Funny the Canadian News media did not mention this.

Australia, Canada and Japan vs Russia

Australia, Canada and Japan were unexpectedly  blocked by the Russians  from attending a diplomatic summit in Vienna last week which laid the groundwork for a possible future UN Security Council resolution, ceasefire and transition government in Syria,   blocked from attending a diplomatic summit  due to  their one sided support of a US vs Russia power  play. A proxy state of war between America and Russia now exists. So far, Putin has now  outwitted Obama in Syria.
 .
Australia has also  been critical of Russia’s handling of the MH17 disaster. The former prime minister, Tony Abbott, took a hard line against Russia after the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine last year, illustrated by his threat to “shirtfront” the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, at the G20 meeting in Brisbane. Australian fighter jets have been carrying out airstrikes against Isis targets in Iraq since late last year. Peter Tesch, a former ambassador to Germany, is to  become Australia’s top diplomat in Russia from January. The appointment comes  “at a challenging juncture in Russia’s relations with Australia  seeks to resolve the conflict in eastern Ukraine and Syria and pursue justice for the victims of MH17”.
.
Syria was excluded from discussing its own status and future. It has still a  final say on anything agreed on.
 .

The majority of Canadians oppose the government’s plan to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees  as most of them are still Muslims.

.

Why the Islamic wars today?

About 1,300 years ago after the death of the Prophet Muhammad, a succession crisis divided Muslims; and the widening schism continues to play out today. The dispute over how to replace Muhammad as the leader of the Muslim world after his death in 632 — and increasingly after the deaths of subsequent leaders — led to competing iterations of the Islamic faith, diverting followers into two major branches — the Sunni and the Shia with doctrinal distinctions created the schism. In History we also did have the non violent Catholics and the Orthodox split.

.

The Islamic split began very early history of Islam. Those pushing for selecting successors as caliph of the Islamic State and as the religious authority only from among the family of Muhammad became known as the Shia, from the Arabic for “the followers of Ali,” a reference to Muhammad’s son-in-law, Ali ibn Abi Talib. Those pushing for a selective process based on seeking the most qualified from the wider tribal context became known as the Sunni, from the Arabic for “people of the tradition.” This was really a political dispute, but that political dispute early on over who should continued over centuries and a theological sectarian split. A study in 2009 by the Pew Research Center says there were more than 1.57 billion Muslims around the world, about 23% of the world’s population. Of those, 10 to 13 percent were Shia and 87-90 percent were Sunni. It is largely where those Shia live that has become important. The majority of Shias (between 68 to 80 percent) live in just four countries: Iran, Pakistan, India and Iraq. In many other countries in the Persian Gulf, Shia remain a minority within Sunni dominated states. That makes theology increasingly also  political.

.

The Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), follows a distinctive variety of their own Islam whose beliefs do differ from the regional Sunni-Shiite tensions They literally want to over throw the world and replace it with their own Islamic view of the future.  In 2014, after taking control of territory in the Sunni heartland of Iraq, ISIL proclaimed itself a caliphate, calling other states illegitimate and placing itself as the exclusive authority over the Islamic world, as if the world was the same as it was 1,300 years ago. ISIL targets Shia Muslims as well as the West as it imposes its strict interpretations within territory it controls. ISIL wants to convince everyone the struggle is one epic clash of civilizations between the false Western religions and the Islamic World — with themselves as the true  representative of the world’s Muslims and as their religious authority — their caliph, the scholars said. The ISIL also carves its bloody notion of a new Islamic State world wide  lashing out at targets both within the Muslim world and in the West. They claim they do  have restored the Islamic empire called the caliphate as they believe that the caliphate is required in order to properly implement Islamic law and Islamic governance. They consider other systems of governance, even if there’s a Muslim sitting at the top, as illegitimate as long as the caliphate is absent. Members of the two branches if Islam, Sunni and the Shia had originally lived together peacefully and intermarried, but this highly politicized, the divide also becomes next “very heated” and now lead to calls for excommunication from the Islamic faith. In the current context of the self-declared Islamic State, that means death to all, even the Sunni and the Shia Islamists

The notion of Shia now  being the dangerous iteration shifted through fundamentalist Sunni groups such as the Taliban, al Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also referred to as ISIS). For a while, exploiting the Sunni-Shia split served the interests of nations controlled by either branch. Saudi Arabia, is also guilty of forcefully exportating it’s Sunni Islamist ideology. The ISIL, Shia-Sunni split is  important when the major backers of each branch are dominating influences in the same, sensitive region: Middle East, Iran and Saudi Arabia. The ISIL, Iran and Saudi Arabia has  aquired  loads of money and are  now also able to acquire, and to finance many ISIL recruits.

Congratulations Justin Trudeau PM

Parliament, Ottawa, Canada –

Justin Trudeau as the son of the man who led the country for almost 16 years, Trudeau has more experience in the upper echelons of Canadian political power than most rookie PMs — certainly more than Stephen Harper did when he became prime minister in 2006. Justin likely learned the value of discipline and respect for dissenting opinions under his father’s long tutelage .  When Justin Trudeau officially assumes the top post on Nov. 4, it will be 47 years after his father first became prime minister..  “All his life, he’s lived in a world where he could think of world leaders as actual people,”.  Justin Trudeau acknowledged that being on planes with his dad and his closest advisers gave him an insight into how policy was made Justin Trudeau, AND  wife, Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau, both of them ARE bilingual in English and French,

CANADA IN PERSPECTIVE

The causes of the refugees in Syria

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria’s information minister says Europe should bear full responsibility for the flood of Syrian refugees streaming into the continent. The minister, Omran al-Zoubi, says that the migrants are mostly fleeing from areas held by rivals of President Bashar Assad’s government, including the Islamic State group.   European countries, “which sent terrorists” to Syria and imposed economic sanctions on the Syrian people, must take responsibility for their anti-Syria policies.. European countries have been harsh critics of Assad’s government and thousands of Islamic fighters from around the world, including Europe, have come to Syria to fight in extremist groups such as the IS against the  Syrian government forces.

