Canada has ‘no intention’ to cancel $15bn arms deal with Saudi Arabia.

2A PRAYERS

.

Protesters in the Canadian capital of Ottawa demanded the cancellation of an arms deal with Riyadh, worth some $15 billion, after Saudi Arabia executed dozens of prisoners..

“Canada opposes the death penalty and decries the execution of 47 individuals in one day in Saudi Arabia on January 2, 2016.”  The Saudi regime has a history of locking up bloggers, executing critics and cracking down on dissent. “In the wake of these executions, we reiterate our call to the Government of Saudi Arabia to protect human rights.” in Canada Conservatives and now effectively under the Liberals: backing the Saudi regime despite its poor human-rights record. That is U.S. policy, and it has been Canadian policy, too, Conservatives and now effectively under the Liberals: backing the Saudi regime despite its poor human-rights record. That is U.S. policy, and it has also been a Canadian policy, too

.

“The Canadian light armoured vehicles, or LAVs, that will be sold to Saudi Arabia are not  mere jeeps. They are   armoured vehicles with gun turrets on top. And they are being sold to an internal security force, not Saudi Arabia’s regular army. That force, the Saudi Arabian National Guard, is tasked with protecting the royal family. It deploys its armoured vehicles at protests. There can be no assurance they will never be used against Saudi civilians.” Some of the armoured combat vehicles Canada is selling to Saudi Arabia in a controversial $15-billion arms deal will feature medium- or high-calibre weapons supplied by a European subcontractor – such as a powerful cannon designed to shoot anti-tank missiles.  This contradicts Justin Trudeau’s assertion during the federal election campaign that the deal brokered by the Canadian government was merely for what amount to “jeeps.”

.

Canada’s condemnation of the most recent gross human-rights violations by the Saudi regime rings   hollow . Prime Minister Justin Trudeau intends to play an activist role in promoting Canadian business and investment with a major trade mission to China who is another major human rights violator, China’s treatment of Tibetans , the Chinese  they are also guilty of spying in Canada. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberals clearly now are guilty of dual standards, hypocrisy when it come to making money and human rights concerns. Money comes first to them too.

.

While  Stéphane Dion, Canada’s foreign affairs minister called on the Saudi’s to “protect human rights, respect peaceful expressions of dissent and ensure fairness in judicial proceedings”, Canada is particularly concerned that the kingdom’s execution of Sheikh Nimr which could “further inflame” sectarian tensions in the Middle East.   The move was condemned as a violation of human rights across the globe.

.

Still Canada has ‘no intention’ to cancel $15 bn arms deal with Saudi Arabia   despite Canada now condemning the executions of 47 prisoners in Saudi Arabia as the deal is the largest military exports contract in Canadian history. The biggest Saudi mass execution in decades – delivered by beheading and in a few cases firing squad – is  falsely not moving Ottawa to reconsider a massive deal to supply the Mideast country with armoured fighting vehicles. The transaction will support about 3,000 jobs in Canada for 14 years.  Activists allege Saudi Arabia sent Canadian-made fighting vehicles into Bahrain in 2011 to help quell a democratic uprising. The Canadian government does not deny this happened.  Critics including Project Ploughshares and Amnesty International have cited Riyadh’s abysmal human-rights record

.

The federal rules oblige Ottawa to examine whether arms shipment to countries with poor human rights records would endanger the local population.   Amnesty International has cited the kingdom’s “abysmal human rights record” and said the Canadian transaction would appear to violate their export-control regime. The Liberal government’s support for the Saudi deal comes even though they have pledged to sign the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, which regulates the flow of conventional weapons.

.

Canada and the US are falsely taking side with Saudi Arabia over Iran. The Justin Trudeau Liberal government are not the peace makers they had  lied and said they were during the elections. Relations between Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia and Shiite-dominated Iran have been strained for decades. The oil-rich foes have also been divided over the nearly five-year war in Syria, where Iran is backing the regime, and the conflict in Yemen where a Saudi-led coalition is battling Shiite rebels. Saudi Arabia has one of the worst human rights records in the world today.

.

Why the increase of Islamic wars today?

About 1,300 years ago after the death of the Prophet Muhammad, a succession crisis divided Muslims; and the widening schism continues to play out today. The dispute over how to replace Muhammad as the leader of the Muslim world after his death in 632 — and increasingly after the deaths of subsequent leaders — led to competing iterations of the Islamic faith, diverting followers into two major branches — the Sunni and the Shia with doctrinal distinctions created the schism. In History we also did have the non violent Catholics and the Orthodox split.

.

The Islamic split began very early history of Islam. Those pushing for selecting successors as caliph of the Islamic State and as the religious authority only from among the family of Muhammad became known as the Shia, from the Arabic for “the followers of Ali,” a reference to Muhammad’s son-in-law, Ali ibn Abi Talib. Those pushing for a selective process based on seeking the most qualified from the wider tribal context became known as the Sunni, from the Arabic for “people of the tradition.” This was really a political dispute, but that political dispute early on over who should continued over centuries and a theological sectarian split. A study in 2009 by the Pew Research Center says there were more than 1.57 billion Muslims around the world, about 23% of the world’s population. Of those, 10 to 13 percent were Shia and 87-90 percent were Sunni. It is largely where those Shia live that has become important. The majority of Shias (between 68 to 80 percent) live in just four countries: Iran, Pakistan, India and Iraq. In many other countries in the Persian Gulf, Shia remain a minority within Sunni dominated states. That makes theology increasingly also  political.

.

The Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), follows a distinctive variety of thirir own Islam whose beliefs do differ from the regional Sunni-Shiite tensions They literally want to overthrowthe world and replace it with thei own Islamic view of the future.  In 2014, after taking control of territory in the Sunni heartland of Iraq, ISIL proclaimed itself a caliphate, calling other states illegitimate and placing itself as the exclusive authority over the Islamic world, as if the world was the same as it was 1,300 years ago. SIL targets Shia Muslims as well as the West as it imposes its strict interpretations within territory it controls. ISIL wants to convince everyone the struggle is one epic clash of civilizations between the false Western religions and the Islamic World — with themselves as the true  representative of the world’s Muslims and as their religious authority — their caliph, the scholars said. The ISIL also carves its bloody notion of a new Islamic State world wide  lashing out at targets both within the Muslim world and in the West. They claim they do  have restored the Islamic empire called the caliphate as they believe that the caliphate is required in order to properly implement Islamic law and Islamic governance. They consider other systems of governance, even if there’s a Muslim sitting at the top, as illegitimate as long as the caliphate is absent. Members of the two branches if Islam, Sunni and the Shia had originally lived together peacefully and intermarried, but this highly politicized, the divide also becomes next “very heated” and now lead to calls for excommunication from the Islamic faith. In the current context of the self-declared Islamic State, that means death to all, even the.Sunni and the Shia Islamists

.

