“accountability”

Subject: I’m surprised

November-05-08
Dear Member of Parliament for *,*,
Not that Barak Obama won the the U.S. presidential election since it was the Democrats turn to win but that this Conservative government of Canada has let a golden opportunity to fillet the Liberals and return to Canadian tax payers their E.I.surplus.
I can not understand how this could happen?
This “fifty seven billion dollar E.I. Surplus” would sure be nice for tax payers and the workers and even the government to have in their back pocket at a time like this.
Could you please explain to me in writing how this government can do nothing and has done nothing to return Canada’s 57 billion dollar E.I. surplus to Canadians or did take no action to hold those responsible for “spending” this “rainy day” account and that was supposed to have been “capped at twenty billion dollars” ?
Makes no sense to me why or how our government could let this happen?
Do nothing for working people and wonder why they don’t vote for you or are being “apathetic” toward voting?
What goes around comes around?
Sincerely Yours,

P.S. I did receive a letter from the Minister of Finance any yourself explaining some new bureaucracy being created to babysit the HRDC but I read nothing to explain how the surplus which should now be treated as a criminal theft as far as I’m concerned was to be recovered. Harper is being all talk about “accountability” but seems quite useless when it comes to accounting.

What (EI) Surplus?

October 17, 2008
Dear Member of Parliament for * -*, *, * *
The Conservative finance minister did a decent job considering the previous years of mismanagement of Canada’s finance’s. Canada’s HRDC reportedly had a “fifty seven billion dollar E.I. surplus” that seems to not have been accounted for. Where is this gigantic “surplus” that belongs to Canadian employee’s and employer’s and was supposed to be “capped” at “twenty billion dollars” by Paul Martin a previous finance minister. Did the honourable Ralph Goodale MP do something that we should know about? Rumour has it the surplus was “SPENT” on “other programs” or the “national debt”? The E.I. surplus “twenty billion dollars”, belongs to and should be returned to the HRDC (lump sum, plus interest). The excess surplus (thirty”plus” billion reported), should be returned to those who own and overpaid by lump-sum (all). Even if the country has to go into debt to do so. “Bad Liberals”, the economy- “be damned”. This government needs to “pull-out the stops” to get the “E.I. surplus” back for the tax payers of this country and this finance minister should “pay the price” for not having done so already. Do my member of parliament think this government or any other government in Canada should steal a “fifty seven billion dollars” “rainy day” savings account without any accountability to anyone? I your like me probably not. Flaherty must pay the price for failing to take action to retrieve this “spent”, (I would say stolen), EI surplus? Where is the “Accountability” for those who have been robbed of they’re “rainy day” E.I. savings account? Sincerely Yours,
************

P.S.Fifty seven billion dollars is allot more important than any “Free” trade with Europe or France and if you asked me there should be no agreements with Europe. The EU is a big pathetic financial suck-hole even bigger than the U.S. Get the EI surplus back first, please!
One thing seems certain given the global economic turmoil buffeting Canada: Harper won’t be listening to idle whispers that it’s time to replace Finance Minister Jim Flaherty when he names the new cabinet sometime around Oct. 27.

“Low Voter Turnout” “58%”, update: “59.1%”

October 15, 2008
Dear Member of Parliament for * *, *
“Conservatives do better with a high voter turnout”. – the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper
I was curious about this mysterious and unexplained phenomena of “low voter turnout” in Canadian elections. I checked with the governments official statistics web page and looked for any record of voter turnouts during national elections.
Seems there is some and there really is no such “phenomena” or any “mystery” that points to any kind of “declining voter turnout” since confederation and the election of the first prime minister in 1867.
Other than what I would guess to be an expected decline due to having so many elections consecutively over such a short period of time which could likely leave some people feeling they would rather stay home, I would be one of those people but this year I forced myself.
There is some decline showing in the record of voters going to the polls but only over the last five years and that should be very obvious that this is not a trend.
We do not need this kind of rhetoric being promoted by the government on to the citizens of this country.
Canadians need to be told the truth, there is no real “decline in voter turnout” and contrary to the opinions of our governments and since the confederation of this country in 1867.
Sincerely Yours,

Update: 1891-1898 only about 54% averaged, of Canadians bothered to vote. Don’t our elected professionals have access to this kind of data, poor things, they must need another pay raise.

O look they even held a referendum in 1898 , only 44% bothered to turnout. Surely a crises in democracy must have ensued.

I’ve heard the other “leaders” in Canada’s government telling us this same rhetoric.

GO Maroons!

TORY’S WIN BIG!

