295,000 Canadian job losses

0cbcnewse2
 
While Statistics Canada reported on Tuesday March 24, 2009 that 560,400 Canadians were getting regular employment insurance benefits in January, 104,000 more or 22.8 per cent more than 11 months earlier and 23,700 more than in December. Opposition parties demanded Tuesday that the government improve benefits to the unemployed, saying the current program covers less than half of the unemployed. He noted that of the 1.3 million officially unemployed, only 560,000 are collecting benefits. Human Resources Minister Diane Finley, said 80 per cent of individuals who pay into the system qualify for benefits. Many part-time workers and the self-employed do not qualify for EI and of course, there are cases where they do not have sufficient hours,” 295,000 job losses of the past four months are just the beginning and that more Canadians will be thrown out of work this year. Every member of Parliament has been flooded with calls from constituents complaining about delays in receiving their benefits. Liberal, NDP and Bloc Quebecois MPs attacked the government for failing to prepare adequately for the hundreds of thousands who have lost their jobs in the past four months and hundreds of thousands more expected to join the ranks of the unemployed this year. They have called for major changes to the system because many part-time workers and self-employed workers are not eligible for benefits. But while the government expanded unemployment benefits a maximum of five weeks during the Jan. 28 budget, it is clear it did not foresee jobs disappearing as quickly as they have. Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said   “Obviously, the unemployment numbers are getting worse.”
 
ALL THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT  CHANGE FROM HARPER’S ORIGINAL PAST STATEMENT THAT THERE WILL BE NO MAJOR RECESSION IN CANADA MONTHS AGO. Opposition parties say thousands of Canadians are being denied needed employment insurance benefits because the federal government was slow in getting the system ready for the massive demand. Stephen Harper and the  federal Conservatives themselves have been unacceptably  very slow to deal with the negative impact of the recession in Canada in reality.

 STAY INFORMED

PS: 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. In reality now also  speeding also still is not the main reasons for accidents but driving while impaired is.. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/01/08/drivers-will-face-significant-insurance-rates/

The whole truth comes out.. drunk drivers, snow removal, road accidents, recession..

Surging welfare demands in Ontario now really still begs the Questions as to when actually many of these people had lost their jobs, were unable to find one, after all welfare is used after one’s months of Unemployment insurance is used up first? It ALSO THUS seems someone is not telling us the true figures of the number of people unemployed in Canada, Ontario firstly, the recession did not just start this year.. especially since the people on welfare are generally no longer counted as unemployed.. Well the whole truth is coming out, being exposed even in Ontario. 

“CP  Ont. – Premier Dalton McGuinty dismissed calls Tuesday to accelerate the uploading of social assistance programs from municipalities, despite warnings that surging welfare costs will mean big tax hikes for struggling homeowners. “The short answer is no, I don’t believe so,” McGuinty said in London, Ont. The province, which pays for 80 per cent of welfare benefits, has moved a “long way” towards easing the burden on municipalities, he said. “Our burden, so to speak, is four times greater than theirs when it comes to dealing with the challenge of increasing welfare roles,” McGuinty said. “Just as they have financial challenges, so do we, and we’re going to have to find a way to manage our way through these.”  

A recent TD Economics report warned that homeowners in struggling Ontario communities may be hit with big property-tax hikes to cover rising welfare costs during the recession. The report singled out Toronto, but TD economist and co-author Derek Burleton said other municipalities will face similar financial pressures as the economy sours. In its budget plan released Tuesday, Toronto signalled that residential property taxes will rise by four per cent in 2009. Mayor David Miller cited higher costs for transit, policing, snow clearance (* this  explains why there have been more road accidents in Ontario now too, 17000 in the last 2 months, since Ontario’s roads have not been immediately cleared of the snow it seems..) and welfare in defending the hike. Municipalities can’t go into deficits, but the provincial government can. Municipalities currently pay 20 per cent of welfare benefits, but they also administer the program, and the province has capped increases to its share of those administrative costs, Burleton noted in his report. 