The notion of Shia now  being the dangerous iteration shifted through fundamentalist Sunni groups such as the Taliban, al Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also referred to as ISIS). For a while, exploiting the Sunni-Shia split served the interests of nations controlled by either branch. Saudi Arabia, is also guilty of forcefully exportating it’s Suuni Islamist ideology. The ISIL, Shia-Sunni split is terribaly important when the major backers of each branch are dominating influences in the same, sensitive region: Middle East, Iran and Saudi Arabia. The ISIL, Iran and Saudi Arabia has aquired loads of money and are  now also able to acquire, and to finance many  Their recruits, many ISIL recruits too..

.

 Saudi Arabia under King Salman is rejecting U.S. and European calls for human-rights reforms, King Salman surprised observers last year by moving quickly to position the kingdom even closer to the xenophobic Wahhabi religious establishment. These clerical leaders preach an intolerant form of Sunni Islam that denounces Shiites and other so-called heretics.

.

The source of Islamic extremism that promotes the sort of ugly brutality that is carried out by the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) lies also  with the fanatical Wahhabi strain of Islam,   rooted in Saudi Arabia.

.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar are the only countries in the world where Wahhabi Salafism is the state religion. However, this agenda does not stay in these states because it is actively propagated throughout the Muslim world. Over the last few decades, billions of dollars have been pumped into a huge campaign aimed at eroding the more moderate strains of Islam and replace them with the more extremist variety. If the West really wants to crack down on ISIS and make inroads into reducing the funding for the promotion of such violent extremism, then this means confronting Saudi Arabia, rather than continuing to bury heads in the sand.

.

The policy of Saudi Arabia is in total contradiction to the interests of the West”

.

And the war in Syria, being waged by Saudi-backed rebels against the Iranian-backed regime of Bashar al-Assad, has begun in the past few weeks to go Iran’s way, thanks to the intervention of Russian forces last fall in support of the Assad regime. Meanwhile the citizens of Saudi Arabia  o are beginning to feel the pinch from the deflated price of oil. Saudi subsidies that often are doled out to win popular support are being withdrawn and taxes are being raised to try to address the shortfall in available public funds.

.

The Western allies have increased their military campaigns against the terrorist group, those in neighbouring Arab nations, seemingly better-placed to weed them out,  have been mostly indifferent and why?   it basically comes down to Iran. “Iran and Saudi Arabia underpin everything going on,”  “The reality is that Islamic State is seen in the region as less of a problem than the prospect of an ascendant Iran,” The prospect of any meaningful military activity on the strength of 34 co-operating Islamic nations against the IS   here is thus still null.  “And there are certain countries that would like to see IS thrive as long as they don’t come and take their territory. Some are  even funding IS so it’s a real   can of worms.”   “Their concern about IS, while a real concern, will continue to take a back seat until such time they have reduced the threat of Iran by removing it as a principle player in the region, and by removing the Assad regime in Syria, providing that Islamic State forces do not overthrow the government in Baghdad.. ”

.

Germany said it would “critically review” its future arms exports to Saudi Arabia,  Germany now has  warned Saudi Arabia  that  Berlin would review military exports to the oil-rich nation in light of Riyadh’s mass executions of prisoners two days earlier. Germany has  already refrained from selling the Heckler & Koch G36 assault rifles, battle tanks,  and other offensive military weapons to Saudi Arabia.   In the first six months of 2015, Germany permitted the export of arms worth over 178 million euros ($192.56 million) to Saudi Arabia. Germany is the world’s fourth-largest arms exporter, with sales valued at roughly $4 billion in the first half of 2015.  Exports to Saudi Arabia last year included patrol boats, all-terrain vehicles, aerial refuelling equipment, drones and parts for combat aircraft and armoured vehicles. “A moratorium on arms exports would be the right signal now – business as usual is not an option,” CDU politician Michael Hennrich, who is head of the German-Arabic parliamentarian group .

.

PRESSURE is also now building on Britain to halt all weapons sales to Saudi Arabia after Germany pledged to “review” its trade links with the kingdom. Amnesty International estimates arms worth £1.75bn were sold to the kingdom in the first half of 2015 alone.  Britain has long been accused of fuelling that conflict by trading weapons and machinery with the Arab kingdom.  Saudi Arabia has been a major buyer of UK weapons since the 1960s, with around 240 UK Ministry of Defence civil servants and military personnel working in the UK and Saudi Arabia to support contracts between the two countries. “UK bombs and fighter jets have been central to the destruction of Yemen. As long as Saudi enjoys the political and military support of the most powerful Western nations, then it will continue oppressing its own population and those of neighbouring states.” As  the continued sale of arms from the UK to Saudi Arabia is illegal, immoral and indefensible.   “Thousands of civilians have been killed in Saudi-led airstrikes, and there’s a real risk that misery was ‘made in Britain’. The UK must halt these arms sales immediately.”

France has now also condemned Saudi Arabia’s execution of 47 prisoners, including a Shiite cleric, and voiced concerns about growing tensions in the Middle East following riots in Shiite-dominated Iran. France opposes the death penalty “in all places and circumstances.

In Belgium, the  Minister-President Geert Bourgeois, announced  that he has refused an application for an export licence to ship weapons to Saudi Arabia.

A bad Liberal is equal to a bad Conservative.

Couillard_Phillipe- premier

 

When I read this..

”  With a pledge to inject $1-billion (U.S.) cash into Bombardier Inc. to get its flagship C Series jet to market, the province of Quebec has emerged as the company’s fairy godmother”

.

   QUEBEC — Years of government budget slashing, layer upon layer, has resulted in a steady decline in the quality of Quebec’s health and social service system ” 

.

”    Proposed Quebec welfare rules carry unfair penalties, advocates warn.  A Quebec government plan to introduce new welfare rules to get people back into the workforce has anti-poverty advocates warning the measures could leave many even more destitute. The recently tabled bill aims to get first-time welfare recipients into a job program quickly, offering an extra few hundred dollars every month if they’re employed for a year. But those who don’t participate would see their benefits cut in half to $308 per month.       ”  http://montrealgazette.com/news/quebec/proposed-quebec-welfare-rules-carry-unfair-penalties-advocates-warn

.

I thought  all this was a conservative platform rather..  what Liars the Liberals have become, they were not elected for these  cuts, gifts.

.

The governments lie when they say they care about the citizens, Liberals or Conservatives too, they support the establishment rather, the rich to get richer.. as that is their own goals, desires too

.

a Bad liberal is the same as a Bad conservative

.

Now why is it the Quebec government does not go after the many, many tax evaders, then it would have money for social welfare… yes the  tax evaders such as Renovators, Car Mechanics, Property managers, truck drivers,, new immigrants,  etc,

 

And Don’t despise the poor people otherwise you will become poor like Alberta has.. 

.

I REMEMBER WHEN MANY ARROGANT ALBERTANS, POLITICIANS  USED TO FALSELY BOAST ON THE NET ABOUT THEIR PROSPERITY.. and I would reply they need to be really now more considerate of the poor people and the rest of Canada for they too will ONE DAY  be on social aid, and EVEN asking other Canadians to help them.. it is funny how reality  comes to pass with time even in Alberta.

