New Brunswick Premier Shawn Graham

During the 2006 provincial election campaign, Graham promised to maintain the Crown corporation as a publicly owned utility.
 
Hydro-Quebec would get the majority of NB Power’s assets under a proposed agreement worth nearly $5 billion signed Thursday by New Brunswick Premier Shawn Graham and Quebec Premier Jean Charest.

According to the memorandum of understanding, Hydro-Quebec would buy the assets for $4.75 billion – an amount equivalent to NB Power’s debt – giving Quebec greater capacity to export power to the United States.

Those assets include transmission lines, offices and most generation facilities including the Point Lepreau nuclear power plant.

“This agreement … will also provide Quebec with a strategic geographic position with regards to the markets of Atlantic Canada and New England,” Charest said.

“All Quebecers will benefit from this agreement.”

The premiers of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador have warned the deal would give Hydro-Quebec a monopoly that could hinder other power development in the region.

But Graham says there will be opportunity for public debate before the closing date of the deal at the end of March 2010.

Still, he lauded the benefits it would bring to his province.

“The elimination of NB Power’s massive debt will help us attain self-sufficiency and relieve our children and grandchildren of this burden,” he said.

“Homeowners will see rates much lower than under the status quo, and we will now share Quebec’s competitive industrial rates.”

New Brunswick would continue to operate fossil fuel plants at Coleson Cove and Belledune, but phase out the facility at Dalhousie.

Residential power rates in New Brunswick would be frozen for five years, while industrial rates would be reduced to match those in Quebec – a total saving of about $5 billion.

NB Power was created by New Brunswick’s legislature in 1920.

To get elected many premiers make promsies they next do not keep… in BC, Ontario, Quebec, Alberta etc.,

Williams lashes out at Quebec-NB power deal CBC.ca – Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams spoke out in St. John’s Thursday against a proposed deal to sell the majority of New Brunswick’s power assets to Quebec.

 
Williams lashes out at Quebec-N.B. power deal Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams spoke out in St. John’s Thursday against a proposed deal to sell the majority of New Brunswick’s power assets to Quebec.Williams said if the deal goes through, it will be bad for Newfoundland and Labrador, the Maritime provinces and Ontario.   “If [Quebec also] acquires P.E.I. and Nova Scotia [power], we will find ourselves in a situation where one province will have energy control of the entire Maritime provinces,” said Williams. “It will be attempting to strand Newfoundland and Labrador. So good, cheap, competitively priced energy, can’t be offered to that whole region.

http://www.cbc.ca/canada/newfoundland-labrador/story/2009/10/29/nl-newfoundland-nbpower-2910.html

Quebec-NB power deal a ‘complete capitulation,’ Williams says St. John’s Telegram

 
The province’s opposition leader said it’s unfair that the proposed deal is giving a rate cut to large industrial clients, but not to residential ratepayers. “The Liberals ran on a promise to NOT sell NB Power. They have no mandate to do this. Go out and ask the people who pay your salary, Premier. It’s our power system that you’re selling, not yours.”  How the hell can government get away with something like this without going to the people….democracy is dead in Canada and has been for years.   http://www.cbc.ca/canada/new-brunswick/story/2009/10/29/nb-alward-election-109.html

Canwest’s debts

 
TORONTO -Details of Canwest’s debts to other companies outlined in creditor list.   The  list of debts filed on the website of Canwest Global Communication Corp’s court-appointed monitor as it restructures under creditor protection offer a glimpse into the  accrued  finances of this poorly managed Canadian media firm. that owns and manages also the National Post, the  Montreal Gazette, Edmonton Journal and Ottawa Citizen dailies, and  there’s been much speculation about the future of Canwest’s newspapers. The detailed list of nearly 1,000 bills and debts shows that the insolvent media conglomerate owes from a handful of dollars to millions to a long list of companies, including television production houses, taxi firms and a florist. Imagine that owning money to a taxi firm too.. Unbelievable.  The bills are  comprised mainly, but not solely  of   corporate expenses for a company that owns dozens of newspapers, the Global TV network, and web properties – now do stretch as high as several million dollars. The Winnipeg-based media giant has been unable to pay such operating expenses as it struggles with $4 billion in corporate debt.  Canwest hopes to restructure its business and emerge from creditor protection by the end of January. ” In documents filed earlier this month, the court outlined stipulations that allowed Canwest to continue receiving services deemed essential to its operations, like television programming, while it restructures”
 
