As if the oil downturn, recession is not enough for Alberta

alberta

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency confirmed on Friday that it had found a case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), also known as mad cow disease, in a beef cow in Alberta.  BSE — a progressive, fatal neurological disease — is believed to be spread when cattle eat protein rendered from the brains and spines of infected cattle or sheep. Canada banned that practice in 1997.  Exports of Canadian beef were repeatedly  badly hit in 2003 after the first case of BSE was found on a farm. A fresh discovery of BSE may close borders to Canadian beef and reduce the price of beef for Canadian Consumers again.

.

The  scenario that’s unfolded in Alberta in the past month is frightening .  The drop in oil prices has hit Alberta like a bomb. Few saw it coming.   A long-term over supply means “the new equilibrium price of oil will likely be much lower than over the past decade.”  So the news out of the oil towers in downtown Calgary, Edmonton gets worse every day. Everything from employment to local real estate markets are starting to  seriuosly suffer. Job losses in the Alberta oil patch have become almost daily events in oil patch and are even mounting  as the oil price collapse is pushing the past-vibrant Alberta economy into a dramatic downward spiral,  meaning more than 60,000 lost jobs . The Alberta  Government is facing $21-billion resource revenue shortfall over three years. Finance Minister, Robin Campbell, announced the upcoming budget will have a 9 per cent cut in program spending. In addition, the province will cut five per cent across the board, which will mean a $2.2-billion reduction in overall spending, year over year.  Likely nothing, including health care and education, is considered  untouchable.  “They’re destroying business confidence by threatening to tax anything that moves — tax on sugar, tax on gas, Alberta health-care premiums, and raising our 10-per-cent flat tax rate.”  Alberta’s premier Jim Prentice has said public-sector unions must do their part in light of low oil prices, as he called the present wages for teachers, nurses and other civil servants unsustainable. The cities of Calgary and Edmonton, both of which  depend on significant cash infusions from the province, will likely have to put their dreams on hold for a long while.The budget cuts trigger outrage in Alberta.  ” The news was reminiscent of the mid-1990s when then-premier Ralph Klein — faced with a crippling, $20-billion debt — gutted parts of the provincial civic service, eliminating thousands of jobs. Grants to schools, hospitals, universities and municipalities were frozen. ”  People in other parts of the country are saying  Albertans have not resided in real world for some time.  Only now are there concerns about the Alberta’s poor as the spending reductions could have severe consequences for family, child and disability agencies that rely on government grants to pay staff and administer social services. The pain felt elsewhere in Canada  now in Alberta is real.

.

Never mind what the spin doctors will say about Alberta’s future, the  present home of Canada’s prime Mister Stephen Harper  as the present reality is  that Alberta is mainly an  oil and gas, tourists, dependent on its resource sector and  the province has long relied on both the economic activity and the direct revenue from royalties and land sales to underpin government budgets but now this bubble has burst again,  the Oil’s price plunge means a bumpy ride in  all  sales, the economy in Alberta.   ‘Oil Prices are not going to bounce back:’ Prentice gloomy about quick oil recovery. Oil’s price collapse sends shiver across Alberta’s real estate market. Home prices fall also  in Calgary as real estate chill deepens.  Sales are down 7.5 per cent versus a year ago, while the  new listings have   “gushed” 42 per cent higher.  The Bank of Canada’s decision this week to slash its trend-setting interest rate a quarter of a percentage point to 0.75 per cent will not help to pay the high home mortgages many have there. You also cannot borrow more money, or buy more when facing a job cut.  School fees in Alberta triple in five years.   The out-of-pocket cost of sending a child to public schools in Alberta nearly tripled in five years as boards became increasingly dependent on fees to meet their budgets, and the Edmonton police are focusing more energy on   property crimes which  have climbed significantly. There have been 23 break and enters, 28 thefts from vehicles, and 20 thefts of vehicles in the area during the first few weeks of 2015. That is double number of property crimes the neighbourhood experienced at the same time in 2014 .  “The fact that these school fees have increased during a period when this province had record revenues is just not fair to the average Alberta family,”

Alberta’s surprise recessions are not much of a surprise to the wise… for false pride still comes before a great fall.. lay off the too many abusive cops, bad city hall employees as well in Alberta and save the money now too. You have to be rather kind, nice to everyone, even the Albertans now too, cause you do not know to whom you will go begging for help next as well.  In reality History repeats itself.. remember the 1980’s. 2009-10 when in Alberta Jobs were lost, homes went into foreclosures, property values went down due the flood of homes for sale on the market. divorce increased. Sadly they in Alberta do not learn not the first, second or the third time. When they were rich, proud and arrogant the Conservative leaders of Alberta were too proud to heed to others, to take advice… but now that they are facing serious ,drastic economic downturn they merely pretend they are ready to listen.. and how long will that next last? Instead of saving , planning effectively for a rain days the politicians of Alberta were living high on the hog, spending the citizens money, and not really caring about the citizens own good welfare. ” The Alberta government didn’t have a plan unless you consider shovelling money out the back door as fast as it came in the front to be a plan. “Making use of the revenues” meant spending the revenues. When times were good it outspent every other province in the country on a per-capita basis. It may have been a Conservative government in name, but its spending was liberal, in every sense of the word. Many Albertans told them to save more, even the Liberals. It might be hard for many Canadians, particularly in hard-hit Ontario, to feel much sympathy for this western province. After all, there was a distinct cockiness in the way “The New West” asserted its newfound position of fiscal superiority this decade over Central Canada in particular.” They had often rubbed it all proudly in our face, Alberta’s wealth, it’s importance, no taxes, a great future, and what ever before that.. Because too many Albertans were openly bashing the poor people for decades as well, now they too do have to walk in a poor man’s shoes themselves.. I REMEMBER WHEN MANY ARROGANT ALBERTANS, POLITICIANS USED TO FALSELY BOAST ON THE NET ABOUT THEIR PROSPERITY.. and I would reply they need to be really now more considerate of the poor people and the rest of Canada for they too will ONE DAY be on social aid, EVEN asking other Canadians to help them.. it is funny how reality comes to pass with time even in Alberta.

The OIL PRICE DROPS impacts are spreading across the economy, which the arrogant government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper has held up as being a huge beneficiary of energy-sector expansion. Alberta and other provinces reaped major financial rewards as the industry plowed tens of billions of dollars into operations and hired armies of workers as oil boomed. No more!  “The oil downturn is also complicating Ottawa’s finances as the federal government prepares a pre-election budget , the price collapse prompted the government to delay its 2015 budget. The Finance Minister Joe Oliver’s Nov. 12 economic update projected a $1.9-billion (Canadian) surplus for the coming year based on an assumption of $81 (U.S.) oil. Since then, the Bank of Canada has opted to use $55 oil for its forecasts, and earlier economic projections of a significant rebound in prices this year have evaporated in recent weeks.” The country’s largest private mortgage insurer Genworth MI Canada Inc.,  says it expects rising losses on its portfolio of Alberta mortgages this year.  The Alberta mortgages in the last two years,  borrowers tended to have relatively high loan-to-value ratio, with equity averaging just 16 per cent in 2013 and 9 per cent in 2014, due to slow home price appreciation and borrowers paying off less of the principal on their mortgages in those years, the company had  said. Genworth Canada’s own stock has plummeted 25 per cent since November.

IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE THAT THE BAD GUYS DO NOT LIKE THE TABLE TURNED AGAINST THEM.. TO BAD FOR THEM.. I LIVED IN ALBERTA FOR 15 YEARS AND I SAW THAT THEY THEY HAD FALSELY REFUSED TO SEE THE HAND WRITING ON THE WALL.. TOO OFTEN TOO.

.

(Mat 7:3 KJV)  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5  Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

.

Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit;  (Jer 9:6 KJV)  

.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7

.

In the last 10 years, crime rates have fallen roughly 27 per cent but costs have risen 44 per cent in policing and 33 per cent in corrections. Our prisoner population has managed to stay constant.  Is that a paradox? Or is that because those in the system are smart enough to ensure they all keep working and our prisons remain full, even though there are far fewer crimes. Also the report notes “the most embarrassing lacunae in Canadian data” is the lack of useful information on our courts — “we have no systemic way of assessing whether the courts are getting more or less effective in dealing with the cases that they see, let alone understanding how much as a society we are paying. For a developed nation, this is disappointing to say the least … How bad is it?”  It’s appalling — even mischief cases take more than half a year on average to process.  First Nations represent about four per cent of the population but more and more of them are being imprisoned — from 13 per cent of the offenders in custody in 1998 to 20 per cent a decade later. In Saskatchewan, 80 per cent of inmates are native. In Manitoba it’s 70 per cent, in (Racists) Alberta 40 per cent.In those three provinces, aboriginal people also are least likely to be given probation or conditional sentences. That is a major scandal that demands investigation..  http://www.vancouversun.com/Mulgrew+Cost+crime+rises+crime+rate+falls/10296393/story.html
.

Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves very ones best interest… too often still missing in the PROFESSIONAL BODIES, EVEN IN THE RCMP, police   forces, churches, ALL GOVERNMENTS  as well it seems too.

Canada’s revenue agency is not just a tax collector, but also as a criminal investigator.

MESSIANCS

 

If you are worried about the Canadian government keeping a secret file on you, stop worrying it has been doing that for decades by various means, in various places. Such as the Post Office.

.

OTTAWA — The federal revenue agency can now hand the police possible evidence of serious crime — including terrorist activity — that it happens to come across while reviewing taxpayer files. The Canada Revenue Agency gained the little-noticed new authority, which does not require a judicial warrant, through an amendment tucked into the government’s most recent omnibus budget bill. Previously, confidentiality provisions in the law prevented the agency from handing information about suspected wrongdoing, on its own initiative, to law enforcement. The exception was information that pointed to tax-related crimes.  The new provisions apply to offences including breaking and entering, vehicle theft, arson, corruption and kidnapping. They also allow authorities to pass along information about any offence with a minimum prison term, or one with a maximum sentence of 14 years.The list of offences is disturbingly broad and amounts to a fundamental change in allowing the agency to hand information to police without a court-ordered warrant — even when the alleged crimes have nothing to do with taxes

.

If you are worried about Revenue Canada’s effectiveness too, stop here too, they are not even capable to catch most of the people working under the table and not paying taxes even.

Quebec too has always wrongfully been soft on what collared abuses, crimes.

.

Everyone can and should be held accountable even for their acts and their words now too.. no matter who you are too.  Accountability needs to start with the politicians, civil and public servants firstly and not just the ordinary folks..  And do not forget the Federal Conservatives. You know, the people who had  claimed many years ago they were going to clean up Ottawa and end entitlements and misspending and were going to show us all a better way.. and now next  they did the same bad thing as all the others.. they even falsely still refuse to be accountiable for their expense accounts .. they clearly also  now have  much too many unacceptable liars still. We all tend to know by now that the crooks on their own do falsely  deny any guilt or wrong doings now  too. Water unrestrained runs down hill, so do self supervised Professionals, Doctors, Nurses, Cops, Mayors, Civil and Public Servants, RCMP,  Business persons  now too..  and self supervision does not work as  it tends to be only masturbation and not the real thing still too. The existing justice system has been the subject of persistent criticism from those who charge  that even the police are biased in favour of their fellow officers, establishment  and there is no  guarantee of impartiality, fairness. Civil liberty groups, student federations and social, human rights  activists have been rightfully calling even for an open,  full public inquiry into what they call excessive force against the Quebec Students by the police last spring and summer. An estimated 3,000 people were arrested or abused  during more than four months of widespread Quebec protests, social unrest. The other unacceptable Malaise of sweeping refuse, shit under the rug.. the civil servant managers serious, personal failure to deal with ther unacceptable, crooked, dishonest, thieving subordinates rather than disposing of them, firing them, putting then into the garbage bins is still needed as some people only learn to do good the hard way, when they feel real negative repercussions. I strongly suggest we get rid of these bad managers, firstly, immediately, all bad cops included..

A suspicious number of federal contracts for goods and services appear rigged to favour one bidder, suggests another  survey. The report, from the contracting watchdog at Public Works, provides further evidence of problems even with the Harper government’s credibility.. Remember when full accountability was the once promised word for His election?http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/watchdogs-report-suggests-problems-remain-with-federal-procurement/article4515095/

Blocked investigation into Alberta’s tailings ponds

oil-sands

Canada has blocked an investigation into Alberta’s tailings ponds by NAFTA’s environmental watchdog.

.

“It shows that the Canadian government is willing to circumvent institutions that make sure Canada upholds environmental laws.”

.

It’s the third time in a year Canada has successfully stopped NAFTA’s scrutiny of its environmental behaviour.

.

Two environmental groups and three private citizens had asked the commission to investigate whether tailings ponds were leaking into nearby rivers and creeks in northern Alberta.

.

In 2014, with Mexico’s support, it stopped investigations into polar bear protection and B.C. salmon farms.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/nafta-probe-of-alberta-s-tailings-ponds-blocked-by-canada-1.2935004

.

And “Canada, the oil sands’ poor image isn’t just a question of bad PR.  Anti-oil sands sentiment has made it nearly impossible to build the necessary pipeline connections producers need to get all that oil to market. TransCanada Corp.’s crossborder Keystone XL pipeline is in danger of being axed by U.S. President Barack Obama. The industry’s backup plan, Enbridge Inc.’s Northern Gateway pipeline to shipping terminals on the B.C. coast, has become bogged down in political and environmental controversy. Even TransCanada’s Energy East proposal, a sort of backup for the backup, has encountered unexpected political resistance in Ontario and Quebec—two provinces the diluted bitumen must transit through on its way to refineries in New Brunswick.”

.

” Alberta’s oilsands produce more greenhouse gas emissions than some European countries right now and will produce more than all of the world’s volcanoes in just 11 years if the pace of development continues, a new report says.  People will post 1001 excuses justifying this disaster.  http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2009/09/13/greenpeace-oilsands.html until it is too late to do anything about it..Remember Chernobyl” 
.

