The Unseen elephant in the room.. what to do with the elderly?

canada-seniors-abuse1 
Financially subsidising a relative who looks after a parent is a good idea, less costly too over an old age home.
.
At the present time in the province of Quebec even there is room for one in eight seniors that need to be placed in an old age homes, seniors who can no longer look after themselves and their family refuses to do so ..
.
On top of that there is not enough existing staff to look after the seniors in the old age homes.. Doctors and Nurses included.. Seniors tend to be more ill, sicker, need more nursing care, more distribution of  pills, more looking after, more bed linen changing too,  and a ratio of one nurse to 40 senior patients is totally inadequate.. never mind if they have seriously ill patients.. and forget any care during the night even..
.
So what is the government best proposed solution on this matter.. Euthanasia, kill them.. especially if no family members object and no family members visit them for two weeks.. you just stop feeding them and stop giving them any water and they will be dead within 5 days..
.
MONTREAL — Seniors who need health care but do not want to be institutionalized will soon have the means to be looked after at home, Quebec Health Minister Réjean Hébert said But it is not proven to work yet even.. Critics say the bill opens the door to private-for-profit companies rather than through the public network..   http://www.newswire.ca/en/story/1277885/quebec-s-self-insurance-approach-to-home-support-expands-options-for-seniors

Quebec has one of the worst Hospital and medical  services and it neglects seniors too..  Dorval old age home death deemed murder..The coroner’s office conducted an investigation into the man’s death following an incident at the Maison Herron, at 2400 Herron, Dorval Quebec https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/01/24/this-has-been-going-on-wrongfully-for-ages-unchecked-still/

Quebec woman beaten to death by seniors’ home workers.  LONGUEUIL, Que. – Police have launched an investigation and seized surveillance footage after a woman died at a seniors’ home south of Montreal. A source told QMI Agency that the footage shows two staff members beating a woman. “In the video, there are two nurses who are beating a resident at length,” the anonymous source said. “The family had hidden cameras in their mother’s room.”  http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Crime/2013/12/03/21312316.html

Two Montreal-area caregivers accused of mistreating elderly patient Two Quebec caregivers face criminal charges after an elderly woman living in a South Shore long-term health-care centre was allegedly abused and given a noxious substance. … Workers at long-term care facility allegedly illegally administered medication to patient. Immacula Eugène, 51, and Marie-Margaret Pétimé, 46, were each arraigned in Longueuil on Tuesday on two charges of drug trafficking, two of conspiracy and two of administering a noxious substance. Eugène was also charged with armed assault. The alleged crimes took place last July. The 87-year-old victim died two months later but it was only on Nov. 21 that police received a complaint from someone close to her.

New stricter rules for private seniors’ homes are on the way.

New stricter rules for private seniors’ homes are on the way.The Quebec government announced Wednesday it wants better-trained staff in more than 2,000 private residences, where more than 100,000 elderly people live. It wants to pass new regulations to make sure every private seniors’ home follows the same rules, including rules on bathwater temperature controls – a move that comes after at least ten Quebec seniors have died after being scalded by bath water in recent years.The government also wants tougher standards for sprinkler systems, more training for staff and two new categories of residents – autonomous and semi-autonomous – with new procedures for both. Residences that don’t comply will face consequences, said Health and Seniors Minister Réjean Hebert.“If some of these residences are not conforming to those rules, they will shut down,” he said. “I think it’s for the benefit of the elderly people who will find security and well-being in other places.”

Pauline Marois 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. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/01/26/education-does-not-insure-morality-nor-are-professionals-better-persons/

I have been posting about the unacceptable seniors abuses in Quebec’s old age homes, hospitals , for 2 years to no avail. The too often lazy, immoral, pretentious Police themselves do not want any responsibility in the matter. Unenforced laws are still bullshit as a result.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/11/18/i-wrote-for-about-2-years-even-on-the-net-that-the-quebec-government-allows-the-abuse-of-the-seniors/

Finally Police probe McGill hospital contract

.

