When the police in Canada’s major cities tend not to be any better

When for decades even the poorly managed RCMP have also lied, stolen , misappropriated taxpayer’s, governmental funds, and took false advantage of the overall system, they all next realy now cannot be trusted, and they are not even cost effective thus so why should we  all now be surprised that even  the Police in Canada’s major cities including Vancouver, Montreal, Winnipeg, Toronto they also  tend not to be any better nor it seems the related justice ministers in fact..

 

Canada’s Police too often they also tend to like to arrest anyone ASAP and next even falsey claim they have done their job well.

At the G20 police fisco, the RCMP, OPP, and the Toronto police were involved, assisted by officers from several Canadian cities.

 

Police under fire as fresh statistics show charges dropped in 59% of G20 cases

Toronto Star- ‎Jun 20, 2011 Farrah McBride went to the G20 protests in downtown Toronto, upset by news of vandals smashing windows. But the assistant manager at a restaurant supply store was transformed from spectator to prisoner when police arrested virtually everyone in front of the Hotel Novotel on The Esplanade on the night of Saturday, June 26, 2010. She says she was held, handcuffed, at the temporary Eastern Ave. detention centre without adequate water, food or her correct anti-anxiety medicine. She suffered a severe anxiety attack before she was released without charge after 18 hours. It opened my eyes. I never imagined this would ever happen in Canada,” says McBride, 29. “I totally lost respect for police. I can’t even look at them now.”More than 1100 people were held over the Toronto G20 weekend, the largest mass arrest in Canadian history. Only 317 people were charged with summit-related criminal offences.And of those, 187 have seen their charges withdrawn, stayed or dismissed, according to statistics released by the Ontario attorney general’s ministry Monday. Just 24 pleaded guilty.“It’s a classic example of police overcharging,” says lawyer Clayton Ruby,Nathalie Des Rosiers, General Counsel of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, says demonstrators were targeted while simply exercising their democratic rights. Emilie Guimond-Bélanger rode on a chartered bus from Montreal to demonstrate peacefully for economic and women’s rights. Instead, she spent two cold, sleepless nights in custody, struggling to go to the bathroom out of sight of male guards, enduring two strip searches and begging for enough food to counter nausea. Peter Gill, 25, a Vancouver support care worker, says Ontario Provincial Police officers roughly arrested him as he walked away from a peaceful demonstration. He was handed to two Toronto police officers, who threatened to beat him up and drove fast in their squad car, slamming on the brakes so the handcuffed prisoner banged his head on the transparent divider, he says.They would say: “We’re going to pull over here and beat the s—t out of you and pretend you were resisting arrest.”Gill was charged with possessing explosives and weapons. But all he carried were harmless items like snacks and ear plugs, he says. Charges were withdrawn five months later.
Bad cops are never, never acceptable …

ABOUT TIME A New OPP Commissioner was announced.

 

Ex OPP police chief Julian Fantino  caught my attention when he clearly lied about the causes of car accidents in southern, he lied when he had said speeding is the main cause of car accidents in Ontario , he should have known better, distracted, drunk and impaired drivers, road ragers rather are the main cause of car accidents..  so next it came as no surprise to me when the Devil PM Stephen Harper himself asked Julian Fantino to become a Conservative federal MP candidate He should be right at home with the too may liars we have elected.. it seems we like to continue to elect Liars.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/10/01/let-us-all-stop-electing-liars-or-the-alcoholics/
 
 
People in leadership office do have to face higher penalties as an example now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included  are always to be exemplary in behavior,  conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary  judged, prosecuted  for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks.

In case you did not know it OPP tends too often stand for an Oppressive Perverse Police concerned mostly with revenue generating speeding tickets, and not rather catching impaired, drunk drivers, the real criminals.

Deputy Commissioner (DC) Chris Lewis  to replace Julian Fantino as OPP commissioner  Outgoing OPP chief won’t be missed at all  Outgoing Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Julian Fantino is keeping his options open for his next bad career move. Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty   appoints Fantino replacement as head of OPP . The new boss of the Ontario Provincial Police  is now Ontario’s top cop . The new  Commissioner of the Ontario Provincial Police, effective August 1, 2010,

Hypocritical Police and Conservatives want more policing over the Canadian citizens, the same persons who wrongfully firstly do not want to give us a detailed list, copy of all of their own expense accounts  and do note that too. Let the police rightfully start with the rightful better policing of themselves  and next deal  first with  our too often stealing, crooked, lying politicians, civil and public servants who also do steal  and now first also go after all the alcoholics who abuse their spouses, drive impaired … the cops included..  deal first with all all of  of   the persons who abuse any seniors.. and we now do need more cops rather in the hospitals arresting also all of  the bad Health Ministers, bad  doctors and bad nurses who fail to provide adequate medical aid to seniors, others etc

It seems if the OPP and commissioner Julian Fantino are involved things tend to be sour

One a rotten apple always a rotten apple.. Again a serious public rage directed toward Veterans Affairs Minister Julian Fantino.. Veteran Affairs minister 70-minute delay was ‘due to cabinet meeting that ran long’ cause the citizens and veterans are not important enough but veterans who spoke with CBC News are still angry with the cabinet minister, who wound up meeting only briefly with the vets..”What the minister did yesterday was disgraceful. The only thing we want is a commitment to keep open the eight offices and reopen the Prince George office. Veterans have earned that respect,” said a joint statement from veterans Ron Clarke, Bruce Moncur    http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/julian-fantino-apologizes-for-late-arrival-at-meeting-with-vets-1.2515303

.

Fantino was first elected to the House of Commons in a 2010 byelection. He was appointed to cabinet in 2011 and has also served as minister of international co-operation, minister of state for seniors and associate minister of defence.  Fantino had a long career in policing before entering federal politics, including serving as chief of the Toronto Police Service and commissioner of the Ontario Provincial Police.

http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/11/30/how-julian-fantino-went-from-star-mp-to-political-liability-he-has-not-heard-the-pleas-of-our-veterans/

.

Next Julian Fantino is out as the federal Veterans Affairs  minister  too.. Jan 5, 2015. He becomes associate minister for national defence.  Julian Fantino  had  become a political vulnerability for the Conservative government in recent months. ” The Conservatives’ troubles on the veterans’ file started a year ago when some former military personnel objected to the closing of several Veterans Affairs offices across Canada. There has also been anger over layoffs and the department returning more than $1 billion to the federal treasury since 2006. In addition, Auditor General Michael Ferguson released a stinging report on wait times for mental health services in November, while the government was accused of trickery after it was revealed $200 million in new funding for mental-health services for veterans was to be spread out over 50 years.”

TORONTO (CBC) – Ontario Attorney General Chris Bentley is defending the removal of four government lawyers from a case involving the province’s Special Investigations Unit, the Ontario Provincial Police, and the force’s commissioner, Julian Fantino.  Just hours before the court case began Thursday in Toronto, the government lawyers from the Ministry of the Attorney General withdrew their representation for the SIU, which has alleged that Fantino and OPP officers violated the Police Act regarding SIU investigations. Earlier this week, it came to light that Ian Scott, the director of the SIU, together with the signed backing of the four provincial government lawyers, had taken the unprecedented step of siding with a pair of grieving families of two men shot and killed last summer by OPP officers.  New Democrat MPP Peter Kormos noted other government lawyers are still working on the case, representing Fantino. The SIU has accused Fantino and a number of his officers of breaking the law by failing to properly co-operate with probes into the shootings. The watchdog has accused Fantino of failing to ensure officers promptly notified the SIU of one case last June. In a second incident, Scott has accused Fantino of failing to ensure officers were properly segregated by allowing them to consult the same lawyer and to prepare two sets of notes only submitting a final version of events vetted by their lawyer. The SIU had the four Ministry of the Attorney General lawyers draft its legal position and sign the statement of facts prepared for Thursday morning’s court hearing. In court Thursday. Also in court were about 25 family members and friends of the two dead men Doug Minty and Levi Schaeffer. Minty, a 59-year-old with a mental disability, was shot five times on June 22, 2009, by an OPP officer. Minty had become agitated as the result of a visit from a door-to-door salesman, and police were called to the house. “I want answers to Doug’s death,” said his mother, Evelyn Minty. “It should never have happened.” John Minty, a brother of Doug, said he was astounded at how many police organizations were in court. “I guess if I was in any way cynical, I’d believe they are trying essentially to spend us out of the case, that we’ll run out of money before they will,” he said. Schaeffer, 30, of Peterborough, Ont., suffered from schizoaffective panic and personality disorder. On June 24, 2009, Schaeffer was camping near Osnaburgh Lake when he got into an altercation with the OPP, which resulted in an officer shooting twice and killing him.  The hearing is to continue Friday. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100513/canada/canada_siu_opp_fantino_shootings

.

