Who is next?

The rate of women who died from causes linked directly to alcohol has increased by 26 per cent since 2001, compared with a roughly five per cent increase over the same period for men, according to Canadian Institute for Health Information. And more Canadian women are drinking to the point where they end up in hospital, or even die from it. These numbers only include conditions like chronic alcohol use disorder, withdrawal delirium, cirrhosis, acute pancreatitis and extreme intoxication – not conditions that alcohol is a risk factor for. And although they consume less, alcohol affects women negatively more. Each dose of alcohol is more damaging in terms of things like liver damage as well as simple intoxication.  More than 25,000 woman had alcohol-related hospitalizations in 2016-2017, nearly a three per cent increase from prior last year. The figures also show that in 2015 there were more than 3,000 deaths caused by alcohol in Canada, compared to 2,066 deaths caused by motor-vehicle accidents. Girls aged 10 to 19 have already closed the gap with boys. Women are drinking more heavily than in the past sadly.

.

Drinking alcohol has become a “normalized” part of life for the majority of Canadians, yet many don’t realize the potential health risks of downing wine, beer or spirits .  Mental health and addiction-related conditions were responsible for nearly 75 percent of those alcohol-related Canadian hospital stays. If all drinkers limited themselves to a single drink a day, we probably wouldn’t need as many cardiologists, liver specialists, mental health, medical professionals, and substance abuse counselors. Heavy drinking will take a toll on the body.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2018/02/14/the-truth-still-even-about-alcohol/

.

Alcohol consumption can lead to liver cirrhosis, dependence, withdrawal, acute pancreatitis, as well as chronic diseases like cancer  and Canada is a heavy-drinking country. Alcohol is the second-biggest risk factor for cancer. “It is one of the top-five risk factors for premature mortality, for life expectancy, for burden of disease and hospitalizations” Making alcohol less-advertised, less affordable and less available would help to cut down on the burden of disease,  but so far, “our political system doesn’t want to do that.” Neither the Liberals. NDP, or the Conservatives who love to tax it. Here is the government hypocrisy, it is the governments who control the sale of liquor, sell it directly to citizens, and they are full aware of the hazards of consuming alcohols, Yet the same governments are building more and more liquor stores, carrying out major marketing programs, adds to encourage buying booze.  It seems we have too many cheats, thieves, liars, alcoholics, adulterers for cops and for politicians still in Canada..for basically there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant.  No taxpayers money should ever  be used to buy alcoholics at any federal, provincial, municipal government functions. Really!   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/drink-alcohol-and-die/

.

We all also tend to know how too many cops and others do often despise others, mock the skid row persons, native alcoholic, drunks and yet hypocritically they do the same thing, even their peers.. consuming a vast amount of alcohol and they cannot see what negative effect it has on their personal life. 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 hypocritical 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.. Being a cop is part of a “professional or police culture” dominated by machismo and camaraderie where police officers spend a lot of time socializing with each other,   and often it involves alcohol.  “Drinking among police officers is often quite extensive and excessive, probably more so than in other professions,”

.

The Canadian taxpayer pays heavily for the health costs incurred from alcohol  abuse. Alcohol is a poison that is detrimental to one’s health and all persons who take bad drugs and alcohol suffer undeniably irreversible brain damage, death of brain cells, become more and more mentally  retarded . Even light and moderate drinking – up to one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men – could increase the risk of cancer, say researchers. Federal   Senators charge taxpayers for art, gifts, dining out and booze

.

The devil spreads many, many lies,  myths about beer, wine, drugs, being good and hangover cures.  Alcohol, or ethanol, is a sedative, hypnotic drug, and the intoxicating ingredient present in wine, beer, and spirits.  Depression is more common among substance abusers:   Although it is classified as a sedative, hypnotic drug, it has a stimulant effect in small amounts. Alcohol is known to be harmful to developing brains (from fetus to adolescence). Intoxication impairs judgment and can result in inappropriate and illegal behaviors such as sexual promiscuity, disorderly conduct, driving while intoxicated and acts of violence. Roughly 1 in 10 deaths among working-age adults results from excessive drinking. The most serious side effect of alcohol consumption is respiratory and central nervous system depression. When the amount of alcohol in the blood exceeds a certain level, or if other depressant-type medications are taken in combination, the respiratory system significantly slows down, resulting in a lack of oxygen to the brain. This can quickly progress to a comatose state and eventual death. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/04/01/alcohol-consumptiom-is-still-one-of-canadas-biggest-problem/

.

ALCOHOL IS  A  VICE AND NOT A NECESSITY.  These days you also so got to supervise daily even the politicians, even the civil and public servants  now as well, for it seems they will all run back quickly to their old tricks.. to their even bad habits of drunkenness, cheating, lying and stealing, and wrongfully next also they think they can get away with it. Clearly we as citizens have wrongfully elected too many thieves, liars, drunks, alcoholics into political offices… and they all now should still be fired, removed, recalled ASAP. Some persons rightfully maintain that prison,  job termination are still the main and best solution to this problem of alcoholics, drug abuses too. The real, root problem often is not the alcohol, or the drugs themselves, alone but rather one honestly dealing with themselves and their own real shortcomings  still too.The basic secret of all successful substance abuse termination programs are accepting personal responsibility, personal accountability,  the individual first personally has to admit he or a she  has done wrong, also admits he or she now does needs help,  admit that they is willing to take the help.. all three aspects are required still too. An appropriate real self examination on their own part is always needed firstly here  for it is also their  own real bad personal acts,  and related guilt that next contributes, contributed to his or  her own poor self image, fears, additional  problems..  especially more when things did not go the way he or she had planned beforehand .

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

September 13, 2015

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

.

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.

Doctors receiving falsely kickbacks

You all can easily know that I have said before here that one the things that makes any health care system bad is the much too many  money hungry doctors..

Too many Doctors are mainly selfish, self centered, want to get rich fast

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 West and Ukraine are looking dumber and dumber , liars

Putin the Hero

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.. It is funny how the…
