Ralph defends royalty regime Premier Ralph Klein says there's no need to review the royalty structure in the energy sector. Critics say the amount of money Albertans get from the oil and gas industry is among the lowest in the industrialized world. Government statistics show the amount of cash being reeled in by the energy sector is getting bigger, while the piece of the pie going to every-day Albertans is getting smaller.Fort McMurray votes to put brakes on oil sands Canadian Press FORT MCMURRAY, ALTA. — The mayor and council in this booming northern Alberta city voted unanimously Tuesday to try and put the brakes on all future oil sands development until something is done to improve the area's infrastructure. Specifically, Mayor Melissa Blake and the council for the Municipality of Wood Buffalo agreed to apply for intervenor status when oil sands giant Suncor goes to the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board on July 5 to apply for an expansion of its operations. However, they also decided to take the same action for any future application by any other oil sands company. “There's going to be a definite impact on how much the oil sands itself can advance and progress if we can't get our housing situation under control,” said Ms. Blake. “We can't get people to move to the community. Then we'll start losing business services ... we need to get more people working in service and hospitality.” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20060614.woilsands0614/BNStory/National/homeMeanwhile Klein is gone on at world wide vacation paid by the poor people of Alberta. This is the Conservative Government's management style. UnacceptableSpeaking some more about the bad Conservative way.. "Flaherty rejects request to end tax breaks for booming oil industry CP - Tue Jun 13, 04:54 PM EST OTTAWA (CP) - Finance Minister Jim Flaherty has rejected a request from environmental groups to end an estimated $1.4 billion in annual tax breaks to the booming oil industry."In case you could not tell by the price gouging at the gas pumps oil profits are at a record level AND SO IS THE AMOUNT OF TAX MONEY THE GOVERNMENTS COLLECT HERE TOO.. NO CONFLICT OF INTEREST.. JUST ALL GREED.and the Liberals are really no better?Quebec government cuts short debate on controversial park sale QUEBEC (CP) - Amid allegations of conflict of interest, the government of Premier Jean Charest cut short debate Monday on a controversial law allowing the sale of park land to a private developer. Bill 23 will allow the province to sell a ski hill and golf course in Mount Orford provincial park in the Appalachian Mountains, 130 kilometres southeast of Montreal. "Whose real interests do they want to promote?" said Diane Lemieux, a Parti Quebecois member of the national assembly. "Are they the interests of the people of Quebec or the friends of the premier?" Cutting short the debate is unacceptable under the cloud of conflict that exists over the park sale, said the PQ. The opposition cited media reports that former provincial Liberal minister and Charest fundraiser, Paul Gobeil, is the controlling partner in Mont Orford Inc., a potential buyer and developer of the land. The opposition PQ demanded an inquiry into the sale.Nova Scotians stick with minority government - third one in four elections. HALIFAX (CP) - Canada's youngest premier Rookie Tory Leader Rodney MacDonald, 34, wins a reduced minority government as Nova Scotia's electorate once again showed its reluctance to be ruled by a single party. PM Harper should note this too.It is amazing that when I had written emails to many Provincial and federal legislative members that Legislature members and were using their constituent resources for non constituent usage's that I was next called a liar by some members of the Alberta legislature, including one real loser who still wants to become a premier too, when the facts are apparent that such immoral acts, events do occur unacceptably still in Canada's politics for decades now too..The honourable Bishop Henry of Calgary is rightfully complaining about the half baked Catholics who use gambling as a means to supplement their income, something I have written about and pointed out years ago too, as to how also it unacceptable it was for any Christians, evangelicals, and the clearly immoral, bad, very worldly Ralph Klein to use this approach too, and it is just as much as immoral for Ralph Klein still to go on a world wide tour before retiring at the tax payer's expenses now as well.Look it should also be still very obvious that too many people still do go into politics to steal the tax payer's money.. federally and provincially ..
