PROFESSIONAL, MEDICAL INCOMPETENCE’S

WE ALL SHOULD KNOW BY NOW IN REALITY THAT JUST CAUSE A PERSON IS A SUPPOSED PROFESSIONAL IT STILL IS NO GUARANTEE THAT HE OR SHE IS ACTUALLY FULLY COMPETENT, NOR DOES A UNIVERSITY DEGREE INSURE THAT NOW AS WELL.

ANY UNIVERSITY DEGREE OR PROFESSIONAL BODY REGISTRATION EVEN DOES NOT INSURE THAT THE PERSON IS HONEST, OR MORAL NOW AS WELL. RATHER THEY STILL TOO OFTEN NOW EVEN BE MAY BE QUACKS, IMPOSTERS, PRETENDERS. LIARS, EVEN CHARGE CARD HAPPY DOCTORS OR MONEY HUNGRY LAWYERS.

For example: Recently I visited a local family doctor to present my two medical problems. As usual I had to wait at least 2 wasted hours before he came to examine me. While waiting there I had now noticed some older Canadian Medical Journal magazines and where while I had been examining and reading them now I next even had located descriptions, medical diagnosis, recommended treatment of my own medical problems.

When the family doctor finally came I explained my medical problem to him and he next to me had stated that he was unfamiliar with the problems and thus he was unable to deal with them, and so he would have to refer me to some else. So next there I had showed him the appropriate references I had discovered from his own medical journal, and the doctor now was visibly embarrassed.

Obviously like many other doctors that I have often encountered, about 100 so far, he sadly has not kept up to date with his own PROFESSIONAL medical education and this is really unacceptable.

It seems all family doctors as well should be made to attend mandatory medical updating courses with a written exam for at least one month every 2 to 4 years. I had been seen by 8 doctors and the skin problem was not rare, it is rather common but it seems 3/4 the doctors did not recognize it. Unacceptable

IT IS NICE TO HAVE LAWS, STANDARDS AS WELL BUT UNENFORCED AS THEY NOW TOO OFTEN ARE THEY ARE ALL USELESS THEN.

Now they too do clearly now do need better managers and better employees.. Canada’s main hiring problemis is that too often rhe general manager tends to hire friends or friends of friends as subordinate  managers.. all meaning next that you cannot disipline or manage any of  them, or fire them.. so the subordinate employees also tend to be aware of it too..they also next tend to do the minimum amount of work that they can get away with and not be blamed for.. so the firm’s or department whole productivity is next at an all time low and eventually all of\these now bad firms, departments  next do pay for it, their repuation goes down,  even their stock prices go down, and their profitability as well, etc Firing now next\ the general manager  does shake up the pecking order and ir tends to get an increase of the profitability, productivity

The reality about Canada’s Medicare “The Untouchables”.

The undeniable root, major problem with Medicare in Canada now is not firstly the lack of more citizens, public, taxpayer’s money money and/or the supposed need for more money for the medical professionals but rather it is certainly the past, present poor quality of medical services provided even by the mostly unregulated and unsupervised medical doctors themselves, and the nurses too now,  firstly, in reality.. bad management is no  still still excuse.

“Unfortunately, the relatively nonexistent oversight/ monitoring in the medical community means that doctors are almost entirely self-monitoring. This is a completely untenable system to maintain since it puts the safety of the public in the hands of some that may be irresponsibly trying to cut corners and save money on washing equipment by hiring fewer staff. Shouldn’t the public demand more? Why isn’t there a general demand by the public for the College of Physicians to increase their monitoring of doctors (at the collective cost of doctors) especially when it comes to equipment cleaning and other areas where doctors trying to increase their bottom line may threaten the public’s safety. This is just common sense. If you are disconcerted with this story, assert yourself and implore the College of Physicians and your local MP/ MPP and city council to mandate/legislate the public’s safety into law by making accountability and scrutiny of the medical establishment the norm rather than once every 10 years and 7,000 patients!”
http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/story/2011/10/18/ottawa-clinic-hotline-calls.html  

In reality it still does even take even years for me in Canada to get my own major, serious medical problems eventually and properly addressed even. That was true about my heart problems and that was next even true about my skin problem. It took about a year and half of visiting many different doctors to finally get serious attention and solution to my skin problem, but I now had gone through 4 doctors and 2 dermatologists even.. and I am still not sure the skin problem is resolved or what it is.. different dermatologists even give medical diagnosis and different options, opinions here too and when can I still get the real medical help I need, asked for, rightfully deserve now too. I have now also tried at least a half a dozen of ineffective prescribed different medicines for the same skin problem all the while the skin problem worsened now too..

Now most of the doctors I have in the last 2 years encountered they did not admit they were incompetent, but they did not know what my skin problem was, as anyone ignorant just looking at my skin infection knows it could be one of at least 200 different things.. so they all next even mostly tried a trial and error approach , by saying TO ME “try this sample amount off medicine for a couple of months.. and let us see next what happens”, and nothing good happened too, and who pays for this trial and error medical program and drugs? the patient and the taxpayer OF COURSE.. also next many of my doctors gave false excuses too why their trial and error approach it did not work, and why they did not bother to have a skin biopsy done on me firstly. ..so their medical approach failed and they next said to me that it was not their fault but my fault.. . it was due to my body… while the others next had said doctors are not gods.. but all of the still bad the doctors all still got paid for their failures and even the pharmacies now too.. Unacceptable. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/07/14/misleading-medical-help-by-doctors-pharmacies-corporations-governments/

By the way I had even worst quality of medical services many times when I took my senior mother and my senior father to many, different medicaL doctors and I HAD  told them what my parents medical problem but too many doctors firstly even refused to deal with ALL OF them or had refused do anything at all but said falsely that the problem should be looked after by some else, and they did not even send them to that medical person.  This unacceptable medical or family Doctor’s pick and choose approach towards what he or she will do and will not do in helping any patients is also a very unacceptable approach.. they these bad  doctyors now are all now  were certainly guilty of neglecting a sick patient and violating their own medical code of ethics, standards.

Now what about getting real positive actions on all of these matters and not rather still more buck passing, excuses, lies or are the Conservatives not any better over the Liberals, but rather continue to do the same bad things or do nothing good about it now?

The dishonest, pretentious Quebec Hospital Ombudsmen, Health Ministers

Canadians overwhelmingly want better value for their health-care dollars, within the
publicly funded system. 

Good, properly managed Medical doctors, GOOD Hospitals ESPECIALLY are all now needed for a good reasons for they are an absolute essential part of all treatments of major diseases, sickness. Going even first to a pharmacy and self medicating oneself, trying solely to treat the symptoms is also an absurdity for the mostly money hungry pharmacies are here to sell you any possible thing that may help you, without knowing the exact personal medical root problem and you mostly not only have wasted loads of money, have become falsely addicted to pharmacies too, but you still need to go to a good doctor.

