Improvement to our Pallative Care System

Ingratiation of All Aspects of Palliative Care: Why not have a entire floor or a wing in every hospital dedicate to only people who require palliative care. Why should those patents be moved to a different hospital to receive Palliative care. Should there not be more than 10 beds for palliative care patients in a city of over 175,000. Not everyone has the options of dying at home. 90% of the patients prefer to... more »

Deposit for Return: Half of Plastic Bottles Sold in Ontario End Up in Landfill

Of the 3 billion plastic bottles sold in Ontario 1.5 billion end up in landfill. Ontario's performance is very poor in comparison with other provinces which are succeeding to divert more plastic from landfill with a deposit for return program. Ontario should do the same and use the funds generated to finance maintaining the health of the Great Lakes and other waterways.

Plastics are dangerous for our health because they... more »

Massive waterfront park for Toronto - parks not condos

Toronto does not have enough parkland Downtown for a city of its size - unlike New York with Central Park, Vancouver with Stanley Park, Brooklyn with Prospect Park, San Francisco with Golden Gate Park, Montreal with Mount Royal, London with the royal parks or particularly Chicago with its incredible waterfront parks.

Toronto is talking about a 1.66 billion park over the railways - about $80 million per acre, and while... more »

Proper Code for Cyclist and rules for road sharing

Cycling is one of the best mode for travel. However, to ensure the safety of cyclist, pedestrians, drivers and other road users cyclists need to abide by a code and the OPP and other police authorities should implement the procedures. Such as penalties for riding bikes across pedestrian crossing or the walkway. Penalties for using bikes on the road when a dedicated lane for cyclist has been allocated. Proper education... more »

MAKING HOME OWNERSHIP A REALITY

People dream of owning a home, but in Ontario’s big cities, especially Toronto and Ottawa, the dream of home ownership is out of reach for many people. Houses should be places for people to build a life and raise their families, not for greedy speculation - which
is one of the main things which is driving up home prices.

The Government of Ontario will help home buyers by clamping down on land speculation and property... more »

Eradicate Workplace (Sexual) Harassment that Costs Billions to Economy*

Workplace (sexual) harassment costs billions* to economy through:

1) Burdening businesses with 'absenteeism, lower productivity, increased health-care costs, ... employee turnover'* and legal costs.
2) Reducing tax revenue due to higher (from 1. above) tax-deductible business costs.
3) Draining tax resource for health care to traumatized harassment/sexual assault victims and secondary-traumatized family including children.... more »

Create incinerators for garbage and end land fills

The practice of collecting garbage and trucking it to land fill sites, shipping to other countries, dumping in the ocean, etc needs to be stopped. Incinerator’s are used in Europe for garbage and the energy collected is used. This works well and would work well in Canada. We have to start taking care of the earth, our children deserve this.

Impose Term Limits and Ranked Ballots on Municipalities

Yes, I said "impose" these things on all Ontario municipalities - because currently the Province of Ontario will do so only,
if and when, a municipality votes to request it, but the problem with this is that many city and town councillors across Ontario are voting against these two measures - usually out of self interest.

I believe that the Province of Ontario shouid amend all applicable legislation to impose mandatory... more »

Senate referendum in next general provincial election

Even though the senate is federal jurisdiction, the federal government may modify its view if the residents of the most populous province, containing 38.3% of the population of Canada, are supportive of abolishing the senate, where 22.9% of the seats are allocated to Ontario. The constitution prevents any province from having fewer MPs than the number of senators, so the continuation of the senate effectively discriminates... more »

Strong Minds for the Future

In Ontario, we have one of the most comprehensive health care systems in the world. In the mental health area, there have been many strides made - specifically as it relates to Children & Youth.

We recognize that there are significant gaps in access to mental health support services province-wide. While there has been a successful three-year strategy for children and youth, more needs to be done.

Our vision is for... more »

Add Universal Pharmacare for all Ontarians to OHIP

Canada is currently the only country in the world with a single payer universal national healthcare system which does not cover any and all proscription medications for free at the point of use.

End Ontario's Breed Ban. Remove all Breed Specific Language in the Ontario Dog Owner's Liability Act.

Ontarian's want fair, just and effective legislation when it comes to our animals. Discriminating and profiling dogs based only on appearance is draconian at best and does not decrease dog bites nor promote public safety. The current ban was pushed forward against all professional advice and evidence shows breed bans do not work. Thousands of good family dogs have been victimized. Thousands of responsible dog owners... more »
