Website promotes little-known option to stop Canada Post delivering junk mail Michael Oliveira, THE CANADIAN PRESS Published Sunday February 10th, 2008 TORONTO - With just a few seconds of effort, anyone can easily shrink their impact on the environment by telling Canada Post to stop delivering junk mail - but only two per cent of Canadian homes have done it. Canada Post says it's because people want to get flyers and ads delivered at their door. Vancouver's Beth Ringdahl begs to differ. Ringdahl's website, www.reddotcampaign.ca, spells out a simple two-step process to block junk mail: It's as easy as filling out a downloaded form and leaving a note on your mailbox.

Petitions Depleted Uranium In The Strait Of Georgia
Contributed by Diogenes on Friday, February 08 at 12:04 (3,894 reads)
Depleted Uranium in the Strait of Georgia Or how I was hooked by “du” — a personal journey If you lived in the northern Strait of Georgia – in the area of Texada, Lasqueti, Hornby, Denman, Comox, Quadra, and Cortes Islands – in the late 1980s and early 1990s, you or your family may have witnessed or been affected by this activity. The Merchant Legal Group, lawyers for the Agent Orange class action suit at Camp Gagetown, would like to hear from you. by G. Turnbull Saturday morning, April 15, 2006, I was listening to a favourite radio station, Malaspina College radio CHLY-FM, from Nanaimo. They were interviewing Leuren Moret, a geophysicist from Berkeley CA, who had worked at US nuclear labs. She went on for 40 minutes about the horrors of depleted uranium (DU) in munitions, which releases radiation into the atmosphere and its medical effects on, for instance, the first Gulf War veterans, where it was first used in quantity. Over 500,000 out of 700,000 vets are now on disability for something called “Gulf War Syndrome,” a ‘disease’ with many symptoms identical to radiation sickness. Or the test range off Vieques, Puerto Rica, where the residents are suing the US Navy for all the cancer, etc. That test range was finally moved to Rockhampton, Australia, where birth defects are starting to show up. Part way through the interview, she said, “The US navy used to test fire these munitions in Puget Sound until the local residents complained. They then moved north across the border to Nanoose Bay and now test in Canadian waters!”

Contributed by Anonymous on Wednesday, May 30 at 11:33 (6,142 reads)
Four Loggers and a Pilot Die: Five Deaths Demand Justice Please follow this link to our "Five Deaths Demand Justice" Online Petition: http://www.petitiononline.com/cgaqw/petition.html This petition is being endorsed by the United Steelworkers Union (USW). Please visit our website [link:]www.questforjustice.ca for more information about the accident and subsequent investigations. This is the text to the Petition. To: Prime Minister of Canada To The Honourable Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada; On the 28th of February 2005, five souls were lost after the air taxi they travelled in “disappeared” minutes after departure from Campbell River, British Columbia. Two days later, the body of one of the passengers was found not ten kilometers away. The autopsy showed he had no serious injuries, but had suffered extensively from hypothermia before slowly drowning. Countless family members, friends and fellow Canadians have been permanently scarred by these fatalities. Three women and ten children are now supported by WorkSafe BC pensions, instead of by their husbands and fathers.

Petitions On Condamne Un Belge À 5 Ans De Prison Pour Avoir Exprimé Son Opinion
Contributed by Lawrence on Thursday, March 15 at 12:55 (5,778 reads)
SIGNEZ L'APPEL POUR LA LIBERATION DE BAHAR! http://www.leclea.be/petition/index.php?lg=fr Bahar Kimyongür est un citoyen belge qui, depuis une dizaine d’années, dénonce les nombreuses violations des droits de l’Homme ayant lieu en Turquie. Alors qu’il n’a commis aucun délit, ni aucun acte de violence en Belgique, en Turquie ou ailleurs, un tribunal belge l’a condamné, le 7 novembre 2006, à cinq ans de prison ferme ! Rest of the text: SIGNEZ L'APPEL POUR LA LIBERATION DE BAHAR! http://www.leclea.be/petition/index.php?lg=fr La condamnation de Bahar Kimyongür est due à l’utilisation des nouvelles lois «antiterroristes» inspirées par l’administration Bush et aux pressions exercées par le régime turc. L’Etat belge a ainsi pu mener un procès partial visant à faire passer des opposants politiques pour des criminels. Bahar Kimyongür, Musa Asoglu, Sukriye Akar et Kaya Saz purgent de lourdes peines suite à leurs condamnations dans le cadre du «procès DHKP-C», une organisation révolutionnaire turque.

Petitions Tired Of Broken Promises ? I Am
Contributed by davidc on Friday, November 17 at 12:06 (4,706 reads)
Harper stated a promise during the election campaign, (just a short ten months ago), and now has broken that promise. This one is pretty serious; it affects 1 in every 6 Canadians. This broken promise has cost Canadian investors more than $25 billion so far. Yes, I'm talking about the promise of not taxing income trusts. "A Conservative government will ... preserve income trusts by not imposing any new taxes on them," the Conservative election platform stated. It is one thing to break a promise on saying you would build a building or pave a road by just not getting aound to it. It is something else entirely to promise to preserve an investment vehicle and then completely reverse that promise.

Petitions Stop The Commercialization Of The CBC
Contributed by Ryan Scott on Tuesday, December 20 at 12:00 (7,481 reads)
The CBC is currently broadcasting a significant quantity of mainstream popular music on Radio One, such as Madonna, Elton John, and other Top 40 music, with the intention of attracting listeners with background music "at work, dentist offices, and retail outlets” (Kelly Ryan, host of Freestyle as quoted in "CBC Radio revamp aimed at offices", The Globe and Mail, 1 November 2005). In doing so, our only national public broadcaster is significantly reducing the Canadian cultural content on our airwaves, thereby diminishing its integral role in expressing and supporting our unique Canadian identity and failing to provide the high level of program content of which it is capable. The talents of many dedicated and world-class Canadian writers, composers, producers, and artists are being further replaced by commercial content that can be found on any number of mass audience radio stations. http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/stopcbcpop
