The Harper government seems to have scared the bejeezes out of many charitable organizations about how they can spend their money. But much of it was bluster, and when you check the actual changes, very little is different and registered charities can still campaign and lobby on behalf of the issues they care about. The Conservatives used the recent budget to intimidate and threaten charitable organizations, mainly those working in the environmental sector, to stay strictly within the regulation that says they can...

Joe;
Above or Below 30 are very different reads.
Your DD makes us want to look further into many 'givens' in the media coverage as prescribed by the assignment editors.
DD could be sectioned into specific stories with part 1 - media coverage comparisons part 2 - editorial and journalist comments on the story in part 1
Below 30 is more like a blogspot. Maybe, the two need to become separated so your presentation of specific stories, issues, problems, topics and themes is more focused and generates more response from us in a new format - Blogging with a separate log in, yourself as monitor and us as responsible scribes or contributors on your DD. As this arrived late in the evening, many would be unable to read all the DD, and if so inclined, to send you a comment, reply or a personal viewpoint that may add information for readers consideration on a future DD.
Blogging lets us get to it sooner and you do not have to read, edit, copy, paste and organize our items for the traditional below 30 of your DD's.
I hope others consider this in relation to your invitation to comment on 'cz'. CZ should consider this change as well. But, that is my viewpoint so CZ would not think it is all your responsibility.

Subject: To Ron Thornton -DD- Senate

Mr Thornton
 
You've given me some new info re "unrepresented portions of Quebec" due to representation of Territories-- I'll have to check into that.
 
You also mention the real property ownership "within their Electoral District" idiosyncrasy of the rules re Quebec Senatorship
 
23(6) In the Case of Quebec he shall have his Real Property Qualification in the Electoral Division for which he is appointed, or shall be resident in that Division.
 
It is useful to note that the disqualifications (s.31) and (s.23) qualifications for all Senators have net worth and real property ownership aspect.
 
Section 23
(3)
He shall be legally or equitably seised as of Freehold for his own Use and Benefit of Lands or Tenements held in Free and Common Socage, or seised or possessed for his own Use and Benefit of Lands or Tenements held in Franc-alleu or in Roture, within the Province for which he is appointed, of the Value of Four thousand Dollars, over and above all Rents, Dues, Debts, Charges, Mortgages, and Incumbrances due or payable out of or charged on or affecting the same:
(4)
His Real and Personal Property shall be together worth Four thousand Dollars over and above his Debts and Liabilities:
 
Section 31
(3)
If he is adjudged Bankrupt or Insolvent, or applies for the Benefit of any Law relating to Insolvent Debtors, or becomes a public Defaulter:
(4)
If he is attainted of Treason or convicted of Felony or of any infamous Crime:
(5)
If he ceases to be qualified in respect of Property or of Residence; provided, that a Senator shall not be deemed to have ceased to be qualified in respect of Residence by reason only of his residing at the Seat of the Government of Canada while holding an Office under that Government requiring his Presence there.
 
 The unfortunate thing is that this $4000.00 1867 standard has never been adjusted for inflation
(some say it should be 60x others think 80x would be the adjustment)
 
The whole idea was for the Senate (in lieu of the UK's hereditary Lords/titles/ex Officio etc Upper Class) to "equally-by-region" represent the interest of the "propertied-class" as a check on the interests of the un-propertied & far greater in number "everybody" represented in the Lower House of Commoners.
 
 Quotes Re Senate
G.E. Cartier  -"to protect the regional interests and also a power of resistance to oppose the democratic element"
 
Sir James Lougheed - a "bulwark against the clamour and caprice of the mob"
 
Cicero (carved in oak frieze of Cdn Senate Speaker's chambers) - "It is the duty of the nobles to oppose the fickleness of the multitude"

LONDON FREE PRESS - MAY 1, 2012
Ontario is registering long guns
By KRIS SIMS, PARLIAMENTARY BUREAU
http://www.lfpress.com/news/london/2012/05/01/19700796.html

OTTAWA - Ontario is telling sellers of shotguns and rifles to keep paper
records of all the people who buy long guns at their stores -- a move one
firearms advocate is calling a "back-door" long-gun registry. The province's
chief firearms officer has gun sellers writing down buyers' names, numbers
and addresses. "The long-gun registry was used to target gun owners and
confiscate their firearms. That was one of the reasons for scrapping it in
the first place,"said Solomon Friedman, criminal defence lawyer who
specializes in firearms law. "What we see here is nothing less than Ontario
creating a back-door registry."

