let’s “move on already.” I must agree with Brooks when this apology would have been more appropriate countless years ago when it would have had more meaning to the actual victims themselves. The Republican Party was also created in light of the movement to eradicate slavery, so for them to feel the need to participate in this resolution is also irrational to a point.

As the baby boomers (the segment of the population born post World War II approximately 1946 to 1964) have grown older and become more dependent on health care and social programs to support their living. The Canadian government has become increasingly concerned with this global
Over several centuries, women have been fighting for their rights. There has been certain changes to benefit women, but they seem to be invisible.
