Ford loses, plastic bag ban stays

This is an article from the Toronto Star that talks about Rob
Ford wanting to reopen the issue of the plastic bag ban
•In June council voted to ban all plastic bags in Toronto
•Rob Ford wanted to reopen debate to the councils decision
•Rob Ford’s idea has been turned down
•Now council is opening this matter up to a public hearing to
hear others ideas to help them if they're sued
•“ City council has voted not to reconsider its June decision to ban plastic bags as of January 1st”

•“The council decision in June to ban the bags could only be reopened if two-thirds of council agreed. The vote was 27-18 short of that threshold.”

•“Torontonians rely on [plastic bags] for household pet and organic waste; 85 percent of the bags are re-used, very few go to landfill and the balance are recycled in the blue box system into useful products”

•“The ban was susceptible to a legal challenge because it was passed without consulting the public and industry.”

Quebec private schools willing to accept more challenged students

This is an article from The Gazette that speaks about The Minister of Education ,Marie Malovys threatening to cut government subsidies to private schools
(Subsidie: grant or contribution of money)

- A day later option: 324 fee paying schools cut off 60% of their revenue if they accept students with learning disablities
- Private schools take an unfair advantage because they only accept the bright children and reject those with disabilities/ handicaps
- main private school assosiations insisted that Malavoy was wrong, "All our schools welcome students with a variety of learning challenges, according to the resources available to properly support each child.” -Michel Lafrance, head of Quebec Association of Independent Schools continued... Key Sentences - according to Education Department figures (2007-2008) province gave $450 million to private system
-“We are against a ‘retail’ approach to education,” said Denise Boucher, “where schools increasingly select the students they want
It used to be that in every school you had stronger students mixed in with weaker ones and they could help one another.” In an interesting study conducted by Showtime television, the hosts
found that 75% of tested New York City residents actually
preferred tap water over bottled water in a blind taste test. In Canada, per capita bottled water consumption grew 40% from 1999 to 2004. In 1999, each Canadian consumed approximately 24.4 litres of bottled water.
By 2005, it had increased to about 60 litres per person, with sales worth $652.7 million. References: Bagnall, Janet. " ”The Gazette. 12 October. 2012, Montreal ed.: G1. Print. *Took a 32km trek to British fort to warn them

Title: Canada and the EU are natural partners
Government: International

* This is an article from the Toronto Star (www.thestar.com) that speaks about the shared desires of different issues that Canada and the European Union endorse. Includes promotions such as defending democracy and freedom, against the death penalty and promoting human rights worldwide.


* Canada and EU ties are developing
*investment flows and bilateral trade boost further because of (CETA)

(She is the Vice President of the European Commission and the representative for foreign affairs)
*Faces challenges of democratization, sustainable development and refuge in other foreign countries
*EU’s civilian and military missions overseas has Canada as a regular and highly valued participant Key Sentences

*[Few partners have as much in common as the European Union and Canada. Our shared desire to promote and defend freedom and democracy, the social protection our societies offer, our rejection of the death penalty and our belief in championing human rights globally are just some of the areas of convergence.]

*[Canada is already a regular and highly valued participant in the EU’s civilian and military missions overseas, and is the only country outside Europe regularly to participate in EU electoral observation missions around the world.]

*[The strongest kind of international relations are those that are rooted in history, supported by common values and nurtured by similar interests. That describes the Canadian-European relationship perfectly.]

*[What started out in the 1950s as a mainly economic relationship has evolved over the years to become a close strategic partnership.]

*[The EU is Canada’s second most important trading partner after the U.S. and Canada the EU’s 11th most important.]


*Ashton, Catherine. "Canada and the EU are natural partners." Toronto Star
13 Oct. 2012, sec. Opinion: n. pag. http://www.thestar.com. Web. 13 Oct. 2012. Introducing the
Debate Topic: Some people may say that water bottles are cleaner and safer than tap water and should defiantly be allowed to sell water bottles in school however the following fact states:
1. Consumers should not assume that bottled water is any more pure or safe than tap water. In one case, a brand of bottled water, advertised as “pure, glacier water,” was found to be taken from a municipal water supply while another brand, flaunted as “spring water,” was pumped from a water source next to a hazardous waste dumping site.
Also another supporting fact to the last argument is:
2. In Canada, tap water is more stringently tested than bottled water. Canadian tap water is also fluorinated, which is better for your teeth than its non-fluorinated bottled counterpart. A number of scientific studies have shown that bottled water is often less safe than tap water.
People may say it is okay to have them in schools since they can be recycled as this fact states the benefits: A Couple of perspectives on Bottled v.s. Tap Water As You can see there are two cups of water on your desk.
One is marked with an "X" and the other with a "Y'. We
cannot tell we what each cup contains or else if we did, it would cause our little experiment to become redundant. What we can tell you is that each cup contains a different type of water. In other words, the first cup was treated differently than the second cup. Please do not drink from them as yet......

We ask you to now drink the first cup ( "X" ). Now remember how that tasted to you and then set it aside when you are done.

Now that you ahve tasted that one, we now ask you to drink from the second cup ( "Y" ). PLease refer to instructions from first taste test please. Water Drinking Poll A lot of people might think plastic water bottles
are okay because they can be recycled however:

* An estimated 88% of water bottles are not recycled in Canada. These bottles take up to 1,000 years to biodegrade and may leak toxic additives into the groundwater. Plastic bottles are becoming the fastest-growing form of municipal solid waste in the U.S. and Canada. Every day, consumers discard more than 60 million plastic water bottles.
Bottled water also causes a lot of pollution in the process of just transporting the bottle as this fact states:

* In contrast to tap water, which is distributed through an energy-efficient infrastructure, transporting bottled water over long distances involves burning massive quantities of fossil fuels. Nearly a quarter of all bottled water crosses national borders to reach consumers, transported by boat, train, and truck. Works Cited: Ashton, Catherine. "Canada and the EU are natural partners."
