L’an dernier, 253 personnes sont mortes sur les routes de la province patrouillées par la Sûreté du Québec, soit 15 de moins qu’en 2017, peut-on lire dans le plus récent bilan routier présenté par la SQ pour 2018.

De ces 253 victimes de la route, 235 ont perdu la vie lors de collisions routières, soit 3,4 % de moins qu’en 2017 où 243 décès avaient été dénombrés à la suite de collisions mortelles.

Habituellement surreprésentés dans les statistiques routières, les jeunes conducteurs québécois affichent cette année un bilan routier nettement plus positif dans le bilan de la SQ avec une baisse de 32 % des décès survenus lors de collisions mortelles.

Ainsi, en 2017, 57 personnes âgées de 16 à 24 ans avaient péri sur le territoire de la SQ contre 39 en 2018.

« C’est une bonne nouvelle pour nous. Cette catégorie d’usagers était fortement représentée l’année passée », a souligné le lieutenant Christian Paquin de la Sûreté du Québec sur les ondes d’ICI RDI.

Peut-être que l’ensemble des modifications qui ont été apportées au Code de la sécurité routière visant les jeunes a eu une influence, c’est très positif.

La vitesse toujours en tête des causes d’accidents mortels

Parmi les principales causes d’accidents mortels, la vitesse excessive est une fois de plus arrivée en tête de classement en 2018, révèlent les statistiques de la SQ qui font état de 72 accidents mortels liés à ce comportement en 2018.

Ici aussi, le bilan s’est amélioré par rapport à 2017, où la vitesse excessive avait fait 76 victimes sur les routes de la province.

La deuxième principale cause d’accidents mortels compilés par la SQ en 2018 était la distraction, notamment en raison de l’utilisation du téléphone cellulaire au volant, qui a été à l’origine de 25 collisions mortelles en 2018.

Pour une deuxième année de suite, la distraction au volant a tué plus de gens sur les routes du Québec que la conduite avec capacités affaiblies, souligne le lieutenant Christian Paquin, et ce, en dépit de la remise de 9000 contraventions pour utilisation d’un téléphone cellulaire au volant.

Drogue et alcool au volant

La troisième cause d’accidents mortels l’an dernier était la conduite en état d’ébriété ou sous l’influence de drogues. Selon les données compilées par la SQ, le nombre d’accidents mortels dus à l’alcool et aux drogues a par ailleurs baissé de 8 % en 2018. Ce qui est somme toute une bonne nouvelle.

Les conducteurs québécois ont cependant été moins assidus en ce qui a trait au port de la ceinture de sécurité l’an dernier, si on en croit les statistiques de la SQ qui révèlent que 45 victimes de la route en 2018 ne la portaient pas, alors que le chiffre était de 23 en 2017.

La SQ rappelle que le port de la ceinture, s’il n’empêche pas les accidents de se produire, réduit grandement la gravité des blessures lors d’une collision.

La majorité des accidents se produisent le jour

Depuis le 18 mai dernier, les apprentis conducteurs sont soumis à un couvre-feu obligatoire qui leur interdit de conduire entre minuit et cinq heures du matin afin de réduire les risques d’accident.

Or, selon les données compilées par la Sûreté du Québec, la majorité des accidents mortels se sont produits le jour l’an dernier. « Contrairement aux croyances populaires, la grande majorité des collisions mortelles en 2018 sont survenues le jour. Près des deux tiers des collisions mortelles surviennent entre 8 h et 20 h », peut-on lire dans le communiqué publié jeudi par la SQ.

Ce qui illustre, selon la SQ, l’importance de demeurer vigilant en tout temps au volant.

John Summers: Bell Baker Lawyer Ridicules Motherhood and Society

Editor

Action has always been known to speak louder than words. The actions of John Summers, an Ottawa based lawyer has left a lot of well-meaning citizens dumbfounded and shocked. This is a lawyer who claims to really value human decency and family values with his words but does the complete apparent opposite with his actions.

