Report it ASAP


In Canada, sexual assault is a violent criminal offence ranging from unwanted sexual touching to violent, non-consensual intercourse, commonly referred to as rape.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was accused of “groping” a young female reporter on assignment in August 2000. “Like father, like son” reads the editorial.   

“Didn’t he learn through his vast experiences in public life, that groping a strange young woman isn’t in the handbook of proper etiquette, regardless of who she is, what her business is or where they are?”

Sexual assault and harassment are persistent forms of gender-based violence that are rooted in gender inequality. It is estimated that in one year alone there were more than 600,000 sexual assaults in Canada. Sexual assault is one of the most underreported crimes If you’ve been sexually assaulted, or sexually abused call the police, write to the news editors, make it public. Canada has criminal prosecution for sexual offences, abuses.

Canada’s Criminal Code has no specific “rape” provision. Instead, it defines assault and provides for a specific punishment for “sexual assault”. In defining “assault”, the Code includes physical contact and threats. The provision reads:

265. (1) A person commits an assault when
(a) without the consent of another person, he applies force intentionally to that other person, directly or indirectly;
(b) he attempts or threatens, by an act or a gesture, to apply force to another person, if he has, or causes that other person to believe on reasonable grounds that he has, present ability to effect his purpose; or
(c) while openly wearing or carrying a weapon or an imitation thereof, he accosts or impedes another person or begs.
(2) This section applies to all forms of assault, including sexual assault, sexual assault with a weapon, threats to a third party or causing bodily harm and aggravated sexual assault.
Interestingly, the definition ‘appears’ to include threats of sexual assault as a sexual assault itself. This suggests a person could be convicted of sexual assault without physically touching the victim if they make a threat of sexual assault

The Criminal Code also allows for increased penalties for sexual assault where the accused “wounds, maims, disfigures or endangers the life of the complainant”, see:

273. (1) Every one commits an aggravated sexual assault who, in committing a sexual assault, wounds, maims, disfigures or endangers the life of the complainant.
Aggravated sexual assault
(2) Every person who commits an aggravated sexual assault is guilty of an indictable offence and liable
(a) where a firearm is used in the commission of the offence, to imprisonment for life and to a minimum punishment of imprisonment for a term of four years; and
(b) in any other case, to imprisonment for life.

You can still sue or criminally prosecute a guilty offender even if the sexual assault occurred many years ago. Hold perpetrators accountable for their actions. If we don’t, we reinforce the notion that abuse and assault are acceptable. It allows abusers to defend and continue their actions.

Over a six-year period between 2009 and 2014, police reported 117,238 sexual assaults in Canada where sexual assault was the most serious violation in the incident. Almost all (98%) police-reported sexual assaults were classified as level 1 offences (assault without a weapon or evidence of bodily harm). According to the General Social Survey on Canadians’ Safety (Victimization), there were 22 incidents of sexual assault for every 1,000 Canadians aged 15 and older in 2014. This represented approximately 636,000 self-reported incidents of sexual assault. While anyone could be a victim of sexual assault, research has shown an elevated risk for women and young individuals.

Sexual assault offenders were most often men, acting alone and under the age of 35. Just over half of victims knew the person who sexually assaulted them. The rate of sexual assault was higher among Canadian especially aboriginals, woman, who were single, never married. Research has shown that individuals with disabilities—particularly women and those with mental disabilities—are at greater risk of sexual violence, which may be partially attributed to greater vulnerability, negative social attitudes and perceptions, and abuses of trust.


Substance, use drug use, binge drinking are associated with higher rate of sexual assault, especially among women. Evening activities—such as going to work, night class, meetings or volunteering, or going to bars, clubs or pubs—were all associated with higher rates of sexual assault Another life experience associated with higher rates of sexual assault was homelessness

The risk of sexual assault was impacted by marital status. Individuals who were single were about four times more likely to be sexually assaulted than those who were married or common-law. Age also had an impact: individuals aged 15 to 24 were over three times more likely to be sexually assaulted than those aged 35 and older.Aboriginal identity also significantly impacted the risk of sexual assault after controlling for other factors. Individuals who identified as Aboriginal were over two times more likely to be sexually assaulted than those who were non-Aboriginal.

A medical patient can become the victim of a sexual assault by a doctor. Sexual assault by doctors includes any inappropriate touching that goes beyond the required scope of the examination. It can also include the doctor performing unnecessary examinations, or intentionally not wearing gloves during an examination. Given that doctors routinely perform pap tests, pelvic exams, and other procedures involving intimate areas, patients are particularly vulnerable to sexual assault.

Students in Canada also are at risk of being sexually assaulted by a teacher or other school employee. sexual assaults against students are being reported more frequently in Canada than ever before. This is resulting in both an increase in criminal prosecutions of teachers and students suing for sexual assault.Taking action against the teacher and school is important and helps prevent others from being sexually abused. Such actions force schools and governments to take action to protect children and stop more sexual assaults from occurring.   If a student is sexually assaulted by their teacher, or by a school employee, the school board (government) may be found vicariously liable for the student’s sexual assault lawsuit. This effectively means that the government will have to pay a future settlement or judgment to the victim

0000 top (6)

Report all Sexual attack: “Has anyone forced you or attempted to force you into any unwanted sexual activity by threatening you, holding you down or hurting you in some way?” Unwanted sexual touching: “Has anyone ever touched you against your will in any sexual way…anything from unwanted touching or grabbing, to kissing or fondling?”Sexual activity where the victim was unable to consent: “Has anyone subjected you to a sexual activity to which you were not able to consent…where you were drugged, intoxicated, manipulated or forced in ways other than physically?”

EU own unacceptable hypocrisy..


I rightfully do not support  visas for Mexico, or any others  or Canada’s Prime Minister’s Stephen Harper’s discrimination, false partiality for giving mainly the good jobs to his friends..   but I want all of you to know the EU own unacceptable hypocrisy..

EU could recommend retaliatory visas against Canada over Czech visa restrictions Mon Sep 21, 7:33 PM BRUSSELS, Belgium – The European Union’s top justice official warned Monday he will push for retaliatory measures against Canada if it does not take steps toward lifting travel restrictions on Czech citizens by the end of the year.

“Meanwhile in CALAIS, France — French authorities dismantled and bulldozed a camp for undocumented migrants outside this English Channel port on Tuesday, rounding up almost 300 Afghans, Pakistanis and others who had gathered there for years in the hope of making clandestine journeys across the 22 miles of water to Britain.

Starting at daybreak, hundreds of paramilitary officers scuffled with migrants and campaigners from a group called No Borders as the authorities closed down the camp, known as “the jungle” by migrants and Calais residents alike for its location among the thorn bushes and sand dunes of Calais.

Hours later, yellow earth movers began flattening the makeshift shelters used by hundreds of migrants seeking to sneak — or be smuggled by organized gangs of traffickers — across the channel to Britain, which is itself seeking to tighten border controls against unwanted migrants. Workers with chain saws moved in to cut down the brush that had hidden the area from view.

The camp, with huts and a mosque made of packing crates, blankets and tarpaulins, grew after the closing of a Red Cross shelter for migrants in nearby Sangatte in late 2002. The operation on Tuesday had been loudly signaled by the authorities, and many migrants — possibly 1,000, according to news reports — had slipped away before the raid.

With migrants outnumbered by 500 riot police officers, the half-hour operation began at 7:40 a.m.. Under the gaze of about 200 waiting journalists, police dragged or escorted away the mainly Afghan migrants who had gathered in silence under a banner written in Pashto and English declaring: “The jungle is our house, please don’t destroy it — if you do so then where is the place to go?”

Some were led away in tears.

The immigration minister, Eric Besson, defended the operation on RTL radio Tuesday. “This is not a humanitarian camp,” he said. “It’s a base for human traffickers.”

At a news conference in Calais, Mr. Besson said 276 people, including 135 teenagers, were arrested and their fate would be determined on a “case by case” basis.

French authorities say some migrants will return to their countries of origin, some will apply for asylum in France and some will be expelled to Greece, the country where most of them entered the European Union.

