Living Wages

Would it be great if we lived in a society where company owners cared be about making a living and not making a fortune? Wouldn’t it be great if company profits were shared with all workers so that they can have a better life? All people are deserving to live above the poverty level. I... Continue Reading →

Threats of violence and death

Threats of violence and death on social media are the same as when they come out of your mouth. If you wouldn't say it to someone's face, don't post it online. People get away with too much on social media. It's time that we are all held accountable for our words. You cannot just say... Continue Reading →

Indigenous Peoples

August 9th is International Day for the World's Indigenous People. I am Métis. This means that I am mixed race. Did you know that the Métis flag dates as far back as 1815? It is among the oldest flags originating in Canada. Its unique infinity symbol represents both the Métis culture’s permanency and the union... Continue Reading →

Human Trafficking

July 30th is the World Day against Trafficking in Persons. As a parent, this is the most terrifying subject. Human trafficking is on the rise. Like countless other issues in the world, I hope we rise from the sidelines to rediscover that collectively, the world is in our hands. For information or help: 1 888... Continue Reading →

Legal doesn’t equal Justice

There are still many laws that shouldn’t exist anymore, that still go against basic human rights. For example, Forced child marriage is still legal in Canada. "Colonialism was legal. Slavery was legal.... Continue Reading →

World Refugee Day

June 20th is World Refugee Day. This year I find it's more important than ever to discuss this subject. With the horrors that is happening so close to home and the grumble about refugees locally. It's important to understand that with global warming, war, discrimination, unress and overpopulation, there will be more and more families... Continue Reading →
