The cost of safety for G8 and G 20

The federal government put the G20 in the middle of Toronto and the cost is below, almost 1 billion dollars. What a waste of money this is when you consider the poor people in Canada and how better to use this money. It is irresponsible to do this and shows a complete disrespect for the people of the country. But it does show the ego of the PM and his need to look big.

OTTAWA (AFP) - Canada has boosted its budget for security costs for upcoming G8 and G20 summits in and around Toronto next month, with some estimates approaching a billion dollars, officials said.The costs were original estimated at 179 million Canadian dollars, but an additional 654 million Canadian dollars was requested Tuesday, for a total of 833 million Canadian dollars (780 million US).

The figures were outlined in a document presented to parliament. They include 321.5 million Canadian dollars for federal police, 262.6 million for the public safety department, 63.1 million for the military and 6.7 million for other agencies.But officials said the costs could be even higher than requested so far.
"Based on a medium threat assessment, we're budgeting up to 930 million (Canadian) dollars," Christopher McCluskey, spokesman for Public Safety Minister Vic Toews, told AFP.

"It costs what it costs," he said. "We're prepared as hosts to respond to any possible threat and ensure all of the delegates' safety."

The Group of Eight summit is to take place in Huntsville in the Muskoka region north of Toronto on June 25-26 and be immediately followed by a G20 summit in Toronto on June 26-27.

The International Cartel that rules us.

Cartel - Definition

A group of companies or countries which collectively attempt to affect market prices by controlling production and marketing. Illegal in the United States and the European Union. Very few major cartels exist; the most prominent example is OPEC, a cartel which can not be considered illegal because it is made up of sovereign states, not companies. also called trust.

Merridian Webster
Main Entry: car·tel
Pronunciation: \kär-ˈtel\
Function: noun
Etymology: French, letter of defiance, from Old Italian cartello, literally, placard, from carta leaf of paper — more at card
Date: 1692

1 : a written agreement between belligerent nations
2 : a combination of independent commercial or industrial enterprises designed to limit competition or fix prices
3 : a combination of political groups for common action

I have been trying for some time now to understand what is going on in the world as we are being internationalized. In Canada it seems we are losing personal freedoms and these are being arbitrated outside our sovereign state. Hence I must conclude that our country is under other’s control. I do not feel comfortable with this idea.

I think the political/Corporate Cartel which includes all the major corporations and the banking empire of the world is working on its own behalf and not on the behalf of people.

The case below is a report from England in the Daily Telegraph. If you take the time to read it you will see that the winners of this fight should it be the BMA and the Pharmaceuticals is certainly not in the best interest of the people of England. Which is my point entirely.

The efforts of the International Cartel in every country of the world, is to direct the masses through media and marginalize all alternate competitors in the name of profits: Banking, chemical companies, military manufacturers, energy, etc. In the end it will mean less freedom of choice for individuals everywhere.

At this time peaceful people the world over have taken to the internet and the streets to bring the information forward and do what they can to influence governments through petitions and at the voting booths that this must stop. It is an uphill battle against a stacked deck.

If this fails I fear for the world will become a battleground as people rise up to claim their freedoms from this oppressive cartel.

Ayn Rand said it all:
" We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.”

Following is the newspaper article. Read it and recognize the propaganda it spews in its efforts to denigrate and destroy this financially viable safe and successful alternate to their expensive questionable cures that have side effects which can even cause death.

Homeopathy is witchcraft, say doctors
Homeopathy is "witchcraft" and the National Health Service should not pay for it, the British Medical Association has declared.

Hundreds of members of the BMA have passed a motion denouncing the use of the alternative medicine, saying taxpayers should not foot the bill for remedies with no scientific basis to support them.

The BMA has previously expressed scepticism about homoeopathy, arguing that the rationing body, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence should examine the evidence base and make a definitive ruling about the use of the remedies in the NHS.

Now, the annual conference of junior doctors has gone further, with a vote overwhelmingly supporting a blanket ban, and an end to all placements for trainee doctors which teach them homeopathic principles.

Dr Tom Dolphin, deputy chairman of the BMA's junior doctors committee in England told the conference: "Homeopathy is witchcraft. It is a disgrace that nestling between the National Hospital for Neurology and Great Ormond Street [in London] there is a National Hospital for Homeopathy which is paid for by the NHS".

The alternative medicine, devised in the 18th century by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann, is based on a theory that substances which cause symptoms in a healthy person can, when vastly diluted, cure the same problems in a sick person.

