Dire Warning for Canadians

Never in the history of our country has the Citizens been at risk from their own government!
Click here for the rest of her story
.
News Alert Niagara has been reporting on many horror stories of Citizens suffering and even being destroyed by their own government and an overabundance of government agencies as evidenced and followed in our article: https://newsalertniagara.blogspot.com/2019/05/ontario-auditor-general-addresses.html 
.
You can go the way of so many others by spending your fortune to fight government in our  contemptible lower courts which pick off citizens one at a time or you can join your fellow Citizens in a fight to get your Property Rights into higher courts; higher courts all the way to the supreme court where there is hope for property rights. 
.
Good News! You can now fight back WITHOUT risk! 
.
You can join the 'Constitutional Challenge'!
.
Furthermore, your Financial support to Patent Research will be refunded upon a successful resolution or property rights. 
.
What's the old adage? You can pay now or pay later and because your money hungry government is coming for you on the slightest pretext.
.
Remember the best defense is a good offence!

Lying loser returns

On January 16, 2016 'News Alert Niagara' published an article under the heading 'Official Niagara Baffle Gabregarding an overload of bovine waste emanating from the Niagara Regional Regime and in particular the Regime's former CAO Harry Schlange.
.
Now we find that the lying loser has returned as the CAO of the Niagara Municipality of Grimsby.
How Nice!
.
How could this happen? What due diligence was conducted by those hired and elected by the Grimsby Citizens?
.
With very little effort they would have discovered the true nature of their potential hire. The first thing of paramount importance is the fact that Schlange is not only a liar but a liar under oath; a perjurer in his court deposition. They could have examined the integrity of a individuals who would perjure themselves in order to harm a citizen who disagrees with them or is critical of their conduct. Perjury made worse by the cost to the Niagara Taxpayer of a $Quarter Million!
.
CITATION: Bracken v. Regional Municipality of Niagara Corporation, 2015 ONSC 6934
COURT FILE NO.:  10408/15
.
.
.
What effort did the Grimsby authorities make to check into Liar Schlange's past conduct or his historic adventures starting in Fort Erie before hiring him? 
.
With all the resources of government, why is it that a little media outfit like 'News Alert Niagara' is left to publicly sound the alarm as in the article: A Close Call for Niagara Taxpayers.
.
How can the Municipal Town of Grimsby go from spending hours and hours trying to legally retrieve taxpayers hard earned money all the way down to hiring a disreputable Character like Harry Schlange?
So Sad!







Can you say Trust, Transparency,Integrity?

This man can. And so can the Niagara Regional Regime's Council!
However, 'A Better Niagara' spilled the beans as to a Municipal Government that actually walks the walk when it come to standing up for their constituents. It's called Integrity!
.
Read Mike Williscraft's article in 'NEWSNOW' for the full story on Grimsby's effort to do more than 'forget about it' as juxtaposed with the feckless Regional Regime's bovine waste of 'lets just make sure it doesn't happen again'. 
.
While the Municipality of Grimsby has spent hours and hours delving into the legal possibility of recouping the loss of hard earned taxpayer dollars, the Regional Regime has been wasting hours and hours agonizing over their own political remuneration and an expensive 'Kathleen Wynne style scheme' to defraud the Citizen by changing the pay scale formula to allow pay increases for the Regime's employees at twice the rate of the Consumer Price Index!                                                                                           https://newsalertniagara.blogspot.com/2019/06/which-comes-first.html

