Default Edmonton, Canada = Unsafe, Filthy, Corrupt!

Huckster Don Gimble of the Edmonton Canada Economic Development
group is reported in the media for complaining that they, and others,
are continually complaining worldwide, that Edmonton Canada is
unsafe and filthy as well.

Apart from all the corruption in many city departments, which will
discourage potential business investors.

It seems that city hucksters do not want the truth publicised worldwide
which why they are paying $175,000 for a firm of hucksters to deflect
the bad news..

Gimble seems to want media and others to not publicise many
well-known news srories, such as:

Thugs of the Edmonton Police savagely beating 20 year-old Kristin
Wilson to the concrete sidewalk.

More thugs of the Edmonton police beating up the 66 year old lawyer,
Mr. Fish, for photographing their crominal brutality.

The Edmonton cops who shot a suspect in the BACK, 6 times!!

The crooked cop Jan Cichon, now charged for the THIRD time for
criminal assault on innocent civilians!!

The fact that the local cops have not arrested or charged the serial
killer of 107 women sex trade workers!!
People are now suspecting that this serial killer may in fact be a
cnother crooked cop, or even a judge or lawyer, which is why the
cops do not want to find the murderer, because he is one their own!!

The filth in the city is everywhere, not just from the filthy
panhandlers begging for cash for their next "fix" in the downtown.

Look at all the ice not removed by the city from city sidewalks,
making them very unsafe.

All the garbage on the rods and in city parks.

And, never forget the hundreds of thousands of POTHOLES in city roads,
caused by substandard city road construction, so that the favoured
city contracting firms get repeat business each year, instead of doing
the job properly the first time!!

Corruption is in many departments, usually at the senior levels of

In the Police department there are several cases worth discussion.
City council stupidly agreed to give the police chief another $6.3
supposedly to hire another 27 cops.

Since new recruits start at only $36,000 per man, who gets the extra
MILLION? The chief and his buddies?

Quite apart from the fact that there was in fact a SAVING of more than
MILLION in payroll, because there are 30 overpaid senior cops reiring
year!! The deadwood cops get between $80,000-$140,000,total around $3
while the recruits get only $36K - total of $ONE MILLION!!

Is this more graft and corruption?
The Audtor for Edmonton MUST investigate!!

The local chief cop is quoted in today's Sun as complaining about not
able to raise the pay for new cop recruits.

The Chief is responsible for WASTING OVER $ONE MILLION,
by having already 8 uselss hacks and flacks in the police BS section.
To add insult to injury, they hired hack #9, at an advertised base
salary of over $95,000! That means a taxpayer cost of over A MILLION

That money could have been used to hire at least another 25 new
recruits, who might have been helpful in catching criminals, when not
sitting in coffee shops!

Mind you, with what the chief and deputy chiefs get paid, why can't
they themselves do their own press conferences, since they are
supposed to be fluent in English?

To add insult to injury, the CPRN - Community Police Radio Network -
comprised of thousandfs of stupid local citizens, have to supply their
vehicles, gas,radio equipment and even pay for their uniforms, just to
the work of the cops who should be hired instead of the useless BS/PR

When the media must expose the fact that Deadmonton has an abysmal
record for arresting murderers compared to other cities, taxpayers
have a
right to corelate the squandering of a $MILLION FOR HACKS & FLACKS,
instead of having proper police protection for our skyrocketing

No wonder this city needs the Guardian Angels.
At least they do not waste millions of taxpayer dollars!

This is the same cops who wasted $2.5 MILLION for a doghouse
for 10 mutts!!

The city tax assessment department is another bunch of crooks!
A private citizen had to take the city to tax court, and proved that a
lawyer had had his mansion DELIBERATELY UNDER-ASSESSED
BY HALF A MILLION DOLLARS, for 8 years at $149,500, instead
of $600,000!!

And do not forget the "donations" made by the mare and council to
their business friends, using taxpayer funds.

How about the $650,000 a year given to the West Edmonton Mall
car race in July.
This when the city claims to not have any money for snow removal in
the snow covered winters!!

Or, how about the reported $92 MILLION given to Dell Computers, to
come to Edmonton and create 500 call-center jobs, while HP Computers
set up an educational facility costing hundreds of millions but got
NOTHING from the city!!

And never forget the $600 MILLION from taxpayers given by a former
mayor and council for Triple5 and WEM!!

And huckster Gimble does not want all the bad news publicised.

Guess again Gimble. Now the flood of articles will be publicised even
wider, all around the world.