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2015/05/08/what-happened-in-alberta-is-no-surprise-to-the-honest-decent-folks-socialists-elected-in-canadas-oil-patch/

.

IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE THAT THE BAD GUYS DO NOT LIKE THE TABLE TURNED AGAINST THEM.. TO BAD FOR THEM.. I LIVED IN ALBERTA FOR 15 YEARS AND I SAW THAT THEY THEY HAD FALSELY REFUSED TO SEE THE HAND WRITING ON THE WALL.. TOO OFTEN TOO.

.

(Mat 7:3 KJV)  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5  Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

.

Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit;  (Jer 9:6 KJV)  

.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7

.

The Governments, Politicians supposedly caring  about own good welfare firstly, is the best joke of the year too, in reality rather they are working really hard everyday too looking first after themselves , and undeniably clearly living high on the hog at our expense, and that even includes too many of our bad civil and public servants too now.. WHERE ARE THE POLICE HERE TOO WHEN YOU NEED THEM??? And accountability, openness, transparency are more Stephen Harper’s conservative government lies that need to be prosecuted as well.. Under the new  federal Conservatives the civil an public servants are not being managed any better and they still too often waste, abuse our tax dollars and this is unacceptable. Mostly Pretentious and  useless RCMP,  Consumer Protection, Health Canada, and Revenue Canada need to really shape up still now too. 

.

And what about still dealing with our elected political members, civil and public servants who too often have abused the tax payers generosity now as well, they also seem still to get away with it..

.

THE POLICE, RCMP, MINISTERS, GOVERNMENT CONSULTANTS THESE DAYS, IMMIGRANT CONSULTANTS TOO  IT SEEMS , SEEM TO BE ANOTHER WORD FOR ABUSERS, THIEVES, LIARS CROOKS. SO WE ALL NEED TO DEAL WITH IT MORE EFFECTIVELY NOW TOO.

.

Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves very ones best interest… too often still missing in the PROFESSIONAL BODIES, EVEN IN THE RCMP, police   forces, churches, ALL GOVERNMENTS  as well it seems too.

.

”   Among the claims made by women in the Radio Canada report, one of the most common was that RACIAL  MONTREAL  cops would take women they considered troublemakers into their squad cars during the winter, drop them off way outside of town and force them to walk home in the cold. Advocates who’ve been calling for an inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women say the contentious relationship between law enforcement and indigenous people should also be examined. ”

.

Citizens are still calling for change in   local speed traps. I think over the years they have just tacked on additional fines, or put up red light cameras, or doing one thing or another to try and generate revenue for their city.  Cities falsely are using traffic citations to fund city government.  Some cities it’s upwards of 8% to 10% of their revenue instead of .5 percent  is generated by fines and fees.    Many cities   have used fines and fees to fund a large portion of their budget, police budgets included . Too many Police Department  even have an illegal quota system that requires  officers to write three traffic tickets per day and make at least one arrest every two days. A  quota encourages officers to ticket people regardless of whether motorists’  behaviour is actually endangering the public or could be corrected with a warning. Traffic fines affect the poor and are ineffective against those they are to be really targeting, the rich. Most   cops saw their fellow residents less as citizens to protect than as “potential offenders and sources of revenue.”  Causing  “breakdown of trust” between people, police, governments and courts.  Missouri cities can no longer treat their citizens like ATMs,  as the state’s governor signed a bill capping how much money local governments can collect from traffic tickets and fines.” For people who have lived in these communities that fear they are going to be pulled over and harassed because that city needs money, that’s going to change,”

Undeniably

Now the relationship between Russia and Ukraine is still deadlocked. The most immediate issue between the two is the fact that Ukraine is a county of thugs and thieves still.

The  problems will go unresolved for some time, even the standoff over eastern Ukraine, which is likely to continue well into next decades.

The challenge to Russia’s interests in its own backyard by the initial expansion of NATO is responsible for this renewed Cold War mentality and belligerence from Russia. Pushing NATO as far east as geopolitically possible is reminiscent of the neocon fever dream that brought us the invasion of Iraq and the resulting chaos that followed.

Russia still has a major position in the world that they do seek to re-establish. Moscow is “engaging in a large-scale military modernisation project with the intention of projecting power into Asia” and “its relationship with China, Asia has deepened considerably”.

Your Internet provider could be short-changing you

rcmp ()

We all should be really concerned now whether Internet service providers  such as Bell, Verizon are misleading customers with slower-than-advertised speeds.  Your  Internet provider could be mostly  short-changing  You, consumers by charging them for faster broadband speeds and failing to deliver the speeds being advertised. Now  each company should  provide copies of all the disclosures they have made to customers, as well as copies of any testing they may have done to study their Internet speeds. We deserve the Internet speeds they pay for. But, it turns out, too  many of us may be paying for one thing, and getting another. It seems they all still lie, are guilty of false, misleading advertisements. Most  broadband providers claiming to offer super-fast Internet connections may be rather delivering service that is slower than advertised.  It is immoral  that the broadband speeds that you pay for are so unsubstantiated  in reality. 

THERE ARE TOO MANY PIGS IN THE INTERNET, CELL PHONE PARLOUR STILL

BELL HAS TO CAP IT’S  INTERNET CUSTOMERS’ USAGES, DOWNLOADS AND  OFTEN TOO, TO MAKE THE ROOM FOR THE WIRELESS PHONES AS WELL . BELL REALLY DOES NOT HAVE EXISTING ADEQUATE CAPACITY FOR BOTH, NOT EVEN FOR THE HIGH SPEED INTERNET SERVICES IN ALL AREAS OF CANADA. IT IS CLEARLY TOO CHEAP TO SPEND CAPITAL TO DO THIS ?

 WHEN IT NOW COMES TO THE ISP, INTERNET PRICING THERE FIRSTLY ARE STILL NO VIABLE ARGUMENTS, OR PROOF THAT THE OVERALL NETWORKING SYSTEM CAPACITIES ARE BEING EVEN NOW OVER BURDENED BY A FEW PERSONS, HEAVY USERS FOR RATHER SOLELY THE MAIN UNDENIABLE PROBLEM IS THAT TELECOMMUNICATION GIANTS FIRMS THEMSELVES HAVE TOO OFTEN MISLED, DO MISLEAD THE PUBLIC AS TO THE DEGREE OF THEIR ACTUAL SYSTEM CAPABILITIES, SPEEDS AND EVEN THE RELIABILITY OF THEIR SERVICES NOW AS WELL AS I HAVE EVEN DETAILED THIS FOR YEARS NOW TOO.

the 10 Commandments are still applicable today for all, corporations and business persons included

Bell Canada  to pay a penalty of $10 million for making misleading advertising claims

Bell, Shaw and Rogers still can’t seem to provide good customer services! why?  It is basically cause they still do not care for the customers as they still are too greedy solely for the customer’s  money..

The top 3 “Canada’s Worst Cell Phone Bill” belong to Bell, Rogers, Virgin and next no matter how their spin  doctors lie about it, make false promises to change it they all are still bad in reality.

