  • Pandemic Response: Re-instate the Bank of Canada's constitutional role
    Re-instate the Bank of Canada's constitutional ability to create new “money” without increasing public debt. If not now, then when?... might we as a nation take back ownership of our now entirely arbitrary money supply (since leaving the gold backed system)? The Supreme court made it clear that it was parliament's role to make this decision. see:

  • Allow Internationally Trained Doctors (IMG) to Serve in BC!
    As we are going through challenging times in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe now is the time to put the talented and experienced International Medical Graduates (IMGs) who are currently in Canada to work. The current bylaw amendments proposed by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC to create a new "Associate Physician" class is a step in the right direction, and we applaud the college and the Ministry of Health for taking action. However, we believe more needs to be done to strengthen this amendment to help British Columbians and IMGs during this time and for the future: 1. In qualifications, we believe that postgraduate training should be reduced from 2 years to 1 year. The two-year requirement disqualifies many, if not most General Practitioners who were only required to do 1 or 1.5-year postgraduate training in their country of training. Furthermore, this reduction is in line with the qualifications required for IMGs in other jurisdictions such as Saskatchewan. 2. Remove the requirement for a ‘detailed written request’ from regional health authorities. Such bureaucracy puts a significant burden on IMGs and Health Authorities at a time of crisis when their focus and resources have to be directed towards dealing with COVID-19. 3. Expand the category beyond ‘acute care setting’ to include a broader range of clinical settings required in the current battle against COVID-19. 4. Make this a path towards ‘Full Registration’ of IMGs. This change is crucial not only to incentivize IMGs to apply and make this a practical step in addressing the pandemic, but also to ensure that we have proper human resources to address the waitlists resulted from cancelling all elective operations in the system. It is neither fair nor reasonable to expect IMGs to put themselves in harm's way with no prospect of future employment in our healthcare system. 5. Reduce or waive the $340 registration fee, or postponing it until after the end of the pandemic. Such a high fee is a financial barrier on IMGs, as they already had trouble with employment due to issues regarding foreign credential recognition. Having a burden for what appears to be a very restricted class is excessive. 6. Facilitate life insurance for IMGs admitted as ‘Associate Physicians’.

  • Canadian banks -reduce credit card interest rates to 2% during COVID 19
    In this time of economic uncertainty and job loss, Canadian banks should give back and reduce credit card interest rates more than 10% to 2%. They will still make a profit. Decrease the credit card interest rate to 2% for every Canadian automatically, without bureaucracy, until the crisis is over and people go back to work.

  • Fair Canadian Pension Plan For All Canadians
    Why is nothing is being said about elderly people over the age of 60 that were forced to retire early because of sickness or operation "I had a growth inside my chest and to remove it they had to operate. They removed 1/3 of lung and they shaved a bit off my heart "I do not smoke" and I was unable to continue working and unable to collect sick benefits because doctor figured at 61 there is no reason I should not be able to continue working. Six months later I ran into cardiovascular issues with my heart and blood pressure. My wife has "COPD" that she has had for a long time at 61 can't work. We collect CPP and can't afford to live. I receive just over $400.00 and she receives $208.00 our rent is $683.00 a month. You can do the math . We worked hard all our lives and now can't afford to live. Our saving are gone and have no benefits of any kind. We are unseen by our Government and will get no help .

  • Tell PM Trudeau: Close the gaps in COVID-19 Emergency Benefits so no one is left behind
    An unprecedented number of Canadians have lost their jobs and income opportunities because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) is meant to offer urgent financial relief for anyone whose income source has been decimated by COVID-19. While the financial relief CERB provides will protect many people, there are enormous gaps in who is eligible. Millions of people will be excluded — people like myself, a student — who do not meet the unfair eligibility criteria but will be left without income. We are calling on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to close the gaps in the CERB so everyone can pay their bills and put food on the table during this crisis.

