The non conformer's Canadian Weblog

one of the most read topics here is the subject of bad police officers in Canada

  A democratic, free nation never needs to fear any oppression, perversity  intimidation even  by police or the state.  Free speech is still a valid right for all too, not just for the bad persons, cops.. escalating violence by anyone leads to more violence.  The use of police force — against minorities and whites alike — is so poorly monitored that there is no precise accounting of how many citizens are abused, killed by officers, much less  the RELATED crucial details which tend to be  manifested only by the fact that citizens are posting unsettling cellphone Police videos and pictures of police brutality and because  of the many the records  are visible mostly from news media reports, some crucial details. Still details of  the race of officers and suspects, often are missing.  But still Canada has an ugly history of police abuses now too. The Police can do their part to repair their tarnished  images by firstly to acknowledging that  the person ‘s  rights, as an equal  the one right in front of them a person that the Police  force is supposed to  be  serving and protecting. even  to protect  people under arrest. And  people around the world are demanding more accountability from the  Governments , Civil and public servants, Police and all professionals too

Few bad  police  officers are ever charged and found guilty.. Less than one percent..  Face it one of the most read topics here is the subject of bad police officers in Canada which clearly indicates the citizens concern on this topic too. . The Police in Canada as well do owe a “special duty” to the “justice system,”, “Citizens” and all members of the police owe a special duty to be faithful to the justice system and the  taxpayers .

.

“When the perpetrators of any crime are police officers sworn to uphold the law, the objective of their denunciation also has heightened significance. “Public confidence in the honesty of the police is fundamental to the integrity of the criminal justice system.”. .

. 2 .

All persons in leadership office do also now have to face higher penalties as an example standard now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most  people is that all persons  in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included are always to be exemplary in behavior, conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, and thus to do so they now are also to be exemplary judged, prosecuted for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks. . 281 . Unacceptably too many officers facing criminal or police act charges remain suspended for years, using loopholes and stall tactics to stay on the payroll as long as possible before resigning or retiring. Officers convicted criminally are still paid, unless they are incarcerated and can’t report for duty, because only a police act conviction can lead to termination.

Officers convicted criminally are still paid, unless they are incarcerated and can’t report for duty, because only a police act conviction can lead to termination. .

.

Yes now what also has already raised the ire of the Citizens is that taxpayer’s cover costs for officers who are charged, but not convicted, of a criminal or disciplinary offence especially at a time when there is some criticism about the ever-increasing police budget. It is absurd that police are suspended with full pay while the local authorities, the Justice Department investigate , the court as well, all which can take years even. Paid leaves are unacceptable. The manner in which the administrations, criminal justice system handles cases involving police officers is driven by anything but the principle hat we are all equal in the eyes of the law.. Yes when the Police or the senior public officials are under investigation by the police, they should, at the very least be suspended at least with half-pay until the investigation concludes, to maintain public confidence in the system. . .

Four years after one of Hamilton’s highest-ranking police officers was suspended with pay, he has collected more than half a million dollars in salary and is eligible to retire without ever answering to his police act charges. Due to legal delay tactics and a controversial ruling by an adjudicator, are paving the way for Inspector David Doel to stave off his hearing until he can retire . If that happens, he will get his full retirement package, keep the money he “earned” while suspended and the 13 charges he faces — including having pornography on his police computer, having sex on duty and using police equipment to spy on an alleged former lover — will vanish. http://www.thespec.com/news-story/4232642-handcuffed-how-accused-cops-avoid-a-date-with-discipline/

.

After almost $600,000 in salary paid to him during more than four years of suspension, disgraced Hamilton police inspector David Doel is … comfortably retired. http://www.thespec.com/news-story/4442557-clairmont-retirement-saves-disgraced-hamilton-cop-from-charges/

.

And what constitutes even for the RCMP “gross misconduct” and a firing offence? Sexual incidents involving members are not tolerated. Neither, for that matter, are most cases of drunk driving and assault. But criminal convictions do not always lead to dismissals, and internal RCMP sanctions, if they result at all, can be weak. Serious cases of RCMP misconduct are not unusual, particularly, it seems, in B.C., where court documents outline serious indiscretions and allegations. Reporters have also obtained lists of RCMP adjudication board decisions that describe shocking behaviour and admissions by officers on active duty http://www.bcpolicecomplaints.org/bc_police_complaint_commissioner_stan_lowe_rollie_woods_coverup_vancouver_vpd_taylor_robinson_brutality.html . .

The Police Managers, Politicians, Police Unions, the Police themselves are Facing Nation Wide Outrage , Public Anger  Canada wide   is an UNDENIABLE problem in how the police do their jobs. . So how do the administrators  deal with it? They threaten laws suits against those who try to complain..

.

All Police officers do not only need to maintain the respect and good will of citizens to do their job effectively, they also depend on that good will in their salary, pensions and benefits, in which they have been even far more successful than other public employees in recent years. . The undeniable present lack of trust of police by the minority community is also unacceptable. .

.

When Police enforcement goes bad, the police and the police unions historically close ranks around suspect officers Police PR and these Police cover-ups will not do. . It is important for the police unions, Police managers to become honestly self-critical about police conduct and to not blindly defend each and every egregious incident by officers.

.

And the criminal justice system should be doing what it was supposed to do, carry out real, valid   justice against the police now too. . These total ongoing increasing costs in defending bad officers which will also next result in fewer officers on the street . All Police criminal trials can be expensive. A multimillion-dollar legal bill for five former Toronto police drug squad officers is absurd. John Schertzer and four other officers were convicted in June of attempting to obstruct justice. Three of the officers were also convicted of perjury…

.

All police divisions need to hire, train, supervise, retain, to property train and/or supervise officers and to conduct a fair and impartial investigation even against police officers, . Any Police officers can even be charged for “unlawful detention,   battery, false arrest and unreasonable search and seizure,  the use of excessive and deadly unjustified, unreasonable, and illegal use of excessive force, including deadly force .

.

About the money. Looking more at concerns that many citizens have raised in recent years about police practices, many are about money and police departments’ roles in collecting it—whether to supplement their own or their municipality’s budget. Even there is a concern about the usage of radars, automated speed cameras and whether their use was being driven by public safety goals or a desire to maximize revenue and not  reducing  the deaths of citizens in car accidents. The re is  serious concerns about the immoral  behavior by the Police department and court system aimed at advancing revenue collection rather than public safety—and that fact that too many of those efforts were managed to ensure that the Police department was “bringing in revenue at the desired rate.” Creating a way for police activities to become partially self-funding, and setting them up in that way that as rather “criminals” seems to be politically attractive and has the approval  of the Police itself. 

.

It is too common for small towns even like Canmore Alberta  to falsely raise revenues from traffic enforcement..

.  

 Watch out for the RCMP speed trap in Canmore , Alberta as you leave Banff park.. it generates the RCMP millions and millions of dollars per year.  ( Revenue generating ) “Speed limits in the mountain parks are set with an eye toward preventing collisions with wildlife.” ( and how often does that occur? once a year?).  