A  probe should also be focused on so-called interconnection arrangements, or contractual deals that Internet service providers strike with other networks for the mutual exchange of data. customers paying a premium for higher speeds may be experiencing a disruption in their service thanks to technical problems and business disputes over the interconnection agreements.  The  Internet service provider interconnection has a substantial impact on consumer Internet performance – sometimes too  severely. It should also review  the actual speeds delivered  to consumers over “the last mile,” a term that refers to the point where a telecommunication chain reaches a retail consumer’s devices.

The  customers who are paying a premium fee for higher internet speeds could be experiencing a disruption to their service due to technical issues brought about by business disputes in these interconnection deals. According to a study conducted last year [PDF] by the Measurement Lab Consortium (M-Lab), customers can suffer from slow internet speeds because of these relationships. There is a strong “possibility that interconnection arrangements may in some instances render irrelevant any benefit” of paying for a “premium” option

Bell it is a poorly regulated monopoly ..

BELL or BCE HAS SADLY NOW BEEN GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER.. WITH MUCH TOO MUCH FALSE ADVERTISING, CONSUMER ABUSES, PRICE GOUGING, POOR SUPPORT SERVICES…. ANY DOUBTS AS TO HOW BAD BELL IS.. NOTICE THAT MY BELL POSTING TEND TO SAY IN THE TOP TEN OF ALL MY SUBJECT POSTS.

Stephen Harper’s Undeniable Acts

stephen_harper

In 2006, Conservative Party leader Stephen Harper came to power on the promise of transparency, accountability,a better and more open, honest government following the bad Liberal government’s past sponsorship scandal, which involved the awarding of government contracts to Liberal-friendly advertising firms in the wake of the 1995 referendum on Quebec separation.

No such promises next were kept by Prime Minister Stephen Harper..Rather under Prime Minister Stephen Harper the flow of information has dried up, elected MPs have become mere votes to be counted and the upper chamber has been set alight by an expenses-and-ethics scandal

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has instituted unprecedented controls over the flow of public information, including requests under the federal Access-to-Information Act, the muzzling of government scientists and responses to requests from journalists seeking comment from the government

Prime Minister Stephen Harper turned Ottawa into an immoral lying Senate, Government, a partisan swamp and Prime Minister Stephen Harper has led the most secretive, divisive and hyper-partisan government in Canada’s history. Prime Minister Stephen Harper subordinates were just as bad as all the other parties too

Quebec Liberal leaders, a bad sense of what bad people are like. Why?

plq_logo_ Why is it now that the Quebec Liberal leaders, are known to associate with the really bad persons.

.

Lu Chan Khuong  had this year become the first elected female president of the  Quebec Bar Association  and she is also the partner of Marc Bellemare, former minister of justice under the Liberal government of Jean Charest.  The board of directors of the Quebec Bar asked the president, demanded her  to resign on Wednesday and suspended her after she refused  after was  reported she shoplifted jeans. In its statement, the board indicated that Khuong confirmed being the subject of a complaint for shoplifting in a store in Laval, and that her file was processed under the “program to deal non-judicially with certain criminal offences committed by adults” in 2014. The non-judicial handling of her  offence can be decided on by the Directeur des poursuites criminelles et pénales when the act is a minor offence that doesn’t pose a real threat to society. The decision is only taken when it has determined that the fault attributed to the offender is an offence that can be proven. Diverting the charges is often offered in exchange for community service.

.

59-year McGill University Health Centre CEO Arthur Porter, the former Canadian spy-agency head and McGill University hospital administrator  has died in a Panama   of cancer on Tuesday , where he was in jail fighting extradition to Canada to face fraud charges.  The Crown wants proof Arthur Porter died in Panama . At the peak of his power, Arthur Porter enjoyed the rarefied luxuries of a Caribbean villa and a chauffeur-driven Bentley, boasting of contacts with heads of state from around the world  — including no less than the present Premier of Quebec,Philippe Couillard .  The Quebec prosecutor handling the multi-million dollar fraud case involving Arthur Porter says she wants Quebec police to verify that he is actually dead, she wants to see official reports verifying accused fraudster’s death Tuesday. Two Quebec anti-corruption officers sent to Panama have been assured  Arthur Porter really is dead.  “The visual identification of the body of Arthur Porter turned out to be sufficient for us to formally confirm his death,” Just to be extra sure, however, UPAC investigators did take fingerprints from the deceased as well as DNA samples.  A week after Porter was first reported dead, of lung cancer in a Panama hospital, the legal case against him is now officially closed.

.

But  ” the investigation into the McGill University Health Centre bribery scandal will continue, and accusations still stand against Porter’s seven alleged accomplices. Porter, along with his right-hand man at the MUHC, Yanaï Elbaz, was accused of rigging the bidding process to build the $1.3-billion superhospital in exchange for some $22.5 million in bribes. Also accused are several executives from SNC-Lavalin, which “won” the contract, as well as those who allegedly laundered the money — like Porter’s widow, Pamela Porter, who pleaded guilty in December for her part in the scheme. So far, some $17.5 million in assets have been frozen.”

.

Arthur Porter  who so assiduously courted politicians —  including Philippe Couillard (when he served as health minister in the mid-2000s) — later became a political pariah after a warrant was issued for his arrest more than two years ago on corruption charges. Arthur Porter, M.D., also the former dismissed CEO of the Detroit Medical Center, Dr. Porter, whose management style had already raised questions during this job, at the Detroit Medical Centre, was later charged in one of the largest corruption and fraud investigations in Canadian history.  the  Police allege  Porter received $11.25 million in secret commissions for rigging the contract to build the new McGill University Health Centre superhospital in SNC-Lavalin’s favour.   The Crown alleges Porter received part of a $22.5-million payment from Montreal-based engineering giant SNC-Lavalin in order to fix the call for tenders to ensure the firm received the lucrative contract. Porter left the DMC to head McGill University Health Centre‘s hospital network, where he was administrator from 2004 to 2011. In late 2011.

.

Porter also quit the MUHC amid concerns he was involved in too many private business deals. He returned to the Bahamas, where he announced in January 2013 that he had lung cancer. Four months later, Porter and his wife were arrested by Interpol agents at Panama’s international airport on the MUHC warrants. Among Porter’s belongings was a passport from Sierra Leone which he claimed gave him diplomatic status.  In total, nine people were charged in the alleged MUHC scheme, including two other former MUHC executives and three ex-SNC-Lavalin ones. Porter was the only one not to appear in Quebec to formally answer to the charges. Porter moved to Nassau, Bahamas, just ahead of a lawsuit filed by McGill and charges by Quebec prosecutors of conspiracy, embezzlement, fraud against the government, breach of trust and related crimes related to the construction of a $1.3 billion “super hospital” in Montreal. Porter, a medical doctor and cancer specialist,   was arrested on an international warrant in Panama City in May 2013,  while in La Joya prison he was fighting extradition to Canada .

.

