The problem of doing your own thing

stop G

The problem of doing your own thing, sadly can too often mean also that it is harmful to yourself and still  also  next to the others. but there will be always the 30 percent hard core persons who will still vigorously support it..
.
For example: there is the false reasoning that the supposedly positive   benefits that “the increase use of  Marijuana might largely displace alcohol use, producing little or no net increase in intoxication but producing a safer society overall since pot is less damaging than alcohol”, is faulty at it’s core since Pot undeniable cause irreversible brain damages, leads to not just to an addiction too it like alcohol, but also similarly cause mental retardation in both cases.. Alcohol is still a basic  “stepping-stone drug” to other immoral acts, bad drug usages.. even if it is legal, cheap, potent. The people who take pot still tend to not stop consuming alcohol.. and other bad drugs too.. People who approve of their usages are stoned, or  then they must be just plain stupid! The myth that  people who use it cause no harm to other people is a myth still too..  The negative side effects of alcohol and bad drugs  are well know already…the false supposedly positive statements is an ostrich approach that  still neglects all of the other real negative realities.
.

A world-renowned hacker, New Zealand-born Barnaby Jack who died in San Francisco in July, overdosed on a mix of heroin, cocaine and other drugs, a coroner’s report shows. An autopsy revealed that “acute mixed drug intoxication” led to his death, San Francisco’s medical examiner said. The report also had said Mr Jack’s girlfriend had found him lying in bed unresponsive, with “multiple bottles of beer and champagne in the garbage can“.

.

PEOPLE WHO TAKE DRUGS, ALCOHOL TEND ALSO TO CHEAT, LIE, STEAL. INDULGE IN PORN, COMMIT ADULTERY, TAX EVASIONS.. AS THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A LITTLE BIT PREGNANT SIN  HERE TOO..

.

Most headlines about moderate alcohol consumption are still misleading ones —such as a drink or two a day is good for your heart, your soul, and may even extend your lifespan! But a  new study finds that regularly consuming even moderate amounts of alcohol can cause a decrease in brain plasticity, or the brain’s ability to generate new cells.  It rather kills even existing brain cells..  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/04/01/alcohol-consumptiom-is-still-one-of-canadas-biggest-problem/

.

There is always still the reality of the  warnings of the health risks of marijuana and alcohol usage, rightful warnings that cannot be ignored or dreamed away. .I can’t, for the life of me, understand how any normal, honest, rational person can, in good conscience, support the legal availability of alcohol, or any extremely harmful drug  as It’s quite baffling, contrary to good personal health care. in any case with the human tendency to excess like with anything, too much of  any thing can be still really  bad, harmful  to you  Smoking pot is different here too. . Even plain cigarette smoking is harmful to you as we all can know.

.

Everyone who drink or use pot  will suffer brain injury but the Youths who drink or use pot are more likely than others to suffer  traumatic  brain injury. Alcohol and drugs can damage a teen’s brain in more ways than people think.  Their negative Symptoms include loss of consciousness, dizziness, headaches, moodiness, difficulty concentrating and increased sensitivity to light and sounds. Teens who reported having 40 or more drinks in the past year had more than five times the odds of suffering a traumatic brain injury than youths who abstained. Those who smoked pot 10 or more times in the past year were more than three times as likely to report a brain injury. But booze and pot can also make people dizzy and disoriented and alter their perception of distance and space.  We already do know from adult studies just how devastating some of these   drinking alcohol  or   pot use injuries can be on all of the people’s quality of life, their ability to hold steady employment, their relationships, substance use and mental health.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/drink-alcohol-and-die/

.

Yes all of the persons who take bad drugs and alcohol suffer undeniably irreversible brain damage, death of brain cells, become more and more mentally  retarded. Believe it or not Accept it or not!  Most headlines about moderate alcohol consumption are still misleading ones —such as a drink or two a day is good for your heart, your soul, and may even extend your lifespan! But a  new study finds that regularly consuming even moderate amounts of alcohol can cause a decrease in brain plasticity, or the brain’s ability to generate new cells.  It rather kills even existing brain cells.. 

.
Once the alcohol is absorbed into the tissue, it affects your mind and body.  Blood alcohol concentration can rise up to 20 minutes after having a drink. After alcohol is absorbed it leaves the body in three ways: the kidneys, lungs, and liver. Alcohol is not a stimulant, it is actually a sedative-depressant of the central nervous-system, it is capable of rupturing blood capillaries and veins, it does not warm you up; in fact it makes you colder by increasing perspiration and causing body heat loss, it damages the branched end of nerve cells that bring messages into the cell, causing disruptions to brain function. It depletes the body of many essential nutrients such as all the B vitamins, especially B1, B2, B3,B6, B12, folic acid, vitamins C and K, zinc, magnesium and potassium. It can hamper the liver’s ability to process fat. It can lead to liver toxicity and disease. The high sugar content of alcoholic drinks can lead to hypoglycemia and predispose to diabetes. Drinking alcohol regularly can lead to its dependence. Drinking alcohol damages the liver, kidneys, and lungs
.
Alcohol consumption has previously been linked to a reduced bone mineral density (BMD), or osteoporosis, and increases the risk of fractures especially since  bone fractures can be the result of falls, and   one in three adults over 65 will experience a fall each year, this is a serious issue. And too much booze can cause people to age prematurely. It impairs your driving now too no matter how old you are.  Some of the wider known effects of alcohol include diminished performance, mental impairment, possible addiction, diabetes and liver disease. Now  there   a very few people, though, who can  have one small drink  too.. Yes too many have ended up dying from alcohol abuse, and as well there are those whose alcoholism led them to stop taking care of themselves.  Alcoholism certainly can increase the risk of many different diseases occurring, especially as an individual grows older, and most of   the negative effects are irreversible as well.
 .
“As alcohol is a by-product of yeast digestion, it can have an irritating effect on the lining of the stomach and gradually weaken the kidneys and liver, leading to serious health problems and can prove fatal in extreme cases. When the stomach is weakened it becomes less efficient at digesting food, which inevitably interferes with a healthy metabolism and positive weight loss. Also, after alcohol is consumed it is then the first energy supply to be used up by your body when combined with carbohydrates, proteins and fats, which postpone the fat-burning process. As a result this can lead to greater fat storage, meaning that whenever you drink you will not be burning away your fat stores in the near future. Another shocking fact is that alcohol supplies almost twice as many calories as proteins and carbohydrates, seven calories per gram! And as all of these extra calories you are getting from alcohol contain zero nutrients, they accelerate fat storage while also having a negative effect on a healthy metabolism.”
.
 Now every drop of alcohol you drink, every bad drug you take, kills your brain cell, and you become more and more brain dead.. retarded and Recent medical studies also do indicate that young Men who take marijuana, drugs are also twice as likely to get testicular cancer next before the age of 35 even
 .
Statistics which show an increase of in the number of people   binge drinking, getting drunk  and that the statistics also show that we still have a long way to deal with this major problem. 81% of people who choose to drink are still exceeding the recommended daily limits. The cost of alcohol misuse to our society is very real. In just over 10 years, there has been a startling 86% increase in the numbers of people dying due to alcohol related harm. The harsh reality is that although alcohol misuse is known to be damaging and harmful to health and well-being, many people still drink to excess. This must change,
 .
If you drink 2 martinis at lunch time or supper time  for a start  you are definitely an alcoholic. Now besides the negative effect of alcohol in the private sector they do not booze it up as much as our civil and public servants, politicians  have and do for sure. Politicians, civil and there  Public servants Pigging out, living high on the hog, or getting drunk, and patronistic hiring practices, are clearly an unacceptable abuse.
.
 “One of the risks to seniors of drinking alcohol is that as human bodies age, they lose muscle mass and their body functions slow down, meaning it takes less alcohol for them to become more intoxicated or suffer other ill effects, such as bone loss or cerebral atrophy.  Another problem  that alcohol often  interacts negatively with medication, which older people too often are be taking a significant amount of, depending on their health.” Alcohol may seriously increase your risk of health problems and even seriously now damage your heart.  Although some would say it may offer some very marginal health benefits,  for your heart. Are you willing to take the risks  of bad health associated with the consumption of alcohol still then?

Alcohol consumption is still one of Canada’s biggest problem

inluded (1)

Alcohol is a poison that is detrimental to one’s health and all persons who take bad drugs and alcohol suffer undeniably irreversible brain damage, death of brain cells, become more and more mentally  retarded 
.
Poison is a good choice of words, particularly when the substance is in the hands of young people who often think themselves immune from the dangers around them Drinking even one alcoholic beverage while soaking in the sun can increases skin cancer risk by 20 percent while drinking more than four glasses increases this risk by 55 percent, a new study finds . It’s estimated that  roughly 13% of those watching the  watching Super Bowl  will consume alcoholic beverages. Too many deaths are also  linked to energy drinks being mixed with alcohol. This is a dangerous combination . And it’s just a matter of time before new regulations start to surface here too.  Unfortunately, the vast majority of people impaired by these products are young, often those not yet of legal drinking age. They mix it with juices and stimulant drinks that enhance the poisonous effects. According to the American Cancer Society, cancers linked to alcohol use include mouth, throat, voice box, esophagus, liver, colon and rectum, breasts, and even pancreatic cancer. For each of these cancers, the risk increases with the amount of alcohol consumed.
.
Heavy drinking can cause cancer, heart disease, stroke, liver failure and other diseases, and drinkers are more likely to die in acccidents or to be murdered. And people who drink and smoke together raise their serious health disease risk even more. 
.
Alcohol is still an  ‘important  cause’  of premature death .  Overall, most deaths were due to liver disease (63 per cent) and neuropsychiatric disorders (32 per cent). Excessive alcohol use can cause or exacerbate disorders such as alcohol dependence syndrome, depression, anxiety and psychotic episodes.  In Canada, the U.S., Argentina and Costa Rica, Cuba, the highest mortality rates were seen among those aged 50 to 69  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/01/04/the-problem-of-doing-your-own-thing/
.

Even light and moderate drinking – up to one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men – could increase the risk of cancer, say researchers.