.

Canmore  the home of the perverse Canmore Traffic court, and RCMP  traffic ticket revenue generation as I have already written about.

.

  Police do love to lie and say that all accidents are mostly speed related, to justify their fat cow cash grabs, especially in Alberta and in Ontario now too.. they lump all of their homemade statistics as the accidents, deaths related all to speeding.. but not in reality to drunk driver, bad drivers, road rage, poor roads, bad snow cleaning..  This is also still simply not acceptable. There is a direct link between DRIVING and collisions. The MORE you drive, the more likely you are to be involved in a collision and the more likely you are to get seriously hurt . So the police will now give tickets to all drivers   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/06/20/watch-out-for-the-money-making-speed-traps/ .

.

About the municipalities and their false collection of revenue through traffic fines these municipalities “victimize those whom they are designed to protect.” and these practices are “immoral.”  The additional taxation of the citizens through traffic enforcement is unacceptable even if it s falsely being carried out Canada wide. What’s the point of fining people for violating the rules of the road? Surely it is to ensure motorists are driving safely and not endangering others. That obvious point, it seems, is lost on Canada’s municipal and provincial governments, which are increasingly treating traffic tickets as just another source of revenue http://news.nationalpost.com/full-comment/national-post-view-raising-revenue-on-the-roads .

.

About 10 years ago, police charged an Alberta driver with careless driving for flashing his headlights at oncoming drivers to warn them of a speed trap ahead. The driver fought the ticket. At trial, the Crown argued that flashing high beams was dangerous because it might startle other drivers thereby distracting them and causing accidents. The judge wasn’t buying that. He ruled that drivers flashed their lights at one another for plenty of reasons, some of which enhanced safety — such as reminding another motorist to dim his brights. Besides, the judge added, the government’s principal purpose in setting up speed traps was to ensure drivers operated their vehicles at a safe rate of speed. It was not to raise money through fines. So since light-flashing motorists served the same purpose as government speed traps — keeping traffic within the speed limit — the government had no authority to end the practice of one driver giving another a heads-up. http://www.edmontonsun.com/2014/10/23/revenue-crucial-for-photo-radar-gunter

.

Speeding is not a major cause of  vehicular  accidents  but drunk driving rather is. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/?s=speeding

.

Winnipeg residents are up in arms because the city has been collecting record amounts of money from fines on drivers who break the rules, in part because it has refused to let drivers know what the rules actually are. Revenue received from photo-radar tickets increased 25 per cent between 2013 and 2014, generating $14.6 million last year — the equivalent of a $22-a-year tax for every resident. The city also took in $4.5 million from other types of traffic tickets. Part of the increase was due to the introduction of new rules lowering the speed limit in school zones and doubling fines in construction zones. http://news.nationalpost.com/news/canada/winnipeg-traffic-tickets

.

Photo radar’s real goal..  Are motorists school-zone scoff laws or haplessly feeding a cash cow? http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/opinion/analysis/photo-radars-real-goal-299297351.html . .

Even the RCMP are known to be unprofessional as well as  cost ineffective.. even alcoholics and so are many other police forces in Canada now too. I have dealt with the RCMP 6 times and rigthfully have no respect left  for the incompetent,  lying , pretentious RCMP. In fact I  had been abused  by the RCMP in Canmore Alberta  twice and next I saw firsthand how the RCMP  lied, covered up their own.. Say no to an RCMP police State  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/11/10/rcmp-managers-abuse-their-employees-and-get-a-ridiculous-punishment-for-it-next-too/ .

.

The per versed  municipal courts too often do lie at the heart of this corrupted police, justice system now too.. Their  criminals out of citizens who want to abide by law and then they the citizens  can’t get jobs that would bring in taxes clearly has the devil’s support. . These municipal officials need to be charged with corruption and racketeering. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/07/15/they-often-do-steal-the-designated-monies/ .

.

While the goal of having every call for Police service fast and effectively, actively engaging diverse communities, preparing for security threats like terrorism, and responding to societal problems as varied as drug abuse, mental illness, youth violence and human trafficking, having discretionary resources to allow the police flexibility in their efforts to do all those different tasks seems to be a viable goal, the devil is always in the false diversions, Promotions and empire building. These are certainly competing goals here. If the Police Management, officers start getting overly rewarded for how much revenue they bring in, the legitimate  concern becomes whether their law enforcement action will become driven more by the goal of revenue and less by the goal of public safety, service as is too often the case. They should not be forced to think more like a sales person than a public servant. . It shouldn’t be a surprise that the prospect of police departments generating revenue would seem like a great idea to municipal leaders and to the police leadership. As the ability to achieve promotional goals is significantly driven by having the monetary resources available to do so.

.

During the financial crisis, Provincial, federal and local budgets are hit hard. The pain of tight budgets has been felt across the board in many jurisdictions and the resources available to police departments fell, requiring changes like service and staff cuts.”

.

Yes the citizens rightfully do the government, police, courts, to be effective at minimal cost, thereby limiting the burden of taxes on the public. But Citizens “wouldn’t expect other public mission agencies—the public health department, for example—to become profit centers, and we shouldn’t expect that from law enforcement.” . A Perceptions of police officers as merely collection agents rather than public protectors cannot help but undermine that legitimacy and trust. Too many citizens have lost confidence in the police amd the justice systems. . . Amongst the major Citizens concerns are all of the related taxpayer’s is the high legal costs of the lawyers with their high lawyer. rates for a start , example of $470 per hour and hourly rates of $275 for a lawyer with six years experience, $260 for a first-year lawyer, $230 for an articling student and $235 for a law clerk should make us more costs conscious as well . Among the absurd legal fees approved this year was a bill of $280,000 for the successful defence in provincial court of a constable charged with assault bodily harm during the arrest of a suspected drug dealer. “The fees were substantial due to the protracted period of time it took to conclude the matter,” . And even if acquitted of criminal charges, all charged police officers accused of wrongdoing should be the focus of a coroner’s inquiry, a civil suit or a complaint to a civilian review agency. . see also https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/01/21/so-who-realy-protects-the-canadian-citizens-from-the-too-often-bad-cops-bad-rcmp/ .

Needless to say police resources are often misused where even the mayors do instruct the police to find out all they can about their opposition members too.  ” and it all is still unacceptable! Free speech is a right for bullies, crooks, abusers only it still seems in Canada now. Police already have arrested me for complaining about the Calgary Police in the Calgary Police chief office even.. the charge was talking out loud in a public place.. Many people are shocked to discover free speech is not being allowed too often in many places in Canada,  on the net, in churches, letters to governments, to the news editors too… the police have visited me or objected now at least 7 times in response to my writings.. still decades later I  am still rightfully openly complaining about the much too many bad police supervisors and the too many bad acts of the so called professionals, the police included. The abuse of the citizens is not acceptable anywhere. . .