According to Pierre de Bousquet, the Pas de Calais prefect who directed Tuesday’s action, shelter has been made available for those migrants wishing to seek asylum, while minors will be taken to hostels for people under 18. Others will be held pending deportation.

Human rights bodies have urged Paris not to return migrants to Greece, but Mr. Besson declined to comment Tuesday on whether he had raised the issue with his Greek counterpart on a visit to the country on Friday.

Khaled Hadarhy, a 21-year-old Afghan, was rounded up along with two friends who were 16 and 17. “We are all young, but we look old because the jungle has made us old,” said Mr. Hadarhy, a former policeman from Helmand Province who has been in Calais for four months.

“The police will come and we will do what they tell us,” said Exel Palav, 20, from Afghanistan.

Pierre Henry, president of a campaign group called France Terre d’Asile, said Tuesday’s operation was an effort to make the migrants disappear “like a coin in a three-cup magic trick,” displacing them to neighboring Belgium or the Netherlands.

“The operation in Calais won’t stop departures from Kabul,” he said. “The smugglers will find other routes that are more complex and more dangerous.”

The move to eliminate the tents and ramshackle housing around the port is designed to halt migrants without papers from getting into Britain, and to crack down on the smuggling networks that assist them.

“Smugglers will not lay down the law,” the immigration minister, Mr. Besson, said last Wednesday. He first announced the plan to dismantle the camp in April, responding to complaints from local businesses.

The closure took place as European countries increasingly use force to crack down on unwanted migrants. On July 12, Greece eliminated a makeshift camp in the port city of Patras; in May, Italy struck a controversial accord with Libya allowing it to turn back migrants’ boats in the Mediterranean. The European Union estimates that 500,000 people cross its borders without papers each year.”

Unacceptable RCMP coverup of the killing of Robert Dziekanski




CP VANCOUVER – A woman concerned about Robert Dziekanski a few hours before he was shocked by an RCMP Taser and died says an immigration officer at Vancouver’s airport deflected her concerns about the man. Gracie Churchill-Browne, a Spanish interpreter, told a public inquiry into his death that Dziekanski looked “tired and frustrated” and clearly couldn’t speak English, but the officer she spoke to told her “he’s a big boy.” So much for the competent, professional  RCMP!


Dziekanski inquiry resumes after three-month break to focus on RCMP email VANCOUVER, B.C. – The public inquiry into Robert Dziekanski’s death resumes Tuesday to examine an internal RCMP email that put the hearings on hold three months ago.  

 VANCOUVER, B.C. – The lawyer for Robert Dziekanski’s mother says the B.C. government should replace the RCMP with a provincial police force.  Dziekanski died nearly two years ago at Vancouver’s airport after he was shocked with a Taser by four Mounties.  In his final submission at a public inquiry into the death, lawyer Walter Kosteckyj says the RCMP acts as the provincial police force in British Columbia, but doesn’t want to be held accountable to the provincial legislature.  The RCMP officers themselves have claimed the provincial inquiry has no jurisdiction over them.  And Kosteckyj says the government of Canada will make the same argument in its final submissions this week.  He says that’s undemocratic, and the only solution is to stop using the Mounties in B.C. and instead create a province-wide force.

VANCOUVER, B.C. – At best, the four RCMP officers who confronted Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver’s airport and stunned him several times with a Taser panicked, the lawyer for Robert Dziekanski’s mother told the public inquiry into his death Monday.  At worst, they arrived with a plan to use what amounted to excessive force, Walter Kosteckyj said in his final submission to the inquiry.  Either way, the Mounties failed to live up to their training and the law, he said.  “The Tasering of Mr. Dziekanski at its best would be characterized as a premature, hurried and panicked response, and at the worst was a premeditated and planned attack,” Kosteckyj said  Kosteckyj said the officers acted improperly from the moment they entered the airport, not taking time to assess the situation or communicate with Dziekanski, and resorting to the Taser within seconds of approaching the man.  Despite the officers’ claims to the contrary, Kosteckyj said the swiftness of their response suggests they approached Dziekanski already planning to use the stun gun. Kosteckyj spent more than 10 minutes listing discrepancies, including the Mounties’ repeated assertions that Dziekanski stood through the Taser jolts, had to be tackled to the ground, and was coming at the officers yelling with his hands above his head when the Taser was fired.  And he said airport officials made the “unconscionable” decisions not to call the facility’s own firefighters after Dziekanski was stunned and to not bring an automatic defibrillator to the scene despite a standing policy to do so.

Poland disappointed with lack of charges in taser case Globe and Mail   Poland remains disappointed that no criminal charges were laid against four Mounties who tasered Robert Dziekanski, suggesting video footage of the 2007 incident encourages an instinctive reaction that “wrong-doers be made accountable through criminal

Mr. Robert Dziekanski did not deserve to die but he died because incompetent, immoral RCMP police officers neglected  their training and obligation to the public, clearly acted excessively and in haste,  and wrongfully escalated  almost instantly to the conducted energy Taser weapon, had killed an innocent  man in the process.  The four RCMP officers on the scene had wrongfully overreacted to the situation before them. An innocent man died as a result of their misjudgment and excessive use of force. “

RCMP A(15)

Their after-incident reports at the time disagree with the video evidence and, more damagingly, with their sworn statements to the Braidwood commission. They each claimed Mr. Dziekanski refused to co-operate with them, although the video evidence seems to indicate he, being a non-speaker of English, was complying the best he could with commands they gave by gesture. And while they insisted he became “combative,” picked up a stapler to use as a weapon and lunged at them, none of that is supported in the video recordings. More damning for me was what the officers told paramedics on the scene. While the officers had jolted Mr. Dziekanski five times with their Taser, they informed paramedics they had stunned the blue-faced, convulsive, breathless victim only once, a possible sign that even then they knew they had done something wrong and were preparing a common cover story.”

  And ever since, their RCMP superiors also falsely have been attempting to cover up their blameworthiness.  They tried to block a comprehensive video taken at the scene from being made public. They resisted an inquiry, whitewashed their own findings and, as we learned this week, kept 18,000 documents — some highly damaging — from being seen by the formal inquiry and from the public. These great  unacceptable transgressions — the attempts also  by the brass to keep the truth from coming out — is the basic managerial  problem now plaguing the  once-proud national police force. It confirms the massive institutional rot and corrosive culture at all of the  echelons of the RCMP.  An RCMP formal  apologize for its role in all this is not enough. All  Mounties who helped perpetrate a cover-up should be sacked.

Retired judge Thomas Braidwood in the first half of his findings following the inquiry into the taser death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski in Vancouver, British Columbia July 23, 2009. Braidwood said the police should restrict the use of taser stun guns. The inquiry was called after Dziekanski died from use of a taser used by Royal Canadian Mounted Police at Vancouver Airport in 2007.

This hearing also has been a good undeniable example of the unacceptable RCMP false denials, lies, slander, distortions, RCMP managerial incompetence now as well..

It TRULY has even a sad, debauching  spectacle in our Canadian public life watching the RCMP continually gouge themselves at the Braidwood inquiry into the Tasering death of Robert Dziekanski two years ago at Vancouver International airport? The RCMP a once, now past  proud institution, in the past one of the best known icons of Canada, Canada wide and  in the rest of the world now rightfully has taken it’s place in the waste, trash bins. The RCMP though  it still seems hell-bent on destroying its last shreds of any competence, truthfulness, integrity, professionalism and credibility. Why? The clear evidence already has shown us all, shows   that the RCMP knew days before video of Mr. Dziekanski’s killing became public that it had a serious, time bomb ticking in its hands. Instead of  dealing  with it in a professional, competent manner,  by even still now rightfully suspending the officers involved, and themselves instead conducting a thorough internal investigation, the incompetent RCMP Managers top brass  had  instead devised a false cover-up to mute or at least minimize the negative consequences. But that is what they have been doing all the long anyway. This was, is unacceptable. THEY ALL STILL NOW SHOULD BE DISMISSED FROM THE FORCE TOO. Even just as shameful is the way the force has continued to justify its officers’ behaviour and its own actions in papering over their offences. Instead of sweeping clean, even the new Commissioner William Elliott has quickly become the false RCMP’s apologist-in-chief. The Mounties can begin to restore their reputation only if they punish all those involved here and make them take their rightful dues. May this Force not be with you any longer. Now why it took anyone such a long time to expose, deal with all this police corruption in the first place is still a good question too.

