Smoke and Mirrors

Smoke and Mirrors, the obscuring or embellishing of the truth of a situation with misleading or irrelevant information

.

Recreational marijuana will officially become legal in Canada on Oct. 17, 2018, Majority of Americans oppose it.  Nearly 40 percent of Canadian adults—more than 11 millions people—intended to consume pot. Consumers of legal age (set at 19 everywhere except Quebec and Alberta, where it will be 18) will also be able to purchase legal weed online, but Canadians will face strict  regulations surrounding where they can consume the drug. Canada’s bill Bill C-45, also lets provinces entirely handle the distribution and sales of marijuana — up to letting provincial governments directly manage and staff all pot stores by themselves. Provinces will be able to impose tougher rules, such as raising the minimum age.

.

Growing pot at home in Manitoba,  Quebec  could land you a ticket from police,  it will be illegal under the prevailing provincial cannabis law.Quebec’s bill applying the law, Bill 157, does not permit it.“If your neighbour denounces you, you will get a ticket,”

.

Premier-designate Doug Ford, Ontario  Progressive Conservatives  says he will focus on selling in government-run stores and the province plans a ban on recreational pot consumption in public spaces and workplaces, allowing it only in private residences, though medical marijuana use will be permitted anywhere that cigarette smoking is allowed.  Pot remains illegal in Canada until the new law goes into effect in October.

.

Canada, like the US, is part of international drug treaties that explicitly ban legalizing marijuana.  Canada will be, in effect, in violation of international law  by legalizing marijuana. Canada, signed on to three major international drug policy treaties: the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs of 1961, the Convention on Psychotropic Drugs of 1971, and the United Nations Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances of 1988. Combined, the treaties require participants to limit and even prohibit the possession, use, trade, and distribution of drugs outside of medical and scientific purposes, and work together to stop international drug trafficking. Canada could face diplomatic backlash by legalizing pot.

.

Meanwhile, alcohol still is linked to 88,000 deaths each year in the US. In Canada as well.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2018/02/14/the-truth-still-even-about-alcohol/

.

American border officials will start engaging in “extreme vetting” of Canadians “in relation to consumption of cannabis.” Canadian travelers will face heightened US border scrutiny and that they should expect to see more drug-sniffing dogs at high-traffic ports of entry post-legalization. .

.

Canadians Who’ve Used Pot Can Be Forever Barred From Entering the United States.  There has already been  an increasing number of Canadians being put on the inadmissibility list simply for admitting to past use. It’s illegal to cross the border with pot, even when entering into a state where the drug is now legal. Under the US federal immigration law, foreigners can be refused entry or even permanently barred from the States for attempting to enter with a controlled substance, for violating the drug laws of the US or any other country, and even for admitting to past drug use. Canadians on the no-entry list who want to visit the United States can apply for an inadmissibility waiver, but each waiver costs about $585 (US) and lasts one to five years, and so the process is a lifelong headache and a significant financial hurdle for the people who cross frequently for business, vacations, personal or family matters.

.

Americans also do feel U.S. relations have a better chance at improving in the year ahead with traditionally hostile nations such as North Korea and Russia than they do with allies such as Britain and Canada. Russia’s changing role in world affairs, a modernized armed forces along with China’s world wide growing influence, and friendship with Russia is at the root of the irrational Russophobia being peddled so passionately in Canada, UK. Western Liberal ideologues that cannot conceive of any relationship with Russia other than as a deadly or defeated foe, their condition of achieving a semblance of stability and peace in the world, is off to a false premise that will fail. No one has ever conquered Russia, and supporting the war by Ukraine is undoubtedly just a pretext.  Do they  really believe that Crimea means less to Russia than Alaska to the U.S.? The United States still does needs cooperation with Russia and China in many of the most pressing global issues of the day . And Europe and Russia go back together for centuries, back to the times of the Grand Duchy of Moscow.

