Commissioner for Complaints for Telecommunications Services,

  iphone
Canadian cell phone companies are officially giving customers the ability to refuse mid-term changes to their contracts under a new wireless code of conduct. Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association on Tuesday, promises to let customers cancel their contracts without early termination fees if the carrier makes material changes to terms — or customers can refuse the changes outright. So, for example, if a customer is in the middle of a two-year contract and the carrier tries to raise prices, the customer can cancel the contract or continue their existing deal until it expires. “In the case of such material changes that are unfavourable to customers, we either give them the right to terminate the contract without any additional fees for early termination, or allow them to remain on the unchanged contract,” The code specifies that the rule doesn’t apply in the case of changes required by law or for customers without a fixed-term contract. ” They make it sound like they are doing us a favour my actually honouring a contract.”  “How nice of them to let us get out of a contract that was broken by the other party. You’d think common sense would have just allowed us to always do this. Wow, now contracts really GO both ways?” ”  This doesn’t mean a thing, Compainies like Rogers will finad another way to screw you like they have done for years.”

 How basically absurd in the first place.   The companies were by law already not allowed to change the terms of a SIGNED contract but yet they did anyway. All just ” More PR and BS!” Also ” Rogers is the worst culprit for their unrelenting repetitive telemarketing calls.” ” Just all more manure  to keep the related incompetent civil and public servants looking busy”. Cellular firms get new customer rules but they still have not honoured all the old ones.. Canada’s mobile phone companies will be required to make sure consumers understand their contracts when they buy a cellphone under a new code of conduct but will the phone companies next fully honour the same contracts? Unlikley. 
 
This code of conduct in a very short while even  next was already abused, misused by Rogers.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/15/about-time-big-3-put-into-their-place-bell-rogers-and-telus/
 
 There also have been well-publicized stories about users who fully befdorehand  didn’t understand the terms of their bills when it cames to text messaging or downloading movies or music and  they thus ended up with monthly bills costing thousands of dollars.  Horror stories have often already abounded about customers with unexpectedly very high cell phone bills due to a carrier over charging, or  customers being lied to,  misinformed ,  never originally being fully communicated when signing their original contract, promsied servcies not even delivered fully.  The supposedly new  supported code of conduct is now supposedly designed to help all of the wireless subscribers now understand all of their bills better, including the actual terms of service, contract agreements and advertising promises, all which  would not be even required, applicable if  all of the firm and employees  of these firms were honest in reality in the first place. The too often liars and bad employees are not about to stop their wrong doing because of a supposed new code very likely. The liars in the firms, elsewhere in rality  they all do need to be fired from their jobs firstly instead. Unless you do that all you have now is just another farcical merry go round.  Thus unkept promises, unenforced  and inadequate regulating of these firms is still the major bad problem. These are mostly the same firms, ISPs for the most part that had before  lied to us all already about their poor Internet services too. Now they  resolve your complaints efficiently, fairly and courteously? Ha, ha, ha,  rather they will find rather a buck passing way, false  excuse why they cannot help you in reality, as I have recently  experienced now too. PR is still mostlty lies these days. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/06/14/buyer-beware-beware/
 
Most Consumer advocates don’t think much of the new code. A code of conduct adopted by Canada’s cell phone service providers is a political answer that doesn’t address real consumer concerns, another competent  critic now has still charged .The code will be administered by the useless, pretentious  Commissioner for Complaints for Telecommunications Services, a body set up two years ago by the industry to negotiate disputes between customers and companies.    
 
In its first year, 2007-08,  CCTS was still unable able to resolve about 40  per cent, of the complaints according to its own website. What a very high failure rate.  About one-third of the complaints were related to wireless services. 40  per cent, that is about the number of unhappy Customers with Bell’s Internet services too
  
Telecommunications analyst Eamon Hoey of Hoey Associates said the code is meaningless.“There’s nothing impressive about a code of conduct,” he said. “This is just a way of smoothing over the obvious. They haven’t served their customers very well. Now they’re coming in with a political solution to what should be a customer solution.”Hoey said the litany of complaints about cellphone service in Canada includes “astronomical” base fees, lengthy contracts that are expensive to get out of, poor coverage outside of cities, charges for services such as 911 that may not be available, add-ons such as system access fees and problems with roaming charges. http://www.calgaryherald.com/news/calgary/Code+conduct+phone+service+providers+nothing+impressive/1951350/story.html
 

I heard firsthand one teenager saying to another teenager “I cannot trust you, you lie to me all the time” and this next had made me reflect upon the reality that the average person lies 3 times in every ten minutes of conversation, and it also reminded me with my past years of undeniable dealing with Bell related to my internet download problems, they too had lied to me all the time, by not admitting the truth first that there was a problem, nor next honestly admitting the cause of the problem. It seems that spin doctoring, misleading, lying to others is a very major part of not just the lawyers, used car salesmen, but a regular part of the sales, advertising, corporate way of doing business with consumers these days Canada wide now as well. I too at least am known for telling the truth and that is worth much too. Bell is a known liar and that is not worth much.. The big corporates do prefer no outside regulating bodies, they want to to deal with each customer individually, divide and conquer approach, for they are afraid of massive class action suits, and there are many now against Bell even.

 
Look I have rightfully hundreds of time to the government, on the net, to the news media already have said that Bell is undeniably, unacceptable too, a bad big despotic control freak, monopolistic, immoral, deceptive in reality, practice, and in reality Bell itself does not honour the normal, decent laws, rules, regulations. Bell solely is a dictator that wants all others to play by it’s own rules. Bell does not know how to respect, keep, honour the terms of it’s contractual obligations to it’s own customers, immoral Bell rather likes to rewrite the contract continuously, one sided so that it is always better solely for Bell.

Well even if Bully abusive Bell falsely under the guise of profitability, competitiveness, making more profit or whatever, now still thinks it is a big, large, established firm, corporation that does not have to play by the established rules, rather it can make it’s own rules. I on behalf of all Canadian, Bell’s customers even now, I am rightfully asking nevertheless that the federal government, prime Minister Stephen Harper and his cabinet exemplary force Bell to respect the laws of decency, norms, the established regulations and to even regulate next rightfully Bell much more so that bad Bell definitely stops being guilty of it’s undeniable false misleading advertising practices, unfair and restrictive trade practices for the good of all Canadians now as well , not just for the good of Bell.

Imagine that Bell has been in Business for many years and was, is still too often, wrongfully guilty now clearly of misleading advertisements, fraudulent and unacceptable business practices, not living up to their contractual obligations, as I now have PERSONALLY WITNESSED, EXPERIENCED and undeniably detailed to even Bell and many others and many times too now . I had Paid for a high speed unlimited download service but that is not what I got next. I got low internet speed at a high price. With Bell you have to check your actual delivered speeds , “internet download and upload speed test” continually too cause Bell wrongfully seems always to change it to suit themselves..

