Canada’s too often bad Justice Ministers

 

Tell the too often rather lying spin doctors, Conservatives, Liberals, all of  the Justice ministers and special prosecutors that they do  need to avoid all appearance of evil, not just evil itself still.

Over and over again and one too many of Canada’s Justice ministers have been forced to resign from their offices, likley cause they were really bad cops and bad  lawyers now too..

NB justice minister resigns over privacy issue CBC.ca  Justice Minsiter Bernard LeBlanc resigned Thursday after being accused of violating the privacy rights of a Fredericton-area woman. There have in the last few months been too many other NB cabinet Minister’s resignations now as well.. LeBlanc is the fourth minister to step down in the last seven months.  Former justice minister Michael Murphy and former environment minister T.J. Burke have also left the Liberal cabinet. 

 It is sad that too many lawyers hoping to become judges next do now  make political contributions to the party in power too… and it seems to work?

 Election financing allegations force B.C.’s top cop to quit cabinet The Canadian Press –  VANCOUVER, B.C. – British Columbia’s top cop has found himself on the other side of the criminal justice system, facing an RCMP investigation that has forced him to resign from his post as solicitor general. Kash Heed, a former police chief and star Liberal candidate in the May 2009 vote, announced his resignation Friday, citing allegations that his campaign office violated advertising and finance rules in the Elections Act. RCMP confirmed a commercial crimes unit investigation and the criminal justice branch announced a special prosecutor has been appointed to oversee the case. Heed said he has no idea what allegations prompted investigation, but he was adamant that, whatever they are, he had nothing to do with it.”I am absolutely confident that I’ve done nothing wrong, that’s why I’m going to fully co-operate with the RCMP and it is that reason that I’m stepping aside to maintain the integrity of this office and to maintain my integrity,” he said at a hastily called news conference at his constituency office in Vancouver on Friday afternoon.”I have no idea what this is about, but I can tell you again, I have done nothing wrong.” Neither Heed nor the RCMP are revealing many details.Heed said he first learned about the probe at the end of March, from RCMP. But he said they originally told him he was not being investigated.That changed earlier this week when he said he was told the RCMP were now looking into whether he had any role in the allegations, and on Wednesday he learned a special prosecutor had been appointed to the case.In fact, Terrence L. Robertson was appointed special prosecutor in January, and the RCMP started their investigation within weeks of last May’s election, which returned the Liberals to power for a third term.Insp. Tim Shields said the investigation was prompted by a complaint to the province’s chief electoral officer, who forwarded the allegation to RCMP last June.Shields said a report to Crown counsel will be complete by June, noting a one-year statue of limitations on Election Act violations.”The allegations are concerning the campaign office of Minister Kash Heed, and although there’s more than one person who can potentially be involved, we’re not going to be naming names,” Shields told reporters.”It’s a very sensitive investigation, and the priority of police is to get to the truth and discover the facts.”Shields said several people from Heed’s campaign office are under investigation, but declined to elaborate.

Heed is the third Liberal solicitor general forced to resign amid allegations of wrongdoing in the past two years.

John Les resigned from the post in March 2008 after it was revealed he was part of an RCMP investigation that alleged he improperly benefited from land deals while he was serving as mayor of Chilliwack.

And John van Dongen resigned as solicitor general in April 2009 after it was revealed he lost his driver’s licence for numerous speeding tickets. He was serving as Superintendent of Motor Vehicles at the time.

Attorney General Mike de Jong will fill the position for now, although Heed said he plans to return to his cabinet post once his name is cleared. He will continue to represent his riding in the meantime.

Heed’s profile rose while he was an RCMP district commander with a view to reducing property crime in south Vancouver. He spearheaded the creation of the gang violence task force, and is credited with reducing gang-related violence by more than 40 per cent, according to his website. He became chief of the West Vancouver Police in 2007.But since announcing his entry into political life last year, Heed has been dogged by a defamation suit filed by a former West Vancouver officer.Heed has spent his time in cabinet championing increased accountability for the RCMP, demanding the force change the way it investigate itself or risk losing its contract for provincial policing in B.C.Jane Thornthwaite acknowledged in February she made a mistake after she was stopped by police for drunk driving.

Heed is B.C.’s third top cop to step aside Vancouver Sun -As he announced his resignation Friday, Kash Heed became the third consecutive solicitor-general in almost two years to step aside amid controversy.

 Mon May 3, 8:29 PM  By The Canadian Press VANCOUVER – Former solicitor general Kash Heed took a giant step towards returning to the B.C. cabinet Monday after being cleared of wrongdoing in an investigation that resulted in numerous Criminal Code charges and Election Act violations against three of his former campaign workers. Heed, insisting he did nothing wrong, hinted broadly he would like to get back to his cabinet duties. He resigned last month after announcing he was part of an RCMP investigation involving irregularities dating back to the May 2009 B.C. election. Heed, a former West Vancouver police chief and a first-time candidate who was personally recruited by Premier Gordon Campbell, won the Vancouver-Fraserview riding and was appointed to cabinet heading the law-and-order posts of Public Safety and Solicitor General. “It’s up to the premier to decide what he wants to do,” said Heed. “I’m serving the people of the province of British Columbia.” The charges are related to election pamphlets distributed during the provincial election last spring, as well as an election financing report filed on Heed’s behalf. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100503/national/solicitor_general_resigns_charges