For women, the researchers observed, the risk of alcohol-related cancers – mainly breast cancer – increased even after one alcoholic drink a day One alcoholic drink a day is enough to increase a woman’s risk of breast cancer,

All people with a family history of cancer should also consider reducing their intake to below recommended limits or even abstaining altogether, “given the now well-established link between moderate drinking and alcohol-related cancers.”

The risks

  • Alcohol is linked to an increased risk of mouth, throat, gullet, bowel, liver and breast cancer
  • Smoking and drinking together further increases cancer risk
  • All types of alcohol increase cancer risk
  • The more you drink, the higher the risk
  • Cutting down on alcohol can reduce cancer risk

One in two people who smoke will die of a smoking related illness…

People can spend 20 years drinking alcohol and not feel any of the effects this is doing to them. Eventually you reap what you sowed and the damage  shows up.

.

Pancreatitis – Alcohol is the second highest cause of pancreatitis. This is an inflammation of your pancreas, an organ that makes enzymes for digestion, and causes pain just below your ribs. If you’ve overdone it you may feel this pain for a few days. In some cases it can become severe and persistent. This is called acute pancreatitis and can be life threatening.

.

Liver disease is the term used to describe damage to the liver and there are two types. Acute is when liver problems develop over a few months and chronic is damage over a number of years.

.

 Scientists are not sure exactly why drinking too much alcohol can damage your liver but the reasons include:

  1. Oxidative stress. When our liver tries to break down alcohol, the resulting chemical reaction  can damage its cells. This damage  can lead to inflammation and scarring as the liver tries to repair itself.
  2. Toxins in gut bacteria. Alcohol can damage our intestine which lets toxins from our gut bacteria get into the liver. These toxins can also lead to inflammation and scarring.

.

Early symptoms of liver disease can include:

  • fatigue
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • abdominal pains 

.

And liver damage symptoms   can include  bleeding in the gut

.

Diabetes – People who drink  beer, alcohol are often overweight – and as a result, can go on to develop diabetes

A sobering new study  finds that alcohol consumption in American states rises as the population’s politics becomes more liberal.The study shows a direct correlation between political beliefs and the demand for alcohol. The study compares sales of alcoholic beverages against the political leanings of a state’s members of Congress, as ranked by liberal organizations Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) and the AFL-CIO Committee on Political Education (COPE).The research reveals that states with more liberal representatives like Nevada tend to consume up to three times more alcohol per head than more politically conservative states like Arkansas and Utah

Canadian politicians and cops do like to booze.. 70 percent of Canadians drink alcohol, 15 percent Canadians are alcoholic, binge drinkers so of course alcohol is associated now with politics, Christian politicians as well. Alcohol is more dangerous than illegal drugs like heroin and crack cocaine, according to a new study. Heroin, crack cocaine and methamphetamine, or crystal meth, were the most lethal to individuals. When considering their wider social effects, alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine were the deadliest. But overall, alcohol outranked all other substances, followed by heroin and crack cocaine. Experts said alcohol scored so high because it is so widely used and has devastating consequences not only for drinkers but for those around them. When drunk in excess, alcohol damages nearly all organ systems. It is also connected to higher death rates and is involved in a greater percentage of crime than most other drugs, including heroin. All governments should consider more education programs and raising the price of alcohol so it isn’t as widely available.   
.
“What governments decide is illegal is not always based on science,”  for monetary considerations about revenue and taxation, like those garnered from the alcohol and tobacco industries, may influence decisions about which substances to regulate or outlaw. “Drugs that are legal cause at least as much damage, if not more, than drugs that are illicit,”   
.
IN ONE YEAR 60% of fatally injured drivers in Canada had a positive reading for blood alcohol and 160,000 people were convicted of impaired   driving .  IMPAIRED DRIVING CONVICTIONS ARE MAINLY ENFORCED 2 MONTHS OF THE YEAR FIRSTLY, AND ARE NOT DONE THE WHOLE YEAR.  generally alcohol-related driving offences account for approximately 25% of all Criminal Code prosecutions. ” If you drink and drive, it’s everybody’s business” still. In an average year in Canada, impaired driving killed 1,212 persons, injured 71,532, and caused damage to 236,375 vehicles, translating into 1,010 fatal crashes, 48,890 injury-only crashes and 155,510 property-damage only (PDO) crashes, totaling an average of 205,410 crashes in all. In turn, on average, this cost Canadians between $1.90 billion (Real Dollar Estimate model) and $11.28 billion (Willingness to Pay model) dollars, depending on the costing model and assumptions used. To put this another way, that represents a cost of between about $59.00 and $341.00 per Canadian. EXCLUDING THE EXTRA COSTS FOR INSURANCE NOW TOO..

Undeniably every drop of alcohol you drink, every bad drug you take, kills your brain cell, and you become more and more brain dead.. retarded and Recent medical studies also do indicate that young Men who take marijuana, drugs are also twice as likely to get testicular cancer next before the age of 35 even
.
Ever notice that if you watch the movies or the TV they give you a really lying, distorted image of alcohol drinkers where they are all smiling, happy faces too.. unlike the real taverns, bar scenes ehh.. where people cause trouble, are depressed, etc.,,   Drinking alcohol cause permanent brain damage, it also causes a significant deterioration of one’s mental capabilities, deterioration of one’s inter personal relationship skills, it also causes more car accidents than speeding or not having adequate winter tires, it also reduces significantly one’s work productivity as well undeniably too. It has ruined many families as well. There are about 5,000 alcohol-related crashes in B.C., Canada  every year, causing about 155 deaths and 3,000 injuries, according to the Insurance Corp. of B.C. – ICBC’s website.In BC alcohol revenues provide the government with $1 billion annually.
.
Provincial Governments, cops too  do not want to reduce gambling or alcohol consumption for it is a great money maker for them, and too many Canadian politicians and cops do like to booze..   But health and enforcement costs related to alcohol were $57 million higher than revenue generated by alcohol sales. Alcohol consumption has increased almost twice as much in British Columbia as it has in the rest of the country, according to a new study.
.
Researchers at the University of Victoria Centre for Addictions Research say British Columbians’ alcohol consumption has risen 16 per cent since 1998. That’s almost twice the nine per cent increase seen in the rest of Canada. and if that is true now there should be twice as much arrests for drunk driving and twice as much prison incarceration for drunk driving too? is there or why not? Kind of foolish encouraging people to become alcoholics at taxpayers expense, for while a few corporations will get richer in the process.
.
Also a review of B.C. accidents from 1999 to 2003 showed that nearly a third of such impaired drivers faced more drunk driving charges, even after they killed or maimed others in 84 per cent of the initial accidents.“Follow-up over a 4.5 year period indicated that 30.7 per cent of the injured impaired drivers were engaged in subsequent impaired driving, notwithstanding that they injured or killed someone in more than 84 per cent of initial crashes. These studies suggest that our emergency departments may have become safe havens for the worst drinking drivers, those drivers who are involved in fatal or personal injury crashes. They recover, get out of hospital, drive drunk again, and escape prosecution and conviction. It doesn’t take them long which is exactly why the conviction rate has to go up. There needs to be more intervention to get them off the roads,” Booze, gambling revenues now worth more than the oil- gas royalties to Alberta  government all thanks to a past  alcoholic premier there.

PEOPLE WHO TAKE DRUGS, ALCOHOL TEND ALSO TO CHEAT, LIE, STEAL.INDULGE IN PORN, COMMIT ADULTERY.. AS THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A LITTLE BIT PREGNANT HERE TOO..
.
About those self centered, clearly self oriented, selfish, immoral weasels who with the help of ostriches, snakes do  try to falsely continue to justify their immoral acts of drunkenness.. even while they themselves escalated  their hurts upon others and have also increased the  taxpayers costs, I do not care to listen to their lies, false justifications distortions over the reality. The reality is that innocent people do suffer too often as a result of the alcoholic drunks and they the drunks wrongfully continue to bring a vast amount of pain, suffering to others.   Drunk drivers   hurt others.. There’s just no cure for drunks except Jesus.  I bet he’s a repeat offender.  There is no need to send it to court. Merely Ban the idiot from driving for the next 100 years and throw him in jail for five years. If proven to be impaired, the driver will be without insurance. they also will sue him to recover their losses, garnish his wages and put a lien on his house and anything else he owns. But he or she will continue likely to drink and drive. Alcoholism is not just too often a supposed sickness but it is violence, and murder..
.
Now about the police rightfully going after drunks all year, not just mainly the car speeders.. Oh I forgot the police are too often drunks themselves, and drink and drive too.. Alcoholics do not need a reason or a season to get drunk,  on the job or off the job, including many civil and public servants now too, for they do it all year. They also still  need to be jailed, fired and not rather neglected.
 .
We already know that the first alcoholic drink too can be deadly to an alcoholic next..  And Regular alcohol or marijuana use takes a worse toll on the teenage brain than thought . 
DRUNKS
It seems that 70 percent of the adults drink alcohol in Canada too but 100 percent of them claim to be non alcoholics? civil and public servants included, and where do all of the many drunk drivers, alcoholics come from now too?
.
We need to also stop electing liars and alcoholics too.. be for certain there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, and that there is a direct correlation between the people who are heavy alcohol users.. that they are the same persons who will also take bad drugs… and they will also be the same persons who also now do cheat , lie, steal, commit tax evasions.. as they have no solid morality.  It seems we have too many cheats, thieves, liars, alcoholics, adulterers for cops and for politicians, civil and public servants  still in Canada.. for basically there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, it seems you are basically honest or merely another crook…

A new study suggests Canadians are thirstier than ever as sales of wine, beer  and spirits are on track to setting a record high. Increasing indulgence  has been a trend all year long with Canadians spending close to half a billion  dollars more on alcohol in the first nine months of 2012 than in 2011, and if this growth holds up through the holiday season, that would set the stage for  record retail sales of more than $19 billion in 2012. Whether it is family get-togethers,  holiday parties or just drinking to stay warm, liquor sales typically surge by  over 40 per cent of the monthly average in December, the study  suggests. By comparison, despite the hordes of people descending on malls  to purchase gifts for their loved ones, the retail sector only rises by 15-20  per cent in December.  Alcohol sales on pace to high record high: report  Canada becoming a nation of alcoholics
.
Drink Alcohol and Die or Kill is fast becoming Canada’s preoccupation, main goal, slogan.. The problem with the Police or Politicians consuming alcohol, is that alcohol not only makes you a mental retard cause it does now kills your brain cell, alcohol also kills your emotions of compassion, and  reasoning ability now as well..Alcohol and alcoholics the unacceptable main cause of vehicular  accidents, domestic violence, and so many other ills…It is not the rapists, drunk drivers that mostly  fill the courts calendars, docks it is mostly the revenue generating traffic tickets.. if the government wants to get tough on crime, as it purports, it should go after the real criminals. Drunk, impaired drivers too.  DRUNK DRIVING  KILLS AT LEAST 5 TIMES MORE PERSONS OVER SPEEDING FIRSTLY . 