Let me be simply clear about it. I rightfully do along with many others have no respect to Canwest or any of it’s news media actual or supposedly credibility, and that of all of it’s affiliates now as well,  when firstly they could not, cannot even properly manage their business, and pay their debts. Definitely they are unprofessionally managed. So how can they Canwest even exemplarily continue now try to present, write about any of the news occurring now too. How dare they also now hypocritically, write about, criticize any  other firms, persons operation, related management too  now as well when Canwest itself is, has been undeniably guilty of extremely  poor management.

Get real now Canada

 Tory ridings get more stimulus money: Chrétien was known to dish out government money to Liberal-held ridings. But Harper he promised to do things differently.  “Promised to do things differently.”  Is there anything Harper has ever said that is true? Are Harper and his Cons Politically Corrupt? I say Yes! Worth noting is the Cons hold 46% of all ridings. 46% of ridings getting 60% of funds suggests something more then coincidence The depth of the sheer partisanship and dunious ethics of the cons never ceases to amaze me Pretty obvious political maneuvering. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2009/10/22/stimulus-spending.html ,  

http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/10/22/dealing-only-with-one-leaking-hole-of-many-in/

 What about having  a valid,  real Federal economic development, job creation programs instead?  for  It is not surprising that the same Civil servants under the federal  Liberal government had suggested next again  a federal job creation program that would provide cash stimulant firstly now to their fellow buddies, the civil and public servants at the provincial , municipal levels, but what was rather surprising that the Conservative politicians had gone along with it.

Forget the crap that the Canadian Governments, especially municipalities are serving the public, including all of their civil and public servants, in reality they are mostly self serving, and basically not at all trying to control the tax payer’s costs, as a result major rampant uncontrolled money abuses, thefts,  corruptions,  etc continues occur Canada wide too.. 

 
 best-lie
 
 

Rather also now what real effort has been made to work with the private sector to stimulate more valid, effective new job creations programs, that just do not benefit the often corrupt, incompetent municipalities and related contractors? The Conservative government’s economic stimulus spending spree that is pouring billions of tax dollars into road construction projects and infrastructure is just not good enough.. Real employment, and  our actual economic outputs are the much better, practical  gauge of Canada’s, our present well-being.
 
And it is also an undeniable fact now  that too many Politicians in Canada, both Members of the provincial legislatures, and members of parliament, do lie, they make false claims that they the servants of the people, they thus are mainly looking after the needs, concerns of the citizens of Canada  but mainly instead wrongfully do now use tax payer’s money, do use governmental resources and personnel  to distribute  unsolicited material to others to promote firstly their own re-ELECTION and TO PROMOTE  their own political party as we clearly all have seen the New Conservative Ministers wrongfully also now doing OFTEN NOW as well. 
 
OTTAWA – Stimulus money earmarked for Quebec is only trickling down to communities in the province, while other provinces are awash in federal funds, an analysis by The Canadian Press shows. the analysis was able to count, locate and evaluate 4,833 projects that have been announced coast-to-coast. Far fewer than 10 per cent of those projects are in Quebec, Canada’s second most populous province.  Of the 4,833 projects published on the government’s centre piece map as of Oct. 25, less than 300 are in Quebec. Ontario claims more than 2,500, while Alberta and British Columbia both have more than 300 each.  officials at both the municipal and federal levels were quick to admit  that stimulus has been slow to get off the ground in the province. There have been lots of announcements, but the work seems more and more problematic for they have taken so much time to finalize agreements.  Most of the federal stimulus money requires agreement and matching funds from between the provincial and municipal governments. Several broad agreements have been announced in principle, but individual projects are not getting the go-ahead quickly.
 