Tue May 4, 8:38 PM  VANCOUVER (CBC) – The special prosecutor who cleared newly reinstated solicitor general Kash Heed of wrongdoing has resigned. Terrence Robertson quit the job on Tuesday, saying his law firm, Harper Grey LLP, donated $1,000 to Heed’s political campaign. The news came just hours after B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell announced Heed had been reinstated as solicitor general. On Monday, it was announced that Robertson’s investigation into Heed’s 2009 election campaign cleared Heed of any wrongdoing. Heed had stepped down from office in April when it was revealed the RCMP was conducting an investigation into his campaign in the Vancouver-Fraserview riding. The investigation was related to an unregistered election campaign brochure, which accused the NDP of planning to legalize heroin and cocaine and said the party would consider instituting an inheritance tax. Two of Heed’s campaign workers were charged with a variety of offences, but it was determined Heed had no prior knowledge of the pamphlets. In a letter outlining the reasons for his resignation, Robertson said he was aware of the contribution before taking on the investigation, but said he “did not believe that it was a conflict of interest” that would preclude him from acting as special prosecutor. Robertson said that upon further reflection, he has concluded that continuing as special prosecutor would provoke “comment from the public and the media” as to whether he is sufficiently independent.  … Speaking at a news conference Tuesday evening, the newly reinstated Heed indicated he would retain his post as solicitor general. Heed said he has done nothing wrong. “It was reviewed by an independent special prosecutor. The findings exonerated me and I’m living by that right now and we are ready to move forward.” Heed said he has never met Robertson or had any dealings with his law firm.  Attorney General Mike de Jong told reporters he was disappointed by Robertson’s resignation. “It’s frustrating, you know? I’m angry,” he said. “We have an independent process that everyone relies upon the public relies on it, the government relies upon it, and then something like this happens.” De Jong said a new prosecutor would be appointed in the case. Meanwhile, New Democrat MLA Mike Farnworth said he was shocked when he heard the news. “I was speechless, I was stunned and at first I thought, ‘This is a joke.'”Farnworth said both Heed’s exoneration and the criminal charges laid against his campaign workers are “tainted.” “As far as I’m concerned, the premier has no choice but to reverse his decision and Mr. Heed must be out of cabinet immediately … [Heed] has no credibility staying on as solicitor general,” he said. “The fact of the matter is that the special prosecutor who exonerated him is a donor to the B.C. Liberal Party and the idea that that was not disclosed at the beginning or that somehow that could not be seen as a conflict I find unbelievable.” Farnworth is calling for a complete review of the investigation. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100504/canada/canada_britishcolumbia_bc_heed_special_prosecutor_resigns  
 

New prosecutor appointed in Heed controversy  Vancouver Sun A senior Vancouver lawyer has been appointed as an independent special prosecutor into alleged offences involving the campaign office of Kash Heed, the former solicitor-general of British Columbia.

New special prosecutor to review Heed case Globe and Mail

 
 

and the mad BC Liberal, justice circus of improprieties goes on and one.. Anyone who is honest doubts the finding when he finds out this overall was not a   independent review basically, but a Liberal one.. Can  we really thus trust this government to top produce any  kind of decent justice?

So here is the obvious.. we need now 2 independent investigators to investigate the original independent investigator now as well  and to find out how long did he know that his firm supported the Liberals and that they had donated the money to the Liberals as well? before he was appointed too? Is anyone there honest, not crooked now too?
 
B.C. solicitor general steps down… again The Canadian Press – Thu May 6, 12:45 AM   VICTORIA – The circus is back in town in British Columbia with the star attraction being former solicitor general Kash Heed performing a manoeuvre of high difficulty, the triple political flip flop. In less than a month, the former West Vancouver police chief and star Liberal recruit resigned his cabinet post, was briefly reinstated, only to quit again the next day. Heed, on the backbenches Wednesday after less than a day back in cabinet, said he felt jubilation when Premier Gordon Campbell reinstated him after a police investigation cleared him of any wrongdoing in the scandal that resulted in charges against three of his campaign officials. But the triumph sank to desperation after the man that cleared him, independent special prosecutor Terrence Robertson, quit the case after acknowledging he himself may have the appearance of a conflict of interest because his law firm donated $1,000 to Heed’s campaign. 
 
VANCOUVER – They’re supposed to be the buffer between government and any appearance of conflict of interest. But when the special prosecutor who cleared British Columbia’s solicitor general of election wrongdoing stepped down this week, he did just the opposite. Terrance Robertson resigned and revealed that his law firm had donated to Heed’s campaign. Yet the names of at least 15 of the 35 lawyers on the list of potential special prosecutors or their firms are also on Liberal party donation lists. This includes lawyers involved in some of the province’s most high-profile cases, including the legislature raid case and a lawyer who has been appointed to argue against Canada’s polygamy laws.  The revelations give at least the appearance of conflict of interest and fuel distrust among the public, legal observers say. Stephen Owen, a former provincial ombudsman and former deputy attorney general who was involved in setting up B.C.’s special prosecutor system in the early 1990s, said the controversy highlights the need for more vigilant vetting.  In the Heed case, Owen said the province should appoint a new special prosecutor to start the process from the beginning, rather than simply picking up where Robertson left off.  “They need to appoint another special prosecutor . . . to redo the whole investigation to see if charges should be laid, including against Mr. Heed,” said Owen, who now works for the University of British Columbia. “The public should have full confidence that there are no such conflicts. And it’s only fair to Mr. Heed, because there will be a cloud over the fact that he wasn’t charged.” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100506/national/special_prosecutors_conflict

Old news RCMP still boozing and driving too..