.
Not much of a surprise? The tip of the iceberg is being revealed only as  the overall depth of corruption will take much more time apparently to uncover, corruptions that likley permeates the whole project. Birds of feathers tend to flock together. And no one should tell us that  these initial suspected persons, now  were even  just isolated individuals acting on their own without the vast help and knowledge of any others now too. Higher education never insures one’s good moral standings.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/26/mcgill-administrators-likley-run-their-hospitals-the-same-way/
.
Quebec’s police task force on corruption is probing the billion-dollar contract for McGill Montreal mega-hospital awarded to a consortium led by Montreal engineering giant SNC Lavalin Group Inc. SNC-led consortium had won the McGill University Health Centre contract. Police raid the McGill University Health Centre . Up until six months ago, the hospital project had been overseen by Riadh Ben Aissa, a former head of SNC’s construction division, and also a central figure in an ongoing scandal. One of SNC’s original subcontractors in the project was a company controlled by construction magnate Antonio (Tony) Accurso – a controversial figure who now is also facing fraud and corruption charges. The hospital deal was put together under the watch of the previous chief executive of the health centre, Arthur Porter who left his own job under a cloud late last year. Arthur Porter had been appointed chair of the federal government’s security-intelligence watchdog agency, when his African business dealings with an arms dealer were revealed. Dr. Porter stepped down from both jobs. The Quebec government has earmarked $2.35-billion for an effort to reconstruct Montreal hospitals, the lion’s share going to the McGill University Health Centre campus. “Quebec’s anti-corruption unit has put several high-profile figures in its crosshairs since being established last year. It has arrested construction magnates such as Mr. Accurso and Paolo Catania, as well as Frank Zampino, a former city councillor who was the right-hand man of Montreal Mayor Gérald Tremblay.”  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/police-probe-mcgill-hospital-contract-awarded-to-snc-lavalin/article4551179/
.

MONTREAL – A second investigation has been launched stemming from the Police raids at the MUHC’s headquarters. According to a search warrant filed with the Quebec  courts, there are allegations  that former MUHC Director Stella Lopreste may have defrauded the McGill  University Health Centre out of as much as $1.6 million over 10 years.It is alleged that the money was used for the purchase of personal  items. Lopreste left the MUHC in 2011. http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/sq-conducting-second-muhc-investigation-1.967628

.

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — For more than a year, reporters have tried without success to reach Arthur Porter, a mysterious figure who occupied important, sensitive positions in Canada before controversies erupted and forced his resignations. He left the country, leaving serious questions and allegations unanswered.An oncologist by trade, Dr. Porter was appointed by Stephen Harper’s government in 2010 to chair Canada’s Security and Intelligence Review Committee, which oversees the national spy agency, CSIS. He was also in charge of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), one of the country’s largest public health agencies where, it was recently disclosed, a number of financial irregularities occurred during Dr. Porter’s leadership. This week, the National Post found Dr. Porter working inside a private cancer clinic that he owns and operates in this sunny Caribbean city. Would Dr. Porter, 56, ever return to Canada? “What for?” he replied curtly. “It’s a question that I don’t choose to answer at this time.”  http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/01/10/the-elusive-arthur-porter-scandal-plagued-former-spy-watchdog-found-ailing-in-nassau/

.

Dr Arthur Porter  it seems to gain sympathy has indicated recently  he has cancer and is being treated for it in his own hospital.. well I do not believe him.. he has clearly been a con man and a liar much too long time.

“Executives at engineering giant SNC-Lavalin Group Inc., won’t comment on allegation $22.5M payment linked to MUHC super hospital project. Leslie Quinton, an SNC-Lavalin spokesperson, was quoted in the La Presse  as presently not wishing to confirm or deny that $22.5 million of the questionable payments that surfaced earlier this year involved the super hospital contract.” The persons at the receiving end of the bribe as well is yet to be fully confirmed..

