James Moore Speaks For The Dead In Lac Megantic Quebec







Written by Grant G

There he is, a dirty rotten foul-mouthed bastard, his name is James Moore...He is part of Stephen Harper`s cabinet, ...Today James Moore said probably the most disgusting piece of slimy verbiage ever uttered by a Harper Conservative, now that`s saying something.

James Moore has channeled the near 50 dead residents of Lac Megantic Quebec and puts words in their mouth..

For those who forgot, or never heard, although I find it hard to believe anyone could forget that fateful day when an unmanned train ran downhill into Lac Magentic Quebec, blew up, exploded and vaporized the entire town..50 dead people incinerated, no chance to escape, generations vaporized in a flash..

James Moore today stated and I quote...

"The people of Lac Megantic wished they had pipelines instead of rail"

James Moore, January 1/2015....

http://www.vancouversun.com/news/Public+safety+heart+need+pipelines+says+Metro+Vancouver+Tory/10695178/story.html

You can read it yourself in the above link to the Vancouver Sun
 

Excuse my language folks....My effing god, how could anyone say such a cruel distasteful thing like that, speaking for dead people, using 50 dead Lac Megantic victims to promote pipelines in British Columbia....That`s almost a veiled threat, James Moore is literally saying ..give us Tar/bitumen pipelines or risk being blown up, vaporized, .......Unbelievable callousness, willful fear mongering, using death as a calling card.

No James Moore, the people of Lac Megantic Quebec do not wish they had pipelines instead of rail, the people of Canada, of Quebec, of Alberta(who spilled near one billions litres of oil from pipelines in one month)..The people in Canada from coast to coast wish that we had rigid railway rules and safety regulations in place..

http://powellriverpersuader.blogspot.ca/2014/11/625000-litres-of-toxic-crud-spilled-in.html

Stephen Harper and the Conservative party of Canada gutted railway regulations...Stephen Harper and James Moore followed and listened to requests from railway lobbyists and allowed industrial trains to be manned by one person, by sleep deprived person,...MM&A Railway lobbied for and received permission to reduce train staff to one person...The Lac Megantic preventable crime, the vaporizing of an entire town was caused by James Moore and Stephen Harper caving into the oil and railway industry...

And more, much much more...Stephen Harper and James Moore refuse to force railway companies to remove DOT-111 cars from the tracks, these rail containers were never meant to carry explosive oil products, they were built to carry canola oil...

Cherry Point refinery in Washington State has banned DOT-111 cars because they are an accident waiting to happen....Stephen Harper and James Moore refuse to do the same in Canada, thus putting Canadians at risk across Canada every single day..

  http://powellriverpersuader.blogspot.ca/2013/07/canadas-cold-blank-stare.html

James Moore, if you were in front of me and said that I would be tempted to punch you in the mouth...You speak for the dead...What about the 14 pipeline breaks in Alberta in the month of October/2014 ....What about the Kalamazoo river, a river and ecosystem destroyed from a Enbridge pipeline that busted open...You dirty rotten bastard James Moore..

Your boss Stephen Harper gutted railway safety and directly caused Lac Magentic to be vaporized..

You son of a bitch James Moore, I hope a stroke strikes you right in the space your heart once occupied.

Maybe the below actions and non-actions of Transport Canada will jog your memory(Federal Government is responsible for Transport Canada)

Ten areas of regulatory failure that contributed, directly or indirectly, to the Lac-Mégantic disaster




From Bruce Campbell


"My report, Willful Blindness?, released today, summarizes the regulatory failures behind the Lac-Mégantic tragedy. The federal government has so far not acknowledged any culpability or responsibility for the accident. On the contrary, the Minister has blamed the accident on the negligence of individuals and not on gaps in the regulatory regime.

In reality, there were multiple regulatory failures. It is one thing if there was just one or two, but the many failures contributing to the accident begs the question: was this a case of willful blindness?

1 . Transport Canada gave MMA permission to operate its massive unit oil trains with a single-person crew over the strenuous objections of its Montréal office, the union representing the workers, and a variety of experts; and without proper consultation with the communities through which the train passed.


2. MMA had a long history of safety violations involving inspections, braking systems, defective equipment, etc. Transport Canada warned the company repeatedly, yet imposed no penalties on the company. Either it didn’t have the proper enforcement tools, or it did not have the will to do so…or a combination of both.


3. The appallingly poor condition of the MMA track has been widely documented. And yet it was not designated as “excepted track” which would require strict 10 miles per hour speed limits and prohibitions on transporting dangerous goods.


4. MMA’s safety management system, which all railways are required to have in place, was not approved until 2010—seven years after it had been submitted to Transport Canada. Some employees did not even know it existed. This represents a spectacular failure of oversight and enforcement required for the proper functioning of this type of regulatory regime.


