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.
 

Married CFB Trenton commander charged in murder

 

  Police told an afternoon news conference that Col. Russell Williams, 46, of Tweed, Ont., was arrested Sunday in Ottawa.  He’s charged with the first-degree murder of Jessica Lloyd, 27, of Belleville and Marie Comeau, a 38-year-old corporal with CFB Trenton’s 437 squadron who lived in Brighton.  Lloyd’s body was found earlier Monday in Tweed and a post-mortem is being scheduled at the Coroner’s Office in Toronto. Comeau was found dead in her home Nov. 25, 2009.  Williams is also charged with forcible confinement, break and enter and sexual assault after two women were sexually assaulted during two separate home invasions in the Tweed area in September of 2009. Williams will appear in bail court in Belleville this afternoon.  Lloyd was last heard from the night of Jan. 28 when she sent a text message to a friend.  She was reported missing the next day after she failed to show up for her job with the Tri-Board Student Transportation Services in Napanee.  Williams was appointed as the base commander of CFB Trenton last July.  He enrolled in the Canadian Forces in 1987 after getting a degree in economics and political Science from the University of Toronto.  He got his wings in 1990 and spent two years teaching at the military’s flight training school.  While posted to squadrons in Shearwater, N.S., and Ottawa he flew the CC144 Challenger.  He was promoted to lieutenant colonel in June 2004, and was commanding officer of 437 Squadron in Trenton for two years.  Between December 2005 and June 2006, he was the commanding officer for Camp Mirage, the secretive Canadian Forces forward logistics base that’s not officially acknowledged by the government or military but has been widely reported to be near Dubai.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100208/national/missing_belleville_woman

8 Wing/CFB Trenton has been home base for the Huskies since 1961, providing the wide range of support services essential for the Squadron’s many and varied national and international missions.  437 Squadron is currently equipped with five CC-150 Polaris (A-310 Airbus) Aircraft, a familiar sight not only in the skies around Trenton, but also across Canada and around the world. The Polaris replaced the aging Boeing 707 in April 1997. Their primary role is long-range transport of personnel and equipment – and VIP airlift. Examples include operations in support of the Canadian Forces, NATO and numerous United Nations and Red Cross initiatives. 437 Squadron has earned an excellent reputation in the role of VIP transport. Members of the Royal Family, the Prime Minister, the Governor General and various heads of State have been frequent passengers.Nicknamed the “Husky Squadron”, this unit adopted as its badge a husky’s head indicitive of its function of the glider towing and the transportation of essential freight. The Huskies are proud of their motto “Omnia Passim” (Anytime, Anywhere) and commit themselves to perpetuating their outstanding record of achievement. With some exceptions!

The highly specialized Behavioural Sciences and Analysis Services unit of the Ontario Provincial Police works on violent and sexual crimes and is integrally involved in the investigation that led to Col. Russell Williams being charged this week with two counts each of first-degree murder, forcible confinement and sexual assault.  Based at the OPP general headquarters in Orillia, Ont., about 150 kilometres north of Toronto, the unit was founded in 1995 and now encompasses 110 officers and civilian staff members in four broad areas.

Little more than a week ago,Jan. 29 , a Belleville woman, 27-year-old Jessica Lloyd, was reported missing when she failed to show up for her shift with Tri-Board Student Transportation in the town of Napanee.  Unconfirmed reports indicate next that she was abducted from her home and that Williams’ vehicle may have left behind distinctive tire tracks in the process.  “Russ is pretty meticulous. When he buys a set of tires, he buys the best that’s on the market. I guess they were a particular brand… they had a particular design on the tread,” Her body was found Monday in a secluded area not far from Tweed.

– In their bid to find information about Lloyd’s disappearance, OPP and Belleville police set up a road block on Highway 37 near Belleville on Feb. 4, and stopped and questioned motorists for 11 hours. Last Thursday, on a stretch of rural highway, they set up the equivalent of a RIDE-program spot check, only this time they were looking not for drinking drivers, but certain vehicles.

According to reports, police were looking for winter tires with a distinctive tread design.

Williams came to the attention of police during the roadblock, police have said, although they have not given out any more details.

– Williams was arrested in Ottawa on Sunday and charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of Lloyd, and Comeau. He was also charged with the forcible confinement and sexual assault of the two Tweed women. he is being investigated for possible many more unsolved crimes, murders now as well even elsewhere

OBVIOUSLY A POLITICAL APPOINTEE.. AND ARE THERE MANY MORE LIKE HIM NOW?