Poland’s top civil-rights watchdog says a crucial e-mail dissected at the Braidwood inquiry this week suggests the death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski was “deliberate, intentional and planned in advance.”  The comment by Janusz Kochanowski, Poland’s commissioner for civil-rights protection, is included in a letter to be sent next week to Canada’s director of public prosecutions. Mr. Kochanowski is an independent officer appointed by the Polish government to monitor and uphold the civil rights of Polish citizens at home and abroad.

Chief Supt. Dick Bent told Assistant Commissioner Al McIntyre that Supt. Wayne Rideout told him the officers who used a Taser on Dziekanski discussed using the weapon on their way to the scene. That contradicted testimony the Mounties themselves gave earlier in the Braidwood inquiry looking into Dziekanski’s death two years ago.   “The three RCMP officials cited in the email will be called during the three days of hearings and are expected to tell the inquiry that the email was the result of a misunderstanding.” This is such garbage. Those idiot cops have done more to hurt the image of the RCMP with this incident than any group of corrupt police has done in the last decade. Looking the public RIGHT IN THE EYE and bald-faced LYING! As if we’re supposed to forgive them for this or something. What a farce. The reputation of the RCMP is falling fast if they ‘stand up for their own’ on this one. And now they will try to make everyone believe that the email was a “misunderstanding” of some sort? They’re not fooling anyone and won’t be anytime soon.  The only reason they’re not in jail is because they have badge. It’s ridiculous.If these four men aren’t charged with contempt of court at the very least, I will withdraw all support and pride in the RCMP I ever had. At this point, it’s next to nothing anyway. This whole thing, start to finish is disgusting, and a disgrace to Canada.
RCMP tests Tasers that record video. I wonder how many chips containing video data will get lost, or mislaid after these things are used? Sorry, but I am no longer willing to trust the RCMP.

Taser testimony gaps ‘beyond belief’: B.C. inquiry lawyer Vancouver Province September 24,  VANCOUVER — The four RCMP officers who Tasered and restrained Robert Dziekanski kept working together for weeks after the Polish immigrant died in their custody at the Vancouver International Airport. Yet the four officers previously told the inquiry probing his October 2007 death that they never had the opportunity to discuss the case, either at work, at a debriefing session or in phone calls or e-mails. But on its 61st and final day of hearings, the Braidwood inquiry into Dziekanski’s death heard Wednesday from RCMP Sgt. Doug Wright — the immediate supervisor of the four Mounties involved in the Tasering — that the four kept working together “for two or three weeks.” Then, Wright admitted, three of the four were sent on a training course together in Chilliwack, B.C. Outside the courtroom, Polish government lawyer Don Rosenbloom called Wright’s evidence “just beyond belief.” Walter Kosteckyj, lawyer for Dziekanski’s mother, Zofia Cisowski, agreed. “You’ve got four people that work together, they go through what is obviously a traumatic experience, and then they continue to work together for three weeks — and then three of them get sent to do a training course together. “What would common sense dictate? Of course they would discuss this incident.”

Judge disbelieves RCMP acquits defendant.  A B.C. judge has acquitted a man on a charge of aggravated assault, saying she did not believe testimony from the Mounties involved in his arrest. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Marvyn Koenigsberg says officers in Burns Lake, B.C., used excessive force in subduing Andrew Fidler following his arrest in October 2006 for assault, and breached his charter rights. In the written ruling earlier this month, Koenigsberg said disclosure of records from the RCMP was a “continuing problem” throughout the trial and she finally ordered the entire police file handed over to the court. “Throughout the trial … difficulties were encountered with disclosure of documentation from the Burns Lake detachment,” Koenigsberg noted in the Sept. 14 ruling. “Not only was there late disclosure, the disclosure was piecemeal and necessitated the court, in exasperation the last few days of the trial, to order the entire file of Mr. Fidler’s encounters with (RCMP)… to be brought to court.” Among the documents then discovered was an RCMP internal report that directly conflicted with what the arresting officers had told the court under oath regarding whether or not Fidler was ordered out of his home by the arresting Mounties. Koenigsberg noted that a security camera at the detachment was operating the night Fidler was brought in, but the surveillance video of the detachment and the cells was inexplicably erased. It’s not the first time Mounties have come under fire for their record-keeping and disclosure of information following controversial arrests. The public inquiry into the death of Robert Dziekanski will resume Tuesday to deal with the disclosure of internal emails that surfaced just as the inquiry was to wrap up. The correspondence raised questions about the testimony of the four officers involved in the incident about whether they discussed using a Taser as they headed to the airport to respond to the call. Critics have said questions about the Mounties’ testimony, and documents from before and after Dziekanski’s death, raise questions about whether the RCMP were truthful about what happened in Dziekanski’s death.  It is so sad and disappointing the degree to which the RCMP as an organization has squandered their inspirational heritage and squandered the public trust. Over 100 years brave, stellar professionals have morphed into a lying, deceitful, self-serving bureaucracy. The rot simply has to be removed from the force if Canadians are to have any form of faith in them again.  hahaha, the RCMP has got to be good fodder for comedy!  if we cannot trust the people paid to protect us to carry out their duties within the law, honestly, and with integrity (who can we trust )..

EDMONTON – A veteran Mountie serving in Edmonton’s major crime unit has been charged with seven criminal offences following a investigation into a family fight.  Cpl. Kelly Gulaga faces five counts of assault, one of forcible confinement and one firearms offence.  RCMP spokesman Cpl. Wayne Oakes says Gulaga, a 19-year Mountie veteran, has been suspended with pay pending the outcome of the case.  The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team says it began conducting the investigation in July.  ASIRT says Gulaga appeared in St. Albert provincial court on Monday and was released with conditions.  Gulaga is to appear in court again on Oct. 5 for election and plea.

OUR Civil society can not afford to discount any kind of bad police behavior.. time to convict the RCMP of all of their crimes, thus  make a good example of them rightfully too

VANCOUVER — Just a week before the two-year anniversary of her son’s death at Vancouver International Airport, Zofia Cisowski has filed a lawsuit for damages .  The lawsuit against the RCMP, the Canada Border Services Agency and the Vancouver Airport Authority seeks damages for psychological injury, the loss of her son, Robert Dziekanski, and her inability to work since the incident. The suit, filed in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver on Wednesday, also seeks punitive damages. Dziekanski, 40, died on Oct. 14, 2007, after being Tasered five times by four RCMP officers responding to a 911 call at the airport. Dziekanski, who was immigrating to Canada to live with his mother, had become frustrated after a 20-hour flight from Poland, then spending about 11 hours in the international arrivals area of the airport. He was unable to contact his mother, who was waiting for him in another area. Cisowski’s lawsuit, filed a week before the statute of limitations would go into effect, said the conduct of the RCMP and four officers breached the Charter of Rights and was “an abuse of power, reprehensible, malicious, oppressive and high-handed.” The suit claims negligence, assault and battery, malfeasance and charter violations by the RCMP.


