MINING


 WHAT IS THE BIGGEST ISSUE GOING ON WITH MINING? HOW DOES IT AFFECT CANADIAN PEOPLE? AND WHAT ARE SOME SOLUTIONS TO THIS ISSUE? WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS ISSUE?


Development of sinkholes, failure of biodiversity, erosions, and more are the encouragement of mining. The use of catastrophic emissions due to the mining and the processing of plants has been encouraged to an amount of $1 billion. For the past 20 years, this issue has been arising. 

The mining industry and acid precipitation causes issues related to:

-Soil, atmosphere, water, and vegetation are destroyed causing destruction the environment surrounding us.
-The decease of aquatic animals; fish, sea turtles, moon jellyfish, etc.
-As acid rain drops on buildings, it causes decomposition. 
-Different kinds of chemicals are free to roam while the development of mining continues.
-We humans, and the animals around, face the consequences of waste in water.

Health problems are created for the workers in the mining industry. Sickness, infections, that may possibly  evolve to death, develop when the miners leave the holes they've dug for puddles to materialize. Communities that don't work for these mining industries may also get harmed by the chemicals released by workers. For example, chemicals released in water can discharge diseases for random folk who one day probably decide to; take a bath, wash certain objects, drink the water, or even play in it.

Solutions to create less construction to acid precipitation would be to:

-Purchase Eco-friendly brands.
-Take the subway, walk, take your bike to wherever your destination is, if available. 
-Definitely reduce, reuse, and recycle.
-Energy-efficient brands are the way to go!

My opinion to this situation would be to try and make a change in the way things work to make our environment more sustainable. Walking, taking a bus, car-pooling, riding a bike, spending less time on electronics, concentrating on family time, are some ways to 'speed' up the process we need to take in order for our planet's impact to perform. Miners should focus on the the impact they can make by using less effective ways for our environment to be safer.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING/ CLIMATE CHANGE
 & WHAT CAN PEOPLE DO TO HELP THE SITUATION?

In my opinion, global warming/ climate change is startling, and a serious matter to be taken care of. We as humans don't realize the issues we create for ourselves, the world, and the environment surrounding us. Animal extinctions, the burning of fossil fuels, droughts, wildfires, floods, are the root to our beginning. We are the cause of these universal concerns, but we can be the solution too.

To be the resolution, we can start to conserve energy, plant trees, reduce, reuse, recycle, make better transportation choices, make every drop of water count, and so much more. We can't rewind all the damage we have done to the environment but we can do something to rectify our mistakes.

We aren't just saving the planet but saving ourselves as well. If we do go extinct, without us the circumstance won't matter because in millions, or billions of years from now the earth will heal itself.

In conclusion, all these little facts, and things can result in big changes healing our planet, and importantly, us. Its essential for all of us, in fact everyone to care and be involved in the situation.

                   CAN WE BE PROUD OF CANADA'S IMMIGRATION HISTORY?

This question depends on the past and future events Canada had and is currently offering. My opinion to this would be, somewhat.

In the past, some problems people didn't know how to deal with was the language barriers, and housing. Some couldn't understand some situations because they weren't familiar with the words others were trying to convey. Housing is a great example to a few of those problems with language barriers. A major key to moving in a new country was to secure housing. The issue here was, new people, a new country, and no awareness of pricing. Nowadays the internet is a big resource to solving these concerns, but in the past there weren't many options.

Currently, Canada is openly accepting and very welcoming to immigrants and refugees who need our help and a place to stay. We provide healthcare, education and a place for them to freely live. Today, Canada's one of the countries that allow for a efficient worker from a third world to legally live in a developed country. Canada will always aid families who need food, shelter, clothes, and once again, education.

To my conclusion, Canada has had its rough spots, but it's improved throughout time. Though language barriers and housing problems may have been issues, its been solved within age. Now we have a welcoming economy which grants immigrants and refugees freedom and shelter to stay or even legally live. We are pleased to comfort families that need a hand to help out. I wonder what more Canada is or might offer in the future!
