foreign workers alleged to be abused in Alberta

 

Foreign workers in Alberta alleged to be abused  even by the federal government

“A group of Edmonton janitors is suing a cleaning company for $42,435 over allegations that overtime money is being held back and that they have been threatened with deportation. The janitors, many of whom are temporary foreign workers from the Philippines, say their employer, University of Alberta contractor Bee Clean Building Maintenance, is refusing to pay them tens of thousands of dollars in overtime. When the non-unionized workers questioned the company about the alleged lost wages, they claim they were being threatened with deportation. Danilo DeLeon, who is a temporary foreign worker from the Philippines, moved to Edmonton to work for Bee Clean about a year and a half ago. He said he works five, 12-hour shifts every week, with an extra seven-hour shift on what would otherwise be his day off. DeLeon said he’s supposed to get time and a half for anything more than 80 hours every two weeks. But Bee Clean has refused to pay, he claimed. When he told his employer he would contact a union or the Ministry of Labour about Bee Clean’s refusal to pay him, DeLeon said his boss threatened to have him deported. “My supervisor threatened to send me back home. He said the owner was upset,” he said. Yessy Byl, a temporary foreign worker advocate with the Alberta Federation of Labour, said the Bee Clean case is a prime example of exploitative issues temporary foreign workers across Canada face on a daily basis. Byl said the federal and provincial governments do nothing to protect temporary foreign workers if they are wrongfully terminated. In fact, governments make it impossible for the worker to get a new job, and in the end the worker is deported, she said. At no time does the employer get prosecuted by the federal government or provincial government [for the wrongful termination], she said. Its the workers who end up bearing the burden. There are more than 60,000 temporary foreign workers in Alberta, according to provincial officials.”

Canada’s medical care services are too often pretentious, unacceptable

 


I have for my liking now in Canada also met  too many bad doctors and bad  nurses, bad hospital managers, pretentious professionals  in my life in reality too  Even Doctors who had abused their research grants now too.

 

The numbers of new Cancer, Heart cases and deaths are continuing to rise in many parts of Canada even. When it comes to Cancer only about 25 percent  of the deaths now are unavoidable and the balance could have been likley prevented with better education, preventative measure, applicable now to heart deaths as well, all which clearly means our governments, Health Ministers they  are not still doing enough to look after the good welfare of all Canadians these days too. Help for sick, and the dying  is insufficient still. The statistics also suggest 40% of men and 45% of Canadian women will develop cancer during their lifetime. This year, an estimated 173,800 Canadians will be diagnosed with some form of cancer, up by 2,800 over 2009; 76,200 are predicted to die from the disease, an increase of 900 compared to last year. Final medical  care throughout the nation , the attention paid to it, and the help provided for dying at home is not up to the mark and is unacceptably deficient Canada wide too.  ”A variety of benefits and services are available when a new life enters the world. We should be providing just as much support when someone is dying,”

 

Despite years of many persons complaints now, end-of-life care remains an inadequate, unacceptable  patchwork of help too often and where other related services do exist, the patients too often now are referred to palliative care much too late. . When I do read many news media accounts of the events surrounding all Canadians it seems like the news written applies to another planet, and not the one we are living on herein Canada. The news spins and desertions are grossly immoral as well. For example take the recent media spins on Cancer and on palliative care of dying patients as well  One person’s death that could be prevented and one less person  dying in pain and suffering is never to be considered as unimportant even in the overall picture. Even one person needlessly suffering an agonizing death in pains because they were not given adequate medication, pain killer is also now totally unacceptable.  There’s some real big, major gaps and inconsistencies, governmental and medical cruelty even on how one’s end-of-life care is delivered. Not only is the available   number of hospice beds and quantity of home care   insufficient, even  in the hospitals, but the problem will only get worse as more seniors, almost double the number, next  will retire within the next decade .

 

And even the professional counseling ,depression services,  end-of-life discussions are significantly missing among the medical  staff and the  families next as well. Social Services in Canada tends to be of any at a crude, bare, simple, basic, pre historic, dinosaur age level.  Most families often don’t use them because they don’t know what supports are available or how to access them. Doctors and the nurses they too often tell you tell you nothing of what you  do need to know still. Too many persons will die first while waiting for either a quality end-of-life care or an adequate place in a medically equipped convalescent old age home.  Too many sick persons die waiting for either a quality end-of-life care or an adequate place in a medically equipped convalescent old age home. Imagine this cruelty, absurdity now as well an overnight palliative care was being stopped because it  exceeded the two-week limit in place.  Now it’s a disgrace that anyone ox subjected to  this during their final days. Many many persons now would in Canada still benefit from a decent end-of-life care but often still don’t get it, in our rather still uncivilized society. Inadequate Services Offered for  “End-of-life”, No Improvement Even  Years  After.  The  special Senate committee had reported uneven access to palliative care in 1995 and a 2005 follow up found little progress now in Canada showing us all how little our politicians do really care about others death, pain, suffering in reality. Mostly lying Health Ministers  say they now are  doing everything they can to help ensure excellence in cancer care for all.. No one should be foolish enough to believe this at any time too. In reality the way the end-of-life care, seniors cares are  now being  delivered clearly shows that there is a need of real federal and provincial management and adequate regulations.

