• Labelling on food products that contain GMO's
    GMO's have caused poor and even nehative health impacts in some lab animals. Not enough is known about the real effects on human health. People should be able to make that decision for themselves.

  • Ban the Grizzly Hunt
    It's time to put an end to this barbaric and destructive so-called sport. It's time to stop killing these majestic wild creatures for blood-lust recreation. A very large majority of Canadians do not agree with killing of Grizzly Bears for amusement and would be happy to see this horrible wasteful killing activity ended. It is only a lobby by wealthy visiting hunters who keep this very unpopular "sport" legal. Listen to the Canadian People. They want Grizzly hunting to end. Now.

    This is important because it affects everyone.Costs to the healthcare system alone and the amount of reported illnesses caused from lack of treatment,awareness and the right to breathe properly are staggering!Some of the results are sudden death,increased blood pressure and cholesterol,people falling asleep while driving,working etc.This is an issue that has plagued our health care system for years and no government has done anything about it!

  • Modern pharmacare for a rejuvenated healthcare system
    Too many people in their old age are suffering, or unable to manage the expenses for prescription medications. If they want medication covered they must go on ODSP, but then they cant work, but although they are old, they must keep working because they are unable to retire, as its not financially viable for them. Many seniors as well as younger people these days are taking medications long term and unable to get the coverage for it. Having ODSP is no a viable option for those who must work to pay bills, mortgages etc.It doesnt make sense that we have health care, but the most important part of this, the medication is not included and its costs are through the roof Thanks

  • Voice for Segundina
    It is important for mother`s family to get closure. It is important for the public to know this sort of thing is happening. This week the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.ran this story: ``Medical errors are underestimated and could be the third leading cause of death in the U.S., say doctors calling for more transparency internationally. Death certificates in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. rely on a mortality coding system — the International Classification of Disease code, or ICD — that doesn't capture fatal consequences due to failures in health care. The ICD is used in medical record-keeping in 117 countries, including Canada. Estimates of how often people die not from a disease but from the care they received is based on limited and outdated methods,`` A medical error is one thing. Inducing untimely death to cover for that error is another. The truth must come out. This petition is Segundina`s voice.

  • The leadership of the Canada Revenue Agency has to go.
    News just broke that while KPMG was under investigation by the Canada Revenue Agency, their accountants were wining and dining CRA tax enforcers at a swanky Ottawa club that serves over-the-top delicacies like scallop ceviche and duck crostini. [1] This shocking news comes on the heels of reports that the CRA made a backroom deal to let super-rich KPMG clients involved in their tax dodging scheme off the scott free. [2] This scandal occurred under the leadership of Canada Revenue Agency Commissioner and CEO Andrew Treusch, a Harper-era appointee, and people are asking questions about how much he knew. But whether he was in on the scam, or just so out of touch that it could happen without his knowledge, one thing is clear: if Canada is going to crack down on tax dodging, we need new leadership at the CRA.

  • Reach for the Unbleached
    Because as David Suzuki has explained to the public, the earth is dying of a thousand cuts. To think globally and then act locally, I plan to warehouse the above non-bleached products and sell it to friends and neighbours at cost. Eventually, the movement will grow, until our whole town of Amherstburg, Ontario knows where to obtain unbleached paper products. -- Susan Monaghan, Amherstburg, Ontario

  • Infinito Gold-Canadá ¡Abandone la descabellada demanda (CIADI) en contra de Costa Rica!
    La minera Infinito Gold de Calgary, Canadá le está planteando una demanda por más de mil millones de dólares al gobierno de Costa Rica debido a que este país rechazó el plan de Infinito de construir una mina de oro a cielo abierto en una selva tropical. A Infinito Gold (hasta la fecha) no le ha importado lo que piense la población costarricense. Sin embargo, visto que la empresa celebrará su junta general de accionistas el 21 de noviembre, se presenta una oportunidad para presionar a la gerencia a que admita ante sus accionistas el vergonzoso acoso en que se ha involucrado – una dosis masiva de presión pública obligará a la empresa a abandonar la demanda de una vez por todas. Más del 75 por ciento de la población costarricense se opone a la mina propuesta y, en 2011, Costa Rica prohibió toda actividad de minería de metales a cielo abierto en el país. [1,2] En vez de respetar la decisión democrática de Costa Rica de rechazar el proyecto, Infinito está sirviéndose de demandas e intimidaciones para salirse con la suya. Ya intentó recusar a uno de los magistrados que puede no estar a favor del proyecto, y demandó a dos profesores universitarios costarricenses por sus críticas del proyecto. [5] Ahora Infinito intenta demandar a Costa Rica en cortes secretas. [3] John Morgan, presidente de la empresa, esperaba que la mina estuviera en pleno funcionamiento para el 2009. Sin embargo, en tres oportunidades distintas, la Corte Suprema de Costa Rica le indicó claramente “no” a Infinito, negándole el permiso para avanzar con su proyecto. [3,6] Pero, en vez de aceptar la ley y respetar la voluntad del pueblo de Costa Rica, los abogados de Infinito buscan que Costa Rica les otorgue más de mil millones de dólares mediante el arbitraje entre inversionista-estado bajo el Tratado de Inversión Bilateral Canadá-Costa Rica. La población costarricense quiere que Infinito haga las reparaciones por daños ambientales ilícitos [4]. Las y los costarricenses se manifiestan en contra de una empresa canadiense porque no los/as respeta, ni respeta sus esfuerzos en la protección del medioambiente, ni sus tribunales. Firma ya mismo la petición exigiendo que Infinito Gold respete la voluntad de la gran mayoría de costarricenses, que ponga alto a la intimidación ilícita de la gente y del gobierno de Costa Rica, que respete los consecutivos fallos de la Corte Suprema en contra de la mina Crucitas y que inmediatamente abandone la demanda. Y esta vez las firmas de costarricenses [y de ciudadanos(as) de otros países] se sumaran a las más de 1250 firmas ya recolectadas en la versión de esta campaña ya existente en ingles. Al unir nuestras fuerzas, podemos lograr metas admirables. Suma tu voz al decirle a Infinito que abandone su descabellada demanda de inmediato. Materiales de referencia: 1.
