I think that the news has a problem with how they transmit politics. They also seem to have trouble with falsely representing something or someone in a certain way that is completely not how they should be represented. Finally, I think that the news has some problems with fact checking their information.

My ideal way to attack a problem in the world would be to start off solo to get as much information about it as I can, and then I would look to other people for help or for verification to see if there is another side to the coin that I have not looked at.

When a flood happens today, a huge monetary cost is involved and insurance claims are usually demanded by the victims so they can start rebuilding what was lost. However, a lot of times, the government response to those insurance claims can be very long and that is a problem. On October 23rd, 2017, CBC News published an article written by Sabrina Marandola talking about a Laval woman that has been waiting since last spring to get her response from the government about her insurance claim.

The west Island floods that hit last spring are still affecting the victims to this day. An article published on October 7th by CTV news talks about how experts from around the world were meeting together to talk about the flooding while the victims of the flooding are still mad at the government for their intervention. Looking at this disaster, I have found a non-profit organization that can help the victim or the area. It is called the West Island Assistance Fund.

With all the seemingly apocalyptic natural disasters occurring everyday around the world, we sometimes forget to look in our own backyard – even when, in the case of the BC wildfires, nearly 400,000 hectares of our backyard has been destroyed as of August 16th, 2017. Fires have raged throughout the province and surrounding areas since March and have put infrastructure and human life at risk, as well as consumed vast quantities of natural resources we as a country depend on.

I must say living in this century is coming out very difficult in many ways. Especially, to the most outspoken of us, the ones that try to make their best to express not only their beliefs but also to give us ,the population, the right to evaluate situations by having almost all the facts possible to be given. Yes, the journalists. Who are being mistreated all around the world in this right instant.
