Hey everyone, my name is Julie, and although i don't live in Peterborough, i have a question.

I've got a date with a nice girl whom has just moved to the area.
she's actually more south than peterborough, and i was wondering if anyone knows of any interesting date-worthy places in ajax i could research.

we're both in our early 20's, and i'm also wondering if there's any pool halls in ajax.

thanks in advance for any advice!

Gay/Lesbian Speech Study

The Linguistics Department at the University of Toronto is conducting experiments to investigate the phonetic characteristics of gay/lesbian and straight speech.

Participants will be recorded performing several speaking tasks: reading a word list, reading two short passages, viewing and describing a short silent film, telling about an interesting event in their life, and pronouncing various utterances at different pitches.

Because of the nature of the research, we need to know if you are gay/lesbian or straight. Your identity and privacy will be protected.

You must:
Be between the ages of 18–35 years
Be a native speaker of Southern Ontario English
Have no speaking or hearing difficulties

You would be paid $10.00 for participating. The recording takes about 30 minutes.

To sign up for this experiment or for further information, please e-mail us at gl.sounds@utoronto.ca

For the Canadians in here

Just passing this info along...
If you sign i would consider adding the mention that it should not be limited to genital surgery...

Dear Friends and Allies,

It is our firm belief that until the Canadian Federal Government adds SRS as a needed surgery to the Canada Heath Act, we the transexual people will continue to recieve sub standard health care.
Far too many people in positions of power feel that having one`s genitals match their interanl gender to be cosmetic.

Please read and sign the petition so that we may show the Feds that we are real people, with real voices.

Please pass this around, the more people that see this, the better we are.

Thank You

CALL TO ARMS: SRS Still Not Covered

Ontario Liberals -- Sex change left uncovered CALL TO ARMS

We must fight the injustices being perpetuated by the Ontario Liberals!

The Honourable George Smitherman, Minister of Health and Long Term Care for Ontario, has attempted to re-instate funding for sex reassignment surgery. The medical and psychological professions have concluded that sex reassignment surgery is medically necessary. Mr. Smitherman is to be congratulated and supported for attempting to right an injustice committed by the former Progressive Conservative governments (both under Ernie Eves and Mike Harris.) OHIP stopped funding sex reassignment surgeries, effective October 1, 1998. [1]

The Ontario Human Rights Commission has determined that Progressive Conservative government acted in a prejudicial manner when the government de-listed the sex reassignment surgery. [2]

However, "senior Liberals" have blocked the re-instatement, claiming that there is no money in the budget for sex re-assignment surgery. [3]

The cost of the sex reassignment surgery cost OHIP an average of $150 000 per annum. Yet, there has been no reduction of the billions of dollars afforded to treat smoking-related illnesses. [4]

We must not allow the government to continue to discriminate against us! Contact your Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP)! [5]

Contact your Member of Parliament (MP)! [6]

Write to the editor of papers! Most importantly, WRITE Dalton McGuinty, Premier of Ontario! [7]

Do it NOW!

If you have grounds (and you do, trust me) for registering a human rights complaint against the government of Ontario for their mistreatment of you, a transsexual, then file the complaint! Don't delay! [8]

In your correspondences, make sure to cover the following points: Support the Honourable George Smitherman, Ontario Minister of Health and Long-Term Care. [9]

Support the re-instatement of all aspects of the Harry Benjamin International Gender Dysphoria Association's Standard of Care for the Treatment of Gender Identity Disorders. [10] This includes not only the sex
reassignment surgery, but also the adjunctive therapies. This includes psychologists, psychiatrists, electrolysis, Adam's apple removal, voice training (or surgery), hysterectomies, breast surgeries, facial surgeries plus ALL other necessary treatments.

We need to stuff McGuinty's office with letters and emails demanding that he reinstate full OHIP coverage for ALL aspects of care for Gender Identity Disorder. He needs to understand that his read of public opinion on this is decisively wrong.