TORONTO – Families of two men shot dead by police in Ontario squared off against police groups Thursday in a court battle over how officers prepare notes of such incidents and deal with civilian investigators afterward.  Outside court, emotional family members said they were simply looking to find out exactly what happened to their loved ones. “I don’t want mothers to go through what I’m going through,” said Evelyn Minty, mother of Doug Minty, 59, who was shot dead in June last year. “It’s a year. I can’t forget it. I can’t sleep nights.” The families, through their lawyer Julian Falconer, are asking the courts for a declaration the officers violated the law around how police co-operated with the province’s Special Investigations Unit after the killings. They assert, among other things, that allowing the officer who pulled the trigger and officers who witnessed the incident to consult the same lawyer effectively amounts to collusion. They also say the officers first provided notes to their lawyer, before turning them over to the civilian investigators. SIU investigators expressed concern about police “tampering” with evidence, and the agency’s director, Ian Scott, said he could not determine what had happened because he could not rely on the officers’ notes. “I don’t know what to believe about the circumstances of my son’s death,” said Ruth Schaeffer, mother of Levi Schaeffer, 30, whom police killed in a separate shooting also last June. “I am hoping this may throw some light on it or at least change the situation where the police write their notes in a timely fashion and not two days after the fact, and also that they write their notes before meeting with counsel.”  The proceedings became murkier after the province’s Ministry of the Attorney General, of which the SIU is part, withdrew from the hearing, leaving Scott to find his own lawyer. Attorney General Chris Bentley’s hints at some kind of conflict of interest prompted the opposition New Democrats and Minty’s relatives to accuse him of succumbing to police-union bullying. “In this most peculiar, this bizarre, this astounding turn of events, the attorney general responds to police pressure and this alleged conflict by pulling his lawyers from representing its own agency,” New Democrat Peter Kormos said outside the legislature.  Outside court, Doug Minty’s sister, Diane Pinder, said it appeared the police unions had scared Bentley. “The SIU had backed us, and now they’ve pulled out,” Pinder said. “They’re intimidated by the police union.” Minty, of Elmvale, Ont., who was mentally challenged, was shot five times outside his home, apparently after threatening the officer with a small utility knife. Two days later, Schaeffer, of Peterborough, Ont., who had mental-health issues, was shot dead at a remote lake in northern Ontario following an altercation with two officers.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100513/national/siu_investigations

I choose, I make a choice

 

I choose, I make a choice as to what I do, read and write as well. So do all of us continually, daily now too, the Cops and Professionals, Civil and Public Servants AS WELL and I am really getting tired of all the bad people who do wrongs and try to blame the other persons.. THE DEVIL DID NOT MAKE YOU DO IT, AND THE BOSS DID NOT MAKE YOU DO IT, OR YOUR SPOUSE, RATHER YOU WENT ALONG WITH IT EVEN WHEN YOU LIED OR WHEN SET OUT TO MEET YOUR TRAFFIC TICKETS, SPEEDING QUOTA FOR EXAMPLE and you alone were to blame when you had a few drinks and still decided to drive the car or when you had committed income tax frauds…. So stop lying to me and to all of the others saying even that the Liberals alone are to blame for all the bad things now the Conservatives Minister do too.. for you are lying only to yourself when you try to blame any  others for your own immoral, poor acts. As simple as that too.
 
    
Our PM Minister Stephen Harper also can blame no one but himself now too for his bad acts, mismanagements, prologue of parliament.. “Grassroots fury greets shuttered Parliament  Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s decision to once again suspend Parliament is being regarded by critics as a self-serving attempt to sidestep opposition questioning about the Afghan mission “. “So judgments of Harper boil down to his ability to implement innovative policies and his behaviour. The behaviour traits that make me distrust him are many. He’ll drop a platform promise, or adopt an opposition plan to stay in power. Remember, it was the threat of election that forced Harper to act on the economy, adopting opposition demands, to avoid an election at a time when he and his ministers swore there was no economic crisis. He cannot debate an issue on its merits: everything is ALWAYS spin. He shames all opponents. He controls media access. He refuses to accept the supremacy of parliament and augments executive powers. Harper lacks the character to be PM. It’s that simple. In short, Harper is a controlling demagogue who hasn’t the intellectual or personal skills to manage by consensus; he can only divide and conquer. Well, he’s dividing us too, and that is something we should not tolerate any longer.”
 
Jobs picture unchanged in December CBC – Fri Jan 8, 10:16 PM Employment was flat in December and the jobless rate remained at 8.5 per cent, Statistics Canada says…  and yet we continue to read, to hear the lies, the false spins.. the recession is over, the stock market is great, homes are selling again.. or that the GOVERNMENT IS DOING A GREAT JOB..  as major concern over unemployment still is ongoing and clearly a very lot more has to be even done. “I don’t think the Conservatives have ever really had a job-creation strategy.” NDP MP Glenn Thibeault

All Cops need to go after real criminals still

 
 

 .

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

.

The self serving political watchdogs, the police forces in Canada  in reality they  still do too  often lie when they say they serve the citizen’s, public best interests..

.

Too many police officers are now too often guilty of their most serious neglect of public trust and their duty. The related truth is that neither an independent police investigation, a new police commissioner,  a promised provincial or federal investigation, or just more politicians promises too often still   will not bring the much needed justice. All of the governments can prohibit the initial and further employment of any known racists for any jobs, and can  punish them for their racists acts, views.

.

Police managers continue to lie with their own promises of the reforming of bad cops and the bad cops keep killing, abusing  innocent persons. The possible retraining of bad  police officers is always anyway a false myth. What thus is always needed is the real  the dismissal, criminal prosecution, of the guilty cops. So where is it?

.

Speeding is not the main cause of car accidents, impaired driving is, but too many cops are alcoholics it seems who wrongfully do sympathize with drunks and as a result do not arrest drunks all year..

Ontario stands firm on street racing law Toronto Star  A judge overturned the stunt-driving conviction of Jane Raham, 62, of Oakville who accelerated past a truck to get out of its blind spot. A second Ontario judge has ruled that the province’s stunt driving legislation is unconstitutional, but provincial police say they will continue to lay charges under the so-called street racing law.A street-racing charge automatically leads to a conviction, which can carry a minimum fine of $2,000, an immediate driver suspension and vehicle impoundment, as well as a maximum jail sentence of six months.Justice Peter West, a provincial court judge in Newmarket, found that an accused driver’s Charter rights are “clearly infringed” by the potential jail time because the law doesn’t permit the person to put forward a defence. More than 15,000 drivers have been charged under the stunt driving laws since they were introduced in 2007, Ont. street-racing law constitutional, says AG CTV.ca

Judge tosses stunt-driving charge as unconstitutional National Post

EVEN COPS DO NOT THINK SPEEDING IS A SERIOUS CRIME…

Feb. 10 2009 4:35:51 PM  The Canadian Press  TORONTO — It appears no one is exempt from Ontario’s street racing law — including the police. A provincial police officer in an unmarked vehicle was stopped on Highway 403 on Jan. 31 for driving 65 km/h over the limit. Det.-Const. Heidi Fischer was charged after an investigation determined she was “not within the lawful execution of her duties at the time.” Because she was charged with exceeding the speed limit by more than 50 km/h, her driver’s licence was suspended for seven days — and her police vehicle was also impounded for a week..

ALL THESE HARSHER POLICE DEMANDS ARE MAKING CANADA  A  POLICE STATE  Giving more money to the polcie does not increase justice rather it tends to make a police state instead..

It is billed by the London Police Department Chief as “the best (shooting) range in Ontario.” At $22 million, it is certainly modern but one of the features might sit poorly with judges and civil libertarians.  While police can shoot a fleeing suspect that presents an imminent threat to the public, it is relatively rare in most crimes and raises obvious questions under Tennessee v. Garner. The entire project will ultimately cost $32 million and the facility’s gun range is billed as training officers to do a range of shooting,
http://jonathanturley.org/2009/12/09/canadian-police-department-builds-new-firing-range-that-helps-train-officers-how-to-shoot-fleeing-suspects/

Meanwhile  a Toronto doctor is facing a disciplinary hearing over allegations he approved special meal allowances for people on welfare and disability programs according to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.  Dr. Roland Wong,  said he continues to approve applications for the special diet but only if he believes patients have an underlying medical condition that qualifies them for the financial supplement.  “Today, I signed maybe five, four,” he said. “Sometimes more, depends.”  He accused the auditor general of having a very “slanted view” of the program, and suggested he should be looking instead at the woefully inadequate support payments paid to people in need.  Wong said he wasn’t overly concerned about the disciplinary hearing because it was based on a complaint laid against him by a municipal councillor.  “This is a case of politicians against a physician, not the patient against the physician,” he said.  The Special Diet Allowance provides up to $250 per month to a person on social assistance who requires special foods for such conditions as diabetes.  Councillor Doug Holyday said  . “This can’t go on.”  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/torsun/091209/canada/doc_faces_probe_over_dietary_payouts     Quebec and other provinces have no such adequate help program and why?