SADLY ECONOMICS DO CONTROL THE VIABILITY OF CANADA’S OIL SANDS PROJECTS.  Economics alone   SHOULD NOT now  control the direct oil sand extraction  process, engineering as well and also now not all firms are equally environmentally conscious, concerned so they all do now need to be better managed here, something that has falsely not been adequately done for sure so far.. and yes neither by the provincial or the federal governments HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB HERE. GREED AND PROFIT CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO OVER RULE SAFETY,  THE ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES, etc

I support this- Free education at all Levels

free eduation 7

Our public servants, politicians  too often do abuse, steal our tax money, eat in fine restaurants, travel abroad at our expense, should rather start to care about the rest of us!

President Obama says he wants Americans to view college as they do high school – a necessary step up the education ladder that anyone can take if he or she wants. That’s why he’s proposing an ambitious federal-state partnership to boost tuition assistance for students at public community colleges, he says. “What I’d like to see is the first two years of community college be free for everybody who’s willing to work for it,” Mr. Obama said

.

The public funding of Quebec universities is a crucial investment for the future of our society, The government’s rapid and resolute cost-cutting exercise is sowing uncertainty, antagonizing the populace and jeopardizing universities’ abilities to fulfill their mission. Nothing at this time justifies such a rigid schedule for achieving a zero deficit. If the government cuts too much too quickly, it will create another deep deficit — an educational deficit — that will affect society for decades. I know the goal is to leave Quebec prosperous for generations to come. To achieve this, we must have healthy universities.

.

The Finns also see education as a long-term investment, a cost of doing business as an advanced economy. Education is free from daycare to graduate school — not only for Finns, but anyone else who wants an education there. Since many post-secondary programs are in English, this brings in hordes of bright young foreign students. About half of them go home as friends of Finland; the other half stay, settle down, and help build their new country.

Consider another small country that offers free advanced education: Cuba. Since 1999, the Cubans have run the Latin American School of Medicine, perhaps the biggest medical school in the world. It offers free medical training to some 19,500 international students, meeting the standards of the Medical Board of California. Many of its graduates go home to care for poor people in their own countries, and hundreds are now working in West Africa to fight Ebola. In over fifty years of exporting medical aid, the Cubans have not only made money, but earned enormous international good will.   Even the Americans, have praised the Cubans’ battles against cholera in Haiti and Ebola in West Africa.

.

Now  to our own surprise, we turned out to be pretty good at teaching immigrants’ children and preparing them for more than hewing wood and drawing water, But not our own kids.. why is that?

.

Recently, the government of Lower Saxony (a German state) decided to abolish tuition fees and make Germany a tuition-free country once again. Free tuition-supporters in this country have noticed this development and are now asking, “Why not Canada?”

It is within this context that the Nova Scotia branch of the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) published a report in September calling for the elimination of all provincial university tuition fees by 2026.

CFS regional chairperson Anna Dubinski says that student debt hinders the province’s economy by deterring people from attending post-secondary institutions. The CFS argues that abolishing tuition fees would lead to greater participation in post-secondary education at little overall cost to the provincial treasury.

.

All children in Quebec should have free access to public primary and secondary education, says group,  Majority of Quebec students now want free education.  .

During the 2012 student strike movement, then-Fédération étudiante collégiale du Québec president Léo Bureau-Blouin argued in favour of a freeze on university tuition fees. An MNA for the PQ since September 2012, he now calls the government’s indexation of tuition fees a “great compromise” and “a big victory for students.” “I defended a tuition fee freeze when I was a student representative and I still believe this is a great way to increase accessibility to post-secondary education,” he said.   http://thelinknewspaper.ca/article/5808 

 

CLASSE, which speaks for 100,000 Quebec students, says free education is entirely achievable and used a march attended by several hundred people on Saturday to highlight the issue. “Our struggle for accessibility to higher education is not yet over,” said Jérémie Bédard-Wien, a spokesman for CLASSE.  CLASSE says it wants education to be completely accessible by being entirely free.     http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/with-quebecs-tuition-hikes-defeated-classe-presses-on-for-free-education/article4561489/

.

Free Medicare, Free education, as with free dental care and free public transit, are really a must.

.

Eliminating tuition fees for university students is an  efficient policy idea. Students themselves share in the benefits of higher education through increased lifetime earnings and the citizens next as well though the earned taxes paid. And we’d raise the quality of our own teachers by making their training free as well — if they qualify. And when the Students all do graduate, they shouldn’t have to struggle to pay bills for food, shelter or clothing, and thus will not be a burden to the state.

.

And  the Quebec government’s proposal to create a new watchdog to oversee universities  and Hospitals now as well is valid, natural.. some of the biggest crooks are even the educated folks..  and our Doctors, Nurses, Hospitals and the Police, RCMP are also now very poorly managed too ALL AT THE TAXPAYER’S EXPENSES.

Ironically and hypocritically  while the  Liberal Quebec Premier Jean Charest faced even still very numerous QUEBEC STUDENT PROTESTS about his plans to RAISE UNIVERSITY EDUCATION COSTS SIGNIFICANTLY and now also  faced  a new political  candidacy, the  anti-corruption hero Jacques Duchesneau, who had just  announced Sunday he is running for the Coalition Avenir Québec party , yes all while  the anti-corruption platform is also still  dominating too  headlines issue  in the Quebec province throughout the early days of this  QUEBEC  PROVINCIAL  ELECTION Campaign,  the same JEAN CHAREST HAD NOW  ALSO  NEXT HAD CLEARLY INDULGED in more corruption  by trying to BUY  VOTES, when he said, would  give $100 per child every year to families with children in public elementary schools. The initiative would begin in 2013 and would cost an estimated $45 million a year, assuming 450,000 eligible children.

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

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

Pub meetings?

The three worst months ever for the Harper government for the Conservatives, it was the session from hell.

Here are ten things that wrong for the Tories’ this session.

1. The beginning of the Justin Trudeau era

A Forum Research poll released late last month suggested Justin Trudeau has won the hearts and minds of a lot of Canadians: the pollster predicted that the Trudeau-led Liberals are on their way to a commanding majority government in the next election.

2. Bye bye Penashue

On May 13, Peter Penashue — the former cabinet minister forced to resign after it was learned that he accepted ineligible campaign donations — lost his byelection in Labrador to Liberal Yvonne Jones.

3. Brent Rathgeber and the backbench revolt

A month after rumblings of a backbench revolt, Brent Rathgeber resigned from the Tory caucus after his Conservative colleagues watered down his private member’s bill — Bill C-461 — meant to shine a light on public sector salaries. He didn’t go quietly, however, suggesting that backbenchers in the Tory caucus were a bunch of trained seals.

4. So, where’s that $3.1 billion?

The Conservative Party’s ‘fiscally responsible’ brand took a hit in May when the auditor general’s report slammed the government for losing track of $3.1 billion that was supposed to be earmarked for national security.  What no one in government can explain exactly where the money went.

5. Senate shenanigans

The Senate expense scandal continued and intensified during the spring session of Parliament.

The expense claims of Senators Mike Duffy and Patrick Brazeau — both handpicked by Stephen Harper — are under RCMP investigation, or at least review. Meanwhile Senator Pamela Wallin’s travel expenses are still being audited by Deloitte.

6. Harper says goodbye to a friend (aka former chief of staff Nigel Wright)

During this session of Parliament, Prime Minister Harper was forced to accept the resignation of his right hand man and now former chief of staff Nigel Wright.

Wright’s maleficence was a personal cheque of $90,000 to Senator Mike Duffy so that Duffy could repay his improperly claimed expenses. That transfer of funds is now under investigation by the RCMP.