A Hospital triage nurse even cannot replace the doctor even in the emergency room diagnosis. A Montreal Hospital triage nurse discharged me as perfectly healthy and yet the next day I shortly I had to return and I had required an emergency quintuplet heart by pass surgery. When you have a serious illness, not only is a nurse useless to help you diagnose and/or deal with the problem but now so too often is your family doctor useless as well, thus you do need to go to the specialists found mostly at a hospital clinic. And there you too will next find out what the quality of the medical services is really like, and not always all good. Such as the much too many pretentious medical doctors at the Verdun Hospital and the Montreal West Island Hospital who discharge too readily sick patients even without adequate medical follow up.

If I personally do make the time and effort to detail a written complaint about my own witness of the poor quality of medical services from the medical professionals in the hospitals now next the Quebec Hospital Ombudsman is obligated first to acknowledge my complaint and to honestly investigate the matters and next to finally reply to it’s detail but in reality now I have never seen it so now in the last 2 decades and not even in 6 different Montreal Island Hospitals, and especially never next even also from the offices of Quebec Health minister now as well, and all of that is always unacceptable.

We recently had received continual good medical services in 5 out of 6 departments of the Montreal St Luc hospital”s departments. Imagine this now if I do instead of a letter of complaint now do write a letter of appreciation I will now get a quick thank, response in writing though.. I have yet to get over many years now too even a valid acknowledgement of my detailed written complaints from the federal or provincial health Ministers or their offices even.

1 Now the first thing the too often the dishonest, crooked Quebec Hospital Ombudsmen generally does is firstly she refuses to hand me a complaint form, she tries to dissuade me from writing the compliant, by her promising falsely to deal with the matter anyway.. dream on.. she firstly and wrongfully wants no record of my detail complaint on file.
2: The second thing they do if I do anyway file a written complaint is they may acknowledge some of the complaints, but they generally next never do act upon them, nor review them in full.
3: The third thing they may do is now acknowledge my complaint in writing and even next lie and said they have dealt with the matters of my complaints fully when it is very obvious they did not do so at all. They mostly even have lied and have distorted the matters of my complaints.

They should not  be rather be helping, covering up for the already rich professionals, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, but they  should be rather helping the sick, the poor and needy persons more… Having such lying and immoral ombudsmen firstly is never acceptable to start of with. Now what about replacing them all with decent, honest, moral persons in reality and ASAP. The bad Health Ministers included now.

We deserve better services then what we all are getting for what we have already paid for now as well..

Medicare shouldn’t mean monopoly Globe and Mail  – ‎Aug 14, 2011‎A major problem in Canada’s $192-billion health-care system is accessibility: many patients face long queues and live in doctor-starved areas. Despite talk about patient-centred care, the system revolves around those who provide, not receive,

Only 5% of general respondents in a recent poll gave the Canadian health-care system an A grade. A new survey on consumer attitudes about the health-care system confirms that Canadians have widespread misgivings about the system. The major health care users themselves will now have the most realistic complaints. These Respondents don’t tend to believe that more money is needed, but that the existing system can be fixed so that it is more efficient, and it will offer more value for taxpayer dollars by even better management of the resources. The system can and must also now start being more responsive to the needs of an aging population. Canadians also do not want a two-tiered system, where the money hungry doctors can work in both the private and public systems such as in Quebec where the doctors do need to comply with their own code of ethics. No one can permit the doctors to straddle both sides of the fence (public and private), thereby exposing themselves also to patient neglect and to serious conflicts of interest especially when it is the tax payers, citizens who pay for most of the doctors, nurses, educational costs..

Too many bad civil and public servants

 

Me now rightfully expecting all public and civil servants, even Natalie Theoret at Revenue Quebec to do a decent, professional job does not make me to be any kind of a bad person.

Clearly an encounter with the much too many bad civil and public servant these days is like watching a really bad movie, or it is an experience like going to a really bad restaurant that leaves a really bad taste in your mouth.

One of the most common negative aspects of our civil and public servant too often these days now is their personal loss of servant hood, for they too often are no longer serving the public, citizens but are firstly, mostly serving themselves, the police, governmental and medical workers even included.

While too many of our civil and public servant are not serving the public effectively they all are still falsely, wrongfully demanding a full pay and even bigger and bigger raises now too. . Any time I hear a medical worker complaining they are underpaid I know that they are in the wrong professions for a start, as they falsely care more about earning more money over aiding the sick persons for a start too.

Another very negative unacceptable characteristic of the civil and public servant is that so many of them thy do even lie, cheat, steal, and do falsely think they are above the law, they expect that now, next they will not facing prosecution or any negative consequences. These same persons have been falsely led to believe that observing, respecting the laws applies to the others and not them. So many people are so ready to give orders to others but are not so ready to obey them themselves, or to take orders. And they too readily also do see the other persons is, faults, omissions but not their own. We have too often even noticed this false attitudes even amongst the clergies. The laws are made for and are applicable to everyone. The government itself is falsely too often responsible for this poor attitude cause it wrongfully hesitates to prosecute the bad persons, it is too soft on the bad civil and public servant. The Quebec government is known to be too soft on major criminals, bad civil and public servants and for decades already and this is always unacceptable too,..

Too many persons still falsely do readily now think that they can change others by their own mere words, desires, even though they are also failing clearly to change their own selves effectively, positively firstly. It is myth that anyone can readily make any permanent changes in others. We all should always be concentrating firstly to make positive changes in ourselves so we can thus now also readily be examples to others as to how for them to be able to make any positive changes. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2011/08/10/changes/

Mat 7:3 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.

Now when can we get more acceptable, decent employees, services at Revenue Quebec. How they badly treated me too is likely how they did treat everyone else.

We pay taxes and still get lousy services

A doctor in a local hospital falsely recently even cancelled her medical clinic so she could go to a medical symposium, all while her staff lied and falsely covered up for her too. She wasn’t interested in helping the sick persons but but clearly in only helping herself. The same doctor could not understand why she now was so often depressed as well.  https://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/02/18/she-was-selfish-self-absorbed-self-centered/

You do seem to find out the hard way what the medical care system is really like when you go to use it and really do need it, in the Hospitals, clinics and triage included now. The too often insulting, uncaring, uneducated security guards posted at the local hospitals, emergency departments too readily do tell the sick patients to shut up, to still still and be quiet for a 4 to 8 hours wait is normal. While at the same time a doctor at the local hospital told me that the hospital clinics are not a personal right but an optional privilege, service in our free Medicare SYSTEM that the Hospitals do not have to provide for the patients. Too many money hungry, self serving, self oriented medical employees in reality in Hospitals still do falsely think that the governments now do have to provide a good paying job for them so they can next do what they want, while they still do not even care about what is happening to the sick persons and this is never acceptable. It is the same old truths also such as the very healthy persons tend to not care about the sick, and the employed public and civil servants do tend to think they are now the bosses, clearly above and superiors to all others.. IRONICALLY THE SAME BAD, SELFISH, GREEDY, SELF CENTERED, MEDICAL PERSONS WHILE THEY WERE, ARE STUDENTS WANT THE CITIZENS TO PAY ALL OF THEIR MEDICAL EDUCATIONAL COSTS so they can next get rich and even abuse, neglect us, them.

