    So has it been dropped, as far you know? It had a pretty absurd list of defendants.

    Not at all. A friend told me lawsuits of this nature can be quite common to silence opponents who may be "loud & objective. You will not hear anything from the people who were subpoenaed.
    In my opinion Carmen went to far by going after prominent individuals in his lawsuit

    The suspicious (drug/gang-like) activity around the sketchy rental house on my street has been really quiet in the last week or so. I cannot help but wonder if there was any sort of connection to this recent bust. Wouldn't surprise me one bit.

    You know how the cops cheered when the guy involved in Ezio Faraone's death was found dead from an overdose? I will do the same when I read an article about Pervez/Shah's death. I actually look forward to that day. This guy is a loser and the planet will be a better place upon his demise.

    Edmonton landlord arrested again, charged with weapons offences


    An Edmonton landlord who once served time in prison for mortgage fraud has been arrested for the third time in less than a year, and now faces several new charges.Edmonton police say officers executed a search warrant on a property near 93rd Street and 111th Avenue on Friday and seized ammunition, an edged weapon and stolen property.
    Abdullah Shah was arrested and charged with two counts each of careless use of a firearm, possession of an offensive weapon dangerous to the public and possession of stolen property under $5,000. He was also charged with three counts of breach of recognizance.
    A bail hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
    Shah, also known by the name Carmen Pervez, was charged in March with possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of stolen property over $5,000 and breach of bail conditions.
    In December 2015, he was charged with 13 counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking, one charge of possession of stolen property over $5,000 (proceeds of crime), one charge of possession of an offensive weapon dangerous to the public and one charge of careless use of a firearm.
    Shah has said he owns about 100 rental properties in the Edmonton area.
    In 2005, he was charged in a $30-million fraud scheme that netted his companies more than $1.8 million. He pleaded guilty to 54 charges of fraud and 19 charges of possession of property obtained by crime.

    so, ignoring the conviction for a $30-million fraud scheme that netted his companies more than $1.8 million (for which he pleaded guilty to 54 charges of fraud and 19 charges of possession of property obtained by crime), he was charged 7 months ago with 13 counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking, one charge of possession of stolen property over $5,000 (proceeds of crime), one charge of possession of an offensive weapon dangerous to the public and one charge of careless use of a firearm and then charged 4 months ago with ipossession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of stolen property over $5,000 and breach of bail conditions only to be charged today with with two counts each of careless use of a firearm, possession of an offensive weapon dangerous to the public and possession of stolen property under $5,000 and three counts of breach of recognizance...

    Isn't this guy clearly a dangerous offender? Every single chance he gets, he's committing crimes with absolutely no regard for the consequences. They may not be physically violent, but they have deep and wide ranging impacts. He should be put away indefinitely.

    I'd like to see an access to information search on the properties that Shah owns. Then share that information with the community leagues so he can be run out.

    f this were the US, the 3 strikes law would put him behind bars for a very long time.

    I hope nobody here has been terribly inconvenienced by his defamation lawsuit.

    3 strikes laws are unjust and are being repealed. Automatic severe sentences for minor crimes is silly. This guy needs to be put away on the merits of his long list of serious crimes, not a default "steal 3 chocolate bars go to jail forever" law.

    ^Agreed, the 3 strikes law is definitely too punitive so I'm not advocating for it. But the sentence for his new transgression should reflect his repeated offences and general propensity for crime.

    I still have a problem with someone being convicted of a multi-million dollar fraud being allowed to retain millions in assets. Instead of putting him in jail, his houses should have been transferred to the financial institutions he defrauded. Scammers shouldn't be sent to jail, they should be made penniless and sent out onto the street with nothing. He does deserve jail time if he is convicted of the weapons offenses though.

    I'm not entirely sure how all of his assets were not seized as proceeds of crime. Everything he has was gained from his lifelong criminal enterprise.

    ^^ I wasn't thinking of civil forfeiture, which was a terrible idea that should be reversed ASAP. Rather, the base sentence for a conviction of theft or fraud should be restitution to the victim, with the criminal court judge able to impose additional penalties in the form of fines of up to double the amount stolen and/or community service.

    Chinatown resident blames cluster of social agencies for drug-addict 'ghetto'
    http://edmontonjournal.com/news/poli...-addict-ghetto

    Four times a day, Georgina Fiddler, 63, takes her little dog Jack for a walk through her neighbourhood. Fiddler loves the area, with its bakeries, vibrant business sector and many fine families, but she is also angered and upset by what she sees on her walks.
    She lives downtown in an apartment in the Hull Block in Chinatown, an area that is a bustling business and residential district by day, but by night turns into a chaotic public party place for Edmonton’s homeless and its drug and alcohol addicts.

