PROTECT THE ACCESS TO RECREATIONAL K-9 SPACES
On May 30th, 1997, we purchased a kennel with acquired rights to offer boarding and grooming services to domestic animals. Back then, we had no neighbours.
At the time, the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion had provided in their by-law a protection barrier of 528 feet (160 metres) between kennels and neighbouring houses. In 2003, a building permit was issued for a house which is now within that barrier at 428 feet (129 metres).
On August 29th, 2012, the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion has registered a request before the Superior Court to ask a judge to order us to dismantle all of our outdoor dog enclosures because by using them as part of our daily activities to let the dogs out, we are contravening to the article 188.8.131.52 of their by-law 1275 which stipulates: "all animals must be kept inside a building that was meant to house them"
By asking us to keep the dogs inside 24 hours a day, the City is forcing us to commit an animal cruelty infraction punishable under the P-42 Act witch was put in place in June 2012 by the M.A.P.A.Q, a higher government entity.
Facebook has been blocking users for just using their Accounts and claiming they are using them to fast and or using them not as they had been meant to be used.
The Electoral College was adopted when the population was not as large as it is today. I believe in the "Majority Rule". Thus removing the primary source of election of the President being majority. If the majority vote does not have a unanimous decision then proceed to the Electoral College. Doing so would ensure that every ones vote counts. Especially in states that are a majority one party.
When a state is a majority one party that party usually wins that state. Making citizens of that state that are not that party feel like their vote does not count. Removing the Electoral College would encourage more citizens to exercise their right to vote and have a larger turn out on election day. Please move forward on this issue as I am sure i'm not the only citizen that feels this way.

We came to the UK from Australia for a family holiday in July 2004. I fell in love with UK and decided I wanted to stay (many asked WHY !!)
My loving wife and children Eddie, Ben and Lucy are English, I am Australian (a Commonwealth county)
I made the mistake of not lodging a formal application to stay immediately I fell in love (but then who says I love you straight away!) although I had discussed with the UKBA my desire to stay and how to best go about this - I was born under a British and Colonies passport in Rhodesia (aka Zimbabwe). Following lengthy discussions I lodged an acceptable application in July 2006.
3 years of being stateless (unable to work and support my family, paid for and missed 3 family holidays) I was finally granted Discretionary Leave to Remain in July 2009.
I willingly give (and love) the 10-12 hours a week I give to my local community coaching youth rugby and football teams and acting as business manager for a local rugby club. My businesses export on behalf of the UK and pay £10's of £1,000's in VAT.
Learned my lesson and lodged my extension to remain for the next 3 years within specific, stipulated guidelines on the 15th June 2012.
Booked (and paid for) what will be our first holiday in years and am now fighting to get my visa ratified in time to allow me to go with my family.
They are telling me to wait 6 months before even contacting them to discuss it........?
Please help me!
Energex have plans to construct high voltage (Dual 33kv -110kv )cement poles & power lines through an area that has been classified as remnant vegetation containing endangered ecosystems.
There is an abundance of wildlife such as platypus , birds, bandicoots, koala habitat, butterflies and much more. Rare flora have been recorded in this unique regional importance ecosystem.
Energex refuse to even look at the option to place the power lines unground through this portion of sensitive Glasshouse Mountains land. They deny any accountability for tree clearing, claim no accountability for the destruction and annihilation of 1000 to 2000 + trees & shrubs! There are other viable alternatives for Energex to consider!
MOU standards dictate they must source alternate options when endangered environment is present & living!!
HELP THE FLORA AND FAUNA. NEVER HAS THIS AREA BEEN CLEARED BEFORE!

I may be only 15 but this is what I want to do, defend animals of Las Vegas and let them have a good life.
Addressing an audience of diplomats in Geneva, US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton called for the rights of gay people to be respected.
"Gay people are born into and belong to every society in the world," Mrs Clinton said.
"Being gay is not a Western invention. It is a human reality."Reacting angrily to Mrs Clinton's speech, Ugandan presidential adviser John Nagenda told the BBC: "That fellow [Mr Cameron] said the same thing. Now this woman [Clinton] is interfering.
"If the Americans think they can tell us what to do, they can go to hell."
Uganda is a staunch ally of the US, receiving military assistance to fight a local rebel group - the Lord's Resistance Army - and has sent troops to Somalia to fight the al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabab group.
Mr Nagenda said Uganda would continue to co-operate with the US on security and other issues, but added: "If they are childish enough to take away aid, we'll see what we do [in response]."