THERE ARE MUCH TOO MANY BAD COPS IN CANADA -FIRE THEM ALL NOW 

.

No cop is above the law. Too bad for them they are paid to work still too.

.

Police still fail to catch most of the real criminals including the car thieves, and the Fraud perpetrated over the Internet which still is a growing citizen concern in Canada and throughout the world. The police always claim they lack resources, they will never have enough resources if they reuse to do a decent days work for their pay. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/03/24/the-police-cannot-get-the-crimminals/  .

.

“A new Alberta police database will track citizen’s every interaction with police, and it can be used without a warrant or even a supervisor’s permission”.. they had an old system already do doing this too..   the police falsely too often do not observe the laws..   . The Alberta government has passed new legislation designed to reduce the number of  complaints against police officers. The changes, which include new restrictions on who can launch a complaint, more powers to dismiss frivolous complaints and provisions to shorten appeals, are Unacceptable. .

.

Alberta is clearly another  police state.. where I got arrested for failing to pay a speeding ticket, 3 tickets from the same cop in Alberta even, and twice on the same spot in Canmore, Alberta by the RCMP, I next got no tickets for decades in Quebec and elsewhere. Ironically the same Conservatives who preach the letter of the law approach on others, tend not to practise it too often themselves, tend to feel falsely they are above the law.. the law of personal accountability.  I even got arrested in the Calgary Chief of police office for talking too loud, I had said you cops are crooked  while trying to file my rightful   police complaint. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/03/24/the-police-cannot-get-the-crimminals/
.
 
LAZY, INDIFFERENT, IMMORAL, BAD POLICE, BAD JUSTICE MINSTERS, BAD SOLICITOR GENERALS  is not a new aspect in Ottawa, Ontario, Alberta, Quebec, BC,  and in the rest of Canada.  A useless , no good, bad Conservative politician  is not any better for any of us over a useless , no good, bad Liberal  politician in Canada now too.
.
 
SO NEVER  EXPECT A FULL HONEST INVESTIGATION WHEN CLEARY THE RESULTS WILL SHOW BAD COPS, BAD ATTORNEY GENERALS, BAD MINISTERS WHO HAVE NOT BEING DOING A GOOD JOB. ALL UNACCEPTABLE.  NOW WHY IS IT BAD PEOPLE DO NOT CHANGE NEXT BESIDE THE FACT THEY LIKE TO DO BAD THINGS, IT IS ALSO CAUSE THEY FALSELY  REFUSE TO ADMIT THE THINGS THEY DO ARE BAD.

.

 You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors,  police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers, bad PERSONS   who STILL DO say that ALL OF  bad people, INCLUDING the ALCOHOLICS, the bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. 
.
 NOW WHY IS IT BAD PEOPLE DO NOT CHANGE NEXT BESIDE THE FACT THEY LIKE TO DO BAD THINGS, IT IS ALSO CAUSE THEY FALSELY  REFUSE TO ADMIT THE THINGS THEY DO ARE BAD.
.

The RCMP maximum 10 days punishment is always absurd, permanent dismissal is what is always needed with the bad cops and their clearly bad superiors who had managed and hired them too.. Bad solicitor generals and bad Justice Ministers, bad Premiers, bad Prime Ministers as well should all be fired ASAP.  The Canadian Justice is too often an empty one. The establishment cover ups for it’s own and prevails.   Imagine that we have liars for justice Ministers and cops too.

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/05/25/canadas-two-tiered-justice-system-opposed/

.

DON’T BE STUPID AND BELIEVE ALL THE LYING SPINS AS TO WHY IT TAKES SO LONG TO INVESTIGATE THE BAD COPS.. I have had many experiences in laying simple complaints against bad cops that never got anywhere cause the investigators were clearly pretenders.. in Contrast the investigations of all citizens clearly would not take so long..
 .
Decades and decades later the police are still  covering up for their own again and again but the police are not the only bad professionals who do this these days as well, so do the Hospitals, doctors, nurses, civil and public servants, governments… When it comes to dealing with the rightful needs, complaints of the ordinary citizens our Canadian civil and public servants, politicians and their representatives too, and most church pastors now too, they are still mostly unacceptable liars and  PRETENDERS, LAZY, GOOD FOR NOTHING PERSONS,  and that has been mostly my undeniable experiences the last 4 decades now too..  How about having now some real professionalism.
.

They the police are an essential part of our community for sure, but they all also do need to be fiscally responsible . . We do till do need to Manage EVEN the RCMP more effectively. There are about 19,200 regular members and another 3,760 civilians in the RCMP. RCMP racks up $800M in overtime in 5 years The total does not include extra duty pay for standby or operational readiness. http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2012/12/04/rcmp-overtime-costs-harris.html

. .

Now “it’s also true that the police costs in general, and the related police salaries in particular, are now out of control. My very contacts with the police for decades have also left me seriously wondering what these people do. As far as I am concerned they are all already overpaid. . Most police officers are very well compensated overall, with too many making well over $100K per year, and they still do get a very generous pensions and many paid days off. Right now they are also paying retired officers, who are collecting their full pensions, $75 an hour to walk around the airport and babysit crime scenes. That’s all thus the equivalent of $150K per year. . The total spending on police services nationally has doubled since 1997, is reaching $12-billion. While the average Canadian income has grown by 11 per cent over the past decade, the average police salary has grown by 40 per cent. . The cost of Policing is doing to municipal budgets what health care is doing to provincial budgets: threatening to consume them.” Both systems do need better cost control management too..

.

Canada’s Police Among the Best Paid in the World. While the volume and severity of crime in Canada have been steadily declining for the last decade, police strength has gone in the other direction. There are now 200 officers for every 100,000 people – an increase of 9 per cent since 2001, though homicides rates are at their lowest in more than 30 years. Some high-crime cities, such as Regina and Winnipeg, have high police strength, but so, too, do cities such as Toronto and Montreal, which rank low on the crime-severity index. The number of Criminal Code incidents per officer has declined steadily since peaking 20 years ago . Unlike other public-sector employees, many municipal police forces continue to receive annual raises that outpace inflation. From 2009 to 2011, expenditures on police salaries and benefits increased by 5 per cent across the country, while other police operating expenditures fell 4 per cent, Statistics Canada reports.

.

A first-class officer in Canada’s big cities now earns $80,000-$90,000 a year on average – before overtime and benefits. That makes them among the most generously compensated police in the world. During this year of hard-pressed public finances, the Toronto Police Association negotiated an 11.5-per-cent pay increase over the next four years for its members. Officers get 18 annual days of sick leave, and can bank unused leave, half of which can then be paid out in salary. They can retire at 50, with full pensions, after 30 years of service. http://terrywhitehead.ca/canadas-police-among-the-best-paid-in-the-world/

 .

