The Liberal Control Freaks

control-freak-1

 

Fake news is a type of yellow journalism or propaganda that consists of deliberate disinformation or hoaxes spread via traditional print and broadcast news media or online social media. The Lying Press, distorted, false information is misinformation in social media, band the mainstream Liberal media as well.

Fake news is written and published usually with the intent to mislead in order to damage an agency, entity, or person, and/or gain financially or politically, often using sensationalist, dishonest, or outright fabricated headlines to increase Liberal support, readership, online sharing, and revenue. Intentionally misleading and deceptive fake news is immoral as it mislead its audience.

Canada is condemning Russia’s seizure of three Ukrainian naval vessels near Crimea, but many are also divided on what this escalation of the  conflict will mean.

The Trump-Russia False, negative Liberal news Media explained.

It should be obvious to any news reader there is the truth and the big lies among the news media firms. It is not by any coincidence that the same news media that falsely, clearly hates Trump tends to hate Putin, and one of the reasons is they cannot force them to do what they want done. Trump and Putin are uncontrollable. So the Liberals are continuing “ to lie” to implicate Trump and Putin and clearly show to all what they really are like, “Liars”, “Oppressors”. “The Phony Witch Hunt continues”. “Their stories are totally false and deliberately libelous,” and so we shouldn’t take their words for much of anything.

US President Trump’s “lethal force” authorization at the border could escalate the conflict against migrants at the southern border even more. White House Chief of Staff John Kelly issued a memo expanding the military’s authority to include protecting border agents — even if that means using deadly force. A recent memo states that troops may “perform those military protective activities that the Secretary of Defense determines are reasonably necessary,” if there is “credible evidence and intelligence,” including “a show or use of force (including lethal force, where necessary), crowd control, temporary detention, and cursory search.” Trump has the power to authorize the military to act as law enforcement at the border in case of a violent uprising, under the Insurrection Act, which allows the president to activate the military to act like law enforcement in the case of “insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy.” There is a national security threat and full-blown crisis at the southern border.

The Guardian published a stunning report alleging that Manafort had secretly met WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange during the 2016 campaign. But the story been vigorously disputed by WikiLeaks and Manafort, and has not yet been confirmed by any other news outlet. It’s best to treat it with caution for now. it has long been known that Manafort traveled to Ecuador in May 2017 to meet with the incoming president-elect Lenin Moreno. On Tuesday, however, CNN reported that Mueller has been investigating whether WikiLeaks or Assange came up at that meeting — The Phony Witch Hunt continues, but Mueller and his gang of Angry Dems are only looking at one side, not the other. Wait until it comes out how horribly & viciously they are treating people, ruining lives for them refusing to lie. Mueller is a conflicted prosecutor gone rogue.… — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 27, 2018

RUSSIAN armed forces are preparing for the deployment of US nuclear missiles in Europe following Washington’s planned withdrawal from a weapons treaty amid warnings of a dangerous new arms race. Deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov said Moscow did not trust the reassurances of European and US leaders who insist additional nuclear weapons will not be rolled out and confirmed the Russian military was planning for a “worst-case scenario”. He vowed Moscow’s response would be “effective” and “relatively inexpensive.” The Kremlin has previously warned Russia will target any European countries that agrees to host US nuclear missiles. Russia is indeed a democracy that operates with the support and consent of the people. Putin unlike Trump is ready to use his armed forces as well, Putin’s ratings soared with the euphoria over Crimea’s annexation and the success of Russia branding the new Ukrainian government as fascist extremists. Ukraine’s Sunday provocation in the Sea of Azov was a violation of Russian sovereignty in the waters off Crimea despite repeated demands to cease their hostile actions. Russian border forces had no choice but to act, wounding three Ukrainian sailors and commandeering the military vessels. It’s another triumph of Russian forces against the dark forces controlling Ukraine. Putin is not constrained as he has a massive cash flows from energy and minerals to build up a modern army and expand the frontiers of the hybrid warfare of cyberattacks, internet trolling and financial support for Kremlin-friendly politicians abroad.

Ukraine’s Petro Poroshenko in an upcoming election recent polls suggest he will lose. It’s unclear how Ukraine can naively strengthen its defenses against any Russian attack on it’s own, and the West is reluctant to get involved. With the his martial decree curtailed, there’s little political benefit left for Poroshenko. The Kremlin would gain little by invading and, besides, the election provides a much better opportunity for Putin to go on destabilizing and weakening his neighbor. If Poroshenko hoped for a robust international response, he got only a belated and muted reaction from the Trump administration. Trump tweeted Sunday his usual refrain urging European allies to pay more for their national defense. But he has yet to use his preferred platform to condemn Putin. Ukrainians have four months, to pick a more competent leader over Poroshenko.

There is nothing that the control freaks Brussels, NATO, UK, Israel, Liberal News Media, Democrats will not do on behalf of starting trouble. These verbal and mental abusers as well often known as control freaks, is a sign of a mental sickness,a Control freak It is a serious personality disorder and is a derogatory term for a person who attempts to dictate how everything around them Control freaks do often have a terrible personal, social life too and these people manifest Psychological Disorders ,

These Persons who if not in control of many aspects even in other’s lives will go ballistic. This ensues telling, demanding,and a control freak likes to claim the successes of others as their own. These people obsessively try to dictate how you’re supposed to be and feel. They have an opinion about everything; disagree at your peril.

AND WHEN YOU DO NOT DO WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO DO THESE SAME RATHER LITTLE BAD CHILDREN INSULT YOU, SLANDER YOU, DIVORCE YOU, OSTRACIZE YOU, BAD MOUTH YOU.

Control freaks rarely know that they are the sick ones. They believe that they are helping people with their “constructive criticism” or taking over a project because “no one else will do it right.” They spout, dictate unsolicited advice and use anger often to put you in your place. You cannot tell them what to do.; Being a Control freak is a big, bad unacceptable disease.. and it must be treated as such.. Control freaks do often make all life terrible for those they live with, marry, work with, come in contact with.

“Arguing with the control freak seldom works. Why? Because they are an expert at justifying to themselves and everyone else why they are right. They are world authorities in being “right”. Control freaks or Bullies, abusers, wrongfully do cause others stress so they can maintain a false sense of order.

If you are a Control freak you are not only still an unrealistic, immature, immoral person but you have a serious personality disorder.You are a menace, plus a real danger to yourself and to others, for you are an abuser, a human rights violator too. They have spent whole lifetimes practicing “being right”. So trying to out-argue them can be nigh on impossible.”

These bad control freaks and their sad present development it now has too often been a long time in the making now, for they did not arrive to this disturbed state of mind likely even over night,

Do readily now Tell them to get help, and the sooner the better, to deal with their much too many fears due often to their personal unresolved guilt, and/or fears of negative resulting possible consequences, or the fear of dying, getting hurt, being fired, mugged, becoming poor, or whatever..

Beware always of men and women, bullies, tormentors, control freaks, persons, civil and public servants, politicians, pastors, leaders, elders, who falsely do, will try to enslave you, oppress you, exploit you even while they claim they are proclaiming the truth, democracy, trying to help you, etc.,

Is 51:23 ..your tormentors {and} oppressors, those who said to you, Bow down, that we may ride {or} tread over you; and you have made your back like the ground and like the street for them to pass over Is 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have love, pity, {and} mercy for him, and to our God, for He will multiply to him His abundant pardon. 8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.

Ex-Alberta MP Jaffer’s drug, Impaired driving charges dropped


 

Public should know more about Jaffer: Nicholson  Globe and Mail  Mr. Jaffer is a former Conservative MP from Edmonton. He is married to Harper”s cabinet minister Helena Guergis.
 
Political stereotypes, joined at the hip National Post  What we think is this: that these people enter public life booming their concern for the little guy, the average Joe, the set-upon taxpayer, but as soon as they clip on their MP wings they can’t wait to shake off the dust of where they came from, parade their special status and go full prima donna as a matter of right.  Stephen Harper, we all remember, came out of Reform, a populist political movement that very particularly made a point of reminding Canadians how politicians, “once they got to Ottawa,” forgot the people, lost touch with their roots, ignored their constituents.  

Guergis, Jaffer at height of hypocrisy TheChronicleHerald.ca  IT’S NO WONDER that many young people don’t pay attention to politics. It is a dreary parade of lumpy middle-aged people in suits reading misleading and evasive talking points to one another, projecting emotions they don’t feel as they defend their parties, attack other parties and attempt to attract the attention of tuned-out voters with dim-witted propaganda. Thank goodness, then, for Helena Guergis and Rahim Jaffer, the Tory poster couple for bad behaviour, for offering young people a bit of titillation this week. It has been pretty good theatre — a farce in two acts — wherein they behave badly, with no consequences to themselves beyond public scorn, and we all get to enjoy the spectacle. The Tories look like they are coddling a couple of spoiled brats, and they look like hypocrites. Much of the Tories’ electoral success was based on a simple-minded anti-crime message. They promise to get tough, and pass laws requiring mandatory sentences. They self-righteously and dishonestly bleat at the opposition for obstructing those bills, and then kill those bills by proroguing. The Jaffer case still points to the reality of our criminal justice system. A lot of people get light sentences because of plea bargains.Sad..

