1. Elizabeth May NDP Leadership

We, The New Democratic Party, symbolized frequently by Tommy Douglas and medicare, are a party of social and environmental compassion with a platform that consists of progressive issues such as LGBT rights, international peace and environmental stewardship.

I feel that, ever since The Late & Great Jack Laytons' passing, the leadership of NDP have steered us towards the dangerous road of the typical norms. We have always been the party of universal betterment for the individual. But in recent times we have become the "so called" establishment elite and we need to redirect our movement. The NDP, in this time of need, would benefit from the openness, and free thinking of Madame May. I believe NDP has lost its direction and maybe May is the Way.

2. LGBT Equality

It has come to my attention that the Judicial Branch is exceeding their authority when it comes to the fourteenth Amendment.

The fourteenth Amendment clearly states that all people born or naturalized in the United States are due to equal protection under the law and no state shall deny any person this right. However, the Judicial Branch seems to think that LGBT citizens who were born or naturalized in the United States should not be protected under equally under the law as stated in the fourteenth Amendment.

3. End Government Seizure of Private Property

There has been much dispute lately about the federal government's seizure of private property, particularly out west. The government has tried to justify it through eminent domain. Eminent Domain is when the government seizes private property for public use, but provides just compensation to the owner.

This is allowed under the 5th Amendment to the Constitution, which states,"... nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation." The federal government has been seizing property from citizens whose families have owned the land for generations, but the land isn't for public use. The most prominent example of this would be the Bundy family's farm in Nevada.

The Bureau of Land Management attempted to seize land and cattle from the Bundy family, claiming that they were trying to protect the habitat of the Desert Tortoise. That is not public use of property, therefore, it is against the Constitution. In addition to that, the BLM euthanized dozens of Desert Tortoises not long prior to this, because they claimed to be unable to afford the care of them. If they couldn't afford that, than how could they afford to spend a million dollars rounding up Cliven Bundy's cattle? The BLM also attempts to justify the land and cattle seizures by saying that Mr. Bundy hadn't been paying grazing fees for 20 years. Why should citizens have to pay money to the government in order for their cattle to graze on their own property?

The federal government has been doing this for too long. They own 28% of the total land in the United States, and even more than that in some states. 84% of Nevada is now owned by the federal government, as well as 69% of Alaska, and nearly as much of most other western states. It is wrong for the federal government to have taken this land, and it is time for the American people to stand up and say so.

4. Respect for the Presidency! Congress should take action on Merrick Garland's nomination, NOW!

Article Two of the United States Constitution establishes the executive branch of the federal government, which carries out and enforces federal laws. It includes the President, the Vice President, the Cabinet, executive departments, independent agencies, and other boards, commissions, and committees. Section 2 Clause 2 under this article gives the president power to appoint judges.

The Supreme Court is the only federal judicial body established by the Constitution itself, specifically in Article III, which begins: “The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish."

The US Congress determined that there should be nine justices on the US Supreme Court and the sitting President, Barack Obama, has appointed a ninth justice to the court, Merrick Garland, after the death of Justice Scalia. The Congress has not adequately considered this appointment and instead intends to wait for a new President. This does not adhere to the spirit of the law nor respect the letter of the law.

6. END corruption in the U.S. government

George w bush, Dick Cheney, Hillary clinton, Bill clinton, Barrack Obama, Loretta lynch, James Comey, and others involved are many.

For the most part we all know of the crimes committed by these people and their associates who are guilty of helping to cover up their crimes to ensure they are not brought to justice. Crimes against humanity, perjury, acts of terrorism, use of political power for personal gain, misuse of classified material, theft, defrauding america, benghazi, the list goes on.

These are all issues that have been in the public eye for years now, and has become apparent that the laws of this country don't apply to them.

7. G.A.T.E -- T&T says NO to the recommendations of the task force for the (GATE) programme

As citizens of Trinidad and Tibago we strongly disagree with the recommendations that included students paying 1/3 of tuition fees for Undergraduates and 100% for Post Graduate in the report by the task force on the Government Assistance for Tuition Expenses (GATE) programme.

This report was handed over to Education Minister Anthony Garcia last week.

GATE was implemented under late prime minister Patrick Manning in 2004, with a vision to emancipate citizens by funding free tertiary education in the country and a great vision it is.

Trinidad and Tobago is on the world map with many intellectuals who would not have reached where they are had it not been for the wise use of our taxpayers money to invest in the education.

Many of out people are now competitive worldwide and this can only do great things for us as a nation.

