Now what about all the other provinces and territories in Canada

Canada’s British Columbia’s new agency the Independent Investigations  for investigating incidents of death and serious harm involving police is now up and running. Under an agreement with B.C. police services, including the RCMP, the IIO will be called when incidents occur and will dispatch investigators to the scene. The investigators are a mix of former police officers from Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton and London, U.K., among other locations. Only officers who have not policed in B.C. for at least five years were considered. Four front-line investigators are formerly from the B.C. Coroner’s Service.  Richard Rosenthal, the chief civilian director for the office who comes to the post from police oversight positions in Portland and Denver, has  said his team is about 50-50 split between former police officers and investigators with civilian experience. Mr. Rosenthal will be in charge of reviewing case files assembled by his officers to recommend to crown whether officers should be charged. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/british-columbia/agency-tasked-with-probing-police-related-deaths-opens-doors/article4533552/

Quebec cop arrested for drunk driving, hurting someone in accident

Quebec cop arrested for drunk driving, hurting someone in accident A Sûreté du Québec officer is accused of drinking and driving an unmarked patrol car, then hurting someone in an accident. He faces charges of impaired driving causing bodily harm. Christine Coulombe, a spokeswoman for the force, said the unidentified man was arraigned Friday in Gatineau, Que. The officer was involved in a collision with another car near Gatineau shortly after midnight. A car swerved into a lane occupied by another vehicle and smashed into its right side before going into the ditch. The female occupant of the car that was hit had to be pried free by firefighters using the jaws of life before being transported to hospital. Gatineau police gave their suspect a breathalyzer test before arresting him. Coulombe would not confirm if the officer was on duty at the time of the accident.

Bad cops and Crooks are all around us and they do need to be stopped.

Exemplary Pubic exposure and prosecution of the guilty

What has now oftem amazed me is that I have often met not only immoral professionals, bad civil and public servants but visible crooks who would regulary attend a church now too and for whatever reason.. Crooks are all around us and they do need to be stopped.

Follow the money trail and you will get to a supposedly another previously unseen big iceberg of lies, thefts, deception.. the vices are all much more common over what we are lead to believe clearly as well.. for too many people do often steal to get richer by any means they can.. even executives, business persons, corporations, professionals and housewives it seems.. and the civil and public servants, politicians are not excluded here.

No such thing as a little bit pregnant when it comes to taxpayers money abuses now as well..

Exemplary Pubic exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves everyone’s best interest, it may help to reform the crooks as well.

 

 Most marriages tend to end up in divorce becaue of one spouses inability to forgive, laziness, unrealistic expecations, uncontrolled sexual lust amongst other things.. These days it is very likley that you get divorced as likley as you will get cancer or a heart disease.. and many divorces are ALSO caused even by outside influences.. such by the input of bad persons too… demons such as lawyers, bad judges, relatives and the  bad pastors too..  http://thefocusonthefamily.wordpress.com/2009/06/11/marriage-breakdown/

Civilians should probe police shootings: activists Montreal Gazette – MONTREAL – Police shootings in Quebec should be investigated by a review board composed entirely of civilians, say Quebec’s Ligue des droits et libertés and an organization that protects the rights of the homeless.The call for an end to one police force being assigned to probe shootings committed by another comes four months after a homeless man and passerby were fatally shot by Montreal police in a failed attempt to subdue the former. Ligue co-ordinator Nicole Filion said that while Public Security Minister Robert Dutil was open to changing the present system of investigating police shootings, the suggestion that a review board include police and civilians was off the mark. Filion argued that lawyers could serve on the board and not be a part of “the blue brotherhood.” “It could be (staffed by) lawyers … but civilians could also be trained. If police can be trained to conduct investigations, civilians can, as well.” The Sûreté du Québec investigated the shooting. Its findings were turned over to the province’s bureau of criminal prosecutions two weeks ago and are being studied to determine whether charges are warranted.

Ex-PMO aide Carson left Calgary school with debt.‎ Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s former senior adviser, Bruce Carson, charged thousands of dollars in personal expenses to the federally funded think-tank he headed for just over two years. Carson is already under investigation for possible influence-peddling and illegal lobbying last year in a failed attempt to land federal contracts for a shady company employing his then girlfriend, a former escort. While no one is saying exactly what personal expenses got Carson into hot water, one source says a lot of the charges to the credit card were for travel.Documents show Carson owned homes in Ontario with various girlfriends most of the time he was working at the Calgary-based institute. Carson’s history of money problems dates back more than 30 years.A lawyer until the early 1980s, he was convicted of defrauding clients, disbarred and sent to jail. He was convicted again in 1990, that time for defrauding a rental car company, and given a suspended sentence.He declared personal bankruptcy in the early 1990s, and was in serious trouble with creditors almost continuously over most of the past three decades. It remains a mystery how someone with that kind of track record could make it through all the security screening ordinarily required to become one of the prime minister’s closest advisers http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2011/10/11/pol-vp-weston-carson.html

Quebec ex-family minister charged with fraud‎., the former family minister in Premier Jean Charest’s Quebec cabinet, The Montreal-area legislator who was the most scandal-prone minister in Charest’s scandal-plagued government, has been slapped with three criminal charges in the latest ethics embarrassment to befall the government. Tony Tomassi faces charges of fraud and breach of trust. They stem from accusations that he accepted material rewards from a company that had received government money. Last year, he was forced to resign amid accusations that he had been using a credit card supplied to him by a private security firm — a firm that had received millions in government grants. In the weeks before his departure, Tomassi had also been battered with allegations of cronyism in the awarding of contracts for public day-care permits. The charges against Tomassi stemmed from the work of that provincial anti-corruption unit,

THE WAY JUSTICE, POLICE RUNS IN CANADA

All you have to do is to read and hear the Canadian new and you will know continually how the incompetent, pretentious the federal, provincial and municipal governments are and how they now do a realy bad job of managing our tax dollars, and our civil and public servants and thus you will thus never be surprised as to why a major significant portion of your hard earned money continues wrongfully to go to taxes even under the new Conservative government. Putting more of your tax dollars to cover the poor , pretentious, inadequate work of our politicians, civil and public savants is a continual waste, an attempt to fill a bucket full of large draining holes. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/04/27/undeniably-canadas-gravy-train-continues-to-cause-our-taxes-to-increase/

EVEN THE RCMP IS TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR ANY OF IT’S ACTIONS!