In the  Summer of 2005, Porter flies to Baltimore with Premier Jean Charest and Health Minister Philippe Couillard to persuade the Shriners at their annual convention to keep their pediatric orthopedic hospital in Montreal. Their gambit works and marks the beginning of a working relationship between Couillard and Porter.

.

Porter  founded a consulting company with Couillard in 2009, almost a year after Couillard left public office.

.

On  June 15:,  2009  Porter and Couillard were elected directors of mining company Canadian Royalties, almost a year after Couillard resigned as Quebec’s health minister and as a member of the National Assembly. The two sat on the board of Canadian Royalties until Dec. 16, 2009.

Quebec’s anti-corruption task force suspects Porter and four high-profile  executives involved in the construction of the McGill University Superhospital  were part of a massive fraud conspiracy.UPAC issued arrest warrants Wednesday morning for Arthur Porter, Pierre  Duhaime, Riadh Ben Aissa, Yanai Elbaz , Jeremy Morris. UPAC confirmed  Wednesday that Elbaz – the former associate director general of the MUHC – is in  custody and will be charged Thursday. Duhaime — the former CEO of SNC-Lavalin – will turn himself in to Surete du  Quebec headquarters Thursday morning, He has already been charged with fraud. Ben  Aissa — another former executive at SNC-Lavalin — has already been arrested  and questioned by police for his possible role in other plots. All five are wanted for fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, and related charges.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/02/27/high-profile-executives-involved-in-the-construction-of-the-mcgill-university-superhospital-are-charged/

Quebec’s police task force on corruption is probing the billion-dollar contract for McGill Montreal mega-hospital awarded to a consortium led by Montreal engineering giant SNC Lavalin Group Inc. SNC-led consortium had won the McGill University Health Centre contract. Police raid the McGill University Health Centre . Up until six months ago, the hospital project had been overseen by Riadh Ben Aissa, a former head of SNC’s construction division, and also a central figure in an ongoing scandal. One of SNC’s original subcontractors in the project was a company controlled by construction magnate Antonio (Tony) Accurso – a controversial figure who now is also facing fraud and corruption charges. The hospital deal was put together under the watch of the previous chief executive of the health centre, Arthur Porter who left his own job under a cloud late last year. Arthur Porter had been appointed chair of the federal government’s security-intelligence watchdog agency, when his African business dealings with an arms dealer were revealed. Dr. Porter stepped down from both jobs. The Quebec government has earmarked $2.35-billion for an effort to reconstruct Montreal hospitals, the lion’s share going to the McGill University Health Centre campus. “Quebec’s anti-corruption unit has put several high-profile figures in its crosshairs since being established last year. It has arrested construction magnates such as Mr. Accurso and Paolo Catania, as well as Frank Zampino, a former city councillor who was the right-hand man of Montreal Mayor Gérald Tremblay.”

Not much of a surprise? The tip of the iceberg is being revealed only as  the overall depth of corruption will take much more time apparently to uncover, corruptions that likley permeates the whole project. Birds of feathers tend to flock together. And no one should tell us that  these initial suspected persons, now  were even  just isolated individuals acting on their own without the vast help and knowledge of any others now too. Higher education never insures one’s good moral standings.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/26/mcgill-administrators-likley-run-their-hospitals-the-same-way/

Former CSIS watchdog Arthur Porter arrested in Panama .Arthur Porter, the well-connected oncologist and hospital administer whom Prime Minister Stephen Harper appointed three years ago to oversee Canada’s spy agency, was arrested with his wife in Panama on charges including fraud against the Quebec government relating to his alleged role in the handling of a $1.3-billion Montreal hospital construction and maintenance contract, awarded three years ago to scandal-plagued engineering giant SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. The head of Quebec’s anti-corruption task force made the announcement Monday evening. In a written statement, Robert Lafreniere said the arrest was conducted after an investigation — code name Project Lauréat — by the Sureté du Québec, the RCMP and the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol).Dr. Porter and his wife, Pamela Porter, are in police custody. Mrs. Porter is accused of handling the products of crime and con   Efforts are being made to extradite the couple to Canada, according to the statement.

Couillard  had   now   distanced himself   from  Porter,   many  years  late..

.

Wife pleads guilty to laundering money for former spy watchdog Arthur Porter .The wife of Arthur Porter, the accused fraudster and former head of the federal spy watchdog, has admitted to laundering millions of dollars stolen from the public purse. Yet Dr.  Arthur Porter, and  still insist the whole event is a lie, perverse fabrication, they are  not guilty of any wrong doing.. and Dr. P. Couillard?, 

