The Supreme Court of Canada recently ruled (April 15) that opening and closing council meetings in Saguenay Quebec with a Catholic prayer violated Quebec's provincial human rights act.
Edmonton has a worldwide reputation over 35 years of opening City Council meetings with a prayer or chant or musical presentation from one of the 13 + various faith traditions found in this community of 1.3 million residents.
This long-standing inclusive practice strengthens our community by building an environment to foster respect and understanding for Councillors, City Staff and meeting attendees. Ideas for the future include inviting rep. from the atheist/agnostic community to offer a reflection, moments of silence after any/all contributions to create a positive atmosphere of clarity, gratitude and mindfulness . ( for the liberties and freedoms we enjoy as Canadians)
It is my understanding that the purpose of The Charter of Rights and Freedoms is Tolerance, Freedom and Equality. It applies to corporations as well as individuals.
The Charter states that "a law will be found to restrict expression if it has the effect of frustrating the pursuit of truth, participation in the community, or individual self fulfillment and human flourishing" ( Limiting the Right )
The Charter ( 27 ) "This charter shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with the Preservation and enhancement of the multicultural heritage of Canada."
According to the Edmonton Journal "City lawyers want Edmonton councillors to temporarily cancel the prayers that start their meetings for fear the practice is unconstitutional". The April 28 agenda calls for a motion to not have a prayer.
"The ultimate victory will not be the one with the most powerful weapons. It will be the one with the most powerful spiritual vision."--Rabbi Simon Jacobson
History has shown that the true strength of the Jewish people lies in its relationship with G-D and with each other. As Rabbi Nosson Scherman has noted, "It is axiomatic in Jewish thought that the ultimate physical survival of Israel depends on its spiritual standing."
In light of this reality, we ask you to sign this petition seeking Divine protection in the quest for peace in Israel and the world.
If we can obtain at least 1,000 signatures, we can offer this petition at a special prayer service to be announced on this site.
We are asking for Divine protection and blessing.
Everyday, there is a new account of invassion of peoples spiritual chats, manipulations, transmission of dreams and mind control, mysterious scars on their bodies and `forced' actions, through mind control.
Human beings are invaded and driven like avartar to achieve selfish, and sometimes evil, objectives of spiritualists and authority figures. Spiritual torture is now rampant and spiritual terrorism has become the order of the day.
Lives are terminated, bodies are afflicted with diseases that defy cure and evade diagnoses, destinies are subverted and wasted, and professionals are seeing their careers wasted and hopes dashed.
Bread winners of families are turned into wretched and poverty stricten humans, dislodged and displaced from their loved ones and isolated, families are dislocated. Confused, most victims are wrongly diagnosed with mental ill-health and sometimes abandoned in hospitals, wasting away to, eventually, die.
Numerous accounts of UFO's are being reported more than ever and infrastructures are sometimes zapped and destroyed.
But Human Rights is provided for in the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights - why was there no mention of human spiritual rights?
I was a regular Cafe Nero Customer until today.
They have now twice restricted my ability to view web pages which their Cloud Web Provider blocks for containing Alternative Spiritual Beliefs.
So there is no surprises that they deliberately restrict any viewpoint that they consider as differing from their own.

We claim we want to increase positive contributions made by those in our world, but yet we don't protest when our media presents 99 percent of its broadcasts and papers filled with war, crime, and violence.
While it is true that these things are occurring and we need to know about them to encourage change toward peace, why can't we hold our media accountable for showing a more realistic view of us. I request you sign this petition to encourage all media to be required, through their license in journalism, to dedicate at least fifty percent of their contents to positive actions and events in the world. The reasons your support of this petition is crucial follow.
One. It has been shown that media heavily influences our behavior. If its contents continue to accentuate the negative, our young people will learn to value violence. However, if we encourage the media to dedicate at least half of its contents to positive events and actions, we will promote higher quality values of peace and kindness.
Two. It has been scientifically proven that optimism improves health. If we hear more positive news everyday, it will improve individual health, increase mood, and inspire us to act in kindness and peace. Thus, improving the health of our society by requiring media to report positive news daily.
Some other reasons include:
One. Showing positive role models.
Two. Increasing the number and willingness of volunteers.
Three. Maintaining and improving the life and services of charitable organizations who help improve quality of life for those who need assistance.
Four. Promoting peaceful conflict resolutions (right now all the media seem to be showing is crime and use of guns for this. We need to encourage the showing of positive conflict resolution through medium.)
Five. Increasing self-respect and respect for others.
In conclusion, I request that you sign this petition in support of requiring the media, through requirements of journalism licensing, to dedicate at least fifty percent of its coverage to positive news and events. In doing this, we will promote peace, values, respect, altruism, volunteerism, health, and a more prosperous world.
Thank you for taking the time to read and consider this petition.
Thank you for your support to require the media to accentuate the positive for the improvement of our world.
The vision of The Global Peace Centre http://www.peacecentre.org is to contribute towards the creation of a Planetary Peace Culture looking to life and common humanism as the core values for a sustainable society. During the last few decades, a radical change has occurred in humanity's awareness of itself. In simple terms, we have, over the millennia, translated ourselves from "oneness to aloneness".
The truth is that all life on the planet is connected. This newly acquired state of aloneness and alienation causes considerable discomfort. GCFP attempts to understand what we have become and illuminates our future potential. Humankind has reached a state of development in which old modes of thinking and behaving threaten to destroy our planet. This is becoming patently obvious to people of all political and religious persuasions. We are living through a global crisis in which only a profound revolution can save us from total self-destruction. Those of us who are dedicated to the preservation of life must play a prominent part in this revolution, which calls for a substantial change in our manner of thinking.
On social, environmental and health fronts we are confronting a critical transition. We are facing the results of an epistemology which focuses on material and rational values, human supremacy and competition for domination. Will this transition be into chaos and destruction or will it be into the new paradigm based on spiritual, ecological connectedness and cooperation.
The Global Peace Centre aims to contribute towards this next great global step - The Final Frontier, acknowledging the common ground of humanity and its connectedness with all life.
The Global Peace Centre is a global alliance of individuals and organizations dedicated to building a world of peace in which we all live in freedom, harmony, cooperation and co-prosperity.
We have come together as concerned Global citizens realizing that with increasing Global population requiring more and more resources with tremendous inequality of distribution our planet is reaching breaking point in terms of economic and ecological crises.
This is having profound social and cultural effects. We require urgent ecological, social, economic and political solutions to problems which affect billions of people if we are to survive sustainably.
The Global Peace Centre calls for spiritual, ecological and holistic world views, derived from perceptions of connectedness and interdependence. The essence of a sustainable future lies in the quality of the individual and their positive contribution to society. Optimization of health and lifestyle for every person is the key to our future. Will you be our Ambassador for Peace and sign our petition for the Ten Commandments for Peace, that we may widely promulgate this message of hope and peace to all of humanity?