The cost of policing cannot continue to rise indefinitely in Canada, or cities will end up bankrupt. Pools, camps, parks and libraries will have to close. There are other municipalities with the largest police officers per 100,000 population and they have still some of the worse crime statistics. Adding more police officers especially bad ones does not necessarily guarantee that we yield better results. .

,

LAZY, INDIFFERENT, IMMORAL, BAD POLICE, BAD JUSTICE MINSTERS, BAD SOLICITOR GENERALS  is not a new aspect in Ottawa, Ontario and in the rest of Canada. SO NEVER  EXPECT A FULL HONEST INVESTIGATION WHEN CLEARY THE RESULTS WILL SHOW BAD COPS, BAD ATTORNEY GENERALS, BAD MINISTERS WHO HAVE NOT BEING DOING A GOOD JOB. ALL UNACCEPTABLE.

.

The sad truth about how many  Canadian cops get convicted for on-duty shootings? None.. says it all too..

Only at elections time it seems the citizens count

0liars-abusers

We seem to get tidbits of citizen concern  information out of Ottawa, STILL EVEN from the Conservative Harper government,  mostly merely when it  is near the election times, when it seems we only count and they now more seriously  do want to get our votes..

.

Even Prime Minister Stephen Harper by his approaches, objectives, commitments, seems to be trying to reassure firstly his selected elements in his base thus to be assured of their support and votes and too often. “It’s all about winning votes” No I do not think that Trudeau is or will be any better as well.. “ but Harper is so focused on winning votes of particular groups, he does not seem to realize  that winning votes in one group may cancel out votes in another group. How about a leader who is looking at the big picture, like an economy that works for everybody, like a clean environment that benefits everybody, like a justice system that treats everyone fairly? That’s what I’ll vote for.”

.

And what about a leader that actually keeps his past election promises? of transparency, accountability and much more?  Even Stephen Harper has not been great at that as well..

.

IF THE NEW CONSERVATIVE  MINISTERS  AND PRIME MINISTER STEPHEN HARPER NOW  ARE LIARS  AND YOU CANNOT TRUST THEM TO TELL THE TRUTH  MOSTLY THEN WHAT OTHER  MINISTERS  CAN YOU PRESENTLY TRUST?

.

Now why are the clearly foolish Canadian  justice ministers, cops, so foolish still  that they do now even think that they can turn the clock backwards and continue again doing the very same bad things now that they all have even been exposed for what they really are world wide even.. they are bad people who abuse citizens and obstruct justice and do need to be put into prison themselves.

What we can Learn from France

France_Flag

PARIS — France is ordering manufacturers to inform consumers how long they can expect their TV, cell phone or other appliance to last — before they buy it. A new French government decree is  aimed  at fighting so-called planned obsolescence. That is when companies falsely design strategies to limit the life span of appliances, so that consumers will have to replace them. The measure also now requires manufacturers to inform vendors how long spare parts for an appliance will continue to be produced. The vendor is then required to inform the buyer, in writing. Violators face up to 15,000 euros ($16,800) in fines. A similar French measure coming into effect next year will require manufacturers to replace or repair faulty appliances for free for the first two years after purchase.  and how about in Canada?

EDMONTON – A lengthy investigation into the trafficking of steroids within the Edmonton Police Service has resulted in charges and suspensions against two veteran officers, while six others have been removed from their current duties. “Edmontonians expect their police officers to be honest and ethical, and answer to a higher standard,”   “Behaviour contrary to these expectations brings reputational damage to our police service and violates the public trust.”

VANCOUVER — Many years later the RCMP officer who stunned Robert Dziekanski with a Taser at Vancouver’s airport lied at a public inquiry into the Polish immigrant’s death, a judge ruled. Const. Kwesi Millington fired his Taser multiple times after he and three other officers were summoned to Vancouver’s airport in October 2007. Dziekanski, who spoke no English, had been throwing furniture in the international terminal.  Millington’s verdict marks the first time a judge has concluded that one of the officers lied. Another Mountie, Const. Bill Bentley, was acquitted in 2013, while two other cases have not yet concluded.  The Crown alleged the officers colluded on a story to tell homicide investigators and write in their police notes in an attempt to heighten the threat that Dziekianski posed. Prosecutors argued the officers’ statements and notes all contained similar errors, proving they worked together. The Crown further alleged the officers met in the Vancouver area in the days or weeks before testifying at the inquiry in early 2009 to plan their testimony. A witness, whose ex-husband is Bentley’s cousin, told the court the officers met at her home, but the defence presented telephone records, credit card receipts and other evidence to cast doubt on her testimony. The judge  noted that the officer’s errors all exaggerated the threat Dziekanski posed.

Constable Sebastien Grenier was suspended with pay last April while police investigated allegations that the officer had handed out bogus speeding tickets in the Eastern Townships. Grenier will appear in court only on  March 27th. His status with the police force is expected to be re-evaluated in the coming days. Meanwhile he gets fully pay..

Christopher Nicholson has been charged with  breach of trust, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to traffic a controlled substance, the Office of the Police Complaints Commissioner (OPCC) said in a statement released Wednesday.  During the Vancouver Police Department investigation, it says it uncovered further allegations of misconduct against 16 other members of the APD and a total of 148 accusations of misconduct against seventeen members of the Abbotsford Police Department. The accusations include corrupt practice, deceit, and neglect of duty. The OPCC says it has not been able to adequately determine the extent to which prosecutions may have been compromised “due to the lack of adequate disclosure from the police. Deputy Police Complaint Commissioner Rollie Woods says the officers are accused of making up information to secure search warrants. “The concerns raised have an impact of the interplay between key institutional stakeholders within the criminal justice system which include the federal prosecution service, judicial officers and the police. Furthermore, what remains an active concern to the OPCC is the extent to which the search warrants in issue may have contributed to potentially unsafe prosecutions,” reads a statement from the office.

Canada does not have the best Medicare, not even close.. why?

conser-1

Canada’s health-care system compared to other public systems world wide is a let down and the US private system also doesn’t score very well internationally.

.

There are many , many reasons for a start the Doctors and nurses who kill patients, neglect them do not face any negative consequences at all for a start.

.

I have had many American tell me in the US that we have a good Medical system because it is free.. Being free does not  insure a good medical care system if Doctors and Nurses are rarely supervised. The public-private Swiss health system comes first.

.

The Canadian  system also like the U.S. system does  sucks up loads of  money all without producing discernibly better outcomes.

.

In most categories, Canada comes between the middle and the bottom – except in spending, where Canada is in the upper third, per capital.

.

It is the  politicians crap that  Canada having the best Medicare system in the world.

.

” Among 11 countries, Canada ranks last or second-last in getting same- or next-day doctor appointments, finding after-hours care, waiting for more than two months for a specialist appointment or four months for elective surgery.” Getting to see God can be a real nightmare..

.

Canadian patients spend more time in Hospitals per stay, than anywhere else except Japan. Why?  There are too few doctors to look after the patients, the medical system relies on interns  in training and nurses mostly still for the average patient care. Having more beds will not help .

