Ottawa, ON K1A 0A6 June 26, 2017 Dear Honourable Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Recently the Canadian government were presented with a difficult moral dilemma.

Your agonizingly difficult decision was NO with an explanation, ‘we do not cater to terrorist demands’. A Canadian citizen then

Dear York University Board of Governors, You will recall the March 15, 2017 letter I sent to you and President Shoukri. I now request your attention to the outstanding matter between Paul James and York University and an immediate audience with you as the board of governors.

Dear Anne Marie Owens, I trust you recognize the damage you and your news outlet have caused my life, those closest to me and by association, many other Canadians. I "begged you" two years ago in a 15 page email to remove the defamatory, libellous, targeted and ridiculed article - devoid of transparency of evidence, yet, smothered with impropriety - which your organization disseminated on a national scale as a consequence of the patently unreasonable collusion of York Univers
“The truth is that Canada - the ninth richest country in the world - is so wealthy that it manages to mask the reality of poverty, social exclusion, discrimination, the erosion of employment quality, its adverse mental health outcomes, and youth suicides....Adding social sciences evidence we now have accumulated indisputable evidence that social injustice is killing people on a grand scale." - Former Minister of Health and Welfare: Monique Begin 2010 Have you seen the televis
Photo: pet360.com “The Consequence of Stigma on Substance Dependent People” Four years ago, my sister as a reflection of her kind nature, gave a home to an abused miniature dachshund from Ohio. Three years of appalling mistreatment made the poor little soul a confused insecure bundle of aggression. Untrusting, confused with sad eyes. Today, Uncle Ernie, named after our great uncle, is a calm, assured, kind, and happy family dog. The transition is a total reflection of my sist
