Poor people and the unemploynment rate in Alberta

 What happened in Alberta is no surprise to the honest, decent folks. Socialists elected in Canada’s oil patch.    A study says shrinking budgets in the oil and gas industry could lead to as many as 185,000 direct and indirect job losses this year in Canada.  In the one horse province  Alberta would be the hardest hit .  Loonie plunges as oil’s slide continues; One-in-four oil, gas jobs could be lost in 2015 but for decades the Politicians did not plan ahead for the rainy days..  Bleak numbers showing that Canada’s economy shrank in the first three months of 2015 have already created a torrent of downgraded economic projections on how the rest of the year will unfold.

Alberta unemployment rate highest in 14 years CBC – Sat Apr 10, 7:03 PM EDMONTON (CBC) – Alberta’s unemployment rate ( falsely adjusted too – it is a lot higher now for the true rate would have  included all people out of work, those who had as a result left the province, and those persons now on social aid too) rose to 7.5 per cent in March, the highest level since 1996, according to figures released Friday by Statistics Canada.The rate climbed 0.6 percentage points from February. The federal agency attributed the increase to a higher number of people entering the work force an increase of 9,700 in Alberta. “The main reason for what we’re seeing is the fact that we are still not fully recovered from recession,” said Thomas Lukaszuk, Alberta’s minister of employment and immigration.

Booze, gambling revenues now worth more than gas royalties to Stelmach government  http://ourcanadiancontent.wordpress.com/2010/08/27/booze-gambling-revenues-now-worth-more-than-gas-royalties-to-stelmach-government   PM Stephen Harper’s province…

System failing city’s poor, critics say The Ottawa Sun – Sat Apr 10, 9:04 PM  For those fighting poverty in the city, the outlook is bleak.  Fractured families, unemployment, minimum-wage jobs and a tide of immigrants lacking language skills threaten to further inflate the already staggering numbers of people wrestling with the question of whether to buy food or pay rent. Single parents  83% of them women  now lead one in every four families in Ottawa. Because they rely on a single income, these families tend to earn the least and experience higher levels of poverty than two-parent families. Worse, many working women with children have jobs that are precarious, with irregular or part-time hours, lower wages and limited benefits. A recent report from the Social Planning Council of Ottawa illustrates a disturbing trend. Households and Families in Ottawa — which is based on 2006 census data  warns of increasing child poverty and immigrant unemployment that could continue for generations to come. In 2006, 32,853 children under 18 in Ottawa lived below the poverty line.  “That was in 2006 and before the recent economic crisis hit,” said poverty council research director Clara Jimeno. “And immigrant women with children younger than six had an unemployment rate of 30% before the recession as well.”  The Overbrook-Forbes Community Resource Centre is one of the organizations that stands on the front lines in the war on poverty, with 14 branches servicing low-income communities across the city. Anti-poverty community co-ordinator Dominique Paris-MacKay said the situation has become dire.  “The gap between the rich and poor is growing, and that’s because the poor are getting poorer. Food banks don’t have enough food and the fact we have them at all is a failure of our system.”
These 2 items were, are related
Alberta and it’s past premier were  known for it’s despisements  of all of the  poor people, those persons on social aid.. so it is not surprisingly they have to also now next walk in the footstep of the poor so next time that can manifest now more real, valid  compassion
 
The rest of Canada would take heed to this too less they also experience the same thing.. “Poverty is not a choice that people make and it can happen to anybody. One economic downturn can turn someone who was stable to someone who’s homeless.”

Good news the oppressive bad cops in Alberta are  likely to face more lay offs.. Imagine this job creation absurdity, one third of the annual Calgary city hall budget is used to support the police services.. fire 85 percent of them for they are too often slackers, pretenders anyway

(Rom 12:3 KJV)  For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

(Prov 20:26 KJV)  A wise king scattereth the wicked, and bringeth the wheel over them.
 
(Prov 28:15 KJV)  As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.
 