The Ontario Provincial Police laid a string of charges in March against CSC, including three counts of offering security services while not licensed, two counts of failing to ensure proper uniforms and one charge of hiring an unlicensed guard for the G20 and G8 summits. Many of its top executives were also charged. The private security company Contemporary Security Canada WHO WAS awarded a controversial $21-million contract to do checkpoint screening inside the security perimeters at last year’s G8 and G20 summits in Ontario has pleaded guilty to doing business without a licence ahead of the event in an Ottawa court plead ED guilty and agree do a $45,000 fine. The Crown dropped most of those charges — including the more than 20 against company officials , telling the court that it was the RCMP that solicited CSC’s business and granted the contract without considering bids from other, licensed Ontario security firms. There were concerns that the RCMP contract award was influenced by the fact a vice-president of CSC parent company Aeroguard was a 35-year veteran of the Mounties. CSC bid on the lucrative G8/G20 contract at the invitation of the RCMP 2½ months before the summit, even though both the Mounties and the company knew CSC wasn’t properly licensed to operate in Ontario under the province’s Private Security and Investigative Services Act. The Mounties solicited the bid from CSC, a Vancouver-based joint venture between Canadian security firm Aeroguard and U.S.-based Contemporary International, AND it already had expertise as the private security company for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, for which CSC landed two RCMP contracts worth a total of $164 million. Three other security firms that were already licensed in Ontario say they bid substantially less — between $8 million and $16 million — on the G8/G20 contract than the $21 million CSC was paid, but the RCMP excluded those companies for various reasons. The Mounties said for instance that Garda didn’t have adequate X-ray machines, even though it runs the screening at many Canadian airports, and that G4S had unsatisfactory references, despite the fact the company was contracted for previous international summits in London and Pittsburgh. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/g8-g20-security-firm-fined-45-000-220219728.html

a $45,000 fine for a $21-million contract is not even a slap on the wrist.. as all corruption, the abuse of THE entrusted power for any economic gains is always unacceptable

WE HAVE MET THE ENEMY AND HE IS ONE OF OURS. A CULTURE OF MISMANAGEMENT, DECEPTION, CORRUPTIONS BY ANY CIVIL, PUBLIC SERVANTS, POLICE, RCMP, GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS IS STILL ALSO NEVER RIGHTFULLY ACCEPTABLE IN CANADA. I RIGHTFULLY SAY AND DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY, TRANSPARENCY, AND NO MORE CORRUPTIONS!

You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors, from police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers  who say that bad people, bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. The hypocrtical police tend not to believe that bad cons can be helped only bad cops… and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. The RCMP maximum 10 days punishment is always absurd, permanent dismissal is what is always needed with the bad cops and their clearly bad superiors who had managed and hired them too.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/03/25/liars-mounties-misleading-everyone/

B.C. Mountie accused of punching teen had faced previous disciplinary hearing

The RCMP officers now  are not all saints..rather too often far from it.. http://www.rcmpwatch.com/

AND IF YOU THINK I TRUST ANYTHING THE RCMP SAYS OR DOES, DO GET REAL.. ESPECIALLY WHEN TOO MANY AT LEAST 50 % OF CANADA’S POLICE OFFICERS TOO OFTEN ARE DRUNK.. RCMP INCLUDED.. THEIR EXCUSE IS THEY DRINK ALCOHOL DUE TO THE JOB PRESSURES.. WELL I DO NOT USE THAT FALSE EXCUSE. WE CAN READILY KNOW THE VICES THAT OFTEN FOLLOW DRINKING ALCOHOL https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/drink-alcohol-and-die/

Drug or alcohol impaired vehicular driving by men and women and not the actual driving speed are still the key factor in the majority of the traffic accidents … http://thenonconformer.blogspot.com/2007/10/policing-facts-related-to-vehicular.html

Positive Changes need to start at the top EVEN WITH THE RCMP!  The RCMP already should already have enough skills, personnel expertise to monitor spending, the quality of all work being done by all  outside firms even to prevent collusion in contract bidding. For even the RCMP it seems relies too heavily on the decency, ethics of outside contractors , all who as we still we tend to know they cannot be trusted. The RCMP should have had readily project Project managers, project management training, such as even how to write contract specifications in a way that ensures adequate competition, to monitor spending, the quality of work by outside firms and thus hopefully it will prevent collusion in contract bidding.. These essential resources will always bring about a decrease in projects costs through better project management and provide even a better control over prices and bids that now should have been part of all RCMP bid tenders, issuing already. Project management and project engineering by far is not a new science but has already been elsewhere a standard practice for bid tendering’s, management for deadest too and is part of the finance, purchasing, legal, computer-systems departments Project managers in the rest of Canada have even already now existed the last 50 years.. so why has the RCMP now too been dragging it’s heals here for deadest even?

 

THERE ARE REASONS WHY WE DEMAND PROPER. FAIR, OPEN BIDS EVEN BY THE RCMP!

ALSO NOW ALL OF TAXPAYER’S MONEY ABUSES THAT WE DO HEAR ABOUT BY GOVERNMENTS, CIVIL AND PUBLIC SERVANTS ARE ALL UNACCEPTABLE AND ALSO LIKELY JUST THE TIP OF A BIG ICEBERG.

RCMP chose not to correct record on taser death, inquiry told Globe and Mail – VANCOUVER — Within days of Robert Dziekanski’s death at Vancouver International Airport, the RCMP knew that key information it had released was wrong, but decided it would not correct the record, one of the Mounties’ media officers testified yesterday.

 

Dziekanski inquiry: RCMP spokesman simply repeated what he was  Canada.com –  By Suzanne Fournier, The ProvinceApril 21, 2009   RCMP Sgt. Pierre Lemaitre stands in the lobby of the Braidwood Inquiry into the Tasering of Robert Dziekanski who died at the hands of police after arriving at Vancouver Airport from Poland.

 

Misinformation about Tasering purposely not corrected: Mountie. Canada.com –  By Suzanne Fournier, Canwest News ServiceApril 22, 2009 VANCOUVER – An RCMPspokesman said Wednesday that top police brass made a deliberate decision not to correct misinformation the Mounties had told the media about Robert Dziekanski’s death,

 

Heads must roll for this deceit The Province – After the Tasering and subsequent death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski, Cpl. Dale Carr of the RCMP talked to investigators, watched the Paul Pritchard video of the incident, then told Sgt. Pierre Lemaitre what to tell the media.  After the Tasering and subsequent death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski, Cpl. Dale Carr of the RCMP talked to investigators, watched the Paul Pritchard video of the incident, then told Sgt. Pierre Lemaitre what to tell the media. At that point, Sgt. Lemaitre proceeded to, either knowingly or unknowingly, tell the media (and, by extension, all Canadians) a bunch of crap. Speaking on behalf of the Mounties, Lemaitre alleged Dziekanski became violent after police arrived, that he threw chairs and a computer, that he didn’t hit the floor with the first Taser blast and that he continued to be violent and combative after he hit the ground. Not true, not true, not true and not true Or, more to the point: lie, lie, lie, lie. Speaking at the Braidwood Inquiry Wednesday, Carr testified that he was told by his boss, Supt. Wayne Rideout, that the misinformation given out to reporters about the fatal Taser incident would not be corrected publicly until the file was closed. In other words, perpetuate these lies until . . . That’s the question, isn’t it? Until the public forgets about poor Mr. Dziekanski? Until anyone who might be remotely interested in the truth has moved on to something else? Until the truth can be quietly filed away as an addendum item to yet another Taser-related fatality? Day after day, what the Braidwood Inquiry reveals about our national police force is both sad and terrifying. Where exactly do the Mounties go from here? Is regaining the public trust even possible at this point? Should every allegation of dishonest RCMP testimony be re-examined and placed under the scrutiny of its own inquiry? One thing is certain at this point: heads must roll, both of those responsible for the tragedy of Mr. Dziekanski’s death and of those who attempted to manipulate the truth of what happened.  http://www.theprovince.com/News/Heads+must+roll+this+deceit/1524800/story.html

  This not something new that I have said, rather it is old, decades old.. all now proven now by details of the murder of a polish immigrant in the Vancouver airport.. that the RCMP is pretentious, incompetent, costly, self serving, just like the justice, security ministers now too, for the RCMP does not  care about the good welfare of the Citizens as well.. they the RCMP are over paid for what they do for they generally  can’t catch the real criminals, so  they harass the ordinary citizen with quota oriented traffic tickets instead.. they have to use PR, a public relationship department approach to sell the RCMP output, because it otherwise is not  all visible at all. Did I mention also that this mainly white force is likely racist oriented as well? Cutting their budget, firing now all of their managers, sergeants is the prerequisite or totally disbanding them.  

