THE RECENT CORRUPTION SCANDALS HAS EXPOSED CANADA TO SCRUTINY.
BUT NOW THE WORLD GETS TO SEE HOW CANADIAN POLITICS WORK.
WHAT IS MAKING THE HEADLINE NEWS:
1. THE PRIME MINISTER, STEVEN HARPER'S OFFICE, FINANCIAL BAILOUT, OF A SENATOR'S PERSONAL DEBT. (THAT HAS ALSO CAUSED THE P.M. CHIEF OF STAFF, NIGEL WRIGHT TO RESIGN.
(SENATOR MIKE DUFFY'S $90,000.00 DEBT THAT WAS PAID OFF BY THE PRIME MINISTER'S CHIEF OF STAFF AND THE INTERNAL AUDIT THAT WAS LATER "DOCTORED", OR "WATERED DOWN" TO SHOW A LESS DAMNING REPORT.
2. SENATOR PAMELA WALLIN'S, TRAVELLING EXPENSES COST, OF OVER $300,000.00
(Which clearly could not be for travel expenses only). A poor attempt to write off her expenses and bilking the taxpayers.
3. TORONTO MAYOR, ROB FORD, IS CAUGHT ON VIDEO, ALLEGEDLY, SMOKING CRACK COCAINE. (But he is still in office, as the Mayor and worst, he is also planning, for the next election!)
4. TORONTO CITY COUNCILLOR DOUG FORD'S (AND BROTHER OF THE MAYOR, ROB FORD), OWN ALLEGED DRUG DEALING CONNECTIONS, BEFOER HE WAS A CITY COUNCILLOR. (Which also prompted him, to respond, to the allegations, that was also not convincing. Doug Ford, "I probably sold a joint, to friends, here and there, but I am not a drug dealer"). And like his brother the Toronto Mayor, Doug Ford also wants to run in the next Provincial election. That is how audacious they are.
5. THE COVER-UPS, THAT HAS ALSO ENSUED, WITH ALL LEVELS OF THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT, TO HIDE THE CORRUPTION, REGARDING THOSE SHOCKING REVELATIONS;
The Toronto Police Has Investigated, Members of Mayor Rob Ford's Staff, In Relation To A Homicide Investigation, That Is Currently Being Conducted, By The Police, In Regards To The Video, Of The Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, Allegedly, Smoking Crack Cocaine.
is also believed, that a senior member, of the Toronto
Mayor's staff, has shared a tip, with the police, linking the murder, to the video, of the Mayor, allegedly, smoking crack cocaine.
Last week, the Mayor also fired, his Chief of Staff
Mark Towhey, allegedly, for giving him unwanted advice, about the video, according to Adrienne Batra,
a former Rob Ford staff, now a Sun Columnist.
The Toronto police has confirmed that they have been investigating members of the Mayor's staff, in regards to a recent murder, that the police also believed is linked to the video of the Toronto Mayor, allegedly, smoking crack cocaine. As of Monday May 27, the investigation is still ongoing.
"JUDGES SHOULD GO EASY, ON DRUG DEALERS AND USERS NOW, SINCE THE ELECTED POLITICIANS, LIKE THE TORONTO MAYOR, ROB FORD AND HIS BROTHER, COUNCILLOR DOUG FORD, ARE ALSO IMPLICATED IN THOSE ACTIVITIES. SOME WOULD ALSO SAY, THAT IT IS NOT FAIR, FOR THE COMMON MAN, TO FACE CRIMINAL CHARGES, REGARDING THAT ISSUE, WHEN POLITICIANS DO NOT. IF YOU EXCUSE THEM, YOU MUST ALSO EXCUSE THE COMMON MAN". VG.
Toronto Councillor Doug Ford's comments about his own drug involvement will probably hold no weight in a court of law. Doug Ford has commented to CBC T.V. and Radio, that, "I probably sold a joint here and there, but I am not a drug dealer", he said. On CP24 and othe stations, he has lied outright. "I did not sell drugs", he said.
I don't think that the law distinguishes between selling drugs to friends, as opposed to other members of the public, as the T.O. Councillor Doug Ford, has also admitted to do. That is as far as he is also willing to
admit to the allegations of his days as a drug dealer. According to the Toronto newpaper, The Globe and Mail, who had also reported, that the Toronto City Councillor, Doug Ford, was a "very successful" drug dealer, back in the 1980's. That he has allegedly sold drugs to not only individuals, but also to other dealers.
The Globe and Mail report, has also implicated, another of the Mayor's brother, Randy, who was once convicted, of a drug related, kidnapping charge and that a sister, of the Toronto Mayor, Rob Ford and his brother, Councillor Doug Ford, was also shot, in a drug related incident.
