The bribery shenanigans unfolding at the Charbonneau commission, the intrigue involving Arthur Porter and the MUHC/SNC-Lavalin frolics, tales of second-rate asphalt and now even bridges falling down clearly all indicate something is, was still seriously wrong in Quebec as well
Follow the money trail, the oldest rule of good journalism and why is that so? as the love of money is the root of ell evil still.. He or she who cannot be trusted to handle money cannot be trusted to handle anything else now too. Money and Power still clearly corrupts and our boys on the Ottawa Hill and elsewhere demonstrate this reality much too often these days too.
While Scandals and corruption are nothing new in politics whether it be the MPs…MLAs or Senators at all levels of government. The political past and present times are not only rampant and full of scandals and corruptions that are too numerous to even begin to list but they are still very clearly evidence of the really bad managements by the political leaders. Even this recent wave of scandal and corruption all across the country at all levels of government is CONTINUAL signal for us the citizens to seriously weigh in the matter and demand not only more safe guards such as mandatory police clearances prior to anyone being allowed to run for office but we need to see these guilty persons punished. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty persons, with jail time, serves everyone’s best interest even the guilty offender. Mandatory legal actions should made into law against all bad civil and public servants, politians that would allow further criminal proceedings against any who are involved in taxpayer’s money abuses scandal and corruption. The time for this change in political governing is in order. Not only because of our good welfare …..but rather because of these much too many crooks, abusers..
And once elected…….periodical checks are required, even recalls on all politicians, senators too to insure that these politicians have not next not falling to the weigh side while in office and they should not be treated be treated any better or differently over anyone else in life who does wrong, evil, crimes.
Obviously too many of our politicians, civil and public servants as evidenced from their past and current behavior and conduct really are no better then anybody else, are unsuited thus for their jobs and should be removed ASAP
it’s time the RCMP looked at the questionable spending practices – their own and the others http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2013/02/13/ndp_seeks_rcmp_probe_into_senate_expenses_controversy.html …
OTTAWA – Controversy over Mike Duffy’s Senate housing allowance has mushroomed into a bigger question — whether he’s entitled to sit in the Senate at all — that now threatens to ensnare colleague Pamela Wallin. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/housing-flap-plaguing-duffy-wallin-raises-questions-senate-231632232.html
Wallin’s Senate eligibility questioned by political scientist Senators are required to be residents of the province they represent, but according to Leeson, political science professor emeritus at the University of Regina, since she was appointed in 2009, Wallin has given less than satisfactory answers to questions about her connection to the province.”If she would simply say, ‘Yes, I have a driver’s licence. Yes, I have a health care card. Yes, I file my taxes from here,’ that would clear it up,” he said. “But she hasn’t done that.” Wallin has repeatedly said she owns property in Saskatchewan and meets the Senate residency requirement. However, she declined to answer questions from CBC News about whether she has a Saskatchewan health card or a Saskatchewan driver’s licence. http://bit.ly/12gLmYj
Wallin has claimed $321,037 in ‘other travel’ and $29,423 on flights from Ottawa to her home province of Saskatchewan since September 2010. But supposedly 70 per cent of her travel expense were for tickets from Ottawa to Toronto, where Wallin owns a condo. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/blogs/canada-politics/senator-pamela-wallin-audited-over-350-000-travel-135810011.html
SADLY NO ONE ADMITS THEIR GUILT, NOT EVEN DR PORTER OF MUHC OR ANY SENATORS, MPS, MAYORS, CITY HALL SERVANTS RATHER THEY TOO OFTEN FALSELY DO EVEN USE THREATS, LAWYERS TO SUPRESS ANY ACCUSATIONS, NEGATIVE FACTS..THEY CANNOT DENY THE TRUTH STILL
Senators Brazeau, Duffy, Harb face outside audit – NO SUCH TING AS A LITTLE BIT PREGNANT http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/senators-brazeau-duffy-harb-face-outside-audit-1.1148469 …
THE VERY BAD SENATORS APPOINTED IS THE MAIN ISSUE, EVEN I CAN SEE THAT, AND NOT THE SENATE ITSELF, THAT INCLUDES THE BAD SELECTIONs MADE BY THE CURRENT PRIME MINISTER STEPHEN HARPER
“In fact, the most common lament one hears these days from long-time senators of both political stripes is that the Harper appointees are nothing more than cheerleaders, tossing reasoned debate and committee work over the deck in favour of boosting the man who gave them the job. To Ottawa-based journalists, Duffy betrayed the tribe, insulting those of us who believe our job is to try to hold our elected representatives to account, not to turn on a dime once a patronage plum is dangled.”
NO SUCH TING AS A LITTLE BIT PREGNANT.. ONE HAS TO BE REALLY DUMB IF ONE THINKS THAT THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE, HOUSING ALLOWANCES, THAT HE MIKE DUFFY OR ANY OTHERS HAVE CHEATED, LIED STOLE NOW. AS OLD BAD HABITS DIE HARD. AND THE ORDINARY FOLKS WOULD NOT BE LEFT GO THAT EASILY. ALL PEOPLE IN LEADERSHIP HAVE TO BE JUDGED MORE SEVERELY AS THEY ARE ALSO TO BE GOOD EXAMPLES AND NOT BAD ONES. PUBLIC EXPOSURE AND PROSECUTION OF THE GUILTY PERSONS SERVES EVERYONE’S BEST INTEREST STILL INCLUDING MIKE DUFFY’S . FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL, THE FIRST RULE OF JOURNALISM STILL APPLIES HERE TOO.
Now you can run but not hide, but as a Politiican, civil and public servant, professing leader, pastor or preiest too you lead by personal example too, all people have a right to judge all you do.

Quebec’s police task force on corruption is probing how a billion-dollar contract for a Montreal mega-hospital was awarded to a consortium led by Montreal engineering giant SNC Lavalin Group Inc. The police raids conducted at McGill University Health Centre headquarters http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/quebecs-anti-corruption-police-squad-searches-mcgill-university-health-centre/article4551179/
MONTREAL — Former federal Senator David Angus has been questioned by Operation Marteau investigators probing the awarding of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) super hospital contract to SNC-Lavalin, La Presse reported http://www.globalmontreal.com/former%20federal%20senator%20questioned%20by%20quebec%20fraud%20investigators%20report/6442730071/story.html
When this kind of corruption is all you hear about you know that the Conservative state government even has gone rotten.
By the way the people who make false expense statements are also guilty now of tax evasion