Here is what I have found interesting.. Now for decades I too have known that association with money tends to tempt and to corrupt people, the Judas syndrome, and follow the money trail, the oldest rule of Journalism.. and I have even decades ago  written that it is still  an understated fact that the corruption most often exists firstly  in the purchasing, procurements departments even  in Corporations, Governments, Hospitals, Public and Civil Services and yet  no many persons has been  arrested, exposed for that. until recently in Quebec, at least.  Now as per  the Major Montreal Hospitals  and  the City of Montreal I too do still just cannot believe that less than a handful of civil and public servants   were , crooked in the procurement, tender departments now even for decades.. all an unbelievable unblemished record.. and why was that now realy?
.

Kuwait deal uses MUHC doctors and nurses  A private Montreal company with close ties to the McGill University Health Centre signed a five-year, $86-million hospital-services agreement with the government of Kuwait in 2010, a deal that makes regular use of MUHC doctors and nurses.. Under the deal, the MUHC is to be paid by the private company, Montreal Medical  International Inc. (MMI). However, an accounting of those funds has never  appeared on any MUHC annual reports or other public document. The Régie de l’assurance-maladie du Québec is investigating the business model  of Medical Second Opinion to determine if it confirms with the Quebec medicare  law, as MUHC doctors are providing therapeutic advice to patients who have  private insurance.

.

He claims he can be a competent premier but  Dr. Porter’s relationship with Dr. P. Couillard, who was Quebec’s health minister  and now the Premier of Quebec too, at the time, appears to be far more extensive than previously thought.  Couillard, claims he did not know that his long time business partner was a crook must have really really bad jugdement  or is lying.  Not only did Couillard and Porter go on fishing trips when Porter served as chief executive officer of the MUHC, he says, but Porter claims that Couillard phoned him every day for political advice.  http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Arthur+Porter+dishes+dirt+Harper+Couillard/10188705/story.html

but the same person Dr Couillard could not spot a crook even as he worked with him for years..  but I can work with a person one day and likely tell you if he is a crook, immoral or not..  and that is why I tend to spell Liberals as Lieberals..  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/09/18/unbeliveable-disgusting-what-a-clai/

PS The penalty for while collar crimes still tends to be ludicrous.. A judge has sentenced a bookkeeper to two years in prison for defrauding a family-run Toronto business of $653,000. Christine Trotter started crying Tuesday when Justice John McMahon told her he could not agree to the conditional sentence recommended by her lawyer after she pleaded guilty to one count of fraud over $5,000. http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/crime/article/1261898–bookkeeper-jailed-2-years-for-defrauding-toronto-firm  just 2 years?

Seriously I would now still investigate all purchases made at the McGill University Health Centres Hospitals..

.
Now how about my complaints  also about the too often perverse Quebec and Hopsital Ombudsmen, Hopsital administrators who falsely  tend to turn their blind eyes to the inadeqaucies, wrong doings of their assciates and subordinates  coming along too? https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/08/16/the-dishonest-pretentious-quebec-hospital-ombudsmen-health-ministers/

Quebec is also known to be too soft on crimes https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/09/09/the-federal-and-the-quebec-governments-are-undeniably-soft-on-crime-social-welfare-abusers-tax-evaders-new-arrivals/

QUEBEC is continualy DIRTY

STOP ALL OF THE ABUSE OF TAXPAYER’S MONIES NOW!

.

It has been an undeniable known fact that for decades and decades too many of the Quebec’s politicians and all of the related political parties now have wrongfully been too soft on crime, criminals even  in the municipal. provincial, federal governments, and above all even amongst themselves, and even at the professional levels.. We have had perversity involved even in building a Montreal Hospital, even in the Mayor’s own executive office. Bad management of resources and personnel is an unacceptable  sad fact of life here even in Hospitals, and with the Police, not just in the governments, and no one cared to deal with it. Tax evasion is an ongoing fact of life too.

.
 

