@trapdinawrpool Why would John Tory want to draw any attention to the Court of Appeal’s pending review of Justice Belobaba’s Decision to uphold the Constitutio, democracy and representation rights?

John Tory wants to minimize any attention to the Court being packed on Monday & Tuesday.

@trapdinawrpool John Tory would prefer Torontonians be ignorant & passive about protecting our rights while he & the Province work towards selling off #Toronto to their friends.

A Public who knows its rights expects its rights to be upheld, protected & ensured.

The important point to keep in mind regarding section 33 of the Charter of Rights & Freedoms is why it was included. Think about what was going on at the time and why the Charter was even created.

Sect. 33 is a white supremacy tool that was included to make white men feel safe.
Now that this fact has been said, let’s get to the heart of addressing the attempt to abuse power in order to maintain white supremacy.

It’s 2018, time to rule section 33 unconstitutional when used to subvert Canadians’ inalienable rights to a free & democratic society.

History has taught us many lessons.

Some people learn from them and some people don’t.

During the time when then Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and other white male elected Representatives were working on ensuring that underrepresented and marginalized Communities were protected

Dear Seniors,

I love you!

I’m writing to you as your TORONTO Mayoral Candidate because the media & supporters of status quo are doing their very best to exclude Black Candidates voices- as usual.

Have you been co-signing maintaining the status quo?

#TOpoli #ElectionTO #TOvote
Have you shaken hands and made agreements against the Public’s interests, specifically Black Candidates in order to maintain the status quo?

Are you amplifying voices presented to you by the establishment?

Have you turned away from your public chants of “end racism, stop racists, etc...” during this Election period and are instead prepared to publicly/quietly push what the establishment has been pushing just to get the results that you say you’re against?

Dear Black sisters & brothers in Toronto,

I’m writing to you as your Mayoral Candidate, because the media & supporters of status quo are doing their very best to exclude us- as usual.

They’re deal making & hand shaking to the detriment of your ability to live & thrive.

#TOpoli
Have you shaken hands and made agreements against your own interests to maintain the status quo?

Are you amplifying voices folks who NEVER
👉🏿knew you?
👉🏿cared about you?
👉🏿advocated for you?

#TOpoli #ElectionTO #TORONTO #OurCityHallToo #OurTorontoToo #OurCityHall #TOvote
Are you giving your energy to folks who want your labour in exchange for some future promise?

Why have you compromised yourself so that the status quo can be maintained?

Why should status quo remain sustained?

Life ‘seemed’ easier when I was with my white people.

Inequitable treatment continued.🙈🙉🙊
Homelessness continued.🙈🙉🙊
Black people were being brutalized & killed by the State.
Injustice continued.🙈🙉🙊
Mediocrity maintained the status quo.🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♀️
Wilful oblivion
White privilege allows wilful oblivion.

I never understood this wilful oblivion when I was with my white people.

My white people were my family, including literal actual family.

I questioned, “Was it this wilful oblivion that allowed:

👉🏿 over 400 years of slavery
👉🏿116 yrs of residential schools
👉🏿48 yrs of apartheid
👉🏿35 yrs of the Chinese Head Tax
👉🏿5 years of Auschwitz
👉🏿our current gov’t
👉🏿indifference”

Brother @SamTecle, I watched the video of the 2014 Mayoral Debate again and am reminded how Jane-Finch boldly stood up for & with me!

Together we succeed!

#CommunityUnity #TOpoli #TORONTO #ElectionTO #OurTorontoToo #OurCityHallToo #OurCityHall
What the Jane & Finch Community audience publicly & actively did was the example of what we should be doing.

Jane & Finch’s example was the example of outrage for the nonsense going on during that election.
I expected to see this response at other ‘debates’.
