BC Hydro: Contractors are paid THREE times more than Equivalent in-house employee positions


1) Did you know that BC Hydro hires independent contractors to do work that their own equivalent employees are capable of?

2) BC Hydro Contractors pay $10 per hour more to their employees than BC Hydro pays to their employees.

3) The Union representing BC Hydro employees is the same Union that represents the Contractors employees who have a better pay package.

4) BC Hydro employees are leaving in droves to work for Contractors and at the same time the remaining employees are working OVERTIME (700 hours limit) to meet the needs of BC Hydro Customers.

5) The word on the street is that BC Hydro is hiding the costs of these Contractors (overly generous pay scale) by not requiring Contractors to invoice a breakdown of billing; lump sum payments are the norm.

6) BC Hydro ratio of an apprentice to journeymen is 1:3  for safety and a broader knowledge base.

7) Contractor ratio of an apprentice electrician to journeyman is 1:1

8) Is the cost of doing business by BC Hydro intentionally inflated by not ensuring Value for Money contracts are being granted?

Source
9) Source of Source

10) BC Hydro's       Line Contractor Association   contributions to BC Liberal Party

11) Lower Mainland Line Contractors

12) Arctic Power Systems LTD  which is owned by Arctic Arrow Powerline Group Ltd which is owned by Altalink (Alberta) which is owned by Berkshire Hathaway Energy Company which is owned run by:


13) BC Hydro manpower was run by a Crown Corporation.     

14) BC Hydro has now been spun off to four other companies, all collecting a profit.

15) Why does BC Hydro have so many middlemen?

16) Don't ask why BC Hydro chooses these method, that question is best asked of Translink who admit that they do exactly the same thing.  However in a review of SCBCTA it is recommended that contracting out must be stopped.
Page 48 of 67
17) Review of South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority aka Translink

18) "Hiring freezes" is one culprit for Translink, is it the same case for BC Hydro?

19) Is there a chronic shortage of BC Hydro employees on multiple fronts just so the BC Liberal Government can present a Balanced Budget after driving the Corporation into $5 billion Deferral Accounts .... Debt which necessitates a need to raise the rates?

Looking for a direct quote from the Minister of Children and Family Development Stephanie Cadieux, don't hold your breath

We've always guessed that British Columbia Liberals New Releases were not from the lips of the elected Members of the Legislative Assembly while in their acting role as Ministers.

We guessed that they were written by the likes of a Brian Bonney.  We now know that what we guessed at, is true.     It's all about smoke and mirrors.

In Vaughn Palmer's column today he has a quote (inferred) from Cadieux, and he's the only one with the quote in the whole media.  Must be scoop, eh.   Or it could mean that no one else accepted the quote that he used as being true, why publish it then, leave it up to Vaughn.

As it turns out she, Stephanie Cadieux, did NOT say the Scoop-Poop line, that job was left to her staff, or ordered from the Premier's Office Communication Directors PAB GCPE ETC, highlighted in blue.

“In accordance with labour relations advice, the supervisory staff that were referenced in the judge’s ruling have been reassigned to an area of work that does not involve the same duties as those being reviewed,” Children and Family Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux announced Friday. “This is an interim measure, and it is not punitive or disciplinary, as that kind of action would only be contemplated if warranted following a full and fair human resources review.”  - Vaughn Palmer's

The only quotes that the PAB / GCPE did include in 'their' news release was
Minister of Children and Family Development Stephanie Cadieux
“The vulnerable children who come into contact with our ministry, or who come into our care deserve our best each and every day. The recent judgment made many significant and disturbing assertions about staff conduct. We owe it to children, the public and to staff to seek out the truth in the most balanced and unbiased way possible.”
And two others:    Bob Plecas and Gordon Phaneuf, CEO Child Welfare League of Canada
In partnership with the Child Welfare League of Canada (CWLC), the Ministry of Children and Family Development has asked Bob Plecas, a highly respected former deputy minister, to lead an independent review into matters arising from Judge Walker’s recent B.C. Supreme Court ruling.

The News Release also included abbreviated Terms of Reference for Mr. Plecas

Intent
This is a child-protection practice and policy review in the matter J.P. and an investigation into whether systemic problems exist that can be improved through recommendations.
The only newspaper that reported on the News Release by the PAB / GCPE / ETC. was the KelownaNow.


There is a silver lining in all of this, from Vaughn Palmer's column:
Supervisory staff have been reassigned to an area of work that does not involve the same duties as those being reviewed......

If you happen to be required to attend the Children and Family Development Department of the BC Liberal Government offices and see a supervisor who is not normally working in the office, don't make the assumption that they are there as a TEMP, or filling in for someone who is on MAT leave, or for someone on Vacation. 