  Pressure also is now mounting on the federal government to relax its two-year limit on much of the stimulus spending. The Parliamentary Budget Officer validated the case for an extension last week, saying the two-year limit is causing a rush to build infrastructure, possibly forcing cities to make hasty decisions, and prompting construction prices to soar.
 
 
The federal government preaches accountability, but is being only selectively transparent about its own spending activities.  Compare this cloaking to Stephen Harper’s boasting about his stimulus package. Even here, there is less transparency than meets the eye. Considerable work by opposition parties and the media, including this newspaper, have shown patterns of spending to favour Conservative ridings, and suggest that less money has flowed to actual construction projects than the government would like the public to believe.  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/opinions/editorials/keeping-secrets-hurts-democracy/article1337775/
  
It really causes us to think as to what is the federal Conservative government wrongfully hiding here from us all as well… The Conservative government was accused Thursday of playing an elaborate shell game to prevent Canadians from following the billions of dollars being spent on federal infrastructure stimulus. New Democrat Pat Martin (Winnipeg Centre) told a parliamentary committee the government has done everything possible to hide how much of the $12 billion earmarked for infrastructure has been spent or how many jobs created.

 We all in Canada already  could be facing more taxes, severe service cuts as the federal  and provincial governments  do brace  some more for a “long, slow grind” to economic recovery that included already unacceptable government wastes,  high deficits that even will take years to over come..

 Now about having  a valid,  real costs controls, what was rather surprising that the Conservative politicians had gone along with it.  What is also surprising is the new federal Conservative Government like it’s Liberal predecessor does not want to regulate the taxpayer’s money abuses.. surprise , surprise…
 
 
Just a Small Detail.. CBC contacted the office of Natural Resources Minister Lisa Raitt to ask about the lobbyist who helped organize a fundraiser on her behalf on Sept. 24.  Michael B. McSweeney is vice-president of the Cement Association of Canada.   Both he and the association are registered with the Office of the Commissioner of Lobbying of Canada.  And a search of the registry shows that on Sept. 24, the Cement Association reported having lobbied Raitt directly.   In an email to Raitt’s new communications wrangler Jocelyne Turner, CBC News asked for more information about McSweeney’s involvement in the fundraiser, as well as whether McSweeney was paid for his services.  “Minister Raitt is committed to working with the Ethics Commissioner and is cooperating fully. The Minister will abide by any ruling by the Commissioner.   “The issue is now being examined by the Ethics Commissioner and therefore it would be inappropriate to comment further.” http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/politicalbytes/2009/10/just-a-small-detail.html
 
and is this related to the Quebec corruptions scandals going on presently as well.. after all some of  of the biggest cement companies are in Montreal.. Lafarge Cement included.. and is this why the Conservative federal government does not want to get into Quebec’s legal affairs too?

Gomery wants new inquiry – this one into alleged mob, construction, politics ties  MONTREAL – The man who led a historic inquiry into political corruption thinks another one is necessary amid allegations of criminal acitivity in the construction industry and municipal politics. Mafia experts describe such corruption as a national occurence but so far governments at the federal, provincial, and municipal level have been resistant to the idea of a probe. The retired judge said large donors wield too much influence when it comes to the awarding of municipal contracts, and that an inquiry could explore those links.. Quebec’s highways cost 11 per cent more per kilometre than in Ontario and 43 per cent more than in the rest of Canada… Curbing corruption could save several hundred million dollars every year.. adds 20 to 35 per cent to the cost of public works projects… the savings would pay for better repairs to, and snow removal from, streets and sidewalks. It would reduce pressure on raising property taxes, parking-meter fees, and bus fares. And it would make tram lines (which cost $40 million per kilometre) more affordable.

“Now it’s fair to say my experiences in politics over the past four years have reminded me why 97% of Canadians do not belong to a party”

A BAD CONSERVATIVE IS NOT ANY BETTER THAN A BAD LIBERAL. BASHING THE LIBERALS WILL NOT CHANGE THE FACTS, REALITY AS TO HOW STILL THE BAD CONSERVATIVES ARE. 

It has always confounded me as to why the crooks, abusers  too often do still do think they can get away with now, next and forever.

Canada fell to 19th place this year from 13th last year on Reporters Without Borders’ index of freedom of the press. The analysis includes print, broadcast and online journalism in 175 countries.