It is not the rapists, drunk drivers that mostly  fill the courts calendars, docks it is mostly the revenue generating traffic tickets.. if the government wants to get tough on crime, as it purports, it should go after the real criminals. Drunk, impaired drivers too.  After all speeding is not the major cause of vehicular accidents, what you did not know that yet? and the police Chief himself did not tell you? What is then the cause of major car accidents? Drunk driving, road rage, impaired driving, distracted while driving…. and what the revenue generating traffic division has not gone after all this mostly instead yet too? and why Not? The Cops becoming judge and jury, now taking the law into their own hands  even when they still say ” In most cases, our cops are the best to judge if stunt driving is really stunt driving. Or, is it simply speeding. If that is the case, they should charge accordingly or face more legal challenges.” And them the cops still being continually soft on drunk drivers is cause too many cops do  drink alcohol now too?  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/speeding-is-not-the-major-cause-of-car-accidents-still/

Alcoholic Anonymous  helps  alcoholics  AND EVEN HOSPITALS ARE FOR ALL PERSONS. FURTHER MORE WHEN THE TAXPAYER’S MONEY IS ABUSED BY THIEVES, or bad civil and public servants, AND TOO MANY ALCOHOLICS, IT IS THE PROGRAMS, SERVICES TO THE POOR AND NEEDY PERSONS THAT ARE GENERALLY FIRST MADE TO PAY FOR IT. WE NEED BETTER BUDGET CONTROLS AND BETTER PUNISHMENT OF THE BAD GUYS TOO.IN ONE YEAR 60% of fatally injured drivers in Canada had a positive reading for blood alcohol and 160,000 people were convicted of impaired driving .

And   generally alcohol-related driving offences account for approximately 25% of all Criminal Code prosecutions. 

If you drink and drive, it’s everybody’s business  still. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/11/11/no-rcmp-alcoholics-it-seems/

This also offers a Canadian window into the state’s overwrought preoccupation with making money at all costs, disregarding the citizens concerns too. Sadly Like too many political parties it seems the citizens mainly do not count, their views or needs, desires. they only count on election days. I was once talking to deputy Minister Ken Kowalski of Alberta about this as to why and he replied cause in Alberta they do not pay the taxes. But rather the real reason is the too often lack of respect for the all of citizens still by our leaders, civil and public servants most political parties Canada wide.. Police, RCMP’s unacceptable, poor attitudes towards most of the citizens now as well

Provincial Police Commissioner, police personnel also known to play dirty politics,

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/02/13/time-for-us-all-to-fight-to-lower-police-costs-canada-wide-rcmp-included/

Canada’s too often bad cops, for  real actions speak louder to me than any words.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/11/ex-toronto-police-chief-julian-fantino-is-one-of-those-bad-apples/

 When even the  police chiefs, police personnel  even are also known to play dirty politics, who can you trust then?

A criminal probe of perverse OPP  Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner  Fantino’s abuse of tax payer’s money is in order. If things do not go the way he wants in court, he merely appeals and appeals and appeals cause it costs him nothing, and he knows the taxpayers will pay for it.

OPP chief ordered to retake witness stand Globe and Mail – ‎Nov 13, 2009‎  Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Julian Fantino has been ordered to go back to the witness stand and pay $20,000 in costs to two officers in whose disciplinary hearing the commissioner had been subpoenaed to testify.  Commissioner Fantino had been in the unusual position of being cross-examined about allegations that he used the internal OPP disciplinary process to wage a vendetta against a high-ranking officer. The allegations were made in the disciplinary hearing of two OPP internal affairs officers, Superintendent Ken MacDonald and Inspector Alison Jevons. Already, the legal saga has cost nearly $500,000 in public money, according to documents that Supt. MacDonald and Insp. Jevons obtained through Freedom of Information requests, said their lawyer, Julian Falconer. The bill is assumed by the Ontario Ministry of Community Safety & Correctional Services, an OPP spokesman said. Commissioner Fantino’s cross-examination had been halted after he alleged that the adjudicator in the disciplinary case, retired judge Leonard Montgomery, was biased. But in a unanimous ruling today, three judges of the Ontario Court of Appeal dismissed the commissioner’s claim. “The events in this case fall far short of the type of conduct that would give rise to a reasonable apprehension of bias,” the judgment said. The court ordered the commissioner awarded $20,000 in legal costs for the two officers. According to testimony at the disciplinary case, Commissioner Fantino wrongly suspected Supt. MacDonald of leaking information to local municipal politicians. Mr. Falconer alleged in court filings that, as a result , the commissioner pursued a vendetta against Supt. MacDonald by charging him and Insp. Jevons in an unrelated disciplinary matter relating to their investigation of another officer’s acts in a domestic dispute. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/03/29/no-such-thing-as-a-little-bit-pregnant/

” CP TORONTO – Accusations of high-level political interference, petty vindictiveness and tarnished reputations will be on public display this week as Ontario’s top cop heads to court to force an adjudicator he accuses of bias to step down from a police disciplinary hearing.  The Divisional Court case Thursday that has entangled Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Julian Fantino comes years after an act of domestic violence that, at most, would have been a media footnote.  Instead, a years-long process was set in motion that has raised troubling questions about the politics of justice in Ontario.  A dust storm of allegations – witness tampering, personal reprisals, professional wrongdoing, legal chess games and judicial intimidation and judicial bias – still swirls.  Court files and hearing documents show it all began when a frightened Susan Cole called 911 one evening in April 2004.  She said her estranged husband, provincial police Const. Robert Alaire, had taken a baseball bat to her car at their home in Gananoque, Ont.  Det.-Sgt. Mark Zulinski and other officers responded. They asked her to leave her home. They did not arrest Alaire.  Cole complained. Her husband, she said, should have been arrested.  “It should have been a slam dunk,” Cole said in an interview. “(Instead) it’s a nightmare. It’s just not right.”  Cole’s complaint reached the civilian agency that oversees the province’s police. It asked for an investigation.  Two senior officers in the Ontario Provincial Police’s professional standards bureau – Supt. Ken MacDonald and Insp. Alison Jevons – eventually concluded proper procedure had not been followed.  They recommended “education” rather than sanctions.  The union that represents provincial police officers was outraged.  “We may have the ammo to take down MacDonald,” the union’s lawyer, Gavin May, wrote in an email to Karl Walsh, the president of the Ontario Provincial Police Association, in August 2006.  “We may get two for the price of one.”  The association formally complained about the two officers two weeks later. The complaint landed on the desk of Ontario’s top cop – freshly appointed Commissioner Julian Fantino.  Fantino was also dealing with fallout from his plans to restructure the 6,000-member police force he now headed. Someone was leaking the plans to town council in Caledon, northwest of Toronto, and some local politicians didn’t like what they were hearing.  Fantino concluded the leak must have come from MacDonald, witnesses testified.  In a parking lot on March 1, 2007, Fantino said to another senior officer: “Will you execute the disloyal one, or should I?”  Fantino later explained the comment as humour, or “appropriate” police speak, a way of saying he wanted the leak stopped and an end to the distractions it was causing.  What he didn’t know was that Chief Supt. Bill Grodzinski made notes of the conversation.  Fantino charged MacDonald and Jevons, both of whom he transferred out of the professional standards unit without speaking to them or their supervisors, under the Police Services Act.  The two officers stood accused of misconduct and deceit related to their investigation of the response to Cole’s 911 call.  Any suggestion he laid the charges to appease the police union or to get back at MacDonald for the leak were “hysterical nonsense,” Fantino has said.  The first two associates Fantino appointed to preside over the hearing against MacDonald and Jevons both stepped down over issues of potential bias.  Months passed before Leonard Montgomery, a retired Superior Court justice with 33 years on the bench, would step into the increasingly mucky swamp as adjudicator.  Called to testify, Grodzinski produced his notes, including those of Fantino asking about executing the “disloyal one.”  The next morning, the officer found out he was being transferred.  Fantino later said he thought he was doing Grodzinski a favour, although he expressed disdain about the “cheat notes.”  “People who know me do not hold onto these notes for later retribution,” he said.  Grodzinski was blunt.  “I viewed the transfer . . . as an immediate punishment, sanction, reprisal – use what word you wish,” Grodzinski said.  Intervention from Deb Newman, deputy minister with the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, undid the forced transfer.  Julian Falconer, acting for Jevons and MacDonald, denounces the transfer threat as nothing short of witness tampering.  The hearings against MacDonald and Jevons proceeded amid increasing acrimony between the prosecution led by Brian Gover, a well regarded, experienced former Crown lawyer acting for Fantino, and the defence.  The defence argued to have the case thrown out as an abuse of process.  During hearings in October in which Fantino insulted Falconer and tensions ran high, Fantino changed some of his testimony. The notion that someone had tipped him off during a lunch break led Montgomery to remark that he was “upset.”  Gover filed a motion – Fantino was in the middle of being cross-examined – asking Montgomery to step down as biased.  He would take the matter to court if Montgomery refused, Gover said, adding the attorney general backed his position.  Within a few hours, the ministry disavowed any such backing and said Attorney General Chris Bentley had not been involved.  A stunned Montgomery branded Gover’s comments as attempted judicial intimidation and refused to step down.  If the ministry had indeed said it wanted him off the case, the political interference was astounding and the conflicts of interest “endless,” Montgomery wrote.  Gover remained adamant the attorney general wanted Montgomery gone and had pledged its support.  Falconer, in the interim, demanded his interrupted cross-examination of Fantino go ahead. Fantino’s new lawyer, Tom Curry, asked Divisional Court to stay the proceedings until the recusal motion was decided.   The court refused to interfere. Montgomery was perhaps just “calling a spade a spade,” the judge said.  Fantino appealed.  A three-judge panel split in his favour, staying his cross-examination until after the recusal motion is dealt with on Thursday.  In the interim, MacDonald and Jevons sit quietly through hours of hearings, seemingly no closer to having their case decided.  Cole, who said the two officers were the only ones who ever helped her, said she was dumbfounded at what her complaint unleashed almost five years ago.  All she ever wanted, she said, was for provincial police to implement a sensible policy when officers are involved in domestic violence.  “It’s gone on to actually hurt some really good people. Like it’s just endless.”” Nasty Fantino battle started with baseball bat, winds through courts 
  

OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino has lost an attempt to remove a retired judge presiding over a high-profile disciplinary hearing. The Ontario Divisional Court ruled yesterday that Justice Leonard Montgomery did not show bias against Commissioner Fantino in comments made as the adjudicator of a sometimes fractious hearing. “The matters complained of do not give rise to a reasonable apprehension of bias,” said the Divisional Court panel in a 3-0 decision. The court ordered the disciplinary hearing to resume in front of Judge Montgomery and indicated that it would be “conjecture” to suggest he would not act properly in the future, given the removal attempt by Commissioner Fantino. Otherwise, any side unhappy with a judge “could attempt to remove an unwanted judicial officer simply by bringing a complaint of bias against the officer,” the court said. “That would be inimical to the proper working of the justice system.” Julian Falconer, who represents Supt. MacDonald and Insp. Jevons, said his clients want to resume the hearing and the cross-examination of Commissioner Fantino as soon as possible. “This has been hanging over their heads for years. Apparently limitless (taxpayer’s)  resources have been poured into delaying this matter,” Mr. Falconer said, noting that there have been three separate court hearings related to the attempt to remove Judge Montgomery.http://www.nationalpost.com/news/canada/story.html?id=1375420

Speeding is not the major cause of car accidents still

“Studies talk about how distracted driving is the number-one cause of accidents,”

We all can easily see how perverse the Justice systems are in Canada, Canada wide,  and the related judges, Politicians  now as well.  For example  the Winnipeg Police Service boasts a record-breaking $14 million in photo-radar fines for 2014,  merely the latest mark of an other  city gone mad with revenue generating traffic tickets,  and it  represents a dramatic increase of 25% over 2013, and is the equivalent of a $22 ticket issued to every man, woman and child in Winnipeg..

Too many Canadian medical experts say the goverments do not address a major public-health problem: the overprescribing of opioids that has led to an epidemic of drug abuse and overdose deaths. Canada ranks as the world’s second-highest per capita consumer of opioids. In Ontario alone, more than 500 people die each year from opioids, exceeding motor vehicle deaths, according to the provincial coroner’s office.

While Automobile traffic accidents are the number one cause of death for Americans, Canadians  ages 3 to 33 and while Automobile traffic accidents are the most common source of personal injury the reality is that  NOT ONLY IS SPEEDING NOT THE MAIN CAUSE OF ACCIDENTS, RATHER ROAD RAGE AND  IMPAIRED DRIVING ARE. but the  statistics also still indicate that hospital deaths now due to hospital acquired sickness, medical errors, medical negligence exceedingly surpass all of these deaths, numbers. And yet here not enough is being done about this and why is that?
 .
Too many people Canada wide do now often complain about still being harassed, bullied by Traffic cops and getting unnecessary traffic tickets, especialy it seems in Ontario, Alberta, Manitoba too. the Cops are no angels themselves for sure.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/06/12/speed-related-highway-fatalities/

Drink Alcohol and Die « The non conformer’s Canadian Weblog   Drink Alcohol and Die or Kill is fast becoming Canada’s preoccupation, main goal, slogan.. Alcohol and alcoholics the unacceptable main cause of vehicular  accidents, domestic violence, and so many other ills… DRUNK DRIVING  KILLS AT LEAST 5 TIMES MORE PERSONS OVER SPEEDING FIRSTLY  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/01/02/alcohol/  
About the bad drivers.. Now Speed-related highway fatalities are down some 42 per cent in Ontario supposedly  this year, and much of that has to do with the new laws enacted last spring, Ontario Provincial Police commissioner Julian Fantino said.  But since speeding causes apparently less than 15 percent of the overall accidents, and bad cars, bad vehicles, road rage, drunk drivers, impaired drivers, talking on the phone causes the majority of the accidents still so how much did the police help now to  reduce these more important statistics? Nothing again? and why not? and why is it too often unacceptably the bad cops are never found guilty as well?

Alberta drug and alcohol deaths have doubled in the past decade  Edmonton Sun  CALGARY — The number of recorded drug and alcohol deaths in Alberta has more than doubled in the past decade, says the province’s chief medical examiner. From 1998 to 2008, Alberta’s population has grown by only 13% while the annual number of non-suicide deaths attributable to intoxicants has leaped to 437 from 210. Kim Borden, research officer with the chief medical examiner’s office, was at a loss to explain why the number would so far exceed the province’s population increase. “But I do know drugs and drug-related deaths are a huge problem — it’s right up there with car crash fatalities,” she said. “It’s growing every year.” , the figures for deaths caused by drugs are likely much higher because the number of autopsies are so limited.
So vehicular  speeding is not the major cause of accidents, deaths but impaired driving and yet the police like to go after speeders, over the drunk drivers still and why was that?
It is not the rapists, drunk drivers that mostly  fill the courts calendars, docks it is mostly the revenue generating traffic tickets.. if the government wants to get tough on crime, as it purports, it should go after the real criminals. Drunk, impaired drivers too.  After all speeding is not the major cause of vehicular accidents, what you did not know that yet? and the police Chief himself did not tell you? What is then the cause of major car accidents? Drunk driving, road rage, impaired driving, distracted while driving…. and what the revenue generating traffic division has not gone after all this mostly instead yet too? and why Not? The Cops becoming judge and jury, now taking the law into their own hands  even when they still say “ In most cases, our cops are the best to judge if stunt driving is really stunt driving. Or, is it simply speeding. If that is the case, they should charge accordingly or face more legal challenges.” And them the cops still being continually soft on drunk drivers is cause too many cops do  drink alcohol now too?  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/speeding-is-not-the-major-cause-of-car-accidents-still/
VICTORIA — Alcohol consumption has increased almost twice as much in British Columbia as it has in the rest of the country, according to a new study. Researchers at the University of Victoria Centre for Addictions Research say British Columbians’ alcohol consumption has risen 16 per cent since 1998. That’s almost twice the nine per cent increase seen in the rest of Canada. http://www.vancouversun.com/health/Drinking+rises+faster+than+rest+Canada/2322114/story.html
 .
and if that is true now there should be twice as much arrests for drunk driving and twice as much prison incarceration for drunk driving too? is there or why not?

Saskatchewan has introduced the toughest repeat drunk-driving sentencing policy in Canada, just in time for the holiday party season. As of Friday in Saskatchewan, there will be a minimum mandatory 30-day jail sentence for repeat offenders who have had one prior conviction in the past five years or two convictions in the past ten years.  Further, if a convicted drunk driver has two convictions in the past five years or three in the past ten years, the mandatory jail sentence will be 120 days.  These sentences will be more severe if the drunk driving offences have caused bodily harm or if the offender is found to be driving while disqualified. http://www.torontosun.com/news/canada/2009/12/09/12098391.html
.
Yet  ex Ontario OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino called it “the Lord’s work arresting anyone except the cops for speeding, thus ” “Saving lives“. The devil disguised as an angel of light again. He said his officers will “make no apologies” for continuing to enforce a law that gives police the power to impound vehicles, suspend licences, and slap high fines against drivers before the driver has a chance to appear in court. After all it is a profitable revenue generating law too.

