“Homelessness and rough sleeping is something we just can’t have in our cities, people dying on the streets. It’s not the type of society or city we want to live in.”

Couldn’t agree more!

One of Canada’s prairie province has succeeded also! Bravo!

The UNIVERSAL and CANADIAN HUMAN RIGHTS and FREEDOMS Grade Six Students Learn in School

Of course, as you know, what children are taught in classroom is often overridden by what they see and experience in their lives, so what are we teaching children by our beliefs, words, and actions?


The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 (General Assembly resolution 217 A) as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected and it has been translated into over 500 languages.


The Canadian Human Rights Act


The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms


Human Rights in Our Provinces

Provincial and territorial human rights laws are very similar to the Canadian Human Rights Act and apply many of the same principles. They protect people from discrimination in areas of provincial and territorial jurisdiction, such as restaurants, stores, schools, housing and most workplaces.

Canada’s Multiculturism Day and Connecting the Dots … with The Respect Principle

Hooray! Today Canada celebrates the diversity of our country created by the immigration of people from around the world!

Many people have forgotten this because as far back as they may recall, their family has always lived in Canada, yet our national and family histories reveal WE ALL came from other countries, and in fact, some of us come from countries who did a lot of invading and conquering, which meant inflicting a lot of mass destruction.

So, the valuable lesson for ALL of US is developing respectful ways to get along no matter where we live … in the same manner we ask children to get along with others  … regardless of our personal religious, political, social, etc. beliefs.


For our own peace of mind that will keep us rational AND compassionate.

And so we can show, not just tell the children, how to co-create a better world.

Connecting the Dots … with The Respect Principle … will make it so because the concept is logical, practical, and compassionate, which gives it the ability and power to overcome ALL prejudice.

Now we just need to decide to act with the wisdom … plus encourage and empower others to do the same.

Respect … the way back into love.

Standing Up Against Bullying … Aggression … Tyranny Costs, But …

But not standing up costs a lot more … if people had acted sooner, Adolf Hitler would not have been able to inflict the horror on the millions of people … not only in concentration camps, but all around the world.

Peace is always the goal but for peace to be attainable, Respect Levels must rise beyond what they have been and what they are now.

How they will rise is by people Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE because it is not based on any qualifier … politics … religion … social status … race … etc.

A life is a life and taking one, except out of protection and to stop bullying … aggression … tyranny demonstrates not only the lowest Respect Level for other people, but also for one’s self … because when one truly values … respects … his or her self, a person is then capable of valuing other lives and no longer requires the need to control others to feel okay about themselves.

My prayers, and hopefully many other people’s prayers tonight, will go out not only to the soldier shot point-blank outside Canada’s Parliament today, but for those who inflicting such horror … so their pain will ease and they will see clearly that bullying … aggression … tyranny … and hate only begets violence for their violence.

Raising the RESPECT LEVEL in Long-Term Care (Nursing) Homes for Seniors

Just finished an Urgent Call for Immediate Action letter addressed to both Ministers of Health, Canada, Rona Ambrose and Ontario, Deb Matthews. Emailed the letter to the local Huron-Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson’s office and they will forward it to their contact … who will get it to the people … who will get it to the Ministers.

Thanks to all for your help and patience while I researched the protocol for managing the care of residents’ hearing aids, eyewear and other personal devices in long-term care homes so I could provide some viable solutions to increase the RESPECT LEVEL of care of our seniors … catalyzed by the need to prevent the loss and damage to our Dad’s replacement hearing aid arriving in the next few weeks … that will replace the two lost and damaged aids (value $4000.00) in January. Still working on getting his eyeglasses (value $273) replaced if his benefit will allow access to the remaining $127 of his two-year benefit … which I hope, hope, hope.