Mounties back off taser tale Toronto Star    After months of stonewalling and sticking to a now-discredited version of events surrounding the role of its officers in the death of Robert Dziekanski, RCMP Commissioner William Elliott is signalling a change from the national police force.  Chief makes it clear RCMP will stop blaming Polish victim.  Asked if part of the problem for the RCMP has been its refusal to admit any mistakes were made, Elliott said: “Well, maybe it is.”

  
RCMP ‘sorry’ for inaccurate remarks on Dziekanski incident Globe and Mail  VANCOUVER — The RCMP has admitted that it provided wrong information to the public about the taser incident involving Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski in the first days after his death at Vancouver International Airport. But the police force has denied that it lied or deliberately suppressed information about the disturbing circumstances of Mr. Dziekanski’s death. ( RCMP is still lying..) No sooner was the apology uttered than the Mounties’ media spokesman was besieged with questions demanding why the erroneous information was ever put out in the first place.  The RCMP has faced criticism for its handling of Mr. Dziekanski’s death, which occurred after he was stunned by a police taser near the international arrivals lounge at the Vancouver Airport.  For example, in one CTV interview shown to the inquiry, Sgt. Lemaitre is shown telling interviewers that Mr. Dziekanski did not respond to the first police taser, and that he struggled and fought, even while on the ground.  However, the bystander’s videotape, which was later made public, shows that Mr. Dziekanski screamed and fell to the ground after the first taser. Sgt. Lemaitre also told reporters in October 2007 that police tasered Mr. Dziekasnki twice, when in fact four electronic shocks were delivered. And in another news briefing that October, Sgt. Lemaitre was asked point blank by a reporter if there was video of the taser struggle. Sgt. Lemaitre told the reporter there was no video, even though he himself had already viewed it. But reporters Tuesday questioned the RCMP line that Sgt. Lemaitre was simply a messenger who was handed the wrong facts. If Sgt. Lemaitre watched the amateur video, he would have seen Mr. Dziekanski drop to the ground after the first taser hit.
     

Dziekanski inquiry: RCMP spokesman simply repeated what told to say Canada.com  

  The RCMP have been heavily criticized for public statements about the Tasering and restraint of Dziekanski, for saying that three rather than four members were involved, that Dziekanski continued to be “violent” after police arrived, and that police attempted to calm him before Tasering and had to Taser him twice because he fought back.  None of those “facts” is true, as shown by the bystander Pritchard video that is shown repeatedly at the inquiry.

 Robert Dziekanski before his Taser  death0dead

RCMP apologize for giving public inaccurate account of Dziekanski death Tue Apr 21, 9:11 PM  VANCOUVER, B.C. – The RCMP apologized Tuesday for what it says was inaccurate information that misled the public about the circumstances of Robert Dziekanski’s death.
 
 
The RCMP FALSELY now had  fed us crap, had covered up for their own inadequcies ,
 
mic-key1
 
and NEXT ANY OF their apolgy is not accepted, they ALL DO need to be fired, prosecuted as well.
 
DISBAND ASAP THE RCMP AND GET A REAL PROFESSIONAL POLICE FORCE NOW   

Despite evidence the RCMP used excessive force, resulting in the man’s death, the officer who analysed their actions told an inquiry Thursday the force used was reasonable. That officer is wrong.

   
Canadians know this by now, having watched a bystander video of the RCMP’s encounter with Mr. Dziekanski Oct. 14, 2007. Some of those four officers have conceded at the inquiry that their accounts, recorded in notes, of Mr. Dziekanski’s actions at the airport were wrong. That did not dissuade Sgt. Brad Fawcett of the Vancouver Police Department from sticking to his report’s conclusions, rationalizing the use of force at the inquiry into Mr. Dziekanski’s death. Sgt. Fawcett said the RCMP perceived they were under threat, that Mr. Dziekanski was combative and, under those conditions, acted reasonably when they discharged a Taser five times.

The traveller, who was lost in the airport for 10 hours, was agitated and threw furniture, but when the RCMP arrived, Mr. Dziekanski was not combative. In fact, he turned away from them, picked up a stapler and then faced them again. The officers said he raised the stapler and moved toward them combatively, but the video showed otherwise. They said, fearing for their safety, they had to wrestle him to the ground after he was Tasered once — in fact, he flailed for a few seconds and then collapsed on the ground. The officers jumped on him, as he was still screaming, and tried to cuff him, at which point Mr. Dziekanski was Tasered again repeatedly.

Canadians have been shocked that a non-combative man with a harmless office tool was levelled by such force, with little effort made by police to understand the circumstances. Sgt. Fawcett himself said he would have reacted differently. But, he said, those officers reacted according to their perceptions of what was unfolding in front of them.

Sgt. Fawcett’s report showed that he had to ignore the evidence to rationalize the inaccurate versions of events told by the RCMP — saying the video supported their stories, when it didn’t and then discounting as “minor in nature” the contradiction between the officers’ account that Mr. Dziekanski had to be wrestled to the ground and the video that showed he collapsed.

Sgt. Fawcett ignored the obvious need for officers to explain their actions, and their perceptions, in the context of the facts of an event, of the circumstances in front of them, to justify their use of force. In the absence of that, reasonable becomes arbitrary and any use of force can be justified. That is not the kind of authority any officer should have.

Sgt. Fawcett’s conclusions are insupportable and his weak attempts to paint the RCMP officers’ actions as reasonable do them a disservice.

 The  RCMP is a farce…

In busy Toronto, police say  Drunk driving and careless turning are the main culprits for serious accidents in intersections and red light cameras are not used because of the fear of public backlash..  So why are Calgary drivers such chronic lead-foots? or is the question why is it the Calgary city fathers are so money hungry? The  police services are  implementing the   speed cameras as a way of adding to their coffers.. ‘Speed on green’ cameras linked to rear-end crashes.  Arizona cities, one of the first cities to bring in such technology says the cameras decrease speeding and dangerous collisions, but can increase the number of rear-end crashes. But of course the money hungry police of Calgary had denied this. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/06/25/we-need-more-red-light-cameras-elsewhere-too/
 
ANOTHER CASH GRAB.. The Calgary Parking Authority is expanding its hold on the inner city by starting to charge for parking on more than 20 blocks of the Beltline.
 
CALGARY AND EDMONTON POLICE ISSUE MORE TRAFFIC TICKETS OVER ANY OTHER CITIES  IN CANADA AND  FOR DECADES NOW TOO!
 
Anyone who thinks the cops here are being honest, serving the public is a fool..
  
  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.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/04/21/the-mickey-mouse-rcmp-in-canada
  
Now the RCMP is so ready to monitor others it firstly cannot monitor itself.. how absurd and hypocritical still too
 
Most reasonable and reasoning people have seen the folly of speed cameras for decades now too.    
 
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..
      
The RCMP made a mistake by waiting 14 months before correcting misinformation about a fatal incident involving four Mounties at Vancouver’s airport, a media relations officer said Wednesday at the Braidwood inquiry.  Cpl. Dale Carr told the inquiry, which is probing the death of Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver International Airport after he was Tasered five times at about 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 14, 2007.   that the misinformation initially put out by the RCMP could have compromised the investigation http://www.vancouversun.com/News/Mountie+admits+RCMP+conveyed+misinformation/1525511/story.html
 
This was no mistake, this was an unacceptable blatant lie  where real, serious punishment should be applied to all the RCMP personnel  involved.