False image of racing.. On Sept. 4, 2009 Ontario Justice G. J. Griffin overturned an earlier guilty verdict on a grandmother caught doing more than 50 km/h over the posted limit of 80 km/h on a stretch of Highway 7 near Kaladar. At the time, Jane Raham, 62, was overtaking a truck. Among many other opinions, Justice Griffin said Raham certainly didn’t conjure up the image of a stunt driver. Griffin’s ruling means convicting someone on excessive speeding alone under the street racing law is now considered unconstitutional.  That makes some common sense. And it doesn’t mean reckless street racers who swerve in and out of lanes endangering others won’t face the strict penalties under the street racing law. Those penalties include having your car impounded as soon as you’re charged and a $2,000 to $10,000 fine. Some may say driving more than 50 kilometres over the posted speed limit is dangerous so it should fall under the stunt driving law. But there are already sufficient fines and penalties, not to mention insurance ramifications, to deter driving at such a high speed. Impounding someone’s car at the scene in a simple case of speeding does seem somewhat onerous. Jailing them – although up to the discretion of a judge – would still be outrageous. 
.
After all speeding is not the major cause of vehicular accidents, what you did not know that yet? and the police Chief himself did not tell you?

What is then the cause of major car accidents? Drunk driving, road rage, impaired driving, distracted while driving…. and what the revenue generating traffic division has not gone after all this mostly instead yet too? and why Not?

The Cops becoming judge and jury, now taking the law into their own hands  even when they still say ” In most cases, our cops are the best to judge if stunt driving is really stunt driving. Or, is it simply speeding. If that is the case, they should charge accordingly or face more legal challenges.”
.   
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..
 .
 In regard also to the  Quebec bill to amend the Highway Safety Code and the Regulation respecting demerit points which was adopted on December 19, 2007.  The rules and measures adopted mainly concern drinking and driving, speeding, photo radars and red-light cameras, driving courses, the use of cell phones while driving, and over-speed governors for certain heavy vehicles. This legislation introduces more severe penalties for repeat offenders of impaired driving and excessive speeding. It allows for the implementation of a photo radar and red-light camera pilot project providing for three photo radar locations and the installation of red-light cameras at two intersections in each of the three pilot regions. These fifteen locations will be announced at a later date. The law also provides for the institution of mandatory driving courses for new drivers and imposes probationary driver’s licenses on all new drivers, including new drivers of 25+ years of age, as well as gradual access to demerit points for new drivers under 25. A driving course will also be mandatory for mopeds. it will henceforth be forbidden for drivers to use a hand-held cell phone while driving but the person can still do text messaging, and what an contradictory absurdity too.. The activation of over-speed governors is now mandatory for certain heavy vehicles, and the maximum speed for these vehicles must be set at 105 km/h.  The law also provides for the obligation to equip vehicles with winter tires from November 15 to April 1, greater latitude for municipalities that regulate speed limits on their territory and the possibility to carry out pilot projects, in particular for new types of vehicles. New road safety measures come into force in Québec on April 1, 2008: The use of hand-held cell phones will be banned from then on .Tougher penalties will be imposed on drivers guilty of excessive speeding  Some of the motives for the false, partial restive applications, implantation of these laws can certainly now still be questioned as well. Some of the motives for the false, partial restive applications, implantation of these laws can certainly now still be questioned as well.

The oppressive police enforcement of revenue generating speeding tickets enforcement is still  basically economically beneficial   to a very small, isolated segment of society, the related cops, judges, lawyers, and it is false  job security approach for them even in Alberta. While the government of Alberta fails to often still to  deal with the still much too many bad managers, bad civil and public servants abusing tax payers money, even stealing,  not doing their jobs properly, unnecessarily taking out of town trips and charging it to the job still, Alberta today  is putting 15 new sheriffs on the road in Alberta. Alberta for decades, and the police  has been falsely preoccupied with putting every person in jail in Calgary, and Edmonton, all of  Alberta for speeding,  it seems and was another main reasons they spent so much money on building new court facilities in Alberta too… this is even all being done while statistics, experiences confirms that speeding does not kill, or cause the majority of accidents, but only drunk or drug impaired drivers, bad drivers, and road rage cause the majority of the accidents the government still wants to purse now mostly  the speeders more aggressively in Alberta.  
.
Police often do calls for tougher rules on others but not upon themselves. Such real hypocrites now still too. .   Do what I say over do what I do is part of the hypocrisy now existing too often too at all levels, federal, provincial, municipal, in cops as well and not just in many preacher’s lives now as well..
 .
Wrongful inactions, Cover ups, False denial of bad politicians, bad cops, bad persons, false pastors, false priests are much too common in Canada too.
.
As a citizen I too find it very dangerous when drivers do not stop at the stop signs, run through read lights, speed in residential areas, use a phone in a car and do their drive cars rather now now as well.. so we should ban now all car drivers firstly, practically now.  This is no more absurd than the New Project that hopes to slash the  actual  Edmonton residential car speed limits .  The speed limit will plunge as low as 30 km/h in some Edmonton neighborhoods next year as the city continues to wage its war on all lead-footed drivers.  A committee of council members  gave administration the green light to get to work on the pilot project. It will see the top speed hopefully lowered to between 30 km/h and 40 km/h on residential streets in three to five neighborhoods for a period of six months  for some people  the current 50 km/h top speed is too high for their neighborhood streets, It’s a mostly a quality of life issue for the people. The People want to feel safe.  A quality of life issue mostly  and not really a safety issue. It is cheaper to buy then some medical pills to help them to feel better though.   The reduced speed would not apply to major arterial roadways for now ?.
.
And them the cops still being continually soft on drunk drivers is cause too many cops do  drink alcohol now too?
 .
Note AGAIN this important  brief introduction to road safety .. Yes  you always do have to drive safely, in control, not impaired as well and yes there are many, many different factors that now can cause a vehicular, automotive  accident, including but not limited to the actual daily road conditions, even the type of tires you have .. for  it is a fact that good tires lead to a safer drive, and so does a 4 wheel drive.  Next when you start to first drive at any day do first immediately test the road condition by coming to a planned sudden stop at a slow speed too, and see firsthand how your car reacts accordingly.. then next do use this experience to set how you will drive the rest of the day too. And no matter what car, or tires you have, or who is the driver, if you do hit a patch of black ice, due clearly to the failure of others to apply salt and gravel on the icy / snowy road,  it can be very, very hazardous now too. Give them a fine, ticket, they firstly do deserve it too.  And  hypothetical if you do not drive at all you are less likely   to have an   accident, assuming another driver does not hit you while walking..

  .
The insurance industry itself too  often sleeps with legislators, cops because it wants to make loads of money by finding out reasons not to pay out as well.. they support traffic tickets even though they do not reduce the car accidents significantly cause it gives more money to the insurance firms,  this is immoral gouging of consumers too often rather too.. now what about having some honest watchdogs and legislators rather. Go after the drunk drivers, raise the price of the booze firstly..
 .
Even so, snow tires are still a wise choice for motorists in southern Ontario too. However, a snow tire is no surety against the repercussions of reckless or dangerous driving. And that’s the key thing.   More often than not, vehicular collisions on winter roads aren’t caused by the lack of snow tires on a vehicle. It’s (ALSO NOT ) caused by motorists who are driving too fast or not accordingly to the conditions.  This is also what Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Julian Fantino (FALSELY) touched upon this week when he urged the government to increase fines and demerit points for drivers speeding in bad weather conditions – whether it’s snow, heavy rain or thick fog.  Fantino’s pitch came on the heels of a weekend that saw provincial police officers respond to more than 3,000 collisions as large swaths of the province were walloped by two snowstorms. At least 40% of crashes are caused by speeding in poor conditions and not paying attention, Fantino said. (His  unofficial, unreliable statistics, remark NOW  refers to a small period of accidents and not RATHER  the  true statistics for the whole year firstly  since most accidents are caused by rage, impaired driving, poor drivers, vehciles and driver errors). The Highway Traffic Act already has provisions and penalties for speeding and careless driving. Do we really need another section in the Act that specifically addresses bad driving in poor weather?  No, we don’t.  What we do need is the strict enforcement of existing traffic laws – not just about speeding but also signaling turns and taking the proper precautions before changing lanes.”  http://www.tirereview.com/default.aspxtype=wm&module=4&id=2&state=DisplayFullText&item=13392
 .
“CP TORONTO – The head of the Ontario Provincial Police says drivers who crash in bad weather because of their own negligence should have to pay the bill.  Commissioner Julian Fantino will propose absolute liability legislation today under the Highway Traffic Act to hold irresponsible drivers accountable. This essentially means making drivers pay for accidents in which they were driving aggressively in poor weather, not insurance companies  Fantino says at least 40 per cent of crashes are caused because people are going too fast in poor conditions and not paying attention.  He says his proposal targets people “who could care less” about how they are driving when the roads are bad.   Fantino says his proposal mirrors laws currently on the books in almost every state in the U.S.” The fact that many of these road accidents had occurred in reality, honesty due to the cutbacks of the snow cleaning, removal  services is ommitted wrongfully.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/12/22/cops-lie-too/
.
The current top speed is unacceptable to some local people, especially when the  police generally don’t start issuing tickets until a motorist is driving at least 10 km/h above the posted limit.  “We need to do something to catch people’s attention,”  But  still the upfront cost of lowering the limit on all neighborhood streets would be in the millions of dollars, yes “a staggering amount.” That would include the cost of new signs, photo enforcement equipment, municipal, court overheads.  Most if not all of the costs may be offset by increased ticket revenue. Don’t forget the freebie, the increase of profits for the insurance firms with every police traffic ticket now issued as well. These  desired residential speed reductions are not effective unless they are enforced. Edmonton Police Chief Mike Boyd recently vowed to devote all possible resources to crack down on excessive speeding in the city after officers issued an average of almost one ticket per minute in their latest 24-hour speeding blitz. Generating thousands of dollars. It is still better and cheaper to buy the complaining residents some medical pills to help them to “feel better” though.