Quebec to end automatic cell phone contract renewals, surprise fees and what about the Internet service providers, who are the same firms doing the same bad things there too to the customers, well?

“Quebec to end automatic cellphone contract renewals, surprise fees CBC.ca – The Quebec government has tabled legislation to better protect consumers in the province when they sign cellphone contracts. Justice Minister Kathleen Weil said laws aimed at protecting cellphone users were written in the early 1970s and don’t address current consumer habits. She said Bill 60, introduced Tuesday, would revise outdated rules. There can be “very onerous penalty fees” to pull out of a contract once a service provider automatically renews it – usually for a period lasting three years, Weil said. The bill would prohibit the renewal of cellphone contracts without a customer’s written approval, she said. It would also force merchants to disclose the total cost of the goods and services offered, a move Weil said should prevent customers from being caught off guard by hefty fees for services they don’t want, such as text messaging. In addition, companies won’t be able to suddenly increase fees during the life of the contract. “Consumers often don’t understand everything that they have agreed to when they’ve signed that contract,” the minister said. “The contracts are a little vague, and there are services that are added over time without their knowledge and without their consent.” “The first thing that [merchants] do is offer you a free cellphone, and it’s sort of the lure that gets you into that relationship,” Weil told reporters. Merchants will have to explain existing warranty protection Weil said the new law would make it illegal for merchants to sell extended warranties before telling customers what the manufacturer already offers for warranty protection. It would also put an end to expiry dates on prepaid cellphone gift cards. The minister said the bill, amending the province’s Consumer Protection Act, would correct an imbalance in an evolving industry. “In consumer protection you often have an imbalance that happens over time and in the whole field of telecommunications. There is not a jurisdiction in North America that hasn’t noticed this imbalance.” Michel Arnold, head of the non-profit consumer rights group Option consommateurs, said Quebec is the first jurisdiction in the country to introduce this kind of consumer protection. Weil said officials in the province receive nearly 700 formal complaints about cellphone contracts each year – about 10 per cent of all consumer complaints – as well as thousands of inquiries. Bill 60 is expected to be adopted before the end of the year.

and what about in the rest of Canada too? Bell Changing horses, making changes, additions to the contract in midstream is invalid, a breach, still not allowed, especially without the subsequent, and pre consent, approval of both parties now still too and is a breach of contract rather. That includes Bell capping of my bit torrent downloads too on my unlimited download account

Now in my decades of real life experiences in Canada the existing laws, regulating societies, governments clearly did not stop many Realtors, lawyers or even now Bell Sympatico from telling lies to the customers, others. http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/07/13/misapplications-of-the-laws-in-canada/

With Bell you have to check your actual delivered speeds , “internet download and upload speed test” cause Bell seems to change it to suit themselves.. (Presently I am with Acanac Inc. http://www.acanac.ca 1-866-281-3538, and do see their speed test too).

Now this mis-advertisement of the actual speeds attained also reflects the common problem we tend to have also in Canada with the false, misleading advertising, trade practices by Bell, Rogers, Videotron in regard to the speeds of their iphone and DSL, ADSL, cable internet services. These Communication, ISP firms amongst others are known to inflate, advertise substantially higher speeds than the consumer will actual get next get on the average, and the next related internet congestion cause web connectivity problems, and also reductions of the downloads speeds too.. Over 2M Canadians now have cable based phone. Most of those were former Bell Canada customers.

Bell itself found a an excuse for not performing a specific job assigned to them under the contract agreement but fooled few people in the process now too. One side breaching a contract is a common, often fact of life, very common, and it happens often in in the Computer business, with Internet Service Providers, in Real estate and even with new home contractors now as well sadly, and I have often witnessed it myself.. and pretentious self regulating boards, governments are mostly useless too, and it is basically too costly to get a lawyer, it only makes the lawyer’s richer, so now the best way to deal with any breach of contract is to expose the bad guys to all, to the news media and thus really put them out of business.. and I have done that even with major corporations successfully now too.. ”

Now what about having now the much need real consumer protections for the citizens of Canada here as well from the greedy, lying, no good corporations? The Liberals are just as bad as the Conservatives in not dealing in Canada with the lying, price gouging communication firms..

“Conservative government bows to the wishes of large corporations and ignore consumer protection.” ” Tony Clement, He is protecting the providers of these services, their monopoly and their profits. Never mind the Consumer whom the Office of Consumer Affairs was set up to help. ” ” government is pro-business. And no matter who we vote for, that will remain the same. How many of our government officials actually read our comments. One question, what does ‘lobbying’ actual entails?”

” Tony Clement ..no doubt the Minister’s seats at the Rogers Centre in Toronto and the Bell Centre in Montreal are assured.” ” Tony Clement is not for us. This fellow is definitely not a consumer advocate and to make it quite blunt – he is not for our welfare. We the people need a government which encourages completion and one which tries to hide the oligopolies which really don’t re-invest much into Canada, unlike the US. Perhaps a massive shakeup of our government infrastructure and the ministries is badly needed. We want a complete cleanup from top to bottom ” ” I think we need a complete public audit of exactly where all of our tax money is actually be spent!” http://www.thestar.com/sciencetech/article/688547#

It has always confounded me as to why the liars, crooks, deceivers, abusers  too often do still do think they can get away with now, next and forever.
 
FOR WE TEND TO KNOW THAT THEY THE CROOKS, ABUSERS TOO,  NOW ARE NOT ABOUT TO STOP THEIR WRONG DOINGS. RATHER THEY WILL NEXT EVEN ESCALATE, CONTINUE IN THEM. AND THAT IS ANOTHER VALID REASON  THEY DO NEED TO BE EXPOSED, PROSECUTED AND STOPPED. EVEN FOR THE GOOD OF US ALL.

Canada’s economic health worsens: Mr Harper note this.

