Police working hard to keep up their reputation as bad guys

Officer fired after being charged The Province – A Vancouver police officer was fired within hours of being arrested and charged with four criminal offences, including drug dealing while on the job, said Chief Const.    Chu said Peter Hodson was arrested at police headquarters Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. and “charged with trafficking in marijuana, two counts of breach of trust, one for selling drugs and the other for the illegal use of a police database. In addition, he was charged with break-and-enter with the intent to commit extortion.” Chu noted that Hodson was arrested and charged with impaired driving as well as driving with a blood-alcohol level exceeding 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood while off duty in November. Those charges are still before the court.

and how many more are there now still like him too Canada wide?
 

Why do the police not prosecute the drunk drivers all year more consistently now too? “Of the 645 sexual assaults that were reported to our service in 2009, more than 40 per cent were alcohol-facilitated sexual assaults,” A sexual assault is never the fault of the victim. She said no means no the first time, and another drink can’t change that.“ We need people to understand that consent cannot be given if the person is impaired by alcohol: If they’re passed out, if they’re unconscious, if they’re sleeping,”  Supt. Danielle Campbell,   head of the Edmonton Police Criminal Investigations Division. It seems most alcohol-facilitated sexual assault doesn’t seem to be about miscommunication, or misconceptions of consent.  Rather, it is about men who use alcohol to incapacitate women for the purpose of raping them, and who do it over and over again like they know what they ‘re doing and are doing it on purpose. Do even the police do the same thing as well?

UNPROPORTIONAL PRISON REPRESENTATION

7government_of_canada_logo

OTTAWA — Aboriginal inmates in Canada make up too high a percentage of Canada’s prison population and tend to get harsher sentences and less programming, a report from the country’s prison watchdog said Friday. 

   

 Prison watchdog sounds alarm over state of native prisoners OTTAWA – Canada’s prison watchdog is sounding the alarm over the plight of aboriginal prisoners, warning that without urgent action the situation will soon become a crisis. Howard Sapers, the correctional investigator of Canada, released a progress report Friday on aboriginals in the federal corrections system. It states bluntly that the federal government has failed to live up to many of its commitments on improving the system.  The report says in 2008, 19.6 per cent of federal inmates were aboriginal, although they make up just four per cent of the Canadian adult population. That number grew by nearly 20 per cent over the previous decade.The number of aboriginal women in jail soared an alarming 131 per cent in that decade, and one in three women now in federal prisons in Canada is aboriginal.

Sapers’ office only has jurisdiction for federal prisons. More than 70 per cent of inmates in Manitoba are in provincial facilities. Statistics Canada reports 66 per cent of Manitoba inmates on remand and 69 per cent in sentenced custody are aboriginal.The OCI report also notes aboriginal offenders are less likely than non-aboriginal offenders to be granted parole, more likely to be in segregation, more likely to have been in prison before, are classified as higher risk and are more likely to reoffend after they are released.

The statistics, says the report, are a sign of the corrections’ service failure to ensure aboriginal prisoners are getting the help they need.

“Today my message is clear – given the urgency of the situation, I call upon the service to do the right thing and immediately appoint a deputy commissioner for aboriginal corrections,” Sapers said in a statement

Aboriginals are severely overrepresented in federal jails: they account for 17.3 per cent of inmates but make up only four per cent of the Canadian adult population Predictions are that the numbers will go on as they have over the past decade – 131 per cent in the case of aboriginal women.

“Previous attempts to reduce the gap in outcomes between aboriginal and non-aboriginal offenders have largely failed,” wrote Michelle Mann, the independent researcher who prepared the report.

Given the young and growing aboriginal population, a … failure to be forward thinking and expeditiously mobilize good intentions in aboriginal corrections will reverberate throughout the youth and criminal justice system, aboriginal communities and Canadian society for years to come.”

The report comes at a time when the Conservatives are tightening sentencing and parole laws, acknowledging that incarceration rates will rise.

NDP Public Safety critic Don Davies called the report an indictment of the Conservative approach.

“I’d rather that they get tough on results for a change, instead of bringing in bills that are all for show, when actual concrete measures that are needed to improve recidivism … are not taken,” she said.
The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) developed a five-year strategic plan for aboriginal corrections in 2006

Some of the reports findings on that and other plans include:

-The government has not provided adequate funding to roll out its various initiatives for aboriginals. Only two per cent of the annual budget goes to programming, although new measures continue to be created.
-Programs are not universally available to aboriginals. Prisoners who transfer from one institution to another are not guaranteed the ability to complete their programs, sometimes resulting in delayed parole. “These initiatives are often localized and not rolled out on a consistent national basis and therefore had limited impact on narrowing the gap in correctional outcomes between aboriginal and other offenders.”
-There is not enough accountability within the CSC to determine whether initiatives are working or being implemented properly.
-Aboriginals continue to be overclassified in jails, more often going to maximum security prisons than non-aboriginals.
-There is a shortage of aboriginal resources offered to people upon their release from prison.