.

Governments, and Hospitals are working  next, now on kicking more people out of hospitals, to  get them out more quickly and still not rather insuring they get helped medically.

.

What does the public think of Medicare? You have to  firstly get admitted to the hospital to find out you are not getting the best care  there possible.

.

When people ask for  “fundamental changes,” what do they mean..  They firstly do want the bad doctors and bad nurses, bad  hospital administrators, fired, discharged not covered up over and over again..

.

The problem is there is not only a lack of accountabilty, but the money is not properly managed.. Ottawa transfers $32-billion a year to the provinces for health care,  but how well is it spent? Many useless  medical test are done in hospitals still as well.

.

So “Ottawa spends another $7.2-billion for specialized health care, including $2.5-billion for aboriginals, $1.1-billion for veterans, $571-million for the military and $614-million for the Public Health Agency. Ottawa also spends money to sponsor medical research.” So what?  Putting more money in pails full of holes is wasteful..

As if the oil downturn, recession is not enough for Alberta

alberta

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency confirmed on Friday that it had found a case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), also known as mad cow disease, in a beef cow in Alberta.  BSE — a progressive, fatal neurological disease — is believed to be spread when cattle eat protein rendered from the brains and spines of infected cattle or sheep. Canada banned that practice in 1997.  Exports of Canadian beef were repeatedly  badly hit in 2003 after the first case of BSE was found on a farm. A fresh discovery of BSE may close borders to Canadian beef and reduce the price of beef for Canadian Consumers again.

.

The  scenario that’s unfolded in Alberta in the past month is frightening .  The drop in oil prices has hit Alberta like a bomb. Few saw it coming.   A long-term over supply means “the new equilibrium price of oil will likely be much lower than over the past decade.”  So the news out of the oil towers in downtown Calgary, Edmonton gets worse every day. Everything from employment to local real estate markets are starting to  seriuosly suffer. Job losses in the Alberta oil patch have become almost daily events in oil patch and are even mounting  as the oil price collapse is pushing the past-vibrant Alberta economy into a dramatic downward spiral,  meaning more than 60,000 lost jobs . The Alberta  Government is facing $21-billion resource revenue shortfall over three years. Finance Minister, Robin Campbell, announced the upcoming budget will have a 9 per cent cut in program spending. In addition, the province will cut five per cent across the board, which will mean a $2.2-billion reduction in overall spending, year over year.  Likely nothing, including health care and education, is considered  untouchable.  “They’re destroying business confidence by threatening to tax anything that moves — tax on sugar, tax on gas, Alberta health-care premiums, and raising our 10-per-cent flat tax rate.”  Alberta’s premier Jim Prentice has said public-sector unions must do their part in light of low oil prices, as he called the present wages for teachers, nurses and other civil servants unsustainable. The cities of Calgary and Edmonton, both of which  depend on significant cash infusions from the province, will likely have to put their dreams on hold for a long while.The budget cuts trigger outrage in Alberta.  ” The news was reminiscent of the mid-1990s when then-premier Ralph Klein — faced with a crippling, $20-billion debt — gutted parts of the provincial civic service, eliminating thousands of jobs. Grants to schools, hospitals, universities and municipalities were frozen. ”  People in other parts of the country are saying  Albertans have not resided in real world for some time.  Only now are there concerns about the Alberta’s poor as the spending reductions could have severe consequences for family, child and disability agencies that rely on government grants to pay staff and administer social services. The pain felt elsewhere in Canada  now in Alberta is real.

.

Never mind what the spin doctors will say about Alberta’s future, the  present home of Canada’s prime Mister Stephen Harper  as the present reality is  that Alberta is mainly an  oil and gas, tourists, dependent on its resource sector and  the province has long relied on both the economic activity and the direct revenue from royalties and land sales to underpin government budgets but now this bubble has burst again,  the Oil’s price plunge means a bumpy ride in  all  sales, the economy in Alberta.   ‘Oil Prices are not going to bounce back:’ Prentice gloomy about quick oil recovery. Oil’s price collapse sends shiver across Alberta’s real estate market. Home prices fall also  in Calgary as real estate chill deepens.  Sales are down 7.5 per cent versus a year ago, while the  new listings have   “gushed” 42 per cent higher.  The Bank of Canada’s decision this week to slash its trend-setting interest rate a quarter of a percentage point to 0.75 per cent will not help to pay the high home mortgages many have there. You also cannot borrow more money, or buy more when facing a job cut.  School fees in Alberta triple in five years.   The out-of-pocket cost of sending a child to public schools in Alberta nearly tripled in five years as boards became increasingly dependent on fees to meet their budgets, and the Edmonton police are focusing more energy on   property crimes which  have climbed significantly. There have been 23 break and enters, 28 thefts from vehicles, and 20 thefts of vehicles in the area during the first few weeks of 2015. That is double number of property crimes the neighbourhood experienced at the same time in 2014 .  “The fact that these school fees have increased during a period when this province had record revenues is just not fair to the average Alberta family,”

Alberta’s surprise recessions are not much of a surprise to the wise… for false pride still comes before a great fall.. lay off the too many abusive cops, bad city hall employees as well in Alberta and save the money now too. You have to be rather kind, nice to everyone, even the Albertans now too, cause you do not know to whom you will go begging for help next as well.  In reality History repeats itself.. remember the 1980’s. 2009-10 when in Alberta Jobs were lost, homes went into foreclosures, property values went down due the flood of homes for sale on the market. divorce increased. Sadly they in Alberta do not learn not the first, second or the third time. When they were rich, proud and arrogant the Conservative leaders of Alberta were too proud to heed to others, to take advice… but now that they are facing serious ,drastic economic downturn they merely pretend they are ready to listen.. and how long will that next last? Instead of saving , planning effectively for a rain days the politicians of Alberta were living high on the hog, spending the citizens money, and not really caring about the citizens own good welfare. ” The Alberta government didn’t have a plan unless you consider shovelling money out the back door as fast as it came in the front to be a plan. “Making use of the revenues” meant spending the revenues. When times were good it outspent every other province in the country on a per-capita basis. It may have been a Conservative government in name, but its spending was liberal, in every sense of the word. Many Albertans told them to save more, even the Liberals. It might be hard for many Canadians, particularly in hard-hit Ontario, to feel much sympathy for this western province. After all, there was a distinct cockiness in the way “The New West” asserted its newfound position of fiscal superiority this decade over Central Canada in particular.” They had often rubbed it all proudly in our face, Alberta’s wealth, it’s importance, no taxes, a great future, and what ever before that.. Because too many Albertans were openly bashing the poor people for decades as well, now they too do have to walk in a poor man’s shoes themselves.. I REMEMBER WHEN MANY ARROGANT ALBERTANS, POLITICIANS USED TO FALSELY BOAST ON THE NET ABOUT THEIR PROSPERITY.. and I would reply they need to be really now more considerate of the poor people and the rest of Canada for they too will ONE DAY be on social aid, EVEN asking other Canadians to help them.. it is funny how reality comes to pass with time even in Alberta.

