Hi

Hi, I did not know a lot about Multiculturalism before reading your post, and reading it made me think about how there are issues covered actually by muticulturalism. As you mentioned, there are issues in education and religion... I think raising awareness in this case is a great thing to do because there are not a lot of people aware of theses things. However, if I were you I would of compared this to another country with Canada, so we could of understood more the consequences of this thing in another country compared to ours. Overall, I think you have done an amazing job, with a lot of research and thinking, I am looking forward to reading some other posts you have made.

I think you had a great idea to go and help homeless people at Accueil Bonneau. Nobody chooses to live on the street, and I think helping the ones in need is a great thing to do. Especially in Canada, where winters are very cold, people struggle to survive in the extreme temperatures, and all the help they can get is the best for them. I also liked that you posted statistics in Canada of the number of people that are homeless and need help. However, I think you could of interviewed someone that commonly works at that specific place in order to get an even better perspective to the everyday life of an itinerant. You could of even asked a homeless person to describe their experience, it would have been very interesting. Overall, good job for your work!

It is amazing that you went to help the animals, I think more people should get involved in animal shelters, and be aware that there are some shelters that do not put down any animals no matter what. I did not know that, and I think there are other people that do not as well! Also, knowing that the SPCA Organisation is not receiving money from the government makes us realize that it takes people that volunteer and give donations in order that animals receive treatments. Great job and continue helping organisations like this.

I found this article very revealing about big cats. We do not usually consider having exotic animals in zoo's as a negative thing. It however is. There extinction is partly because of them all captured to be placed in a zoo, and also because of black markets. I assume that there are several associations that want to bring help to exotic animals such as big cats, in order to preserve them in our nature. Your article relates to one of my article itself, because my article is also about helping animals in the world. Moreover, it is about a couple that saves a lot of miserable dogs all around the world. Here is a link to my article:

Overall, I appreciated your article a lot, but I think you should of gone deeper, such as finding articles that are made by scientist to prove the evidence you have proven in your article. Nice job!

Since I am an animal lover, I think that your post is really relevant to my final volunteering project in a way. Your post is about how dieting can make a change for the environment and also in the lives of animals, because they do not eat what they are meant to eat in order for them to be healthy. I want to help animals to be healthy as well, but in a different way! I want to volunteer in an animal shelter to be able to give some love and also care to animals that do not have enough. I found your article very truthful, presenting us a lot of informations that people generally are not aware of when they eat meat. This helped me to see that we can help animals, and the environment at the same time, in several ways! Here's a link to a summary of an article I wrote, about how a couple in Toronto have a way to help animals that live in horrible conditions!

I found this article very interesting, because we usually see pornographic adds within USA product, and less from the Canadian ones. This is a very common place for teenagers, and it is a bad influence. I also enjoyed you actually showing us what an add from american apparel looks like. However, I think finding more evidence from another source, such as another place that sells clothes, to compare how American Apparel is pornographic. It would give another side of view and would give even more strength to your post.
Perhaps. it was a very good article, good job!

I found this article very constructive and true to mother all around the world. Talking about your own mother brings your summary more personal to you and it helps us understanding more how mothers do everything, because if one thing is true, it is that mothers never have a break. I'm a unique child, so I did not have a brother or a sister to play with. Instead, my mom would always come and play with me when I asked, she would always be there to take care of me. Facebook had indeed a great idea to start those wonderful collages!

Great choice of topic, apart from the economic and social issues, it would be really interesting a view on the political influence these groups may have and also the problem of bankers or people related to the banking system in helping these groups in all the money laundering operations. Also, what are the current and possible law enforcement measures against these groups would be a nice addition.

Can't wait to see this paper finished.
cheers

I found it very interesting to hear about Syrians in Canada, because we did not hear of them since December in the news. It is interesting to see there point of view instead of the panic a lot of Canadians felt towards Syrians, such as how the children were still traumatized of the war when they arrived here, you chose a great article to read about I found it very interesting! The source you linked is reliable because it describes what you talk about in more details and it is good to see how people are living in heel compared to us in Canada. The feature of a photo in your assignment is helpful to imagine how people were when they came to Canada.
Congratulations!!!