The popularity of Robin Hood even centuries later personifies some great simple truths about what bad rulers do and do not do.. at both the federal and provincial levels. A good ruler runs the wheel over the wicked persons, even bad cops, those who abuse their offices, who live high on the hog too,  but also does  care  about the welfare of all the persons, the poor included.. Interesting that not only the Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper but now also the Liberal premier of three Provinces BC, Quebec and Ontario, and the Conservative Premier of Alberta  clearly are unpopular these days with the citizens cause they fall short in this areas
 
(Job 15:31 KJV)  Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompense.

Cambridge Mayor interest is Collecting more taxes

 

Mayor is interesting in Collecting more taxes and not does not care about the  seniors..

City of Cambridge’s Attack upon Seniors The Mayor, and the City of Cambridge, do not want the poor and the elderly living in secondary housing units, such as basement apartments and granny suites.  He fails to recognize the dire need for such accommodations, especially during this recession, when many families are losing their homes due to job losses, and seniors are on low fixed incomes.     As a senior citizen couple who reside in our own home “in a granny suite”, my wife and I have been told that the stove in our kitchen must be removed.  I visited this mayor face to face in a meeting on April 2/09, and that is what he told me.  Our home is occupied only by blood relatives, my wife and I, and my adult son and his young family.  The fact we are blood relatives means nothing to this mayor, he classifies my wife and I as “illegal tenants”.     We will be forced to cook our meals on the back yard barbecue for the summer, and god help us during next winter.   A Supreme Court ruling on the acceptance of secondary housing units was presented to this mayor, but it means nothing to him.  Many older people from our church, that live in basement or granny suites, in the homes of their adult children, are living in fear that they might be forced to leave their families, if they are caught by the City of Cambridge Enforcement Gestapo.     Aging parents find great comfort and feel secure living in the homes of their adult children.  Their children can provide them with day to day guidance, and it removes the fear of having to enter a nursing home in the future.  Even the daily involvement with the grandchildren results in better mental and physical health for aging grandparents that live with their families, independently, and in a granny suite type of living quarters.  Anyone who objects to this mistreatment of low income earners and elderly people, who desperately need this type of housing accommodation, is encouraged to contact the mayor, and let him know how you feel.  http://caledoniawakeupcall.com/cambridge/Cambridge.html

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

OTTAWA – Ottawa-area hospitals are seeing a growing number of sick people   linked to the Norovirus, a highly contagious stomach bug, mostly related to food poisonings, which causes nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramps, and people can carry the virus before they develop symptoms and it can be passed easily to vulnerable Hospital patients. Closing a ward that is affected by the related diarrhea and vomiting is essential to limit the spread of the infection. The hospital-based patients with the symptoms are placed  in isolation, as are  the affected staff, as there is no specific treatment for the infection, so isolation is the only way to prevent it spreading. “Staff affected by diarrhea and vomiting will only return to work once they have been symptom-free for 48 hours. ” The basic only way to prevent it spreading is also to limit the number of people who come into contact with those who have been effected. Additional people who are sick are advised to stay home and avoid visiting crowded places such as schools, hospitals, daycare centres and nursing homes until at least 48 hours after their nausea or vomiting has passed. Hospital visitors are to make sure they wash their hands before and after visiting to prevent it from further spreading .  People have also been advised to avoid bringing young children to the hospital. My personal inspection of a local Montreal hospital  was that too many of the hand wash dispensers available  are empty and are not being refilled ASAP.

Doctors, Nurses, medical support staff  are human, they too sometimes try sometimes to get by with a minimal amount of personal effort, and so as result patients do not always get their proper medical care. A very good rule is never to go to a hospital alone, doctors are  afraid of loud mouthed witnesses who can cause them to be sued for mal  practice and cause their mal practice insurance rates to go up significantly.. so sick people with close family members who talk to the doctor tend to get better care. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/11/hospital-deaths-account-for-half-of-deaths-annually/

The pretentious hospital chaplains.. While visiting my father in the hospital In one week I next  saw three fly by church Priests come to visits the sick patients in the hospitals, and they  spend a minute or two with them,  and they really, basically did not much good to any of the patients they had visited. One of these clearly visibly useless  priests visiting a sick patient did not even recognize another member of his own congregation in the same room, and of course he did not even know his name. How the church has become an impersonalized show, merely a financial business it seems today.    Now the Doctors are still often asked to cure sick person  patients symptoms  whose original cause they are basically unaware off. A decent, good, chaplain can maybe help in this matter by first even  taking the time to know, listen, hear the patient’s original concerns. 

