Agenda 21 is an action plan of the United Nations (UN) related to sustainable development and was an outcome of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992. It is a comprehensive blueprint of action to be taken globally, nationally, and locally by organizations of the UN, governments, and major groups in every area in which humans directly affect the environment .

CALGARY HERALD - JUNE 3, 2012
Let's inject some sanity into the war on drugs by Colin Kenny
http://www2.canada.com/calgaryherald/news/story.html?id=d2135d21-49cd-4ee7-b9b1-96ad20e67a72&p=2

But are we paying attention in the right way? The Canadian government is
introducing a crime bill that will make possession of as few as six
marijuana plants an indictable offence, punishable by a minimum of six
months in jail and a maximum of 14 years. Meanwhile, liquor stores around
the country are promoting their products with ever increasing advocacy and
sophistication. Remember, alcohol ranked fourth on that list. Marijuana
ranked 10th. So you have to wonder if our failed approach to discouraging
marijuana use among young people makes any sense. Young people are
rebellious, and their rebellions feed off older people's hypocrisy. Most
young people are also smart - they may be able to smell propaganda a mile
away, but they're open to honest education. For the past decade, federal
governments have been funding education about the effect of tobacco on
health. The campaign has been a spectacular success.

The government's investment helped drop the percentage of Canadians who
smoke to 17 per cent in 2010 from 25 per cent in 1999, with the teenage
smoking rate falling to 12 per cent from 28 per cent. Young people listened.
So is the government proudly trumpeting the news of its success? Nope. In
the wake of the happy news, it has decided to kill the entire grants and
contributions program of the Federal Tobacco Control Strategy, leaving
organizations like the Non-Smokers' Rights Association, Physicians for a
Smoke-Free Canada and the Canadian Council for Tobacco Control in free fall.

Prohibition and punishment has clearly failed as an anti-drug strategy.
Education is clearly succeeding on the tobacco front - and, remember, some
experts rank the difficulty of quitting tobacco use with quitting the use of
narcotics. But we're sticking with prohibition and punishment on marijuana.
Harper has acknowledged that the war on drugs isn't working. Speaking to
reporters at the Summit of the Americas in April, the prime minister said,
"What everyone believes and agrees with, and to be frank myself, is that the
current approach is not working, but it is not clear what we should do."

He might consider experimenting with programs that don't involve the use of
the word "war," which is what The Global Commission on Drugs is
recommending. Portugal decriminalized the use and possession of all illicit
drugs more than a decade ago. The rate of usage in Portugal has climbed at
about the same rate as it has in the rest of the world - only the Portuguese
aren't wasting money trying to stem the tide. Sooner or later, we voters are
going to have to be open to a new "smart on drugs" approach. If we don't,
all the violence and squandering of resources will continue. We'll have only
ourselves - and our leaders - to blame.

Committee on Illegal Drugs.

How many Canadians will lose their jobs because the CPC has increased the amount of goods people can bring back from the US?  We are taxed to the max on everything we buy and then our government encourages Canadians to shop elsewhere.  Is this insanity??  Would it not make more sense to lower our taxes and encourage shopping here?

Mulcair, Trudeau, another NEP: the threat to Canadian unity
http://www.theglobeandmail.com/commentary/mulcair-trudeau-another-nep-and-the-threat-to-canadian-unity/article4227722/
Tom Flanagan, The Globe and Mail, Published Monday, Jun. 04 2012, 2:00 AM EDT

In 1980, a newly elected prime minister from Quebec, Pierre Trudeau, decided to mobilize the resource wealth of Western Canada in order to subsidize Eastern Canada. The result was the national energy program (NEP 1), which fixed domestic prices for oil and gas below world levels, levied an export tax to boost federal revenues and confiscated producing assets to give to Petro-Canada.

In 2012, a would-be prime minister from Quebec, Thomas Mulcair, has resurrected the idea of diverting Western Canadian income, but with an environmental gloss. According to statements by Mr. Mulcair and other leading members of the New Democratic Party, there should be a carbon tax to raise federal revenue, environmental controls to limit or even terminate oil sands production, and requirements to refine hydrocarbons in Canada rather than in other countries, even if it's uneconomic. Call it NEP 2.

