Petition to Subcommittee on International Human Rights
Help stop Canada's child labour problem
This holiday season, you could be buying products made by child labour and you wouldn’t even know it! Every year, Canadian companies import billions of dollars worth of everyday products made by children as young as six - including fashion, fruit, coffee, and body lotion. As a mother of two, I want to know that the things that I buy for my kids and myself weren't made by other young children working in dangerous conditions. I'm frustrated that the government has been doing nothing to prevent this — but together we can change that. No child should be for sale. Right now, there’s a Parliamentary committee studying Canada's ties to child labour. They could make recommendations for legislation to call on corporations to be more transparent about how they address child labour in their supply chains - but, according to World Vision Canada, it's unlikely that the committee will recommend this unless they start hearing that everyday people care about this issue. We need to show that we care if the products that we buy put children's lives at risk. Help me call on the committee to recommend strong corporate transparency laws that will force companies to be more open about their supply chains. Please show your support for the victims of child labour by telling the Government of Canada you care - sign and share this petition. Their study ends next week, we have to act fast!
Petition to Supreme Court Appellate Division, Attorney Grievance Committee
DISBAR MICHAEL CHETKOF AND ALLYSON BURGER FOR PERJURY AND BLACKMAIL!
Hi. My name is Norman Finkelstein. Most people know me as a defender of Palestinian rights. But not every injustice is world-historic. Sometimes we have to fight for the little guy who’s being shafted. Today I am asking you to help defend a poor Guyanese immigrant who made good. Rudolph Baldeo was a shipping clerk when he enrolled in my night class.Through a Herculean exertion of personal will he became a medical doctor. In April 2016 Dr Baldeo contacted me with a horrifying story. He had fallen prey to a couple of Long Island lawyers named Michael Chetkof and Allyson Burger. They concocted this grotesque story that he was a psychopath who had committed “countless” acts of “unspeakable violence.” I sat down to read the entire Court record. I sat in the Courthouse during the trial. I was shocked. It was a transparent frame-up! Their Court testimony flagrantly contradicted their written submissions to the Court. (See www.NormanFinkelstein.com for irrefutable proof of their lies.) When I told these vulture-lawyers that I was writing an article to expose the shakedown, they threatened to “open Pandora’s Box” and destroy Dr Baldeo “Personally and Professionally.” Michael Chetkof and Allyson Burger are blackmailing Dr Baldeo to silence me. I have already filed a complaint with the Supreme Court Appellate Division, Attorney Grievance Committee. I AM ASKING YOU TO SIGN THIS PETITION IN SUPPORT OF MY COMPLAINT AGAINST CHETKOF AND BURGER. PREYING ON IMMIGRANTS IS WRONG! PERJURY IS WRONG! BLACKMAIL IS WRONG!
Petition to Justin Trudeau
Let's Bring Sun Qian Home
Ms. Sun Qian is a Canadian citizen who was arrested on February 19, 2017, in Beijing. She has been detained solely because of her belief in Falun Gong — a peaceful meditation discipline centred on the values of truth, compassion, and tolerance, which has been brutally persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party. Ms. Sun has faced torture and mistreatment in custody, and we are calling for her immediately release her and for the release of all prisoners of conscience in China. On the morning of February 19, a group of plainclothes security agents entered Ms. Sun’s home and took her from her bed in handcuffs. The officers showed no identification. They spent several hours searching her home without a warrant, while Ms. Sun was locked in a secret location. She was then transferred to the infamous cell 414 of the Beijing First Detention Center, where she remains in custody. Over the last five months, she has been locked in solitary confinement, shackled tightly with handcuffs, and pepper sprayed. Prison guards reportedly used an excessive amount of the chemical, and then covered Ms. Sun’s face to prolong the pain. After being pepper sprayed, she was not permitted to change clothes for over ten days, further extending her exposure. She was left in handcuffs for 24 hours a day for nearly two weeks, and has been prohibited from purchasing food, toiletries, or other necessities such as underwear or socks. Ms. Sun is among the hundreds of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners who have been detained in China for their spiritual beliefs. She has broken no laws, but is being imprisoned and tortured solely for the exercise of her fundamental rights and freedoms. The Chinese government does not respect our values, our principles, or our love for freedom, but they do respond when Western countries take a stand for their own principles and their own citizens, and speak out for them. We are asking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to do everything in his power to secure her safe release, and to call for the end to the persecution of Falun Gong. Our government has an obligation to defend and protect Canadian citizens, and we all have a duty to defend human dignity, freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the rule of law, whenever and wherever these values come under assault. Please sign and share this petition. Thank you very much for your support!
Petition to Everyone involved in the LGBT and whoever cares about children's safety.
Prevent the Pedosexual movement
UPDATE: This movement has now become serious and needs to be prevented now. Some people legitimately want to pass off Pedophilia as a Sexual Preference and may try to add it to the LGBT rights. This is obviously wrong and needs to be stopped before people band together and actually start a movement like this. Even if some people say this is a possible hoax, there are some people willing to actually go through with this that can appear at any time. It's best that we prepare rather than wait until it actually happens if it does.

