Now what about all the other provinces and territories in Canada

Canada’s British Columbia’s new agency the Independent Investigations  for investigating incidents of death and serious harm involving police is now up and running. Under an agreement with B.C. police services, including the RCMP, the IIO will be called when incidents occur and will dispatch investigators to the scene. The investigators are a mix of former police officers from Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton and London, U.K., among other locations. Only officers who have not policed in B.C. for at least five years were considered. Four front-line investigators are formerly from the B.C. Coroner’s Service.  Richard Rosenthal, the chief civilian director for the office who comes to the post from police oversight positions in Portland and Denver, has  said his team is about 50-50 split between former police officers and investigators with civilian experience. Mr. Rosenthal will be in charge of reviewing case files assembled by his officers to recommend to crown whether officers should be charged. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/british-columbia/agency-tasked-with-probing-police-related-deaths-opens-doors/article4533552/

as usual you can count on the RCMP to do a realy bad job still..

Multiple RCMP errors let Pickton keep killing, inquiry told BCLocalNews – RCMP officers made critical errors in their investigation of serial killer Robert Pickton that likely delayed his arrest until 2002 and let him continue murdering sex trade workers, the Missing Women Inquiry heard Wednesday. Vancouver Police Department Deputy Chief Doug LePard, testifying last week on the findings of his review of the Pickton case for the VPD, said Mounties wanted to interview Pickton in the fall of 1999 about the vanishing women but inexplicably agreed to delay the interrogation when the pig farmer’s brother Dave urged police to wait “until the rainy season.”

RCMP chose not to correct record on taser death, inquiry told Globe and Mail – VANCOUVER — Within days of Robert Dziekanski’s death at Vancouver International Airport, the RCMP knew that key information it had released was wrong, but decided it would not correct the record, one of the Mounties’ media officers testified yesterday.

 

Dziekanski inquiry: RCMP spokesman simply repeated what he was  Canada.com –  By Suzanne Fournier, The ProvinceApril 21, 2009   RCMP Sgt. Pierre Lemaitre stands in the lobby of the Braidwood Inquiry into the Tasering of Robert Dziekanski who died at the hands of police after arriving at Vancouver Airport from Poland.

 

Misinformation about Tasering purposely not corrected: Mountie. Canada.com –  By Suzanne Fournier, Canwest News ServiceApril 22, 2009 VANCOUVER – An RCMPspokesman said Wednesday that top police brass made a deliberate decision not to correct misinformation the Mounties had told the media about Robert Dziekanski’s death,

 

Heads must roll for this deceit The Province – After the Tasering and subsequent death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski, Cpl. Dale Carr of the RCMP talked to investigators, watched the Paul Pritchard video of the incident, then told Sgt. Pierre Lemaitre what to tell the media.  After the Tasering and subsequent death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski, Cpl. Dale Carr of the RCMP talked to investigators, watched the Paul Pritchard video of the incident, then told Sgt. Pierre Lemaitre what to tell the media. At that point, Sgt. Lemaitre proceeded to, either knowingly or unknowingly, tell the media (and, by extension, all Canadians) a bunch of crap. Speaking on behalf of the Mounties, Lemaitre alleged Dziekanski became violent after police arrived, that he threw chairs and a computer, that he didn’t hit the floor with the first Taser blast and that he continued to be violent and combative after he hit the ground. Not true, not true, not true and not true Or, more to the point: lie, lie, lie, lie. Speaking at the Braidwood Inquiry Wednesday, Carr testified that he was told by his boss, Supt. Wayne Rideout, that the misinformation given out to reporters about the fatal Taser incident would not be corrected publicly until the file was closed. In other words, perpetuate these lies until . . . That’s the question, isn’t it? Until the public forgets about poor Mr. Dziekanski? Until anyone who might be remotely interested in the truth has moved on to something else? Until the truth can be quietly filed away as an addendum item to yet another Taser-related fatality? Day after day, what the Braidwood Inquiry reveals about our national police force is both sad and terrifying. Where exactly do the Mounties go from here? Is regaining the public trust even possible at this point? Should every allegation of dishonest RCMP testimony be re-examined and placed under the scrutiny of its own inquiry? One thing is certain at this point: heads must roll, both of those responsible for the tragedy of Mr. Dziekanski’s death and of those who attempted to manipulate the truth of what happened.  http://www.theprovince.com/News/Heads+must+roll+this+deceit/1524800/story.html

  This not something new that I have said, rather it is old, decades old.. all now proven now by details of the murder of a polish immigrant in the Vancouver airport.. that the RCMP is pretentious, incompetent, costly, self serving, just like the justice, security ministers now too, for the RCMP does not  care about the good welfare of the Citizens as well.. they the RCMP are over paid for what they do for they generally  can’t catch the real criminals, so  they harass the ordinary citizen with quota oriented traffic tickets instead.. they have to use PR, a public relationship department approach to sell the RCMP output, because it otherwise is not  all visible at all. Did I mention also that this mainly white force is likely racist oriented as well? Cutting their budget, firing now all of their managers, sergeants is the prerequisite or totally disbanding them.  

Mounties back off taser tale Toronto Star    After months of stonewalling and sticking to a now-discredited version of events surrounding the role of its officers in the death of Robert Dziekanski, RCMP Commissioner William Elliott is signalling a change from the national police force.  Chief makes it clear RCMP will stop blaming Polish victim.  Asked if part of the problem for the RCMP has been its refusal to admit any mistakes were made, Elliott said: “Well, maybe it is.”

  
RCMP ‘sorry’ for inaccurate remarks on Dziekanski incident Globe and Mail  VANCOUVER — The RCMP has admitted that it provided wrong information to the public about the taser incident involving Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski in the first days after his death at Vancouver International Airport. But the police force has denied that it lied or deliberately suppressed information about the disturbing circumstances of Mr. Dziekanski’s death. ( RCMP is still lying..) No sooner was the apology uttered than the Mounties’ media spokesman was besieged with questions demanding why the erroneous information was ever put out in the first place.  The RCMP has faced criticism for its handling of Mr. Dziekanski’s death, which occurred after he was stunned by a police taser near the international arrivals lounge at the Vancouver Airport.  For example, in one CTV interview shown to the inquiry, Sgt. Lemaitre is shown telling interviewers that Mr. Dziekanski did not respond to the first police taser, and that he struggled and fought, even while on the ground.  However, the bystander’s videotape, which was later made public, shows that Mr. Dziekanski screamed and fell to the ground after the first taser. Sgt. Lemaitre also told reporters in October 2007 that police tasered Mr. Dziekasnki twice, when in fact four electronic shocks were delivered. And in another news briefing that October, Sgt. Lemaitre was asked point blank by a reporter if there was video of the taser struggle. Sgt. Lemaitre told the reporter there was no video, even though he himself had already viewed it. But reporters Tuesday questioned the RCMP line that Sgt. Lemaitre was simply a messenger who was handed the wrong facts. If Sgt. Lemaitre watched the amateur video, he would have seen Mr. Dziekanski drop to the ground after the first taser hit.
     

Dziekanski inquiry: RCMP spokesman simply repeated what told to say Canada.com  

  The RCMP have been heavily criticized for public statements about the Tasering and restraint of Dziekanski, for saying that three rather than four members were involved, that Dziekanski continued to be “violent” after police arrived, and that police attempted to calm him before Tasering and had to Taser him twice because he fought back.  None of those “facts” is true, as shown by the bystander Pritchard video that is shown repeatedly at the inquiry.

 Robert Dziekanski before his Taser  death0dead

RCMP apologize for giving public inaccurate account of Dziekanski death Tue Apr 21, 9:11 PM  VANCOUVER, B.C. – The RCMP apologized Tuesday for what it says was inaccurate information that misled the public about the circumstances of Robert Dziekanski’s death.
 
 
The RCMP FALSELY now had  fed us crap, had covered up for their own inadequcies ,
 
mic-key1
 
and NEXT ANY OF their apolgy is not accepted, they ALL DO need to be fired, prosecuted as well.
 
DISBAND ASAP THE RCMP AND GET A REAL PROFESSIONAL POLICE FORCE NOW   

Despite evidence the RCMP used excessive force, resulting in the man’s death, the officer who analysed their actions told an inquiry Thursday the force used was reasonable. That officer is wrong.

   
Canadians know this by now, having watched a bystander video of the RCMP’s encounter with Mr. Dziekanski Oct. 14, 2007. Some of those four officers have conceded at the inquiry that their accounts, recorded in notes, of Mr. Dziekanski’s actions at the airport were wrong. That did not dissuade Sgt. Brad Fawcett of the Vancouver Police Department from sticking to his report’s conclusions, rationalizing the use of force at the inquiry into Mr. Dziekanski’s death. Sgt. Fawcett said the RCMP perceived they were under threat, that Mr. Dziekanski was combative and, under those conditions, acted reasonably when they discharged a Taser five times.

