  • Continue with the Ontario Basic Income Pilot Project.
    This pilot project is extremely important to all Ontarians, regardless of disability or any other individual or family life circumstance. There is still far too much poverty in this province as it is, and I applaud Miss Wynne for her efforts regarding this invaluable financial plan, one of very few good ideas she proposed during her party's long leadership tenure. As prices continue to rise on everything in our daily lives, this file's urgency is key.

  • Access to Justice
    We are a society based upon "the rule of law." But the volume and complexity of laws makes necessary the services of a lawyer to be able to enforce that rule of law. So, we cannot truthfully say that we are a constitutional democracy when we cannot enforce the rights, freedoms, and declaration of the rule of law in our constitution, i.e., declared in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

  • Buses for Manitoba: Replace the Greyhound!
    Manitoba is on the brink of a transportation crisis. Yesterday, Greyhound announced that they are completely shutting down all bus service in the province. [1] The end of this vital bus service will leave many people without transportation options -- particularly those living in more rural communities where public transportation is inadequate or non-existent, and those who don’t have access to their own vehicle to get around. We need to make sure that there’s a plan in place before the Greyhound service ends, so that the people who rely on their services aren’t left stranded. A massive public outcry will force our governments to take action, and ensure that communities impacted by Greyhound’s cuts continue to have access to transportation. Sign the petition now, and call on Manitoba's Minister of Infrastructure Ron R. Schuler and the federal Minister of Transport Marc Garneau to replace the Greyhound service in Manitoba.

  • Buses for British Columbia: Replace the Greyhound!
    British Columbia is on the brink of a transportation crisis. Yesterday, Greyhound announced that they are cancelling all but one of their bus routes in the province. [1] The end of this vital bus service will leave many people without transportation options -- particularly those living in more rural communities where public transportation is inadequate or non-existent, and those who don’t have access to their own vehicle to get around. We need to make sure that there’s a plan in place before the Greyhound service ends, so that the people who rely on their services aren’t left stranded. The BC government has already taken some steps to replace Greyhound services that were cut earlier this year, including introducing a pilot project to replace the long distance bus service along the Highway of Tears. Bus service along Highway 16 was a key recommendation of the Highway of Tears Symposium in 2006 -- and Indigenous groups and communities along the highway have been advocating for improved transportation on the route for years. Now, dozens more Greyhound bus routes across the province are in jeopardy. We need to turn up the pressure on our governments to take action, and ensure that communities impacted by Greyhound’s cuts continue to have access to transportation. Sign the petition now, and call on BC's Minister of Transportation Claire Trevena and the federal Minister of Transport Marc Garneau to replace the Greyhound service in British Columbia.

  • Petition to Honour Truth in Ontario Education
    The Ontario Ministry of Education is cancelling the Summer 2018 curriculum writing sessions. As part of these sessions, Indigenous people - including Elders and traditional knowledge holders - were invited to be involved in curriculum writing about Indigenous perspectives and Truth and Reconciliation (TRC). There are SO many reasons why it is crucial to have not only education ABOUT Indigenous history, perspectives, and truth and reconciliation - but Indigenous contributions TO the writing of this education. Cancelling the curriculum writing program without assuring Indigenous educators is a gross misstep, and is indeed taking us backwards rather than forward.

  • Protect Water
    Large international companies can take millions of litres of water each day, bottle it in tons of plastic, and then truck it out of local watersheds. Ontario's regulations are years behind in dealing with this issue. We need to update those regulations in order to protect water.

  • Soyez la solution à la pollution des océans
    Le plastique est le polluant le plus répandu dans nos océans. Il cause des dommages à l'environnement parce qu'il ne se décompose pas facilement et est souvent confondu avec de la nourriture par la vie marine. Plus d'un million d'oiseaux de mer sont tués par la pollution des océans chaque année. Près de trois mille dauphins et marsouins meurent chaque année de la consommation ou de l'enchevêtrement dans la pollution des océans. En outre, un million de mammifères marins sont tués chaque année à la suite de la pollution. Les eaux de ruissellement provenant de l'agriculture et des installations de production contribuent grandement à la pollution des océans. Le ruissellement des eaux usées conduit à la décomposition de la matière organique qui affecte la biodiversité marine. Les engrais qui sont déversés dans les eaux océaniques créent une eutrophisation et permettent aux algues de s'épanouir et d'épuiser la teneur en oxygène de l'eau. Les petits animaux au bas du changement alimentaire sont les plus susceptibles d'absorber ces produits chimiques. Ces petites créatures marines sont alors mangées et les produits chimiques remontent à travers la chaîne alimentaire, contaminant ainsi nos sources d'aliments marins. Nous devons empêcher que ces sources majeures de pollution ne détruisent complètement nos océans. La vie marine est vitale dans de nombreuses parties du monde. Ce monde mérite mieux. Qui sait combien de temps le problème continuera à s'aggraver et à quel point aurons-nous complètement détruit nos océans irréparables? Notre mission est de nettoyer les océans contre la pollution, en particulier la pollution plastique, par C.P.R, le nettoyage, la prévention et la réduction des déchets. Prévention du déversement en mer, des fuites d'huile et d'autres formes de pollution de l'océan. Nettoyage de la pollution actuelle des océans tels que les gyres à ordures et les plages polluées. Enfin, en réduisant nos déchets, il y aurait moins de pollution en général et dans nos océans.  ÊTRE LA SOLUTION À LA POLLUTION OCÉANIQUE!

  • Install recycling units at every bus stop in Ottawa, Ontario
    In 2002, there were recycling units at the bus stop in Elmvale, which have since been replaced by nothing more than open garbage containers. With that being the case, there are recyclable items ending up in landfills.