Proponents say the resulting remedy retains a "memory" of the original ingredient – a concept dismissed by scientists.

Latest figures show 54,000 patients are treated each year at four NHS homeopathic hospitals in London, Glasgow, Bristol and Liverpool, at an estimated cost of £4 million.

A fifth hospital in Tunbridge Wells in Kent was forced to close last year when local NHS funders stopped paying for treatments.

Gordon Lehany, chairman of the BMA's junior doctors committee in Scotland said it was wrong that some junior doctors were spending part of their training rotations in homeopathic hospitals, learning principles which had no place in science.

He told the conference in London last weekend: "At a time when the NHS is struggling for cash we should be focusing on treatments that have proven benefit. If people wish to pay for homoeopathy that's their choice but it shouldn't be paid for on the NHS until there is evidence that it works."

The motion was supported by BMA Chairman Dr Hamish Meldrum, though it will only become official policy of the whole organisation if it is agreed by their full conference next month.

In February a report by MPs said the alternative medicine should not receive state funding.

The Commons science and technology committee also said vials of the remedies should not be allowed to use phrases like "used to treat" in their marketing, as consumers might think there is clinical evidence that they work.

In evidence to the committee, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain said there was no possible reason why such treatments, marketed by an industry worth £40 million in this country, could be effective scientifically.

Advocates of homoeopathy say even if the effect of the remedies is to work as a placebo, they are chosen by thousands of people, and do not carry the risks and side effects of many mainstream medicines.

A survey carried out at England's NHS homeopathic hospitals found 70 per cent of patients said they felt some improvement after undergoing treatment.

Crystal Sumner, chief executive of the British Homeopathic Association (BHA), said attempts to stop the NHS funding alternative medicines ignored the views of the public, especially patients with chronic conditions.

She said: " Homeopathy helps thousands of people who are not helped by conventional care. We don't want it to be a substitute for mainstream care, but when people are thinking about making cuts to funding, I think they need to consider public satisfaction, and see that homoeopathy has a place in medicine."

She said junior doctors' calls for an end to any training placements based in homeopathic hospitals ignored the lessons alternative medicine could provide, in terms of how to diagnose patients.

Estimates on how much the NHS spends on homoeopathy vary. The BHA says the NHS spends about £4 million a year on homeopathic services, although the Department of Health says spending on the medicines themselves is just £152,000 a year.

Two weeks ago, a charity founded by the Prince of Wales to promotes alternative medicines announced plans to shut down, days after a former senior official was arrested on suspicion of fraud and money laundering.

The Prince's Foundation for Integrated Health said its plans to close had been brought forward as a result of a fraud investigation at the charity.

George Gray, a former chief executive of the organisation, and his wife Gillian were arrested by Scotland Yard officers last month in an early-morning raid on their home in North London. medicine/7113054/Homeopathy-medicine-thats-hard-to-swallow.html

Steven Harper, Conservatives and Totalitarian ideas.

Steven Harper says groups like C.R.U.S.H. -Canadians Rallying to Unseat Stephen Harper who oppose his government are subversives and are watched. He sets a dangerous anti-humanitarian precident. In a democracy such as ours disagreement is allowed and in totalitarian regimes it is not.

It is the same when his Government promotes the idea of employees tattling on their company to the Government. Soon children will be reporting parents to authorities. This is not the kind of world I want to live in. Do you?

This years comedy with a predictable ending we can change

Citizens like you and I are losing personal freedoms supposedly protected by our countries. Freedom of choice in the food we eat as labeling is being taken away and you won't know if food is GMO or not. WHO right now can under the pandemic laws that govern many countries like Canada, can rule that we have to get a vaccine and we are obliged to. No exception and enforced. Sounds heavy to me. The banks and money are playing us all to poverty as we support their failures with out money. We are being used. it is called Usury.

This is a plot for a bad scifi film except that is what is going to happen at the G6 and G20 conferences in Huntsville and at the Toronto Convention centre. Our fate as people is being put under new orders of existence (large groups of countries with a central control that can override our Government and country rights. Those agreements are not much about freedom and supporte for ordinary people.

The Canadian Government plus Ontario and Toronto, our tax money, is paying over 150 million dollars for G20 security. It is more than just the odd mad bomber that the barriers are being set up for but for the protesters, mostly pacifistic and wanting to have their understandings and cautions heard. Relegated to official protester locations.