Fabricating lies about another person in the court of law is an offence that law practitioners tend to frown upon. However, John Summers did not only fabricate lies to keep Raymond from seeing his mother, Dezrin Carby-Samuels but also went ahead to blatantly pursue a negative agenda against an elderly woman. Dezrin is a woman who has had her fair share of abuse from both her husband, Horace and daughter, Marcella. She and her son Raymond saw the law courts as their last resort in their quest for justice to prevail. However, the complete opposite is what they obtained thanks to John Summers’ apparent campaign of manipulation of court procedure and deception

The era where lawyers were deemed as honest and truthful is long gone as is being shown being John Summers. For a lawyer to be able to produce a non-truthful and deceitful affidavit claiming that Raymond  suffers from “mental illness” when that is not the case shows the lengths that lawyers of John Summers’ calibre are willing to go in order to try twist court procedure to their advantage at the possible expense of human life or the perpetuation of human suffering.

John Summers also claimed that his client, Horace Carby-Samuels was ignorant of the procedures adopted by courts which is the reason why his client could not file any defence. However, Horace Carby-Samuels happens to be the same person who had enough belief in his legal capabilities that he decided to do away with the services of his lawyer in order to represent himself during a legal battle against both the Government of Canada and his union during the 1990’s.

There are certain values and ethics that keep society together and differentiate humans from other living things in the world and respect for the elderly happens to be among such things. However, if for the love of money a lawyer who has sworn to always ensure that justice prevails is able to trample on the fundamental human rights of a sick mother and her son, then something definitely is wrong somewhere. The basic things like empathy and love for humanity that makes us human are now being thrown away just for the love of money.

Where did humanity really go wrong? How can the life of an elderly woman be exchanged for a few bucks? Since when did humans become so cruel to one another? These are questions that beg to be answered but can’t and the behavioural patterns of people like John Summers also makes it even more difficult to understand. If a lawyer can lie under oath against an elderly woman just to please his client, then the world is really about to come to an end.

With Dezrin being unable to walk, speak or even write, the fraudulent activities being perpetuated by John Summers will only help in negatively impact her health. The behaviour of John Summers is bad for society and humanity and should be condemned in no uncertain terms.  

One report from a reliable source alleges that Dezrin died four months ago as a result of evil actions of John Summers.

Mr. Summers had no business practicing law anywhere in Canada for the torture he has put this elderly black woman since 2016.

John Summers can be regarded as little more than a handsome demon.

Record one million job losses in March: StatCan

Editor

OTTAWA — More than one million Canadians lost their jobs in the month of March, Statistics Canada is reporting. The unemployment rate has also climbed to 7.8 per cent, up from 2.2 percentage points since February.

Canada’s national statistics agency released its monthly Labour Force Survey on Thursday, using March 15 to 21 as the sample week – a time when the government began enforcing strict guidelines around social gatherings and called on non-essential businesses to close up shop.

The first snapshot of job loss since COVID-19 began taking a toll on the Canadian economy shows 1.1 million out of work since the prior sample period and a consequent decrease in the employment rate – the lowest since April 1997. The most job losses occurred in the private sector and among people aged 15-24.

The number of people who were unemployed increased by 413,000, resulting in the largest one-month increase in Canada’s unemployment rate on record and takes the economy back to a state last seen in October, 2010.

“Almost all of the increase in unemployment was due to temporary layoffs, meaning that workers expected to return to their job within six months,” reads the findings.

The agency included three new indicators, on top of the usual criteria, to better reflect the impact of COVID-19 on employment across the country.

The survey, for example, excludes the more commonly observed reasons for absent workers — such as vacation, weather, parental leave or a strike or lockout — to better isolate the pandemic’s effect.

They looked at: people who are employed but were out of a job during the reference week, people who are employed but worked less than half their usual hours, and people who are unemployed but would like a job.