Windsor, Ont., has been struggling for years to find a way out of a severe economic downturn that began in 2002, said Mayor Eddie Francis.  As manufacturing jobs disappeared, welfare caseloads started to “skyrocket” in 2005, he said.  With Windsor’s jobless rate hitting 11 per cent – the highest in Canada – more people are turning to welfare and other social programs as their unemployment benefits run out, Francis said.  As the costs of maintaining those programs go up, the amount of tax revenue the city is collecting is plunging, he added.  * “We’re at a point right now where… we’ve cut to the bone in terms of city services,” Francis said.  Last year, the city lost about $15 million in tax revenue – the equivalent of a four per cent tax hike – because property values are falling and companies are shuttering plants and factories, Francis said.  The loss of a GM plant alone would cost the city $3 million in much-needed tax revenue, he added.  Speeding up the provincial upload of costs from municipalities and the arrival of much-needed federal cash for infrastructure projects would ease financial burden many cities and towns are facing, he said.  “Everything is needed right now – all the tools,” he said.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090211/national/ont_municipalities_welfare 

* It clearly appears that the lying Police chief of Ontario and also cops themselves who wrongfully  even as of lately had have blamed most of the drivers themselves, speeding,  for most of the accidents, they clearly wrongfully had failed to mention now that snow clearing  road services were not up to par due to the recession… and definitely contributed to the accidents. the Liars, the” OPP responded to over 17,000 crashes on OPP patrolled highways in the last two months. Sgt. Woodford says not to blame the weather for the collisions, but drivers not driving according to road conditions, such as speeding and following too closely”  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/02/08/drunk-driving-arrests-jump/,  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/12/22/cops-lie-too/ 

Now also the recession has been  going on for years in Ontario since 2005 and Stephen Harper did not know this as the Prime Minister of Canada, so now supposedly he could not deal with it or in reality he wrongfully again did not care to know, deal with it still  oo? and he does not know firsthand about alcoholism and it’s  problem now too? 

Former Liberal prime minister Paul Martin complained Stephen Harper was too slow in bringing forward a stimulus package, saying the government should have acted before Christmas.”I think the situation is very worrisome and I think that when you see these job numbers it’s a pity that we didn’t begin with the stimulus much earlier,” Martin said of a $40-billion plan MPs approved in principle last week.
 
Meanwhile, Brian Mulroney expressed skepticism over Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney’s prediction the economy will pick up next year. “The quicker you get at this kind of thing, the better off you are. I also think it’s very important the kind of stimulus that you engage in.””While I hope he’s right, I find it somewhat optimistic,” said Mulroney, who grappled with a massive deficit that amounted to 8.7 per cent of the GDP when he took over from Pierre Trudeau in 1984.   http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090210/national/tv_prime_ministers

Beware laying spin doctors at work. Remember how they said in the past in Canada that the closed door  to the US borders was temporary, even for the mad cows as well, and next the reality was very severe, different . Now another lying government spin doctor says this Canada wide recession will only last one year.. but the reality is 15 years, for that is how long it takes to kick start again the Canadian economy in historical reality.  

And making it easier to get a car loan or a home mortgage when many people have decided not to drive at all, and have clearly  stopped buying non essentials is another Harper- Conservative absurd approach too.

 There is no doubt that Stephen Harper brought his government to the brink of downfall after last fall’s economic statement that called for the abolition of taxpayer subsidies to political parties, with severe damage to the reputation of Stephen Harper as a successful leader now as well.   Stephen Harper’s SOLE RECESSION help  at that time was mainly  to cut the opposition parties grants. We all now know what happened next. The new Conservatives under Stephen Harper next came within a governor general’s decision of falling to a Liberal/NDP coalition that was propped up by a more than willing Bloc Quebecois. Harper awaken to the gravity of the situation, suspended parliament for 60 days and came out with a new budget which could have equally been drafted by Michael Ignatieff, the current Liberal leader and Stephen Harper was saved from the guillotine as a result. While the new Conservative -Harper government unveiled in shock its deficit producing, record-spending budget  that today that’s called stimulating the economy, but  few years ago, it was called the sponsorship program that was despised, objected to by the same Conservatives, Harper included. It’s overall effectivness is very much questionable again too. “Conservative ministers have been dispatched on selling trips across the country, armed with press releases and promises of much public loot at every stop” they now  should not stop any of us from examining the actual working details, productiveness, effectiveness  of the budget still and all taxpayers on high alert for taxpayer’s money abuses still too. Since we tend to know that History repeats itself and there still rather likely would be a lot better way to spend the same money and produce more effective job creation results for the unemployed, jobless citizens.  Especially “As federal Auditor General Sheila Fraser reported last week, the government spends billions of dollars every year with no clue what, if anything, it achieves.  And when a program is driven by photo ops and a need to spend public money quickly, odds are high it is a boondoggle waiting to happen. It’s not that we haven’t seen this movie before. The last time a government launched a major infrastructure spending spree to “stimulate a moribund economy” was in the 1990s. By the time the cheques were written, the program had provided fodder for not one but two damning reports by the auditor general. ” Causing a change of government and next  we taxpayers were not any better off now as well! Forecast for  days ahead, Vigilance of the new Conservatives, Stephen Harper rightfully still needed. 