.
Bad Dr Porter’s relationship with Dr. P. Couillard, who was Quebec’s health minister  and now the Premier of Quebec too, at the time, appears to be far more extensive than previously thought.  Couillard, claims he did not know that his long time business partner was a crook must have really really bad jugdement  or is lying.  Not only did Couillard and Porter go on fishing trips when Porter served as chief executive officer of the MUHC, he says, but Porter claims that Couillard phoned him every day for political advice.  http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Arthur+Porter+dishes+dirt+Harper+Couillard/10188705/story.html
Yes the same person Couillard could not spot a crook even as he worked with him for years..  but I can work with a person one day and likely tell you if he is a crook, immoral or not..  and that is why I tend to spell Liberals as Lieberals..
.
The really bad  Liberals  including DR Philippe Couillard  who had  allowed this province to go down in a mess, corruptions THEY STILL REALLY do not deserve to be a governing party ever. I am not a politician, but as an ordinary Citizen I knew that Dr Porter was likely clearly corrupt, the MUHC corrupted, and the city of Montreal as well and I had objected to it. And if Pauline Marois and her separatist  party fail to address the corruptions now properly, instead of sweeping it under the table as has been done wrongfully  for decades, they too  do not deserve to be a governing party ever Both the Liberals and the PQ parties had failed to properly deal with English language laws already too..
.
Too many persons really cannot face the reality there are things in their life that need serious, drastic changes. These people in denial are the ones who often need professional help for their own short comings, sickness. Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about their own unacceptable acts. Corruptions occurs now Not just in Churches, amongst the police, politicians, civil and public servants. These People in the state of false denials, clearly also who lie often, they do now also tend to have severe personal, mental disorders next even cause one tends to eventually believe next ones own lies as being the truth, and they can no  longer differentiate their own lies from reality, the truth. By their false denials Who is fooling whom? You cannot fool all the people all the time and now matter how smart you are there is still someone more wiser who can see the truth still too. . Narcissistic, selfish, self centered Mental Disorders too evident now even in many of the so called Professionals even bad pastors, leaders leads these persons to dwell in self-absorption, fantasy, illusion, where she or he has exaggerated claims to talents, importance, or specialness, manifesting evidence of a need for constant admiration from others, a lack of empathy for all others, persistent in this too, have rigid personality traits and coping styles, clearly inflexible, do show a hypersensitivity to any criticism , defeat or negative realities thus they rather are pathological in denial by the their falsity, contrived replacement of the truths which they still must face eventually . These SEVERE PERSONALITY disorders are generally personally ongoing too leading to more impaired social and/or occupational functioning and can make it difficult to pinpoint a clear dividing line between their pathology and their so called normality. Most of these people with their personality disorders may not perceive that there is anything wrong with their behavior and thus they are not motivated to change it. It is important to note that these personality disorders are considered to have their onset in late adolescence or early adulthood and they alone are responsible for it too.
.
Again false Denial, it is very   common when many an individual, even amongst so called professionals, even in pastors now included, are openly confronted with their own wrong doings, that they resort to a false denial. When confronted with the truth the denier they often respond with a similar personal counter attack remark as ”you are crazy”. “I reject your reality… and substitute my own.” Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about themselves still though. Sadly it is a negative natural human tendency to devolve into denial.” It’s not just a moral compass that’s lacking, but the ability to honest, or to stand apart. Denial often comes out of a false pride, a fear of being openly exposed as being wrong. Denial is a false convenient escape, excuse for inaction for persons now facing a situation that requires a decision or action that conflicts with his or her established past policy. Denial too often can be further disastrous upon themselves and others.. for denial is not seeing data at all or seeing it and coming to an erroneous conclusion within oneself. One’s false denial is often based on a false assumption of one’s past great success and often precedes their own severe personal failure next due to a personal disconnect with real life. Illustrated fully by the story of the Emperor with new clothes. .
.
False Denial (also called abnegation) is a often defense mechanism in which a person is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it instead, insisting that it is not true despite what may be overwhelming evidence, a mechanism of the immature mind that conflicts with the ability to learn from and cope with reality. The subject may now deny the reality of the unpleasant fact altogether (simple denial), admit the fact but deny its seriousness (minimization) or admit both the fact and seriousness but deny responsibility (transference). The concept of denial is particularly related to the denial of one’s addiction to alcohol for example, or to one slandering others, abusing them stealing, lying.. their denial or their minimization of their own wrong doings is the essential part of what enables them next to  continue his or her behavior in the face of evidence that, to an outsider, that is overwhelming. “The American Heart Association cites denial as a principal reason that treatment of a heart attack is delayed. Because the symptoms are so varied, and often have other potential explanations, the opportunity exists for the patient to deny the emergency, often with fatal consequences. It is common for patients to delay mammograms or other tests because of a fear of cancer, even though this is clearly maladaptive.”
.
Types of Denial include now Denial of fact: This form of denial is where someone avoids a fact by lying. This lying can take the form of an outright falsehood (commission), leaving out certain details in order to tailor a story (omission), This form of denial involves avoiding personal responsibility by blaming, minimizing or justifying. Denial of responsibility: Denial of impact: avoiding thinking about or understanding the harms their behavior have caused to themselves or others. Denial of awareness: they do not admit any previous awareness of the negative reality. Denial of cycle: Denial of cycle is where a person avoids looking at their decisions leading up to an event or does not consider their pattern of decision making and how harmful behavior is repeated. Denial of denial: This latter form of denial typically overlaps with all of the other forms of denial, but involves more self-delusion. People in a false denial are really nuts, delusional..
.
There are tools and practices that we can implement to overcome the psychological trap of anyone’s false denial. The Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.

Only at elections time it seems the citizens count

0liars-abusers

We seem to get tidbits of citizen concern  information out of Ottawa, STILL EVEN from the Conservative Harper government,  mostly merely when it  is near the election times, when it seems we only count and they now more seriously  do want to get our votes..

.

Even Prime Minister Stephen Harper by his approaches, objectives, commitments, seems to be trying to reassure firstly his selected elements in his base thus to be assured of their support and votes and too often. “It’s all about winning votes” No I do not think that Trudeau is or will be any better as well.. “ but Harper is so focused on winning votes of particular groups, he does not seem to realize  that winning votes in one group may cancel out votes in another group. How about a leader who is looking at the big picture, like an economy that works for everybody, like a clean environment that benefits everybody, like a justice system that treats everyone fairly? That’s what I’ll vote for.”

.

And what about a leader that actually keeps his past election promises? of transparency, accountability and much more?  Even Stephen Harper has not been great at that as well..

.

IF THE NEW CONSERVATIVE  MINISTERS  AND PRIME MINISTER STEPHEN HARPER NOW  ARE LIARS  AND YOU CANNOT TRUST THEM TO TELL THE TRUTH  MOSTLY THEN WHAT OTHER  MINISTERS  CAN YOU PRESENTLY TRUST?

.

Now why are the clearly foolish Canadian  justice ministers, cops, so foolish still  that they do now even think that they can turn the clock backwards and continue again doing the very same bad things now that they all have even been exposed for what they really are world wide even.. they are bad people who abuse citizens and obstruct justice and do need to be put into prison themselves.

VANCOUVER — Many years later the RCMP officer who stunned Robert Dziekanski with a Taser at Vancouver’s airport lied at a public inquiry into the Polish immigrant’s death, a judge ruled. Const. Kwesi Millington fired his Taser multiple times after he and three other officers were summoned to Vancouver’s airport in October 2007. Dziekanski, who spoke no English, had been throwing furniture in the international terminal.  Millington’s verdict marks the first time a judge has concluded that one of the officers lied. Another Mountie, Const. Bill Bentley, was acquitted in 2013, while two other cases have not yet concluded.  The Crown alleged the officers colluded on a story to tell homicide investigators and write in their police notes in an attempt to heighten the threat that Dziekianski posed. Prosecutors argued the officers’ statements and notes all contained similar errors, proving they worked together. The Crown further alleged the officers met in the Vancouver area in the days or weeks before testifying at the inquiry in early 2009 to plan their testimony. A witness, whose ex-husband is Bentley’s cousin, told the court the officers met at her home, but the defence presented telephone records, credit card receipts and other evidence to cast doubt on her testimony. The judge  noted that the officer’s errors all exaggerated the threat Dziekanski posed.

Constable Sebastien Grenier was suspended with pay last April while police investigated allegations that the officer had handed out bogus speeding tickets in the Eastern Townships.

A constable with B.C.’s Abbotsford Police Department has been criminally charged and 16 other officers are under investigation for allegations related to the integrity of statements used in a number of criminal cases to obtain search warrants. Const. Christopher Nicholson has been charged with  breach of trust, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to traffic a controlled substance, the Office of the Police Complaints Commissioner (OPCC) said in a statement released Wednesday.  During the Vancouver Police Department investigation, it says it uncovered further allegations of misconduct against 16 other members of the APD and a total of 148 accusations of misconduct against seventeen members of the Abbotsford Police Department. The accusations include corrupt practice, deceit, and neglect of duty. The OPCC says it has not been able to adequately determine the extent to which prosecutions may have been compromised “due to the lack of adequate disclosure from the police. Deputy Police Complaint Commissioner Rollie Woods says the officers are accused of making up information to secure search warrants. “The concerns raised have an impact of the interplay between key institutional stakeholders within the criminal justice system which include the federal prosecution service, judicial officers and the police. Furthermore, what remains an active concern to the OPCC is the extent to which the search warrants in issue may have contributed to potentially unsafe prosecutions,” reads a statement from the office.

