The right to see a gynaecologist without a referral in Ontario
I have found myself betrayed by the healthcare system in Ontario. I find it ridiculous that optometrists and dentists don't require referrals, but a specialist which every single woman should see at least once in her life requires such permission. How can we as a society be advocating for women's rights when we are not taking action to improve them in the basics of healthcare? Every woman should have the right to seek care without the hassle of having to seek approval, referrals and explaining themselves on the importance of our health. We may be 50% of the population, but we carry 100% of the future. The least we can do is give us and the generations to come the proper and most accessible care. For years I have been seeing doctors only to finally be diagnosed with the chronic illness of endometriosis. I suffer from severe pain about 5-10 days every month. As part of my treatment, I needed to see a gynaecologist. They arranged for me a mediocre doctor who was not a specialist in my circumstances and who was only able to see 5 months at the earliest. I needed a change however I did not want to risk waiting another 5 months for a new doctor and losing my spot with the one scheduled. I had to go back and forth seeking referrals, suggesting different doctors and was disappointed to find myself more concentrated on running around trying to get help rather than the actual treatment. Please sign this petition to support my letter to my MPP proposing to take action on improving our healthcare for women and their overall rights. I want my voice to be heard, but this issue is bigger than me. The Provincial Parliment must see this is more than a young girl with a complaint; this is a demand for change.
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 Bank Gouging and Abuse
Feeling gouged by your bank? You have a right to – while businesses in most sectors across Canada were suffering, Canada’s big 6 banks gouged out record annual profits of almost $35 billion in 2015 (which works out to almost $4 million in profit every hour, 5% higher than in 2014, and double their profits in 2010). The big banks also paid their CEOs about $10 million each in 2015, and gave them bonuses that totalled more than $10 million (51% higher than in 2008). In 2016, Canada’s big 6 banks continued to gouge you to hike their profits to more than $37 billion (6% higher than in 2015) – in part by firing thousands of people, cutting services, and hiking fees and credit card interest rates. And their profits in 2017 are headed even higher -- they have already made $20.6 billion in just 6 months. Canada’s big banks make the highest percentage profits of any comparable banks in the industrialized world while doing far too little to support job-creating businesses and community development across Canada. A recent CBC-TV news investigation detailed how TD Bank is pushing its employees to sell you products you don't need, and that you can't afford. In a recent report, the federal government points to all these problems -- including the fact that Canada's big banks control more than 90% of the banking market in the country, which makes them even more powerful and unaccountable to customers. But still the federal government continues to fail to require the banks serve everyone well at fair prices, and to require responsible lending and investing. The federal government even gave the banks a record $114 billion bailout in 2008-2009 (most of it by having CMHC purchase mortgages from the banks), and the federal government will likely bail out the banks again if they have any financial difficulties. The federal government is reviewing the banking law right now – please sign this petition calling on Prime Minister Trudeau and other federal party leaders to make key changes to require Canada’s big banks serve everyone fairly and well at fair prices, and to lend and invest in sustainable, responsible job-creating businesses and support community development. Your time to be heard and counted is now! See details about gouging and abuse by Canada's big banks in the following recent news stories: CBC.ca (March 16, 2017) Consumer advocates have low expectations for probe into Canada's 5 big banks Democracy Watch (March 16, 2017) - Will Liberals make key changes to stop gouging and abuse of 30 million bank consumers or continue protecting overpaid big bank executives? CBC (March 6, 2017) - Bank employees say their jobs depend on upselling customers products that can put them into debt Financial Post (March 2, 2017) - Big 6 bank profits top $10.5 billion for first quarter of 2017 CBC (March 1. 2017) - A pretty greedy time as profits soar for Canadian banks CBC (June 13, 2016) - Canada's major banks hiking fees while pulling in big profits And see details about the federal Finance Department's public consultation on Canada's financial sector in its Report for Public Consultation on Canada's Financial Sector
Petition to Mayor's Office, City of Toronto
Mayor John Tory needs to ride his bike to work for a week!
So far this year, 3 cyclists and 17 pedestrians have been killed by cars in Toronto. Among the dead cyclists are a grandmother, a father, and a young athlete with a promising future. They should all still be with us now. Because of poor infrastructure, bad design, and insufficient planning, thousands of cyclists face real, life threatening danger on Toronto's streets everyday. And, as densification of our city increases and car ownership decreases, cycling is becoming an increasingly common transportation choice for our city's families. Despite this, Mayor Tory only recently said that he thought it is "unusual" for parents in Toronto not to have a car. It is hard for decision makers to understand the dangers cyclists face if they do not live these dangers themselves. The city is changing, and our Mayor's perspective of life in the city must change with it. Riding his bike to work for a week will give Mayor Tory a glimpse of the dangers thousands of cyclists face in Toronto everyday. Together, we can convince him to do it. This is a matter of life or death, literally.