“OTTAWA – After dismal jobless reports out of Canada and the U.S., the Liberals wasted no time Friday attacking the Conservatives on their handling of the economy.  “Not only did they not see this coming, but they have no idea where they are going,” Liberal finance critic John McCallum said to kick off Question Period.  Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff said January’s record job loss numbers paint a clear picture of just how severely the recession has affected Canadian families while the Conservatives were asleep at the switch. Ignatieff said the staggering numbers are precisely why he has put the government on probation with his Liberal budget amendment.  “Last fall, Stephen Harper said that it was a good time to buy stocks, he said that there was no need to run a deficit and he said if we were going to have a recession it would have happened by now,” said Ignatieff. “We now know that as he was saying that, the market fell further, the Conservatives were in the red, and over 234,000 jobs were lost.”  “This government has failed to plan and failed to protect Canadian jobs. It didn’t see the seriousness of the downturn and failed to bring in an immediate stimulus package when the urgency was clear,” he said.”

fresh, healthy food too expensive: Poll

1canada1  
TORONTO — Almost half of Canadians say they are going without fresh, healthy food because it is too expensive, according to a national poll released Monday by the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
http://www.calgaryherald.com/Health/Canadians+fresh+healthy+food+expensive+Poll/1269731/story.html

The poll showed 47 per cent of Canadians don’t buy fresh fruit, vegetables, dairy and whole grain products, lean meat or fish because of the cost.

The foundation’s annual report on Canadians’ Health also revealed what it called “startling discrepancies” in the cost and availability of basic healthy food from province to province.

“Depending on where you live, some Canadians are often paying more than double to almost six times the price for the same basic healthy food,” the report said.

The foundation said governments need to “create a level playing field” for consumers.

“Many provincial governments regulate the price of alcohol across provinces, but healthy food is subject to significant price variations from one community to the next,” said foundation spokesman Stephen Samis.

“You have to wonder why we control the price of alcohol but allow such price inconsistencies for healthy food — and not just in remote regions of the country — but even between larger metropolitan areas.”

For example, the poll found the cost of six apples ranged from $1.71 in Edmonton to $5.02 in Calgary. In Ontario, where apples are grown regionally, the cost varied from 90 cents in Peterborough to $5.49 in Dryden. A 2.7 kg bag of potatoes ranged from $1.50 in Toronto to $2.15 in Whitehorse, to $6.95 in Yellowknife, N.W.T.

The Heart and Stroke Foundation said the wide variation in the cost of healthy food is even more disturbing when compared to the relatively stable price of pop, chips and cookies.

“Healthy eating is a key factor in preventing heart disease,” cardiologist Dr. Beth Abramson, said Monday. “This report should serve as a wake-up call that healthy eating is in danger of being out of reach for many Canadians, a problem which may only get worse given the current downturn in the economy.”

Last October, the Heart and Stroke Foundation had volunteer shoppers in 66 communities across Canada purchase a list of healthy foods for a family of four for one week.

It found some of the most “disturbing” data was reflected in the price variations of grain products. For example, a package of whole-wheat pasta that cost $2 in Barrie, Ont., was $7.90 in Regina, Sask., and $11.37 in Dawson City, Yukon. A bag of brown rice ranged from $2.19 in Toronto to $7.76 in Winnipeg, to $11.99 in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut.

In the case of both milk and cheese, the survey found prices could be more than double depending on where you live.

A pound of lean ground beef could range from $13.21 in Ottawa to $4.99 in Peterborough, Ont. and the Yukon.

The foundation said these price variations may explain why almost half of adults and 70 per cent children in Canada don’t consume the minimum recommended servings of vegetables and fruit established by Canada’s Food Guide.

“This can only encourage unhealthy eating behaviour that will ultimately lead to obesity and risk factors for heart disease,” Abramson said.

 The situation was found to be even worse for First Nations people and Inuit, many of whom live in isolated communities.

In northern Ontario, four litres of milk was $15.70 in Bearskin Lake, compared to $3.49 in Vancouver. A package of whole-wheat pasta was $8.68, compared to $2.00 in Barrie, Ont. Other high cost items included: $10.99 for six oranges; $7.45 for six apples; and $10.88 for a 2.7 kg. bag of carrots. Survey shoppers also found that many healthy foods including chicken legs, frozen fish, fresh tomatoes, fresh broccoli, canned corn, canned peas, frozen mixed vegetables, potatoes and brown rice weren’t available at all in Bearskin Lake.

