Justin Trudeau, the new Prime Minister of Canada faces a series of challenges in the wake of his new role in power. This young man is taking on three major issues which could result in positive backlash or negative backlash for Canada.
The new Prime Minister’s first order of business is to legalize marijuana. He wishes to have a marijuana dispensary store based in every major city across Canada. The hope is that the revenue generated will be enough to sustain a better health care system, better roads and better housing for the less fortunate. The challenge behind this is building the infrastructure behind those stores, it’d require Canada to create an entirely new hemp industry and provide it to their citizens. This is something that’ll take a number of years to full gain effect.
The second challenge this young prime minister faces is that he wishes to reverse the effects of what previous Prime Minister Harper did to the Canadian Eco-Systems. Justin has even gone as far as to already put his thoughts & efforts into the brand new “Great Lakes Environmental Protection Act”. This is a challenge that could prove to be difficult as Harper destroyed more than half of the natural lakes & rivers within Canada. Monitoring the rain levels, ensuring that water levels rise and that wild life returns will be the largest struggle this Prime Minister faces.
Though it seems the people of Canada have full faith in the abilities of Justin Trudeau, his father is often considered to be the best Prime Minister Canada has ever seen.
There’ll be a total of five new sports that’ll be added to the 2020 Beijing Olympics. Two of these sports include Skateboarding and Surfing, this is absolutely shocking as these two sports are considered to be something enjoyed by the youth and only the youth. Luckily the Olympics need to do some modernizing as the amount of youth (16-25) that watch the Olympics is an incredibly low amount. The Olympics Committee has been challenged multiple times throughout the last two decades to add new sports into the Olympics, it seems for the first time in more than twenty years the committee is willing to rise to the challenge of doing so.
Offering two sports such as these ones will revolutionize the Olympics & the International Olympic Committee knows it. Unfortunately there decision doesn’t have to be made until the end of August, 2016 which is a long time that could ultimately affect their decision on allowing for these sports to become a part of the Olympics.
There’ll also be baseball, softball, sport climbing and karate that could possibly be added into the 2020 Beijing Olympics. When various North American young teens and adults were asked if they’d watch the Olympics if these sports were added to the roster, 90% agreed that they would and that it’d make the Olympics far more exciting.
It seems that running at a face rate of speed, jumping high in the air, swimming and all the other normal sports are no longer exciting enough for the youth. This isn’t surprising with the mass amount of visually impressive video games, movies, TV and overall culture. This day in age more is suspected out of entertainment, the Olympics are not impervious to the changes.
