About me:

I am Alison, I am 18 years old and in my third and final year at Champlain College.I'm studying in Tourism Management because it connects to my biggest passion, travel. I like to think I'm caring, can make people laugh and quite honest.I can play guitar, ____ , and can remember company jingles better than anything I study for class. I would definitely like to improve my piano playing skills if i had time to put into it. What I hate about the world, its biggest problem is inequality. People not getting the same chances at an amazing life because of the color of their skin or even their gender. People who continue to push these problems, such as President of the United States, Mr. Donald Trump, are the real problem behind this and are whom we should try to stop to start fixing the world.

And it makes us realize that our great lakes are suffering and they are unbelievably important in North America.

According to a McGill article, “How much are we using?” The answer to that question is a lot. “The average Quebecer uses 400L of water per person, and, according to the Ville de Montréal, the average Montrealer uses 225 L of water per person.” The average Quebec uses more liters of water per person than the average Canadian overall who uses about 329 liters. These numbers could be reduced quickly if we were careful with our water uses.

This Forbes Article from September 12th 2017, written by Nathaniel Parish Flannery covers many topics, all somehow related to Trump's immigration laws and wall to ban central Americans to illegally immigrate to the country. Lack of opportunity, low economy and violence are pushing residents of these countries out of their homes on a search for a chance at a better life. Stopping immigration from these countries is letting these poor people in the worst situations and keeping them from being the best versions of themselves in a country where they have opportunities and a real future.

David Bell wrote for CBC News on August 30th 2017 about 3 police officers being blamed for kidnapping and assaulting a man who allegedly had important information on a subject that they were investigating. Other police officers say they are completely behind the three charged officers and defending them. The real problem here is that if the people charged for these crimes were not police officers, no one would support them like that and they would probably get in much more trouble. I believe this source is reliable because CBC news is a reliable news source.

Global News article written by the Associated press on August 28th 2017, explains how a man rushed inside a New Mexico public library and started shooting a gun in the air. Sadly, there has been 2 deaths and 4 injured. Shootings similar to this one are often reoccurring in America because of how accessible guns are. Although possession of firearms is legal mostly for protection in the States, sometimes they are used for the complete opposite. Just this month of August 2017, there has been 33 recorded shootings in America with over 45 deaths.