The study also found that healthy foods such as dried beans and frozen spinach were unavailable in almost one in three grocery stores where the foundation shopped.

The only items that showed little price variation and accessibility from one community to the next were pop, chips and cookies, which Canada’s Food Guide recommends be consumed less frequently.

Now on top of all that add to that how food manufacturers, drug stores do also make big  profits on health related items

FBI joins investigation  while the RCMP is too busy consuming alcohol?

 
Now we all know that prices can vary, even significantly from one  retail store to another, and that price fixings also do exist something the consumer affairs ministers need to supervise with more vigilance than they tend to do so as well now..  DO FORWARD THEM THIS NOTE, REMINDER NOW TOO.
 
Still Shopping in one sole store is a dangerous way to try to save on essential good and health costs, but what do you do when there is not much choice, you are at the mercy of the seller, distributor, who often wrongfully do not hesitate to take advantage of it and to price gouge you. Simple old fashion greed is the basis of the high prices everywhere it seems. Take  for instance 1 in 8 persons is diabetic, but yet   the price of sugar free products is often 300 percent higher or even much more for a start.. the same applies to Margarine, etc
 
NOTE  THE fresh, healthy food IS EXPENSIVE FIRSTLY CAUSE THE RETAILERS HAVE A HIGH PRICE MARK UP ON IT. NOW THAT INCLUDES NOT ONLY FRUITS, AND VEGETABLES but other supposedly more healthier products.. YES THE SHIPPING COSTS FROM CALIFORNIA HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT, BUT CALIFORNIA IS IN DRASTIC RECESSION SO YOU WOULD THINK THE PRICES THERE OF THEIR GOODS WOULD BE CHEAPER NOW AS WELL? The old excuse of the price of high rising cost of fuel is no longer valid as well.

Still actions speak louder over mere words

 

 
 

Almost since my first job after graduating from university I had learned that people are not to be trusted, need to be supervised, and corruption still exists in construction, universities, municipalities, governments, corporations, amongst professionals and politicians as well
  
Tax payer’s money abuses, false expense account statements, stealing, tax evasions,   obstruction of justice, cheating, lying,  drunkenness, impaired driving, pornography,  Adultery, VERBAL, PHYSICAL ABUSES, are all ESPECIALLY unacceptable for any civil and public servants. It is a clearly established fact with good basis as to why our Canadian leaders, politicians, police, military, public and civil servants  who are always to be exemplary are even personally are to held to a higher standard, accountability in reality.  
 
Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.  
 
 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. 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 promise the reforming of bad cops and the bad cops keep killing, abusing  innocent persons. The possible retaining 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

Subject: Re: There is still the petty Employment Insurance
 
Thank you for your reply, As you are aware my concerns are posted clearly  on the net for all to read world wide.
 
The Jobless need more help, and the present federal Stimulus budget  in reality  is still unlikely to stem the job losses, or  help the unemployed. Instead of everyone chasing their own tail we need to get down to serious job creation programs, give real help to the unemployed. 
  
It was about 25 years ago, 2.5 decades ago I reviewed the matter of recession and job creation programs approach in Canada and I had fully, rightfully concluded that the best and fastest way to increase jobs, to create MORE  jobs, for this certainty was not through the rather still mostly wasteful GOVERNMENTAL,  MUNICIPAL DEPARTMENTS, AGENCIES.
  
The effective job creation programs  should  rather be done through the established firms in the private sector and done by mainly  increasing  their existing  sales, marketing, developing additional markets, products in these existing profitable small, medium or larger firms. Most private firms still are hesitant to expand, they need incentives, encouragement to take on the extra problems, new work, to expand  for they all tend to reach a comfort operating  level and they tend not to want to next even increase their size, profitability in fact. Hoping to develop  new jobs, profitability by the creation, establishment of the  new firms is very unlikely, for  it takes years before these firms show some degree to stability and profitability.
 
So you have to establish reasons for a new firm to create the new jobs, such as a cash grant, rewards  for each of their new employee who lasts longer than 2 years with the firm. And provide for 2 months on the job retraining.
 
In order to do this you have to now help them to develop more effectively especially firstly  their own sales, marketing department as well. A role the pretentious, incompetent FBDB is not capable of doing now even as well.. The government thus also should offer free services from a private sales, marketing consulting firm to help any firm that requests it a free review, recommendations towards  increasing effectively, immediately their firm’s profitability, sales and size.
 