 .

 
Now we know that more people have accident due to road rage, impaired driving, driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol  over speeding too and we still do need to review how much time and resources do the police deal with that speeding and neglect the drunk drivers firstly? “An Australian study estimates that about half of all traffic accidents in Australia may be due to road rage and most of the others related to alcohol, impaired driving and yet the police falsely tend to pursue revenue generating speeding traffic tickets still and why?   Road rage is a relatively serious act; it can  be seen as a violation of human and property rights , an endangerment of  other’s personal well being, security. Women tend to be a higher risk for drunk driving than men. Why you might ask? It is due to the fact that women tend to have more passengers in the car or are more likely to be distracted or have small children present. Men are more likely to be driving alone or less distracted by what is going on around them
 .
Canadians are spending hundreds of millions of dollars every year self-medicating their insomnia with alcohol, a  study suggests alcohol has a very negative effect on your sleep. It deprives you of any of the deep stages of sleep“We were very surprised to see that so many people use alcohol as a way to promote sleep, particularly because it has more detrimental than beneficial effects on sleep,” Overall, eight per cent of the sample reported using alcohol as a sleep aid. Among people with insomnia, 28 per cent reported self-medicating with alcohol. “We know insomnia is a very prevalent problem, it has a very negative impact on people’s quality of SLEEP: it’s 10 times more costly not to treat insomnia because of its impact on absenteeism from work and reduced productivity than it is to treat it, why aren’t we treating it more often?” Part of the problem is that so few people seek help. Now some people take sleeping pills, that can also affect their brain cells negatively “but there are many more who self-medicate with over-the-counter products or, worse, with alcohol.” The   money spent on the use of booze as a sleep aid far exceeds costs associated with visits to doctors and the use of prescription pills and over-the-counter products from antihistamines to herbal teas.

Most headlines about moderate alcohol consumption are still misleading ones —such as a drink or two a day is good for your heart, your soul, and may even extend your lifespan! But a  new study finds that regularly consuming even moderate amounts of alcohol can cause a decrease in brain plasticity, or the brain’s ability to generate new cells.  It rather kills even existing brain cells.. 
.
Once the alcohol is absorbed into the tissue, it affects your mind and body.  Blood alcohol concentration can rise up to 20 minutes after having a drink. After alcohol is absorbed it leaves the body in three ways: the kidneys, lungs, and liver. Alcohol is not a stimulant, it is actually a sedative-depressant of the central nervous-system, it is capable of rupturing blood capillaries and veins, it does not warm you up; in fact it makes you colder by increasing perspiration and causing body heat loss, it damages the branched end of nerve cells that bring messages into the cell, causing disruptions to brain function. It depletes the body of many essential nutrients such as all the B vitamins, especially B1, B2, B3,B6, B12, folic acid, vitamins C and K, zinc, magnesium and potassium. It can hamper the liver’s ability to process fat. It can lead to liver toxicity and disease. The high sugar content of alcoholic drinks can lead to hypoglycemia and predispose to diabetes. Drinking alcohol regularly can lead to its dependence. Drinking alcohol damages the liver, kidneys, and lungs
.
Alcohol consumption has previously been linked to a reduced bone mineral density (BMD), or osteoporosis, and increases the risk of fractures especially since  bone fractures can be the result of falls, and   one in three adults over 65 will experience a fall each year, this is a serious issue. And too much booze can cause people to age prematurely. It impairs your driving now too no matter how old you are.  Some of the wider known effects of alcohol include diminished performance, mental impairment, possible addiction, diabetes and liver disease. Now  there   a very few people, though, who can  have one small drink  too.. Yes too many have ended up dying from alcohol abuse, and as well there are those whose alcoholism led them to stop taking care of themselves.  Alcoholism certainly can increase the risk of many different diseases occurring, especially as an individual grows older, and most of   the negative effects are irreversible as well.
.
“As alcohol is a by-product of yeast digestion, it can have an irritating effect on the lining of the stomach and gradually weaken the kidneys and liver, leading to serious health problems and can prove fatal in extreme cases. When the stomach is weakened it becomes less efficient at digesting food, which inevitably interferes with a healthy metabolism and positive weight loss. Also, after alcohol is consumed it is then the first energy supply to be used up by your body when combined with carbohydrates, proteins and fats, which postpone the fat-burning process. As a result this can lead to greater fat storage, meaning that whenever you drink you will not be burning away your fat stores in the near future. Another shocking fact is that alcohol supplies almost twice as many calories as proteins and carbohydrates, seven calories per gram! And as all of these extra calories you are getting from alcohol contain zero nutrients, they accelerate fat storage while also having a negative effect on a healthy metabolism.”

PEOPLE WHO TAKE DRUGS, ALCOHOL TEND ALSO TO CHEAT, LIE, STEAL.INDULGE IN PORN, COMMIT ADULTERY.. AS THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A LITTLE BIT PREGNANT HERE TOO..
.
A new study suggests Canadians are thirstier than ever as sales of wine, beer  and spirits are on track to setting a record high. Increasing indulgence  has been a trend all year long with Canadians spending close to half a billion  dollars more on alcohol in the first nine months of 2012 than in 2011, and if this growth holds up through the holiday season, that would set the stage for  record retail sales of more than $19 billion in 2012. Whether it is family get-togethers,  holiday parties or just drinking to stay warm, liquor sales typically surge by  over 40 per cent of the monthly average in December, the study  suggests. By comparison, despite the hordes of people descending on malls  to purchase gifts for their loved ones, the retail sector only rises by 15-20  per cent in December.    Alcohol sales on pace to high record high: report  Canada becoming a nation of alcoholics

There are two kinds of ‘wine’ in the Bible, Fermented and unfermented.”  You do not  have to worry about getting drunk, being an alcoholic next to have heart health benefits..

Even moderate alcohol drinking raises cancer death risk: study   Alcohol is more dangerous than illegal drugs like heroin and crack cocaine, according to a new study. Heroin, crack cocaine and methamphetamine, or crystal meth, were the most lethal to individuals. When considering their wider social effects, alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine were the deadliest. But overall, alcohol outranked all other substances, followed by heroin and crack cocaine. Experts said alcohol scored so high because it is so widely used and has devastating consequences not only for drinkers but for those around them. When drunk in excess, alcohol damages nearly all organ systems. It is also connected to higher death rates and is involved in a greater percentage of crime than most other drugs, including heroin. Alcohol, drugs common in fatal crashes: study- More than half of US drivers killed in car accidents had alcohol or drugs in their system at the time of the crash, according to a study.
.
And alcohol is a “major” contributor to cancer deaths in the United States, even when consumed in small amounts. ‘The risk of developing breast cancer from drinking even small amounts of alcohol is being ignored by women with thousands now needlessly dying every year. Less than two drinks a day can increase the risk of developing cancer, doctors have warned, after finding that even moderate consumption was linked to almost a third of alcohol-related cancers.
.
The majority of deaths due to alcohol consumption seemed to occur among people who consumed more than three  alcoholic drinks a day, but those who consumed 1.5 beverages daily may account  for up to a third of those deaths, the researchers found
.
Leaders who boast now of their consuming alcoholic beverages are encouraging others to next become alcoholics, the teenagers too… what a bad example of their leadership skills too.
.
More than 200 different conditions are linked to alcohol consumption. “These include not only well-known outcomes of drinking such as liver cirrhosis or traffic accidents, but also several types of cancer, such as female breast cancer,”
.
Most Evangelical Christians believe real Christians do not drink Alcohol..In reality  some professing Christians, Christian leaders still do  FALSELY  drink alcohol. 
.
16    This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17    For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.  18    But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19    Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20    Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21    Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.  22    But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,  23    Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24    And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25    If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26    Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.  (Gal. 5:19-26).
.
9    Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10    Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.  . (1 Cor. 6:9-10, )

Inhibitions are the first to be suppressed when alcohol is consumed, which results in talking more, becoming disorderly and acting unwisely. Time is the only way to rid the body of alcohol after it has been consumed—approximately one hour per ounce of alcohol.
.
As little as one or two drinks can adversely affect a driver’s judgment and reaction time.
.
Drunkenness (and/or alcoholism) is a very serious problem in our society. The statistics associated with drinking alcohol are both alarming and disturbing, especially from a Christian point of view:
.
It is apparent that a wide variety of temporal problems stem from drinking alcohol, as just shown. The above cited dangers and sufferings for the drunk, however, are inconsequential and almost not even worth mentioning compared to the greatest danger in the entire universe—that of being thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, which is forever.
.
Furthermore, there is no such thing as a Christian alcoholic since drunkards will not inherit the kingdom of God.
.
Jesus similarly taught about drunkenness:
But suppose the servant says to himself, “My master is taking a long time in coming,” and he then begins to beat the menservants and maidservants and to eat and drink and get drunk. The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers (Luke 12:45, 46).
.
The physical dangers of alcohol consumption include:
● Liver damage especially, but also brain, heart, bone marrow and gastrointestinal tract. Such can lead to cancer, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack, cirrhosis, nerve problems, etc. When the liver is affected nutrition is also adversely impacted which will hurt the entire body.
● Becoming overweight. One glass of wine daily can add 10 pounds a year to your weight.;

Four More Facts About Drunkenness
(1) It leads to debauchery:
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit (Eph. 5:18).
(2) It brings woe, sorrow, strife, complaints, needless bruises and bloodshot eyes:
Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has strife? Who has complaints? Who has needless bruises? Who has bloodshot eyes? Those who linger over wine, who go to sample bowls of mixed wine. Do not gaze at wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup, when it goes down smoothly! In the end it bites like a snake and poisons like a viper. Your eyes will see strange sights and your mind imagine confusing things. You will be like one sleeping on the high seas, lying on top of the rigging. “They hit me,” you will say, “but I’m not hurt! They beat me, but I don’t feel it!  When will I wake up so I can find another drink?” (Prov. 23:29-35)
(3) It reveals those who do get drunk as unwise:
Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise (Prov. 20:1).
(4) It disqualifies a person from spiritual leadership:

(1 Tim 3:1 KJV) This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. 2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; 3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; 4  One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

.