For the safety of your Family, your children, and harshly taught not trust anyone who is evasive :

 Ask if they have been suspended from a different office.

Ask if they were responsible for the rapes of children. 


Ask.



Don't wait for the Courts to step in, again.

Hmmmm....   has the Elizabeth Fry Society group been involved ......

CWLC Members ... provincially, federally  etc.

Remote Renata High Speed Tower Internet Reception, Purrrrrrrfect

Desperate for a connection to the rest of the world, from a remote part of British Columbia, then the only need is the will, community involvement, plans, submission to authorities, a modest fee per year, all weather maintenance capability, and First Nation Approval.


Nelson, Castlegar, Trail, Christina Lake are not eligible, nor is Metro Vancouver or Kelowna


Green Line, abandoned rail line which now acts as a hiking biking trail


The proposed use of this tower is to expand High Speed Internet Service to the Renata rural residential homes and businesses. This mountain side site provides a great view to most of the Renata area which is home seasonally to approximately 50 people. We have already been operating out of this site for about 2 years now as a zero foot print test scenario and are now ready to apply for a 30 year Crown Land License of Occupation. There are no sub-tenures of this site and we do not anticipate there being any in the near future. Since this site is so far away from any communities, there are no zoning issues to contend with. For this rural valley of homes and businesses, this communication site is the only High Speed Internet service option available currently.

West Vancouver Swimming pools are not metered? Los Angeles does!

From an earlier Post: February 20, 2015 

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power DWP rebates for turfing turf



The real water guzzlers are swimming pools, volumes, empty too, are monitored by Google Earth for City Hall.  Empty is a plus for the homeowner's tax bills.   Swimming pools should be used as rain barrels.  If the chemicals don't kill swimmers, it shouldn't hurt plants, trees or the fish ponds.

Q: Does the LADWP provide a discounted water rate for filling my pool?

A:  No. Water usage will be billed according to your metered consumption.
 
You may be eligible for a Sewer Service Charge (SSC) adjustment if you filled your pool during the winter rainy season (typically from October through April). To request an adjustment, contact the City of Los Angeles Department of Public Works, Bureau of Sanitation at 1-800-540-0952 or fill out and submit a Residential SSC Request for Adjustment.

BBC: a Devil's Advocate: Are CPR's plans to re-start their Arbutus Right of Way (ROW) logistically, financially viable?

Seriously, CPR is taking their moth balled Arbutus Corridor and turning it into a modern day siding for rail cars in a residential area when they rightfully belong in an industrial area, like False Creek Flats.  Where do they think they are? Winnipeg?

CPR sees the Arbutus Corridor as the perfect resting place for big Box cars loaded with personal goods, flat cars loaded with lumber, tankers loaded with LNG, hoppers loaded with sulphur and the Engines stationed somewhere in with the mix, just to prove that their land is worth $100,000,000 instead of $20 Million.

CPR has proved one thing, with a few machines and one work crew, they can clear their Right Of Way (ROW) legally and get free publicity from the Press, just to make a point of who owns what.

If you haven't been to the area lately Google Earth Street View will help.

1/4 block east of Arbutus on Broadway looking to the south.
BC Hydro poles, along with Jim Pattison signage?

To be a functioning rail company there are requirements in place for the safety of nearby residents and the public in general, there are Risks and Liabilities.

CPR is well aware of their responsibilities to the public, it's just that they don't go out of their way to inform those who are inconvenienced the greatest.  For example East/West bound traffic at 25th aka King Edward. ..... a train cannot stand still on a public grade crossing for a period longer than 5 minutes when vehicular or pedestrian traffic requires passage.   Not clear if the same holds true if the train length stretches from Marpole to Granville Island and moving, shunting, all of the time and still blocking King Edward traffic.  Oh, and blocking every other grade crossing between Marpole and Granville Island.

CP in your com​munity brochure, Canada​​ 
 Blocked crossings
 Canadian Railway Operating Rules (CROR) establish that any movement of a train cannot stand still on a public grade crossing for a period longer than 5 minutes when vehicular or pedestrian traffic require passage. If a train is shunting (switching) over a public grade crossing, the crew must clear the crossing every 5 minutes to allow vehicle or pedestrian passage. When an emergency vehicle requires passage, employees must cooperate to quickly clear the involved public grade crossing.