Reality, Canada  is in the starts of of a deep recession and the proposed existing  fiscal stimuli, is very much  inadequate and what is needed is real, viable, tangible job creation programs. The hardworking Canadians who have been paying into employment insurance for years to have access to employment insurance at a time of need and what do they really get, 5 extra weeks extension of UI for them to find non existent jobs? After which their sole option is to go on social welfare but first they will have to loose all of their assets, savings.
 
The 2009 Canadian federal budget had extended employment insurance payments for those who are eligible by five weeks. But Finance Minister Jim Flaherty resisted demands to increase benefits or ease eligibility rules. Currently, only 54 per cent of laid-off workers qualify. Federal finance minister Flaherty rejected calls to ease employment insurance eligibility, saying that extending benefits was the best way to help the jobless. How stupid is he, does he really believe that the economy will turn around in that period of time while most public, civil servants, politicians, ministers doing nothing about it all? Or in his mind is he still like the fool, Ostrich  of a PM Harper who said there was not going to be any major Canadian recession? Sure seems like it. Birds of the same feathers flock together. Unacceptable., Really inacceptable.
 
Canada’s present and upcoming  Jobless need more real help. Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government still even faces mounting demands to improve all of the support for the jobless in the wake of the vast continual  increase in layoffs  across the country.  Opposition parties now rightfully accused they unprepared for prime Minister Harper who had falsely assured us mere months ago that if Canada were facing a recession, we would already have had it, of  leaving out the now large, continually growing pool of unemployed persons to deeply suffer without their receiving adequate help. A financial recovery plan crafted on making the banking loaned easier available to industry, car buyers, home purchasers  also into enough. Any incentives designed to buy new vehicles when there is no job to go to is a real unacceptable  fiasco as well..
 
” This 2009 federal budget by Stephen Harper does a huge disservice to Canadians, conservative and otherwise, who will now be saddled with massive deficits and an ineffective “stimulus” plan based not on sound economics but pork-barrel politics.” http://www.nationalpost.com/opinion/story.html?id=1246059 
 
I personally sat in the Alberta Minister’s career and manpower office, job creation program, office decades ago and found out firsthand the he had no plan whatsoever to deal with increasing Alberta’s  employment, for he falsely too was relying on others to do it  That seems to be still the trend of what too many of our leaders are also doing good about it. Unacceptably Nothing!
 
The rather too often ridiculous, diversionary selfishly oriented  discussions about tax reductions are generally absurd, inadequate in helping create jobs, or in helping the unemployed for in reality unemployed people do not pay taxes or generate tax  revenues, and that also includes the too many  much too many unprofitable, poorly managed  firms now as well.
 
Liberal MP Rodger Cuzner accused Human Resources Minister Diane Finley of failing to grasp the gravity of the situation.
 
 Calling the job carnage a “national tragedy,” NDP MP Peter Julian said the Liberals are also to blame for an inadequate assistance package.“They’re simply rubber-stamping a Conservative budget that continues a policy that is hurting thousands and thousands of Canadian families at the worst possible time — when they lose their jobs and they have no one to turn to,” he said.

The federal government  relying  on an uncertainty, a speedier U.S. recovery to hopefully boost the country’s fortunes, unemployment figures is a clear absurdity, unacceptability. Canada itself will next have to deal with a vast amount of likely home foreclosures as well which will add to the woes.

>Subject: There is still the petty Employment Insurance

There is still the petty Employment Insurance and the need  to extend benefits for five more weeks. Unemployed workers, idled by the recession, still have to adhere to the two-week waiting period if they indeed qualify for EI. And no increase in benefits are offered. On top of that there is the topic of job retraining programs, not everyone qualifies for job creation programs only persons under the age of 30 generally can apply for it, the rest of the people who still pay the taxes cannot get the benefits. 

First we need still a full  review of the waste, fraud, and abuse that has plagued governmental. efforts. What is also needed is a program to remove public officials from office that take our money and spend it on their own false pet projects while many of our people still are not getting the help that they need. 