1 Tim 3:2 Now a bishop (superintendent, overseer) must give no grounds for accusation {but} must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, circumspect {and} temperate {and} self-controlled ( Sober) ; [he must be] sensible {and} well behaved {and} dignified and lead an orderly (disciplined) life; [he must be] hospitable [showing love for and being a friend to the believers, especially strangers or foreigners, and be] a capable {and} qualified teacher,

.
Since an overseer is entrusted with God’s work, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain (Titus 1:7).
.
Woe to those who rise early in the morning to run after their drinks, who stay up late at night till they are inflamed with wine. They have harps and lyres at their banquets, tambourines and flutes and wine, but they have no regard for the deeds of the LORD, no respect for the work of his hands (Isa. 5:11,12).
.
Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature (Rom. 13:13,14).
.
It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother to fall (Rom. 14:21).
.

(1 Cor 11:28 KJV) But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

.

(Prov 3:33 KJV) The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.

.

Jesus himself had said that professing to be a Christian is not enough,

Matt 3:8 Bring forth fruit that is consistent with repentance [let your lives prove your change of heart];

Gal 5:23 Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law

Matt 7:16 You will fully recognize them by their fruits. Do people pick grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles?17 Even so, every healthy (sound) tree bears good fruit [worthy of admiration], but the sickly (decaying, worthless) tree bears bad (worthless) fruit. 18 A good (healthy) tree cannot bear bad (worthless) fruit, nor can a bad (diseased) tree bear excellent fruit [worthy of admiration]. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire. 20 Therefore, you will fully know them by their fruits.

.

Matthew 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
.
Mark 10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
.
Hebrews 3:11 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest
.
1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor… idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Taking a Nazarite vow makes one a true Nazarite. A Nazarite should also abstain from strong drink (wine containing alcohol). It is possible for Jesus to have been a Nazarite, due to the fact that he did abstain from drinking strong drink (wine containing alcohol). , which he would have to do in order to keep an Nazarite vow and he also would be not to put a razor to his head. Do Jesus would have long hair. then Elizabeth, John the Baptist’s mother was cautioned by an angel, as was Samson’s mother told to abstain from certain dietary no-no’s namely strong fermented grape juice and unclean meats. During the Jewish wedding, He Jesus had turned water into wine (pure grape juice-without fermentation). Yes we can be assured the Jesus still never ever consumed any alcohol even if Jesus did make the best wine in those days but it was a pure fresh grape juice , non alcoholic, it was unfermented,.

.
1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

.. the latest studies show you can get almost all the same benefits from grape juice. The reason Purple grape juice contains the same powerful disease fighting antioxidants, called flavonoids, that are believed to give wine many of its heart friendly benefits. .. but watch the sugar content or your juice supplier or you  might get diabetes.. It seems that Jesus and the Apostles knew the benefits of grape juice, when they drank new wine, the unfermented wine..
.
“Do not drink wine nor strong drink, …when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations: And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;”  (Leviticus 10:9,10)(Isa 28:1 KJV)  Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine! (Eph 5:18 KJV)  And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
.
(Gal 5:19 KJV)  Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20   Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21   Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 
.
(Col 3:5 KJV)  Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6   For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

Canada’s top police force the RCMP still too often covers up the sins of it’s own cops.

  
You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors,  police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers, bad PERSONS   who STILL DO say that ALL OF  bad people, INCLUDING the ALCOHOLICS, the bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. The RCMP maximum 10 days punishment is always absurd, permanent dismissal is what is always needed with the bad cops and their clearly bad superiors who had managed and hired them too.. Bad solicitor generals as well should be fired ASAP.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/11/26/canadas-justice-reviews-are-still-a-big-farce/

NOW WHY IS IT BAD PEOPLE DO NOT CHANGE NEXT BESIDE THE FACT THEY LIKE TO DO BAD THINGS, IT IS ALSO CAUSE THEY FALSELY  REFUSE TO ADMIT THE THINGS THEY DO ARE BAD.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2015/04/22/one-of-the-most-read-topics-here-is-the-subject-of-bad-police-officers-in-Canada/
REGINA – Questions are being raised about why an RCMP sergeant in Saskatchewan who rolled his vehicle after having at least five alcoholic drinks was not charged with impaired driving. Sgt. Warren Gherasim was commander of the detachment in Cut Knife, about 170 kilometres west of Saskatoon, when, on May 15, 2006, he conducted himself “in a disgraceful manner that brings discredit on the force” by drinking and driving, says a decision by an RCMP adjudication board. “Sergeant Gherasim’s admission, the (indications) of impairment and the evidence of the odour of alcohol tip the balance in favour of finding that some level of alcohol impairment existed sufficient to contribute to the accident,” the board said in its ruling dated March 20, 2008. “Six different members attended the accident scene or Sgt. Gherasim’s residence, all but one subordinate to him in rank and four serving under him at Cut Knife. Several of these noted the odour of alcohol. “For a detachment commander, one of whose roles is to set an example, to drink enough and drive so that alcohol played a role in a subsequent accident, regardless of the fact that the circumstances were such that no breath demand was made, is disgraceful, and brings discredit on the force.” The adjudication report noted that Gherasim worked his scheduled shift on the day in question and drank two beers with a colleague while golfing. The pair stopped later at the colleague’s house and Gherasim had another beer. After watching a baseball game together, he had a “couple of drinks.” Gherasim has since apologized for his behaviour and been transferred to a different detachment, where he is handling administrative duties. He was given a reprimand, docked eight days’ pay and taken out of the Officer Candidate program. He was also stripped of the Order of Merit of Police Forces he received in 2006 from the Governor General for his work in community-based policing in the Northwest Territories and for fugitive investigations across the country.  Bill Pitt, an Edmonton-based criminologist, law enforcement instructor and former Mountie, called the incident “another nail in the coffin” for the RCMP. “This is not a standard of policing that Canadians should have. Does it occur? Yeah, you bet it does.” Pitt said charges weren’t laid because “people were looking for their careers, and properly so because they wouldn’t have had one had they brought a sergeant up on impaired driving charges.”http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100727/national/cop_loses_award

Another RCMP officer should face impaired driving charges Now, today. 

B.C. RCMP officer is facing possible impaired driving charges after she was stopped on suspicion of drunk driving after leaving the Cascades Casino in Langley. Canada clearly has two standards one for the ctizens, and another one for the civil and public servants.. guess who gets all the false breaks.. a paid leave now too..

I am sure charges will be laid in a year or so as opposed joe citizen who gets charged on the spot or within the same day/ week.
I do, however know some people who have been charged and it happens on the spot. There is no investigation to see if charges are warranted. They are charged right now so why not this officer? Why not Monte? No one law for the people and another for drunk cops..
WHILE THE AVERAGE CITIZEN WOULD GET NO SUCH RESULTS
– God, it never ends.
– Our communities are under siege by these uniformed thugs!
– Sadly, we are no longer surprised.
– the wheels of justice grind slower all the time… when they grind at all.
–  Next comes a “suspension with pay”. You remember the old name for that, don’t you?
-We used to call it a paid vacation.

Clifton Purvis, a spokesman with the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team, which investigates incidents involving police, says officers were called to the home 44 Jefferson Road in the Jackson Heights neighbourhood Edmonton, Alberta, after 4 a.m. MDT to a report of shots being fired. “We have identified one individual who is deceased. That person is the spouse of the individual we have in custody,” he said. Purvis refused to name the woman or the RCMP officer but said his agency is treating the woman’s death as a homicide.  But they have two young sons and had lived in the neighborhood for about a year.  Finally  day after his wife’s body was found in a southeast Edmonton home, an RCMP constable Const. Tarith Sehmbi, 36, was charged with second-degree murder in her slaying. He  will likely be suspended from his job within days as a result of the serious charge against him,  ” “The suspension will initially be with pay. That will be pending a review to consider the option of stopping the pay.” There’s no specific time frame for the review on whether to stop paying the constable’s salary. Sehmbi, who has been with the RCMP for about seven years, was working in the revenue generating traffic services division at a detachment in Stony Plain, Alta., just west of Edmonton.

EDMONTON—Alberta   Fri Jul 16 2010  The RCMP is finally requesting the public’s help in locating Travis Edward Vader, 38, as a person of interest in the disappearance of a couple Lyle McCann, 78, and Marie, 77  from St. Albert who have not been seen since they left home July 3 headed to British Columbia for a camping vacation. They were driving their motor home, towing behind them a green Hyundai Tucson SUV and finally they the RCMP  found the couple’s SUV . Two days after the motorhome was found burning in dense bush near Edson, 200 kilometres west of Edmonton. Assistant RCMP Commissioner Peter Hourihan   admitted they the RCMP had botched the early stages of the investigation into the case . One of the officers involved has been ordered out of the field and onto desk duty. “A couple of mistakes have been made, I acknowledge that,” Hourihan said  at a news conference at K Division headquarters. The McCanns now have been missing for almost two weeks and the investigation has seen the RCMP come under criticism for failing to conduct due diligence and follow obvious leads. Now the investigation went off the rails after the RCMP went to the burning motorhome. They found the McCanns’ registration papers in the camper and called the McCann home, but abandoned the chase when there was no answer and due diligence was not served and  a RCMP member asa direct result has been placed on administrative duties. So what!!! “The case took another bizarre turn on Tuesday after the McCann’s son, Bret, made a public plea on TV for the public to call in tips on the stolen SUV. Within hours Diana Bjorklund and her father Evert went to the local RCMP detachment in Prince George B.C., 450 kilometres west of Edson, to report seeing the SUV in the community a few days earlier. But Diana Bjorklund told CBC Radio on Thursday that the civilian staffer at the counter didn’t ask for her name and phone number and dismissed her information out of hand because the sighting was already days old. Mounties were then forced to issue a public plea for Bjorklund to come back. Hourihan said that has happened and police are acting upon the information.” The McCanns are paying for systemic breakdowns in RCMP rural policing due to staffing shortages, a slew of green recruits, and a culture of information hoarding rather than sharing.  http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/article/836877–hunt-on-for-fugitive-as-suv-of-missing-alberta-couple-found?bn=1

Off-duty RCMP officer arrested for River Heights break-in CTV.ca –  An off-duty RCMP officer was arrested for allegedly breaking into a River Heights home while intoxicated on Thursday, said Winnipeg police. An investigation determined that a suspect in an intoxicated state broke in through the front door to a stranger’s residence in River Heights and woke up a person inside, said officers. A neighbour told CTV News the suspect fell asleep on a couch inside the home. The neighbour said the suspect believed he was at a hotel and even left his shoes at the door before falling asleep on the couch. Winnipeg police responded and took the suspect into custody.  The 30-year-old male suspect faces a charge for forcible entry and has been released on a court appearance notice. His name has not been released.