In the Canadian backwaters, a rarity is the national media beaming in on issues that directly affects the welfare and health of Canadians, including their pocketbooks. With the advent of globalization, trade agreements, the big guys of pharma, chemical, and other international big guys whose middle names stand for profit, are the federal and provincial governments who are facilitating the conditions to kill by means of a slow death, the ordinary Canadians making a living off the land and waters. in either the urban or rural setting.

In today's DD: "Â Suffice to say whatever promises this government makes to protect supply management, to put the interests of farmers ahead of big business, to support agricultural research, to consult with farmers before making major changes to government policies, should be taken with a large dose of ... fertilizer."

From S. McDowall - "Subject: ICELAND FORCES DEBT FORGIVENESS: TOTAL US MEDIA BLACKOUT -

"If you Google �ICELAND FORGIVES ENTIRE POPULATION OF MORTGAGE DEBT you will get About 359,000 Results. Not one of them is a Media Outlet in the US. Not one single Major or Minor news outlet in America has mentioned a single word about this story. "

But alas the link has been shut down, and my inquiring mind was still curious why the national media -the big guys - was not reporting on Iceland. I hit the European pages, and if I had the time I could cobble together the different parts of Iceland debt forgiveness that took place since 2008, and its citizens who refused to bow down to the 'big guys'. Here is one link, that provides other links to Iceland financial magazines and other media, and the real story of debt forgiveness and more importantly, what should be done in Canada, but instead 114 billion dollars was given to the banks. And the debt load of each Canadian increase once again.........Robert Ede of DD can carry this torch: " Many cautionary articles report that the average Canadian has a Debt to (after tax) Income ratio of ~150%
But the Federal government is running debt at ~260% of revenue.
Surely this means that a surge in interest rates would blow the budget totally out of whack?
And ... surely that means that interest rates cannot go up anytime soon.
Why are the professionals "managing the economy" continuing to recommend "do what we say, not what we do"?

"Icelanders who pelted parliament with rocks in 2009 demanding their leaders and bankers answer for the country's economic and financial collapse are reaping the benefits of their anger.

Since the end of 2008, the island's banks have forgiven loans equivalent to 13 percent of gross domestic product, easing the debt burdens of more than a quarter of the population, according to a report published this month by the Icelandic Financial Services Association."
http://jhaines6.wordpress.com/2012/04/13/icelandic-anger-brings-debt-forgiveness-in-best-recovery-story-by-omar-r-valdimarsson/

So back to the Canadian backwaters of issues, a National Post article caught my eye a few days ago, that I travelled wide and far on the Internet, following the dots on the little known crown corporation, set up in 1969 for the fresh water fishery of the Western provinces, including north-western Ontario.

"Imagine getting thrown in jail because you didn't want to sell the product you made each day to the government.

Well, that's what could happen. In Canada.  In 2012.

No, we're not talking about a vital product like isotopes for treating cancer or a new flu vaccine to treat a flu outbreak, we're talking about fish. Caught by fishermen. On the prairies.

For decades, commercial fishermen in northwestern Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and the Northwest Territories have been forced to sell fish they catch in freshwater lakes to a federal government crown corporation called Freshwater Fish Marketing Corporation (FFMC).

