THE HELL HOLE OF CANADA POST



"
CANADA POST" NO LONGER BELONGS TO THE CANADIAN PEOPLE. 

CANADA POST DOES NOT DELIVER TO THE ELDERLY OR THE HANDICAPPED. YOU MUST USE FEDEX OR PUROLATER.


IF YOU WANT TO SEND A PACKAGE TO AN ELDERLY OR HANDICAPPED PERSON, DO NOT USE CANADA POST. 

MY SON SPENT HOURS ON THE PHONE AND INTERNET ARRANGING FOR DELIVERY OF SOME EQUIPMENT I NEED. 

I WAS TO RECEIVE THE PACKAGE ON THURSDAY OR FRIDAY OF LAST WEEK AT MY APARTMENT IN MONTREAL. THE SENDER WAS TOLD SPECIFICALLY - SEVERAL TIMES - NOT TO DELIVER ON WEDNESDAY AS I WOULD BE IN HOSPITAL THAT DAY.

CANADA POST LEFT A NOTICE FOR ME IN MY APARTMENT BUILDING MAILBOX ON WEDNESDAY - WHEN I WAS IN HOSPITAL - SAYING THE PARCEL IS AT THE POST OFFICE AND I CAN PICK IT UP THERE. 


SEVERAL PHONE CALLS TO CANADA POST WERE FRUITLESS. THEY DON'T CARE IF YOU CAN'T WALK, THEY WILL NOT DELIVER. 

EVEN IF I COULD LIMP ALONG FROM A TAXI INTO THE POST OFFICE USING MY WALKER, I COULD NOT CARRY A PARCEL. BUT CANADA POST WILL NOT DELIVER.

SO I SPENT HOURS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET MY PARCEL. 

CANADA POST WILL TURN IT OVER TO A THIRD PARTY ONLY IF THE PERSON CAN PROVE THAT HE/SHE LIVES AT MY ADDRESS AND HAS RECEIVED MAIL AT MY ADDRESS. I HAVE NO THIRD PARTY LIVING WITH ME AND NO ONE GETS MAIL HERE BUT ME.

A HANDWRITTEN LETTER FROM ME WILL NOT DO. MY MEDICARE CARD WITH PHOTO WILL NOT DO. 

IN FACT, I CANNOT PICK UP MY OWN PARCEL MYSELF BECAUSE THE SENDER PUT IT IN MY SON'S NAME AT MY ADDRESS - AND HE LIVES IN ONTARIO. 

FURTHERMORE, IF MY SON TAKES A DAY OFF WORK AND COMES TO MONTREAL TO PICK UP THE PARCEL, HE WON'T BE ABLE TO GET IT - EVEN THOUGH IT IS IN HIS NAME - BECAUSE HE DOES NOT LIVE AT MY ADDRESS. 

IF YOUR PARCEL FALLS INTO THE HELL HOLE OF CANADA POST, TRY TO SURVIVE ANYWAY.

LUNATICS MURDER FOR THEIR IMAGINARY GODS

  • The bodies of 40 of those fighters and two of their wives were found in two buildings and a mosque in the battle zone.

    WHAT FOOLS THESE MORTALS BE! LUNATICS ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE MURDERING, BUTCHERING, INFLICTING AGONY ON INNOCENT CHILDREN, PRETENDING TO REPRESENT SOME GOD THEY HAVE INVENTED IN THEIR SICK BRAINS. THEIR ONLY GODS ARE GREED, HATE, IGNORANCE AND CRUELTY.

