Bullying – Stop the young ones now too..

 

 A Kanata mother of a 10-year-old girl, who says her daughter was bullied to the point of severe mental and emotional trauma, has launched a $325,000 lawsuit against the Ottawa Catholic School Board. Krisha Stanton is also suing her daughter’s Grade 3 teacher and others from St. Isidore Catholic School for not acting strongly enough to stop it. The statement of claim alleges Jaclyn Stanton suffered at the hands of a girl who constantly called her names and assaulted her. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/ottsun/100215/canada/school_sued_for_325g_over_bullying

YOUNG BULILES AND OLD BULLIES HAVE BEEN A CANADIAN PROBLEM TOO FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS AND NOW THEY ARE STARTING TO TACKLE IT ONLY?

School staff now required by Ont. law to report bullying  CBC.ca –  As of Monday all school staff in Ontario are required to report serious student incidents such as bullying to the school principal.

Serious School Incidents, Including Bullying, Must Now Be Reported CityNews
 New Rules For Reporting Student Incidents CD98.9
Government of Ontario News – February 1, 2010 9:00 AM

McGuinty Government Making Schools Safer, More Positive Places To Learn

Ontario is the first province in Canada to require all school staff to report serious student incidents — including bullying — to the principal.

Principals are also required in these situations to contact parents of victims — another first in Canada.

The new reporting measures came into effect today. They are part of the Keeping Our Kids Safe at School Act. The legislation makes schools safer and helps students achieve their full potential by:

  •  Addressing the reporting gap between principals, teachers and parents about all serious student incidents that must be considered for suspension or expulsion.
  •  Ensuring that parents are kept informed and principals are aware of serious incidents in the school so they can respond appropriately.
  • Requiring school staff to respond to inappropriate, disrespectful behaviour among students as well as activities which can lead to suspension and expulsion.

The legislation builds on Ontario’s safe schools strategy and is part of a comprehensive response to the Safe Schools Action Team report.

 
  • The Keeping Our Kids Safe at School Act was passed in the legislature on June 1, 2009, and comes into effect on February 1, 2010.
  • Staff at schools and school boards have received training on the new requirements.
  • Bullying and harassment can affect a student’s health, mental well-being and school success, according to a 2008 study by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.

    about time that a Life sentence in Jail meant a life time in Jail.

     

    I am really rightfully still no fan of the too often pretentious, inadequate Canadian Courts and the related bad, often lying Attorney generals, Solicitor Generals as well
     
    I continue to be amazed that almost no one any more is being prosecuted for perjury, lying to or  in the courts, It is like the judges themselves  know that even the judges and lawyers are liars too often themselves and if they prosecute the other liars they next would have to deal with themselves as well.
     
    It is also really  about time that a Life sentence in Jail meant a  a life time in Jail. Most of us already seem to know that to many Judges are too lenient on the real criminals, those persons  guilty of rape, sexual and physical abuses, robbery, major tax evasion, violence, and major economic, white collared crimes too.. All the convicted the criminals should pay back all they now have stolen as well, yes they should be deprived of any keeping any of the benefits of their wrong doings too.
     
    It is also time that all bad, crooked cops now also get what they really do deserve, real punishment, job dismissal as well
     
    It seems very perverse too that  the only courts that are efficient and do not hesitate to prosecuted, punish the accused offenders are the revenue generating traffic tickets courts.
     
    It is also time that all bad corporations, businesses  GUILTY OF FALSE, MISLEADING ADVERTISEMENT, UNACCEPTABLE BUSINESS PRACTICES GET THEIR REAL DUES, PUNISHMENT AS WELL..
     
     

     
     
    It is an undeniable historical  fact of life that if you try to tell the bad people what they do not want to hear, or what they do not want others to know they next often will try to suppress your right of free speech, by any means, by your false oppression now as well, and that yes includes crooked persons, bad cops, bad politicians, bad elders, bad pastors.. even in a democracy.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/10/27/about-the-governmental-civil-liberties-threats-during-the-2010-olympics/

    Supreme Court creates new public interest Free Speech, libel defence for press and bloggers

     

    I am glad you have agreed that the Charter of right forbids personal discrimination and allows any person to write to any news editor and to any elected official any concerns, but yes you all do still have the right not to read the material and the right to  delete it. If you as a news editor or a politician do not want to receive any emails from others still , please do take your name off the internet, and do stop asking people to contact you, to write to you.. and no one can bother you. Well at least next you cannot say before God you were not warned, did not receive the material too.  And yeah I do get rightfully upset when the Hypocrites, Pastors, Church Elders, Catholics, Evangelicals, Protestants, News editors, Jews, Conservatives, red necks, liberals, bad guys, bad cops too now  want the courts to insure their rigth of free speech protected but they do not allow other people the same right , a too common Canadian event still too..
     
