Now when it comes to the province of Quebec and the pensions of its municipal employees the most reasonable, practical solution to pay of the heavy debt in Quebec is for all the politicians and manager’s salary to be cut by 50 percent as well as their related pensions after all it was under their leaderships that the debts have arisen… and not the employees, Notice that the Municipal managers are still giving themselves big raises .. Top managers at the Montreal Transit Corporation, (MTC), or STM in French, are getting big raises for the 3rd straight year. The average increase for this year was nearly four per cent and the average salary for the top dozen or so bosses is pegged at more than 200-thousand dollars while salaries have increased, but not the quality of service. The MTC’s own yearly report says metro service interruptions due to mechanical reasons soared more than 20 per cent last year over the year before.
The Workers are not to blame for the Quebec pension problem:
Stealing from the employees pension fund to pay off the debts is immoral.
Municipal workers rightfully do stage rallies against Bill 3 as hearings on the immoral legislation get underway.
Quebec, and Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard, is falsely trying to snatch back promised pension money by fiat through its proposed Bill 3 pension reform legislation, without the legal process of bankruptcy. The bill would override existing contracts, and force a restructuring of some 216 different defined benefit pension plans in 1,100 municipalities across Quebec. The bill would give municipalities the power to suspend indexation of any workers retired as of Jan. 1, 2014.
FTQ’s secretary general Serge Cadieux said “The government is focusing all its attention to the demands made by certain mayors without considering any other suggestions made by the unions representing salaried municipal workers,”
The Montreal Police Brotherhood said that police officers will have to double their pension contributions. “There will be no police officer who will want to come to work in Montreal,” said the brotherhood’s president Yves Francoeur.

Alberta’s Auditor General’s report, recommendations are significant Canada wide, deal with decades old problem
EDMONTON — Alberta’s auditor general and Alberta Justice launched a $2.4-million probe into the Office of the Public Trustee after a senior trust officer was fired for allegedly stealing more than $120,000 from a trust he was administering. The revelation is contained in auditor general’s report, which also found Alberta Health Services (AHS) exercised lax controls in reimbursing 26,000 employees for spending during a 17-month span in 2011-12. “The fact that the control systems essentially have failed over that period have cost this huge amount of public resources,”
Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013 The province of Alberta released the most recent report from the Auditor General – which included dozens of recommendations meant for three different provincial departments. Auditor General Merwan Saher passed the 117 page report on to the provincial government in early February.The report included a total of 33 recommendations is meant to increase accountability for Alberta Health Services, the Office of the Public Trustee, and a number of post-secondary institutions. For AHS, Saher said the organization needs to place tighter controls on expenses, and guidelines for staff to follow when it comes to travel and living expenses. According to the report, AHS spent more than $100 million on travel and hospitality over 17-months.The report outlined a number of incidents where guidelines were not followed.In one case, an AHS staff member was found to have charged taxpayers for flying his own plane – without an explanation as to why the official couldn’t take a commercial flight, or how the rate charged for the private flight was competitive.In another case, one unnamed facility used taxi cabs to transport patients to their homes, some of the charges ended up totaling more than $300 – also, without an explanation. The only recommendation outlined in the report for AHS was for officials to tighten controls over expense claims, credit card transactions and other travel expenses by improving how charges are analyzed and documented, improve education and training of staff for compliance with expense policies and monitoring expenses and reporting results to the board.The rest of the recommendations, including those for the Office of the Public Trustee and for a number of Alberta post-secondary institutions, can be found online.

