Voted the Most Ineffective Transgendered Support Group in Canada.

Monday, August 31st, 2015

Well it happened again, the Second Annual meeting of the 3 Originating Presidents of Gender Mosaic (Spanning 7 years) met on August 28 2015 at Monkeys Joes in Ottawa.

We talked, ate, had a white wine toast, reminisced old friends, and just caught up on each others current lives.

We spent some time discussing what has happened to Gender Mosaic and their was some discussion of trying to go back and help.

Wisely this was dismissed and a majority vote was reached, Gender Mosaic is the most Ineffective Transgendered Support Group in Canada.

As a result Gender Mosaic and the current Executive have been issued a Certificate by us to that effect.

Starting with Kelly’s illegal motion to have my Life Membership removed.

February 2010

Item 1-No outstanding expenditures.

Item 2-All members of the Executive were re-acclaimed.

Item 3-Kelly Ann put a motion to have Judy removed as a lifetime member and a vote of Yea was passed by the Executive.

Followed by the Amanda/Sophips only way out while reaping $133,000.00 in profit from their Spring Fling event, to declare all Life memberships in-valid but those that one could keep them for 3 months ..What’s that about ?

“Lifetime memberships.”
“Lifetime memberships never existed in the GM bylaws.”
“Special memberships are clearly defined as people who cannot afford to pay a membership.”
Previous executive did not have authority to issue lifetime memberships. The membership therefore concludes that lifetime memberships never existed (The membership never concluded and was not permitted to even vote) and as such the benefits of supposed lifetime memberships are null and void.”
The benefits of supposed lifetime memberships will therefore expire at the end of 2013.”
“The membership has the option to propose amendments to bylaws to create lifetime memberships or other modifications at any future general meeting.”
This item is not an item to be voted upon.”

The Membership where not permitted to vote and it was an edict of the Executive.

This is a group without direction and the present leadership ? of Janne Charbonneau, Kay Lockhart and Madeleine Grant do nothing to correct the failings of the former Executive.

 A group going nowhere without direction or purpose, I have been ask when I will stop the information trial on GM the answer is simple….when they do the right thing.

Transgender Day of Remembrance a Farce, look at who is doing the Hurting now.

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

The Transgender Day of  Remembrance was celebrated on November 20, 2012, by the Ottawa Police force, the Mayor and the Executive of Gender Mosaic.

At a ceremony held at the Ottawa police station.

The MetroNews organization published a photo of those involved as shown below, however it does not tell the whole story.

Police Headquarters to commemorate
Trans Day of Remembrance.

While they put on a good show the truth is they are the Ones Doing the Hurting.

Gender Mosaic has badgered members out of the group, harassed Lifetime members and even voided Lifetime Memberships – without due process, at the whim of a disgruntled Ex President.

In a recent statement, Group Founder Judy Kearns said, “I’m ashamed to have been such a large part of this group’s beginnings, looking at where it has gone”.

Kearns has been trying for some time now to have the Illegal motion put forth by the disgruntled Ex President reversed but the current Executive has refused, saying only that they will change the By-Laws.

Kearns has been talking to some members, although all members have been ordered by the Executive not to talk to her.

It appears some of the members are not happy with changes to the By-laws by Leadership that has and is shown such a disregard for them.

Kearns said, “I have had discussions with others who were unfairly treated by GM and a joint action is being considered.”

I’m in the process of creating a legal claim and blocking Gender Mosaic’s Incorporation on the grounds that they do not follow the By-Laws they have set forth.

Now, as Canadians try to have bill C-279 (a law to protect basic transgendered rights) passed to law, Canada’s Oldest Transgendered support group, Gender Mosiac, ignores their own Bylaws, already in place for 25 years.

I maintain that the action of the Executive voids their Bylaws completely.  One can not choose which laws they will follow and which ones they will not.

Gender Mosaic is now without rules or regulations as the money-hungry Executive ( Amanda, Sophia ) rule without limits and insure there are no Mediators – just Dictators.

Where will this end? As with all Dictators, there will come a time when they are kicked out  and Law and Order are restore.  I look forward to that day!

Until then, Gender Mosaic will continue to put forth the face of a support group while hiding the real truth of it’s operation.

The president ( Sophia ) and second vice-President ( Amanda ) continue to make money from their Spring Fling venture using Gender Mosaic to fill their pockets while systematically destroying 25 years of constructive support and help.

“I do not want to go ahead with legal action. But if they are willing to break and ignore there own By-Laws, even taking it as far as banning the group’s founder for speaking out against them, then none of the members is safe from the wrath of the GM Executive,” Kearns warned.

Bill C-389 the Greatest bill in Human History.

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

Gender Freedom

 

 **************** Update ****************

The bill is slated for debate at third reading on March 3, but what has become apparent is that there will be only one hour of debate instead of two, given that a vote was forced at report stage. As it stands, this would mean that a final vote would be on March 9 (the first Wednesday after the debate).

As of yet, Siksay hasnt had any discussions with senators about who would be willing to shepherd the bill through the Upper Chamber, but he says that may have to do as much with the availability of certain senators to champion the cause as it does interest in doing so.

A Conservative Senator Nancy Ruth has stated on the record that she will support the bill when it comes before the Senate.

 **************** Update ****************

It’s time to move.

The list below is of the Members of Parliament that have said NAY to bill C-389.

These are the target !

I request that we all send them letters, I have included a link to both French an English versions of this letter.

It is time for action, We have waited 20+ years to be declared Human beings under the law in the best country in the world, Canada.

I have sent out 50 letters this morning and I will continue, it’s postage free .

Most of our traffic comes from Canada but we a lot from the US, Great Britain and the rest of the world.

The world is watching this very closely and what happens here will shape the world around us.

So I implore all of you to speak to those in power, this will be one of the most pivotal Moments in Human History.

English letter.

French letter.
