I am getting ready to go to court. I will go with Ruth Adria to the court and see what the system does with her case. I am not optimistic as I am fully cognizant of the bully boy and bully girl work of the GOA and their intimidation efforts with reference to citizens.
I do believe it is important for human rights activists such as Ruth Adria of the Elder Advocates of Alberta Society to speak for seniors and for lawyers like Mr. Garber to help out. It is significant work. All of us will become seniors one day. Do y'all want to endure the lack of rights that is yours as a senior?
Speak for the seniors as Ruth is doing. She is doing this entirely out of her own costs. She is working hard every day to advocate for our most vulnerable citizens in AB.
She is doing the work that the GOA will not do and will never do.
Why? Because spin and surface performance for short term goals is always the work of politicians and no political party is prepared to do the hard ongoing work required for long term planning in health care, continuing care, the mental health system and education. I guess it will be our human rights champions who will do this work for us.

10TH ANNUAL HUMAN RIGHTS AWARDS: AN EVENT THAT RECOGNIZES LOCAL HUMAN RIGHTS HEROES
December 5, 2016
Edmonton, December 1, 2016 − The John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights invites the media to join them for their 10th Annual Human Rights Awards and the launch of Ignite Change 2017: A Global Gathering for Human Rights on December 11th, 2016, from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM at the ATB Financial Arts Barn (10330 84 Ave NW).
Held in commemoration of International Human Rights Day, these awards are meant to recognize those in our community who are actively promoting, fulfilling, protecting or educating on human rights, and making our communities a place where all belong, are included and able to participate. Chief Commissioner Marie-Claude of the Canadian Human Rights Commission. Mdm. Marie-Claude Landry, Ad.E. will be the event’s guest and keynote speaker.
Every year awards are given out to recipients, who are local human rights champions who are building Edmonton as a human rights city. This year however we will be awarding our first winner from outside of Edmonton in our efforts to recognize Albertans making an impact. This is followed by the Gerald L. Gall Award for an individual who has made an outstanding contribution and has demonstrated excellence in the protection and promotion of human rights in Canada.
Renée Laporte, a Human Rights Champion recipient in 2015, explains what the award means to her, “When you are an advocate, you face stigma and discrimination. You feel the hate marginalized communities face, and that drives you to work harder to see them have their rights upheld.” She was recognised for her work of over a decade as an educational assistant, inclusion innovator and pioneer in fostering high risk young women.
This year’s awards recipients are
Robert P. Lee
Gerald L. Gall Award 2016
Paula Kirman
Human Rights Champion 2016
Ruth Adria
Human Rights Champion 2016
Kristina De Guzman
Human Rights Champion 2016
Roy Pogorzelski
Human Rights Champion 2016
The John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights envisions a world that manifests a culture of peace and human rights in which the dignity of every person is respected, valued and celebrated.
