Child Abuse Is Plain And Simple

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turpin_case

Children’s rights are front and centre when considering extreme examples of child abuse.

The world may harbour many more problems for the special needs of children.

We need a charter for children’s rights to help support the legal rights and obligations for them.

Johnson Street Bridge

Like most city infrastructure, there is a long bland story and a few salient facts.

It looks good and works well and the budget covers the large price tag of just over 105 Million dollars.

North American Racism

This region has a large group of people who happen to be people of color or “visible minorities”.

This is important because too many people become homeless due to factors that point to Racism.

Too many people go to prison due to law that is decidedly racist.

”Whiteness “ may help describe the problem.

Democracy is a factor that points to Racism in this region.

The sooner we say we have a problem with racism in Canada, the sooner we can work out problems of racism in Canada.

We have racism in Canada!

Old Man Vs. Young Woman: Love/ Hate Relationship

In this dialogue there is a simple exchange of opposing view on opening day of the bike lane on Fort Street in Victoria, B.C., Canada

Olds man: I am a tax payer!

Young Woman (trying to ride her bike around the old man who is purposely blocking her way): what do you think I am?

NAFTA 2.0 OR BUST

What is going on with the trading agreement between these three countries?

It seems like two friends are standing up to a bully.

The Canadian Media are running lead stories that talk dumb to the reader.

With so much at stake, the economy of so much of the world and the specific trade arrangement of the United States, Canada and Mexico…

Automotive industry in all three countries like the present deal.

It seems Mexico puts together the labor intensive parts.

But the states want more of this kind of work done at home.

For political reasons not too clear, Canada seems to be siding with the Mexicans as the negotiations begin to move into high gear.

Canada promises a win-win-win.

Many argue things are good the way things stand, but the results of these negotiations may show that the Americans are going to retool at home.

Fair trade for all may seem like a contradiction but work based on the NAFTA AGREEMENT will be the backbone of this round of negotiations.

Good luck to the three countries trying to work things out!
