WHY DOES THE HOUSE OF COMMONS & MEDIA LET CANDIANS DIE?

June 29, 2010

Thousands of Canadians must go through Dialysis at least 3 days per week for 3-4 hours per session. Now this is a minimum for some it may very. There are other forms of Dialysis but they are all just as time consuming and intrusive on the patients and families quality, and maybe financial life.

When I was on Hemo Dialysis my schedule was 3 days a week with 3 hour sessions.

A session consist of having two needles about 1 ¼” long inserted into a vain called a fistula. You sit there for 3-4 hours. If you are lucky you may have a television there help pass the time. You may read, watch your own DVD player some just sleep.

This is your life your life resolves around your dialysis times.

Yes, you can travel, but, you must first find a dialysis unit that can handle you. The time schedule must be arranged long before you travel.. Oh, yes if you go to the USA, it costs the patient approx $500 per sessions.

When you start dialysis you do not know when or if you will ever get off, of it.

It all depends, will you get a transplant, or will you die waiting.

The cost of dialysis in over $ 50,000 per patient per year. This does not take into account that many (not all) patients can not work.

This means they are disability payments from the Government or have no income.

For a transplant you can wait from 4-7 years, with as many as 10 years.

The problem with Hemo Dialysis is that it is hard on your heart.

It also helps break down your bone density.

So far the only treatment for Canadians with kidney failure is an organ transplants. I say treatment because transplants are treatment, not a cure.

Many wealthier and desperate Canadian travel to India and China for transplant. That they pay out of their own pockets, They pay some citizen for his or her kidney. In China the organs come from executed prisoners.

When they come home ,however, and have problems they are back on the Canadian Health Care system for help.

Some very wealthy Canadians do go to the USA and pay hundreds of dollars for a transplant.

I have no idea how many Canadian do this, nor do I know how much it costs to look after these traveling patients.

What I can not understand for the life of me, is why our Members of the House of Commons will not even allow Canadian discuss changes to our organ donation laws.

What I have been fighting for more than 5 years is a “PRESUMED ORGAN DONATION LAW” for Canada.

They with their partners in the Canadian Media have keep this fight COVERED-UP for those 5 years.

Why, you would have to ask the Prime Minister, or your member of Parliament.

I doubt any of them have ever even seen the inside of a dialysis unit, I bet non of them have ever gone to the family members of someone in their riding and said, who died while waiting for a transplant, and said, well I did nothing to help your loved one get a transplant. and I don’t feel guilty.

I have only been discussing kidney transplants, But there are lung transplants, liver, heart, the list goes on of Canadian’s needing transplants.

Now what do I mean by “PRESUMED DONOR”?

This is a system of Organ Retrieval used in 10-15 other Countries.

This means that everyone in Canada is an Organ Donor at death,” UNLESS YOU SIGN A NON DONOR CARD.”

As you see this is a total flip flop from what we do now.

When only 2% of Canadians bother to sigh their donor card the number of organs for transplant are too low. To add to this all it takes is one relative to say no and the organs are lost.

I totally understand that there are Canadians who have RELIGIOUS reason why they do not want to donate their organs. Well, I fully support their right to do so. I would never want them to go against their religion.

Some Canadians may also know that they have medical reasons why their organs can’t be used, again a reason to sign a no card.

For the rest of Canadians you can know that when you pass on that you will be saving the lives of at least 7 people. You will also improve many more standard of living, including their families, because the need for organs greatly affects the families lives and finances.

So Mr. Harper and all the other Member of the House of Commons why won‘t you discuss this? What do you have against saving lives? I am not even addressing the $3500 pus per month for anti rejection medications a transplant patient must take.

The only two reasons I can come up with. (Other than you saying, it‘s a Provincial Problem, That’s bull shit) The first reason is that you can not come up with a way to make any of your rich friends richer.

The second reason I can come up with is.

YOU JUST DON‘T, CARE. MAYBE YOU EXPECT US TO PRAY OUR WHY TO A CURE?

Pick one reason MP‘s and tell Canadians why you won‘t help save lives!