Canada does not have the best Medicare, not even close.. why?

conser-1

Canada’s health-care system compared to other public systems world wide is a let down and the US private system also doesn’t score very well internationally.

.

There are many , many reasons for a start the Doctors and nurses who kill patients, neglect them do not face any negative consequences at all for a start.

.

I have had many American tell me in the US that we have a good Medical system because it is free.. Being free does not  insure a good medical care system if Doctors and Nurses are rarely supervised. The public-private Swiss health system comes first.

.

The Canadian  system also like the U.S. system does  sucks up loads of  money all without producing discernibly better outcomes.

.

In most categories, Canada comes between the middle and the bottom – except in spending, where Canada is in the upper third, per capital.

.

It is the  politicians crap that  Canada having the best Medicare system in the world.

.

” Among 11 countries, Canada ranks last or second-last in getting same- or next-day doctor appointments, finding after-hours care, waiting for more than two months for a specialist appointment or four months for elective surgery.” Getting to see God can be a real nightmare..

.

Canadian patients spend more time in Hospitals per stay, than anywhere else except Japan. Why?  There are too few doctors to look after the patients, the medical system relies on interns  in training and nurses mostly still for the average patient care. Having more beds will not help .

.

Governments, and Hospitals are working  next, now on kicking more people out of hospitals, to  get them out more quickly and still not rather insuring they get helped medically.

.

What does the public think of Medicare? You have to  firstly get admitted to the hospital to find out you are not getting the best care  there possible.

.

When people ask for  “fundamental changes,” what do they mean..  They firstly do want the bad doctors and bad nurses, bad  hospital administrators, fired, discharged not covered up over and over again..

.

The problem is there is not only a lack of accountabilty, but the money is not properly managed.. Ottawa transfers $32-billion a year to the provinces for health care,  but how well is it spent? Many useless  medical test are done in hospitals still as well.

.

So “Ottawa spends another $7.2-billion for specialized health care, including $2.5-billion for aboriginals, $1.1-billion for veterans, $571-million for the military and $614-million for the Public Health Agency. Ottawa also spends money to sponsor medical research.” So what?  Putting more money in pails full of holes is wasteful..

The biggest factor in crash fatalities, OPP

 pm stephen harper beer 4

In spite of the fact only 21 percent of deaths in car crashes were caused by speeding the police issue the most resources, tickets, fines on “speeding” still.

Driver inattention the biggest factor in crash fatalities, OPP say Drawing on 10 years of data from investigations, the Ontario Provincial Police are concluding the majority of fatal collisions on OPP-patrolled roads and highways are a result of poor driving behaviour or driver error.  There were 287 deaths from 265 fatal crashes in 2014.  According to the OPP, 73 were related to distracted driving, 46 were related to impaired driving, 61 were related to speeding, and 50 were related to not wearing a seat belt or a helmet.  There are other factors in collision fatalities as well, police said, and they include animal-related collisions, a driver being under medical distress, and so on. But those factors are not a part of the majority.

.

Though for the past seven months Saskatchewan drivers have faced fines for texting or emailing while driving, three Regina driving instructors have seen little decrease. In 2013, there were 5,745 collisions related to distracted driving, according to SGI; 32 people died and nearly 2,000 were injured. In a recent CAA poll, Canadians ranked texting while driving as their top road safety concern, above drinking and driving, running red lights, speeding and other concerns.

http://www.leaderpost.com/technology/Texting+while+driving+concern+Sask+Poll/10798577/story.html

.

Alcohol-related charges up 37% from last January: OPP The number of alcohol-related charges is up in January compared to the same time last year, according to statistics released by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP). Police laid 118 impaired driving charges in January, versus 86 charges in January of 2014, which is an increase of 37 per cent.
.

Meanwhile, data from Statistics Canada (1986 to 2011) shows the vast majority of those charged with drinking and driving are male. In 2011, there were 90,277 impaired driving incidents with 82.4 per cent charged being males and 19.6 per cent females. However, there’s been a steady increase in impaired female drivers since the 1980s, while the number of impaired male drivers has decreased slightly.  Statistics Canada numbers from 2011 also show the highest impaired driving rates occurred within the 20 to 24 age group. The rates decrease with increasing age. Also, drivers under 35 years old account for two-thirds of those accused of impaired driving causing death and causing injury in 2011.

.
Too many people Canada wide do now often complain about still being harassed, bullied by Traffic cops and getting unnecessary traffic tickets, especially it seems in Ontario, Alberta too. Cops are no angels themselves for sure. 
https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/?s=speeding
.
It has been my own real witness, experiences the last 50 years that some of the most crooked persons in Canada who firstly do deserve to be jailed, ticketed are the much too many of our bad civil and public servants, bad politicians, bad cops, bad RCMP now as well, and do include here the bad doctors and bad nurses, bad hospital administrators, bad justice ministers, bad health ministers, bad consumer affairs ministers as well….
 about 85 percent of the major, real criminals Canada wide now too are never jailed, incarcerated because the too often buck passing and useless  police themselves firstly are bad, they are too lay and clearly incompetent to do their jobs, so they the police do compensate for this by wrongfully giving out money revenue generating traffic tickets to meet their false quotas now even.. for the cops are too often crooked now.. now their supervisors are not any better.

Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird

wolves in sheep clothing

I was reading the many New media comments about John Baird is unexpectedly  leaving federal politics they sounded mostly like obituaries where you do not say anything bad, negative about the dead. Baird might be a rat leaving a sinking ship?

.

Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird is unexpectedly  leaving federal politics. Sources close to him with direct knowledge of his plans say they expect Mr. Baird to resign his cabinet seat on Tuesday and soon step down as MP for his Ottawa West-Nepean riding. Mr. Baird, 45, is  one of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s   senior  political lieutenants  but undeniably still  Employment Minister Jason Kenney is arguably the cabinet minister with one of the biggest responsibilities on his plate right now.. Sources say the veteran politician wants to start a new career in the private sector. “The minister is looking to turn the page on 20 years of public service and like anyone in public office is looking for new opportunities,” a source close to the minister said.” Really? sounds like there is much more to it..  “After spending the past few years listening to Mr. Baird going out of his way to legitimize the banality and brutality of a 50-year-old Israeli occupation…  He should first apologize to his own citizenry, many of whom are God-loving Jews, Christians and Muslims who would never condone nor cheer for an Israeli government that stretches support to Israeli settlers who attack churches and mosques. Mr. Baird should apologize for his active encouragement of Israel’s brute and ugly occupation and its apartheid policies. He should apologize for failing to promote those things Canadians hold dear such as freedom, dignity and human rights and for replacing those ideals with an outspoken support of Israel’s clear and undisputed violations of international law. Saeb Erekat, Palestinian chief negotiator and a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization Executive Committee.

.