Jeannette Corbiere Lavell, president of the Native Women’s Association of Canada, urged the government to act on the new report.
We, as a society, are responsible for the future of our children and we must give them opportunities to make good choices for positive life outcomes,” she said.
This starts at the beginning of life, not through punishment in the justice system.”

A GOOD START WOULD BE TO GIVE the POLICE MORE TRAINING IN HOW TO SPOT AND FIND WHITE CRIMINALS AS WELL. We all know that they all can start rightfully with their fellow RCMP officers who are already clearly guilty of perjury to the courts, drunk driving, etc.,

Too often racists, indian Haters   “Conservative government’s tough-on-crime agenda with mandatory sentences will only mean even more aboriginals spend more time in jail. “When your only focus is on punishment, you deliberately ignore the social conditions of aboriginal people,”   “More jail cells just means bigger con colleges.

Tories prison legislation will cost billions Global BC  OTTAWA – The Harper government’s prison-sentencing laws will cost Canadians billions of dollars, including an estimated $2 billion for one piece of legislation alone, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews acknowledged Wednesday. Toews, releasing cost estimates for the first time, said the government has a good idea of the overall cost of its aggressive law-and-order agenda, but it does not want to publicly release the numbers. Toews held a media availability to dispute figures contained in a report, to be released next week by the independent parliamentary budget officer, which is expected to peg the cost of one single bill, which came into effect earlier this year, at as much as $10 billion over five years. The controversial piece of legislation would eliminate so-called two-for-one credits, in which offenders are given sentencing reductions to compensate for time they spent in difficult pre-sentencing custody. It is one of several pieces of legislation designed to put more people in prison and keep them there longer. Liberal public safety Mark Holland asked Page to look at the costs of the government’s sentencing bills, but the office focused on the two-for-one credit. Other Conservative promises include imposing mandatory incarceration for drug-related crimes and ending automatic statutory release after serving two-thirds of a sentence. Toews said the government is willing to pay whatever it costs. His $2-billion estimate for the elimination of the two-for-one credit is a five-year prediction, he said. He added that the government has no immediate plans to build new prisons, but will renovate existing ones and rely more on double-bunking prisoners.

Pleasing  the crowd, thinking positive, spin doctoring,  political correctness is a common writer’s demon that tries the patience of the best of us and  the epitome of the writer’s dishonesty. 
 
Like all the teachers now have to do it seems I continually do have to remind our politicians  and news media what is acceptable, and unacceptable still.. and even what the truth now  is too!
 
 
 This isn’t News article, it’s a false brain washing press release, or a commercial propaganda, which seems to apply to too many of of the daily news stories I encounter.. and the governmental handouts too now.

The journalistic positive spins example..

BCE Inc., Bell Canada Enterprises Inc. on Thursday said lower restructuring costs pushed its main Bell unit to report a 26 per cent rise in operating income last quarter, but warned that a slowdown in the business market and a continued Canadian weak economy will keep revenues at the lower end of expectations into the fourth quarter of 2009.  The company was in the process of cutting jobs and streamlining its divisions. Canada’s largest phone company, reported third-quarter profit  as customers spent a third more to send e-mail messages and surf the Internet from their handsets.  Net income rose to C$558 million ($532 million), or 72 cents a share, from C$248 million, or 31 cents, a year earlier. All because the CRTC helps Bell to suppress competition, decent consumer pricing..  BCE began offering Apple Inc.’s iPhone in Canada last week through its Bell Mobility wireless unit, breaking the monopoly held by Rogers Communications Inc. Bell, which introduced Palm Inc.’s Pre phone nationwide in August, is now using both devices to force consumers to spend more on data after the economic slowdown forced cutbacks in long-distance calling. BCE rose 5 cents to C$27.14 at 4:10 p.m. in Toronto Stock Exchange trading.  Third-quarter revenue increased 0.5 percent to C$4.46 billion. The company said Bell’s revenues from operation increased 1.2% in the quarter to $3.79-billion, but the growth was largely fuelled by the acquisition of The Source stores and the remaining 50% of the equity of Virgin Mobile Canada. Bell said it added 135,000 wireless subscribers and that average monthly revenue per user was C$52.13 in the quarter. Bell TV revenues were also up 10.2 per cent, The company also reported growth in video revenues which offset the natural declines in local, long-distance and wireline data revenues. Bell can never make enough money nor adfully please all of the customers..  