It seems the people at the local city hall have found out a solution to their too often cost ineffective and wasteful mismanagement of their employees and that is to put money tolls on the roads and to make a special tax grab, by putting taxes at the pumps for all of the automotive gas purchases, or by increasing the number and cost of the traffic tickets and by laws now too. They want to do the same thing for the too often poorly managed medical services.. Only the fools would let them do this as well.

More and more tax grabs from the citizens clearly already over taxed tend not to improve anything but tend to be merely putting more money into buckets full of unplugged holes. What is seriously needed rather is to first fire all of the cost ineffective, useless managers of the public services and to now replace them with decent, honest, competent, hard working persons.

The useless MEDICAL quacks

All that glitters is not always gold, rather more often it is fool’s gold applies to our medical care system sadly now as well.

One of the patient’s frustrating medical approaches in dealing with the possible cures to one’s personal sicknesses is the doctor’s “trial and error approach”. Too many doctors still trying to learn at the patient’s expense. This is an approach where the doctor suggests a sample medicine, that is even generally not in a sufficient quantity to be of real help to you, and too often for an insufficient duration of time now as well, where he or she thus suggests you do try it.. Now all this approach is it too often does basically is that it just passes the buck, it gets you out of the doctor’s sight and out of his r her mind rather too often, sadly it also really too often does not really help you.

So now also because of this first, initial useless visit to thus a pretentious doctor, medical quack, who is of no help to you next the problem it escalates next to many costly different doctors visits, at least 6 doctors and even much too many times as well. This is a clearly inefficient, poor medical system and a really bad management of it now too. Paying bad doctors for their incompetence, pretentious and insufficient services still is a very and unacceptable poor waste of the taxpayer money as well. It would be a lot better if only a competent doctor was available who would recommend easily, quickly real medical solution rather.

It is a useless, ludicrous myth to state or to believe that because a Medical Doctor she or he has a University degree, is recognized by a professional body that it is all a valid proof they now are valid, competent doctors and not rather still medical fools. Jesus himself had said that by their own deeds, their own fruits you do or can tell what anyone is really like, note by what they actually do.. so when I visit a family doctor a few times and he or she is unable to help me or they send me to another useless referral they now rightfully still to me are useless quacks, charge card happy doctors, who are of no real practical, beneficial help to me. The solution to all of this poor medical services here is very simple, just have each patient fill in an online personal evaluation form, survey of the doctors actual medical help and the the health minister’s services and I am sure you will all know that at least 30 percent of the patients are still really dissatisfied with their doctors actual medical help, services.it is NO WONDER SO MANY SICK PERSONS TURNS TO THE TRIAGE, EMERGENCY WARDS IN HOSPITALS HOPING TO GET BETTER MEDICAL TREATMENT THERE, WHICH SADLY IS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE NOW TOO.

What has amazed me is the existence of the many and continual. glaring unacceptable inadequacies in our health care systems and yet no one, health ministers and administrators seems to care to do anything about it still even for decades and why is that?

It seems I too do have to make thousands of detail posts on the net too about their mismanagements, unacceptable sins, abuses, wastes of taxpayer’s monies before finally someone acts upon it.. What really bugs me is when I make a major exposition of the wrongs the governments next make a token pretentious change only. Never acceptable or enough.

Misleading MEDICAL HELP by doctors, pharmacies, corporations, governments

 

PLEASE DO TELL our mostly bad Health Ministers, Ministers of Consumer Affairs all now to really wizen up, today or replace them all ASAP

FIRSTLY TO BE OF REAL HELP TO A SICK PERSONS ONE HAS TO ACCURATELY DETERMINE THE REAL, ROOT, CAUSE OF HIS OR HER SICKNESS. And this still requires trained, real, competent medical doctors only and not any pretend doctors such as nurses or pharmacies now as well.

It is also now too obvious that the large medical and pharmaceutical CORPORATIONS EVEN THESE DAYS ARE TOO OFTEN STILL MISLEADING, LYING ABOUT THEIR SUPPORT, SERVICES, PRODUCTS for while all claiming to be here to serve the the good welfare of the citizens their SOLE AND main, primary purpose is to make for themselves only a maximum profit at all costs, even by clearly lying in the process , as they clearly too often still are not really providing fully effective medical products even.

A simple tour of the major drug stores, pharmaceutical chains will indicate to all even today that too many EVEN CLEARLY DISHONEST, MISDIRECTING , MISLEADING, COSTLY AND EXPENSIVE MEDICAL PRODUCTS AND ALL OPENLY CLAIMING TO BE OF SERIOUS HELP IN THE CURE, TREATMENT OF ALL KINDS OF DISEASES AND YET too many of THESE PRODUCTS ARE NOT PROVEN TO DO SO, THEIR OPENLY ADVERTISED DEGREE OF HELP IS SERIOUSLY QUESTIONABLE, UNSUBSTANTIATED AND EVEN TOO VAGUE AS WELL.

THE GREEDY PERSONS AND IMMORAL, PRICE GOUGING CORPORATIONS TOO OFTEN THESE DAYS ARE STILL FALSELY TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE SICK AND NEEDY PERSONS TO ROB AND PRICE GOUGE THEM. Bait the customers anyway YOU CAN to try to make a sale, profits are still THEIR too common false sales,marketing approach.. THESE CLEARLY UNACCEPTABLE LIARS, IMMORAL GROUPS ALSO EVEN FALSELY PASS THE BUCK, BY LYING AND  CLAIMING IT IS SOMEONE ELSE’S RESPONSIBILITY TO REGULATE THE PRODUCTS, SALES, SERVICES THEY OFFER.

I had recently in a drug store noticed a display of pharmaceutical aid available to help with any sickness it seems but still they firstly do nor indicate the overall effectiveness.the amount and and the actual final costs of their products to do so. This is really still all unacceptable.

