A Solution to the Abandoned and Rabid

English

As a citizen of Montreal, Quebec, I do not come across many stray animals and it always comes as a shock to me when I see the abandoned cats and dogs in places that I have visited such as; Cuba and Greece, which always leaves me feeling a pang in my heart. The article, “Animal Welfare: Why Dogs Are a Development Issue” written by Anna Leach and published to The Guardian on May 2nd, 2014, addresses the issue about stray animals.

This article discusses the impact the Canadian Government has on helping endangered species and unfortunately it does not look good. Canada has a 2-step process for protecting endangered wildlife.

Mackerel, Management, and Uncertainty

English

Globally, fisheries have been experiencing crises as a result of an increase in the number of boats actively exploiting fish stocks, and a resultant decrease in the size of fish populations. An article that I read recently touches on this subject and specifically addresses the state of Atlantic Canada’s mackerel fishery. The article, titled “mackerel fishery closed unexpectedly, leaving some fishermen short bait: P.E.I.

Saving Tuna

According to an article about the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) meeting in Portugal, Canada has made “the right decision” over fishing quotas. The ICCAT is charged with the conservation of tunas and tuna-like species in the Atlantic Ocean and its adjacent seas.