The inquiry heard last month that in the first two days after Dziekanski died on Oct. 14, 2007, the RCMP’s public statements on the incident contained false information about how many officers were involved, how many times Dziekanski was stunned and what state Dziekanski was in when approached by officers.

Inquiry commissioner Thomas Braidwood ruled that Supt. Wayne Rideout could only address his decisions about what RCMP media spokespeople had told the public following Dziekanski’s death — despite a request by the lawyer for the Polish government to expand the scope of questions Rideout can be asked when he returns. Don Rosenbloom wanted to question Rideout about why the RCMP fought to withhold amateur video of the Taser incident, and why investigators failed to question the four Mounties who were deployed to handle Dziekanski when discrepancies were discovered in their statements.

PS: For  all these people who are talking about as to who would now make a good needed replacement for the Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper.. no one.. we have seen how bad the CANADIAN Conservatives now are REALLY LIKE, ALL OF THEM.. so WHO NEEDS ANY OF THEM..

GOOD NEWS Greens would replace RCMP with B.C. force

0guilty3

 
VANCOUVER, B.C. – Dziekanski would still be alive if not for RCMP confrontation: said a pathologist.  Robert Dziekanski would likely still be alive if he hadn’t been stunned multiple times with a Taser and restrained on the floor of Vancouver’s airport by four RCMP officers, said  an expert pathologist.   Dr. John Butt, who has served as chief medical examiner in Alberta and Nova Scotia, told a public inquiry into Dziekanski’s death that the stress of the confrontation – including the use of the Taser – likely caused the Polish man’s heart to stop.  He said it was a death that could have been avoided.  “Is it fair to say that, in your opinion, had Mr. Dziekanski not been Tasered, not been restrained on the floor, that he would still be alive today?” asked Walter Kosteckyj, the lawyer for Dziekanski’s mother.  “I suspect that, yes,” Butt replied during his testimony Wednesday. “Is that a strong opinion?” asked Kosteckyj.  “Yes,” replied Butt.  he said he could find no evidence that Dziekanski’s heart was damaged due to chronic alcoholism. That’s a contributing factor listed in the autopsy report.  Butt said  . “I don’t think there is alcoholic heart disease so I don’t think that it has any role (in Dziekanski’s death).” A lawyer for the federal government told the inquiry Dziekanski may have been on heart medication, however Butt said there was no indication of that in his medical records, including from a mandatory health exam required to immigrate to Canada. Butt, who worked on a report about Tasers for the B.C. Police Complaints Commission four years ago, said he was also concerned the autopsy report barely mentions the fact that Dziekanski was stunned with a Taser. Dr. Charles Lee, who conducted the autopsy, told the inquiry earlier in the week that the Taser may have contributed to Dziekanski’s death. But his report makes one mention of the weapon, only to explain marks on Dziekanski’s body. “I don’t see how one could possibly not mention the Taser in the commentary in this case,” said Butt. “Whether or not that’s going to say that it’s hugely relevant to the cause of death, it’s enormously relevant to the events in this case.”  Lee has told the inquiry that while he knew Dziekanski had been shocked by a Taser, he was not aware he was shocked multiple times.

The RCMP made a mistake by waiting 14 months before correcting misinformation about a fatal incident involving four Mounties at Vancouver’s airport, a media relations officer said Wednesday at the Braidwood inquiry.  Cpl. Dale Carr told the inquiry, which is probing the death of Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver International Airport after he was Tasered five times at about 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 14, 2007.   that the misinformation initially put out by the RCMP could have compromised the investigation http://www.vancouversun.com/News/Mountie+admits+RCMP+conveyed+misinformation/1525511/story.html
 
This was no mistake, this was an unacceptable blatant lie  where real, serious punishment should be applied to all the RCMP personnel  involved.

The inquiry heard last month that in the first two days after Dziekanski died on Oct. 14, 2007, the RCMP’s public statements on the incident contained false information about how many officers were involved, how many times Dziekanski was stunned and what state Dziekanski was in when approached by officers.

Inquiry commissioner Thomas Braidwood ruled that Supt. Wayne Rideout could only address his decisions about what RCMP media spokespeople had told the public following Dziekanski’s death — despite a request by the lawyer for the Polish government to expand the scope of questions Rideout can be asked when he returns. Don Rosenbloom wanted to question Rideout about why the RCMP fought to withhold amateur video of the Taser incident, and why investigators failed to question the four Mounties who were deployed to handle Dziekanski when discrepancies were discovered in their statements.

The Green Party of British Columbia said Tuesday the RCMP is not accountable to the public and promised to replace the force in B.C. if the party wins the May 12 election.

RCMP likely needs to be totally disbanded

 

0liars-rcmp1

  If what we have been told about the fatal shooting of a Vancouver man by a female police officer is true, it appears front-line cops have learned little from the Robert Dziekanski incident at Vancouver International Airport in 2007. It is ironic this happened just days before the Braidwood inquiry resumed with testimony from the RCMP officer in charge the night Dziekanski died. There are striking similarities to both incidents.   In both cases, we have a witness who disputes the official police version of what happened. And in both cases, a witness apparently caught the incident on camera. Adam Smolcic claims police seized the cellphone he used to record the fatal shooting. He also alleges that police deleted the video capture. In the Dziekanski incident, Paul Pritchard also had his video camera seized by police, and only got it back after he threatened a lawsuit. (Police say they needed to hang onto it until all other evidence they were looking for was in their possession.) Smolcic is making some pretty serious allegations: that police shot and killed someone who could have been subdued with pepper spray or a baton, and that police then tried to cover their backsides by tampering with evidence. Abbotsford Police have now been tasked with investigating the shooting. That investigation should also delve into Smolcic’s allegations. Smolcic is reported to be a marijuana activist. In the past, the word of a pot advocate wouldn’t have counted for much when weighed against the word of a police officer. Sadly, it may be easier for the public to believe Smolcic than the police. That’s how badly the Dziekanski incident has shaken the public’s trust in the police. http://www2.canada.com/surreynow/news/viewpoint/story.html?id=64e57161-c603-4208-b83e-b712c4ac1558
 
  
DIRTY RCMP AND their  lawyers still misrepresenting Tasered Dziekanski ..
  
