Learn Something New Each Day or You Are Keeping Above The Curve

Is Your Mind For Rent or Have They Already Seized It?

 

Programming saturates your brain constantly, every minute and area of your brain..  Just lke radio waves cannot be seen, so are other frequency weapons.

If you something new everyday, you will benefit greatly and we should not waste a creative mind.  Do you collect and understand your collection?  Take ten minutes a day minimum and think about a subject you know nothing or kniw little about and be creative.  Stay on the right path.

 

 

 

No his mind is not for rent.

To any God or government

Always hopeful, yet discontent

He knows changes aren’t permanent

But change is

 

What you say about his company

Is what you say about society

Catch the witness catch the wit

Catch the spirit, catch the spit

 

His world is… the world is

Love and life are deep.

Maybe as his eyes are wide.

Exit the warrior

Today’s Tom Sawyer

He gets high on you

And the energy you trade

He gets right on to the friction

 

Do you understand the hidden meaning in this song by RUSH?.

Why Does HandyDart Allow Abuse of the Handicapped, Veterans and Seniors?

HANDYDART   ABUSES  DISABLED  – TRANSLINK  NEEDS  TO ADDRESS THIS NOW !!!

By  Sandford Tuey – Canada

British Columbian taxpayers fund Translink, which controls funds to a special disabled transportation shuttle bus program called ‘HandyDart’.  BC taxpayers pay for the HandyDart buses, personnel and services provided 365 days a year.  On paper this is a prime example of the generosity and compassion of Canadians for helping mobility restricted individuals (Persons With Disabilities ‘PWD’, seniors and anyone who cannot use the regular bus system).  So why did Translink give the HandyDart dispatch contract to an American entity = MVT?  Why send Millions of Canadian tax payer’s dollars down south?

The HandyDart mandate promises to transport Persons With Disabilities, veterans and the elderly DOOR-TO-DOOR service.  Their shuttle buses seat approximately between six, plus two wheelchair bound people, up to 10 passengers plus two wheelchair PWD.  This service is vital for these people to get out into the community, go to hospitals and doctor appointments.   HandyDart service does not always live up to their claim, since it is not run as efficiently as it could be.  I personally believe this is due to the American Dispatch (MVT) group controlling the drivers, bus schedules and telephone booking system.

HandyDart introduces itself to new users with a letter, after you prove you are a Person With Disability (PWD) or a senior that has medical mobility problems recommended by their doctor.  The company assigns you a number and their letter explains the ‘Booking a Ride’ process.  Attendants may travel free with authorized HandyDart passengers and some PWD’s require their assistance, others take their wives shopping or traveling all over the lower mainland, which is fine.  After all, these users have to have a life too.

HandyDart  proudly proclaims that it is a premium DOOR TO DOOR service, yet they do not live up to their hype.  For example:  HandyDart does not accept Annual Transit Passes, War Amputee or CNIB (Canadian National Institute of the Blind) passes or the Regular Bus Pass Card which are not valid on the HandyDart system.  The fees are $2.75 one way for 1 & 2 zones, 3 zones is $4 and for 4 or more zones $5.50 per trip.  So if you want to travel to and return home from a hospital 4 zones away, it will cost you $11.  When compared to a regular bus trip cost of $ 2.75 for unlimited zones on a bus for a time limit, HandyDart seems to be is ripping off the disabled.  Add to this that a PWD (Person With Disabilites) used to receive an annual bus pass for $45 per year, but the BC LIEberals (Christy Clark’s anti-marriage and anti-disabled party) jacked the bus pass cost for the Disabled from $45 a year, up to $91 a month.  THAT IS AN INCREASE OF $1,047 / year!!!

This unbelievable unfair increase steals food out of the mouths of low income Disabled people, Veterans and poor seniors across BC.  This change reduces the already small amount of money a HandyDart passenger can afford to buy food with, causing even more hardship for these sick and ill passengers.  Allegedly the profit revenue grab is going into general BC revenue and most likely was used to give the BC MLA’s a raise!   The BC LIEberlas must not be elected ever again, unless you do not care for your grandparents and mobile restricted fellow Canadians.   So if you want to screw your grandparents and the disabled veterans and elderly vote BC LIEberal!