In 1984 Petros I. Tsiros passed away after making the biggest ever donation to the Church of Cyprus, a property donation believed to be worth by today’s value, of well over One Billion Euros (600 Million Cypriot Pounds), with the express written condition that the Church of Cyprus should use the profits from the sale and development of that land, for public charitable causes and every time such funds were used to announce that they originated from Petros I. Tsiros donation fund.
After thirty five or so years and hundreds of millions of proceeds from that donation, the people of Cyprus are still anxiously waiting for the first of such announcements and the handling of the donation has remained an enigma to many.

Please sign this petition if you oppose the use of fluoride in the water supply of Greater Sudbury.
A great deal of people wish to have fluoride removed from their local water supply, but also globally.

Too often people are wrongfully accused of crimes they never committed. Some police officers charge people with crimes for the mere reason to make sure they are punished for something.
If police work were to become volunteer work, the police force would have less "crooked cops" and more police officers looking only to do the right thing, and less police racial profiling.
To: Legislative Assembly of Ontario
All Ontarians have a right to affordable housing.
Whereas an unacceptable number of individuals and families are ‘precariously housed’, meaning they are in a state of uncertainty around their living environment due to low wages, high rents, high utility costs and/or substandard living conditions (Affordable Housing Action Network),
Whereas, according to Ontario Non-Profit Housing Association’s Report on Waiting List Statistics for Ontario, it is estimated that there are 142,000 individuals and families on Ontario’s subsidized housing waiting list and the number is growing,
Whereas, according to City of Toronto’s Report Card on Homelessness, the current waiting list for 2 bedroom units and larger is 10-15 years,
Whereas The Daily Food Bank reported that, in 2008, the average food bank clients used 68% of their income on rent,
Whereas there is $50 million left from a rent supplement program that municipalities have a flexibility to allocate the funds according to local needs (The Toronto Star, September 15, 2010),
Whereas there are not enough units contracted by the City to provide affordable housing to those in need,
Whereas, according to Statics Canada, this will affect Ontarians not just on an emotional but also on a physical level,
Whereas instability with regards to financial matters has a negative impact on one’s physical and mental well being and it affects everyone that is involved in these people’s lives (CBC News, May 9, 2005).
Swansea City Council is proposing to extinguish the right of way which is still in existence at the site of the former Swansea slipbridge at OystermouthRoad (and thereafter demolish the abutments on which the bridge span was supported.)
This matter has now been referred to The Welsh Assembly for a decision on 22nd June 2010. The bridge has been an important part of Swansea since its completion in 1915 and had been well used, as of need, by the public until the bridge span was removed in 2004. The Council originally stated that such removal was to be for repair and/or reinstatement with a similar span. Such action has never been taken.
The span was removed to Swansea promenade by the Council at a cost of some £308K, where it is now not able to serve its rightful purpose. A Consultation exercise by the Council costing £35K was deliberately ignored as the outcome stated that the bridge should have been put back. It is also a historic landmark in Swansea and has been a focal point for tourists visiting the area due to the wonderful views over Swansea and Mumbles. The Swansea Slip Bridge Civic Society and its supporters are challenging the right of way extinguishment order.
We want the right of way to remain and the bridge reinstated. This bridge provided a safe way to cross a very busy road and we want it reinstated at public expense.
CHILD RAPE TRIAL
According to the indictment, the 12-year-old N.C., one of the seven children of a poor family, was sold to many men in the southeastern province of Kiziltepe by two women: Turkan Temel and Emine Akyol. It is alleged that tens of men (26-28, that is revealed) raped the child time after time on village roads, empty villages, public buildings, workplaces and cars.
A deputy elementary school principal, a top official from the district head's office, a head man of the village, and a businessman are among the 28 defendants who are now standing trial for raping N.C.
The trial is about to be prescribed according to Turkish juridical laws after 7.5 years time of trial period.
Please do not let these pedophiles get away with this sickening rape abuse action, by signing this petition. Otherwise, the trial will be prescribed in a few months...
In the news:
Dear David Cameron,
Further to your election as our Prime Minister and your invitation to the British public to offer our energy, ideas and passion, we have put our names down on this petition to show our support for the Human Rights Act. We sincerely hope you will take note of this petition and understand that we have considered the Conservatives' reasons for replacing the Act with a Bill of Rights and Responsibilities. In light of all the arguments and evidence, we strongly believe that the Human Rights Act is one of the most precious and important pieces of UK legislation and we feel passionate about protecting it. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that it was instigated by the great Conservative Prime Minister, Winston Churchill.
This is not a political stance specific petition; we voted for a range of parties in the recent election, however we are appealing to you, as you negotiate our country's future, to assure us that you will not repeal this Act.