Jaffer and Guergis have done us all a favour for drawing attention to the limits of the Conservatives’ crime agenda. Their farcical support of it too.. When it came to appealing the light sentence given to one of their own the Conservatives shut up.

The Canadian Press

Conservative minister Helena Guergis, minister of state for the status of women, was recently forced to apologize for an angry outburst against airport and Air Canada staff in Charlottetown. She allegedly seethed at being put through airline procedures as she arrived minutes before a scheduled flight, calling the city a “hellhole” and uttering a profanity.  Guergis   is also dealing with the fallout from husband Rahim Jaffer’s careless-driving charge. Jaffer, a former Conservative MP, saw charges of impaired driving and drug possession dropped – a “break” in the words of the judge who heard his case.

This is the same new Political party that had promised to be good, different from all the others firstly but basically still are the same.

Too many Canadians  consider  the apparent incompetence, favouritism and indifference exhibited by the Crown in withdrawing the more serious charges, including impaired driving, laid against Jaffer as unacceptable. The former Reform and Conservative MP Rahim Jaffer gets a slap on the wrist. He received what even the judge in the case conceded was a “break”. Next the  Law and order Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper, federal Justice Minister, and the federal security minister are not demanding a retrial cause they are happy one of their own got off scott free?  Considering Jaffer’s own tough-on-crime messages and the Conservative government’s dim view of lenient sentencing by judges, this all smells  of real hypocrisy now to all..

The $500 fine given to former Conservative MP Rahim Jaffer for careless driving by an Ontario judge on March 9, after he was initially charged with cocaine possession, impaired driving and speeding, hardly sends a message as a deterrent. This case raises the question, Can influence, money and a good lawyer sway the course of justice? Most Canadians will consider the penalty handed out to Jaffer to be unreasonable. http://www.edmontonjournal.com/news/Jaffer+sentence+laws+jeopardy/2669583/story.html

Former Conservative MP Rahim Jafferwas stopped for speeding north of Toronto last September. Provincial police from the Caledon detachment arrested him after he admitted to having consumed two bottles of beer and he failed a breath test.Police laid three charges against Jaffer – possession of cocaine, drunk driving and speeding – for doing 90 kilometres an hour in a 50 km/h zone. The advocacy group Mothers Against Drunk Driving has written to Ontario’s attorney general, demanding to know why the drunk driving case against Jaffer fell apart. “It is critical that answers be provided as to why the case did not proceed with the original charges, given that the evidence appeared to warrant and support the charges,” wrote MADD Canada’s National President Margaret Miller in the letter. The NDP’s justice critic, Joe Comartin,  said he wants both the provincial attorney general and Justice Minister Rob Nicholson to explain to Canadians why very serious charges against Jaffer were dropped, because there’s a “perception” of a double-standard.

Former Conservative MP Rahim Jaffer pleaded guilty today in Orangeville, Ont., to careless driving.  Charges of cocaine possession and drunk driving were withdrawn. Jaffer, who is married to junior federal cabinet minister Helena Guergis, was fined $500. Jaffer, 38, was arrested last Sept. 10 after police stopped him for speeding in Palgrave, Ont., north of Toronto.  The judge said he hoped the former politician recognized the break he was getting. Jaffer was first elected as an Alberta Conservative MP in 1997 but lost in his riding in 2008.

“WHAT?!!!  What a joke. How in the hell do you plead coke possession and impaired driving down to careless driving?  This slimeball should be in jail. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE.”
 
 

Sadly  this is a crappy judgment.. a poor ordinary fellow would get no breaks like this.. Our Conservative government law and order, accountability falsely does not apply to one of their own..

 The decision drew howls of outrage from government critics, who accused the Conservatives of gross hypocrisy for promoting an aggressive “tough-on-crime” agenda but remaining silent when the mantra was not applied to one of their own. Conservatives, up to and including the prime minister, have publicly criticized judges for sentences they deemed too light. Harper, unsolicited, publicly questioned the sentence handed to a Toronto terrorism convict in January.  But on Tuesday several Conservative MPs stressed that the Jaffer court proceedings were in Ontario jurisdiction and had nothing to do with the federal government. Yet political intervention is precisely what the Conservatives are pushing when they enact mandatory minimum sentencing laws, said several experts. “Prosecutors and judges strike deals to preserve proportionality. But because they can’t do it in public, they do it behind closed doors.” And a well-recorded history of increased plea bargains in areas of mandatory minimum sentences suggests it is people like Jaffer – connected, educated, wealthy – who benefit most, said criminologist Neil Boyd of Simon Fraser University in Burnaby.

Judge gives former Tory MP $500 slap on wrist Toronto Star When he was re-elected in 2006, Prime Minister Stephen Harper named him chair of the Conservative caucus.

Tories bristle when asked to explain Rahim Jaffer’s ‘slap on the wrist’ Globe and Mail (blog)

Tories should take Jaffer lesson to heart, dump minimum sentences: experts The Canadian Press

Poor optics on Jaffer sentence Ottawa Citizen

  

 
 
 
 
 
 so next the drunk cops will be let of the hook too ehhh
Rahim Jaffer and Helena Guergis have become the poster couple for political entitlement. Jaffer, a former MP and one-time chair of the Conservatives’s national caucus, was under intense pressure Wednesday to explain how he dodged impaired driving and cocaine possession charges in a plea bargain that earned him a $500 fine for careless driving. And the appearance of preferential treatment in his case was linked to that of his wife, the junior status of women minister who was allowed to board a plane last month despite throwing a public, obscenity-laced tantrum at Charlottetown airport.  Guergis issued a written statement apologizing for speaking “emotionally” to airport and airline staff while catching a plane. She conceded her conduct — allegedly yelling at employees, trying to force her way through a security barrier and grousing about being “stuck in this hell hole” — was inappropriate. Get rid of this couple they are an embaressement to all Canadians!!

Welcome to not one big Canada but too many seperate parts..

 

New Canadians , new immigrants to Canada are often really surprised to find out that next in reality, in fact , unlike the lies too often conveyed to them , that Canada in reality is not one big country with the same equal rights, the same equal  services available in all the parts of Canada. They are not only to surprised that the type of supposedly universal Medicare services available in Canada actually  seriously differs from province to province,  since Health and social welfare are provincial issues under provincial registrations, but so do   many of the laws, and related penalties, such as the penalties for drunk driving as well differ from province to province, so does the quality and the type of police services, social services now offered to all as well. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/10/03/insuring-adequate-consumer-protection/
 
AND WHAT ELSE?
 
Food, Health, Medical Standards  and professional standards and their enforcements vary often even from province to province too. University Education fees now also differ now too. When the governments lie and say they are looking after the good welfare of all of the citizens, it even seriously now depends where you actually do  live in Canada.
 
 OTTAWA – Canadians have universal health care, but a new study shows big differences in health spending across the country, suggesting there may also be inequalities in the quality and quantity of medical care people receive.The analysis of health-care spending by Toronto-based Dale Orr Economic Insight shows that some provinces spend hundreds of dollars more per capita than others.The breakdown in medicare expenditures shows Newfoundland spends $1,000 more per person – or about 30 per cent more – than Quebec, which has been consistently near the bottom on spending on health care over the last decade.Ontario, Canada’s most populous and second most prosperous province in terms of per capita income, is surprisingly near the bottom on health-care spending at $3,712, higher only than Quebec’s $3,419. The highest per capita health-care spenders are Newfoundland at $4,490 and Saskatchewan and Alberta at just over $4,400 each. The amounts are forecasts for the year 2009 from the Canadian Institute of Health Information.

Here is what I at least have found amazing about real life, the amount of evil, wrong doings does depend on the actual places you go to. In Canada I have found some cities are worse over others. I have also found that some banking institutions, governmental offices  are better over others. The same truth applies to hospitals, schools or what ever. Needless to say all this depends on the local management styles, policies or actually too often the lack of it.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

PS: The amount of money spent does not necessary mean quality care.. they the governments  are merely putting more money into pails full of holes merely.. There generally is still no real personal  management of the quality of medical services provided by doctors and nurses anywhere in Canada.. thus the medical workers they still do tend to do their own thing which most of the time still seems to be coffee breaks, etc., as i have detailed elsewhere often too…

 

Leg and Heart surgery

 

 Firstly all of the governments need  to allot a lot more money for Medicare, heart and leg surgery and for decades now too as well .. and likely this money will be partially abused again as well..  some thing I still do see too often now too.. doctors and nurses even not properly supervised..
 