The traveller, who was lost in the airport for 10 hours, was agitated and threw furniture, but when the RCMP arrived, Mr. Dziekanski was not combative. In fact, he turned away from them, picked up a stapler and then faced them again. The officers said he raised the stapler and moved toward them combatively, but the video showed otherwise. They said, fearing for their safety, they had to wrestle him to the ground after he was Tasered once — in fact, he flailed for a few seconds and then collapsed on the ground. The officers jumped on him, as he was still screaming, and tried to cuff him, at which point Mr. Dziekanski was Tasered again repeatedly.

Canadians have been shocked that a non-combative man with a harmless office tool was levelled by such force, with little effort made by police to understand the circumstances. Sgt. Fawcett himself said he would have reacted differently. But, he said, those officers reacted according to their perceptions of what was unfolding in front of them.

Sgt. Fawcett’s report showed that he had to ignore the evidence to rationalize the inaccurate versions of events told by the RCMP — saying the video supported their stories, when it didn’t and then discounting as “minor in nature” the contradiction between the officers’ account that Mr. Dziekanski had to be wrestled to the ground and the video that showed he collapsed.

Sgt. Fawcett ignored the obvious need for officers to explain their actions, and their perceptions, in the context of the facts of an event, of the circumstances in front of them, to justify their use of force. In the absence of that, reasonable becomes arbitrary and any use of force can be justified. That is not the kind of authority any officer should have.

Sgt. Fawcett’s conclusions are insupportable and his weak attempts to paint the RCMP officers’ actions as reasonable do them a disservice.

 The  RCMP is a farce…

In busy Toronto, police say  Drunk driving and careless turning are the main culprits for serious accidents in intersections and red light cameras are not used because of the fear of public backlash..  So why are Calgary drivers such chronic lead-foots? or is the question why is it the Calgary city fathers are so money hungry? The  police services are  implementing the   speed cameras as a way of adding to their coffers.. ‘Speed on green’ cameras linked to rear-end crashes.  Arizona cities, one of the first cities to bring in such technology says the cameras decrease speeding and dangerous collisions, but can increase the number of rear-end crashes. But of course the money hungry police of Calgary had denied this. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/06/25/we-need-more-red-light-cameras-elsewhere-too/
 
ANOTHER CASH GRAB.. The Calgary Parking Authority is expanding its hold on the inner city by starting to charge for parking on more than 20 blocks of the Beltline.
 
CALGARY AND EDMONTON POLICE ISSUE MORE TRAFFIC TICKETS OVER ANY OTHER CITIES  IN CANADA AND  FOR DECADES NOW TOO!
 
Anyone who thinks the cops here are being honest, serving the public is a fool..
  
  No  matter how that dirty RCMP weasel spins the facts, tries to weasel out of the truth, the RCMP was clearly wrong on many counts in the Taser death of a polish immigrant at the Vancouver airport.. they were uncompassionate, inconsiderate, used more restraining force than was necessary, and they next also clearly lied to cover-up their own immoral acts, and many times as well, They slander a good man in the process as well.. and so none of this was, is acceptable or forgivable.. none  of it.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/04/21/the-mickey-mouse-rcmp-in-canada
  
Now the RCMP is so ready to monitor others it firstly cannot monitor itself.. how absurd and hypocritical still too
 
Most reasonable and reasoning people have seen the folly of speed cameras for decades now too.    
 
Here is what I found amazing and worth while examining now  in much more detail.. insurance companies in Canada do not mind gouging Canadian consumers in their greed to make more profits..  and we all know that accumulating speeding , traffic infractions, will cause your car insurance costs to go up significantly…   and yet here is what I find surprising, neither the insurance companies, the provincial government, nor the federal government, the police have real, valid detailed statistics on the causes of traffic accidents: such as how many were caused my alcoholic drivers, how many were caused by speeding, how many were caused by poor road conditions, lousy snow clearing as well, etc not even in Ontario, Alberta, Quebec, BC as well.. …. so what do the insurance companies do with all the extra money they collect, certainly they of all persons should have firstly the best statistics on traffic accidents now in the first place, or how do they determine their rates??? Even Canada’s police chiefs have to rely on accident statistics from other countries, such as Australia, Great Britain, the US..
      
The RCMP made a mistake by waiting 14 months before correcting misinformation about a fatal incident involving four Mounties at Vancouver’s airport, a media relations officer said Wednesday at the Braidwood inquiry.  Cpl. Dale Carr told the inquiry, which is probing the death of Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver International Airport after he was Tasered five times at about 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 14, 2007.   that the misinformation initially put out by the RCMP could have compromised the investigation http://www.vancouversun.com/News/Mountie+admits+RCMP+conveyed+misinformation/1525511/story.html
 
This was no mistake, this was an unacceptable blatant lie  where real, serious punishment should be applied to all the RCMP personnel  involved.

The inquiry heard last month that in the first two days after Dziekanski died on Oct. 14, 2007, the RCMP’s public statements on the incident contained false information about how many officers were involved, how many times Dziekanski was stunned and what state Dziekanski was in when approached by officers.

Inquiry commissioner Thomas Braidwood ruled that Supt. Wayne Rideout could only address his decisions about what RCMP media spokespeople had told the public following Dziekanski’s death — despite a request by the lawyer for the Polish government to expand the scope of questions Rideout can be asked when he returns. Don Rosenbloom wanted to question Rideout about why the RCMP fought to withhold amateur video of the Taser incident, and why investigators failed to question the four Mounties who were deployed to handle Dziekanski when discrepancies were discovered in their statements. May 2009

 

PS: For  all these people who are talking about as to who would now make a good needed replacement for the Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper.. no one.. we have seen how bad the CANADIAN Conservatives now are REALLY LIKE, ALL OF THEM.. so WHO NEEDS ANY OF THEM..

RCMP likely needs to be totally disbanded

 

0liars-rcmp1

  If what we have been told about the fatal shooting of a Vancouver man by a female police officer is true, it appears front-line cops have learned little from the Robert Dziekanski incident at Vancouver International Airport in 2007. It is ironic this happened just days before the Braidwood inquiry resumed with testimony from the RCMP officer in charge the night Dziekanski died. There are striking similarities to both incidents.   In both cases, we have a witness who disputes the official police version of what happened. And in both cases, a witness apparently caught the incident on camera. Adam Smolcic claims police seized the cellphone he used to record the fatal shooting. He also alleges that police deleted the video capture. In the Dziekanski incident, Paul Pritchard also had his video camera seized by police, and only got it back after he threatened a lawsuit. (Police say they needed to hang onto it until all other evidence they were looking for was in their possession.) Smolcic is making some pretty serious allegations: that police shot and killed someone who could have been subdued with pepper spray or a baton, and that police then tried to cover their backsides by tampering with evidence. Abbotsford Police have now been tasked with investigating the shooting. That investigation should also delve into Smolcic’s allegations. Smolcic is reported to be a marijuana activist. In the past, the word of a pot advocate wouldn’t have counted for much when weighed against the word of a police officer. Sadly, it may be easier for the public to believe Smolcic than the police. That’s how badly the Dziekanski incident has shaken the public’s trust in the police. http://www2.canada.com/surreynow/news/viewpoint/story.html?id=64e57161-c603-4208-b83e-b712c4ac1558
 
  
DIRTY RCMP AND their  lawyers still misrepresenting Tasered Dziekanski ..
  
“VANCOUVER — A neighbour of the Polish immigrant who was Tasered at the Vancouver International Airport accused lawyers at the inquiry investigating his death of trying to “make a bad person out of him.”Iwona Kosowska, who lived in the same apartment building as Robert Dziekanski before he left for Canada in October 2007, clashed numerous times with lawyers representing the RCMP officers involved in his Tasering when they suggested Dziekanski was an alcoholic or prone to violence. “You’re trying to make a bad person out of him which means you can kill a bad person because he was not good,” Kosowska said via video link from Poland. “You guys made a mistake and now you’re trying to turn everything around.” Kosowska said her neighbour was terrified of flying and didn’t sleep for 48 hours before flying to Canada to see his mother who lives in Kamloops. B.C. The inquiry, headed by retired judge Thomas Braidwood, previously heard that Dziekanski became agitated after spending more than 24 hours travelling and 10 hours stranded at the airport when he and his mother failed to meet up. He died after being hit five times with a Taser by one of the four RCMP officers called to the scene, while a bystander filmed the encounter with his cellphone.  Through an interpreter, Kosowska accused the lawyers of trying to attack Dziekanski’s character, describing him as a friendly neighbour who was interested in geography — “his great passion” — and was looking forward to starting a new life in Canada with his mother. Kosowska, who lives in the southern Polish city of Gliwice, had known Dziekanski for more than 20 years. She threatened to stop answering questions if they continued to portray him as a violent alcoholic. Kosowska defended her friend after watching the video of his death, saying that he was only “asking for help.” “I’m trying to tell you . . . he is from a foreign country without any knowledge of the language, without having a cigarette on him, without having water to drink and nobody paid any attention to him, they didn’t help him. So what kind of reaction are you expecting?” she asked. Due to a growing gap between the RCMP version of events and video evidence, the Polish-Canadian community is demanding that a “special independent prosecutor” be appointed to investigate Dziekanski’s death. The inquiry heard last week that the lead Mountie, Cpl. Benjamin (Monty) Robinson, admitted he asked to “change” his evidence after viewing the bystander’s video of the death. In his initial report, Robinson claimed 12 times that the Polish immigrant swung a stapler at the officers, the inquiry heard. This report, along with those of his fellow officers, was proved wrong by the video of Dziekanski’s death. “I was mistaken but I was telling the truth. I sort of blended the whole interaction with him,” Robinson told the inquiry last week. None of the four Mounties involved in Dziekanski’s death have been charged. Robinson also told the inquiry that the Polish immigrant “didn’t give us the opportunity” to warn him before he was Tasered, as per RCMP policy. “It wasn’t tactically possible,” Robinson said last week. Robinson said that Dziekanski grabbed a stapler and threatened the officers. When the man took a step toward police, Robinson told his colleague to fire a Taser. “I thought he was going to hit me with the stapler,” Robinson said. When asked why he told another officer to deploy his Taser less than 30 seconds after the officers arrived at the scene, Robinson again cited time constraints. ” http://www.montrealgazette.com/Health/Dziekanski+sleep+deprived+terrified+before+Tasering+Neighbour/1445354/story.html

