Quebec Separatism

comport
Buyhers86

I feel that as a self-proclaimed minority, Quebec is taking advantage of the rest of the Canadian provinces, they use our federal government's money, they are given all the same health benefits, and they are in most cases admired by English-speaking Canadians. Maritimers often journey out to the great city of Montreal, to vacation and embrace the French culture. Meanwhile the Francophone are loathing the Anglophones, and wishing they could be rid of us, and rely on themselves rather then the Can...

Georgia
FlareGlare

With many people in today's society going online and making friends it is not threatening our privacy as we have the choice to add friends, show our face book, myspace pictures and profile.

Do violent games cause behavioural problems?

Bernard
Fakhriddin

To what extent do you agree that violent games cause behavioural problems? In my point of view, I think violent games cause behavioural problems. One the reasons is that many children nowadays however, go to internet clubs to play violent games some play at home on computer. hence they begin to practice it with their friends and I believe that in the end it will result into a problem. ...

Should parents let children under 13 have a Facebook account?

kimnlj2
jon1405

I am a parent of a 10 year old son and I believe with proper supervision children under the age for 13 should be allowed to have a Facebook account. I ONLY have my sons Facebook password and I ONLY accept or decline friend requests. Also, my son uses Facebook to play games and keep in touch with family outside of the area. This also gives him a chance to communicate with pre approved friends that are on his sport teams. I believe making a big deal out of things that are in everyday society mak...

Should Married Men and Women Pool Their Income???

One_Winged_Rook
Dorie

This is a debate, and I say that I'm Pro on it, but I really don't have an opinion (yet, anyway). The debate is this: If a married couple both have full-time employment, should they pool their money? That is-- Should they keep their expenses separate and operate more or less as roommates? or Should they pool their funds and consider all things equal? This also extends to when they have children. Should each partner contribute equal amounts to the "children fund", same go...