Quebec to address heart surgery delays Quebec Health Minister Yves Bolduc is promising to reduce the waiting list for heart surgery in the province after a 65-year-old patient died while on the waiting list for a relatively straightforward procedure.  Jean-Guy Pitre, a retired police officer, died Friday after waiting more than five months for the operation to repair a blocked aorta, which was to take place at Montreals Hotel Dieu hospital. Officials at the University of Montreal Health Centre (CHUM), said it was forced to postpone Pitres surgery because of a lack of beds in the intensive care unit
http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100308/canada/canada_montreal_mtl_quebec_heart_surgery_wait
  

Anyone stupid to say that the main problem is due to the lack of nurses is a fool.. for the root problem is the fact the Hospitals have a limited annual budget for heart surgery teams overall and for decades now as well, and not just in Quebec. heart surgery at $50,000 plus is a costly undertaking.. so only about 10 percent of the people who need it get it.. and I have been writing that truth now for 15 years now too. In Quebec and in many of the other provinces they do often practice pretentious, token Medicare.. they in the pretentious McGill West Island Health Social Services Centre, McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) and in the University of Montreal Health Centre (CHUM),  allow the public to think they have adequate medical services only.. but do not have the staff, equipment, resources for it.. especially now for both heart and leg surgeries now.. and as the population in Canada gets older this is becoming even more obvious too.

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/03/09/canadian-health-care/
 
The reality also is  that   a God/faith  based forgiveness approach still works only if one admits that one lies, one has to first admit he has sinned  before he or she can receive help, forgiveness for it.. like it or not.
 
Useless Watchdog ready to handle ER probes.
It is misleading to say that the lack of Hospital beds is the sole problem..
 
Do you even  know what the actual patient waiting time  is to see a cardiologist  for example outside of the hospital, or an eye doctor, or a  skin specialist, a knee specialist  for a start?
 
Having been to the emergency about 7 times at least this year alone with my senior father there are 3 things essential for all for a start  to note..
 
1 People who are seriously ill cannot generally  be helped by their family doctors, cause they  still generally  do not have the essential medical skills or even access to the essential medical tests..
 
Only hospital tend to have the best, essential testing equipment, medical personnel .. so the lack of emergency room or hospital beds  here  now is not the sole problem..
 
in reality rather the root problem is the lack of hospital staff to test the sick people 24 hours per day and seven days a week since the good hospital staff, medical technicians and doctors  tend to work 9-5 and  five days a week only.. and this is the root problem
 
Generally too many inadequate, pretentious medical test are also still being done initially too by the family doctors and emergency rooms one too.
 
2 What the lack of emergency and hospital  beds now also means though is that the patient cannot firstly get medically diagnosed and get get their blood tests done within the first 4 hours..
 
so they can if needed be put into an emergency bed for 48 hours and next if needed.. transferred to the Hospital bed for 10 days at the most where more medical  tests can be done…
 
what we here also really still do need is not more beds.. but hospital medical testing facilities to be available 7 days a week, 24 hours per day..
 
3 The lack of proven, skilled medical personnel is still problem especially, especially   in emergency rooms and elsewhere..
 
for instance inexperienced, nurses and inexperienced  doctors should not be allowed to look after  the patients in the emergency room.. Reality   rather here  we need qualified and experienced medical personnel here and   24 hours per day and seven days a week here.. which too often is not the case too…
 
4 Now I myself have been to the emergency room at least 5 times the last few years.. 
 
Note this I had 5 different doctors at the same hospital give 5 different reason for my sickness initially and none of them were right.. the actual sickness was determined only after I was admitted and serious testing done..
 
In many  other instances the emergency room could not help me or others cause they did not have at all the proper medical experts available at all in the emergency room.. since they tend to  too often concentrate, specialize in recognizing  heart attacks, cancer , broken bones mainly  it seems.
 
Oh well if you cannot get good medical servcie   in Canada you can go to the states if you are rich..
 

$5M project targets heart failure Calgary Herald – Scientists and physicians have launched an Albertawide research project to better identify and treat heart failure, a condition that affects 80000 Albertans. Across Canada, the figure swells to over 500,000. Symptoms of heart failure include shortness of breath, chest pain, difficulty exercising, and swelling of the ankles.

 

Notice the spin doctors do not deal truthfully or specially with how many people who have been diagnosed with serious heart problems got treated within 6 months to 2 years at the most and why was that? Reality heart treatment is done at major hospitals only who do not get paid on a per patient basis, but only get an annual budget to work with, a budget which varies with each city,  province now too, so they firstly do not treat all the serious heart patients.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/05/12/canadian-mortaility-rate-death-health-heart-disease-cancer/

AND WHO IS PAYING FOR THIS

AND WHO IS PAYING FOR THIS
 
Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Julian Fantino DEFENCE, COURT ACTIONS, THE CITIZENS AGAIN?
 
“The Canadian Press  TORONTO – An adjudicator had every reason to feel he was being threatened by an experienced lawyer acting for Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Julian Fantino, and his reaction did not indicate bias, a court heard Thursday.  Lawyer Julian Falconer, who represents two officers charged by Fantino with professional misconduct, told Divisional Court the adjudicator’s anger at being told he would be appealed if he didn’t step down was perfectly understandable.  “It was an extraordinary submission to make to an adjudicator. It was unnecessary. It was offensive.”  At issue is whether Leonard Montgomery is unfit to continue hearing a disciplinary case against the two senior officers, as Fantino contends.  In November, Fantino’s lawyer Brian Gover asked Montgomery to step down and said he would take the matter to court if the retired justice did not do so. Gover also insisted he had the full support of the province’s attorney general – something the ministry immediately disavowed.   Montgomery refused to step down. Gover’s comments, Montgomery said, amounted to a “highly improper” attempt to intimidate a judicial officer. He also complained about apparent political interference and conflicts of interest related to the Ministry of the Attorney General’s involvement.  Fantino HAS A new lawyer Tom Curry . At several points, Justice James Carnwath challenged Curry’s assertion that Montgomery had shown bias rather than a normal reaction to Gover’s announcement he would go to court if not satisfied.  “This kind of statement leads to some pretty harsh responses from the bench,” Carnwath noted.  “(Montgomery) was pretty constrained.”   Montgomery had  called Fantino’s credibility into question when the commissioner changed his testimony during the disciplinary hearing in October.   The labyrinthine disciplinary hearing involves two former members of the provincial police internal standards bureau.  They are accused under the Police Services Act in relation to an investigation they did into how officers responded to a domestic violence complaint involving an officer and his estranged wife more than four years ago.  But the case has ensnared Fantino, with the defence accusing him of petty vindictiveness and witness tampering.  The judges reserved their decision. ” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090108/national/fantino_hearing

Conservative Myths

    
 
“Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s inaction on a promised investigation of the death confirms that that the government is not particularly interested in identifying the problems that led to the listeriosis outbreak. Harper ruled out a public inquiry into the outbreak, which was traced to a Maple Leaf Foods plant in Toronto. Days before the last election, he did promise an “arms-length investigation” to establish whether there were problems with the food inspection system. The day before the vote was called, Harper announced the terms of reference and set a reporting deadline of March 15. But four months later, Harper has still not named a lead investigator to conduct the investigation. The March reporting deadline will not be met; at the current rate of progress, it’s reasonable to wonder if there will ever be an investigation of any kind. The government’s inaction will raise concerns — that it has something to hide, or simply doesn’t believe in the importance of appropriate regulation, even in such a critical area. That is especially true given the large number of questions about the government’s general handling of food inspection and this specific case. Canadian Food Inspection Agency inspectors, for example, say a system introduced last year left them overloaded with paperwork, responsible for too many different facilities and unable to ensure safety. The government has also moved toward shifting responsibility for inspections to industry, arguing companies have an interest in safety. The outbreak is estimated to have cost Maple Leaf Foods about $75 million. Questions remain about the response to the problem between June, when Ontario public health units began to notice an unusual number of listeriosis cases, and eventual product recalls in mid-August. Similarly, Health Canada had warned in 2005 about the risk of listeriosis from sliced lunch meats and advised that pregnant women, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems should not eat the products. Yet hospitals and seniors’ care facilities in B.C. and other provinces were serving the deli meats to patients at the time of this outbreak. And a Canadian Medical Association Journal editorial charged that “government policy errors” contributed to disaster and called for a full public inquiry into Canada’s food inspection system. Those are among the serious, credible questions about Canada’s food safety that Harper appears uninterested in seeing answered.”
 
I remember hearing about that great Conservative myth on promised full accountability, governmental transparency, a better form of governing, and the Harper- Conservative government  lies go on and on, fooling only the Conservatives as to who they really are still, liars..

