Is restricting private enterprise a good thing or a bad thing ? This is an old story – perhaps as old as mankind itself – or at least as far back in history as taxation and the creation of the NDP and CCF.
The old joke is that “I am from the government . I am here to help you.” Once government gets involved watch out. One can only look at the Winnipeg Health Authority – the W.HRA. as an example or the Workmen’s Compensation Board. Once government and government bureaucrats get involved – its mainly a self serving tax grab. Little more gets thought of – other than the lunch hours and pensions ( and budgets) of faceless bureaucrats and their department heads / supervisors.
The old joke comment may of been – “Why don’t civil servants look out of the window in the morning ?” – the answer being that if they did that they would have nothing to do in the afternoon.
The most amazing part is that these people (civil servants of Canada) , actually think that they are doing a wonderful job , which is essential to the safety and progress of mankind.
Tale for example health care in Manitoba Canada – while a patient waits 30 hours and dies at the emergency ward of the Health Sciences Center HSC in Winnipeg – at the inquest – it is deemed irrelevant by the CEO ( repeatedly) of the WHA. It is irrelevant if you look at the viewpoint of this Manitoba government organization. If health care in Manitoba had improved to any degree – then that would be fine. Ask any Winnipeg , Selkirk or Northern Manitoba rural resident and they will tell you that nothing has changed in the level of service of health care to Manitoba residents. Yet all that matters is the graphs and charts of the WHA all painting a wonderful picture , devoid of reality. More of the same when it comes to Manitoba and Manitobans tolerating this. Its like the great socialist society of Russia where the worker’s slogan was “They pretend to pay us , we pretend to work”. All the while waiting tens of years for a car to be ordered and delivered.
Taken from the Winnipeg Sun newspaper:
Would you buy a car from a dealer who tampers with a VIN plate or sells vehicles without properly inspecting them?
You probably wouldn’t if you knew who they were.
Under today’s privacy laws, however, you may already have bought a vehicle or service from a reprimanded dealer and not known it.
Because of the way the province’s privacy legislation is written, Manitoba Public Insurance is not allowed to identify companies or salespersons who break the Crown corporation’s rules and have their dealer licences or permits suspended, because it’s considered an unreasonable invasion of privacy.
That may change.
Yesterday, Justice Minister Dave Chomiak indicated the province plans to lift the veil protecting crooked dealers to help Manitobans find reputable sellers by separating a few rotten apples from the bunch.
“I asked both MPI and the Consumers Bureau to look at that and to consider changing the policy in the public interest,” he said. “In this case the public interest would trump, I think, the commercial and third party interests.”
The amendments would apply to major infractions, he said.
Terry Vestur, who owns Autowest on McPhillips Street, said he is in favour of full disclosure.
“We want to encourage people to deal with reputable dealers” said Vestur, whose pre-owned car dealership is one of the largest in Winnipeg. “MPI has done a terrific job in following up and cracking down on backyard guys and stuff like that.”
One dealer caught in MPI’s sting had permits suspended in 2007 for pre-signing and using inspection certificates to sell vehicles that were not inspected, and omitting information in sales agreements.
In another case, a dealer sold a rebuilt pickup truck with a tampered VIN (vehicle identification number).
Chomiak, who is also minister responsible for MPI, said it’s been the practice for 20 years not to release the names of car dealerships that have had their licences suspended.
Most infractions are minor and warrant verbal warnings, but serious ones may result in suspended licences or permits, or statute charges.
Most infractions go under the public radar but some become public record when they reach an independent licence suspension appeals board or the courts.
