Claims, counterclaims, spin, counterspin what's a person interested in truth and justice in the Senate scandal supposed to do? Here's how to ensure all the evidence comes out about the Senate scandals, and all wrongdoers are held accountable, and this kind of mess can't happen again.
The first problem is that the various senator's cases are currently in the hands of the RCMP, and also the Commissioner of Canada Elections (concerning Senator Duffy and Senator Wallin's election campaign activities for the Conservatives).
The RCMP's independence cheap nfl jerseys is questionable given RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson's widely criticized new policy revealed in April 2013 that aligns his office with the office of the Minister of Public Safety in all communications about the RCMP's actions. Many commentators have raised concerns about how this new policy negatively affects the ability of the RCMP to make independent law enforcement decisions, especially about the actions of government officials.
The office of the Commissioner of Canada Elections has been very secretive about investigation decisions in the past, and has Wholesale NFL Jerseys refused to disclose details about thousands of complaints it has received since 1997. In addition, the Commissioner has made some very questionable decisions about prosecutions of serious violations recently.
The second problem is that the RCMP and Commissioner of Canada Elections may be overseen by federal prosecutors who serve under a assistant deputy minister and deputy minister appointed and controlled by the Conservative Cabinet.
While the identity of the prosecutor(s) overseeing the RCMP investigations is not known, under the Elections Act, the Commissioner of Canada Elections reports to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Brian J. Saunders. While the DPP has a fixed, nonrenewable term of office, he was selected from a list the federal Attorney General developed and submitted to a committee made up of 7 people, 4 of them chosen by the Conservatives. The Attorney General, now Peter MacKay, may also take control of any prosecution file from the DPP at any time for any reason.
As a result, even the DPP is not independent enough from the Conservative Cabinet to ensure integrity in election law investigations, and prosecution decisions.
To ensure all leads are followed, all evidence is considered, and everyone who has violated the law is prosecuted, both commissioners must issue public statements committing that they will follow the evidence in their investigations no matter where it leads (including if it leads to charges against anyone in the PMO, even the Prime Minister), and must confirm that they are reporting to prosecutors who have no ties, or a reporting or direct or indirect control relationship, with anyone appointed by the federal Cabinet, or anyone in any political party.
Overall, the best way to ensure integrity in this situation is to have Prime Minister Harper and the opposition party leaders agree on an independent prosecutor to oversee everything. and Ontario have appointed independent prosecutors. However, the fact that the Premier or provincial Attorney General selected the special prosecutor led to questions about the independence of the prosecutor. That's why the approval of the opposition party leaders is needed to have a fully independent, nonpartisan prosecutor. in similar politically charged situations).
The third problem with how the Senate scandal is being handled is that the current proposal to suspend the three senators without pay violates the Parliament of Canada Act which makes paying MPs and senators mandatory (s. 55) cheap nfl jerseys and only allows pay to be cut after an MP misses the House or Senate more than 21 days in a session (sections 57 and 59).
As well, having the House or Senate hand out penalties is a dangerously unfair process that is wide open to abuse because, like all legislatures, the House and Senate are kangaroo courts undermined by partisan and other political and personal conflicts of interest. No one concerned about having a rule of law (ie. a key basis for democracy) in Canada should endorse the current House or Senate discipline processes in which politicians investigate and judge other politicians.
To have a democratic rule of law in this area, the House and Senate rules, and the rules in every legislature across Canada, should be changed to define exactly what suspensions (of various time periods) are mandatory for alleged and confirmed violations of criminal, ethics, spending and other integrity laws, codes and rules. The suspensions should range from 6 months with pay up to losing one's seat without pay, benefits or pension.
As well, a fair compromise concerning pay for suspended senators and other politicians would be to establish a rule that if a politician is found guilty of the alleged violation, they would be required to return any pay received after the allegation was first made.
These changes to the Parliament of Canada Act, which could be made in a couple of weeks, would make standards of conduct and penalties clear to all, and remove the possibility of any legislature arbitrarily suspending, penalizing or kicking out some members but not others even if their violations are similar.
Finally, the honesty, ethics, transparency and spending and election campaigning rules for Cabinet ministers, their staff, Cabinet appointees, MPs and senators and their staff, are all rife with loopholes that must be closed, and enforcement and penalties need to be strengthened in every area as well.
Until all these changes are made, everyone should expect evidence about wrongdoing by powerful people will continue to be overlooked, less powerful people will continue to be charged as scapegoats, and many people will be let off the hook because of technical loopholes and weak enforcement agencies, and those actually found guilty will face incredibly weak penalties.
Canadians deserve better but the question is whether there is a political party leader in Canada committed to delivering honest, ethical, open, representative and wastepreventing government.

English rugby Josh Smith Pink Jersey clubs announce rival European cup
After months of threatening to quit the European Cup, Europe's premier rugby competition, French and English clubs have announced the creation of a rival tournament, to be known as the Rugby Champions Cup.
English and French clubs announced a rival to the European Cup on Sunday, called the Rugby Champions Cup.