Federal Deficit , economic, job creation and capital expenditure programs… are still untrustworthy. Being a past  senior civil, mechanical , projects engineer, project manager myself here now are   the major problem I righty still do had with capital expenditure projects even under PM Jean Chretien and never   mind next under PM Stephen Harper firstly: and it is  is that when you give do monies for a specific capital expenditure projects to the Provinces, Municipalities as well, and just like in many of the non profit organizations now too, a significant portion of the money firstly never even gets to the intended sources but it is diverted elsewhere.. Diverted to: such as paying for existing deficits, debts, unprofitable civil and public services, departments, Crown Corporations too, ineffective overheads, unrelated operating costs  in the provincial , municipal departments. Now since all that happens even before it hits the supposedly private sectors we need to address that too. Now next as to the supposedly private sectors and related projects expenditures , totally honest and fair governmental competition bids still tends not to exists. So no one can make me into a believer that this all of this taxpayer’s money will solely go all into a valid job creation program spurring on the general economy. The existing projects, capital expenditure safeguards are still just not totally there, not the related transparency, accountably as well.. even even you try to use an ex retired, RCMP officer as a supervisor in the contracts, purchasing department, for by now we all should now who immoral, untrustworthy even the RCMP now are too in fact. Some of the money will likely be used even out of the country for a selected few persons rather too.. Are many of the  civil servants, politicians still taking their holidays overseas at tax payers expenses? There are still much too many abusive and questionable expenses: All still Unacceptable too.  

Not just in Canada now there is increasing evidence even in the US, elsewhere that states like California and Michigan,   are running huge budget deficits, do need federal aid to keep their essential and non essential services operating. They would plummet an already battered federal budget billions of dollars further into a non positive deficit.  We all do need to face the negative  fact of what our own political, corporate leaders are doing this to our country too. Still it  all  also does  mean that no one can predict beforehand with certainty  which industries and municipalities will get the needed designated federal capital. 

Also the too common  practice of  putting many local workers out of work or paying them less wages by sending the higher paying jobs offshore has a devastating impact on the rest of the World, not to mention the local economy. We also still do need to have the True Unemployment Numbers. 

What is also needed is a program to remove public officials from office that take our money and spend it on their pet projects while many of our people still are not getting the help that they need.  

” At last count, there were at least 785 criminal cases under investigation by the Hurricane Katrina Task Force, a joint effort of 19 federal agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Postal Service, the Defense Department and even the Environmental Protection Agency. State prosecutors in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas are similarly swamped. And scores more cases wait in the wings.”

And do see also   Citizens Against Government Waste   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/

The fish stinks from the head but many cut the tail of first..  Reducing, cutting of the programs to the poor and needy persons for  that seems how the governments wrongfully still do wrongfully  respond to budget cut backs,  defecits, and to the poor and needy people too now, rather than dealing still firstly with the major crooks, tax payer’s money abusers too in the government and elsewhere… 
  
How many people in reality even in the civil, public services governments now  have been arrested all together  for tax evasions and tax payers money abuse now last year? How many? Anyone care to answer the question?
  
And speaking of the related  federal review as well, who are the high spenders last year in the federal government.. who ate at the best restaurants, traveled the most at the tax payers restaurants.. who were the drunks now too..  Politicians, and civil and public servants now included too..  (Luke 6:43 KJV)  For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
 
Even in our governments, history tends to repeat itself, including thefts, waste and mismanagement, deficits, and they tend not to rather get better and why?
 
There are also plenty of places to try to save the tax payer’s money but starting to save the tax payer’s money at the expense of the poor people and their welfare programs is not the best  way to do this, not at all the way to do it!   The governments firstly should though clearly manage better it’s civil and public servants.. and the capital expenditures. Why? Well I do also know from real  experiences that it is also the services to the poor and needy persons, those who can afford it the least, that are wrongfully cut to make up for the past budget mismanagement by Ministers, managers of the civil and public servants too in Canada’s Provinces, Municipalities too. Rather than cutting back on the governmental aid, programs to  the poor and needy persons even next  because of the government’s own unacceptable past mismanagement we all do now too need to really take another continual look at how effective our tax dollars are always all of being used by the civil and public servants, and their managers, politicians now too. Cutting back on the Corporate welfare also is what the government still does also needs to deal with and not cutting firstly the Social welfare. The Corporations got what Billions  in social welfare from the tax payers? and we do not have money for the poor people? or for proper medical care, or for proper Justice, police, consumer protection  too? It never surprises me anymore when the superiors, Managers even  at City hall as well can also still  find money for new furniture, more staff, larger personal expense accounts but cannot find  the money to help the ordinary, poor and needy people during the good and bad times now too. Unacceptable.
 
How many times have we now experienced he fact that the selected leaders, cabinet was not like what they had promised they would be, certainly now not like we had expected them rightfully to be as well? Clearly many many  Canadians are still often now really angry at, or disappointed with   the results of the various governments acts,    the selected candidates,  but  now when will we all deal with the root  issue that is the cause of the problems firstly and it is the immoral type of candidates being firstly nominated?  the liars and alcoholics mostly it seems.. and these type of brain damaged people will never do us much good even now as well.
 