RCMP shouldn’t investigate RCMP, says officer in charge of Dziekanski case Tue Sep 22, 7:47 PM  VANCOUVER, B.C. – The senior Mountie who was in charge of the investigation into Robert Dziekanski’s death says the national police force shouldn’t investigate itself…Supt. Wayne Rideout was in charge of criminal operations in the region and headed the investigation into Dziekanski’s death in October 2007, after four RCMP officers stunned him with a Taser at Vancouver’s airport.  he says bringing in an outside body would avoid the sort of public perception problems that have plagued the Dziekanski case.  Just last month, the RCMP’s federal watchdog also said the force shouldn’t investigate itself, although the RCMP has resisted turning over such cases to outside bodies.
On December 12, 2008, the Criminal Justice Branch of British Columbia issued a statement, finding that although the RCMP officers’ efforts to restrain Dziekański were a contributing cause of his death, the force they used to subdue and restrain him was reasonable and necessary in all the circumstances; thus there would not be a substantial likelihood of conviction of the officers in connection with the incident and accordingly criminal charges were not approved.[28] Three of the officers remain on duty elsewhere in Canada, while the supervisor, Corporal Benjamin “Monty” Robinson, resigned from the force on July 20, 2012 in anticipation of a sentencing hearing after being found guilty of obstruction of justice[29] stemming from the death of a 21-year old Vancouver man.[30][31][32]

Police, Others Pretentious, incompetent in real life.



 And the lying no good police Public Relationship spin doctors and their false supporters now  too will next try to deny it.  By the sheer numbers of bad guys who get away with it many of us seem to get the impression the Police have never faced or dealt with criminals before too.. or are they wasting their time elsewhere? Car Speeders are much easier to find, to see and to convict over the real criminals now! So the Police spend much of their resources here instead.  Majority of criminals firstly are never caught, convicted, fully incarcerated even because existing laws are not adequately enforced  still by the too often pretentious, incompetent police, RCMP included now.   
Vincent Lacroix pleads guilty to fraud.. The guilty plea surprised many watchers Monday morning, including hundreds of investors who fell victim to the fraud scam. “If Vincent Lacroix had to answer questions [on the stand] we would have gotten information, and we could have known where the money went,” said Jean-Guy Houle, who lost some of his life savings to Norbourg. Another Corporate CROOK has fallen … thousands to go.  6 months at a minimum security prison…….  Wanna bet? for 100 million… Hahahahahaha!!!!! This will be seen as “justice” by the Crown because Lacroix will have to fly back from his private yacht in the Caribbean and check in with his probation officer every few months. Poor guy! Pre-emptying the conservatives promise to get tough on white collar crime?  , “NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S COVER”… all nice and shiny on the outside, but rotten as hell on the inside.

MONTREAL – Vincent Lacroix, the former head of Norbourg Inc., has pleaded guilty to 200 fraud-related charges.  Lacroix entered the pleas in a Montreal courtroom this morning and was immediately ordered incarcerated.  Sentencing arguments will be heard Friday. Lacroix had been accused of defrauding 9,200 investors and illegally appropriating more than $100 million.

Thousands  and thousands of persons get  hurt, victimized now too.  The  maximum sentence for White collar crime fraud is  from 10 years to 14 years, not including parole, time served credit now too,  does not mean much if still most of the criminals do not get caught and convicted by the police in the first place.  Many people also undeniably now  blame the cops for the existence of the much too many crooked white collared crimes, business persons, and bad stockbrokers, bad civil and public servants  in reality  It is not just many  Quebecers but even also Calgary seniors who lost  in alleged Ponzi frauds

Coquitlam RCMP officer charged for drunk driving. A B.C. RCMP officer has been charged with impaired driving after being stopped by members of his own detachment on his way from the Boulevard Casino in Coquitlam early Friday morning. The officer was released from custody on a promise to appear in a Port Coquitlam court on Jan. 10, 2010. The name of the officer has not been released, but police did say he has been moved to administrative duties pending the completion of the criminal investigation and a parallel internal investigation. Drunk driving is beyond stupid… *Especially* when it’s a cop.  I just can’t understand why anyone would drive drunk. Especially a police officer.  What the hell is wrong with these people? Not good. Way too much of this going on. The RCMP and police forces in general are really losing respect and credibility. This stuff sure doesn’t help. at least they didn’t try cover it up…yet.

Being Pretentious and incompetent that is nothing now new BUT STILL  the sadly reality of many of our public and civil servants, cops, RCMP, political, regulating societies now included… and youoften  find out generally the hard way that truth when you are mow necessitated to try to use their services.. and not before. 



Diane Urquhart, a prominent investor advocate in Canada, said Thursday that Alberta and Quebec are the hot spots in the country for investor fraud. She said provincial securities commissions are ill-equipped to monitor and enforce illegal activity. “The securities commissions are not qualified to deter these Ponzi schemes,” said Urquhart, who was in Ottawa earlier this week urging the federal government to crack down on white-collar criminals.    “None of the security commissions in the country are effective,” she said. “Enforcement of securities laws and of the federal Criminal Code for securities is grossly deficient and has been for years.” Urquhart calling on the Alberta government to spend an additional $6 million to hire 20 new fraud police officers and help form an expert securities crime unit. “If we’re again going to have investor confidence in the regulatory process, it’s up to the government to ensure our rules are rigorously enforced,”   “If we’re willing to rigorously enforce our rules, the shady characters will move on.” Liberal finance critic Hugh MacDonald
Since clearly 2/3 of us do not respect cops, or the RCMP, governments, civil and public servants  in the first place.. they are all  so right too.
 The rich and middle class are (OFTEN) greedy, self serving, whining, and cheap. They want bargains, they want it free or they want someone to gift it to them. The lions share of them resent paying taxes, and god forbid they should pay their employees a living wage. ” Forget about your money ..Canada is very easy on the scammers especially those working in financial sectors. Just look at the banks, insurance companies, their fees are just like legalized loan sharks. Have U seen  if our Government does anything??” 

N.L. spending scandal nets another guilty plea .  Wally Andersen has pleaded guilty in Newfoundland and Labrador’s spending scandal,  Andersen pleaded guilty in a St. John’s court   to uttering forged documents and breach of trust by a public officer. The former Liberal MHA resigned his Torngat Mountains seat.  Reports filed by N.L. Auditor General John Noseworthy said Andersen received $344,465 more than he was entitled to through his constituency allowances. Former Tory cabinet minister Ed Byrne was sentenced to a jail term of two years less a day in April after he admitted to forging documents and faking signatures while stealing more than $117,000 through his tax-free constituency allowances.  Former New Democrat MHA Randy Collins also pleaded guilty to two fraud charges when he appeared in court last week. He’ll be sentenced in December.  There doesn’t seen to be any ethical requirement to become an elected representative. Politicians – right up there with used car salesmen.  Just another corrupt Politician , federal or provincial they are all the same. Amazing…all three parties found guilty of fraud. Makes you wonder who exactly you are supposed to vote for. When caught being corrupt—do we get to take their pensions away? And if not ,why not? As the courts will, as usual, hand out a slap on the wrist punishment–taking the pension would at least hurt a bit. As well as send a message. 
 Mayor cancels Montreal’s $355M water meter contract. Tremblay said Tuesday two of the city’s top bureaucrats — city manager Claude Léger and the city’s director of corporate affairs, Robert Cassius de Linval — have been fired. The move comes after the city’s auditor general recommended the city review — and consider cancelling — its contract with private consortium GÉNIeau because of irregularities with the tendering process  What about the $11 million that was paid to these guys for city repairs? Let’s just agree the whole system is bloody corrupt, eh? It seems Newfoundland politicians are pleading guilty to fast and loose spending, Ontario’s e-health looked outrageous, Ottawa’s mayer did a backroom deal… The repairs were never done, but the money was still paid. Maybe that explains the yacht in the Caribbean…  Criminals – the whole lot of them.  These type of stories always make me wonder – how many other dubious contracts are signed wasting our tax dollars?  Until people start getting fired and criminal charges are laid, these type of under the table deals will continue.  And we wonder why services continue to go down as taxes continue to go up. I say amend the criminal code to include a mandatory 5 year minimum jail sentence and a fine not less than 10 times the money involved, for breach of public trust. This amendment would cover all forms of corruption from conflict of interest to false accounting. By the time the first dozen or so of these crooks have been banged up – the rest won’t find public office so attractive once they know they can’t fleece the taxpayer. Calgary isn’t exactly squeaky clean as well nor Toronto.. “Zampino admitted he vacationed on Accurso’s yacht in the Caribbean during the tender process for the contract.” You’re not allowed to even speak to respondents to a bid outside of the allotted presentation/Q&A time never mind have a romance on the guys yacht in the Caribbean. This is no different than E-health. Bring this clown out of retirement and fire him and then send him to jail. Crooked politicians are crooked politicians not matter which province they come from.

