I have started this petition in the hopes of taking it to the 2007 Canadian Idol auditions. My goal is to prove to the executive producers, John Brunton, and Barbara Bowlby that each Canadian deserves the opportunity to pursue his or her dream of singing, and age should not be an issue.
In April of 2006 I attended the Canadian Idol auditions in Kitchener Ontario. I went there to ask the producers to consider producing another Idol competition.
I thought that if Mr.Brunton and Ms.Bowlby were sceptical of how successful an " Open Idol" would be, they could simply take advantage of the millions of viewers that tune into the show every week.
My suggestion was to put two 1-800 numbers up during the show and ask Canada to vote on it, at the final Canadian Idol show this year, announce what Canada had decided!
I was not treated very well. I was yelled at in front on hundreds of competitors and parents. I was told the producers were too busy to talk to people like me. I was grabbed at, and humiliated.

I think Canadian Idol has just scratched the surface of what kind of undiscovered talent it out there.
Talent is talent.
Discrimination can takes many forms... even wrinkles
Thank you for your support!

We are Albemarle county residents opposed to the county adding high density developement while the area infrastructure will not support it.
Increasing the area density will result in a higher population and a greater tax burden on our current county residents.
The area's current infrastructure cannot support the almost 5,000 units and the traffic problems they will bring.
As a result, and most importantly, an increase such as the one being proposed for Biscuit Run will have a grave impact on the quality of life of all Albemarle County residents.

Mr. Hathhorn has been with St. Ann
School for 27 years.
We would like to present this petition in support of him getting a contract for the next year.
The time has come for you to act now and make a forceful statement of your support to the historic transformation in U.S. - India relations. We are witnessing a shifting of paradigms, and you can play a critical role at this juncture when the entire world is watching the outcome of the civil nuclear agreement between the U.S. and India.
You can act and make a difference. A difference that will be remembered by generations to come. Or you can choose to do nothing.
President Bush's visit to India has brought the story of India to the fore of global attention like never before, and opponents of enlightened U.S. - Indian interests are out in force and trying to change the opinions of individual Congressmen and Senators. We cannot afford to let them scuttle the visionary path of U.S. - India relations. Those who oppose the civil nuclear deal oppose the rise and development of India.
We urge you to act. We urge you to act by signing the following petition to U.S. Congress.
The U.S. and India have resolved to progress on civil nuclear power cooperation between the two countries on March 2, 2006, during President Bush's visit to India. This agreement requires certain laws to be changed and amended in the U.S. Congress, for which the Bush administration will soon approach the Congress. The Congress has to give its approval to the deal. By signing this petition you will convey to the Congress that you strongly support this deal.
USINPAC has been working in support of civil nuclear cooperation since its beginning stages, including meeting with key Members of Congress in both the House and Senate, and also senior officials from India, in support of this cooperation. By signing this petition you will add significantly to U.S. - India relations.

I'm sure many of you watched the recent taping of the Oprah Winfrey show
where her guest was Tommy Hilfiger. On the show, she asked him if the
statements about race he was accused of saying were true.
Statements like "...If I'd known African-Americans, Hispanics, Jewish
and Asians would buy my clothes, I would not have made them so nice. I
wish these people would *NOT* buy my clothes, as they are made for
upper class white people."
His answer to Oprah was a simple "YES". Whereafter she immediately asked him to leave her show.
My suggestion? Don't buy your next shirt or perfume from Tommy Hilfiger.
Let's give him what he asked for. Let's not buy his clothes, let's put
him in a financial state where he himself will not be able to afford
the ridiculous prices he puts on his clothes.
Please support this cause n sign.

I am responding to the many anti-sealing groups worldwide. These groups which have come into our country and told us we were archaic, and inhumane. I am a supporter of the humane seal hunt in Canada.
To date there is over 5 million seals in population, and this is an over-healthy population. I refer you to http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/media/infomedia/2005/ im01_e.htm for more information about the myths propogated by the anti-sealing groups.
Please let us all take a stand and show the rest of the world that we support our Government, our people, and our culture!

Sri Nara Chandrababu Naidu.
Ex Chief Minister of State & Leader of Opposition Party.
Chilkur Balaji Temple situated in Osmansagar (Chilkur village), Hyd is the only Temple in the World that boasts of not having a 'Hundi' and does not discriminate among any devotees based on their social status.
Devotees are NOT EXPECTED to make any MONETARY OFFERINGS neither are they accepted. The temple run by the Head Priest, Sri Soundara Rajan is being maintained well & the Lord is answering devotees prayers in bountiful.
The taking over of the Temple by the Endowments Department WILL introduce the 'Hundi' system and other special darshans for the VIP's. The common man who has been able to have darshan of the Lord JUST LIKE ANY OTHER VIP will be DENIED this privilege. Devotees will have to BUY tickets to have darshan of the Lord and more than anything else, it will lead to the COMMERCIALISATION of the Temple.
As you are aware that there is currently an ongoing agitation regarding the taking over of the temple by the Endowments Department; As the Ex Chief Minister of the State and a strong Leader of the Opposition Party, I expect COMPLETE SUPPORT from YOU towards the Temple Protection Movement.
We HOPE you will HELP US in seeing Chilkur Balaji Temple being taken care of by the same Archaka family, run on the SAME PRINCIPLES.
This is POSSIBLE ONLY WHEN NOT engulfed by the Endowments.
Thanks for your support.