Many poor families who were hindered by financial constraints have been able to see their children off to great starts, instead of turning to crime as a means of survival.

We accepted fuel raise, we accepted vat on zero-rated items but we say no to the interference with a level playing field for educating our citizens.

8. Fix Freshwater Creek Flooding impact in Kallangur

On 1 May 2015 the area surrounding the new railway project in Murrumba Downs/Kallangur in the Moreton Bay Regional Council catchment was inundated with water. There were at least 10 homes that we know of that were affected at varying levels with up to 1m of water flowing through these homes. The Moreton Bay Rail Link appears to be causing this flooding in Kallangur, particularly to homes in Allison Drive, Marler Court and Brays Road, along with Anzac Avenue and the Bruce Highway, around Freshwater Creek due to the earthen embankments built along the railway corridor.

These areas were NOT flood zones until the railway project began.. The government organized an independent inquiry last year as homes in Deception Bay, Mango Hill, Rothwell were also affected, however excluded Kallangur from the enquiry, even though they were informed of the flood issue prior to investigation.

We need as many signatures as we can to encourage the politicians/ministers and other relevant parties to take notice and implement action.. Photos are available for those seeking further details.

9. Stop Concessions at Wayfarers State Park

This summer Montana State parks will be implementing a commercial beach side concession that will be renting non-motorized water craft as well as selling sundries.

This concession is exclusive in nature and creates a monopoly in Wayfarers state park.

This will negativity impact local businesses in and around Bigfork that for years have been providing these services by way of delivery to the park.

This concession will take up beach space once enjoyed by park visitors, and will intrude on the natural setting of the park. Commercializing this public space contradicts the mission of Montana state parks of "preserving and protecting our state's natural beauty".

This particular concession will be setting a precedent for other concessions to be permitted in the park. Especially services that are already being offered locally outside the park.

Please help support our small community of Bigfork.

10. Complete Dukhedin Play Park NOW! (or before Christmas 2016)


Since 2015, Dukhedin Play Park was conceived by the wonderful Mrs. Rajwantee Bullock, the current Councillor of Avocat/San Francique North, to be a haven for children within the area of Ramroopsingh Trace, San Francique, where the local children can play and have fun.

Since the creation of Ramroopsingh Trace, children are brought up by parents to go out into the world as better and responsible people, but they never had a place within their vicinity for their children to play and enjoy themselves. Mrs. Bullock foresaw this problem and proposed a play park named after one of our own residents, Mr. Dukhedin, to the Siparia Regional Corporation. This proposal was approved and later implemented on the designated area within Ramroopsingh Trace. Hope was being brought to the local children.

Unfortunately, after a new government was elected, the funds to build the play park was halted in early 2016 and new funds for councillors to build projects would not be known until September later this year, where the annual Government Budget will be passed in Parliament. Sadly, it is not guaranteed that new funds will be provided to complete the Dukhedin Play Park for the residents of Ramroopsingh Trace, San Francique. This in effect will most likely result in the project being completely abandoned. Not only will this affect the children living within the area, but generations to come.

Why would a play park matter to me? It is simply because:
a) My mother is the Councillor of Avocat/San Francique North.
b) I live in Ramroopsingh Trace, San Francique my entire life.
c) She cares for the children of this trace as much as she cares of her own, including myself.
d) Having a play park was a vicinity that I wish I'd had a long time ago when I was young.

With that said, it is imperative that the Government of Trinidad and Tobago and the Siparia Regional Corporation take note of this project as well as other projects proposed and being created by our local councillors.

These projects can not and will not remain incomplete for the sake of their respective communities and constituencies, otherwise the entire country will not fully develop and push forward. If the people of Trinidad and Tobago take heed of these news, then they should act immediately and sign this petition to help complete the play park before Christmas 2016.

This petition should encourage officials of both our Government and the Siparia Regional Corpoartion to bring funds to the councillor projects being out on hold, including the Dukhedin Play Park. By then, the play park should be completed before Christmas 2016 so the children will play and have a parties during the festive season and and all will be right within the area.

Mrs. Bullock will not likely remain councillor before the end of this year despite filing for local government election. Hence, it must be known that her efforts to bring this play park to life for our children and future generations must not and will not go in vain.

11. ER, acute care services to be suspended at Preeceville hospital, starting June 1

Sunrise agreed on June 2015 when placed on temporary bypass that they would bring Preeceville Hospital back up to standing once another Dr was secured by Jan 2016.