Harper stays silent on Gaza

  
   
Waves of anger sweeps across the World. Hundreds of Thousands call for Mid-East peace, call for peace in Israel and Gaza, as well as recognition of the citizen’s view of the conflict there, and they want both Gaza and Israel to be free, calling  called for a sustained ceasefire and an end to all violence in the region.  ” We look upon the increasing loss of life on both sides of the Gaza conflict with horror ” . “We have no doubt that these conflicts by  Israel, and by Hamas and other militant Palestinian groups, are war crimes against the innocent citizens.  “No sovereign state should, or would, tolerate continued attacks and the deliberate targeting of civilians.  We all must demand  an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. WASHINGTON: Several thousand protesters – 10,000 according to organizers – descended on the White House in support of Palestinians in Gaza, on the heels of other protests across major world capitals. The two biggest protests calling for an end to Israel’s military offensive in the Gaza Strip took place in London and Paris, and elsewhere..
 
As far as I am concerned both sides are really not interested in any real peaceful settlements, negotiations, as History has clearly shown the last 50 years too.. both sides here tend to be really imperfect, have done many wrongs, are often equally guilty thus.. so you cannot really ask me to take one or the other sides .. An Impossible Peace: Israel/Palestine
 
 
“When the world community at the UN tried to stop the violence, the call for a ceasefire was blocked by the U.S., and Canada, to its shame, has fully supported the U.S., actually opposing the call for an immediate ceasefire,”  “These actions by Canada and the U.S. amount to a green light for the killing to continue, and they make our governments complicit to the crimes being waged in Gaza.” – David Orchard.   David Orchard who entered the Israeli consulate said people in that the city of Montreal could not support the continued bombing in Gaza. He also called for the federal government to break off relations with Israel until the military action stops.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090108/national/gaza_canada_reaction 
 
Latest update Jan 9, 2009 “.MONTREAL – Prime Minister Stephen Harper is echoing previous assertions that Canada supports an “effective and durable” ceasefire in Gaza. His comments in Montreal today come a day after the UN Security Council approved a resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire and the full withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza. Harper says the Canadian government has been clear on its position. He says both parties, Israel and Hamas, are responsible for coming to such an agreement. ” BUT Israel and Hamas ignore UN call for cease-fire.
 
 
Who will save Israel from herself?  Not the UN,  Canada, US, or  Middle East Quartet, the European Union, the United Nations, or the Arab League. Oxford University professor Avi Shlaim, Sees Israel today as a “rogue” and gangster” state led by “completely unscrupulous leaders”. Neve Gordon, a politics professor at Ben Gurion University, has declared that Israel’s actions in Gaza are like “raising animals for slaughter on a farm” and represent a “bizarre new moral element” in warfare.”The moral voice of restraint has been left behind … Everything is permitted” against Palestinians, writes a disgusted Haaretz columnist, Gideon Levy. Fellow Haaretz columnist and daughter of Holocaust survivors, Amira Haas writes of her late parents disgust at how Israeli leaders justified Israel’s wars with a “language laundromat” aimed at redefining reality and Israel’s moral compass. “Lucky my parents aren’t alive to see this,” she exclaimed. Around the world people are beginning to compare Israel’s attack on Gaza, which after the 2005 withdrawal of Israeli forces and settlers was turned literally into the world’s largest prison, to the Jewish uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto. ”
 
 
“One by one the justifications given by Israel for its latest war in Gaza are unravelling.The argument that this is a purely defensive war, launched only after Hamas broke a six-month ceasefire has been challenged, not just by observers in the know such as Jimmy Carter, the former US president who helped facilitate the truce, but by centre-right Israeli intelligence think tanks. The Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, whose December 31 report titled “Six Months of the Lull Arrangement Intelligence Report,” confirmed that the June 19 truce was only “sporadically violated, and then not by Hamas but instead by … “rogue terrorist organisations”.Instead, “the escalation and erosion of the lull arrangement” occurred after Israel killed six Hamas members on November 4 without provocation and then placed the entire Strip under an even more intensive siege the next day. According to a joint Tel Aviv University-European University study, this fits a larger pattern in which Israeli violence has been responsible for ending 79 per cent of all lulls in violence since the outbreak of the second intifada, compared with only 8 per cent for Hamas and other Palestinian factions. Indeed, the Israeli foreign ministry seems to realise that this argument is losing credibility…  the claim that the Israeli forces have gone out of their way to diminish civilian casualties – long a centre-piece of Israel’s image as an enlightened and moral democracy – is falling apart. Anyone with an internet connection can Google “Gaza humanitarian catastrophe” and find the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in the Occupied Territories and read the thousands of pages of evidence documenting the reality of the current fighting, and the long term siege on Gaza that preceded it. The Red Cross, normally scrupulous in its unwillingness to single out parties to a conflict for criticism, sharply criticised Israel for preventing medical personnel from reaching wounded Palestinians, some of whom remained trapped for days, slowly starving and dying in the Gazan rubble amidst their dead relatives. Meanwhile, the United Nations has flatly denied Israeli claims that Palestinian fighters were using the UNRWA school compound bombed on January 6, in which 40 civilians were killed, to launch attacks, and has challenged Israel to prove otherwise. Additionally, numerous flippant remarks by senior Israeli politicians and generals, including Tzipi Livni, the foreign minister, refusing to make a distinction between civilian people and institutions and fighters – “Hamas doesn’t … and neither should we” is how Livni puts it – are rightly being seen as admissions of war crimes.As Richard Falk, the UN special rapporteur, declared in his most recent statement on Gaza: “It should be pointed out unambiguously that there is no legal (or moral) justification for firing rockets at civilian targets, and that such behavior is a violation of IHR, associated with the right to life, as well as constitutes a war crime.” By the same logic, however, Israel does not have the right to use such attacks as an excuse to launch an all-out assault on the entire population of Gaza.
    
“Canadian leaders back Israel as Harper stays silent on Gaza By Shadi Elien
In the nearly two weeks since Israel began its latest air strikes in Gaza, humanitarian groups and activists around the world have condemned Israel’s actions and called for a ceasefire. Meanwhile, many Canadian politicians appear to condone the offensive route being taken by Israel.

Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon has spoken on behalf of the Conservative government in regards to Canada’s position on the conflict. In a statement released on December 27, Cannon said: “Israel has a clear right to defend itself against the continued rocket attacks by Palestinian militant groups which have deliberately targeted civilians.” He urged both sides to create conditions that would allow humanitarian aide to be accessed by those who need it in Gaza but insisted that “first and foremost those rocket attacks must stop”.

Israel’s attacks on the densely populated Gaza Strip began on December 26, and escalated into a ground offensive on January 3. The number of Palestinians killed and injured continues to grow each day. According to BBC News, at least 683 have been killed and more than 3,085 injured.

Forty people were killed and 55 were injured yesterday (January 6) when Israeli mortar fire struck the UN-run al-Fakhura school in the Jabaliya refugee camp.

Canada’s junior foreign minister, Peter Kent, commented on the strike in an interview this week with the Globe and Mail, stating that Hamas “bears the full responsibility for the deepening humanitarian tragedy”. Despite the lack of information available from Gaza, due to an Israeli ban on journalists entering the war-torn territory, Kent insisted that Hamas is the root cause of the civilian fatalities.

“We really don’t have complete details yet, other than the fact that we know that Hamas has made a habit of using civilians and civilian infrastructure as shields for their terrorist activities, and that would seem to be the case again today,” he said.

Some members of Parliament have not been as quick to blame Hamas for the deaths. In an open letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper dated yesterday, Vancouver East MP Libby Davies urged the Canadian government to condemn the attacks and demand an immediate ceasefire.

“The lack of leadership from the Canadian government is shameful in the face of such events,” Davies stated.

Davies said she has received many messages from her constituents who were “outraged that Canada has done nothing”.

The Foreign Affairs Department had tried to help 36 Canadians leave the region on January 5, but the Israeli Defence Force, which controls movement in the area, stopped the operation. Speaking after a government caucus meeting, Cannon stated that security measures prevented them from helping those who wanted to return to Canada safely, according to the Canadian Press.

Today, Canada donated $4 million toward the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, giving $3 million to the United Nations relief effort and another $1 million to the Red Cross, according to CP.

The leader of the Opposition, Michael Ignatieff, also released a statement concurring with the view of the Conservatives and the majority of western politicians.

“The Liberal Party of Canada unequivocally condemns the rocket attacks launched by Hamas against Israeli civilians and calls for an immediate end to their attacks,” Ignatieff stated on December 29.

He called for Canada to provide humanitarian aid but held firm on his stance that Israel has the right to defend itself against the attacks.

As of today, no official statements have been made by Harper on the matter, who has remained quiet on the conflict in Gaza.

