The debate on language has been on going in Quebec forever. For some reason, we can’t come to a conclusion that choice of language, shouldn’t be offensive in any way. But lately, the court/government hasn’t been very compassionate when asked if there could be more than one main language. In Quebec, the answer is always French.

The debate on pit bulls and mixed breed dogs around my town, Greenfield Park (Longueuil) has been an on-going debate for roughly the past 2 years.

This debate has gone on for a long time after the US Supreme Court passed a law on it is a fundamental right to humans in 1973. For people who believe they are pro-choice, they state that abortion is a right and that it should not be limited or banned by any authority figure, including governments as well as religions.