 Taking the Canadian Railway Operating Rules a step further their engineers must, within a quarter of a mile, whistles must start tooting, toot-a-toot-a-tooting


Under CROR rules, train whistles at all public grade crossings must be sounded in a sequence of 2-long, 1-short, 1-long sounds. The train whistle sequence is initiated at least ¼ mile before each public grade crossing, and the last long whistle must be sounded until the public grade crossing is fully occupied by the train.

From Granville Island to 16th Avenue the distances between each grade crossing is less than a 1/4 of a mile; from 16th Avenue to 25th its a 1/2 mile; 25th to Nanton to 33rd to 37th  hmmmm Whistling to 41st to 45th to 49th  Whistling.... toot toot toot toot and at all hours, day or night.
 Then there's the CPR equipment that automatically blocks motor vehicles and pedestrians from crossing the ROW if there's a train barreling down the line with the Ding-a-Ding-a-Ding, flashing red lights, and the slicing down of the magic wands  .... that will somehow cover, at Broadways three six lanes of traffic.   CPR's answer???, a double wide system, curb and centre line, eh.

Has CPR contacted Vancouver City Engineers to discuss how intersection lights will interact with trains blocking the roads at the grade crossings?  Will the City have to put in left turn lanes two to three blocks long?  What about the right hand turn lanes, same distance?

Who's paying for all this infrastructure, just to make a point.
 

Next in line of things to do before CPR can declare that they are officially operational on the Arbutus Corridor is to put up chain link fencing with razor wire topping to prevent the public from ducking beneath stationary rail cars or climbing over at the couplers linking two units together.


If CPR is being honest with the public they should prove that they have the capability of running a train on time on budget to their shareholders or is it only about the money?

According to a brochure produced by CPR, they want the world to know that they are good neighbours and they are always thinking of those nearby properties, not the current owners mind you, its those individuals who may be interested in living beside an active rail line.
Locomotive whistles are significant safety appliances which save lives by serving as the last warning of an approaching train. In Canada, train whistle use is regulated under a strict set of federal regulations governed by the CROR. Transport Canada monitors railway operations to ensure train crews are in compliance with all rules and regulations.   Under CROR rules, train whistles at all public grade crossings must be sounded in a sequence of 2-long, 1-short, 1-long sounds. The train whistle sequence is initiated at least ¼ mile before each public grade crossing, and the last long whistle must be sounded until the public grade crossing is fully occupied by the train.
And continuing
These rules apply 24/7 and whistles must be sounded even if a crossing is equipped with flashing lights, bells and gates. In all cases when train crews observe persons or animals on or near CP tracks, whistles will be sounded in an attempt to warn of an approaching train.
And More

Rail operations

CP does our best to be a reasonable neighbour, but if you live near the railway you must expect to see and hear a certain amount of activity from our operations. Unlike a highway or busy road, the track is generally a very quiet place. When trains pass, you will hear the locomotives followed by the movement of freight cars and wheels making contact with the rails. When trains stop or start, you will hear the sound of brakes being applied or air under pressure passing through brake pipes on each car. You may also hear cars bumping together when slowing, or the slack being taken up when a train accelerates.

You will likely hear additional noises if you live near a rail yard, rail siding (a shorter, temporary line which runs parallel to our main lines) or terminal. In these areas, trains may stop for extended periods with their engines idling while our crews wait for another train to pass or to be given permission to pull out of the yard. Some terminals are served by trucks, trains and mobile equipment for moving and stacking containers, all of which operate around the clock and generate noise.

Proximity Issues    https://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/tcss/RSA_review/chapter7-394.htm

7.1 New Development Near Railway Property

During the 19th century, many communities in Canada sprang up around railways - their link to the rest of the country and the world. Over the next century, for demographic and economic reasons, these communities expanded and many railways moved their yards and operating facilities away from the highly populated town centres. In the late 20th century, increasing numbers of residential and commercial developments were built in close proximity to railway properties, both in the downtown cores and in outlying areas. This trend continues today. In some cases, as we witnessed only too vividly, development can result in a residential area on one side of the track and schools or recreational facilities on the other, in spite of the obvious safety concerns relating to crossings and trespassing.

Residents of the new developments complain not only about crossing safety and train speeds through their community, but also about blocked crossings, the noise, pollution and vibrations emanating from the trains and their yards, and the quantity of dangerous goods being carried on trains through densely populated areas. The Panel received many submissions regarding these issues, from residents in urban and rural municipalities alike.

Indians of British Columbia Smallpox, Census Volume 1 Impact of the white man / by William Duff 1964


Indians of British Columbia   Smallpox, Census



The Indian history of British Columbia, volume 1 :
the impact of the white man / by Wilson Duff. --

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Page 42 of 116

The most terrible single calamity to befall the Indians of British Columbia was the smallpox epidemic which started in Victoria in 1862.  Unique circumstances caused it to spread faster and farther than any previous outbreak could possibly have done, and within two years it had reached practically all parts of the Province, and killed about one-third of the native people.



