    Compared to the budget it is ca 20 mill CAD (low) 'waiting' pr month. How much waiting do you support.

      Quit being unreasonable.

      I think we should still try to make him aware .. but he just inherited this mess, he didn't create it. Let's give him a chance. Takes me three months to settle into a job and another six months to feel extremely comfortable with it so I'm just going from my own experiences.

      Don't give me a hard time - I am certainly not well and absolve responsibility for my words or actions until I am feeling better. It feels like I have pneumonia on top of everything else going on. Probably a visit to emerge in order tomorrow.

      I would still encourage people to write the Governor General who was made Patron of the Relay about to start August 24th .. I know I will .. and my best argument will be that I did everything I was supposed to do and I did it right .. where are they with treatments? Pretty good argument ... because I'm having trouble accessing just regular health care .. I want my tax dollars back along with my donations!

          Of course it is. It is about all of us.

            Yes, Leif. I'm well aware. There's no being reasonable with you .. so have at it .. but that snarky attitude of yours does more to make others avoid you than work with you.

                Everything and anything can be about all - this isn’t as such. The case in discussion here are more about the few working for themselves. Lynnifer has for example been nails out whenever questioning such, but as I can see now she has become the real investigational journalist - oh great.

                  Yes thank you. Enjoy alienating more people with your posts.

                      See this:

                      Hansen is a media darling and no one wants to be anywhere but on his good side. So if Rick Hansen wants something, people tend to give it to him
                      .....
                      Having met him twice, the reality is very deflating. He’s a celebrity and like most celebrities he’s really all about Rick, his ego his money his fame.

                      That supports the the hipothesis that there is a scam here.

                        I think that is unlikely that this new CEO will make any changes. If you google him you will find info that don't give much hope he is a cure oriented guy.
                        We need to put as much pressure as possible on the cure to, maybe, get a few damn $ for it.

                        I agree that when you start a new job it takes months to getting things under control, so that is the most effective time to make him hear our voice.

                          Someone should ask them what are the acomplishments they made in terms of cure paralisis and the other stuff in this 25 years, because some people talk about them like they were the saviors of SCI people in Canada, and i can´t find anyhthing that support that idea.
                          All i can see is many useless titles and awards, a organization that is used like a business playground, obscene salaries, selfish and arrogant attitude, and the shadow of a "SCI is business, don´t do anthying to stop it" way of thinking.

                          TBH i think Rick never take real control of his own organization, he is only the name and the face to put out when they need get funds, nothing more. Charity is a very profitable if you know how to manage it.

                            I think that to write to the Governol General could be very effective to push RHF spending back on track of common sense.

                            We don't want the Canadian government to stop giving money to RHF, we just want that RHF really spend some money for cure research as they say.

                            And also to stop using money for paying such high salaries and leave people in need behind!
