Where I Stand
By Elizabeth Lau
Not only is funding for textbooks being taken away, but for many more educated-related issues. Schools are being closed due to a deficit. This causes many problems to arise such as where the students from those schools are going to attend. Will they have to go far away to attend school? Will it cost extra to go to another school? Though closing schools may help to reduce the deficit, I'm sure there are less consequential solutions.

In the community of Walkerton, Ontario, numerous people fell ill to E.coli poisoning due the unsanitary state of the water system there. This is unacceptable. The geological location may make this area isolated but that is no excuse for the neglect that this community faces. The provincial government needs to work faster and more efficiently about improving the living conditions in these Aboriginal communities. Ontario cannot be considered a part of this "developed" country called Canada until all areas of it actually are developed.