NEP 1 was an economic disaster that had to be repealed within a few years, but the political consequences lasted longer. It jump-started the development of Western separatism, previously a fringe phenomenon. A separatist candidate was elected in an Alberta by-election in 1982, and his party got over 10 per cent of the vote in the general election that followed within a few months.

Western separatism, however, gradually petered out, not least because Preston Manning convinced Westerners that their grievances could be rectified within Canada. Under the inspired slogan "The West Wants In," many who had flirted with Western separatism were attracted to Mr. Manning's Reform Party. It was a long and winding road, through the Reform Party, the United Alternative, the Canadian Alliance and the merger with the Progressive Conservatives, but those whose livelihood was threatened by NEP 1 became part of a new electoral coalition controlling the federal government through the Conservative Party of Canada – a protracted but ultimately happy ending for those who believe in Canada and Canadian democracy. But the ending might not be so happy if the NDP rides to power on Mr. Mulcair's NEP 2.

To understand the reaction in Western Canada to NEP 2, try a little thought experiment. Assume that a federal party with a leader from Alberta decides it's time to make Quebec's electricity industry benefit all Canadians. Put a stop to the immense environmental damage – drowned river systems that jeopardize fish populations; flooded forests that contribute to climate change; unsightly transmission lines that endanger human health through electromagnetic radiation.

A federal tax on the export of electricity would help redistribute the revenue resulting from Quebec's unmerited rainfall advantage. How further to mobilize Quebec's electricity for the welfare of all Canadians? Electricity is sold through Hydro-Québec at a subsidized price to residents of Quebec (which also increases Quebec's equalization payments), but exported at market prices to consumers in the United States. A better approach for Canadians would be to require Quebec to sell surplus electricity to other provinces at the same subsidized price it offers to its own residents. What a boon to the manufacturers about whom Mr. Mulcair professes concern! Cheap electricity across the country would also help combat global warming by enabling an earlier phase-out of coal-burning power plants.

It's not hard to envision the reaction in Quebec if the federal government tried to adopt such policies. Quebec would be out the door faster than you can say fleur-de-lis – and who could blame them in light of such a co-ordinated attack on their principal industry? By the same token, don't be surprised if there is an outraged reaction in Western Canada to NEP 2 if Mr. Mulcair comes to power. It will be ironic and sad if Western separatism, having been defeated once by the region's own residents, is again resurrected by rent-seeking federal politicians.

INSPIRATION
It starts in Quebec: Our revolution of love, hope and community
This movement may yet fail. It may be co-opted, or lose track of its goals. But there can be no denying that something extraordinary is happening in Quebec. If we, as a society, as a people, are to make a stand against the governments which cut taxes on the rich and corporations and then plead poverty as they dismantle our society, our communities, it will be here. Call me an idealist, call me a dreamer, call me anything you like. But this is a moment in time we will tell our children about. Together, we can start something here that spreads like wildfire across this continent. What happens next is up to us. . . .
If you do not live here, I wish I could properly convey to you what it feels like . . . It is magic. It starts quietly, a suggestion here and there, and it builds. Everybody on the street begins to smile. I get there, and we all -- young and old, children and students and couples and retirees and workers and weird misfits and dogs and, well, neighbours --we all grin the widest grins you have ever seen while dancing around and making as much noise as possible. We are almost ecstatic with the joy of letting loose like this, of voicing our resistance to a government that seeks to silence us, and of being together like this. I have lived in my neighbourhoods for five years now, and this is the most I have ever felt a part of the community; the lasting impact that these protests will have on how people relate to each other in the city is deep and incredible.

From: The Natroses

Groups that the Harper government loves are groups that share many of the messages and ideologies of themselves, and the very self-serving groups serves to become the consultation of the public.


" Lauzon said the group's concerns primarily revolve around the hiring practices � a provincial matter � but Moore and Lauzon ultimately agreed to set up a meeting to hear what Cameron and the LFA have to say. "

Groups such as the Canadians for  Language Fairness, no mater their antics and signs - " It was supposed to be a fundraising dinner like any other, until a group showed up dressed all in black, carrying a black coffin with white stencilled lettering that read: "Democracy is Dead and Here lies the majority."