     
    Supreme Court creates new public interest libel defence for press and bloggers  OTTAWA – The Supreme Court of Canada offered journalists and bloggers a new defence against libel Tuesday in a pair of rulings that were hailed as a landmark victory for free speech.  The rulings effectively exonerated the Toronto Star and Ottawa Citizen newspapers and created the new “responsible journalism” defence that will give reporters more leeway to pursue controversial stories as long as they are deemed to be in the public interest.  Media lawyers hailed the creation of the new defence as a major step towards reducing so-called libel chill, which prompts journalists to back away from contentious stories for fear of being sued, often by powerful interests with deep pockets to pay their lawyers.  The rulings also saved the two newspapers from paying out more than $1.5 million in damages, including $1 million for punitive damages against the Star, one of the largest such awards in Canadian libel history.  The Star story in question was about controversial plans for a golf course, while the Citizen’s articles scrutinized the activities of a former police officer.  The rulings mean journalists can make factual errors, but as long as they take a series of steps to ensure fairness in stories that are deemed to be in the public interest, they cannot be successfully sued for libel.  Chief Justice Beverly McLachlin, writing for the unanimous 9-0 court, said the existing libel defences were too restrictive and contrary to the free expression guarantees in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.  “To insist on court-established certainty in reporting on matters of public interest may have the effect not only of preventing communication of facts which a reasonable person would accept as reliable and which are relevant and important to public debate, but also of inhibiting political discourse and debate on matters of public importance, and impeding the cut and thrust of discussion necessary to discovery of the truth.”  The rulings were hailed by media lawyers and journalism organizations as a major step towards modernizing Canada’s archaic defamation law, bringing it in line with other jurisdictions such as the United Kingdom and Australia.  A broad coalition of organizations, including PEN Canada, the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, the CBC, the Globe and Mail newspaper and others supported the high court appeal by the Star and the Citizen.  “It’s probably the most important decision the Supreme Court’s ever decided on the law of libel. It modernizes our laws to better reflect freedom of speech and that’s in the public interest,” said Paul Schabas, the Star lawyer, who represented the newspaper in the defamation case brought by Ontario businessman Peter Grant.  “It means that the media and anybody else who’s acting responsibly can put something out for public debate and not be chilled because they can’t ultimately prove that it’s true in a court of law years later.”  “There’s now room been made under the Charter of Rights for freedom of expression, that if you don’t prove every fact true in a court of law there’s still room that your public interest story, done responsibly, is protected and you can’t get sued for libel,”  Dearden.

    Here is some more free speech of mine…
         
    In accordance with my rights of free speech too … Anyone who has read my blogs I rightfully still do not give an unconditional support for Israel’s past, present, future actions or reactions and I am not an anti Semite and you can tell that to Prime Minister Stephen Harper now too
     
     
    What about the CANADIAN charter right OF FREE SPEECH, to speak, to be heard in reality include  now all Canadians and not JUST  the selected few.
     
    (Titus 2:15 KJV)  These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
     
    Jason Bain I find it strange that 1 or 2 person alone of the thousands of email I send to all the major news editors, provincial members of the legislatures object to receiving email that they had asked others to write to them.. I often conclude they now rather are lazy, pretentious, control freaks or have some other issues that I too would be glad to fully discuss and help them now freely too..
    (1 Cor 14:29 KJV)  Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.
     
    (Col 3:15 KJV)  And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, 

    I know that a minority group wants LIKES to talk and be heard all the time, like the Toronto Star, and a few others, such as the National Post, Global, CTV, even the CBC, .. and when you write a letter to them they even often ask you not to write back to them, they do not want it or appreciate others  USING THEIR RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH..

