I have lived in Clairmont most of my life and the sudden news of changes at Equine City saddens me. My granddaughter who suffers from Tourettes plus other disabilities takes riding lessons at Equine City and the staff is wonderful with the children.
With having a child with Tourettes it’s hard to find a place that will even accept her in a program. My granddaughter looks forward to each lesson and the new things she will learn.
As friends of Equine City, our goal is to keep all animal programs up and running. Equine City has so many things to offer such as family fun days on Sundays, riding programs even for children with Tourettes, horse riding instruction for any level and great birthday parties complete with hay, wagon or sleigh and pony rides, a petting zoo, summer riding camps, field trips and bonfires for student-adult groups.
The County of Grande Prairie is now trying to take all of this away because of a permit issue which arose due to a neighbor’s complaint! Equine City has been shut down for the family fun days, the pony birthdays parties and school field trips effective immediately and all booked events have to be cancelled now because the permit they hold is apparently not satisfactory.
We feel that this is unfair and are petitioning the closing of these programs. Please help us in our fight to keep Equine City’s programs open to the public.
Thanks to all of you in advance for your support in keeping this great place open to the public.
The main political parties have failed to implement or offer any reasonable policies to protect English identity. The ultra right parties such as the bnp and national front (if they even still exist in a meaningful way) are designed only to preserve white British identity.
If Scotland, Wales and Ireland can have their own devolved government under an umbrella British parliament, then why is England not allowed it. England is the only region of the uk whose residents have no say in how they are governed.
August 19, 2009 is the 30th anniversary of Khomeini’s declaration of Jihad and also the launching of an enormous military attack on the people of Kurdistan in Iran. To protest the brutal policies of the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI), residences of Kurdistan have been invited to launch a day of public strike by several leftist parties and groups. In support of this initiative, we, the undersigned individuals, call on all lovers of freedom to support the people’s struggles in Kurdistan on this historic day.
People are encouraged to read through and sign as this is NOT a petition in favor of outright military rule, but one that supports the measures taken by Musharraf to eradicate corruption and place Pakistan on the right path to democracy. As Pakistanis, we must appreciate a man who has confronted corruption and created a system under which the voice of the people can be heard.
Pervez Musharraf has been the centre of a lot of criticism lately, and this petition is an attempt to show support for his vision and rule in Pakistan. We understand some actions by the current government in Pakistan are drastic and some may argue against them, but it is up to us to realize the ground realities and act responsibly in deciding who to support. Opposition parties are exploiting the mass public by using democracy as an excuse to regain power and destabilize a government that has achieved a lot in the last eight years. Religion is also being used by some in the media to incite the public, which has gone about its daily routine with no interest to come out on the streets. Objectivity amongst reporters on international broadcasts of Pakistani news is rare. This is an attempt to show that there is a large movement that supports the President. Outlined below are highlights of Musharraf’s achievements, there is a section on reasons for imposition of emergency rule as well.
POSITION ON OPPOSITION PARTIES
Nawaz Sharif’s incompetent government and Benazir’s corruption (wife of Mr. Zardari who is popularly known in Pakistan as 'Mr. 10%') left Pakistan in a dismal state. Thus prior to Musharraf’s debut on the stage of Pakistani politics in 1999,
* The country was almost bankrupt;
* Pakistan was on the verge of being declared a “failed” and “terrorist” nation;
* It was listed as being the second most corrupt nation in the world (the first being Nigeria)
* During the time of Benazir and Sharif, the KSE 100 index was less than 1300. Now it is over 12000.
* Atrocities such as judicial killings of opponents took place shamelessly throughout Pakistan, particularly in Karachi, for which Benazir and Sharif were both primarily responsible.
Under Musharraf’s regime since 1999, Pakistan has experienced tremendous growth and seen record improvement in its overall condition.
* From being #2 on the list of corrupt nations, Pakistan is now #138 – a remarkable improvement.