7. A battle with Elections Canada

At least three Tory MPs were embroiled in very public disputes with Elections Canada during this parliamentary session.

In a letter, Elections Canada advised Speaker Andrew Scheer that MPs Shelly Glover and James Bezan be suspended from Parliament because of their failure to comply with the Elections Act with regard to their 2011 election campaign returns.

Glover has since filed an amended return. Bezan will take his case to court while a House committee will decide his fate in Parliament.

8. Robocall scandal not going away

In late May, in a court action brought forward by the left-leaning Council of Canadians, Federal Court Judge Richard Mosley ruled that the “Conservative Party of Canada or any CPC candidates” were not directly involved in any campaign to mislead voters during the 2011 election campaign.

But — and this is a big but — he also said that “the most likely source of the information used to make the misleading calls was the CIMS database maintained and controlled by the [Conservative Party].”

As Elections Canada continues their investigation into misleading calls in Guelph, this is a story that will certainly dog the Tories in future sessions.

9. Another Conservative rising star becomes a falling star

On Monday, Saulie Zajdel — a former Tory candidate and “regional advisor” for Heritage Minister James Moore — was arrested in Montreal and now faces a cadre of charges linked to the city’s ongoing corruption probe.

By itself, this story doesn’t do any damage to the Conservative’  brand. But put with the other Conservative appointees — Bruce Carson, Arthur Porter and Senators Patrick Brazeau, Mike Duffy and Pamela Wallin — it tarnishes the public’s opinion of Stephen Harper’s judgement.

10. MP Eve Adams, her hair, nail appointments and her cell phone

Earlier this month, Tory MP Eve Adams was forced to defend herself over allegations that she broke Elections Canada rules for claiming over $2,777 in “personal expenses” during the 2011 election, on things such visits to hair and nail salons, mouthwash and whitening toothpaste. She embarrassed herself again, this week, when it was learned that she received a $155 traffic citation for talking on her cell phone while driving on Parliament Hill.

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/blogs/canada-politics/three-worst-months-ever-harper-government-190821797.html

MONTREAL — A little more than a year ago, Saulie Zajdel joined Stephen  Harper for a happy-hour pub stop in Montreal as perhaps the Conservatives’ best  hope to win their first seat in this city in a quarter-century. Today, Zajdel is under arrest.  http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/saulie-zajdel-once-the-tories-best-hope-to-finally-win-montreal-seat-arrested-1.1329047#ixzz2WXCOtu59

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Finance Minister Jim Flaherty joined   brewery manager Colin O’Brien, and supply director Paul Armstrong at the Guinness brew house. http://www.canada.com/Stephen+Harper+Irish+adventures/8532787/story.html

Our Canadian Christian evangelical Prime Minister Stephen Harper makes an essential stop at the Irish Guinness brewery, he sure has fooled all those fundamental western Christians who voted from him cause they had been lied to that he was a  Christian evangelical abstainer    http://www.irishtimes.com/news/canada-pm-arrives-in-dublin-ahead-of-g8-summit-1.1430527

1 Peter 5 :8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your  adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may  devour:9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions  are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.10 But the God of all  grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye  have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11 To  him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.  http://kambulow.blogspot.ca/2013/06/the-possession.html
.

A professing Canadian Christian, of the bad Christian Missionary Alliance church, ( Stephen Harper)  lied to us, he next did not keep his promises of full transparency, or full accountability, and even that he would stop the perverse patronage hiring  system, deal adequately with a bad lobbying system, and what else?  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/06/03/harpers-patronage-hirings-alcoholics/

.

Calgary Conservative Convention coming where there will be plenty of booze, balloons, pancake breakfasts, bucking broncs and more bull. That’s all pretty standard fare even for a Christian evangelical Prime Minister. “There is some grumbling about how poorly the Prime Minister’s Office has  handled the whole (Sen. Mike) Duffy affair.”  On Wednesday, a Nanos Research poll conducted for the CBC found that 72 per  cent of Canadians said they were dissatisfied or somewhat dissatisfied with  Stephen Harper’s explanation of what he knew about the $90,000 personal cheque  written by the prime minister’s chief of staff to cover Duffy’s inappropriate  expenses. Only 27 per cent of those polled were satisfied or somewhat satisfied, which  indicates that since 40 per cent of voters cast a ballot for the Tories in May  2011, a large number of Tory partisans are not happy with this whole affair.”

.

Liberal MP Ralph Goodale recited a laundry list of PM Stephen Harper.s Conservative government appointees that have gone bad.

The growing list is staggering.

There’s Senators Patrick Brazeau, Pamela Wallin and Mike Duffy who are all under investigation and/or review for improperly claimed benefits.

There’s Nigel Wright, the prime minister’s former chief of staff, who gifted Duffy $90,000 — the RCMP is investigating this transfer.

There’s ex-Harper aide Bruce Carson who is currently facing charges of influence peddling.

Dr Arthur Porter was the head of Canada’s spy agency watchdog and is now wanted by Quebec police in relation to the province’s corruption scandals.

There’s former Labrador MP Peter Penashue who was put into cabinet by Harper but forced to resign after it was learned that he accepted ineligible donations during the 2011 election campaign.

And, on Monday, Postmedia News reported that Montreal RCMP are investigating a former Conservative Senate staffer and ex-candidate with a regard to a corruption probe into a “Parliament Hill renovation project.”
and there is more…

Stephen Harper had said his party would be better over the others,, we certainly did not think that mean he would have more bad gals and guys…

.

THE BAD senate Senate choices are revolting,  Harper handing Liberals more ammunition by his patronage appointment of senators. There are those like me who think the Upper House is nothing more than a high-priced retirement home for political hacks. it will cost hard-pressed Canadian taxpayers a fortune. Each senator makes $134,000 a year, or far, far more than the average person who toils at a real job. But wait that is just the beginning, add on their paid overseas  trips, expense accounts, etc. This was more about saving his government supporters than anything else.  Harper would have had a lot more credibility if he’d left the positions open and kept pushing for reform. “Harper’s own recent bad  appointment of senators indicates clearly still that Harper  cannot be trusted to work with the opposition parties as a minority government. Harper had once sold himself to Canadians as a different kind of politician, one who’d refrain from using patronage appointments to the Senate. A man who could be trusted to keep that and other promises.. Instead, Harper has fast become the kind of governing politician he once professed to abhor — one who routinely breaks his word. After insisting he would never appoint people to an un-elected Senate, the prime minister sent a staggering 18 curly-tailed snorters to the Red Room, confirming his election pledges aren’t worth the paper they’re written on.  Harper talks a good talk when it comes reality he has another side.. the one that shows up in the pub

.