Syria is a relatively new country: Its borders were constructed by European powers in the 1920s, mashing together several ethnic and religious groups.   Five years ago, Syria was the most stable country in the most turbulent region in the world. It had been so for decades This regime appeared stable, but when the false Islamic  Arab Spring protests began in 2011, it turned out not to be. The Sunni extremist group known as al-Qaeda in Iraq, which had been mostly defeated in 2007, was rebuilding itself. It grew strong fighting against Assad in Syria, and later swept northern Iraq under the new name ISIS. The United States should not have gone to war years ago to intervene forcefully in the Syrian civil war as  there should not be any external interference in the internal affairs of a country like Syria . And  there’s no bad terrorism and good terrorism. There’s only terrorism. We should all join hands together to fight terrorism.  Four years of civil war has turned Syria into a humanitarian tragedy. Tens of thousands of Syrians have lost their lives and millions have been rendered refugees. The chaos created by the war has helped the rise of terrorist groups such as the Islamic State. The war is not over yet. You lose some ground in certain battles to win bigger ones. The reality is that nobody is fighting the IS but the Syrian Army.

While the desperate flight of Syrians from their country’s war was dominating news bulletins this summer, the yet another diplomatic push to end the four-year-old conflict  is at a dead end and there is no solution in sight.  President Bashar al-Assad’s of Syria  appears confident of survival with backing from his Russian and Iranian allies.

Saudi Arabia and the other Sunni Muslim Gulf states , UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Qatar. have reaffirmed their opposition to Assad, whom who has the support of Shi’ite in Iran, but have not said publicly how they intend to deal with the arrival of the Russian forces. The Gulf Arab states fund the Syrian rebels In Syria.

The election of Faisal bin Hassan Trad to chair a panel of independent experts on the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) follows a barrage of criticism aimed at the Saudi regime over its treatment of minorities and its apparent fondness for capital punishment. Mr Trad, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador at the UN in Geneva, was appointed to the role in June – shortly after the kingdom posted an advert for eight new executioners.  “Saudi Arabia has arguably the worst record in the world when it comes to religious freedom and women’s rights, and continues to imprison the innocent blogger Raif Badawi.”  Mr Badawi’s wife, Ensaf Haidar, who has been leading a campaign to free her husband, said the move gave Saudi Arabia “a green light to start flogging [him] again”. A 2015 Human Rights Watch report accused the Saudis of “systematic discrimination against women and religious minorities” and claimed “authorities subjected hundreds of people to unfair trials and arbitrary detention”.
In the first six months of 2015, Saudi Arabia beheaded more than 100 people. Decapitations, whippings and mutilations are common punishments for crimes.  A year ago the world witnessed a new phenomenon  the Arab Spring . Instead of asserting democracy and protecting the rights of the minority, major attempts were being made to depose an enemy violently  and to stage a coup, which tended only to result in the replacement of one dominant force with another, even a  more aggressive religious force, or Muslim terrorists.. The Arab Spring has graphically demonstrated their Islamic religious bias .

The main objective of Syria’s enemies from day one of the crisis was regime change and destabilisation of the country. That’s part of the reasons that  we have this humanitarian refugee situation now  The solution to the refugees is very simple. Stop arming the rebels, mercenaries, close the borders and there should be an international will to fight all terrorism. Unless and until you close the border and remove the terror infrastructure, you can’t defeat them. So you also must put pressure on those countries supporting and sponsoring terrorism, specially  the US, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. The U.S. sends food and medical supplies —  weapons — to Syrian rebels.   The USA has been systematically destroying Syria , bombing infrastructure which has left people with no water, electricity or means to provide food. This made life impossible, so they had to leave. Now Europe has to pay. Obama is disguisting and inhumane! He should be tried for crimes against humanity for his bombing campaign in Syria 

Also there’s no solution to the current Syrian crisis without the current Syrian president and the Syrian government.  France  has refused to carry out strikes in Syria on fears that foreign intervention will escalate the refugee problems.. France’s priority remains finding a credible political alternative to escaltaing the war in Syria.

For more see: The causes of the refugees in Syria

The majority of Canadians oppose the government’s plan to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees in the next six weeks, and the most common complaint is that there isn’t enough time, a new poll shows.

More than half of Canadians (54 per cent) either moderately or strongly oppose Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s plan to bring 25,000 refugees over by Jan. 1, 2016. Meanwhile, 42 per cent moderately or strongly support the plan, according to an Angus Reid Institute poll conducted three days after terrorist attacks killed 129 people in Paris.

Of those who oppose the Liberal government’s refugee plan, the majority (53 per cent) cite tight timelines as their main concern, saying they fear it’s too short to allow for appropriate security checks. Another ten per cent think 25,000 refugees is just too many, while eight per cent say the plan is too expensive. The Liberal government has not released details of their plan, including how they will get all the refugees to Canada and how much it will cost.

Almost one-third (29 per cent) of those who oppose the Liberal plan say Canada should not take in any refugees from the war-torn region. That means about 16 per cent of all poll respondents (those who support and oppose the plan) want to close the nation’s borders to Syrians.

Opposition is highest in Alberta (62 per cent) and lowest in Atlantic Canada (46 per cent).

The poll suggests that Premier Brad Wall is on the right side of public opinion in Saskatchewan.

