Défi de la Charte printemps 2021: audience finale

Dear friends!

Happy September! Before discussing my new projects with the Ontario Justice Education Network, I would like to say a word about our flagship project of the past school year: the first 100% French Charter Challenge!

As you know, the project was a tremendous success. 391 students representing 28 schools from across the province participated. 76 completed the project and submitted a factum, the state of the art brief that is used at the Ontario Court of Appeal.

You can find more information about the program here: https://ojen.ca/fr/program/defi-de-la-charte

The finalists were Camille Gilbert from Renaissance School in Aurora and Conrad B. Piché from Saint Charles Garnier School in Whitby.

The final was judged by Justice Thorburn of the Ontario Court of Appeal, Taylor Wormington, Clerk at the Ontario Court of Appeal and Sarah Gagnon, Clerk at the Ottawa Superior Court of Justice.

The panel said they were “very, very impressed” with the finalists. Madam Justice Thorburn said it was "rare that we have such strong litigants". The judges placed particular emphasis on the oral skills of the two finalists, on the excellence of the organization of the briefs, on the relevance of the examples used and on the creativity of the argumentation.

Madam Justice Thorburn said she has tried a number of mock trials over the past 15 years, in English or French, in person or by teleconference, and this was unequivocally one of the best.

You can watch the hearing here: https://lnkd.in/e3ERQ3rW

In addition, you can read the blog posts in which our finalists described how they lived this experience:

You can also download their briefs here: https://ojen.ca/fr/program/defi-de-la-charte

Finally, you can discover our new francophone Youth Leadership Team here: https://lnkd.in/eQKBb_dX

These amazing young people are already working hard to make the second francophone Défi de la Charte even better than the first.

Stay tuned!

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Traditions are narratives which become accepted as facts because they are repeated often enough. We don't have to celebrate Christmas but, no matter how much evidence there is against celebrating it, we can't help celebrating it because it became a traditional narrative and traditional narratives trump everything. But is it so bad? When you think about it, everything, good or bad, is a traditional narrative: money, property, marriage, love, friendship, human rights and even science. There is no indisputable evidence that proves that any of these concepts exist. So instead of being preoccupied by what is "right" or "wrong", why not continuing to think in terms of "good" and "bad". It is no less real and has the advantage of making life more simple. But what we need to recognize is that what is good for us can be bad for our neighbour and vice versa. So let's live according to our own values but let's let the others live according to theirs. That's what Unity in Diversity is all about.

Hello my friends,

I hope you are all well.

I have the pleasure to announce you that I will be running to be elected a UNIVERSITY-ROSEDALE delegate for Alvin Tedjo in the upcoming Ontario Liberal Party Leadership Election Meeting on Sunday, February 9th.

Why do I support Alvin Tedjo?

Don't get me wrong, it's not that the other candidates are weak. No matter who wins, they'll be a great leader and I'll be happy to work hard to help them beat the Doug Ford Conservatives in the next Provincial elections.

But Alvin brings to the table what I value the most in politics: the courage to challenge the partisan status quo.

A father of three children who are all attending Catholic schools. Alvin is a proud practicing Catholic. Yet he plans to make public Catholic schools secular and open to everyone. For students, this change would mean the convenience of attending their closest school and less time on the bus. For teachers and early childhood educators, it would mean smaller class sizes, availability of more resources and the freedom to teach in any publicly funded school.

This change that politicians from all stripes deem impossible is highly recommended by all experts. According to Charles Pascal, a former Ontario Deputy Minister of Education and professor at OISE: “Providing Catholic education with public money is an anachronism waiting to be brought to an end by a courageous Queen’s Park legislature.”

Quebec, Manitoba and Newfoundland and Labrador have already done this. It’s time for Ontario to make a change and stop spending precious education dollars to maintain twice as many school boards as we actually need.

But that's only the icing on the cake.

Here's what really matters.

Alvin wants to see massive changes to our child care system.

Childcare has become so unaffordable that 80 per cent of Ontario families with children under four years old cannot afford the cost of licensed child care. There are only enough licensed spaces to accommodate 23 per cent of kids under the age of four. This is just not good enough. Many families are paying mortgage-level fees to access licensed childcare, and many more families can’t afford childcare at all.

High-quality universal licenced childcare can support better education outcomes for school aged children, improve social cohesion, take pressure off the family budget, and above all else, boost Ontario’s economy by giving families, and particularly women, the option of returning to the workplace sooner, leading to increased economic productivity as well as additional tax revenues for the government.

The consensus among experts and economists is that for every dollar invested in quality early childhood education, there is a $2.40 return to the economy.

A study by Deloitte estimates that by addressing the wage gap, Ontario government revenues from personal and sales tax could increase by $2.6 billion. The same study also estimates that government spending on social assistance, tax credits, and child benefits could decrease by $103 million, due to the projected increase in families’ income.

Alvin also plans to implement the Basic Income pilot program that was in place when the Liberal government was defeated.

Fighting poverty isn’t a partisan issue, at least it shouldn’t be. And it’s not an idea owned by progressives either. There have been nearly 500 studies on basic income, including pilots in Ontario and around the world.

Ontario’s Universal Basic Income would add over $10 billion to Ontario’s economy, create up to 80,000 jobs, and save the Ontario government hundreds of millions of dollars in administration costs and red tape. UBI grows the economy and unlocks opportunity for those stuck in the poverty cycle.

This basic income would replace programs more difficult and expensive to administer, like Ontario Works and ODSP, while retaining additional benefits and supports for people with disabilities. This brings dignity to our system, so people don’t need to justify the need for food, clothing, or shelter every two weeks.

The benefits of a universal basic income are well established. It provides a safety net for workers who lost their jobs that is less expensive to administer and easier to access than our current system.

In all these issues, Alvin never take the easy partisan road, by promoting ideological narratives that appeal at the gut level to Liberals.

Instead he choses to focus on evidence based policies meant to improve dramatically the way our Province functions.

Hugh Segal, an intellectual giant within the Progressive Conservative movement, has endorsed Alvin.

It speaks volumes about what Alvin is setting out to do.

He wants change at just about every level. Not change for the sake of change but change to bring about a society that meets the needs of everyday people.

I believe it's something worth fighting for.

I hope you'll join me in this new exciting adventure.

Take care.

Pignon looks at the world as an outsider and Simpson conveys, primarily through his expressive face both the wish that Pignon has to belong and the melancholy that he never will be accepted. Simpson gives a performance to cherish and any lover of theatre, French-speaking or not, should make sure to see him in a role that he has made his own.

Behold our 'world class city' this morning! The 'stand back' sign is ironic in many ways! John Tory has been elected to fix our transit system. Yet fares are still going up, service is going down and we're now dangerously close from complete gridlock. Yet our Mayor felt entitled to fly to Los Angeles to attend the Oscars. Because you know, priorities...

The subway this morning, AFTER most of the people have left the station to take shuttle bus or to walk to work. Please note the 'stand back' sign. Funny eh? You know what else is funny? This happened BEFORE the first snow flakes fell. Do you imagine what would have happened without relief shuttles? John Tory has been elected to get Toronto moving again. And he felt entitled to attend the Oscars?

Why we should study consciousness

Philosopher John Searle lays out the case for studying human consciousness -- and systematically shoots down some of the common objections to taking it seriously. As we learn more about the brain processes that cause awareness, accepting that consciousness is a biological phenomenon is an important first step. And no, he says, consciousness is not a massive computer simulation.
