Part 2: Ontario teachers union and parents want the name Sir John A. Macdonald removed from schools

(Writer: Felix Ferlicchia, Editor: Wudi Fan) When I learned that Canadian parents and teachers support the idea of removing the name Sir John A. Macdonald from Canadian public schools, my reaction was, “The Sir John A. Macdonald debate is going to go viral.” One of the biggest reason for advocating the removal of this school’s name is that people disapprove the ways indigenous people were treated back in the says when Macdonald was our prime minister. My answer to this argument is: that was the past. Canada has become one of the most diverse countries in the world, and...

Ontario teachers union and parents want the name Sir John A. Macdonald removed from schools

(Writer: Felix Ferlicchia, Editor: Wudi Fan) Just a couple of months ago, the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario came up with the idea to remove the name Sir John A. Macdonald from public schools. This is an important issue for me to talk about because I’m going to a high school named after him. I can’t believe that Ontario teachers want to remove the name Sir John A. Macdonald from schools. This idea makes me angry. I hope the TDSB (Toronto District School Board) is going to decline.

They live on the streets, with the last possessions they own. We have to change that! Everybody is entitled to water, food, jobs, and houses, and they...

Impact

IMPACT The very first impact I made in this world was a noise. Growing up, I hardly realize making a better impact to anyone anywhere. 7.6 billion and few people to care, for what we do. Blow up a building! What goes wrong to a pale blue dot? No offense, but be ready to behold and strong. Small impact changes, literally. Plant a tree once a year who knows how beneficial it is ? Make others happy while you may not inside. Teach others and start sharing what you know. Surely, no regrets will come forth. Be yourself. Don’t...

Coffee Beans

(Writer: Sachin Dangi, Editor: Wudi Fan) Warm yellow lights, books on the corner shelf, with music as your friend and a coffee brewer with a friendly smile. On top of that is a menu from which I could choose beans from all over the world. As a coffee lover, this was the perfect little heaven I’ve always searched for, and my search has ended when I first entered “Coffee Beans.” It was late afternoon and I was looking for a coffee shop with a friend to end the day beautifully. On a casual walk from Naxal to Gairidhara, we saw...