Yes  Stephen Harper the Prime Minister he too now has showed us all he really was a liar, no better than the rest, and he has continued wrongfully too to hire more of his conservative friends into good government jobs.. so now do rightfully fire him TOO. http://thenonconformer.blogspot.com/2008/01/canadian-citizens-point-of-view.html

.
The whole truth comes out why you hired bad people  or about the drunk drivers,  poor now removal, road accidents, recession, Stephen Harper, city halls corruptions.. but first can you tell me why the poor managers allow all these civil bad public servants, senators, aides, MPs, MLA’s, MPP’s  in municipalities, provinces, Canada wide, fly all over the country, world wide, eat   fine food, drink alcohol,  in fine restaurants at taxpayer’s expense while the country is in a big recession? The sad Unacceptable taxpayer’s money abuses.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/02/14/clearly-an-unacceptable-abuse/
.
The continual mismanagement, budget deficit, tax payer money abuses and has there been even any changes in all this really? We all  really still do need still a full  review of the waste, fraud, and abuse that has plagued governmental efforts. What is also needed is a enforced, real program to remove public officials from office that take our money and abuse it, spend it on their own false pet projects while many of our people still are not getting the help that they need. You also did notice the cops do too often still  not  practice what they preach to others they themselves still do like to speed, and how many like to drink and drive still too? https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/02/11/the-whole-truth-comes-out/
.
We need to also stop electing liars and alcoholics too.. be for certain there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, and that there is a direct correlation between the people who are heavy alcohol users.. that they are the same persons who will also take bad drugs… and they will also be the same persons who also now do cheat , lie, steal, commit tax evasions.. as they have no solid morality
.
(Gal 5:19 KJV) Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/02/12/prime-minister-stephen-harper-let-me-repeat-myself/
.
If you drink 2 martinis at lunch time or supper time  for a start  you are definitely an alcoholic. Now the Provincial Governments, tend to now want to to reduce gambling or alcohol consumption for it is a great money maker for them, and too many Canadian politicians and cops do like to booze.. The problem with the Police or Politicians consuming too much alcohol, is that alcohol not only makes you a mental retard cause it does now kills your brain cell, alcohol also kills your emotions of compassion, and reasoning ability now as well..
https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/10/17/there-is-no-new-thing-under-the-sun/
.

Let us all also be clear about it too, pigging out, living high on the hog, or patronistic hiring practices is clearly an unacceptable  abuse, theft of the tax payer s money for certainty, taxpayer’s money were never, never even intended out for this mater. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/02/14/clearly-an-unacceptable-abuse/

.

A Liberal  alcoholic politician is now just as bad as a   Conservative alcoholic politician firstly.. and lies just as much..

.

It seems we have too many cheats, thieves, liars, alcoholics, adulterers for cops and for politicians still in Canada. and in the US..  the Obama included.. . for basically there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, it seems you are basically honest or merely another crook…  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/10/01/let-us-all-stop-electing-liars-or-the-alcoholics/

.

These days it is too hard to tell the difference between secular persons and  the professing Christians . Genuine Born Again Evangelical Christians are total abstainers from smoking, drugs, alcohol, cheating, lying, stealing, tax evasions, pornography, or rather all personal vices, Impairments Alcoholics now are also the  bad people but so are the drug users. They trend to cost significant expenditures for the taxpayers as well..

.

 People in leadership office do have to face higher penalties as an example now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those 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, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary  judged, prosecuted  for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks. So where is it?

.

“Obama smokes too much, and he needs to moderate his alcohol consumption.  I know I’m being subjective, but something about Obama’s facial expressions have looked a little off, particularly a tendency to smile or almost smile at inappropriate times. I had thought this was an example of the way liars smile when they think they are getting away with a lie. However, his expressions could also indicate he is being affected by alcohol. At a time when the nation faces significant economic and foreign problems, would any president who wasn’t an alcoholic brag about setting up his own brewery? Obama’s decision to brew his own beer indicates alcohol plays a major role in his life. Working class individuals might brew their own beer because they don’t get a feeling of personal accomplishment from their jobs. Obama is President of the United States. He shouldn’t need to brew his own beer to feel he’s accomplishing anything. A beer summit involving Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates and Cambridge police Sergeant Jim Crowley provides an example of how alcoholics think alcohol is a solution to problems. The beer summit isn’t the only time Obama has invited someone to the White House for a drink. Obama admitted in his autobiography that he drank heavily when he was young and he even took bad drugs.. There’s a strong possibility that Obama is an alcoholic like his father Barack Obama, Sr., and his half brother George Obama. Susceptibility to alcoholism is hereditary. As a nephew of a few alcoholics, I know that the only way alcoholics can avoid the negative affects of alcoholism is to not drink alcohol. Moderate use is not an option for alcoholics.  Could alcohol consumption combined with the high altitude explain his poor performance? This is most likely an indication that the O-man is seriously in over his head.Yes unlike his predecessor, former President George W. Bush, who refrained from cracking open a cold one in or out of the White House, Obama has enjoyed many a tasty beverage  even since moving into the Executive Mansion On a date night with the first lady in New York at Blue Hill, a West Village eatery, Obama opted for a wine that accompanied the five-course tasting menu, while Michelle sipped on two martinis. On the night he won the presidential election, Obama cracked open a bottle of Graham Beck Brut NV, a sparkling wine from South Africa. And just before he was sworn into office, Obama stopped by one of his favorite Chicago haunts, Topolobampo, and ordered wine pairings with the $90 “celebration” tasting menu. But, restaurant manager Kevin Casey says, Obama and the first lady have a history of ordering up a round of margaritas at the restaurant. “People are losing 5, 10, 20,000 dollars a day in the stock market, and he’s sitting there drinking a beer,” one caller said. “It’s insulting. There’s a lot of people suffering.” Another caller complained, “The president is the president 24 hours a day. I don’t think he should drink on the job.”  Obama could be a “high functioning alcoholic” (HFA). They usually don’t give obvious signs of being affected by alcohol and can function without those around them noticing any adverse affects on judgment or behavior. Sandra Rose believes that alcoholism would be consistent with Obama’s narcissist personality. She agrees that a recommendation of moderation wouldn’t be needed if a patient was already drinking in moderation. The fact that those around Obama praise everything he does would reinforce any feelings Obama has that his drinking isn’t adversely affecting him. Their tendency to idolize him would blind them to any indications he had a problem with alcohol” An alcoholic Obama could appear to be functioning normally but still have impaired judgment that would affect decision making. He  And what you now here too will your ignorance here too of all this now?  the tip of the iceberg of his bad morality too..  A Duke University study lists President Richard Nixon as one of our previous alcoholic presidents. He was forced to resign from office because of poor decisions associated with the Watergate scandal. President Ulysses S.Grant who was an alcoholic is considered to have had one of the most corrupt administrations.

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

canada-justice

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

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

.

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

.