Footscray police in flag heist
Michael Ascroft, Melbourne
Just two days after a deliberately burned Australian flag was put on display above a Footscray street, it was seized by police. The flag was installed outside Trocadero Art Space for the exhibition Proudly unAustralian by Melbourne artist Azlan McLennan. The provocative artwork was intended to be on public display for Australia Day.
McLennan commented to Green Left Weekly about "the audacity of the police to refuse to recognise how many Indigenous and Muslim Australians take offence to the Australian flag". He asked: "Does this mean that every time I see an Australian flag in public, or every bit of corporate advertising for that matter, that I can call Footscray police to have it promptly removed?" According to McLennan, "the law requires a reasonable amount of notice be given" so artists have the opportunity "to choose to remove the work themselves".
From Green Left Weekly, February 8, 2006.

Help STOP horse slaughter in Canada please read then Sign your name...
Horses are known and loved throughout our country for many, varied reasons. Horses are considered by some to be symbols of the wild west; to others they are noble, kind animals to ride and admire, Olympic partners, therapeutic riding mounts, and the creatures who provided them with fond memories of summer camp, dude ranches and vacation trail rides. Horses are all this to Canadians and for these reasons and more, we do not eat horses in Canada!
Over 70,000 American live horses and ponies are slaughtered inhumanely every year in the Canada each year, their meat marketed overseas fetching a high price, in countries like France and Belgium. The vast majority of Canadians do not approve of horse slaughter, yet it is still a little known fact that horses are killed for human consumption but when people learn this, they say "no more killing." We have the opportunity to end this tragic and needless brutality now.
This bill would end horse slaughter for food, including exporting both the flesh and live horses. Canadian horses are treasured pets and working companions. They should NOT be on anyone's menu. Foreigners are not entitled to eat our horses and ponies. There are plenty of alternatives for horses whose owners cannot or will not keep them. There are also many alternative and humane endings for these horses. It is the right thing to do. We are waiting.
If you would like to take charge yourself here are some...
Tips for Writing to Members of Congress
It should be no more than one page, preferably two to three short paragraphs. In the first sentence of the first paragraph identify the issue or bill number and whether you want your legislator to support or oppose it. Next, briefly describe why you want them to take this action. Lengthy letters with indirect messages are less likely to be read.
In a hurry?
Hand-written postcards are just as useful as letters. They can simply read: "Dear Representative __________: I urge you to support and cosponsor H.R. 1581. This bill would ban cruel steel-jawed leghold traps which injure and kill wildlife and family pets."
Facts about horse slaughter...
*Last year three foreign-owned slaughter plants cruelly slaughtered more than 65,000 horses for human consumption in Europe and Asia. Tens of thousands more of Canada's horses were exported and slaughtered in other countries.
* Slaughter is NOT humane euthanasia. Horses suffer horribly on the way to and during slaughter.
* 92.3 percent of horses arriving at slaughter plants in this country are in "good" condition.
* The average cost of having a horse
humanely euthanized and safely disposing of the animal's carcass is approximately $225, while
the average monthly cost of keeping a horse is approximately $200.

We often hear stories in the media, of horrific acts that others have committed once they have reached our land. We question why or how they were able to get through the stringent and strict procedures of our Country's Immigration Office.
We now have in our midst a decent and loving family of 4, who's desire is to stay in Canada and to join the group of our most productive citizens and friendliest of neighbors.
Victor Lopez Hernandez and his wife, Kaly Rosa Maria Lopez Lugo, along with their 2 very young sons, are doing whatever possible (within the boundaries of our laws) to stay in Canada.
Immigration has declined their application. Please help us to help them in their fight to stay here in this land of freedom.
Victor Lopez is from Mexico and his wife is from Venezula.
They entered this Canada on refugee status. Immigration may not even allow them to stay together as a family! They will be deported into their own countries/ place of birth. What kind of a Country do we live in where people (who sit on an immigration board), not only deports such a great family, but splits them apart?!
Victor has a very good and decent job and takes pride in providing for his family through hard work. He works in the construction industry as a skilled labourer. There is a shortage of skilled labourers in this Country. They are NOT asking for a free ride...just a beautiful country to live in, where they can exercise freedom and live in peace and harmony with all other citizens.
Please sign our petition to the Immigration board members looking at their case. We are asking them to reconsider their decision!

