Defend Councillor Lisa Robinson from Pickering City Council
Update: The City of Pickering Censorship was offended due to the original banner image. Banner was updated to reflect this development. Councilor Robinson's pay was frozen for another 60 days, and there are other forces working towards removing her from elected office.
On October 23, Pickering City Council voted unanimously to freeze Councillor Lisa Robinson's pay.
Because she did her duty as a councillor by proposing the following 3 motions on behalf of her constituents:
- A motion to prohibit the flying of the pride flag on Municipal Property.
- A motion to restrict drag story hour events to adults only.
- A motion to have a female-only changeroom, a male-only changeroom, and a universal changeroom for families and others.
Robinson's motions aimed to ensure that the City of Pickering provides age-appropriate and non-sexual events for children, private spaces for women, and for the municipality to remain neutral from favoring a specific group of individuals over everyone else.
For merely presenting these motions to the city council and explaining them on her personal Facebook page, Robinson received a 60-day pay freeze after the Integrity Commissioner, Janice Atwood-Petkovski, and her fellow council members, specifically Mara Nagy, Maurice Brenner, and Linda Cook, found her proposed motions "unethical" because they considered them "homophobic" and"transphobic."
Councillor Cook even argued that drag performances are a form of "art" and are not hyper-sexualized events targeting children.
Furthermore, Mayor Ashe told Atwood-Petkovski that she did not have to answer Robinson's questions regarding her investigation into Robinson's actions.
Worse still, the council passed the "Legislative Amendments to Improve Municipal Codes of Conduct and Enforcement," which will allow the removal of a sitting member by recommendation of the integrity commissioner through the court system.
The LGBT mob is weaponizing the integrity commissioner to freeze her pay and even kick her out of office.
Through the councillors' actions, it becomes clear they do not respect that Lisa Robinson is just doing her job as an elected city councillor and representing her constituents' pro-family values.
The Integrity Commissioner, Atwood-Petkovski, and Pickering City Council appear to have forgotten that the Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects differences of opinion, including Councillor Lisa Robinson’s freedom to represent her and her constituents differing opinions within municipal government.
Stand with Councillor Lisa Robinson!
Sign the petition and demand Mayor Kevin Ashe, Integrity Commissioner Jancie Atwood-Petkovski, and the rest of the Pickering City Council to stop their persecution of Councillor Lisa Robinson.