When William Elliott was appointed RCMP commissioner in 2007, the challenges ahead were monumental.   It fell to Elliott, a career civil servant, to rebuild the tattered remains of our once-proud national police force, and restore public trust in an institution that had badly fallen into disrepute. The 24,000-member force was “horribly broken,” according to an independent review at the time. Less than two years later, the force is even worse off, and Elliott has failed to deliver. He needs to step aside –or be fired–so someone more effective and trustworthy can again try to restore accountability, transparency and integrity to our damaged Mounties. Elliott has proven he’s as much out of touch as was his predecessor, Giuliano Zaccardelli. Canadians are rightly outraged by the persistent culture of arrogance, overzealous policing and coverups that have for too long been the norm.

-An independent body of civilians is needed to investigate homicides involving police. It’s obvious that police investigating themselves isn’t working. There have been too many coverups, and the public has lost trust.

-A new commissioner is needed. Elliott has to go. He has lost credibility and can no longer lead this troubled organization back to health.

The iconic tradition of Canada’s Mounties dates back to May 23, 1873. The red serge of their uniforms has come to represent honour, order and a proud past. But red is also the colour of shame. Without drastic change, that will be the sad legacy of this once meaningful organization.

http://www.calgaryherald.com/Broken+RCMP+needs+overhaul/1439030/story.html
 
I agree, but I think it more likely needs to be totally disbanded, for  it is broken beyond repair.

In busy Toronto, police say  Drunk driving and careless turning are the main culprits for serious accidents in intersections and red light cameras are not used because of the fear of public backlash..  So why are Calgary drivers such chronic lead-foots? or is the question why is it the Calgary city fathers are so money hungry? The  police services are  implementing the   speed cameras as a way of adding to their coffers.. ‘Speed on green’ cameras linked to rear-end crashes.  Arizona cities, one of the first cities to bring in such technology says the cameras decrease speeding and dangerous collisions, but can increase the number of rear-end crashes. But of course the money hungry police of Calgary had denied this.
 
ANOTHER CASH GRAB.. The Calgary Parking Authority is expanding its hold on the inner city by starting to charge for parking on more than 20 blocks of the Beltline.
 
CALGARY AND EDMONTON POLICE ISSUE MORE TRAFFIC TICKETS OVER ANY OTHER CITIES  IN CANADA AND  FOR DECADES NOW TOO!
 
Anyone who thinks the cops here are being honest, serving the public is a fool..
 
  No  matter how that dirty RCMP weasel spins the facts, tries to weasel out of the truth, the RCMP was clearly wrong on many counts in the Taser death of a polish immigrant at the Vancouver airport.. they were uncompassionate, inconsiderate, used more restraining force than was necessary, and they next also clearly lied to cover-up their own immoral acts, and many times as well, They slander a good man in the process as well.. and so none of this was, is acceptable or forgivable.. none  of it.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/04/21/the-mickey-mouse-rcmp-in-canada
 
Now the RCMP is so ready to monitor others it firstly cannot monitor itself.. how absurd and hypocritical still too
 

Most reasonable and reasoning people have seen the folly of speed cameras for decades now too.    
 
Here is what I found amazing and worth while examining now  in much more detail.. insurance companies in Canada do not mind gouging Canadian consumers in their greed to make more profits..  and we all know that accumulating speeding , traffic infractions, will cause your car insurance costs to go up significantly…   and yet here is what I find surprising, neither the insurance companies, the provincial government, nor the federal government, the police have real, valid detailed statistics on the causes of traffic accidents: such as how many were caused my alcoholic drivers, how many were caused by speeding, how many were caused by poor road conditions, lousy snow clearing as well, etc not even in Ontario, Alberta, Quebec, BC as well.. …. so what do the insurance companies do with all the extra money they collect, certainly they of all persons should have firstly the best statistics on traffic accidents now in the first place, or how do they determine their rates??? Even Canada’s police chiefs have to rely on accident statistics from other countries, such as Australia, Great Britain, the US..

Canadian Women’s rights

 
 
see also  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/11/16/men-and-women-are-equal-in-the-law/
 
Men and women are equal before the law. Women have the right to be paid the same as men when they do work of equal value. And when they aren’t paid the same, women have the right to use the courts to get pay equity.   Harper says the present system of using the courts for pay equity is “long and costly” and is based on “complaints” and “confrontation” and he wants to “modernize” it by wiping out the right of women to use the courts to get pay equity.   If Harper gets his way, pay equity will be settled at the bargaining table, not in the courts.  But what about women who don’t have a union?  Too bad! That happens to be a majority of the 41% of Canadian women who work outside the home. http://www.cornwallseawaynews.com/article-298389-Harpers-war-on-women.html
 
and here is what also really grabs me too..
 
Now I know already that many evangelicals have a perverted view of the Bible’s women’s rights but I would expected better form from the so called liberals in this matter at least, but it seems that for political expediency the Liberals falsely will let Stephen Harper and the Conservatives  get away with it here too, the pathetic, sad Liberals they will let it wrongfully all happen still too now, as they all even have with so many other bad things now too, such as shortcomings in the health care system,  inadequate consumer protection included, police inadequacies, etc… and the cost of living for a woman is the same as for a man in reality too…
 
OTTAWA – Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff says equal pay for work of equal value is a basic human right that should never be put up for grabs at the collective bargaining table.  To that end, he has introduced a private member’s bill aimed at reversing a controversial measure in the 2009 federal budget.  The budget essentially reclassified pay equity as a labour issue to be negotiated in collective agreements, stripping the Canadian Human Rights Commission of its authority to adjudicate pay equity complaints.  Ignatieff’s proposal – his first private member’s bill since becoming an MP in 2006 – would return pay equity to the human rights realm.  It would also create a federal pay-equity commission charged with implementing an equal-pay regime in the federal public service, federally regulated companies and Crown corporations by 2012.  Ignatieff acknowledges his bill would result in some additional, unspecified costs for the government but he thinks the principle is “definitely worth it.”  Ignatieff says pay equity is really about gender equality, noting that women, on average, still earn only 72 cents for every dollar earned by men for the same work.  He says he chose the issue for his first bill because it’s emblematic of the Liberal party’s core belief in equal opportunity for all. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/091209/national/ignatieff_pay_equity

Too typical RCMP – NOVA.SCOTIA (CBC) – The lawyer for a Nova Scotia native band says a Halifax Regional Police investigation into the shooting death of a Cape Breton fisherman missed key evidence in the case. Gary Richard, the lawyer for the Wagmatcook First Nation, gave transcripts of interviews to the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP, and said they provide key information about the fatal police shooting of John Simon. “The investigation that led to critical decisions on whether charges would be laid, or disciplinary action taken, was incomplete and even in some respects indifferent,” The band has been calling for a public inquiry into the 2008 death of Simon. RCMP Const. Jeremy Frenette was called to Simon’s house on Dec. 2, 2008. He climbed through a window to deal with an allegedly drunk, suicidal and armed Simon and ended up shooting him dead. Halifax Regional Police, who were called in to investigate, determined that Frenette ignored a supervisor’s directive to stay put, but said the officer didn’t break any laws and acted in self-defence. The report concluded that Simon had threatened Frenette with a rifle. The report quoted Frenette as saying, “I felt he was gonna shoot me.” On Thursday, Richard said that a medical first responder from the reserve was among the first on the scene after Simon was shot, and she told band investigators that she didn’t see a rifle anywhere near Simon as he lay bleeding on the floor. “Again, this is immediately after the shooting,” Richard said. “There was no evidence of a firearm, even though she looked very carefully for her own safety. “It’s a shocking omission from the report.” That first responder, Elizabeth Googoo, confirmed in a telephone interview with CBC News that she did not see a rifle at the scene. Googoo said during the police investigation, she felt pressured by the officers to say she saw a gun in the room. “To me it seemed like they wanted me to say that the gun was somewhere but I didn’t see it,” she said. “It’s like they wanted me to say that the gun was in the room but like I said, I swear I even told them, ‘I swear I didn’t see the gun.'” Kevin Brosseau, director of operations for the CPC, said he would consider the evidence brought forward by the band. “We’ll want to get a look at all information that’s relevant to this incident. Background could be relevant, it could be helpful. I’ll have to look at their submissions,” he said. “I’ve just been handed a number of documents. I’ve yet to look at them. I’ll consider them and I’ll be able to report on that later on.” The band claims the investigation that cleared Frenette of any wrongdoing was deeply flawed. The CPC will look into how the RCMP handled the incident. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100610/canada/canada_novascotia_ns_wagmatcook_rcmp_commission