.
It is interesting to note that it was senior Councilor Gale who recognized the revolting specter being viewed by the Niagara Constituents and who called on council to "cool it". More interesting is the fact that Chair Bradley sat stoically failing to shepherd his flock; failing to guide his council to get back to the business of addressing the many issues plaguing Niagara and Niagara Citizens. 
.
.
Was Chair Bradley's new gang's first effort to address the many ills that face their Constituents; Their contemptible secrecy; Their corrupt scheduling; Their illegalities and equity theft; Their war on free speech; and their penchant for becoming the arbiter of who is or who is not media? No! Bradley's new gang of what must now be rightly termed as miserable miscreants who decided to attack the taxpayer with the serious government induced affliction of homelessness by attempting to pile on more homeowner taxes for the Regime's benefit.
And when was the last time any of those we have elected or hired addressed the ridiculous overload of Niagara politicians?
.
Was the former Kathleen Wynne Cabinet Minister concerned about the inordinate amount of valuable time attempting to increase taxes to enrich the Niagara Regional Regime as opposed to considering the increased cost burden on the hapless home owner?  
.
Kathleen Wynne and her Cabinet Minister Bradley enriched everyone EXCEPT the Citizen and now Bradley has brought this shame to Niagara!

Following to The Auditor General's address to the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) 'News Alert Niagara' made a May 21, 2019 request for background information on the new NPCA board members.

Niagara's Missing Link

'News Alert Niagara' spent years exposing the corruption of the Niagara Peninsula conservation Authority as evidenced in our past articles.
https://newsalertniagara.blogspot.com/2018/11/a-study-in-elected-corruption-update-8.html
https://newsalertniagara.blogspot.com/2019/05/ontario-auditor-general-addresses.html
.
'News Alert Niagara' Spent decades sounding the alarm regarding the Niagara Regional Regime's propensity to skirt the rule of law for the regime's own purpose. 
http://www.niagarawinnerscircle.com/Inventing-Darkness.html

The Regional Regime works feverishly developing a machiavellian strategy to switch from the Consumer Price Index to the so-called 'Municipal Price Index' to hopefully allow, without backlash, the regional regime the ability to gouge the hapless Citizen with an inflationary pay increases (3.3%) that their Constituents can only dream about! 
https://newsalertniagara.blogspot.com/2019/06/which-comes-first.html
..
After all the articles we have presented regarding the theft of equity being perpetrated on private property homeowners we find a full blown attack by money hungry municipalities. Money hungry municipalities that steal equity to disguise their fear of backlash predicated on the continually and overly raising of property tax.
.
Since the private property of homeowners are the chief source of revenue for municipalities they are coming up with new and creative ways to gouge their taxpaying citizens. 
.
The City of St. Catharines is again promoting their decade long scheme to gouge taxpayers with permit fees and fines regarding the trees on private property
https://newsalertniagara.blogspot.com/2019/05/tree-killers.html
.
https://newsalertniagara.blogspot.com/2014/02/government-control-of-private-property.html
.
Niagara-on-the-Lake's new fees and fines revenue scheme is to order the enclosing of hot tubs, no doubt to be followed by locks on toilet seats and childproof gates on kitchen doors.
.
Good ole Fort Erie wants permit fees (ranging up to $1500) and fines to allow home owners the right to share their home with others. Sad, considering available living space is so scarce! 
What can you expect from an outfit that spends time and money trying to legally dispossess a citizen of his property, which many believe is just a disgusting scheme to allow Fort Erie to gain access to their (17 year) landlocked sub-division?
.
Then we have the city of Port Colborne who is contemplating allowing back-filling a stone quarry with supposedly "CLEAN" fill to below the water table. Ironically Port Colborne has been suffering with what was supposedly safe contaminates for over 20 years and that contamination horror still continues. Astonishing that Port Colborne never heard of Welland's little money maker Mount Carcinogen leaching its poison into Niagara's drinking water! 
https://newsalertniagara.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-welland-love-canal.html
.
.
.
From top  to bottom those we have elected and hired spend an inordinate amount time and money scheming, with the help of their money-burning municipal union, AMO, to look after what matters to them by cheating the taxpaying Citizen but refuse to address the missing link; the elephant in the room; the government induced homelessness and poverty.
http://newsalertniagara.blogspot.com/2017/06/obscene-homelessness-in-niagara.html
.
The Citizens elected authorities to govern - not to run over them!
.
How do we get a better Niagara if we ignore corruption bordering near malfeasance and how can our vote matter if we must vote in ignorance?

Stories you won't hear anywhere else


Decline of the west


Why would any government decide to destroy the Canadian economy just to satisfy China, India, etc., based on climate change? Remember Carbon doesn't understand borders...