  0canadadollarfalling2

Canada’s economic health worsens: report  Financial Post March 23, 2009 9:02 AM Statistics Canada said Monday its composite leading index fell 1.1% — the biggest monthly decline since 1981 — following a revised 0.9% drop in January, with nine of the 10 sector components losing ground. Most economists had expected a 0.9% drop in February. OTTAWA — Key indicators of Canada’s economic health fell more than expected February, as activity continued to weaken in the housing and auto sectors as the economic downturn deepened and stock prices tumbled. Statistics Canada said Monday its composite leading index fell 1.1% — the biggest monthly decline since 1981 — following a revised 0.9% drop in January, with nine of the 10 sector components losing ground.  Most economists had expected a 0.9% drop in February. “The housing and stock markets continued to post the largest declines, while losses in manufacturing steepened as the auto industry began to implement extensive shutdowns at the turn of the year,” the federal agency said. The biggest decline was in the housing index, which dropped 8% as “as an upturn in home sales was outweighed by fewer housing starts in February,” it said. The stock prices indicator fell 7.5% and durable goods were down 1.4%.  “The three manufacturing indicators declined in unison,” the agency said. “New orders fell 4.8%, with the weakness in autos intensifying and spreading to other industries like iron and steel. Inventories fell for a seventh straight month, but not as fast as sales, reducing the ratio of shipments to stocks.” Statistics Canada said money supply was the only component to rise, rising 1.8% in February from the previous month. “The stimulus from monetary policy also was a major factor behind the slower rate of decline in the leading index for the United States,” it said. Ian Pollick, economics strategist at TD Securities, said “this is undoubtedly a weak report.” “We know that there exists a good correlation between the level of this index and real GDP in the same month, as such, we see further evidence that February GDP will be quite soft,” he said.

Food prices eating in to Canadians’ pockets.  Rising gas and food prices made 2008 a tough year for Canadians and their wallets, according to a new report from Statistics Canada. The year saw consumer prices as a whole rise slightly faster than the year before, the agency says, but that gradual increase “masked” big fluctuations at the pumps and in grocery stores.  Overall, consumer prices rose an average of 2.3% in 2008, slightly faster than the average increase of 2.2% the year before.  Within that, gas prices climbed by 12.7% on average over 2008, producing the largest annual increase since hurricanes Katrina and Rita wreaked havoc on the oil market in 2005. However, there is good news. Gas prices dropped as the year went on. Pump prices in December 2008 were 25.8% lower than in December 2007, Statistics Canada says, marking the largest year-over-year drop since the gasoline price index debuted in 1949. But in the aisles of their grocery stores, Canadians faced the opposite trend. Store prices on food rose 3.9% in 2008 and the annual increase in prices has been accelerating over the last five years.  In particular, the price of staples such as bread, rice, flour, milk and eggs rose “sharply” in 2008, due in part to higher transportation costs, rising commodity prices and increased demand for food in emerging markets abroad. http://www.calgaryherald.com/Business/Food+prices+eating+Canadians+pockets/1418807/story.html

With this very serious downturn in Alberta too I next do not expect as many Albertans to vote for you Mr Stephen Harper. It is very evident on the Alberta net that many, many  Conservatives are not happy with Mr Harper.

3 F’s STEPHEN HARPER

0sh3fsa1

Honourable Conservative  Stephen Harper prime minister claims he is doing a good job.. good for him.. only 30 percent of Canadians support him in this still.. 30 percent support the New Democrats.. 30 percent support the Liberals.. it seems we have triplet support…

STEPHEN HARPER’S false DEFINITION OF A CONSERVATIVE PERSON IS ONE WHO HAS FAITH, A FAMILY, AND SUPPORTS FREEDOM

WOW! FUNNY THAT WAS ALSO WHAT THE LAST CONSERVATIVE PREMIER OF ONTARIO WAS LIKE THAT NOW TOO. A NON PRACTISING CONSERVATIVE, HE USED HIS FREEDOM TO DO HIS OWN THING.
 
Harper’s  definition of freedom seems to be a religious police state,  and it does not matter if you cheat, lie, steal, abuse others, are an alcoholic as long as you are married. It also it seems does not matter if you practice your religion too, as long as you have one..

>most libertarians, upset with Harper for calling out libertarians, insisting that Harper-style conservatism is significantly different from libertarianism, .. tells us is that the government ought to be small, and its functions severely limited…. it’s surprising that Harper would categorize his conservatism as an amalgamation of three fundamental “pillars” — Freedom, Faith, and Family.  Is Harper under the impression that individual liberty will lead to a mass abandonment of churches, a mass disintegration of society, the end of the nuclear family?  Libertarians are angry with Harper because he hasn’t made the government smaller, hasn’t cut taxes aggressively enough, and has seen fit to spend a boatload of money on a “stimulus” package that conservatives in the U.S. are decrying. Libertarians have been angry with Harper for the same reasons that fiscal conservatives have been angry with Harper. Why single out the libertarians? And it has more to do with insisting that Harper live up to what he used to say he believed  that he considered himself a “classical liberal,” which is just a synonym for libertarian). Andrew Coyne was right. We have very good reason to despise politics, and to hate what it does to people who become politicians. Stephen Harper used to be a libertarian. But, without explanation, he’s decided he isn’t one any longer, and he’s decided to pick a fight with libertarians.  http://westernstandard.blogs.com/shotgun/2009/03/stephen-harper-vs-libertarians-the-continuing-saga.html

The  past Ontario  premier he slept with a women who was not yet divorced from her husband.. not exactly exemplary family living.. then he called the police to suppress my freedom of speech on the matter.. and what religion did he really practice too now?

STEPHEN HARPER’S false DEFINITION OF A CONSERVATIVE PERSON IS EXACTLY THE DEFINITION I WOULD EXPECT FROM RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISTS WHO WANT FREEDOM OF RELIGION ENSURED. Harper is clearly trying to win back the support of the relgious right who feel he has led them down.. Harper for them he has not worked hard enough to oppose abortion, gays, all of the bad guys and gals, or to adequately promote religion as a professing Christian Evangelical..

I am surprised that the religious fundamentalists are not loudly objecting to this still Harper distortion too…

The biggest threat to families in Canada does not come from gay marriage, or abortion, or any of the other traditional social-conservative hobby-horses. It comes from divorce, since in Alberta there is no legal separation.. note this fact 30 percent of evangelical Christians practice divorce even cause many  pastors counsel it often, they are sex maniacs who like to keep their sex options open, even though God hates divorce. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/01/02/divorce-and-remarriage-in-the-christian-church/ 

OTTAWA – Canadians are losing their jobs at the rate of one every 30 seconds but Prime Minister Stephen Harper is incapable of feeling their pain, NDP Leader Jack Layton said yesterday. After speaking to the NDP federal council, Layton said that while hundreds are losing their jobs daily, Harper would rather talk about how the country is doing relatively well. “You don’t get a sense from this government that Canadians are suffering. In fact, he’s out there trying to say everything is rosy or just about to be rosy … and I have said, `Take off the rose-coloured glasses and talk to some of the people who have been thrown out of work,'” Layton told reporters. “They don’t seem to get it,” said the NDP leader, reminding reporters that Harper’s human resources minister, Diane Finley, recently said she wasn’t about to make Employment Insurance “lucrative for (the unemployed) to stay home and get paid for it.” In his speech, he accused Harper of making Canada’s economic downturn even worse by not acknowledging earlier that the country was headed into a recession.  Layton noted that since the October federal election, more than 300,000 Canadians have been thrown out of work, unemployment climbed to 7.7 per cent in February and the trade deficit has ballooned to $900 million. “Our economic straits are dire, but as we know we didn’t get here overnight … In September Stephen Harper was still claiming `the fundamentals of the Canadian economy are sound’ – yet another example that Stephen Harper is out of touch,” he said.  “By denying the problem, he has delayed our economic recovery.” http://www.thestar.com/News/Canada/article/606565
 
PRIME MINISTER STEPHEN HARPER WRONGFULLY AND CLEARLY IS STILL BUSY SHORING UP SUPPORT FOR HIS CONSERVATIVE PARTY AND NOT RATHER WORKING HARD ENOUGH TO HELP ALL OF THE TROUBLED CANADIANS.