It is also a  vintage  Conservative PM Stephen Harper style, as a wolf in sheep clothing, that now continually still  falsely evades, evades, evades facing his  own negative truths too, for when it comes to dealing about what he actually does, what he actually stands for, he the Great Evader demonstrates openly to all his own  extraordinary lack of honesty,  forthrightness and any credible intellectual weight

FOR WE TEND TO KNOW THAT THEY THE CROOKS, ABUSERS TOO,  NOW ARE NOT ABOUT TO STOP THEIR WRONG DOINGS. RATHER THEY WILL NEXT EVEN ESCALATE, CONTINUE IN THEM. AND THAT IS ANOTHER VALID REASON  THEY DO NEED TO BE EXPOSED, PROSECUTED AND STOPPED. EVEN FOR THE GOOD OF US ALL

It is not the rapists, drunk drivers, tax money abusers  that mostly  fill the courts calendars, docks rather it is mostly the revenue generating traffic tickets..

Ottawa vows tougher white-collar sentencing  OTTAWA – The Conservative government says legislation to be tabled Wednesday will set a two-year mandatory minimum federal jail sentence for fraud over $1 million. What a joke.. Steal  one million dollars, go to jail for 2 years only, and when you come out you can likley spend the money you have hidden as well..

Harper finds even more jobs for the faithful –

Here is what all politicians, cops, pastors too,

King_John

Here is what all politicians, cops, pastors too, in fact  all persons need to learn..
 
A good name is worth more than any amount of material wealth, silver and gold you do try to acquire, pursue at any costs, because still most people next really do hate it  when next many other people talk bad about them, despise  them openly to others, and they do often next regret having done all the bad things that have now led them to a very low name, a tarnished and a disrespected one.
 
0ottawa,PARLIAMENT
 
Most people also find out that spending a lot of effort pursing a glorified  career in the end had a very costly price to pay, for they have put in a lot of time and energy, some even wasted too, while they could have rather being doing something good instead, rather had been with their family and friends.
 
The human rights abuse  of anyone next very shortly has a big drastic, personal price to pay as well..
businessman
 
Stealing is not worth it for what you steal next tends not to bring you the happiness you originally had thought it would, so you continue to look for happiness, ironically some by continuing to steal..
 
 
The bad friends, and bad acquaintances  lead to very bad company and  corrupting irreversibly generally one’s personal morality even more.
 

Worker compensation

workers

The U.S. Government Should not at all Cut Federal Workers’  Compensation.  Members of Congress who have large numbers of federal workers in their districts relentlessly pushed for expanding federal worker compensation.  The George W. Bush years rightfully now too were very lucrative for federal workers. In 2000, the average compensation (wages and benefits) of federal workers was 66 percent higher than the average compensation in the U.S. private sector. The new data show that average federal compensation is now more than double the average in the private sector. In 2008, the federal worker compensation averaged a remarkable $119,982, which was more than double the private sector average of $59,909. For the excellent pay and benefits, in the current economic environment, public sector jobs have become highly attractive to many people looking for work. With health care costs soaring every year and compensation for workers in the private sector sadly, unacceptably is  not rising to keep up with rising costs, so working for the government has become fashionable again. The importance of the federal benefits was recently underscored by a U.S. Senator. During a town hall meeting in Waukon, Iowa, a constituent asked Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) “Why is your insurance so much cheaper than my insurance and so [much] better than my insurance?” and the man followed up, “Okay, so how come I can’t have the same thing you have?” Grassley replied, “You can. Just go work for the federal government.”  Yes, the federal government pays good benefits and pay of its employees which sadly does match the current pay levels in the private sector. Though there may not be a  will to do this, a program to gradually increase the benefits offered to private workers in Canada and in the US has to be now also implemented.

Meanwhile we also could get a lot better National economy, lower taxes too,  that much sooner if we started laying off any of the bad, non-productive state and federal workers, civil and public servants too,  or rather  made them all now   do something worthwhile and productive.

(Mal 3:5 KJV)  And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.

Women too now should get their fair wages.

 

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.