However, Harper found time to express congratulations to Canada’s World Junior Hockey team in two separate news releases on the Conservative Party of Canada Web site.”   http://www.straight.com/article-179114/canadian-leaders-back-israel-harper-stays-silent-gaza 

Many true evangelicals do now support a two-state solution and creation of a new Palestinian state that includes the vast majority of the West Bank.  They support justice for both Israelis and Palestinians.  If all of the  learned men are going to be truly historically honest, surely they must admit that the Jews have every right to inhabit the land of their fathers, the covenant land given to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob by none other than God himself and admit that right was the same God who took them next away from that land now twice too… THE NEW TESTAMENT DOES NOT talk about the Jews return next to it too. But God still wants the Jews and Palestinians brothers to live in peace together.
 
 

“THE CHRISTIAN AND MISSIONARY ALLIANCE, Update from Dr. Benedict – By Gary M. Benedict – August 16, 2007  I recently joined other evangelical leaders in signing a letter to President Bush concerning peace in the Middle East. The letter represents my personal conviction and does not represent the official position of The Alliance or the Board of Directors of the C&MA. The Christian and Missionary Alliance has been ministering in the Arab lands since 1890. For more than 110 years, we have been working among Israelis and Palestinians. We are seeking to fulfill Jesus’ Commission to take the gospel to people in all nations.  The letter I signed encourages President Bush to continue to pursue a peaceful solution to the conflict in the region. We are instructed in the Bible to “seek peace and pursue it,” yet I understand that the only true and lasting peace will come when the Prince of Peace returns. Please join me in praying for the peace of Jerusalem and that many will find the peace that passes all understanding through Jesus.  We share a common concern for peace in the region and the commitment to obey Jesus’ command to spread the gospel to all people. May God be pleased to reach many and bring glory to our Lord.   Living the Call together, Gary M. Benedict  President   U.S. C&MA   ”    http://www.cmalliance.org/peaceLetter.jsp

The C&MA  is the professing Evangelical Stephen Harper’s own church  The CMA should practice what it preaches to others, and return the churches it stole from the others too.   http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/05/13/christian-missionary-alliance/

Also in Reality Conservatives need firstly to practice peaceful coexistence  in Canada! . In my 20 years of posting on the net in Canada the biggest immoral human rights violators, abusers have been the Conservatives of Alberta who clearly do not tolerate free speech, the difference of views, and they next tend to lie about, slander, delete unwanted non conforming posters who do not go along with their too often immoral, redneck views.  http://thenonconformer.blogspot.com/2006/08/non-conformer.html

>– I have often been wrongfully abused on Alberta’s immoral conservative blogs too.. as I have detailed on the net fully too now.

Like I had posted on the net a long time ago too   “Reality In my 20 years of posting on the net in Canada the biggest immoral human rights violators, abusers have been the Conservatives of Alberta who clearly do not tolerate free speech, the difference of views, and they next tend to lie about, slander, delete unwanted non conforming posters who do not go along with their too often immoral, redneck views. – Here is a great example of what the Democratic Conservatives are really still like in Canada.. They still do immorally, wrongfully delete all my posts at http://www.freedominion.ca/phpBB2/index.php and their clearly hypocritical pretense of freedom of speech is appalling  All the BS about democracy, still next indicates that the Conservatives are the biggest liars and abusers of other’s human rights. Simply just try to post disagreeing messages on the Conservative sites such as http://canadiancoalition.com/forum/ccd-forum.shtml or the Western Standard Blog http://westernstandard.blogs.com dominated by a minority of self centered, abusive rednecks and you for sure next will be firstly abused, slandered, personally bashed, attacked and next cut off, denied access to it. The self proclaimed Conservatives posters there in Alberta are still some of the biggest liars, human rights abusers even if they lie and claim they are Christians now too. It has been that way for the last 25 years in my real Albertan experiences now too. Even an Ostrich cannot hide from the realties of life forever. When you access the supposed free speech, democratic site of http://canadiancoalition.com/forum/ccd-forum.shtml the sysop accesses your own personal computer to find all of the personal information about you, an unlawful invasion of privacy without ones prior permission, and this the federal Conservative government and it’s Justice Minister, the RCMP should look into. The same sysop who himself is not impartial, but another one of these self proclaimed Conservative supporter, a basher and abuser, who makes slanderous personal attacks on the posters rather than deal with the facts presented, he even has admitted to spying now on others in one of his post too. I rightfully would like Alberta’s human rights also to review these matters too as well as the Justice department PS He had deleted my reply to him on this on him being an unlawful voyeur and other messages that were unfavorable to Alberta and it’s hypocritical democracy. I clearly had supported the Western Standard right of printing the cartoons under their right of free speech. But now I personally find out that their Internet site deliberately not only promotes hatred towards Canada, specially easterners but in an unfair and undemocratic process it deletes the unfavorable messages, towards Alberta too, such as this own below. This is both hypocritical and unacceptable on their parts. Please do Deal with it properly now. ” Western Standard’s invasion of other people’s computer is an illegal invasion of one’s personal privacy. – Comcast High-Speed Internet Acceptable Use Policy http://www.comcast.net/terms/use.jsp .. we will “access any other person’s computer or computer system, software, or data without their knowledge and consent; breach the security of another user; or attempt to circumvent the user authentication or security of any host, network, or account. This includes, but is not limited to, accessing data not intended for you, logging into or making use of a server or account you are not expressly authorized to access, or probing the security of other hosts, networks, or accounts; ” Scary scary stuff. Let the Alberta Human rights commissioner, Justice department also know that know this is illegal now for the other parties did not consent to this in writing. ” http://westernstandard.blogs.com/shotgun/2006/03/an_immense_and_.html#  Clearly here too the Conservatives are still the big hypocrites who themselves do not keep the laws they preach to the others. ” http://westernstandard.blogs.com/shotgun/2006/03/alberta_leaders.html#comment-15217299 ” and next July it will be the Conservative Stephen Harper’s turn to lose face and face a reelection, and likely only another minority government.” http://thenonconformer.blogspot.com/2006/08/non-conformer.html

 

So why is it some people still do think they can get away with any of it when clearly they cannot.

PM Stephen Harper the Pretender

 
 
Clearly a Loser Stephen Harper the unprofessional, the addicted gambler, so whatever happens next  will mainly be a direct result of Stephen Harper’s arrogance, blind partisanship, poor judgment calls.
Canada’s Stephen Harper Conservatives lost parliament’s confidence and to avoid defeat, prorogued the house when action was desperately needed on the economy. Toward the end of January, he will return with a budget full of goodies Canadians will pay for with our tax dollars in an attempt to bribe enough opposition members to allow his government’s survival. If he fails, we will either have a coalition government or another unnecessary election, wasting both time and money. 

 “It seems there is no conservative principle that Stephen Harper isn’t willing to sacrifice.  The conservatives promised a more transparent government, but have run the most closed, hidden government in Canada’s history.  The conservatives promised to decentralize power from the Prime Minister’s Office, but we all know how that turned out.  Harper is the Minister of Everything; rarely allowing fellow caucus members to choose how much sugar to put in their Timmies.Harper promised not to tax income trusts, but taxed them as soon as he won power.  Harper promised to reform the senate, but decided instead to appoint 18 cronies.  Harper decided to run a more open selection process for judges to the Supreme Court of Canada, but decided to appoint his hand-picked candidate when the process started taking longer than he anticipated. There doesn’t seem to be a single principle that Harper isn’t willing to sacrifice.  Everyone should remember this when it comes time to vote.  Don’t trust what your local conservative candidate tells you, because what you’re going to get is whatever Harper thinks is the flavour of the month”

http://blogs.mississauga.com/blogs/misslib/2009/01/05/harper%2526%2523039%3Bs-principles
   
The outbreak of listeriosis   killed 20 Canadians last year. It is in ours and in the GOVERNMENTS interests, after all, to ensure that no similar tragedies occur under ALL of  their watch. . On Sept. 3, 2008, Prime Minister Stephen Harper had announced that there would be “an arm’s-length investigation to make sure we get to the bottom, on the government side, on the bureaucratic side, of exactly what transpired” in the fatal outbreak of bacteria in Maple Leaf Foods luncheon meats, “and to make sure as we go forward and we make changes to our system that this kind of thing can’t happen again.” Specifically on Sept. 6, the day before the election was called, Mr. Harper announced the terms of reference – including a reporting deadline of March 15, 2009. That deadline may have been a little ambitious, since an investigation of complex regulations and their enforcement could take longer than a few months. But yet now the same federal government does not appear to be making an effort to meet it – or to treat the matter with any degree of urgency. Even Four months later, and nearly two-thirds of the way through its self-imposed time-frame, it is now still being reported that the government has not yet even named a lead investigator. At this rate, it unlikely that the investigation will even be completed this year. Stephen Harper’s government’s apparent failure to launch an investigation it promised early last fall raises the unsettling thought that its pledge was made largely to prevent the issue from jeopardizing its prospects in the election campaign. There is no plausible justification for this delay. Parliament need not be sitting for the government to appoint investigators; it requires no legislation.   If Mr. Harper was comfortable appointing 18 senators while Parliament is prorogued, he should have no qualms about naming someone to help protect.   With the exception of the controversy surrounding some ill-advised jokes made by Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz, the listeriosis outbreak played little role in the fall campaign. Canadians did not have much reason to believe the Conservatives bore responsibility for it, and were led to believe the government took the matter seriously. ALL Canadians should now feel differently knowing that  the issue would not be attended to promptly once the federal lection campaign was over. Once again Stephen Harper THE PRETENDER does not keep his promises.