* Compared to being nearly bankrupt less than a decade ago, Pakistan now has reserves of close to $16 billion, and is still growing.
* Corruption has been virtually eliminated from the upper levels and significantly reduced in the lower levels.
* Musharraf actively confronted terrorism in Pakistan and employed several schemes to eradicate it from our country.
* Large-scale development is taking place all over Pakistan, with a significant amount of construction going on in Karachi and areas of Baluchistan. Previously, these areas were largely neglected, with Baluchistan left to the mercy of warlords for much of the history of Pakistan.
* Tax recovery is at an all time high.
* Pakistan’s media has flourished with Musharraf’s permittance and encouragement.
* Devolution of power- Musharraf brought the Nazim System and gave powers to the local representatives at the lowest level.
* Women's representation used to be 3.2%. Musharraf made a landmark decision and appointed 33% seats to be reserved for women in all three tiers of the local government and 17% in the national and provincial legislatures. (This also resulted in Pakistan being recognized as the country with the greatest progress in women’s representation within parliament in a comparison study of South Asian politics.)
* President Musharraf was awarded the White Ribbon Man of the Year Award 2006, in recognition of the tremendous support to the cause of women’s rights in Pakistan.
* Pakistan’s relations with India have also significantly improved. Previously, India refused to acknowledge the territory of Kashmir as a 'dispute'. As a result of Musharraf's diplomacy, Kashmir is today acknowledged as a disputed territory and both sides are working towards a peaceful resolution of the conflict.
These are remarkable achievements in an 8 year timeframe. This is not to say that things are perfect; much work still needs to be done. But, Pakistan, under Musharraf, has been heading towards the right direction and this momentum should continue. He has addressed the root cause of problems in the country thus building a foundation for democracy to prosper. The measures taken under this regime are an attempt to reform Pakistani society with a high emphasis on education. One cannot educate a nation overnight; it takes time and honest commitment. We cannot let corrupt politicians ruin 8 years of hard work.
India’s communists have always opposed India’s strategic embrace of the U.S.
It believes that the U.S. is a hegemonic, deeply destabilizing power and India cannot become a close ally of Washington without sacrificing or compromising its policy independence and narrowing its room for manoeuvre in world affairs.
Second, the left argues that the text of the "123 agreement" differs significantly from the statements that Singh made in Parliament, promising that it would address all of India's concerns about full civilian nuclear cooperation with the U.S. and autonomy for the Indian nuclear programme.
The left says there are specific differences between the agreement and a law passed last December in the U.S. Congress as a prelude to "123", called the Henry J Hyde Act. The act mandates annual certification by the U.S. President that India is behaving in conformity with American foreign policy objectives, and also imposes a few other conditions that India said were not acceptable to it.
According to the left, the Hyde Act will prevail over the "123" agreement and can be used arbitrarily to terminate nuclear cooperation with India.
The act, it says, falls short of guaranteeing full-scale nuclear commerce with India, which was promised when Singh and President George W Bush inked the deal in July 2005. For instance, the U.S. will not export uranium enrichment or fuel reprocessing technologies to India.
The act, argue the communists, will erode India's sovereign decision-making in respect of its nuclear programme. Since the "123 agreement" essentially derives from the Act, it must be opposed.
In addition, the left is concerned at the likely impact of "123" on India’s traditional advocacy of universal nuclear disarmament. It says that by getting "accommodated in a U.S.-led unequal nuclear order", India’s leading role in championing nuclear disarmament "as a major country of the non-aligned community" will be given "the go-by".
The left also says that it is "debatable" whether nuclear power, which would be promoted under the U.S.-India deal, is a sustainable solution to India's energy problem.
"The bulk of the left’s current opposition to the agreement derives from procedural arguments (about Singh’s assurances to Parliament), and from differences between its text and what was promised in July 2005, and again in March and August last year," says M.V. Ramana, a physicist and energy expert attached to the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Environment and Development, Bangalore told IPS.