OTTAWA (CBC) – Gatineau police ended a 10-hour standoff Monday morning without making an arrest.  Police said they found the suspect of a weekend robbery at a residence on Ste-Rédempteur Street and that he refused to surrender. They later returned with a warrant to search the residence but chose not to enter because of the suspect’s history. Instead, police erected a security cordon and closed off Ste-Redempteur between Allard and Ste. Etienne streets until about 11 a.m., at which time they ended the operation without making an arrest. A spokesman said police decided instead to apprehend the man at a later date, though no other reason was given. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100719/canada/canada_ottawa_ottawa_gatineau_stand_off Unlike the RCMP the police hesitated to kill him.. 
 
Man shot by RCMP was holding umbrella  The Canadian Press – Mon Jul 19, 7:30 PM
 .
The top investigating body The RCMP itself now becomes really  dumb , stupid when presenting any information about it’s own bad cops. “No information presently available at the present”, “further information will be forthcoming when the charges are actually laid, “is the  too typical perverse RCMP public relationship spins, cover ups now as well. Reality is that too often you cannot trust the RCMP now to do it’s job when needed still.
 .
Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.  
 .
 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. Too many police officers are now too often guilty of their most serious neglect of public trust and their duty. The related truth is that neither an independent police investigation, a new police commissioner,  a promised provincial or federal investigation, or just more politicians promises too often still   will not bring the much needed justice. All of the governments can prohibit the initial and further employment of any known racists for any jobs, and can  punish them for their racists acts, views. Police managers continue to promise the reforming of bad cops and the bad cops keep killing, abusing  innocent persons. The possible retaining of bad  police officers is always anyway a false myth. What thus is always needed is the real  the dismissal, criminal prosecution, of the guilty cops. So where is it? Speeding is not the main cause of car accidents, impaired driving is, but too many cops are alcoholics it seems who wrongfully do sympathize with drunks and as a result do not arrest drunks all year
 .
Speeding is not the main cause of car accidents, impaired driving is, but too many cops are alcoholics it seems who wrongfully do sympathize with drunks and as a result do not arrest drunks all year.. “Of the 645 sexual assaults that were reported to our service in 2009, more than 40 per cent were alcohol-facilitated sexual assaults,” A sexual assault is never the fault of the victim. She said no means no the first time, and another drink can’t change that.“ We need people to understand that consent cannot be given if the person is impaired by alcohol: If they’re passed out, if they’re unconscious, if they’re sleeping,”  Supt. Danielle Campbell,   head of the Edmonton Police Criminal Investigations Division. It seems most alcohol-facilitated sexual assault doesn’t seem to be about miscommunication, or misconceptions of consent.  Rather, it is about men who use alcohol to incapacitate women for the purpose of raping them, and who do it over and over again like they know what they ‘re doing and are doing it on purpose…  and the police use this approach too?
Tax payer’s money abuses, false expense account statements, stealing, tax evasions,   obstruction of justice, cheating, lying,  drunkenness, impaired driving, pornography,  Adultery, VERBAL, PHYSICAL ABUSES, are all ESPECIALLY unacceptable for any civil and public servants. It is a clearly established fact with good basis as to why our Canadian leaders, politicians, police, military, public and civil servants  who are always to be exemplary are even personally are to held to a higher standard, accountability in reality.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/07/20/canadas-police-forces/
 .
Hypocritical Police and Conservatives, Liberals want more policing over the Canadian citizens, the same persons who wrongfully firstly do not want to give us a detailed list, copy of all of their own expense accounts  and do note that too. Let the police rightfully start with the rightful better policing of themselves  and next deal  first with  our too often stealing, crooked, lying politicians, civil and public servants who also do steal  and now first also go after all the alcoholics who abuse their spouses, drive impaired … the cops included..  deal first with all all of  of   the persons who abuse any seniors.. and we now do need more cops rather in the hospitals arresting also all of  the bad Health Ministers, bad  doctors and bad nurses who fail to provide adequate medical aid to seniors, others etc
 
 .
While a few hundred persons die from car accidents Meanwhile thousands of persons die from medical errors, hospital acquired sicknesses but no  police give the medical personnel any tickets ehh I got news for you Doctors are sinners like everyone else and like the police the doctor’s masturbating society tends to support it’s own also  too often..

in regard to toughest impaired-driving laws in the country

 

New laws target drinking drivers Victoria Times Colonist -Victoria, BC – The BC government moved Tuesday to establish what it says are the toughest impaired-driving laws in the country. Under legislation that critics say will “decriminalize” drunk driving, police will have new discretion to immediately ban a person from driving and impose a fine — even if their blood-alcohol level doesn’t break any criminal laws. People who blow a “warn” on a roadside screening device will face a $200 fine and a three-day driving ban. At present, they would only receive a 24-hour suspension for registering a blood-alcohol level between .05 and .08 per cent, the level at which it becomes a criminal offence to get behind the wheel. The new penalties escalate to a $300 fine and a seven-day ban for the second “warn” in five years, and $400 and a 30-day ban for the third.  Those drivers who “fail” a roadside test because their blood-alcohol level is over .08 could now receive an immediate 90-day driving ban and a $500 fine in addition to any criminal charges. There is currently no administrative penalty and the driving ban doesn’t take effect for three weeks.

BC to up drunk driving costs Metro Canada – Vancouver Montreal Gazette – Global BC – News1130 – 24 Hours Vancouver
 
and why is there here too no single cohesive drunk driving law for all of Canada, not just piece meal laws in every different province? A national approach  would be much more effective than 10 provinces all trying to cut their own laws.  The federal government has been strangely quiet on this subject too. It’s time that changed. Tell them so now too.
Majority of accidents are caused by the drunk drivers firstly still. Police do not regularly, actively, year around purse them and why?  More people die from alcohol, drugs, hospital neglect, and yet more money is being paid on catching mainly the  speeders.. Police do not mind harassing still the ordinary folks with revenue generating  traffic, parking, speeding tickets though  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/06/25/we-need-more-red-light-cameras-elsewhere-too/

Dumb, really stupid Police too now on New Year’s Day

Free speech is everyone’s right now even if the bad  cops do not like it too. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/09/22/we-all-can-readily-know-that-the-rcmp-police-do-not-like-us-to-use-our-right-of-free-speech/

Montreal pedestrians hit by drunk driver on New Year’s Day   Man in critical condition after SUV veers onto sidewalk   The Gazette January  1, 2010 MONTREAL – Two pedestrians were seriously injured downtown this morning by a drunk driver. The man who was hit, 25, is reportedly in critical condition while the woman, 50, is considered stable, police said. The SUV was headed east on Ste. Catherine St. W. around 4 a.m. when the driver swerved, possibly to avoid to another vehicle. He hit another car and rolled onto the sidewalk between Crescent St. and de la Montagne St., striking the victims. The driver and passenger of the vehicle were uninjured. Police arrested the driver and brought him back to the police station for an alcohol test, which he failed. Police suspect it was the combination of alcohol, speed and weather that caused the accident. If the law was in favourofthe victims this guy would lose his license permanently and would get min 15 yrs in jail. He knew he drank, he can afford an suv but to cheap and arrogant to take a taxi. I feel sorry for the victims and I feel sorry for the JA because a simple 20 cab ride and he would never have to go through this, or use the operation neige rouge…its a free service you are a moron ”  the Gazette

Kind of foolish encouraging people to become alcoholics at taxpayers expense, for wile a few corporations will get richer in the process, the Canadian government will not, cause the costs due to job dismissals and related tax losses, Medicare cost increase, car accidents, policing, domestic violence, all associated with alcoholism is extremely costly.. No taxpayers money should ever  be used to buy alcoholics at any federal, provincial, municipal government functions. Really!  And what according to the bad RCMP spin doctors, there are only 3 alcoholic RCMP officers in all of Canada? for the rest they do not drink alcohol   or beer  but only milk, even when off duty? https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/11/11/no-rcmp-alcoholics-it-seems/