Stephen Harper’s Undeniable Acts

stephen_harper

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

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

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

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

This week in Stephen Harper’s Canada

canada-corrupted-conservatives

This week  in Prime Minister’s Stephen Harper’s Canada; the economy shrank, 30 cases of fraud and breach of trust were found in the Senate, and Canada Post pushed ahead with unnecessary and ill-advised cuts to home mail delivery.  Harper is out of the country.

.

” Canada is on the verge of a new recession. The first quarter GDP numbers were released by the Bank of Canada and they showed that the economy shrank by 0.6% between January and April. The report was full of bad news and showed that economic growth in March was weaker than February and growth in February was weaker than January. This shows that the negative effects of the oil price collapse are accelerating and voiding any positive benefit we may be seeing from lower gas prices. –

.

Canada’s Auditor general cites lack of oversight for Senate spending mess.   A fishing trip, contracts for professional services and one senator’s own 50th wedding anniversary celebration are some of the ineligible expenses filed under the guise of parliamentary business,  Auditor general Michael Ferguson’s comprehensive audit of Senate expenses,  spans a two-year period and names 30 senators, including nine whose files are being recommended for referral to the RCMP.  Members of Canada’s Senate improperly spent almost C$1 million ($810,000) in just two years, according to a report released on Tuesday. Ferguson’s investigation uncovered C$992,663 in irregular spending and expense claims made by 30 current and former senators. Eight of those senators were appointed by Harper too.   Ferguson said he was “struck by the overall lack of transparency and accountability” exercised both by the institution as a whole and by some individual senators.  80,000 claims investigated at a cost taxpayers $23.5 million .

.

Harper is a very poor  manager.  We can  all realize that the emperor has no clothes. Two of the 30 senators in question are Leo Housakos, speaker of the chamber, and Claude Carignan, government leader in the Senate.Both are Harper appointees, as is Senator Mike Duffy, who is on trial facing charges of bribery and improper spending.  One of the two sitting senators whose cases will be examined by police is Harper appointee Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu. This scandal makes a mockery of the promise Harper made when he took power in 2006 of more honesty, transparency, to increase accountability and clean up the Senate. “The responsibility for this scandal continues to go back to the prime minister of this country who promised reform … We deserve better,”

List of senators named in expenses audit and money that’s in dispute  http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2015/06/05/list-of-senators-named-in-expenses-audit-and-money-thats-in-dispute.html

.

“Massive cuts to Canada Post are set to hit home as the Crown Corporation has announced plans to end home mail delivery to all residences and businesses with postal codes beginning with P7A, P7B, P7C and P7E early in 2016.  , Canada Post is a national institution that has generated a profit of $951 million for the federal government between 2005 and 2014. Yet, for some reason, and in spite of its significant yearly profits, the Harper Conservatives plan to make Canada the only G7 country without home mail delivery. ”

.

Stephen ‎Harper  again  renews  his attack on Russia’s Vladimir Putin. “Harper ‎said the Russian economy has little in common with western ones.” In reality the biggest threat to Canada and the Canadian way of life is firstly is Harper not Putin.   The more he articulates it, the more Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s speaks  on Russian President Vladimir Putin the more Harper is weird.  Harper now  why do you want to keep poking the big Russian bear with a small  stick?

,

Harper gains no kudos from me for stealing money from the poor native Canadians and then handing that money out to the billionaire oligarchs in the Ukraine. It is quite telling that Harper seems focused on denouncing Russia’s economy and claims they are not the same as “Western values”.   What is a “western value” economic system, Mr Harper?  gays?   “Mr. Putin runs an entirely different system … he runs an economy that is dominated by oligarchs and criminal syndicates.”  Strange comment from Harper. It’s very good description of North American “systems,” too .  Harper,  he is trying to deflect the media away from covering the Auditor General’s findings, the economy, the Duffy trial, his vacating Ministers… In short, everything that is important to Canada.  Which is why he is, was on the other side of the world…hiding!  He should return to Canada and deal with all the problems we do have at home. Until Harper learns how to keep his own house clean, he has no business criticizing Russia. There is nothing Harper will not politicize to get a vote. What a sad and pathetic sense of leadership. Harper is the last person who should be bad mouthing Putin as  a Dictator.   All coming from the man who wrecked Canada. Harper doesn’t have a clue about Ukraine, or much else:

.

“I just can’t get past the elections fraud and bribery.”  Mr. Harper and Co. have stolen the half billion or more of the former Canadian Wheat Board which rightfully belong to farmers. He is in the process of giving (not selling) these assets to the Saudi Arabians who are anything but democratic. Harper have spent $578 million on Ukraine so far, $400 million of it are loans that he knows Ukraine will never repay. Now it looks like Harper closed our veterans offices in order to pay for the Ukraine neo-Nazi government that is waging war against its own people.

.

Harper is an embarrassment to Canada. Who likes to keep his dealings and negotiations with China and other foreign interests secret. Who uses public service institutions, like CRA to intimidate opposing voices. . Harper thinks attacking Putin is a sure vote-getter, instead it just makes him look like a hypocritical fool. All I can say is Mr. Harper, will you please shut up!  The last ten years at the helm Harper has only been   plotting on  how to stay in power. Harper is as bad as Brian Mulroney.  Interesting how Israel is accomplishing their goals through Canada/Harper. If you also do think Harper is a Christian, then I’m an alien from outer space!!  Harper has no values.  He’s just a hypocrite spewing talking points .

.