 

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,”   http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/101031/health/health_eu_med_dangerous_alcohol
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..

 

Kamloops Mountie faces impaired charges CBC – Tue Apr 6, 10:27 PM A nine-year veteran RCMP officer faces impaired driving charges after a car flipped over in a crash near Kamloops early Saturday morning. “It appeared, from the preliminary investigation of the incident, that the lone occupant of the vehicle had driven off the road and hit protection poles surrounding a hydro box,” Const. Cheryl Bush said in a release Tuesday. “The vehicle then flipped onto its roof. The driver sustained no injuries as a result of this incident.” Investigators at the scene asked the officer, 29, for a breath sample and later said they would recommend charges to the Crown, police said. The identity of the officer, currently posted in Kamloops, has not been made public. The officer has been reassigned to administrative duties and will make his first court appearance on April 26 in Kamloops, Bush said

Obviously, except for the politicians of Canada, there needs to be a better screening device for those accepted into the RCMP.  Oh boy…here we go again. And how will they wash this one away?  MADD never seems to have anything to say when a cop is charged with DUI.  I wonder why?  What great role models the various members are presenting to the youth of this Country. We spend millions trying to educate people to not drink and drive and the people who enforce the law, are breaking that very law.  Looks like drinking isn’t just a RCMP problem it is spread into every police force around the world. The problem definitely needs to be researched.  I am starting to feel like the RCMP is almost as bad as the scum they are hired to protect us from http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2010/04/06/bc-kamloops-rcmp-impaired.html
Politicians, RCMP’s new image as being too often liars, drunk seems to be consistent.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/11/11/no-rcmp-alcoholics-it-seems/
 
Top Mounties failing in leadership role, watchdog says Globe and Mail –   RCMP brass are failing to live up to the legendary can-do spirit of the Mounties and are undermining the efforts of provincial divisions that are striving to modernize the force, watchdog Paul Kennedy said Wednesday.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/13/but-we-knew-all-that-already-about-the-rcmp/

Why do the police not prosecute the drunk drivers all year more consistently now too? “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. Do even the police do the same thing as well?

Many people openly tell me that I am to be personally  commended for trying to clean about the much too many pretentious , bad doctors, bad nurses, medical care givers, really bad social workers now too  in Montreal.. they encourage me to keep up the good work. 

I rightfully assume the bad guys and their supporters do not appreciate it and that is why they do not get back to me.
  
Here is the sad reality, when you confront the wicked unrepentant abusers, they do too often play dead, hard to get, they try to hide like ostriches, hoping that by ignoring you and me that the matter will go away.. but they can dream on. I am persistent.. relentless.. I do not allow abusers to get away.. all it takes for the wicked to keep on doing bad things is for the good person to do nothing about it.
 
Just when I thought I had seen it all, I by now seen all of life’s perversities and corruptions  I now this week do discover what I am also now often told by many people, nurses, medical workers, the common attempt of monetary theft   when any person is near death, by the relatives who do come out of the wood work to fight over the money never mind   now even waiting first for him to die.
 
And sadly in the process now  many other feminist supporters of her falsely had supported her in doing this here including  social workers, a head nurse, a local bank manager now too. And true to form, they are all being RIGHTFULLY full exposed embarrassingly by me in the process too.
  
Full public exposure and prosecution of the guilty still does serve  everyone best interest.
 
It all next makes very interesting reading on the internet for the whole world now to read about it as well..

 Get it very clear that I am no doctor so I can freely too complain very loudly to all persons, anyone I want too about anything I want to, even about any of the bad professionals, bad doctors and nurses, and hospital administrators, bad social services, and I do that and I continue will do that do the good of us all too. Better act properly on the matter before it gets worse and I escalate my complaints to all too.. and really you should have known that by now even too.
 
Does this below all meet your prior approvals? Well I got news for you it does not matter to me, I still can rightfully  write for myself to anyone I want too. No matter how embarrassing it is now for your so called professionals now too.