Report card: Canada’s hospitals and Health Ministers

   
 
In Canada, many people, citizens  are needlessly dying because the hospital infection rates continued to rise  and all of the Health Ministers should be hung for this now immediately too, for murder, and I have been now saying that rightfully and openly for years now too.. do immediately deal with it. Report Card” Canada’s hospitals and Health Ministers are really  not doing enough to fight infections: while the Doctors take big pay cheques still home
 
 
Despite political focus post-SARS, hospital infection rates  The Canadian Press –  TORONTO – Toronto’s SARS crisis and Quebec’s C. difficile nightmare drew political attention – and additional funding – to the problem of hospital-acquired infections.

Report: Hospital infections on the rise Globe and Mail

“CP Despite political focus post-SARS, hospital infection rates continued to rise   TORONTO — Toronto’s SARS crisis and Quebec’s C. difficile nightmare drew political attention – and additional funding – to the problem of hospital-acquired infections. But despite that, rates of these infections continued to rise in the years immediately following the outbreaks, a new study reveals. Rates of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus – known as MRSA – more than doubled in the period from 1999 to 2005, said the study, which was based on a survey of Canadian hospitals with more 80 or more patient beds.  Clostridium difficile infections ( shit  disease ) also rose over that period and the number of hospitals reporting new cases of infection with vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus climbed 77 per cent over the period. “Despite the two major communicable diseases – SARS and C. difficile – despite the emphasis by the Canadian Public Safety Institute on safer health care, despite all those things, our institutional approaches to infection control have changed remarkably little,” said Dr. Andrew Simor, head of microbiology at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Simor was not involved in the study. “And the outcomes, as a result, have gone in the wrong direction.” The survey was conducted in 2006 by researchers from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., and was a follow-up to an earlier survey conducted in 1999. Both were funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada. The results, which will be published in the December issue of the American Journal of Infection Control, showed that while hospitals reported an increase in staff devoted to infection control, increasing numbers of patients fell prey to hospital-acquired infections. There were 5.2 cases of MRSA per 1,000 hospital admissions in 2005, up from two per 1,000 in 1999. There was also an upward trend in C. difficile infections, and the number of hospitals reporting new cases of infection with VRE soared. “We have to roll up our sleeves,” said lead author Dr. Dick Zoutman, head of infection control at Kingston General Hospital. But while the numbers don’t look good, the director of infectious disease prevention and control with Ontario’s public health agency raised a couple of important caveats. Dr. Michael Gardam suggested hiring new infection control staff is only one step in improving a hospital’s infection control performance. Real improvement requires a commitment and effort from all those involved in patient care in an institution, he said – and that takes time. “Rome wasn’t built in a day,” Gardam said. “You need to have more infection control practitioners. And you need to bring about culture change. And just doing the resources side of things I don’t believe will actually get you there.” Gardam also suggested the numbers might have been worse but for the injection of resources that followed the 2003 SARS outbreak and the C. difficile crisis, which first came to light in 2004. “Probably we are having an impact, we are slowing the increase,” said Gardam, who was not involved in the study. “But we’re not actually achieving a real steady state and we’re not actually seeing a decrease.” That’s especially worrying given the current state of the economy, said both Zoutman and Simor, who noted that infection control efforts are an easy target when hospitals are trying to cut costs. “I’m concerned now that it’s more challenging economic times … that we don’t lose (sight of) this,” said Zoutman. “Because it’s a false economy. It’s penny wise, pound foolish.” “
 and don’t you dare get sick and go to a Hospital you might have to find out what the doctors, nurses, hospital and Medicare are really like now too

What they often do call news is mere lies, spin doctors, not real facts

 

cbcnews

– Its is undeniable reality that most of Churches today, at least over half,  are still   often cultural, social  groups, not real Christian Churches, and that includes both the white and black, ethnic churches.

– Obama election shows deep racial divide in church or the deep theological divides? or what is accepted in one denomination can not be accepted in others. The liberal churches clearly voted for Obama.

As posted on the net.

Obama election shows deep racial or a religious divide in church supposedly says ” The Associated Press – NEW YORK (AP) – The barrier-crossing election of Barack Obama did little to bridge the deep racial divide in American churches. In fact, some clergy say it has only served to underscore their differences. While nonwhite Christians voted overwhelmingly for Obama, most white Christians backed John McCain, according to exit polls. The Rev. Al Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, the denomination’s flagship school, said white evangelicals backed McCain because of his opposition to abortion rights, not because of the race of either candidate. According to Associated Press exit polls, 34 percent of white Protestants voted for Obama, while 65 percent went with McCain. Obama won the overall Roman Catholic vote, but white Catholics backed McCain by a slim majority, 52 percent to 47 percent. Among white Christians, the racial gap was most pronounced with evangelicals: 74 percent backed McCain, 24 percent backed Obama. The pattern is not new and fits the larger trend of white voters overall, the majority of whom voted for McCain..” ignores the fact the white Christians  tend to be from the more traditional established Christian  churches.

– Religious  White  people’s  racial values was, is not the only issue for many of them now still not supporting Obama. Many white people still also had voted for Obama, and note this that many white people, rightfully or wrongfully,  oppose Obama’s socialism which they tend to  seem to see as as another form of communism too. Many religious persons still do see Obama rather rightfully as a non Christian

-Also the Black Christians and clearly wrongfully had supported their own  race over adequate religious values  for Obama’s reality of being a true Christian is still very much debatable. He supports drinking alcohol, gays, abortion and who knows what, and  he is the first political candidate to be addressed as an Anti Christ by many because  of his inadequate Christian beliefs, or  because he  is a non Christian?

Ten Faith Factors for Election Night

1.How Many Obamagelicals Are There? – It might seem farfetched that a socialist-terror-lovin’-pro-abortion candidate like Obama could win any evangelical Christians but he’s been courting them fervently since he began his presidential run. The key the 40% of evangelicals who call themselves “moderate” or “liberal.” Point of reference: John Kerry won 21% of white evangelicals, Gore 18%. Bill Clinton in 1996 won 26%.    

