  • Commit Vancouver to being a Good Food City
    As one of the C40 cities, the City of Vancouver must pledge to become a "Good Food City" and follow through by putting measures in place to reduce meat consumption and food waste while increasing the availability of plant-based options. At the conclusion of the 2019 C40 summit in Copenhagen, more than a dozen C40 cities released a declaration committing their cities to adopt scientific recommendations to support better food choices. Canada's most populous city (Toronto) signed on to the declaration, but Vancouver was conspicuously absent.

  • Pollution sonore aérienne inacceptable
    Nous, les citoyens de St-Bruno-de-Montarville, demandons au maire M. Martin Murray d’intervenir auprès de l’aéroport de St-Hubert et des différentes entités pour éliminer la pollution sonore engendrée par les avions qui circulent au-dessus des quartiers résidentiels. En période de beau temps, les petits avions volent à intervalle de 2 à 3 minutes entre 6h30 du matin jusqu’à passer minuit le soir. Le 31 août dernier, un Cessna a atterri d’urgence dans un champ à côté de l’aéroport de Saint-Hubert dû à une panne de moteur. Que serait-il arrivé s’il s’était écrasé au-dessus des quartiers résidentiels densément peuplés? Il n’y a ni urgence ni besoin pour cette fréquence déraisonnable et ce au-dessus des quartiers résidentiels familiaux et paisibles. Et quel est l'impact de cette pollution sonore sur la valeur de nos propriétés? Bien sûr, les citoyens peuvent porter plainte auprès de Transport Canada et de l’aéroport de St-Hubert. Pour ce faire, nous devons confirmer si l'avion respecte une altitude minimale de 1000 pieds et fournir les numéros se trouvant sous les ailes de l’avion (en plein vol). Cependant, qui est en mesure de capturer ces informations? On nous répond de toute façon que les pilotes sont dans leur droit de voler où bon leur semble et que la fréquence des vols ne fait pas l’objet d’une plainte. Qu’en est-il du droit des citoyens? En plus de tout ce trafic aérien engendré par les petits plaisanciers, la pollution sonore et atmosphérique provenant de Boeings 737-200, bannis dans d’autres pays, chassés de l’Ontario à la suite des plaintes répétées des citoyens, s’ajoutent à la pollution sonore des petits avions. Nous demandons que des solutions concrètes et rapides soient mises de l’avant pour redonner une qualité de vie à vos citoyens. La pollution sonore est un problème sérieux et surtout non nécessaire à St-Bruno-de-Montarville. Soyons proactif et ajoutons nos voix, entre autres, aux citoyens de Drummonville où la mobilisation citoyenne a engendré le déménagement d’une école d’aviation et à Saint-Roch-de-l’Achigan où la mobilisation citoyenne a permis au Ministère des transports de refuser les travaux d’un nouvel aérodrome car aucune gestion de la pollution par le bruit n’avait été proposé et qu’aucun citoyen n’avait été consulté. Nous demandons; 1. qu’une gestion intelligente du trafic aérien soit faite. Le trafic aérien est déjà centralisé à la tour de contrôle à l’aéroport de St-Hubert. a) Est-ce obligatoire qu’un plaisancier circule au-dessus des quartiers résidentiels? b) Si, à l’occasion, il y a obligation de circuler au-dessus des quartiers résidentiels, pourquoi ne pas exiger le respect, au minimum, de l’horaire statué dans le règlement de la ville de St-Bruno sur les bruits sonores : o entre 7 h et 21 h, du lundi au vendredi o entre 9 h et 17 h, le samedi o ou entre 10 h et 17 h, le dimanche 2. qu’une révision du dépôt d’une plainte soit faite afin que les citoyens puissent réellement avoir une voix sur le trafic aérien dans son ensemble. L’estimation de l’altitude d’un avion ou la lecture des lettres sous les ailes d’un avion en plein vol est complètement irréaliste et inadéquate. 3. qu’un représentant de St-Bruno-de-Montarville siège au sein du comité d’évaluation des bruits sonores de l’aéroport de St-Hubert ou tout autre comité qui s’occupe des enjeux de trafic et d’évaluation de bruits sonores. Nous serons là pour évaluer l’impact au lieu d’en subir les conséquences. M. Murray, considérant; o qu'aucune raison ne justifie que ces avions volent aussi fréquemment au-dessus de la Ville de Saint-Bruno-de Montarville et encore moins, au-dessus de quartiers résidentiels paisibles et familiales o que la ville a mis en place plusieurs règlements pour le respect des droits de ses citoyens tel que le règlement sur les bruits sonores o que le trafic aérien nuit à la réputation paisible et familiale de St-Bruno-de-Montarville. Nous vous demandons de nous représenter auprès des différentes entités pour trouver des solutions concrètes en respect des valeurs de la ville et de ses citoyens. Protégez vos citoyens et aidez-les à regagner leur qualité de vie familiale si prisée à St-Bruno-de-Montarville.