Our reasons for this are as follows:
1) Human rights are important words to us and human rights law is vital. It has evolved over many years to protect citizens from their state and to allow everybody to enjoy rights that they deserve, simply by their nature of being human. The Human Rights Act is simple and gives every person in the UK the following rights:
1) the right to life
2) freedom from torture and degrading treatment
3) freedom from slavery and forced labour
4) the right to liberty
5) the right to a fair trial
6) the right not to be punished for something that wasn't a crime when you did it
7) the right to respect for private and family life
8) freedom of thought, conscience and religion, and freedom to express your beliefs
9) freedom of expression
10) freedom of assembly and association
11) the right to marry and to start a family
12) the right not to be discriminated against in respect of these rights and freedoms
13) the right to peaceful enjoyment of your property
14) the right to an education
15) the right to participate in free elections
16) the right not to be subjected to the death penalty
There are absolutely no articles in the Act that we, as members of the public, would not want to be fully protected by. We can see no reason for taking any of these rights away.
2) The Human Rights Act has been hugely misunderstood and misinterpreted. Many of the more ‘ridiculous’ law suits brought under the name of the act have been dismissed. It does not allow criminals to get whatever they want, in fact it actually makes it a legal requirement that the public is protected from dangers to society. Just one example of the benefits of the act is its use in keeping an elderly married couple in long-term care together. Although in an ideal world this should have been avoided by common sense or compassion, the fact is that law is clearly needed to prevent unpleasant situation like this occurring. Secondly, the Act does not, as it sometimes suggested, mean that threats to our nation’s security cannot be dealt with. The Act requires courts to balance public safety against individual rights and, if necessary, a person at risk of harming our country can certainly have their liberty deprived.
3) Far from, as the Conservatives have suggested, the Human Rights Act devaluing the words ‘human rights’, the Act actually strengthens them. The Conservatives have shown a great deal of interest in foreign policy and human rights abroad, but if we do not respect human rights at home we do not set a good example. For example, Guantanamo Bay has severely damaged the reputation of the USA. The USA put a lot of pressure on in the international community to respect human rights, yet did not themselves. This has tainted the concept of human rights negatively and has given countries who abuse human rights leverage to argue against changing their abusive practice. The UK should be an excellent example to the international community of a country that has the utmost respect for human rights. Removing the words ‘human rights’ from our laws would be a terrible signal of our lack of promotion of the concept within our own borders.
4) We welcome the promotion of more responsibility within society and are happy to lend a great deal of support to making this ideal a reality. The Human Rights Act is not the place for this however. There are many pieces of law that outline out responsibilities towards each other; the Act is the place to outline the state’s responsibilities towards us. It is therefore illogical to replace the Human Rights Act with a Bill of Rights and Responsibilities.
5) The Conservatives are unhappy with judges having power to advise Parliament, as the Act has allowed. We contest the idea that judges should not have a say in politics. They are exceptionally bright, informed members of society who would have had to demonstrate nuanced understanding and careful, responsible judgement before gaining such a position of authority. They will have a niche understanding of human rights that politicians cannot have because of the breadth of their mandates, and it is not wrong that they should not be consulted for their opinions. We note that, contrary to popular understanding, the Act does not give judges power to decide laws; MPs always have the last say on the laws Parliament produces.
6) It concerns us that a piece of legislation should only be designed to protect the British. For example, the issues of migration and asylum seeking have become confused, and there is often a lack of understanding that asylum seekers, who have suffered unimaginably and may face torture or even murder if they return to the country of origin, are different to economic migrants. We do not want our country to remove the piece of law that guarantees minorities such as asylum seekers the dignity they desperately deserve.
7) The Human Rights Act has not been imposed by Europe. The European Convention of Human Rights (upon which the Human Rights Act is based) was designed by European countries after World War II and has nothing to do with the EU. The Human Rights Act therefore actually allows human rights issues to be dealt with domestically rather than going all the way to courts in Strasbourg.
The Declaration of Independence states:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
However, on January 2, 2010, after being signed into law by Governor Bev Perdue on May 19, 2009, North Carolina Session Law 2009-27 went into effect, banning smoking statewide in all bars and restaurants in North Carolina, as well as in government buildings and vehicles.
According to the bill, it is the intent of the General Assembly to protect the health of individuals in public places and places of employment and riding in State government vehicles from the risks related to secondhand smoke.
While NC SESSION LAW 2009-27 HOUSE BILL 2 is intended to protect smokers and non-smokers from the effects of secondhand smoke, this bill infringes on the personal rights and freedom of choice for business owners and their customers.
