Our carbon tax just passed, now we accept these pipelines, it doesn’t make sense at all. The whole world is harvesting down 3.5 acres of forest every MINUTE. Canada requires companies to plant a tree for every cut, but you are not getting the same forest in return. Canada has 385 endangered species, the reason it that the best land won’t be converted to a protected area, it would be used for farming, forestry, and housing. But I will give Canada one thing they have recognised the risk we are doing to our environment.
Opposing solutions believe that their water rights entitle them to unlimited amounts of water for their corporations and products. But that is not the case if corporations continue to draw large amounts of fresh water that really belong to the people they will cause a major drought that will leave millions of people hungry. My solution is superior to those of corporations because they protect the ordinary citizens rights to water and stop the Estrada 5 greediness of corporations destroying our water system. It will tax and charge more for the water that is being drawn by corporations that make huge sales so that either the state is being
Congo is arguably among the poorest countries in the world. The SWEAT analysis criterion presents a feasible and accurate model for determining the level of poverty in countries. To start with, Congo has a significant problem with its sewage drainage. A report by the International Monetary Fund indicates that only 5% of the waste produces in homes reaches the sewer; the rest is discarded into the environment (2012). On the other hand, UNEP reports that only 26% of the citizens in Congo have access to clean water to drink (2011).
It is also known that Canadian citizens have the longest life expectancies in the world, higher than the United States of America by three percent. The one major difference between the Canadian health care system and the American health care system is that is that they have a privatized health care system. A documentary such as “Sicko directed by Michael Moore” demonstrates the crisis of American citizens without health care coverage. Canada’s universal health care system ensures those who cannot pay for health to not suffer, contrary to the Sicko
This was demonstrated through the enactment of the Canadian Fair Employment Practices Act, which prohibited an employer from discriminating his employees on terms of their race, national origin, colour, or religion. As of July 1st 1953, the widespread issue of discrimination in the workplace was finally resolved at a federal level, which helped Canadians to embrace diversity. This is important because all Canadian employers were no longer able to pay or treat their employees on account of a disposition they were born with. As a result, white supremacy in the workforce began to die down, and more immigrants and coloured Canadians were employed. Another widespread workplace issue that existed before 1956 was the significantly low pay women received.
Of the former, the answer appears to be no. If a concentration is defined by a neighbourhood with over 50% of residents identifying themselves as a person of Indigenous decent, only one such Canadian urban neighbourhood – in Winnipeg – would qualify (Peters, 169, 2010). Indigenous people are obviously not evenly distributed among urban neighbourhoods, as few ethnic groups are, but the lack of apparent segregation is a generally positive finding. In the most recent federal election, 2015, 10 people identifying themselves as people of Indigenous descent were elected to Parliament (Fontaine, 2015). Of these 10, 5 represent ridings which can be defined as rural, and 5 which are urban.
I support the penny being retired.The article “Should the Penny Retired” written by Toronto(AP) has many valid points on why the penny should be retired.It is such a nuisance to have pennies these days. No one will pick a penny if they see one on the floor or on the street. People nowadays don 't get excited if they see a penny.That is why I am supporting the retirement of the pennies. With me supporting the retirement of the penny I have some evidence on why the penny should be retired. One piece I have is in the article it states that it costs 11 million dollars to make pennies in other countries.
Money is the number one controlling factor of the world so, an economy is really important and in Quebec was doing poorly. Even before the FLQ and referendum, Quebec has been suffering;“In their own province, French Canadians as a group occupied the lowest rungs of the economic ladder. Their average incomes were lower, and unemployment remained a serious problem, with a much higher rate than that of the Anglo-Canadians, who controlled approximately 80% of Quebec industry. There were very few French-speaking people heading large corporations... All offices functioned in English. Citizens had to speak English in order to be served in many of the stores.
Fracking has many environmental impacts on the world we live in. We should strive to keep a sustainable living community for future generations. One issue about fracking that interests me is the environmental damage of the land and water. Fracking requires a large amount of land. Once you target the area you want to use for fracking, you have to cut down all of the existing trees and create roads for the trucks.
Just 32 percent of the Iraqi population has access to clean drinking water, and only 19 percent has access to a good sewage system (Unknown, 2015, p.1). People clean clothes, take baths, and drink from this water. The diseases spread quickly and cases of chronic diarrhea are becoming extremely common. Doctors are sure that the only way to solve this diseases is to provide potable water, but families can't afford a bottle of fresh clean water. Water shortage is slowly destroying the middle east by making diseases run wild, making it easier for extremist
Reservoir funding is an effective solution because if we spend billions on reservoirs we then have tons of alternate resources if one resources gets contaminated or deficient. Additionally, desalination; the removal of salt from salt water, is surefire way to stop a water crisis because the ocean has tons upon tons of water that we can use once its toxic salt is removed. Lastly another solution to water crises are water meters. “Using meters to monitor just how much water people are sending down drains, flushing in toilets and pouring over gardens promises to cut consumption, according to some experts” (Barford, Everett). On the other hand, the predominantly accepted solution for food crises are the use of more GMOs which stands for genetically modified organism.
Thus the greater expense of natural foods. To regular consumers, this may seem as added precautions to make sure the food is natural; however, by reading these guidelines, it is obvious that Codex is trying to trivialize organic standards so the organization can extract profits instead of protecting the health of consumers. There are some who believe that Codex regulations are justified because they really are trying to protect consumer health by thoroughly checking to make sure the food is organic. Yet there are still others who think that Codex is merely part of a larger issue, and that it’s really the multinational corporations like Big Pharma that are taking over the food industry. Throughout her blog, Luther does use a lot reasoning in her article to prove her point.
“The US Mints budget in 2010 was 27.4 million dollars in penny production”(source 1). The time wasted counting money could add up to over 700 million dollars, this money could be spent on something important. For example some countries don 't even use them, one of those countries is canada they stopped minting them in 2013. They didn 't actually ban them they just stopped minting them but made them legal to use(Source 1). In conclusion the penny cost more to produce than it is worth, so it 's not worth making and most countries don 't even mint them anymore.
It is not surprising that language barrier is one of the top ten problems in Canada. The Canadian census and medical directories, researcher have found a big number of doctors and patient not speaking English about 18 percent of the 20000 primary-care and most of languages they often speak are unofficial language; it can affect patient that they might think some information is not important (Keung, Mar. 30, 2014). However, working immigrants also have an impact from language barrier to find an occupation, because their employers will strike at them as a barrier, even though they are able to work as good as Canadian people. Therefore, two biggest problems which are affected by language barrier are working immigrant and accessing health care.