The public is also invited to share with the police anything they know about corruptions, abuses

 

QUEBEC – The Quebec elections chief wants to hear from a former justice minister who claims to have embarrassing information about fundraising within Premier Jean Charest’s Liberal party.  Marc Bellemare, who served in the Charest cabinet, has declared in media interviews that the governing party received generous donations from construction companies.  Corporate donations are illegal in Quebec, the construction industry has been inundated with allegations of corruption, and demands for a public inquiry are rampant.  But Charest has repeatedly refused requests for an inquiry.    Bellemare has declared in separate interviews that construction companies made major donations to the Liberals, and that he had information that could embarrass the government.  He has refused to elaborate further.  The office of Quebec’s director general of elections now says it will invite the former justice minister to share additional details. Premier Jean Charest rightfully denies any corruptions  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100317/national/20100317_que_construction_donations

The public is also invited to share with the police anything they know about corruptions, abuses. Now as you and your loved ones get older you too will spend more time in Doctor’s offices, Hospitals, and convalescent, old age homes and will have wished that you and I had done something more about it all before too..  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/02/23/and-now-how-many-more-are-there-like-him/

It is clearly absurd to say all Canadian  doctors are bad or they are all good. “Complaints about Alberta MDs jumped in 2009  according to the province’s College of Physicians and Surgeons. About 41 per cent of complaints were about the quality of care and another 37 per cent arose from how doctors manage their practices. Most complaints are handled by what the college calls an informal resolution process.Of these, last year 34 per cent were remedied through resolution and 61 per cent were closed because the doctor was found to be right or there wasn’t enough information to continue. The remaining complaints were either withdrawn by the patients or referred to others. ”  “Am I the only one that can smell ‘white-wash’ “the college then determines if the complaint merits more investigation.” Does anyone else see a problem with the profession investigating itself??! Have we learned anything from the recent incidents involving the RCMP?  It sounds to me that patients with valid complaints need an organization dedicated to representing them rather than relying on ‘self policing’ by physicians and their colleagues.    “Doctors in ALBERTA? I thought they were Dentists. SHEEESH !” Most people complain about an MD because they are incompetent, rude, impatient, and do not listen to people..  people complain about certain doctors because they are bad doctors and they become WORSE as a result of improper resources and the situation is made worse by improper resources but even in the best of times, some MDs need an attitude adjustment….not all, some, and seemingly more and more everyday….

Again let me be clear I have my own   father’s  undeniable and full consent,  permissions to expose, demand the full prosecution of any, all of my father’s past, present abusers, even in Hospitals, Social services, Convalescent homes, Banks, etc.  I also do have the support of Quebec’s Premier Jean Charest as well here, and also the good staff of my Local Quebec Liberal MLA, as well as even the support of a local news media reporter.. all who do say to me keep up the good work, do continue to deal with all those bad persons.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/11/hospital-deaths-account-for-half-of-deaths-annually/
 
In reality we all do know there are good and bad people in real life, sadly too many bad persons, that includes bad professionals, the bad lawyers, bad doctors, bad nurses, bad hospital administrators, bad cops., bad RCMP., bad  corporations and bad business persons now too and not just too many bad, unacceptable Politicians, ministers too now. and bad hospitals even ..  I am really rightfully disgusted as to how too many of the so called Canadian Professionals such as cops, RCMP officers, doctors, nurses, pastors tend to be bullies, abusers of others and too often now… they seem to falsely think they are above the law cause they hold an important job. I also do rightfully  not hesitate to talk often also with the news media and to use my right of free speech about any abuses I encounter such as the false abuses of patients is see in Hospitals too often these days too. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/02/17/local-medical-services-fall-drastically-short-of-what-it-should-be/

 

I am still awaiting the full reply, actions,  services towards my father and also towards me. And not replying, dealing  adequately to my email, demands does not make my complaints go away and you  already by now know that . http://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/03/16/maisson-herron/

Alleged victim testifies in RCMP sex-assault trial A Yukon Supreme Court judge has heard testimony from a woman who claims two off-duty RCMP officers raped her a year ago.   The woman, who cannot be identified under a publication ban, has testified that constables Graham Belak, 30, and Shawn McLaughlin, 33, sexually assaulted her in the early-morning hours of March 8, 2009, in the southern Yukon town of Watson Lake. Belak and McLaughlin were both suspended from the RCMP with pay after the charges were laid. They have since moved out of Watson Lake, as has the woman. … the woman said she met the off-duty officers at a house party. The three went back to Belak’s house, where, the woman alleged, McLaughlin held her down on the floor while Belak raped her. The woman said she could not move or speak during the alleged assault and that she blacked out a couple times before she woke up around 6 a.m. to find she was naked from the waist down http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100310/canada/canada_north_yukon_sex_assault

Officer tells court his version of events As his pregnant wife and two-year-old son slept at home, RCMP Const. Shawn McLaughlin engaged in three-way sex with a married woman and Const. Graham Belak, according to McLaughlin’s testimony in Yukon Supreme Court The intercourse he had with a woman after a party in Watson Lake last March was consensual, RCMP Const. Graham Belak told a Whitehorse courtroom.  Yukon RCMP officer told a judge Thursday he did not sexually assault a woman in Watson Lake last year while off-duty, although he admitted he did act inappropriately. Crown prosecutor Robert Beck described the two RCMP officers on trial for sexual assault as opportunists targeting a vulnerable woman who was new to Watson Lake, where the alleged crime is to have occurred. The husband of a woman who claims two off-duty RCMP officers sexually assaulted her has told a Yukon Supreme Court judge that he regrets not accompanying his wife to the party where she met the Mounties. The reality, moral of this news  story is that you cannot trust the RCMP even at a Party

He says the two officers will have the opportunity to defend themselves and cross-examine any witnesses that are called. No date for the hearing has been set.  Rogers says the men could face a range of penalties, from a written reprimand to dismissal from the force.

