religious fanatics flooding brampton mailboxes disregarding parental rights

Shocking images of aborted fetuses are being dropped in the mailboxes of 100,000 households in Peel Region, where two MPs have been targeted by a pro-life campaign.

“I don’t want to ever see that again,” said Shalini Misir, a Brampton resident who says she still hasn’t gotten over the bloodied tiny bodies shown on the postcard style flyer she received in her mail last week.

The Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform, a Calgary-based anti-abortion group with a Toronto office, has targeted Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Parm Gill (Brampton-Springdale), Bal Gosal (Bramalea-Gore-Malton), Rick Dykstra (St. Catharines), and Michelle Rempel (Calgary Centre-North). All are Conservative MPs.

 

A spokesperson for CCBR said its campaign picked the five politicians because of their voting records on abortion issues and comments they have made about the subject.

“We started the campaign with these five politicians in May. It started in Stephen Harper’s (Calgary Southwest) riding, then we announced one more politician a week for five weeks,” said Jonathon Van Maren, while he was in Gill’s riding hand delivering postcards to homes.

He says 50,000 will be delivered in each of the five ridings, adding, “There are many more politicians to come.”

The postcards each have pictures of aborted fetuses right next to a photo of the MP representing the riding where the particular flyer is delivered.

Each MP is blamed for the gruesome outcome shown, and the cards encourage residents to contact their MP at the number provided.

“Why would people put that in a mailbox?” Misir asks. “There are so many children in the neighbourhood. I can’t imagine what they would be thinking if they saw that in the mailbox before an adult picked it up.”

It’s exactly the response, says Van Maren, that his group is trying to provoke.

“We’re quite glad that they’re perturbed. The images portray a disturbing reality. That’s an important part of the project; the exposure to what abortion looks like is one of the fundamental objectives of the project.”

Asked about the possibility of children seeing such disturbing imagery, he replied: “We recognize some children will see them … they’re not the focus of our campaigns. It’s a shame young children have to see what we do to other young children.”

Gosal responded to the campaign against him and his colleagues.

“We have made it very clear that the government does not intend to reopen this debate. I would also like to clarify for my constituents that my image was used without my permission, and I am not distributing these myself, nor am I affiliated with the group.”

Gill did not respond.

Harper has been widely criticized by pro-life groups for refusing to reopen the abortion debate in the House of Commons.

Misir says the group’s campaign did not have the intended effect on her.

“They didn’t win me over. The only reason I called my MP was to complain about how disgusting this group’s flyer is. Their cause has been completely lost on me.”

Why unpaid interns are bad for the music industry

The entertainment industry is an “it’s-who-you-know” business, perhaps more so than any other business, and for at least half a century it has meant companies have taken advantage of an endless stream of people willing to work for free in order to get their foot on the ladder. But this summer has brought a “revolt of the unpaid interns” in the US, with Fox Searchlight, Warner Music, Atlantic Records and, last week, Sony and Columbia all being hit with class-action lawsuits.

In a lawsuit resembling those filed against the other record labels, Britt’ni Fields claims that her work day at Columbia was spent answering phones, making copies, sending mail and “other similar duties” that “did not provide academic or vocational training”, adding that the label “would have hired additional employees or required staff to work additional hours” if she and other unpaid interns had not been hired.

Could this be a rebellion spreading to the UK? How widespread are unpaid internships among British labels? Warner Music UK confirms that they pay all their interns. A Sony UK source said: “We provide several different types of work experience, including long-term paid internships.”

A Beggars Group source said that the label group uses interns for specific purposes: “Such roles in and for a company like us are a fantastic foot on the career ladder, and a great way to learn – most of our entry level positions these days are filled by ex-interns.” The group pays interns’ expenses.

The problem with unpaid internships is not just that they put a financial strain on the interns – it also creates a somewhat homogenised pool of applicants, by excluding those that may be the most talented but can’t afford to work for six months to a year unpaid.