The only difference between Russian ‘Democracy’ and that of the ‘Western democratic world’ is that in Russia, Putin controls the Oligarchs. In the west, the Oligarchs own and control the politicians/puppets. Harper should apologize to Putin and then go on medical leave for professional help.  Harper is an embarrassment to Canada and a danger to world peace.  Harper a US, NATO, Jewish  puppet . Stephen Harper has Russaphobia.   What he’s really trying to cover up is that after using the cease-fire to once more regroup, rearm, resupply, and train new fighters, assisted by the US and its co-conspirators, his regime is preparing to undertake another expanded, US-backed military campaign to eliminate the Ukrainians opposed to what’s happened since the Ukrainian coup,.. Their first act upon seizing power in the coup was to eliminate russian language rights (the language of most of the eastern provinces of Ukraine).  .  The western oligarches  still do own  the media.  https://putin1hero.wordpress.com/

Are these the bad Western Values Harper Supports

http://www.democracynow.org/2015/5/19/headlines/new_ukrainian_law_honors_nationalist_groups_that_aided_nazis

.

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

.

What are Harper’s MAJOR accomplishments for Canada…. a strong oil sector with pipelines to market? a strong diversified economy? record job growth & low youth unemployment? a strong auto sector? better health care? a cleaner environment? senate reform? a democratic beacon for the world? improvements for First Nations? NONE of the above?..

.

Harper is a threat to Canadian democracy.   Harper’s talks tough, then hides in closets when the firing starts.   A peacekeepers job is to get both sides in Ukraine to agree..  Yet, the small minority of  Jewish backed troublemakers  including Harper  is blocking this cause.. Not to mention the fact that even highly respected scholars say that the USA  and Canada under Harper, since he’s really a GOP puppet are oligarchies.  Harper has indeed humiliated Canada and made us irrelevant. We were once respected , Having Harper next to our Flag is a Disgrace and a Disrespect to our Flag.  Only the Canadian Media gave him any notice, coverage at the G6 too. No one else world wide did. Not even the US.

.

  The Conservatives  like the Liberals have both shown what they are capable of and it wasn’t pretty. , not nice…  Most Voters no longer trust the Conservatives or the Liberals

.

The NDP   Thomas Mulcair is  poised for clear shot at becoming prime minister as NDP surges in polls ..  All of this follows in the wake of the latest good news for the official Opposition: a Corporate Research Associates poll that shows the New Democrats resurgent in Atlantic Canada – from 14 per cent to 29 per cent in the past three months – at the expense of Justin Trudeau’s Liberals, who sagged from 56 per cent to 43 per cent.  But what really matters is Quebec, where there are strong signs that Mr. Mulcair may be able to repeat the late Jack Layton’s miraculous breakthrough of 2011. An Ipsos poll released last week has the NDP at 41 per cent in Quebec, with the Liberals far behind at 25 per cent.

RCMP officers missed an opportunity to stop gunman before he entered Parliament

The   Mounties will scrutinize spending of the Senate’s top leadership along with that of several other past and sitting senators. They include Senate Speaker Leo Housakos, recently named to the top job by Prime Minister Stephen Harper; Conservative government leader Claude Carignan; and Senate Liberal caucus leader James Cowan. All three were among 21 pegged by auditor general Michael Ferguson’s report as owing money.   So the RCMP  wants to review findings on all 30 senators flagged for questionable expenses should  also start of with it’s own personnel as well.

.

It does not take a report written a year later to confirm I was right  about the bad RCMP, Security in Canada.    

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/10/27/unprepared-a-wake-up-call/

.

  Fire the bad cops And don’t try to give us all  the crap that any  bad police officers can be next still retrained, reformed .. the police themselves tend not to believe that any of the bad guys can be reformed    “The RCMP they are gaining a reputation for being more incompetent each day. What is  meant is that they are losing credibility as a police agency.   They should be called the RCIP, Royal Canadian Incompetent Police”  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/11/27/the-pretentious-useless-cost-ineffective-rcmp/

RCMP officers missed an opportunity to stop gunman Michael Zehaf-Bibeau before he entered Parliament because a radioed warning of his approach came out “garbled,” RCMP Assistant-Commissioner Gilles Michaud said Jun 03, 2015 after the release of four reports into the Oct. 22 attack.  The report on the RCMP’s deployment on Parliament Hill, conducted by the Ontario Provincial Police, also cites a lack of “operational preparedness,” including planning, training and resources.  The report stresses the approach to security and protection on the Hill is “highly inadequate” and concludes the shooting was a “grim reminder that Canada ad the RCMP itself s ill-prepared to prevent and respond to such attacks.” The reports come as the cost ineffective  RCMP is set to assume control of a new Parliamentary Protective Service and take over sole responsibility for security in and around Parliament Hill.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/rcmp-missed-chance-to-stop-oct-22-gunman-michael-zehaf-bibeau-opp-report-1.3098489

.

A garbled police radio transmission failed to immediately alert RCMP officers that an armed Michael Zehaf Bibeau was storming Parliament Hill on Oct. 22, 2014, an Ontario Provincial Police report has found.

A woman with a baby carriage first alerted a female RCMP officer on the Hill about a man with a gun, RCMP Assistant Commissioner Gilles Michaud told a news conference Wednesday.

As the terrified woman attempted to seek shelter in the back of the officer’s cruiser, the officer tried to radio others about Zehaf Bibeau, who had forced his way inside a ministerial limo and was driving towards Centre Block.

However, the officer’s radio message came out “garbled” and no one understood what she was saying, Michaud said.

Another officer saw the limo approaching, but did not realize that Zehaf Bibeau was inside.

The gunman then made his way into Centre Block, where he was shot within seven seconds of entering the building, the OPP report says.

Zehaf Bibeau was shot 31 times, including two shots that would have been immediately fatal, according to the review.

The House of Commons and the RCMP released the redacted versions of the OPP report Wednesday. The names of all the officers and civilians involved are redacted in the OPP report.   The belief of many Parliamentarians is the RCMP officers on Parliament Hill are unhappy with their assignment and are only posted there temporarily.