The media will go for the sizzle and forget the steak as they say in show bis. They will show the drama of confrontation and not the messages that should be heard. The most inteteresting aspect is that this is all happening before our eyes. In some countries where one votes and has political parties one would expect a strong opposition to where we are headed as human beings in a country that we seem to claim.

The reason is the media is captured and we are led blindly following for who else do we have to believe in. Any other ideas contrary to the directions of the ruling Industrial, pharmaceutical, chemical and military powers is vilified, distorted and marginalized in the media to deflect any opposing ideas wanting to be presented.

Worst part of a bad movie you can predict the outcome and I get a creepy feeling it is a very unpleasant end of our stay here on earth. Maybe and maybe not. Pass this on if you think as I do and we will mount a great army to turn the battle in our favour. We must act. We are the creators, what we dream we create, what we create we become.

National Security (Funny)

This is very funny.

It leads one to think about what we have become as people and where we are heading as a nation.

tomorrow Listen 12.30 EST. WebTV Liquid Lunch

I will be on this program with Dee Nicholson of Canadian For Health Freedom. Below is what we will be discussing. She is following the bouncing ball of our freedom losses and tells it like it is. Plug in and watch.

The loss of our rights to International agreements is as fatal to our freedoms as losing them through Government bills that seem protective but in fact limit our rights in many areas. It might be a good review to explain this and some of the agreements our Government is signing on our behalf and the ones presently being presented internally to bring us to heal. The fact that you can point to the overall codex plan allows people's eyes to glaze over and lose the salient fact that we are being done in. But that being said it sounds like a topic that all of us can be interested in. Homeopathy is successful because it works and growing as it should as people spread the news to people. Much of what is being passed now will fall as the Corporates are more and more losing credibility and few are adhering to the draconian laws enacted. Remember HMO should have been able to insist we all take vaccines as a pandemic had been declared last year but no country insisted on this and it was a failure of the strong forces against the weaker citizenry that just did not buy into it at any level.

U.S. exempted BP's Gulf of Mexico drilling from environmental impact study

The citizens and the country are not being protected by our Governments.

The Interior Department exempted BP's calamitous Gulf of Mexico drilling operation from a detailed environmental impact analysis last year, according to government documents, after three reviews of the area concluded that a massive oil spill was unlikely.

The decision by the department's Minerals Management Service (MMS) to give BP's lease at Deepwater Horizon a "categorical exclusion" from the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) on April 6, 2009 -- and BP's lobbying efforts just 11 days before the explosion to expand those exemptions -- show that neither federal regulators nor the company anticipated an accident of the scale of the one unfolding in the gulf.

Rethinking the rules

Now, environmentalists and some key senators are calling for a reassessment of safety requirements for offshore drilling.

Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.), who has supported offshore oil drilling in the past, said, "I suspect you're going to see an entirely different regime once people have a chance to sit back and take a look at how do we anticipate and clean up these potential environmental consequences" from drilling.

BP spokesman Toby Odone said the company's appeal for NEPA waivers in the past "was based on the spill and incident-response history in the Gulf of Mexico." Once the various investigations of the new spill have been completed, he added, "the causes of this incident can be applied to determine any changes in the regulatory regime that are required to protect the environment."

"I'm of the opinion that boosterism breeds complacency and complacency breeds disaster," said Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) on Tuesday. "That, in my opinion, is what happened."

Jack Gerard, president of the American Petroleum Institute, said it is important to learn the cause of the accident before pursuing a major policy change. "While the conversation has shifted, the energy reality has not," Gerard said. "The American economy still relies on oil and gas."

While the MMS assessed the environmental impact of drilling in the central and western Gulf of Mexico on three occasions in 2007 -- including a specific evaluation of BP's Lease 206 at Deepwater Horizon -- in each case it played down the prospect of a major blowout.

In one assessment, the agency estimated that "a large oil spill" from a platform would not exceed a total of 1,500 barrels and that a "deepwater spill," occurring "offshore of the inner Continental shelf," would not reach the coast. In another assessment, it defined the most likely large spill as totaling 4,600 barrels and forecast that it would largely dissipate within 10 days and would be unlikely to make landfall.

"They never did an analysis that took into account what turns out to be the very real possibility of a serious spill," said Holly Doremus, a law professor at the University of California at Berkeley who has reviewed the documents.