MONTREAL—Montreal city council approved a series of projects worth $36 million on Monday night, including three contracts to firms connected to construction magnate Tony Accurso. Deemed “urgent” by the mayor, the work was approved despite strong resistance from the opposition. “It was a heartbreaking ethical dilemma,” said Olivier Lapierre, the spokesman for Louise Harel. “Some of those companies have been recognized guilty of fraud.” At the city council meeting on Monday, Harel objected vehemently to the votes being brought to the floor despite a provincial law requiring public bodies to stop doing work with firms found guilty of fraud.“We cannot accept being forced to vote knowing that certain legal moves were used to skirt the law,” said Harel on the council floor. According to Bill 35, the province’s construction regulator is required to strip firms of the right to bid for contracts after directors are found guilty of corruption. To circumvent the law, companies either remove offending directors or operate at arms-length from parties found guilty of fraud.One of Quebec’s richest men, Accurso has been arrested by both provincial and federal investigators on two separate occasions over the past six months. Operating over a dozen companies, the Surete du Quebec has identified a complex structure whereby Accurso indirectly runs companies registered in the names of family members.The Vision Montreal leader called for the mayor to join her in asking the provincial government to close the loophole that allowed for the contracts to go to Accurso-connected firms on Monday.According to Harel, Mayor Gerald Tremblay only complained about the loophole in June after a letter was sent from her office to Municipal Affairs Minister Laurent Lessard. “There is an urgency about contracts now, but the mayor was slow to move during the entire year,” said Lapierre. “Why did he wait?” http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/opposition-in-ethical-dilemma-as-three-contracts-voted-to-accurso-firms-1.923455

.

Proper medical care and not pretentious Medicare is still our Canadian right. And anyone who denies it needs to be incarcerated! Doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, Premiers, Ministers included. We pay a significant part of the Doctors, Nurse education, development , Training  and then they falsely try to abuse it to us by their deliberate poor performances.  If you are a medical professional, a medical administrator, or a health minister and you had now failed to prevent the death of one persons even, or had specialty failed to properly treat their medical condition then that certainly is a prosecutable criminal offence and for certainty you need to be incarcerated for your coldness,, indifference towards others now too.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/11/03/a-long-term-care-home-employee-faces-a-criminal-negligence-charge/

Quebec election: No money AVAILABLE for university students

.

.
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..
.

A hero was born last September, when Jacques Duchesneau’s report for the  Quebec transport department on construction collusion was leaked to the media  (by Duchesneau himself, he recently revealed.) After Duchesneau concluded testifying on the pervasiveness of “dirty money”  in Quebec politics last June before the Charbonneau Commission, created as a  result of his leak, people approached him in public to encourage him to run for  office.They got their wish on Sunday, when François Legault introduced the  anti-corruption crusader as a candidate for Legault’s fledgling Coalition Avenir  Québec party.  http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Duchesneau+potential+game+changer/7049185/story.html

.

Jacques Duchesneau presently states that the Quebec government, the Parti Quebecois and the City of Montreal lawyers are all now corrupted, bad but why did he leave out his fellow police offciers who had let the corruption go on the last 50 years at least

A report by French-language Radio-Canada said provincial police cancelled a surveillance operation , the report cited anonymous sources suggesting police get cold feet when an operation gets too close to the government. Read more: http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/charest-considers-suing-over-corruption-allegation-

.

so this is why corruption in Quebec continued for such a long time? and is this so now in other provinces as well?

.

According to PQ MNA Bernard Drainville, a questionable real estate deal  involving a piece of land on the south shore could link the Liberals with the  controversial Catania Construction company. He claims that at least $40,000 in political contributions from Catania was  rewarded with the $600,000 sale of land by the Riverside School Board to the  company. According to Drainville, the deal was approved without public tender by then  Education Minister Michelle Courchesne. At the time of the announcement, the Liberals also pledged $3.8 million in  public funds to support the project. The community centre was never built.  Instead, the company re-sold the land, to a condo developer for about $1.5  million. The PQ alleged that Catania made $1 million in profit. “It is not normal again that the Liberal interest is more important than the  public interest. It is not normal that Catania is making $1 million in less than  a year, while our school boards are crying for money and the south shore  community is asking for a new community centre,” said PQ MNA Bernard  Drainville.“Why is it yet again that the friends of the Liberal Party are cashing in on  public money while all these public needs that need to be fulfilled.”

