Petition to Justin Trudeau

Stop The Demand for Breathalyzer Tests in Homes, Restaurants and Bars

We are writing this petition as concerned citizens of Canada in regards to bill C-46 and the unprecedented and unethical authority it grants police to breathalyze Canadian citizens in public areas such as restaurants, bars, on private property and in their own homes. With little or no media attention to alarm citizens, police now have the totalitarian right to approach citizens in public places and private residences and demand a breathalyzer test for impairing substances without “reasonable suspicion” and without the peoples right of being “presumed innocent.” Refusing to do so can result in: fines, DUI charges, license suspensions, arrests and criminal records. Bill C-46 was passed surreptitiously by the federal regime, seemingly without notice, without party resistance, without public dialogue and without the consent of the Canadian people. Although similarly practiced in communistic countries, this new law stands far apart from historical and respectful Canadian laws and violates the human rights of Canadians by making citizens vulnerable, to be falsely targeted and accused while inciting communities to voluntarily denounce their neighbors, ex partners and other “bad” people to the police with such accusations of criminality-also a common practice vigorously supported by autocratic leaderships. This is not the Canada Canadians fought for or the Canada we want for our children. We strongly encourage all Canadians to seriously consider the implications of this legislation, its true intent and the dangerous precedence it sets for Canada and its future governing laws. Please take a moment to sign this petition to show the government of Canada that its citizens will not tolerate such violations and imminent wrongful persecutions by a dictatorial rule of law.  Thank you for your time.

Petition to The House of Commons of Canada, The Senate of Canada and The Prime Minister's Office (PMO)

Government Legislative Proposal for the Protection of Minorities in Canada

The protection of the rights of minorities is provided for under article 27 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and article 30 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. However, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Persons Belonging to National or Ethnic, Religious and Linguistic Minorities is the document which sets essential standards and offers guidance to States in adopting appropriate legislative and other measures to secure the rights of persons belonging to minorities. Minority rights, inclusion and equality play an important role in promoting social stability, justice, freedoms and peace in the world. This has been recognized at the highest level of the UN and stated in the outcome document of the 2005 World Summit of Heads of State and Government, approved by the General Assembly. The implementation of law and policy relevant to inclusion and equality, and effective strategies for social cohesion, are therefore important goals. This Petition brings together several human right and minority right experts, representatives of Governments, Non-Governmental organisations, persons belonging to minorities, and other stakeholders to examine specific thematic constitutional and Human Rights issues and to focus on concrete measures, action and recommendations aimed at protecting and securing minority rights. and the introduction of appropriate legislation and recommendation to the House of Commons of Canada, the Senate of Canada and the Prime Minister's Office (PMO).
