This webpage is created by me, paid for by me and it takes a lot of work to do this you probably never work harder than when you are trying to save your own life.
At this point, there’s nowhere else to go.
My name is Shelley I'm a private citizen and Tundra is my real life service dog. This is a webpage I created in March 2018 and Published in April 2018. I guess you could say Tundra inspired me to create this outlet . I originally started this page to post photos of Tundra my service dog and all the life saving tasks she provides for me but its not possible to post photos of all the tasks she provides for me because most of the essential tasks she provides are never seen in public nor do I feel like I need to share my personal and private life with people I don't know, having said that here I am, why should I feel ashamed of what other people did to me, but I assure you I am because that's the way I have been made to feel within a system that was supposed to do the opposite. On that I'm not alone.
The services Tundra provides to me in my everyday life is essential , she saves my life everyday.
Know the difference.
As I have said on my art website my career is a visual artist. Fittingly,sexual harassment was the beginning of the end of my career, my career, I often wonder if I didn't reject the sexual advances where would it have gotten me ? A bought women. A muse. Not my cup of tea. When I was a little girl dreaming of being a great artist, it never crossed my mind. On all the art excursions I have taken with the exception of two I was always treated as a equal and with respect, the sexual harassment seemed most prevalent when trying to sell my art. I paint to sell my art not keep it. That's why the word career not hobby. It's interesting though as I have discovered people like to abuse artists. If you sell lawn mowers you have a business, if your an artist and you sell art, somehow were different. You have a business and I'm just a lost in space dreamer with no real clue about real life. I have no idea what invoicing is or book keeping, inventory or supply management. No idea what advertising is, I don't work 8 hour days I work 16 hour days I do it all for free, so I can pay myself with pixi dust at the end of each week and that will pay all my bills forever, canvas and paints are free to all artists and frames don't cost money we pay the suppliers fairy dust, and paintings just happen. I'm totally crazy. Isn't that what every women is who doesn't do what a abuser wants them to do.
Tundra as well as myself have been very badly exploited. I doubt this will do much for my art career, but it's part of it and that is the truth. How will I be remembered I sometimes wonder. Who will care what I said or did and why do you care what I say or do now.
Nothing on this webpage about me is for sale and nothing is to be to be exploited. I request you respect this statement.
After abuse you go through safety planning, here's the truth, you can take all the measures you want but if someone is going to hurt you they will do it anyway.
Another thing is online safety. This webpage isn't here becasue I want it to be. It's here because I have to be here.
That is the truth, that is not a choice, its survival.
Unless you've experienced these sort of abuses it'd be hard to understand.
Who do you end up detesting more the people who abused you or the people who did nothing but could have. I've found both, its equal. I detest the people who did it and someday's, the people who didn't do anything other days. But the people who did it never had trust or confidence and the people who didn't do anything were the people who I was supposed to call so that makes them worse.
Speak out or suffer in silence. I'm not going to suffer in silence.
You can't stop abuse if you don't speak out.
I'm dedicating some of this site to information pertaining to sexual harassment and assault. Remember, essentials to survival - This shouldn't be one of them.
Sexual assault is ;
Illegal sexual contact that usually involves force upon a person or is inflicted upon a person who is incapable of giving consent.
Sexual harassment constitutes a violation of the right to protection of health and to safety in working conditions under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Women's Convention, the ILO Convention No. 155 (Occupational and Health) and the ILO Convention No. 161 (Occupational Health Services). CEDAW General Recommendation 19 also recognizes that sexual harassment may "constitute a health and safety problem."
Victims who have been marginalized don’t trust, that mistrust is even higher for those continue to face additional systemic barriers. In my opinion some of the reason why is, the criminal justice system from police to crown attorneys, justify abusers and criminalize victims.
I filed my Human Rights application Nov 30, 2016. I had to file another Human Rights complaint July 18, 2018 and this is going to a Merits hearing for my allegations of sexual harassment, harassment and other code grounds of discrimination leading up to, during and after the June 13, 2018. As of March 30, 2020 I've had one day of hearings so far, I did my best, couldn't have done any better than I did. Its going to take more than one day so await dates for the continuation. I still get discretely harassed even going though this process, makes it trying at the best of times.
They don't make your life easy, that's for sure.
This web page is a step I had to take and continue to take to enforce my code rights. canlii.org/en/on/laws
Money doesn't buy forgiveness, it doesn't undo what happen and it will never take away the pain, the fear and humiliation I felt, feel, or the mistrust and loss of confidence they have shown me I have every right to feel and will live with the rest of my life. I feel this website I created out of fear is serving as a public remedy to address the completely unacceptable systemic practices of discrimination .
I have no idea what it takes to change Institutional systemic abuse.
All I know for sure, is, I spoke up for myself because I care what happens to other people, that is the right thing to do.
The perception others have of me; I have no idea, the harassment has been so severe, they destroyed my reputation to myself.
They made me feel worthless, degraded, and indignant, what does it matter what anyone else thinks when I've been made to feel so worthless.
They have damaged my reputation substantially!
I felt I had no other option than to create a public website to try to save myself from extreme harassment, this resulted in me having to disclose things I would not have normally done if I had not been put in this position by the organizational respondent. My thoughts are my own.
A victim of domestic and sexual violence should not be put in the position in a public setting where they have to prove anything.
This isn't who I am, its what happen to me.
on July 11, 2016 while in the province of Ontario in Ontario Provincial Police jurisdiction, persons unknown to me entered my home illegally took control of all my property and had unfettered access to every piece of personal and private information a person could possible until March 2017. My service dog and I were left homeless, in shock and extremely fearful with no access to my own property including my clothing and my vehicle. Everything I owned.

This was not showing respect or giving dignity to a victim of sexual assault or sexual violence .

In addition, the Code prohibits creation of a poisoned environment. A poisoned environment is a form of discrimination and can arise from even a single incident. It may be created by the comments or actions of any person, regardless of his or her status. The comments or conduct do not have to be directed at a particular individual. Gender-based harassment is a specific type of sexual harassment defined as “any behaviour that polices and reinforces traditional heterosexual gender norms.” Human rights law clearly recognizes that sexual harassment is often not about sexual desire or interest at all. In fact, it often involves hostility, rejection, and/or bullying of a sexual nature. “Gender-based harassment.”
A person may be especially vulnerable to sexual harassment when they are identified by more than one Code ground.