    “It’s like party central,” Fiddler says. “I don’t mean that in an ignorant way, but these are people who are lost.”
    On her walks, she often sees addicts passed out or camping in the alley, along with empty bottles and used syringes. One recent morning, as local children were catching a school bus, a man sat on the sidewalk nearby injecting drugs.
    “Why are these children not valued the same as the children that are in Garneau, Terwillegar?” Fiddler asks.
    Fiddler is so fed up with lack of action to clean up the area that she’s started her own “Make It Awkward” campaign, both calling attention to the suffering while also calling out inner-city social agencies, which Fiddler says do too much enabling of the problem and not enough fixing.
    She’s also fed up with the policy of concentrating social services for the homeless and the addicted in this one neighbourhood.
    One evening she was out for a walk with Jack when she came upon a large group of people drinking and blocking the sidewalk. Fiddler moved onto the road to walk by, but had an altercation with an intoxicated native woman, who cursed Fiddler as a “white b–ch,” then chased Fiddler down the street (Fiddler has light skin but is Métis, a descendant of Hudson Bay company fur trader Peter Fidler, 1769-1822, and his Cree wife, Mary Mackagonne).

    No neighbourhood in the city wants these people. Maybe they could move the govt services to a wilderness area. People could live in the bushes, drink and use needles etc among the trees, they don't complain. Be better than the river valley, our parks, back alleys, sidewalks and parking lots. Or, have the services in the north where a lot of these people come from. Take the services to them rather than have them come to the services here. Just saying. Their last resort neighbourhood now wants them out of here so maybe it's time to do something about it.

    The worst part about the problems with the homeless people is that their movement is unpredictable. They just show up in a new neighbourhood, or settle in the river valley, after getting kicked out of one. I still wonder what percentage of homeless are from outside of Edmonton. Also, I wonder if the new homeless hangout is around 124 Street and 118 Avenue.

    I've no problem with people making their home in the treed areas of the River Valley but unfortunately they seem to always leave piles of garbage all over the site even after they have left and moved on. Some of them "haul in" garbage in shopping carts which are often left there contaminating the area with the contents. Sorry to say this but the attempts to house these people in new apartments seems to be attracting them from all over the place. Maybe City Council should re-think some of their plans.

    An interesting series of podcasts by CBC

    I haven't listened yet. Stupid title.

    Why is it a podcast, again? There is less news on my local CBC Radio One "news" programming all the time. Can CBC Radio sell ads on podcasts? Anna Maria Tremonti recently left The Current to work exclusively with CBC Podcasts.

    Podcasts are a rapidly growing market, although CBC seems to be a couple years late in trying to catch that wave. As far as ads go, I haven't listened to those particular podcasts yet, but you can download the actual mp3's. Maybe there's some ads embedded within, but given that it's an mp3, there's little stopping you from advancing the playback by 30 seconds or whatever to get past any ads.

    I've only listened to 2.5 episodes, but the only ads are the ones right at the beginning -- advertising for other CBC content, for about 30 seconds. Maybe something at the very end. It's very meaty. Interesting stuff about a certain super notorious local landlord.

    Podcasts are an easy & inexpensive way for media/news organizations like the CBC to provide a deeper dive into stories or cast a wider net on content than what fits in the current soundbite-centric, low-attention-span commercial broadcast environment.

    One of the central tennants of public broadcasting is they don't have to compete in a commercial broadcast environment. Other public radio broadcasters do relevant, long form journalism.

    How would compiling/broadcasting a radio report be any more costly than doing the same over the internet?

  34. #234

    While I agree one of their tenets is that they don't have to kowtow to commercial interests directly, they still have to compete for attention versus all the other media outlets.

    The cost may not be a monetary one, but one of opportunity. Giving a condensed or paraphrased 2 minute glimpse into a few stories may be more palatable to the audience than a 12-20-60 minute dive on any one topic. I know I've gone looking for multiple podcasts from the CBC spurred by a handful of stories I heard while running a single short errand, I would not be nearly as well-informed if I had only gotten half of the longer, in-depth version of just one of the stories on the radio.

    it would be easier to agree if the on-air programming and reporting did reference/link to more in-depth podcasts on those topics but i'm not sure that is their business/operating model.

    at the moment at least it seems like they are airing those podcasts in full over the air not once a day but twice so a series of 4 1/2 podcasts is actually consuming 4 hours of air time. i'm not sure what the difference is between having their reporters or columnists fill that time as reporters or columnists and filling that time by airing podcasts unless it's a way to pay fewer individuals more money for the content as they're now buying and airing the content rather than paying them to create content for the air.