A full year has passed and nothing, Sunrise are making 6 more Long term care beds and four are for palliative care and IV therapy. Those are our 10 acute beds. And no ER services.
Our Hospital & long term care facility is newly built with over a million dollars worth of funds raised to ensure the communities surrounding Preeceville would be cared for.

12. We support the First Amendment of the Constitution

The Constitution in the First Amendment gives every American the right to petition the federal government for redress of grievances.

13. From a Girl learning all about Life with a Ball at her Feet

Symbolism has never found more takers…As one of the world’s most influential people, Modi, has become the Prime Minister of one of the world’s most powerful, developing countries, India, the feminists have been waiting with bated breath, to know how successful have they been in their struggle. While I don't doubt the nobility in ruling party’s intent, I am forced to question… How has it been addressing the vulgar gender bias in fields which have been historically dominated by the XY?

I am a victim of that very gender bias albeit in a different arena.

At an age when most teenagers dream of leading the 'in' life, I spend my time thinking about how to get sponsorship to play football. Yes, football for me is synonymous with life. Correction… Football for me IS life!

Why is it that it’s the 21st century and we boast of parity, but it’s the same old stale wine in a brand new bottle; all on paper, all in words, but none visible to the naked eye? All aware in our hearts, both, the baby and the brutal.

Why are male sportsmen always looked up to? There are Messi and Ronaldo who are XY, but no one thinks of Carli Lloyd or Alex Morgan, who are XX, when looking up to football idols?

14. Equal rights for all Greek citizens

Οι Έλληνες ζητούν ισότητα ενώπιον του νόμου. Το Μ.Ε.Σ.Α. ("Μαζι Εναντια Στην Αδικια", βλ. ιστοσελιδα) συντάσσεται και ως εκ τούτου απαιτεί μαζί τους, να αρθεί η ασυλία των μελών της κυβέρνησης και κατ’ επέκταση να καταργηθεί το άρθρο 86 του Συντάγματος.

According to art. 1 of the Greek constitution, all governmental powers come from the people and exist because of the people. Art. 4 of the Greek constitution specifically states that all Greeks have the same rights, and art 120 states that the enforcement of the Greek constitution is at the end in the hands of the people.

Nonetheless, art 86 of the Greek constitution states that the members of the Greek government, if and when they commit a crime, can only be accused after a petition of at least 30 parliament members (i.e. members of the Greek government). This is not the case for the average Greek (i.e. you are not only to be accused after a petition from 30 of your family members).

Thus, the existence of art. 86 is a monstrosity and also is in direct violation of the aforementioned articles.

15. No to the North Carolina zero tolerance speeding law

North Carolina will start this new zero tolerance rule on speeding stating that the myth of 5 miles per hour over the speed limit is a joke and now they are going to show everybody by issuing speeding tickets based on zero tolerance. One mile over the speed limit means you will get a ticket.

To drive exactly 55 or 40 or 35 exactly is impossible in fact Google autonomous cars can't even do this. In fact not even your cruise control can do this.

So it all points to the fact that North Carolina has decided we need more money so let's beat up our residents and all tourism.

Well let me just say that we vacation several times a year, often in North Carolina. We spend a lot of time gem hunting and gold prospecting in North Carolina, but with this new "speeding" law we will boycott North Carolina. The state is looking for money from drivers for no good reason.

16. Stop Academies

Since the introduction of "Academies" into the education system more and more have not only failed Ofsted but also failed children, parents and teaching staff.
Evidence suggest that "Academies" cost councils more than they would otherwise spent on council run school budgets. This puts additional strain on otherwise already cash strapped councils.

Evidence also suggests that "Academies" that are having good results do so at the cost of pupils who do not promise to achieve the required exam results being "off loaded" into either alternative education provisions or other schools. This is common practise and once again the governments slogans of "every child is an individual" or indeed "every child matters" are blatantly and cynically ignored.

Parents have a choice and this choice is taken away.

17. Implement legislation that limits excessive campaign contributions

The wealthy 1% influence election decisions through their immense wealth. The presence of colossal contributions funneled through Super PACs, social welfare organizations, politically active nonprofit organizations and unions violate numerous articles of the U.S. Constitution that proclaim officials must be elected by the people.

The renowned saying "We the People" is being contorted into "We the Corporations".

Political and economic favors are traded between wealthy benefactors and political officials.

The wealthy 1% use the candidates as puppets while they pull the strings. If we continue down this path our once strong nation will be reduced to one that enacts legislation to solely benefits big business.

18. Upgrade the Fota Road (R624) Immediately

The people of the Great Island demand that the Fota Road, the only road access to the Island, be upgraded and maintained to a safe standard.