Most accidents are caused by drunk driving and the doctor does not mention this still?? what was that? he was paid by the liquor industry not to? or was PAID BY MONEY MAKING REVENUE COPS TO SAY SPEED ALONE MAINLY KILLS.. HOW ABSURD.. THIS Canadian doctor.. and not a Canadian Traffic engineer uses now US statistics ONLY to say speed alone kills? and he what HE THUS HAD considered also the number of drunk, impaired, road rage  drivers, that seem to increase very year as a fact for most of the deaths NO MATTER WHAT THE SPEED?  or what this did not bother him.. only the number of people who speed?  SPEED IS A MAIN FACTOR IN 5 TO 15 PERCENT OF THE ACCIDENTS.. AND WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF THE ACCIDENTS? THE 85 PERCENT.. it SEEMS THE DOCTORS IN UNITED KINGDOM CONTRADICT THIS CANADIAN DOCTOR IN THEIR TRAFFIC ACCIDENT STUDIES TOO.. SO WHAT ELSE IS NEW?  Preposterous COOKED results.. NOW get real..

Majority of accidents are caused by the drunk drivers firstly still.

 The federal justice minister is considering a new law that would allow police to conduct random breathalyzer tests on drivers, regardless of whether they suspect motorists have been drinking. http://www.cbc.ca/consumer/story/2009/10/05/random-breathalyzer-drunk-driving-test-law.html
I total agree with this law on condition the same test be administered also to all working civil and public servants, senators, politicians in the house of commons as well..
If you can’t drive effectively while impaired, drunk neither can you do your job effectively  as well.
Look at this, due to the undeniable Recession, budget and tax cuts,  Municipalities across Canada have  been cutting back even on their services, snow clearing now too, which has been leading up to more car accidents, and cause the police cannot tell the truth about their employers, the police now lie, and divert the truth, saying that speeding vehicles were the cause of most of the accidents.

CANADA WHERE THERE IS A SEPARATE JUSTICE, TAX SYSTEMS FOR THE RICH AND POWERFUL SUCH AS Bell,  BRIAN MULRONEY, CONRAD BLACK. INCIDENTALLY. THE RCMP CLEARLY FAILED ALSO TO GET ANY OF THESE BAD GUYS TOO.

Cops seem to have it too easy in Canada, they do what they want, they abuse citizens and tend to get away with it too. Too many COPS, persons distort  the LAW. it’s meaning still too.

The specific  Laws are created for a reason and given a certain set of conditions and circumstances.  When the circumstances or situation are not present then the law is basically not applicable. (2 Cor 3:6 KJV)   for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

WE ARE NOT TO WALK  “Not of works, lest any man should boast.”  Ephesians 5:9 

Jude 18-19 “”How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.”

Stephen Marche says the main question of the Oliphant Inquiry at this point is which of Brian Mulroney’s internal demons drove him into the company of Karl-Heinz Schreiber.. THE LUST OF MONEY THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL.

OTTAWA – Brian Mulroney’s explanation of his financial dealings with businessman Karlheinz Schreiber is filled with “inconsistencies and half-truths” and can’t be believed, the head of a public inquiry was told Wednesday. Richard Auger, the lawyer for Schreiber, used his closing arguments before Justice Jeffrey Oliphant to mount a frontal attack on the credibility of the former Conservative prime minister, contending that his testimony on major points has been unsupported by documentation or independent witnesses. “For the most part we are left with Mr. Mulroney’s word on the key issues in this inquiry,” said Auger. “Mr. Mulroney’s word alone cannot be accepted. . . . Mr. Mulroney’s story lacks every-day common sense.” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090610/national/mulroney_schreiber 

 

A tale of two taxpayers – one rich and lucky, one not Vancouver Sun – By Don Cayo, Vancouver Sun May 23, 2009 So I’m sitting in my office trying to figure out how Brian Mulroney pulled it off. I’m no expert, but I know a bit about tax policy and the Canada Revenue Agency.

In Canada the powerful few SEEM TO  too often to abuse public trust, offices   obviously. Six days of Brian Mulroney testimony  from  a man who rose to Canada’s highest elected office only to plunge to the depths of pocketing suspect cash gave the honest  law-abiding, taxpaying citizens morbid facts about the abuse of the legal, tax system again in Canada.. Brian he destroyed any of our remaining public faith in public officials, and our false   assumption that we all equally share the burden of paying income tax. It would be unwise for you to tuck $225,000 in household safes and a bank deposit box, keep silent about it for six years and then expect to pay taxes on only half. And yet this is what Brian Mulroney admitted to doing and he was wrongfully  given a tax break for doing so as well.” Brian Mulroney paid income taxes on only half of the $225,000 he received in cash from German-Canadian businessman Karlheinz Schreiber, a public inquiry has heard. Next “The most disturbing of those deals – and the one now most likely to trouble Stephen Harper – is the decision to pay Mulroney $2.1 million to settle a lawsuit over the 1995 letter Canada sent to the Swiss about the RCMP Airbus investigation. What the federal government didn’t know when it wrote that cheque was that Mulroney’s relationship with lobbyist Karlheinz Schreiber went well beyond the occasional cup of coffee to three memorably large cash payments.’ Now on top of all that  Mulroney’s legal bill to cost taxpayers $2 M Brian Mulroney’s six days of testimony have left taxpayers on the hook for $2 million in legal fees. Taxpayers will again pay Brian Mulroney’s legal costs. http://www.thestar.com/canada/columnist/article/637371

 >>Bell Canada, with the tacit approval of the Stephen Harper government, is trampling roughshod, over its own customers, including smaller ISPs.  http://www.p2pnet.net/story/22148/comment-page-1#comment-974510
 
TO BE FAIR THE LIBERALS ALSO GO ALONG WITH BAD BELL. I had spoken and asked directly Quebec’s finance minister Monique Forget to deal with bad bell but she was hesitant to and I wondered why till I had next read  that the new head of the Quebec’s pension fund is Michael Sabia, former head of Bell Canada Enterprises, who took over in March of this year.
 
QUEBECERS AND THE Quebec’s pension fund IS NOW IN REAL  TROUBLE,  JUST LOOK AT THE BAD EFFECT THE SAME PERSON SABIA  HAD ON BELL, WHOSE STOCKS, SALES, SERVICES, CUSTOMER SATISFACTION  HAVE GONE DONE DRASTICALLY. I HOPE THEY ARE ALL NOT STUPID ENOUGH TO LET HIM INVEST OUR MONEY INTO BELL AS WELL
  
>”all people such as myself with a Bell telephone line but use a 3rd party ISP for high-speed Internet sue Bell in a class action lawsuit! This is simply based on contract law, I have a Bell home phone line that I pay strictly for local calling  . When I switched from dial-up Internet access many years ago to high-speed, I went with a 3rd party ISP,  and my ISP contacted Bell on my behalf to get my local line connected to Bell’s high-speed line. So then in my next Bell bill under monthly services a new item appeared it said: 1 High Speed-up to 4.0 Mbps and there was no extra charge for this service!” .. Just because Bell connects its residential customers to its high-speed service so that these consumers may use 3rd party ISP resellers of Bell’s capacity; does that give Bell any legal right to sift through this private data, set parameters of access to Internet speed based on the type of data being sent/received and set predetermined time frames in order to restrict the flow of data?”
 