The present position of the left parties significantly differs from its original stand on the U.S.-India nuclear deal two years ago, which emphasised its negative consequences for India's advocacy of global nuclear disarmament.
For decades, said the left parties in July 2005, India "was …committed to nuclear disarmament… The BJP-led government had begun the journey of accepting a junior partnership of the U.S. in return for a de facto recognition as a nuclear weapon-state… The current agreement marks an end to India’s nuclear disarmament policy".
Nevertheless, the communists have decided not to press for a vote on the "123 agreement" under Parliament's rules of procedure, unlike most of the non-UPA parties. A negative vote could lead to the fall of the Manmohan Singh government.
"The left is loath to topple the UPA government because it fears that that will pave the way for a return of the BJP," says Achin Vanaik, a professor of international relations and global politics at Delhi university.
There is more than two weeks, Mr. Danial Fallshow and Mrs. Violeta Ayala obtained the permission of the polisario to work in Rabouni and the refugee camps. The interested parties paid their second visit in the area. The two journalists were invited to pass their stays in the tents of a family to the camps of Aousserd. During two weeks, they carried out films on the life of the refugees.
On May 1 before midnight, the journalists informed a family member having accomodated them whom they were to leave the tents to go in another place. This information came from to the safety of Polisario, which started to seek the journalists. On May 2 with 11:00, the person in charge of the protocol of the polisario received a call of the Australian MAE, calling upon a “kidnapping of journalise”. Less than one half an hour after, Mr. Danial Fallshow and Mrs. Violeta Ayala were found with the inn of a cuban doctor, where they hid.
The Director of the Safety of the POLISARIO, Mohamed Wali Akeik, stopped Mr. Danial Fallshow and Mrs. Violeta Ayala. According to the carried out investigations, the interested parties carried out a film on slavery and racism in the refugee camps sahraouis. They described a slavery-racism ratio within the same family, divided into two according to the colour of its members. Alleged the " slaves noirs" belong " with the Master blanc".
When the film was carried out, "esclaves" asked the journalists to pay attention to their safety because the POLISARIO followed their activities.
Mr. Danial Fallshow and Mrs. Violeta Ayala then took the video-cassettes of films carried out and tried to flee the zone sahraouie. They called by telephone of the parents in Australia, announcing to them that the unknown ones kidnapped them. This information was transmitted to the Australian authorities, which invited the FP to take the necessary measures to find the missing journalists.
Lafayette has seen an alarming increase in the number of "home parties" or "lock down" parties. These parties are one of the ways minors gain access to alcohol.
Many of these parties can be particularly problematic because of the large number of drinkers involved and the large quantities of alcohol consumed.
Reports of alcohol poisoning and traffic accidents involving minors who have attended these home parties have become a regular occurence in the Lamorinda area.
The proposed Ordinance does not change any criminal laiblity laws for the possession and/or furnishing of alcoholic beverages to underage persons. Rather, a Private Party Ordinance gives the police an administrative remedy i.e. a fine rather than requiring prosecution through the criminal justice system which is expensive and time consuming for the local police department.
This type of Ordinance is a further tool to be used by law enforcement to reduce the number of private parties in our community where alcohol is consumed by minors.
Slumber Parties distributors request that President Kim Brecheen update our current Party Leads system and replace our current Coordinator with an individual better matched to the needs of the distributors.
Other universities have frequent and decent partys on a regular basis, Griffith on the other hand have none.
My name is Don Sin, and i am campaigning against this injustice!
I implore you and your friends to sign this petition to get a party system going at Griffith (Nathan) and to try and possibly hold one at the QEII staduim right next to Nathan.

The children should not be let out of school into an unattended alley way which flows into a very busy parking lot.
The alley way will pose problems in the winter months when snow and ice are in season and children can slip and fall injuring themselves.