  • Workers claiming Federal Covid 19 benefits will cause loss of spouses' disability income!
    I propose the following to both Provincial and Federal Governments; -That the Federal Government promptly address the Ontario Government, on this this cruel claw back of Emergency Federal funding, dollar for dollar, by ODSP, for workers whose spouses are disabled. Even temporary suspension on these claw backs, would help workers support their vulnerable family members and reduce their need to apply for ODSP discretionary funds, so that these emergency funds, are directed instead, to the most vulnerable, and those WITHOUT family support! Why are workers, with spouses on ODSP being penalized? Especially during the Covid 19 crisis? We work as hard as other workers! This should at least, be stopped, for the duration of the pandemic! -Please direct the Provincial Government to be transparent with the ODSP offices, and immediately provide the ODSP offices with clear direction, on these discretionary funds. Release these funds to their offices promptly, to help the most vulnerable groups...the seniors and the disabled!  In speaking with ODSP Caseworkers and Supervisors, no direction, by the Province has been given and no funding, as promised by the Ford Provincial Government, has been allocated to date. The ODSP office is being inundated with calls from other people, requesting these discretionary funds...where are these discretionary funds? I have elderly and disabled neighbours, whom have no food, nor supplies! Not to mention the stress these ODSP Provincial workers are under, due to the increase in calls from stressed Recipients. -Please direct the Provincial Officials /Ministers, and their Representatives, to refrain from making stereotypical, judgemental statements about ODSP recipients, and their family members, and to interact with ALL Members of Society with compassion and empathy during this difficult crisis!  Those on ODSP, most of whom are already immuno-compromised, have been waiting in dread, and are under tremendous stress, because nothing is being addressed on these issues by the Provincial Government! -Please direct the Province in immediately addressing this issue, to relieve the uncertainty and stress of ODSP Recipients, and their supporting spouses! Many of these seniors and disabled citizens have not had the opportunity to shop for food supplies, etc., so they can shelter in, to reduce, and avoid, contracting or spreading this deadly contagion. With the continued hoarding, what chance does a senior citizen, or disabled person, have to obtain their necessities such as food, medicines, etc.? What measures have been put in place so they can get their needs met without putting their health, and others, at risk? This pandemic does not discriminate and it is growing at alarming rates. -It would be prudent to suspend the ODSP claw backs, of worker emergency federal Covid 19 funding, at least during this Provincial and Federal crisis and Global Pandemic, so workers can better support their ODSP family Members and neighbors. We are all in this together! Federal and Provincial Governments, words and promises of supporting the most vulnerable of your fellow Canadians mean nothing, however, your actions will! Thank you

  • Expand COVID-19 testing to save lives
    Please help relax regulations so that under a state of emergency, research labs can perform COVID-19 testing under the full supervision and control of public testing labs, with all required quality assurance and privacy protection measures. Normally this red tape is important. Right now it is blocking our ability to respond quickly: An open letter to the Ontario Minister of Health: Dear Ms Elliott, We are a group of concerned Canadians regarding the outbreak of SARS COV2. As we are not the first and only country to be facing this challenge, we believe there is much to learn from experiences across the globe. In evaluating the resources that become limited early on in a country’s battle with this virus, it is clear that beyond healthcare workers there are three major concerns: 1. Testing – this is the first resource to become limited. There are critical examples in South Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan whose testing capabilities have limited the spread of disease despite early exposures [1, 2]. 2. Personal protective equipment (PPE)– while this is not a major focus of our purpose, wartime levels of production of these are critical. In Italy, the limits of PPE supply leads to patients not having visitors, and exclusion of healthcare professionals from caring for patients [3] 3. Ventilators – certainly, the triage of ventilators has been well covered in the news in Italy. Regarding testing, experience from Italy suggests that “were they to do this again”, increasing testing capabilities would be their first priority [4]. We are already seeing the limits of our testing capacity in Ontario and British Columbia, as patients are only being tested should a result change their in-hospital management. Unfortunately, this capacity is unacceptable. Considering that SARS COV2 has asymptomatic transmission, limiting testing to this population prevents us from gaining adequate control in the community [5]. We need testing capacity to investigate those at increased risk of infection with SARS COV2, not just those with a presentation of COVID 19. In South Korea, innovative approaches to testing facilities has allowed the mapping of disease spread to control and limit the effects of an early outbreak [2]. This was replicated in a small community in Italy, where they have stopped the spread of COVID 19 despite the burden of disease in neighboring cities [6]. In Hong Kong, best practice guidelines are followed such that patients who test positive are not discharged from care until they convert to negative testing [7]. It is likely that this practice has contributed to near complete disease control in Hong Kong despite sharing a border with the original epicentre of this virus. As provinces continue to fall behind in their testing abilities, there is good news. Due to social distancing and university mandates, many of Canada’s research facilities and researchers sit idle. Those with experience in polymerase chain reaction assays, which are critical in the manual test for SARS COV2, sit at home, eager to contribute. With increased testing capacity, citizens would be able to be tested under more safe conditions than in a hospital waiting room, like in a drive through as in South Korea and New York State. Testing could eventually map spread throughout the community amongst asymptomatic individuals that lead them into more dedicated quarantine. Furthermore, when symptoms develop and medical attention is required, those known positives could then be directed to COVID 19 dedicated hospitals or emergency departments, limiting spread to non-infected individuals. Certainly, there are challenges in quality control and utilization of non-public health laboratories for this testing. Under regular circumstances, this may not be possible; however, under the current circumstances we firmly believe that without increased testing capacity, avoiding constraints on PPE and ventilators may not be possible either.