"Newfoundland's Conservative Natural Resources Minister Ed Byrne stepped down on Wednesday. On Friday afternoon, a New Democrat announced he's retained a lawyer because of the auditor's inquiries. Two unnamed Liberals are also said to be involved. Now the spotlight has turned to an opposition MHA. New Democrat Randy Collins acknowledges he's being investigated and has retained legal counsel. The four assembly members are alleged to have overbilled their constituency expense accounts by $1 million in total."
Unless these people get real punishment they all will not stop.
Now it should be very Obvious to all by now that new federal Conservative government, party are really now no different than the bad Liberals we had before, and it can bee seen that both of these political parties are mainly seeking their own gratification, thus are mainly wanting to stay in power, to win the reelection for none of them, none of them really do still now care about serving the good welfare of all the people of Canada equally and it really shows.. not till the next federal election will things likely even change here. Sad really sad.
Meanwhile Today in the other uncivilized places, like in the Progressive Conservative province of Alberta, Canada we can now really see the effects of the laws of the jungle, the results of a dog eat dog world where only the strongest can survive, and the weak are allowed to die in the process.. lyingly as well this is called a civilized place by some when it is truly both ungodly, backwards and uncivilized. For years the Alberta government lied about how good it was in Alberta, for the selective few and not the majority.. now the truth is coming out, a truth I have been sharing for a decade too. That the Alberta government really still does lie as to how really great it is in Alberta for the average fools.. . while the government and the citizens of Alberta has been hoarding the tax payer's money now even the schools, hospitals, infrastructures, roads have been allowed to suffer great wants... while in Calgary Alberta the price of homes have doubled beyond decency and affordability recently, next the rents, home property taxes, home insurance have gone up significantly as well, and so have many other things, that the salaries, and wages have not kept up with too.. It's getting harder to find a place to live and some tenants will see their payments triple in the coming months. An Alberta government spokesman Eoin Kenny says the province has received complaints about the rent hikes. Calgary's rent gouging follows months of skyrocketing housing prices. The average price of a single-family home in June was 408-thousand dollars -- a jump of 51 per cent in the last year. Rental control in Alberta wrongfully still do not exist cause many of the legislature members are also apartment building owners... "Calgary tenant Shawn Belcourt recently discovered the rent on his one-bedroom is increasing from $690 to $950 a month starting Oct. 1. The rent increase means he won't have any spending money left at the end of the month, he said. "That's basically gouging us. There's no explanation," he said. "In Alberta we have no cap on rent increases or nothing. There's nothing to protect us from this type of thing. A landlord can do what he wants." Alberta is one of three provinces without some form of rent control. Belcourt says he'd like to see a cap placed on the amount landlords can increase rents in a given year, tied to inflation rates and the cost of living." Property Taxes have gone up 17 per cent, insurance by 100 per cent, utilities by 75 per cent, and labour costs, as well as poor productivity, incompetences are still going through the roof in Calgary. A couple of Calgary businesses forced to close their doors -- not because they're not offering a needed service -- but because they can't get affordable, needed staff. The government of Alberta is still incompetent to manage any of this. We often have seen even the previous Alberta Tory governments how they have failed too after losing billions of dollars on failed government endeavours like Bovar, Novatel and Magcan. In June, the Conference Board of Canada warned that Alberta could face a labour shortage of 332,000 workers by 2025 if current trends continue. But who cares, the rich are still gettign richer in all of this. Workers from across Canada and around the world are still flooding into Alberta to get a piece of the prosperity pie only to find there's no place for them to eat that pie, let alone sleep after doing so.They were expecting to make a lot more money here, but now many newcomers they're wondering if they're going to be left with more money at the end of the day due to the very high costs of living there. The blame for Alberta's housing and resulting labour crunch still lies with government. "They should have built more affordable housing in Alberta," More affordable housing is needed and zoning should be changed to make that possible. Also, incentives should be offered to builders and developers to build higher density, lower-cost housing. An organization that gives food and shelter to the homeless is warning families not to come to Calgary without a place to stay. Inn from the Cold is dealing with a record number of families needing shelter and may soon have to turn people away, executive director Diana Segboer saidProv 29:14 KJV) The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever.Premier Klein of Alberta afterwards, now says any person is really stupid to go into politics.. or they are alcoholics who like to drink and party.. and do look at who now was talking.. an admitted drunk too.. and the foolish kettle calling the pot black.. Klein is a sore loser that he himself got kicked out off office.. but yes here is what I find really stupid about politicians and the federal, provincial and municipal levels.. the majority of voters are poor persons.. especially the younger persons, the seniors now too.. so it would appear to be natural sense for the politicians to have programs for the poor people to get their votes, support, Right? Rather alll wrong for the politicians tend to make polices and programs to support the rich folks because really they are hoping they will donate money to them.. the devil is really smart for he really knows how to corrupt the government politicians and civil servants too.. the lust of money.. the root of all evil.
