The focus of our petition is less about hurting Lululemon and more about helping women. Our goal isn't about bringing Lululemon down, or forcing them to sell merchandise they don't want to, it's about starting a conversation that will open the eyes and minds of so many people who insist on judging a person's level of health by their weight.
I had the pleasure of speaking with photographer David Jay about his ever-evolving The Scar Project (acronym for "Surviving Cancer Absolute Reality"). David's photographs are striking. Then I got an email from David last fall alerting me about Facebook's decision to ban photographs from The SCAR Project from being posted on the Fan Page.
Last week I started a petition on Change.org as an impulsive and disgusted reaction to Nova Scotia Justice Minister Ross Landry's announcement that he would not re-examine the investigation of the rape and subsequent suicide of Rehtaeh Parsons. In the end, the 400,000 plus people who signed succeeded in getting the Premier to act -- on Monday he announced an independent review of the original investigation.