 

2.  Will Palin Turn Out the “Religious Right”? — By picking Sarah Palin, John McCain gambled that she’d be able to rev up the evangelical “base.” Even as her popularity has fallen generally, evangelicals still love her (some even believing she was sent to battle the anti-Christ.) Assuming most conservative evangelicals vote for McCain, the second question is: how many will show up? Point of reference: white evangelicals accounted for 23% of the electorate in 2004.

3. Do Midwestern Evangelicals Split With Their Brethren? — Recent polls have showed Obama trailing badly among evangelicals in Florida and Colorado but doing quite well with them in Michigan, Ohio and

Pennsylvania. If he succeeds there, he may have tapped into regional differences in style, theology and politics and launch a new era in faith-and-politics punditry, in which we no longer talk about “the evangelical vote” as a geographically uniform phenomenon.4. Will Catholics Ignore Their Bishops? – The overall Catholic vote has gone with the popular vote winner every election since 1968. Catholic Bishops have been urging Catholic voters to vote for pro-life candidates but a majority of Catholic voters are now pro-choice so it remains to be seen what influence the church will have. (Obama is also winning with the 100-year-old-nuns bloc) Another factor in Obama’s favor: a higher percentage of the Catholic vote will be Latino this year. Last election, George W. Bush won the Catholic 52%-46%.

 

5. Can Obama Finally Bowl a Strike With Skeptical White Catholics? – During the primaries, Obama did poorly with white Catholics, often working class ethnics or their offspring. Remember his feeble attempt to curry favor through bowling? They tend to be culturally conservative and haven’t voted for a Democrat since 1996. On the other hand, they’re especially concerned about the economy this year, and Joe Biden has been trying to bond with them as a fellow “cultural Catholics.” Point of reference: In 2004, Bush won 56% of white Catholics, Kerry 43%.

6. Will Whitebread Protestants Back the Black Guy? – Recent polls show Democrats gaining with a group that had leaned Republican for most of the past few decades – Mainline Protestants. It appears that while Sarah Palin energized evangelicals, she may have alienated some Mainliners. In 2004, they went for President George W. Bush 54%-46%.

7. Will Latino Protestants Vote Their Values or the Pocketbook? – One positive trend for Obama will likely be the shift of Latinos from the Republican side, where they resided in 2004, to the Democrats. The hidden religious story: most of the shift is driven by Latino Protestants. Many are evangelical and liked Bush’s Christian faith and his conservative positions on social issues (gay marriage, abortion) but have shifted to Obama because of the economy and concerns about immigration.

8. How Will the Kinda-Sorta Religious Vote? – In recent elections, the most religious you were, the more likely you were to vote Republican. This is known as the God Gap, which will still certainly exist. But watch for two things: among weekly churchoers how big is McCain’s margin? Bush won that group 61%-39% Second, Kerry last time beat Bush among more occasional churchgoers 53%-47%. Will Obama increase that margin?

9. Will Jews Schlep to Republican Side? – This only really matters in

Florida, and even there it doesn’t matter as much as you’d think (Jews made up 5% of the electorate there in 2004). Early polls had Obama struggling among Jews – in part because of fears about his former church’s connections to Louis Farrakhan — but more recently he’s caught up, possibly because Jews fear that Sarah Palin is an extreme evangelical. Or possibly the Sarah Silverman factor. Jews reportedly went about 75%-25% for Kerry.10. Will the GOP Become the ROP? – Will Republicans become the Religiously Oriented Party? In 2004, white evangelicals made up 36% of Bush voters.
Will that go up or down? If it becomes an even more dominant force within the party, how will that shape either the way McCain governs if he wins or, if he loses, how the Republicans re-invent themselves.

Carla Hinton  Religion Editor http://blog.newsok.com/religionandvalues/2008/10/31/389

so what do you say  about the faith factor…

Though the economy clearly was the defining issue of the election, Obama forged a new coalition by luring millions of religious left voters who had avoided Democrats in recent years.

In short:

He narrowed the God Gap. Bush beat Kerry among weekly church-goers by 61%-39%. McCain is beating Obama 54%-44% Most of that gain appears to have come from Protestants rather than Catholics

 

He won Catholics back. Early exit polls indicate he won 54% of the Catholic vote compared to 45% for John McCain. George W. Bush won the Catholic vote 52%-46%. Most of those gains came from Catholics who don’t attend mass weekly.

He also improved among white Catholics, according to the early exit polls. Bush got 56%-43% As of now, McCain lead by just 51%-49% This was despite an aggressive push by more than 50 Bishops to encourage Catholics to focus on abortion as the central issue.

He man real gainst among Evangelicals. Evangelicals and Born Again Christians made up a greater portion of the electorate this year than last election but that didn’t all accrue to McCain’s benefit, as predict. Obama improved slightly on a national level, getting 25% compared to Kerry’s 21%

But far more important, he made significant progress in the pivotal rustbelt states that won him the election. For instance, evangelicals flooded the polls in Ohio and Obama significantly improved on Kerry’s showing.

He attracted more Mainline Protestants – Though shifting toward the center in recent years, mainline Protestants — once a core of the Republican party — – still went for the Republicans in 2004. The exit polls didn’t ask specifically about mainline Protestants but it appears Obama improved slightly with this group..

He energized the lightly religious. Though secular voters already voted Democratic, they did so by an even bigger margin this year. Even more important, a quarter of the electorate says they go to worship services but only a few times a year. Kerry won that group with 54%-45%. Obama won 61%-38%

BREAKING: Catholic Shift to Obama

The rap on Obama during the primaries was that he couldn’t win because he struggled with Catholics. Apparently, he got past that. Early exit polls indicate he won 54% of the Catholic vote compared to 45% for John McCain….

Obama Luring Rest Belt Evangelicals But Not Southerners

Obama seems to have made far more progress with Born Again Christians in rust belt states than in the South. Based on preliminary exit polls: Florida: 78%-20% (McCain-Obama) Virginia: 78%-21% Ohio: 70%-29% Indiana: 66%-32%

BREAKING: Weekly Churchgoers vs. Occasionals

One thing that puzzles me about these numbers: Obama’s progress among Catholics is with those who don’t attend mass weekly. But among Protestants, he improved among those who do attend weekly. One possible theory: abortion. Mass-attending Catholics are more likely…

Evangelcial Pastors do not have to break the law.