October 14, 2008
Dear *, Member of Parliament for *,
Congratulations on your win tonight.
Hope “we” don’t spend this mandate trying to please “the east” or “the Quebecois nation”.
Saw on TV some of the local debate and thought you did a good job, the Liberal was a fairly strong opponent and the NDP voters can also be strong in this area.
I may even buy a Hyundai if the U.S. doesn’t “melt down” due to a lack of North American made auto sales.
Tax cuts for the poor can be difficult when some of “the poor” are receiving seven thousand or more dollars a year in child benefits. I do not know how anyone in this country can really be “poor” or how children can be “living in poverty”, as we seem to hear so much, except for those on general welfare which are not very many at all. Natives of course do not pay taxes and should not be allowed to vote or receive tax benefits nor should be persecuted or put down.
Caledonia is not your riding but is a federal responsibility and needs to be cleaned up according to treaty rights.Be good to the Natives but not their Liberal babysitters, please.
Quebec is not a lost cause but Ontario is where any federal party has to win, unless they are the Bloc Quebecois.
Governments have spent too much time trying to “win in Quebec” and “worrying about the east”, some even seem to think that Ontario is in the east when it is really central from a political view and close enough geographically also.
Ontario has to be central to any winning campaign which I did not see in this election from any party, Jack Layton ran the best campaign at least in Ontario and I think that will show..
Down with the Official Languages Act, Atlantic Accords, “Free Trade” “Corporate Welfare”, the commercial seal hunt in Canada and any special treatment for any other “Nations” and including First Nations in this country.
Enough of the Quebecois attitude of inherited rights that do not even exist except as some Liberals let them. Conservatives should “kill” the Arts and Culture spending in this country and the damned Liberal/UN, Stephane Dion stench called the ‘Kyoto Accord’.
A larger minority is still a victory, I’m against the Mulroney Free Trade Deal and want Karl Heinz Schreiber charged criminally for bribing Mulroney and before this week is done, this a criminal matter and not for a government ‘public Inquirey’ held behind closed doors and overseen by a Judge that was appointed by Mulroney.’Not gonna happen’ and do try to get back the E.I. surplus that the previous finance minister Jim Flaherty seems can be forgotten. I must demand that there be a ‘public Inquirey’ and some “accountability” for Canada’s stolen E.I. surplus.
“Kill” Kyoto and not the dog.
‘Press your nose to the window Danny Williams your on the outside looking in.’, a quote from a blog comment I read earlier tonight that I thought worth repeating.
I just saw your numbers on the TV screen your a runaway 18000 plus to the Liberal, 11,000. You got mine too just in case, I saw the debate and thought * was going to hurt ya, or visa-versa. : l
Were not exactly un-accustomed to going “hands-on” in this town, go Maroons.
I hear that the prime minister likes to read and is interested in the history of professional Hockey, my favourite sport when I was a youth, to watch that is, but I couldn’t play very well, two left feet, Disappointing but we can’t have everything, I went to school with Dave *, my brother and his kids help on his mothers farm near *. Just between you and I, you should try to get a * jersey for the PM or maybe I can ask around and drop one off at your office if I get my hands on one.
Sincerely Yours

A “disgruntled”, “under-employed”, “poor” trucker and ex-cab driver – because I got beat up by “crack-heads” and the police charged me. Waited ten months for a court date date and the Judge threw my case out when I fired my lawyer who wanted me to plead with no witnesses in the court room. Law games, they want to play law games with peoples lives. They cost me my job and I’ll never go back if that’s how cabbies get treated by the law and their employers.

45 million in Arts cuts and what of the “E.I. surplus”?

September 24, 2008
Dear the Minister of Finance the Honourable Jim Flaherty MP,
The Honourable Paul Martin as the Minister of Finance of Canada changed the name of Unemployment Insurance to Employment Insurance and placed a “twenty billion dollar cap” on the intended surplus collected from workers to be used as a “rainy day fund”.
Well there has been no “rainy day” in unemployment in this country since and the surplus as of December 03, 2007 is reported to be at fifty four billion.
OTTAWA–’Canada’s employment insurance “surplus” stands at $54 billion – …….’
I noticed there is a supreme court case now concerning the E.I. surplus, some unions are suing to get these tax funds returned to the rightful owners.
I heard Jack Layton MP and Stephen Harper talking about the E.I. surplus in the House of Commons, the prime minister said that “the Liberals spent the E.I. surplus ten years ago”.
“Spent ten years ago” and yet the Toronto Star is reporting there is a fifty four billion dollar surplus in the account as of December 03, 2007.
My point is, someone should have some questions to answer concerning this “spent” E.I. surplus.
My guess is this Minister of Finance has the most answering to do and since I have heard nothing of this “spent” E.I. surplus in the media, who is asking the questions, the Liberal opposition or the Bloc Quebecois or the NDP? I don’t hear them.
Nobody, including the present Minister of Finance are taking the accountable steps to insure that the over-surplus, the amount over the capped twenty billion, is returned to those who have overpaid.
There should be no more collection of E.I. premiums in this country until the “spent” surplus is collected and those who “spent” the money held “accountable”.
I noticed you are not taking any steps to collect the “54 billion dollar E.I surplus” for Canadians or hold the Liberals “accountable” and either has any of the opposition in the house of commons.
That is not a very accountable government if you asked me.
Why do “we” not fight to get this “spent” ( really stolen) E.I. surplus returned to Canada’s workers and I would add make some political gains doing so?
This is just more of the same-old, same-old, back-room politics, that in my opinion is a just cause for a criminal investigation and a politician or two or three to go to jail.
Is this some kind of joke, the government steals the fifty billion dollar surplus that is supposed to be “capped at twenty billion dollars” in the first place and for “a rainy day” and no one has any thing to say about that, wow?
That is what happens when the robbers guard the bank, eh, Jack Layton?
I know the Liberals and NDP and the Bloc Quebecois have spent two days screaming on television over 45 million dollars in (pretend) cuts to Arts and Culture, give me a BREAK!
54 billion of tax payers money gets “spent” and nobody even takes notice or a second look?

I really do have to question the “loyalty” of Canada’s government and opposition parties.
Sincerely yours,