Canada

Canada is definitely not one big Country, but consists of many little countries, or regions that seem to have their own provincial, territorial laws, priorities, their own hidden agendas. The West, the Maritimes, Quebec, Ontario included.  
 
Yes some of the Canadian concerns Canada wide are very similar:
– For example Consumer protection including the cost of housing, the cost of living, food and clothing included, the cost of insurance, Phone Bills,  and the costs of transportation, gas, heating.
– Next there is the continually serious concern about the actual availability of Medicare, and hospitals as well especially when you are seriously ill, plus the valid concerns  of having the adequate  convalescent homes for the elderly, sick
– Then there is the cost of taxes, in reality and too often everyone pay taxes, and yes they are still too often wasted, and that includes too many hidden taxes now too. Public and Civil servants are rarely known for being well managed, or cost effective, rather they are known as being troublesome, wasteful, expensive, over indulged as well. Especially even the Police, RCMP it seems.
– Then there is the problem of too many crimes, that one tends to be concerned only when one encounters it, abuses,  illicit drugs, thefts, stolen cars, white collar crimes, frauds, identity theft. Here one finds out how too often inadequate, pretentious are the justice ministers and justice systems are now too.
 

Enough is enough!

 

Want to get really depressed? Just visit an old age home, where you have mostly retired seniors in their late 80’s and talk to them firsthand, and often hear them say “the longer I live on earth, the more I see how wicked, corrupted place it really is”. Now I too have experienced the same thing, such as crooked lawyers, bad cops, useless civil servants, useless politicians, bad, corrupted pastors even  but I next did something good about it..
 
 
Now sadly in my course of daily activities, travel I do personally encounter too often still unacceptably abusive, wicked persons   and I have two simple choices: I take an ostrich or sheep approach and I can   pretend, lie  that I  did not see it, or that does not concern me or rather I can   take real,  positive actions to insure the same unacceptable wicked person does not repeat their bad acts.
 
One reason  too many wicked persons do not repent it cause they seem to think I too am only one person, another one of those too typical complainers, loud mouthed person whose bark is worse than his bite.. and it does seem we have mostly that type of complainers now too.  
 
But in real life there are a few things that get my blood boiling, cause my blood pressure to rise and cause me to act immediately.. that especially includes abusive pastors, abusive cops, abusive medical care workers, and crooked, accountants,  bad lawyers, crooked corporate managers, bad politicians too  now too as you all can see in posts. 
 
Now I too have learned the great secret in helping bad people to personally repent or to change their wicked ways.. the public exposure and the demand of their rightful prosecuting, dismissal  of the same  wicked persons, as well as their bad superiors, and generally best done not by a phone call, but rather done in writing, with many copies to the right parties, news media, ministers, elected offices and also openly to the general public next too even  such as those you do eventually see on my web blogs https://postedat.wordpress.com/ and http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/ created   special blogs where I do, have placed the unacceptable wrong doings of others towards me and others, and thus I let them experience their own appiroaite consequence.
 
Public exposure and the related prosecution of of the unrepentant wicked persons serves best interest. 

Now crooked civil and public professionals, crooked realtors, crooked accounts, crooked business persons are not the only bad guys I have encountered in Canada, there have also been the crooked hospital administrators, perverse internet service providers such as Bell and Acanac as well, where they have a very wide, oceanic gulf  between what the sales- marketing department promises and what they next do deliver as well.. and if you try to complaint too much to them they tend next to lie about you, and try to cut you off too. Bell Canada does not discriminate, show partiality, it seems ready to abuse anyone..   Canada’s telcos such as Bell  are at a clear disadvantage in the battle with the cable companies, for internet speeds as well, cable firms  have modern coaxial cable networks that support greater bandwidth use than the phone companies’ too common mostly copper wire and so in overcoming this Bell resorts to lies, false misleading advertisements for years now too.