Only “Tiny number of police officers part of large drinking and driving problem   Sun Nov 9, 12:03 PM   VANCOUVER, B.C. – The numbers are staggering.  Mothers Against Drunk Driving says 75,000 people are arrested annually in Canada for drinking and driving.  There are an additional 100,000 to 150,000 24-hour suspensions handed out each year by police, said MADD chief executive officer Andy Murie.  Sometimes the people who make those arrests, the front-line police officers who try to get the drunks off the road become – albeit rarely – part of the statistics.  “You might find 10 to 15 incidents a year involving police officers,” said Murie in a recent interview from his Oakville, Ont., office.  “The thing is that with the 10 to 15, because they are police officers and they get charged with a crime, it’s news.”  Often front-page news, most recently in British Columbia.  In recent weeks, the public learned that three B.C. police officers are facing drunk-driving charges – two members of the RCMP and a third from the New Westminster police department.  One of the off-duty RCMP members was arrested for drunk driving after a Jeep collided with a motorcycle, killing a 21-year-old man in Delta, B.C.  Other high-profile cases this year across the country include an Edmonton police officer facing one count of driving with a blood alcohol level above the legal limit and five counts each of impaired driving causing bodily harm and dangerous driving causing bodily harm.  In Saskatoon, a judge will decide the fate later this month of a senior member of the Saskatoon police service charged with impaired driving.  At his trial, two arresting officers testified that Insp. Al Stickney got behind the wheel after they observed him drunkenly staggering across the street.  “This year there’s been about 10 (arrests),” said Murie. “That’s pretty normal for a year.”  ..  the number of police officers caught drinking and driving is a tiny percentage of the total  ..   Benedikt Fischer, a criminologist at the faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University, said police officers are recruited “from the human race and despite the fact we expect so, human behaviour doesn’t stop on-or off-duty.”  Fischer also believes the number of police officers who drive drunk is probably higher than the arrest statistics indicate.  Being a cop is part of a “professional or police culture” dominated by machismo and camaraderie where police officers spend a lot of time socializing with each other, said Fischer, and often it involves alcohol.  “Drinking among police officers is often quite extensive and excessive, probably more so than in other professions,” he said.  When an RCMP member in B.C. is identified as having a drinking problem, he or she gets to know Dr. Ian MacDonald, the regional health services officer for RCMP in B.C.  After an assessment, they might be referred outside the force to an independent addiction specialist.  Whether it’s determined they have a drinking problem or not, all RCMP members arrested for drinking and driving come to MacDonald’s attention and must have an assessment.  MacDonald also thinks that MADD’s numbers are low and that the number of police officers arrested for drunk driving is higher than 10 to 15.  “That strikes me as low. If you look at B.C., we might have two or three charges a year. And if B.C. is 10 per cent of the population, that would be 20 to 30 across Canada.”  Mark Berber, a lecturer in psychiatry at the University of Toronto and an assistant professor at Queen’s University, is also skeptical of the MADD figures.  “It’s surprisingly low considering the stress these guys and gals are under.”  Studies, he said, have suggested that police officers have one of the most stressful jobs and “unfortunately a small number may seek to reduce their anxiety and stress by having a drink.”  He has counselled police officers in his private practice.  “They have spoken about seeking relief from stress and through medication and also drinking,” Berber said.  RCMP members who get caught drinking and driving, in addition to the court process, must endure an internal code of conduct investigation, said RCMP spokeswoman Const. Annie Linteau.  Members appear before an adjudication board and the result could be dismissal, she said. ”  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/081109/national/police_drunk_driving

“  We only read/see about the few due to the police buddy system which will leave all but the most blatant of the cops drunk (ie involved in an accident) either being escorted home, or not even bothering to perform the breathe analysis. Do you really think the public is so stupid to believe that the police are held accountable by  their partners? I have seen this first hand and know it for truth. So MADD get off your horse and see the facts for what they really are, police covering up for police”  “  If anything, I would have expected MADD to have taken a highly reproachful attitude toward anyone in this profession (as they do to anyone in any other profession) who CHOOSE to drink and drive.  “” There is absolutely no excuse for anyone driving drunk, be they officers or not. We are all aware of the fact that it is illegal and should all be held to the same standard. As to lighter sentencing, police generally do get booted off the force after conviction? “  All alcoholics should be fired anywhere.. especially in the civil and public services.. and  no taxpayer’s money should be used to buy alcohol anywhere now still too..
 
Meanwhile after another drunken orgy the Edmonton Oilers hockey team  fight with restaurant over New Year’s Eve bill  Fri Jan 1, 6:47 PM  The management of a high-end Calgary restaurant got into a bitter dispute over New Year’s Eve bash bill racked up by members of the Edmonton Oilers team, says the fine dining owner. Maurizio Terrigno of Osteria de Medici,  said the team and staff owed $16,796.39 but paid only $12,385.45. About half of the bill is for alcohol which totalled to $8,248.  Oilers spokesman Allan Watt said the restaurant was recommended by some Calgary friends of the players and they had a prearranged meal and menu. “They received the bill which they felt was outrageous,” said Watt. “They inquired about it and they were unhappy about it and were unhappy with some of the charges. The restaurant adjusted it by $7,000,” he said. Watt said the players paid the adjusted bill and added a $1,900 tip and left the restaurant. The restaurant tried to charge for a bottle of an imported expensive brandy after one of the players took a swig straight from it. “They refused to pay for the whole bottle because they didn’t consume the whole bottle,” said Terrigno. He said there’s no way the restaurant will serve other clients from the same bottle of brandy. Terrigno said at one point he threatened to call cops, but the players eventually paid $12,385.45 http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/calsun/100101/canada/oilers_fight_with_restaurant_over_new_year_s_eve_bill

SMOKING, ALCOHOL, BAD DRUGS, BAD FOOD, LACK OF EXERCISE, STRESS & bad cops

  thecartoon-102

Now as usual next the big  liars will try to justify their pot and alcohol sins, addictions.. even by lying and saying that no one died from smoking pot.. but they have had heart attacks as a direct result.. and at least 30 percent of the car accidents are caused by impaired drugs, pot smoking driving.. for a start.. Pot brain damage like alcohol brain damage is also irreversible.. marijuana’s effects from heavy, long-term use have been linked to neuorological problems such as learning difficulty and strokes.. Alcohol’s  effects from heavy, long-term usage has also  been linked to neuorological problems such as learning difficulty, Mental retardation too.  by the way people who take pot tend to drink alcohol and commit adultery as well

Smoking marijuana results in changes in the bloodstream that may put chronic users at risk for serious cardiovascular problems such as heart attack and stroke.;Within a few minutes after smoking marijuana, the heart begins beating more rapidly and the blood pressure drops. Marijuana can cause the heart beat to increase by 20 to 50 beats per minute, and can increase even more if other drugs are used at the same time. Because of the lower blood pressure and higher heart rate, researchers found that users’ risk for a heart attack is four times higher within the first hour after smoking marijuana, compared to their general risk of heart attack when not smoking.
http://alcoholism.about.com/od/pot/a/effects.-Lya.htm

Heart attack is directly responsible for about 11% of all deaths in Canada every year. This represents half of all deaths due to coronary artery disease. In 2003, heart attack was the leading cause of death from circulatory diseases, at 48 deaths per 100,000 Canadians. Lung cancer was the leading cause of death from cancer, at 47 deaths per 100,000. Prostate cancer mortality decreased from 27 to 24 deaths per 100,000 men.

thecartoon-222

IN ONE YEAR 60% of fatally injured drivers in Canada had a positive reading for blood alcohol and 160,000 people were convicted of impaired   driving .  IMPAIRED DRIVING CONVICTIONS ARE MAINLY ENFORCED 2 MONTHS OF THE YEAR FIRSTLY, AND ARE NOT DONE THE WHOLE YEAR.  generally alcohol-related driving offences account for approximately 25% of all Criminal Code prosecutions. ” If you drink and drive, it’s everybody’s business” still.

AND in Canada in all provinces now too DRIVING at  supposedly  UNSAFE SPEED, supposedly speeding  ACCOUNTS FOR ABOUT 14.5 PERCENT OF  VEHICLE ACCIDENT’S DEATHS AS OPPOSED TO IMPAIRED DRIVING AT 45 PERCENT!
 
so tell me, do tell us all  again why the police do not go after the drunk drivers more, and when they do it is only 2 months of the year, December and January, when the alcoholics do stay alcoholics all year and likely drive impaired still all year too.. so why does the police fill up the courts with the fast buck, revenue generating traffic tickets, helping the insurance firms to get more money too by increasing the insurance rates??? The cops, RCMP too should really now  spend more time on putting into jail all the alcoholics who drive, but also allof the bad civil and public servants, politicians,  and bad citizens who abuse the taxpayers money rather firstly too. And why are they not doing it? Cause even they abuse the taxpayers monies too? and the likely fact that half of the cops are also drunks..
 
A  survey of Ontario policing  found that, on average, a police officer laid 2.5 drinking driving charges per year. The study suggests several reasons for low enforcement rates:
not enough personnel (small towns only have one patrol unit that has to be available for emergencies and cannot be sidetracked by an impaired driving situation)
– time-consuming arrest proceedings (including the availability of a technician for BAC  testing)
-attitudes of officers and administrators (not a serious crime, too time-consuming)
– the court system (many forms to process the charge, mistakes lead to acquittals)
-amount of paperwork required (2 hour average to do paperwork) (Vingilis, 1991, 202)

Research ALSO found a significant divergence in the punishments given to impaired drivers BY THE POLICE AND THE COURTS, locally and Canada wide too.

In an average year in Canada, impaired driving killed 1,212 persons, injured 71,532, and caused damage to 236,375 vehicles, translating into 1,010 fatal crashes, 48,890 injury-only crashes and 155,510 property-damage only (PDO) crashes, totaling an average of 205,410 crashes in all. In turn, on average, this cost Canadians between $1.90 billion (Real Dollar Estimate model) and $11.28 billion (Willingness to Pay model) dollars, depending on the costing model and assumptions used. To put this another way, that represents a cost of between about $59.00 and $341.00 per Canadian. EXCLUDING THE EXTRA COSTS FOR INSURANCE NOW TOO..

Jurisdiction   Estimated Fatalities,   2006 IMPAIRED DRIVING
British Columbia 458
Alberta 477
Saskatchewan 157
Manitoba 144
Ontario 885
Quebec 692
New Brunswick
Nova Scotia 93
Prince Edward Island 28
Newfoundland & Labrador 48
Yukon, NW Territory & Nunavut 27
Canada 3,122

Jurisdiction  Estimated % Alcohol-Involved – Fatalities,  2006
British Columbia 36.70%
Alberta 43.40%
Saskatchewan 47.90%
Manitoba 44.60%
Ontario 34.30%

In 2006, it was estimated that about 368,396 individuals were injured in motor vehicle crashes. MADD Canada estimates that approximately 75,374 of these individuals were injured in impaired driving crashes (207 per day). Note that this figure does not include impaired crash injuries occurring on the water or snowmobiling.

It is very interesting that when most of the news reporters, governments tend to write about heart attacks, or car accidents they seem to downplay, omit alcohol’s effect and why is that?