I urge all Canadians to ask the Prime Minister and your MP.

Why we should have a PUBLIC INQUIRY INTO METRO POLICE ACTIONS DURING THE G20.

June 29, 2010

Why we should have a PUBLIC INQUIRY INTO METRO POLICE ACTIONS DURING THE G20.

Yes, we should have this inquiry.

What we should be looking at is exactly where were the terms of engagement set?

Did they come directly from the PMO? Did the Police Services have different terms of engagement than normal?

Exactly how many of these police where from Toronto, or other cities?

Who was running the show?

Another big question, the Republicans have been pushing a tough 100 year old system of fighting crime.

“CUFF-THEM-STUFF-THEM& FORGET ABOUT THEM” In other words thousand of Canadians locked up for years in God knows how many new jails.

Many Cabinet Ministers were running around talking about thugs and criminals long before the G8 & G20 had even started.

So, my question, is how many of the trouble makers were the usual “MOTHERS FAILURE TROUBLE MAKERS”? But, were there any paid people in the crowd?

It would only take a few to start the trouble by in sighting the crowd then disappear into the wood work.

As I said yesterday, mush of the blame for all of the trouble and violence at the G20

There is only one place to lay the blame for the violence in the streets of Toronto.

The blame is totally at the feet of the PRIME MINISTER, HIS CABINET, AND CAUCUS.

For days all we heard from Harper Republicans the violence on the streets. The summit had not even started. The Leaders were still at home.

It was the REPUBLICANS through down the GUANTELT.

Yes the blame is on them.

STAND UP AND PROTECT YOUR CIVIL RIGHTS

June 28, 2010

STAND UP AND PROTECT YOUR CIVIL RIGHTS I think the action on the Streets of Toronto, Ontario Canada went exactly like the FEDEARL REPUBLICANS want it to. I can see the spin already. We tougher jail sentencing and more jails to protect citizens from this kind of violence. We are likely about to lose more of our civil rights. Not all at once but slowly a little bit at a time. Now is the time to stop these yahoo’s . Stand up to them and say NO, to the lose of rights. Say, No to people being locked up and forgotten about. DON’T LET THE NEO-RIGHT-WING-REPULIANS DO AND END RUN OVER OUR RIGHTS. DOUG McLELLAN ORILLIA ON CANADA

CANADA’S REPUBLICANS & JUSTICE?

June 23, 2010

June 23, 2010

Dear Editor,

CANADA’S REPUBLICANS AND & JUSTICE?

 

The Harper Republicans trying to change our “CRIMIANAL JUSTICE SYSTEM” since they were elected. Now, many of their changes would be law to day except for an illegal election and the Proroguing of Parliament twice in 12 months. The Prime Minister had to hide some how.

From all the babble we are hearing it sounds like they are trying to get a “CUFF THEM-STUFF THEM- FORGET THEM” legal, system.

As a former Correctional Services and Juvenile worker I totally understand the need for jails and keeping some people in jail for a long, long, time.

I have written the House of Commons, and the Media with my suggestions for change, but they have never replied. I have also posted them on FACEBOOK & MYSPACE.

But, to rely solely on locking someone up to solve all crime is absurd.

Are we heading for a justice system that a person accused of a crime is guilty, until they prove themselves innocent?

We have been hearing a lot of chatter from Republican Cabinet Ministers about the trouble that protesters are going to cause at the G-8 and G-20 this week.

I really think they want to use this to be able to say, “see this is why we need tuff laws.

Is it already planned that there will be trouble? Will there be people in the crowd who’s sole job is to cause trouble?

I would advise that the leaders of protest be very careful who is in their groups. I would not let anybody wearing a mask in the my crowd. A mask could very easily mean they are undercover operators, or cowards. If you feel strongly about what you are protesting about then have the balls to show your face.

I have been in many protest, and on many picket lines and never even thought about covering my face. Granted, I did not plan on breaking any laws.

Back to the Republican Justice system. What rights are they going to take away for anyone accused of a crime? Will bail be harder to get, or will it be done away with all together?