CONCERNS THE PASSENGERS HAVE:

  1. I talk to all the HandyDart bus drivers, but out of 11 I have met so far only 6 could talk and drive at the same time.  I thought this was the age of Multi-tasking, but I guess not.  These single minded individuals ranged from mid-thirties to mid sixties.  I was surprised the younger drivers could not drive and talk and some even have to pull over when the dispatch contacted them over the radio.  This concerned me but it is not my position to say anything.  One time, while talking to another passenger, the driver raised his voice and demanded that we both be quiet.  We both were surprised and the other passenger shut up.  I was quite offended and reminded this driver, from Eastern Europe (Kosovo),  that as long as Canada allows Free Speech I will use it.   He told me to be quiet because he needed to concentrate on his driving.   I said again, “In Canada we have FREE SPEECH and I will not be quiet as long as Free Speech is legal in Canada”.  I calmly explained that no one has the right to suppress my rights or anyone else’s rights. I further explained that I have friends that risked their lives as United Nation PeaceKeepers in Kosovo, Bosnia and Serbia and that he should be thankful Canadians were there when their citizens were desperately needing to stop the Ethnical cleansing, or he may not be alive today.  He might not have been able to migrate to our wonderful nation, if it wasn’t for UN Canadian soldiers risking their lives to protect strangers, things may have been very different for him and his family.  The lower mainland of Vancouver was hit with five major blizzards this winter 2016-2017. The first snow storm was perfect for Christmas, but none of the cities were prepared for it.  The municipalities do not have the necessary city equipment to deal with such an enormous amount of snow.  Side streets and back allies were left uncleared and HandyDart buses were not prepared to deal with such high risk driving.  All the drivers I talked to were very concerned with getting stuck and having to call dispatch to send another bus to transfer passengers on their bus to an unstuck bus.  This would be a major hassle and undertaking for the passengers, who can barely walk on flat dry ground, then there is the issue of wheelchairs moving in slush and snow.   Then they would have to contact a tow truck to get the bus unstuck.  I started to look at the HandyDart bus tires and could not believe how dangerously bald some were.  Several drivers informed me that all buses have only All Season tires and very rarely get Winter tires, even in extreme snow and ice conditions.
  1. HandyDart is owned by Translink, a Canadian company that operates the regular bus system and Skytrain. For some unknown reason Translink transferred the HandyDart Administration and Dispatch to an American company MVT.  This is not logical since millions of Canadian dollars for this BC contract are sent to the USA.  I don’t understand why!!  Many drivers complain that the US company treats the passengers and drivers with disdain.  That MVT does not care about the riders or the drivers and this is unethical and outright evil.  Translink must return the contract to a Canadian group as soon as the present contract is over.  Several times, that I am aware of, the dispatch (who organize trips and notify drivers who to pick up, where to drop passengers off or if the disabled person has an assistant or if they are in a wheelchair) make mistakes. These errors could turn deadly as some Persons With Disabilities are Diabetic and must eat at certain times or  their blood sugars get out of whack and can send them into a coma or even kill them.  I personally experienced delays more often then I wish and have actually been forgotten by dispatch several times.  Once, three of us were forgotten and our half hour pick-up window had passed and I had to phone HandyDart dispatch, who apologized and promised to send another bus.  Half an hour later a bus picked up the other passengers but put me on a bus that already had five people who were let off before me at their homes, all the way up in North Coquitlam (way out of my way as I live near Metrotown Mall on Kingsway Street, Burnaby.  Then, on the way to go to my home, the US dispatch added two new pick-ups who were driven to their destinations before me, which delayed me even more.  I usually get picked up at the RCH (Royal Columbia Hospital in New Minister) around 12:30 PM and get home around 1:30 – 2PM.  This trip I got home at past 3:30 PM.  I was shaking from too low of blood sugar from not eating lunch soon enough.  I am lucky I did not go into shock or a coma or die!  When a HandyDart bus is not available, the Dispatch sometimes sends a taxi to complete your trip. This is good and bad, which also require a HandyDart bus ticket.  The taxi drivers rarely get out of their cabs, especially if it is raining, snowing or cold.  The taxi drivers do not go to the door and buzz you at home if you are not waiting on the sidewalk out front of your pick-up address (some HandyDart drivers don’t do this either).  Instead they wait about 5 minutes and then drive away, since they get paid for the trip either way.  I have had a cab company call me once to come down, since he was out front.  I do not struggle out to the curb anymore because of extreme cold, rain, snow, hail or slush.  HandyDart service is supposed to be Door-to-Door but it is not in this case.  Most HandyDart drivers will escort passengers to their front doors to ensure no one falls down, which happens.  I never know when a taxi may be picking me up, so I am forced to struggle out to the curb and stand out in the freezing cold, snow, blizzard and pouring rain, while waiting for a HanyDart or a taxi.   If I don’t, I may miss my ride to Dialysis, which would be life threatening.
  1. HandyDart is supposed to phone riders if they are not going to be at their predetermined pick up address on time or if they have arrived and the passengers are not out front. I have been riding HandyDart since September 2014 and never once have I ever received a call when the arrive would be.  When I call HandyDart to request a call, the US dispatch promises they will call me,  but never do.  Why?   I explained my predicament that I require to have HandyDart drivers and taxi drivers come to the front door of my apartment building so I can remain dry, warm and safe waiting in the lobby and to escort me to the bus.  Some HandyDart drivers do this but there is no consistency on this service or times they arrive or deliver passengers.  The US dispatch said they would, yet many times my ride was changed to a taxi and I have had to go out to the curb after my pick up window has elapsed, wondering if a taxi has come and gone.  This needs to be addressed and corrected immediately, for I am not the only one who has been forgotten or just not been informed that the taxi is outside waiting.
  1. The taxi company contract should be renegotiated or transferred to a more dependable company. Bonnies taxi has mainly drivers from India or Pakistan, who I enjoy talking with.  I have experienced drivers who when I enter their taxi, already have the pay meter running, which sometimes has started at over $5, when it normally is to start at $3.50 and only begin charging once the passenger enters the cab.  Several times I have taxi drivers extend the trip to RCH by driving the long way, instead of the quicker regular course the HandyDart drivers take to the hospital.  This increases the trip cost and rips off HandayDart, which gets it’s funding from BC taxpayers.  When I tried to explain this to the American Dispatch, nothing was ever addressed and this abuse continues.