On the surface, at least, Canadians  appear to be among the healthiest in the country when it comes to cardiovascular disease.  But the realties  are deceiving and paint a much different picture once you look into them. Twenty-two per cent of them smoke, 60 percent of them drink alcohol, 50 per cent are overweight or obese and 67 per cent do not eat a healthy diet. Many persons have often, continually unresolved negative personal stress   All of these factors contribute to high blood pressure — and they are entirely preventable, or deal able with.  A lot of what we perceive to be healthy eating and doing actually isn’t.  For starters, all persons people should shake their addiction to salty, packaged meals. reduce their red meat consumptions, reduce their meal sizes, eat more regularly too, One of the biggest problems is the high amount of sodium in our food,” This salt encourages water in the blood to remain, and gives more work for the heart to pump. Everyone does have  responsibilities, parents, spouses, food distributors as do governments and food manufacturers. Now  it’s about all of us doing a better job to increase public awareness and promoting more lifestyle changes around being healthy. According to the World Health Association, high blood pressure is the leading risk for death in the world.  Hypertension is the leading cause of heart and stroke disease, but there are no obvious symptoms.  Now  regular Doctor checkups,  with a competent and not too often a pretentious doctor too, to screen for hypertension, Diabetes as well  are required since studies suggest will affect half of all Canadians by the time they turn 60.  Over time, high blood pressure can damage blood vessel walls causing scarring that promotes the buildup of plaque deposits, which narrow and eventually block blood flow. Increased blood pressure can lead to heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure and other diseases that many persons next do die from. One in five Canadians has high blood pressure — and many  Canadians are among the least likely in the country to take measures to lower it. Only  80 per cent of the 4.6 million Canadians with hypertension take medication to control it, according to new findings from Statistics Canada. Doing things like having a  healthy diet high in fruits and vegetables and low in saturated fat is very effective, as is regular physical activity and maintaining a healthy body weight.  The prevalence of high blood pressure was about the same in men as in women, but men were less likely to be aware of their condition. The numbers should give all cause for concern.
Blood Pressure Risk Factors
– – Smoking
– – Lack of exercise
– – Poor diet and excess sodium
– – Excessive alcohol consumption
– – Being overweight or obese

Hypertension another  leading personal cause of heart attacks, strokes and other major medical problems. For most North Americans even if you don’t have high blood pressure now, you need to make a serious lifestyle, food  adjustments now to avoid personal health problems, especially Cancer and Heart diseases next  in one’s future.   A person is considered hypertensive with a blood-pressure reading of 140/90 millimetres of mercury (mmHg) or higher. Healthy adults should have a blood pressure in the range of 120/80 mmHg, although that target varies with age and other health conditions. There are many DIFFERENT factors that contribute to high blood pressure, including first the type of one’s food consumption, too much read meat, not enough fruit and vegetables,  being overweight, a lack of physical activity, excessive sodium consumption and aging. Hypertension, while it has few obvious symptoms, is a leading risk factor for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease. To Help with many person’s medical symptoms of their diseases often we may still  have to deal with the root causes of their sicknesses too.. including their stress, anxieties, their wrong doings too. I too have found one of the free great cure, a help to relieve my high blood pressure *, stress, and instead of keeping it all boiled up inside, I express it, share it with everyone else all of  the things that rightfully have peeved me off, and it seems I keep on coming back to my favorite complaints until they actually get resolved including .. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/04/cure-for-stress-high-blood-pressure-heart-attack/
   
 
  • Hospital deaths account for half of deaths annually Now about 225,000 Canadian patients a year suffer from hospital-acquired infections that substantially extend their stays, and between 8,000 and 12,000 people die annually as a result of  infection with common but dangerous infections – C. difficile, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE) – The infections   C. difficile, MRSA and VRE – are not airborne, but spread by contact. yet the police make a lot of noise about number of   deaths caused by speeding AND DRUNK DRIVERS..  we need more cops rather in the hospitals aressting the bad Health Ministers, bad  doctors and bad nurses etc.,

Meanwhile

9 city employees fired in benefits claim fraud Toronto Star – BY THE NUMBERS The city’s fraud and waste hotline received tips leading to findings of wrongdoing in 42 cases. The auditor general highlighted 15 of the 42 cases in his report.

Toronto refuses to release details of alleged fraud Globe and Mail

 

TORONTO, ONTARIO Facing pressure to release more details about alleged fraud or wrongdoing investigated by the auditor-general, the city revealed that it had fired three staff and suspended 10 others without pay. But the city would not say for which among a list of allegations in the report, including theft and improperly cancelled parking tickets, the employees were punished. Meanwhile, in a separate case of alleged fraud, the city announced it had fired nine staff it had sent home with pay last month for allegedly filing false health-benefit claims and pocketing the cash. However, the mayor and city officials would not say how much, saying it could jeopardize a police probe into the allegations, uncovered by the company that administers the city’s benefits, Manulife Financial. The report includes allegations that employees improperly cancelled parking tickets, worked $50,000 in “excessive overtime,” viewed pornography on city computers, wrongly recommended private contractors to homeowners and rented their own apartments to social-services recipients. Pressed by reporters, Mr. Miller said three of the employees facing allegations in the auditor-general’s report were terminated, one resigned, and another 10 were suspended without pay. Mr. Ford, like other members of the audit committee, received a confidential briefing on the punishments behind closed doors but was “severely warned” not to share what he learned. He accused the mayor of trying to keep a lid on the allegations and the city of being too soft on the accused employees: “It’s coming from the top.”

Now we all have heard about the vast city hall corruption in Montreal..  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/11/03/check-out-the-serious-very-large-amount-of-alcohol-consumption-that-was-is-being-carried-out-at-the-montreal-city-hall/

Drunk driving arrests jump and much more

4737_royalba 

It is not the rapists, drunk drivers that mostly  fill the courts calendars, docks  

rather it is mostly the revenue generating traffic tickets..

I’ve already heard of someone who was pulled over because his car “looked like it was in bad condition.” With poor  Department of Motor Vehicles to inspect the cars, no kind of real governmental  or police accountability or even a fully honest, decent functioning system of justice, our police officers seem to have the landed the most lucrative job  in town: as government thugs. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/03/19/third-police-vehicle-impounded-under-hypocrtical-speeding-legislation/

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 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 .. Too many cops still do  go after revenue generating speeding tickets and why? Any traffic ticket on your driving record may adversely affect your insurance rates. Insurance companies also rely on “accident settlement” charts and police accident reports to determine who is “at fault” and base rates upon claims made by the insured.

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 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..  firstly you cannot takes these 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…. Accident -Traffic Ticket Facts. Less than 10% of all police officers in Ontario receive specific, detailed accident investigation training.    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 deaths were likely related to impaired drivers now too. You did notice the cops do too often still  not  practice what they preach to others they themselves still do like to speed, and how many like to drink and drive still too?

  Look at this, due to the undeniable Recession, budget and tax cuts,  Municipalities across Canada have  been cutting back even on their services, snow clearing now too, which has been leading up to more car accidents, and cause the police cannot tell the truth about their employers, the police now lie, and divert the truth, saying that speeding vehicles were the cause of most of the accidents. In reality now also  speeding also still is not the main reasons for accidents but driving while impaired is.. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/01/08/drivers-will-face-significant-insurance-rates/

Stimulant drugs, such as caffeine, amphetamines and cocaine, may increase alertness, but this does not mean they improve driving skills. The tired driver who drinks coffee to stay awake on the road should be aware that the stimulant effect can wear off suddenly, and that the only remedy for fatigue is to pull off the road, and sleep. Amphetamines do not seem to affect driving skills when taken at medical doses, but they do make some people over-confident, which can lead to risky driving. Higher doses of amphetamines often make people hostile and aggressive.

People who use cocaine are also likely to feel confident about their driving ability. But cocaine use affects vision, causing blurring, glare and hallucinations. “Snow lights” — weak flashes or movements of light in the peripheral field of vision — tend to make drivers swerve toward or away from the lights. People who use cocaine may also hear sounds that aren’t there, such as bells ringing, or smell scents that aren’t there, such as smoke or gas, which distract them from their driving.

Cannabis impairs depth perception, attention span and concentration, slows reaction time, and decreases muscle strength and hand steadiness — all of which can affect a person’s ability to drive safely.

The effects of hallucinogenic drugs, such as LSD, ecstasy, mescaline and psilocybin, distort perception and mood. Driving while under the influence of any of these drugs is extremely dangerous.

Because people react differently to the effects of alcohol, it is very difficult for a person to judge his or her own tolerance. A person may not feel “drunk,” but may still be legally impaired.

Is there some way I can quickly “sober up” if I’ve been drinking and need to drive home? No. Once a person consumes alcohol, it enters the bloodstream, and only time can reduce the concentration of alcohol in the blood. It takes about an hour for the average human body to process and eliminate two-thirds of the alcohol in one standard drink. This rate is constant, meaning that the more you drink, the longer time you need to wait before driving. Drinking coffee or other caffeinated beverages might make you more alert, but your ability to drive will still be impaired. 

How many accidents involve drivers who have been drinking alcohol or using other drugs? About 1,350 people die each year in Canada in motor vehicle crashes involving a drinking driver, and many more are seriously injured or disabled. In Ontario in 1997, alcohol was involved in 39 per cent of motor vehicle fatalities, 45 per cent of marine vehicle fatalities and 64 per cent of snowmobile and all-terrain vehicle fatalities. Drinking and driving is the largest single criminal cause of death and injury in Canada.

The role of other drugs, used on their own or in combination with alcohol, is not routinely assessed in traffic accidents, but is known to be an important factor in many road deaths. When people involved in traffic accidents were tested for the presence of drugs in a 1992 study, the drug found most often was alcohol. However, the total number of positive test results for all drugs other than alcohol was greater than the number of positive test results for alcohol alone. After alcohol, the most commonly detected drugs were cannabis, benzodiazepines and cocaine.

Studies have found that people who have been convicted of impaired driving offenses come from many different backgrounds, age and income groups. Such studies have also identified certain characteristics of people who drink and drive. Looking at convicted drinking drivers, we see that

  • most are male
  • a high proportion are “heavy” drinkers
  • many have an “antisocial attitude,” meaning they lack respect for the law and the safety of others, and
  • of those who are convicted of drinking and driving, almost all report having driven while under the influence many times before.