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

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

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

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

.

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

The repeated lies and exaggerations of the western media about Russia , and Ukraine  is criminal, appalling.

NATO, Europe and America are going to risk the end of the world war for a corrupted, racist Ukrainian government.    The  Ukrainian oligarch, billionaires,  undeniably mostly Jews, are totally corrupt, and that includes the oligarch Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko .  The Ukrainian  agency established to fight corruption in Ukraine faces challenges, both within Ukraine’s government and from the country’s wealthy oligarchs.  People are being sucked into supporting an incompetent, corrupt, cruel Ukrainian government that most Ukrainians won’t tolerate,  a real moral dilemma too.  Yes  it is the extend of their outright lies, fabrications they do still undertake to make Russia look bad, the villain AT ANY costs that is unacceptable..  With the social media people have contact world wide and many can find the truth from many other medias..

one of the most read topics here is the subject of bad police officers in Canada

All Police force members are to held accountable for their actions on the job. And  Members of the Police forces  should be held to a higher standard when it comes to the law because of the trust we put in them to enforce the law. They should get severely punished for their failure to do so, especially in circumstances where they abuse their position to try and cover up their very poor behaviour.  Abuse of authority and  Manipulation of the truth is well worthy of jail time for all bad police officers too.

.

A democratic, free nation never needs to fear any oppression, perversity  intimidation even  by police or the state.  Free speech is still a valid right for all too, not just for the bad persons, cops.. escalating violence by anyone leads to more violence.  The use of police force — against minorities and whites alike — is so poorly monitored that there is no precise accounting of how many citizens are abused, killed by officers, much less  the RELATED crucial details which tend to be  manifested only by the fact that citizens are posting unsettling cellphone Police videos and pictures of police brutality and because  of the many the records  are visible mostly from news media reports, some crucial details. Still details of  the race of officers and suspects, often are missing.  But still Canada has an ugly history of police abuses now too. The Police can do their part to repair their tarnished  images by firstly to acknowledging that  the person ‘s  rights, as an equal  the one right in front of them a person that the Police  force is supposed to  be  serving and protecting. even  to protect  people under arrest. And  people around the world are demanding more accountability from the  Governments , Civil and public servants, Police and all professionals too  

.

J36 .

Few bad  police  officers are ever charged and found guilty.. Less than one percent..  Face it one of the most read topics here is the subject of bad police officers in Canada which clearly indicates the citizens concern on this topic too. . The Police in Canada as well do owe a “special duty” to the “justice system,”, “Citizens” and all members of the police owe a special duty to be faithful to the justice system and the  taxpayers .

.

“When the perpetrators of any crime are police officers sworn to uphold the law, the objective of their denunciation also has heightened significance. “Public confidence in the honesty of the police is fundamental to the integrity of the criminal justice system.”. .

. 2 .

All persons in leadership office do also now have to face higher penalties as an example standard now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most  people is that all persons  in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included are always to be exemplary in behavior, conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, and thus to do so they now are also to be exemplary judged, prosecuted for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks. . 281 . Unacceptably too many officers facing criminal or police act charges remain suspended for years, using loopholes and stall tactics to stay on the payroll as long as possible before resigning or retiring. Officers convicted criminally are still paid, unless they are incarcerated and can’t report for duty, because only a police act conviction can lead to termination. Many officers facing criminal or police act charges remain suspended for years, using loopholes and stall tactics to stay on the payroll as long as possible before resigning or retiring. Officers convicted criminally are still paid, unless they are incarcerated and can’t report for duty, because only a police act conviction can lead to termination. .

.

Yes now what also has already raised the ire of the Citizens is that taxpayer’s cover costs for officers who are charged, but not convicted, of a criminal or disciplinary offence especially at a time when there is some criticism about the ever-increasing police budget. It is absurd that police are suspended with full pay while the local authorities, the Justice Department investigate , the court as well, all which can take years even. Paid leaves are unacceptable. The manner in which the administrations, criminal justice system handles cases involving police officers is driven by anything but the principle hat we are all equal in the eyes of the law.. Yes when the Police or the senior public officials are under investigation by the police, they should, at the very least be suspended at least with half-pay until the investigation concludes, to maintain public confidence in the system. . .

Four years after one of Hamilton’s highest-ranking police officers was suspended with pay, he has collected more than half a million dollars in salary and is eligible to retire without ever answering to his police act charges. Due to legal delay tactics and a controversial ruling by an adjudicator, are paving the way for Inspector David Doel to stave off his hearing until he can retire . If that happens, he will get his full retirement package, keep the money he “earned” while suspended and the 13 charges he faces — including having pornography on his police computer, having sex on duty and using police equipment to spy on an alleged former lover — will vanish. http://www.thespec.com/news-story/4232642-handcuffed-how-accused-cops-avoid-a-date-with-discipline/

.

After almost $600,000 in salary paid to him during more than four years of suspension, disgraced Hamilton police inspector David Doel is … comfortably retired. http://www.thespec.com/news-story/4442557-clairmont-retirement-saves-disgraced-hamilton-cop-from-charges/

.

And what constitutes even for the RCMP “gross misconduct” and a firing offence? Sexual incidents involving members are not tolerated. Neither, for that matter, are most cases of drunk driving and assault. But criminal convictions do not always lead to dismissals, and internal RCMP sanctions, if they result at all, can be weak. Serious cases of RCMP misconduct are not unusual, particularly, it seems, in B.C., where court documents outline serious indiscretions and allegations. Reporters have also obtained lists of RCMP adjudication board decisions that describe shocking behaviour and admissions by officers on active duty http://www.bcpolicecomplaints.org/bc_police_complaint_commissioner_stan_lowe_rollie_woods_coverup_vancouver_vpd_taylor_robinson_brutality.html . .