The MMS mandates that companies drilling in some areas identify under NEPA what could reduce a project's environmental impact. But Interior Department spokesman Matt Lee-Ashley said the service grants between 250 and 400 waivers a year for Gulf of Mexico projects. He added that Interior has now established the "first ever" board to examine safety procedures for offshore drilling. It will report back within 30 days on BP's oil spill and will conduct "a broader review of safety issues," Lee-Ashley said.

BP's exploration plan for Lease 206, which calls the prospect of an oil spill "unlikely," stated that "no mitigation measures other than those required by regulation and BP policy will be employed to avoid, diminish or eliminate potential impacts on environmental resources."

While the plan included a 13-page environmental impact analysis, it minimized the prospect of any serious damage associated with a spill, saying there would be only "sub-lethal" effects on fish and marine mammals, and "birds could become oiled. However it is unlikely that an accidental oil spill would occur from the proposed activities."

Kierán Suckling, executive director of the environmental group Center for Biological Diversity, said the federal waiver "put BP entirely in control" of the way it conducted its drilling.

Agency a 'rubber stamp'

"The agency's oversight role has devolved to little more than rubber-stamping British Petroleum's self-serving drilling plans," Suckling said.

BP has lobbied the White House Council on Environmental Quality -- which provides NEPA guidance for all federal agencies-- to provide categorical exemptions more often. In an April 9 letter, BP America's senior federal affairs director, Margaret D. Laney, wrote to the council that such exemptions should be used in situations where environmental damage is likely to be "minimal or non-existent." An expansion in these waivers would help "avoid unnecessary paperwork and time delays," she added.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill were talking Tuesday about curtailing offshore oil exploration rather than making it easier. In addition to traditional foes of offshore drilling such as Democratic Sens. Robert Menendez (N.J.) and Bill Nelson (Fla.), Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and centrists such as Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and Richard G. Lugar (R-Ind.) said they are taking a second look at such methods.

"It's time to push the pause button," Baucus told reporters.

Staff writer Steven Mufson contributed to this report.

This safety concern bypassed leaves us vulnerable just as forgiving the Pharmaceuticals of any legal responsibility for their vaccines is truly criminal. Instead the Government has funds for this. What is going on???

Think about it - The environmental impact of the spill and its impact on lives in the area will last for years and cost billions. We pay the bill and live with the consequences of bad Government.

It is no different for a child who reacts badly to a vaccine impact on families who are thrown into medical interventions, constant care and sometimes both hospitalization and institutional care plus a lifelong suffering of the damaged person. We pay for that through a Government fund so we pay all that for pharmaceuticals forgiven mistakes.

FEAR - a tool to control people.

Living in Toronto I am afraid to go to Iraq for a holiday. Why?
My first reason is I am afraid I might be killed by terrorists. If I actually lived in Iraq I would be living by the minute with this fear. Fear is what terrorists want; people afraid give way and do what the terrorist wants them to do.

As I watch the media today I am bombarded with fears. Told to be afraid. Told to be cautious. I follow directions through fear and fear mongering by money masters and mortgage lenders, and GMO food creators to save the world from starving and WHO creating pandemics and demanding Flu vaccines for the world or we will be at risk.
All are presented by promoting fear if we do not obey.

Fear is exported by our Governments who are broke and need more taxes but give less services. In the end it is democracy that needs Capitalism and a consumer public to pay for itself. The needs for profit encouraging consumer overindulgence to earn profits for shareholders. We think for a while we are in the cat bird seat with everything we want and now we realize there is a price to pay. Money is being made that promotes this. Fear about no money and poverty keeps us in line.

In responding to the fear of terrorism, Americans and much of the world's people are losing personal rights through "Patriot" like laws that limit personal freedoms and one of those rights is the freedom of choice.

At every major Corporation and in Governments there is stategy afoot to limit our freedom of choice through all media including the internet. A consistent negative published point of view is trying to restrict vitamins, organic foods, medication to follow their dictates by law. Alternates will become illegal.

As we join in larger groups like Nafta and G8 and G20 countries become subject to outside judgments that will be binding on how we the people will respond. A small group of appointed executives somewhere in the world will be able to dictate to us what we must do.

Our citizens will be no longer free to choose.

Fear disorients people and adds huge stress to every life.

Fear mongering leads to control. Obey and be safe is the mantra.

Whether it is the Terrorist or the Government or the International Corporations, we are being continually stressed to follow their edicts and do what we are told or democracy and our way of life will fail.

It is dangerous if we do not resist this movement toward a new kind of dictatorship; one overseen by the Corporate management at an International level and driven by excessive profits at people's expense.