.

What this not the first time Jean Charest’s government was accused of favoritism?  Similar allegations were made in a damning report by Jacques Duchesneau, the  former head of anti-corruption squad. All of those allegations are before a public inquiry being led by Justice  France Charbonneau. The findings from that commission will be released about two  weeks after Quebecers vote-in a new government. The Liberal timing of  of the election took this into account?

Quebec’s realy dumb Premier Jean Charest badly joked about the student protesters outside

 

The striking college and university students who are learning to disrespect more and more a Quebec Liberal government and a Premier who does not care to support them now the students will next upon graduation will not hesitate to leave the province and go elsewhere.. sad but true. Ironic that many Ontario university, college students are now also threatening to strike against the Liberal Ontario government next as well.. Liberals do not make great Dads it seems..

 

.

Quebec Premier Charest’s true Achilles heel: the Quebec Civil service, construction corruptions- ethics scandals,  for he Jean Charest is   cracking down on Quebec students, acting tough with the weak, defenseless Quebec’s youth while he neglected, avoided dealing with the municipal, party kickbacks, bribes, the Mafia, the real big crooks.. Our premier also   has been much to soft on these municipal crimes even for years too.. and too soft on bad cops, bad doctors and nurses..

The Quebec PM Jean Charest should have firstly noted the first rule of government was, is that student must go back to school at all costs, especially if Quebecers want to get ahead of the rest of the world now too.

The PM of Quebec keeps on missing this reality. The  dumb premier has clearly put dumb, useless  people into his cabinet.Quebec PM Jean Charest and his lack of understanding, compassion, and his poor advisors are already costing presently even literally millions of dollars to the Quebec taxpayer, all for an education tax hike in fees which now hardly compares to the wasted overtime dollars that our futile police is also costing us.

Yet, he the PM continues to try to salvage his lost leadership when next the majority clearly will not elect such a poor Liberal manager and strategist. The PM he is losing ground more and more managerial creditability each day and the reality it seems now still too is this costly leftist- rightist struggle will continue, to cause him to lose support of others, with the striking students still being hurt more and more in the process..

Rule number two is that the unemployed students do not and will not pay taxes and will rather go on social aid.. all due to the poorly smarting move by a Conservative oriented Quebec premier which will rather end up costing us more and more money wasted now as a result too.. 

 .

“A responsible father doesn’t call the police when he has to settle a family matter with his children. A good father talks to his kids,”  “A negotiated deal is better than an imposed deal. A special law would have a negative impact on the social climate right now in Quebec. It would create more violence, more tensions, and everyone wants to avoid this.” President of the Quebec federation of college students, Léo Bureau-Blouin.  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/quebec-college-students-may-seek-separate-deal-with-government/article2434732/

.

MONTREAL — The student movement to abolish university tuition fees and overhaul the administration of post-secondary institutions in Quebec shows no signs of abating. The Concordia Student Union has voted in a meeting Tuesday night to reject the tentative deal reached between student groups and the government over the weekend. Tue May. 08 2012  http://montreal.ctv.ca/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20120508/mtl_protest_120508/20120508/ The big significance of this is this is an english speaking university rather…

.

Students at UQAM   voted against the tentative agreement to end the deadlock with the government over university tuition fees.  So far, the deal has been largely rejected by student associations across the province. To date, only students at CEGEP de Gaspe have found it acceptable, with other CEGEP and university departments rejecting the deal en masse

NOW HOW COULD A QUEBEC PREMIER BE SO STUPID TO MISREAD THE QUEBEC STUDENTS ATTITUDES TOWARDS UNIVERSITY EDUCATIONAL COSTS? WHAT HE DID NOT CARE TO ABOUT THEM ALL THESE YEARS TOO?  OUT OF TOUCH WITH QUEBECERS ON SO MANY OTHERS ISSUES NOW AS WELL?

