Ashton Deroy writes: Belleville Ontario & Quinte West has a massive problem with Sexism. This isn’t a fact I need to back with stats, because it is just innate common knowledge from within the community. Sexual harassment in the workplace isn’t so much a rarity here as it is a common occurrence from within the workplace. In my Sustainability proposal I did outline how Sexist behavior isn’t so much being addressed in the community. As much as it is being embraced as a regular part of the work culture in Hawkin’s Cheesies. However it is not an exclusive issue to this company.

At Hinduja Global Services I witnessed my friend to be forced through arranged seating to be sat near a man who was not only a drug dealer! He was also trying to harass her for a pair of her panties. This is unacceptable! This should have never been allowed. Maybe if Hinduja Global Services in Belleville Ontario can’t commit to addressing sexism in the workplace they should lose the privilege to assign seating. 

I am now committed to calling out sexism. To start because this will be a radical shift for the culture of Bay of Quinte as well as Belleville Ontario. I am going to call out in the most radical fashion imaginable! I might be a pain in the neck about it, but it is going to happen. It is time to recognize this is a United Nations Sustainability commitment and I don’t consider changing sexist culture as a matter of free speech, I consider this a human rights issue! 

Not only sexism, but if I see Transphobia going forward. I am going to react! It is time Transgender people feel safer in our communities. Yet we continue to enforce culture of misgendering, back talking & bullying in our workplaces, charities & communities. If our municipal politicians are not going to address this. I will address these issues! I am seeing a lot of consistency with my opinions on the Federal level, but not provincially & not municipally & it is time for that to change.

 Commitment to call out racism. The reason I haven’t finished this blog is that I was still attending a college within Belleville Ontario that has a rather racist reputation. I am talking about Loyalist College. A place where there majority of people alienate our East Indian students. I am tired of aiding in environments where these potentially new Canadians feel less included & unwelcome. Personally anyone who comes to Canada to develop a skill & work is welcome in my books & I will no longer leave room for people to say otherwise. 

Racist Loyalist College

That picture is linked to a Google review link which widely associates Loyalist College with racism. It is something the college must work on if they are going to continue to be an attractive option for International students. 

This is a personal commitment I will continue to use in my educational, professional and leisure pursuits. I will be on social media & out about connecting with marginalized members of the community and talking to them about their concerns. Then I will come to this high traffic Independent Belleville website & I will start giving the real news of the people of progressing these problems. Through my tag research & website statistics, I have learned I have a presence in this community. This is a presence I fully intend to use for the better. 

Commitment on abortion: This will continue to be an political topic I support not reopening. I will strive to censor pro-abortion groups or defame people associated with these groups. This is a division I will not compromise on! It is women of my income level who require unrestricted access to these services. Not the wealthy moralistic controlling members of society who are oppressing in my class & whom I continue to loathe! 

Instagram Statement: Call out #Sexism -It is apart of our Sustainability pact with the United Nations. – #BayofQuinte & #BellevilleOntario can not continue #Sexist culture – It is time to change sexism & sexual harrassment in the workplace. Much like I saw working at #HawkinsCheesies , #hindujaglobalservices , #Spdata , #Concentrix

Why I call myself a Socialist?

Ford Says

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamilton/ford-hamilton-destroyed-socialists-1.5348697

Ashton Deroy Writes: Okay no one looking at Political News ever should be like, “Doug Ford is right about the economy in Hamilton. It is the fault of Socialists & Liberals that the economy had once declined.” Hamilton is one of those lucky cities that has had the Federal government promoting investment in Hamilton as well as the Provincial government. Lucky them, really. For all you Conservatives that don’t understand the economics you preach to us lefties about, please remember Aggregate Demand or AD measures the output of the economy.

To calculate AD you need to look at, C + I + G (X-M) Meaning economies are determined by Consumer spending, Investment, Government spending. Then you also add the result of subtracting your Imports from the value of your Exports. There if you dropped out of college you, you got a taste of economics. One of the factors involved in that formula is government spending, which plays a massive role in Canada’s Economy. With the Provincial and Federal government both investing time & resources in that section of the economy, it actually makes a lot of sense that the economic output would increase. This proves even more how I am like a Socialist because economics is a Social Science & Socialists use a mix of Social Sciences & Philosophy to make up our executions.