EVEN THE TERM “CLINIC” ITSELF IS OFTEN MISLEADING FOR THERE ARE FIRSTLY VARIOUS DEGREES OF EFFECTIVE MEDICAL CLINICS, SOME ARE STILL VERY POORLY STAFFED AND INADEQUATE EVEN. ONLY THE HOSPITAL BASED CLINICS FIRSTLY SEEM TO BE SOLELY, FULLY PROPERLY STAFFED WITH DOCTORS AND TESTING EQUIPMENT AND ARE ABLE TO DEAL WITH THE MANY SICKNESS, DISEASES EFFECTIVELY. THE OTHER SO CALLED CLINICS ARE BUCK PASSERS.

NDP accuses government of sweeping Niagara hospital problems ‘under the rug’  Toronto Star – There is no need to rush a report into troubles including the deaths of 31 patients from a superbug at the six-hospitals in the Niagara Health System before the Oct. 6 election, Premier Dalton McGuinty said .

This is more unacceptable typical Liberal crap, people do now get murdered in hospitals and the Liberals they do try to delay it, deny it, cover it up too..

Many persons in this decade in Canada are still also getting a hospital acquired sickness and many are even dying from it still too.. It is really unbelievable that many people are dying in hospitals even because of the shit disease, c-difficile still.. a common sickness spread and escalated even because the hospital’s bathrooms also are not being cleaned adequately still and so this sickness it next spreads easily. Lazy Hospital employees are gossiping, goofing off, socializing, having a good time while patients die as a direct result now too. Poor house cleaning in hospitals is never ever acceptable. And absolutely mo one gets punished for it, not the health ministers, not the hospital administrators as well and this also is never ever acceptable

Did you ever notice how the rather too often ostrich health ministers still do generally refuse to basically address the clearly still inadequate Medicare, health system and it’s serious shortcomings?  Medicare which is like a an old, run downed, over used,vehicle that now needs long delays, loads of money , continually repair, and very expensive maintenance.

You also do find out how the bad, 9-5 Medicare system even in the major cities now is when you do go to use it, when you really do need it. You also find out the common long delays to even try to get adequate medical treatments for your minor or serious problems, serious sicknesses . And you also do find out firsthand that Medicare is not fully covered, not fully available readily for all your Medicare needs and you do find out that it is short staffed in optometrists, dermatologists, cardiologists, in many of the areas that your general practioner, family doctor generally refuses to touch, get involved in, mostly because he or she is incompetent to deal with these areas.

It is also an undeniable fact that too many seniors are poor, the do not spend enough money on food and thus get sick more easier, as well as one ages one has less strength to do house cleaning, epically elderly seniors and as a result they too easily pick up infections at home as a result as well and do pass it on to many others as well.

None of this perverse, pretense Medicare, Ministers are acceptable.

The sad unacceptable tragedies in Canada’s too often perverse medical care systems

We do in Canada have now 2 separate levels of governments, federal and provincial ones monitoring our Medicare, health care systems and neither one still  really cares about all of the citizens good welfare clearly visible by their own mismanagement and indifference. None of this is ever acceptable too!
You really mostly do find out how bad Medicare is when you do need it, yes when you go to use
it.
 

Look also now at this perversity even the main governments now do not even have an accurate, reasonable full record of the number of sick persons, citizens in Canada and as to how many of them do have diabetes, cancer, heart diseases or whatever. So how can they plan ahead or manage the Health system properly then? They cannot, they do not!

For that matter they do not even have record of the major cause of vehicular accidents in Canada per year now as well. The useless police who do the traffic accidents reports refuse to do this record keeping. But guess what they all likley do have a full record of the amount of money generated by the parking and speeding tickets in every major city and province.. what a false priority now here too.. None of this is ever acceptable too!

  

And the other tragedy is that in spite of their too often lack of their competences, unprofessionalism they the bad doctors and bad nurses they all still do get paid for it fully even , and are rarely chastised. None of this is ever acceptable too!

 
Medical Errors and neglect still too often do abound in Canada in our medical care system. Doctors do too often still neglect their sick patients, like the drive by doctor who looked into a sick patient in passing through the door as he was walking down the hallway, and the doctors do even prescribe wrong medications, use a trial and error approach while too often as I have witnessed as well the nurses do give medications to the wrong patient. Many patients even get a hospital acquired sickness as well. None of this is ever acceptable too!
The sad also still very unacceptable tragedy in Canada’s too often perverse medical care system is that not only do the  hospitals, hospital administrators, doctors, nurses too often do  fail to reveal, to disclose all of their medical care  errors, but  they still are too often poorly supervised, left on their own. None of this is ever acceptable too!
 
Even when the hospital deaths are recorded a patient who goes to the doctor or a hospital for their medical treatment and there they next really do not get their proper medical care and they do as a result die an early death at home that death is merely recorded as an ordinary death..
Why? cause too many people falsely do not care still if someone else dies.. especially the paid  hospital administrators and paid governmental officials , paid political leaders included. None of this is ever acceptable too!

.

. Liars and incompetents  is what we seem to have mostly still for managers in many of our Hopsitals and governments. None of this is ever acceptable too!

What is driving Canada’s health costs? Bad doctors, bad Nurses, bad Adminstrators.

 

So how many of you do know that even medical personnel, hospitals  administrators, doctors, nurses, technicians, orderlies need to be still supervised daily, often? As there are really good hospitals and really bad ones..

.

IT IS A SAD CANADIAN REALITY THAT TOO OFTEN THE HOSPITALS DO EVEN A PRETENTIOUS MEDICAL SERVICES, AND THE PEOPLE WHO COMPLAIN THE LOUDEST MAY TEND TO GET A BETTER SERVICE..  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/12/19/season-greetings-and/  

 https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/02/23/the-unacceptable-realities/

.

Unions, Medical Societies, Doctors and nurses falsely shut up cause they are part of the problem..    Dream all you want but next still when reality hits you it may hit you really hard.. Pie in the sky means pie in the face next likely too.. A rosy picture about doctors, nurse, medicine will not cover up the reality when you next need real medical care from the doctors, nurse,  hospitals and do personally find out too late what it is really like, too often poor and pretentious and why? Nurses, technicians, Physicians especially they generally don’t earn any more for working evenings or weekends so they choose to work only bankers’ hours  So much for the myth that Doctors became doctors cause they do care about people, they are merely greedy monetary pigs it still seems.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/12/09/all-of-the-governments-canada-wide-are-to-blame-for-perpetuating-the-health-care-mess-our-health-care-systems/

.