Impaired driving of any vehicle is a criminal offense with strict penalties under federal and provincial law. Such penalties include suspension of the driver’s licence, fines, jail sentences, treatment and education.  “http://www.camh.net/About_Addiction_Mental_Health/Drug_and_Addiction_Information/alchohol_drugs_driving_dyk.html

Drinking and driving continues be a major cause of injury and death even because the number of persons consuming alcohol has been increasing and not decreasing.  

The whole truth comes out.. drunk drivers, snow removal, road accidents, recession..

Surging welfare demands in Ontario now really still begs the Questions as to when actually many of these people had lost their jobs, were unable to find one, after all welfare is used after one’s months of Unemployment insurance is used up first? It ALSO THUS seems someone is not telling us the true figures of the number of people unemployed in Canada, Ontario firstly, the recession did not just start this year.. especially since the people on welfare are generally no longer counted as unemployed.. Well the whole truth is coming out, being exposed even in Ontario. 

“CP  Ont. – Premier Dalton McGuinty dismissed calls Tuesday to accelerate the uploading of social assistance programs from municipalities, despite warnings that surging welfare costs will mean big tax hikes for struggling homeowners. “The short answer is no, I don’t believe so,” McGuinty said in London, Ont. The province, which pays for 80 per cent of welfare benefits, has moved a “long way” towards easing the burden on municipalities, he said. “Our burden, so to speak, is four times greater than theirs when it comes to dealing with the challenge of increasing welfare roles,” McGuinty said. “Just as they have financial challenges, so do we, and we’re going to have to find a way to manage our way through these.”  

A recent TD Economics report warned that homeowners in struggling Ontario communities may be hit with big property-tax hikes to cover rising welfare costs during the recession. The report singled out Toronto, but TD economist and co-author Derek Burleton said other municipalities will face similar financial pressures as the economy sours. In its budget plan released Tuesday, Toronto signalled that residential property taxes will rise by four per cent in 2009. Mayor David Miller cited higher costs for transit, policing, snow clearance (* this  explains why there have been more road accidents in Ontario now too, 17000 in the last 2 months, since Ontario’s roads have not been immediately cleared of the snow it seems..) and welfare in defending the hike. Municipalities can’t go into deficits, but the provincial government can. Municipalities currently pay 20 per cent of welfare benefits, but they also administer the program, and the province has capped increases to its share of those administrative costs, Burleton noted in his report. 

Windsor, Ont., has been struggling for years to find a way out of a severe economic downturn that began in 2002, said Mayor Eddie Francis.  As manufacturing jobs disappeared, welfare caseloads started to “skyrocket” in 2005, he said.  With Windsor’s jobless rate hitting 11 per cent – the highest in Canada – more people are turning to welfare and other social programs as their unemployment benefits run out, Francis said.  As the costs of maintaining those programs go up, the amount of tax revenue the city is collecting is plunging, he added.  * “We’re at a point right now where… we’ve cut to the bone in terms of city services,” Francis said.  Last year, the city lost about $15 million in tax revenue – the equivalent of a four per cent tax hike – because property values are falling and companies are shuttering plants and factories, Francis said.  The loss of a GM plant alone would cost the city $3 million in much-needed tax revenue, he added.  Speeding up the provincial upload of costs from municipalities and the arrival of much-needed federal cash for infrastructure projects would ease financial burden many cities and towns are facing, he said.  “Everything is needed right now – all the tools,” he said.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090211/national/ont_municipalities_welfare 

* It clearly appears that the lying Police chief of Ontario and also cops themselves who wrongfully  even as of lately had have blamed most of the drivers themselves, speeding,  for most of the accidents, they clearly wrongfully had failed to mention now that snow clearing  road services were not up to par due to the recession… and definitely contributed to the accidents. the Liars, the” OPP responded to over 17,000 crashes on OPP patrolled highways in the last two months.

Now also the recession has been  going on for years in Ontario since 2005 and Stephen Harper did not know this as the Prime Minister of Canada, so now supposedly he could not deal with it or in reality he wrongfully again did not care to know, deal with it still  too? and he does not know firsthand about alcoholism and it’s  problem now too? 

Former Liberal prime minister Paul Martin complained Stephen Harper was too slow in bringing forward a stimulus package, saying the government should have acted before Christmas. “I think the situation is very worrisome and I think that when you see these job numbers it’s a pity that we didn’t begin with the stimulus much earlier,” Martin said of a $40-billion plan MPs approved in principle last week.  “The quicker you get at this kind of thing, the better off you are. I also think it’s very important the kind of stimulus that you engage in.”

Meanwhile, Brian Mulroney expressed skepticism over Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney’s prediction the economy will pick up next year.  “While I hope he’s right, I find it somewhat optimistic,” said Mulroney, who grappled with a massive deficit that amounted to 8.7 per cent of the GDP when he took over from Pierre Trudeau in 1984.   http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090210/national/tv_prime_ministers

Here is what I know for sure in Canada proper policing, management ,  supervision  human rights commissions are a real fact of life, society, in schools, life,  in churches, governments, commerce, institutions, civil and public services, professional services too,  and elsewhere, even on the net,  for you will always have those 30 percent at least of the persons who will try to cheat, lie  , steal, bend the rules, falsely believe they are above the laws, Self  regulation alone is too often pretentious, farcical, often not applied as well. That applies especially to the professionals, civil and public services, police, municipalities, politicians now as well..

February 1, 2009

it is about time

    0wine_cartoon

A new law that takes effect today in the province of British Columbia, Canada that now will find convicted impaired drivers breathing into a tube if they want to start their vehicle after serving a mandatory driving ban. The law will force installation of a 15-hundred-dollar breath-sampling device and ignition interlock on vehicles for at least year with the impaired driver bearing the cost. The devices will be required for anyone completing an impaired-driving prohibition, including two 90-day bans or three 24-hour roadside suspensions within a five-year period. The government says research shows the breath-test devices sharply cut the rate of repeat drunk-driving offences. For some reasons BC seems to leads the nation in drug usage and impaired driving, Alcoholism now too.. Now if they would also apply this law to the RCMP itself .

Top Ten Excuses For Drinking & Driving 

1 “I can handle my liquor”

– According to police, this one typically applies to the “macho” variety of men who feel their exaggerated sense of manliness enables them to overcome the effects of alcohol. Trouble is, there’s no physiological evidence to support that claim – alcohol is a drug, and if you drink it, your mind and body will immediately feel the effects. Drink too much, and you will be impaired – no matter how big, tough or macho you think you are.

 
2. “I don’t want to pay for a taxi”

– Depending on the distance travelled, you could indeed face a significant cost to get home in a taxi. But compared to the cost of losing your licence, injuring or killing someone, it’s a small amount to pay for a safe ride home. Other options if your celebrations involve alcohol: share a cab, take transit, walk or assign a designated driver. Whatever the option you take, you need to plan ahead. Ask a friend, co-worker or your partner to stay sober, or make arrangements beforehand to have someone come get you after the party ends. Alternatively, stay at a hotel or friend’s house where the celebration is taking place.

3.“Leaving my car overnight is a hassle”

– Going back to the bar or party location the next day to retrieve your vehicle can indeed be a burden but having your car impounded at a police roadcheck is an even bigger hassle. If you’re concerned about leaving your vehicle behind, call Operation Red Nose – a volunteer-driven service to get you and your car home safely. Visit http://www.rednose.bc.ca for more information.

4. “I always make it home after a few”

– Each year in British Columbia, approximately 120 people don’t make it home due to alcohol-related collisions. The drivers who survive those collisions often tell police afterwards that they had very little to drink and really didn’t think they were impaired, despite the fact their blood-alcohol levels were well over the legal limit. Impairment begins with the first drink. And the risk of crashing and killing yourself and others increases with each alcoholic drink consumed.

5.“It’s only a short drive home”

– If that’s the case, your taxi fare will be minimal. Remember: CounterAttack roadchecks are often set-up outside drinking establishments – so no matter how close to home you may be, you might still encounter a friendly, neighbourhood roadcheck.

6.“I’m OK to drive”

– Are you really? Alcohol affects your judgment. How many people over the course of human history have learned that the hard way? And how many lives have been lost or permanently damaged through the bad judgment of drunk drivers? It’s simple – if you drink, don’t drive.

7.“One more drink won’t hurt”

– Wrong. Every drink you consume adds to your level of impairment. The “just one more” mentality can often lead to many more, as people get caught up in the spirit of celebration.

8.“They only take your licence if you’re drunk”

– Imagine for a moment that every person at a sold-out Canucks game has their licence suspended and their car impounded. Then imagine that same arena filled to capacity for another game – and once again, every person in the building has their licence suspended and their car impounded. That’s the approximate number (more than 38,000) of drivers each year in British Columbia who are caught by police when their ability to drive is affected by alcohol or drugs. Like the sign says at GM Place: “If you drink, don’t drive.”

9.“I’m more careful after a couple”

– That’s like saying you’re more intelligent after sniffing glue. It makes no sense. Alcohol affects your reaction time, decision-making, coordination and visual functions; your ability to steer, track moving objects and brake appropriately; and your ability to control your speed and lane position. The more you drink, the worse you drive.

10.“I wasn’t drinking/only smoked a joint”

– Another urban myth that has no bearing in reality. Numerous studies have shown that “stoned” drivers who have taken drugs other than alcohol including cannabis, cocaine and even prescription drugs can be every bit as dangerous as drunk drivers. And new legislation now allows police to test drivers they suspect may be drug-impaired; if convicted, they face the same penalties as alcohol-impaired drivers.

What’s Going To Be Your Excuse? Impaired drivers can face a range of penalties, including immediate
24-hour roadside suspensions and vehicle impoundment, 90-day driving prohibitions, fines, mandatory rehabilitation, ignition interlock, criminal charges and jail time. With the introduction of ICBC’s Driver Risk Premium, drivers who have one or more impaired driving convictions and/or two or more roadside suspensions will pay more for their insurance.

 
So don’t make any excuses . Remember that impairment starts with the first drink, so plan ahead for a safe ride home.