A smart plan for legalization in Canada that hits all of the governments criteria
With recent light of the Legalization of Cannabis in Canada (and the setbacks) i feel we have a moral obligation as one of the first countries to legalize this substance properly as we will be setting an example for generations and other Countries to follow for decades. My hope is that this (idea) for a plan gets the attention of our Government because i feel it is a sensible and logical way to hit all of the Governments criteria for the upcoming legalization. I believe these goals can be achieved by doing the following: 1. Allowing and making it easier for Canadians to grow their own cannabis freely on their property to "crackdown" on the blackmarket, this will also in turn allow people with a professional level of knowledge on a more recreational, craft or specific product sort of basis to have their niche in what will be the regulated legal market. The other side of this is that by allowing people to grow it freely it shuts down two other areas of the black market involving it being sold to people underage and people being exploited because of their dependency on cannabis without easy access to it 2. Look into research on the idea of what would happen if we grew Cannabis in the wild naturally in an ecosystem as the idea of intaking the raw product through means of juicing it has proven very beneficial health wise without the psychoactive effects, in the same sort of idea like how pollen affects people (in theory) the process of having it in the air pollen wise may be beneficial to the eco system 3. Have a program where people are paid subsidies to grow cannabis for the government off their property and provide it to the medical sector for research and the application in medicine i.e Pharmacudicals
Petition to Justin Trudeau
Stop illegal border crossing in Canada
We are calling on the government to stop the illegal border crossings and we say no to illegal immigration. For the first time, Illegal border crossers are outpacing conventional refugees, as in the first three months of 2018 over 5,052 asylum seekers were intercepted by the RCMP. This is in comparison to 4,475 people who filed refugee claims through conventional channels such as airports and official border stations. If this activity continues not only does it undermine our integrity, it threatens Canadians' safety, economic well-being and will overwhelm our social programs, specifically healthcare and affordable housing to a degree not seen before. This is fairly problematic for every person who applies legally to become a refugee as Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board can only process about 1000 to 2,000 cases per month. Meaning that it is simply impossible to process applicants in any timely manner.

Justice for Patrick Brown
To our fathers, brothers and sons, We stand by you! Nowadays, a woman can accuse a man of pretty much anything and without evidence, he is then automatically presumed guilty as charged by society; Just like the case of Patrick Brown and the sexual misconduct allegations. What happened to Patrick Brown is wrong; A hard working, humble, kind, successful MAN who dedicated his entire life to be where he is, who has always worked tirelessly to help the people of Simcoe county and Ontario in general; Had his entire career and life destroyed in a couple of hours because of two anonymous sexual misconduct accusers who went to the media instead of the police and who went to the media ten years after the alleged incidents but only five months before elections and decided to remain anonymous. He was convicted without a trial. Patrick Brown was advised to take a leave of absence until allegations are dealt with....how does one deal with allegations that are not reported to the police and strictly reported to the media? How does one "deal" with allegations that are not a criminal matter and that have no way to actually "deal" with them? What exactly does "deal" look like? What happened to Patrick Brown can happen to any man; this is now about every MAN; and to you women out there, this can happen to your father, your brother, your son or your husband. These trendy continuous sexual allegations (that aren't dealt with through the court system) are putting actual victims of sexual assault in danger; Actual victims/survivors are NOT going to be taken seriously anymore.... Many men have had their lives destroyed because of false sexual allegations; many have had to pay for lawsuits, many have had their freedoms restricted due to false sexual allegations.....or even worse many have been denied bail, jailed .....awaiting trial! Because when you are a man, you are guilty until proven innocent. but IT IS TIME FOR CHANGE because men have rights too. We will stand with Patrick Brown. We will stand for men's rights under the name of Patrick Brown. We will make sure that false sexual allegations are seriously punished because of what happened to Patrick Brown. We will bring justice to MEN again because of Patrick Brown. Thank you, #justiceforpatrickbrown #istandwithpatrickbrown #J4PB #EQUALRIGHTS UPDATE: what do we want? we want Patrick Brown reinstated!