ASSAD'S CRIMES - UNBEARABLE SUFFERING AS CHILDREN STARVE


One-month-old Sahar, her ribs protruding under translucent skin, breathed her last on Sunday in Syria's Eastern Ghouta, where a crushing regime siege has pushed hundreds of children to the brink of starvation.
Only a trickle of humanitarian aid ever reaches this rebel-held region east of Damascus, under a tight blockade by Assad regime forces since 2013.
Eastern Ghouta is one of four "de-escalation zones" set up in May under a deal between backers of rival sides in Syria's devastating six-year war.
But food supplies still rarely enter the region, where medical officials say hundreds of children are suffering acute malnutrition.
On Saturday, the parents of Sahar Dofdaa, just 34 days old, took her to a hospital in the Eastern Ghouta town of Hamouria.
Images filmed by a reporter working with AFP showed a wide-eyed girl with listless eyes and little but skin on her bones.
She tried to cry but lacked the strength to make much of a noise. Her young mother sobbed nearby.
Her skeletal thighs poked out of a nappy way over her size. Placed on the scales, she weighed less than two kilogrammes (just over 4 pounds).
Like hundreds of children in Ghouta, Sahar was suffering from acute malnutrition.
Her mother was too undernourished to breastfeed her and her father, earning a pittance at a butcher's shop, was unable to afford milk and supplements.
Sahar died at the hospital on Sunday morning and her parents took her -- their only child -- to their nearby town of Kafr Batna to bury her.
Her death came after another child in Ghouta also died of malnutrition on Saturday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
"Residents suffer from severe food shortages, and when goods are available in the markets, it's at a crazy price," the Observatory said.
- Ghostly faces -
Medics at hospitals and health clinics in Eastern Ghouta say they examine dozens of malnourished children a day -- and that the number is on the rise.

Images taken by an AFP correspondent show skeletal infants with ghostly faces.
One has breathing difficulties, another has a feeding tube in its mouth and a third has a bandage wrapped around his tiny arm.
Yahya Abu Yahya, doctor and regional head of medical services for Turkish NGO Social Development International, which has several medical centres in Ghouta, said the group's centres had examined 9,700 children in recent months.
"Of these, 80 were suffering severe acute malnutrition, 200 had moderate acute malnutrition, and about 4000 were suffering from nutritional deficiencies," he said.
The UN children's fund UNICEF defines "severe acute malnutrition" as the most extreme and visible form of undernutrition.
"Its face is a child -- frail and skeletal -- who requires urgent treatment to survive," it says.
Abu Yahya said that many children in Eastern Ghouta are suffering from "deficiencies, migraines, vision problems, depression, psychological problems".
According to UN figures, some 400,000 people live in besieged parts of Syria, the majority in Eastern Ghouta.
Despite agreement on de-escalation zones backed by regime supporters Russia and Iran and rebel sponsor Turkey, the region still has very limited access to aid.
Abu Yahya said the region was not receiving basic foods children need, such as sugar, sources of protein and vitamins.
On September 23, a convoy carrying food and medical aid for some 25,000 people entered three besieged areas of Eastern Ghouta, according to the UN.
But Abu Yahya said what aid does reach the region covers just five to 10 percent of the needs of malnourished children.
Sahar was the latest victim of Eastern Ghouta's food crisis.
On Sunday, her father carried the tiny child to her grave. Behind him, relatives walked with Sahar's mother, nearly collapsing with grief.

BIZARRE CRIME IN KASHMIR

Kashmir gripped by fear of 'braid-chopper'

Psychologists say braid-chopper who reportedly targets women is figment of imagination of people struck by conflict
Kashmir gripped by fear of 'braid-chopper'
FILE PHOT

By Zahid Rafiq 
SRINAGAR, Jammu Kashmir
On Friday morning, a mob of more than a hundred people caught hold of a mentally challenged man in northern Jammu Kashmir's Sopore town.
They stripped him, thrashed him, and built a fire in a paddy field.
As the mob chanted, "Kill him, push him into the fire", the young man tried to beg his way out.
The man, who was later identified as Wasim Ahmed, after videos of the incident went viral on social media, became another victim of the growing incidents of mob violence, in a region where rumors are rife about the presence of a mysterious braid-chopper.
Harmeet Singh, the district police chief, said: "We rushed to the spot as soon as we heard of the incident and we rescued the young mentally challenged man from the people."
"He always used to wander around the streets but today the people suspected him of being a braid-chopper," he added.
In the past month, the braid-choppers have allegedly attacked 110 women, in the disputed region, and cut their hair. Almost all the incidents have taken place while the women were at home, and the cut hair have been left at the crime scene.

'He grabbed me'

Tasleema Jan, one such victim of the braid-cutting incidents, told Anadolu Agency: "I had gone to the attic upstairs to bring my son's uniform and I saw a shadow flit behind me."
"I tried to walk down quietly, to tell my husband and son and the neighbors to check our attic but as soon as I put my foot down on the first plank of the stairs, he grabbed me," said Jan, who is in her forties.
She said that attacker strangled her with her son's school tie and when she tried to rip off his black mask, he sprayed something on her face and she passed out.
"My husband and son resuscitated me after 10-15 minutes and my hair had been cut into pieces. I used to have hair this long," Jan said, pointing to her lower back.
Tasleema was the seventh woman to be attacked by the braid-chopper in the Batamaloo neighborhood of the capital Srinagar.
As she narrates her ordeal, an announcement crackles from a mosque loudspeaker asking people to remain vigilant of the braid-choppers.
Outside her house in the narrow lane, a few young men sit on a pavement saying they are part of the neighborhood's vigilante group to protect the dignity of the women and to nab the braid-chopper. 