  
0noplace1 

 
“Endorsing from the Pulpit Pastors launch challenge of IRS rules on endorsements.    Pastor Gus Booth remembers when he used to simply encourage his congregation of 150 in Warroad, Minn., to vote each Election Day. Now, he thinks it’s important to tell them which candidate should get their vote. On Sunday, as part of the “Pulpit Initiative” organized by an Arizona-based conservative Christian legal group, Booth is set to join dozens of clergy nationwide in challenging Internal Revenue Service rules that prohibit churches from politicking by supporting or opposing candidates. “If we can tell you what to do in the bedroom, we can certainly tell you what to do in the voting booth,” said the Minnesota minister, an evangelical leader of a nondenominational church, who expects to endorse Republican John McCain during his “Pulpit Freedom Sunday” sermon. “The voting booth is not some sort of sacred cow that you can’t talk about. You’re supposed to bring the gospel into every area of life.” The Alliance Defense Fund announced the initiative last May as a way to challenge IRS rules that date to 1954. ADF spokesman Greg Scott said the organization contacted “pastors, priests and rabbis from every major denomination,” and knows of 33 clergy in 23 states who intend to take part on Sunday. At least one clergyman who was contacted joined in filing a complaint against the initiative with the IRS. “We’re basically aiming to get these rules declared unconstitutional so that pastors have the right to speak freely from the pulpit without fear of punishment,” said Dale Schowengerdt, legal counsel for the ADF. “http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2008/septemberweb-only/139-41.0.html
 
“Pulpit Initiative About Freedom, not Politics The purpose of the Alliance Defense Fund’s Pulpit Initiative is to restore the right of pastors to speak freely from the pulpit without fear of punishment by the government for doing what churches do: speak on any number of cultural and societal issues from a biblical perspective. The purpose of the Pulpit Initiative is not – as some have said to confuse the issue – about whether pastors should or should not “endorse” candidates. The issue with which ADF is concerned is over who regulates what may be said from the pulpit.

So, the Pulpit Initiative is not about…

· turning the church into a Political Action Committee
· allowing contributions to candidates
· any particular candidate or political party
· “political” speech
· endorsing or opposing candidates

The Pulpit Initiative is…

· a bold defense of the First Amendment’s Establishment, Free Exercise, and Free Speech clauses
· about protecting core religious expression
· only related to what a pastor says from his pulpit, for example, on a Sunday morning (i.e., not about voter guides, candidate appearances, or other “political” activities)

Certainly, congregations and a church’s leadership can tell pastors they don’t want names of candidates spoken from the pulpit. But that is very different from government censorship. To government regulators, today’s “Gospel” may well be words that are tomorrow’s “politics.” ADF has already defended Americans in many cases where publicly preaching words straight from the Gospel has led to censorship…and even jail.  The bottom line is that no enforcement agency of the federal government should be telling a pastor what he can or cannot say from his pulpit about the Bible and his church’s teaching on the issues of the hour – even if the pastor’s sermon applies Scripture and church teaching to candidates and elections. Such agencies certainly cannot condition tax-exempt status–a status churches have always been constitutionally guaranteed since our founding–on the surrender of cherished First Amendment rights. In fact, for 166 years, churches freely preached directly on political candidates’ qualifications for office. That was no problem when the Constitution was signed, or when the first Commissioner of Internal Revenue was appointed in 1862, or when the federal income tax was authorized by the 16th Amendment in 1913. Nor were churches transformed into political machines. When the IRS code was amended in 1954 to ban “intervention” in political campaigns, it was an act of political retaliation by then-Sen. Lyndon Johnson against two anti-communist groups. It had nothing to do with “church politicking,” and scholars agree that churches were not the target of the regulation. ADF has the U.S. Constitution and the weight of American history on its side. Those who oppose the Pulpit Initiative have yet to make one constitutionally-derived argument against it. It is ironic that they laud the “separation of church and state” in opposition to the Pulpit Initiative, but by opposing the initiative, are asking for continued government control and censorship of a pastor’s sermon.The pulpit is no place for government regulators.

Pastors do not have to break the law. They can merely live by faith in God to provide and now discontinue from giving out tax receipts on all donations and thus be free to speak as any ordinary citizen can. The Bible does not prohibit them from doing this now as well l ike Rev George Mueller did too. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/05/28/rev-george-muller/

 
  see first https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/03/27/ontario-judge-orders-website-to-reveal-identity/
It is still up to the courts or the Human Rights commissions  firstly to confirm, to define what is actually libelous, slanderous, a hate email message..  and someone’s else’s  statement and opinions  on the subject does not count. But to be on the safe side if you want to avoid court costs, ligation, if you are unsure if what you write is libel, slanderous, prosecutable better not post it on the net. Wrongfully accusing someone of posting a hate message or being a racists clearly can  be challenged in courts as a hate message itself and prosecutable.

The Bible Prohibits Affirmative Action?

How some people even professing Christains falsely, deliberately do still  overlook that Jesus came to help the poor and needy persons is way beyond me!
 
Hey we seem all to be able read into the Bible anything you want but the reality, for all of the people who collect the tithe, the poor and priests now they  were all on Biblical social welfare, and they were not allowed to own property just as much as  anyone on social aid today too.. 1/7 of the tithe was to be given to the poor, and the role of deacons was to help poor people with social aid..
 
Just wait till many of you guys get to be over 45 and get cancer, diabetes, heart attacks and cannot work and how gladly you will go on social aid..
 
So do not bash poor people for you will walk in their footsteps next to learn compassion.. I personally in my life now have seen many Christians in churches go that route next .Once  Proud Bullies, bashers, abusers included..
 

and he profess to be an evangelical Christian?

  
   
Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper

  The Conservative government announced just over $19-billion of pledges
in the past three months before the Prime Minister, Stephen Harper…. 

 
While far better than he used to be at retail politics (glad-handing, cocktail party small talk, burger flipping, one-on-ones in strip mall parking lots and so on), Stephen Harper still looks mildly inconvenienced when out on the hustings.

so you mean Harper now  he is better and happier when he is giving our alcohol  to his alcoholic buddies too? 

it also sounds rightfully like more bribery, corruptions to me..  

 A bar tenderer and he professes to be an evangelical Christian? who are supposed to be abstainers, so  you cannot believe anything you hear from politicians now theses days especially the new Conservative ones in Canada.
 

TORONTO (Reuters) – Canada’s ruling Conservatives have lost some of their momentum in swing parliamentary districts since Prime Minister Stephen Harper triggered an October 14 general election, a poll released on Tuesday suggested.

The survey, conducted by Strategic Counsel for The Globe and Mail and CTV, showed Harper’s party had gained support in 45 battleground districts since the last general election, which brought a Conservative minority government to power in January 2006.

But opposition parties have regained some ground since Harper launched a new election campaign on Sunday, according to the survey.

The rolling poll tracks voting preferences in pivotal electoral districts in the provinces of Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia.