The Police Managers, Politicians, Police Unions, the Police themselves are Facing Nation Wide Outrage , Public Anger  Canada wide   is an UNDENIABLE problem in how the police do their jobs. . So how do the administrators  deal with it? They threaten laws suits against those who try to complain..

.

All Police officers do not only need to maintain the respect and good will of citizens to do their job effectively, they also depend on that good will in their salary, pensions and benefits, in which they have been even far more successful than other public employees in recent years. . The undeniable present lack of trust of police by the minority community is also unacceptable. .

.

When Police enforcement goes bad, the police and the police unions historically close ranks around suspect officers Police PR and these Police cover-ups will not do. . It is important for the police unions, Police managers to become honestly self-critical about police conduct and to not blindly defend each and every egregious incident by officers.

.

And the criminal justice system should be doing what it was supposed to do, carry out real, valid   justice against the police now too. . These total ongoing increasing costs in defending bad officers which will also next result in fewer officers on the street . All Police criminal trials can be expensive. A multimillion-dollar legal bill for five former Toronto police drug squad officers is absurd. John Schertzer and four other officers were convicted in June of attempting to obstruct justice. Three of the officers were also convicted of perjury…

.

All police divisions need to hire, train, supervise, retain, to property train and/or supervise officers and to conduct a fair and impartial investigation even against police officers, . Any Police officers can even be charged for “unlawful detention,   battery, false arrest and unreasonable search and seizure,  the use of excessive and deadly unjustified, unreasonable, and illegal use of excessive force, including deadly force .

.

About the money. Looking more at concerns that many citizens have raised in recent years about police practices, many are about money and police departments’ roles in collecting it—whether to supplement their own or their municipality’s budget. Even there is a concern about the usage of radars, automated speed cameras and whether their use was being driven by public safety goals or a desire to maximize revenue and not  reducing  the deaths of citizens in car accidents. The re is  serious concerns about the immoral  behavior by the Police department and court system aimed at advancing revenue collection rather than public safety—and that fact that too many of those efforts were managed to ensure that the Police department was “bringing in revenue at the desired rate.” Creating a way for police activities to become partially self-funding, and setting them up in that way that as rather “criminals” seems to be politically attractive and has the approval  of the Police itself. 

.

It is too common for small towns even like Canmore Alberta  to falsely raise revenues from traffic enforcement..

.  

 Watch out for the RCMP speed trap in Canmore , Alberta as you leave Banff park.. it generates the RCMP millions and millions of dollars per year.  ( Revenue generating ) “Speed limits in the mountain parks are set with an eye toward preventing collisions with wildlife.” ( and how often does that occur? once a year?).  

.

Canmore  the home of the perverse Canmore Traffic court, and RCMP  traffic ticket revenue generation as I have already written about.

.

  Police do love to lie and say that all accidents are mostly speed related, to justify their fat cow cash grabs, especially in Alberta and in Ontario now too.. they lump all of their homemade statistics as the accidents, deaths related all to speeding.. but not in reality to drunk driver, bad drivers, road rage, poor roads, bad snow cleaning..  This is also still simply not acceptable. There is a direct link between DRIVING and collisions. The MORE you drive, the more likely you are to be involved in a collision and the more likely you are to get seriously hurt . So the police will now give tickets to all drivers   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/06/20/watch-out-for-the-money-making-speed-traps/ .

.

About the municipalities and their false collection of revenue through traffic fines these municipalities “victimize those whom they are designed to protect.” and these practices are “immoral.”  The additional taxation of the citizens through traffic enforcement is unacceptable even if it s falsely being carried out Canada wide. What’s the point of fining people for violating the rules of the road? Surely it is to ensure motorists are driving safely and not endangering others. That obvious point, it seems, is lost on Canada’s municipal and provincial governments, which are increasingly treating traffic tickets as just another source of revenue http://news.nationalpost.com/full-comment/national-post-view-raising-revenue-on-the-roads .

.

About 10 years ago, police charged an Alberta driver with careless driving for flashing his headlights at oncoming drivers to warn them of a speed trap ahead. The driver fought the ticket. At trial, the Crown argued that flashing high beams was dangerous because it might startle other drivers thereby distracting them and causing accidents. The judge wasn’t buying that. He ruled that drivers flashed their lights at one another for plenty of reasons, some of which enhanced safety — such as reminding another motorist to dim his brights. Besides, the judge added, the government’s principal purpose in setting up speed traps was to ensure drivers operated their vehicles at a safe rate of speed. It was not to raise money through fines. So since light-flashing motorists served the same purpose as government speed traps — keeping traffic within the speed limit — the government had no authority to end the practice of one driver giving another a heads-up. http://www.edmontonsun.com/2014/10/23/revenue-crucial-for-photo-radar-gunter

.

Speeding is not a major cause of  vehicular  accidents  but drunk driving rather is. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/?s=speeding

.

Winnipeg residents are up in arms because the city has been collecting record amounts of money from fines on drivers who break the rules, in part because it has refused to let drivers know what the rules actually are. Revenue received from photo-radar tickets increased 25 per cent between 2013 and 2014, generating $14.6 million last year — the equivalent of a $22-a-year tax for every resident. The city also took in $4.5 million from other types of traffic tickets. Part of the increase was due to the introduction of new rules lowering the speed limit in school zones and doubling fines in construction zones. http://news.nationalpost.com/news/canada/winnipeg-traffic-tickets

.

Photo radar’s real goal..  Are motorists school-zone scoff laws or haplessly feeding a cash cow? http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/opinion/analysis/photo-radars-real-goal-299297351.html . .

