Should I Win At the Human Rights Tribunal the $$ Will Go to Charity

I have been an activist for 23 yrs and am despised by quite a few municipal politicians in Montreal (and I welcome it).Laughing

Eight years ago Montreal's mayor told me on talk radio with 30,000 listening that he would do something to help humanity. Months later his head of communications told me that the mayor had replied to my question "in spontaneity"!

In Feb I went to a council meeting and the mayor told me that he could not do as I had asked "due to a technicality". He advised that he would phone the following day. He never did. I was not holding my breath.

Government in Canada monitoring online forums



Bureaucrats monitor online forums

The next time you post an opinion in an online forum or a Facebook group message board, don't be surprised if you get a rebuttal from a federal employee.

The government is looking for ways to monitor online chatter about political issues and correct what it perceives as misinformation.

Who can petition the Standing Committee?

Please advise!

I need to petition the Access to Information Standing Committee and I am unclear who and under which conditions can do it. I have called and emailed the Committee but apparently no one knows.

I have hard proof that Foreign Affairs had made its own version law to actively filter out records and I have presented the proofs to the OIC but the OIC refuses to act. It even refuses to register my latest complaint.

I know of the noises the OIC has made recently about delays and all but there is a deeper root the these problems and that is the OIC itself. I do not think the government was less secretive in the days of John Reid - he just had the guts to act instead of lamenting. Today's OIC is just politics, smoke and mirrors.

The "f" in your tap. get HFSA OUT. Vote OUT Fluoride

World Water day is observed by millions all over the world. It marks a day of adherence by governments to make water accessible and safe. Toronto's water is far from safe, and dangerously accessible. A fluorosilicate in the name of HEXAFLUOROSILICIC ACID (HFSA) is added to Toronto's public drinking water. HFSA is an industrial waste product from the phosphate fertilizer industry that comes mainly from Florida and China. It costs taxpayers millions a year to add, operate, and treat its side effects, including dental fluorosis. Dental Fluorosis is caused by excessive fluoride intake, consumed easily through food and beverages, tap water, and dental products. Dental Fluorosis costs significantly more to treat than the cavities it presumes to prevent.

Canada's Dirty Little Secret

From my website:

Canada is pretty much 'recognized as a beacon of 'Human Rights &  Democracy.  It's been touted as the country that 'successfully' embraces multiculturalism like none other. It's known as the 'Land Of The Strong And Free'.   And like most Canadians, I grew up proudly believing it was, with all my heart and soul.
