Petition to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

End the narcissistic targeted abuse of Canadians by government!

Dear Prime Minster Trudeau, It is becoming increasingly clear that narcissistic abuse tactics are being employed by many government agencies and funded organizations.  Indeed the RCMP has become so toxic that RCMP commissioner Bob Paulson and Safety Minster Ralf Goodale have resorted to these tactics to silence and revictimise its own officers. One female officer has already spent $150,000 on legal expenses only to have the state wage an economic war of attrition in an attempt to deny her a voice or justice. This to a background of criminal abuse that is protected and encouraged at all levels of government. This was never a civil case! Where are the criminal charges against those involved? The RCMP and CSIS has built an abuse network based on narcissistic tactics that they have renamed as "disruption tactics"! This criminal abuse network supplies training, electronic harassment weapons, IT support in the form of CPIC (2,200 gaslighting victims) and has been caught framing marginalized people in terror plots. This is psychological abuse and as such the criminal code of Canada calls this torture (269.1).  The family courts system and The Children's Aid Society have also targeted children and families with isolation, slander, invalidation, gaslighting and extortion. All these child abductions done to the background of extreme death rates in the children within the care system. A refusal to report the number of rapes or why upto 50% of the kids died (Ontario) or under reporting deaths by a factor of three (Alberta).   Let me remind you that parental alienation is child abuse! This was never for the safety of the children or the protection of families.  First Nations have suffered this abuse for longer than any other group. They have endured all the abuse mentioned above and more. They have suffered decades of invalidation in the cases of an estimated 4000 missing women and 10,000 men. Presumably abducted and murdered.  This criminal abuse is only effective when it is not visible, or understood by the public. But we are becoming aware now thanks to this damaging game being institutionalized in our basic services. The victims are numerous and the pattern is unmistakable! We are many! We are being targeted for years with no legal protection! The press refuse to write our stories! The authorities invalidate us and direct more abuse our way for speaking up! The abusers are always protected at the expense of the victim who is blamed, shamed and silenced.  We are calling an end to this abuse network and demand that none of these crimes be dismissed or ignored any longer! We demand that the CPIC gaslighting and slander comments are removed and officers investigated! We demand to know how many of the 2,200 CPIC gaslighting victims committed suicide as a result! We demand the immediate return of all children seized by these organizations! We demand a full independent investigation into how many abductions, rapes, tortures, murders and robberies have been done using "disruption tactics"! We demand an immediate end to all disruption activity! We demand a return to law and criminal charges for those who supported this network or helped cover up these crimes.  This sadistic game is over! We will no longer pay our narcissistic supply tax to capricious corrupt officials! The lies, isolation, invalidation, reality warping, flip the script, gaslighting, cognitive dissonance, intimidation, frustration and confusion tactics will not be an acceptable answer. End this narcissistic abuse network operating out of your government now!

Petition to Justin Trudeau, Carolyn Bennett, Kathleen Wynne, Minister David Zimmer, Jane Philpott

Call to Action: Justin Trudeau face the current realities of Indigenous Youth Suicides.

The suicide epidemic that First Nations Communities face is reflective of the violence that the Canadian Government inflicts through policy and inaction and racist practices. The voters and citizens of this country demand that immediate action be taken to support these communities through this crisis with resources, support, sensitivity, and any other tools that may be necessary. The time to address this is now! Protecting our children must be a priority and it needs an appropriate response that includes respect and a willingness to listen.  This is a Mental health crisis and a genocide that is being perpetrated through inaction and harmful policies and is not reflective of the Truth and Reconciliation Act that this Government promised to implement. Canada's history of violence against Indigenous people is well documented and apologies are not enough.  We submit that this Government has a duty to uphold their promises to the First Nations population and make Truth and Reconciliation a priority through action and not a theory. --------- Please support and share this letter with your networks and forward to the members of Parliment listed.  This petition will be delivered to: Prime Minister of Canada - Justin Trudeau Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs - The Honourable Carolyn Bennett Minister of Indigenous Services - Jane Philpott Minister David Zimmer Premier of Ontario - Kathleen Wynne Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness - Ralph Goodale Minister of Health Ontario - Dr. Eric Hoskins  Dear Prime Minister Trudeau, Carolyn Bennett, Premier Kathleen Wynne, your local MPP, etc) I am writing this letter in regards to the suicide crisis that is currently affecting our First Nations youth and their communities across Canada. This situation is appalling and I am absolutely shocked that our elected officials are not taking this matter seriously and that we continue to lose young people at such alarming rates. At last check, this past week the number of youth suicides was 27, however, those numbers have since grown. Those are 27 lost lives too many! I am unsure as to why this has not been deemed a priority by yourself and your colleagues. Can you please explain to me what your plan of action is? What is currently being done to address this epidemic by your office? Why is a strategic meeting been scheduled in September when it is obvious that this is an emergency now! Young people are dying and it is not only a loss of that person’s life but also has a huge impact on families, communities, and this country.  Dr. Cornelia Wieman was quoted as saying “between 2014-2015 1 billion dollars had been spent on healthcare and of those billion dollars, 41% went to Pharma and a meager 1.5% went to mental health.” This is not acceptable and I for my part will not forget how this situation is handled when it comes time for elections. I would like to think that your office would feel a moral, legal and ethical obligation to these communities but so far, I am hugely disappointed. It is no secret that there is a lot of money behind Canada 150 celebrations and yet First Nations youth continue to live in third world conditions.  These First Nations youth deserve your support, compassion and a sense of obligation from you and all other forms of government. I look forward to hearing some answers from you. Suicide is genocide; inaction and disregarding this emergency is a contribution to that genocide. Yours Truly,

Petition to Kentville Town Council

Give the new bridge in Kentville a more appropriate Mi'kmaq name

The Town of Kentville is in the process of building a new bridge across the river in town. According to the sign which went up recently, the name of this bridge is to be the Cornwallis Bridge. We do not think it is appropriate to continue naming landmarks after Edward Cornwallis, and in the current spirit of reconciliation we feel a more appropriate name should be given to the new bridge. The Mi'kmaq called the river Jijuktu'kwejk or Chijekwtook, meaning Narrow River. I would love to see the bridge named this; there are so few indigenous place names in the local area (and already so many named after individuals like Cornwallis).  Unlike requesting a name change for an established landmark, like a river or street, or requesting the removal of a statue, this request to name a new feature - yet to be constructed - should be easily achieved. Surely it makes more sense to name it in honour of the Mi'kmaq people whose land this is rather than for a man who oppressed those people. This is a very current issue, with the protests at the Cornwallis statue in Halifax, the discussion of the MacDonald name currently used for many high schools in Ontario, and further afield the issues with Confederate monuments in the USA. Choosing a First Nations name for this bridge would let Kentville take the lead in acknowledging the Mi'kmaw nation and be a wonderful step forward. What better landmark to use for this than a bridge, something that joins two sides?
