Petition to Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission
Canadians Are Being SCAMMED - Tell the CRTC We Demand Better Cellphone Service!
CANADIANS ARE BEING SCAMMED! Here in Canada we pay extremely high prices for our cellphones and cable in comparison to countries like Australia, United Kingdom and United States of America. Recently a meme has been circulating showing a direct comparison between Australian provider Vodafone and our own Rogers Communications. Vodafone Australia is currently offering on their site (as of January 30, 2019) 150GB as a promotion for $80 (regularly 80GB for this price) while Canadians are forced to pay the same price for a fraction of the service - the Rogers plan only offers 4GB of data (regularly 1GB) for $80. This is unethical and not okay. It's time we stand up for our hard earned dollars and demand limitations be put in place to stop the wallet gouging of hard working Canadians. We must force our telecommunications companies to provide Canadians better service for the astronomically high price they're forced to pay for what is a necessity to function in our high-tech society in 2019. Please act now and sign your name below to show the CRTC (Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission) that we've had ENOUGH and demand a change to our current telecommunications laws and regulations to implement a limit on price and an immediate increase in service provided for both existing and new customers. Once you've signed please take the time to share with your friends and family as this affects us all and together we can make a big difference and be heard! Thank you!

Petition to Australian Government, NSW Government, Victorian Government, Fair Work Ombudsmen
Fair pay for Ski and Snowboard Instructors
It’s it a fair expectation to turn up to work and be paid for your time? For to long Ski and Snowboard Instructors in Australia have been taken advantage off. Instructors are expected to turn up at their designated start time with no guarantee of receiving work or fair compensation. Ski Resorts take advantage of Instructors making them wait for lessons without paying them. The Alpine Resorts Award allows employers to make staff wait with no compensation for this time. A loop hole in the award allows them to give the staff a later lesson, this loophole allows for staff to be then paid for only 2 hours while they were required by the employer to be on site for more then double that time. This needs to change and a fair solution needs to be implemented. I call for the Fair Work Ombudsmen aswell as both the state and federal Australian Governments to put a stop to this. Lets band together to effect a change in the Australian ski and snowboard industry.
Petition to Province of BC
Your back country access is being seriously threatened right now (BC Peace River Region)
any donations received will be used to: 1) hire legal council to advise, explore and litigate our case against the provincial government 2)hire a marketing and PR firm to help us get the message out. Any remaining donations will be donated to not for profit caribou habitat organizations. Our organizing committee, in part consists of: Aaron Mathias - co-owner of Corlanes Sporting goods Dane Smith - Manager of Trailblazn Power Derek Clark - Manager of Hyper Toys Kathleen Connolly - Dawson Creek & District Chamber of Commerce Feel free to swing by the locations or call if you have any questions. We take this very seriously. The following information involves you and almost everyone you know. Please read, sign, and share . We can't let this go through because our way of life in Northern BC is at risk. Caribou Closures for the BC South Peace So about two weeks ago I was given some information. Very legitimate. I was asked to give opinion on the impact these closures would have on my livelihood and lifestyle. Also, friends and family who enjoy backcountry sledding, camping, riverboating, hunting with horses, backpacking, fishing, ATVs, etc. So, this closure, not to be confused with the BC caribou closure, will completely close all backcountry recreation opportunities for everyone and is being promoted by the Federal Liberal Government. These folks are packing a pretty big stick and are proposing a complete shutdown of the area south of Williston lake, west to Mackenzie and south to the bottom end of the Narrow Way. So, no public access to these areas for any use other than caribou mitigation. So, if you ride any of these areas, Carbon Creek, Silver Sands, Calazon, Beaver Creek, Powder King, Mackenzie, Hasler, Burnt, Sukunka, Bull Moose, Wolverine, Core Lodge, Upper Bulley, Red Deer, Narrow Way, Kakwa, these areas will all be closed. Not just high elevation, medium and low elevation winter ranges as well. There will be no hunting of any sort for any species in the closed areas. All of the hiking trails around Tumbler Ridge that are in the caribou closure will be closed and no river boats on the Murray or Wapiti rivers (portions in BC). Closures for the operating coal mines between Tumbler Ridge and Chetwynd are being discussed as well as is the closure of one sawmill in Chetwynd. Trappers, outfitters, and other backcountry tenures will also be heavily affected. Not sure about the status of the Powder King ski hill. So, for myself, family, and friends, this will completely change our livelihood and lifestyle. We have been enjoying the wilderness south of tumbler Ridge since the mid 1970’s for myself and my wife and ever since then with our family. Two years ago, my son and I both had limited entry mountain goat tags in m-u 7-21. We took my dad along who is in his mid seventies and my daughter and son-in-law showed up with their son. So, 4 generations were out enjoying the mountains, camping and watching the grizzlies eat blueberries. If we are not allowed to do things like that any more, I am not sure if I will know who l am. Mike Mulvahill WE DEMAND that all negotiations halt immediately and the Provincial government negotiation teams and all government agencies: !) Consult openly with ALL users, stakeholders, businesses, and local government 2) Immediately begin economic and socio economic impact studies on the North East region 3) Provide base line data on populations and relevant science based studies to support closures and recovery plans.
Petition to Doug Ford, Andrea Horwath, NDP party, Conservative party
Stop Doug Ford's Cuts to OSAP
As some of you may know Doug Ford is slashing the grace period of OSAP. The government's decision to charge interest right away, to do away with the grace period, is completely appalling. New graduates need time to get on their feet. It's clear the government see students as a source of income, when in fact students are the future of our province. This petition is to make sure that the government knows what is important and that they are really "for the people".#WeAreTheStudents

