    I’d like to share a news that I read in The Epoch Times. March 15-21,2012

    Trudeau and Brazeau box against cancer.

    Liberal MP Justin Trudeau will face off against conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau on March 31 in a fundraiser for the Ottawa Regional cancer foundation.
    Trudeau noted Brazeau black belt, experience as a kick boxer, and time in the Canadian forces give him an edge. He’s got a lot of advantages on me, but I’m hoping to be able to prevail nevertheless, he said ” I suspect that he’s going to try to go for the knockout. I’m going to try and make sure I win the fight.

      Hi Nooria,

      Thanks for sharing this news story with us. This is actually a friendly story about politicians who are from different political parties working together for a good cause.

      Do you know who Justin Trudeau’s father is? His father was a very famous Canadian politician. If there are any students who know who his father is, please share.

    Hello everyone,

    I’d like to share a news story that I read in The Province Online. Here is the link:

    B.C. is looking to send welfare recipients north for training program

    This article is about a new program that the Liberal Party wants to implement. It wants to send people who are on welfare to northern B.C. for job training and housing. The idea is to help the welfare recipients find high-paying jobs and to help employers fill jobs that are hard to fill.

    I hope that this link will help you connect with the information we talked about in class. I’m looking forward to reading the articles that you share.