Quebec Premier Jean Charest   badly  joked about the student protesters outside  rightfuly protesting the major provincial  hike in Educational costs the next few years as he gave a speech about his legacy project, Plan Nord, a proposal to spend billions developing northern Quebec.

“Maybe those knocking on the door this morning, we can offer them jobs,” he said, to laughter. “In the north, if possible.”

A realy dumb Liberal Premier is unwisely now making a great mistake  in making thousands of  the students his enemies..

Amnesty International, Canadian branch of the human-rights organization has asked the QUEBEC government to call for a toning down of police measures that, it said, are unduly aggressive and might potentially smother students’ right to free expression. In a news release the group also urged the province to find a peaceful solution to the 11 weeks of sometimes rowdy demonstrations. “Amnesty reaffirms its concern regarding the tuition increases, which would undermine the progression to access to university for all,” 

 MEANWHILE ANOTHER REALY DUMB AND STUPID LIBERAL CLEARLY SEEKING REVENGE FOR HIS PAST POLITICAL FIASCOS Michael Ignatieff warns that Quebec separation likely‎  BUT NEXT THE Former Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff backpedalled  from THE VERY controversial  comments he made during an interview with the BBC that Quebec will “eventually”  become an independent country IS RATHER SAYING NOW  “Since I passionately want Quebec to remain part of the Canadian fabric, and  since these friends have defended this idea with courage and pride, it causes me  pain to think that anything I said could be used against a cause – the national  unity of my country – that they and I hold dear,” HIS SEPERATION VIEWS WERE CONTRADICTED BY poll on Quebecers’ attitudes,   in  the Montreal La Presse newspaper.It pegs support for independence at 36 per cent — well below the historic  highs of the early 1990s and even lower than the level in the first sovereignty  referendum, more than three decades ago. Dumb and Stupid Liberal again. No wonder they are on the way out.

MONTREAL – A hospital emergency room might not be the best place for the sick  and elderly. The risk of acute infection – mostly respiratory and gastrointestinal viruses – following a trip to the emergency room is three times higher among the  elderly, according to a study published Monday in the Canadian Medical  Association Journal. Long-term care patients who spent a few hours in an emergency facility were  more likely to get sick in two to seven days after returning to their nursing  homes.

Curing cancer: a reality check Not likley soon..