It already looks like early parole will be a thing of the past for many. Will they do away with all temporary leaves, and work permits (TPA)?

With the news coming from interviews with the head of CSIS that some Canadian Politicians are corrupted by foreign governments and foreign companies. Well, are any of our Leaders corrupted and if so by what government or company? Will any corrupted politicians be purged from the House of Commons, Legislatures, and Councils?

I would say, that the Republicans, must issue a green paper, with all their purposed changes to our Justice System, so Canadians can read and study the changes long before they rammed through Parliament in a “WHAM-BANG-THANK YOU MAM STYLE”.

Green Paper? That’s what governments use to do when they really cared what Canadians thought. In fact Green Papers should always be used. It shows there is nothing to hide. That is what a totally “OPEN & TRANSPARENT” Government would do.

There was a time when we had a chance to have our say on what was going on in Ottawa.

We saw the truth, not just hear the spin!

After what we hear from CSIS just goes to show me, What I have been saying for years.

I can not believe or trust anything that a Canadian Politician says or does.

Does anybody, believe them now?

MARSHAL LAW!

June 22, 2010

From Highway 60 in the North to Lake Ontario in the South we are about to go under “MARSHAL LAW”!

If the “WAR MEASURES ACT” was still in tack, Harper would have us all living under it.

I really think that anyone who has disagreed with the NEO-RIGHT-WING-HARPER-GOVERNMENT, may find themselves locked up during the G8 &G20.

They will justify that move by saying it was to avoid trouble.

It also sounds like the Republicans are hoping greatly for violence.

 As a regular viewer of Question Period and as a Canadian, who has written more than 1,000 mostly unanswered letters, I am disgusted. I have been thinking lately that you are all, a waste of my time. Why should I even bother trying to communicate with any of you? Non of you are worth, it! Considering the National Media helps you all with COVER-UPS, it proves to me that non of you give a damn. Actually I don’t think any of you give “FUCK”, about anything except making your rich friends richer. If someone is not rich then the hell with them. Many years ago there was a book about Canadian Politics. It was called “RENAGADE IN POWER” Some of you will remember Prime Minister John Diefenbaker. That goes back to a time when Canadian Politicians had class. You are all far from it today. If a book was to be written today it might say, “@#%*& in POWER”. All the names I can think of I could be sued for .

TO MERGE OR NOT TO MERGE

June 11, 2010

The talk about a merger between the NDP & Liberals is the best thing they could do to stop Harper. But, NDP members don’t trust Liberals, and it looks like Ignatieff does not want to do anything to disrupt the IGGY/STEVIE COALITION. I can’t help but wonder if there is going to be a break in both the Liberal , NDP and maybe the Greens to form their own Party. If that happens I hope they are actually a left wing party because at this time in Canadian History there in no such thing as a left wing party. We have a NEO-RIGHT-WING-REPUBLICAN-PARTY, a RIGHT WING PROGRESSIVE CONSERVATIVE LIBERAL PARTY, AND A SOME WHERE OUT THERE NDP. The Green Party? Who knows we never hear from them unless there is an election. I do feel they don’t want to rock anybody’s boat.

NO CANADIANS AFTER 2011!

June 4, 2010

NO CANADIANS IN AFGHANISTAN AFTER 2011 Today we hear talk about Canadian Soldiers staying in Afghanistan after the 2011 date. My opinion is “HELL NO” They are saying our military would stay there in a non military capacity. If the military is there it is there in military capacity. Haven’t enough young Canadians’ lost their lives and had their minds and bodies broken for ever? Haven’t enough families suffered and living with lose? Aren’t enough families dealing with scares that will likely never be cured? If our Politicians are so gun ho to keep military people there, join the army and they be our military group there. There’s a greater chance of me being appointed to the Senate or having little blue men land in my back yard, then them joining the army. As I have always said “LET THE DAMN OIL COMPANIES FIGHT FOR THEIR ON PIPELINE”! The little blue men thing would give me a problem. What would I do when the said, ”TAKE US TO YOUR LEADER” Harper?, YUK!