The Canadian Conservative Party Headquarters asks it supporters to write, phone news editors, TV and radio stations to tell them that they do support the too often now bullying, immoral acts of the prime minister Stephen Harper.. but foolishly for them that is a war they cannot win for 60 percent of the citizens did not support, vote for the Conservative Party in the last federal election as well.. and they are not about to change their views on this still too.
 
“Since Harper was elected as Prime Minister he has failed miserably. He has probably destroyed every good thing that Canada’s former Prime Ministers have done to make Canada a good place to live in. 

All the money Paul Martin had put aside is gone because Harper went and spent it all. Maybe we need an inquiry into where the money went.

Harper has repeatedly lied about changes he promised to make, such as tougher penalties for sex offenders. Well, guess what? There are about 1,200 or more sex offenders that are not registered under the National Sex Offender Registry and are running around free as birds.

Then, Harper refused to see the truth about Canada heading into a recession. Hey Harper, instead of spending billions of dollars on your stupid wars, why don’t you help the Canadian economy or help college and university students pay their tuition.

I am really disappointed that Michaelle Jean would allow Stephen Harper to remain Prime Minister when Canada is in a crisis. The coalition has Canada’s best interests in mind more than Harper does.”.. Sarah Connell Wiarton

“Leadership? Strong voice in Ottawa?  Not to spoil Mr. Phil McColeman’s extended winter vacation, but I believe that writer Andrew Hunter raises a solid point in his recent letter which was titled: “MP’s mail out proves he’s just being muzzled.” A friend of mine once said if McColeman couldn’t possibly get things done under the control-freak Stephen Harper, he should not have promised “leadership” or a “strong voice in Ottawa” during his electoral campaign and on his website.

During the past election, former prime minister Jean Chretien stated that “if (former prime minister Pierre) Trudeau had treated him the way Harper treats his ministers, I would have resigned.”

That boils down to the classic dichotomy of our MP being clueless or dishonest.

Mr. McColeman has fulfilled the negative and unfortunate stereotype of politicians who will say anything to get elected. This is very lamentable, considering rising antipathy in voters and the fact that our riding has been fortunate to have had classy and consistent MPs such as Lloyd St. Amand, Jane Stewart and Derek Blackburn. ” Jorge Gomez

Safety and snow removal services

 
 

THE POLICE SAY THAT Slippery roads, thousands of traffic collisions  are fuelling the car insurance business where many of these drivers will face significant insurance rates increases next as a result.. 
 
BUT WHY ARE THE ROADS NOW VERY SLIPPERY? It is cause no one cleans the snow on roads fast eneough  or what jet  fuel is still being dumped by the planes on highways near airports ?
 
“There’s been more snow and more accidents through the month of December. The Calgary Police Service recorded 6,158 collisions in December, 605 of which involved injury. That’s a significant jump from 4,574 collisions in December 2007.”
 
YES THE CITY HALL CUTBACKS HAVE REDUCED SNOW REMOVAL SERVICES FIRSTLY
 
While SUVs and minivans being the most popular rental choices for winter driving.. However, once you’re behind the wheel of a rental vehicle, you may want to drive cautiously, given that you’ll likely be driving on all-season radials, not snow tires. Few, if any, car rental companies offer winter tires in Calgary. “Snow tires are mandatory only in Quebec due to a new law there that required motorists to install snow tires by Dec. 15 or face fines of up to $300. The  Quebec law has resulted in a shortage of snow tires across Canada.
 
Note this important  brief introduction to road safety and the police .. Yes  you always do have to drive safely, in control, not impaired as well and yes there are many, many different factors that now can cause a vehicular, automotive  accident, including but not limited to the actual daily road conditions, even the type of tires you have .. for  it is a fact that good tires lead to a safer drive, and so does a 4 wheel drive.  Next when you start to first drive at any day do first immediately test the road condition by coming to a planned sudden stop , and see firsthand how your car reacts accordingly.. then next do use this experience to set how you will drive the rest of the day too. And no matter what car, or tires you have, or who is the driver, if you do hit a patch of black ice, due clearly to the failure of others, such as the Governments, municipalities,  to apply salt and gravel on the icy / snowy  road, to falsely try to save money here,  it can be very, very hazardous now too. Give them the governememts firstly, municipalities,  a fine, ticket, they firstly do deserve it too.
 
Now hypothetical if you  do not drive at all you are less likely   to have an   accident, OF COURSE assuming another driver does not hit you while walking.. BUT why bother  to have cars if you are not to use them?
  
AND THEN WHAT THE  TOO OFTEN LYING, NO GOOD  POLICE BLAME THE CITIZENS FOR DRIVING TOO FAST IN POOR WEATHER CONDITIONS, WHEN IT IS THE FAULT OF THE PROVINCIAL, MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENTS FIRSTLY FOR NOT KEEPING THE ROADS ADEQUATELY CLEANED, SALTED, GRAVELED https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/12/22/cops-lie-too/ 

CP “VANCOUVER, B.C. – Residents and officials are struggling to deal with that most Canadian of inconveniences – snow – following near-record snowfall in this West Coast city in recent weeks.  And one senior who spent a week stuck in her home because she couldn’t get around the piles of snow in Vancouver says she’s disgusted that the city hasn’t done a better job clearing the streets.  Florence Corbett, 68, said she was finally able to get out Monday morning after her landlord arranged for someone to give her a ride to a bus stop so she could make it to the bank to pay her rent – five days late.  “I was able to take the bus but when I got off the bus I fell down because of the snow bank,” said Corbett, who uses a scooter to get around.  “It’s disgusting, no other words to describe it.”  Corbett said she’s been lucky because someone from the B.C. Coalition of People With Disabilities, where she volunteers, delivered groceries to her home.  Others who’ve been left to fend for themselves haven’t fared so well in a city unused to dealing with snow that sticks around. While Vancouver does get some snow, it usually melts almost as quickly as it falls.  “The city sure doesn’t look after us as far as cleaning the streets,” Corbett said.  “You can’t walk through the snow. What if you fall down? I’m a senior and if I fall down I don’t want to be breaking anything.”  Corbett, whose husband drove her around before he died 10 months ago, said she’s never experienced such isolation.  “What about people who are in wheelchairs, permanently, and they can’t get out? They’d love to go to the mall and see their friends,” she said, adding even a bus ride can be dangerous.  “It’s ridiculous the way they’ve cleared the streets because (bus drivers) can’t even lower the ramp so that you can get on the bus. And when you get off the bus, even when you’re an abled person, you can fall down because of the snow banks. It’s the way the snow is piled up on the curbs.  “I’ve seen many people fall when they get off the bus.” 

 

Vancouver’s snowfall for December was just .7 centimetres shy of the December 1964 record, only because yet another dump of snow didn’t arrive until a few hours into Jan. 1.  The snow and cold weather caused at least three deaths in the Vancouver area and left emergency vehicles, including a fire truck and ambulance, stuck in the white stuff.  City spokeswoman Jennifer Young said this year’s snow removal budget was $1.4 million, but the total cost is expected to reach double that.  Mayor Gregor Robertson said crews have made an extraordinary effort to keep up, although Coun. Suzanne Anton will introduce a motion on Jan. 20 about whether the city can do a better job in the future.  “There’s some people who have been stuck in their homes for three weeks with no city services. They cannot get in, they can’t get out, they can’t get a taxi to come in, they can’t get garbage pickup, they can’t get grocery delivery.”  Anton said the city needs to be prepared for the next time.  “We have some very significant gaps in our service delivery in this kind of snow event and I think we need to hear from the public about that.”  In 1999, then Toronto mayor Mel Lastman became the butt of jokes when he called in the army to help clear the snow in that city so people could get to buses and streetcars, saying the city would otherwise have been at a standstill.  But Shelley Hourston, program director at the B.C. Coalition of People with Disabilities, said she will be speaking to city officials about providing resources for people who become isolated in their homes during massive snowfalls.  “It’s been horrendous for people,” she said.  “Their community is when they go for their walk to go get their loaf of bread or their litre of milk. I think this has really raised some issues for Vancouver.” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090105/national/wea_disabled_snow

and how is the snow removal services , road CLEARING services in the rest of Canada, pretentious? in Alberta and in Ontario now too?