    I don't think that's a zero sum game either because it will lead to fewer people in the delivery chain meaning (a) fewer topics get covered and (b) there will be an inclination to provide those topics with more air time than the coverage might warrant as that's more profitable for the content provider and less costly for the broadcaster.

    Many of Edmonton's problem properties are concentrated in the hands of a small group of landlords. And they all have a connection to one man: a landlord and convicted fraudster named Abdullah Shah, also known as Carmen Pervez.

    Slumlords would be out of business tomorrow if the developers and leaseholders who displaced former tenants had to sign a 25-year contract to ensure those people were housed.

    Do any of the condominium tenants downtown know the identities of those they forced out of their homes? Do not look too harshly upon the slumlord: his name is yours.

    bs...

    the vast majority if those condos were built on vacant or commercial land.

    the vast majority of those slumlord tenants are there for many of the same reasons that homelessness is such an issue - lack of proper individual support, both financial and systems, primarily from the federal and provincial governments.

    so yeah, his name is yours but that includes pretty much all of us including you and me, not downtown condo developers and residents.

    Heh, the whole gentrification narrative really doesn't work all that great in Edmonton, given how much of recent developments have happened on dirt lots or have been repurposing of underutilized/vacant buildings. There's a few "gentrified" buildings here and there, but really, virtually everything in the CBD that's been built in the past 15 years was a gravel parking lot or an abandoned warehouse. My conscience is quite clear in that regard.

    ^True dat. I think the Mirador demo will be the first case of residents being displaced I can recall in my, um, ahem, few years here.

    On another note, not sure it's the closing, or imminent closing of Dwayne's House - but noticing a lot more homeless sleeping (day and night) on park benches DT, or LRT station stairways

    The province really needs to step-up.

    It's been steadily getting worse for the last 5 years, with a big uptick since right around September 8, 2016.

    No one said that those situations didn't exist. I specifically said a "few" did. But a post was made painting all new condos and redevelopments in Edmonton as being guilty of displacing people, when the reality is the vast majority of new housing stock built downtown in the last 20 years has not displaced a single soul because they were built on empty lots or were redeveloped abandoned buildings.

    Actual hard data suggests that gentrification isn't actually a negative on those being displaced, it has a neutral effect.

    “The board is concerned that a police officer advising a civilian that he has the power to proceed with an arrest and a search without a warrant, when he did not have the lawful authority to do so, could potentially cause an unknowing civilian to consent to or comply with an otherwise unreasonable or unjustifiable search,” the board wrote.
    Shah is a real piece of work, no doubt. That doesn't mean officers should be lying to him about his rights. Looks like they also invented a pretext to question him in the first place, as well.

    I just hope that Carmen Pervez (or Abdulla Shah, or whatever the hell his name is now) keeps getting raided and harassed by police, keeps getting his drugs and weapons confiscated, keeps getting his mould-infested firetrap flophouses shuttered by health authorities, and has to keep paying and arm and a leg to dodgy lawyers to keep his *** out of prison for the rest of his pathetic life. There are a few slumlords I have had problems with, but he is the WORST I have encountered, bar none. His name is notorious for a reason - and it's not because he's a good guy.

    I wonder how many of these above buildings AHS can shut down.

    Let's hope that EPS is doing everything by the book. It would be a shame for him to slink away on a technicality. Hopefully they put him away for a long time.

    CBC update on last week's raid


    Five 'persons of interest' targeted in raids on Edmonton properties, police say
    Search warrants were executed last week by police and Canada Revenue Agency


    Notorious Edmonton landlord Abdullah Shah and five others are considered persons of interest in an investigation that led the Canada Revenue Agency and Edmonton police to raid several properties across the city last week, police say.


    Warrants executed on July 24 were related to allegations of laundering the proceeds of crime, trafficking controlled substances, participation in a criminal organization, tax evasion, obtaining credit by false pretences and trafficking the proceeds of crime, a spokesperson for Edmonton police said.


    Five others who are persons of interest in the investigation are Shairose Esmail, Jennifer Vuong, Ralph Hoffman, Sarah Fassman and Harkamaljit Kahlon, also known as Tony Kahlon or Tony Singh, police said.


    The raids included Shah's family home and four buildings in McCauley with ties to the notorious landlord, also known as Carmen Pervez.


    No charges have been laid and police have not yet publicly identified any suspects.