The children not only have the potential of being abducted in an unsupervised alley way but also are being put into harms way having to walk through an occupied and busy parking lot.

BetonSports has sacked its chief executive and left him languishing in a US jail. We think this is wrong.
The company terminated his contract and removed him as a director. The company also attempted to distance itself from salacious stories that appeared in The Mail on Sunday over the weekend.
The newspaper claimed that parties held at its Costa Rican base to try and encourage high rollers to spend more cash included the provision of ladies of the night, shipped in from the US.
Demi Moore's husband Aston Kutcher was also said to be involved in parties that "catered for every perversion." Carruthers apparently used to meet and greet guests at these Caligula-inspired soirees.
But hang on. Carruthers has been arrested for executing the business plan of BetonSports - that is to say undertaking online sports betting in the US. Surely therefore his arrest is not for breaching company rules but for implementing them. We think Carruthers has therefore been made a scapegoat by the company.
In executing the stated business plan he is clearly a model employee. BetOnSports should stand by their man, reinstate him and indeed give him a pay rise. If you agree with our campaign to reinstate the BetonSports One, call Kevin Smith at BetOnSports on 00 1 314 623 2734.
Please send Kev the regards of UK-Analyst.
We will forward this petition.
Doctors and research scientists are increasingly speaking out against animal testing. All animals are different, so they feel the results from animals can't be applied to humans, and it is dangerous for human patients if we try to do so.
In 1997 Labour came to power in the UK. One of their pre-election pledges was to hold an historic investigation into the medical relevance and safety for human patients of using animal experiments.
The medical relevance of animal testing has come under more doubt since then, but they have still refused to honour the pledge.
Among the developments in that time were:
§ 83% of doctors, in an independent poll, supported the idea of an independent evaluation.
§ A 2004 paper in the British Medical Journal concluded that "the contribution of animal studies to clinical medicine requires urgent formal evaluation."
§ Scientifically evaluated cell culture tests have been discovered to be 80-85% accurate: easily more accurate than animal testing.
§ Adverse drug reactions have been estimated to be our fourth leading cause of death: killing over 10,000 people a year in the UK and costing the NHS £466 million, according to medical journal studies. All drugs contributing to this have passed tests on animals.
An Early Day Motion raised by a concerned MP requesting such an inquiry attracted the support of hundreds of MPs across the parties and was among the 1% most popular EDMs. The MP consulted with doctor's group Europeans For Medical Progress (see www.curedisease.net) who actively supported the move.

Please include name, address and phone number otherwise the goverment of canada will not recognize this petition as valid. Thanks.
Should the people of Crestline have to pay the expense of bringing jobs to Crestline by making it more inviting at our expense? The passed water bill brings only wealth to the parties that passed the bill!
An annexation should carry the expense of both planned parties Crestline and Galion. If the construction of an industrial park is going to bring the need of emergency funding, let the businesses that are involved pay the bill.

Holocaust denial only serves to make fascist parties policies more appealing to the masses.
In the UK this allows them to profane Holocaust Memorial Ceremonies with the support of the law.
We need the law changing and the political parties to change their attitude to confronting the far right.
In SriLanka, the Tamils and Sinhala lived peacefully together on the same island but as two separate kingdoms. Once the British took control of SriLanka, they dissolved both kingdoms and made both groups live together. However, once the British gave control back to the people of SriLanka, the Sinhala took political power and have continously been attempting to eliminate the Tamils through various methods. Legislatures were used to discriminate against Tamils, but not allowing the Tamil lanugage to be an official language of the nation, and by causing great devastation tot he Tamil Communitites.
Many peace talks, rallies, petitions and similar actions were carried out by the Tamils, but it was not until the Sinhalese government began to murder, rape and torture Tamils while ignoring their pleas for justice, did the Tamils take up arms in order to defend themselves. The LTTE is fighting for the liberation of Tamils, and have only been fighting for the justice they deserve and seek. Currently, the LTTE are and SriLankan government are at peace, but the President, Chandrika, is doing all she can in order to destroys the peace. She is not willing to cooperate, and is only trying to delay the peace talks by ignoring to listen to the LTTE.