  
 
Chief Executive Officer George Cope is putting the savings from about 5,000 job cuts, or 11 percent of the company’s workforce, since June 2008 into marketing and subsidizing  new smart phones. The company also had eliminated 1,100 jobs in the third quarter.  BCE has thus cut about 6,200 people. Bell   recognizes that the slowdown in the business market and a weak Canadian economy will keep revenues at the lower end of expectations into Q4 2009. Average monthly revenue per customer decreased to about $64, down $3.98, as subscribers switched to lower monthly rate plans, used their phones less and lower roaming revenues, customers on average were spending less than a year ago due to the weaker economy, negative price gougings, also there was no intent  of Bell eliminating 911 or service activation fees,

  

THE REAL UNDENIABLE FACT THAT BELL HAD TOO MANY INCOMPETENT, NO GOOD, USELESS, IMMORAL EMPLOYEES AS I FOUND OUT OFTEN WAS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS BELL  WAS NOW SO COSTLY TO OPERATE TOO. THE CANADIAN CITIZEN’S TELECOMMUNICATIONS COSTS ARE AMONGST THE HIGHEST IN THE WHOLE EARTH. PASSING ON THE PRICE TO ANY CUSTOMERS BY UNREALISTICALLY  EXPECTING THEM TO PAY HIGHER COSTS IS A POOR, VERY  UNREALISTIC  MANAGEMENT ON BELL’S PART STILL.

 

 

Telus Communications Inc. (T-T33.500.200.60%) launches legal action against Rogers Communications Inc. (RCI.B-T33.00-0.14-0.42%) for allegedly misleading ads claiming Rogers provides “Canada’s fastest network.”  In documents filed in B.C. supreme court, Telus says that since a Nov. 5 upgrade, a network run by Bell (BCE-T27.640.431.58%) and Telus offers faster and more reliable service than the Rogers network.  Telus says Rogers advertisements introduced in 2007 and continuing after Nov. 5 that claim Rogers provides “Canada’s fastest network: two times faster than any other,” are now false and misleading.  Telus also claims similar advertisements that Rogers provides “Canada’s most reliable network,” have also been false since Telus’ upgrade.  Telus is seeking a declaration from Rogers that its advertisements breached Canada’s Competition Act, in addition to injunction from distributing the ads, damages and compensation. Canada’s wireless telecommunications industry, in which Telus, Bell and Rogers control about 90 per cent of the market, is set to become more competitive as Telus and Bell introduce Apple’s coveted iPhone, which Rogers has offered for more than a year.  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/globe-investor/telus-sues-rogers-over-ad-claims/article1368486/

False misleading advertising has long time been made by Telus, Rogers, Bell and others in Canada whole the Ostrich federal consumer dperantmt, government did nothing.. I even wrote to you about THIS ISSUE  too and what it takes the courts to deal with everything now, AND so why do we need the  government ?

BC home inspector ruled ‘negligent,’ must pay nearly $200,000 to buyers  VANCOUVER, B.C. – A home inspector has been ordered to pay nearly $200,000 to a North Vancouver couple who were told the house they wanted to buy only needed basic repairs. A   B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled Imre Toth was “negligent” and provided “woefully inadequate” estimates after his inspection of the house in September 2006. Toth’s report estimated house repairs would only cost about $20,000, when in fact they totalled more than 10 times the amount at $200,000.  The judge found the buyers wouldn’t have purchased the $1 million home had they been made aware of the extensive rotting beams and other structural problems.

QUEBEC – The outgoing leader of the Action democratique du Quebec blames the federal Tories for helping to destroy his party. In a scathing open letter, Gilles Taillon says his decision to sever ties with the federal Conservatives prompted a harsh response. Taillon says he met with Conservative Sen. Leo Housakos, a key player in both federal and provincial politics, and that he told him the tiny ADQ would be cutting ties with the Tories. Taillon suggests that meeting prompted a putsch, in which the Tories and former ADQ leader Mario Dumont orchestrated his ouster. Members of Taillon’s caucus began abandoning the party until, just 23 days into his leadership, he agreed to quit. The embattled ADQ leader writes that his leadership was undermined when he tried to end that “untouchable alliance” with the Tories. He also says he’s found troubling financial irregularities in the party’s books that he plans to report to police.

For all kind of detail examples, reasons, explanations Canadian Senator Mike Duffy is a TREMENDOUS example, illustration  of the wrong type of managerial DECISIONS Stephen Harper OFTEN MAKES:
 
Duffy P.E.I.’s most expensive senator. during his first three months in the red chamber, Conservative Senator Mike Duffy racked up more than $100,848 in travel and office expenses, more than double the average of what the other three Island senators spend in a typical quarter. Duffy’s rate of spending puts him in the top rank of senatorial expenses. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/prince-edward-island/story/2009/11/11/pei-senator-duffy-expenses-584.html
OTTAWA GANSTERS
 
I REALLY LOVE THE READERS COMMENTS AT THE SAME SITE NOW TOO.. COMMENTS LIKE..
 