CALGARY COPS LEAD THE COUNTRY IN GIVING OUT TRAFFIC TICKETS PER  CITIZENS AND YET SPEEDING IS NOT THE MAJOR CAUSE OF DEATHS, BUT DRUNK DRIVERS ARE. AND NOT ENOUGH IS DONE BY THE POLICE IN THIS AREA OF CATCHING DRUNK DRIVERS. BUT IT IS EASIER TO COLLECT REVENUE FROM SPEEDING THAN IT IS TO CATCH  A DRUNK DRIVER FOR THE POLICE. SPEEDING TICKETS ARE MORE OF A FINANCIAL GIFTS TO THE COURTS, JUDGES, LAWYERS, INSURANCE FIRMS.    

In realities the number of vehicle  accidents STILL have been increased, but statistics show also so did the number of drunk, impaired  drivers too.  
 
Drunk driving arrests jump. Calgary Herald February 6, 2009 –  More than 65 people –three times as many as last year –were arrested in January for drunk driving in red deer as part of a stepped-up check stop program. From Jan. 1 to 31, Red Deer RCMP, along with Alberta sheriffs and the Alberta office of traffic safety, arrested 65 people, compared with 20 people in 2008. Const. Sabrina Grunow says the difference in numbers is due to increased funding for check stops.  http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Drunk+driving+arrests+jump/1259164/story.html     
 
  It is estimated that 70 percent of adults drink alcohol and at least 15 percent of Canadians are alcoholics.  According to the 2004 Canadian Addiction Survey, 79.3% of the Canadian population aged 15 years and older consumed alcohol in the year prior to the survey. Most Canadians drink17% of current drinkers were considered high-risk drinkers.   According to the study on the costs of substance abuse in Canada, it is estimated that alcohol abuse accounted for $3.3 billion in direct health care costs in 2002.(18)  Hospitalizations and deaths are two key indicators that show the toll of alcohol abuse on Canadian society.http://www.parl.gc.ca/information/library/PRBpubs/prb0620-e.htm#aconsumption 
 
Drunk driving check stops thus should be enforced all year  Drunk driving check stops thus should be enforced all year not just during December and January. Increased funding for check stops is not required also, merely reduce the number of speeding/traffic cops and put them mostly rather on drunk driving detail. Since we know that most of accidents are not even caused by speeding now in the first place too. Speeding tickets and related quotas  tend to be a false revenue generating items . Installing a 15-hundred-dollar breath-sampling device and ignition interlock on vehicles seems to be not totally effective since it seem many now have learned how to by pass it.. by having someone else breath into it, or .. 
  
 The effective job creation programs  should  rather be done through the established job creation progrmas and not by the police for the police..
 
OPP says highway crash numbers up this winter  Sunday, February 8th, 2009 9:25 am ( but they lie as to the reasons) If you have been stuck in more closures on the highways this year because of crashes, you’ve been part of a growing trend.   Crashes on OPP highways have been skidding out of control this year, topping last years list.  The OPP is reporting an increase in crashes this winter compared to last. OPP Sgt. Dave Woodford says that during the months of December and January the number of collisions has risen.  The OPP responded to over 17,000 crashes on OPP patrolled highways in the last two months. Sgt. Woodford ( Falsely) says not to blame the weather for the collisions, but drivers not driving according to road conditions, such as speeding and following too closely. While the number of crashes are up, there has been a slight decline in automobile deaths and serious injuries.  47 deaths occurred on OPP patrolled highways compared to 48 last year and 65 two years ago. Sgt. Woodford says this means most crashes are preventable. While the weather may now be getting warmer, the OPP is telling drivers to pay more attention to the roads.    http://www.680news.com/news/more.jsp?content=20090208_091710_46752
 
Beware. Lying spin doctors at work.. especially by the cops, RCMP too it seems.. Even a chief of police mostly lies about the causes of accidents.. firstly you cannot takes these police facts as reliable statistics even.. they are just one person’ s opinion as to the cause of most of the accidents, they are not the actual facts….  
 
IN FACT POLICE ARE TO LAZY TO COLLECT, COMPILE,  ACCURATE DETAILED STATISTICS..  THE CALGARY CHIEF OF POLICE ONLY GETS A COMPUTER PRINTOUT OF HOW MANY MORE TICKETS WERE ISSUED THIS YEAR OVER LAST YEAR PER AREAS.. 
 
 Accident -Traffic Ticket Facts. Less than 10% of all police officers in Ontario receive specific, detailed accident investigation training. NEVER MIND IN ALBERTA.   The failure of others to clear the highways adequately has contributed to the poor driving conditions firstly. Secondly the lack of winter tires does not help. Most of the car accident deaths were likely related to impaired drivers now too.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/02/11/the-whole-truth-comes-out/
 
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 ALOCHOL and drive still too?

January 4, 2009

Up to no good even in 2009

 
Do I really believe that our bad Conservative Prime Minister will change for the good? NO. Now how clearer can I be about that too.. Zebras do not change their stripes as well..  Where also is the promised Conservative accountability, transparency, a conservative government with higher moral standards, that does not lie, break promises? Justice for all.. What non existent?
 
“He will say anything to retain power.” “I don’t have confidence in him to deliver what he says now, because what we have experienced with Mr. Harper is that he will say anything and then reverse himself,”    When it comes to politics, NDP Leader Jack Layton also says 2008 taught him one certainty: don’t trust the prime minister. , Layton also now says that all hope that Stephen Harper’s minority Conservative government was willing to work with other parties to get things done has died.
 
Who on earth would dream Stephen Harper would now  choose to ‘retire’, and why would the Conservatives want to subject themselves to a leadership review?  Is anybody paying attention out there?  
  
In spite of the Conservative spins the new Liberal leader really cannot be seen as another identical indecisive weakling as Stephane Dion was, he was all talk but not action, therefore the new Liberal leader  with quite certainly will next kick Stephen Harper OUT OF OFFICE and be forced to go along with the coalition
  
Harper and the Conservatives are overwhelmingly popular compared to any other party in Canada but only in the mid west and Quebec, not in the East , so he Harper can never hope to have a majority government without the Quebec support, which for sure he never will get as an Anglophone, and that province also next cannot  be purchased at any time for any relatively small outlay.  Three strikes and you are out anyway..
  
So who is it that wants’ Harper to go?  Not the Conservatives Party, certainly..  but likely Stephen  Harper himself and the coalition, and  Harper does not want to be an opposition leader after he has been a Prime Minister. Harper he knows the chance of him next being reelected as   Prime Minister once he has been removed is non existent as well
 
I have to admit I am surprised as to how many persons have not seen from the start what a bad person, unacceptable one, an unacceptable bully Stephen Harper really is. Surely they cannot all be that dumb, inexperienced?
 
 Hey Stephen Harper he  is just classical psychology study now too of an abuser, including his  rivalry, abuse,  and likely violence next. If you notice the following warning signs in a person  over a period of time, the potential for increased unacceptable physical  violence by them next also exists:
 
The Classical symptoms :
a history of aggressive, abnormal, offensive behavior
serious drug or alcohol abuse
gang membership or strong desire to be accepted by the gang, to be in a gang
threatening others regularly
trouble controlling feelings like anger
withdrawal from good friends and from the normal, usual, acceptable  activities
visibly feeling rejected or alone
having been a victim of bullying, or now being a bully themselves
poor school or job performance
history of discipline problems or frequent run-ins with authority
feeling constantly disrespected
failing to acknowledge the feelings  rights of others
or failing to acknowledge  the abuse of others
access to or fascination with weapons, especially guns
When you recognize these unacceptable future increased violence warning signs in someone else deal with it.   Hoping that someone else will deal with the situation is still false way out. 
So the still mostly useless Albertan Prime Minister Stephen Harper and federal Justice Minister Rob Nicholson MP want to get tough on the young offenders, instead of on the parents, show to us all how ignorantly they are and very poor parents now too.. They clearly themselves firstly need to be educated.
 
If you are being verbally, physically, sexually abused do not hesitate to bring the matter into the open, tell your colleagues, friends and neighbors about it, your church pastors, elders too, congregation members, ands even do call the police. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty persons always serves everyone’s best interests. 

Get  educated now, and know more on  how to effectively deal with abuses, Bullies and abusive persons today. 

What the bad guys still do not like the honest, decent guys to use their own right of free speech to all too?
  
and what are you going to come after me next too again?  

“MP’s mailout proves he’s just being muzzled

Our Conservative MP has sent to all households, at taxpayers’ expense, a so-called newsletter (trimmed in the Conservative colour of choice, blue), which mentions virtually nothing about Brant, the riding he represents.