CP BELLEVILLE, Ont. – The base commander of CFB TrentonColonel Russell Williams  has been charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of two eastern Ontario women and in the sexual assaults of two other women. News of the charges shocked the small communities in eastern Ontario that are at the center of the police investigation, as well as Canadian Forces Base Trenton, which handles tactical air support flights for Canada’s combat mission in Afghanistan and relief flights for Haiti. Colonel Russell Williams,  showed little interest in repairing the fractured family life that has followed him since he was young.  Two years ago his mother, Nonie, and brother Harvey reached out to Col. Williams in a bid at reconciliation following his parents’ divorce, the second time his  home life was torn asunder.  “Our relationship with him was broken off in early 2001, when our mother’s divorce from my stepfather caused a deep rift between him and my mother and myself,”  “We rarely had any contact until two years ago, when my mother and I tried to find a way to repair the family rift. We have had only minimal contact with him in the past two years. “We were shocked and appalled to learn of the crimes with which Col. Williams is being charged,” he said in a written statement, calling it “alarming and distressing news.” Harvey Williams. Similarly, relatives of Col. Williams’ stepfather, Jerry Sovka, an eminent nuclear scientist, described a family that maintained little contact. Born in England, Col. Williams was still young when his father, David, split with his mother and the two boys continued to live with their mother and new stepfather, Dr. Sovka.  Dr. Sovka  returned to Canada for a job at Atomic Energy Canada Ltd. in Toronto, where he helped design Canada’s early Candu nuclear plants, and later as a senior engineer with Ontario Hydro while the young Col. Williams attended Toronto’s Birchmount Collegiate in east Toronto. Dr. Sovka’s work led him to move several times, including four years in South Korea, a stint with the Montreal-based engineering firm SNC and Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station in New Brunswick, and even to Hawaii. Col. Williams remained in Toronto. From 1980 to 1982, he completed high school at Upper Canada College while boarding at the sprawling private boys school.  Col. Williams graduated with a degree in economics and political science from the University of Toronto in 1987 before embarking that same year on a military career while returning to his birth name Williams. As a pilot during the 1990s he flew VIP flights on the federal government’s Challenger aircraft that are used by federal politicians including the prime minister. A series of postings led him to higher rank and greater responsibility. On July 15, 2009, he was named as the commander of CFB Trenton .More charges against Col. Russell Williams, a wing commander at Canadian Forces Base Trenton who is accused of murdering two eastern Ontario women, aren’t being ruled out as the investigation continues.

Republicans and the Democrats give social welfare to rich persons

 

 

The vote against the measure was 228 to 205, with 133 Republicans joining 95 Democrats in opposition. The bill was backed by 140 Democrats and 65 Republicans.

Supporters vowed to try to bring the rescue package up for consideration again as soon as possible, perhaps late Wednesday or Thursday, but there were no definite plans to do so.

“Ronald Reagan is back, and he is you Friends, conservatives often complain that no one has ever risen to take the place of Ronald Reagan in our government. But Ronald Reagan is back, and he is you! His spirit has never once left us. His spirit was alive and well when you stood up last year and opposed the bipartisan amnesty bill that you knew the Gipper wouldn’t approve. He was here again today in our Congress during the vote that failed to pass a bill that would have made slaves of every one of us and ended free market capitalism forever in the USA. Fox News said legislators received 999 calls out of 1,000 opposing the bailout. Fox commentators didn’t look too happy about that and the results of today’s vote. I imagine many of them, like Neil Cavuto, are heavily invested in stocks. (Isn’t it interesting that, although almost 100% of us oppose the bailout, Fox News continues to drone on about how important it is for the taxpayer to foot the bills for the crooks in government. Looks like conservatives have broken with their task master). I realize that the stock market does not like this, but look, I have stock too, and I know that if we show these lazy pandering politicians we won’t let them enslave us, our children will grow up in a better, safer world.  “http://laiglesforum.com/2008/09/29/ronald-reagan-is-back-and-he-is-you/

 

 

 

 

 

Clinton hesitant to call Obama a ‘great man’

 
 
Bill Clinton said he wasn’t ready to call Obama a ‘great man’.

(CNN)– Former President Bill Clinton was hesitant to characterize Barack Obama as a “great man” Sunday, a phrase he had no qualms using last week to describe Obama’s rival John McCain.

Clinton told NBC’s Tom Brokaw that it was only earlier this month in Harlem that he and Obama had their “first conversation.”

Clinton then explained what he meant in characterizing McCain as a “great man.”

“I think his greatness is that he keeps trying to come back to service without ever asking people to cut him any slack or feel sorry for him or any of that stuff because he was a POW,” Clinton said of the Republican presidential nominee.

Clinton, who successfully ran his own 1992 presidential campaign on the now commonly used phrase “it’s the economy, stupid,” said that he believed the current economic crisis “left [Obama] in a position of leadership that he’s now in.”

Clinton said he and Obama are developing a “really good relationship,” and the Democratic nominee has the potential for greatness. Explaining, he said Obama has many personal accomplishments, but none that exemplify his greatness to the country.

“When he becomes president, he’ll be doing things for the American people and for the world and he is-and the greatness will then become apparent because of the good he’ll do…That’s what I very much believe is going to happen.”

Some have questioned Bill Clinton’s support for Obama following the protracted primary battle between the Illinois senator and Hillary Clinton. The former president praised Obama during his speech at the Democratic National Convention and declared Obama “ready to be president of the United States,” as both sides tried to bring an end to the “Clinton-Obama rift” storyline.

Clinton himself was among the most outspoken critics of Obama’s readiness during the primary season.

The reason it has taken him so long to hit the trail for Obama was the need for him to return to work on his foundation after the long primary season, Clinton explained Sunday.

He is expected to campaign for Obama in Florida, Ohio, northeast Pennsylvania, and Nevada after the Jewish holidays.

“I’m going to do my very best to do every single thing he asks me to do,” Clinton said.