Me I ask rightfully STILL EVEN for  the RCMP to catch and convict  the murderous Taser persons at the Vancouver Airport. by even an alcoholic RCMP it seems https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/11/11/no-rcmp-alcoholics-it-seems/

Not that child porn would be unique in this regard: police regularly overstate the value of drugs and cigarettes they seize.

While most of the Police according to some persons  are supposedly upstanding members willing to respect Canada’s constitutional history, some are clearly not, in fact they are in reality too often racists, cause they are admittedly mostly white persons still too,   and in the end one rotten apple will spoil the rest anyway.   And most police work in is necessarily done in secret and with no full oversight thus with the rise of para-militarism in Canadian police forces and the rapidly growing false police disdain of any civilian oversight I also do rightfully think it is dangerous to simply to leave the police alone or even to  take what the police say at face value –I would severely discipline any police  subordinate who broke the rules of engagements, rules of fairness, respect, decency,  and  we all should even seek discipline against any  superior who did so too. Why would we allow any police member to get away with now still too?

The RCMP is supposedly now aggressively tackling organized crime in B.C too.  According to the RCMP Public relationship propaganda department too,  because if they the RCMP now did not write a report about it,  it all now still would not be obvious to most people who wonder what the cops are even doing now most of the time, besides giving out money generating traffic traffic tickets,  the report does not  indicate the number of  bad people actually successfully prosecuted each year for the millions of dollars already spend on the related police man-hours now too? nor  does the same RCMP report indicate the cost of the useless police enforcement per year in comparison now to the actual successful prosecutions?   The police Canada wide now also would like you to believe that less people are getting caught for drunk driving now as well,  even though the number of people getting drunk, becoming impaired is increasing each year too, but the accuracy of the police report now itself depends on whether the police do even bother to try to catch  the drunk drivers  or where they still  they are too busy writing the traffic tickets for speeding. even though speeding still is not a major cause of car accidents to start of with too.

Friday, 22 August 2008   The Criminal Intelligence Service Canada (CISC) released the 2008 report on organized crime today in Montreal. Sgt. Tim Shields of the RCMP in B.C. made the following comments regarding organized crime in this province: “In British Columbia, the illicit marihuana industry alone is estimated at $6 billion per year. This figure does not include revenue from the sale of crystal meth, cocaine and heroin, and from identity theft, credit card fraud, prostitution, gun smuggling, human trafficking, and money laundering — all of which are traditional activities for organized crime groups. But even more alarming is the violent crime associated to organized crime such as shootings in public places, kidnappings and the murders of innocent people. “Members of organized crime groups are not law abiding citizens — they don’t play by the rules our communities live by. Their greed supersedes all the laws and values that we as a society embrace. Normal law-abiding citizens consider the impact of their behaviors and actions; these people don’t. They think nothing of selling drugs to our children, taking advantage of our elderly or opening fire in our neighbourhoods.  “What are police doing about it? In B.C. – a great deal. Today there are more than 17 police units and government agecies actively working together to combat organized crime.  If you are aware of organized crime activities, call your local police,  call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.  Calling the police can too often be a waste of time cause they the police too often still are even falsely selective as to the type of work next that they are willing to undertake    and they might  next ask you to freely   help to  do their own paid Jobs, and yes  the same that they are being paid for !

RCMP.OUTING
 
 

The Braidwood Inquiry into the Taser-related death of Robert Dziekanski has been blown up and left in ruins by the revelation a key RCMP e-mail was withheld from the commission. After months of outrage about the conduct of the four Mounties who responded to Vancouver Airport Oct. 14, 2007, who can believe that at the last minute, a federal lawyer would produce what many would consider a smoking gun — an e-mail saying the officers decided to use the Taser before confronting the Polish immigrant? If true, the Nov. 5, 2007, e-mail titled “Media strategy — release of the YVR video,” from RCMP Chief Supt. Dick Bent to assistant commissioner Al McIntyre, establishes the four have been lying through their teeth. This critical document suggests the four officers committed perjury and that senior officers sat silent while they did so. Worse, it seems there are many other documents that have not been turned over that may be relevant. This e-mail was one of 260 documents on a CD sent by the RCMP to the justice department last April, yet the federal lawyers didn’t open the CD until last week.. Commissioner William Elliott’s carefully parsed press release was equally unbelievable: “This was simply an oversight. Unfortunately in an exercise of this magnitude, such an oversight can occur.” Bollocks. No one but a moron overlooks the import of an e-mail like this. The officers deny the explosive content is true and Roberts says Bent was wrong in what he said. But their protestations ring hollow after almost 18 months of bluster and denial. So does Elliott’s threadbare these-things-happen excuse. The situation is as bad as the most virulent critics of the Mounties feared. This is no longer about four officers who made mistakes in judgment: It’s about an organization that thinks it is above the law.  .It is time to thank commissioner Braidwood for his excellent work in bringing these unsettling facts to light and it’s time to appoint a special prosecutor.  The B.C. Law Society should also begin an investigation into the conduct of Roberts and any other federal lawyer involved in this staggering lack of disclosure. That was not an “oversight.” It was professional incompetence or a cover-up. http://www.vancouversun.com/Mounties+Tasering+should+face+prosecution/1716660/story.html

 

 

Don’t cut education. Don’t cut social services. Don’t cut public safety. Don’t  And whatever you do, cut government workers, aides, politicians out of town travel, related expenses, alcoholic entertainments too

 
NOW WE FIND OUT THAT THE RCMP management clearly lied, also to blame.. Mounties read through 1,000 internal e-mails preparing for inquiry  AND HID SOME FROM THE INQUIRY AS WELL..
 
“RCMP’s communication strategy ultimately failed. The force did not publicly correct inaccuracies or defend its role in the case, fearing that information might alter witnesses’ recollection of events. Police also believed, the report said, that public opinion would switch to supporting the RCMP after all the facts were known. We found neither argument valid,” the report said. “For deeply rooted systemic reasons and long-held views regarding the importance of due process, the RCMP’s management of issues and communications were lacking and caused many of the problems the organization was trying to avoid.”We therefore recommend that clear, precise guidelines about what can be released, and at what point in the investigation, be developed, and that these guidelines be based on a liberal view of releasing information.” http://www.canada.com/News/Mounties+read+through+internal+mails+preparing+inquiry/1714755/story.html
 
“The “Wayne” to whom Chief Supt. Bent presumably is referring in the e-mail is Supt. Wayne Rideout, the head of the integrated homicide investigation team into Mr. Dziekanski’s death who admitted under oath at the commission that he had lied to public as to the circumstances of the incident. Supt. Rideout publicly claimed that Mr. Dzienkanski had been Tasered twice, when in fact the man had been hit with the stun gun at least five times. He also claimed the officers had to wrestle the man to the ground because the first shot had no discernible effect, when in fact video evidence is clear that the distraught would-be immigrant from Poland fell quickly after he was first zapped.  The absolutely sickening thing about this entire episode is that were it not for a bystander with a camera phone who had the presence of mind to videotape the conduct of the four officers, their lies, evasions and concocted story might have worked to let Mr. Dziekanski’s death be explained away.  Commission counsel Art Vertlieb is absolutely justified when he observed Friday that this delayed disclosure raises questions about whether the RCMP has actually shared everything in its files that Mr. Braidwood needs to do the job.”  http://www.thestarphoenix.com/Dziekanski+probe+turns+into+fiasco+RCMP+bungles/1716292/story.html

 

Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. had just returned from a trip overseas and, upon arriving at the property with a driver, found his front door jammed and had to force it open. By the time police arrived at the house, he and the driver had managed to get inside the property. According to police, Prof Gates shouted at the officer and accused him of racial bias. Police Officers were called to Prof Gates’s house after a woman reported seeing two black males – the professor and his driver – trying to force entry.  Prof Gates was still falsely arrested outside his home after providing the officer with identification.  The US president has said police acted “stupidly”,” the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home”, the police should never have arrested him. He added that African-Americans and Hispanics in the United States have long been familiar with racial profiling by law enforcement.. “And even when there are honest misunderstandings, the fact that blacks and Hispanics are picked up more frequently, and often time for no cause, casts suspicion, even when there is good cause.” US President Obama  Prof Gates has said he was “outraged” by the arrest and called the officer, Sgt James Crowley, a “rogue policeman”. Sgt Crowley has refused to apologize.  During the confrontation between the two men, the 58-year-old professor reportedly said: “This is what happens to black men in America.”  The police department did not respond to requests for comment

Subject: Quebec’s police-shooting policy biased: ombudsman
 
MONTREAL — Ontario’s ombudsman said he has zero confidence in the Surete du Quebec’s ability to impartially investigate the fatal shooting by Montreal police of a young Latino man last week. Quebec’s practice of having one police force investigate another is outdated and should be replaced by an independent civilian body that would oversee incidents in which a member of the public is seriously injured or killed by an officer, he said. Andre Marin said it is outrageous that the SQ, the provincial police force, waited almost a week before talking to the two Montreal police officers involved in the shooting. “When police investigate police … there is favouritism in the investigation,” Mr. Marin told The Montreal Gazette’s editorial board on Monday. “It was seen right away in this case when they failed to interview the witness officer immediately.” Mr. Marin said investigating police often use the trauma “card” and say they are giving the officer time to compose him or herself. “It is completely bogus,” he said of that practice, adding that it gives the officers time to consult union lawyers. In Ontario, a police witness would have been required to give a statement to the province’s civilian Special Investigations Unit within 24 hours of a police shooting. Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit was established in 1990 after a rash of police shootings of young black men in Toronto in the late 1980s, Mr. Marin was director of Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit between 1996 and 1998. http://www.nationalpost.com/news/story.html?id=732206

Every day police officers leave their homes and families and put their lives on the line for a salary, cause this is what they are being paid for, hired for and this does not mean that they are now even free of any negative criticism while they are doing their paid  duties, especially when there are so many outstanding questions regarding their    inappropriate use of authority, force by too many police officers,  plus the unacceptable false  cover ups of their wrong doings and their unacceptable lying now  too.  Plus basically  nothing has even changed in the Vancouver airport customs area since the RCMP’s death of the police immigrant Dziekanski. And there are still concerns about Liberal candidate Kash Heed and his former role as West Vancouver police chief and his unexpected retirement from the force less than two years into his contract, “There’s still a lot of anger about a $40,000 severance payout even though he voluntarily quit in February, leaving many unanswered questions about his status on the force,”  to supposedly avoid legal prosecution too. “The cops have a responsibility to follow moral leadership and let me tell you, the cops do not have that here [in Abbotsford] “NDP candidate for Abbotsford South, Bonnie Rai. These are all valid issues, concerns too.

Clearly the Canadian CRTC is in someone’s back pocket

 

The Bell company has also adopted rebranded its Bell ExpressVu, Sympatico and residential service in favour of Bell TV, Bell Internet and Bell Home Phone.”It’s all to convince to convey that Bell is and has gotten better,” Bell Mobility president Wade Oosterman said in an interview.But telecom analyst Carmi Levy of AR Communications said the changes will have little impact unless they are accompanied by a dramatic improvement to customer service.”You can change your logo and you can change the name of your offering until the cows come home but if you don’t change the fundamental way that you operate, then the rebranding effort will be for not,” the Toronto-based analyst said in an interview.He said Bell needs to be less adversarial and aggressive with customers and more responsive to their needs.“This needs to be just the first salvo in an ongoing effort to become a softer friendlier company to deal with.”New Bell chief executive George Cope has promised to improve customer service as it completely overhauls the vast business. The Montreal-based company recently announced plans to shed 15 per cent of management and sell non-core assets.

CRTC Internet Traffic Ruling Throttled ‘Til October

Complaints over the throttling of Internet traffic – in apparent violation of industry regulations if not ‘Net neutrality aspirations – are themselves being slowed.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission has delayed its ruling on a dispute involving Bell Canada and third party Internet Service Providers over Internet data rates and throughput.

The CRTC now says it will rule on the fight between Bell and the Canadian Association of Internet Providers (CAIP) by Oct. 31. ”

Clearly the CRTC is in someone’s back pocket  for the CRTC is not speedily working on behalf of the many complaining  Canadian citizens

Believe it or not, face it or not Bad and abusive  Corporations,   churches,   pastors,   cops, in fact all bad persons are often the number one concerns of many people, on the net too, many citizens,  in every province, Canada wide too,  and yet this is an area where the too often pretentious government, poor ministers, that have wrongfully also  hired too often their pretentious friends into key  and secondary jobs now too, are clearly wrongfully not doing enough now here  too… but they still steal, take a big   salary, with perks, expenses accounts  wrongfully for it too..   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/06/03/corupted/

Some persons still do argue that when you agree to the contract with a carrier for  that new phone even for free or at a discounted rate, or an ISP, Iphone services   it was understood what you were doing entering into a legally bind contract so do explain to me what the point of a contract is… when you can just get out of it at any time with no deterrent? or Bell itself often as is it often the case now too does not keep their promised contractual commitments, and secondly their CONTRACT CLAUSES, agreements, clauses are so one sided, unfair the the  COURTS TEND  NOT SUPPORT THEM NOW AS WELL.
 
“A California Supreme Court judge has ruled that early-termination fees on cell phone contracts are illegal. This is HUGE. Contracts and early-termination fees basically define the cell phone industry in the United States. Could we be headed for a major change if this decision holds? By locking consumers into 1 to 2-year contracts with an early-termination fee tacked on, carriers are able to guarantee a certain amount of revenue from their subscribers. By doing this, they are able to offer subsidies on the actual hardware. This is why the iPhone 3G is only $199, but requires a 2-year contract. This is completely different from Europe and other markets where consumers pay full price for their hardware, but are not forced to sign any contracts. There will be appeals by the cell carriers, but if this holds, what could happen? Early termination fees put the power in the hands of the carrier. How many times have you heard a friend say they would love to get a new phone or switch carriers only to shoot down their idea because they are under contract for another year? In some cases, it could even be cheaper to pay for two contracts instead of paying the early termination fee on one. So, let’s assume this decision holds, and carriers aren’t legally allowed to charge these fees, we’ll probably either see the carriers attempt to work around the legal problems through a loophole or the abolition of cell phone contracts. Hooray! Except, cheap handsets are the first thing to follow contracts out the door. Most people don’t realize that cell phones are actually fairly expensive pieces of hardware after years and years of discounted, subsidized prices. In the end, it’s hard to say if the consumer will save money out of contract, but with a full-priced device. It’ll depend on the plans, which could increase in price in response. So if we might not actually save any money, what will be gained by this decision? Freedom. Some cell phone carriers are notorious for poor customer service because they probably don’t feel like going out of their way to help their customers when they have them locked into a contract. Without contracts, a greater responsibility to appease and provide for the customer falls on the carriers. Suddenly, threats to cancel service and move to a competitor could have meaning. Carriers would have to fight to keep you as a customer. Pair this up with the trend of moving toward open networks that must accept any device and you’ve got the making of a European style cell phone market. That is, of course, if the carriers don’t just find a loophole. You can be sure their best lawyers are on the case. On the hardware side, most phones would end up being sold unlocked. We wouldn’t be surprised if the retail market for devices moves online or into big box retailers, while the service is sold by carriers. Sure, they’d sell phones too, but suddenly a whole new market complete with competition could open for unlocked handsets. If you were suddenly able to break your contract without consequence, would you switch carriers? Are you patiently waiting for your contract to end so you can get a new phone or upgrade?    http://www.g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/post/687741/No_Early_Termination_Fees_Will_The_Cell_Market_Completely_Change.html

I have a  engineering degree, Concordia University , Montreal 1 , and I had worked as a ReMax Realtor in Calgary too but in my decades of real life experiences in Canada the existing laws, regulating societies, governments clearly did not stop many Realtors,  lawyers or even now Bell Sympatico from telling lies to the customers, others.  http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/07/13/misapplications-of-the-laws-in-canada/
 
Imagine that Bell has been in Business for many years and is still guilty now clearly of misleading advertisements, fraudulent and unacceptable business practices, not living up to their contractual obligations, as I now have PERSONALLY WITNESSED, EXPERIENCED  and undeniably detailed to even Bell and many others many times too now . I Paid for a high speed unlimited download service but that is not what I got next.

Does the RCMP monitor download logs?

00

 In Canada the RCMP certainly admits to monitoring the net.. MICROSOFT HAS HELPED THEM IN THIS MATTER TOO.   THEY DO ALSO NOTE WHAT YOU WRITE ABOUT THE RCMP FIRSTLY??? BUT THEY HAVE A HARD TIME CATCH THE BAD RCMP OFFICERS FIRSTLY STILL AND WHY IS THAT?..  yes  the RCMP who is so ready to monitor others cannot monitor itself properly..