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

.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cleaning one’s own house first is in order even here too..  Too many McGill administrators, doctors are already known to be bad managers, money hungry while the university too readily takes our tax dollars now too and too allow falsely often abuses us too.. McGill is already very unpopular amongst the majority of Quebec French speaking persons. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/03/02/mcgill-university-montreal/

Not much of a surprise? The tip of the iceberg is being revealed only as  the overall depth of corruption will take much more time apparently to uncover, corruptions that likely permeates the whole project. Birds of feathers tend to flock together. And no one should tell us that  these initial suspected persons, now  were even  just isolated individuals acting on their own without the vast help and knowledge of any others now too. Higher education never insures one’s good moral standings.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/26/mcgill-administrators-likley-run-their-hospitals-the-same-way/

The McGill administrators in reality very likely run their hospitals and patients the same way.. very poorly and inadequate. At least that has been my own rightful complaints often here too https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/26/mcgill-administrators-likley-run-their-hospitals-the-same-way/

“Now we have the developing case of another Harper appointment that raises questions about the PM’s judgment. The PM appointed Porter to health advisory boards and then, oddly, recommended to the Privy Council Office that Porter be named to the Security and Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC). Harper’s record for associating with  undesireables just keeps getting better and better. Now we have the developing case of another Harper appointment that raises questions about the PM’s judgment.  The PM appointed Porter to health advisory boards and then, oddly, recommended to the Privy Council Office that Porter be named to the Security and Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC).Less than two years later, Porter found himself chair of our spy services oversight committee, a position in which he had access to all of Canada’s intelligence secrets. He was appointed to the Board of Air Canada and made a Queen’s Privy Councillor.  Porter also was connected to self-described arms-dealer and former (alleged) Israeli intelligence officer Ari Ben-Menashe. The two were involved in a dubious business deal involving a $120 million investment by Russia in “port development” in Africa.  It turned out that Porter was also claiming to be ambassador plenipotentiary of Sierra Leone, one of the most corrupt countries on earth — an obvious conflict with his SIRC role.”  http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/story/2013/02/27/mtl-mcgill-hospital-arthur-porter-arrest-warrant.html

And former adviser to PM Stephen Harper  had “grave doubts about putting people in jail” because of  child pornography    http://www.calgaryherald.com/Wildrose+dumps+campaign+manager+Flanagan+over+child+pornography+comments/8029677/story.html …

Politicians who land in hot water need help managing the crisis and protecting their reputations. Lucky for them, the Conservative Sen. Mike Duffy ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE TOO MANY BAD APPOINTMENTS OF PM STEPHEN HARPER, Duffy over the past several weeks, offered a master class in how to get through the worst of it AND NOT IN A NICE WAY TOO.  Lie, Belittle, Blame. Dodge, Deflect, Flee, Admit very little..  as clearly he is learning from his boss the PM.. And were all previously promised a better Government and this now is it?

Education does not insure morality Nor are professionals better persons

Marois Quebec government’s proposal to create a new watchdog to oversee universities  and Hospitals now as well is valid, natural.. some of the biggest crooks are even the educated folks..  and our Doctors, Nurses, Hospitals and the Police, RCMP are also now very poorly managed too ALL AT THE TAXPAYER’S EXPENSES.

THE NEWS MEDIA IS DETAILING THE CORRUPTION FOR DECADES OF EVEN THE ENGINEERS.. NOW I HAVE BEEN FOR DECADES WRITING ABOUT THE MUCH TOO MANY UNACCEPTABLE WHITE COLLARED CRIMES, ABUSES BY THE PROFESSIONALS.. EVEN WHERE THEIR OWN SELF REGULATION TENDS TO BE MERE MASTURBATION AND DO NOT BELIEVE THE LIES ALL OF THE WRONG DOINGS IT IS IN QUEBEC MOSTLY, IT IS CANADA WIDE   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/?s=pROFESSIONALS

“MONTREAL – Testimony by the head of a local engineering firm at the  Charbonneau Commission this week has seriously tarnished the reputation of the  engineering profession in Quebec, the director of the province’s professional  order of engineers said Friday. André Rainville, executive director of the 63,000-member Ordre des ingénieurs  du Québec, said he was shocked by engineer Michel Lalonde’s testimony Thursday  that implicated at least a dozen major engineering-consulting firms in the  province in a corrupt system of price-fixing and illegal funding of former mayor  Gérald Tremblay’s political party. Other firms named by Lalonde include: Dessau, CIMA+, Tecsult, SM, BPR, Roche,  HBA Teknika, Claulac, and Leroux, Beaudoin, Hurens & Associés. “

CLEARLY A VAST AMOUNT OF SENIOR, MANAGERIAL QUEBEC ENGINEERS HAVE BEEN CONFIRMED TO BE A SIGNIFICANT PART OF THE QUEBEC CORRUPTIONS, ALSO NOW  IT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO KNOW FROM WHAT UNIVERSITY THEY GRADUATED.. 

“The steady stream of revelations before the Charbonneau inquiry makes it easy  to become bleary or blasé. But this week’s testimony deserves extra attention.  It contains the most disturbing disclosures yet.Here’s why.

Until now, we’ve learned that systemic collusion and corruption in public  works contracts have existed mostly at the level of the Mafia and those  construction companies whose business is generally confined to Quebec.

What Michel  Lalonde told the Charbonneau Commission on Thursday broadens our  understanding of systemic crime among contractors, and alarmingly so. He opened  what is not so much a can of worms as a barrel of snakes.

Lalonde, president of Génius Conseil (better known under its former name,  Groupe Séguin), served in effect as the coordinator of collusion among all —  repeat, all — of Quebec’s largest engineering-consulting firms. They include not  just SNC-Lavalin, often called the flagship of Québec Inc., but also CIMA+,  Dessau, Génivar, Roche, Tecsult and several others. They often subcontract work  to the previously implicated construction companies. Their leaders regularly  make the society pages,

Lalonde himself was not one of the big boys. That his company was smallish  made him, he explained, the cartel’s ideal emissary in dealing with Montreal  city hall — he could be relatively impartial. Between 2004 and 2009, he said, he  worked with the city’s then public works director (Robert Marcil), the then  treasurer of the ruling party, Union Montreal (Bernard Trépanier), and the then  executive-committee chair (Frank Zampino) to steer contracts to the appropriate  member of the cartel. Bribes would then go the supposedly neutral  contract-selection committee, composed of civil servants, so that it would  ratify the choice. Depending on its size, each cartel member allegedly  contributed either $100,000 or $200,000 in cash to Union Montreal in the 2005  election year, for a total of $1.3 million in illegal donations. The firms would  also kick back three per cent of their contracts to the party, Lalonde said (as  previous witnesses have said the construction companies also did).

To be sure, this isn’t the first time executives of these high-class  companies have been incriminated for local bid-rigging. Last fall, for example,  the  past president and a past vice-president of SNC-Lavalin were charged with  fraud in connection with their company’s supervision of the McGill  University Health Centre’s superhospital. In 2011, police  also charged two Roche executives for fraud in suburban Boisbriand. Here, according to Lalonde, we have companies representing the upper crust of  Quebec’s corporate world that:  Subvert local democracy by illegally swamping a political party’s electoral  war chest, with the result that when that party gains power it is beholden to  these corporations. Corrupt not only Montreal’s political structure but also the senior ranks of  Montreal’s supposedly neutral civil service. (True, earlier testimony has shown  that the  Mafia and construction companies had corrupted several civil servants,  including Gilles Surprenant and Luc Leclerc, but the elite cartel allegedly  bribed their boss, Marcil.)”  Read more:  http://www.montrealgazette.com/Henry+Aubin+Inquiry+opens+barrel+snakes/7874233/story.html#ixzz2J5IMUkgs

 Also “two class-action lawsuits in Ontario and Quebec that are seeking more than $1  billion on behalf of disgruntled shareholders. The suits allege that SNC-Lavalin violated securities law by misrepresenting  that it had adequate controls and procedures to ensure accurate disclosure and  financial reporting.”