The reason I am talking economics before the main topic is because there is a wrong perception Socialists don’t even have a basic understanding of Economics. Socialism is the system that builds on top of Capitalism, not in spite of it. If you are a radical Socialist know that I do not share your views of eliminating a system of cash, capital and trading labor for cash. Now let us talk about why I call myself a Socialist. It has to do with my usual wage status, the point of my life that I have been stuck at & the rise of food + housing insecurity.

“Announcement, a cousin of mine committed suicide. Hung himself in a barn.”Ashton Deroy.

I had not even considered Socialism an identity option until I heard Doug Ford complaining about it on mainstream news. As you can see from the article above that is something he still does as a part of his parliament strategy. My usual wage status, “SURPRISE!” is around minimum wage. That makes sense because minimum wage makes up 44% of jobs in Ontario, I think the more data you add the more that stat grows. So I can’t exactly work my way to prosperity. Most jobs actually put me at quite a bit of a disadvantage. When did working become a way of sustained poverty for the majority? So I did the math from an economic standpoint. Wouldn’t it make more sense to operate a more honest economy? What do I mean? I mean heightening minimum wage & eliminating jobs that sustain poverty actually. It would be a painful transition but it would turn labor in to a sensible lifestyle. The average household income is going down at alarming levels, while household debt has gone up dramatically as well. That is the cause of a lot of inflation. If we take a bit of bitter pain, we can make more sense of the economy.

Getting stuck, was never how I thought my twenties would be. Yet here it is. With my level of student debt, it is going to be a long time before I think about leveraging the kind of debt you would for a home, a car & etc. It just is not in the near future. Maybe, if we look at making existing student loans more favorable we could heighten consumer spending though? I am certainly not the only one stuck at this point. Bad news to, if my generation continues to live stuck with nowhere to go… We won’t pay enough consumption taxes or buy enough products to make sustain our economy. We are already seeing the leave of automotive manufacturing as more people continue to rely on transit & in my neighborhood walking everywhere.

The last point is the rise of housing & food insecurity. It has to be dealt with. These things are how you create an uneasy society with mass suicides, violence & distrust of government . Canadian society has an issue of heightened crime, homelessness & drug use! In Toronto that heightened crime often actually looks like poor people directing crimes towards wealthier people. I am referring to crimes like the shooting at Yorkdale mall in 2018. When you have nothing to lose? That is the best time to commit an insane crime! The scars of poverty are for life. So instead of spreading fear lets create changes that make us less uneasy. I think what I have stated proves that I call myself a Socialist somewhat out necessity. Society needs to smarten up and put quality lives over soaring profits or we can start to see a society that eventually looks just as uneasy as places like Hong Kong & Chile.

My idea to clean up Quinte West water & natural environments.

Waste in Quinte West water.png

Taxing large plastic contributors to pay for waste removal from our water & parks.

In August of 2018, I began posting on my Instagram and personal blog about an issue Quinte West had in regards to waste getting in to our natural water by Centennial Park. It has since been one year since I have tried bringing this to to the attention of the public & Mayor Harrison. Now we are writing this letter to an MP to create some kind of community responsibility in regards to the destruction of our waters. It is my belief that we need to either work towards banning plastics & fast food containers that are not biodegradable. What I want to achieve? I want to get our town to fund waste removal from the natural waters & surrounding areas.

Consumers of convenience store foods & fast food are some of the least Eco-friendly consumers on the planet. Every year massive amounts of containers, packaging and bottles are found destroying our natural habitats & water. In Quinte West I have photographed evidence of damage to our environment near centennial park, & in our Bay with the culprits being common convenience goods. I have also provided picture evidence to show that Quinte West’s volunteer waste removal efforts are not even close to enough aide. Which proves require a government collaborated executions to pay for waste removal efforts.

It is widely understood online that our town hosts some of the most wasteful industrial companies in plastics doing business in Quinte West. such as Nestle, other commonly high waste contributors such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Co & Metro Inc all sell goods within in Quinte West. I believe even if it requires creating a government paid execution for waste removals in public and natural attraction areas in Quinte West to try to reduce damage on our ecosystem. This is where we create  job removing unnatural waste from environments where it can impact fish & mammals.

Reference: https://www.conservationcouncil.ca/en/most-plastic-waste-in-canada-leads-back-to-these-5-companies/

I want to conclude saying we need to do something to impact our damage to our ecosystem. I think the answer is to create jobs removing waste from areas where it can impact the natural environment. I am sure we can contribute to paying for these jobs by creating a tax on the output of plastics from these companies. If we do this next year we can save our environment for the future.

Contact our MP at: neil.ellis@parl.gc.ca . Ask him to take action to maintain Quinte West waters.