Therefore I have a contract with Bell and I can sue them for interfering with my phone line. But why do we need a government and pay taxes if we have to fend ourselves?

 More trouble for OPP officer on bail in corruption scandal Toronto Star –    The senior Ontario Provincial Police officer at the centre of a judicial corruption scandal wiped tears from his eyes yesterday when a Justice of the Peace told him he would be granted bail. The charges, filed in court yesterday, include careless storage of firearms and ammunition, possession of an explosive substance and possession of prohibited weapons. These allegations relate to two rifles, crowd control grenades, shuriken throwing stars, nunchuka chain sticks and brass knuckles that police allegedly found on property he owns in Caledon and elsewhere.

Attorney General watches Taser inquiry to see if new evidence arises Tue Apr 14, 12:46 AM  VANCOUVER, B.C. – RCMP officers who testified at the inquiry into the death of Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver’s airport could still face charges after the inquiry but so far there is nothing to suggest that might happen, B.C. Attorney General Wally Oppal said Monday.
 
Clearly all 4 RCMP officers now  lying to a judge, being guilty of obstruction of justice, perjury to the courts,  wrongful  use of force, excessive use of force, disrespecting a  persons rights, incompetency, are  not a punishable offence now even because all the justice ministers, too many politicians seem to do it regularly..  and again in reality the majority of the citizens now do know, do see the RCMP as very guilty but the bad BC justice minister cannot? Get real. I hope he now loses his reelection .. he Wally Oppal does not deserve to be reelected.

 Monday June 15,2009 Canadian Press  VANCOUVER — A judge has decided the inquiry into the death of Robert Dziekanski will be allowed to make findings of misconduct against the four RCMP officers involved. The officers who stunned Dziekanski with a Taser at Vancouver’s airport challenged Commissioner Thomas Braidwood’s authority to make findings of misconduct against them. Braidwood had warned the officers he would consider allegations made at the inquiry — that they acted improperly and then lied to cover up their actions. The officers claimed those allegations amount to criminal offences, which public inquiries can’t do. They also argued that federal police officers are outside the jurisdiction of a provincial inquiry. But Justice Arne Silverman rejected those arguments, which means the inquiry can resume as scheduled this Friday with closing submissions. Now go after the rest of the bad cops now too.

Cops, RCMP, Update

 2 FREE

NOW I HAVE HEARD ALL KIND OF REASONS WHY THE BAD EMPLOYEES WERE, ARE SUPPOSEDLY JUSTIFIED IN NOT DOING THEIR WORK PROPERLY BUT SOME HOW THE EXCUSES ALL APPEAR VOID WHEN COMPARED WITH THE OUTPUT OF THE GOOD WORKERS.

   .

THE TRUE COLOURS OF THE , Cops, RCMP,  ARE BEING EXPOSED, FULLY REVEALED Canada wide in the news media these days
 .
The scathing indictment of RCMP,  “the truth about what’s really going on inside the force. The short answer is an inept, insular and archaic group of RCMP executives has let the Force fall out of step with 21st Century policing.” “Unfortunately,” the idea of intimidating people is entirely consistent with the RCMP management’s way of managing conflict, not only with the public, but also with its own membership“ “The idea of protection is reflective of the RCMP executive’s view of the public they police. We have become the ‘enemy’ and they go to ‘war’ with us each day, rather than collaborating with us to form a cohesive and consistent approach to policing our communities.”. “It is a psychologically unsophisticated idea to believe that the RCMP can investigate itself,”  “When I say this, I’m not questioning anyone’s integrity. I am stating a fundamental principle of human behaviour. Human beings are highly subjective organisms … we don’t like to see things that make us look bad…..  The RCMP is in need of significant transformational change in order to genuinely re-connect with the public and its own membership.” ” Mike Webster  police psychologist.
 .
These comments apply to all of Canada’s police forces that are mostly mismanaged generally, they today mostly have bad police chiefs, bad police sergeants and too many rotten, bad subordinates too. All because we have mostly bad, pretentious  justice ministers  as bad and not rather good managers.  Do see all the many other posts about the bad cops, RCMP, OPP here as well. Now there is a really great gap between how the cops see themselves and how the citizens DO see them,
  .
Anyone reading this site knows I really also do not put up and rightfully so.. with  the acts of the too often bad, crooked cops, RCMP included who wrongfully, clearly abuse their jobs, positions, authorities that includes all the cops in Alberta, Ontario, BC, and elsewhere who claim they are serving the public good when they clearly are generating revenue  to keep their own jobs, and hopefully get a promotion, raise. This applies still to the OPP, RCMP, Alberta Sheriffs, Calgary , Edomonton Police,  now as well who lie and like to mislead you that most of the traffic deaths are caused by speeding, when the reality is far from this.. speeding is the least cause of car accidents, rather impaired, drunken drivers, road rage and distracted drivers are..  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/05/19/albertan-sheriffs-generate-a-vast-revenue/
OST (a) A reader wrote to me this..  “I have learned about another reason  for accidents to happen. A fairly new driver drives a pick up truck with passengers on the back box, one of the box passengers talks to him and he turns his head towards the back box to reply the sentence whereby he hits a power post with the truck. Later on while driving from Edmonton to Gaspé he next hit a breaking car in the back while he was passing another car on the busy 417 Queens way at Ottawa. His sister also hit the ditch on the highway between Montreal and Québec because something fell on the floor in the car. A common reason for some accidents is due to a failure of the inheritance genes that gives one   the sense of distant proportions.”
.

” The local cops have more than 50% unmarked cars checking the drivers.  For the public they thus appear all dressed up. If you are a cop dissident just like myself the cops often next drove by my home frequently with unmarked cars, I would see them from shed window trying to get me personally. They managed to get other local drivers for   minor infractions instead.”

An expert report written by a police psychologist says an inappropriate level of force was used on Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski the night he was stunned by a Taser at Vancouver airport in 2007. Mike Webster, who was hired by the inquiry looking into Dziekanski’s death, testified Tuesday that the four RCMP officers called to the airport’s international arrivals lounge did not have an adequate plan to deal with the agitated man. Webster also contested police testimony that Dziekanski posed a significant danger to the officers. The officers should have known that the Polish man’s unresponsiveness to their orders was due to his disrupted cognition, Webster said.   http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2009/05/12/bc-taser-inquiry-wilson-dziekanski.html

.

Mind you that was apparent to most of us in the first place, we are all not that stupid and we tend to know what an pretentious, dirty, incompetent, immoral cop does.. they call themselves trained professionals but too often they  wrongfully are still mere thugs here in Canada now too.

.

Yeah we STILL ALL DO NEED HELP WE NEED SOMEONE TO DEAL WITH THE DIRTY RCMP,  and the dirty lying Albertan justice minister  WHO said that many of the citizens did not complain about the bad RCMP and their unneeded use of the Taser.. he is a liar like the RCMP
.
 
Top RCMP officer gives a cheap apologize  for airport Taser death while “a lot of the criminals are already going free, the four officers involved in this latest RCMP mess for example. Oh and interesting that you bring up drunk driving causing death because only one segment of our population seems to get away with it repeatedly. Off Duty officers.”  “When an organization looks after themselves more than who they are put in place to care for, it’s time to rethink at the roots.   ”  “Fancy that, It only took the top cop 1 year and 7 months to give his  half-assed apology that they were more or less forced to give. (Public  outcry). Now if they put some of them in jail, it might show their sincere.  We know that won’t happen though, their infallible.
 http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2009/05/11/bc-rcmp-apology-taser.html
opp_losersThe OPP also say that will be keeping a close watch on our driving over the next week, they kicked off the annual Road Safety Week campaign,  and what about drunk drivers, will the OPP wrongfully still go just mainly after the revenue generating speeders?