France doesn’t agree with Canada’s strong support of Israel in its conflict with the Palestinians.  In  Baird’s recent visit to Ramallah  protesters pelted his motorcade with eggs and shoes. The Palestinian protesters also held signs reading: ”Baird, you are not welcome in Palestine” and ”Baird, Jerusalem is our capital.” ”This person backs up the Zionist movement,” . ”This person diminishes the rights of our people, takes part and backs up building of settlements. We tell him that he’s not welcome.” Protester Abdullah Abu-Rahmeh said

.

Canada once had respect of Israel and Palestine:

.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the world’s major sources of instability.
1- Israel currently has 262 Jewish-only settlements and ‘outposts’ built on confiscated Palestinian land. Palestinians do not have any settlements on Israeli land.
2- The Israeli unemployment rate is 5.8%, while the Palestinian unemployment in the West Bank is 22.5% and 41% in Gaza.
3- 133 Israeli children have been killed by Palestinians and 2,060 Palestinian children have been killed by Israelis since September 29, 2000
4 -1,195 Israelis and at least 9,826 Palestinians have been killed since September 29, 2000.
5- 11,018 Israelis and 71,841 Palestinians have been injured since September 29, 2000.
6 – During Fiscal Year 2014, the U.S. is providing Israel with at least $8.5 million per day in military aid and $0 in military aid to the Palestinians.
7 – Israel has been targeted by at least 77 UN resolutions and the Palestinians have been targeted by 1
8 – 0 Israelis are being held prisoner by Palestinians, while 6,500 Palestinians are currently imprisoned by Israel.
9- 0 Israeli homes have been demolished by Palestinians and at least 28,000 Palestinian homes have been demolished by Israel since 1967

OTTAWA (Reuters) – The sudden resignation of Canada’s foreign minister John Baird has revealed strains inside the ruling Conservatives and complicates their bid to extend a decade in power in elections this October… insiders said Baird had become increasingly frustrated with officials in Harper’s office, both on major issues and also over what he saw as excessive micro-management. Baird, the sources said, unsuccessfully pushed for tougher measures against Moscow last year. He was also upset that Harper’s office would not allow him to use government jets more often when on official travel. Baird it a  seems  had concluded the low-tax tough-on-crime Conservatives did not have a good chance of winning another majority in the next election.”It’s better to leave now rather than being one of 35 ex-cabinet ministers suddenly seeking a job after the election,” said one of the people, who declined to be named citing the sensitivity of the matter. Baird’s loss is a political and strategic setback that comes at a critical time.

Face it
(Eccl 1:9 KJV)  The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
(Eccl 1:14 KJV)  I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
(Eccl 3:16 KJV)  And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.
(Eccl 4:1 KJV)  So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.
(Eccl 5:13 KJV)  There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt.
(Eccl 9:3 KJV)  This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all: yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead.
(Eccl 10:5 KJV)  There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceedeth from the ruler:
.
Israel “is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name, speaks the same language, that it did 3,000 years ago.” except now it does  not worship the same God for it rejected him, Jesus Christ and chose the coming Antichrist Yeshua instead

.

For his strong stands against countries with anti-gay laws, Baird earned the enmity of REAL Women of Canada, a socially conservative women’s group. In 2013, the group accused him of an “abuse of power” for imposing his own views on anti-gay legislation in Uganda, Kenya and Russia. “Mr. Baird’s actions are destructive to the conservative base in Canada and causing collateral damage to his party,” the group fumed in a statement.

.

Recently he was a false attack dog, for  prime minister Stephen Harper’s  pit-bull  in his  speaking his  nonsense against the Russian Takeover of  Crimea, the supposed Russia’s incursions into Ukraine, and was openly critical of the United Nations because it did not support  Israel.

.

John Baird  joined the Canadian government’s condemnation of the  “barbaric” attack on the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo magazine that left a dozen people dead. Canada stands united with France against acts of terrorism.  “We want to condemn in the strongest terms, this barbaric act. To see 12 people, including two or three law enforcement officials killed in downtown Paris is just horrific,” he said. “I immediately placed a call to my counterpart, to say that we stand in solidarity with the French people at this time.”

.

Baird has recently  been working to secure the release of an accused terrorist  Egyptian-Canadian Al-Jazeera journalist  Mohamed Fahmy from a Cairo, Egypt  prison. Fahmy, who was arrested in 2013 and has been in jail since was sentenced to at least seven years in prison on terrorism-related charges last year in a trial. He was  over their coverage of the violent crackdown on Islamist protests following the military overthrow of President Mohammed Morsi in 2013. Egyptian authorities accused him of providing a platform for Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood, now declared a terrorist organization.  The family of Mohamed Fahmy has confirmed that the Egyptian-Canadian journalist has given up his Egyptian citizenship in the hope that it will get him released from a Cairo prison. People with dual  citizens are basically non Canadians anyway. Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird has said  he is hopeful Fahmy will be released from jail soon? but gave no specific timing. He believed that Mr Fahmy, the news channel’s Cairo chief who recently gave up Egyptian citizenship, would be deported like his Australian colleague Peter Greste. But a retrial has thrown that into question. John Baird failed here too..

Blocked investigation into Alberta’s tailings ponds

oil-sands

Canada has blocked an investigation into Alberta’s tailings ponds by NAFTA’s environmental watchdog.

.

“It shows that the Canadian government is willing to circumvent institutions that make sure Canada upholds environmental laws.”

.

It’s the third time in a year Canada has successfully stopped NAFTA’s scrutiny of its environmental behaviour.

.

Two environmental groups and three private citizens had asked the commission to investigate whether tailings ponds were leaking into nearby rivers and creeks in northern Alberta.

.

In 2014, with Mexico’s support, it stopped investigations into polar bear protection and B.C. salmon farms.

.

And “Canada, the oil sands’ poor image isn’t just a question of bad PR.  Anti-oil sands sentiment has made it nearly impossible to build the necessary pipeline connections producers need to get all that oil to market. TransCanada Corp.’s crossborder Keystone XL pipeline is in danger of being axed by U.S. President Barack Obama. The industry’s backup plan, Enbridge Inc.’s Northern Gateway pipeline to shipping terminals on the B.C. coast, has become bogged down in political and environmental controversy. Even TransCanada’s Energy East proposal, a sort of backup for the backup, has encountered unexpected political resistance in Ontario and Quebec—two provinces the diluted bitumen must transit through on its way to refineries in New Brunswick.”

.

” Alberta’s oilsands produce more greenhouse gas emissions than some European countries right now and will produce more than all of the world’s volcanoes in just 11 years if the pace of development continues, a new report says.  People will post 1001 excuses justifying this disaster.  http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2009/09/13/greenpeace-oilsands.html until it is too late to do anything about it..Remember Chernobyl” 
.

SADLY ECONOMICS DO CONTROL THE VIABILITY OF CANADA’S OIL SANDS PROJECTS.  Economics alone   SHOULD NOT now  control the direct oil sand extraction  process, engineering as well and also now not all firms are equally environmentally conscious, concerned so they all do now need to be better managed here, something that has falsely not been adequately done for sure so far.. and yes neither by the provincial or the federal governments HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB HERE. GREED AND PROFIT CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO OVER RULE SAFETY,  THE ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES, etc
