• Samsung destroyed their water wells - then sued them!
    Samsing, operators of the North Kent Wind Farm, continue pile driving into the bedrock of Chatham Kent, knowing that it has destroyed the water wells of dozens of families. Ontario regulators are doing nothing to protect these families, who have relied on well water for generations. The pile driving sends toxic sediment into the water that ruins water pumps. The sediment could eventually settle, but the vibrations from the turbines prevent this. Ultimately, the pile driving has resulted in dozens of families and their farms being cut off from their water supply. A few farmers tried to blockade the site to prevent further damage and Samsung sued them for the cost of delays. Tell Samsung to clean up its act! Boycott their phones, TVs and appliances and demand your pension funds divest from them now.

  • TD Bank: My money is not for DAPL
    TD Bank should be transparent in what it does with the money of its customers. I have deposited my hard earned money at TD Bank for many years and only recently discovered that TD Bank is using my money to support DAPL

  • Stop Trump's Muslim Ban
    Trump lacks decency and the understanding that all humans are equal and deserve the same human rights. Let's put this to an end. We may not be able to protest alongside many in the US but we can make our voices heard by signing this petition

  • Change bylaw! Toronto Parking tickets on Switch over Days
    I'm very curious about something and it has my mind boggled. Switch over parking from one side to the other and parking tickets. So today I get a ticket in my car at 9:10am as I am walking to my car. He is ticketing all cars that haven't moved to the other side. So I speak with him and say why would you be doing this when it is 9 in the morning and some people haven't even got up yet... Work schedules etc. He says don't ask me... Thy tell us to and then you can go down and get it cancelled. I'm confused at this point and he says yup. You have a valid parking tag in your windshield and if it's before noon you can have it canceled. So at this point I become increasingly angry (not at him) because basically what he is telling me is that they are pumping out these tickets at 50 bucks a pop and you only need to send it in or go there to have it cancelled. How many tax payer dollars are being wasted on this pathetic practice?! Let's see. There are thousands of cars being ticketed every switch over morning and hundreds or parking enforcement officers doing it and then the car owner can go get it cancelled so there is manpower there doing that side of it. He shook his head and said it makes no sense as bylaw says ticket and city says we will cancel it. What the actual heck??? This is insane to me that our tax dollars are being spent on staffing this. Absolutely nuts!!! It says right on the site that you can have a noon grace to have it cancelled. Doesn't anyone fine this infuriating?!?! Place a noon deadline bylaw and no forgiveness. The end!!! Unbelievable ... Millions of Tax dollars wasted! And we sit back and allow this to happen!! Outrageous!

  • Unfair Parking Tickets!
    Every month when it's time to change your car over to the other side of the street, Parking Enforcement Officers start ticketing you after 9am. These same officers inform us that we can get the ticket cancelled if it's before noon by going downtown and fighting it as the City of Toronto has said that we have until noon as a grace period. This is ridiculous and a money grab as who on earth has time to fight an unfair ticket? They know it and we know it. It's unethical and mean spirited just to get their numbers up.

  • Maximum Lifetime Service - PMofC
    It's unwise to give someone too much power and control, or allow them to run our Country for too long. People who serve too long in positions like this have the potential to become Despots.

  • Make every vote count by instituting a proportional representation system by 2019.
    Currently, votes cast in our federal elections do not match the seats parties gain in Parliament. Consequently, we cannot ensure fair representation. We can and should reform our electoral system to make our democracy better for all Canadians.

  • Omnibus bills too diverse
    By compiling education and environment, financial and business, there are too many ignorant, undisciplined to understand the scope of ALL aspects of the bill. Could a politician trained in banking truly understand the importance of educational content for children. By appending major documents under one construct, not only does this repeal Constitutional documents, it clutters and buries smaller arguments under a complicated process that may thwart forward progress to assure the "greater" argument gets traction.

  • No interest loans for students
    These graduated students are the emerging middle class. An strong middle class is a prerequisite for the economic development of any country. If they begin their working lives with a burden of a debt, it is not good for them and Canada.

  • Guaranteed Annual Living Income
    A Guaranteed Annual Living Income will help ensure that every citizen has a fair access to finances to live a healthy life. By providing basic income to everyone you are empowering citizens to contribute to society in their own unique way. This may be through art and volunteering and entrepreneurship. With little bureaucracy overseeing the distribution of financial resources citizens will live their lives with more ease, less stress, and more dignity. Citizens will be empowered and motivated to contribute to their local and regional communities according to their gifts and interests as they will not be weighed down by financial burden. Artists and musicians and those who have precarious employment would have a financial safety net. Graduated students who are carrying huge debt loads will be more able to pay off their debts. I know of some cases where students have graduated and did not obtain high paying employment. They nevertheless were saddled with crushing debt along with trying to just make a living. Basic Income would help these graduate students. Young families and parents of school age children would greatly benefit. Mothers could stay home or work part-time while not sacrificing the needed second income. Demand for daycare would go down. Ever increasing school fees could be afforded. Young seniors who fall through the financial cracks due to health issues and unemployment would be better able to weather the financial storms. Entrepreneurs who due to health issues are not able to continue with their business. They often do not have needed financial safety nets if they are forced to shut down their business or sell it at a loss.