Clubs from the English Premiership and French Top 14 competitions had been threatening for months to create a breakaway competition if European Cup organisers ERC failed to find a solution to their concerns over the current competition's format.
In a statement released on Sunday, the clubs said they had asked their respective leagues to take the necessary measures to create the new competition for next season.
The new competition will be open to Celtic Stephen Curry Red Jersey League teams as well.
"The announcements by Premiership Rugby and the Ligue Nationale de Rugby (LNR) on 10th September confirmed that the Top 14 and Premiership Rugby clubs had instructed their leagues to put in place a new competition in time for the 2014/15 Season," said the joint statement from English and French clubs.
"It is now confirmed that the competition will be named the Rugby Champions Cup.
"The competition will be based on the principles of qualification on merit, a strong competition format, equality between the leagues, higher commercial values for the teams and expansion into new European markets.
"The Top 14 and Premiership Rugby clubs have already confirmed their participation in the new competition and a joint working group has been created to prepare all necessary elements in good time for the 2014/15 season."
English and French clubs have long grumbled that Celtic League teams have an unfair advantage in European Stephen Curry Mens Jersey competition as most of them are guaranteed entry, whereas Premiership and Top 14 teams have to fight hard just to qualify.
It means Celtic League teams can rest players ahead of big European games, safe in the knowledge that they are not compromising their participation for the next season, whereas English and French clubs face weekly domestic battles.
Only the top six in England and France are guaranteed a place in the European Cup, whereas at least 10 Celtic League sides including both Scottish, both Italians and a minimum of three each from Wales and Ireland have a free pass into the competition.
This season, of the 12 Celtic League sides, only Newport Gwent Dragons missed out on the top and most lucrative club competition.
It means that the secondary Challenge Cup is virtually an Anglo French affair, with a few weaker teams from other European countries included, but they are usually out of their depth, even when playing second string line ups from the Premiership or Top 14.
As well as seeing a fairer distribution of places between the three major European Leagues, English and French clubs also wanted a reduction in the number of teams participating in Josh Smith Navy Jersey the European Cup from 24 to 20.
All these measures were rejected by Celtic League teams and the ERC, leading to an impasse that resulted in the English and French taking the drastic breakaway measure.
English clubs were the first to announce they would be pulling out of the European Cup next season, with French teams saying later they would only play in a competition that included the English.
ERC president Jean Pierre Lux accused the English and French of using "guerilla tactics" earlier this week, but that did not serve to soften their stance, leading to Sunday's announcement.

Pittsburgh back on the map
A familiar face in the AFC playoff chase is stirring again.
Left for dead after a 0 4 start, the Steelers remember them? are starting to climb out of that hole and up The Post's NFL Power Rankings on the strength of back to back impressive victories over the Jets and Ravens that have Terrible Towels waving again in Pittsburgh.
And unlike the Raiders, who have the same record but already appear dead and buried in the loaded AFC West, the Steelers know the North where the 5 2 Bengals are no one's idea of a powerhouse is still ripe for the taking.
Pittsburgh was written off as old and thin during its winless start, but injuries now look like the real reason because the improving health of key pieces on both sides of the ball the past two weeks has made a noticeable difference.
That's especially true of rookie running back Le'Veon Bell, whose return from an early season injury has made Pittsburgh's running game formidable again and taken the pressure off Ben Roethlisberger. Bell's 93 yards against Baltimore on Sunday paved the way for the Steelers to run for a season high 141 yards and, well, look like the Steelers again.
The defense is still uncharacteristically struggling to force turnovers (they have only two on the season), but is returning to form otherwise. Pittsburgh has allowed just 22 points the past two games combined after giving up an average of 24 points during the 0 4 stretch.
The Steelers still don't loom as a Super Bowl threat, especially with a remaining schedule that is anything but easy. But they look a lot more like a contender for the playoffs than the No. 1 overall pick, which is a lot better than Pittsburgh could say less than a month ago.
(Last week's ranking in parentheses)
1. Seahawks (2): They don't face another decent team until Dec. 2, so they're staying here awhile.
2. Chiefs (3): They already have won almost as many games (seven) as they did the previous two seasons combined (nine).
3. Broncos (1): So Warriors David Lee Jersey much for Von Miller's return being the tonic for Denver's awful defense.
4. 49ers (4): Four very impressive victories in a row have made that 1 2 start a distant memory.
5. Bengals (5): They don't make it look pretty, but first place is first place especially in a bad division.
6. Packers (6): How many devastating injuries can one team stand?
7. Colts (11): The big win over Peyton's Broncos was overshadowed by the even bigger loss of Reggie Wayne for the Klay Thompson Red Jersey season.
8. Saints (8): Pity the Bills, who must travel to face an angry team that's had two weeks to stew over a giveaway loss to New England.
9. Patriots (7): You'd think Bill Belichick would know the rules by now.
10. Cowboys (14): The defense has actually gotten better without DeMarcus Ware. Go figure.
11. Lions (9): Still no consistency whatsoever from this talented but mystifying team.
12. Chargers (16): Winners of three of their last four, but two games remaining against both the Broncos and Chiefs loom large.