The complaints from disabled and senior passengers are so many, that a few riders have created a group that notifies HandyDart and Translink/MVT of these abuses and problems, hoping to have them corrected, but after every meeting, nothing seems to be done about this.  The disabled continue to be kicked around like old unwanted baggage.  It is time for a major change and to not waste Canadian dollars on a foreign company (MVT) who are providing this service more for the cash than to help passengers.  It is long overdue to give the HandyDart Dispatch contract back to Canadians!!  ASAP!

WARNING: Our hospitals Are Killing Canadians

CANADIAN  HOSPITALS  KILL 30,000  PATIENTS ANNUALLY

YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED  I WAS NOT ON THE INTERNET FOR  9 DAYS –  HERE’S  WHY.

FIRST:  I must admit that Canada’s hospitals and medical system is way better than the majority of other nations.  Most nations like the USA, Philippines, etc, require all patients Prepay before any consideration of the patient’s problem will be addressed.  It is a fact that some hospitals in Prepay nations are ‘For Profit’ and refuse some patients who do not meet their ‘financial minimum qualification’ and turn away anyone who does not earn a minimum amount of annual income.  Most patients in the Prepay countries buy private Health Insurance, but high premiums leave Millions of low income families and individuals out.  .Some areas of the world do not even have a hospital or are located in war zones and been destroyed.