The latest three-day poll was taken Saturday to Monday. It indicated that a wave of support that seemed to be building for the Conservatives may have ebbed a little when compared with results of the previous survey, taken Thursday to Saturday.

The surveys are conducted daily, with three-day running tallies comprising a poll of 1,325 Canadians. The results appeared on The Globe’s website.

Some say that All democracy  is supposed to separate church and state ??

since when.. the lie the devil tells you.. only liars, perverse, immoral liberals can pass and enforce laws.. dream on!

Right wing evangelicals, pentecostals now have the same rights, free speech too as any of the others

there was even a Roman emperor who was a professing Christian

the Church and secular state persons will be separate only in Hell..

Good people work within the system to try to make it better..  and not worse…  I do.. Joseph did and so did Daniel and others.. I pray you will see reality..

(Rom 12:2 KJV)  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

I have now learned along time ago that the bad men and bad women like to disguise themselves as good persons too and they like to ,  want to have all the sole rights, the rights to do all the talking as well, and all it takes for these evil persons to continue to prosper is for the good persons to do nothing, well real  life does not work that well, I thus do not mind, do not hesitate to expose the liars, cheats, thieves, con men, imposters and to rightfully demand their persecution and incarceration too, no matter who they they they are, or how important they now do think they are. Those whom I love, I talk too, I also  do chasten and rebuke them openly, without partiality, even asking them rightfully to repent. And if you claim to be a Christian, I have a right to be a fruit inspector, to demand you precise what you preach to others, live it, that your Christianity be fully visible and that ye not be rather another one of those much too many hypocrites now as well

Too often women have been put down by men..

 
 
0poorwmn

 

Give me the direct verse that says women are called only to be evangelists The word missionary has the same root in Greek as apostle; both mean one sent forth. Today’s missionary is only a true apostle if he has been sent specifically by God, and if this apostolic authority is operating in his ministry. “The word apostle in the Greek is apostollos or “one sent forth” as an ambassador of the Gospel. An apostle is a minister sent directly by God to do a specific work. A number of the saints of God and even Jesus himself were called apostles in the New Testament. The Apostle is defined as a messenger, and yet the same description is almost given to the Evangelist too, the difference is the word special is added to the Apostle.. Even the office of elders is mis-defined today, and is limited to being pastors, and spiritual guides, when we all can know that in the new testament, the apostles, and prophets, were also called elders now.,.. not just the pastors or evangelists, teachers.. In the he New testament Evangelists, plural term too, they were also healers, not just preachers, traveling missionaries. Read the Bible for yourself and see this fact, truth. (Rom 16:7 KJV) Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellow prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me. Imagine that Junia is a woman, and is proclaimed to be an additional apostle as well…

As far as I am concerned a Women can be a Church Pastor if she has her husband’s permission.. and even  the vice president of the United States, or a President. We can use more Women like her now in Canadian Politics for it has been too clearly evident that the men have not being doing a good enough job or we would not be having so many minority governments, and useless elections in Canada.

In the Old Testament Miriam was a prophetess (Exodus 15:20) as was Huldah (2 Kings 22:14) and Noadiah (Neh. 6:14).  Prophetesses from God spoke with authority and was ordained by God that they did so.  But, most pertinent to the topic at hand is Deborah who was a judge in Israel (Judges 4:4-5).  Deborah exercised governmental power over the nation of Israel.  She was most definitely in a place of authority over men in government and there is no condemnation of her being a judge found anywhere in scripture.

But, some might ask if Deborah was in a place of authority in Israel, why can’t a woman be in a place of authority in the church?

(1 Tim. 3:2; Titus 1:6).  Also, 1 Tim. 2:11-12 says, “Let a woman quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. 12 But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. 13 For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve.”

(Rom 16:7 KJV)  Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellowprisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me.

Well anyway there was a women Apostle, Junia, note worthy too amongst the Apostles, and she had a place of authority.. an apostle is a Missionary.. women can be mssionaries on the foreign mission field.. but not in a local church? it all sounds confusing to me too.

I thought that Christian women also were not allowed to have short hair cuts, and what do husbands allow it in the  church now too?  A variety of more fundamental Christian religions discourage short hair on women, some congregations prohibit hair cuts beyond a trim for women. It tends to vary congregation to congregation; as opposed to being an aspect of a particular denomination. I know the belief is based on passages in the old testament, likely the those that indicate that women should not try to look like men. These denominations also tend to prohibit pants on women, jewelry beyond a watch and wedding band, make-up, etc. Are they extremists or legalists too?

I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. 4 Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. 5 And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is just as though her head were shaved. 6 If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head. 7 A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. 8 For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; 9 neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. 10 For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head.
11 In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12 For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God. 13 Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14 Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, 15 but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering. 16 If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice—nor do the churches of God. I Corinthians 11:3-6

1 Cor. 11:2-16 – essentially, women should cover their heads in church, and men should not. Some interpret this as being a thing of long vs. short hair.

1 Peter 3:3 – women shouldn’t put too much emphasis on outer beauty, like braiding their hair.

One of the most popular views today is that the head covering was actually the woman’s hair. The exegesis of the text that adopts this view keys in on verse 15. “…but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering.”  It is quite plain.

It reveals that the early generation of believers understood the head covering to be a cloth veil—not long hair. As Tertullian quoted in an earlier post indicated, even the women who did not wish to follow Paul’s teaching were not claiming that Paul was talking about long hair. Rather, they simply wore a small cloth in minimal obedience to his teaching.

Numbers 6:1-21 – Nazarite vow – the Nazarite shaves his head at the beginning of the vow, and then cannot cut his hair for the duration of the vow. The character Samson (as in Samson and Delilah) was a Nazarite. in Numbers 6: 5,6, and 13 we read, “All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth himself unto the Lord, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow. All the days that he separateth himself unto the lord he shall come at no dead body. and this is the law of the Nazarite, when the days of his separation are fulfilled: he shall be brought unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.”

or was it men not being allowed to have long hair?  I Corinthians 11:14 says, “Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?”

.

Has God called pastors to be CEOs of religious organizations, or has he called men to be spiritual leaders over the churches of Christ? Neither… the elders run the church, and pastors are just one of the many church elders.. Even if she is a woman,, BASED ON ISOLATED, DISTORTED VERSES SOME PERSONS WOULD HAVE US MAKE a false Positive Confession of our faith. God still Is Not A Respecter of Persons is a truth we need to always remember too    https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2009/07/20/kathryn-kuhlman/

Elections Canada 2008

 

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/12/11/it-is-still-canadas-prime-minister-stephen-harper-who-is-undemocratic/

Canada’s new Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper, one step forward and two steps backwards,  has too often  shown he will do anything to cling to power, he cannot be trusted to keep his promises. Prime Minister Stephen Harper, supposedly weary of waiting for the opposition to bring down his minority government, broke  his own promises of a fixed election date and pulled the election plug himself Sunday to end 31 months of the new Conservative rule.  This move sends Canadians to the polls for the third time in four years. And they likely will return anyway another new minority government but anyway it will be good to see some of the present pretentious, useless federal cabinet Ministers and their associates lose their jobs.. especially all those friends they had hired now and had lying said they would not too.. so what else is new. As you can see by many many internet posts, I for one have dealt with many of them, and they were almost all clearly useless, pretentious, inadequate..  the Conservatives are known to be liars, not just alcoholics? Against the backdrop of a clearly weakening economy, Harper asked Gov. Gen. Michaelle Jean to dissolve Canada’s 39th Parliament so that a national vote can be held Oct. 14 — the day after Thanksgiving.