“VANCOUVER — A neighbour of the Polish immigrant who was Tasered at the Vancouver International Airport accused lawyers at the inquiry investigating his death of trying to “make a bad person out of him.”Iwona Kosowska, who lived in the same apartment building as Robert Dziekanski before he left for Canada in October 2007, clashed numerous times with lawyers representing the RCMP officers involved in his Tasering when they suggested Dziekanski was an alcoholic or prone to violence. “You’re trying to make a bad person out of him which means you can kill a bad person because he was not good,” Kosowska said via video link from Poland. “You guys made a mistake and now you’re trying to turn everything around.” Kosowska said her neighbour was terrified of flying and didn’t sleep for 48 hours before flying to Canada to see his mother who lives in Kamloops. B.C. The inquiry, headed by retired judge Thomas Braidwood, previously heard that Dziekanski became agitated after spending more than 24 hours travelling and 10 hours stranded at the airport when he and his mother failed to meet up. He died after being hit five times with a Taser by one of the four RCMP officers called to the scene, while a bystander filmed the encounter with his cellphone.  Through an interpreter, Kosowska accused the lawyers of trying to attack Dziekanski’s character, describing him as a friendly neighbour who was interested in geography — “his great passion” — and was looking forward to starting a new life in Canada with his mother. Kosowska, who lives in the southern Polish city of Gliwice, had known Dziekanski for more than 20 years. She threatened to stop answering questions if they continued to portray him as a violent alcoholic. Kosowska defended her friend after watching the video of his death, saying that he was only “asking for help.” “I’m trying to tell you . . . he is from a foreign country without any knowledge of the language, without having a cigarette on him, without having water to drink and nobody paid any attention to him, they didn’t help him. So what kind of reaction are you expecting?” she asked. Due to a growing gap between the RCMP version of events and video evidence, the Polish-Canadian community is demanding that a “special independent prosecutor” be appointed to investigate Dziekanski’s death. The inquiry heard last week that the lead Mountie, Cpl. Benjamin (Monty) Robinson, admitted he asked to “change” his evidence after viewing the bystander’s video of the death. In his initial report, Robinson claimed 12 times that the Polish immigrant swung a stapler at the officers, the inquiry heard. This report, along with those of his fellow officers, was proved wrong by the video of Dziekanski’s death. “I was mistaken but I was telling the truth. I sort of blended the whole interaction with him,” Robinson told the inquiry last week. None of the four Mounties involved in Dziekanski’s death have been charged. Robinson also told the inquiry that the Polish immigrant “didn’t give us the opportunity” to warn him before he was Tasered, as per RCMP policy. “It wasn’t tactically possible,” Robinson said last week. Robinson said that Dziekanski grabbed a stapler and threatened the officers. When the man took a step toward police, Robinson told his colleague to fire a Taser. “I thought he was going to hit me with the stapler,” Robinson said. When asked why he told another officer to deploy his Taser less than 30 seconds after the officers arrived at the scene, Robinson again cited time constraints. ” http://www.montrealgazette.com/Health/Dziekanski+sleep+deprived+terrified+before+Tasering+Neighbour/1445354/story.html

When William Elliott was appointed RCMP commissioner in 2007, the challenges ahead were monumental.   It fell to Elliott, a career civil servant, to rebuild the tattered remains of our once-proud national police force, and restore public trust in an institution that had badly fallen into disrepute. The 24,000-member force was “horribly broken,” according to an independent review at the time. Less than two years later, the force is even worse off, and Elliott has failed to deliver. He needs to step aside –or be fired–so someone more effective and trustworthy can again try to restore accountability, transparency and integrity to our damaged Mounties. Elliott has proven he’s as much out of touch as was his predecessor, Giuliano Zaccardelli. Canadians are rightly outraged by the persistent culture of arrogance, overzealous policing and coverups that have for too long been the norm.

-An independent body of civilians is needed to investigate homicides involving police. It’s obvious that police investigating themselves isn’t working. There have been too many coverups, and the public has lost trust.

-A new commissioner is needed. Elliott has to go. He has lost credibility and can no longer lead this troubled organization back to health.

The iconic tradition of Canada’s Mounties dates back to May 23, 1873. The red serge of their uniforms has come to represent honour, order and a proud past. But red is also the colour of shame. Without drastic change, that will be the sad legacy of this once meaningful organization.

I agree, but I think it more likely needs to be totally disbanded, for  it is broken beyond repair.

In busy Toronto, police say  Drunk driving and careless turning are the main culprits for serious accidents in intersections and red light cameras are not used because of the fear of public backlash..  So why are Calgary drivers such chronic lead-foots? or is the question why is it the Calgary city fathers are so money hungry? The  police services are  implementing the   speed cameras as a way of adding to their coffers.. ‘Speed on green’ cameras linked to rear-end crashes.  Arizona cities, one of the first cities to bring in such technology says the cameras decrease speeding and dangerous collisions, but can increase the number of rear-end crashes. But of course the money hungry police of Calgary had denied this.

  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.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/04/21/the-mickey-mouse-rcmp-in-canada

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..

You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors, from police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers  who say that bad people, bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. The hypocrtical police tend not to believe that bad cons can be helped only bad cops… and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. The RCMP maximum 10 days punishment is always absurd, permanent dismissal is what is always needed with the bad cops and their clearly bad superiors who had managed and hired them too..http://www2.canada.com/burnabynow/news/community/story.html?id=8d1d3edf-7582-4031-93f0-d6efddf13a8d

Now why are the clearly foolish Canadian  justice ministers, cops, so foolish still  that they do now even think that they can turn the clock backwards and continue again doing the very same bad things now that they all have even been exposed for what they realy are world wide even.. they are bad people who abuse citizens and obstruct justice and do need to be put into prison themselves. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/11/30/25147/

It would be easy to form the impression that the four Richmond RCMP officers involved were the only ones to blame for the tragedy at Vancouver International Airport on Oct. 14, 2007.But as the lawyer for Dziekanski’s mother has astutely observed, that’s only because the RCMP’s spectacularly bad PR has stolen the spotlight. RCMP brass and the federal government could have pre-empted a damning report from Thomas Braidwood by stepping up with a genuine mea culpa and an announcement that a major overhaul of the RCMP and CBSA was already in the works. That hasn’t happened. Now, given how much has been exposed in this inquiry, it is hard to believe a few people won’t be held to account.

that includes the and justice ministers, solicitor generals at the federal and provincial levels now too and who is going to hold them all accountable? not the bad PM for sure.

Here is what I know for sure in Canada proper policing, management ,  supervision  human rights commissions are a real fact of life, society, in schools, life,  in churches, governments, commerce, institutions, civil and public services, professional services too,  and elsewhere, even on the net,  for you will always have those 30 percent at least of the persons who will try to cheat, lie  , steal, bend the rules, falsely believe they are above the laws, Self  regulation alone is too often pretentious, farcical, often not applied as well. That applies especially to the professionals, civil and public services, police, municipalities, politicians now as well..

Alberta should not renew RCMP contract

“And the RCMP has changed, for the worse. At the headquarters level there hasn’t been a good report in years. Various inquiries have found incompetence, poor training, poor discipline, poor co-ordination and communication, and outright dishonesty. Those inquiries have used phrases like “horribly broken,” “often flawed,” “not justified” and so on.

News reports made it clear that RCMP investigations into embarrassing and fatal actions of their own members were inadequate to the point of being a coverup. At the field level there were many reports of highly dubious shootings by RCMP members, and criminal investigations into the conduct of members when off duty. Former RCMP Commissioner Giuliano Zaccardelli resigned in disgrace after giving conflicting statements to a Parliamentary committee. ” http://www.calgaryherald.com/opinion/Alberta+should+renew+RCMP+contract/3498184/story.html?cid=megadrop_story 

This is not a new revelation I myself now had detailed to you about 25 years ago my own experience in Canmore Alberta with the perverse RCMP where I got 2 speeding tickets on the same spot years apart and how the RCMP next also had covered up for it’s pervere buddies, and I had also entered my complaint about their perverse acts into the Canmore Queens court record as well now.