Even the RCMP are known to be unprofessional as well as  cost ineffective.. even alcoholics and so are many other police forces in Canada now too. I have dealt with the RCMP 6 times and rigthfully have no respect left  for the incompetent,  lying , pretentious RCMP. In fact I  had been abused  by the RCMP in Canmore Alberta  twice and next I saw firsthand how the RCMP  lied, covered up their own.. Say no to an RCMP police State  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/11/10/rcmp-managers-abuse-their-employees-and-get-a-ridiculous-punishment-for-it-next-too/ .

.

The per versed  municipal courts too often do lie at the heart of this corrupted police, justice system now too.. Their  criminals out of citizens who want to abide by law and then they the citizens  can’t get jobs that would bring in taxes clearly has the devil’s support. . These municipal officials need to be charged with corruption and racketeering. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/07/15/they-often-do-steal-the-designated-monies/ .

.

While the goal of having every call for Police service fast and effectively, actively engaging diverse communities, preparing for security threats like terrorism, and responding to societal problems as varied as drug abuse, mental illness, youth violence and human trafficking, having discretionary resources to allow the police flexibility in their efforts to do all those different tasks seems to be a viable goal, the devil is always in the false diversions, Promotions and empire building. These are certainly competing goals here. If the Police Management, officers start getting overly rewarded for how much revenue they bring in, the legitimate  concern becomes whether their law enforcement action will become driven more by the goal of revenue and less by the goal of public safety, service as is too often the case. They should not be forced to think more like a sales person than a public servant. . It shouldn’t be a surprise that the prospect of police departments generating revenue would seem like a great idea to municipal leaders and to the police leadership. As the ability to achieve promotional goals is significantly driven by having the monetary resources available to do so.

.

During the financial crisis, Provincial, federal and local budgets are hit hard. The pain of tight budgets has been felt across the board in many jurisdictions and the resources available to police departments fell, requiring changes like service and staff cuts.”

.

Yes the citizens rightfully do the government, police, courts, to be effective at minimal cost, thereby limiting the burden of taxes on the public. But Citizens “wouldn’t expect other public mission agencies—the public health department, for example—to become profit centers, and we shouldn’t expect that from law enforcement.” . A Perceptions of police officers as merely collection agents rather than public protectors cannot help but undermine that legitimacy and trust. Too many citizens have lost confidence in the police amd the justice systems. . . Amongst the major Citizens concerns are all of the related taxpayer’s is the high legal costs of the lawyers with their high lawyer. rates for a start , example of $470 per hour and hourly rates of $275 for a lawyer with six years experience, $260 for a first-year lawyer, $230 for an articling student and $235 for a law clerk should make us more costs conscious as well . Among the absurd legal fees approved this year was a bill of $280,000 for the successful defence in provincial court of a constable charged with assault bodily harm during the arrest of a suspected drug dealer. “The fees were substantial due to the protracted period of time it took to conclude the matter,” . And even if acquitted of criminal charges, all charged police officers accused of wrongdoing should be the focus of a coroner’s inquiry, a civil suit or a complaint to a civilian review agency. . see also https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/01/21/so-who-realy-protects-the-canadian-citizens-from-the-too-often-bad-cops-bad-rcmp/ .

.

Needless to say police resources are often misused where even the mayors do instruct the police to find out all they can about their opposition members too.  ” and it all is still unacceptable! Free speech is a right for bullies, crooks, abusers only it still seems in Canada now. Police already have arrested me for complaining about the Calgary Police in the Calgary Police chief office even.. the charge was talking out loud in a public place.. Many people are shocked to discover free speech is not being allowed too often in many places in Canada,  on the net, in churches, letters to governments, to the news editors too… the police have visited me or objected now at least 7 times in response to my writings.. still decades later I  am still rightfully openly complaining about the much too many bad police supervisors and the too many bad acts of the so called professionals, the police included. The abuse of the citizens is not acceptable anywhere. . .

THERE ARE MUCH TOO MANY BAD COPS IN CANADA -FIRE THEM ALL NOW

No cop is above the law. Too bad for them they are paid to work still too.

.

Police still fail to catch most of the real criminals including the car thieves, and the Fraud perpetrated over the Internet which still is a growing citizen concern in Canada and throughout the world. The police always claim they lack resources, they will never have enough resources if they reuse to do a decent days work for their pay. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/03/24/the-police-cannot-get-the-crimminals/  .

“A new Alberta police database will track citizen’s every interaction with police, and it can be used without a warrant or even a supervisor’s permission”.. they had an old system already do doing this too..   the police falsely too often do not observe the laws..   . The Alberta government has passed new legislation designed to reduce the number of  complaints against police officers. The changes, which include new restrictions on who can launch a complaint, more powers to dismiss frivolous complaints and provisions to shorten appeals, are Unacceptable. .

.

Alberta is clearly another  police state.. where I got arrested for failing to pay a speeding ticket, 3 tickets from the same cop in Alberta even, and twice on the same spot in Canmore, Alberta by the RCMP, I next got no tickets for decades in Quebec and elsewhere. Ironically the same Conservatives who preach the letter of the law approach on others, tend not to practise it too often themselves, tend to feel falsely they are above the law.. the law of personal accountability.  I even got arrested in the Calgary Chief of police office for talking too loud, I had said you cops are crooked  while trying to file my rightful   police complaint. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/03/24/the-police-cannot-get-the-crimminals/

LAZY, INDIFFERENT, IMMORAL, BAD POLICE, BAD JUSTICE MINSTERS, BAD SOLICITOR GENERALS  is not a new aspect in Ottawa, Ontario, Alberta, Quebec, BC,  and in the rest of Canada.  A useless , no good, bad Conservative politician  is not any better for any of us over a useless , no good, bad Liberal  politician in Canada now too.
.
 