We all need to care about the unemployed and the poor people, Elected officials now included. It also  seems even  the governments and it’s managers are too often rather still just for sale to the highest bidder… and it doesn’t care who they are involved with or what they are up to or what it looks like as long as they are rewarding themselves or  their friends, and thus they wrongfully and too tend  not too  really look after all of the good ordinary citizens welfare..  this is still never acceptable. They all Civil and public servants, politicians, need to be regularly supervised too. That is why we need and have the auditors, News media, Opposition parties, concerned citizens to do this too.. and it still generally is not enough as we can see.
 
The fish stinks from the head but many cut the tail of first..  That seems how the governments wrongfully does  respond to money and the poor people too now rather than firstly with the major crooks, the real tax abusers too.. 
 
“ Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do.(Galatians 2:10 KJV)  ”
 
It should be very clear to the honest New Testament Bible scholars that the Church of the New Testament was seriously concerned about the poor persons in their midst and helped them, and so should we all as well today.,, but many Evangelical churches in Canada wrongfully also still do not..
 
Making all of the poor people, social welfare recipients, those who can afford it the least, to pay for the sins of others is an immoral and  criminal act still. 
 
Furthermore here are thee, 3 things I know for sure in Canada the last 35 years
 
– It is not the poor people who have  mismanaged the majority of the tax payer’s money… but they do pay for it the most, those who can afford it the least
 
– if the public and civil servants had better managed the tax payer’s money there still would not  have been likely more money for the poor people cause the rich people would still try to steal it for themselves. I have met even covetous, greedy middle class and rich persons now too.
 
Thirdly  if all persons paid their taxes, and did not commit tax evasions, an ongoing major unacceptable sin that still do needs to be prosecuted there would be plenty of money for the poor people  assuming it could get to them without being stolen, intercepted again.
  
(Isa 10:1 KJV)  Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed; 2  To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless! 3  And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory? 4  Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. 
  
The past “Sponsorship manager suffered from alcoholism, inquiry told   Jim Brown Canadian Press   October 19, 2004   OTTAWA — The role of a key player in the federal sponsorship program has been called into question with the disclosure that he suffered from alcoholism.  Pierre Tremblay served as chief of staff to former public works minister Alfonso Gagliano in the early years of the program. He later moved to the civil service where he took charge of bureaucratic operations related to sponsorship projects.  But colleague Isabelle Roy confirmed at a public inquiry Tuesday that, through it all, Tremblay had a serious drinking problem and often couldn’t function after lunch. ” and how many more are there unacceptably like him still, alcoholics  in the government, MP’s Cabinet Ministers, managers, civil and public servants too? 
 
The federal government  relying  on an uncertainty, a speedier U.S. recovery to hopefully boost the country’s fortunes, unemployment figures is a clear absurdity, unacceptability. Canada itself will next have to deal with a vast amount of likely home foreclosures as well which will add to the woes. 
 
– The federal governments hands billions of dollars to the provinces and territories for various programs, but lacks any way to ensure the money is actually spent on those programs, the auditor general reported Thursday.
 
– The federal government also can’t say for sure whether billions of dollars being spent on green programs are actually protecting health, habitat or air quality, says the environment commissioner. Scott Vaughan’s first report to the Commons bluntly concludes that Ottawa too often “does not know the impact of its efforts.”  

“Canadians have high expectations that the government will take action to tackle environmental degradation,” said the audit, tabled in Parliament on Thursday. “The government needs to know what works, what doesn’t, and why.”

– Canada’s parliamentary budget officer is casting doubt on the federal government’s rosy projections in the budget, saying the recession will likely be deeper than expected and Ottawa’s stimulus package smaller and less effective.
 
– The federal Conservatives are engaging in pork-barrel politics by funnelling millions of dollars in infrastructure spending to friendly ridings. The Liberals say more than three-quarters of federal infrastructure money doled out since 2007 went to Conservative ridings. A Liberal analysis of the first $1 billion worth of specific projects financed by the Building Canada Fund concludes that 77.8 per cent of the money went to Tory constituencies. Gerard Kennedy, the Liberal infrastructure critic, says 21 of 27 projects that received funding were in Conservative ridings, He says that shows Stephen Harper’s Conservative government is using the fund to reward supporters and punish regions that did not vote Tory. The fund is the government’s flagship infrastructure program. It was supposed to dole out $37 billion over seven years but the country’s mayors have complained that very little money has actually flowed to municipal infrastructure projects. With billions of dollars in new promises for infrastructure in the recent budget, opposition-held ridings could be frozen out of job creation efforts, Liberal MP Gerard Kennedy said.  ”They’re not getting enough out the door, and what they’re promising is going to Conservative ridings,” Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff said.
 