 It is absolutely ludicrous as we often read for any news reporter to say that getting more doctors and pay them more money or privatization will basically solve our medical care problems. There are serious other medical management areas that continually need to be revied, looked into too.
.
 As you get older you tend to have more medical sickness, problems and thus you tend to have more experiences with Hospitals, doctors, and nurses, emergency departments. For a start:
.
1 Now undeniably garbage input in means garbage output as well. If you hired a bad medical director, bad ombudsman, a bad doctor, a bad nurse, bad worker, you will get bad results next still, which sadly often is still the case.Better management of our doctors and their monitoring their actual capabilities  is still need here firstly too. . While I  personally do hold doctors as one of the most essential medical professionals it is also still firstly still absurd to say that all doctors are equally competent, capable in fact. I can honestly , safely say that 80 percent of the doctors I had encountered, dealt with in the last 50 years  were incompetent, pretentious unable to specially help me with my serious medical problems, and I had too often resort to go to elsewhere, and that means a lot of wasted medical costs as well in the process.
.
2 Now the doctors do really not only rely on their educations, experiences to adequately help their patients, but a doctor tends to be too often useless with out the proper medical support, medical laboratories personnel, and the related  medical testing now as well. And this is why most really sick people do even need to still go to the Hospital, emergency department to get the overall adequate medical services and that basic  fact will not change.
.
3: As a doctor’s temporary replacement also the demand and expectations placed on the nurses now too is unrealistic, unacceptable. Too keep their jobs and to insure raises nurses may tend to go along with their unrealistic working conditions..
.
Your basic general Hospital nurse has 3 functions.. to perform routine medical examinations on the patients, hand out their medications, and to act as orderlies meeting all of the patients needs as well.. a balancing act they find difficult to do given the number of patients they need to look after. They generally do not get adequate support personnel now in this area as well.
.
4 Finally doing nothing good about any of this will insure that  Medicare will fail overall.. and that seems to be the approach of many of our provincial, federal health ministers still too and it is still always unacceptable.
.
Useless Watchdog ready to handle ER probes
OTTAWA – A new survey says Canadians use emergency rooms more than people from 10 other countries, mainly because they can’t get access to their regular medical care during weekends and evenings.The survey — by the Health Council of Canada in conjunction with international groups — shows that nearly half the respondents who went to emergency rooms in the past two years could have been treated at their usual place of care, if service had been available.By contrast, in Germany, only a quarter of respondents said they were stuck going to emergency because no one else was available after hours.Canadians also rank at the bottom when it comes to landing a doctor’s appointment the same day or next day when they get sick or need quick attention.100 questions posed to about 20,000 randomly-selected people across 11 countries in the spring of 2010. The questionnaire was led by the Commonwealth Fund.
.
Although Canadians take great pride in their country’s health-care system, they have a hard time accessing health care after-hours and are often forced to turn to emergency departments for care when their family doctors are unavailable, The Health Council of Canada’s survey, “How Do Canadians Rate the Health Care System,” used information from the Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey to determine both Canadian views of their health-care system and how Canada’s health-care system compares with those of other countries surveyed http://www.torontosun.com/life/healthandfitness/2010/11/19/16221491.html
.
You do not need health surveys, polls to confirm what I have been writing now about our Canadian health care system all year. There are too many incompetent quacks pretending to be doctors so people with serious sickness have to go to the emergency rooms at hospitals where they find out that the specialist, good doctors work generally 9-5 on weekdays only..
.
Firstly It is misleading to say that the lack of Hospital beds is the sole problem..
.
Do you even  know what the actual patient waiting time  is to see a cardiologist  for example outside of the hospital, or an eye doctor, or a  skin specialist, a knee specialist  for a start?
.
Having been to the emergency about 7 times at least this year alone with my senior father there are 3 things essential for all for a start  to note..
.
1 People who are seriously ill cannot generally  be helped by their family doctors, cause they  still generally  do not have the essential medical skills or even access to the essential medical tests..
.
Only hospital tend to have the best, essential testing equipment, medical personnel .. so the lack of emergency room or hospital beds  here  now is not the sole problem..
in reality rather the root problem is the lack of hospital staff to test the sick people 24 hours per day and seven days a week since the good hospital staff, medical technicians and doctors  tend to work 9-5 and  five days a week only.. and this is the root problem
.
Generally too many inadequate, pretentious medical test are also still being done initially too by the family doctors and emergency rooms one too.
.
2 What the lack of emergency and hospital  beds now also means though is that the patient cannot firstly get medically diagnosed and get get their blood tests done within the first 4 hours..
.
so they can if needed be put into an emergency bed for 48 hours and next if needed.. transferred to the Hospital bed for 10 days at the most where more medical  tests can be done…
.
what we here also really still do need is not more beds.. but hospital medical testing facilities to be available 7 days a week, 24 hours per day..
.
3 The lack of proven, skilled medical personnel is still problem especially, especially   in emergency rooms and elsewhere..
.
for instance inexperienced, nurses and inexperienced  doctors should not be allowed to look after  the patients in the emergency room.. Reality   rather here  we need qualified and experienced medical personnel here and   24 hours per day and seven days a week here.. which too often is not the case too…
.
4 Now I myself have been to the emergency room at least 5 times the last few years.. 
.
Note this I had 5 different doctors at the same hospital give 5 different reason for my sickness initially and none of them were right.. the actual sickness was determined only after I was admitted and serious testing done..
.
In many  other instances the emergency room could not help me or others cause they did not have at all the proper medical experts available at all in the emergency room.. since they tend to  too often concentrate, specialize in recognizing  heart attacks, cancer , broken bones mainly  it seems.
.

> You make some excellent points here.

So what then is really behind health-care inflation? The answer would seem to have more do with political decision-making than demographics. As Chris Kuchciak, CIHI’s manager of health expenditures puts it, provincial governments, afraid of runaway health costs, cut back in the early 1990s. Then, in the wake of widespread clamour over crowded emergency rooms and long waiting lists, politicians started pouring more and more money into health budgets in the late 1990s and early 2000s, he said. The fastest growing area of spending lately, by the way, is doctor incomes – projected to reach $26.3 billion this year – followed by drugs, now reaching $31 billion.  http://news.nationalpost.com/2010/10/29/maybe-the-aging-population-isnt-driving-health-costs-after-all/

 SO WHO, WHAT ARE THE MAIN  CAUSES OF OUR INADEQUATE MEDICARE (CANADA)? Bad doctors and bad Nurses, bad Hospital administrators, bad health Ministers.. and Putting more money in an unsupervised bucket full of holes was a ludicrous management approach…

and what are the solutions.. from the sole called experts.. more money? REALLY you got to be kidding now

… 

Almost since my first job after graduating from university I had learned that people are not to be trusted, THEY ALL DO need to be supervised, even Professionals, cops, civil and public servants too now,  and corruption still exists in construction, universities, Hospitals, municipalities, governments, corporations, amongst professionals and politicians as well  WHEN IT COMES TO MY PERSONAL HEALTH OR ANYONE’S I STILL RIGHTFULLY DO NOT ACCEPT PRETENTIOUS, INADEQUATE MEDICAL SERVICES. Or any neglect, abuses!  ABUSES EXISTS. If they were hiring appropriately trained staff and providing ongoing staff training and support, including criminal PROSECUTIONS AS WELL  they are not going to have this many  reported incidents  IN HOSPITALS, OLD AGE HOMES.