As recently as May 22, 2013, the Toronto police, was also called, to the Mayor's home, regarding a domestic situation, involving his sister and brother in law. The police also charged, at that time, the Mayor's brother in law, Scot MacIntyre, with cocaine and heroin possession and also with two counts of threatening death. The same brother in law, was also charged in 2005, with drug and gun related charges.
The Toronto Mayor and his family has been described as the "most powerful political family in Canada, and it is also easy to see why. Rob Ford has enormous influence, with the Toronto police department and I also
suspect, that, he has also used this to his advantage. They also have powerful connections with the media, despite the now sour relationship, that the Mayor has also had with a few of them, lately. Other media that is favourable disposed, to the Toronto Mayor and his brother, Councillor Doug Ford, has included, CP24 and reporters like Toronto Sun reporter Sue Ann Levy. The Globe and Mail editor in chief, is also right to say that the Fords, has some very powerful connections and that this is why its sources, in regards to the drug allegations against them, are so fearful about revealing their identity to the public.
The Ford family is rich and powerful, despite Councillor Doug Ford, referring to himself, as a "little guy", in regards, to why he will also not take any legal actions, against the newspaper, the Globe and Mail, which has come forward with those drug allegations against him. This so called "little guy", as Councillor Doug Ford, likes to refer to himslef, also has a business, which makes, 100 million dollars a year. He even claim to have donated his salary, as a City Councillor. I have a better reason why I believe, that the Toronto City Councillor, do not want to go to court about this. He is afraid of all of the evidence that will also come out.
Councillor Doug Ford, must have also known, about the drug allegations, against him for some time, because he has also commented, that "After 2 years and 200 witnesses, that is all that they can do", referring to the report about him, by the newspaper, the Globe and Mail and regarding its ten witnesses, who had also given the information, to the media about him. Councillor Doug Ford also commented on other media outlets, regarding his drug use. "Did I smoke marijuana?". "Absolutely". Later he changed the story a bit and said, "I may have smoked a reefer here and there". Not that he was absolutely committed to smoking the drug. Ironically, he himslef has also claimed that the '200 witnesses' are his former friends, classmates and people close to him. However, councillor Doug Ford, has also never asked himself, why should 200 people
also lie about his drug dealing past? They can't all hate or dislike him, I don't think?
As for the Mayor's own drug allegeations. Rob Ford has basically laughed it off. "It is ridiculous" was all that he had said for more than a week, until pressured to make a more informed statement. He has hardly said more than that a week later, however, claiming that his lawyer had advised him not to. Instead he and his brother, has spent the time on their weekly radio show, talking mostly about, what a wonderful job he has done, as the Mayor of Toronto and directly avoiding some serious questions about the allegations swirling about the two of them. In my opinion, it would also take, more than their denial, regarding those drug allegations, to espounged their guilt, from the public eyes.
Because of those powerful connections, the public should also not expect to see a release of the video of the Mayor, allegedly, smoking crack cocaine. Those drug dealers with the video, I beleived, has either been long scared off, or paid off, more than the $200,00.00, to hold on to the video. Or now as the police latest investigation about that matter, has now revealed, also dead. I also hope that those who might still have the video, will do the right thing and release it and help to put an end, to the corruption and criminal behaviour, of some of those Canadian politicians.
THE SENATE SCANDAL
What did the Prime Minister of Canada, Steven Harper, know about the $90,000.00, bailout to the embattled Senator Mike Duffy, regarding his personal expenses? He he really not know, as he has also claimed, that his Chief of Staff, Nigel Wright, a former corporate big wig, had also paid the money for the Senator? Duffy had reported that the debt had been paid off, but did not elaborate on how this was done. The public had assumed that he had paid it from his own pocket, not from a bailout, by the Prime Minister, Steven Harper's office and by his Chief of Staff.
Though Harper has denied all involvement in this, Senator Mike Duffy is now alluding to the fact that he did. He wants a public inquiry. The Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper, has flatly
rejected a public inquiry, and instead has hired Deloitte, to conduct an investigation, of both Senators, Mike Duffy and Pamela Wallinm expenses. To me this is like bathing with shit. Deloitte
is such a corrupt corporation, with its own employees not immune to investigation themselves. I certainly knows about its actions personally and has written about it on my blog in other articles.
The Mike Duffy investigation has also revealed that documents were also altered, or watered down, to show a less damning report, of the Senator's claim that he had also used his PEI residence, as his primary residence and not the one in Ottawa. The initial report did not agree with the Senator's claim, but later reports of the investigation also differs from the initial one. Which is also why there are also calls, for an independent investigation, aside from the Senate Committees, The Internal Economy Committe and the Senate's Steering Committe, which had also done the investigation.
