1. If I got the chance to solve 5 problem out of 10 problems. They would be child care, welfare, crime, decrease homelessness, and child poverty. I had chosen child care because the Canadian Universal Child Care Benefit provides all families $1,200 per year for each child under six, to be taxable in the hands of the spouse with the lower income. In order to raise awareness of the Benefit, a series of print and radio advertisements were developed, describing the program and reminding readers and listeners that some parents will need to apply and plus my family get child care services. I had chosen welfare because my father has a leg problem and since we have welfare it is very helpful to us for paying our food, clothing and supplies need for us to live. I had chosen crime because I do not like people who go into crime as there life time job so I may have told you before that I want to become a police officer because I want to decrease to amount of crimes in youth. I often hear on the new and for people that youth have been charged with crime on killing someone, thief, or online cyber bullying. I want to build awareness to the city about amount of crime in our city. I had chosen decrease homelessness because I as a youth I have been noticing that my youth are homeless kids on the streets that is one reason why my youth for ypi had chosen that topic for our group. I had chosen child poverty because Children who experience poverty, especially persistently, are at higher risk of suffering health problems, developmental delays, and behaviour disorders. They tend to attain lower levels of education and are more likely to live in poverty as adults. Moreover, the failure to address poverty may place a heavy burden on a country’s economy. As the OECD has concluded, “failure to tackle the poverty and exclusion facing millions of families and their children is not only socially reprehensible, but it will also weigh heavily on countries’ capacity to sustain economic growth in years to come.” The Conference Board of Canada uses the OECD’s relative measure of child poverty, which calculates the proportion of children living in households where disposable income is less than 50 per cent of the median in each country. Those are the reasons why I chose them.
2. A few reasons why I did not chose increased waste is because Pollution is one of the biggest global killers, affecting over 100 million people. That’s comparable to global diseases like malaria and HIV. Over 1 billion people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water. 5,000 people die each day due to dirty drinking water.14 billion pounds of garbage are dumped into the ocean every year. Most of it is plastic. Over 1 million seabirds and 100,000 sea mammals are killed by pollution every year. People who live in places with high levels of air pollutants have a 20% higher risk of death from lung cancer than people who live in less-polluted areas. The Mississippi River carries an estimated 1.5 million metric tons of nitrogen pollution into the Gulf of Mexico each year, creating a “dead zone” in the Gulf each summer about the size of New Jersey. Approximately 46% of the lakes in America are too polluted for fishing, aquatic life, or swimming. Americans make up an estimated 5% of the world’s population. However, the