The Canadian citizens in 2011 have elected the federal government and the opposition party they wanted
Clearly the DISATISFACTION WITH THE PROVINCIAL LIBERALS ALSO IN QUEBEC, ONTARIO AND IN BC HAD HELPED BOTH THE CONSERVATIVES WHO WERE, ARE WILLING TO WIN AT ANY COSTS AND THE NDP
IT WAS ALSO NDP Jack Layton himself now also who had HELPED TO destroy the Bloc Québécois in Quebec AND WHO by splitting the vote with Liberals in Ontario, had also allowed the Conservatives to slip up the middle and win more seats in Central Canada to NOW be able to form a Conservative Majority government. And it was the VOTE anything but the BQ or the Conservatives voters plus NDP Jack Layton directly who had helped to turn Gilles Duceppe into the now removed Progressive Conservative party and the now gone Kim Campbell of the devastated BQ. It was also the NDP Jack Layton himself now who had helped to kick the federal Liberals into third place -the Liberal party’s worst election result ever.
With 99 per cent of polls reporting, the New Conservatives thus had won a majority government with 167 seats, for the first time followed by the NDP with 102 seats, the NDP is the new official oppostion party are also falsely known as the left leaning evil socialists, and the Liberals with 34 seats Canada wide, a great wipe out suffered their biggest historic defeat,
No conservatives were elected on the island of Montreal..
Conservatives often speak of having respect for law and order, an issue that resonates with all Canadians and crosses party lines. Why, then, did Mr. Harper choose to ignore the police report on the long-gun registry, which clearly describes the registry as a crucial weapon in fighting crime and gang violence?
Canada will face serious challenges in the years ahead. Like many Canadians, I’m convinced that Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party are not up to the job. My alternative endorsement echoes the now-famous one by Newfoundland and Labrador’s former premier, Danny Williams, during the last election: Anything But Conservative. Both Michael Ignatieff and Jack Layton have given us far more reason to believe they are trustworthy, honest leaders who have a grip on the reality Canadians face. ” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/anyone-but-harper-a-dissenting-endorsement/article2005395/

Majority of Canadians they just want all pricing to be fair — and Primus, Virgin, Bell, Rogers, Telus, Shaw and Videtron etc., so far have been anything but. The consumer abuses by Bell, Rogers, Virgin, Telus etc. they all should be an election issue.. Majority of Canadians they just want all pricing to be fair — and Bell, Rogers, Telus, Shaw and Videtron etc., so far have been anything but. Bell , Rogers, etc are, after all, mostly federally unregulated companies,.. and these bad big businesses get the corporate tax breaks from the Conservatives too.. they should rather pay a higher tax..
I have had the unfortunate task of too many times of being a personal security guard, a witness, a facilitator with senior patients while they were in the hospital,or in old age homes or with their doctors.. and what I have seen now is too often pretentious medicine, doctors and nurses now too doing as little as possible cause not only do they still get paid out of sight next is out of mind.. and cause the pain of others tends not to hurt the doctors.. I can say that the medical services drastically, exponentially improves when I do make I known that I do fully expose, and prosecute all bad medical services I do see. By the way I am realy tired of those pretend, incompetent doctors, the nurses who have such a basic rudimentary medical knowledge that it even tends to be useless, and they tend to go overboard with it as well…. so they too often have have become pretenders, imposters, fools.. Manage better now the health care system and all bad doctors and bad nurses need to go to a jail
And do see also
…… Let me be clear as to what I think about the too often no good RCMP and bad politicians as well.. they all do need to be fired, replaced, removed permanently ASAP..
… so now where are the good Ministers???????