According to a new Nanos Research poll, which as stated before I do not trust, The poll was conducted by Nanos Research. Results are based on a national random telephone survey of 1,003 adult Canadians, between August 28 and September 2, 2009 Please tell me how you would rate the honesty and ethics of people in the following professions. Would you rate their honesty and ethics as  Total Very high High Average Low Very low Unsure
– Canadians rate physicians and pharmacists highest among 18 professions, when it comes to honesty and ethics.
Seventy-seven per cent of respondents call medical doctors’ standards of honesty and ethics “high” or “very high”, while the figure was 73 per cent for community pharmacists. While I trust them I always still get a SECOND OPINION TO BE ON THE RIGHT, SAFE SIDE. My Canadian Experience has taught me that gray haired doctors are more component firstly, built even gray haired doctors can be charge car happy and prescribe useless medical test too now.  And Pharmacists are here to make as much  money as they can  and some wrongfully push the more profitable, higher money making drugs.. in fact one product recommend to me by a Pharmacist at 9.99 $ sold for  1$ elsewhere.– Also among the   professions whose honesty and ethics were rated as “high” or “very high”, were high school teachers at 66 per cent, and police officers at 58 per cent.  40 percent of persons do not trust cops? My opinion of cops went much lower when I myself had actually tried to use their services in reality. Many people also undeniably now  blame the cops for the existence of the much too many crooked white collared crimes, business persons, and bad stockbrokers, bad civil and public servants  in reality

– and clergy at the   50 per cent. What 50 percent of persons do not trust the clergy? OR  Funeral directors or accountants


 – Majority of persons do not trust : Journalists,  Labour union leaders ,  Provincial government officials,   Building contractors ,  Lawyers ,  Bankers ,  Real estate agents,   MPP’s/MLA’s ,  Car salespeople ,  Business executives , Stockbrokers.  Politicians known to be as bad as the used car  salesmen


And with all the latest recession, Ponzi scandals it is not surprising that the Business executives and  Stockbrokers are not trustworthy .

And most PEOPLE STILL DO THINK THAT ALL CEOs ARE SIGNIFICANTLY OVERPAID.. and even the University administrators

Now we should note how many Canadians hate the big three, Bell Corporations , Rogers, Telus for a start as well.

Remembering Brian Mulroney’s Progressive Conservative party


So Remembering Brian Mulroney’s 1984 landslide election victory, his legacy, 25 years later
And it was the ongoing  Canadian opposition to the unacceptably bad  Mulroney Progressive Conservative government, both in the east and in the west too, that next spawned two major political parties that were to dominate next the political landscape for decades: the Reform Party and the Bloc Quebecois, both basically still a real  force to be reckoned with on the federal scene and all helped to kill the federal PC party too. The Liberal party was able to capitalize on the clearly evident  Mulroney dissatifactions for 13 years and the much hated GST introduced by him, the General Sales Tax, until also next the PCs and Canadian Alliance (the old Reform party) managed to unite to form the New Conservatives under Stephen Harper with lead to only a minority Harper government still.. all that  happened, ironically, with the help of Brian Mulroney poor management.. poor legacy, so what is there now for Brian Mulroney to celebrate in reality? Nothing! and who can deny the legacy of his that because of the loser Brian Mulroney and his party’s arrogance arrogance, stupidity, indifference,  uncaring attitudes as well this same federal Conservative political party ceased to exist even in name after that… and Brian Mulroney in reality NEXT  became one of the most disliked Prime Minister of Canada, even in his own province of Quebec.. yeah what glory day’s they now where.. A ONCE SOLID political party all dissolved into non existence… and who would want this part of history repeated, in reality many Canadians still today, 2/3, to have the federal Conservative Party wiped off the pages of History again and again.. It was one of the biggest DISAPPEARING ACT  in Canadian history.
It was, is Brian Muloney’s oppostion that next propped up the Stephen Harper new bad Conservative government still today ironically. Now we also do need the new Conservative party of Stephen Harper’s wiped of the face of the earth rightfully as well.
(Eccl 7:8 KJV)  Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
And who can forget that recently a federal parliamentary committee asked  Karlheinz Schreiber, a German-Canadian businessman to testify in an ethics probe of his dealings with Mulroney.  Where the same Mulroney has told the public inquiry he secretly took $225,000 cash to lobby internationally on behalf of a Schreiber-promoted plan to build light-armoured vehicles in Canada. Schreiber says he paid Mulroney $300,000 to lobby domestically on behalf of the German-sponsored project.. Mulroney next had  told the federal inquiry there was nothing “sinister” about him secretly accepting the cash-stuffed envelopes from Schreiber at dufferent  hotels in the 16 months after he stepped down as prime minister in the summer of 1993 and next also failing to report this income to the income tax deparment as needed too. What else did he Mulroney also do in secret we do not fully know?
Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney had responded  to the many allegations that he was a bad PM , he always fought the serious accusations that have been made against him, was  innocent, confident of full exoneration,  he strived to clear his name but not every one believed him.
BRIAN’S LEGACY ALSO TEND TO REMIND US HOW PRETENTIOUS, INCOMPETENT THE RCMP and the government too  WAS, IS IN DEALING WITH REAL CRIMES NOW TOO.. RCMP’s false favourite excuses for their much too many incompetencies are: they are under paid, over worked, short staffed, poorly managed or someone else  are just more big coverups..

 To Dominique La Salle Director General Seniors and Pensions Policy Secretariat Income Security and Social Development Branch 
You are a clearly still a very pretentious person and also a fool  when you suggest me now to do now  things that I have already done  and everyone knows  it too!
Now my father    a senior was undeniably abused now.. and what did you, the police, the justice ministers, the PM do about it? nothing really still..

Now what about me rather being able to get a real justice, and an adequate response still here firstly too?

Or do I first have to give a bribe to the Conservative Party? and also post it all on the internet first for all to read?
and how do you expect most of the police officers now to act firstly when police management still Canada wide, RCMP included now, tend to prefer to clearly  hire the bad guys, bullies, ignoramuses  for cops and tend not to hire   the more decent, moral, intelligent persons. The RCMP itself has become Canada’s biggest choke.

Subject: The Shotgun: For the last time, Harper is not a social conservative
Prime Minister Stephen Harper basically still is just another lieberal opportunist who often still lets his power hungry  ethics slide down and  also the Harper Conservatives hate women by not paying them equal salary to the men still too.
 When Stephen Harper’s Conservatives came to power in 2006, they took to calling themselves Canada’s better New Government, claiming  to signal  a break from the discredited Liberal way of running the country. Now accountability, openness and ethics would prevail in government. HA HA HA, and  that did not last long.
Now Harper Conservatives government has been stone walling  the  security documents from the eyes of Parliament, and citizens, stone walling the auditor general’s request to audit MP’s expenses and falsely refusing to allow ministers’ aides to testify before committees. We even have Tony Clement, the Industry Minister, flogging products to China on behalf of a private company over needs of the citizens who elected him? Looked at the phone, internet, gas price gouging prices lately?  Mr. Clement  he dos not have a clear political interest in being seen to help any constituent or the citizens? 
Under Harper  the RCMP is just as bad as under the Lieberals too
“The longer they remain in power, the more the Conservatives have let their moral standards slide. Favoured treatment for friends of the party. Seats in the Senate for big donors. An easy ride for cabinet members who are favoured by the Prime Minister” for they are not  any different from the Liberals they replaced! Read more:
Harper’s staff, civil and public servants do not reply to the citizens letters any better over the lieberals too



Now what about me rather being able to get a real competent doctor, and valid medicine that works still here firstly too? Or do I first have to give a bribe to the Liberal party? and also post it all on the internet first for all to read?

