Formal Request for Permission to Social Protest Through Starvation at the Gates of Parliament Hill
Dear Pertrina Bonia,
I am formally requesting official permission that I, Paul J James, may conduct a Social Protest through physical starvation at the gates of Parliament Hill on Wellington Street, Ottawa, beginning August 31, 2019 indefinitely, until the matter is fully resolved, as outlined below.
Please note, the hunger strike protest itself will begin August 28, 2019 at a location away from Parliament Hill.
The three fundamental macro-societal reasons for the social protest are to confirm:
Canada as a distinguished democratic society who proudly promotes itself around the world as a nation that "respects the human rights of all its citizens" must now "walk the talk". Justice served in the James vs York University discrimination claim will impact ALL Canadian citizens profoundly and positively. Failure to do so will merely establish Canada as a gutless, hypocritical nation, so insecure we cannot see what our real strengths can be and where the real opportunities lie to be respected internationally at an unprecedented level.
The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms cannot pick and choose when the Charter is applied. To date section 15 with regard to: "Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability" has not been applied even though substance use disorders are categorized unequivocally as mental disabilities. This imprudence by the political and judicial systems to not enforce the rule of law through the good faith application of the Canadian charter with regard to mental disability in the form of substance disabilities has cost millions of Canadians their lives and unimaginable human suffering for far, far too long.
To establish and give reason why ALL Canadian citizens can and should have faith in the Canadian judicial system and process.