They get a meeting, but another group with similar signs, would get the boot's end of a police officer, and in Quebec would be against the law. Now who are these guys - The Canadian for Language Fairness?
http://languagefairness.net/


"The contributors of this website are concerned citizens (including public servants) who wish to share information on how Canadas' official language policy affects the cost structures and socialogical climate of Canadians including the careers of current public servants.



Our goal is to influence the public and government policy makers to make rational decisions when it comes to setting language policy."

Sounds nice eh? Â But what are their goals? Had to go to WIkipedia for that answer, instead of the horse's mouth - they site is the pits.

"Government that will over time increasingly discriminate against hiring unilingual English employees. Canadians for Language Fairness maintain that bilinguals are increasingly treated as a special and elite class to the detriment of English unilinguals."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadians_for_Language_Fairness

Now that is their goal, and just wish they would make it clear on their site, beside their obvious hatred for anything Quebec and the French language. At the top of their web site, is the address and something called the Bank and Hunt Club. Interesting, the address matches up to a Chinese restaurant, and as for the Bank and Hunt Club - restaurant reviews? Â Can't get a handle on it, but a certain major Canadian bank has connections to the Bank and Hunt Club.

http://dinehere.ca/ottawa/full-start-chinese-food

Will the near future, bring the false glad tidings as described by the Conservative government in the omnibus of bill C-38 of dismantling French and English as official languages? Time will tell, but I would not put it pass them, when one considers the enabling legislation that has been passed in every democratic country, across the world that concentrates power and enables governments to pass legislation without debate by granting the cabinet the legal authority to enact laws without the elected legislation participation, and another key feature, is the enabling acts all have renewal time frames.Â

And it all started with Germany in 1933, and since than every democratic country has followed the model, that put Hitler in power. The difference between Canada and United States and Nazi Germany is that  Nazi Germany used brutal force, including murder, but what is shared for all democratic countries and 1933 Germany,  enabling legislation ensures economic control over the general populace, and by doing so, ensures compliance by the general populace.

"
Under the Act, the government had acquired the authority to pass laws without either parliamentary consent or control. Unprecedentedly, these laws could (with certain exceptions) even deviate from the Constitution. The Act effectively eliminated the Reichstag as active players in German politics, though the existence of the body, alongside that of the Reichsrat and of the office of President were protected under the Act (nonetheless, the two latter were abolished in April and August 1934, respectively). Together with the Reichstag Fire Decree, which curtailed basic civil liberties and transferred state powers to the Reich government, the Act transformed Hitler's government into a legal dictatorship.

The Act also effectively removed Presidential oversight, as Hindenburg's representative had stated that the aged president was withdrawing from day-to-day affairs of government and that presidential collaboration on the laws decreed as a result of the Enabling Act would not be required.

During the negotiations between the government and the Centre Party, it was agreed that the government should inform the Reichstag parties of legislative measures passed under the Enabling Act. For this purpose, a working committee was set up, chaired by Hitler and the Centre's chairman Kaas. However, this committee met only three times without any major impact and rapidly became a dead letter.

Though the Act had formally given legislative powers to the government as a whole, these powers were for all intents and purposes exercised by Hitler himself. Cabinet meetings were rare after the passage of the Enabling Act, and stopped altogether after 1938. As Joseph Goebbels wrote shortly after the passage of the Enabling Act: .............."

Now Hitler took it too far, but in 1933, the world leaders were more interested in the mechanics of the enabling acts, and soon enough developed their own enabling acts, fine tuning them throughout the decades, to where 2012, Canada's Bill C-38 is all about and only about enabling cabinet to enact laws without the House of Commons, and without consultation of the people across the land. Consultation of the favoured, the elite, and yes such groups as the Canadians for Language Fairness.

The enabling acts of today are - "An enabling act is a piece of legislation by which a legislative body grants an entity which depends on it for authorization or legitimacy the power to take certain actions. For example, enabling acts often establish government agencies to carry out specific government policies in a modern nation. The effects of enabling acts from different times and places vary widely."