Luckily, Canada’s medical system is partially covered by the Canadian tax payers.  Most citizens think that all Canadians receive Health Benefits, yet  thousands fall through the cracks if they can’t pay their monthly payments.  The federal government sends funds to each Province and Territory and these funds are allocated to their individual regions.  Certain things are not covered under the different Province’s coverage and other Provinces run their Health industry differently from other Provinces and Territories.  Provinces control and govern their own Health care, yet a Canadian can go to any other Province or Territory and is still be covered.  The federal government provides large sums of money to each Province & Territory, adding to the money that helps these regions to cover some of their costs.   Even though our hospitals are almost the best in the world, there are some concerns:

  1. The First Responders were prompt in all my 911 calls (30+ ove ten years) and always arrived within an hour or earlier.  However, hospital waiting times can take 4 hours or more (I arrived at St. Pauls hospital by ambulance and was stuck in a hallway for just over four hours.  No pain relief, no doctors came to me and I thought the administration had forgotten me, even though I was suffering in agony from a major Pancreatic attack.  The emergency ward doctor took 3 more hours before deciding to give me Morphine for the pain but I didn’t see a nurse for another half hour, but these attacks are the worst pain I have ever experienced.  I’ve had 3 broken bones, which I thought were a 10 out of 10 for pain.  Pancreatitus is a whole new pain scale.   I thought I was dying and it made broken bone pain only a 2, Pancreatitus is a 15 out of 10.  It is obvious that our hospitals are understaffed and could not handle larger volumes of patients from a serious natural disaster, terrorist attack victims or anything that would cause 20+ patients simultaneously.

 

  1. I admire and respect Nurses the most!  These hard working staff deal with the patients 24/7 and have to do some of the worst jobs (cleaning up vomit, stopping blood leaks/deal with feces and other gross things).  Yes, the cleaning staff are supposed to sterilize the areas, beds, equipment and ensure that everything is clean, but when the $20/hour professional cleaners were let go and replaced by minimum wage housekeepers, the cleanliness of hospital deteriorated and the hospitals are filthy (thank the BC LIEberals – Gordon Campbell for this problem).  From my experience, the minimum wage, new minority citizens, do not do a good enough job and about 20% cannot speak fluent English or French, making nurses and patients frustrated because it is hard to explain what needs to be cleaned up.  Several times I have met the housekeepers and they responded with, “No speak English.”  Why are our Health system hiring people who cannot understand French or English?

 

  1. On Tuesday, three weeks ago, a third of the Kidney Renal nurses were coughing, sneezing and sniffling. Government policy in BC forces mandatory vaccines upon all hospital staff, including all nurses.   Those that opt out of the vaccine, must wear a mouth mask at all time (yet they don’t).  While my nurse was inserting the two, almost 2 inch long and quarter inch wide needles into my right forearm, she sneezed onto my fresh open wounds.  Within two days I became extremely ill and slept most of the two days because I caught  the flu from her and began coughing constantly.   I felt so bad, all I could do was sleep because of no energy, but on Thursday, I had to get up at 5am to catch the HandyDart bus to head to Royal Columbia hospital in New Westminster.  During my dialysis session, my nurse noticed my blood pressure was too high and my temperature was 39.8 C  (too hot).  I was instantly admitted into an isolation room due to having been diagnosed with SEPSIS.

 

  1. Sepsis is a very dangerous disease with a kill ration of 25%. It occurs when an infection goes wrong or gets directly into the blood.  Normally the immune system of the body is able to fight the germs and overcome the infection.  This pathogen was at some point able to get into the blood & tissues.  The term sepsis is frequently used to refer to Septicemia (blood poisoning).  Septicemia is only one type of sepsis.  Bacteremia specifically refers to the presence of bacteria in the bloodstream (viremia and fungemia are the terms used for viruses and fungi).   SEPIS IS A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, as it can put the life in danger, if it is not acted on, you will die.  Three hours into my dialysis a nurse noticed  I was not functioning and when she asked me my name and birth date, I was unable to talk, due to overheating of my brain.  Sepsis caused me to have a 39.8 C temperature and doctors were worried that my organs will fail, so they covered me in bags of ice to lower my temperature to normal.  Two freezing nights that I don’t remember much of.  On the third day, I became coherent and realized I was freezing and pushed the bags of ice off of my body.  I was groggy and sweating still but the antibiotics were working.