A pretend slap on the wrists is what they likely will get for showing the whole world that the Mounties cannot be trusted at parties, or when it comes to having sex  with another man’s wife.

RCMP drops Wagmatcook-shooting probe CBC – Fri Mar 12, 4:56 AM  RCMP went to John Simon’s home on the Cape Breton First Nations reserve in 2008 in response to a call that he was suicidal. An officer entered the home without orders and shot Simon, helped him to die at no extra charge.. just what Simon wanted too.. The racists RCMP will not take disciplinary action against an officer who fatally shot a Wagmatcook, N.S., man because the force took too long to start its investigation, an ongoing unacceptable fact especially when the natives are involved . Naturally the bad police farce still do cover up for their own Canada wide too..
.
RCMP POLICE SERVICE (1)
.
A Nova Scotia First Nation is renewing its call for a public inquiry into a fatal shooting by an RCMP officer, saying the investigation that cleared the Mountie was deeply flawed.      RCMP Const. Jeremy Frenette was called to Simon’s home on Dec. 2, 2008. He climbed through a window to deal with an allegedly drunk, suicidal and armed Simon ignoring a supervisor’s directive to stay put and ended up killing  him.  Patsy MacKay urged the RCMP to “wait John out” because she believed he would simply fall asleep. In addition, the fact that Simon had an unloaded rifle in his hands when he was shot.  Patsy MacKay left the house when her common-law husband started drinking and took a rifle with her. There was no confrontation between the two, the band states in its report.  Also, MacKay wasn’t drunk,  the band maintains.  “All they [RCMP] had to do was own up. People do make mistakes. But they just wouldn’t, they the RCMP just refused to take responsibility and I don’t know why that is,” she said. “Only a public inquiry will answer those questions, not only for this community but for others across the country because so many are in the same position because of the policing structure, but also in a very specific way heal the community because the concluding report was an insult,” Gary Richard, the band’s lawyer. The band concludes Simon’s death was preventable and that it was caused by mistakes by the RCMP and their flawed command and control structure. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100318/canada/canada_novascotia_ns_wagmatcook_band_shooting_report

 HALIFAX, N.S. – The watchdog agency for the RCMP says rising public concern has prompted it to take the rare step of launching its own probe into the fatal shooting of a Nova Scotia man in his home by a police officer.  Ian McPhail, acting chairman of the RCMP complaints commission, announced Tuesday he has decided to proceed with an inquiry into the conduct of the RCMP in the Dec. 2, 2008, shooting death of John Simon.  McPhail said the probe – known as a “public interest investigation” under the RCMP Act – is of his own initiative rather than as a result of outside complaints.  “There are sufficient concerns related to this case which merit a public interest investigation,” McPhail said in an email.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100316/national/ns_rcmp_shooting

Maniac killed a good cop.. WINGHAM, Ont. – The retired logger and avid hunter accused of gunning down an Ontario Provincial Police officer earlier this week died Thursday from wounds he received in a gunfight with police, as the officer’s family prepared to lay him to rest with full police honours.  Const. Vu Pham was shot and killed Monday after pulling over a pickup truck on a rural southwestern Ontario road. Fred Preston was then shot in an exchange of gunfire after another officer got to the scene near Wingham, Ont., north of London.  Preston was charged Wednesday with first-degree murder in the death of Pham and attempted murder relating to the other officer.  The 70-year-old former reeve of Joly township in northern Ontario had been in critical condition in hospital since Monday. But on Thursday night he was taken off life support, said a family member who did not want to be identified.  The province’s Special Investigations Unit confirmed the death.  Meanwhile, hundreds of people who knew Pham at various stages of his life – as a young boy newly arrived in Canada, to his years as a dedicated father and police officer – flocked to a funeral home Thursday to pay their respects.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100311/national/officer_shot

DO ALSO NOTE THAT  I REALLY NOW DO NOT TRY TO PLEASE EVERYONE, I DO NOT DEPEND ON ADVERTISERS FOR NONE OF MY INCOME, SINCE I ALSO DO NOT WORRY ABOUT BEING FIRED OR NOW PLEASING ANY BOSSES I NOW CAN WRITE AND DEAL WITH THE TRUTH. SO I DO NOT HAVE TO RESORT TO LIES, OMISSIONS, SPINS AS WE SEE SO MANY BAD NEWS REPORTERS NOW EVEN DO AS WELL.
.
I am really rightfully disgusted as to how too many of the so called Canadian Professionals such as cops, RCMP officers, doctors, nurses, pastors tend to be bullies, abusers of others and too often now… they seem to falsely think they are above the law cause they hold an important job.

