Free Dr. Tarek Loubani and John Greyson!

The charges against Dr. Tarek Loubani and John Greyson are unjust and unfounded--they should be released immediately! It is clear that they are innocent, and do not deserve to be suffering in prison! They have already been wrongfully imprisoned for two weeks--how much more do they have to suffer before they are brought back to Canada safely?!

Stop failing the mentally ill!

I agree with Association president Jim Chu--various levels of government need to invest more resources in mental health care and make sure it is getting to the right people, so that someone's possible mental health crisis can be prevented in the first place. Why are we allowing people with mental illness to fall through the cracks, and then when these people are addicted to drugs and alcohol, living on the streets, and end up in the criminal system, we act like it's a surprise?! WAKE UP!!!

Cancel "Border Security", a useless reality TV show!

Reality TV show "Border Security" needs to be cancelled immediately! It is an invasion of privacy and offers no value to Canadian society! People's humiliation and misery should not be broadcast as entertainment, and it is unthinkable that anyone would defend this! A show like this should not be produced anywhere, and it definitely does not belong in a country like Canada, which claims to be based on democracy and respect for human rights! By allowing "Border Security" to continue, Canada is allowing itself to become a surveillance state!
For more information on how "Border Security" is destroying lives, please read and sign the following petition:

Backlash against payout for chief who sexually assaulted girl increases

I agree with everyone who has criticized chief Terrance McArthur for getting a large payout after sexually assaulting a girl--he is a criminal, and deserves to be treated like one! He has refused to step down as chief seveal times even after he was found guilty, showing that he feels no remorse for what he did. The band council's treatment of McArthur as if he is some kind of victim is equally disgusting--they should be providing compensation and support to the girl who was sexually assaulted, not bailing McArthur out!

Lenient sentence, payout for chief who sexually assaulted girl is outrageous!

Why is Terrance McArthur, the chief who sexually assaulted a girl, being sentenced to only nine months in jail?! This lenient punishment is sending the message that if someone commits sexual assault, he or she can serve a little bit of jail time, then move on with his or her life as if nothing has happened--this is wrong on so many levels! Where is the justice for the sexual assault victim?! Apparently the band council didn't bother to think of her at all, as they are also giving McArthur a payout of over $47,000! Why is the band council paying McArthur after he has sexually assaulted a young girl?! This is DESPICABLE!!! I find it bitterly ironic that Aboriginals across Canada are pushing for a national inquiry for females from their own communities who have gone missing or have been murdered in Canada, yet this Aboriginal band council turns a blind eye to the issue of sexual assault within their own community--this is ABSOLUTELY VILE!!!