The federal government lets fishermen on the east and west coasts sell their catch on their own, but it doesn’t think fishermen on the prairies are quite capable of doing the same. In many respects, the situation brings to mind the Canadian Wheat Board."
http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2012/04/30/colin-craig-free-the-fishermen/

Caught my eye, because of the inaccuracies concerning the fishery, or the myths that is commonly held up as the truth on the fisheries. But what is true, is the Freshwater Fish Marketing Corportation (FFMC), Â and how a crown corporation keeps the fresh water fishermen of the Western provinces living in servitude, to reaped the profitable side for themselves since 1969. It brings to mind, the FFMC is the real McCoy, of the darker side of the fish merchants of the past. Much hated in the historical annals of NL, for good reason, and yet the National Post, presents FFMC in the positive light. Should be shut down, and if anyone disagrees after reading the links below, at the very least, the national media should be digging down and start speaking the harsh truth on the fisheries, connecting the dots to the globalization, trade agreements, and the 'big guys' pushing out the small guys and gals and in the end, at the expense of Canadians' welfare, health and their pocketbook. And adds more to the personal debt, on the corporate welfare handouts to the 'big guys' in the fisheries.

"
I immediately called the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, as they inspect and regulate the industry. They stated that FFMC indeed ships frozen fish (northern pike and whitefish) to China where it is processed. That is why it has "Product of China" printed on it.

It means that what the corporation has done over the years is take jobs from impoverished northern aboriginal fishermen and sent them to China."
http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/historic/31640289.html

"It's not FFMC's fault their overhead expenses and unionized labor have increased so much in the last years. In order to compete in the world fish markets, to access large and long-term markets, we need more flexible rules, have more processing closer to harvest areas for cheaper wages and access to our fish sheds. These markets would help keep the people in our communities working during our fishing seasons. Off-quota fish could be handled and sold by EDL holders and our sheds quite a bit more cheaply than FFMC does. If the fish was sold for 80 cents to $1 per lb. it would be very competitive in the marketplace and because the costs were lower more money could go to fishermen ­ about 40 cents per lb.

When the federal government created FFMC they gave it the power to control all fish sales from our lakes in Manitoba. FFMC will stop anyone from selling fish outside of Manitoba without an export permit. Export permits have a lot of conditions and can be cancelled at any time and are very hard to get from FFMC."

http://www.interlakespectator.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=2135573&archive=true

Unionized labour and wages? In the fish processing plant? It turns out to be $12.00 per hour, for general labour in a crown corporation outfit, and is no different in any fish plant except for the 'big guy' processors, who pay at minimum wage, or slightly over the minimum wage.

And the poor dears, like their counterparts of privately own fish processing plants, are complaining about the state of the work force, and the need to ship out raw fish to China for processing and to bring in foreign workers, who now can be had cheaper than the Canadian worker. Remember 15 percent lower, and no worries about meeting the minimum wage laws. Already happening in a couple of the Atlantic provinces, where NL workers are imported, working as long as 16 hours a day, paying outrageous rental accommodations, and other work related gear, just above the minimum wage of the provinces. Only workers that have proven to be willing to work the long hours without complaint are called back, and than the work force and number of job vacancies are filled by the foreign workers for the 10 month season. As for the North American consumers of fish, one pays dearly for fish, that has now become a luxury food, much like the rump roast one has been eyeing at the local grocery store.Â

A 2010 Senate report:
" In Winnipeg, on 18 September 2009, senior management officials of the Freshwater Fish Marketing Corporation (FFMC) briefed Committee members on its operations and activities. Modelled after the Canadian Wheat Board, the FFMC consolidates the production of many small, isolated freshwater fisheries under one processing and selling umbrella.....................As a single-desk seller of the freshwater commercial fish harvested in western Canada, the FFMC provides access to domestic and international markets for many fishermen in small and isolated fishing communities in the region. The FFMC serves approximately 2,100 fishermen who are predominantly Aboriginal, 82 harvest from more than 265 lakes, 83 and are the primary stakeholders in the Corporation............ Exports represented 81.4% of total sales, worth $62.5 million in 2008/09. The fish are marketed in 12 countries and more than 20 US states through the FFMC's sales force  and brokers. Approximately 70% of production is shipped to the United States, another 15%  is sold in Canada and the remaining 15% is destined for Europe and other countries. The FFMC serves about half of the freshwater fish market in North America, the other half being  supplied by private processors in the Great Lakes fishery and through imports. The Lake Erie  fishery, the FFMC's largest competitor, enjoys a competitive advantage because of vertically integrated processing operations and close proximity to the lucrative US market."
Â
http://publications.gc.ca/collections/collection_2011/sen/yc25-0/YC25-0-403-4-eng.pdf

