As political parties and local candidates campaign for your vote in the Canadian federal election, CJFE encourages you to take the time to ask your candidates about their stance on critical free expression issues. Each week until the May 2 election, CJFE will be posting questions which you can then e-mail, call or write to the candidates in your riding. We'd love to know what they say, and what your thoughts are on these issues too. Ask your candidates about a public inquiry into the G20 Summit On March 25, the Public Safety and National Security Committee was set to present a report to parliament entitled “Issues Surrounding Security at the G8 and G20 Summits.” The Committee’s mandate was to shed light on the numerous incidents in the public security operations, which involved over 20,000 security personnel. Among the series of recommendations the Committee proposed was Recommendation 7, calling for a comprehensive public inquiry: “That the Government of Canada convene a full judicial, independent public inquiry to investigate the security at the G8/G20 summits, with sufficiently broad terms of reference to allow it to investigate all levels of government, all decision making processes and all the events that occurred that led to property damage, civil rights violations, and bodily harm, and with the power to make recommendations stemming from its findings to ensure similar events are never repeated in Canada.” (Read the full Report) As the Report was released on the same day as the vote of non-confidence, this recommendation may not get the attention it deserves. CJFE has previously issued calls to the government for a public inquiry into the conduct of police at the G20 Summit, and supports this resolution. We invite you to ask your candidates the following questions: 1) If elected MP of my riding, will you promote a comprehensive public inquiry into the security at the G20 Summit, as recommended by the Public Safety and National Security Committee? 2) What will your political party do to ensure that the right of Canadian citizens to free expression is not violated in the future? You can e -mail, call or write to the candidates in your riding, and let us know what they say on our Facebook Discussion Board. We'd love to know what your thoughts are on these issues too. Not sure who your candidates are or how to get a hold of them? Elections Canada allows you to search by your postal code to find information on your riding.

    August 24th 2020, my husband proposed and agreed to marry me then we both planned for the wedding. Our wedding was to be held on September 27th. We had a little misunderstanding and he left me for another girl. I almost committed suicide. which lead to our break up. I was not myself again, I felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worse, until a close friend of mine told me about a spell caster who helped her in the same problem too. His name is Doctor Ogudo. I emailed the spell caster and I told him my problem and I did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before I knew what was happening, less than two days ago my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me. I was so happy to have him back. The most interesting part of the story is that I am pregnant. Thanks to Doctor Ogudo for saving my marriage and for also saving others’ own too. Continue your good work, If you are interested to contact the great spell caster email address: [email protected]