Russia expressed disappointment over Canada’s decision to impose more actions over it. Additionally, Moscow vowed “revenge” against such decision saying that Canada is not improving international cooperation rather it is increasing the tensions.  Moscow recently said that it will result to retaliatory measures following Canada’s sanctions.  https://putin1hero.wordpress.com/2016/03/24/canada/

The basic, central or critical point of why many like Trump, Putin, Russia and others do not.  Is the Christian religion, Matthew 12- 30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.  https://putin1hero.wordpress.com/2018/06/06/the-crux-of-the-matter/

.

The Canadian government is risking making pot more accessible to kids and people with drug use disorders.  It could lead to more use and misuse by making pot cheaper and more available,  easier access could also pose a risk for people who can’t control their cannabis consumption. Marijuana   does carry some risks: dependence and overuse, accidents, nondeadly overdoses that lead to mental anguish and anxiety, and, in rare cases, psychotic episodes.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2017/01/21/war-on-drugs/

.

More than half (52 per cent) of Canadian employers said they’re concerned or very concerned about the implications of legalized marijuana on the workplace, according to a report by the Conference Board of Canada.Among those concerned, 57 per cent cited workplace safety, followed by impairment or intoxication at work (39 per cent); increased use of the drug in and out of the workplace (21 per cent); testing for impairment (20 per cent); managing needs related to accommodation and disclosure (15 per cent); and the cost, including covering medical marijuana and other financial affects on the organization (15 per cent).

.

Canadian military also is concerned about the  cannabis use. Marijuana use raises safety and operational concerns.The military has restrictions on use of alcohol.   Alcohol has been banned on certain Canadian overseas missions, marijuana may face the same restrictions and marijuana restrictions could be similar and even wider ranging in some functions, such as pilots.

.

The Canadian Bill C-46, which was tabled at the same time as the main pot legislation, includes new powers for police and harsher penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.The new law will strengthen the impaired driving laws to help better protect Canadians from alcohol and drug-impaired drivers.The police can require a roadside breath test for any driver. The crucial change is they will no longer need reasonable suspicion the person has been drinking. Drivers who refuse this test face a criminal charge with similar penalties to an impaired driving conviction. Canadian police officers can now use roadside screening devices that test saliva for the presence of cocaine, methamphetamine and THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.Canada will now be setting a “per se” level for THC in the blood within two hours of driving, meaning police can lay an impaired driving charge based solely on the blood test results without needing to further prove impairment.The per se levels are set through regulations, not the legislation itself. The government has already proposed its levels, based on nanograms per millilitre of blood:

  • A THC level between 2 and 5 ng would be a lower-level offence with a fine of up to $1000;
  • A THC level above 5 ng would come with the same penalties as an alcohol-impaired driving conviction, including mandatory minimum penalties of a $1000 fine on a first offence, 30 days imprisonment on a second offence and 120 days imprisonment on a third offence;
  • A mixture of a THC level above 2.5 ng and a blood alcohol concentration above 50 mg per 100 mL would have the same penalties as above.
  • .

The Provinces may add additional penalties on top of this.

.

Consuming even small amounts of cannabis shortly before driving could put someone over these limits. The government has said that  it is taking a “zero-tolerance” approach.

.

The Liberals see legalizing marijuana as a lucrative opportunity, increased tax revenue too..

.
Many people will tell you marijuana is not dangerous. Consider who is telling you that. Are these the same people who are using it or are trying to sell you some pot?
.
Most ostrich alcoholic  drinkers rarely admit they are alcoholics , that they are heavy drinkers or that they will suffer any negatives side effects such as cancer due to their drinking. In other words  Most ostrich alcoholic  drinkers are liars. Alcohol’s negative health impacts are undeniable. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2016/02/21/most-drinkers-are-liars/
.
The Cost of substance use in Canada tops $38 billion, with booze and tobacco presently on top.with a staggering toll of 67,515 deaths. The study by the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction and the Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research, was based on health, justice, lost productivity and other costs. We do need to think more carefully as we move toward legalizing recreational cannabis. Canadians need to be  aware of the ongoing and escalating human and economic costs.  More than one alcoholic drink a day could take years off your life. According also to  other researchers, roughly 20 per cent of all violent crime would not have occurred if the perpetrator was not under the influence of or seeking alcohol. Alcohol ‘directly causes’ seven forms of cancer. Governments across Canada, all put together, got roughly $10.5 billion in revenue and taxes from the sale of alcohol in 2013-2014, according to Statistics Canada, still much less than the $14.6 billion that the researchers estimate alcohol cost. Reports also do  says alcohol harm on the rise for Canadian women. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2018/05/31/who-is-next-2/

The Holy Spirit works in the lives of  Christians and empowers them to begin changing as their sinful burdens are released by the power of God’s forgiveness for their sins.