Universal Music UK spokesman Selina Webb agrees, and says this was one of the main reasons the company launched its paid internship scheme in 2009. “Before then we offered unpaid work experience, but we weren’t particularly comfortable with it. Longer periods of work experience were really only an option for people whose parents could afford to support them – of course that narrowed the talent pool considerably. Now we have applications, and interns, from a wide range of backgrounds.”

The company, which was singled out as a “fantastic leader in the field [of paid internships]” by Hazel Blears in the House of Commons earlier this summer, now takes on about 25 new interns a year. The internships cover every part of its business from A&R, marketing, promotions and digital through to legal, finance and sales. They last 12 months and interns are paid the London living wage.

UK Sikhs oppose halal meat plant just behind Bradford Gurdwara.

Sikhs in British city oppose halal meat plant near Gurdwara.

London | IANS |10  August 2013::  Members of the Sikh community in the northern British city of Bradford have come out against a halal meat plant being planned at a site next to a prominent gurdwara.

The city’s leading meat retailer Pakeezah is planning to convert the site on Percival Street, once a car repair workshop, into a modern wholesale meat plant.

But since the site is close to the Bradford Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara building, local Sikhs are fiercely opposing the plant saying that meat odour would waft into the religious building, The Telegraph and Argus reported.

“Many of our people are strict vegetarians and the meat processing unit being so near to the temple is disrespectful and insensitive,” Kuldip Bharj, secretary of the Board of Bradford Gurdwaras, was quoted as saying.

She, however, clarified that although Sikhs do not eat halal meat, they do not condemn…

Mental Illness: People pray at tree outside St. Johns Cathedral in Fresno, California, say tree weeps God’s tears

 

 

 

 

FRESNO, California — – As the mid-day sun beat down, a group of parishioners  huddled under a tree looking for shade, but seeking a miracle.

Rosemarie  Navarro, a parishioner at a Fresno, California Catholic Church says, “I said my  prayer and asked the Lord to give me a miracle cause I’m really, really sick.”

Navarro counts herself among the believers, a small but growing group  that thinks the liquid dripping from this Crape Myrtle tree is the tears of God.

Parishioner Maria Ybarra says, “When you say ‘glory be to God in Jesus  name’ the tree starts throwing out more water.”

On close inspection,  arborist Jon Reelhorn agrees, something is falling from the tree in front of St.  Johns Cathedral. But it isn’t water.

“The aphides will suck the sap, the  sap goes through the aphid and then it is a honey dew excrement from the aphid  and it gets so heavy in the summertime that it will drip down,”  Reelhorn  says.

He calls it a natural process. He also found another tree dripping  across the street. And like the honey dew rolling off its leaves, clinical  therapist Mark McOmber says the way people choose to interpret it can also be  attributed to nature.

“Human beings inherently need to hope for things,  things that they can’t understand, things they can’t see,” McOmber says.

Miracles are nothing new in Christianity. In fact, their origins can be  traced back to before the time of Jesus. But for catholic Miguel Beja, this tree  doesn’t qualify.

“For me it is a natural thing but for some they say its  different,”  he says.

Maria Ybarra was the first one to feel the  drops this Wednesday and whether they are aphid waste or water, she believes  they’re divine.

“I can tell you looking at it from a scientific  standpoint and a spiritual standpoint it is the work of God manifesting here on  earth,” Ybarra said.

Parishioners say the water started falling on  Wednesday.

Conservative protester gets attacked at Sammy Yatim Protest

When the Sammy Yatim protesters were at the Toronto Police Service’s headquarters a man who claims to be with the Conservative party came up to the crowd with a sign saying “God Bless The Police”. The crowd got very hostile and attacked him- and anarchist stole his sign, and he was forced back behind the police line.

The end of the video includes an interview asking his opinion on the Yatim protest, the police’s behaviour the night Yatim was killed, and the family’s quick shift in behaviour from controlling the crowd to shouting out “kill the pigs”…
