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

Petition to Justin Trudeau

Decriminalize sex work in Canada

Dear Mr. Trudeau, As you know, Bill C-36 was introduced to Canadian legislature in December 2014, which criminalizes many activities of sex workers and their clients, including: - Communication- Purchasing sex services- Materially benefitting from sex services- Advertising sex services It was thought by the previous Conservative government that introducing these laws (akin to the Nordic/Swedish model) would effectively eliminate prostitution. However research on this model indicates the opposite. (eg. As a current sex worker, your laws do little to protect me. (eg. Here's why: - The ability to communicate safely and securely with potential and current clients is essential. Without this, I, and other sex workers, are unable to screen clients effectively, and we have to use acronyms and other language of innuendos that prevents us from clearly stating boundaries and limits. We are unable to discuss payment for services, or meeting locations. - Because clients are penalized for purchasing sex services, this means they are even less likely to provide screening information, such as a valid government ID, employment information, or social media profiles. When clients refuse to give information, we as sex workers are forced to take risks and may engage with clients who are unsafe. - Many sex workers voluntarily engage in sex work as a profession. However current laws indicate we are unable to benefit from the proceeds of sex work, therefore we are unable to claim income related to sex work. If we do claim income, it can be said we are committing a criminal act under s. 286.2(1) & (2) of the Criminal Code of Canada. - The current laws do not encourage sex workers to report violence, harassment, assault or coercion because of fear of criminal allegations. This is a human rights and a public health issue (eg.  Mr. Trudeau, you have the opportunity to revisit Bill C-36, introduce decriminalization to sex work, and improve health and society for all sex workers, and for Canadians. We the undersigned collectively ask you to repeal Bill C-36 and join other progressive nations in decriminalizing sex work in Canada.