Canada-U.S. relations at all time low after trade tiff

US President Donald  Trump  and top aides assailed Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as a “weak” and dishonest” back-stabber who deserves a place in hell. Trump tweeted anew  his criticism of U.S. trade policies with Canada —

.

PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, “US Tariffs were kind of insulting” and he “will not be pushed around.” Very dishonest & weak. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 9, 2018

.

The past ties between the two countries are without parallel anywhere in the world. Now  two of the best neighbours on the planet are at war.The flare-up came as the recent G7 summit in Quebec concluded. “This is what a G7 is supposed to be about — all of us pulling together and doing things that matter for our citizens and for the world,” Trudeau said. Justin Trudeau  had argued the two-day event was a success but that is not how it has turned out next.

.

While Trump headed to his meeting with North Korea’s leader, Trudeau told reporters that Canada would retaliate against new U.S. tariffs it viewed as unfair. Trump was furious, pulling the U.S. out of the G7 joint communique and calling Trudeau “dishonest” and “weak.”  As soon as the US president’s plane left the Quebec G-7 meeting and took off from Canadian airspace, Trudeau an  unskilled negotiator stuck Trump in the back. That will not stand.

.

Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal. According to a Canada release, they make almost 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with U.S. (guess they were bragging and got caught!). Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%. Then Justin acts hurt when called out! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 11, 2018

.

Trudeau’s continual defiance will be  harmful to Canada and we do advise  him to seek conciliatory talks. Show  “maturity and forbearance” amid the tensions.with Trump rather than risk further trade reprisals. Trudeau cannot win at all in this war.  “While only 16 per cent of U.S. exports go to Canada, 72 per cent of Canada’s go south.” The dispute will poison everything. The prime minister, his Cabinet, and his various advisors have prided themselves on their US connections and friends but clearly they are not winning friends of the US.

.

The people who support, advocate the war are fools.There will be a great price to pay for Canada if the war continues and the war will be costly and  ultimately still unbeneficial to all Canadians. The simple reality is that Canada’s economy is far more dependent on trade with the U.S. than the other way around. Far, far more.

Trump also raised eyebrows by urging the G7 to once again become a G8 by bringing Russia back into the fold. But Trudeau said he told Trump that he had no desire to see Russia readmitted to the G7.”It is not something we are even remotely interested in looking at, at this time,” he said.The mainstream Liberals are in a hurry to delegitimize President Donald Trump, Putin but in doing so it delegitimizes itself.    Foolish   Warmongers want to Make Russia the Enemy: Mr Trump has been praised in the Russian press as a political realist who may end what many see as American aggression against Russia.

.
The Liberals and the Liberal  mainstream media have been lying about Russia, Putin.  The basic, central or critical point of why many like Trump, Putin, Russia and others like the liberals  do not. Is the Christian religion. The Western  Liberal  morons insanity towards Christian values also  continues to broaden.

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2018/04/24/canadas-pm-justin-trudeaus-immoral-rush-actions/

.

The Demon inspired Liberal fantasias is reinforced  every day. The press , Times included is obsessed with everything supposedly bad related to Trump or Putin — except the truth, the reality,  their actual political popularity. Donald Trump’s victory leaves Ukraine alone and afraid. Ukraine itself  is regularly ranked among the most corrupt countries in the world and allegations of double dealing, inflated contracts, bribery, and other claims among business and political elites are common. https://putin1hero.wordpress.com/2018/06/06/the-crux-of-the-matter/

Trump Tweets G7 Pictures to Prove All is Well Between Him and World Leaders.  https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1007750530976927744/photo/1

.

