Over 90% of federal fund for crime victims’ families went to bureaucrats instead

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Imagine you donated a hundred dollars to a charity, only to learn that ninety three dollars of your money was spent on the people who work for the charity and only seven dollars went to the people or cause you were trying to support.

You don’t have to imagine it.

The Canadian Press reports that a federal fund designed to give financial help to parents whose children have been murdered or gone missing has spent more than 14 times as much on administration costs as it has on actual grants.

Except about that "administration":

The program receives only one applicant a month — and they turn nearly half of them away. What do they do all day?

And not surprisingly, the Liberals' response to this shocking display of incompetence is just about as efficient...

NEXT: We talk a lot about the crackdowns on free speech on campus, but I'll tell you about one university's policy that might not be such a bad idea after all.

Tonight's guests: Professor Ian Lee and I look ahead at the forthcoming federal budget; and Andrew Lawton talks about his interview with Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne about her plan to (allegedly) lower hydro bills.

Prove it. I don’t see any other sources on this topic, and you didn’t even read anything but a strawman. Prove it.

THANKS KEITH BARNES for that link. I think a world war is on the way.

Bureaucratic corruption was sited in the report. Just imagine the predicament we now face in Alberta. The commy princess with the help of her cohorts has built (a work still in progress), a bureaucratic army that if left unchecked will rival the Roman legions of bygone years. Phalanx after phalanx of money sucking leeches ensconced in the system. It will be a task to unravel this web of corruption. Same with the federal libs. Elections can’t come SOON enough.

Great show! I wish Andrew or Ian were running for Premier of Ontario, (they would both make amazing PMs too). I cannot believe the best Ontario can come up with is Patrick Brown. What a mess Wynne, Trudeau, Butts & Notley are making of this country.

It is shameless how those so called non profit agencies blow money on lobbyists and donating their money away.

Keith Barnes,
Keep posting that link over and over until it starts to sink in with readers.

Description of video: “Jihadi Justin Trudeau has moved the M103 2nd reading from April to March 21, 2017 so that he can bring Islamofascism to Canada as quickly as possible.”

He also spoke of anti-Semitism being #1and not being reported as should be, see below for related links attesting to this as a quick search showed.
“Anti-Semitic pamphlets distributed at Western University”
“Jewish community centres in Toronto and London, Ont., were among several across North America that received bomb threats on Tuesday.
Police say the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre in Toronto was evacuated out of “an abundance of caution” in light of threats made in New York, Oregon, Wisconsin, Illinois, Florida, Maryland.
The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs says a bomb threat made against the London Jewish Community Centre was the second it has received in the past two months. "
“While most of the bomb threats targeted community centers in the eastern United States, they were located in a total of 33 states as well as two provinces of Canada. The calls may have originated overseas, authorities believe, and used voice-masking technology, as in this example posted online.”

February 22, 2015
“On Saturday, Al Shabab released an online video calling for attacks on western shopping centers, including the Mall of America in Minnesota, the West Edmonton Mall in Alberta, and Oxford Street in London. … In the video, a man with a British-sounding accent and full face covering calls on supporters of Al Shabab to attack “American or Jewish-owned” Western shopping centers, the BBC reports."

If this were a fund for criminals instead of victims they would never do this much stealing.

Wish Terry was on the radio daily in BC. I’d tune in.
Heres hoping todays political female players Notley, Wynne and Trudeau are gone in the next elections. Their incompetence is shocking. I’d like to be able to say that women are better at politics, but at this point in time that is clearly not the case.
Their instinct to nurture may get in the way of the need to say no for the good of the bottom line. They must spend to make sure all the kids have everything they need. But when you spoil the child of our generation to burden the children of the next generation you’ve gone too far.

Keith Barnes—-Thanks for the M-103 link. At this time, I don’t know what is so important about Ezra going to Israel , when our Canadian Freedoms are up for grabs from Trudeau.
Thanks to Kevin Johnson for his tough fighting spirit on this subject. I feel like we are hand-cuffed ever since Trudeau got in.

Misdirecting funding in the federal admin is a crime so commonplace the AG has given up on trying to see cooked books. This is the age of the kleptocrat — if it holds office it’s stealing from you.

Wynne and her crew of bandits should be behind bars. In a Zoo preferably, we could all go and feed them Peanuts.

- The biggest crooks are in government. They have no problem with stealing from the most vulnerable. Absolutely disgusting.

- Expect to get screwed over this budget & the next budget, After that expect them to try to buy votes with our own money.

- Wynne’s only concern at this point is getting reelected. Patrick Brown seems determined to help her & the Liberals do so. Ontario is screwed for many years to come.

Jerry asks Andrew, “Do you think the Liberals will win anyway?”

I will answer that, Jerry. Yes, YES, YES!

As long as wimpy “Liberal Patrick wearing a blue tie” is in charge of the Ontario PCs, the Liberals will be in power.

Damn! We really need some real friggin’ Conservative in Canada.

Will the real Conservatives step forward please?