A very elderly patient  arrived in the Hospital emergency, his first visit to a hospital as well, he now could not walk on one leg cause of the extremely severe pain and so he was hospitalized. While in the hospital he next was visited by 5 different doctors and he now was even given separately 5 different diagnostics as to  what he may have. This is common I have experienced  the same thing myself before too. Doctors tend to relate mainly to heir own experience,  expertise it seems mostly still and  so basically no doctor had told him what they would do next, they decided safely  they would let time and more reviews take it’s course. This all had seemed to have escalated the patient’s pains and concerns.  Next the same patient now developed severe constipation, headaches, even more pain ,dehydration, severe leg cramps  from now lying in a bed all of the week.  I next had listened and talked to the patient for a few days,  and I told him I could see he was also in  stress, personal anxiety.  The patient  next  had admitted that he was in stress when he had been first unable to walk, because at Christmas time unexpectedly his wife was sent to an convalescent home as she had developed the irreversible Alzheimer disease, and now he had next never been alone and  he never had cooked for himself before this. Now he also as a RESULT OF HIS LEG  PAIN he faced himself an uncertain future, possible operation, and transfer to an old age home or convalescent home. After much listening I told him he had now firstly had likely hurt, strained  his back, due to his wife’s unbeneficial stress, which in turn now now affected his leg.  I FIRST HAD SUGGESTED HE TALK WITH HIS DOCTOR AND GET A BACK PAIN MUSCLE RELAXANT TOO  but NEXT  naturally he refused to believe me. I ALSO NEXT HAD suggested he try out a chiropractor  but  he never had gone to one before. I told him the medical doctors approach would achieve the same results but IT would likely take much longer time using pills. But now even none of the hospital pain killers were now even  helping him at all including morphine because the root causes are not being addressed. Few doctors or nurses will tell a patient directly that t  his sickness is in his own  head, or his own doing now too.  The patient  next called his son  by phone, and his son next had agreed to take him in, after he was released from the hospital. His son next also had agreed with me,  that  the father should next go to a chiropractor doctor, that his problem was likely escalated by the unexpected stress he found himself in.

the rich man’s social club

                 
                
  
I was sitting in one of the biggest,
most established evangelical churches in Canada
for the first time..

and surprisingly next I heard Jesus say to me,

” Paul what are you doing here?”

shocked I said in reply” I am worshipping in your house?”

 and Jesus replied to me and said

” but these are the rich who persecute the poor people

so I ask you again what are you doing here?:

Embarrassed I shortly next left

and never came back to this bad church.

yet the people in that church were proud of their church,

their accomplishments..

 it too was rather a rich man’s social club

and not a real church..

  

AND IT WAS in the Calgary First Christian Missionary Alliance Church, Stephen’s Harper’s church too 

 

In reality Genuine Born Again, Evangelical, Christians are total abstainers from smoking, drugs, alcohol, cheating, lying, stealing, tax evasions, pornography, or rather all personal vices, Impairments, gay sex now too.  
 
 Clearly ** The Bible teaches against drinking alcoholic beverages.
 
The liars and the demons  of course will say other wise.

 

drunkenness behavior is unacceptable for any professing, Christian, evangelical persons

 Many conservative pundits today are trying desperately to warn their fellow Americans that Barack Obama has been linked to various far-left organizations, but it still is in reality it is really unfair to the Bible, Christianity, to try to link all socialists as communists, unbiblical. For unlike most evangelicals these days and their churches denominations who wrongfully do not care about any of the others, only themselves it seems,  Jesus, the Apostles, Apostle James included, and deacons care about both the good physical and spiritual welfare of the flock, of all persons, the poor and needy, the sick  persons too.. they were Both conservatives and liberal- socialist sas well.. not  basically Republicans. Judas was clearly the sole  Republican..