Now there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, and generally if any politician is corrupt in one area she or he is also perverse in many others too. Now we have been given testimony from Calgary to Newfoundland how a member of parliament and also how members of legislatures how been misappropriating the Elected official's constituent expenses and using it for non constituent funding. Thus I would like a detail breakdown of the actual constituent funding expenses for all, each and every Member of Parliament, members of provincial legislature, and under the new conservative federal political party that has promised us all more openness and accountability there now should be no problem now making these records fully available for all of the Canadian Taxpayers across Canada as well. Be warned I will rightfully repeat this rightful request until it posted as well.
Not only now there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, and generally if any politician is corrupt in one area she or he is also perverse in many others too but most Canadians support decent moral values, the majority as well oppose adultery too. Now it is a known fact that too many politicians in Canada commit adultery unacceptably even while in political office, and two of them a mayor and a premier had sent the police to my home to falsely try to intimidate me from writing about this. This too was and is always unacceptable.Canada's Supreme Courts and Politicians too often do also Corrupt the majority of Canadian Values by rather heeding to the minorities.. Speaking of their personal values many politicians will acknowledge that they are, were once was pro-choice on abortion, support gays and that while single, they were known for their sexual discretion, promiscuous social life, drugs even, and active partying. Many existing or potential Political Candidates also do have Divorce Stories for a failed marriages are hardly unusual in this era of baby-boomer politicians, most candidates face sticky personal questions about their prior marriages:.. if they could not manage their marriage how can they manage the government? really!Voters are too often also looking for leaders that share their values, and for many, many of them that means both moral, and family values,"
Pedophilia , Prostitution, extra-marital sex, "puppy-love," porn , even alcoholics, drugs and drug addicts are declared clearly unacceptable by most Canadians still. A recent fresh poll of Canadian morals shows the confirmation of the conservative nature of basic Canadian values.. where 74% condemned extra-marital sex. Women, the supposed weak link in the Conservative so-called gender-gap, opposed such behaviour at an even higher rate of 81%. prostitution, rejected by 76% women, 68% overall, and under-age sex, rejected by 71% in BC — the highest in the nation — and by 65% overall.
We need to do with alcohol, drugs, pornography and gambling too what we did with smoking and drunk driving, "We had the courage as a society to talk about smoking and about responsible drinking, but we haven't been able to get past our inhibitions about talking about pornography. It's a distortion. Watch enough pornography, critics say, and ideas about sex and sexuality, and even relationships, will mirror pornography's sinister carnival. Drugs, gambling, and Porn media viewing affects one's behavior very disturbingly and negatively. Pornography distorts sex into something grotesque and violent. "It's a public-health crisis. There's no way this is the right path for anyone our culture to take." The growth of Internet pornography and gambling is clearly also unacceptable.
Like I have also said most of the politicians from Alberta in the federal government are also not that great now too.
And also still rightfully expect that no one cent of the taxpayer's money be used to buy by any politics, civil and public servants, even with their expense account meals alcohol anymore than I would allow them to use this money to buy bad drugs, cigarettes too. I would rightfully expect all alcoholics to be forced to resign fired from the civil and public services, governments rightfully ASAP too.