.
Anyone who is a adult should know easily by now that the world has much too many crooks, and that even a university degrees does not turn all of the persons into honest persons.. some of them are still crooks. Any doubts? just think when was the last time you heard the last time about an honest lawyer?  I personaly had met some bad university medical doctors, Researchers who boasted they were good at getting research grants, but they admitted they also were abusing them.. crooks like to boast too.
.
One of the pet peeves I have is how many people unwisely give their money to bad churches, bad organizations, the bad Salvation Army and even to bad, wasted medical research..
.
Helping to find a cure for cancer or hearth attacks is still too often wasteful,  just more money abuse when the major reasons for the related  deaths is caused by one’s personal lifestyle, even their eating habits. and not aging even. so what does research do to help in this are.. not much good still.
.
Cancer became the top killer of Canadians in 2011.. Curing cancer often leads the most hoped-for list when you ask people what medical breakthroughs they would like to see. But trying to answer the question of whether the war on cancer is being won means stepping into a contradictory tangle of statistics, anecdotes, hopes and fears.  There has been remarkable progress against some childhood cancers but very little change in mortality rates for some other forms…”there will not be one cancer magic bullet.”That’s partly because there are 200 or more forms of cancer. “We shouldn’t neglect the fact that cancer is a very complicated and complex disease,” said Dr. Ben Neel, director of the Ontario Cancer Institute at Toronto’s Princess Margaret Hospital. “Even lung cancer is probably 10 different types of molecular disease.”    The biological basis of cancer also makes a single silver bullet less likely to work… to win the war against cancer, it needs to be fought on all fronts, including prevention… cancer incidence rates could be cut in half through these preventive steps: Quitting smoking: 25 per cent to 30 per cent of cancers are caused by smoking, but a quarter of the population still smokes.  Avoiding drinking alcohol in excess. Increasing physical activity.  “I think everybody’s scared to use this cure word,”  “There are patients living six, seven years still disease-free that should not have lived for six years. I would be tempted to call that a cure. We’ll see.”  “Unfortunately, our success in reducing the mortality from cancer over the past 60 years has been very, very modest,” . “So I don’t think, as I say, that it’s realistic or even necessary to talk about curing cancer in order to make a big impact.” He sees some downside in promoting unrealistic hope from a cure or positive prognosis for some patients with terminal cancer. Patients may request more aggressive therapies that may not actually be helping them, “We have seen over the past decade that more and more patients with cancer are dying in the ICU than dying while receiving chemotherapy, going to the emergency room and spending hours and hours on a stretcher in the final month in their life.” an estimated 177,800 new cases of cancer expected to be diagnosed annually. http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/story/2011/12/30/cancer-chasing-cures.html

MONTREAL — The pink ribbon has long been synonymous with the fight against breast cancer.

McGILL UNIVERSITY EVEN HELSP TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE NOW GETTING CANCER.
“McGill under fire for corporate-funded asbestos research  A letter signed by 76 international health experts and academics makes two requests of three senior members of McGill’s Board of Governors (BoG): that they cease inviting Roshi Chadh…a – who is involved in exporting asbestos from Canada – to sit on the BoG, and to cease using and promoting the use of asbestos. The letter states that McGill “has a long history of serving the interests of the Quebec asbestos industry,” including an “alliance” between the Quebec Asbestos Mining Association (QAMA) and former McGill professor John Corbett Macdonald in 1966. According to a recent episode of CBC’s The National, QAMA provided Macdonald at least $1 million between 1966 and 1972 for research into the health effects of chrysotile asbestos. The letter states that Macdonald “had significant influence around the world in putting forward information…that was favourable to the industry’s interests.” “http://www.mcgilldaily.com/2012/02/mcgill-under-fire-for-corporate-funded-asbestos-research/

 Proper medical care and not pretentious Medicare is still our Canadian right. And anyone who denies it needs to be incarcerated! Doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, Premiers, Ministers included. We pay a significant part of the Doctors, Nurse education, development , Training  and then they falsely try to abuse it to us by their deliberate poor performances.  If you are a medical professional, a medical administrator, or a health minister and you had now failed to prevent the death of one persons even, or had specialty failed to properly treat their medical condition then that certainly is a prosecutable criminal offence and for certainty you need to be incarcerated for your coldness,, indifference towards others now too .http://thenonconformer.blogspot.com/2010/02/mcgill-medical-doctors-in-montreal.html

Quebec’s asbestos industry draws new salvos from politicians, academics…. MONTREAL — Quebec’s asbestos industry is coming under increasing fire, with  two recent, damning documentaries airing on CBC and Radio-Canada, renewed calls  from politicians in Quebec City and Ottawa to outlaw the cancer-causing mineral,  and a review launched into some industry-funded research at McGill this  week.

On Friday, the opposition Quebec Solidaire called on the provincial and  federal governments to stop financing the asbestos industry and to ban export of  the mineral.

Parti Quebecois mining critic Martine Ouellette told the media she wants a  parliamentary commission to look at the issue.

The calls are partly in response to a documentary aired on Radio-Canada  Thursday evening “that reveals the true face of a lobby that in the past has had  no scruples at all about manipulating the facts to the detriment of human health  to defend its financial interests,” according to the Quebec Solidaire  statement.