The OIL PRICE DROPS impacts are spreading across the economy, which the arrogant government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper has held up as being a huge beneficiary of energy-sector expansion. Alberta and other provinces reaped major financial rewards as the industry plowed tens of billions of dollars into operations and hired armies of workers as oil boomed. No more!  “The oil downturn is also complicating Ottawa’s finances as the federal government prepares a pre-election budget , the price collapse prompted the government to delay its 2015 budget. The Finance Minister Joe Oliver’s Nov. 12 economic update projected a $1.9-billion (Canadian) surplus for the coming year based on an assumption of $81 (U.S.) oil. Since then, the Bank of Canada has opted to use $55 oil for its forecasts, and earlier economic projections of a significant rebound in prices this year have evaporated in recent weeks.” The country’s largest private mortgage insurer Genworth MI Canada Inc.,  says it expects rising losses on its portfolio of Alberta mortgages this year.  The Alberta mortgages in the last two years,  borrowers tended to have relatively high loan-to-value ratio, with equity averaging just 16 per cent in 2013 and 9 per cent in 2014, due to slow home price appreciation and borrowers paying off less of the principal on their mortgages in those years, the company had  said. Genworth Canada’s own stock has plummeted 25 per cent since November.

IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE THAT THE BAD GUYS DO NOT LIKE THE TABLE TURNED AGAINST THEM.. TO BAD FOR THEM.. I LIVED IN ALBERTA FOR 15 YEARS AND I SAW THAT THEY THEY HAD FALSELY REFUSED TO SEE THE HAND WRITING ON THE WALL.. TOO OFTEN TOO.

.

(Mat 7:3 KJV)  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5  Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

.

Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit;  (Jer 9:6 KJV)  

.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7

.

In the last 10 years, crime rates have fallen roughly 27 per cent but costs have risen 44 per cent in policing and 33 per cent in corrections. Our prisoner population has managed to stay constant.  Is that a paradox? Or is that because those in the system are smart enough to ensure they all keep working and our prisons remain full, even though there are far fewer crimes. Also the report notes “the most embarrassing lacunae in Canadian data” is the lack of useful information on our courts — “we have no systemic way of assessing whether the courts are getting more or less effective in dealing with the cases that they see, let alone understanding how much as a society we are paying. For a developed nation, this is disappointing to say the least … How bad is it?”  It’s appalling — even mischief cases take more than half a year on average to process.  First Nations represent about four per cent of the population but more and more of them are being imprisoned — from 13 per cent of the offenders in custody in 1998 to 20 per cent a decade later. In Saskatchewan, 80 per cent of inmates are native. In Manitoba it’s 70 per cent, in (Racists) Alberta 40 per cent.In those three provinces, aboriginal people also are least likely to be given probation or conditional sentences. That is a major scandal that demands investigation..  http://www.vancouversun.com/Mulgrew+Cost+crime+rises+crime+rate+falls/10296393/story.html

Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves very ones best interest… too often still missing in the PROFESSIONAL BODIES, EVEN IN THE RCMP, police   forces, churches, ALL GOVERNMENTS  as well it seems too.

Canada’s revenue agency is not just a tax collector, but also as a criminal investigator.

MESSIANCS

 

If you are worried about the Canadian government keeping a secret file on you, stop worrying it has been doing that for decades by various means, in various places. Such as the Post Office.

.

OTTAWA — The federal revenue agency can now hand the police possible evidence of serious crime — including terrorist activity — that it happens to come across while reviewing taxpayer files. The Canada Revenue Agency gained the little-noticed new authority, which does not require a judicial warrant, through an amendment tucked into the government’s most recent omnibus budget bill. Previously, confidentiality provisions in the law prevented the agency from handing information about suspected wrongdoing, on its own initiative, to law enforcement. The exception was information that pointed to tax-related crimes.  The new provisions apply to offences including breaking and entering, vehicle theft, arson, corruption and kidnapping. They also allow authorities to pass along information about any offence with a minimum prison term, or one with a maximum sentence of 14 years.The list of offences is disturbingly broad and amounts to a fundamental change in allowing the agency to hand information to police without a court-ordered warrant — even when the alleged crimes have nothing to do with taxes

If you are worried about Revenue Canada’s effectiveness too, stop here too, they are not even capable to catch most of the people working under the table and not paying taxes even.

Everyone can and should be held accountable even for their acts and their words now too.. no matter who you are too.  Accountability needs to start with the politicians, civil and public servants firstly and not just the ordinary folks..  And do not forget the Federal Conservatives. You know, the people who had  claimed many years ago they were going to clean up Ottawa and end entitlements and misspending and were going to show us all a better way.. and now next  they did the same bad thing as all the others.. they even falsely still refuse to be accountiable for their expense accounts .. they clearly also  now have  much too many unacceptable liars still. We all tend to know by now that the crooks on their own do falsely  deny any guilt or wrong doings now  too. Water unrestrained runs down hill, so do self supervised Professionals, Doctors, Nurses, Cops, Mayors, Civil and Public Servants, RCMP,  Business persons  now too..  and self supervision does not work as  it tends to be only masturbation and not the real thing still too. The existing justice system has been the subject of persistent criticism from those who charge  that even the police are biased in favour of their fellow officers, establishment  and there is no  guarantee of impartiality, fairness. Civil liberty groups, student federations and social, human rights  activists have been rightfully calling even for an open,  full public inquiry into what they call excessive force against the Quebec Students by the police last spring and summer. An estimated 3,000 people were arrested or abused  during more than four months of widespread Quebec protests, social unrest. The other unacceptable Malaise of sweeping refuse, shit under the rug.. the civil servant managers serious, personal failure to deal with ther unacceptable, crooked, dishonest, thieving subordinates rather than disposing of them, firing them, putting then into the garbage bins is still needed as some people only learn to do good the hard way, when they feel real negative repercussions. I strongly suggest we get rid of these bad managers, firstly, immediately, all bad cops included..