One of Harper’s boys in trouble


jaffer001Stop the Press

Former Edmonton-Strathcona MP Rahim Jaffer responded now to allegations he was driving drunk and carrying cocaine when Ontario police arrested him last weekend. “I intend to fight the serious accusations that have been made against me”, “I am innocent and am confident of full exoneration… I strive to clear my name.” 

Tory MP who led anti-drug campaign charged with cocaine possession  OTTAWA – The former chairman of the Conservative caucus who was featured in anti-drug campaign ads is facing charges of cocaine possession and drunk driving. Prime Minister Stephen Harper named Jaffer chairman of the Conservative caucus shortly after the 2006 general election. Jaffer, 37, was MP for the riding of Edmonton-Strathcona from 1997 until a surprise defeat in last year’s election to the NDP’s Linda Duncan. Jaffer recently worked for Green Power Generation Corporation, which helps bring alternative energy technologies to market.“The Conservative party supports drug-free schools and getting tough on drug dealers who sell illegal drugs to children. Don’t let our schools go up in smoke.” Perverse Rahim Jaffer, OTTAWA — Former Edmonton Conservative MP Rahim Jaffer is facing charges of drunk driving and cocaine possession. Jaffer, husband of Tory MP Helena Geurgis, was arrested just after midnight last Thursday night by Ontario Provincial Police in Palgrave, north of Toronto. He has been charged with driving while over the legal blood-alcohol limit, and with possession of cocaine. His licence has been suspended for 90 days and he is to appear in court in Orangeville, Ont., on Oct. 19.

A fine representative of the conservatives.. conservative = hypocrite, Rahim Jaffer = LOSER.. Good thing he no longer representing his riding anymore!   I’ve often believed that my fellow Albertans would vote for almost anyone, regardless of all factors, as long as they were running as a conservative. Tough on Crime…… except when we do it. The Conservative Party of Harper.. Now we know what type of people can be involved with certain parties…… When Conservatives say “Tough on Crime” they mean “For Other People. Par for the course: exemplary Conservative morals. It’s the hypocricy that grates on me. A former member and cabinet minister, now employee, of a government that wants to make criminals of many of us, and spend our money building jails — even as they break their own laws … Yeah, and you can gaurantee this behavior only occured AFTER his time on parliament hill…  What about mandatory random drug tests for MPs? Truckers are subjected to them. Or better yet, let the truckers run the country, at least we know they aren’t high… this event is yet another illustration of the moral hypocrisy of the Reformatories, of which Mr. Jaffer was once considered a leading light. In the morning he will be assigned to the senate! The Conservatives want to get tough on crime. I advocate mandatory drug testing for every so-called “public servant.” I am not surprised, there was someone on here the other day that posted a list of offences that members of Parliament had been convicted of, or had gone through (bankruptcies, wife beating, etc.),  Here’s there chance.  Drinking and drivng and speeding and found with cocaine by police sounds pretty solid to me. “Something is strange. He was pulled over last Thursday night/Friday morning. This incident has been made public today. What was happening in the meantime. His wife who is a conservative MP was negotiating with the police through Harper? And it didn’t work?  Harper’s favourite attack dog in previous parliaments accused of two serious crimes–are riveting. How will the Harper hypocrites slither out of this one? (Lotsa spin and a passive press corps, I’m guessing.) does he get a mandatory prison time as the cons like to talk about all the time. I think not.  Will Stephen Harper backtrack on his “tough on crime” policies now, then?He was one of Harper’s finest. No special privileges for Rahim. He broke the law, now he must take responsibility for his actions. Sort of brings a smile to my face to read about this pompous …. Is this not the same person that embellished his educational background a few years back? I hope that they throw the book at you! How dumb can you get? I hope they throw the book at this hypocrite!  typical conservative hypocrite crook…. no surprise…. So can we expect the “Law and Order” crowd who are always demanding to get tough on crime to be out front demanding a stiff sentance for Rahim IF he is convicted?   Conservatives are tough on crime. They demand criminals to do time! Please show us the justice by your example!
Hey I have already many times written that Alcohol is also a big part of many a Conservative politicians life, and I  wanted to know how many of them now were alcoholics too..
Meanwhile in  VANCOUVER — A $5 million legal bill for defending a religious order against charges of sexual abuse has landed a B.C. senator in hot water. Sen. Mobina Jaffer, a Liberal appointment to Canada’s upper chamber, must undergo a conduct review, the Law Society of B.C. announced Tuesday. The Order of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate sued Jaffer, her son Azool Jaffer-Jeraj and their firm, accusing them of overbilling the order for legal work done from 2000 to 2004. The lawsuit was settled before it went to trial.  Now the case will proceed to a conduct review. “Undergoing a conduct review is a serious matter for any lawyer,” said Stuart Cameron, the society’s director of discipline.  
Ms. Mobina Jaffer was appointed as a Senator to represent British Columbia in June of 2001.  Having been born in Uganda, and trained in law in Britain she had a  career as a lawyer and was active on many legal and charitable foundations, as well as being involved in local politics.  She was the first Muslim ever appointed to the Senate and the first African-born as well. Ms. Jaffer is the deputy chair of the Senate Committee for Human Rights and also sits on the Committees for Official Languages, Internal Economy, Budgets and Administration and the joint committee for the Library of Parliament.
Anyone checked her Senate expense accounts yet too? You all also already know I  have very little respect for the lawyers too…
Feds Under Stephen Harper’s conservatives had spent thousands on golf balls, candy, toys  OTTAWA – They spent thousands of dollars last year on golf balls, candy, flowers, tickets to gala events and coupons for Tim Hortons. And you paid for it. Documents tabled in the House of Commons this week reveal that while Canadians were tightening their belt and bracing for the recession, many civil servants were continuing to spend thousands of dollars of taxpayers money on frills and small perks of the job. Moreover, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. 
and I rightfully oppose the fact there are too many crooked public and civil servants still in Canada as well..
I can see why even the Liberal Iggy does not want to discuss it, it puts all the MPs, Senators  in a bad light.. but the citizens readily talk about it..
I too do  find it rightfully interesting that m any a bad civil and public servants, including cops , RCMP too, politicians, lawyers now too,  their  sins, or hypocritical acts are often  been revealed, exposed to all in Canada, and  Canada wide as well.. My dad calls them all parasites.
“When I raise the subject of politics with my grandfather, it usually comes down to the statement, “They’re all crooks!” I used to have faith in our politicians to put the interests of Canadians first, but I’ve become less idealistic. It seems to me the time for greatness in Canadian politics has come and gone.”

Abolish the Senate and get rid of the Conservatives, crooks..

