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 »
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.

It was flown at all military installations in Canada and overseas, outside the legislature and government buildings, ...more »
Commit to announce, implement, and publicly report on a multi-year plan for implementing the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) to ensure we reach full accessibility by 2025. Immediately start developing new accessibility standards in education, health care, and residential housing. Report annual on the detailed plans and enforcement.
Announce and enforce a strategy to ensure that no public money is ever used to create or perpetuate barriers for people with disabilities (such as public funding for buildings that are inaccessible).
To many accidents are related to handheld devices. Make a scrambler of sort mandatory for every car. No calls can be received or made on hand held devises.
On all 400 series highways, heavy trucks should be mandated to stay in the far right lane except to pass. This will help reduce stop & go congestion and provide better visibility to all other drivers.