According to the Parliamentary Budget Officer, Yves Giroux, if the economy grows the price on carbon must go up. If the economy tanks then people don't have the income to travel therefore the carbon tax (and it is a tax no matter what government states) is merely a means to undermine the Canadian economy. This only supports foreign interests and foreign economies.
.
There is also the issue that this is obviously a tax on rural Canada. The PBO speaks of public transit and how an investment in that means of transportation would decrease the amount of carbon, but at what cost to those who do not have the public transit option? Rural Canada doesn't have that option nor does it have the option of smaller vehicles as rural vehicles are used to travel safely in winter and in most cases are used for work purposes.

In some provinces the price of electricity will go through the roof as it has in Ontario. Ontario is still (and will) continue to pay for horrific electricity pricing because of failed renewable energy production and extremely questionable contracts with foreign entities. Again, more of the failed philosophy and failed planning by governments.

And yet what does these purported plans of carbon taxes and renewable energy costs include - the destruction of the economy. If one must pay an additional 23 cents a litre for fuel or to heat their home; if one must pay, as the people of Ontario are, for renewable energy including the cost to people's health regarding the wind turbines, doesn't that completely do what the government wants - ruin the economy.

One might be of the thought that it is Canadians and Canada's position on the world stage that will be in shambles unless all other countries are placed on the same playing field, wouldn't one?

So why would any government decide to destroy the Canadian economy just to satisfy China, India, etc., based on climate change? Remember Carbon doesn't understand borders...

Editors Note: Those too thick to learn from past failure are apt to repeat the same.

NRG Finds Homelessness Solution


Miracle of miracles in the face of the fastest growing tragedy of seniors in poverty our elected instant experts are espousing solutions to homelessness and poverty such as 'Tiny Houses and/or tents with solar panels'!

Statistics Canada, says that 12.5% of Canadian seniors now live in poverty (predicated on ever increasing property Tax) and, between 2014 and 2015, 75,000 more Seniors becoming low income at a much faster rate than the rest of the population according to the Broadbent Institute.

According to 'The STANDARD' article, the Niagara Region director homelessness services Cathy Cousins said there are 107 beds available within shelters in the city, as well as four family apartments available at St. Catharines homeless shelters through agencies including Southridge Shelter, RAFT and YWCA, plus an additional 35 beds available during the winter months through the Out of the Cold program.

But Wait! It just gets better and better!
.
Just when we are led to believe that the Ontario Liberal CULT of Kathleen Wynne was dead and buried we find that her ghostly influence is alive and well in our Niagara Regional Government (NRG).
.
The Specter of Creepy Katy's influence is evidenced by the NRG's squalid attempt to switch from the 'Consumer Price Index' to the so-called 'Municipal Price Index' covering the regional regimes ability to gouge the hapless Citizen with pay increases (3.3% or more); pay increases their Constituents can only dream about! 
.
The question is: Is this machiavellian corruption derived from the influential and costly Municipal Union (OMA) or simply influenced by a failed Ontario Liberal CULT member's downward migration to political leader of our Niagara Regional Regime?
.
In face of families that are unable to afford repairs to their leaking roof and the fact that so many folks are only $200 dollars from bankruptcy it is totally scandalous for any squalid Regime to even proffer an impoverating tax increase in excess of 20%. 
.
Goes to the tyrannical character of anyone so jaded as to even suggest that ever increasing taxes in the face of ever increasing homelessness should even be considered!
.
It's difficult to accept that Regional Regime Chair Bradley talked the talk of returning trust to the Citizens of Niagara when begging for the chairman's job only to so blatantly betray the Citizens with a Machiavellian Scheme to gain unlimited ability to increase taxes at will.  
.

This Regime should realize that the same constituents that collapsed the last Regime are watching intently the machinations of this Regime! 
.
Question: If the Chair of  the NRG was a failed Conservative hold-over would the mainstream media be so silent on the regime's theft of homeowners equity?
.
Employment loses within the mainstream media is at risk predicated on politically slanted coverage.