Following upon the first gold excitement in 1858, it became the habit of many of the northern coastal tribes to visit Victoria in large numbers, and at times more than 2,000 "Hydahs,"  "Stickeens,"  'Chimseans, "  Bella Bellas,"  Fort Ruperts, "  and so on were camped on the outskirts of the settlement.  that was the situation in April, 1862, when a white man with smallpox arrived from San Francisco.  Before long, despite dire warnings in the Colonist, the disease reached the camps of the Indians, and they began to die in fearful numbers.   Alarmed, the authorities burned the camps and forced the Indians to leave.  They started up the coast for home, taking the disease with them, leaving the infection at every place they touched.   The epidemic spread like a forest fire up the coast and into the interior; the details of its progress can be followed in dispatches sent to the Colonist from Nanaimo, Fort Rupert, Bella Coola, Port Simpson, Stickeen, Lillooet, Williams Lake.  At Cape Mudge the Euclataws ambushed a party of Haidas heading home, and caught the disease as part of their spoils.  In the Chilcotin a white man took blankets from the bodies of the dead and sold them to other Indians, who were infected in their turn.   At Port Simpson, by good chance, William Duncan had moved with his Christian converts to establish a new village at Metlakatla, just in time to avoid the arrival of the disease.  On Bonilla Island a party of southern Haidas perished while they waited for good weather to cross Hecate Strait.  In a few places doctors or priests vaccinated the Indians and check the disease, but in most areas, as the Colonist put it, it raged unchecked until it exhausted itself for want of material to work on.  When the epidemic started, there were about 60,000 Indians in British Columbia.  When it had burned itself our two or three years later, there were about 40,000.



Smallpox was not the only disease that cut deeply into the Indian population.  Epidemics of measles, influenza, tuberculosis, and others also took their heavy tolls.  Venereal disease, a result of prevalent prostitution, killed many and rendered infertile many more.  Alcohol, introduced early as an item of trade, diluted and adulterated in various ways, was also the direct or indirect cause of many deaths.

Few Indians here, in comparison with other parts of the continent, were killed in battles with the white men.  Along the coast there were a few small but spectacular massacres of the crews of trading ships, or of Indians attempting to capture them, and several bombardments of villages by naval vessels.  In the interior there were very few attacks on trading posts, and one or two armed clashes, much too small to be called Indian Wars.*  (Accounts of nearly all of the Indians-white clashes may be found in B. A. McKelvie's little book "Tales of Conflict")

The Indians' own intertribal wars were quite another matter;  the introduction of firearms made these much more lethal affairs, and the mortality rates, especially along the coast, came to be terribly high.  It is difficult to gain an appreciation of the destructiveness of this warfare without going over, one by one, the traditional histories of each of the tribes.  Murders, massacres to avenge them, and more massacres in retaliation form a constantly recurring pattern.  Many small tribes were, in effect, exterminated.  Some of the more powerful tribes, embarked on contest of mutual annihilation.  The wars continued without abatement into the 1860's.  In the early journals we find frequent comments about the constant fighting among the Indians, but these somehow fail to convey the extent of the slaughter which was occurring just beyond the gaze of the men in the trading posts.

Level Playing Field: BC Provincial elections: Status a nobody vs a nobody; PREMIER vs a nobody hmmmm

In the last election, probably in many past elections, the governing party asks for the writ to be dropped to call an election.  It's up to the .... BC Liberals of when the best time is for the dissolution of the Legislature and with it the status of the Members.

There has to be some form of continuance of a government, it's not turned over to a caretaker such as the Deputy Ministers ..... the Ministers remain in place until a new government is formed... however when it comes to the election, there is suppose to be a level playing field.  No Titles are permitted.

The Writ changes the status of all MLAs eg. for Vancouver Point Grey riding, she is must be introduced as a mere Candidate vs other Candidates.  No mention of her Title, such as Premier, may adorn any advertising, or publicized and reported on by the Main Stream Media, or you, or we.

Political parties introducing their Candidate, which just happens to be the Premier, cannot use the word Premier, but they have, and still did during the 2013 Provincial Election.

A basic underlying principle of democratic elections is that there must be a ‘level playing field’ for all candidates. An incumbent should not have an advantage over other candidates because of access to public funds or because of the status associated with being a Member of the Legislative Assembly. In keeping with this principle, when the Legislature is dissolved Members cease to be Members.
