Mayor Don Iveson will never "Drain the Swamp" because he enjoys being the head alligator too much.

   When I seen the Police Chief on television actually promoting their continued practice of carding, alarm bells started going off in my head. This is what I have been writing about the "Corruption Culture" that is so solidly embedded in the Edmonton Police Service and much worse at Edmonton City Hall, this is all because the Mayor of Edmonton Don Iveson is such a phony social advocate for change.

 There is no change coming ever with "The Tefon Don" Iveson and his crew of "Crony Capitalists", Don Iveson is a solid promoter of keeping the Old Dinosaur's and their Uber-corrupt practices solidly in place for another decade as the Mayor of the Capitol of Alberta.
 This City Council of misanthropic misfits actually EXTENDED the contract for a Police Chief that promoted a obvious racist cop who abused a child with a taser, what kind of Mayor is this? A liar to begin with, who is promoting a false image of himself.
Iveson is promoting himself as the Mayor of OPENNESS, for who? Katz?
 Like is this guy for real, he is actually trying to pass himself off as some kind of Open Democracy champion, what joke and a total lie. Have you heard, Mayor Iveson is gonna "Build A WALL" to keep the hoards of voters OUT, and before you reach the wall you are going to have to pass security checks and metal detectors, because the misanthrope City Councillors fear an uprising from the people.

The City of Edmonton is the only MAJOR city in Canada that I know of that regularly hold SECRET MEETINGS! Mr. Burns was the mayor who started the secret Edmonton corruption meetings, and Smithers his protégé (Iveson) is continuing his gleeful journey down CORRUPTION LANE

The majority of provinces in Canada have specific legislation making it ILLEGAL for Municipal Councils to hold secret meetings. It is one of the Cornerstones of our Democracy, it is called Openness.

 Not the phony baloney Openness that The Teflon Don is promoting on his web-page. Don Iveson and his crony council are an abomination of the very Principles of Democracy. God the people who gave these spending addicts an Award for Openness must be a pile of maroons.

 "If the majority deny rights to and destroy their opposition, then they also destroy democracy." That is what the Crony Capitalist Council of Iveson and his cronies have produced when they denied Injured Workers the Right of Assembly to honor our fallen.
 We as citizens of Edmonton cannot make fun of Donald Trump if we accept the behavior and terrible level of performance that this group of Councillors and the Mayor have delivered to this city, then you are nothing more than a hypocrite.

 There can be NO resolution of the serious crimes that have been committed against Seriously Injured Workers until the Old Dinosaur Police Chief Rod Knecht steps down and lets the next generation of Policemen or women take the reigns of Policing in this City. Police Chief Knecht simply carries TOO MUCH Old baggage with him. Dinosaurs cannot and will not change, they are too old and too set in their ways, you have to do a complete REMOVE and REPLACE (R+R), it is the 21st Century Way.

 Until a PURGE of Corruption happens here in the Capitol of Alberta, there can be no resolution of Injured Workers grievances because the same Old Dino's are still in charge and refuse to hold the guilty parties to account for their crimes. Why does the Police Chief refuse to investigate or charge these criminals? Because these are his friends.
 You have to remember that Rod Knecht was pushed out of the RCMP, because he refused to change and all those years he spent running K-Division fused these practices of corruption into his psyche, he cannot change now he has spent his entire adult life promoting the stripping of citizens rights.
 He has to go, and he can take the Mayor and his cronies with him because these are the architects of corruption, THEY BUILT the SWAMP, and they will be damned if they will allow a bunch of simple citizens that lack the Financial Might of the Iveson cronies,  to DRAIN the SWAMP that Mr. Burns and Smithers have put so much time and effort in to constructing. 
 The Old Government Bureaucrats that carried out these abuses against innocent injured civilians are ALL STILL EMBEDDED and they still are all still employed by the AB Govt. Until there is a wholesale PURGE of these Old Dinosaurs left over from the PC Dynasty, nothing will change at the WCB of Alberta and nothing will change for injured workers killed or maimed on the job in Alberta.

 These are the thoughts that immediately came to mind when I seen the Police Chief of Edmonton actively promoting violating the Charter of Rights on Television, he was very matter of fact about it.
 Meanwhile BACK in the SWAMP, Mayor Iveson is completely at ease with this news. Mayor Iveson and his whole PHONY Indigenous Reconciliation ACT is nothing more than a giant bag of wind.
 And that is why I have given the name of SMITHERS Waylon Smithers 1.pngto our Mayor, because his policies are Lock/Step in compliance with the same old policies of corruption left over from the Mandel City Council. In fact I cannot tell ANY Difference in the policy actions of Mayor Iveson and his previous gang of cronies that promote "Crony Capitalism."
 Don Iveson and his crew are very happy living In the SWAMP, to them Crony Capitalism is fun, and VERY profitable to their cronies. There is no city of 1 Million in N. America, that spends and wastes money like it is growing on trees the way Edmonton City Council spends and wastes tax dollars.

Crony capitalism is a term describing an economy in which success in business depends on close relationships between business people and government officials. It may be exhibited by favoritism in the distribution of legal permits, government grants, special tax breaks, or other forms of state interventionism.

 The City of Edmonton and the SWAMP Dwellers have conspired in my opinion to strip Albertans of their inherent right to assembly, and to deny them the right to Protest. They did this when the Mandel City Council quietly removed the Memorial for Dead and Injured Workers from City Hall.
 On that day, the Mandel crew of Iveson and his cronies decided it was much easier to STRIP Edmontonians of their Charter Rights, and their ability to assemble at a central location in the town square that is named after the greatest champion of Democracy that ever lived in the last century, Sir Winston Churchill; rather than offer real help to these people like ACCESS to City Hall.
 The "Enemies of Democracy" from the old Stephen Mandel gang of misanthropes do not believe that citizens within a Free and Democratic Society should have the right to protest at their City Hall in the center of the city. This has earned them the moniker of "The enemies of Democracy", that they fully deserve. To Iveson and his crew of cronies, this is THEIR City Hall. So, they are Building a WALL to keep YOU the taxpayers OUT.

 This is WHY I felt compelled to comment when the officer was shot, and our phony social champion Mayor Don Iveson was on air crying and balling about a Police Officer who died on the job.
 OVER 100 people lose their lives every YEAR in Alberta at work, and they are NOT cops, they are NOT Policemen or government employees, but they are proud Canadians that deserve to remembered and honored at an open and accessible venue in the heart of our City. That is not the case right now because Iveson and his gang of misanthropic Crony Capitalists decided it was their RIGHT to deny me and my seriously injured worker associates our Charter Rights to assembly for remembering common people who have died in the line of work.
 Those workers who died, each and every man woman and teen who has died or become severely disabled deserve our remembrance, because EACH and every one of those workers had a family, a brother, a sister and a loving mother and father that miss them dearly each day. I cannot bear that these misanthropes that call themselves our Civic Fathers have so beguiled their duties to the citizens of this city, because my father worked for the City of Edmonton for over 30 years and he is rolling in his grave as we speak.
 On Civic Election Day please vote with those who have gone before us and have given their lives for this province we live in and have paid the Ultimate Price for their country, and throw these misanthropic Crony Capitalistic henchmen out of office for the good of our community. The future of your city depends on it, your children will thank you one day. Otherwise they will simply continue to STRIP your rights as a citizen from you until one day you wake up and you will find you don't have any rights left to fight for just like happened to Martin Niemöller:

Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