free speech, inappropriate speech, hate speech and censorship

free speech
 .
There is difference between free speech, inappropriate speech, hate speech and censorship, unlawful use of authority, as we all can tend to know the Cops, Politicians, Pastors, Crooks, Muslims, Jews, Hindus etc. tend  too  like to censor falsely any speech that is negative about their acts, behavior, lies. Yes many persons falsely seek to demonize those with whom they disagree.
 .
Some recent legislation has targeted at the so-called “hate speech.” Seeking to relieve certain groups from psychological distress resulting from discriminatory communication, these laws limit the extent to which derogatory statements can be made regarding differences of race, sex, and religion, but just because I state some basic truths about specific groups and they falsely do not want to hear it, admit, have it known does not make my remarks a hate speech.
 .
Sadly the  Gays, Jews,  Muslims, and some others tend to define any negative criticisms of their behavior falsely as hate speech.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the world’s major sources of instability.
1- Israel currently has 262 Jewish-only settlements and ‘outposts’ built on confiscated Palestinian land. Palestinians do not have any settlements on Israeli land.
2- The Israeli unemployment rate is 5.8%, while the Palestinian unemployment in the West Bank is 22.5% and 41% in Gaza.
3- 133 Israeli children have been killed by Palestinians and 2,060 Palestinian children have been killed by Israelis since September 29, 2000
4 -1,195 Israelis and at least 9,826 Palestinians have been killed since September 29, 2000.
5- 11,018 Israelis and 71,841 Palestinians have been injured since September 29, 2000.
6 – During Fiscal Year 2014, the U.S. is providing Israel with at least $8.5 million per day in military aid and $0 in military aid to the Palestinians.
7 – Israel has been targeted by at least 77 UN resolutions and the Palestinians have been targeted by 1
8 – 0 Israelis are being held prisoner by Palestinians, while 6,500 Palestinians are currently imprisoned by Israel.
9- 0 Israeli homes have been demolished by Palestinians and at least 28,000 Palestinian homes have been demolished by Israel since 1967

anti-semitism 4
.
Freedom of religion does not apply to Islam, cause it is a cult, it demands blind loyalty, obedience to it’s false teachings. The dividing line between extremism and civility, authoritarianism and democracy, today is increasingly drawn along this line: For lack of any coherent ideologies, many of today’s extremists are fuelled on pure demand for silent adulation and blind faith.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/04/24/should-we-deport-all-muslims-from-canada/

Hate speech2
.

Criticism of Israel is not anti-Semitic.

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/11/12/criticism-of-israel-is-not-anti-semitic/

.

FALSELY ACCORDING TO THE LYING JEWS THERE IS NO RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH IF YOU TELL A NEGaTIVE TRUTH ABOUT THE JEWS, Israel?  Hate speech today often  means anything the Jews firstly  hate to hear, especially the truth about themselves..
.
Now there is no such thing as free speech in the sense of unlimited speech.  Free speech is simply a useful term to focus the  attention on a particular form of appropriate  human interaction and the phrase is not meant to suggest that all speech should never be interfered with appropriately.
.
Still we have no fundamental human right not to be offended in public discourse .  The laws did not protect the dignity of the white supremacist deeply offended by the message of racial equality and de-segregation advocated by the civil rights movement in 1960s or the  Jews being exposed for abusing the  Palestinians, or Muslims falsely  forcing their faith falsely on others.
.
Freedom of speech and the right to be heard as well should be the rights of all of the citizens;  on the other hand, this freedom nor it; suppression  is not an absolute as  some persons falsely think that it is.  Some forms of speech are rightfully  thoroughly to be outlawed  such as lying, fraudulent advertising, child pornography, obscenity, fighting words, slander, help-wanted ads that discriminate on the basis of race, words used in a criminal transaction, unlicensed broadcasts, libel, speech that infringes a copyright, and unauthorized disclosure of some data .   Governments may regulate, or censor speech if it  a viable public concern, or threatens national safety.
.
Dealing with supposedly Hate speech alone  are ineffective; they simply do not work, as the  simultaneously do not address the central motives that drive hate speech. More valid action is required here. Some advocates of more hate speech codes, due to the reality the emotional pains that some  speech sometimes causes, are willing to risk denying citizens of rights in order to spare the objective individuals from psychological discomfort . Neglects the basic reason  that the specific  minority groups and those wanting hate speech codes ultimately hope to gain: a false  actual “change in public opinion”, not a “change of heart” in which individuals forcefully  suppress,  give up their rightful views. This is still a false denial of  someone’s rights to speak and to be hard. It doesn’t matter what sensitivities were hurt. It doesn’t matter what deity, religion, or prophet was lampooned. No one has the right to take someone else’s life just because their feelings were hurt.
.
There has been and will always be differences between people. The solution to cutting remarks and emotionally charged communication is not to merely limit the thoughts and opinions a person can express. A person should be allowed express their opinions in a non-violent matter. If a person acts unlawfully also  in doing so, that person should be punished, using existing generic codes, because of his/her literal actions, not thoughts or opinions. At the same time, minority groups can  use that same freedom of speech to peaceably educate the  others, the public and work on the root of the problem, and in doing so effect a voluntary change in public opinion.
.

There is inappropriate speech..   The Islamic massacre at the offices of Charlie Hebdo was, of course, an attack on free speech. It has inspired worldwide support for freedom of speech.   In the aftermath of what happened at the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris there were a limited, but noticeable, number of political comments bordering on defending  the murders. The comments didn’t go as far as saying the people deserved to be killed but people tried to excuse what happened. Including some Catholic leaders. Their comments were  inappropriate speech. ” I’m not really sure what more evidence they need. Muslims attacked and killed people working for a satirical newspaper well known for lampooning Muhammad and Islam (as well as other religions and religious figures). The gunmen were Muslims. They were heard shouting “We have avenged the Prophet Muhammad” and “God is Great” in Arabic (“Allahu Akbar”). This was a religion inspired attack by religious people for religious reasons. Sharia calls for death for Blasphemy. The gunmen, despite having no authority to do so, were enforcing this law. A religion was insulted. A religion was defended by religious people and it was done with murderous consequences.” To suggest Islam had nothing to do with it is the height of either stupidity, naivete or immorality. Clearly the Sharia law needs to be banned, prohibited as well..  There *is* an issue within Islam and that issue is that Sharia law says that blasphemy is punishable by death. all persons  need to put pressure on Islamic leaders to renounce this law and demand that the Islamic leaders declare that Islam also *is* open to criticism and satire. According to the data from an American survey published here

  • 58% said “no” When asked, “Do you believe that criticism of Islam or Muhammad should be permitted under the Constitution’s First Amendment?”
  • 45% of respondents agreed “…that those who criticize or parody Islam in the U.S. should face criminal charges,”
  • 32% believed “…Sharia law should be the supreme law of the land in the US.”
The more these people accept that Islam is not above criticism, they more they accept that blasphemy is *not* punishable, and the more vocal they are about that to their community leaders, the less likely it is that people will be killed for drawing cartoons.

Philippians 3: 18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

.

James 3:
1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.
2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.
3 Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

Mountie charged with trafficking cocaine and Ecstasy

0canada-rcmp-security-2010-e

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 21, 2015  A Saskatchewan Mountie has been charged with trafficking cocaine and Ecstasy, the RCMP said

The now-suspended officer has been on the force nearly seven years and was stationed in Swift Current as a general duty constable since 2012, the RCMP said.

“It’s very disheartening that a serving police officer, sworn to uphold the law, is facing criminal charges,” RCMP Supt. Alfredo Bangloy said in a statement. ”

.

