Brexit Running Out Of Time

On Friday, March 29th, the Parliament in London voted for the third time on Theresa May’s Brexit deal. In June of 2016, there was a referendum for British citizens to vote whether or not they wanted to leave the European Union. The results showed that over 17 million, or about 52 per cent of the electorate wanted to leave the EU. In the time since, Theresa May, the British Prime Minister, has been working on

Trudeau’s in Trouble — How The Disgraced Canadian Prime Minister Keeps Making Things Look Worse For His Party

These past few weeks have been trying times for Trudeau’s administration, with a flurry of cabinet resignations, controversy and revelations of in-fighting surrounding the liberal party. The scandal was conceived by a Globe and Mail report in February, which stated that the previous attorney general, Jody Wilson-Raybould, was pressured by the Canadian government to intervene in a legal case involving the company SNC-Lavalin. The corporation was charged by the RCMP back in 2015 with corrupt

Not Your Slumdog Millionaire: How India’s Dehumanization in Film Fuels America’s Desensitization in Politics

For every macabre snake charmer that has appeared inexplicably out of thin air, there are three boys playing soccer in the dirt, clothed in tattered rags. And if there isn’t an unsolicited tragic backstory ascribed to an illiterate rickshaw driver, then the peculiarly strange slums—littered with gasoline lights, will make up for it. From unrealistically unintelligible accents to curry overkill, Hollywood seems to sift through the most misrepresenting stereotypes to see which facet of a

International Volunteering and the “White Saviour Industrial Complex”

I have been recently struck, as most young people often are, with an insatiable desire to help the world. I soon thought to capitalize on my upcoming trip to India and set out to find an organization that would allow me to help out wherever I could. Turns out it’s really not that hard.

Switzerland Has Bullets But No Bullet Wounds: How?

Looking at guns in the U.S., it is clear that things are not working out. With 61 mass shootings this year already, barely three months into 2019, firearms and the current legislation in place clearly are not keeping American citizens safe. The U.S. is the first ranked country in the world in firearms per capita. In other words, there’s a lot of guns in the Land of the Free because of the 2nd Amendment. However, other

The Saudi Crown Prince is Coming to Pakistan and Pakistanis Are Not Happy About It

A few months ago, the CIA released a report on the murder of the Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Ahmed Khashoggi, briefing that the brutal murder was conducted under the orders of the Saudi Crown Prince, Muhammad Bin Salman. Ever since, the royalty has become a thorn in the eyes of journalists and humanitarians worldwide.