Transport Canada, others stealing taxpayer’s money

Former Quebec lieutenant-governor Lise Thibault will face six criminal charges in connection with her expense accounts. Not surprised at all… they should audit every single expense claim by people in such positions. Most civil and public servants do it but some do it on a larger scale.
The Federal public servants at Transport Canada are routinely filing millions of dollars in expenses – including overtime, salaries and computers – toward a construction project that doesn’t exist. The Mackenzie Valley pipeline remains a mega-project that is perpetually on the horizon –The project seemed closer at hand when a fund was set up at Transport Canada six years ago so that the department could oversee the expected increase in air traffic and other transportation needs. Though the pipeline remains in limbo, the department has kept the fund alive year after year, using it to cover millions in expenses that have nothing to do with the pipeline. Documents released through access-to-information requests list the expenses, which total $10.7-million since 2004. Expenses continued to be billed to the pipeline project this year. ” So, when you consider that Chuck Guite (Sr. Public servant) and Paul Coffin (ad exec) started running their fake ad invoice scam during the Mulroney administration, it appears that the Liberals inherited AdScam from the Conservatives, does it not?  ”  “This is why our taxes are so high. Take this and the Gold that vanished at the Mint and the tab is through the roof. Anyone want to bet the Mint millions gets swept under the carpet?” ”   Too much time spent electioneering and not enough time spent runnin’ things. ” 
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.
There’s something deeply ironic about all of this, and previous federal governments; they know that the cities, provinces that suppossedly drive the economy  they know they also do steal a lot of the money too..   Premier’s Letter To The Ontario Public Service
No such thing as a little bit pregnant, what other wrongs, thefts  are the civil and public servants doing and falsely covering up now? And now still all this being done while most Canadians now do live from paycheque to paycheque.  Majority of Canadian employees living paycheque to paycheque, survey shows
Is this how the rest of the federal economic stimulation  money will be now abused as well? Right under the federal Conservative Minister’s noses now as well?
The Conservative federal government is an unacceptably very poor manager of the taxpayer’s money now as well. The Federal Transfer payments make up a very large part of federal expenditures. The federal government is a  tax collector,  money expediter and an useless money administrator too, while the federal government’s own regular operating expenses for fiscal 2009-2010 will be only about a quarter of its total spending all the taxpayer’s money expenditures still needs to be supervised, yes held accountable for now as well.
Flaherty had said the government would clean up its books by restraining the growth in federal program spending over several years. That spending, now $241 billion a year, has been growing on average at a rapid 7 per cent annual rate since Harper took office. We can see why too.. the liars also all keep on allowing the taxpayer’s money to be stolen..
The Conservative federal Government expenditures since Harper came into office, his government expenditures have ballooned by over 30 per cent. They rather had increased spending by three times the rate of inflation in the three budgets before the recession hit, and now spend $40 billion more annually than the last Liberal government.   Consultants. Harper government spent nearly a billion dollars on consultants in its first two years in office: a 42-per-cent increase over the amount the previous Liberal government spent between 2004 and 2006 on consultants (Toronto Star, December 8, 2008). Ministerial expenses. Despite promising to tighten their belts, a Toronto Star analysis found that Conservative ministers are spending more than Liberals ever did in government (The Toronto Star, November 22, 2008), while Harper’s expansion of the federal cabinet last fall will cost taxpayers an additional $3.9 million in salaries alone for the extra ministers and their staff.  Polling. In 2007, the Harper government commissioned more than two polls per business day which totalled $31 million in the government’s first year of government.  Prime Minister’s Office. Last week it was revealed that spending in Prime Minister Harper’s own office soared by 14 per cent in a single year – the tune of a whopping $20 million. (Canwest News Service, September 4, 2009).
Where is PM Stephen Harper’s promised restraint, accountability now as well?
Conservative Ministers merely  like to do all the talking but seem to bring no real, viable acts, actions  on the issues still too. Unacceptable.  
And why is it that their only solution to any problem in Canada seems to involve a tax increase? Because sadly that even the Conservatives undeniably too  really are not better economic managers over the past Liberals..
The essential needed way to save our taxpayer’s money is still to look at how all of these public services are delivered – and no one  can  tell me that there are no cost-cutting savings to be achieved. Compare  say a city like Montreal or Toronto where exorbitant rates too now are also paid  for useless civil and public servants with their rather unskilled services – sadly this same phenomena can be seen in many federal ministries. 
For a start all Ministers supervising better all of their expenditures, and bringing all of the subordinates  salaries and wages in line with the private sector would enable us firstly  to continue delivering public services at the same level, or more! It is the still the too often abusive civil and public servants spending that now also determines the still abusive personal taxes.
The sad unacceptable fact is that this type of taxpayer’s money abuse, practice is not an isolated case, but rather repeats itself often,  Canada wide at the federal, provincial, municipal levels undeniably too.. Money allotted is not used where it was originally supposed to be but often is transferred to some other department, account.. and how is it the auditor generals did  not pick it up for 10 years too? or refuse too?
Any Abuse of any taxpayers finds should be a criminal offence fully prosecutable by law, and should mean the immediate dismissal of all involved too, after all it is stealing the taxpayer’s money. Police, judges, supervisors  don’t tend to enforce it cause they do the same thing? All Unacceptable  still
We need better Policing and “Tougher penalties for sure!” You will get a longer jail sentence for robbing a convenience store of $50 than fleecing investors for millions (billions) or stealing any of the tax payer’s money.   “Also, put an end to double credit for pre-sentence incarceration!!” Put all of the criminals in jail, and their bad supervisors now too,  where they belong, and always do  take way from them all that they have stolen now as well.. and do start with the bad  civil and public servants now as well.

Feds promise mandatory jail time for major fraud. Judges could consider restitution for victims as part of white-collar crime bill

I’ve always found it funny that someone could steal a $2000 car and be sentenced to 20 years in jail. But steal 30 Million and you only do 18 months…. at Club Med. Excellent. There’s plenty of crime on Parliament Hill. Start your crackdown there. Are the politicians going to turn on their masters in Corporate Canada? How long will it take Harper to IGNORE this Law?.. Start with Mulroney. That would be a fine example to lead the charge with. There’s not a word in the legislation about obscene bonuses. Those will remain legal. Lock up all the CEOs! (Start with Bell…) Start with the telecommunication providers, and the banks. That’s great,  as long as the crackdown starts on parliament hill. Rob a thousand people of $100,000 each, that’s a crime. Rob a million people of $100 each by credit card interest rates that’s OK, that’s business. We should have election threats every months, it seems it’s the only way anything happens on the hill. Threaten an election and suddenly the legislative agenda is crammed with draft laws that should have been there months ago.  Harper – just another Calgarian running another Ponzi scheme… promising big returns but producing nothing of value.

   The government “moving ahead, with more taxes” is not  the most important thing that the province can do to strengthen the economy and create jobs but rather to seriously plug up the leaking  holes in the taxpayer’s pail of money first.



Ontario has announced new measures aimed at putting an end to recent controversies over government expense claims “The move is one of “four additional steps to protect taxpayer dollars and improve accountability,” Starting immediately, Ontario Public Service employees will be issued new, simplified guidelines for travel, meals and hospitality expenses. The province said it is also planning to increase the number of random audits it carries out on the province’s agencies, boards and commissions.  and  about time now too!
Quebec says it is intensifying police efforts to tackle corruption and financial fraud in the province amid a growing public furor over white-collar crime. The Charest government says a squad of about 20 provincial police investigators will be assigned to probe potential corruption – including the infiltration of organized crime – in the construction industry and municipal affairs. It will also bolster its police presence to track fraud with Quebec’s securities regulator, the Autorité des marchés financiers.  Meanwhile, with Montrealers going to the polls this fall, city hall is under a cloud for allegations of fraud, kickbacks and the inappropriate awarding of contracts. Multiple police investigations have been launched. Last week, a senior civil servant and a computer consultant were charged with defrauding the city of millions in a bogus billing scheme in the city’s computer division. While Quebec rejigs its police manpower, some have called for a public commission into the province’s construction industry and possible ties to organized crime.
Quebec “coming after” white collar criminals.. I hope they catch Chretien and Martin…   I hope the measures will also include effective tools to get the embezzled money back….  People like Vincent Lacroix and Earl Jones should also spend the rest of their lives making restitution to the people they stole from.
and  why did it take so long to deal with white collared  crimes that have been clearly ongoing even in Quebec too now for decades, not just in all of Canada. Why? The Police  Commercial Crime divisions cops, RCMP included applauded the criminals.. cause they do the same thing?
  Meanwhile Thousands of shipping containers enter Canada by rail each year without proper checks for illegal drugs and other contraband, says a new report. I don’t think that drugs is the only thing we have to worry about. Also What ought to be of far greater concern for all Canadians is the entry of illegal weapons into Canada. Perhaps the money wasted on arming our border guards could have been better spent trying to prevent these weapons from getting onto the streets of our cities..  it amazes me as to how much attention is given to taxpayers in arrears,and almost none given to canadian security.why are we paying these elected bufoons so much money,and allowing them huge pensions after so little time in office?expense accounts,vehicles,perks,and they cant even manage a railyard?theres better security at a rock concert! i wish they would work as hard for those of us who voted them in,as they do trying to get re-elected,,it makes ya wonder who the idiots are us or the politicians we voted form,what a mess. Regular citizens are getting worked over like never before and always without a smile! “Never worry, never fear” etc etc.  Not to mention the really top-notch work done by all Harper’s tough-on-crime policies and accountability… [this was a sarcastic comment for those who missed it]
Ontario Premier McGuinty announced that expenses for cabinet ministers, political aides, top mandarins, and all senior executives at Ontario’s 22 largest agencies will be posted on the Internet as of next April 1. “We’re going to shine a light on all expenses so Ontarians will know who, exactly, is spending what, exactly,” the premier told reporters. The premier is girding for an onslaught of opposition attacks stemming from controversy over expenses and perks at the OLG and eHealth Ontario. NDP Leader Andrea Horwath said voters are tired of an “arrogant” government that seems to make things harder on taxpayers and easier for insiders. The waste of precious tax dollars on these scandals is unacceptable .. people are telling me they are fed up with a government not able to focus on putting the dollars where they belong,” “the Liberals’ “culture of entitlement.”