Improve the Canadian Mental Health System
Canada’s mental health care system is grossly inadequate for those suffering from mental illness with all types of disabilities. I am just one example of many people in need that the system has failed to help due to insufficient resources. Short-term mental health facilities that can provide me with the care I need have waitlists up to two years long. Supportive housing for persons with disabilities can have up to a 7 year wait time. Sign this petition to improve Canada’s mental health care system to support those with disabilities! On Monday, December 4th, 2017, I was released from the psychiatric ward. I have been suffering from mental illness since I was ten years old. I have been suicidal – on and off – for the past little while. Since being in the hospital, I have been put on a new medication that is meant to help with the symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder. That part is fantastic news. However, I also have Cerebral Palsy – and am now struggling to find a new place to live that can adequately deal with my mental health issues and provide me with personal autonomy. I will be homeless as of Monday, December 18th, 2017. Due to my mental health issues, the current residence I am staying in is becoming concerned for my well being. On December 8th, I was notified that I can no longer stay in residence and I was withdrawn from all my winter courses. Please sign this petition if you believe that everyone deserves adequate treatment for their mental health issues, including adequate housing and treatment programs. The Canadian government should make the necessary changes to ensure help is available to everyone. Side note: I also have a gofundme open to help me save me from homelessness. You can share it and/or donate here: https://www.gofundme.com/give-the-gift-of-a-home
Petition to John Tory
Open the armouries for shelter
Toronto's shelter system is full and people are routinely turned away. The overflow, volunteer-run Out of the Cold program is similarly full. Last winter, the two 24-hour warming centres were overcrowded, sleeping people inches away from each other on mats on the floor. A serious Strep A outbreak has resulted in a loss of over 100 shelter beds. Hundreds of people are abandoned, forced to sleep outside in parks, ravines, under bridges and on sidewalks. In the past, the Mayor of Toronto requested the Minister of National Defence for use of Fort York and Moss Park armouries for emergency shelter four separate times. Each time the Mayor asked, the federal government said yes and hundreds of people were able to access safe shelter. Opening the armouries will prevent deaths.

End the Enslavement of African Migrants and Refugees
Slavery is the next thing to hell. - Harriet Tubman On November 14, 2017 CNN released the results of an investigation in Libya, revealing that Black migrants and refugees are currently being held in detention centers, rounded up to be displayed at auctions — and sold. Their worth amounting to no more than a few hundred dollars. In exchange, they are used against their will for physical labor. They are demeaned. They are raped and exploited. This is not only disturbing and painful news, it is beyond a stark reminder of how far we have yet to go when it comes to abolishing slavery. When it comes to hearing the voices of those who are currently being silenced and ignored in Libya. Put simply: the selling of African women, children, and men — of their lives and dreams — is unacceptable. We can change this. We can send a message that the eyes of the world are on Libya. That we are calling for, expecting and demanding the sale of children, men, and women to come to an end. Immediately. Thank you a thousand times in advance for signing this petition; for being a solution and taking a stand against this injustice — "the next thing to hell." And thank you for helping African migrants and refugees, trapped in Libya, to be free.

We want a Medicinal Cannabis Dispensary in South Delta
I am a Tsawwassen Resident and have lived in the South Delta community for over 45 years. I am a mother, a business owner, a home owner and an active member of our community. I recently had a cancer scare turn me towards organic cannabis oil, as well as other alternative cancer prevention treatments. Almost weekly, I drove to Vancouver to consult with a caring and knowledgeable team of people to purchase my organic cannabis oil. My last set of biopsies came back 100% clear! Hearing this news, I finally cried for the first time. I had been so scared. My doctor had given me six months to strengthen my immune system and rid my body of CNI cells (precancerous cells) before treating me with the typical procedure. I believe the organic cannabis oil protocol I used was the leading treatment to eradicate the CN1 cells. I want a safe, responsible and knowledgeable team of people to open a high quality, regulated Medicinal Cannabis Dispensary in South Delta. Unfortunately, Delta council has approved a bylaw amendment prohibiting the production, storage, research or sale of medicinal marijuana anywhere in the municipality - See more at: http://www.delta-optimist.com/news/delta-bylaw-prohibits-medical-marijuana-1.868234#sthash.r3ZbSufb.dpuf As a collective voice we have the power to make a change. If you want access to a medicinal dispensary in our community, please speak up and be heard. Help me advocate and support people who choose to use Medicinal Cannabis as a medicine/therapeutic aid. If you want the Delta Municpality to approve and support the opening of a Medicinal Cannabis Dispensary Clinic in South Delta, please sign this petition. Doctors may prescribe or patients may use medicinal cannabis to treat the following: http://www.cnn.com/2013/08/07/health/charlotte-child-medical-marijuana/ https://medicalmarijuana.ca/resource-center/alternative-medicine/ Cancer Muscle spasms caused by MSNausea caused from cancer/chemotherapyPoor appetite caused from a chronic illnessSeizure disorders Menopause Symptoms related to the menstrual cycle Autism Crohn's diseaseP.T.S.S.