The actual needless number of times the arriving polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski  was shocked by the RCMP in the Vancouver Airport  , as well as the actual speed with which the Taser was deployed, have also been issues at the ongoing BC RCMP -Robert Dziekanski   inquiry, along with the clearly VERY POOR  manner in which next the stunned Robert Dziekanski  was monitored and treated by the RCMP after his collapse. 
  

 jails.prison2

The Braidwood Inquiry into the Taser-related death of Robert Dziekanski has been blown up and left in ruins by the revelation a key RCMP e-mail was withheld from the commission. After months of outrage about the conduct of the four Mounties who responded to Vancouver Airport Oct. 14, 2007, who can believe that at the last minute, a federal lawyer would produce what many would consider a smoking gun — an e-mail saying the officers decided to use the Taser before confronting the Polish immigrant? If true, the Nov. 5, 2007, e-mail titled “Media strategy — release of the YVR video,” from RCMP Chief Supt. Dick Bent to assistant commissioner Al McIntyre, establishes the four have been lying through their teeth. This critical document suggests the four officers committed perjury and that senior officers sat silent while they did so. Worse, it seems there are many other documents that have not been turned over that may be relevant. This e-mail was one of 260 documents on a CD sent by the RCMP to the justice department last April, yet the federal lawyers didn’t open the CD until last week.. Commissioner William Elliott’s carefully parsed press release was equally unbelievable: “This was simply an oversight. Unfortunately in an exercise of this magnitude, such an oversight can occur.” Bollocks. No one but a moron overlooks the import of an e-mail like this. The officers deny the explosive content is true and Roberts says Bent was wrong in what he said. But their protestations ring hollow after almost 18 months of bluster and denial. So does Elliott’s threadbare these-things-happen excuse. The situation is as bad as the most virulent critics of the Mounties feared. This is no longer about four officers who made mistakes in judgment: It’s about an organization that thinks it is above the law.  .It is time to thank commissioner Braidwood for his excellent work in bringing these unsettling facts to light and it’s time to appoint a special prosecutor.  The B.C. Law Society should also begin an investigation into the conduct of Roberts and any other federal lawyer involved in this staggering lack of disclosure. That was not an “oversight.” It was professional incompetence or a cover-up. http://www.vancouversun.com/Mounties+Tasering+should+face+prosecution/1716660/story.html
RCMP management clearly lied, also to blame.. Mounties read through 1,000 internal e-mails preparing for inquiry
 
“RCMP’s communication strategy ultimately failed. The force did not publicly correct inaccuracies or defend its role in the case, fearing that information might alter witnesses’ recollection of events. Police also believed, the report said, that public opinion would switch to supporting the RCMP after all the facts were known. We found neither argument valid,” the report said. “For deeply rooted systemic reasons and long-held views regarding the importance of due process, the RCMP’s management of issues and communications were lacking and caused many of the problems the organization was trying to avoid.”We therefore recommend that clear, precise guidelines about what can be released, and at what point in the investigation, be developed, and that these guidelines be based on a liberal view of releasing information.” http://www.canada.com/News/Mounties+read+through+internal+mails+preparing+inquiry/1714755/story.html

VANCOUVER, B.C. – Dziekanski would still be alive if not for RCMP confrontation: said a pathologist.  Robert Dziekanski would likely still be alive if he hadn’t been stunned multiple times with a Taser and restrained on the floor of Vancouver’s airport by four RCMP officers, said  an expert pathologist.   Dr. John Butt, who has served as chief medical examiner in Alberta and Nova Scotia, told a public inquiry into Dziekanski’s death that the stress of the confrontation – including the use of the Taser – likely caused the Polish man’s heart to stop.  He said it was a death that could have been avoided.  “Is it fair to say that, in your opinion, had Mr. Dziekanski not been Tasered, not been restrained on the floor, that he would still be alive today?” asked Walter Kosteckyj, the lawyer for Dziekanski’s mother.  “I suspect that, yes,” Butt replied during his testimony Wednesday. “Is that a strong opinion?” asked Kosteckyj.  “Yes,” replied Butt.  he said he could find no evidence that Dziekanski’s heart was damaged due to chronic alcoholism. That’s a contributing factor listed in the autopsy report.  Butt said  . “I don’t think there is alcoholic heart disease so I don’t think that it has any role (in Dziekanski’s death).” A lawyer for the federal government told the inquiry Dziekanski may have been on heart medication, however Butt said there was no indication of that in his medical records, including from a mandatory health exam required to immigrate to Canada. Butt, who worked on a report about Tasers for the B.C. Police Complaints Commission four years ago, said he was also concerned the autopsy report barely mentions the fact that Dziekanski was stunned with a Taser. Dr. Charles Lee, who conducted the autopsy, told the inquiry earlier in the week that the Taser may have contributed to Dziekanski’s death. But his report makes one mention of the weapon, only to explain marks on Dziekanski’s body. “I don’t see how one could possibly not mention the Taser in the commentary in this case,” said Butt. “Whether or not that’s going to say that it’s hugely relevant to the cause of death, it’s enormously relevant to the events in this case.”  Lee has told the inquiry that while he knew Dziekanski had been shocked by a Taser, he was not aware he was shocked multiple times.

Mounties accused of ‘cooking up’ story Toronto Star – ‎  VANCOUVER–Four Mounties “collaborated to fabricate” their story to justify their conduct when Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski died while in their custody, a lawyer told a public inquiry yesterday. The lawyer added that inadequate medical procedures by the Mounties after Dziekanski, 41, received five Taser jolts were “a contributing factor” in his death.  In wrapping up questioning of Cpl. Benjamin “Monty” Robinson – who was in charge when Dziekanski died at the Vancouver airport Oct. 14, 2007 – Rosenbloom posited the Mounties were “fast at work at the scene, cooking up the story” and continued to collaborate on it at the detachment.Robinson made six modifications to earlier facts in a March 2 letter from his lawyer, almost six weeks after the inquiry began in January. For example, he changed earlier statements Dziekanski was “swinging” a stapler at the Mounties in a threatening manner and had been unresponsive to their commands.Walter Kosteckyj, lawyer for Dziekanski’s mother, Zofia Cisowski, called the officers’ actions that night “a training film for how not to handle a situation from beginning to end.”  Robinson insisted he gave instructions to Dziekanski to calm down and place his hands on an airport counter in the arrivals area, adding hand gestures to make his points. “Calm down, put your hands on the counter,” he said he told the Polish immigrant. Noted Rosenbloom: “You know that was meaningless in terms of a man without English?” “Yes,” replied Robinson Although testimony from the Mounties involved ended yesterday, there are still 30 to 40 witnesses to appear at the commission.

 Robert Dziekanski was lying dead on the floor of Vancouver’s airport, his entire face blue, 90 seconds after RCMP officers who shocked him with a Taser say he was alive and breathing, a paramedic told a public inquiry Thursday.– A paramedic called to the Vancouver International Airport after Robert Dziekanski went unconscious said the lead RCMP officer told him the Polish immigrant was Tasered only once. Allan Maciak told the Braidwood inquiry, which is investigating Mr. Dziekanski’s October 2007 death, that RCMP Cpl. Monty Robinson didn’t tell him that the Polish immigrant had been hit by a Taser five times. Mr. Maciak said Thursday he could clearly see that Mr. Dziekanski had turned blue as he lay on the floor surrounded by RCMP officers and Richmond firefighters. The Polish immigrant was dead when he arrived at the scene, Mr. Maciak said. http://www.nationalpost.com/news/story.html?id=1431665

Mounties ‘misleading everyone’: Polish group Ottawa Citizen – VANCOUVER — The Polish-Canadian community is demanding that a “special independent prosecutor” be appointed to investigate the Tasering of Robert Dziekanski at the Vancouver airport after the inquiry into his death revealed a growing gap between the RCMP version of events and video evidence.RCMP Cpl. Benjamin (Monty) Robinson, the officer in charge at the time and the last of four Mounties to testify at the Braidwood inquiry, admitted he asked to “change” his evidence after viewing a video of the death shot by a bystander.