Mike Duffy is a mercenary hack.
His sheer audacity in comparing himself to an elected MP is breathtaking.
Two days ago Mr. Duffy loudly told us that Mr. Stoffer’s criticisms were the ramblings of a “faker”.
But yesterday he wasn’t returning calls…..
It doesn’t matter, of course.
Mr. Duffy is there representing ‘us’ until he is 75.
Whether we like it or not.
A thousand thank-you’s, Mr. Harper.
How can we possibly repay your kindness……..?
 
I expected better of Mike Duffy, but I guess winning the lottery, I mean being appointed to senate, changes you.
 
Mike Duffy is a total embarrassment. His earlier crude comments on the fitness of P.E.I.’s premier revealed the attack dog he is. It is totally in character for him to smear Peter Stoffer, one of the most respected M.P. s, a man of obvious integrity. Read Don Martin’s recent column on Mr Duffy in the National Post (also carried in the Guardian). Maybe Duffy has a mission from our P.M., but whatever his reasons, he is a partisan political hack, and I resent his role of representing P.E.I. Harper should remove him for his own protection.
 
Duffy thank you for opening my eyes to Harpers wish to abolish the senate. Your such a fake and a sad sad senator.
 
As far as I am concerned the Senate is not the problem because one way or another we need an Upper Chamber to balance the Commons. The problem is its structure and how it is politically manipulated by Prime Ministers without the consent of the Canadian electorate.   Mr Duffy’s nomination is crass for two reasons:  first this Prime Minister made all kinds of promises and flip flopped on all of them and second as a journalist Mr Duffy was supposed to be non partisan so all those years he was pretending to analyze the political scene with an open mind it turns out this was a fake – including his opinion of the Senate before being named a Senator.
 
Duffy thinks he is entitled to whatever he can get, believes he is smarter, better educated, more important and of higher class then the rest of us.  By calling Stoffer a faker and saying he doesn’t care about the military, Duffy proved he will say anything at all, lies, fabrications etc, as long as it is in an attempt to help his good buddy Harper. How can anyone who has spent more then 10 minutes covering Stoffer question his loyalty to Military families.   Duffy is taking taxpayer money, using it to insult ALL NON Con/reformers, and spending big money on food and travel   what a joke, be a man Duffy and resign…mind you a MAN isn’t something you will ever be accused of being, because you aren’t  kids starve, doughty spends hundreds of thousands on foods and flights
 
Whether one believes the Senate should be abolished, reformed or maintained as is, it is incumbent upon those who are appointed to conduct themselves with dignity, professionalism and honour. Mr. Duffy has been, since day one of his appointment, an embarrassment and has no place in this Senate or any other version which may replace it some day.   Not a good choice Mr. Harper

Alleged CONSERVATIVE mis-spending and influence-peddling

  Conservative CANADIAN GOVERNMENT

NDP MP Olivia Chow and lawyer Brian Iled ARE  seeking federal investigations into alleged mis-spending and influence-peddling by its Conservative Party loyalists.  If true, recent published allegations reveal “a shocking disregard for the public interest and normal rules of governance on the part of Stephen Harper’s appointees to the TPA board,” Iled told reporters in his law office.  Instead of rousting members who were accused by former colleagues of undefendable expenses and accomodating unacceptable party lobbying, he said the PM’s people “shot the messengers, replaced them with more loyal Conservatives and ignored the whistleblowers.”  Iled, head of Community Air, a group devoted to grounding the TPA-run Toronto City Centre Airport, said the Authority “has become a playpen for Stephen Harper’s political appointees with their own agenda and no accountability for their actions.”  He and Chow called for a return to mainly city appointees — similar to those who ran the old Toronto Harbour Commission — until the government restructured ports in 1999.  NO ‘SIGNIFICANCE’  Costing taxpayers $10 million a year, they said Toronto’s port authority status can’t be justified as having “strategic significance to Canada’s trade.”  Chow said she was mostly stonewalled after earlier seeking disclosure of expenses, including “outrageous entertainment and travel,” such as steak dinners at a leased restaurant in its Harbour and Bay Sts. headquarters and “lavish lunches” by ex-president and CEO Lisa Raitt, now minister of natural resources.  Chow and Iled have targeted such spending at previous press conferences.
 
 
‘BLATANT’ INTERFERENCE  In September, she blasted John Baird for “blatant” political interference after the transport minister appointed two new TPA members to replace two who criticized board practices.  Chow yesterday called one new member “another Conservative fundraiser,” with no experience in Toronto waterfront issues.  After a newspaper published leaked documents and last week reported altered versions of TPA board minutes, the Authority issued a statement saying the articles contained “many inaccuracies and falsehoods.”  

