A growing issue in today’s society is the vast amount of stray animals on the streets. Many of these animals are victims of abuse and of irresponsible ownership. They have been neglected and abandoned, which begs the support of the community to help find a solution to this issue.

The article, "Hawkesbury Cat Lover on Mission to Battle Feline Overpopulation Crisis" written by Angelica Montgomery and published to CBC News on March 12, 2017 addresses the vast potential amount of stray cats.

As reported by Amanda Holpuch last July 21st 2016 in the Guardian, another act of racism was made by the police. It is not the first time this last year police officers in America have opened fire on black unarmed men. Charles Kinsey, who is a behavior therapist in a group home was sitting by the street with an autistic patient when a police sped out of no where and brought a gun in their direction.

One of the correspondents for this newspaper is Tom Phillips who is stationed in Beijing and continues to provide readers with articles addressing international matters.
