Campaign: Jobs & Economy

Labor free province.

We should have a province that is a labour free and have people to decide if they want to join the union of not

Now a union shop in a company demands that you join the union and you have not chaise. This is not good or free for our labour force.

Action Plan to create housing affordability

Ontario created an Affordable Housing Strategy but now it needs to deliver with actions to create housing affordability for poor and modest income families. Creation of more affordable housing will not only support the objectives of the Poverty Reduction Strategy but also create jobs in construction and related trades. Access to affordable ownership housing not only addresses many families need for appropriate housing, ...more »

REAL POLICING REQUIRED - THE MEDICAL AND PHARMACEUTICAL SECTORS

It is clear from comments posted in this section that it is clearly understood by the public, that in the medical sector and the pharmaceutical sector that crime is a way of life in the Health Care sectors. What is not clear is the role insurance companies have played but I think we can be sure it's significant in terms of hiding activities from the public that should not have been hidden. This allegation is not confined ...more »

Change the way minor traffic violations are handled - use email

It is insane that for minor traffic and parking violations a person needs to go to court in person and if they cannot find the time, then they lose. We need a process which will allow both the person charged with a minor traffic or parking offense to submit their case via email or in writing, and for the officer charged to also record their evidence and testimony, and then for a judge or justice of the peace to rule ...more »

Continual Care for Patients with Severe Disabilities

Allow complex-care medical clinics to treat patients from birth to death. Financially support doctors who work in these clinics as a team to care for patients in need of regular appointments with multiple medical specialists. Complex-care clinics are the best model of care for children with severe, multiple disabilities. Currently, these children must be discharged at the age of 18 & start over, attempting to find a ...more »

Thank you, commonground

It has been an honour and a privilege to participate with the exchange of ideas within commonground. I hope my involvement will have some positive effect on the Ontario Government decisions.

Pension Plan for all

A pension plan linked to social insurance number. No matter where one works, one contributes to this plan and so does the employer. This way we all will have a more dignified old age.

100% Transpareny in Food Production

It seems to me that a basic human right should be the ability to know everything about the production of the food we eat, yet this is not even close to the way it is. There is too much secrecy surrounding the handling of animals, which if unchecked could mean extensive cruelty towards the animals that people consume. Certified Groups should have access to farms and be able to see what is taking place. Hiding behind safety ...more »

The Way It Is and the Future of Multi-culturalism

In another post I talked about multi-generational Canadians not valuing education and someone challenged me to provide some evidence. Well just check out the age and nationalities of the people standing at the highway off ramps. I have yet to see an Asian person begging at the side of the road. I have been in business for most of my life and associated with owners and presidents almost exclusively because they were ...more »

A new kind of volunteer exchange service

A volunteer service could be created that would assist families who are separated by geography. It’s often easier to raise children, help take care of aging parents, dealing with illness, etc. with the help of one’s friends and family. They make things like emergency, or cost effective baby-sitting, home visits, cooking meals, etc. easier, nicer and more affordable than paid-for services, and create stronger communities. ...more »

Make CPR mandatory in all high schools

I believe that all high school students should be required to learn CRP. These are invaluable life saving skills which can empower our next generation of responsible citizen with the ability to save life. This is surely a worthwhile skill for all to know, and something which would make a worthwhile contribution to society.

Longer school days

There are studies to offer evidence that marginally longer school days greatly affect students’ performance in school in a positive way. By increasing the school day by 20 minutes — 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the afternoon — we will help our children get ahead.