US President Donald Trump  on Twitter clearly  blamed “Fake News” for exaggerating tensions at the G7 summit in Toronto, Canada; he attached several photos from the same angle, in which the expressions and poses of the participants of the event clearly were more relaxed than the one single photo previously shown by the News media .A G7 photo of a stern-looking Angela Merkel staring at a seated Donald Trump with crossed arms.  “The Fake News Media said that I did not get along with other Leaders at the #G7Summit in Canada,” Trump wrote. “They are once again, WRONG!”Earlier on June 16, The Wall Street Journal wrote that during the G7 meeting, Trump was rude to at least half of the participants. ”I have a great relationship with Angela Merkel of Germany, but the Fake News Media only shows the bad photos (implying anger) of negotiating an agreement — where I am asking for things that no other American President would ask for! pic.twitter.com/Ib97nN5HZt — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)  June 15, 2018. 

https://twitter.com/i/web/status/1007745343306584064

Trump calls ‘fake news’ the country’s biggest enemy. Our Country’s biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2018

.

Trump also calls CNN ‘fake news’ after reporter asks him question at G-7. “Fake News CNN. The worst” – Rather in regard to his interactions with world leaders at the G7 summit last weekend in Canada,  “I would say that the level of the relationship is a 10. We have a great relationship — Angela [Merkel] and Emmanuel [Macron] and Justin [Trudeau]. I would say the relationship is a 10,” he said, referring to leaders from Germany, France and Canada, respectively.” -Trump.   Any thing they do, that Trump has done, is criminalized by his enemies. That’s why you see so many news articles coming out now on Trump by the Liberla news media such as CNN and NBC with The New York Times and The Washington Post, etc are lies.. Most people are terrible at separating truth from reality when it comes to things they read. Because it is in wring does not mean it is true. always Unfortunately,the standards for responsible journalism. Journalists,are not being applied. This a bad omen, indeed, for the future.

.

Trudeau, naively, immaturely  has already  embraced much too many left-of-centre, Liberals policies on behalf of his Liberal Party. The bad Liberals running this country are a bunch of immoral and unprincipled folks. Liberalism and Christianity are incompatible with each other. Liberalism advocates bondage and hate, Christianity advocates freedom and love”. “For now, the Liberal agenda allows people to be Christian in name only.” Any bill, which will ban any form of speech or written material that promotes traditional Christian views on marriage and sexuality is immoral, bigoted.  In the eyes if God homosexuality also is an abomination regardless if you ban bibles or not it does not change how God sees homosexuality no forgiveness for those people even a church can not change Gods words

.

The defining characteristic of the new liberal elitist ideology   is hatred of President Trump and Putin. Their brand visibly is selfishness, bigotry and hate. Under they guise of globalization, automation, centralization and uncontrolled immigration they don’t really care about democratic norms. The elites also  don’t really care about the rule of law, or love, as they just hate. There is nothing – not more jobs, not higher incomes, not even less risk of nuclear war – that matters more to these elitists then domination and hate.This Liberal elitist ideology brought enormous benefits to the elite themselves: even their own astonishing increases in wealth, booming urban centers, a fabulous quality of life for those fortunate enough to be a critical part of the elites while the rest of persons were the negative victims of the elites. 

.

The Liberals, Liberal media have not been successful world wide in their clearly expression of  hatred towards others, Trump and Putin worldwide. The most recent Gallup polling figures, for last week, showed Trump with a 90 percent approval rating among Republican voters. When liberal people do not give actual reasons for disagreeing with you, they offer ad hominem attacks and it is a clear sign that they are in denial, immoral, love to hear only their own views, opinions so they cannot understand your point of view  basically because it may sound more sensible than their own.

 

Crimea seceded from Ukraine and rejoined Russia in the spring of 2014 when over 97 percent of the peninsula residents voted in favor of reunification in a referendum. After the vote, Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a decree on the rehabilitation of the Crimean Tatars and other peoples deported from the peninsula.US President Donald Trump told G7 leaders that Crimea belongs to Russia because the peninsula’s residents speak the Russian language.

.