OTTAWA-Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his government have been using taxpayer-funding announcements to boost the fortunes of unelected Conservative candidates, critics charge.  While Conservative allies and would-be MPs are welcome at public announcements to splash taxpayers’ money around Canada, opposition MPs say they’ve been pushed to the sidelines and even left in the dark about funding announcements taking place in their ridings.  Some New Democrat and Liberal MPs say they have only learned about funds going to their ridings when they looked in the local paper after the fact and saw unelected Conservative candidates prominently featured at government-financed events.  Liberals believe that if Elections Canada looks into the practice, Conservatives could be held in violation of strict laws intended to keep partisan and government spending separate.  “This is one more example of abusing government resources to benefit the Conservative party,” says Liberal MP Martha Hall Findlay (Willowdale), who is in the midst of filing multiple official complaints to the Treasury Board and Elections Canada over the government’s advertising and promotional practices. “This is another attempt to buy Canadians with their own, taxpayer money,” she said.  This fall, Moncton Liberal MP Brian Murphy was barred from entry to an announcement by the Prime Minister at the Irving shipyards in New Brunswick.  Hall Findlay says of the Conservatives: “These guys just don’t seem to get it. It’s not their money.”  Andrew MacDougall, a spokesman for the Prime Minister’s Office, said the government “makes Economic Action Plan announcements with our provincial and municipal partners.” In Edmonton-Strathcona, the only Alberta riding the Conservatives do not hold, local Tory candidate Ryan Hastman has participated in at least five government announcements over the past few months, while the local NDP MP, Linda Duncan, says she has been excluded from all of them. Hastman boasts of his participation in pictures on his Facebook page.  Duncan, who calls the “whole process offensive,” says it becomes doubly irritating when a Conservative candidate claims credit for funds she helped to get for the community, as the duly elected MP.  “What I find reprehensible about all this is that they just can’t seem to accept the fact that Edmonton-Strathcona voters elected me, not a Conservative,” Duncan said.  Hastman was on hand, posing for pictures with Labour Minister Rona Ambrose, when the Conservatives gave a $14.8 million cheque to the GO community sports centre in Edmonton in September, for example.  Duncan had worked with the centre to get the application into the government before the deadline elapsed earlier in the year – and says she only found out about that deadline because someone accidentally sent her an email directed to the Alberta Conservative caucus.  The same thing happened recently in the riding of Welland, Ont., held by New Democrat MP Malcolm Allen. When the Prime Minister stopped in to announce federal stimulus money going to Niagara College last month – which came with a provincial contribution as well – there was pointedly no mention of either Allen or the provincial MPP, Peter Kormos, who is also a New Democrat.  “It’s kind of disappointing,” said Allen. “It’s the taxpayers’ money.”  The local Conservative candidate, Leanna Villella, was apparently involved in the event and the organization of it, as she explained in a blog entry.  “After the press conference, we headed over to the local restaurant M.T. Bellies where I got the chance to sit and talk with the Prime Minister, Minister of Justice Rob Nicholson, and (St. Catharines) Member of Parliament Rick Dykstra. Together we discussed the challenges facing our riding, and also got the chance to outline the possible solutions,” she wrote.  “I would like to thank the members of my campaign team who worked so hard all week to make sure that this event ran smoothly.” It is not clear from Villella’s blog entry whether this visit to the riding was financed by the federal government or the Conservative party, since the event appeared to be part official, part political business for the Prime Minister.  But MacDougall, the PMO spokesman, said that at the Niagara event, “the mayor of Welland, Damian Goulbourne, regional chair Peter Partington, Liberal provincial cabinet Minister Jim Bradley, and the president of Niagara College all participated in the announcement in question.  “The local New Democrat MP, Mr. Allen, voted against the EAP and its investment in Niagara College,” MacDougall added. “However, just like other community leaders, he could have attended the event.”  http://www.torontosun.com/news/torontoandgta/2009/11/09/11680766-sun.html

Exemplary, rather you mostly still do mean the wrong type of example.. All of our leaders were to set examples not merely to farcically, hypocritically prosecute  all the other wrong doers.. It seems we are too often still hearing that too many our civil and public servants are abusing others, only pretending to be doing their work, stealing, cheating, lying, even guilty of drunk driving and none of that is acceptable.. and we just see the tip of the iceberg

And everybody else does it is also still never a justifiable excuse..

We can often know too often our civil and public servants, governments. Medicare now are pretentious and none of that is very acceptable still as well, especially when they take their pay form the taxpayer’s money but show little good for it still too.

Mountie faces second impaired driving charge

but the RCMP had said there are no RCMP alcholics, or less than a handful?

He has been a constable in the RCMP for about 16 years, according to RCMP, and has been on medical leave since the first incident. and has been an Alcoholic now for how many years as well? and his supervisors now as well?

