Image result for image of irwin cotler as minister of justice

 

 

Image of the Honorable Irwin Cotler as Minister of Justice and Attorney General. in 2004, I wrote to him about my being discriminated on the grounds of Political opinion under the ICCPR, 

When I was national leader of the Green Party of Canada,I found out in 1998 that I was on a RCMP Threat assessment list. In 2002  I filed a case about being on a threat Assessment list and was in Court was against Paul Partridge  the Lawyer for the Attorney General office.. The lawyer from the then Attorney General Office was obviously acting in the political role of the Minister of Justice.  I was appealing in court for the attorney General to reveal the reason for my being on the RCMP list. The Judge said that I did not have enough information; I replied that he placed me in a conundrum because the government had refused to divulge the reason for my being placed on the list. The judge struck my claim but did not dismiss my case and advised me to go through access to information and Privacy to obtain documents which I did but the responses were all didacted for international reason of security.  In 2004,I wrote the enclosed letter to Irwin Cotler as Minister of justice and Attorney General and received no assistance from him. Irwin Cotler is purported as being concerned about discrimination on the grounds of political or other opinion in other countries yet not in Canada in 2004 when he was minister of Justice in his partisan role or as Attorney General, in his non partisan role.

Joan Russow founded the Global Compliance Research Project that  calls upon countries to comply with their international obligations and commitments. She has attended many international climate change, and environmental conferences.  Injunctions should be against those who cause irreversible harm not those who strive to prevent irreversible harm. Since Clayoquot Sound, she has been concerned about the misconstruing of injunctions and she is still saying, as she did then, “who are the real criminals?

 

 

Is it a crime to strive to prevent crime or is it a crime to cause and condone it?

 

A. NOT HEEDING AN INJUNCTION AS BEING AN EQUITABLE REMEDY THAT MOVES WITH TIME AND CIRCUMSTANCES AND TREATIES MUST BE COMPLIED WITH IS UNIVERSALLY RECOGNIZED (PACTA SUNT SERVANDA)

B. DISREGARDING “BEING HARMFUL” TO ECOSYSTEMS AS BEING A CRIME TO STATE AND SOCIETY –

C. OVERLOOKING THE PRECAUTIONARY PRINCIPLE AND CONSERVATION  COMMITMENTS

D DISCOUNTINGA GLOBAL VISION FROM COP21 CONFERENCE  IN PARIS

E. DISRESPECTING RIGHTS OF FUTURE GENERATION

F. DISPENSING WITH UN DECLARATION ON THE RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES (UNDRIP)

The gathering storm of human-caused threats to climate, nature and economy pose a danger of systemic collapse comparable to the 2008 financial crisis, according to a new report that calls for urgent and radical reform to protect political and social systems.
 
The study says the combination of global warming, soil infertility, pollinator loss, chemical leaching and ocean acidification is creating a “new domain of risk”, which is hugely underestimated by policymakers even though it may pose the greatest threat in human history.