SO NEVER  EXPECT A FULL HONEST INVESTIGATION WHEN CLEARY THE RESULTS WILL SHOW BAD COPS, BAD ATTORNEY GENERALS, BAD MINISTERS WHO HAVE NOT BEING DOING A GOOD JOB. ALL UNACCEPTABLE.  NOW WHY IS IT BAD PEOPLE DO NOT CHANGE NEXT BESIDE THE FACT THEY LIKE TO DO BAD THINGS, IT IS ALSO CAUSE THEY FALSELY  REFUSE TO ADMIT THE THINGS THEY DO ARE BAD.

.

 You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors,  police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers, bad PERSONS   who STILL DO say that ALL OF  bad people, INCLUDING the ALCOHOLICS, the bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. 
.
 NOW WHY IS IT BAD PEOPLE DO NOT CHANGE NEXT BESIDE THE FACT THEY LIKE TO DO BAD THINGS, IT IS ALSO CAUSE THEY FALSELY  REFUSE TO ADMIT THE THINGS THEY DO ARE BAD.
.

The RCMP maximum 10 days punishment is always absurd, permanent dismissal is what is always needed with the bad cops and their clearly bad superiors who had managed and hired them too.. Bad solicitor generals and bad Justice Ministers, bad Premiers, bad Prime Ministers as well should all be fired ASAP.  The Canadian Justice is too often an empty one. The establishment cover ups for it’s own and prevails.   Imagine that we have liars for justice Ministers and cops too.

DON’T BE STUPID AND BELIEVE ALL THE LYING SPINS AS TO WHY IT TAKES SO LONG TO INVESTIGATE THE BAD COPS.. I have had many experiences in laying simple complaints against bad cops that never got anywhere cause the investigators were clearly pretenders.. in Contrast the investigations of all citizens clearly would not take so long..
 .
Decades and decades later the police are still  covering up for their own again and again but the police are not the only bad professionals who do this these days as well, so do the Hospitals, doctors, nurses, civil and public servants, governments… When it comes to dealing with the rightful needs, complaints of the ordinary citizens our Canadian civil and public servants, politicians and their representatives too, and most church pastors now too, they are still mostly unacceptable liars and  PRETENDERS, LAZY, GOOD FOR NOTHING PERSONS,  and that has been mostly my undeniable experiences the last 4 decades now too..  How about having now some real professionalism.

They the police are an essential part of our community for sure, but they all also do need to be fiscally responsible . . We do till do need to Manage EVEN the RCMP more effectively. There are about 19,200 regular members and another 3,760 civilians in the RCMP. RCMP racks up $800M in overtime in 5 years The total does not include extra duty pay for standby or operational readiness. http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2012/12/04/rcmp-overtime-costs-harris.html

Now “it’s also true that the police costs in general, and the related police salaries in particular, are now out of control. My very contacts with the police for decades have also left me seriously wondering what these people do. As far as I am concerned they are all already overpaid. . Most police officers are very well compensated overall, with too many making well over $100K per year, and they still do get a very generous pensions and many paid days off. Right now they are also paying retired officers, who are collecting their full pensions, $75 an hour to walk around the airport and babysit crime scenes. That’s all thus the equivalent of $150K per year. . The total spending on police services nationally has doubled since 1997, is reaching $12-billion. While the average Canadian income has grown by 11 per cent over the past decade, the average police salary has grown by 40 per cent. . The cost of Policing is doing to municipal budgets what health care is doing to provincial budgets: threatening to consume them.” Both systems do need better cost control management too..

.

Canada’s Police Among the Best Paid in the World. While the volume and severity of crime in Canada have been steadily declining for the last decade, police strength has gone in the other direction. There are now 200 officers for every 100,000 people – an increase of 9 per cent since 2001, though homicides rates are at their lowest in more than 30 years. Some high-crime cities, such as Regina and Winnipeg, have high police strength, but so, too, do cities such as Toronto and Montreal, which rank low on the crime-severity index. The number of Criminal Code incidents per officer has declined steadily since peaking 20 years ago . Unlike other public-sector employees, many municipal police forces continue to receive annual raises that outpace inflation. From 2009 to 2011, expenditures on police salaries and benefits increased by 5 per cent across the country, while other police operating expenditures fell 4 per cent, Statistics Canada reports.

.

A first-class officer in Canada’s big cities now earns $80,000-$90,000 a year on average – before overtime and benefits. That makes them among the most generously compensated police in the world. During this year of hard-pressed public finances, the Toronto Police Association negotiated an 11.5-per-cent pay increase over the next four years for its members. Officers get 18 annual days of sick leave, and can bank unused leave, half of which can then be paid out in salary. They can retire at 50, with full pensions, after 30 years of service. http://terrywhitehead.ca/canadas-police-among-the-best-paid-in-the-world/

 .

The cost of policing cannot continue to rise indefinitely in Canada, or cities will end up bankrupt. Pools, camps, parks and libraries will have to close. There are other municipalities with the largest police officers per 100,000 population and they have still some of the worse crime statistics. Adding more police officers especially bad ones does not necessarily guarantee that we yield better results. .

LAZY, INDIFFERENT, IMMORAL, BAD POLICE, BAD JUSTICE MINSTERS, BAD SOLICITOR GENERALS  is not a new aspect in Ottawa, Ontario and in the rest of Canada. SO NEVER  EXPECT A FULL HONEST INVESTIGATION WHEN CLEARY THE RESULTS WILL SHOW BAD COPS, BAD ATTORNEY GENERALS, BAD MINISTERS WHO HAVE NOT BEING DOING A GOOD JOB. ALL UNACCEPTABLE.

.

The sad truth about how many  Canadian cops get convicted for on-duty shootings? None.. says it all too..