LTTE, with the help of Noweigan Government have been able to form their own temporary government system in the land in which they control. The LTTE have set up Immigration offices, Judicial Offices, Police Stations, an entire government system withing a few years. They succeed alot in very little time, and have good control, and show that they have the power to be patient, resourceful, and able to form a stable government.
Because the SriLankan government is unwillingy to cooperate and negotiate with the LTTE, and because both parties are on hostile ground with a mediator, we ask that the Canadian Government, who are well known to solve problems and reach a common goal of peace, to hold the peace talks between the LTTE and Srilnakan Government here in Canada. And we ask that the Canadian Government be the mediator and assist both parties to come to a peaceful resolution.
Abortion is the greatest horror ever seen by humanity. If we care about God, humanity, or even ourselves we must work to stop it. The means are readily available and very easy. No one needs to “lift a finger”, spend a dollar, or suffer in any way to help these innocents. All that is required is for us to do, assuming that we continue to vote, is decide that we will never again vote for abortion.
The scale of the carnage certainly screams out for action, at least to those who have a conscience to hear it. Consider this: 3,025 people died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. 6 million Jews died in the Holocaust. 15 million people (troops + civilians) died in the First World War, and 50 million died in the Second World War (over six years).
Abortion, however, kills 46 million people every single year, making it the greatest slaughter of humans ever known on earth. And unlike the other horror mentioned, mass voluntary abortion is not merely historical, but, as of the time of this writing, is still heavily ongoing today. Unlike the other horrors, there are still relatively few people working to stop the legality of elective abortions.
We, as living humans, also “continue” today. This is our issue, our time, and our responsibility. We often wonder how peoples of the past stood by and did nothing while Christians were thrown to lions, slaves were traded, Jews were lethally gassed, and Rwandans were massacred. Similarly the Angels must wonder at us over this issue of abortion: they witness that we were all fetuses once, yet we would deny the humanity of fetuses, or that they deserve rights; we stand around while they are butchered in ways so cruel it would be certainly be illegal if it was done to animals.
We also have the advantage of learning from the other horrors of history; this is all the more reason why we have an urgent responsibility to stop this one. We cannot turn a blind eye and be guiltless. Nor is it easy to say we did much good with our lives if we ignore this issue.
It is a murder so horrible. The developing baby has only its mother and the Law to protect it, but neither are doing that. It has no weapons, no chance of escape, no one to appeal to for help, and no one to defend it when it is being ripped apart. It dies never having known any love.
The mothers actually bring their own babies in, voluntarily, to be killed! Therefore besides being execution of innocent people, abortion is an absolute betrayal of the sacred mother-child bond which is seen throughout Creation. It is perhaps the most evil thing a person could possibly do, yet it is perfectly legal and proudly defended in our politics today!
There is great power in the vote, and many lives were sacrificed so that we could have this right. But it is a power often misused by the common people, who seem to rarely vote according to their beliefs, and then wonder why the country is out of step with their beliefs. Even worse, many do not feel any personal responsibility for their vote, evidenced by the fact that many voters do not even vote at all (see http://www.idea.int/vt/survey/voter_turnout_pop2.cfm; eg. only 48% voter turnout in the USA).
Unfortunately those who do act to criminalize abortion have long been duped into voting for political parties which vaguely hint that they are against abortion, but which actually do nothing to stop it when they are in power. It is a situation where we are lead to feel like we are accomplishing something, but nothing good actually gets accomplished.
No more! We of conscience must make it our primary issue when we give any political support. Under no circumstances will we any more support any political party which refuses to criminalize elective abortion, or which even hesitates to do so. We will not be content with “baby steps” that actually go nowhere. We will no longer be toyed with. This is an urgent and terrible issue!
