SUBJECT: Crouse Developments Inc.

* @dana: You wrote yesterday:
"Fraud is going to be e difficult to prove. There is miles difference between incompetence and deliberate fraud."
In a friendly way, I ask you (and everyone else) to note you're in the CROUSE DEVELOPMENTS INC thread. IE: discussing the relationship of Crouse/CD/CRB.
Have you ever entertained the thought that a fraud charge can come out of that? Has ANYBODY?
The most serious outcomes of an inquiry into that relationship ... that I can see happening, are:
-calling a mayoral re-election,
-restoration of voters' confidence in our elected.

Indeed there is, slip up once or twice and it is incompetence. Do it over a dozen times in well over a year and it becomes fraud real quick. Pretty simple to deduce the difference for any clear thinking individual and even easier for an investigating RCMP officer, don''t you think?

* Geddy: and what are the unknowns ???? surely you are not suggesting that simply because Lagore wrote a letter suggesting that some former employee suggested to Crouse that he should use a corporate entity for the receipt of his chair remuneration .... that that somehow removes Crouse's personal responsibility to (a) be transparent and (b) not double dip.
As I have said before ... the argument that "I was just obeying orders" did not exculpate the guards at the Nazi extermination camps .... and the argument that "they told me to use a private corp" does not eliminate Crouse's personal responsibility. The fact that he used a private corp. which aided and abbetted his non-transparency is his responsibility and he is the one who is to be held responsible. The fact that he was not transparent in relation to his CRB income has been established and not rebutted ... the fact that he double dipped has been established and not rebutted. So the only question seems to be .. do you go to K division or to the local station.

* Fraud is going to be extremely difficult to prove. There is miles difference between incompetence and deliberate fraud.

It’s Flu Season Folks, Take Care

Mail Attachment
To avoid the flu . . .

Eat right! Make sure you get your daily dose of fruit and veggies.

Take your vitamins and bump up your vitamin C.

Get plenty of exercise because it builds your immune system.

Walk for at least an hour a day, go for a swim, take the stairs instead of the elevator, etc.

Wash your hands often. If you can't, keep a bottle of antibacterial stuff around.

Get lots of fresh air. Open doors and windows whenever possible.

Try to eliminate as much stress from your life as you can.

Get plenty of rest.

OR . . . take the doctor's approach. Think about it. When you go for a flu jab, what do they do first? They clean your arm with alcohol. Why? Because Alcohol KILLS GERMS.

SO . . .

I walk to the pub. (exercise)

I put lime in my vodka. (fruit)

Celery in my Bloody Mary. (veggies)

Drink outdoors on the patio. (fresh air)

Tell jokes and laugh. (eliminate stress)

Then I pass out. (rest)

The way I see it, if you keep your alcohol levels up,
flu germs can't get you!

REMEMBER: 'A shot in the glass is better than one in the ass!'

Why Has Freezer Become Food Graveyard For Cooks?

Has The Freezer
Young shoppers do not like eating food that is stored in the freezer, a survey has found.

Those younger than 34 were twice as likely to say they did not like eating food from the freezer as those over 35, according to the survey.

Freezer cookbooks were once a must-have kitchen item, but for younger cooks the freezer is a "graveyard" where bad and forgotten meals sit and frost over. Meat that is about to go off, unwanted food from relatives and emergency last resort meals are its only stock.