Now an image - self explanatory

" Can democracy be blamed for Hitler's rise? No. Other democratic nations around the world were also devastated by the Great Depression, but none converted to dictatorships as a result. Germany was the oddball among these nations, and an examination of its republic reveals its democratic and constitutional weaknesses clearly enough.

History reminds us that there is actually a spectrum of democracies, with strong democracies on one end, and weak democracies on the other. To the extent that democracies fail, it is because the will of the people is not being carried out. The U.S. offers this lesson itself. Blacks were forbidden to vote until 1870; women until 1920; poll-tax debtors until 1964; illiterates until 1965, young people until 1971. And how the U.S. treats its minorities today, as compared to 200 years ago, is like night and day. One remarkable fact remains: where there is a failure of democracy, there is usually a lack of democracy. "

Not confined to the national levels of government, and below is a type of enabling legislation IÂ abhorred, for obvious reasons. Another hidden tax that is never called a tax, and it becomes part of the revenue flows.

Of course, enabling legislation erodes rights and freedoms of the people.
"For 49 years the National Defense Authorization Act was a simple law signed off on by the President to give the Department of Defense the money it needed to get through another 12 months of spending.

This year, the Senate Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich) and senior member John McCain (R.-Ariz.) crafted provisions for the bill that many said would erode the 5th Amendment.

Although Obama initially promised to veto any bill containing the Armed Services amendments, he ultimately signed the full package into law on New Year's Eve while vacationing with his family in Hawaii."

As for Bill C-38, it is another replica of other enabling legislation across the world. And as in Nazi Germany, the people line up like ducks, pick their sides where concentration of power and enable legislation are the main themes, and means to hold the economic powers over their citizens.

An example - "
Little else is said about it. The budget itself gave no hint that such a change was in the offing. Nor is any explanation provided. You would have to look elsewhere to discover that the Act is a Depression-era holdover requiring all businesses doing construction work for the federal government to pay "fair wages," defined as "such wages as are generally accepted as current for competent workmen in the district in which the work is being performed."

So far, so devious. A fairly important change to federal contracting practices, dropped into a mammoth omnibus bill, without notice or context, denying parliamentarians the opportunity to vote yay or nay on it as a separate proposition, but only as part of the government's legislative agenda in toto. Indeed, parliamentarians might not even have been aware of it, had it not been spotted by the NDP's Pat Martin, a former construction worker, who has been raising a stink about it ever since.
"

Of course the nation media, are on the band wagon of what should be called voodoo economics - they must stand on the side that 2 + 2 = 5 or some other number other than 4, to implied and pushed for the simple catch phrase - the law of economics.

"
What that ought to suggest is that wages and incomes do not, in fact, fall to zero in the absence of some legislated floor ­ they are subject to the workings of other laws beside those of the state, including the laws of economics. Put simply, the amount of goods and services we can buy, whether as individuals or, in the aggregate, as a country, will depend on the value of the goods and services we can offer in exchange.

Or in even simpler terms: If we want to be able to buy more stuff, then either we have to make more stuff ­ that is, increase productivity ­ or charge more for the stuff we make. Rising living standards in Canada of late have been fueled less by the former and more by the latter, namely by the higher prices we can command on world markets for the resources we export, notably oil. They have had rather less to do, I suggest, with the Fair Wages and Hours of Labour Act."

The term 'the law of economics' have been tossed around by the Conservative government, along with productivity. Follow the dots, and the connection to the IE changes, work welfare, foreign workers and the fair work wages - much like what happened in 1933 in Germany, that led to the enabling legislation, and the eventual world war two, that encase the world globally. Today, the enabling legislation of the various countries is more nefarious and underhanded, than Hitler's kind, of which many of the leading nations had blessed Nazi Germany enabling legislation, and if not, they turned a blind eye. Nefarious and underhanded, because the enabling legislation of any democratic nation, is enabling the free fall reduction of wages in all low-skill jobs. The omnibus Bill C-38 is an enabling beast, for Canada to join the rest of the democratic countries to lower the wages down to the minimum wage laws of the land. And not as the national media portrays, using the argument that the politicians uses to defend their stances wages will never go down to zero, under the law of economics rules.

