Forum: A Logical Solution for the Middle East Conflict

The conflict in the Middle East between Israel, a sovereign nation, and Hamas, a designated terrorist organization that represents the Palestinians living in Gaza, is making news again. Over the last few weeks the TV screens around the world have splashed horrific images of destruction and suffering. We've seen this many times before. The leaderships of Israel and Hamas are not able to present a feasible proposal to end this conflict, a proposal that at least in theory would make logical sense. ...

Ranked Ballots

Under our current system a candidate can win with only 20% support. Sometimes people don’t vote for the person they actually want because they feel that vote will be lost to a rival victory.

Waste to Energy

Did you know Sweden heats 20% of their homes with garbage? Neighbouring countries pay them to take it off their hands, and then they turn it into electricity. We’re kind of jealous. We’re lucky in Canada that we have so much space to bury things, but perhaps we could be proactive. Who knows, in 20 years we could be fueling our planes with poop.