 

  1. Clostridium difficile bbacteria (C Diff), is highly contagious and every person has this deadly bacteria in their stomach and colon, but when a body is too sick to defend itself, these bacteria grow exponentially and take over organs. It causes black liquid fire-hose diarrhea and projectile vomiting and you die from dehydration.  Trust me, I’ve picked up C Diff twice (St, Pauls & Royal Columbia) because ALL Canadian hospitals are not being sterilized well enough and the housekeeping employees are allegedly, incompetent plus understaffed.  Would you want to clean up vomit and feces for minimum wage?  When your brain signals that you need to have a bowel movement you may get 5 seconds or less before black foul smelling liquid gushes out of you.  I had to wear diapers for the entire time I had this nasty problem.  Even though I had a commode beside the bed within one step of me, most times the shit would leak and I would have to buzz for a nurse to clean me up and replace a new diaper.  I’m 58 and having to wear diapers is humbling and embarrassing.

Even though I could not function during the first four days (I was barely able to state my name and birthday when asked).  I do not recall the first two days and I did not eat anything for 6 days and only picked at my meals the remaining three days in hospital, because the cafeteria chefs did not provide me with meals catered to my diabetic and renal limited diets.  They served little portions, poor quality meals almost un-edible and would not provide me foods that  I am allowed to eat.  This ticked me off, as I requested daily to not be served pork and to please serve me with a diabetic & renal compatible diet.  Only on the last day did they finally serve me food that I could eat.  I had to consume very small portions of food I would never eat at home, ever!

Since I fasted for 6 days, when I got home I ate only a vegan diet, like my wife does.  My goal is to be a vegan for 21 days and reevaluate how I feel.  I must admit, it has only been 17 days and I feel a bit better.  I still have complications from Gastroparesis, Pancreatitis and other physical difficulties that limit my balance, walking, depth perception, night vision, taste, smell and hearing.  Gastroparesis also makes you nauseated and vomit unexpectedly.

The moral is to take caution when in a Canadian hospital and out in public.  Don’t touch anything without gloves or use sanitizers to clean your hands immediately after.  I have become used to having to play the cards life deals me, sure wish I got better cards!

 

IF  YOU  WISH  TO  GET SICK = GO TO A HOSPITAL

Are We In the Endgame to World War 3?

Superpowers use Proxy Armies to Seize Territories, National Assets and Control of Nations

By  Sandford Tuey Canada

Most people don’t believe that we are in the third stage of the next world war.  It started decades ago with Currency Wars, then escalated once the internet was created and Cyber Wars began and are a constant threat for every nation to this day.  This major war is presently a conventional stage but could escalate into WW3 nuclear devastation anytime.  Why are citizens of the Earth kept in the dark by our governments and mainstream media?  Simply put, those ruling the world don’t want us to know or have panic and rioting in the streets.

ISIS, ISIL and Al Queda were created by the AngloAmerican empire and are proxy armies. Russia uses Iran and Syria as their proxy armies in the Middle East, since Syria allows Putin’s navy access to the Mediterranean Sea.  Crimea is also extremely important for Russia and that is why they seized control of it once they realized NATO was changing the Russian puppet government of the Ukraine in the AngloAmerican’s favour. The AngloAmerican empire has more bases abroad and more proxy armies than all the world combined and is in empire building mode.

A good example is Iraq and Afghanistan. There are many more NATO proxy armies like Saudi Arabia, Columbia, etc.   North Korea is China’s main  proxy army, as is, South Korea for NATO.  The super powers know that if they go head-to-head in a conventional war, WW3 will be the nuclear holocaust result.

Never before in history have the superpowers created conflicts wherein they each could kill actual American or Russian or China military soldiers and assets.  The reason Canada and other NATO member personnel have been sent to strategic nations like Ukraine, Balkan States, Japan and othere important nations, is to corral their perceived enemies and competitors in.  Think of this as a trip line where an enemy nation’s military force accidently steps over this line in the sand.  If they do this NATO triggers it’s code of defense and the major war cannot be held out of the public’s mindset or prevented.