.

The adequate Treatment for Canada’s failing health system firstly is criminal prosecution and jail for the bad doctors, bad nurses for failing to help the sick people adequately and having enforced, Real management, supervision of doctors, nurses, medical and hospital workers.  One of the too many false reasons too many patients die in Hospitals is that almost none of the medical staff feel any personal, real, negative repercussions themselves.   

.

Just the tip of the iceberg.. and bad Hospitals, bad doctors, bad administrators like this one abound in Canada in reality.. unacceptable. Fire them all.. Public exposure and rightful prosecution of the bad, guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest, the bad persons included. Unacceptable still

It is impossible to say whether Canada’s medicare system is providing value for money because governments are making little effort to measure performance, the federal Auditor-General says.  Nevertheless, she noted that there are “significant gaps in performance reporting so, no, we don’t know if we’re getting good value for money.” For example, Ottawa will transfer $25.4-billion to the provinces and territories this year through the Canada Health Transfer. (That accounts for a little less than 20 per cent of the $128-billion in public spending on health care; private spending accounts for another $55-billion annually.) Ms. Fraser noted that those massive cash transfers come with no strings attached and little monitoring.
 
.
Citizens also now must have the right to sue the governments, and the Ministers, doctors, nurses, hospitals, administrators  for not meeting their own Health care obligations  even for their grossly inadequate provision of health care .

When a Montreal Verdun Hospital doctors, nurse often says to the  patients as I have witnessed   I cannot do anything  to help you, go to your own doctor when you go home and tell him about it, that is not providing adequate medical aid.   Just the tip of the iceberg.. and bad Hospitals, bad doctors, bad administrators like this one abound in Canada in reality.. unacceptable.

Associated Press – November 13, 2010 11:35 AM ET RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – A Richmond hospital has reopened its neonatal intensive care unit after a staph bacteria outbreak that claimed the life of 1 infant and sickened 10 others. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that the MRSA outbreak shut down the newborn intensive care unit at CJW Medical Center’s Chippenham hospital for five weeks. Hospital spokeswoman Karen Nelson says one child died.  http://www.wset.com/Global/story.asp?S=13496645

Unnecessary B.C. hospital deaths Wed Apr 7, 9:02 PM  VANCOUVER (CBC) – Two patients at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital have died after an outbreak of the C. difficile bacterium. Thirteen other patients are also infected with the so-called superbug, according to the Vancouver Island Health Authority. The authority said Wednesday that the two patients who died were elderly and had underlying medical conditions. The latest death occurred Tuesday and is suspected to be due to the bacterium, while the other patient died April 1 from a confirmed C. difficile infection. The bacterium causes flu-like symptoms and severe diarrhea. This is the third outbreak of C. difficile at the hospital in the past two years. Hospital staff are now wearing protective clothing such gloves and gowns, and cleaners are using stronger disinfectants to try to contain the outbreak. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100407/canada/canada_britishcolumbia_bc_c_difficile_nanaimo_deaths
.
Now this too common still dark ages shit disease spreading in hospitals  is mainly due to poor housekeeping, the bad cleaning of the hospital toilets, one not washing one’s hand  and one using a contaminated phone  too. Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) is the one of the leading pathogens causing hospital-acquired infection  . It may cause diarrhea, colitis, sepsis and lead to prolonged hospitalization and death.
.
PETERBOROUGH, Ont. – A hospital in Peterborough has stopped admitting patients to one of its units after an outbreak of three different bacteria. Peterborough Regional Health Centre is investigating several cases of C.difficile, MRSA and VRE. There have been 11 cases of MRSA since Nov. 5. The first of seven C.difficile cases dates back to Oct. 22. There are two cases of VRE.   Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a bacterium responsible for several difficult-to-treat infections in humans. It may also be called multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or oxacillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (ORSA).  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/101113/national/bacteria_outbreak
.
MRSA is, by definition, any strain of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria that has developed resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics which include the penicillins (methicillin, dicloxacillin, nafcillin, oxacillin, etc.) and the cephalosporins. MRSA is especially troublesome in hospitals where patients with open wounds, invasive devices and weakened immune systems are at greater risk of infection than the general public. MRSA strains of bacteria can be found worldwide. In general, healthy people with no cuts, abrasions, or breaks on their skin are at low risk for getting infected. However, the bacteria can be passed from person to person by direct contact with infected skin, mucus, or droplets spread by coughs. Indirect contact also can spread the bacteria; for example, touching items like towels, utensils, clothing, or other objects that have been in contact with an infected person can spread the bacteria to other uninfected individuals. One major problem with MRSA is that occasionally the skin infection can spread to almost any other organ in the body. When this happens, more severe symptoms develop. MRSA that spreads to internal organs can become life threatening. Fever, chills, low blood pressure, joint pains, severe headaches, shortness of breath, and “rash over most of the body” are symptoms that need immediate medical attention, especially when associated with skin infections.
.
Normal skin tissue in people usually does not allow MRSA infection to develop; however, if there are cuts, abrasions, or other skin flaws such as psoriasis (a chronic inflammatory skin disease with dry patches, redness, and scaly skin), MRSA may proliferate. Many otherwise healthy individuals, especially children and young adults, do not notice small skin imperfections or scrapes and may be lax in taking precautions about skin contacts. This is the likely reason MRSA outbreaks occur in Hospitals and in diverse types of people such as school team players (like football players or wrestlers), dormitory residents, and armed-services personnel in constant close contact.  People with higher risk of MRSA infection are those with obvious skin breaks (for example, patients with surgical or traumatic wounds or hospital patients with intravenous lines, burns, or skin ulcers) and people with depressed immune systems (infants, the elderly, or HIV-infected individuals) or those with chronic diseases (diabetes or cancer). People with pneumonia (lung infection) due to MRSA can transmit MRSA by airborne droplets. Health-care workers as a group are repeatedly exposed to MRSA-positive patients and can have a high rate of infection if precautions are not taken. Consequently, health-care workers and patient visitors should use disposable masks, gowns, and gloves when they enter the MRSA-infected patient’s room.
.
One of the too many false reasons too many patients die in Hospitals is that almost none of the medical staff feel any personal, real, negative repercussions themselves. One of the best way that I have discovered to get to know what a  person is really like, is work with him  just for one whole day,.. and   what   you now saw next.. lying, bullying, control freak..
 .
Many persons who are fed up with the APPARENT INADEQUACIES even in the socialized medicine would like us to believe that a private medical system is better… and that is mere wishful thinking.. for even in a private system there are too often the same inadequacies, even for the same reasons, the apparent lack of supervision of medical personnel and services, and   Profit-hungry hospitals are also overcharging consumers an estimated $10 billion a year in the US. Some deliberately work to keep bills indecipherable.  That’s what Nora Johnson found when her 56-year-old husband, Bill, underwent hip-replacement surgery in 1999. The cost of the operation was $25,000.   Knowing that her family would have to pay a percentage of the costs, she requested an itemized bill. $129 for a box of tissues. “Like the charge for newborn blood tests and a crib mobile. That stopped me in my tracks,” recalls Johnson. “As far as I know, my husband never had a baby.”  But making sure that you are charged correctly can be a daunting task. “That’s what Richard Clarke found out firsthand shortly after his father died in 2000. Despite the fact that he is a former hospital chief financial officer, Clarke admits, sorting through the bills took him a year. In the end he found $2,000 in errors. And, according to a 1998 study of hospital billing procedures, they go to extraordinary lengths to discourage patients from delving too deeply into their bills.”