Another RCMP officer retracts statements at Dziekanski inquiry The Canadian Press  VANCOUVER, B.C. — Robert Dziekanski was not, as he has been portrayed in the past, the agitated man who withstood the shock from a Taser and swung a stapler at police, the most senior RCMP officer admits. In the hours and days after Dziekanski collapsed and died on the floor of Vancouver’s airport in October 2007, the four RCMP officers involved told investigators he was an aggressive threat to public safety, even after he took the first shock from an RCMP Taser.The officers said they had to wrestle Dziekanski to the ground – evidence disputed by a witness video of Dziekanski’s dying moments.Cpl. Benjamin Monty Robinson told a public inquiry into Dziekanski’s death Wednesday that he made erroneous statements to those homicide investigators.

Police should re-open investigation of Dziekanski incident, say Vancouver Sun  Vancouver – A West Vancouver man who was one of the founders of the Solidarity movement in Poland called for police to re-open its investigation into the death of Polish citizen in 2007. Zygmunt Riddle, said he “absolutely” believes the police handling of Robert Dziekanski should be reinvestigated, in light of the testmony that has emerged at the Braidwood Inquiry. “The testimony of the RCMP officers involved in the death of Robert Dziekanski at the Braidwood inquiry raises serious questions about the integrity and honesty all four officers involved in the Tasering incident,” Riddle said in a letter he sent Wednesday to Attorney General Wally Oppal. Riddle handed out copies of the letter to reporters attending the Braidwood inquiry, which is probing Dziekanski’s death at Vancouver International Airport after 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 14, 2007. Riddle told reporters that he also set up a Facebook group, which has 10,000 members, asking for the attorney general to review other criminal cases the four officers were involved to make sure there wasn’t a miscarriage of justice. He said the four officers have now shown that they made false police statements, which the officers only changed after seeing a video taken by a bystander at the airport.The inquiry has heard that the police statements of the officers were riddled with errors.

  

“The “Wayne” to whom Chief Supt. Bent presumably is referring in the e-mail is Supt. Wayne Rideout, the head of the integrated homicide investigation team into Mr. Dziekanski’s death who admitted under oath at the commission that he had lied to public as to the circumstances of the incident. Supt. Rideout publicly claimed that Mr. Dzienkanski had been Tasered twice, when in fact the man had been hit with the stun gun at least five times. He also claimed the officers had to wrestle the man to the ground because the first shot had no discernible effect, when in fact video evidence is clear that the distraught would-be immigrant from Poland fell quickly after he was first zapped.  The absolutely sickening thing about this entire episode is that were it not for a bystander with a camera phone who had the presence of mind to videotape the conduct of the four officers, their lies, evasions and concocted story might have worked to let Mr. Dziekanski’s death be explained away.  Commission counsel Art Vertlieb is absolutely justified when he observed Friday that this delayed disclosure raises questions about whether the RCMP has actually shared everything in its files that Mr. Braidwood needs to do the job.”  http://www.thestarphoenix.com/Dziekanski+probe+turns+into+fiasco+RCMP+bungles/1716292/story.html

Most Old media, Management Twits failed to adjust to the new reality

00aliars1
 
CTV bought by Bell because CTV has been losing value, populairty too.. other media firms are also being bought out..
 
Managers of the news media still tend to put profitability over providing  real service to it’s readers, customers and then wonder why they are going out of business so fast. A number of Canadian media organizations have announced layoffs and the United States has seen newspapers close altogether as well as layoffs. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/05/21/why-many-businesses-fail/
      
“The Canadian media industry is at best in a state of flux, while others would argue in a state of turmoil. With the advent of the internet, media is changing and going through a “correction period”. Media outlets have to change with the economic times and the new technologies. Like any industry, it’s unfortunate so many people are losing their jobs. There are major job cuts all over. CanWest (which owns the Regina Leader Post, Calgary Herald and Saskatoon Star Phoenix and Global television stations) is on the brink of bankruptcy; CHUM Radio and TransContinental have had major job cuts; TorStar (Toronto Star) posted a $211.2 million fourth quarter loss; CTV has cut jobs and is closing some television stations.  With all of that happening, the fat cats at CBC are begging for more funding from the Conservative government. Apparently a billion dollars doesn’t cut it … to help pay for expensive trips for executives etc. Just read up on vice-president for French Services Sylvain LaFrance who apparently racked  up $80,000 in entertainment, meal and miscellaneous expenses. Sure, maybe big private company executives do this, but those companies aren’t funded by taxpayers.”  http://www.prairiepost.com/index.phpoption=com_content&task=view&id=3548&Itemid=45
 
Now  firstly like you I am sorry anytime a person  anywhere loses his or her job, except for : the crooks, realtors, used and new car salesmen, computer dealers, bad cops, bad civil and public servants, bad lawyers, bad accountants, bad doctors, bad nurses, bad pastors, politicians and their aides, and seriously any job loss  it is a great tragedy for many too, one  that is not to be underestimated, a job or career changes are debasing to one’s health, as well as one’s family and one’s finances too..
 
Secondly I happen to know a little bit about the news media, the telecommunication industries, etc.,  even by the sad true fact that some of them they really in the past did not care really about consumer welfare or  interests but mainly  their own agendas.. people who do not learn fail the grade in real life..  and because now they were solely self centered, self interested,  so  me too now I have thus been no fan of the RCMP, CRTC, Bell, Sympatico, Rogers, CTV, National Post,  Global, Regina Leader Post, Calgary Herald  Saskatoon Star Phoenix , TorStar (Toronto Star), the Suns, even basically  cause firstly they did not appreciate my own personal email alerts and some had wrongfully told me so…  Well I am still writing and they on the other hand  many of them now are really  going to the desert where they can have more time and  mediate on their own past  mistakes.. even conceit, and concede inflexibility, a  lack of foresight, lack of people skills..
 
Thirdly it was predicable the impact that the computer net would have on the the newspapers, and decades, decades ago I told the Calgary Herald in writing to plan ahead for it.. I did..  How come Google though was smart enough to see the trend and to make loads of money from it and the others were inflexible , doing their own, the same old thing and so they  lost out?
 

 
I also had a decade ago cancelled my newspaper subscriptions, especially the Gazette, which had old news copied from other news sources mostly too, and I had also now stopped my watching boring TV News stations and programs,  as per Microsoft’s  Mr. Bill Gates own advice , and instead I solely use,  used my computer for all of my multi media needs..
 
For my choice I still do like the Globe & Mail, the improved CBC news, Macleans.ca ,  Canadian Press, Google news , CNW group http://www.newswire.ca/ and some others….
 
The new age- The Internet and the word “free” are so entwined when it comes to getting news and information online from mainstream media outlets that consumers aren’t going to want to give it up, Anyone born in the 1980s the computer age now  doesn’t expect to pay for news. Advertisers have to pay for it.
 