Neighborhood vigilante groups

"The braid chopper had a close shave last night. He was there at the window of the area president's house and he sprayed something at his daughter but we spotted him right at the moment and he ran away, jumping off the two-story house," says Shahid Rasool, a vigilante in his twenties.
Over the past few months, the incidents have become part of everyday conversation, and detailed descriptions of the braid-chopper have emerged.
The braid chopper, according to the locals, is extremely agile and walks in spring-fitted shoes that allow him to scale not only walls but also houses. He carries with him a spray that knocks down people. Anesthesiologists in the region deny knowledge of any such canned sprays that can make people unconscious.
"I have no knowledge about the existence of any such spray but as an anesthesiologist I can confirm to you that administering anesthesia is serious business and if there is an overdose the person can die," Khalid Feroz, an anesthesiologist, told Anadolu Agency.
He said, so far, there have been no casualties in these reported attacks, or even injuries, due to people falling after losing consciousness.
The doctors believe that there are essentially no braid choppers and blame the whole situation on overwhelming stress and trauma in the region, where conflict has killed more than 70,000 people since 1989 as India and Pakistan fight for control.
India maintains more than half a million troops in the disputed region. Last year, hundreds of thousands of people came out in open rebellion against the Indian rule in the region, which responded by killing more than 100 civilians, wounding over 15,000 and arresting 15,000 people.

 Mental health crisis

"It is a classic case of dissociative disorder and all the doctors know it. There is a mental health crisis in this place with such a long and unending conflict and then the oppression within the society that puts extreme pressure on the women," a senior psychiatrist told Anadolu Agency on the condition of anonymity.
"But what is surprising is that the government instead of coming out and calling it disassociate disorder, which they knew after the first six cases, announced a prize money of $9,000, further feeding this fire instead of quelling it. As a psychiatrist I can explain everything except the government's response," he said.
The psychiatrists refuse to speak on record saying they do not want to become easy targets for a government that is "up to sinister games" and a people "driven to frenzy with fear".
Many locals blame the Indian agencies for the braid-chopping attacks, seeing it as a part of India's psychological operation against Kashmiris.
The separatist leaders of the region responded to the incidents by calling for shutdowns and anti-India protests.
"This government has deep intelligence networks and overwhelming presence in Kashmir and yet they are unable to catch a single culprit. That is why the people are angry, because they are under attack. The dignity of our women is under attack. It seems that the Indian agencies are involved in all this," senior Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq told Anadolu Agency.
The police officially say that they are investigating the incidents and have so far made no arrests. 

Police looking for clues

"Whenever someone commits a crime, he or she leaves behind some evidence in the form of footprints or fingerprints but in these cases, we are still looking for clues," Munir Khan, the Kashmir police chief, told journalists on Friday.
Off the record however, police say they are sure after preliminary investigations that there are no braid-choppers.
In the region, trust in the police, which is seen as an extension of the Indian state, is scarce.
Taking justice into their own hands, angry mobs have attacked innocent civilians, even killing one.
A 70-year-old man in south Kashmir was killed earlier this month when his neighbor suspecting him of being a braid-chopper struck him on the head with a rock. A young crossdresser was caught and beaten by a mob in Srinagar; two middle-aged tailors out to receive cloth from a customer were stripped and bludgeoned; a young man was hung upside down from a tree after being severely beaten. Dozens of other incidents of mob violence have been reported.
The legend of the braid-chopper meanwhile grows and anger gathers people into mobs -- their ire falling on common civilians.

REMEMBERING BLOODY POGROMS IN UKRAINE


This week in Vinnytsia, Ukraine, a monument to Symon Petliura was erected. Looking at a map of the country, he sits in the town's former Jewish neighborhood known as Yerusalimke.

Petliura led the interwar Ukrainian independence movement and during his reign, vicious, bloody pogroms were carried out against Jewish communities.

Sholem Shvartsbard, a Yiddish poet, watchmaker and anarchist, assassinated Petliura in 1926. Read more here about Shvartsbard's trial and acquittal in France.
