Compared to all other federal parties, the green party shows the most interest in improving the healthcare system including family doctors, treatment in rural areas, and health research.

As a Team Canada fan and an athletic girl myself, the Olympics are very important to me and Pierre de Coubertin’s Maxine, ‘’the important is to participate’’, inspires me a lot. Unfortunately, nowadays, it seems like the Olympic spirit has now become more about politics and economic decisions… Brazilians are known to be optimistic no matter what.

Since a few decades, we started to be preoccupied by climate change, as we began to understand that a radical change in our daily habits might be the only solution to protect our future.

In a world where being vegan has now become trendy, some of us are questioning meat consumption and as always, we face the eternal moral dilemma between eating meat or not. Despite our heritage  of proud Canadian producers,  it seems like we are starting to change our consumer's habits: according to a Globe and Mail article, the profit margins in the food industry dropped by nearly 1% this year.

You are lying in the hospital bed, weak, in pain, knowing that there is nothing left for you than to just wait. Wait for death to come to you. Would you want the option to end your suffering there?

As most of you, I've seen the image of Aylan, only three years of age, lying on a Morrocan beach. This powerful image, summarizing the cruelty of the inhumane reality of the Syrian migrants, made me realize how lucky I was. But what about the migrants from the others countries, the ones in the shadow of the Syrian crisis? This entry is dedicated to them, as I'll review a "New-York Times" article on the Iraqis migrants.
