Petition to Canadian Government
New Human Trafficking Legislation
Human trafficking is a growing crisis in Canada, with majority of victims being Indigenous females and youth under the age of 25. Protect Our People is a grassroots social movement created with the intent of providing emotional support to victims and survivors, sharing resources/services and raising awareness to the human trafficking crisis. We like to focus on preventative and protective measures as a means of combatting human trafficking within Canada. For this specific petition, we want to push for a new legislation that ensures medical professionals (doctors, nurses, etc.) medical administration officers, and emergency first responders to receive mandatory training to identify human trafficking victims. It's estimated that nearly half of victims come into contact with some sort of medical professional during their exploitation and unfortunately there is no protocol or screenings set in place to help and identity these victims.
Petition to Governor General of Canada
Remove Justin Trudeau as PM
Trudeau does not put Canadians first. Canadians need his help more than refugees & his attention he's paying towards Muslims. We don't need Sharia Law. We don't need to accommodate Islamic prayer in the legislature, call to prayer broadcast over loudspeakers in neighbourhoods, we don't need no-go zones or Muslim only areas. Wilfred Laurier said it best! 'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes a Canadian and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet a Canadian, and nothing but a Canadian. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is a Canadian, but something else also, isn't a Canadian at all. We have room for but one flag, the Canadian flag. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the Canadian people.' Wilfrid Laurier 1907 Stop selling Canada out. This is a Judeo-Christian country. We have but 1 law. 2 official languages and immigrants should earn the right to become Canadian not claim refugee status to get a free pass.
Petition to Canadian Government
Stop Immigrants crossing into Canada from USA
Canadians are sick and tired of being treated like second class citizens while refugees enter Canada illegally and are given better treatment than a long list of deserving Canadians: Seniors, Veterans, Soldiers suffering from mental stresses, the homeless and Native communities that are neglected in so many ways. Illegal immigrants are now receiving free education and can bump a Canadian student out of list for College and University. Trudeau has a plan it seems to spend tax payers' money on an unproven immigration plan that overburdens our welfare system and infrastructure. Stop immigration until an open and honest debate can occur and develop a plan that benefits Canada.

Stop Raiding our Dispensaries!
On March 9, 2017, Toronto Police Services, Hamilton Police Services and the Vancouver Police Department participated in ‘Project Gator’, which included 7 co-ordinated raids against Cannabis Culture stores across Canada. They ripped art off the walls, tore apart personal lockers, stole equipment and seized a total of 62kg of Cannabis and $250,000 cash. The Canada-wide raids follow 2016’s larger ‘Project Claudia’ seizures and arrests, resulting in 279kg Cannabis removed from the Toronto market, as well as countless smaller arrests and seizures across Canada. The Toronto Police Service’s fixation on Cannabis dispensaries is wasteful and disturbing. Unlike real organized crime, which contributes to shootings and overdoses, dispensaries are open about their illegal activity and therefore much easier to investigate. By devoting thousands of hours and millions of dollars prosecuting dispensaries, resources are diverted from meaningful police operations toward violent crime and the distribution of deadly drugs like Fentanyl. Dispensaries meet an essential need which cannot be fulfilled by Licensed Producers. They provide a variety of Cannabis products not offered by LP’s, allow same-day access, and foster a small, inclusive business community which cannot exist under the MMPR system. In the wake of the Organigram scandal, it has come to light that inconsistent testing standards exist for Licensed Producers; the argument that one is safer than the other is flawed. Small businesses have the right to participate in the Cannabis market, and dispensaries ensure that everyone is included in the conversation about legalization. This petition will be sent to Toronto’s OIPRD (Office of the Independent Police Review Director) and the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP; formally complaining about Project Gator, calling for more transparency about Project Claudia and all previous raids, and demanding an end to wasteful spending by the RCMP, and TPS in particular by continuing to pursue Cannabis-related offences. If you're able to, donations will help us spread the message to as many people as possible. Every new signature is a reason for the RCMP and OIPRD to take us seriously!
