  • For democracy and equality
    An EQUALLY OWNED BY WORKER'S ENTERPRISES in control of an enterprise would completely reverse gross inequality in the organization. Would exchange creation of work done for the purpose of making a living for finishing work done for the enhancement of the life living of life. We should stop making a living, finding our selves alive we should simply live. To compete with to compete with democratic equally owned by worker's enterprises dictatorial corporations would find that they need to to pay higher wages and salaries to employees as well compensation for the lack of governance voting power that corporate employees would experience when working for dictatorial corporations as opposed to democratically operated and equally owned organizations. Equally Owned by Worker's Enterprises would be democratic workplaces as opposed to shareholder owned corporations that are controlled by boards of directors that are dictatorships. Members of Equally Owned by Worker's Enterprises would be better paid than the employees of present day corporations. Members of Equally Owned by Worker's Enterprises would retain membership in their organizations and be reassigned work or have membership transferred to another organization as opposed to being laid off, or simply work shorter days or weeks with their fellows. Equally Owned by Worker's Enterprises would be harmonious with ecological policy and conservation policy. Workers at a factory would have a more direct view of any pollution and probably not care for tolerating it. Equally Owned by Worker's Enterprises would avoid re-manufacturing as much as possible by designing longer-lived products that would be manufactured and sold once or twice in a century instead of multiple times for more profit. The work goals would not be to create work for the sake of employment work but to get it done for benefit being finished and doing something else to enhance lives until all was done. Spending money could still derived from selling after manufacturing stopped, from the inventory that was manufactured for estimated future need. When manufacturing would be done it could be done at rate that would be faster than consumption. What an EQUALLY OWNED BY WORKER'S ENTERPRISE is: It is a productive or service business that is collectively owned only by the employees with equal to each other equity. Each member would be having equal voting power. Acceptance of new members, deployment of capital, amounts of remuneration and operations would be controlled by the employee owners. Profits to be distributed equally when and if democratically directed.

  • Remove single use plastics from supermarkets
    Plastic is not biodegradable and even when we place it in the blue bin it does not guarantee it will be recycled. Mountains of plastic are in the oceans and in poorer countries that import our waste. Despite being the source of a huge amount of plastic waste, supermarkets like Loblaws and Sobeys have been slow to reduce their waste. They have the buying power to tell major brands to start using more sustainable packaging.

  • Midwives are essential
    Saving the lives of Mothers and babies by continued sustainable funding for regulated education. Midwifery is not a business, it is an essential service. Fees for continued registration and education should not be a barrier to entry or continued employment. The provincial annual operational grant has been in place for 25 years because previous governments have recognized the importance of midwifery. "Midwives really do shoulder a proportionally higher burden of professional fees through our regulatory college to begin with," Elizabeth Brandeis, president of the Association of Ontario Midwives,... "So this cut of government support really does put that extra burden on midwives." Many women prefer to have a midwife than a doctor for prenatal and after birth care and there aren't enough midwives in Ontario. Midwives provide 6 weeks of support after the birth as well. They monitor the health of baby and mother after birth as well as coach with breast feeding and other newborn needs. As a mother of two I am very grateful that I was able to have a midwife for both pregnancies and births. The prenatal care was incredible, and even though there were complications in deliveries, each delivery was amazing and calm because of my midwives. They are skilled and able to deal with any issues as they are specialists. For postnatal care my midwife visited my home several times to check on how things were going. Then after the initial few weeks there were weekly visits to the clinic to check on baby and mother. She gave me the support, coaching, and information I needed that made me feel that everything was going ok. From CBC "there is already far greater demand for services than the province's 956 registered midwives can provide. "We know upward of 25 to 40 per cent of people who want to have a midwife can't currently access a midwife." "The combination of inequitable pay and higher professional dues really does create a tremendous stress on midwives." - Elizabeth Brandeis , president of the Association of Ontario Midwives This is a retrograde step for Ontario, while Alberta is leading the way "The loss of government funding in Ontario is in stark contrast to a boost for midwifery announced earlier this week by the Alberta government."; Alberta has also increased funding for midwifery services by $11 million over the last three years, bringing the total to $49 million. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/windsor/college-of-midwives-ontario-funding-cut-1.4946081

  • Ford: restore provincial funding to Ontario College of Midwives
    Midwives deliver 15 per cent of the babies born in Ontario, care for 12 to 14 per cent of pregnant women and are turning away clients because they can’t meet the demand, according to the Association of Ontario Midwives (AOM), which plays an advocacy and support role for midwives. We need MORE funding. Not less The decision to remove all funding shows a contempt for the profession and for women's needs

  • Help Motion 110 - Extended leave for parents of infant or child loss
    There are several families like my own and MP Tom Kmiec's who have experienced the life altering pain of child or infant loss who could have benefitted from extended time to heal, process, or help our significant other heal beyond the standard ESA standards act or corporate allowances that are insufficient for this specifically devastating type of loss.

  • Replace CPP/QPP and OAS/GIS with a universal, annual pension for all Canadians
    Every Canadian should live with dignity regardless of their circumstances. Combing the resources of all Federal and provincial income support programs could fully fund such a pension program with enough left over to support low-income housing and other social programs to lift everyone out of poverty. Such initiatives would also reduce medical and prescription costs as well as impact significantly to reduce the cost of situational mental disorders and associated stressors.

  • Don't send the Rohingya back to genocide
    Bangladesh planned to start sending Rohingya refugees back to Burma on November 15th. There are rumours of delays. There are rumours it has already started. The UN has described the genocide in Burma as ongoing. They have said that the conditions in Burma are not conducive to the voluntary, safe, dignified, and sustainable return of refugees. BUT The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has made a deal with the governments of Bangladesh and Burma. The UNHCR has agreed to assess if the refugees that Bangladesh wants to send back, are going willingly. This means the UNHCR is helping to facilitate a process of repatriation, even though they know it is not safe to go back. This repatriation process has sparked terror in the camps. Some refugees have fled into hiding, a few have attempted suicide. Canada is on the executive committee of the UNHCR. Canada is the 8th largest donor to UNHCR. Canada needs to stop this process now.