 In my view they the RCMP are still the  bad apple, a very  poor watchdog, and clearly discriminatory, racists LIKELY  too, mostly white AND  English speaking BAD COPS,  and  the bad RCMP, SEEM even too often guilty of privacy invasion now too itself,  for they tends to monitor, to investigate anyone in Canada too, me too,  at their political master’s requests, and along with the local major police services, post office now too, has hundreds of thousands of files on even the innocent citizens in Canada..   

Allowing the police who falsely too generally are still accountable to no one  to conduct internet surveillance without oversight is the beginning of a police state controlled by the party in power and we should have none of it. What we firstly do  need to set up an independent citizen based police review boards to handle all of the police complaints, honestly and fairly Canada wide now too. The Police are far from being angels as we all can know, the RCMP included. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/10/25/canadas-bad-police-officers/
 
Imagine this the new email programs inluding windows live and google mail  are now all designed to keep all youir emails on an exterior server for 30 days so the cops can read and access them at any time. The cops reading your email and seeing what you do on the net next as well.. a clear police state.
https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/10/04/allowing-the-cops-to-use-the-internet-to-spy-on-anyone-makes-an-unacceptable-police-state/

Here in Canada I had attended some political meetings   at the request of a neighbor  of mine, a lawyer,  who worked for city hall, shortly after that the same neighbor had told me that the local police had next complied a report on me at the request of the mayor, for apparently it was common practice for the mayor to use the police services to evaluate all of his possible political opponents. No wonder the main jail was across from the mayor’s office too. Next the same lawyer told me that the provincial government also had a RCMP report on me as well done by police..  and apparently I was classified as a religious terrorist because I also do talk about Jesus.  .. there really is no no such thing as privacy in Canada.. I understand that the Post office office has a database on the citizens of Canada in PEI as well.

Coming back to the bad RCMP now 

No  matter how that dirty RCMP weasel spins the facts, tries to weasel out of the truth, the RCMP was clearly wrong on many counts in the Taser death of a polish immigrant at the Vancouver airport.. they were uncompassionate, inconsiderate, used more restraining force than was necessary, and they next also clearly lied to cover-up their own immoral acts, and many times as well, They slander a good man in the process as well.. and so none of this was, is acceptable or forgivable.. none  of it.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/04/21/the-mickey-mouse-rcmp-in-canada

WANT TO SAVE SOME TAXPAYER’S MONEY? TAKE A LOOK AT THE RCMP.  REALLY HOW MUCH SKILL, EDUCATION DOES AN RCMP OFFICER NOW HAVE WHO GIVES OUT PARKING TICKETS AT THE VANCOUVER OR THE OTHER AIRPORTS? IT CLEARLY SEEMS GIVING OUT PARKING TICKETS IS AN EXPENSIVE, WASTEFUL  USE OF THE RCMP FIRSTLY NOW TOO… IT SHOULD BE CLEAR TO ANY OF YOU THAT THE RCMP ARE COSTLY, INEFFECTIVE, TROUBLESOME, MISMANAGED AND OVER PAID, FALSELY EVEN WANTING MORE AND MORE MONEY.. 

AND it seems they are not effective in catching the real crimimmials, and they are a really costly, EXPENSIVE bunch of guys now too, WHO OFTEN DO HAVE USE THE NEWS MEDIA, PUBLIC  RELATIONSHIP TO TRY TO SELL THEIR SUPPOSED RESULTS TO US ALL BECAUSE IT IS NOT CLEARLY OBVIOUS TO US ALL OTHERWISE..

Police 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 realted all to speeding.. not in reality to drunk driver, bad drivers, road rage, poor roads, bad snow cleaing..

THE ALBERTA CANMORE RCMP  JUSTIFIES COLLECTING SUPPOSEDLY MILLIONS of  DOLLARS in MONEY ON SPEEDING TICKETS  IN BANFF TO SAVE THE LIFE OF A FEW DEERS TOO IT SEEMS. What about the drunk drivers, cops included firstly? 

“Every year, drunk driving leaves a terrible trail of death, injury, heartbreak and destruction. In terms of the deaths and serious injuries resulting in hospitalization, drunk driving is clearly the crime which causes the most significant loss to the country.”Supreme Court of Canada Justice Peter Cory, 1995

In reality the too often self serving, money hungry, promotional and empire oriented police, and their superiors, bad justice ministers, bad politicians  really do not care about the citizens good welfare but only their own

http://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/07/16/a-blatant-tax-on-the-motorist-speed-cameras/ 

Most reasonable and reasoning people have seen the folly of speed cameras for decades now too.    
 

They the RCMP seem to be afraid of the real bad guys to go after them and it appears that the the RCMP that is so busy trying to catch the innocent citizen that it has NO  MONEY,  time or competency to catch the BIG major criminals, the major drug pushers, the major hackers, major counterfeiters, murderers, rapists, bank robbers, commercial crimminals too,  or even allof the drunk drivers,  and so a special police force now had to be made in Alberta  to go even after the drunk drivers, meanwhile the bad RCMP officers like many other cops themselves likely abuse the laws too, all  undeniable as well. The pretentious, inadequate, incompetent Mickey Mouse RCMP should have been disbanded a long time ago and replaced with a decent police force as I have often rightfully requested this now too.

PLEASE DON’T GET ME WRONG, THE RCMP  HAVE NOT EARNED MY RESPECT, AND THEY NOW DO NOT GET IT AUTOMATICALLY ,  FOR  EVERY TIME I CALLED THEM TO BE OF SERVICE THEY DID NOTHING GOOD FOR ME THE LAST FEW DECADES TOO. THEY LIED , MISSPELLED MY NAME TOO. They had even threatened to shut me up for good if I myself  did not shut up in Canmore, Alberta now too.

I REALLY DO HAVE NO USE FOR THEM.  ALL THEY SEEM TO BE GOOD FOR IS GIVING OUT REVENUE GENERATING VEHICULAR TRAFFIC TICKETS or killing a person  with a Taser? http://inkslwc.wordpress.com/2007/11/17/royal-canadian-mounted-police-taser-man-in-vancouver-resulting-in-his-death/

Did any RCMP officer yet get arrested for that in Vancouver to date? Me too I couldn’t stop shaking my head as I read the latest in Canadian cops and their use of tasers. So not only are we the country that tasers non-English speaking tourists to death in airports, apparently we also taser 17 year old boys to death, and use repetitive taser shots to subdue an 82 year old man who is in hospital.. we pay big money and what we do hire mickey mouse cops who too often are incompetent, pretentious, no good.. abusive too?

 Useless Royal Canadian Mounted Police another big expensive Joke.. clearly mismanaged often too..