This of course, could lead to the destruction of our planet.  Check out RealityForDummies.com to find out what you are not being told

It causes black liquid fire-hose diarrhea and projectile vomiting and you die from dehydration.  Trust me, I’ve picked up C Diff twice (St, Pauls & Royal Columbia) because ALL Canadian hospitals are not being sterilized well enough and the housekeeping employees are allegedly, incompetent plus understaffed.  Would you want to clean up vomit and feces for minimum wage?  When your brain signals that you need to have a bowel movement you may get 5 seconds or less before black foul smelling liquid gushes out of you.  I had to wear diapers for the entire time I had this nasty problem.  Even though I had a commode beside the bed within one step of me, most times the shit would leak and I would have to buzz for a nurse to clean me up and replace a new diaper.  I’m 58 and having to wear diapers is humbling and embarrassing.

Even though I could not function during the first four days (I was barely able to state my name and birthday when asked).  I do not recall the first two days and I did not eat anything for 6 days and only picked at my meals the remaining three days in hospital, because the cafeteria chefs did not provide me with meals catered to my diabetic and renal limited diets.  They served little portions, poor quality meals almost un-edible and would not provide me foods that  I am allowed to eat.  This ticked me off, as I requested daily to not be served pork and to please serve me with a diabetic & renal compatible diet.  Only on the last day did they finally serve me food that I could eat.  I had to consume very small portions of food I would never eat at home, ever!

Since I fasted for 6 days, when I got home I ate only a vegan diet, like my wife does.  My goal is to be a vegan for 21 days and reevaluate how I feel.  I must admit, it has only been 17 days and I feel a bit better.  I still have complications from Gastroparesis, Pancreatitis and other physical difficulties that limit my balance, walking, depth perception, night vision, taste, smell and hearing.  Gastroparesis also makes you nauseated and vomit unexpectedly.

The moral is to take caution when in a Canadian hospital and out in public.  Don’t touch anything without gloves or use sanitizers to clean your hands immediately after.  I have become used to having to play the cards life deals me, sure wish I got better cards!

SHRINKFLATION & THE COMING DEPRESSION

SHRINKFLATION  IS A SIGN OF CONSUMER TRICKERY & THE COMING  USA TARRIFF

By  Sandford Tuey – Canada

Let’s say you go to the local store, purchase some of your favourite sweet treats, and hand over your hard-earned cash.  When you open the packet you notice that the chocolate bar has been reduced in size or the bag of chips is smaller or is the same size but there are less chips inside, why?  Once you check the weight and realize the truth.  You have become a victim of shrinkflation: a phenomenon where popular treats reduce in size or quantity while remaining at the same price, but you’re paying the same amount for less.

This has been occurring too often in recent times. Back in November 2016, the redesign of the iconic Toblerone bar caused outrage, as the gaps between chunks grew, leaving it unrecognizable – more a scattering of hillocks than a lofty mountain range. Consumers complained about the change, it quickly emerged that many other products also become suspiciously smaller and an increase of shrinkflation is rampant in North America.  In the last week, the word shrinkflation has spiked in use because of the many products consumers buy that are not the same anymore, as it was revealed that bags of Maltesers and M&Ms were all shrinking for the second time in a year.

This is not fair for consumers who want to know why.

  1. The price of ingredients rise and therefore the producers of your favorite products reduce the size of their goods to reflect this increased cost without increasing the retail sale price.
  2. Some unethical companies choose to reduce the size of their items just to increase profit margins as corporations have to inform their shareholders they are making dividend payment ever quarter. Basically you are sending more of your money to their shareholders but get less of your favourite products.
  3. The Canadian or American currency is being devalued against other world currencies, which cause the companies who produce your favourite treats to pay higher prices for ingredients, transportation, management, etc.. It is common knowledge that North American money is on the front line of the present Currency War.  The US dollar is being artificially propped up as of 2016, but should it lose more of its worldwide value, this reduction will directly negatively affect our Canadian dollar drastically.