   When the Ontario Provincial Police announced two days ago that one of their senior officers was charged with defrauding Bombardier of $15 million, they failed to mention the sergeant was also accused of conspiring with prosecutors and accused criminals. The 28-year veteran allegedly assisted in helping accused criminals avoid prosecution and fixing charges with the help of Crown attorneys. opp2

 Stephen Marche says the main question of the Oliphant Inquiry at this point is which of Brian Mulroney’s internal demons drove him into the company of Karl-Heinz Schreiber.. THE LUST OF MONEY THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL.
,
 
Mulroney in hot seat over secret payments  OTTAWA – Brian Mulroney kept quiet about his financial dealings with Karlheinz Schreiber at a court hearing 13 year ago to avoid fanning the flames of suspicion already engulfing him, the chief counsel for a public inquiry suggested

 Our Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney testifies at the Oliphant Commission in Ottawa, this commission is probing Mulroney’s past business dealings with German-Canadian arms dealer Karlheinz 
Mulroney grilled for not disclosing Schreiber cash Canada.com 
.
Mulroney is an embarrassment Toronto Star –  Isn’t it interesting that whenever Conservatives screw up, it’s always the media’s fault. And almost always CBC. Of course it was the media that made Brian Mulroney meet with Karlheinz Schreiber, take his money, hide it and  try to get away without paying tax on the cash.Mulroney is an embarrassment to this country and to politicians in general..
 .
And no matter how he spins the recent polls show that it most people, 80 percent  do not believe our ex PM Brian Mulroney and they do still believe he is one of Canada’s biggest crooks as bad as the RCMP and our PM Stephen Harper and his bad boys..  Brian Mulroney kept quiet about his financial dealings with Karlheinz Schreiber at a court hearing 13 year ago to avoid fanning the flames of suspicion already engulfing him, and to avoid the inevitable  shame, guilt, being exposed ! Brian Mulroney’s supporters now also look as foolish as Brian does.
.
 
HOW COME IT IS NOT OBVIOUS TO BRIAN MULRONEY NOW THAT THE MORE HE TALKS THE MORE HE LOOKS LIKE A GUILTY FOOL.. HE IS IN FACT IS DIGGING A DEEPER PIT FOR HIMSELF BY HIS OWN RIDICULOUS DEFENSE, STATEMENTS. THIS ALL REMINDS ME OF BILL CLINTON AND HIS LUDICROUS MONICA AFFAIR  DEFENCE TOO.

Now Brian he finally admitted he took  clearly undeclared  bribe money while he was a PM… and what else did he do that he does not admit besides cheat, lie steal? Would have disclosed cash if questioned, Mulroney says OTTAWA – Brian Mulroney says he would have disclosed his cash relationship with Karlheinz Schreiber 12 years ago, if only federal lawyers had asked the right question when he gave sworn testimony as part of his defamation lawsuit against the government so instead he hid the truth cause it’s revelation would be clearly damaging, embarrassing to him, he deliberately hid the truth.  He told half truths, or half lies..

.

In the retelling of the meetings,   Mulroney stated it is “to his eternal regret” that he didn’t ask the German-Canadian dealmaker for a cheques, instead of cash; and that he let it happen three times without voicing one objection. yes, much too late years later especially after he got, caught, exposed, humiliated..  that is a funny

  A major plank in the Conservative’s 2006 minority win was a Federal Accountability Act, complete with a public appointments commission .. yet another Harper election promise that was nothing more than smoke and mirrors. Conservatives like Brian Mulroney, Stehen Harper  admitting any real personal accountablity.. you got to be kidding.. dream on..  http://www.stcatharinesstandard.ca/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=1571704
.
In the recent  B. C. election, the voter turnout  had dropped more than 20 per cent in recent years. Makes us all ponder as to why voters refuse any longer to exercise their so-called democratic right. the answer lies in our considering recent events precipitated by the Stephen Harper-led Conservative Party, an Ottawa civic leader’s criminal court case and Mr. Mulroney’s ongoing testimony in the Oliphant inquiry,  the Conservatives undeniably look openly   like bad bad persons.. people I do not want to be associated with. http://www.thedailyobserver.ca/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=1571514

Tories attack: bad manners, bad politics  The latest Conservative party television advertisements look like schoolyard bullies attacking the Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff and  are among some of the most offensive smears. The attempt to promote a message of “he’s just in it for himself” clearly is more applicable to Stephen Harper in the eyes of many.  You don’t have to be a Liberal to be offended by these attack advertisements. There are too many much better topics to make an issue over  those in Harper’s latest salvo of angry, slightly mean-spirited adds.

.

Clearly Our Conservative Prime Minister STEPHEN HARPER HAS HIS OWN FALSE DEFINITION OF A CANADIAN and thus his Tories are looking like narrow-minded bigots FOR ATTACKING ANYONE WHO HAS LEFT CANADA AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER BECAUSE its own record is not a strong selling point . Thus the Tories are SEEN as angry, slightly mean-spirited, defensive folks. Isn’t it time that Harperites drop the personal attacks on their political opponents  whom they see as enemies to be killed  and address the real problems of the nation that they were elected for?

.

A rationale Canadian is compelled to ask just how deep will the Tories  still  sink, even now  so low that they now they destroy all  decency that is supposed to be the hallmark of civilized citizenship. Canada, all Canadians are worthy of  much better than that.

.

Apparently Wayne Gretzky doesn’t rate as less Canadian for marrying an American and moving to Arizona to coach a hockey franchise. Michael J. Fox is not less Canadian for pursuing a successful Hollywood career as an actor. Pamela Anderson isn’t less of a citizen for her fame as an acting celebrity in California. Diana Krall isn’t less Canadian for marrying English musician Elvis Costello and living in London, or New York, or whichever world centre she happens to prefer. And Calgary-born soccer star Kevin McKenna didn’t betray his patrimony by signing with a professional club in the German league. But according to the Conservatives, Ignatieff is simply not up to Canadian standards because he succumbed to the temptations of a teaching career at some of the world’s most illustrious universities and now has the temerity to think he’s got the jelly to contend for the prime minister’s job. Gosh, Ignatieff could have settled for a sessional lecturer’s job at some suburban community college. Instead, he won a doctorate from Harvard and then, on the basis of his brains and scholarship, was awarded teaching posts at Cambridge, Oxford, the University of California, the University of London and the London School of Economics. Oh, yes, and the brainy bounder did something else equally un-Canadian and inexcusable. He wrote 18 books — some of them critically acclaimed — and as a consequence found himself in demand on the BBC. All that when he could have stayed in Canada, written nothing and perhaps developed a career in the toxic wasteland of Conservative talk radio. For this he’s now pilloried as an arrogant egghead who only returned to his country to sate a lust for power. The shame of it! What a betrayal of all things Canadian to achieve fame, respect and success elsewhere and then return home to your country to cap your career by offering yourself for public life.

.

What, one wonders, would the Conservatives make of the late Bobby Ackles  who had a stellar career in the National Football League and then came home to help revitalize the B.C. Lions and the Canadian Football League. Frankly, this kind of politics demeans democracy, insults the voters and further undermines their desire to participate in the process and says far more about those who embrace such a campaign of divisive belittlement than it does about the targets of the advertising. If you ask me, these attack ads are what’s un-Canadian, not Ignatieff’s career as a world-class intellectual. http://www.vancouversun.com/news/Tories+looking+like+narrow+minded+bigots/1603731/story.html

.
The power hungry Tories are apparently against all those things, depending on what day it is, who’s doing to talking and which way the wind is blowing.  “The latest attack ads against Michael Ignatieff prove the Liberals were right to brand the Tories as spiteful, mean-spirited and divisive. It also solidifies my decision to support the Liberals in the next election. Stephen Harper has shown his only goal is to retain power at any cost. Launching negative attack ads before an election campaign even begins reveals a desperation and fear among Conservative ranks. The Tories know that they finally have an opposition worthy of forming a government.” ” Not at all surprisingly, the signs of jealousy start to surface when forced to deal with an intelligent political newcomer who threatens to outshine and force accountability. These ongoing, financially wasteful Conservative ads speak volumes of the desperation of Stephen Harper’s struggle to keep power, while yet again providing sniping but no solutions. ” ” Liberals are now enjoying stronger public support than Conservatives. These oft-repeated attack ads, which emphasize that Ignatieff has spent 34 years in the United States and Britain, are desperate attempts to slow his remarkable momentum. But they’ve done so by appealing to xenophobia and bigotry. In the past, sensible Canadians have rejected such nonsense. I suspect the same will be the case this time ” ”  The latest attack ads on Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff by the federal Conservatives show once again how totally bereft of ideas and political solutions to serious issues the right wing has become. “

Harper attacks the liberal leader but instead got a whole bunch of free negative news media that is very damaging to the Conservatives..

Tories attack: bad manners, bad politics  Globe and Mail –  Even after their victories – they are in power remember – the Conservatives of the Stephen Harper party, still radiate the sullenness of a party denied, ..

.

  “Stephen Harper thinks if you’ve lived and worked outside the country you’re somehow less of a Canadian,”  Attack ads are unworthy  Attack ads may backfire  Attack ads insult public, not rivals  People before politics: Harper has failed to deliver for Canadians

“But perception is reality in politics, and the current perception of Harper in Quebec is that he’s “mesquin” or mean-spirited. He finishes a bad third as best prime minister in the polls, and he is prime minister. It has nothing to do with perceived competence, and everything to do with his perceived personality. Just as Joe Clark became known as a wimp, and Paul Martin became known as Mr. Dithers, Stephen Harper is getting a rap as Mr. Mean.”