Petition to John Horgan
Grant Tetyana Melnychuk her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree which UNBC withheld through discrimination and abuse
Chairs of nursing schools can declare any nursing student "unsuitable" just as a matter of personal dislike for that person. The University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) waited until the end of my registered nurse training program to fail me in the last course, thereby maximizing their revenue, the bank's profit, and my student debt. This happened even thought I was one of the top nursing students. It was part of ongoing discrimination, abuse, and persecution against me by three nursing instructors and the chair of the nursing program at UNBC, who did not like the fact I am an immigrant English Second Language student and a single mother. UNBC consistently supports the chair of UNBC's School of Nursing, no matter what she and some of her faculty members do to nursing students. UNBC officials turn a deaf ear to the students' complaints unless the student can afford a lawyer. Not surprisingly, since 2011 UNBC has banned lawyers from the student appeal process. I now owe a huge student debt with no means of repaying it or of supporting myself and my minor son. According to a lawyer, I have a human rights case against UNBC. However, without legal representation, I am unable to defend my rights against UNBC and obtain my registered nurse degree. Moreover, Legal Aid and pro bono legal services do not provide help for low income people in cases such as mine. Provincial governments have privileged universities, but failed to protect students' rights and interests. Publicly the BC government deplores the increase in child poverty! Please do not ignore this family; help and make one child's life better. I am asking you to help me obtain my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from UNBC, so that I can write my registered nurse exam, receive my registered nurse license, find work, pay off my student debt, support myself and my minor son, and become a self sufficient member of society. What Martha MacLeod and some other UNBC instructors have done to some UNBC students is horrible. UNBC must be compelled to treat its students fairly. Students' rights need to be protected, and one of the best ways to do that is to allow students to have representation by a lawyer through all four stages (instructor, chair, dean, senate) of the appeal process. This assistance needs to have funds available so that low and middle income students can enjoy the same effective rights as the wealthy. Please support us and pass this petition to others. Thank you very much for your support. To know more about how UNBC has mistreated me, follow this link http://discriminationabuseofnursingstudent.blogspot.ca/
Petition to Women Deliver, Premier of British Columbia John Horgan, Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau, Justin Trudeau, Women Deliver, John Horgan
Stand Up For Women’s Rights in Canada
“Women Deliver is a leading global advocate that champions gender equality and the health and rights of girls and women” (Women Deliver, n.d.). In Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, the Women Deliver 2019 Global Conference will be held from June 3 to June 6, 2019 and “over 6,000 world leaders, influencers, advocates, academics, activists, and journalists from more than 150 countries” will attend (Women Deliver, n.d.). Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau said, “Prioritizing the health, rights, and well being of girls and women is not optional, but in fact, foundational to drive change and progress for all, and this is reflected in our new feminist foreign policy.” And “Canada is proud to host the next Women Deliver Conference as a global convener to bring us all further in advancing human rights for women” (Women Deliver, n.d.). However, the government in British Columbia/Canada deliberately ignored and has deliberately persistently failed to stop discrimination/Human Rights/Women’s Rights violations in BC/Canada. Some of the examples are: By the ongoing discrimination/harassment/abuse/fraud/persecution etc., the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) etc. took away the registered nurse job from a single mother immigrant the day before her graduation from UNBC with her registered nurse degree by deliberately denying her degree and deliberately have ruined her/her child/their family/their lives. Many other students of different race, religion, family status, marital status, place of origin etc. have suffered horrible injustice etc. at UNBC. Some Indigenous women were abused/deceived/forced to sterilization. It is also discrimination and Human Rights/Women’s Rights violations in Canada. More information about it you can find in the petition “Stop sterilizing Indigenous women without consent.” Women require to see a gynecologist without a referral. It is practiced in many countries, it helps women in many ways, as well as based on the shortage of the family physicians’ services, it would also free space for a family physician to see another patient. Request to see a gynecologist without a referral was initiated by an Ontario woman who has a chronic disease and requires to have her checks up by a gynecologist regularly and described what she experiences in that part of Canada. Help to bring awareness about those and to stop injustice/Human Rights/Women’s Rights violations in British Columbia/Canada. Sign and Share the Petition Women Deliver. (n.d.).

Petition to Gouvernement canadien / Canadian government
Canada : Protection against identity theft! Protection contre le vol d'identité!
L'absence de réglementation adéquate pour assurer la sécurité des canadiens et canadiennes face au vol d'identité laisse ceux-ci à la merci des organisations criminelles et terroristes. Le gouvernement canadien devrait prendre les mesures pour mettre en place un système national de validation de l'identité des canadiens sécurisé et pourvu d'une protection universelle. Le fait de laisser ce champ sans contrôle et trop souvent basé sur le désuet Numéro d'assurance sociale cause à tous les canadiens un risque inacceptable The lack of regulations regarding the protection of Canadians toward identity theft expose them to criminal and terrorist organization. The Canadian government must ensure the protection of Canadian implementing a national universal identity validation service combined with a universal.protection for the victims of this crime. The lack of laws leave this responsibility without control and too often will result in using the obsolete and unsafe Social Insurance number as an essential part of this which cause an unacceptable risk for every Canadian
Petition to All Canadians
A ban on plastic campaign signs for the 2019 Canadian Federal Election.
When we hear the term single-use plastic we tend to think of things like straws, plastic cutlery or shopping bags but it has become an unseen part of how we live. The vast majority of signs used in election campaigns today are made of coroplast or a similar product. It is lightweight, can be easily printed on and is relatively cheap to purchase. Unfortunately, like too many of our contemporary products, it is also made of plastic and has a shelf life of at best 6 months (or 3 elections). More typically the sign is disposed of after just one election period of about two months. This is single-use plastic. I understand that these plastic election signs can be reused or recycled but we need to get beyond that mindset. Even if something can potentially be reused or recycled that is no guarantee that it will be. The first "R" we need to embrace is Refuse. We need to stop using plastic signs. There is no need. Our federal government has even recognized the need to Refuse single-use plastic; calling for a ban on them by as early as 2021 (classic non-determinate political talk). We can do better. I'm sure we can ask them to walk the walk and call for a ban on all plastic signage in this year's federal election. It’s about doing the right thing, the right thing for our environment, and the right thing for the future generations that will be cleaning up the mess we leave them. So let's make this happen, call on Government to follow your lead. No plastic signage in the 2019 federal election.
