We all get asked to sign petitions for various causes, but do they work? In some cases they act as polls and in that sense they do have influence. That this is perceived as true is perhaps the reason we continue to use petitions to try and change things we don't want to have happen. If they aren't effective, then at the least, we feel we've tried to act for change by.
I've recently been active trying to influence the Harper government to separate the seemingly dissimilar issues of economic recovery and how most of Canada's rivers are modified by various construction projects like dams, bridges and so on. The link between these two appears to be that fast-tracking construction projects will help the economy even if that means little or no consultation will happen with interested parties before construction occurs and that environment assessment will have to take a hit because, well, we need to act quickly and without unnecessary hindrances if we're to save this country from economic disaster, don't we?
I don't buy that logic at all. To my mind, that's the thinking that got us into the mess we're in. More of the same doesn't save the economy for me. So one of the things I've been doing is signing every related petition attempting to influence this issue. Facebook has a petition which, last week, had a goal of 1000 names. It has already gone past 1500 signatures which is really heartening. If you're on Facebook and want to add your name, please do so by clicking 'here'. If you're not on Facebook, but want to sign, click 'here'. Thanks for being influential!

my question is, can you tell me of any petitions that have worked when sent to the government?
Is there a list of actual victories or are we signing petitions in vain?

Above is an example where a petition has worked.
The important thing is to make the petition specific, about one discreet issue and to ensure that it is forwarded to the right person who has the authority to make decisions on the issue.
