  http://www.calgaryherald.com/news/Drivers+rack+more+holiday+tickets/7056702/story.html#

.
The Alberta newspapers, News Media and Governments too they now themselves too are perverts, patronizing criminal accomplices when they agree with Alberta’s false, high money generating traffic quotas, money grab agenda.
.
Imagine this Canada’s clearly perverse Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Alberta Ministers go along with this perversity, teh false letter of the law approach in the very sad province. They all under they pretense of caring about highway safety the money hungry, promotional oriented, perverse cops do now go overboard in Alberta even for decades, they are criminals, vultures in fact..
.
It’s undeniable that even minor traffic tickets can lead to very significant  higher insurance premiums very profitable for the insurance industry.  
.
But in reality still  it is an undeniable fact that speeding causes less than 15 percent of serious accidents, but impaired driving causes the majority of the accidents, 70 percent, .. Now  if the majority of the accidents are caused by drunk, impaired drivers then the majority of the tickets should have been failry  issued to them now too..
.
by the way how many drunk cops were also arrested for  driving home drunk for the tavern, an undeniable continuous occurrence too… what none?

 .. who says crime does not pay???
Short yellow light times at intersections have been shown to increase the number of traffic violations and accidents. Conversely, increasing the yellow light duration can dramatically reduce red-light violations at an intersection.Some local governments have ignored the safety benefit of increasing the yellow light time and decided to install red-light cameras, shorten the yellow light duration, and collect the profits instead. AND WHAT JUST BY ACCIDENT ONE OF THE CITIES WOULD BE IN ALBERTA TOO?

The Conservatives are really now no better over the Liberals in Canada

This is getting ridiculous.  When it comes to punishment for criminal, unacceptable bad  acts Canada for the last 50 years even has double standards, one for the ordinary Joe Blow and one for the Professionals, the  Professionals – Doctors and Nurses, CEO’s, Managers, Accountants, Police they  all  tend to get off Scott free, rewarded even..
.
For example do take the case of the Hamilton hospital shit disease where people got sick an died no one got punished for neglecting to clean properly the toilets, hospitals again.. or take the case where Alberta health system CFO quits, after his lavish spending revealed and supposedly will get a full severance package too.. Employee gets fired for misconduct and doesn’t even qualify for UI. If an Executive gets fired for misconduct, and so what they next do get to keep the villa, the Lexus and also get   a fat severance package. 
.
Even in Alberta  the feeling of entitlement with the too often western separatists is  similar to those facts also we hear about often happening  in Quebec, Ontario as well. Recently in Quebec at the Concordia University many professionals got ridiculous severance packages all at tax payer’s expense too, where “two long-time donors to Concordia University announced   they are no longer giving money to the school, in protest of what they consider financial mismanagement.” “Accusations of internal, university financial mismanagement have dogged not only Concordia, but other Quebec institutions in recent years as well. It has been an issue of contention in the ongoing tuition hike debate, with student leaders and researchers arguing that if institutions managed their public funding more responsibly, universities would not be “underfunded,” or in such dire financial straits. Notable examples include the failed Université du Québec à Montréal Îlot Voyageur project of 2005 – which involved the resignation of rector Roch Denis with a $173,000 severance package, a $200 million loan in-trust from the Quebec government, and more than $185 million in cost overruns – as well as a McGill’s 2009 $321,471 severance package to former VP Ann Dowsett Johnston. Since 2000, Concordia has paid out millions in settlements to departing administrators, dismissing two presidents since 2007. In 2010, Judith Woodsworth, received a $703,000 separation package two years into her five-year term as university president. Read more: http://www.montrealgazette.com/business/Concordia+loses+long+time+donors+because+financial+mismanagement/6960635/story.htm 
.
When are these absurd  big severance packages going to stop too? Also now if Joe Blow had stolen from the company at work he in contrast shortly would go to jail or at the very least get fired quickly  with no compensation.  This resignation of Allaudin Merali in Alberta  even came just weeks after he was hired by Alberta Health Services. Now firstly  how someone like this can get hired when he left Ontario under similar circumstances?The bad managers who continue to hire these bad individuals  need now also to be held to account and fired too.    Also how can someone get severance when they have only been with an organization for three weeks?    It’s not the first high-profile departure   Three years ago, he had even left the  Ontario’s health system apparently under a similar dark cloud.In the fall of 2010, then-CEO Stephen Duckett and the same agency had parted ways after he rebuffed reporters at an emergency meeting by saying he was busy eating a cookie. Alberta Health Services later revealed his severance amounted to more than $735,000.
.
*** update***  The former CFO of Alberta Health Services will not receive a severance  after his contract was terminated when details of his expenses were exposed. AHS now plans to publicly post the expenses of the CEO and other senior  officials.
.