LOOK ALSO NOW  HOW USELESS THE POLICE, RCMP AND THE GOVERNMENTS HAVE BEEN IN ALL OF THIS TOO

Education does not insure morality Nor are professionals generally  better persons over others as any wise persons knows that there are plenty of immoral cops, realtors, lawyers, nurses, doctors now too. When you criticize openly the  bad persons , especially bad cops, doctors, nurses, professionals you tend to get a false denial, remark in response  like you are crazy, you need professional help. They still really  cannot face the reality there are things in their life that need serious, drastic changes. These people in denial are the ones who often need professional help for their own short comings, sickness. Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about their own unacceptable acts.  Corruptions occurs now Not just in Churches, amongst the police, politicians, civil and public servants. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/?s=professionals

.

NOW REALLY WHAT DOES WE “ENSURE OUR POLICIES AND PROCEDURES RELATED TO CONTRACTING AND PROCUREMENT REFLECT BEST PRACTICES” MEAN? WHEN IT IS UNENFORCED TOO OFTEN. AND BEST PRACTICES FOR WHOM? THE HOSPITAL, THE DIRECTOR, THE GOVERNMENT, OR THE PEOPLE? OR THE CROOKS STILL? ALL THIS STILL IT MEANS NOTHING IF YOU ARE STILL STEALING AND COOKING THE BOOKS LIKE MANY OTHERS ARE DOING? IT STILL DOESN’T MEAN THAT THE PROCESS HAS INTEGRITY OR IS DEVOID OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES? WHEN IN REALITY NO ONE FALSELY REPORTS THE CRIMINAL; ACTIVITIES STILL AND WHITE COLLARED CRIME IS STILL COVERED UP NO ONE GOES TO JAIL..

Promised past Accountability and Transparency were mere election gimmicks now too.. A bad Liberal is just as bad as a bad Conservative always as well. So who is being fooled by all this? The liars do only mostly fool  themselves as to who and what they really are.

So a grey cloud also hangs over the McGill University Health Centre, a  symbol of the anglophone community’s ongoing place in Quebec. Duhaime’s fraud  charge involves his successful effort to land the contract for the MUHC’s  $1.3-billion hospital.

” Since he left Montreal in late 2011, Dr. Porter has become a lightning rod for criticism – a dramatic shift from how he was treated for most of his seven years in Quebec, where he held several prominent public and corporate posts. In 2008, Prime Minister Stephen Harper appointed him to the civilian committee that investigates complaints about Canada’s spy agency, CSIS. In 2010, Mr. Harper made Dr. Porter the chair of the committee. Now he is the target of three lawsuits, all claiming that he has defaulted on loan payments that were made to him while he was in Montreal. The Quebec government has also released a report accusing him of allowing the McGill University Health Centre to slip into financial disarray and has assigned the network of six hospitals a special financial overseer, a move the government says is one step short of trusteeship. “

HOUSE CLEANING IS STILL VERY MUCH IN ORDER        

DON’T BE STUPID AND BELIEVE ALL THE LYING SPINS AS TO WHY IT TAKES SO LONG TO INVESTIGATE THE BAD COPS or bad professionals, bad civil and public servants..

Have you also noticed how the Canadian Federal Conservative government even  and it’s watch dog the RCMP are undeniably hesitant to prosecute their provincial counterparts for wrong doings? Tax evasions, citizen abuse, tax payer’s money abuses

Shit disease, C. difficile-related deaths highest in recent years is still totally unacceptable

IMAGINE THIS TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE STILL DYING FROM THIS DECADES OLD SHIT DISEASE AND CONTINUALLY, AND FOR DECADES EVEN IN QUEBEC, CANADA, AND NO ONE IS JAILED FOR IT.. NOT EVEN THE HEALTH MINISTERS

 

not-so-funny1

 Some things seem to never change, such as cold calloused, pretentious governmental Ministers, Health Ministers and their subordinates especially  included, mostly all  those pretentious, bad persons too who really do not care if the others live or die, as long as they alone survive  it seems still too.  Never mind what the big lying spin doctors say! Just cause some doctors and nurses think they are Gods, falsely do refuse to wash their hands, to stay clean does not mean they are right, it only means they are merely still murderers.  

Contracting the superbug C. difficile in the hospital often is fatal or at least increases a patient’s stay by an average of six days, putting serious financial strain on Canada’s health-care system. Seniors and Children are more seriously affected, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/11/03/children%e2%80%99s-hospital-of-eastern-ontario-struck-by-shit-disease/

C. difficile is a bacteria found in feces that causes severe diarrhea. It’s extremely common in hospitals because people usually contract it after taking antibiotics, which can kill good bowel bacteria and allow C. difficile to grow. What’s more, the bacteria can spread through surfaces like toilets, handles and bedpans, and hospital staff can spread it by not wearing gloves or washing their hands. It’s the most common cause of infectious diarrhea in hospitals, and one in 10 patients who get it will die, regardless of how sick they were beforehand. And according to the study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, it’s filling up already-crowded hospitals and draining the health-care system. U.K. doctors David Enoch and Sani Aliyu say the rate of infection can be cut by making sure heath-care workers practise good hygiene and don’t overprescribe antibiotics. http://www.torontosun.com/2011/12/06/c-difficile-lengthens-hospital-stay-study

MANY PEOPLE, HOSPITALS WORKERS THEY DO NOT WASH THEIR HANDS, AFTER THEY GO TO THE TOILET STILL..  AND THIS IS NOT THE DARK AGES NOW! IN THIS MODERN DAY AND AGE THE CHANCES ARE STILL QUITE GOOD EVEN IN CANADA THAT IF YOU ARE ADMITTED TO A HOSPITAL YOU WILL GET A HOSPITAL ACQUIRED SICKNESS AND SOME OF YOU WILL DIE AS A RESULT TOO! WHY?? CAUSE NO ONE PUNISHES BAD DOCTORS AND BAD NURSES FOR A START. IMAGINE THAT YOU WILL DIE DUE SOMEONE ELSE’S FAULT AND NO ONE WILL GET EVEN PUNISHED FOR IT STILL. BEING A PROFESSIONAL IN THE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM IS A SERIOUS JOB AND IT ALWAYS SHOULD HAVE SERIOUS PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY TOO.. SO WHERE IS IT?

We do not live in the dark ages for shit Disease is caused by poor cleanliness, poor hygiene, poor sanitation at the Hospital, who have been hiring NOT ONLY LAZY BAD employees but they have FOR AN UNACCEPTABLE DECADE NOW TOO AND MANY THEY been cutting back on their MAINTENANCE COSTS and this has been unacceptable CLEARLY LEADING TO their criminal murderous acts OF THE CITIZENS. Do take ALL OF THE HEALTH MINISTERS KNOW BEFORE A FIRING SQUAD AND SHOOT THEM, for THAT WOULD BE A RIGHT START TOO. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/09/01/shit-disease-c-difficile-or-what-ever/

.

A study by Quebec’s public health research institute (INSPQ) shows deaths related to clostridium difficile infections in 2010-2011 were the highest they’ve been since 2004. A total of 619 Quebecers died from C. difficile over the course of 2010 and 2011. And one death is always still one too many here too.. C. difficile is most often acquired in hospital, and  the disease is highly contagious. According to the study, the McGill Montreal General had the fourth-highest incidence rate of C. difficile infection in the period studied, with 15.4 cases per 10,000 patient days.  The McGill Jewish General Hospital was even harder hit over that time period, with 16.9 cases per 10,000 patient days. As I had here seen it firsthand.. It also pops up whenever a house cleaning isn’t rigorous. The causes are are well known. There is a false reluctance to prevent it’s spread by doing more active cleaning as it costs money to do this.