 .

Yes, you can buy medical insurance to protect yourselves financially against medical emergencies. But will the services, coverage be there when you need it? Nevertheless, experts still do next say reviewing your bill for overcharges is vital. “For one thing, if you are required to pay some of your hospital expenses, either as a deductible or a co-payment, overcharges will come out of your pocket.   What’s more, most insurance plans have a cap, meaning, “Money siphoned off by errors or fraud can chip away at your lifetime total,” says Tom Brennan, Blue Cross/Blue Shield’s director of special investigations. Your credit rating may be at risk too. “Hospitals have become very aggressive about collecting money,” says Nora Johnson.”
 .
Now  we all have heard the phrase “here to serve”.. but dream on if you are dumb enough to believe that.. most people still are self serving to start of with.. The world is full of self serving persons and  Liars, who even  often lie to themselves too, there are too many persons  with a hidden agenda, sometimes not too hidden ones, such as self promotion, financial gains are too often amongst the top of their goals still. Most of us tend not to believe everything we hear, but most of us are still gullible and do too often get taken in Don’t Believe Everything You Read, or see, even if it is writing,  especially if it is a preacher or a politician it now seems.. not even too many of the so called professionals.. Not just in Churches, amongst the police, politicians, civil and public servants, I have never seem so many lying, mental people in one place like I have amongst the medical workers I have dealt with this year in  in Hospitals, convalescent, old age homes who really do delude themselves too often about their self importance and the positive role they are functioning in.  When a medical professional cannot see what they are doing now is simply  so wrong they themselves do now need real professional help too.

.

Public spending on physicians has become the fastest-growing expense to Canada’s health-care system, a trend sparking growing calls for an overhaul to the payment system for doctors.” Doctors are paid for each consultation they provide or surgery they perform, which provides a perverse incentive to do more even when it may not be warranted, The incentive is to do the surgery, not necessarily to do the surgery on the person who really needs the surgery.” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/payments-to-mds-to-top-26-billion/article1776182/

Health reform, merely not just a political agenda

  
People lie to me all the time, professionals now too, Doctors, nurses, ombudsmen, lawyers, notaries, realtors, pastors, priests, cops, RCMP, Politicians, civil and public servants too.. None of it is acceptable too.
   
Uncaring, pretentious governments certainly  will still not solve the ongoing Medicare health care problems the last many decades now too   Many persons in Canada, Canada wide  are dealing with staff shortages, long wait times for surgery and overcrowded emergency wards, Even the Conservative government now has  had how many YEARS to address the  Health Care System problems. All of the the successive governments in the last 50 years have been failing in this are even year after year. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/08/11/canada-pretentious-medicare/
 https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/10/11/in-bc-also-demand-resignations-terminations/
 
“People are waiting not just for months, sometimes for years, for hip and knee replacements and other surgeries. We’re just pouring money into a black hole. We need to look at the actual system itself and fix what is not working” “ Reform, reform, reform-that’s the word politicians are constantly using when it comes to paying for healthcare. What they mean of course is “reduce”. “When politicians talk about health reform, they are usually about to gut the hell out of it. This government’s previous performance regarding healthcare has been abysmal. They have cut and cut and cut. IMHO the only reform they intend for healthcare is to reform it into a private system. “  http://www.cbc.ca/canada/edmonton/story/2010/10/24/edm-legislature-health-care.html
 
Health care reform that firstly means now having seriously a better supervision of all of  our Hospital adminstrators, doctors, nurses and now also holding them personally and criminally accountable for their errors, wrong doings. 
 
Citizens also now must have the right to sue the governments, and the Ministers, doctors, nurses, hospitals, administrators  for not meeting their own Health care obligations  even for their grossly inadequate provision of health care .

Public spending on physicians has become the fastest-growing expense to Canada’s health-care system, a trend sparking growing calls for an overhaul to the payment system for doctors.”Doctors are paid for each consultation they provide or surgery they perform, which provides a perverse incentive to do more even when it may not be warranted, The incentive is to do the surgery, not necessarily to do the surgery on the person who really needs the surgery.” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/payments-to-mds-to-top-26-billion/article1776182/   

No one  really checks on the quality, essentialness, effectiveness  of the work provided as well..
 
It is impossible to say whether Canada’s medicare system is providing value for money because governments are making little effort to measure performance, the federal Auditor-General says.  Nevertheless, she noted that there are “significant gaps in performance reporting so, no, we don’t know if we’re getting good value for money.” For example, Ottawa will transfer $25.4-billion to the provinces and territories this year through the Canada Health Transfer. (That accounts for a little less than 20 per cent of the $128-billion in public spending on health care; private spending accounts for another $55-billion annually.) Ms. Fraser noted that those massive cash transfers come with no strings attached and little monitoring.

So what then is really behind health-care inflation? The answer would seem to have more do with political decision-making than demographics. As Chris Kuchciak, CIHI’s manager of health expenditures puts it, provincial governments, afraid of runaway health costs, cut back in the early 1990s. Then, in the wake of widespread clamour over crowded emergency rooms and long waiting lists, politicians started pouring more and more money into health budgets in the late 1990s and early 2000s, he said. The fastest growing area of spending lately, by the way, is doctor incomes – projected to reach $26.3 billion this year – followed by drugs, now reaching $31 billion. http://news.nationalpost.com/2010/10/29/maybe-the-aging-population-isnt-driving-health-costs-after-all/

Racist Quebecers, JUDGES, Politicians and Ministers tend to be too soft on crimes

 

 

Racist  Quebecers, Politicians and Ministers tend to be guilty of false partiality, are too soft on crimes made by other Quebecers and they do falsely still do prefer to prosecute  the federalists, the English Canadians even those  in other provinces. Explains clearly why very  few Quebec Ministers bother to write to me for a start, and why the Quebec Police are too often lazy, no good cops… but the feds, politicians, civil and public servants included,  are not any better it seems  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/07/19/it-is-still-a-criminal-act-now/

Subject: Media doggedly pursuing political corruption
 
Media doggedly pursuing political corruption AFP – MONTREAL (AFP) – In the face of a passive political opposition, journalists are increasingly becoming Canada’s top public watchdog with searing investigative reports that have put Quebec’s government at risk and led to the demise of another, observers say.
 
