A Mother's Nightmare
I only have
the truth to tell you!
I lost a daughter who was very young and I have a son who is ill. He always stood for what is right and helps other people. Bad things are happening in his life as well as mine, but in different ways. This is where I took a leap of faith and decided to do something to make a difference. My son Tony entered into the 2006 election with friends and business associates. He figured this is where he could get the help he and so many others needed. He put it all on the line to fight for justice and truth. The least I could do was to help in any way I could. I worked the phones trying to rally support for the NDP in election 2006. I talked to people about injustice and encouraged them to fight for their rights. I worked many long days and nights for the party. It was a huge success overall. It wasn't until the election was over that the trouble began for me. Then the ensuing attack of bills and phone calls began for me. I received a letter out of nowhere a week after the election. Nova Scotia Government Collections Officer Kevin Northrup began calling me day and night. I was becoming distraught. Mr. Northrup finally explained that the Department of Community Services was claiming

in 1992. I told him I didn't received my Canada Pension until 1995

letters, and they referred me back to the Liverpool Social Services
office. The information and name they were using for me was all wrong. I

I called my new MLA Vicki Conrad , for whom I worked so hard to get elected. I was a worker for her campaign and served as a Candidate's Poll Representative on Election Day for her, so I believed she would help me. All I wanted was a voice to help guide me in the right direction. She never returned my calls. I realized that my son and I were on our own. No one kept their promises to help and there was no justice to be found! I prayed for an answer. I even contacted the Social Services ombudsman, Monica McKinnon, and she was unable to help me. There was neither reasonability nor any help for me. I prayed night after night to God that help would come to my son and his friends and myself. After two years the fight still continues, and still no answers in sight.
This is one of the worst situations my family and I ever had to face. I

All this happened just because I tried to make our community a better place! I have cried many tears and been down on my knees praying to my Lord and Savoir Jesus Christ for good people to stand up and fight for our Rights and Freedoms and Justice. I pray that the bullies will stop hurting us and be ashamed for their actions. As a mother I cry to the Canadian people to please help us. We only have the truth to tell you! I am one older lady who taking a step of faith for Justice and Fairness in her community!
Freedom of speech is the concept of being able to speak freely without censorship. The right to freedom of speech is guaranteed under international law through numerous human rights instruments, notably under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights, although implementation remains lacking in many countries. The synonymous term freedom of expression is sometimes preferred, since the right is not confined to verbal speech but is understood to protect any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used.