The reality is, and many papers have been written on it by the economists sending out warning for the last 20 years, and is all displayed in the stats, The same stats that are now under lock down by the Conservative government.

"  After a decade in which wages and employment fell precipitously in low-skill occupations andÂ
expanded in high-skill occupations, the shape of U.S. earnings and job growth sharply polarized in the 1990s. Employment shares and relative earnings rose in both low and high-skill jobs, leading to a distinct U-shaped relationship between skill levels and employment and wage growth." ... We find that in labor markets that were initially specialized in routine-intensive occupations, employment and wages polarized after 1980, with growing employment and earnings in both high-skill occupations and low-skill service jobs "

http://www.cemfi.es/~dorn/Autor-Dorn-InequalitySpecialization-LowSkillServices.pdf


The above paper was published in 2010, and now 2012, governments throughout the world, are now pushing for enabling legislation to reduced the work wages of low-skilled employment. Not going to work, in my humble opinion, and in Canada, since many of a company in food production and processing, tourism, government and other businesses, forestry and the increasing numbers of part time employment are all operating under the seasonal work banner in some form or another.


Interesting relationships between enabling legislation, the economy, and the political intersections.


Lastly, a bit of background to understand u-shaped relationships found in economics and all kinds of other places.


" On the contrary, it focuses solely on the U-shape relationship between
political and economic reforms. The purpose of our model is instead to identify reasons for this U-shaped relationship."


The abstract:

"Abstract: The relationship between economic and political liberalization  has received a great deal of attention. Yet one crucially important aspect remains largely neglected: the role of reform reversals. Reversals define the  trajectory of political and economic liberalizations and, more importantly,  they define their joint dynamics as their relationship is intrinsically nonlinear. Focusing on democratization and financial reform, we provide a  rationale and empirical support for this oft-neglected stylised fact. We put forward econometric evidence for a U-shaped relationship across countries, over time as well as in a panel setting using a wide range of political and of financial reform measures. "

Subject: : Go Dutch

Why wait for another election (in Canada it's October 19, 2015)

The Netherlands, where six per cent of the population is now Muslim, is scrapping multiculturalism: The Dutch government says it will abandon the long-standing model of multiculturalism that has encouraged Muslim immigrants to create a parallel society within the Netherlands.

A new integration bill, which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament on June 16, reads: "The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model, and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people. In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role. With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society.

The letter continues: "A more obligatory integration is justified because the government also demands that from its own citizens. It is necessary because otherwise the society gradually grows apart and eventually no one feels at home anymore in the Netherlands . The new integration policy will place more demands on immigrants. For example, immigrants will be required to learn the Dutch language, and the government will take a tougher approach to immigrants who ignore Dutch values or disobey Dutch law.

The government will also stop offering special subsidies for Muslim immigrants because, according to Donner; "It is not the government's job to integrate immigrants."
(How bloody true).

The government will introduce new legislation that outlaws forced marriages and will also impose tougher measures against Muslim immigrants who lower their chances of employment by the way they dress. More specifically, the government will impose a ban on face-covering, Islamic burqas as of January 1, 2013. Holland has done that whole liberal thing, and realized - maybe too late - that creating a nation of tribes will kill the nation itself.

The future of Australia , the UK and Canada may well be read here.

READERS NOTE: Muslim immigrants leave their countries of birth because of civil and political unrest "CREATED BY THE VERY NATURE OF THEIR CULTURE."

Countries like Holland, Canada, the UK and Australia have an established way of life that actually works, so why embrace the unworkable? If Muslims do not wish to accept another culture, the answer is simple; "STAY WHERE YOU ARE!!"

This gives a whole new meaning to the term; 'Dutch Courage' - Unfortunately Australian, UK and Canadian politicians don't have the guts to do the same. There's a whole lot of truth here!!!!

ELECTION 2015 IS COMING. A Nation of Sheep, Breeds a Government of Wolves! I'M 100% for PASSING THIS ON!!! Let's Take a Stand!!!