The problem lies largely with the lack of strong opposition parties who are perceived as being part of the system, which is itself suspected of being somewhat corrupt, said Christian Dufour, a politics professor at Quebec’s University of Public Administration in Montreal. Consequently, a new Canadian political tradition has emerged: public inquiries, often established following intense media pressure, leading to explosive revelations at hearings. The result: extremely combative investigative journalism in a country where not making waves is a national trait.”In Canada, media often act as political opposition,” Dufour said.
 
Marc Bellemare, who was Quebec’s justice minister from 2003 to 2004, told a public inquiry on August 24 that he was inspired by Radio-Canada’s investigative journalism show “Enquete” (Investigation) to come forward with accusations of influence peddling in the province’s judicial nominations. He first alleged that the ruling party’s bagmen in those years wielded undue influence on various government nominations, including judicial appointments, when he was interviewed on the show in April, prompting Quebec Premier Jean Charest to call a public inquiry.While the facts are still being argued, the Quebec government’s image has taken a battering.
 
Another star of investigative journalism in Canada is an unassuming man who rides his bike every day to the newsroom of Montreal’s French-language daily La Presse.Andre Noel has broken stories on all sorts of scandals in Quebec, where, he says, the mafia’s foray into politics provides endless fodder for his writings. His biggest “scoop” was the discovery that an influential federal minister, Alfonso Gagliano, was once the bookkeeper of a powerful Montreal mafia boss, Agostino Cuntrera.Gagliano was forced to resign after he was implicated in the sponsorship scandal. Cuntrera was shot to death in Montreal in June.

Noel also uncovered that water meters were offered for sale to Montrealers at three times the price of those in Toronto, and that three French firms — Generale des Eaux, La Lyonnaise and Bouygues — had secretly vied to privatize the city’s water services.

But the province’s leader in investigative journalism remains Radio-Canada’s “Enquete,” hosted by Alain Gravel.

Employing nine journalists, the show has uncovered several cases of corruption and collusion, notably between politicians and the province’s construction sector.

Gravel’s most amusing discovery, he recalled in an interview with AFP, was that of a code involving golf terminology in fixing public works contracts.

“Talking about the fourth hole meant that the price offered should be four million dollars,” Gravel said.

“Our role is that of guard dog. When the police, the judiciary, the political system works well, we’re not needed. If they talk to us, it’s because there’s sand in the machinery,” he said. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/afp/100903/canada/canada_politics_justice_media

    MONTREAL – A former Liberal party official convicted on corruption charges has seen his sentence dramatically reduced by a Quebec court. The Quebec Court of Appeal ruled today that Benoit Corbeil should serve 12 months of house arrest rather than the 15-month prison sentence he was initially given for corruption and fraud. Corbeil also won’t have to repay the the Liberal Party of Canada the $117,000 he admitted to having defrauded from it. Corbeil was the director-general of the party’s Quebec wing when he faked a series of invoices in 1999 and 2000. He was sentenced in 2009 after pleading guilty to drafting the invoices and having received a $50,000 kickback in 1997. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100915/national/crime_sponsorship

    MOVE TO QUEBEC, JOIN THE LIBERAL PARTY AND GET YOUR PRISON SENTENCE REDUCED.. 

    MONTREAL – The Quebec government demanded an apology from Maclean’s magazine on Friday . This week’s cover calls Quebec “the most corrupt province in Canada,” The opposition Parti Quebecois has, in fact, protested the cover. But it also says the current Charest government makes it pretty hard for it to defend Quebec, given of its plethora of political scandals. But Maclean’s wasn’t apologizing…. the magazine said, “but we think that the articles should be read and judged based on their own merits of fair and credible journalism.” Two articles in the magazine’s Oct. 4 edition aim to answer the question of why so many political scandals originate from Quebec — looking at a lengthy list of issues that have dogged the Charest government in recent years and also examining provincial scandals since the 1930s. The article makes brief references to the three B.C. premiers who were turfed by scandal within a decade, and to the dozen members of Saskatchewan’s Devine government who were charged in an expense-account scam in the 1990s. But it offers a far more detailed examination of Quebec’s various scandals while pondering the question of why corruption should be so ingrained in one political culture. The article examines the Duplessis reign, the construction scams of the 1970s, the Mulroney era, and the federal sponsorship scandal. It also points to more recent allegations of corruption at Montreal city hall and the current Bastarache inquiry investigating allegations of impropriety in the naming of Quebec judges. “The slew of dodgy business is only the most recent in a long line of made-in-Quebec corruption that has affected the province’s political culture at every level,” Maclean’s Martin Patriquin writes. “It raises an uncomfortable question: why is it that politics in Canada’s bete noire province seem perpetually rife with scandal?” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100924/national/macleans_bashes_quebec
      
      He got what he deserved clearly  Charest blasts Maclean’s over article  The Canadian Press – Wed Sep 29, 12:53 PM    He Premier Jean Charest of Quebec can clearly now complain all he wants but the damage has been done, the horse have been let out of the barn, and the hay dispersed abroad.. too late to try to get it all back.. a good name is worth more than silver and gold as he too now will find out.. not nice to have other people despising you.. not at all.. He Premier Jean Charest now does not like the world wide negative publicity he got.. but somehow he and his MLA’s seem to still have a hard time listening and dealing with the citizens concerns.. I have yet to receive one decently reply, response to the rightful hundreds of letters of complaints I myself now have sent to the Quebec government this year alone as you all already do know as well Actions speak louder over words.. now how many crooks are the governments really going to put i jail.. or just complain about the publicity they get for doing nothing good again and again and for decades now too.

    My local Quebec MLA’s seem to be so busy chasing the mighty dollar they say they are too busy to talk to me and seem too often to forget about me often, they had not even replied to any of my last letter to them the whole last year now too..

    One of the best way that I have discovered to get to know what a  person is really like, is work with him  just for one whole day,.. and   what   you now saw next.. lying, bullying, control freak..

    One of the too many false reasons too many patients die in Hospitals is that almost none of the medical staff feel any personal, real, negative repercussions themselves.  That also includes the too many bad cops we seem to have now too, and bad civil and public servants too, bad politicians..