 RCMP officer charged with impaired driving Vancouver Sun
CTV British Columbia – The Province – News1130 
   
When the too often immoral, lying RCMP Public relationship department tells the public that there are on the average only 3 alcoholic RCMP offices in Canada per year and we have had more than that Number RCMP officers caught drunk driving this year.. We have had news media report of some Police officers in BC now getting drunk often after work even in the Police stations and likely driving home as well. It is an undeniable fact that Police taverns are often filled with police officer after the shift has ended, and likely many of them drive home drunk.. but it is the citizens that seem to mostly end up on drunk charges in the court and mostly natives now as well.. 
 
 Certainly do not believe that all justice  is even best carried out, being done in the Queen’s courts, or by the too often  rigged Commissions, masturbating self regulating societies? How often do you even see bad lawyers, bad cops, bad RCMP, bad professionals, bad Politicians, bad alcoholics IN CANADA get their rightful dues now? Very rarely!!  
  

Vancouver Mountie faces second impaired driving charge in two months The Canadian Press  VANCOUVER, BC – A Mountie in Vancouver is facing his second impaired driving charge in two months. Vancouver police say they pulled the off-duty officer over Saturday morning and breath samples showed he was over the legal limit for blood alcohol. The 55-year-old officer, whose name has not been released, (But yours likely would be posted) already had a court date from a previous impaired driving charge and was prohibited from driving for 90 days. He’s now been charged with driving while prohibited, impaired driving and driving with a blood alcohol level over the legal limit. ( He likely also is still getting paid as a Mounties too) He is the latest in a number of Metro Vancouver police officers who have faced impaired driving charges in the last two years, including a Mountie charged in a Delta, B.C., crash that killed a 21-year-old motorcyclist in October 2008. The officer in that case, Cpl. Benjamin Monty Robertson, was the one who gave the order to use a Taser on Robert Dziekanski before the Polish man died at Vancouver airport in October 2007.

 

RCMP officer arrested 2nd time for drunk driving in Vancouver CBC.ca  The off-duty Mountie was arrested Saturday morning after a Vancouver police officer watched a man urinate in the Spanish Banks parking lot on N.W. Marine Drive and then get into a vehicle and attempt to drive away.After the Vancouver officer stopped the vehicle and identified the man as an RCMP officer, the man failed to pass a breathalyzer test, said police. Vancouver police are recommending he face charges of driving while prohibited, impaired driving and driving with blood-alcohol exceeding 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood. He was released and is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 8. The 55-year-old officer, assigned to RCMP’s E Division headquarters, was previously arrested Oct. 3 after an accident on the Second Narrows Bridge, said police. In that incident, police suspended his licence and recommended charges of impaired driving. He was scheduled to appear in court Nov. 20 in that case. The officer’s name has not yet been released because the Crown counsel has not yet approved a criminal charge from either of the two incidents, ( because Crown counsel is also an acoholic?)  but police did say the man has been a member of RCMP for 16 years and has been on medical leave since the October incident. Impaired driving is the No.1 criminal cause of death in Canada ( note not speeding) . “As police officers, we have seen first-hand the carnage and death caused by this irresponsible behaviour. This makes it all the more difficult when an incident involves one of our own.” ( and it occurs too often now too) -Go to jail. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. Pull his Licence. Take his badge end of story.   These types of police officers bring a bad image to the rest of the force, which as a whole, does a very good job. So this suspended officer, has been caught again, and then he is released, and after having an accident in the first incidence. This person should be held in custody, he is obviously a danger to the public and to himself. Are there two sets of laws? What a shame, however, he MUST be held to the same standard as any other person in Canada. Peace Officers need to be beyond reproach, and in the case of the RCMP as of late, even more so.  I also would like to know why no charges have been filed from the first incident??? Seems odd to me. Twice eh? Wonder if the Crown will approve the charges? If it was me, Im sure charges will already be laid and my name all over the local papers. Medical leave my arse,…. what his medical condition….hungover?
 
 

 
Hey, RCMP officers, when will you wake up from drunkenness? The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), colloquially known as Mounties, is the national police force of Canada. RCMP officers should be the representatives of responsibility, dignity, honesty, and honour. Some BC Lower Mainland’s police officers really smeared the image of RCMP in people’s minds. In two years, five Lower Mainland RCMP officers faced charges of drunk driving. On Oct. 4, 2009, Sunday, around 4:20 a.m., the fifth officer, who works at the RCMP’s Vancouver headquarters, was arrested for impaired driving after his car hit a cement barrier near the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge. Two passengers on his car were sent to hospital and the driver failed the alcohol test on the scene. He was off-duty that time. The other four drunk driving cases the Lower Mainland RCMP officers involved in were: On Sept. 25, an officer from Coquitlam of BC was charged with impaired driving after being stopped by policemen of his own police bureau. Last November, one of the four officers involved in Robert Dziekanski’s stun-gun case was arrested for drunk driving after he hit and killed a young motorcyclist in Delta of BC. Near the end of 2007, Cpl. Darren Baker and Const. Kulwant Singh Malhi were charged with impaired driving in West Vancouver and Richmond of BC respectively. What’s wrong with the RCMP officers of BC Lower Mainland? Come on. Please don’t ruin people’s trust anymore.

