Canada and the United States have certainly made strides forward with respect to gender equality. More and more women are entering the workforce and earning salaries that approach or equal what men earn. However, before we proudly pat ourselves on the back for a job well done, it is critical to understand the nasty aftermath of overt gender discrimination.

The case of the young native Makayla Sault, the girl who refused cancer treatment, raised a lot of debate during the last month. After her first month of chemotherapy, she (and her parents) decided to get on holistic medicine and leave chemo. Unfortunately, Makayla passed away.

For obvious reasons, this crisis has sparked an uproar within the International community, which is asking for an imminent intervention from outside countries.
