Trudeau when elected, had promised it’s legalization and has said it would be legalized by July 2018. Although most people agreed with his decision and supported it, many people have become skeptic because of warnings made by police chiefs and psychiatrists.

She claimed the man got up screaming and swearing at her due to the fact she was wearing a hijab. The muslim teen was targeted by this man because of the hijab which led the man to hit her across her face. In a train full of people, only one person stepped up to help the teen and did not leave until the police and paramedics came.

  Psychiatric facilities in British Columbia need to rebuild their mental health systems for being unethical with patients. Mental health facilities allowed staff to constrain patients with no explanations, they denied patients the right to have a lawyer and, took away clothing from patients as a way of discipline. The “Operating in Darkness” report states the provincial Mental Health Act allows patients in confinement to be restrained to their beds, giving unwanted drug treatments and, losing their right to cloths.

The issue regarding this article is President Trump’s decision to bomb Syria and his sudden change of heart. Once he saw pictures of dead children he says his attitude towards Syria and Assad changed instantly. The media is applauding him for his change of heart, but this article argues that Trump doesn’t truly care. He says he was touched by the children being gassed to death, but still bans them from entering the country. It’s hypocritical.

I strongly agree with you and the article. I think it is really important that women have the right to choose if they want to abort or not. Mistake or not, things happen and i think women should not be ashamed of it. If i women takes the decision to not keep a baby because she cant, it should not be considered as wrong, yet a strong move. It is not easy, as we all know to have a child so if a women decides that she is incapable to keep a child, its usually for the best of the child. Making that decision to keep it or not is probably already not easy as is, so women should not be shamed for whatever she decides. If a women knows she cannot feed her baby and this is her only option, they why should it considered wrong? A person who judges a women for her descions to me is arrogant. Being in that position is not easy, so a women should be allowed to do what she pleases with her body, no matter what.

I think is it unfair to place a law only focusing on pitbulls. Like you said, any dog can have such behaviour depending on the owner. If the wish to put a law to protect neighbouhoods, they should put it for all dogs. All dogs require training and good treatment to not be aggresive, its common sense. If you treat your animal right it will never fight back. Pitbulls require the same kind of attention like any other dog. Knowing this, i strongly believe that there should be a law made for every dog and not just pitbulls because it is just unfair.

I agree with what youve said and i believe store clerks should greet their customers with bonjour/hi. I know we live in Quebec and the first language is french but, we also live in Canada making Canadas first language english so both languages should be presented. Canada is a multicultural country who is very diversed so i think it is important to allow eveyone to feel equal. If we only presented french, in my opinion it makes Canada seem weak. The more we are diverved, the more we should consider others. If we only present one language it makes it unfaur for everyone else. Being that we live in Canada i belive it is important to present both languages so everyone can understand and feel welcomed.

i agree with the statements youve pointed out. Your are right to say that it is wrong for the media to make unrealistic views on metal health making a bad example for the younger viewers. Mental illness should not be romaticised without having any evidence on it. I agree with you that people should educate themselves abit more to this subject because of the miscnceptions to it. Mental illness should not be seen as beautiful not on the media or even in school. People who suffer from these illness would probably say otherwise.

I believe that cannabis is actually a product that can help people who are actually on "strong" drugs. Cannabis cannot really be conisered one of the "strong" drugs because its effects are actually nothing compared to those drugs. You say that there is some "unanswered" questions on cannabis but i think you need to do your reserch. In all drugs in the world, being advil, alcohol and even your cell phone all have cons. Any drug in the world comes along with cons, you just need to inform yourself in the pros. A product that can be used for medcine, cloths and more can really help our economy and criminal acts going on. For the driving issue, the system just needs to implement laws agaisnt driving while smoking just like alcohol has. I believe if alcohol and cigarettes are legal and are way more addictive and dangerous killing thousaunds each year, then why is a drug who hasnt killed one person illegal?

I agree with what youve pointed out about Trump being hypocritical. It is true that actions speak louder then words so, if Trump really did care about the Syrian children who are suffereing he wouldve done more then just having a "change in heart". If he really cared for those children, it is true that he shouldve dropped the Muslim ban and even at that do something more to help. I do belive it was a diversion and a way for him to gain respect but, in the end i believe Trump is still an arrrogant coward.

Canada isn't a laic for the simple fact that we still "belong" to England which is still a protestant country, so that makes us protestant, but I think that we are as laic as we can be, although our christian background will often clash with muslims and that is why they often get a bad rap, but the Canadian government will soon com to their senses and correct their obvious lack of respect towards these women

I certainly think that every country should act like Canada on that regard, adopting this type of mentality definitely makes me proud to be a Canadian, but we also have the biggest kill records of any country regarding high ranked terrorists, so are we really as pacifistic as we think we are? And if so should we still be proud of that?

I totally agree, but I can also understand why people in the USA would get mad about this, with that being said, football is just a game, but people still have the right to express to their opinion, couldn't they do that outside of the field? There has to b another way for footballers to protest than just kneeling during the national anthem

There no collaborative classes