Charges have been stayed for an RCMP officer accused of driving drunk and fleeing after a fender-bender three years ago. Const. Kulwant Singh Malhi, 43, was charged in 2008 with failure to stop at an accident, impaired driving and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.  The charges were stayed by a judge in B.C. Provincial Court in Richmond Thursday on the third and final day of Malhi’s trial. Malhi remains suspended with pay and a Code of Conduct investigation is under way.

Real Justice in Canada too

 Forbidding any other inquiries cause there is one in the courts is ALSO STILL really absurd. Court delaying tactics that could be easily used thus  next insuring  that real justice is not even carried out in the courts. Often more than one inquiries are required as a balance or check.  Anyone who trusts an often  politically appointed judge is a fool rather for how often do we see now still see the provincial and federal courts contradicting each others too? Certainly do not believe that all justice  is even best carried out, being done in the Queen’s courts, or by the too often  rigged Commissions, masturbating self regulating societies? How often do you even see bad lawyers, bad cops, bad RCMP, bad professionals, bad Politicians, bad alcholics IN CANADA get their rightful dues now? Very rarely!!  

 

 Conservative ex PM Brian Mulroney is a great example of how injsutice was, is being carried out by the courts and  by the too often bad RCMP too.

Groups boycott B.C. police complaint system, call on government for reform 1VANCOUVER – An anti-poverty group and the B.C. Civil Liberties Association say they will boycott the provincial police complaint system until the government makes “urgently needed” changes.

Some do even say :The Gomery inquiry into the Liberals’ “Adscam” sponsorship program scandal, the Mulroney-Schreiber inquiry, and other recent investigative hearings by federal parliamentary committees have revealed that when it comes to discovering the truth of many situations of alleged wrongdoing, the federal government’s inquiry system is broken. While parliamentary committees have the power to subpoena witnesses and evidence, and while many opposition party supporters may delight in the hearings that have been held examining questionable ruling party activities in the past few years, during which we have had a minority federal government, these committees’ overall record is not good. Not surprisingly, the MPs on the committees usually have represented their political parties’ interests in these hearings, in votes concerning whether to hold hearings, and what witnesses to call. The recent hearing into the federal Conservatives’ questionable election spending scheme is only the latest example of an ineffective committee investigation (especially given that a civil court case, and a quasi-criminal investigation, are currently examining the same scheme in a much more fact-based, fair and impartial way). At the same time, the federal cabinet’s power to establish a commission of inquiry under the Inquiries Act also deserves to be questioned, given the record over the past couple of decades. Justice John Gomery, who was appointed by Paul Martin’s cabinet, has been found by a Federal Court judge to have acted in a manner biased against former Prime Minister Jean Chretien and his chief of staff Jean Pelletier, while other Gomery Commission watchers have also noted how Gomery’s final report ignored clear evidence of then-Finance Minister Martin’s knowledge of, and intervention in, the sponsorship program. Conservative Prime Minister Harper and his cabinet have made every decision about the inquiry into the actions of former Conservative Prime Minister Brian Mulroney’s relations with Karlheinz Schreiber, even though Mr. Harper’s own actions are in question, which has resulted in an inquiry that will not examine many significant questions about the situation. Several years ago, then-Prime Minister Chretien’s cabinet and majority government shut down the inquiry into the armed forces scandal in Somalia when it headed in a direction it didn’t like, and restricted the scope of the inquiry into the tainted blood scandal.  And then, of course, there are all the inquiries that were called for by opposition parties or political commentators that didn’t occur during the past 20 years. That was when the Conservatives or Liberals had a majority government and therefore, controlled all parliamentary committees. In other words, whether an inquiry is launched into allegations of wrongdoing by anyone in the federal government, and whether the inquiry is fair and based on evidence, is determined by the whims of either the leaders and MPs of the ruling party, or of the opposition parties. Fortunately, there are two simple solutions to this unethical, ineffective mess that could be made by the opposition parties very quickly this fall (given that they control a majority of seats in the House of Commons and Senate). First, the Inquiries Act should be changed to require approval of a majority of the federal party leaders in the House of Commons to initiate and set the terms of reference for an inquiry, and approval of all party leaders to choose the inquiry commissioner(s) after nominees are screened by the Public Appointments Commission. This change would very likely lead to more inquiries being launched with the support of only opposition parties, but each would be overseen by a qualified person who would be chosen by consensus of all party leaders, not hearings held by unqualified partisan MPs. Opposition parties would pay a political cost if they launched frivolous inquiries that waste the public’s money. A key part of this change is the establishment of the Public Appointments Commission to ensure that inquiry commissioners are qualified. The Conservatives’ Federal Accountability Act allows, but does not require, cabinet to create the commission, and Prime Minister Harper and his cabinet have so far failed to set it up. Second, the Parliament of Canada Act should be changed to prohibit committee hearings on matters being dealt with by an inquiry or a court, until the inquiry or court case is over. This would stop committees from holding redundant, kangaroo-court hearings into subjects that are being examined through judicial processes. Federal party leaders may not agree with these specific proposed solutions, but all should recognize that a so-called mature democracy such as Canada’s should have a mature system that ensures fair investigations of alleged wrongdoing by anyone in the federal government, and that Canadians deserve better than the current system which is riddled with conflicts of interest. Duff Conacher is the Coordinator of Democracy Watch, Canada’s leading democratic reform organization.”  http://dailygleaner.canadaeast.com/article/370396

