Have we really become as enlightened and egalitarian as our Elders hoped:In 1919 Winnipeg held a general strike for the rights of the working class.

Women’s Suffrage in Canada from the late 1800’s to early 1900’s

It was the 1930’s before the Metis were seen as actual human beings

Aboriginal Rights movement that was shocked by the death of an indiginous veteran on the streets of Winnipeg in the 1960’s that leads us to #IdleNoMore

The enshrinement of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in the Constitution Act 1982

Universal Health Care finally going Nation Wide between 1957-66 (imagine you’re sick and will actually be helped).

First Old Age Pensions in 1915-27

1960’s-`70’s – Homosexuality and Divorce Decriminalized and moved into the modern era of understanding within our society.

1969-1988 women’s reproductive rights finally liberated from the older caucasoid male, Abortion decriminalized, legalized and finally provided for under the Health Act.

2010 say the Occupy Movement

Marriage Equality in 2005…

The Differently Abled still fight to be seen as full participants in society.

Citizens still die on the job; do not earn living wages; still die on the streets…

Labels still make individual’s less than in the public’s eye.

When are we going to realize that in just under a 100 years we have come along way, but there is still another million miles to come…

Let 2013 be the year of Universal Equality for all Canadians.

Let 2013 be the year that we hold our Government and citizenry to account for the promises of our Constitution Act, Under God (actually and aboriginal concept of the Sacred)…peace, order and good governance are guaranteed.

These grow out of fair and equitable distribution of resources; living salaries; care for creation and one another; reinvestment within our social network and education and a striving to celebrate our unity as Canadians within our diversity that makes us uniquely one nation.

A year when we will realize a nation that is truly for the people, where everyone participates fairly, interdependently and with one another. Where labels finally are buried and we become a beacon for transformation within the rest of the world to be at Oneness. H-U-M-A-N-I-T-Y.

For the better, let your actions transform us in 2013, For the renewal.

Alleluia.