Too bad still that  both the Jews and Arabs falsely, deliberately, equally do refuse to live in peace! and cannot forgive one another but demand an eye for an eye.. more hatred..  Asking all of us taking sides in a much more complex issue over them living in peace, their false religious wars are also here.. and they do  too often falsely demand, want to enforce their one side rules upon all of the others.. Less any one gets lost, there are Good Jews, Good Arabs, good Americans, good Canadians and bad ones too.   But it seems both Jews and Arabs are equally guilty of hate, unforgiveness, revenge, theft, murder, an eye for an eye approach  so we can really not support either side as being mainly in the right. Isn’t it nice that I can still choose who my friends are and I can still choose to still know the real truths..

Christian Zionists are believed to number around 40 or 50 million in the United States. The movement’s support for Israel derives from a desire for the return of Jesus on earth, which many Christian Zionists falsely do say can only happen if Jews are returned to the Holy Land. Therefore, supporting Israel is a necessary part to many Christian Zionists’ faith. This has led well-known evangelical leaders, like John Hagee and Pat Robertson, to falsely label those opposed to Israeli policies as enemies. Analysts say this ideology has made its way into the US government, and has been influencing US policy, most recently with their opposition to Chuck Hagel as Defense Secretary. Christian Zionists have also supported the US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and have called for a war with Iran. –

“I  am glad to commend Stephen Sizer’s ground-breaking critique of Christian Zionism.  His comprehensive overview of its roots, its theological basis and its political  consequences is very timely. I myself believe that Zionism, both political and  Christian, is incompatible with biblical faith. Stephen’s book has helped to reinforce  this conviction.”  http://www.cc-vw.org/articles/reviews.htm

IS NOTHING SACRED ANY MORE AND WHEN WILL IT ALL END!

FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL,  THE QUEBEC CORRUPTION MESS IS STILL JUST THE TIP OF A BIG ICEBERG TOO.. AND CORRUPTION EXISTS IN OTHER PLACES  SUCH AS IN THE PURCHASING DEPARTMENTS, AND WHAT HAS ALSO BEEN JUST AS DEPRESSING IS HOW LITTLE THE LAST 50 YEARS NOW TOO THE FEDERAL, PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENTS, THE POLICE, THE RCMP THEY ALL MOSTLY STILL  DID NOTHING GOOD ABOUT IT ALL TOO.. THEY ALL SEEM TO HAVE THEIR SHARE OF CORRUPTIONS , EXPENSE ACCOUNTS ABUSES.

They may be out of a job, but three disgraced Quebec politicians received tens of thousands of dollars in taxpayer-funded golden handshakes since leaving their government jobs. http://www.torontosun.com/2012/12/01/disgraced-quebec-politicians-showered-in-taxpayer-cash

“The symbol of Quebec’s high-tech know-how, the computer industry, took  a hit from the province’s interim auditor-general, Michel Samson, this week.  He said computer companies, many of which are Montreal based, exercise only  “weak competition” for the half-billion dollars in contracts that the province  lavishes on computerization in a typical year. They also benefit from hefty cost  overruns. Sound familiar?

Although Samson found no evidence of collusion or corruption (that’s not his  job), he recommends that the provincial committees that review bids demonstrate  “more neutrality.”

Finally, the federal agency that oversees one of Montreal’s top  tourist draws, the Old Port, took an even stronger hit. The federal government, the Old Port’s owner, said  Thursday it will abolish the Old Port Corp. and hand management of the site to  Canada Lands Co., an agency with little expertise in running such a site. Public  Works Minister Rona Ambrose said she was considering the change even before last  spring’s headlines about expense-account abuse by the Old Port’s CEO, Claude  Benoît. But Ambrose also said she was making the change in the interest of “good  governance” — something the Old Port Corp. evidently could not provide.

What makes this week’s developments all the more discouraging, of course, is  that they are hardly isolated. Several other prominent Quebec-based global  engineering companies besides SNC-Lavalin have had their integrity strongly  questioned. As well, police are investigating not only the McGill real-estate  transaction but also one involving the Université  de Montréal and Catania. And so far as federal bodies go, the Montreal  office of Canada Revenue Agency has been shown to be riddled with officials in  bed with tax cheaters.

So a grey cloud also hangs over the McGill University Health Centre, a  symbol of the anglophone community’s ongoing place in Quebec. Duhaime’s fraud  charge involves his successful effort to land the contract for the MUHC’s  $1.3-billion hospital.

Authorities have not stated the specifics of the accusation, so the nature of  the MUHC’s involvement is uncertain. However, La  Presse reported on Oct. 1 that police are investigating whether SNC-Lavalin  made an irregular payment of $22.5 million to get the contract in 2010; it  also said police are looking into whether Dr. Arthur Porter, the head of the  MUHC until a year ago, was involved.

In a separate development this week, a document that the Charbonneau inquiry  made public shows that Yanaï  Elbaz, who quit the MUHC last year as its associate director general, has  kept curious company: He met 11 times since 2007 at the exclusive 357c club with  Paolo Catania, the construction honcho who has been charged with fraud in  connection with another major project involving public money, Faubourg  Contrecoeur. http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Aubin+will+mayor+this+mess/7635816/story.html

.

MERE FALSE PROMISES AGAIN TOO

Rinfret made the disclosure after Claudio Bussandri, chairman of the board of directors of the MUHC, announced on Monday that the health network’s audit committee “is taking steps to ensure our policies and procedures related to contracting and procurement reflect best practices.” http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/MUHC+director+Normand+Rinfret+questioned+UPAC+investigators/7646010/story.html#ixzz2E34GW4Tg

 Education does not insure morality Nor are professionals generally  better persons over others as any wise persons knows that there are plenty of immoral cops, realtors, lawyers, nurses, doctors now too.

Promised past Accountability and Transparency were mere election gimmicks now too.. A bad Liberal is just as bad as a bad Conservative always as well. So who is being fooled by all this? The liars do only mostly fool  themselves as to who and what they really are.

NOW REALLY WHAT DOES “ENSURE OUR POLICIES AND PROCEDURES RELATED TO CONTRACTING AND PROCUREMENT REFLECT BEST PRACTICES” MEAN? WHEN IT IS UNDEFORCED TOO OFTEN. AND BEST PRACTICES FOR WHOM? THE HOSPITAL, THE DIRECTOR, THE GOVERNMENT, OR THE PEOPLE? OR THE CROOKS STILL? ALL THIS STILL IT MEANS NOTHING IF YOU ARE STILL STEALING AND COOKING THE BOOKS LIKE MANY OTHERS ARE DOING? IT STILL DOESN’T MEAN THAT THE PROCESS HAS INTEGRITY OR IS DEVOID OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES? WHEN IN REALITY NO ONE FALSELY REPORTS THE CRIMINAL; ACTIVITIES STILL AND WHITE COLLARED CRIME IS STILL COVERED UP NO ONE GOES TO JAIL..