And what we always still also do need is real laws, enforced ones, not hypocritical ones..

CP OTTAWA – ‘It appears Prime Minister Stephen Harper has failed to meet his own conflict-of-interest rules for declaring gifts received.  Harper has not publicly declared a gift since February, despite being required to do so within 30 days under new guidelines introduced by his minority Conservative government.  However, an official insisted the prime minister is in compliance with the rules because all gifts are in the “process” of being disclosed or still being appraised to establish their value.  “All items are either disclosed properly or are in the process of being disclosed,” said the official, who asked not to be identified.  “Certain items have taken in excess of 30 days due to the time required for proper appraisal.”  Under the new conflict rules in the Conservatives’ public accountability legislation of 2006, all gifts Harper and his cabinet ministers receive valued over $200 must be reported within 30 days.  A compliance manager for Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson told The Canadian Press the office has not received notice of gifts received by Harper since his last report on Feb. 2. The last gift on that disclosure was a framed photo Harper received during a visit to Churchill, Man., in October 2007.  Previous gifts in that report include a desk decorated with antlers Harper received from U.S. President George Bush at a summit in Montebello, Que., Cuban cigars from the Cuban ambassador in Ottawa, and a New York Rangers jersey signed by Mark Messier.  Other gifts on Harper’s list included presents from corporate gift-givers, including a Christmas hamper in 2006 from the chairman of Reimer World Corporation and a Christmas gift from the president of Nestle Canada.  The conflict of interest act carries an “administrative monetary penalty” not exceeding $500 for public office holders who fail to comply with the gift disclosure  requirements of the act, and other provisions.  Opposition MPs blasted Harper.  “They came out with all that rhetoric about being the white knights on accountability but when it comes time, they’re missing in action,” said New Democrat MP Pat Martin, adding the prime minister has an obligation to lead by example.  “These little things are important symbolically and a cavalier attitude toward reporting sends a terrible message.”  Liberal MP Mark Holland accused Harper of violating his own legislation.  The new act took effect in July 2007. ”

As far as Stephen Harper’s pre- election promises, lies to make his government hold himself, all others more accountable, it too was just another big typical lie to get elected, once elected promises are not kept by a clearly  another  immoral politician name Stephen Harper   

and what we also do not need is an other clearly Canadian immoral corporation like Bell Sympatico.

“Re: http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/06/14/dirty-dirty-bell-sympatico/
Dirty Bell yes you are right I am having problems too . I TRIED A FAX, BUT THEY WOULDN’T GIVE ME A REPLY. I Sent all my info to their office registered do you think I get a reply.No! My service was down june 9/08 they sent me a letter of cancellation and then decided I was still activated and they want more money. I said I am not paying for service I don’t have. No contract? they say yes but i say no. I do not have time for this crap. I only ever had one so called contract that was fullfilled the rest were oferrs unfulfilled, really no contracts. I will leave Bell completely if I have to and there are other companies around for phone service. Bell they keep adding money to my bill for internet service I do not have. This is how they make money by stealing from people. If we did that we would go to jail. Sympatico can put it all where the sun dont shine. Truly angered Rose ”  by: Rose on July 31, 2008  at 3:32 pm  

All Bell employees clearly seem wrongfully concerned only about keeping their jobs, by insuring that the customer pays their Bills, but still they do not care about solving the problems the customers are having, even because they have no authority, to deal with the customer’s problems.. I have dealt with them now for 18 months complaining, wrote 300 letters but when it comes to serving, helping the customers they act still like they are all idiots, fools.. they all do need to fired now, not just the managers..

and no one can deny these truths too..