What is apparent reading the Senate report, it is all about keeping the FFMC and its structure as is - where the price of fresh water fish that harvesters received is the set price minus the transportation costs. The further one is away from Winnipeg, the lower the price of fish. Great Slave Lake is an example and the emergence of the co-op, and much like the newly formed co-op of the NL fishermen, starting with lobsters. The 'big guys', don't like it, and co-ops and its business model represents the biggest threat to the big guys and trade treaties that favours the big international companies, over the small guys.

http://www.uphere.ca/node/120

Back water issues, and whatever the governments and the big guys are saying, in the end they are giving lip service to the ordinary Canadians - talking out of both sides of the mouth - driving down the wages of ordinary Canadians - creating servitude conditions in the regions - to create a large migrant worker force, moving from one low wage job to the next. When one considers the many changes in IE and support services of the federal and provincial levels, the free trade agreements, and the common banking system of central banks that finances the economies of the world for a price, it is not a stretch to see the patterns emerging in the world. Iceland is not in the national media for a reason, nor is the many back water issues and the patterns emerging from them. More on the back water issues, in the next post, and why the Canadian media and governments pays only lip service, and controls the information flow, replacing it with spin and more spin........

CWB Region:  The Friends of the Canadian Wheat Board welcome the May 23rd court date before the Federal Court of Appeal to defend farmers' rights and the rule of law.  

At issue is a ruling by Federal Justice Campbell that Ottawa acted illegally in introducing legislation affecting farmers and their Canadian Wheat Board. On December 6, 2011 the Friends of the Canadian Wheat Board and the farmer elected members of the CWB Board of Directors sought a ruling in Federal Court that farmers' rights to control their own Wheat Board were being illegally removed by the Harper Government.

Federal Justice Campbell agreed with the farmers, characterizing the legislation disabling the Canadian Wheat Board and dismissing its farmer-elected Directors as "an affront to the rule of law", yet the federal government moved to appeal Justice Campbell's ruling.

The appeal will be heard in Ottawa.

Subject: 2 dads: parent vs state Canada & Sweden
From: "Kids First Parent Assoc. of Canada" <listmaster@kidsfirstcanada.org>

KIDS FIRST PARENT ASSOCIATION OF CANADA  www.kidsfirstcanada.org

APRIL 2012

We see escalating conflict between parents and state authorities such as schools and social workers as governments implement the idea of "shared responsibility between and the state and family" for child rearing advianced by the OECD and the World Bank among others.

DAD #1 - Jesse Sansone -  Canada

This Ontario father who volunteers at his children's school was arrested and strip-searched after his 4 yr-old child drew a picture of a gun at school. His home was searched for hours without a warrent. A toy gun was found. School authorities explained that  they "co parent". Ontario's Premier has approved the actions. No apologies have been made.

DAD #2 - Jonas Himmelstrand - Sweden

Jonas Himmelstrand is a Swedish father of 3 who has recently gone into exile to avoid massive fines for home educating his family. He is the head of the Swedish home-learning association and has critiqued Sweden's family policies internationally. Kids First has worked with Jonas to bring developmental psycholgist Dr Gordon Neufeld's work on parent-child attachment  to Sweden.

Jonas discusses these issues in this video.
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/k2STaKWo1kgS5d2U0yd

Sweden is "the model" for family policy according to the OECD. Canada is pursuing that model in the push for all day kindergarten and proposals for school based daycare from age 18 months pushed by UBC's Human Early Learning Partnership and others.

In Sweden over 90% of children 1-5 are in daycare centres (under 15% in Canada)  subsidized by the state at CAD$20,000/yr , parental care receives no support in most cities, and home-education is virtually illegal. Plummeting academic outcomes, inadequate quality of child care, rising domestic violence, youth crime and suicide there appear to be driven by these policies.