  • Ban all temp agencies and their labour exploitation

  • Black History Month/Black History in BC schools curriculum
    We have created this petition as we would like to see the celebration of Black History Month in all BC schools and that African Descent History is a part of the BC curriculum in schools. In Canada, “Every February, Canadians are invited to participate in Black History Month festivities and events that honour the legacy of Black Canadians, past and present.” So where is this invitation in BC schools? Many schools in BC do not even acknowledge Black History Month. I could not find anything on the celebration on Black History month on any BC school district websites. After the Vancouver Star, an article came out the Vancouver School board added a message about Black History. In December 1995, the House of Commons officially recognized February as Black History Month. Last year the province of British Columbia officially recognized February as Black History Month. So why is there no recognition in our schools? In Ontario, it is apart of the curriculum and Ontario does acknowledge Black History Month in schools. Ontario Elementary Teachers Federation has a poster in every school and is celebrating Black History Month with displays and celebrations. British Columbia Teachers' Federation has resources listed only. Which means it is up to the teachers' discretion to talk about it. Media articles about this: Vancouver Star article: https://www.thestar.com/vancouver/2019/02/05/its-not-enough-to-encourage-black-history-month-in-schools-bc-mom-says.html?fbclid=IwAR30L2qPZl7CO30uVdKwfeAZDEK3L61B85uGgyEyEHd_g1gNmvurZ3svnhQ CBC Radio https://ici.radio-canada.ca/nouvelle/1151411/histoire-noirs-absence-dans-enseignement-colombie-britannique?fbclid=IwAR3PHdnpcks64RxcCBuxWpXG2ncB-ARTmO2OtqVZTTMcBAWtgK2k4YoEdho

  • Get the LEAD OUT of our Drinking Water!
    Dear Canadian Municipal and Provincial Legislative Decision Makers and Indigenous Leaderships, I believe we need a focused effort to refine drinking water standards that exist for all Canadians. This effort can also be immediately transplanted to Reserve Drinking Water Safety Sampling... as far too many Reserves in Canada have no or poor standards for their drinking water.

  • Petition for Ottawa's Trees: Sign before September 9, 2019
    Dear Mayor and City Council, Move swiftly and decisively without further delay on updating Ottawa's Tree By-Laws, and ensure full and active implementation in a timely manner supported with appropriate resources. We, Ottawa’s neighbourhood groups, community associations, environmental organizations and residents, support the following By-law changes: 1. Early consideration of trees by making immediate changes to City internal and external processes involving building and development plans (as detailed in the Tree By-Law Review Discussion Paper) 2. Improved rules around tree permitting, specifying scenarios where tree permits will generally be issued and where they will not be issued, subject to particular circumstances. These rules must protect trees outside of the as-of-right building envelope, including trees in front and rear yards, on property lines and in neighbouring properties affected by excavation. 3. Inside the Greenbelt, require a permit to work around trees so that builders and residents put in place effective tree protection measures to be used for trees that are being retained. Too many are dying through negligence. 4. Lower the distinctive tree size in the Urban Tree Conservation By-law to 20 cm Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) for conifers and 30 cm DBH for broadleaf trees. Efforts are also need to stop pre-emptive cutting while the by-law is still under review. 5. Integrate into the tree-by law a heritage tree component that recognizes trees designated under the Ontario Heritage Act or registered with the Forests Ontario Heritage Tree Program. This is the approach taken by the City of Toronto, and provides Ottawa with a low-cost and sound method to identify and protect heritage trees in Ottawa. 6. Develop common tree compensation requirements for City-owned trees and trees on private property, involving monetary compensation and replacement in cases where trees are removed or injured. The compensation value must act as a strong disincentive to removing trees. We believe this should go beyond the International Society of Arboriculture’s Trunk Value formula to include the multiple and diverse economic and health benefits of trees. The USDA i-Tree calculator provides an international standard for this purpose. We also strongly urge the City to adopt a minimum ratio of 4 trees planted for every tree removed, allowing some of these trees to be planted within the affected neighbourhood if there is not sufficient room on the applicant’s property. 7. Develop an effective education and training process on tree retention, replacement and renewal for City staff and the various stakeholders in the building industry (planners, builders, excavators, architects, etc.) as well as the general public. Ongoing ignorance of tree protection measures is no longer acceptable. This process should ensure that front-line workers are able to identify and address risks to trees before they are damaged, and empower staff to issue stop work orders as needed. 8. Create a monitoring system that tracks the reasons for tree removal, applicant profile (builders and owner-residents, etc.) and other key elements of the tree permitting process, for reporting on an annual basis. Monitoring, at a minimum, should include: number of permits applied for each year; number of trees on the same property included under each permit; number of distinctive tree permits issued each year; number of distinctive tree permits denied each year; number of distinctive trees destroyed via the permitting process each year; number of infractions related to the by-law prosecuted in provincial court each year; compensation provided for tree removal, average and range of penalties imposed due to violations. In cases of conviction, the identity of the violator should be a matter of public record so that continuous abuse can be tracked. 9. The Auditor-General of the City of Ottawa should be required to conduct periodic audits on implementation of the tree by-law in relation to the Asset Management Plan for the City of Ottawa. 10. Establish linkages between the Tree By-Law, the Urban Forest Management Plan and the New Official Plan through reference to canopy cover goals, direction for early consideration of trees in land use and infrastructure, and valuation of the multiple benefits of trees in the context of the climate emergency and human health priorities for the City of Ottawa.