Nunavut RCMP officer charged after domestic assault The Canadian Press – Tue Mar 16, 10:13 PM IQALUIT, Nunavut – An RCMP officer in the tiny Baffin Island community of Pond Inlet has been charged with assault after a domestic disturbance. Const. Eric Ootoovak was locked up Sunday after fellow officers responded to a complaint from a home in the largely Inuit community. Ootoovak was on paternity leave at the time . An RCMP spokesman says it appears to have been a domestic incident, although the name of the victim hasn’t been released. Ootoovak, who has been released from custody, will appear in court on two counts of assault on June 1 in Pond Inlet

In reality we all do know there are good and bad people in real life, sadly too many bad persons, that includes bad professionals, the bad lawyers, bad doctors, bad nurses, bad hospital administrators, bad cops., bad RCMP., bad  corporations and bad business persons now too and not just too many bad, unacceptable Politicians, ministers too now. and bad hospitals even ..

NOW I ALSO KNOW FOR DECADES THAT OF YOU GIVE A GOOD WORKER A JOB HE DOES HIS BEST, WHEREAS IF YOU GIVE A BAD WORKER A JOB, THE SHIFTLESS PERSONS TRIES TO AVOID DOING ANY WORK EVEN BY LYING, HAVING TOO MANY COFFEE BREAKS, GOSSIPING WITH MANY OTHERS, LONG LUNCH BREAKS.. SUCKING UP TO OTHERS.. ETC

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


 

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

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

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

The Canadian Press

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

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

 

Leg and Heart surgery

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

The murderous RCMP

01pmtaser1
The Canadian Press   OTTAWA – Opposition parties want the RCMP to stop using Taser stun guns after the force refused to reclassify the weapons to restrict use.  The Liberals and NDP say the Mounties missed a parliamentary committee’s Dec. 15 deadline to categorize the 50,000-volt electronic devices as impact weapons. Reclassifying Tasers would limit their use to situations where a person assaults police or the public, or poses a serious threat of harm or death.  An all-party committee of MPs called for the restriction last June until Taser safety claims are supported by impartial studies.  The public safety committee also recommended the RCMP revise its policy on stun gun use to include clear and strict guidelines – as is the case for actual guns – that would limit multiple firings. 
edi-157
 Liberal public safety critic Mark Holland says the Mounties have done little in response.  “In a couple of those things, they said they’ve done something, but we don’t know exactly what and we’re not given any real details,” he said Tuesday.  “That’s just not acceptable. It’s not like they’ve had two weeks, they’ve had six months.”  The Taser can be fired from a distance of several metres and cycled repeatedly once steel probes puncture the skin or clothing.  The guns can also be used multiple times in up-close stun mode – a zap likened to leaning on a hot stove – sometimes causing blisters or burns. 
cops
The RCMP says reclassifying the Taser as recommended by the committee could threaten police and public safety.  Sgt. Sylvie Tremblay, an RCMP spokeswoman, said that because Parliament is currently not sitting, “there has been no progress report provided to the committee.”  An August briefing prepared for RCMP Commissioner William Elliott maintains the Taser “is an effective tool with very limited injury rates.”  The force says it has restricted Taser use, improved reporting on stun gun firings and now requires officers to be re-certified in Taser training each year.  Holland says that doesn’t go far enough.  “For an issue that has demanded the national attention as much as this issue has, because of the fact that there have been serious injuries and deaths, we expected a lot more.”  Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski died in October 2007 after RCMP officers repeatedly zapped him and pinned down at Vancouver International Airport. Amateur video of his wrenching final moments was beamed around the world as Tasers became water-cooler talk for outraged viewers.  Others defended the stun guns that remain an overwhelmingly popular tool with police. 

canada-17

 In all, more than 20 people in Canada have died after being hit with a Taser.  Mounties across Canada have used their stun guns more than 5,000 times in the last seven years. 
NDP deputy leader Thomas Mulcair said the rules for Taser use remain unclear.  “The mistake that’s been made over the past few years is to perceive the Taser as being electric pepper spray or an electric night stick – something that could control someone who was in difficulty,” he said.  “Unfortunately now, with over 20 deaths, it’s incredibly obvious to anyone who looks at the situation, that we’ve got to mark a pause for the use of the Taser right now, simply because it’s been proven abundantly clear that they’re too dangerous to be used without proper rules. And we don’t have proper rules.”  The RCMP sent several of its stun guns to the testing lab in response to a new analysis that found some Tasers pack more of a shock than the manufacturer promises, raising questions about their safety.  British Columbia and Quebec also announced plans to test older Tasers following the report.” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/081216/national/taser_moratorium

The murderous RCMP who think they are not accountable need to be brought to justice still too..

Canadian Press TORONTO – The Ontario government has ordered a new review of some Tasers used by police to make sure they are functioning properly. Concerns arose after CBC reported that one Taser model, the X26, used by police forces sent out higher voltage than specified by the manufacturer. A government spokesman says police in Ontario have been asked to test and provide an inventory of X26 models manufactured before 2006.  Tony Brown of the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services says there are about 2,000 conducted-energy weapons used by police in Ontario, excluding those used by the RCMP. The province started its own review of the use of Tasers earlier this year, which Brown says should be concluded early in the new year. But police don’t have to report back to the ministry with the results from the Taser tests. “We have every confidence that the police services will take the actions necessary,” Brown said. More than 20 people in Canada have died after being zapped with a Taser, but Taser International says the devices cannot be blamed for the deaths. In British Columbia last week, all stun guns acquired before Jan. 1, 2006, were pulled from service for further testing. Alberta also announced it would test all X26 models purchased before Jan. 1, 2006. Unlike several other jurisdictions across the country, Alberta won’t take the Tasers out of circulation unless tests show there’s something wrong. Last week, B.C. prosecutors said there would be no charges against four RCMP officers who used a Taser to stun Polish citizen Robert Dziekanski at the Vancouver airport before he died in October 2007. A review found Dziekanski’s death was not directly caused by the Taser jolts but they were a contributing factor, along with heart disease, alcohol withdrawal, and decreased ability to breathe due to an officer kneeling on him. Tasers have been approved for use by police in Ontario since 2002, Brown said. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/081216/national/ont_tasers_review