McGill University in Montreal announced Thursday it has launched a  preliminary review into the work of professor emeritus John Corbett McDonald,  after the university received a letter last week signed by dozens of academics,  physicians and researchers accusing some McGill researchers of being controlled  by the asbestos industry.

The RCMP punishement was absurd again

.

RCMP officer docked pay after assault on prisoners

National Post  OTTAWA – A Mountie whose blog was shut down by the national police force earlier this year for calling aspiring models “second-class, working whores” and “skanks” has been docked 10 days pay after admitting to assaulting two inmates in a cell block. It’s not the first time Kropielniski lost his cool on an accused in the cellblock.

The punishement was absurd.. he should be fired from his job as well as all of his poor superiors.. a repeat offender

OTTAWA—The RCMP has about 30,000 employees, AND  the problems are related to leadership. The RCMP says it has received more than 1,000 harassment complaints across the force in the past six years and, as of late November, 65 of those complaints remained “under review.”The RCMP is now scrambling to pull together relevant numbers for an independent review that the federal Conservatives requested be led by the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP. http://www.thestar.com/news/article/1107631

RCMP management and officers do continue to stink bad

A former RCMP officer who claims to have faced racism and bullying in the police force says she was not the only aboriginal Mountie to have experienced discrimination.Marge Hudson, who was Manitoba’s first female aboriginal RCMP officer when she joined the force in 1979, says she quit in 2009 as a result of years of harassment, bullying and racism in the workplace.But Hudson says she was not alone, as almost every aboriginal RCMP officer she knows has experienced some kind of racial discrimination and harassment on the job. Some of them turned to her for help, she added.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/aboriginal-rcmp-officers-face-racism-says-ex-mountie-112640906.html

C. difficile- the shit disease

AT LEAST 25 PERCENT OF THE NURSES, NURSES ASSISTANTS, ORDERLIES

RUN AWAY FROM DOING THEIR PATIENT’S WORK

Contracting the superbug C. difficile in the hospital increases a patient’s stay by an average of six days, putting serious financial strain on Canada’s health-care system, a new study shows.

.( Never mind the fact it kills a lot of people)

C. difficile is a bacteria found in feces that causes severe diarrhea. It’s extremely common in hospitals because people usually contract it after taking antibiotics, which can kill good bowel bacteria and allow C. difficile to grow. What’s more, the bacteria can spread through surfaces like toilets, handles and bedpans, and hospital staff can spread it by not wearing gloves or washing their hands. It’s the most common cause of infectious diarrhea in hospitals, and one in 10 patients who get it will die, regardless of how sick they were beforehand. And according to the study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, it’s filling up already-crowded hospitals and draining the health-care system. U.K. doctors David Enoch and Sani Aliyu say the rate of infection can be cut by making sure heath-care workers practise good hygiene and don’t overprescribe antibiotics.http://www.torontosun.com/2011/12/06/c-difficile-lengthens-hospital-stay-study

.
It is a major problem that Kills thousands of Canadians every year, amongst other factors such as hospital errors, and our health ministers don’t seem to care…nor the Police that people are getting killed in Hospitals..
.
by the way there seems an unpopular cure that few want to use..

Another female RCMP officer is accusing the force of harassment

.

BC Mountie files lawsuit, says she worked in atmosphere of “fear and control” Winnipeg Free Press -VANCOUVER – Another female RCMP officer is accusing the force of harassment, saying she was subjected to an “atmosphere of fear and control” while working with a drugs and organized crime unit in British Columbia.

.

THE RCMP HAS A HISTORY OF BEING DIRTY COPS.. NONE OF THIS IS ACCEPTABLE..

Many bad North American professionals tend to behave unprofessional, abuse their clients, citizens cause
1: They personally do not have enough love for others
2; The love of money motivates them, the love of which is the root of all evil
3: they tend to reflect societies poor moral values
4: they all do need to be still continually supervised in reality