TORONTO — Ontario’s health bureaucracy is facing yet another scandal in the wake of more revelations of spending and procurement abuses. In a special report released Wednesday morning, Auditor-General Jim McCarter outlines numerous problems at hospitals and local health integration networks (LHINs), regional funding agencies created by the Liberal government. McCarter points to the questionable hiring of pricey consultants, many of which were sole-sourced and often not required to justify the work they did. The report details a litany of questionable consulting gigs at hospitals, including one, worth $700,000, that was so vague it didn’t even list a detailed description of services needed. Another hospital completely failed to account for a $170,000 consultant contract, and was unable to produce the initial request for proposal, the names and number of firms invited to bid, the bidders’ proposals or any evaluation criteria used to reward the contract. The same firm was retained for another, $430,000 contract. Another hospital paid $8.3 million to one consulting firm for IT services over the past three fiscal years, including $180,000 the firm charges for each consultant it provides. The auditor’s report also details questionable expense claims by hospital consultants. They include one temporary executive who, despite his $275,000 annual salary, also billed the hospital nearly $150,000 for other consultants and administrative support, $14,000 for salary bonuses, foreign exchange fees and a Christmas luncheon, and numerous expensive hotels (including one, in Chicago, where he paid $500 for hotel phone charges) and lavish meals around the world. McCarter also questioned the use of lobbyists by half the 16 hospitals he audited.   “We questioned the appropriateness of using government funds to pay lobbyists to help obtain more government funding.”Health minister Deb Matthews reacted swiftly to the report, announcing legislation that will ban the use of lobbyists and open hospitals to freedom of information legislation by January 1, 2012.  The auditor-general also found “significant” problems with consultant contracts signed by LHINs The revelations contained in Wednesday’s report are reminiscent of those unearthed last December, when Mr. McCarter detailed spending abuses at eHealth Ontario. That agency, created by the Liberal government, was found to have given millions in sole-sourced contracts to high-priced consultants with few controls and little oversight.“I’m not afraid to say that I’m really sorry this has gone on,” said Matthews. “I don’t think this is acceptable. I don’t think we’ve been as accountable as we ought to have been. We owe it to taxpayers to ensure that every dollar they spend on taxes gets the best possible value.”

The same bad Liberals never learned to do things right and honestly the first time even.. allow their consultant sins to go on falsely.

 Feds Under Stephen Harper’s conservatives had spent thousands on golf balls, candy, toys  OTTAWA – They spent thousands of dollars last year on golf balls, candy, flowers, tickets to gala events and coupons for Tim Hortons. And you paid for it. Documents tabled in the House of Commons this week reveal that while Canadians were tightening their belt and bracing for the recession, many civil servants were continuing to spend thousands of dollars of taxpayers money on frills and small perks of the job. Moreover, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  


Former Quebec lieutenant-governor Lise Thibault will face six criminal charges in connection with her expense accounts. Not surprised at all… they should audit every single expense claim by people in such positions. Most civil and public servants do it but some do it on a larger scale. TYPICAL!! Politicians all think they have a right to the taxpayers money!!! Criminals is what they are.!!! Throw the book at this BI@#$!!! and put her in jail.The law should provide for double criminal penalties for anyone in elected office and quadruple criminal penalties for anyone in appointed office. To that, of course, seizure of assets to compensate not only the malfeasance, but offset the cost of prosecution and incarceration.

Let me talk about the fact so many cops too now are alcoholics or drug users, ( likley about 50 percent) and all alcoholics do now need to be fired.. dismissed from their jobs immediately too. Alcoholism is not a disease, it is a sin, that often leads to job incompetence, serious crimminal acts, murder, killings..

Well I do not need ANYONE’S permission to talk about it openly too.  Noboody has to help them.. they all rightfully should be fired.. so they can next learn to help themselves.. for firstly you cannot help a person , a clear ALCOHOLIC sinner too, who refuses to admit he OR SHE needs help or even has a problem, helping him it is a waste of time and resources ..

 do rather see also my many posts on how to deal with control freaks.. abusers.. for example or

VANCOUVER – The B.C. Civil Liberties Association and the union representing airport workers will have standing at a B.C. public inquiry into the death of a man hit by a Taser at Vancouver’s airport.  Inquiry commissioner Thomas Braidwood has also approved the participation of Robert Dziekanski’s mother at the inquiry slated to begin next month.  In a ruling released Tuesday, Braidwood says Zofia Cisowski clearly has an interest in the findings of the commission and granted her lawyer the status to call witnesses and ask questions.  The Vancouver Airport Authority, the Polish government, weapon manufacturer Taser International and Richmond’s fire and rescue department, whose members tried to revive Dziekanski after his collapse last October, will also appear.  It’s unclear if the RCMP will participate in the inquiry. Patrick McGowan, counsel for the commission, said the force was granted an extension to apply and may do so by Friday.  Walter Kosteckyj, who represents Cisowski, said he’s surprised neither the RCMP or Canadian Border Services have indicated their intention to participate in the inquiry.  “I’m presuming it’s their attempt to avoid dealing with the issue,” he said.  “Any government agency involved in this seems to be trying to avoid full participation.”  In August, a report said the Mounties did not get enough input from medical experts about the impact stun guns have on people.  The report, ordered by RCMP Commissioner Bill Elliott, said the Mounties relied too much on advice from Taser’s U.S. manufacturer before approving the device as a less-than-lethal weapon for its officers.  Murray Mollard, executive director of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, said his group aims to make sure all the facts – including those related to RCMP policies preceding the incident – are understood.  “Ultimately this is about another death in custody,” Mollard said.  “We have on average almost 18 deaths in custody each year in B.C. alone, and it’s going to be important to have an understanding about how the RCMP responds to these incidents.”  Braidwood’s report to the B.C. government related an earlier phase of his inquiry, into the general use of conducted energy weapons by police, is expected in November, McGowan said.  The six weeks of hearings related to Dziekanski’s death begin Oct. 20.  That inquiry is expected to look at events leading up to Dziekanski’s trip from Poland to Vancouver, up to and including his death after being shocked by an RCMP Taser.  Dziekanski’s death on Oct. 14, 2007, was caught on video by a passerby, shocking Canadians and raising questions about the use of Tasers.

RCMP may not participate in inquiry into Taser death of Polish man ?  The RCMP  leeches  FALSELY STILL DO pick and chose AS TO WHAT real justice THEY WILL SERVE STILL? THIS IS REALLY UNACCEPTABLE. Disband THE RCMP IMMEDIATELY.

And I’m saying to Canadians I’d place my trust in either Jack Layton or Stephane Dion before I’d place it in Stephen Harper.”
“And Stephen Harper -how many lawsuits is he currently embroiled in; I’ve lost count? ”

One of Rae’s best lines compared Conservative leader Stephen Harper to one-time FBI boss Herbert Hoover known for his intolerance and vindictiveness. 
Control freaks are nothing new in the prime minister’s chair. The two previous Liberal prime ministers — Jean Chretien and Paul Martin — weren’t known for their cooperative approach to governing.  But Harper takes it to another level, which makes questions about the people behind him particularly relevant.”