Surprise, Surprise, Still ineffective RCMP

 Oh yeah about the bad RCMP there are pages and pages here about them too..  is is great that not all justice is carried out by the courts, the police and RCMP alone.. Believe it or not God has his ways too.. i have seen it often too.
Never have I  had the mostly pretentions, lazy RCMP do an adequate policing on any one of my rightful demands to them.
It’s getting harder every day to justify  paying for an RCMP that does nothing.  Their excuses for taking no action in  this case are crap. Oh this is total BS…the RCMP have a confession on TAPE…what more do they need???????  Two B.C. people who are victims of identity theft are speaking out in frustration with the justice system. Because you know who it is — and you have the proof that you need — and nothing happens.”  because it’s been such a time delay — the statute of limitations on certain crimes means I am on the hook for everything.” “[Identity theft and fraud] is a level of crime that you don’t know about until it is too late it seems.. He filed his first report with the RCMP at that time. Gorst said he was told it was a matter for his bank to handle.. it is “common” for police to be unable to make charges stick in identity theft cases. The crimes are intricate and often hidden for long periods, with the help of technology. What a travesty of our justice system. And I thought Harper was getting tough on crime. Well, it’s all just grandstanding because he really hasn’t done anything. What’s the point in tougher jail sentences when you can’t even charge someone?  They reported the case to the RCMP? In British Columbia, you say?  Well, that explains it all, doesn’t it?  Anyone else wonder why it’s so hard for the little people to get justice? Clearly they are not in the wrong yet the authorities and credit companies will use them as scape goats since the real criminals cant be brought in.  It is obvious the system does not work in our favour as it should.  Disgusting! The victim did not apply for this credit, did not receive any benefit from it, and followed the rules. I wouldn’t pay a damn cent.  http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2009/09/28/bc-identitytheft.html

Taser contributed to airport death but didn’t cause it: The RCMP officers did but RCMP not guilty of criminal intent of Robert Dziekanski’s death and Dziekanski’s mother, Zofia Cisowski said   “I’m angry, I’m mad, I’m disappointed,”  from her home in Kamloops, B.C. “They should criminally charge, of course. But they made the decision (and) I was expecting that.” Supposedly Robert Dziekanski’s death was not directly caused by the Taser jolts but they were one of several contributing factors, along with heart disease, alcohol withdrawal, the stress of being restrained and a decreased ability to breathe due to an officer kneeling on him, said Stan Lowe, spokesman for the B.C. Criminal Justice Branch.  
 
We clearly have idiots, fools for Police in the RCMP, and that is alwaays unacceptable.
  
 Despite the fact police were warned Dziekanski was supposedly intoxicated, an autopsy found no trace of drugs or alcohol. It did find evidence of chronic alcohol abuse. Autopsy results revealed for the first time Friday found Dziekanski, 40, died because his heart stopped.  But Cisowski rejected that conclusion.  “I know my son the best,” she said. “I was in Poland in 2007 and I spent almost two months with him. He never asked me about even beer or something.”  Ironic that likely too often alcoholics  themslves the RCMP and others now  would slander a dead man as being an alcoholic too.

 RCMP Const. Bill Bentley said Dziekanski was jolted by a police Taser gun after the Polish immigrant grabbed a stapler. But Bentley’s original version of events was different. “Subject grabbed stapler and came at [officers] screaming,” read his original notes, written within days of the Oct. 14, 2007 incident. That’s not true, Bentley admitted today. A widely shown video of the incident shows Dziekanski made no such move. Bentley said his memory was refreshed by watching the video and getting a good night’s sleep. But Commission counsel Patrick McGowan wondered how much the video changed his recollection. “If you didn’t have video of this matter, would you be here today saying the subject grabbed a stapler and came at the [officers] screaming?” McGowan asked. “I don’t know,” Bentley replied.  http://vancouver.24hrs.ca/News/local/2009/02/26/8537371-sun.html 
The story and lies change for the RCMP with the needs…
 

Officer fears Poland could pursue charges, inquiry told

Images taken from video footage show Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski falling to the ground after being tasered at the Vancouver airport Oct. 14, 2007. The video shows that Dziekanski did not resist or confront police.