13. Jets (19): It looks as if Mike Tannenbaum left behind more talent than anyone thought.
14. Bears (10): Goodbye, Jay Cutler. Sayonara, playoffs.
15. Panthers (22): Three very impressive victories after an 0 2 start signals this is a team Klay Thompson Pink Jersey that shouldn't be overlooked.
16. Ravens (12): Losers of three of their last four, and the rest of the schedule looks tough. Forget about a repeat.
17. Eagles (13): www.officialbasketballstore.com/david-lee-jersey Maybe they should have re signed Donovan McNabb last month instead of retiring his jersey.
18. Titans (15): Three losses in a row, then the owner dies. A sad month for football in Nashville.
19. Bills (26): There isn't much time to savor the win in Miami with the Saints and Chiefs (combined record: 12 1) up next.
20. Steelers (23): Better health is translating into a better record. Imagine that.
21. Dolphins (17): The new definition of rock bottom: Losing at home to a team whose undrafted quarterback (Thad Lewis) had been waived twice by the Browns.

Biggest Cat in the World Pictures and Videos
One of the biggest cats in the prehistoric era of Earth was the American Lion, but it has been extinct for thousands of years. However, there is proof that breaks the myth that a tiger and a lion can't produce a cub if they breed. It is extremely rare in the wild and the majority of the hybrid offspring, Ligers (Male Lion and Female Tiger) and Tigons or Tigrons (Male Tigers and Female Lions), are bred in captivity. The liger is the biggest cat in the world and it simply dwarfs tigers and lions in size and weight. Their skulls are more than double the size of the heads of its respective parents. Jungle Island in Miami holds a Liger named Hercules that is recognized in by Guiness World Records for being the biggest cat in the world. Hercules weighs over 1100 pounds, over twice the weight of his father; and enough to rival Polar Bears and the Siberian tiger. Hercules still holds the record and is healthy. Sinbad is also a liger that was shown on the National Geographic channel. He is reported to be the exact size and weight as Hercules.
HOW DO LIGERS GET SO BIG?
This is because ligers have imprinted genes present in all feline big cats species. The gene can be expressed maternally or paternally, with great restrictions to species and gender. That's why the Liger is much larger than its 'brother' species, the Tigon.
Female tigers exhibit a gene that causes the pre pubescent growth hormone of ligers to go on throughout its life, but at the cost of them being sterile. Female ligers, however, can still be fertile. They are to big cats like gigantism is to humans, except they can still use their killer biological weapons such as bone crushing jaws and slashing sharp claws. Ligers also have the camoflauge stripes as the trait is passed on from their female tiger mothers. Look at how big they can grow in this Liger video.
The truth is that ligers and tigons have been well known to the world for much of the last two centuries. In A. H. Bryden's published work Animal Life and the World of Nature, knowledge of the way the cats are bred was explained in 1902.
"It has remained for one of the most enterprising collectors and naturalists of our time, Mr Carl Hagenbeck, not only to breed, but to bring successfully to a healthy maturity, specimens of this rare alliance between those two great and formidable felidae, the lion and tiger."
LIGER ATTACK KILLS OWNER LIGERS ARE JUST AS DANGEROUS AS TIGERS AND LIONS
Animal handler Peter Getz was killed by a liger he was taking care of in the Safari's Animal Sanctuary. Such unstable personality changes are not rare when handling these dangerous animals and caution must be taken. In cross breeding between species, the natural DNA process is not natural and many errors occur such as split personality of aggression.
Cat conservationist Tippi Hedren has stated on the National Geopraphic website , "Beyond appearance, the big cats betray their mixed ancestry with a split personality. They like to be in the water (a tiger trait) and are very social (a lion trait)."
Although it's rare, conflict in animal www.officialbasketballstore.com/jeremy-lin-jersey instinct can cause behavioral problems in the cat, especially for zoo keepers.
The Ethics of Cross Breeding Tigers and Lions to Gain Ligers and Tigons
The dangers of cross breeding between species are well known to all zoologists and animal owners. The technique isn't down to science and the problems that manifest over time in these big cats get worse and worse. This is seen a lot in household dogs when they are cross bred with a variety of different species.
Does man have the power to play God? Many would argue that these breeding events do cause in nature but those concerned with the ethics of zoo keeping of animals would point out that zoos are gaining profit by showcasing ligers and tigons.
However, most recognized zoos in the United States prohibit cross breeding between species, especially in the case of tigers and lions. Here is a popular video on Youtube that explains exclusive facts about the dangers of breeding cats of different species . The Octagon Wildlife Sanctuary and the Big Cat Rescue organizations seek to protect the ligers and tigons from the health defects and genetic problems they have acquired.
However, the bottom line is that the liger is the biggest cat in the entire world. (contributor). "Animal Life and the World of Nature" (1902 1903, bound partwork).
