     Over a year ago, I started volunteering on a monthly basis with Greenpeace, the Phare de Longeuil working with homeless people, and the Santropol Roulant collaborating with elderly and xenophobic people. I always really enjoyed it, but recently, I came to realize that I wanted to engage myself into a greater commitment, something that would maybe not reach a lot of people, but that could have a greater impact on one individual. I wanted to meet and share with someone experiencing a different reality, or at least, more than I was used to.

When I tell people I am volunteering to help the environment, one of two reactions occur. Either they fully support me and encourage me or they tell me in despair that they don’t believe my actions will do much good in the grand scheme of things. The weird thing is, no one seems to be opposed to the idea of being environmentally conscious. This semester, I have had two main volunteer projects ongoing. The first was the collection of signatures for a petition that aims to preserve biodiversity. The second was to help the plight of the monarch butterfly which is facing extinction.

Achieving a health conscious diet has been increasingly popular over the last decade. People have been more critical of what foods they have been eating. A substantial amount of companies have been promoting their products to be healthy and high in nutrients and vitamins. They are defining their products as “all natural”; when in reality the ingredients in these products do not make an appropriate fit for their definition.  This was the case for Kashi, a company (owned by Kellogg’s) that is branded as “healthy” which sells cereals, granola bars and crackers.

Little girls from around the globe grow up watching Disney and aspire to be a future princess. I have myself grown up constantly watching Snow White, Aurora and Cinderella. The Disney franchise has a dominating presence in our children’s lives. This then leads for the franchise to have an immense influence on our children’s perception of what is right, what is wrong, and most importantly for young girls, what they should expect when they are older. Disney has provided a very distinct image of the female characters in their movies.

As published in the Montreal Gazette on March 5th, 2015 in an article called “Quebec renews $9-million investment to fight poverty” written by the journalist Geoffrey Vendeville, the Quebec government decided to renew its investment of 9 million against poverty but also social exclusion in the city of Montreal. They first wanted to reduce that budget but after many discussions they decided to give it again this year. Last year, this amount of money helped an estimation of 350,000 people in need.

The Defi Sportif is a big event that takes place during 7 days in Montreal every year in April-May. There are 14 sports and the city welcomes more than 5 000 handicapped teenagers from everywhere around the world. There more than 1 200 volunteers to help for the concretization of this project every year. The organizations need people volunteering in many places such as the airport, hotels around Montreal and most of them are the principal place where almost all sports are, at the Centre Sportif Pierre-Charbonneau in Montreal.

Education Debate This “Super-post” will be about the education in Quebec in comparison with the education in USA.
