My school is celebrating Movember. When it is Movember the announcements at school will give students some clues about where the little moustache men are. The little moustache men are little pictures of men wearing a moustache. After we find the little moustache men we take it to a teacher and he/she will give us a moustache and we wear it. When we get the moustache we put it on and the teacher will take a picture of us wearing a moustache. Then we will get a certificate for finding a moustache and raising awareness for men’s health. Movember is done because it is used for raising money for cancer and brings awareness to men’s health. Movember is something that happens in November. These are some of the things my school is doing for Movember.
A new podcast! In this episode, one of our students tells us why Terry Fox is so important and some of the amazing things that have happened in his name.
This is a fictional speech I wrote as George Brown for my History Class.
I am George Brown. In 1851, I entered politics and became a representative for the Toronto area in the legislature, in which I think we should have more, seats then Canada East. As the owner of the Globe newspaper, I used a page of Toronto’s largest newspaper to talk about the issue that happening between Canada East and West. Canada West wants to improve the transportation systems to increase trade between the Canadas. We want canals and railways expanded. However, Canada East has said that this improvement is not necessary. Canada East and West have the same number of seats in the legislature. Every time a major bill comes to debate in the legislature, politicians from each side debate and vote each other into a political deadlock. I think it not fair that Canada East and West have the same number of seats. Canada West should have more seats than Canada East because we have more people than Canada East, therefore we should have more seats in the legislature. I am asking to have the transportation and railways systems expanded because it will be easier to trade for both sides. The improvement I am talking about can help both sides, not just Canada West but Canada East also. I think George-Etienne Cartier is being a little greedy because he doesn’t want to approve the improvement because we have the same amount of seats. Why should Canada West get more seats than us if they don’t have as many people? This is why Canada West should get more seats in the legislature than Canada East.