Although violation of this bill does not hold a criminal charge, the $200 per day fine for business owners that do not comply (in order to appeal to their loyal smoking clientele) will drastically hurt business profits in an already suffering economy. Customers in violation will also face a hefty fine of up to $50, which is a steep cover charge. Many smokers that are not ready to be “forced” to quit will opt to find forms of entertainment in an alternate environment, rather than supporting a discriminating non-smoking atmosphere and being made to feel like an outcast. It is very apparent that a number of the small businesses that work to make America what it is, are going to have a tough battle to even keep their doors open.
While it is completely understandable that non-smokers should have the right to gather in public locations and not be involuntarily exposed to secondhand smoke, it should also be understandable that smokers should be allowed the same right to assemble in locations clearly marked as smoker-friendly establishments.
It is critical that these decisions are allowed to be made by the business owners and customers that support them, rather than the government. It is the owner’s responsibility to serve their customers to the best of their ability. The income that they generate (or do not generate) directly affects their livelihood as well as state revenue via taxes needed to support government affairs.
Taken from Section 1 of the 14th Amendment: “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States”
NC SESSION LAW 2009-27 HOUSE BILL 2 clearly conflicts with the above reference, by not allowing business owners to cater to the clientele of their choice.
Rights of choice are often not missed until they are gone, and rights that are not frequently used may not be missed at all by those that are not using them. However, a right of choice is one of the greatest attributes of this country. The right to choose to bear arms, the right to choose to speak freely, the right to choose to assemble, and so forth, may not be used by all of us, but a loss of any of these rights would be detrimental to all of us.
The 18th Amendment abolished our right to manufacture, sale, or transport intoxicating liquors within, the importation thereof into, or the exportation thereof from the United States and all territory subject to the jurisdiction thereof for beverage purposes. We stood up for our rights then, and repealed it with the 21st Amendment. Thanks to our alliance, we now have the right to responsibly enjoy a beverage of our choice.
The elimination of the right for a business owner to operate under their own business model, and cater to the customers of their choice is being taken away with NC SESSION LAW 2009-27 HOUSE BILL 2. This is an unconstitutional act, and I ask your help in saving this right, even if it is one that you do not use.

Sarah Wright had been the education director for Mobile Symphony Orchestra for 9 years. The MSO education program has been nationally recognized for its excellence. The board of directors has fired her without giving a reason. Because of this she has no way to defend herself. She can't even say, "I didn't do that."
Beyond doing great work Sarah also set a positive example for the kids with her attitude toward her work and her community.
I'd like for any student who goes to Jennings County High School who is willing to support the right to wear piercings at school to sign.
Pioneer Valley High School cafeteria has taken away the Special Ed corner stores' food. Including, Drinks, and Cup Of Noodles.
From what I understand the cafeteria was in the black meaning it was keeping it self up with the sales they were making from students buying there food. However, now they are in the red thus, the school district would have to pay for them to keep them open. It is LAW to have a cafeteria open.
However, taking away these items from the Corner store that Special Ed run it taking needed money from those departments, either way the district will have to support a department.
Currently, visitation laws in the State of Michigan leave parenting time open ending for the non-custodial parent when it has never been used, only used once, or sporadically. ALSO-the non-custodial parent who has NEVER used visitation, still reigns over the custodial parent and children being able to move out of the state of MICHIGAN! Their permission is required! This is absurd and should be diminished when they don't see or know the children at their choosing!
See Me or Free Me Law is being petitioned on behalf of my astonishment of the State not setting a time frame where non-use or misuse would result in automatic forfeiture.
The current law requires the custodial parent to file a "Change in Parenting Time" form against the offender. I use offender the same as a criminal is labeled due to the detrimental matter at hand, a CHILD. On the other end of the millions of non-custodial "offenders" (who are allowed to abuse the right to see their child consistently), is a CHILD!
Every parent deserves a fair chance, but the allowed abuse and repeated come and go must be stopped.
America needs good citizens, quality in=quality out. Where is the protection for our children? We have to be the voice.

The economic case for polygamy.
By Tim HarfordPosted Saturday, Feb. 18, 2006, at 2:27 AM ET
After more than a decade of war between separatist rebels and the Russian army, there are not many marriageable men to go around in Chechnya. So, acting Prime Minister Ramzan Kadyrov, probably not a feminist, proposed a radical step: "Each man who can provide for four wives should do it."