What we all do need to be reminded of what we are not thankful for.. the too often more broken promises by liars for we still seem to elect Liars into office, and I hope we can break this tradition soon! And please do stop electing the clearly pretend Christians now as well for Prime Ministers too.

Canada Votes – Election 2008 Harper hopes this goes by unnoticed
 During the last federal election in 2006, Stephen Harper’s Conservatives accused the Liberal government of treating public money as a “party election fund” and taking part in a “vote-buying” spree thanks to nearly $20 billion in promises. This time around, starting June 2 and running through the months leading up to the campaign kickoff, the Conservative government itself pledged $15 billion. http://lfpress.ca/newsstand/canadavotes/news/2008/09/14/6759361-sun.html
 
“We’ve been promised things before.” by Harper and many of his promises were not kept ..

Victims of deadly C. difficile outbreak seek right to sue Quebec hospital –  MONTREAL – Victims of two outbreaks of C. difficile at a hospital near Montreal are asking the court for permission to sue the hospital for millions of dollars. A class-action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of the victims, both dead and living, as well as the Association to Defend Victims of Nosocomial Infections. Lawyer Jean-Pierre Menard is expected to announce further details during a news conference Thursday morning in Montreal. C. difficile is a common bacterial infection in hospitals but it can be especially deadly in people weakened by illness. Sixteen people died at the Honore-Mercier Hospital in St-Hyacinthe after contracting C. difficile between May and November of 2006. Quebec coroner Catherine Rudel-Tessier conducted an investigation into the deaths and found the hospital’s administration partly to blame for failing to prevent the spread of the infections.

 Perverts define this Health problem as a superbug problem, but the real problem is really the sick  people who do not wash their hands when they go to the bathroom, or before they eat, when they serve others and also the cheap hospital administrators, governments  who do a bad job of keeping hospital clean, or disinfecting them from,  shit, urine, etc.,..

“The expertise exists — relatively close by — to help Ontario set up a system aimed at getting a handle on the C. difficile crisis. The  opportunistic superbug has been connected to several hundred deaths in  Ontario since 2006. Quebec, responding to a C. diff crisis of its own that started in early  2004, developed and put in place an interhospital information-sharing  strategy, along with mandatory reporting of C. diff cases and intense  scrutiny of hospitals regarding everything from reporting structures to  toilet-cleaning methods. The Quebec model has been recommended to other provinces, including Ontario.  It’s time-consuming and requires a high level of open communication, as well  as monitoring, data interpretation and problem-solving. But Quebec has  demonstrated it can be done.” http://www.thespec.com/Opinions/article/406150   TheSpec.com – Opinions – Quebec C. diff system works    July 21, 2008  The Hamilton Spectator

But copying the Quebec program will not work that easy in Ontario still.. Quebecers historically have been people caring persons, more compassionate persons now too, regardless of the costs,  unlike the too often money hungry  persons of Ontario..

Subject: C. difficile- Shit diseases
I have been writing now over 2 years to the federal and provincial governments, health Ministers, even on the net  that the Shit diseases has not been adequately looked after in Hospitals even and that one death from this disease, most of which could have been prevented is unacceptable still too

C. difficile needs a look  Toronto Star –   Ontarians have just learned the number of elderly patients who have died at Ontario hospitals from a virulent strain of the deadly superbug C. difficile has climbed to 463 in the past 30 months.

http://thenoncomformer.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!1AA26630DCCDE52D!573.entry   Me I still tell it like it is, honestly, even that Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty persons services everyone’s’ best interest, or the fact all of the federal Health Ministers in the last decade too now should have rightfully been hanged by the courts for even their unacceptable murder, manslaughter. About a decade ago when I started to use  the health system in Canada, in   Alberta and next in Quebec, I started at the wrong time too to next see what it really was like, inadequate and with much too many unacceptable shortcomings too.

Ontario’s Jo Brant Hospital had begged for funds The governments falsely play with our lives.. “Last September, a Quebec coroner investigating C. difficile deaths in Saint-Hyacinthe concluded the principal problem that fuelled an outbreak there was management’s need to save money and its decision to skimp on prevention measures.  Clostridium difficile or C. difficile is a bacterium that causes diarrhea and more serious intestinal conditions such as colitis. It is the most common cause of infectious diarrhea in hospitalized patients in the industrialized world.  Control measures include extra housecleaning, cleaning patient rooms twice a day and making sure even the phones and light switches are cleaned with heavy duty products that kill C. difficile spores….  a number of factors contribute to C. difficile outbreaks including the severity of the disease, the abilities of the organism to live on surfaces for months, elderly patients, older hospitals with multi-bed rooms and overcrowding of facilities.    An infectious disease expert who fought on the front lines of the Quebec C. difficile outbreak that claimed thousands of  lives says it’s “surprising” Ontario has taken so long to target the infection. “It’s a bit surprising that Ontario, which is right next door to Quebec, would wait for so long to implement a basic surveillance system,” said Dr. Jacques Pepin, an infectious disease expert at Sherbrooke University. “It’s not very good.” A review of deaths by the Infection Prevention and Control Unit of the University Health Network in Toronto shows the outbreak ran from May 1, 2006, to Dec. 31, 2007, starting seven months earlier than originally thought, and that it was about four times as deadly.”  http://www.thespec.com/News/Local/article/365792C

This is not the dark ages!! wisen up ye all!!!
  
 (Rom 13:9 KJV)  For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
1 Cor 15:33 Do not be so deceived {and} misled! Evil companionships (communion, associations) corrupt {and} deprave good manners {and} morals {and} character.Gal 6:7 Do not be deceived {and} deluded {and} misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at (scorned, disdained, or mocked by mere pretensions or professions, or by His precepts being set aside.)   For whatever a man sows, that  is (also)  what he will reap. ( he can  reap too what others have sowed now too)

2 Tim 3:13 But wicked men and imposters will go on from bad to worse, deceiving {and} leading astray others and being deceived {and} led astray themselves.