Like all Harper MPs, he is told what to say and write and, as the message from Conservative Party headquarters must be applicable to all parts of Canada, little mention is made of an MP’s riding or the MP’s constituents.

The content of the newsletter, apart from a generic piece about Remembrance Day, is simply Conservative Party propaganda with, most oddly, no mention at all of the Prime Minister’s decision to prorogue Parliament after sitting only 12 days.

A shaky start for an MP who said he wouldn’t be muzzled — all Conservative MPs are muzzled by Stephen Harper and our MP is clearly no exception.

We the citizens still do  have our right of free speech to complain even in writing about all perversity, injustice and have the rightful expectations to insure all of our elected members act immediately, properly on it too. Even in Canada the right of free speech is a myth.. and this really is not a funny joke..

Public exposure and persecution of the guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest still too..

– I have often been wrongfully abused on Alberta’s immoral conservative blogs too.. as I have detailed on the net fully too now.
 
– I have had even Conservative MPS trying to shut me up, falsely telling me not even to write to them anymore such as Moore and Kenney as I next detailed and posted on the net too.
   
As to “Is Rob a party leader in waiting? Gazing into the future of our MP, and other Niagara prognostications”   http://www.niagarafallsreview.ca/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=1371495  
 
and while some others may write about the supposed virtues of Hon. Rob Nicholson, M.P. as the new POSSIBLE PM replacement still  when Richard Johnson Parliamentary Assistant to Hon. Rob Nicholson, M.P. Minister of Justice & Attorney General of Canada he writes back to me for the first you know I have struck a key chord.. or it is campaign time?
 
Since he has been in the federal office in Ottawa  this is the first time Rob Nicholson MP that he has acknowledged any letter of mine ,, you can tell it’s re-election time thus?
 
 
 
Canada’s too often bad cops, for  real actions speak louder to me than any words.

 When even the  police chiefs, police personnel  even are also known to play dirty politics, who can you trust then?

” CP TORONTO – Accusations of high-level political interference, petty vindictiveness and tarnished reputations will be on public display this week as Ontario’s top cop heads to court to force an adjudicator he accuses of bias to step down from a police disciplinary hearing.  The Divisional Court case Thursday that has entangled Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Julian Fantino comes years after an act of domestic violence that, at most, would have been a media footnote.  Instead, a years-long process was set in motion that has raised troubling questions about the politics of justice in Ontario.  A dust storm of allegations – witness tampering, personal reprisals, professional wrongdoing, legal chess games and judicial intimidation and judicial bias – still swirls.  Court files and hearing documents show it all began when a frightened Susan Cole called 911 one evening in April 2004.  She said her estranged husband, provincial police Const. Robert Alaire, had taken a baseball bat to her car at their home in Gananoque, Ont.  Det.-Sgt. Mark Zulinski and other officers responded. They asked her to leave her home. They did not arrest Alaire.  Cole complained. Her husband, she said, should have been arrested.  “It should have been a slam dunk,” Cole said in an interview. “(Instead) it’s a nightmare. It’s just not right.”  Cole’s complaint reached the civilian agency that oversees the province’s police. It asked for an investigation.  Two senior officers in the Ontario Provincial Police’s professional standards bureau – Supt. Ken MacDonald and Insp. Alison Jevons – eventually concluded proper procedure had not been followed.  They recommended “education” rather than sanctions.  The union that represents provincial police officers was outraged.  “We may have the ammo to take down MacDonald,” the union’s lawyer, Gavin May, wrote in an email to Karl Walsh, the president of the Ontario Provincial Police Association, in August 2006.  “We may get two for the price of one.”  The association formally complained about the two officers two weeks later. The complaint landed on the desk of Ontario’s top cop – freshly appointed Commissioner Julian Fantino.  Fantino was also dealing with fallout from his plans to restructure the 6,000-member police force he now headed. Someone was leaking the plans to town council in Caledon, northwest of Toronto, and some local politicians didn’t like what they were hearing.  Fantino concluded the leak must have come from MacDonald, witnesses testified.  In a parking lot on March 1, 2007, Fantino said to another senior officer: “Will you execute the disloyal one, or should I?”  Fantino later explained the comment as humour, or “appropriate” police speak, a way of saying he wanted the leak stopped and an end to the distractions it was causing.  What he didn’t know was that Chief Supt. Bill Grodzinski made notes of the conversation.  Fantino charged MacDonald and Jevons, both of whom he transferred out of the professional standards unit without speaking to them or their supervisors, under the Police Services Act.  The two officers stood accused of misconduct and deceit related to their investigation of the response to Cole’s 911 call.  Any suggestion he laid the charges to appease the police union or to get back at MacDonald for the leak were “hysterical nonsense,” Fantino has said.  The first two associates Fantino appointed to preside over the hearing against MacDonald and Jevons both stepped down over issues of potential bias.  Months passed before Leonard Montgomery, a retired Superior Court justice with 33 years on the bench, would step into the increasingly mucky swamp as adjudicator.  Called to testify, Grodzinski produced his notes, including those of Fantino asking about executing the “disloyal one.”  The next morning, the officer found out he was being transferred.  Fantino later said he thought he was doing Grodzinski a favour, although he expressed disdain about the “cheat notes.”  “People who know me do not hold onto these notes for later retribution,” he said.  Grodzinski was blunt.  “I viewed the transfer . . . as an immediate punishment, sanction, reprisal – use what word you wish,” Grodzinski said.  Intervention from Deb Newman, deputy minister with the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, undid the forced transfer.  Julian Falconer, acting for Jevons and MacDonald, denounces the transfer threat as nothing short of witness tampering.  The hearings against MacDonald and Jevons proceeded amid increasing acrimony between the prosecution led by Brian Gover, a well regarded, experienced former Crown lawyer acting for Fantino, and the defence.  The defence argued to have the case thrown out as an abuse of process.  During hearings in October in which Fantino insulted Falconer and tensions ran high, Fantino changed some of his testimony. The notion that someone had tipped him off during a lunch break led Montgomery to remark that he was “upset.”  Gover filed a motion – Fantino was in the middle of being cross-examined – asking Montgomery to step down as biased.  He would take the matter to court if Montgomery refused, Gover said, adding the attorney general backed his position.  Within a few hours, the ministry disavowed any such backing and said Attorney General Chris Bentley had not been involved.  A stunned Montgomery branded Gover’s comments as attempted judicial intimidation and refused to step down.  If the ministry had indeed said it wanted him off the case, the political interference was astounding and the conflicts of interest “endless,” Montgomery wrote.  Gover remained adamant the attorney general wanted Montgomery gone and had pledged its support.  Falconer, in the interim, demanded his interrupted cross-examination of Fantino go ahead. Fantino’s new lawyer, Tom Curry, asked Divisional Court to stay the proceedings until the recusal motion was decided.   The court refused to interfere. Montgomery was perhaps just “calling a spade a spade,” the judge said.  Fantino appealed.  A three-judge panel split in his favour, staying his cross-examination until after the recusal motion is dealt with on Thursday.  In the interim, MacDonald and Jevons sit quietly through hours of hearings, seemingly no closer to having their case decided.  Cole, who said the two officers were the only ones who ever helped her, said she was dumbfounded at what her complaint unleashed almost five years ago.  All she ever wanted, she said, was for provincial police to implement a sensible policy when officers are involved in domestic violence.  “It’s gone on to actually hurt some really good people. Like it’s just endless.”” Nasty Fantino battle started with baseball bat, winds through courts 
  
Here are other interesting blogs about the bad police in Ottawa and in Ontario you can look into more further too. 

 OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino has lost an attempt to remove a retired judge presiding over a high-profile disciplinary hearing. The Ontario Divisional Court ruled yesterday that Justice Leonard Montgomery did not show bias against Commissioner Fantino in comments made as the adjudicator of a sometimes fractious hearing. “The matters complained of do not give rise to a reasonable apprehension of bias,” said the Divisional Court panel in a 3-0 decision. The court ordered the disciplinary hearing to resume in front of Judge Montgomery and indicated that it would be “conjecture” to suggest he would not act properly in the future, given the removal attempt by Commissioner Fantino. Otherwise, any side unhappy with a judge “could attempt to remove an unwanted judicial officer simply by bringing a complaint of bias against the officer,” the court said. “That would be inimical to the proper working of the justice system.” Julian Falconer, who represents Supt. MacDonald and Insp. Jevons, said his clients want to resume the hearing and the cross-examination of Commissioner Fantino as soon as possible. “This has been hanging over their heads for years. Apparently limitless (taxpayer’s)  resources have been poured into delaying this matter,” Mr. Falconer said, noting that there have been three separate court hearings related to the attempt to remove Judge Montgomery.http://www.nationalpost.com/news/canada/story.html?id=1375420