Canada exports 75% to 80% of our products and service into the United States of America and should President Trump initiate his proclaimed import tariff (35%), our products will be too high and priced out of the US market.  This would be devastating to the Canadian government’s revenue as less tax would be collected, but even more so for companies, their Canadian employees and other industries associated with the moving of our goods down south.

The unemployment estimates are staggering with figures around 30% to 40%, increasing the unemployed level never seen before.  This means we would skip a Recession and plunge directly into a major Depression.  The great depression had unemployment rate of 15% to 25%.  It is obvious how bad things would get in Canada.  That is why Canada must diversify our export base and increase imports into nations like China, India, and other countries we do not sell into as much as we could.

As soon as the USA decides if they will slap the 35% import tariff against Canadian products or grant us a reprieve or a decreased tariff, everyone will have this unemployment sword having over Canadians and our fragile economy.  Get ready to tighten your belts.

Sending Messages On Canadian Legal Tender

Is It Illegal To Write On Canadian Legal Tender?

A friend of mine is an artist and draws dialog balloons on Canadian bills.  Some of the things he writes, that makes the Queen and other Prime Ministers on bills reveal the truth.  He doesn’t curse, nor use derogatory statements, but he has given our monarch phrases like, “I own all Crown land!” or “Worship me, I am your GOD!”.  He is only revealing true facts about the wool pulled over our eyes and addresses the programming Canadians have had since confederation.  Everyone I have paid one of these bills with, accept them and it is no big deal.  I think it is an interesting method for helping Canadians wake up and stop stumbling around with their eyes wide shut.  If you get one of these legal tenders, let me know.  I think it is an interesting way to get a point across.

It is not illegal to write on bank notes in Canada. There are prohibitions, however, on reproducing a current Canadian bill electronically. The question of whether it is illegal or not to write or make markings on Canadian money came up after the death of famous actor Leonard Nimoy. His most famous role was that of Mr. Spock in Star Trek. Following his death, many fans around Canada began inking his features on Canadian five dollar bills which show a portrait of Sir Wilfred Laurier, Canada’s seventh prime minister.

Neither the Bank Act or the Criminal Code have dealt with the repercussions of mutilating or defacing Canadian bank notes. However, the Bank of Canada has expressed strong objections to mutilating or defacing bank notes because ultimately, writing on bank notes limits their life. The Bank of Canada is the only entity that decides when notes are to be removed from circulation and when notes have been mutilated or defaced, their lifetime comes to an end too quickly.

The Bank of Canada also strongly encourages citizens not to write on bank notes because they are a symbol of our country and a source of national pride. Furthermore, retailers may reject bank notes that have been written on.

Although there have been no laws passed on writing on Canadian bank notes, pursuant to the Currency Act, melting Canadian coins does have legal repercussions.

Section 11 of the Currency Act states:

11 (1) No person shall, except in accordance with a licence granted by the Minister, melt down, break up or use otherwise than as currency any coin that is current and legal tender in Canada.

(2) Every person who contravenes subsection (1) or any condition attached to a licence referred to in that subsection is liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding two hundred and fifty dollars or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding twelve months or to both, and, in addition to any fine or imprisonment imposed, the court may order that the articles by means of or in relation to which the offence was committed be forfeited to Her Majesty.

The repercussion of melting coins according to the Currency Act, is summarized as follows:

  • A fine of up to $250
  • A prison term of up to twelve months
  • A combination of a fine and imprisonment

Furthermore, pursuant to section 456 of the Criminal Code:

Everyone who

(a) defaces a current coin, or

(b) utters a current coin that has been defaced, is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction.

Even though both the Criminal Code and the Currency Act hold that destroying coins is an offence, neither state that mutilating or defacing paper currency is a criminal offence.

Being charged with a criminal offence has many potential consequences, it is in your best interests to hire an experienced lawyer to defend your legal rights. If you have been charged with a melting or breaking a coin that is currency in Canada, contact Kostman & Pyzer today.
