I have decided to do my volunteer work with an organism related to homelessness. After doing some research on the volunteer opportunities close by, I chose to contact the Accueil Bonneau situated in the old Montreal. This organism has as a goal to welcome any homeless person or anyone who is at risk of homelessness by daily journeying with that person in responding to his basic needs and helping him achieve a better quality of life and well-being. The work I did there was to serve the people who came to have a lunch during the second service of the day.

In the article called “Colby Cosh: The magic of ‘ending homelessness’ — and ending up with more” by Colby Cosh in the National Post on March 21st, 2016, the author comments on the state of homelessness in Canada, more particularly in Edmonton, Alberta. The main highlight is that this winter has been a very busy one for the homeless shelters, even if this winter was not as harsh as the previous years. Plus, the staff working in these shelters reported a 42 per cent increase in outdoor sleeping.

Accueil Bonneau is a foundation situated in the old port of Montreal, Quebec. The goal of this non-profit organization is to provide help to homeless people of Montreal. The kind of help available touches a lot of sectors. For example, they have a cafeteria service each day. Homeless can also go buy clothes a lot cheaper than in any other place in the Accueil Bonneau. Health services are also available However, I think that the most important aspect of this foundation is the fact that the usual volunteer can help the homeless by listening to them.

Since the first stories about the allegations of physical and sexual abuses by priests started to surface in the late 1980s in Canada, a lot of new cases started to appear in the news. A new case just came up in the Montreal Gazette but this time, it is about the compensation to a newly identified victim. In the article named Victims of Catholic brother will be compensated by Paul Delean, it explains that an out-court settlement has been made between the Catholic brother Jean-Paul Thibault of the congregation Frères de Notre-Dame de la Miséricorde and the victims.

One of the most controversial subject in the United States these days is the importance for the people to possess a firearm. One of the reason of this issue is the uprising in mass shooting in schools and public places. In an article from the Montreal Gazette by Michael E. Miller published on January 26, 2016, the reason for the debate is well depicted. On January 21st 2016, Dane Gallion, a 29 years old man from Seattle went in a restaurant, drank a 22-ounce beer and afterward, went to a cinema to see 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.

A huge controversy in the western world is, uber vs. cab. Uber is an alternative to calling a taxi cab. Its an app that you can download that gives you the ability to call a driver at your fingertips. Instead of paying the driver at the end of your trip your credit card is connected so you can get right out. The fee is even have that of a cab. Ultimately uber is convenience at its finest, which is only bad for one group of people, taxi drivers. Recently in Toronto a protest has been going on trying to ban uber, ran by cab drivers.

The article which I’ve chosen is not the one which stand out most, or is most intriguing. Instead I chose which I believe to have the most importance. The author discusses the issue of masculinity in the media and how it is portrayed. To back up their point the author simply turned to national polls where 10-17 year olds were asked questions about programs they see. Over half of the sample TV shows reported violence, 74% of males in programs displayed behaviors such as ridicule, lying, aggressiveness or defiant acts.