End NSF charges in Canada
Dear sirs, For millions of Canadians living below the poverty line, bills and expenses tend to devour most or all of our income. Getting by from paycheque to paycheque, the slightest expense over the line can seriously endanger and impair our finances. The reason for this constant dread and fearfulness? Non-Sufficient Funds charges. Every day, thousands of Canadians check their account balances and find "$45 NSF" fees on returned transactions. Ranging from $40-$48, these fees swiftly pile up. The problem is that these fees act as a tax on the impoverished. In addition to having an unpaid bill, the incredibly high bank fees - far from acting as a deterrent - end up worsening the problem. I am calling on PM Trudeau and the party leaders running for the position of Prime Minister this fall to abolish or cap the NSF charge as well as other bank fees, and end the disproportionate costs imposed on poor Canadians.
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/

Tax the 1%
If you are like every other regular human being on earth, going to work, paying your taxes, taking care of your family, you may be faced with this question: If I’m paying my taxes why is not everyone paying their taxes? What is the purpose of tax loopholes? Taxes are an opportunity for all of us to share into one pool for our community locally, federally and globally in order to improve everyone’s day-to-day lives. In the developed nations of the world the governments have passed laws that enable the very, very wealthy - the 1% of our population - to never be compelled to pay even a small share of their vast income. In fact, these laws enable them to stash their money in tax havens around the world with impunity. Many people admire them and wish to be them. This very desire prevents real fairness to prevail for all. These laws must be changed to reflect the truth that all human beings deserve to live in dignity, as it is stated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Article 25), adopted by the United Nations in December 1948 . The world’s 26 richest people now own more wealth than the bottom half of the world’s population - 3.8 billion people (Source: Oxfam). This growing divide between the wealthy and the poor threatens us all. The wealthy must pay their share in order for justice to prevail. Please sign this petition to change the laws that allow the super wealthy to evade taxes. Their tax dollars will ease the enormous economic burden to pay for all that enables our communities to flourish instead of just survive.
Petition to Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau
Let’s use our publicly-owned Bank of Canada to its full potential as per the Act of 1938
One of the most important legal cases in Canadian history is slowly inching its way towards trial. Launched in 2011 by the Toronto-based Committee on Monetary and Economic Reform (COMER), the lawsuit would require the publicly-owned Bank of Canada (BoC) to return to its pre-1974 mandate and practice of lending interest-free money to federal, provincial, and municipal governments for infrastructure and healthcare spending. Here's what the BoC case is all about...it clearly explains in point 18 of the "Business and Powers of the Bank": The Bank may (j) make loans to the Government of Canada or the government of any province, but such loans outstanding at any one time shall not, in the case of the Government of Canada, exceed one-third of the estimated revenue of the Government of Canada for its fiscal year, and shall not, in the case of a provincial government, exceed one-fourth of that government’s estimated revenue for its fiscal year, and such loans shall be repaid before the end of the first quarter after the end of the fiscal year of the government that has contracted the loan; See "Business and Powers of the Bank" in link below http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/B-2/FullText.html Voici ce qu'est le dossier de la Banque du Canada; expliqué clairement au point 18 dans le lien plus bas. Voir section intitulée « Opérations de la banque » : La Banque peut j) consentir des prêts au gouvernement du Canada ou d’une province, à condition que, d’une part, le montant non remboursé des prêts ne dépasse, à aucun moment, une certaine fraction des recettes estimatives du gouvernement en cause pour l’exercice en cours — un tiers dans le cas du Canada, un quart dans celui d’une province — et que, d’autre part, les prêts soient remboursés avant la fin du premier trimestre de l’exercice suivant; Voir « Opérations de la banque » dans le lien suivant : http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/fra/lois/B-2/TexteComplet.html When asked after the October procedural hearing why Canadians should care about the case, Galati quickly responded: “Because they’re paying $30 or $40 billion a year in useless interest. Since ‘74, more than a trillion to fraudsters, that’s why they should care.” (COMER says the figures are closer to $60 billion per year, and $2 trillion since 1974.) The end result has turned our citizens into debt-slaves, this has lead us all into neo-liberal policies and the all too familiar term “austerity”, read on to understand the end-game unless we wake-up soon! Neo-liberal policies and its austerity measures can only work if a nation is indebted to private interests. The issuance of interest-free loans by the publicaly-owned BoC as was the case in Canada from 1938 & 1974 solved this problem, no debt to private interests therefore no need for these public crushing policies. Neo-liberalism is a tool for private interests to grab state owned assets (on the cheap) which results into further impoverishment of the citizens of that country..., it is a scam in slow motion, pure and simple. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuMntvVwwWM In essence, the “money-gods” of this world want monopolies and that is the end result of capitalism. IF YOU HAVE EVER PLAYED THE GAME “MONOPOLY”, THEN YOU KNOW THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE WINNER. It is a form of feudalism when pushed to the end. They use governments to create barriers to entry where they see competition and push for freedom once monopolies are achieved. The fact that we are imposed “austerity” and in turn theft of our collective sovereignty should outrage us all, our governments no longer answer to us the people of this country. Here's some proof that our governments no longer answer to the people of Western countries, I can’t stand the lies. https://renegadeinc.com/21st-century-plague/ For more details on neo-liberalism, please see the following link http://www.corpwatch.org/article.php?id=376 http://comer.org/ For those interested, here’s the official petition launched by Elizabeth May of the Green Party of Canada that is (in my opinion) being deliberately muddied by our government. https://petitions.parl.gc.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-337 Information about this case is available in the following link.