“An Ontario Provincial Police officer working out of a detachment in the east region has been charged with criminal harassment. The OPP’s professional standards bureau launched an investigation into the provincial constable in September 2014 after a complaint was filed.  The 37-year-old officer was arrested four months later on Jan. 29. He is charged with two counts of criminal harassment and one count of unlawfully being in a dwelling. He is scheduled to appear in court in Renfrew on March 25. The man is a 13-year member of the OPP and is “presently on leave,” OPP said in a media release. His name is not being released in order to protect the identity of the victim.” and if you belive this you are dumb, really dumb..

.

Look the RCMP even had known   for years specifics details by wire tapping about the Corruption in the Quebec city halls and they next still did nothing good about it..

.

People in leadership office do have to face higher penalties as an example now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included  are always to be exemplary in behavior,  conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary  judged, prosecuted  for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks.

.

Too many police officers are now too often guilty of their most serious neglect of public trust and their duty. The related truth is that neither an independent police investigation, a new police commissioner,  a promised provincial or federal investigation, or just more politicians promises too often still   will not bring the much needed justice. All of the governments can prohibit the initial and further employment of any known racists for any jobs, and can  punish them for their racists acts, views. Police managers continue to promise the reforming of bad cops and the bad cops keep killing, abusing  innocent persons. The possible retraining of bad  police officers is always anyway a false myth. What thus is always needed is the real  the dismissal, criminal prosecution, of the guilty cops. So where is it? Speeding is not the main cause of car accidents, impaired driving is, but too many cops are alcoholics it seems who wrongfully do sympathize with drunks and as a result do not arrest drunks all year .. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/07/18/we-all-do-know-it-is-merely-the-tip-of-a-large-iceberg/

I support this- Free education at all Levels

free eduation 7

Our public servants, politicians  too often do abuse, steal our tax money, eat in fine restaurants, travel abroad at our expense, should rather start to care about the rest of us!

President Obama says he wants Americans to view college as they do high school – a necessary step up the education ladder that anyone can take if he or she wants. That’s why he’s proposing an ambitious federal-state partnership to boost tuition assistance for students at public community colleges, he says. “What I’d like to see is the first two years of community college be free for everybody who’s willing to work for it,” Mr. Obama said

The public funding of Quebec universities is a crucial investment for the future of our society, The government’s rapid and resolute cost-cutting exercise is sowing uncertainty, antagonizing the populace and jeopardizing universities’ abilities to fulfill their mission. Nothing at this time justifies such a rigid schedule for achieving a zero deficit. If the government cuts too much too quickly, it will create another deep deficit — an educational deficit — that will affect society for decades. I know the goal is to leave Quebec prosperous for generations to come. To achieve this, we must have healthy universities.

The Finns also see education as a long-term investment, a cost of doing business as an advanced economy. Education is free from daycare to graduate school — not only for Finns, but anyone else who wants an education there. Since many post-secondary programs are in English, this brings in hordes of bright young foreign students. About half of them go home as friends of Finland; the other half stay, settle down, and help build their new country.

Consider another small country that offers free advanced education: Cuba. Since 1999, the Cubans have run the Latin American School of Medicine, perhaps the biggest medical school in the world. It offers free medical training to some 19,500 international students, meeting the standards of the Medical Board of California. Many of its graduates go home to care for poor people in their own countries, and hundreds are now working in West Africa to fight Ebola. In over fifty years of exporting medical aid, the Cubans have not only made money, but earned enormous international good will.   Even the Americans, have praised the Cubans’ battles against cholera in Haiti and Ebola in West Africa.

Now  to our own surprise, we turned out to be pretty good at teaching immigrants’ children and preparing them for more than hewing wood and drawing water, But not our own kids.. why is that?

.

Recently, the government of Lower Saxony (a German state) decided to abolish tuition fees and make Germany a tuition-free country once again. Free tuition-supporters in this country have noticed this development and are now asking, “Why not Canada?”

It is within this context that the Nova Scotia branch of the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) published a report in September calling for the elimination of all provincial university tuition fees by 2026.

CFS regional chairperson Anna Dubinski says that student debt hinders the province’s economy by deterring people from attending post-secondary institutions. The CFS argues that abolishing tuition fees would lead to greater participation in post-secondary education at little overall cost to the provincial treasury.

.

All children in Quebec should have free access to public primary and secondary education, says group,  Majority of Quebec students now want free education.  .

During the 2012 student strike movement, then-Fédération étudiante collégiale du Québec president Léo Bureau-Blouin argued in favour of a freeze on university tuition fees. An MNA for the PQ since September 2012, he now calls the government’s indexation of tuition fees a “great compromise” and “a big victory for students.” “I defended a tuition fee freeze when I was a student representative and I still believe this is a great way to increase accessibility to post-secondary education,” he said.   http://thelinknewspaper.ca/article/5808 

 

CLASSE, which speaks for 100,000 Quebec students, says free education is entirely achievable and used a march attended by several hundred people on Saturday to highlight the issue. “Our struggle for accessibility to higher education is not yet over,” said Jérémie Bédard-Wien, a spokesman for CLASSE.  CLASSE says it wants education to be completely accessible by being entirely free.     http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/with-quebecs-tuition-hikes-defeated-classe-presses-on-for-free-education/article4561489/

.

Free Medicare, Free education, as with free dental care and free public transit, are really a must.

.

Eliminating tuition fees for university students is an  efficient policy idea. Students themselves share in the benefits of higher education through increased lifetime earnings and the citizens next as well though the earned taxes paid. And we’d raise the quality of our own teachers by making their training free as well — if they qualify. And when the Students all do graduate, they shouldn’t have to struggle to pay bills for food, shelter or clothing, and thus will not be a burden to the state.

.

And  the Quebec government’s proposal to create a new watchdog to oversee universities  and Hospitals now as well is valid, natural.. some of the biggest crooks are even the educated folks..  and our Doctors, Nurses, Hospitals and the Police, RCMP are also now very poorly managed too ALL AT THE TAXPAYER’S EXPENSES.

Ironically and hypocritically  while the  Liberal Quebec Premier Jean Charest faced even still very numerous QUEBEC STUDENT PROTESTS about his plans to RAISE UNIVERSITY EDUCATION COSTS SIGNIFICANTLY and now also  faced  a new political  candidacy, the  anti-corruption hero Jacques Duchesneau, who had just  announced Sunday he is running for the Coalition Avenir Québec party , yes all while  the anti-corruption platform is also still  dominating too  headlines issue  in the Quebec province throughout the early days of this  QUEBEC  PROVINCIAL  ELECTION Campaign,  the same JEAN CHAREST HAD NOW  ALSO  NEXT HAD CLEARLY INDULGED in more corruption  by trying to BUY  VOTES, when he said, would  give $100 per child every year to families with children in public elementary schools. The initiative would begin in 2013 and would cost an estimated $45 million a year, assuming 450,000 eligible children. No money AVAILABLE  for university students Jean Charest  and his Liberals HAD CLEARLY said before his threat of clearly losing the election ehh..   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/08/06/quebec-election-no-money-available-for-university-students/