CP VANCOUVER – While RCMP brass and its media relations division scrambled to keep from being “crucified” over Taser use and the death of a man at Vancouver’s airport, they also had to deal with an increasing barrage of complaints accusing officers of being everything from clowns to killers.  Email documents, released to The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act, showed great concern from Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day’s office down to the RCMP’s British Columbia media relations office over the public’s perception about the death of Robert Dziekanski.  “I am going to get some advice, but I think I might wade in here to set some of the record straight with the media,” RCMP Chief Supt. Dale McGowan wrote in an email to the Cmdr. Peter German.  “We are being crucified on why the Taser usage and our members’ actions at the preliminary stages.”  German later replied that he had “just watched the Taser video on BBC TV in Australia!”  Weeks before, RCMP media spokesman Sgt. Pierre Lemaitre wrote to management that Cpl. Dale Carr – the media spokesman for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team – had concluded there was a possibility of an “international incident” because of Dziekanski’s death.  In one email days after the death, Day’s office issues an “urgent” request to RCMP to see the latest media lines Mounties have sent out on the Taser incident.  Lemaitre outlined suggestions for what the RCMP should tell the media, including that the death was being reviewed on several levels and that the investigation was continuing.  On October 14, 2007 Dziekanski spent hours in the international arrivals area at the Vancouver airport before he was confronted by four RMCP officers.  A bystander’s video of the confrontation shows the officers attempting a brief conversation with the confused and sweating Polish man before Dziekanski was jolted twice with a Taser.  He died minutes after the officers pinned him to the ground.  Sgt. Tim Shields – who has just taken over the communications section at E Division in Vancouver – said in an interview last week that the entire issue has hurt the Mounties’ public image.  “Yes, of course it has,” he said.  “And we hope that when more of the facts are made public … it will present a clearer picture of truly what happened.”  The eyewitness video was seized by officers at the scene for evidence, and the owner later threatened legal action to get it back, saying he wanted to release what he recorded to the media.  In the hours after the death, Lemaitre told the media that officers at the scene attempted to calm the man, but they felt threatened.  When the eyewitness video was finally released, it showed police using the Taser less than half-a-minute after first confronting the man.  After the tape was aired around the world, the RCMP were inundated with angry emails.  “Sgt. Pierre Lemaitre should be fired for purposely misrepresenting the facts and suppressing the video on a false premise,” wrote one person who’s name was removed from the documents.  “It appears you have been caught in an outright lie,” wrote another, whose name was also stripped from the email. The email had a subject line reading “state-sanctioned murder.”  Lemaitre told one correspondent he had to work with the information that he was given by the investigation team, and he suggested that if he had it to do over again, he would have said nothing.  “In the world of communications, police have often been criticized for not giving details and/or information regarding an incident resulting in allegations that we are hiding something,” Lemaitre wrote.  He told the complainant several investigations will reveal why officers did what they did.  “As for myself, as a spokesperson, in the future, I will consider saying that we have no comment, there’s an ongoing investigation, and weather the storm of media criticism that we are not forthcoming.”  Despite Lemaitre’s comment, Shields said police haven’t changed the way they deal with the media.  “We have to ensure that we have an open relationship with the media because we rely on the media to get the message out to the public,” he said.  Another member of the public wrote asking police “So how are you going to lie your way out of this one?” and made reference to the Mahar Arar where RCMP handed over inaccurate information about the Canadian man to U.S. authorities.  “You clowns are nothing but a sad, expensive joke,” the writer ended.  Later correspondence grew increasing hostile and is riddled with foul language. Some are even threatening.  “When will charges of manslaughter be brought against the officers?” asks a member of the public.  “Seeing as there will be no proper action taken against the criminals, I should hope a similar fate befalls their families.”  Carr and Lemaitre responded to several of the writers.  It is vitriol Shields said he’s never seen before from the public.  “After the millions of good things that we have done, it was very disheartening to see that level of backlash and anger from the public.”  Not all the emails were negative.  Chris Newel of the Clearwater RCMP wrote to Lemaitre suggesting police put out a news release indicating how many times a Taser was used successfully.  “I see on the news eight people have died in five years – that’s about 1.5 a year. How many would have died if we didn’t have the Taser?” Newel wondered.  “Of those eight, how many had pre-existing conditions that likely contributed, if not were the cause, of death?”  “Thanks for that,” Lemaitre replied.  “Stand by for the autopsy results! We might be in for a surprise, like Tasers didn’t kill this guy, pre-existing medical conditions and or drugs in the system, wait and see.”  No drugs or alcohol were found in Dziekanski’s body, but the cause of death still hasn’t been released.  A briefing document written in November 2007 for RCMP Commissioner William Elliott said it was the B.C.’s Coroner’s Office that left police in an embarrassing position after RCMP refused to release the bystander’s video before it was used at the coroner’s inquest.  Elliott said the coroner, “in an unprecedented action and in contradiction to his request of the prior week,” sent a letter to the Integrated Homicide Investigative Team saying the coroner’s office instead had no problem with the videotape being released.  “This left no legal basis for the videotape to be held,” Elliott wrote.  The reverberations from Dziekanski’s death and the release of the videotape are still being felt, with most of the investigations ongoing, including a public inquiry which will begin hearing witnesses testify in October about the night Dziekanski died.  The B.C. Crown is looking at a police report into whether charges should be laid against the officers involved.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/080817/national/airport_taser_rcmp

Replace the useless RCMP and the useless Security Minister too..  No  matter how that dirty RCMP weasel spins the facts, tries to weasel out of the truth, the RCMP was clearly wrong on many counts in the Taser death of a polish immigrant at the Vancouver airport.. they were uncompassionate, inconsiderate, used more restraining force than was necessary, and they next also clearly lied to cover-up their own immoral acts, and many times as well, They slander a good man in the process as well.. and so none of this was, is acceptable or forgivable.. none  of it.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/04/21/the-mickey-mouse-rcmp-in-canada

  The Green Party of British Columbia said Tuesday the RCMP is not accountable to the public and promised to replace the force in B.C. if the party wins the May 12 election.AND IT REALLY BUGS ME THAT ME POSTING MESSAGES ABOUT POLITICIANS SINS OR THOSE OF COPS GET THE MOST FALSE PROTESTS..  

 
Walter Kosteckyj, the lawyer for Dziekanski’s mother, said the officers’ inaccuracies beg for a second look – and that second look shouldn’t be in the hands of the RCMP themselves. “Whenever there is a police incident, it’s high time we had completely independent oversight. We cannot have police investigating themselves,” Kosteckyj said outside the inquiry. The inquiry is also scheduled to hear from two RCMP spokesmen this week – Sgt. Pierre Lemaitre and Cpl. Dale Carr – who handled the storm of media coverage immediately after Dziekanski’s death. Parts of the RCMP’s initial accounts were called into question when the eye-witness video was made public more than a month later. For example, Lemaitre repeatedly insisted the officers tried to calm Dziekanski down, but the tape shows the man was stunned within seconds of the four Mounties arriving. The sergeant also said the Taser’s internal computer recorded just two jolts – even though the weapon was used five times. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090414/national/taser_inquiry 
   

4 RCMP OFFICERS  TELL THE SAME LIES AND WE ARE TOLD TO BELIEVE THEY ALL MADE THE SAME MISTAKES.. DREAM ON… THESE SUPPOSED  MISTAKES , LIES, WERE ALL CLEARLY MADE TO COVER UP FOR  THE VISIBLY BAD  RCMP OFFICERS

 “The deaths of Ian Bush and Robert Dziekanski are examples of recent failures to provide helpful enforcement services to the people of B.C.,” Green party Leader Jane Sterk said in a news release.

Bush, 22, died in police custody in July 2005 from a gunshot wound to the head after a fight with an officer.

The mill worker was arrested after being found with an open beer outside a hockey game in Houston, B.C.

Dziekanski, 40, died after being hit five times with a Taser by an RCMP officer at the Vancouver International Airport in October 2007.

The details of the Polish immigrant’s death, which was captured on camera by a bystander, are currently being investigated by an inquiry.

“The Green party would end the RCMP E Division contract and replace the RCMP with a new B.C. police service. The B.C. police service would no longer make use of Taser electric weapons, and would be subject to civilian oversight under the auspices of an independent provincial police commissioner,” she added.  

Police ordered to write more tickets  Tue, Nov 22, 05 at 12:08 PM. How stupid can they get.. first look at the police budget.. Do you want to save money? Do lay off 30 percent of the cops.. and save 60 million dollars per year.. if the cops are here just to collect speeding tickets and not to catch the real bad guys than merely do get rid of them.. speeding is not the main factor in accidents firstly.. but impaired, drunk drivers, road rage are.. next lay off all those people at city hall who are used to the “unacceptable culture of corruption and entitlement”. cut in half their expense accounts, and cut off all of the out of town trips too http://www.canada.com/calgary/calgaryherald/news/story.html?id=0d58b5a1-2d80-42c7-b5a1-9efdd4e077e2 
  
 Sterk also said the BC provincial government should cancel plans for a new RCMP headquarters. 
  
 
THE COPS, THE RCMP CAN’T CATCH THE BAD GUYS CAUSE THEY ARE TOO BUSY GETTING REVENUE GENERATING TRAFFIC TICKETS FROM THE CITIZENS STILL? 
  
REGINA – RCMP launched a criminal investigation. Thursday involving the recent Saskatchewan NDP leadership campaign. Insp. Stewart Kingdon wouldn’t say exactly what the Mounties are investigating or provide further details. NDP CEO Deb McDonald said the Mounties requested 1,102 membership forms that were submitted in April by an overzealous volunteer from the Dwain Lingenfelter campaign that were later cancelled by the party. “We immediately said we would absolutely co-operate in any way that we can,” McDonald said. “On Monday we turned over the memberships and today they informed me that they are starting a criminal investigation.” Lingenfelter won the party leadership on Saturday, capturing 55 per cent of the votes cast, compared to 45 per cent of the votes garnered by Saskatoon doctor Ryan Meili.  Former leader Lorne Calvert and Lingenfelter were not available for comment. There are allegations that some of the memberships, which cost a total of just under $10,000, may have been forged.  McDonald said they have asked the RCMP to investigate in a timely manner and called on Saskatchewan voters to wait for the results before drawing any conclusions. “A criminal investigation doesn’t necessarily mean that there will end up being any charges at all,” she said.  Last month a report commissioned by the NDP into the scandal said the unidentified volunteer with Lingenfelter’s campaign team acted alone when he filled out membership forms and signed them for people without their knowledge. “The Lingenfelter campaign did not authorize, direct or condone this activity,” said lawyer Robert Hale, who was asked by the party to look into the kerfuffle. Hale recommended the party establish tougher rules to prevent a similar occurrence. The situation came to light at the end of April when concerns were raised about the validity of memberships sold on two reserves in the Meadow Lake area. Most of the $10 memberships were paid for by Lingenfelter’s campaign. That’s allowed under party rules and has been done when people can’t afford the cost.  But the report says the volunteer used a list of names of band members to fill out the forms. The volunteer didn’t actually talk to people to get their consent to join the NDP.  Lingenfelter’s campaign team submitted the forms to the party in April, but they were rejected later that month when NDP provincial office staff noticed that the signatures on the membership applications appeared to be very similar.  At the time Lingenfelter brushed aside suggestions that there was an attempt to deceive anyone. The party said it considered the matter closed and saw no need to turn the findings over to authorities.