All of the governments, Canada wide are to blame for perpetuating the health-care mess, our bad health care systems
Even the Alberta Health Services – the super board created in 2008 to run the province’s health-care system – gobbles up billions of dollars, funnels it through layers and layers of managers and administrators, and gives whatever little is left over to caring for patients.
Visit the Montreal West lakeshore General Hospital penthouse and see the life of luxury the Hospital’s administrators workers work in.
Alberta Health Services has finally DECADES TOO LATE TOO upped the number of surgeries performed in the province so the announcement made still only represents a roughly two per cent bump. A drop in the bucket. “ I wonder if Jack Davis, former chair of the now defunct Calgary health region has to “wait’ for his $250,000 per year pension cheque, all for 6 years of dismal and sub-par performance on behalf of the region. Probably not. Stelmach just doesn’t get it,yes people are upset by the state of Alberta’s health care system, however what is upsetting them even more is the continued and seemingly ever continuing mishandling of the problem. ”The new procedures conducted throughout Alberta will include cancer, heart, knee and cataract surgeries. THE REST OF THE PROVINCES IN CANADA SHOULD ALSO FOLLOW THESE BASICS. Always make sure patients are funded first. Former premier Ralph Klein, after leaving office, admitted his biggest regret during his 14 years as premier was caving to the special interest groups and letting them derail his plans to reform health care. “ “Now convince me that you’re REALLY trying to provide services instead of merely responding to public pressure before another election. “ “ Its absolutely incredible the “new promises” that elected officials can make when in front of the firing squad with their jobs on the line and the sweat just pouring off their eyebrows…….ISN’T IT “ “ The problem here is that most of the 5,000 surgeries have already been announced. “The worst part of all of this is that they think Albertan’s are honestly this dense. It’s great that they think they can buy us off with pocket change ($16.7 Million) while making their friends rich with unproven Carbon Capture money ($2 Billion), friends are hard to come buy, peasants are a dime a dozen.”
When Premier Ed Stelmach also now says “there is no crisis in health care” — his legislature mantra last week — he’s speaking against the direct experience of thousands of Albertans. http://www.calgaryherald.com/news/phoney+news+becomes+good+news/3950143/story.html
All C. difficile outbreaks and related deaths at all hopsitals must be immediately reported…
C. difficile breaks out at B.C. hospital. A previous C. difficile outbreak at the hospital ended last summer, involving a total of 49 hospital acquired cases.In two of those cases, C. difficile was attributed to the death of the patient and in another two cases C. difficile was a contributing factor. All patients had underlying conditions. Housekeeping was a factor in the previous outbreak, but Marshall explained that the current situation has been attributed to a hand hygiene issue.Read more: http://news.nationalpost.com/2011/01/03/b-c-hospital-declares-c-difficile-outbreak/#ixzz1A31azxi7

EDMONTON — The Alberta government has passed new legislation designed to reduce the number of complaints against police officers. The changes, which include new restrictions on who can launch a complaint, more powers to dismiss frivolous complaints and provisions to shorten appeals, are Unacceptable.
“The Criminal Trial Lawyers’ Association is particularly upset by a change that will stop “third parties” from making complaints. Only people directly affected by an officer’s behaviour, their loved ones or witnesses would be allowed to make submissions under the proposed rules. Association member Tom Engel, who has been an outspoken critic of the Edmonton Police Service in recent years, says the rule change will make it virtually impossible for his organization to pursue complaints against misbehaving officers on behalf of people unable or unwilling to step forward on their own. He gave the example of the case of homeless people who were picked up in a police van on Whyte Avenue and dropped off in the north end of the city.
Another contentious part of the legislation says that in cases involving “non-serious” incidents, the police chief’s decision will be considered final. Currently, such decisions can be appealed to the Law Enforcement Review Board. Taking away that appeal avenue is unfair to both complainants and officers and will allow chiefs to keep case details under wraps simply by declaring a case minor, Engel said.
Other proposed changes include:
— Provisions to allow the review board to get through appeals faster, including holding fewer trial-like oral hearings;
— Greater powers for cases to be dismissed when the complainant declines to participate in hearings or misbehaves; and
— Allowing alternative dispute resolutions in appropriate cases; and
— Giving some complainants a longer timeline to make their submission.
The new legislation falls short of the Edmonton Police Association’s call for all police complaints to be handled by a civilian oversight body. “
You know I get a kick out of those lying spin doctors, police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers, bad PERSONS who STILL DO say that ALL OF bad people, INCLUDING the ALCOHOLICS, the bad cops and their bad supervisors too they can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. The RCMP maximum 10 days punishment is always absurd, permanent dismissal is what is always needed with the bad cops and their clearly bad superiors who had managed and hired them too.. Bad solicitor generals and bad Justice Ministers, bad Premiers, bad Prime Ministers as well should all be fired ASAP.