Margaret Wente cites an Associated Press story indicating more than 50 per cent of recent university graduates in the United States are either unemployed or working in jobs that don't require bachelor's degrees. Perhaps this is a good reason why Quebec students don't want to get overly indebted by university costs.

Joe--why do we need a Senate at all? Our MPs are supposed to represent us so why have another layer that we have to pay for that supposedly does the same thing? It doesn't matter what type of Senate or which Party is 'elected' we have NO representation in our 'democracy'. Our 'elected' representatives are nothing but puppets for the corporate world and the banksters. We have known for years that 'elected' is a farce and have had the robocalls show that once again. Does anyone actually believe that elections are fair and honest? When someone wins with a 'found' ballot box we know they are rigged. At least they talk about it in the USI. Here we pretend that nothing illegal has been done until the robocalls surfaced.
Sadly until accountability is the key word used for all levels and departments of government having an Elected. Equal and Effective Senate will do nothing but continue the sham in which we live.

2. Zsuzsanna Holland has been in Court for at least 5 years over mercury poisoning from dental amalgams. Please see her message for us at: http://sandrafinley.ca/?p=4977 Zsuzanna's work is for everyone. But it will have particular value for other court cases that will inevitably be launched.

3. Thanks to Randy for sending in: New clues unearthed on how Alzheimer's spreads through the brain.
I (Sandra) followed up by contacting the researcher to ask: "But what causes the "malfunctioning protein"? . See http://sandrafinley.ca/?p=5260

4. Daeran continues to spend days on the mercury issue. He writes: this is the link to the higher resolution video (the first video from the Mercury Jamboree - "Amalgam - Facts, Fiction and Manipulation". See http://sandrafinley.ca/?p=5180 ) Humanity is fortunate to have Daeran on our side!

5. Joseph Bourgault presented his personal experience with mercury fillings at the Mercury Jamboree. As time permits, the video of his presentation will be uploaded – his brush with death, an eight-year struggle in the 1980's to find the cause of his depression, then chronic fatigue, followed by never-ending brain-splitting headaches that would make anyone else contemplate suicide, an allopathic medical community that was unable to find answers, and finally THE RESOLUTION: an article in "Alive" magazine (1992) by a woman who described her experience with chronic fatigue which was really mercury poisoning from dental "amalgam".
Joseph's continuing contribution to our efforts is posted at http://sandrafinley.ca/?p=5255

I titled it as a "how to". Can you suggest a better description? It is a well thought-out, wholistic, practical and valuable guide to activism – how to achieve a ban on mercury fillings. Many thanks Joseph, for sharing this. I begin implementation today. A brush with death would surely focus my thinking and behaviour!!

6. Extremely valuable: Synergistic Toxicity. (Stop the mercury. Start the Cure. From the website "Safe Minds" (Sensible Action For Ending Mercury Induced Neurological Disorders". Posted at http://sandrafinley.ca/?p=5243 )
The presentation at the Mercury Jamboree by Drs Nestor Shapka and David Warwick "Amalgam - Facts, Fiction and Manipulation" mentioned research on mice – "The study took the amount of mercury salt that kills 1 in 100 mice and 1/20th of the amount of lead salt that kills 1 in 100 mice. When these amounts of mercury salt and lead salt were administered, the synergistic toxicity of these two toxins killed 100 in 100 mice."
Daeran, ever curious, tracked down more information. It is basic to living in today's world. EVERYONE should be able to quote it! http://sandrafinley.ca/?p=5243

7. Another important one, also submitted by Daeran: New dental amalgam (mercury fillings) "dramatically increase" the amount of mercury off-gasing. Boyd Haley. See http://sandrafinley.ca/?p=5249.

8. D'Arcy Hande letter to Ministers re Peter Cooney & UN Environmental Treaty on mercury. Thanks D'Arcy! With all this, who can doubt but that we will be successful?! http://sandrafinley.ca/?p=5163
