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.

She goes on to explain how mental illness was taught to her to be frightening and scary, although now in this generation, it’s viewed as normal and “cool” to have.

A few weeks ago, the Quebec legislature created a motion that all store clerks must only address customers with "bonjour" instead of "bonjour/hi" which is heard most often in Montreal. The Parti Quebecois argues that far too many store clerks are speaking both French and English to their customers and also points out that "bonjour" is the most perceived word in the French language.

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. Now, the city of Longueuil has been pushing to ban pit bulls and pit bull mixes all together. If one does not hold a licence to own a pit bull, then they may not own one. I see this as a step in the right direction, as well as something that didn’t even have to be done. On one hand, pit bulls have been seen to be generally unpredictable and occasionally dangerous, and I see this ban to be put in place simply to protect the general public.

This article discusses about the contreversial issue that abortion is supported by medical institutions but is not able to be addressed socially. Individuals who experienced getting aborted, usually choose not to mention it because of the fear of getting judged or feel embarrassed, guilty for being part of the category of women who chose to get aborted. The main reason for these girls to feel this way is because there are preconceived expectations by the others that there is obviously a good reason for someone to choose this option.
