The issue regarding this article is President Trump’s decision to bomb Syria and his sudden change of heart. Once he saw pictures of dead children he says his attitude towards Syria and Assad changed instantly. The media is applauding him for his change of heart, but this article argues that Trump doesn’t truly care. He says he was touched by the children being gassed to death, but still bans them from entering the country. It’s hypocritical.

You would like to think that mental health was taken seriously, wouldn’t you? For years, the idea of romanticizing mental illness has come to play and Dawnie Cheung explains more on the issue. She starts off by explaining how mental illness is hard to understand unless you’ve experienced it. She goes on to explain how mental illness was taught to her to be frightening and scary, although now in this generation, it’s viewed as normal and “cool” to have.

There has been a resurrection of a movement in the continent of North America, a movement that has evolved to become more violent than ever before. The return of white supremacist movement was reinforced by the president of the United States whose words could be taken to be like those of white supremacy beliefs and as such facilitate their movements. However, some people started realizing that the movement is completely wrong and have started to get out of that mindset.

How will the world function if bans and restrictions were put on the internet? This article by the New York Times highlights an issue that was brought to attention in 2015 under Obama's ruling, and the goal was to adopt regulations for high-speed internet. Major companies such as AT&T and Comcast believe that this will be worst service for everyone in the long run. The biggest concern that everyone has about this issue will that it will be a pay as you go type of access. It will also focus on two tiers, high-speed internet, and the opposite.

The debate on language has been on going in Quebec forever. For some reason, we can’t come to a conclusion that choice of language, shouldn’t be offensive in any way. But lately, the court/government hasn’t been very compassionate when asked if there could be more than one main language. In Quebec, the answer is always French. Not only have they removed all English from any title of stores or signs, etc. Now, they are telling us the way we should greet people. No more “Bonjour, Hi!” but simply “Bonjour”.

Migration is a movement that has blown up with the evolution of transportation, what would take months to years on boat 4 centuries ago, now would take at most 2 days. However, the current president of the United States, Donald J. Trump has a different plan for immigration in his country. He recently pulled out from the migration pact that was agreed upon with the former president Barack Obama. The migration pact stated that the participating countries would respect the rights of refugees and migrants and help them integrate into society.

The legalization of marijuana has been an important subject of discussion and argument in the past few years. Now that the plan for Canada is to fully legalize this drug all over the country, it seems that it might benefit more than one might think. Terry Reith, the author of this article, highlights all the advantages of turning an underground illegal industry into a legal one.

The issue presented in this case is about how kneeling during the National Anthem has always been about race and not about the American flag or the military. As the article mentions, Colin Kaepernick, the then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback started the protests. He stated to NFL Media that he will not stand in pride for a country that afflict people of colour. He started by simply sitting down at the three first pre-season games of the 2016 season, but in respect to army veterans like Nate Boyer, he agreed that taking a knee would be a more respectful posture.

I believe that cannabis is actually a product that can help people who are actually on "strong" drugs. Cannabis cannot really be conisered one of the "strong" drugs because its effects are actually nothing compared to those drugs. You say that there is some "unanswered" questions on cannabis but i think you need to do your reserch. In all drugs in the world, being advil, alcohol and even your cell phone all have cons. Any drug in the world comes along with cons, you just need to inform yourself in the pros. A product that can be used for medcine, cloths and more can really help our economy and criminal acts going on. For the driving issue, the system just needs to implement laws agaisnt driving while smoking just like alcohol has. I believe if alcohol and cigarettes are legal and are way more addictive and dangerous killing thousaunds each year, then why is a drug who hasnt killed one person illegal?

I agree with what youve pointed out about Trump being hypocritical. It is true that actions speak louder then words so, if Trump really did care about the Syrian children who are suffereing he wouldve done more then just having a "change in heart". If he really cared for those children, it is true that he shouldve dropped the Muslim ban and even at that do something more to help. I do belive it was a diversion and a way for him to gain respect but, in the end i believe Trump is still an arrrogant coward.

Canada isn't a laic for the simple fact that we still "belong" to England which is still a protestant country, so that makes us protestant, but I think that we are as laic as we can be, although our christian background will often clash with muslims and that is why they often get a bad rap, but the Canadian government will soon com to their senses and correct their obvious lack of respect towards these women

I certainly think that every country should act like Canada on that regard, adopting this type of mentality definitely makes me proud to be a Canadian, but we also have the biggest kill records of any country regarding high ranked terrorists, so are we really as pacifistic as we think we are? And if so should we still be proud of that?

I totally agree, but I can also understand why people in the USA would get mad about this, with that being said, football is just a game, but people still have the right to express to their opinion, couldn't they do that outside of the field? There has to b another way for footballers to protest than just kneeling during the national anthem

In this case, Spain is obstructing the freedom of the Catalonian people, which defines civil right on a basic level, so it is clear to me who is to blame here.

I believe that if weed would be legal and controlled by the state they would make it cleaner and less available to criminals who lace their marijuana with the stuff that make people sick, criminals are always going to find illegal substances so the best we can do is take their business away from them

Great article! But I think that freedom of speech should be given to everyone and shoudn't be denied to those who only share different opinion.

There no collaborative classes