A statement by the Group of Seven (G7) countries demonstrates that the United Kingdom has only “groundless accusations” against Russia regarding the Skripals case,not based on any evidence. In the diplomatic row with Moscow over the alleged poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, the UK has yet to provide the German government with any evidence. UK has failed to provide valid evidence that Russia was behind the attack on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, as London insisted, since they were allegedly poisoned in the British Salisbury.  It is time for the UK side to apologize to Russia for accusations over the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal, as no evidence was provided by London to substantiate its claims. The G7 nations next  urged Moscow to “cease its  destabilizing behavior to undermine democratic systems and its support of the Syrian regime,” and threatened Russia with further restrictive measures. The document also supported the UK accusations against Moscow of the nerve agent attack in the town of Salisbury.

.

Clearly there is a lack of trust precedes the issue  of reliable news in Western societies, Europe, and the United States. There is an urgent need to develop a proper mechanism to check the menace of fake news, blatant lies, distortions, disinformation by the Liberal news media, Liberals  otherwise it can weaken the democracy. Disinformation refers to intentionally misleading content. The Collins Dictionary defines “fake news” as: “False, often sensational, information disseminated under the guise of news reporting.”

.

All the drama about Russian hacking,interference, and collusion are a smokescreen, masking the real reason why the Western Liberals as well hate President Vladimir Putin. The real conflict is about a geopolitical power struggle for world domination, which involves hundreds of trillions of dollars; https://putin1hero.wordpress.com/2018/04/22/the-liberal-immoral-lies-wars/

.

Meanwhile ITALY is set to deal another blow to Canada and the European Union after it announced it may not ratify the EU’s free trade agreement with Canada because it doesn’t protect Italian interests enough, in a move that would blow up the entire treaty. Italy’s reluctance to approve the deal would see the whole agreement torn into pieces, as all 28 EU member states must approve the deal for it to take full effect. Also a GENERATION of Poles frustrated with the European Union are calling for an end to the economic bloc and for Poland’s immediate withdrawal from the EU. EU law stands above the Polish national law today, and about 70 per cent of new bills are implemented directives created in Brussels. A big “incendiary point of contention”  , is the EU’s imposed migrant quotas – quotas which  Christian  Poland alongside Hungary and the Czech Republic has so far fervently opposed. With each passing day, the EU is growing closer to the USSR,  In national opinion polls,  Poland is riding high thanks to their strong economic record, their tough anti-migrant policies and their defiance of EU institutions. Poland leaving the EU is not a question of “if” but rather “when”.

Federal telecom regulator to investigate Canada’s largest telecommunications companies

The Coalition that includes Bell, CBC, Rogers, Quebecor Inc   they first should get their own houses in order, stop the lies, false misleading advertising.

bell-service6

No one should think that the bad press that Bell gets will encourage them to change their behavior. . The way they do business based and the consumer complaints   is unlikely to change the way this company behaves.  The Canadian government should do something about this as it is unacceptable that Bell is allowed to get away with bad, poor, immoral behavior like this.

The Government of Canada has ordered the federal telecom regulator to investigate Canada’s largest telecommunications companies for high-pressure sales tactics, demanding a public inquiry into the issue after a series of media reports revealed questionable practices.

Innovation, Science and Economic Development Minister Navdeep Bains announced Thursday that it directed the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission to investigate and report on sales practices in light of serious concerns over misleading or aggressive sales tactics.

Shocking Canadian facts

I have to say I was surprised, dismayed to be informed that school employees have presented a serious risk to children in their care and even  the number of school employees sexually offending against children.  The School employees were not alone in this, it included both male and female educational assistants, student teachers, lunch monitors, volunteers, secretaries, custodians and school bus drivers, the report says.

.

K-12 school personnel suspected or found guilty exclusively of child pornography offences included 77 males (99%) and one female (1%). The mean age of these individuals was 47.57 years — noticeably higher than those suspected of contact offences. Their primary occupations include certified teachers (73%), principal/vice-principals (8%), custodians (6%), and educational assistants (4%)
Collectively, the search of disciplinary decisions, media sources, and criminal case law yielded a total of 750 cases of sexual offences against a minimum of 1,272 children, carried out (or allegedly carried out) between 1997 and 2017 by 714 employees working in (or formerly employed by) Canadian K-12 schools
.