Kevin Page also told a parliamentary committee Thursday the government’s claimed $39.9 billion stimulus package over two years is effectively about 20 per cent smaller, at $31.8 billion. 

And he adds that a portion of the smaller amount may not find its way into the economy because $10 billion is contingent on shared spending by other levels of government. 

The difference will mean the extra spending is unlikely to create or save the 190,000 jobs projected by Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, Page said, estimating the number at closer to 120,000. 

Liberal finance critic John McCallum called the discrepancies and the expectations of a more severe downturn alarming, adding that the government may have to raise its stimulus spending within the next few months.” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/canada/cp   

I too  have a sneaking suspicion that in six months, we’ll all be discussing  a big “Conservagate,” affair which will make the Liberal Shawinigate look like a mousesqueak. This from the party that go so angry over the overfunding of Liberal ridings when the shoe was on the other foot. 

TWO OF MY PAST NEIGHBORS, MANAGERS,  WHO WORKED FOR CITY HALL OPENLY BOASTED TO ME, AND DEMONSTRATED TO ME FOR YEARS THE COMMON CORRUPTION IN THE LOCAL CITY HALL, DONE BY THEM AND MANY OF THEIR COLLEAGUES. This included their unnecessary out of town trips, their taking stuff, computer accessories,  home from the office for their own personal use, boasted of  their lavish expense accounts, of their doing personal work at the office, and much more. Why did they think that me a tax payer would approve any of such wrong doings was their error. I reported their wrong doings rightfully rather. OTHER MANAGERS OF CROWN CORORATIONS HAD ALSO OFTEN BOASTED TO ME OF THEM DOING SIMILAR THEFTS  AS WELL..
 
Now we had elected the new Conservatives , a new government and a leader that was supposed to be much better, different from all the so called past bad governments. A government that would be reliable, , it will be open, transparent, accountable, better managed, honest, and it would keep it’s pre-election  promises,  would not lie to us too, And next was that so in reality? NO!!! Unacceptable
 
Do first  stop electing, hiring  liars, alcoholics, incompetents, and pretenders mostly.. instead fire all of them
 
 Thank you for your supposedly concern and letter of acknowledgement but next do show us all that actions speak louder than mere words, and show us what you really did good about this still.

Here still  is what I cannot understand about the federal job creation programs carried out under both the liberal and conservative governments, is the necessity it seems to give money firstly to the municipalities, as though they have a direct effect on voters.. Nothing can be farther from the truth for  neither the police themselves, nor the municipalities have a significant vote as to how the citizens will vote on election days. The only group  that can likely have any effect on the voters are pastors, and priests in fact.
 
 Here is what I know for sure in Canada proper policing, management ,  supervision  human rights commissions are a real fact of life, society, in schools, life,  in churches, governments, commerce, institutions, civil and public services, professional services too,  and elsewhere, even on the net,  for you will always have those 30 percent at least of the persons who will try to cheat, lie  , steal, bend the rules, falsely believe they are above the laws, Self  regulation alone is too often pretentious, farcical, often not applied as well. That applies especially to the professionals, civil and public services, police, municipalities, politicians now as well..

    Hidden agendas, the world is full of it, many people have hidden agendas, Pastors, Ministers, politicans, cops  too. Sadly some people they tend  present their own “facts,” but fall short in truthfulness  for they tend to falsely  have a hidden agenda, and often they want to be falsely personally worshipped and live in sin too.

Hoping to develop  new jobs, profitability by the creation, establishment of the  new firms is very unlikely, for  it takes years before these firms show some degree to stability and profitability.
     
    So you have to establish reasons for a new firm to create the new jobs, such as a cash grant, rewards  for each of their new employee who lasts longer than 2 years with the firm. And provide for 2 months on the job retraining.
     
    In order to do this you have to now help them to develop more effectively especially firstly  their own sales, marketing department as well. A role the pretentious, incompetent FBDB is not capable of doing now even as well.. The government thus also should offer free services from a private sales, marketing consulting firm to help any firm that requests it a free review, recommendations towards  increasing effectively, immediately their firm’s profitability, sales and size.