5. MMA was required to provide a risk assessment to Transport Canada with regard to its proposal to move to one-person crews—demonstrating mitigating actions it would take to offset any increased risk to public safety. Transport Canada won’t make its risk assessment public, claiming it is private company information. Presumably it approved MMA’s risk assessment. It is likely that this assessment was defective.


6. MMA was also supposed to provide a risk assessment of any major changes in its cargo—in this case a major increase in the transportation of crude oil, a dangerous good—which began in earnest in November 2012. It is questionable whether MMA did such a risk assessment, or whether Transport Canada approved it.


7. The cozy relationship between the regulator, Transport Canada, and the regulated companies, is reflected in the influence of the rail lobby, the Railway Association of Canada (RAC). MMA appealed to the RAC when it encountered resistance to its request for permission to operate single crew trains—from Transport Canada’s own Montreal office staff and from the MMA union, the United Steelworkers. RAC approached Ottawa headquarters on behalf of MMA. Who at Transport Canada made the decision, on what grounds, and who was party to the decision—has not been revealed. However, the company got its permission (formally or informally) to operate single-person crews in May 2012.

8. Contrary to Transport Canada’s claim that the Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) division’s inspection/oversight system was functioning well, there is considerable evidence that its resources were woefully inadequate to cope with the massive increase in oil-by-rail traffic. The number of inspectors has remained the same since 2004. Its budget had been frozen since 2010. The ratio of TDG inspectors to oil carloads increased from 1:14 to 1:4500 from 2009 to 2013. According to internal documents, Transport Canada was not concerned about the public safety implications of the increase in oil traffic or the nature of the tank cars in which it was being transported.


9. The contents of the MMA train were listed on its manifest as being of low volatility when they were in fact of a higher volatility—akin to gasoline—evidence of lax testing practices. Despite indications prior to the accident that oil from the Bakken region of North Dakota was highly volatile, Transport Canada claimed ignorance of this fact. Moreover, it did not classify crude oil as a dangerous good requiring additional care, or that unit oil trains with up to 100 tank cars required special precautions.


10. Despite multiple warnings from both countries’ transportation safety boards, Transport Canada along with the US regulator resisted efforts to implement a speedy phase-out of the old single-shell DOT-111 tank cars. The US National Transportation Safety Board had recommended that no higher volatility oil be carried in these old cars. All tank cars on the Lac-Megantic train were of this model.


Lac-Mégantic is the most devastating Canadian rail disaster in a century.

 Did any of that ring a bell James Moore?

 MMA Railway claimed bankruptcy, they paid nothing to the victims  in Lac Megantic, in fact MMA have emerged from bankruptcy and again want to run trains with one person aboard through Quebec and other towns...

You James Moore and Stephen Harper are culpable for that crime in Lac Megantic Quebec..You and your government relaxed the regulations, it`s on you JAMES MOORE..

You are a sick twisted bastard James Moore...Do you recall saying this about starving children earlier this year?..

James Moore sorry for remarks about hungry children


"I know the cause of fighting poverty is not helped by comments like those I made last week. For that, I am sorry." 
 
Moore had told the radio reporter that it isn't up to the federal government to help children who don't have enough to eat.

He said British Columbia's child poverty rates aren't the responsibility of the federal government, and it won't "usurp" the province.

"Is it the government's job — my job to feed my neighbour's child? I don't think so," Moore said.
"Obviously nobody wants kids to go to school hungry … but is that always the government's job? To be there to serve people their breakfast?"

______________

Oh indeed James Moore, your party is going down big-time, your mouth, Fantino, Del Maestro, Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin, Bruce Carson, Michael Sona, this list is long, hundreds of other criminals hiding from justice, convicted felons once employed by Stephen Harper..

James Moore, once your comments and words spread through Quebec you can write off your chances for even one Quebec seat...This was no slip of the tongue, you are trying to turn a crime scene into an excuse to ram pipelines through British Columbia...You are talking for the dead, victims of a crime the Conservative Party of Canada facilitated in, abetted, assisted, your relaxing of railway regulations and staffing levels directly led to this mass murder crime scene...Your insensitive remarks..

You will regret those words James Moore...You can`t apologize for being an evil non-caring Harper Con.. Canada`s worst ever railway crime, the largest mass murder scene in Canada and you try to blame it on a lack of pipelines...LAC MEGANTIC WAS NEVER ASKED TO ALLOW CONSTRUCTION OF A PIPELINE, THEY NEVER REJECTED A PIPELINE, YOU JAMES MOORE ARE CLAIMING IN NOT SO MANY WORDS THAT THE PEOPLE OF LAC MEGANTIC QUEBEC REJECTED A PIPELINE IN FAVOUR OF A RAIL LINE, YOU ARE MAKING IT UP ON THE FLY JAMES MOORE...YOU ARE A CALLOUS SON OF A BITCH..