We will not abandon the voting booth; our vote and chance will not be wasted. We will not surrender, but act. We will find and support somebody else, even if we have to resort to minor political parties not normally mentioned in the news. We will, at the same time, voice our displeasure so that no one has to guess at the reason for it. Then the message will be clear and we will have made a real difference.
This is a boycott; a very powerful political tool that would stop abortion as soon as it starts in almost every nation of the world. After all, there are few nations in the world not vastly (eg. 85%) dominated by some combination of Jews, Christians, Muslims, and Buddhists. Abortion is fundamentally against all of these religions. If even a quarter of them would boycott parties which allow abortion to be legal, the political force would be so great as to stop abortion before the next election. Wherever there are people who have a heart and a conscience, there is a way to stop this horror.
But we do not refuse to vote against abortion only for the sake of the unborn. There are so many other important reasons. For one thing, do you really want people who have no regard for innocent human life ruling over you? That's what happens when you vote-in abortion-loving political parties. Imagine what other atrocities such people are capable of! Under their rule, who can be safe? There is also the issue of our eternity to consider: our Judgment before God, and the eternal record of the right or wrong we did or failed to do. Do we want to die having done nothing about this issue? It would be like living in Europe in World War II and deciding to “go along with” the Nazis and their arrest and murder of Jewish people. Would that have been something to be proud of? Are you “going along with” abortion? Is that what you want your life to be like? You don't have to be a mediocre person. You have a choice and a chance to make a difference, and be someone who has real values and acts on them.
Social change it not hard to achieve; it only needs people to take an interest. As you go through your day, and all the things you care about, and all the things on the news, ask yourself how many of them are more important and urgent than the issue of abortion. You will quickly see that society is distracted from the things that are most important.
You do not have to answer for society, but you will eventually have to answer for yourself. Abortion is an atrocity of historical proportions and historical responsibility, whether that is realized today or not. You have to decide whether you want your name recorded in eternity as someone who was part of it, someone who didn't care, or someone who stood against it.
May God the Creator richly Bless all those who sign, implement, and propagate this boycott. Furthermore, may the names signed on this petition be an eternal testament of their innocence of the blood of the unborn.
Abortion is the murder of absolutely innocent human beings for the sake of human irresponsibility and sensuality.
It is the worst holocaust ever seen on earth, in terms of numbers, in terms of the innocence of the victims, and in terms of the betrayal of kin.
Those who fight against abortion have long been suckered into voting for political parties which vaguely promise to do something but actually do nothing.
Therefore we will make it our primary issue when we cast our vote. We absolutely refuse to vote for any political party which will permit abortion to continue. Furthermore we will not throw up our hands and not vote; we will vote AGAINST abortion at every opportunity.
This is not at all futile. It is, in fact, THE way to stop abortion; the only way. At least in western nations, which have a clear Christian majority (eg. 75%), if every Christian would vote against abortion it would have to stop immediately.
Therefore their blood is on Christian hands also.
Please commit yourself to this pledge and put it into action in your life. You can be sure that political parties which don't care about the unborn, these innocent, don't have enough heart to care about you, either. You are not losing anything.
Please help stop this worst holocaust the world has ever seen. Don't be an accessory to murder. Be an accessory to mercy.
We, the people of the Butler/Nayard Street neighborhood oppose the late night parties that are recently being held at the Kent AA Club and causing nightly disturbances to us. There has been a known shooting and rowdy activity and we do not feel this is safe for our children. We want this stopped.
When young people reach the age to vote, they often register and vote one way or the other, just because their parents or peers told them how to register and how to vote. I believe that views of the different political parties should be taught in school, so that when these kids reach the age to vote they will be more knowledgeable and will know why they are voting one way or the other.
They should learn not to necessarily go along with their race, ethnic group, religion, etc, but register and vote their conscious, truly understanding the potential consequences of their "vote".