  
Amazon Inc. has recently unveiled its newest version of the Kindle e-reader, a device that allows users to digitally view and read books, newspapers, magazines, and documents. Although print versions of books and newspapers are still profitable, many experts predict their decline in favor of digital documents.  The new device offers easy access to digital versions of various texts – books, newspapers, and even regular PDF documents. According to Amazon, the company has signed deals with three leading textbook publishers to put their content on the electronic reader. Reportedly, Amazon has struck deals with the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Boston Globe to feature their editorials on the device.  http://thefutureofthings.com/news/7128/amazon-unveils-kindle-dx-e-reader.html

MP Stockwell Day alleges protectionism. Says U.S. businesses use security as way of controlling market. Some American businesses are using security concerns as an excuse to try to keep Canadian goods out of the U.S. market, says Canada’s trade minister. So what real good is he now doing about it besides talking about it? Ever notice how many news media still do even lie and say their still often pretentious, usless MP is the best? I look at the results… not the mere words.
 
WASHINGTON — Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said Canada needs further assurances from General Motors Corp. and other struggling automakers that the industry remains viable over the long term, and that any federal bailout will not be a “waste of taxpayers’ money.” The federal government announced in December it was prepared to offer $4 billion in aid to the automakers, including $3 billion for GM Canada and $1 billion for Chrysler Canada. General Motors, in a proposal submitted last month to Ottawa, is seeking $6 billion in Canadian aid as part of a restructuring plan that also proposes sharp cuts to employee pay and benefits for retirees. Still the General Motors Corp.’s auditors have raised “substantial doubt” about the troubled automaker’s ability to continue operations, and the company said it may have to seek bankruptcy protection if it can’t execute a huge restructuring plan. The GM auditor’s report “leads us to the same conclusion that we had before, namely that we have to review their plans very closely and make sure they make sense” for Canadian taxpayers. I shed no tears for the bad executives, managers of GM. My new Buick had a busted transmission straight from the factory even, next the replacement Buick had brake problems,  and was the last GM car I bought too.. so they GM  are reaping what they sowed  too..
 
Canada- The useless RCMP pretentious, inadequate watchdog says he lacks the powers to check whether the Mounties have made changes to prevent another Maher Arar affair. Paul Kennedy, chair of the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP, told a Commons committee today he can provide no assurances the government has enacted the Arar inquiry’s recommendations or also the Taser recommendations or whatever? Fire him too ASAP along with all of the RCMP. Undeniable images of Dziekanski’s horrible death, and the undeniable reality of  the glaring contradictions between the officers’ statements and what really happened. Many people are in jail because the Queen’s courts had relied on what they believed to be accurate accounts of events by trained RCMP officers, supported by their notes made at the time. The Dziekanski inquiry is rightfully raising troubling questions about the reliability of that RCMP evidence presented . The contradictions and inaccuracies in the evidence of the three officers who have testified suggest undeniably the RCMP officers  were incompetent or more likely dishonest. Their accounts were showed before all to be wildly inaccurate and self-serving. Under a video evidence, and  the lawyer’s cross  examinations, the RCMP officers changed their initial written down accounts of the Vancouver  airport Taser death details, clearly showing that these RCMP  officers now should be personally as well pursued for lying to the courts, obstruction of Justice. Their RCMP superiors as well who had initially wanted to hold the same video for 2 years and not give it back to the owner. 
 
The federal and provincial governments are reviewing bailing out the automotive manufacturing industry in the midst of a recession. They obviously better think twice about it too. Now that more Canadian and US cities have Metros, electric railway cars, many people have now  put their old cars away for good. Many people have stopped buying new cars, meaning also many people have stopped leasing a car, car leasing sales have dropped by 2/3. Employees Salaries alone are not the reasons all cars are expensive, for the salaries make up 7 percent of car costs. The costs of oil and gas, car maintenance, tires, parking, storage, and car insurance contribute to the expensive  ownership costs of cars as well.
     
CBC: A Health Canada study of canned pop has found the vast majority of the drinks contain the chemical bisphenol A, a substance that imitates the female hormone estrogen and is banned in baby bottles. Out of 72 drinks tested, 69 were found to contain BPA at levels below what Health Canada says is the safe upper limit. However, studies in peer-reviewed science journals have indicated that even at very low doses, BPA can increase breast and ovarian cancer cell growth and the growth of some prostate cancer cells in animals. 
     
The Most Dangerous Cities in Canada according to MacLean’s clearly seem to be in the WEST, which also has the highest divorce rates,  and they all next get likely worse because of the present recession and drugs? Predictable even these are the get rich quick, boom and bust  places where many persons now who had left their PARENTS  back EAST.
 
Unhappily married women are more likely than unhappily married men to suffer high blood pressure, obesity and high blood sugar, putting them at greater risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes, say U.S. researchers. While both genders are just as likely to feel depressed in strained marriages, the similarity appears to end there. And yet next  many women foolishly still do  think a quick divorce will bring them next  riches and happiness next, and significantly more women file for a divorce over men, but it almost all of the cases  does not go the way they had expected it to go and  in many ways.. they next rather cannot overcome Carma, the fact that they are  reaping  what they themselves had sowed, for  they had initially made a bad choice of a mate firstly,  or were too lazy, and/or had an unrealistic expectation of what marriage was, is. Marriage  it is not just living together, sex.. but a lot of hard work for both now too. Blaming others mainly over personal accountability is the typical crook’s way.

PS ONE REASON  I OFTEN MAKE MY POSTS IS CAUSE THE NEWS MEDIA OFTEN LIE, SPIN, DISTORT THE TRUTH LIKE CTV, NATIONAL POST, SUN AND OTHERS.. WHAT HAPPENED TO NEWS MEDIA BEING FIRSTLY HONEST, AND HOW CAN I EXPECT THE POLITICIANS TO BE NEXT HONEST WHEN THE NEWS MEDIA LIE.
 
RED NECKED CONSERVATIVES also  LIE  claiming all of the Canadian news media are lefties. ” The Sun chain of papers isn’t left wing. Baton Broadcasting which is CTV is owned by the Bassets who are bag men for the Tories. Canwest Global’s Leonard Asper introduces Harper during campaign rallies. The Globe and Mail may not be far right but they are a business paper. Talk radio (CFRB for example) in this country is all hard line right wing. Regional media in the is very right wing. The Toronto Star just hired the former editor of the Chicago Sun Times, the most right wing, big city newspaper in the USA. So we’re left with the CBC and Tom Long is changing it to the right. So much for the old claim of a left wing media in this country”. To me an immoral right winger is no different from an immoral leftie as well..

CTV Television Inc., Canwest Global Communications and the publicly funded CBC have all blamed the economic downturn, increasing competition and inroads by the Internet for cuts to staff and local programming.  Recent months have seen CTV slash the local news arms of “Canada AM,” gut staff at its A Channel stations and cancel local morning shows in Victoria, London, Ont., Barrie, Ont., and Montreal. Canwest has been grappling with a $4 billion debt and is trying to sell five E! network television stations, while the publicly funded CBC has said a $171-million shortfall is forcing it to eliminate up to 800 jobs. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090522/national/ctv_local_news
 
No one asked me anything about it.. I have not watched these crappy TV stations for a year now, and there is only 2 Canadian TV programs that  I have watched and one was  was “The Listener” and the other was was “The Border”..

 

A key part of the Canwest Global Communications Corp. media empire has been granted court protection from creditors. Canwest,  a CONTROL FREAK too, controls The National Post newspaper and Global Television AND many of the largest daily papers in Canadian cities, including the Edmonton, Windsor, Ottawa Citizen, the Montreal Gazette, the Vancouver Sun, the Vancouver Province, the Victoria Times-Colonist and the Calgary Herald. Ironically these are some of the most unfriendly newspapers that I also have dealt with now .. SO I AM NOT SURPRISED THEY ARE HAVING FINANCIAL PROBLEMS