>>….. Well recently in Manitoba the NDP scam was finally revealed but RCMP refuse to do anything, Nova Scotia same thing, at least in Sask the RCMP are doing something which is almost shocking. When a politician admits to any type of illegal scheme the RCMP should be in there like flies on sh@t, not whining its not their job, This is proof it is their job, but hey its Canada the public don’t seem to count for sh@t

Bad Liberals, bad Conservatives, bad NDP, Bad BQ, bad RCMP, bad anyone still do need to be prosecuted in reality.. for they basically are not good for anyone.

RCMP launched a criminal investigation and who  has  launched a criminal investigation against the bad cops, bad RCMP firstly?

There in reality is the main one important step that all consumers can take to protect themselves from any unscrupulous persons and that is enforced, exemplary public exposure and prosecution of the supposedly guilty persons by a recognized judicial public body, and so now how many such bad persons now have really been exposed, prosecuted in the last few years in reality too by all, the responsible Ministers as well? None? and why not? Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves very ones best interest… too often still missing in the civil and public services, governments, PROFESSIONAL BODIES, EVEN IN THE RCMP, police forces, churches, as well it seems too. “about the ABUSERS, bullies, thugs, proud oppressors, war mongers “ THERE IS A VERY BASIC COMMON MISCONCEPTION ON HOW TO DEAL WITH ANY PERCEIVED EVEN INJUSTICES, ABUSES, ANYWHERE, IN THE CHURCH AS WELL, BESIDES IMMEDIATELY CALLING THE LOCAL POLICE.. THE NEW TESTAMENT IS CLEAR HOW TO DEAL WITH IT.. COMMUNICATION – AND YOU DON’T FIRST POST IT ALL ON THE NET. First you merely ask the guilty, bad persons personally to repent twice, the first time without a witness, the second time with witnesses THAT you have asked them to repent.. and proof, substantiation is NOT required.. after you have done that you can next post it openly on the net, tell all the others. Next God is fully free to deal with the unrepentant guilty offenders and believe me he will.. I have now been doing for decades too.. I SIMPLY SEND AN EMAIL, I PUT IT INTO CLEARLY WRITING, SO THE GUILTY PARTY CANNOT SAY I DID NOT ASK HIM OR HER TO REPENT. WHETHER THEY ACKNOWLEDGE IT OR NOT TO GOD DOES NOT MATTER. THE POLICE, RCMP, MINISTERS, GOVERNMENT CONSULTANTS THESE DAYS, IMMIGRANT CONSULTANTS TOO IT SEEMS , SEEM TO BE ANOTHER WORD FOR ABUSERS, THIEVES, LIARS CROOKS. SO WE ALL NEED TO DEAL WITH IT MORE EFFECTIVELY NOW TOO

 
NOW of the clearly thousands of bad POLITICIANS FOR DECADES IN CANADA now how many have the RCMP successfully prosecuted, convicted.. and HOW MANY BAD COPS NOW AS WELL.. NOT EVEN A HANDFULL.. KIND OF SAYS IT ALL EH..

Subject: Speed-on-green cameras in Calgary, Edmonton today – all getting to be really ludicrous, absurd..
 
It’s all very simple: obey the laws.  You broke the law, accept the consequences, and if that hypocritical, absurd, extreme statement was the reality, the truth, everyone would next be in jail, all of the politicians, civil and public servants, cops firstly..
 
“We’re all for anything that can reduce the amount and severity of car crashes,”  and next will increase the amount of revenue to the insurance companies, after all each traffic  ticket helps to raise their insurance costs..  to make the insurance companies richer and their shareholders, but we may get a severe backlash when the citizens car  insurance rates rise dramatically next though.
 
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 .
 
The police TRAFFIC program brings in hundreds of thousands of dollars but the police, city runs the program as revenue neutral. Profits are put back into more supposedly good  traffic safety initiatives,  but mainly into the police  empire building, so it really IS NOT THE CITIZENS GOOD WELFARE THEY FIRSTLY DO ALL CARE ABOUT.
 
Now in 2008, according to police statistics, there were 3,019 injury accidents in Calgary and 38 traffic fatalities.
 
And why is it also no one will answer the question? How many people are now are actually injured due to speeding over how many persons now are injured due to drunk drivers? 15 percent are injured due to speeding? and 45 percent due to drunk drivers? so how much resources are proportional giving by the police overall  to catching drunk drivers over the car speeders? proportionally?
 
The intersection cameras are being applauded by Alberta Health Services because “there is no doubt that collisions impact our health services,” said Nancy Staniland, manager of Injury Prevention & Control Services for Alberta Health.
 
“This is not only an obvious cash grab but they are putting our safety at risk to increase their revenues. For it is a known fact that the City of Calgary had  shortened the amount of time lights stay at yellow when they brought in red light cameras. In many cases you have no choice but to floor it to beat a red light. But now your choice will be between speeding up to avoid going through a red light or getting rear ended. If you get rear ended there’s a good chance you get end up with whiplash. Really makes you wonder just how far those in power will go to rob us.”
 
“As Alberta grows, drivers are causing more problems, he said: “A lot of people are impatient, there’s road rage like never before, an increase of vehicles on our roadways, With booming populations, there’s an increase in collisions.” wow those are smart observations, such as traffic tickets are good cash cows too, 
 
and what all the people who speed are guilty of road rage? or is there a separate ticket being issued to road ragers? just as there is to drunk drivers?
 
“This is simply not acceptable. There is a direct link between speed and collisions. The faster you drive, the more likely you are to be involved in a collision and the more likely you are to get seriously hurt,” said Staff Sgt. Brett Marklund of the traffic section.

“In my perfect world, we are out of work. We’re not going to 80 or 90 injury collisions a year. We’re not investigating 30 or 40 fatalities a year, I’m not seeing thousands of (cases of) impaired driving a year. What we’re seeing is people driving safely and my guys writing zero tickets,”said Marklund.
 
A lot of our intersection crashes are related to speed. There’s in-deed a problem here at some locations, and now we can address both,” said acting Sgt. Aubrey Zalaski of Edmonton’s specialized traffic unit. The police can get promoted for getting more cash, giving out more tickets too.. self serving or really serving the public interest?
 
AND WHERE DO IN REALTY THE POLICE OFFICERS GET ALL OF THEIR  COMMON SENSE STATISTICS? SUPPORTED BY THE FIGMENTS OF ONE’S  IMAGINATION AND THE NEED TO JUSTIFY THEIR JOBS.. CAN I SEE THEIR DETAIL SUPPORT  STATISTICS, POLICE TRAFFIC TICKETS REPORTS  IN PRINT? NO? AND WHY NOT?
 
So why are Calgary drivers such chronic lead-foots? or is the question why is it the Calgary city fathers are so money hungry? The  police services are  implementing the   speed cameras as a way of adding to their coffers..
 
In busy Toronto, police say  Drunk driving and careless turning are the main culprits for serious accidents in intersections and red light cameras are not used because of the fear of public backlash..
 
‘Speed on green’ cameras linked to rear-end crashes.  Arizona cities, one of the first cities to bring in such technology says the cameras decrease speeding and dangerous collisions, but can increase the number of rear-end crashes. But of course the money hungry police of Calgary had denied this.
 
ANOTHER CASH GRAB.. The Calgary Parking Authority is expanding its hold on the inner city by starting to charge for parking on more than 20 blocks of the Beltline.
 
CALGARY AND EDMONTON POLICE ISSUE MORE TRAFFIC TICKETS OVER ANY OTHER CITIES  IN CANADA AND  FOR DECADES NOW TOO!
 
Anyone who thinks the cops here are being honest, serving the public is a fool..
 
Here is what I found amazing and worth while examining now  in much more detail.. insurance companies in Canada do not mind gouging Canadian consumers in their greed to make more profits..  and we all know that accumulating speeding , traffic infractions, will cause your car insurance costs to go up significantly…   and yet here is what I find surprising, neither the insurance companies, the provincial government, nor the federal government, the police have real, valid detailed statistics on the causes of traffic accidents: such as how many were caused my alcoholic drivers, how many were caused by speeding, how many were caused by poor road conditions, lousy snow clearing as well, etc not even in Ontario, Alberta, Quebec, BC as well.. …. so what do the insurance companies do with all the extra money they collect, certainly they of all persons should have firstly the best statistics on traffic accidents now in the first place, or how do they determine their rates??? Even Canada’s police chiefs have to rely on accident statistics from other countries, such as Australia, Great Britain, the US..