Surprise surprise,  ineffective RCMP, who could have guessed now this suppressing outcome. Even with all the video footage the RCMP cannot get, catch one of their own in the act too? This is the same RCMP who could not catch the undeniably guilty Brian Mulroney too he? All the RCMP are good supposedly at is giving out traffic tickets, producing ineffective reports, desk jockeys mostly now and even that is questionable? They cannot it seems catch any terrorists, drug addicts, gang members.. But they are sure consistent liars, spin doctors, control freaks  alcoholics . clearly incompetent, pretentious and wasteful of tax payer’s money too  it seem. So who are they fooling as to how bad they are.. certainly only some of the others but not me.

It’s been over nine months since Robert Dziekanski lost his life at Vancouver’s International Airport, killed, murdered by the RCMP and now, he’s finally been laid to rest in his Polish hometown. Taser victim Robert Dziekanski laid to rest in Poland The Province Airport Taser victim laid to rest in native Poland     No one was yet been convicted for this crime too. Why? Unacceptable!“Those heading up our national police force must be so glad people have other things on their minds these days. Otherwise, Canadians might be howling about the Mounties’ latest antics and demanding our political leaders hold them accountable. Because, as we know, our elected officials refuse to utter the least critical word about the RCMP unless there is public pressure or they fear electoral ramifications.”  GARY MASON gmason@globeandmail.com

BC Justice Minister resigned cause he had failed to do his job fully..

Cabinet Ministers too  are here to serve the citizens, and so are the Police.. Now even since I was about 8 years old in Canada I had learned that the Cops were not to be trusted, when my neighbor was a cop,  and I saw firsthand what he was really like.. and decades later that has still been true as well in my unwanted police encounters, RCMP included now … but rightfully now I don’t even trust the pastors, lawyers, realtors, accountants as well.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/11/01/some-people-still-seem-to-have-it-all-wrong-and-why/

Hidden agendas, the world is full of it, many people have hidden agendas, Ministers, politicans, cops  too. Sadly some people they tend  present their own “facts,” but fall short in truthfulness  for they tend to falsely  have a hidden agenda, and often they want to be falsely personally worshipped and live in sin too.

Pretentious Ministers, Health Ministers, medical heart tests too

 
 
Some things seem to never change, such as cold calloused, pretentious Ministers, Health Ministers included who really do not care if the others live or die, as long as they alone survive  it seems still too. I could not help but notice and read the great newspaper articles about heart care tips.. but what about all of those people where these tips are too late and the mostly pretentious health care is not there for them.. face it to get get real health care you have to get the attention of the emergency department, triage  care givers, that is if you can get past those preeminent security guards there, too often pretentious triage nurses, who screen all the patients firstly. and if you still are not dumb to recognize that now hiring 12 nurses who get the same pay as one doctor cannot, do not make up, compose one qualified medical doctor firstly as well. Nurses have 2 years of training while doctors have at least a decade, so they the real doctors do have both a deeper and wider applicable   knowledge base too.
   
Congestive heart failure, Coronary artery disease, Hypertension ,Mitral valve collapse, Arrhythmias, Atrial fibrillation , Angina,  Cardiomyopathy, Heart attacks, Strokes, High cholesterol all likely can be effectively treated if we had a more competent, compassionated medical care system firstly..
 
Secondly most of the initial doctor  prescribed medical test for potentially serious  heart problems are really pretentious, cheap, ineffective, basically  all useless, and are mostly now used because the real valid medical tests such as the Echocardiogram   are mostly unavailable and too costly to be used immediatley too, for most people who reallly do need them.  see https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/27/why-heart-attacks-often-kill-still/
 
 
“Some noninvasive Heart tests, and not all of them are fully effective even.. most tests still do require professional diagnostic experiences solely by quailfied cardiologists.
  • Resting electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
  • Signal-averaged electrocardiogram (SAECG)
  • Chest X-ray
  • Holter monitor (ambulatory electrocardiogram)

 

  • Echocardiogram
  • Exercise stress test
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA
 The  echocardiogram is a test in which ultrasound is used to examine the heart. The equipment is far superior to that used by fishermen. In addition to providing single-dimension images, known as M-mode echo that allows accurate measurement of the heart chambers, the echocardiogram also offers far more sophisticated and advanced imaging. The first test that should be done for most people with potential heart problems often seems rather firstly reserved for the pregnant mothers rather still too.” http://www.heartsite.com/html/echocardiogram.html
 
Based on that above  facts alone a triage Medical  doctor said today to me that he would love to hire me to help out in his emergency clinic, since few people do now even have that essential medical heart problem grasp, and what about you?  http://stayinhealth.wordpress.com
 
 
Or are you another one of those people who will let most of the really sick and needy  heart patients die next needlessly too by doing nothing good about it too?
 
  
 
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.

“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 Melamine is sometimes illegally added to food products in order to increase the apparent protein content. Manufacturers knowingly and intentionally mix Melamine, which has some rather nasty ingredients, in our milk. To mix this product, they needed the use of formaldehyde, which is a very toxic and nasty ingredient in itself. Where has the integrity of our products gone? It seems like in the venture of profit many companies will trick and deceive customers into believing whatever they are ingesting is good for them. One important matter though is that, it is not only China who is doing such acts. Many companies everywhere are also putting toxic ingredients in our food and beverages without exactly telling us about it. http://augustafreepress.com/2008/10/13/haresh-daswani-watching-what-you-eat/