“OTTAWA — Members of Parliament aren’t able to properly scrutinize the government’s spending plans and are effectively rubber-stamping billions of dollars in proposed spending without due diligence, a new report says. The issue, the all-party parliamentary report explains, is MPs are expected to perform detailed scrutiny of the government’s spending plans, or “estimates,” but the committees receive little opportunity to review them and are only giving them “perfunctory attention” at best. “http://www.canada.com/news/dark+over+government+spending+parliamentary+report/6937710/story.html

Even the protection of abused seniors in Hospitals, old age homes in Quebec as well  is also non existent cause they also do have a pretentious ombudman, Ministers

They all do need in principle, to stop rewarding bad behavior and seriously manage our money a lot better. All clearly even another example of the Conservative government’s immoral double standard now as well and not just the Liberals…

Very Wide Regional Health discrepancies

 are unacceptable also

When you and your parents start to get much older you start to have more significant experiences it seems even with Medicare. politicians, civil and public servants too.. You find out sadly how good the services are when you do need them. We have one Medicare system in Canada, but the quality of services differs not only by provinces, cities, but even by local regions.. and why is that?

For example in the city of Montreal I have too often now even been to both realy bad Hospitals and realy good ones.. the bad ones include the Verdun Hospital and the West Island Hospital, McGill Royal Victoria Hospital where the pretentious bad hospitals and even bad doctors provide mostly lip service to health care but they still do not address the persons real medicare problems, while the good ones, the good hospitals such as Hospital Notre Dame, Hospital Hotel Dieu, and I have been seen by good doctors, they do seriously try to help a persons to have all of their health problems resolved. Even in one Hospital such as the Montreal General Hospital you can have a significant variation in the quality of services from one medical department over another. I have often wondered why such a great discrepancies exists, and obviously some local health managers are much better over the others.

Viciously we need a consumer evaluation system, such as the ones in some universities where you graded your own professor annually, even for the doctors and the hospitals.. And we still do need to have much better hospital ombudsman who will incorporate real changes.. so things can change for the better…

..ASAP

Now I have dealt with the CLC clinics in 5 different regions and only 2/5 were acceptable.. the CLC in Montreal,  Rosemount has been excellent, they weekly do effectively visit my mother and check up on her..

Alberta ‘s RCMP fiasco as well.

 

Anyone who has been even  to a traffic court especially in Alberta can too often visibly see that the justice system, the police, judges, prosecutors are all stacked against the accused citizens, for the justice officers are in cahoots… it is perversity and professional abuses.

On Nov. 7, 2009, Kropielniski stopped a suspected drunk driver on the main street of Bonnyville, a town of 6,000, about 200 kilometres northeast of Edmonton.Kropielniski arrested 21-year-old Eric Oullette, an oil-field worker from Cold Lake. Oullette blew 0.14, nearly double the legal blood-alcohol limit and was charged with drunk driving.Oullette admits he was unco-operative with Kropielniski and repeatedly goaded the officer by criticizing the quality of policing in the town.There is no sound on the video, but Oullette can be seen sitting on a chair in a detachment hallway. He gestures once with his arm toward Kropielniski who is standing over him, effectively facing the wall-mounted camera.Kropielniski suddenly grabs Oullette with both arms and pushes him sideways off the chair to the floor. He then appears to hit Oullette’s head against the cinder-block wall, then picks him up by the front of his shirt and pushes him up against the wall. The two men are face to face.“He’s trying to intimidate me, trying to get me to agree with him.” Oullette said. “And I must have said something wrong. He pretty much loses it on me.”While an auxiliary constable grabs Oullette in a chokehold, Kropielniski delivers two elbow hits to Oullette’s head. Oullette is then bent double by the two officers.“Basically, I was just trying to stay on my feet, because if I hit the ground I don’t know what is going to happen,” Oullette said.once local Bonnyville prosecutor Jeff Rudiak viewed the tape, he dropped the drunk-driving charge. In the prosecution of Bonnyville RCMP Const. Shawn Kropielniski for the assault of Eric Ouellette.the RCMP continued to support Kropielniski and a criminal record would not affect his continued employment with the force.After accepting the joint submission, White sentenced Kropielniski to a one-year suspended sentence. Despite two charges of assaulting prisoners in custody, the RCMP put Kropielniski back on active duty in Bonnyville. But after CBC began its investigation, Kropielniski was assigned to desk duty, where he remains while he awaits an internal disciplinary hearing. “The police are professionals.They’re supposed to have more self-restraint and be more in control of their emotions than the average citizen.“So if they’re not, and the department of justice of the province of Alberta views this as a minor matter to be minimized instead of to be presented honestly to the judge, then I think that is a deep concern. The problems may not be just one rogue RCMP officer and one incompetent or duplicitous Crown attorney. The problems may be more systemic.” Schaefer said Alberta Justice clearly applied a double standard in this case. If a citizen had committed such an assault, “there would be very serious consequences.” University of Manitoba Prof. Arthur Schaefer, an expert in justice ethics, http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/story/2011/06/20/edmonton-rcmp-crown-prosecutor.html

… The RCMP legend again  has gone down the toilet. and so have the justice ministers..