 Every accident, every explosion from fertilizer plants, fireworks plant, every plane accident, every industrial accident, any major accident that wipes out a entire town, to say those people wish the bomb and fuse was never allowed in their town in the first place, that`s the lowest form of politics.

My advice James Moore....Keep out of Quebec.. Keep out of British Columbia..In fact I suggest you leave Canada altogether...Why don`t you go to North Korea, or to the middle of an Iraqi desert and shake hands with ISIS..

The people of Canada wish they never gave Stephen Harper`s Conservative Party of Canada a majority.

As reported here last year...All Canadians can expect from Stephen Harper in way of a response to the Lac Megantic Quebec mass murder and vaporization is...

A Cold Blank Stare!

Remember our veterans and how they are treated? This is what the HarperCons believe our veterans do? Fake it? Really. Well just maybe they need to lose a leg or two, or experience ptsd -pictures of blown up or shot up people/children over and over and then to those who have and do lay their lives on the line for our country this is what they say? This is what they believe our veterans are doing? Absolutely appalling. Remember this.

Unfortunately our elected officials don't' seem to care as attitudes are rampant amongst them all be it the rail explosion or vets returning from duty.
Appalling.

Harper deregulated safety standards, environmental safety standards. Permits the resource robber barons to operate, with acute shortages of labor. Brings over foreigners that are not even ticketed nor certified. Canadians have left their jobs as, foreigners are very dangerous to work with.

Harper, ditzy Christy and Imperial Metals wear the catastrophic dam burst at Mount Polley mine. Harper permitting a one man train operator is insane.

Harper is the worst entity Canadians have ever had to cope with, since Hitler and WW2.

This is what happens when the private corporation that handles all claims & litigation on behalf of most private insurance companies in North America is awarded major contracts with Veterans Affairs...

“CGI counts among its clients 20 of the top 25 insurance carriers in the United States and 17 of the top 25 carriers in Canada”...

http://www.cgi.com/en/cgi-renews-outsourcing-contracts-leading-canadian-insurers-valued-over-cdn40-million

http://www.cgi.com/en/insurance/loss-adjusting-claims-management

Tip of the iceberg of CGI's contracts with Veterans Affairs worth MILLIONS...

http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/about-us/proactive-disclosure/contracts-over-10k/details/vac/33/3554

http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/about-us/proactive-disclosure/contracts-over-10k/details/amendments/42/3554

What makes this situation significantly more disgusting is the fact that CGI, the private corporation denying our vets the benefits they are entitled to through their contracts with Veterans Affairs, is the same private corporation that has made BILLIONS off of the very military actions that caused the very injuries in question, and that could not have happened without our vets...

Example of just one of the BILLIONS in contracts Harper & his cons, who are partners with CGI, have awarded CGI with the department of National Defence and Canadian Armed Forces, this one alone is worth over $9 million...

https://buyandsell.gc.ca/procurement-data/contract-history/W8484-127587-001-SV-1

And CGI have BILLIONS in contracts with the U.S. military as well, here's just one worth over $89 million...

"CGI awarded US$89.4 million contract to deliver system and software engineering to the U.S. Army"...

http://www.cgi.com/en/CGI-contract-system-software-engineering-US-Army-Communications-Electronics-Command

...Maybe if our government wasn't paying CGI BILLIONS, including to manage the claims filed by our veterans, they would have more money to pay our veterans the benefits they are entitled to.

Okay, it's pretty clear. You can mark this guy down as a guy that did the deal. Obviously he been bought or blackmailed and now shills shamelessly on behalf of big pipeline companies.

He's stuck in that exclusive narrative of his material concerns, the ones pitting big rail (of which we know some about here in B.C.) against big pipelines (which we also know some about).

I'm afraid moore--saying what he said in that quote--is revealing himself of an existential exam@le of what it means to merge big business with big government. The view becomes singular and has no empathy. Sides are taken and morality is suspended in favour of of whoever's paying big. Because it's the big dollars that bring the media on-board, and that's where the sweet spot is for the politically inclined.

This should ring a few bells for those of you who read Mr.Matthews.

Appreciate the effort to look right at it and face the truth of moore. Normally i wouldn't have cared to look, but it was the right thing to do. The truth must be met if it's to be defeated.

These el norte neo-cons have got to go.

Cheers.

Thanks Jon Ghun, Tina and others..

James Moore and his Conservative party calling cards, aces of spades, the death cards.

Funny what stories resonate, I spend hours researching, writing and putting together many articles..

This post on James Moore wrote itself..

And it`s literally gone viral, this article roared across Canada, coast to coast, Twitter..Facebook..And Newspaper comment boards..

The people are very upset with James Moore, some comments can`t be undone..What James Moore said fell into the bile category..

His soon to be retraction won`t help undo the damage.