19. No to the resignation of Mayor Tim Kee

The mayor simply was cautioning women for their safety and the media is defaming an innocent man.

He was not happy about the death of the victim, neither did he say she caused her own death.

The media has done it again with their derogatory headlines.

20. Repeal Bill 10

Due to Alberta's government passing Bill 10 in only a few hours on March 10, 2015 (without any public consultation about the wording), Alberta's parents now legally have no say in what clubs and activities are present in their school - no exceptions.

Also, principles of said schools have no authority in this matter either - it all rests in the hands of students. It also prevents parents from being notified about the clubs and activities their children are participating in - alienating them from each other.

This goes against a Supreme Court decision (Loyola vs. Quebec), Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and Article 18(4) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

21. NO to Roosh V and rape in Singapore

Fort Canning, Singapore is currently listed as one of the locations for an 'International Meet Up Day' organised by pro-rape advocate Daryush Valizadeh, also known as Roosh V. He is behind a blog called Return of Kings, which is catered towards "heterosexual, masculine men" who believe "men should be masculine and women should be feminine".

According to the blog, some principal tenets include men opting out of monogamy and reproduction if there are no incentives to engage in them. Another is of the belief that a woman's value significantly depends on her fertility and beauty, while that of a man's depends on his resources, intellect, and character.

Valizadeh wrote an article in 2015 calling for rape to be legalized on private property as a means to “defeat rape culture”. He wrote, "I propose that we make the violent taking of a woman not punishable by law when done off public grounds. If rape becomes legal under my proposal, a girl will protect her body in the same manner that she protects her purse and smartphone".

The group has been said to be hostile towards men of colour despite the website claiming that the meeting “is for straight men of all races”. The Roosh V following has also been known to be “racist and xenophobic”.

The meet up is to take place this Saturday (February 6) in a private location so as to avoid cancellation. The meet up location has not been moved as of yet and is still at Fort Canning Park underneath the big arch. URL is provided here: http://www.returnofkings.com/78021/full-city-listing-and-meeting-points-for-international-meetup-day#prettyPhoto/56/

URL for the AsiaOne article about the event: http://news.asiaone.com/news/singapore/international-group-pushing-legalize-rape-may-meet-singapore

[Edit] The February 6 meet up has been cancelled. However, as this meet up was part of an even larger global 'International Meet Up Day', the group may try something similar again in the future. It must be made known that it is not just the 'Meet Up' that we are against but rather the ideals that Daryush Valizadeh and his followers represent. This lets it be known that such attitudes will not be welcome here and hence, action must be taken against their group.

22. Hendersonville Curb-side Recycling

Many Hendersonville residents would like to have recyclable items picked up at their curb.

23. Save Lightburn

A leaked health board paper has revealed that this important community facility has once again been earmarked for closure due to budget cuts in the NHS.

24. Protect Gull Lake MB from Gravel pit development

-There is currently an area located in the north west corner of Gull lake less than a mile from the water on Arnold Street (south of #12) where a gravel pit is being prepared to be developed, owned by a private company.

- This area is approx 40feet below the surface of Gull lake.

- Gull Lake water is retained by a sensitive clay bottom. The lake purges out through the underlying sentiment though this NW corner as per Hay report completed in the 1990's.
Gull Lake report http://mspace.lib.umanitoba.ca/handle/1993/22939

- Digging in this particular area could potentially be very hazardous to the Gull Lake purge rate if not potentially drain the lake completely.

- Gull Lake current purge rate is 6 years. This means that after a period 6 years every drop of water in Gull Lake is brand new (including evaporation). If this clay bottom is disrupted, think how quickly this rate could be affected?

25. My Care

I want to introduce you all to a thought – simple idea born out of musing over the state of our society and our situation, and how we can improve our state as we delve deeper in the 21st century and leave something to look forward to for the coming generations.

How would you like to have funds available to you that won't cost you a penny? The funds I am talking about will be dedicated for the sole purpose of social welfare and the betterment of our society. These funds will come out of the total amount you pay as income taxes to the government. Imagine, a small amount of your taxes being available to you for making the world a better place. You can either donate the funds to any charity of your choice or even establish your own charitable organization to improve any aspect of your society, which you deem to be in need of development or relief.

My aim is to bring about a social change – a change that brings a paradigm shift in our outlook. It is quite apparent, from the present state that our society is in, that there is a crucial need to give care to our ever apathetic society.
This is an introductory attempt to start creating those necessary changes and with this I am introducing My Care to you! I want you to start reading the book with some idea as to what I wish to communicate to everyone and what you should expect. The book is available on Amazon and the link is on the website- www.mycarethebook.com.