     
    THE CHARTER RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH IN CANADA IS A REAL FARCE, UNDENIABLY STILL TOO. I WAS ARRESTED IN THE CALGARY CHIEF OF POLICE OFFICE AND FINED 250 DOLLARS FOR SAYING OUT LOUD TO THOSE COPS PRESENT THERE, YOU COPS ARE CROOKED, after I got 3 traffic tickets in a row from the same cops, and the statistical odds of this happening by chance now are astronomical.. AND THE POLICE CHARGE WAS DUE TO ME SPEAKING OUT LOUD IN A PUBLIC PLACE.. BAD COPS ABUSE  THE LAW, AND NEXT THEY ALSO DO STILL WANT TO BE THE ONLY ONES HAVING A RIGHT TO BE HEARD AND NOT ANY OF THE CITIZENS.  AND WE SEE THIS SO OFTEN IN THE POLICE REVIEW BOARDS WHERE THE CITIZENS ARE NOT FAIRLY, EQUALLY REPRESENTED AS WELL.. WHY DO POLITICANS ALLOW THIS AND SLEEP WITHT HEBAD COPS NOW TOO? THEY ARE SCARED OF THEM..  I  AM NOT.
     
    EVER SINCE THE COPS , NOW ABOUT 10 TIMES TRIED TO DENY MY RIGHT TO COMPLAIN ABOUT BAD COPS I NEXT KEEP ON RAISING MY VOICE LOUDER INSTEAD http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/10/12/supressed-right-of-free-speech-in-canada/
     
    It has always confounded me as to why the crooks, abusers  too often do still do think they can get away with now, next and forever.  Unlawful use of authority, obstruction of justice, home visits, bullying, false intimidations  by even the politician’s watch dogs, the cops  is nothing new to me.
     
    I have been often bluntly truthful , even that while 70 percent of the citizens are average good people, 30 percent are liars, thugs, criminals and you can find them at work, school, hospitals, real estate, police stations, politics, churches too, and these bad people they do belong in jail, jail is what they deserve. I myself have often been threatened by lawsuits from clearly bad or crooked bad Corporations like Bell, Royal LePage, and falsely intimated by even bad  cops, RCMP, and even politically biased  news editors, as well as bad church pastors…  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/02/12/the-police-already-tap-my-interent-phone/
     
    While God loves all of his children equally and fairly and does not show partiality, Stephen Harper the evangelical, as we  all should know by now he does not, he discriminates and shows false partiality. Cause he really is still a phony Christian
     
    I have to say there so many hypocrites in Canada.. the major media deleted the bloggers personal comment about a Gay Mp.. so much for free speech in Canada.. Gays want acceptance, THEIR RIGHT TO SPEAK AND TO B HEARD NOW AS WELL  but they and the news editors, news media do not allow other person’s free speech? Such hypocrisy

    I admit it

    I have to admit I am surprised as to how many persons have not seen from the start what a bad person, unacceptable one, an unacceptable bully Stephen Harper really is. Surely they cannot all be that dumb, inexperienced? 

    Hey he is just classical psychology study now of sibling rivalry, abuse  and If you notice the   warning signs in a person  over a period of time, the potential for increased unacceptable physical  violence by them next also exists:
      
    Even verbal abuse left unchecked, unrestrained next tends to escalate and leads to real, unacceptable physical abuses.
     
    Resolving the Conflicts requires still : Admitting, recognizing the stress issue. Effectively dealing with the issue in a positive manner… For the matters left on their own to be resolved   tend to get worse and not better and so far they have.. 

    When you recognize these unacceptable future increased violence warning signs in someone else deal with it.   Hoping that someone else will deal with the situation is still false way out.

    Be safe. Don’t spend time alone with people who show any of these warning signs and  remove the person from the situation that’s setting them off.

    The most important thing to remember is don’t go it alone. Expose the matter to others as well.

    a history of aggressive, abnormal, offensive behavior
    serious drug or alcohol abuse
    gang membership or strong desire to be accepted by the gang, to be in a gang
    threatening others regularly
    trouble controlling feelings like anger
    withdrawal from good friends and from the normal, usual, acceptable  activities
    visibly feeling rejected or alone
    having been a victim of bullying, or now being a bully themselves
    poor school or job performance
    history of discipline problems or frequent run-ins with authority
    feeling constantly disrespected
    failing to acknowledge the feelings  rights of others

    or failing to acknowledge  the abuse of others

    access to or fascination with weapons, especially guns