Among the study’s findings:

  • 87 per cent of the offenders were male
  • 75 per cent of the child/student victims were female
  • 55 per cent of the victims were sexually abused on school property (including field trip locations and school buses)
  • 29 per cent of the victims were abused in the offender’s car or residence
  • More than two-thirds of all victims were high school students
.
See the Prevalence of Sexual Abuse by K-12  School Personnel in Canada, 1997-2017,” published in the  Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, accessible at https://doi.org/10.1080/10538712.2018.1477218.
.
The frequency of such cases is certainly occurring more than one would expect. While one such case is too many, the fact this study identified 750 Canadian cases involving 714 school personnel from the last 20 years alone is  unquestionably alarming.”
.
Many offenders in this study engaged in grooming, a method that involves building trust with a child and the adults around a child in an effort to gain access to and time alone with the child. Some offenders in this study did not appear to employ grooming but instead displayed opportunism. Finally, there was a group of offenders in this study whose offences consisted solely of those committed online against children with whom they had not had in-person contact. This pattern was offending was characterized as online luring.All of this clearly demonstrates the need for enhanced efforts to protect children in schools. elsewhere too.
.
 Child sexual abuse includes a range of behaviours, from obvious contact offences,  to less obvious non-contact offences which include exposing a child to sexually explicit material, voyeurism, luring a child online for a sexual purpose, and inviting a child to sexually touch themselves or someone else. Children can experience trauma from both contact and non-contact sexual offences.
.
Furthermore, a study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal showed that 10% of the population (corresponding to some 3.6 million Canadians) reported having experienced sexual abuse before they were 16 years old.
.

The Criminal Code of Canada prohibits the offences  of sexual interference (touching of a child under 16 for a sexual purpose whether directly or indirectly, such as with an object) and invitation to sexual touching (encouraging a child under 16 to touch themselves or someone else for a sexual purpose, whether in person or online). The offence of sexual exploitation applies to children aged 16 and 17.And new offences have been added to the Criminal Code to address online risks to children, including the offence of online luring (which prohibits electronic communications with children that are designed to facilitate a sexual offence against the child), and the offence of agreement or arrangement (when two or more individuals use technology to agree to or arrange for the sexual abuse of a child). The Criminal Code also criminalizes the creation, distribution, possession and access of child pornography.

.

Those who pleaded guilty and those who were found guilty following a trial, a criminal conviction was entered for 78% of teachers charged with a criminal offence.
.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR POLICIES AND PRACTICES TO PROTECT CHILDREN FOR SCHOOL BOARDS
-Policies and practices that formally recognize commitment to safe communities.

-Policies and practices for bringing forward and responding to inappropriate behaviour and boundary violations.

-Policies and practices for managing situations when school personnel are criminally charged with sexual abuse, but not convicted.
-Policies and practices for managing situations when school personnel are not criminally charged, but there is still reason to be concerned about the individual’s actions.
-Standards outlining the expectations of school personnel demonstrating appropriate boundaries in their interactions with students.
– Appoint a team of at least two individuals for school districts who handle all incidents and concerns regarding teacher misconduct in an effort to centralize the information reported. This is where all rumours, allegations, or complaints are reported. Having all information centralized allows patterns of inappropriate behaviour to be identified and managed early.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR EDUCATION AND AWARENESS FOR SCHOOL PERSONNEL

– Educate staff regularly about the policies, practices, and guidelines to protect children during staff meetings or in-service trainings.

– Make sexual abuse prevention training mandatory for educators and school personnel. Training should outline the behaviours that are considered inappropriate so that everyone is working from the same set of expectations
– Educate new staff about the policies, practices, and guidelines to protect children as part of their orientation.

-Require new staff to take boundary/child sexual abuse training as condition of employment (with statement of professional standing, criminal record, vulnerable sector, and child abuse registry checks). ;

-Remind staff about policies, practices, and guidelines during annual evaluations, in newsletters, or communications on related issues.

– Include copies of the policies, practices, and guidelines in teacher handbooks.
-Have teachers take an oath as part of teacher certification — an agreed upon credo in which they pledge to their duty of care of children