Petition Guide:

This campaign has always meant to be a global one and it is the wish of the author to ask the residents of each country who would like to support the My Care campaign in their own country to supply the addresses (in case of UK being; The House of Commons) of their own country and send it to my email.

The information provided will be used to create a petition similar to that of the UK. This way every participating country can have a petition connected to this link for voting.

The global petition is for the rest of residents living in countries where the implementation of My Care cannot take place at present, but want to show their support for the cause!

Please send your addressee information to: Mycarethebook@gmail.com

26. Keep Jobs at HMRC Porthmadog & North Wales

Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has announced plans to close all tax offices in the UK & replace them with 13 regional centres. Just one centre will remain in Wales-in Cardiff. Staff in North Wales are expected to move to Liverpool.

We call on HMRC & the UK Government to re-consider their plans & keep a regional centre in the North whilst maintaining the Welsh-language call centre in Porthmadog.

..........................

Mae HMRC wedi cyhoeddi eu bwriad i gau holl swyddfeydd treth y DU a chreu 13 o ganolfannau rhanbarthol. Dim ond un canolfan fydd yng Nghymru-yng Nghaerdydd. Mae disgwyl i staff y Gogledd symud i Lerpwl i weithio.

Galwn ar HMRC a Llywodraeth y Deyrnas Unedig i ail-ystyried a chadw canolfan rhanbarthol yn y Gogledd a chynnal y gwasanaeth Cymraeg ym Mhorthmadog.

27. Help Our Veterans First

As a country we are doing amazing things in helping refugees from Syria, the Middle East, and almost any country that seeks aid regarding this matter. However we disregard our Veterans the help they need when they get home. As a country we do not even know how many homeless Veterans there actually are.

We are not helping them but rather putting 10.5 million towards Syrian refugees without looking at the domestic issue of our Veteran affairs first. These men and women gave their lives for country, our freedom, to protect our way of life. Then when they come home, we treat them like their expendable pawns in a chess game.

Human lives cannot be valued, before we look to help other countries, we should look to our own. We should support our Veterans heavily as prized members of our society, understanding without a doubt that they are the heroes of the world.

28. Let's Talk Teachers & Government

Strike action, also called labor strike, labor strike, on strike, greve (of French: grève), or simply strike, is a work stoppage caused by the mass refusal of employees to work. A strike usually takes place in response to employee grievances. The union representing Ontario's elementary school teachers will meet with the premier on Friday morning, the day after it announced its members will stop supervising all extra-curricular activities in schools starting next week.

We are slowly tearing and ripping the economy apart. One of the reasons is strikes. The point of this petition is not to point fingers. But to show you the student's and parents of students who want the Government as well as the Teachers to give in and work together. I am a student Devin, I am not fully educated on the things that are going on in our union but from what I hear it could have consequences. SCHOOL'S SHOULD BE A COMMUNITY, A FAMILY. WE HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER. What makes a family? What makes a community? Not only learning but experiencing things together. Plays, Trips, Dances, etc. Now they are getting rid of those.

Research from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the National Research Council (U.S.) shows that participation in extracurricular activities, sports and clubs are key characteristics for evaluating student engagement and students’ sense of belonging at school. This research also shows that both engagement and belonging have a significant impact on students’ overall success.

According to the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association, “extracurricular activities can . . . foster lifelong appreciation and interests, preparing a young person for life in ways that go beyond academic success.”

Students, Parents, ANYBODY. Help the students of schools in the DSBN, and anywhere prove to the teachers and the union that they need to talk.

29. Save the Meyers' Farm

Frank Meyers, 85, a Canadian farmer, is trying to protect his land from the government, who are attempting to demolish his buildings.

The land was granted to Captain John Meyers by King George III 215 years ago and has been in the family ever since.

The government harassed his descendant until he signed away his inheritance under duress.

30. If You Lead - Lead With Principle

With inputs from persons on six continents and from several cultures Billione.org was formed for the purpose of advocating the promotion of principles in leadership.

The will of many people is that leaders in government, politics, business, and religion make a commitment to act in accord with simple globally recognized principles of conduct in the administering of their affairs. With a sincere effort to do this, many of the issues facing humanity can be lessened or mitigated.

The petition is simple and the requests are actionable.

Results will be distributed through various media channels as numbers of supporters reach thresholds of accomplishment. Our initial goal is 100,000 signatures.