Polygyny (having more than one wife, as opposed to polygamy, which is having more than one spouse) is admissible under Islamic law but not Russian law, so Kadyrov is unlikely to make much progress with his proposal. But what difference would such a law make? It's natural to assume that polygyny is bad for women, partly because most of us would rather have our spouse to ourselves, and partly because we look at a place like Saudi Arabia, where polygyny is not uncommon, and note that women aren't even allowed to drive. I'm not quite so convinced. A lot of the knee-jerk reactions against polygyny are from people who can't add up.
In a society with equal numbers of men and women, each man with four wives gives women the additional pick of three men—the poor saps whose potential wives decided they'd prefer one-quarter of a billionaire instead. In the Sahel region of Africa, half of all women live in polygynous households. The other half have a good choice of men and a lot more bargaining power.
Economist Kerwin Charles has recently studied the plight of these women. Their problem is not merely that some who would want to marry won't be able to. It's that the available men—those not in prison—suddenly have more bargaining power. Goodbye to doing the dishes and paying the rent; hello to mistresses and wham, bam, thank you ma'am. The women whose potential partners have had their ranks thinned by prison are less likely to marry, and when they do marry, are likely to marry a man less educated than they are.
Meanwhile, the remaining men, finding a surfeit of marriage partners, suddenly seem in no hurry to marry. And why would they?
Every day is a Habib Beye day! He's the saviour of the Mags back four, the most committed member of the squad (and he didn't even want to come), the new Rob Lee, and the only member of the current squad I'd consider putting on the back of my shirt.
In homage to our fantastic right back, we think we should rename our coastal town in his honour - Whitley Beye!!

Mistake 2: In December of 2003 I contacted Elizabeth Gilbertson to inform her that I was going to give notice at work and go back to school. I was terrified of these people I worked with. They felt no shame for lying. Just to cause trouble they would lie. The final straw was when an agent e-mailed me with "missing money in the subject line of the e-mail. I went to the Union and Attorney Radosovich. They both said not to worry. I was not willing to take any such chance since I was in charge of all the money DOC took in. I wanted to be sure that Katherine and Daniel would have health care.
I knew that I would not financially be able to replace health care for my family. I was assured by Elizabeth Gilbertson that the children would be eligible Katie would continue on Title 19 and the CIP and Daniel would be eligible for Badger care as well as me.
ABC's for Health and Family Services of Sheboygan also confirmed what Ms. Gilbertson had said.
I also informed Elizabeth Gilbertson in January that I would be unable to pay the cost share of $364 she said, "don't worry about it."
They did cut all of our health care. The total financial cost is above 150,000.00 I did print the e-mail as proof and showed it to the Attorney and the Union Steve Pfundtner..
The First Cause is one of a few local bands in and around the Mcleansboro area. Their practice space is located two blocks south of the intersection of highways 14 and 142 on the west side of the highway.
While this band has made efforts not to disturb residents of surrounding homes at inappropriate times, it seems that everytime they try to practice someone is calling the City Police.
While the band is not legaly obligated to stop their practice until 9:00 p.m., they have always cut their practices short anytime that there is a complaint called in.
As of late, the complaints to the local police have come in as early as 6:45 (after less than ten minutes of play time).
This band's focus is strictly on thier music, and they don't want to be a nuisance in anyone's life here in Mcleansboro or anywhere else. There is so little to do here localy for young people and when a few of them find something they enjoy they are quickly labled as disturbers of the peace.
This bands members work, go to school, have caring families and raise children. There are a lot of other "passtimes" they could get caught up in, but they have decided to be dedicated to their art.
In response to the recent public complaints, we have decided to compose this petition to ensure that the law will be on The First Cause's side until 9:00 p.m. in the future as it is today.
The office of the President of the United States is the most powerful position on Earth, and the world and the American People in general, think that the position comes from an election by the people (citizens) of the United States, but in the 2000 election the world saw how the President of the United States could be elect by a minority vote of the people. But what the people don't know is that there are more than 4,000,000 United States Citizens who are disenfranchised, not because of treason or because they are felons or ex-felons but because they live in the Territories of the United States (USVI, Guam, The Northem Marianas and Puerto Rico).
It's really ironic that today many of those citizens are at war or have relatives in Irak fighting for their (the irakis) democracy and dont have even the right to elect their commander in chief as any other American Citizen.
This petition dont ask for a change from an electoral votes system to a direct vote system, this petition ask only for a fair inclusion of the Territories and the United States Citizens who live in those territories in to the present system.
If naturalized citizens or even US Citizens who live outside of the United States can vote for their Head Of State, why US Citizens who live in the territories that are after all under the US Flag can't vote for their Head of State?