234. Help Somalia
The Right Honourable Paul Martin
Prime Minister of Canada
Dear Prime Minister,
After fourteen years of the absence of all forms of law and order in Somalia, there is a renewed optimism. Somalia and its people now have a government. Yet, without the help of the international community Somalia will remain a failed state.
Canada has demonstrated its commitment to being a world leader in peace keeping, and the fight against poverty, hunger, and disease in the developing world and Africa in particular.
The Somali population in Canada exceeds 100,000 and represents the largest community of African descent within our nation. The Somali-Canadian community believes that Canada should change its "wait and see" policy towards Somalia, and act immediately in supporting the Transitional Federal Government of Somalia (TFG).
I urge you to show bold international leadership by leading the way in supporting the Somali government's efforts to create peace and stability through the rule of law and the establishment of good governance. I believe the Government of Canada should take the following steps in order to facilitate the peace and reconciliation process already begun in Somalia:
Immediate and full diplomatic recognition for the Transitional Federal Government of Somalia;
Appoint a Special Envoy to Somalia;
Support Somalia in its efforts to rebuild by offering the services of experts in federalism and good governance;
Support Somalia in its efforts to reconstruction and institutional development by creating Somalia Reconstruction Trust Fund;
Help in safeguarding the unity, territorial integrity and sovereignty of Somalia;
Help in the creation of a national police force in Somalia using the expertise of the RCMP.
We feel the time has come, under Your Excellency's leadership, to use your good offices and influence in the House of Commons to help the Canadian government understand what is at stake in the Horn of Africa. I appeal to you, to support discussions and actions that will lead to the healing, restoration and reconciliation of Somalia.
Thank you for your favorable consideration,

We continue to take a stand against companies and members of congress who do not support womens rights. One thing we are not doing enough of is educating our children about women's rights.
Perhaps if the ceo's and members of congess who are not standing up for womens rights were educated about sexual equality at an early age maybe, we wouldn't continue to have to fight for them.
President Bush just made a statement that intelligent design should be taught in schools. His reasoning was (direct quote from msnbc):
"I think that part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought," Bush said. "You're asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, the answer is yes."
Bush is right we should learn about many different schools of thought and many different ideas. Therefore feminism should also be taught in schools. Both men and women have a right to know about the many issues women have to fight for.

Please sign the updated petition at the following link Online petition - Support UN Membership for Taiwan.
The TECRO Press Release promoting the new petition can be found here.
The Republic of China (Taiwan) is a free and peace-loving state, and its democratically elected government is the only one that represents the interests and wishes of the people of Taiwan.
Taiwan is the only nation not represented in the global assembly. The United Nations' exclusion of Taiwan violates the principles and spirit of the UN Charter, in particular the fundamental principle of universality, and of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Taiwan and its 23 million people are capable of making significant contributions to many UN efforts around the globe. Taiwan is also eager to do its part to combat such international problems as regional conflict, terrorism, drug trafficking, organized crime, and environmental degradation. However, Taiwan is denied an important means of collaborating with international partners. This unnecessarily complicates the task at hand and hampers efforts to deal with such critical issues.
Moreover, as we enter the tenth anniversary of the 1996 Taiwan Strait Missile Crisis, the recent missile tests by North Korea have once again raised grave concerns throughout the international community. From this perspective, Taiwan’s allies have expanded the scope of areas with security concerns in the peace proposal to include all East Asian countries rather than just the Taiwan Strait. They stress that certain countries in the region engage in the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction as well as missile deployment or testing, thereby escalating regional tension and affecting world peace.
Taiwan is a democratic nation that respects human rights, freedom, and peace. Taiwan meets all the requirements of UN membership. It makes little sense that Taiwan is ignored when considering the fact that Taiwan serves as a model for freedom and democracy in the Asia-Pacific and a beacon of hope for those living under communist rule. To safeguard peace, the United Nations has to facilitate the necessary dialogue between Taiwan and the People's Republic of China.
Please support Taiwan and help it gain representation in the United Nations.

The welfare system was created to give individuals and families a "boost" in times of need. For those families that are raising children as single parents, that "boost" was to be replaced by Child Support.
Yet, it remains that our "boost" has been snatched from underneath us, and we are freefalling through life. Those of us that strive for greatness, obtain a college education, and gainful employment are penalized with deductions in our support.
Why is support terminated at 18 years of age? Does the child, now grown up, no longer belong to the noncustodial parent? If I must support my son through college, why shouldn't his father? Why do custodial parents not get at least a minimal increase during months of pertinence: i.e. August-back to school, month of birth, or Christmas? These periods are particularly difficult times financially for single parents when the noncustodial parent does not acknowledge them. My particular situation, while odd, I'm sure is not unique. My child's father does not celebrate holidays, therefore he buys nothing for my child on his birthday or for Christmas, and to date, he has not explained to him the reason for his lack of acknowledgment. So as I struggle to gather school supplies, clothes and shoes, and plan a decent Christmas, he lives a carefree life, for in his eyes, his childsupport takes care of everything. The reality is, after paying daycare, there is less than $100/month to "support" my son.
Many single parents have attended college, as I did, in an effort to improve the lives of our kids. Despite our best efforts, the system is designed for us to fail! The better you do, the more you achieve, the less support you are granted. I refuse to be a failure! By supporting this petition, you are giving a voice to the needs of children across America. So many people fight for the rights of children in other countries while the children here continue to suffer. I refuse to struggle while my former partner donates pennies to the welfare of my child! We can wage war against this system, and one way or another, We will win!!
