Yesterday was Human Rights Day. You can learn about the history of Human Rights Day at this Wikipedia Page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Rights_Day#History There are many days during the year when we focus on particular rights, including December 6th last week when we focused on the Day of Remembrance and the Rights of Women to safe education and to equal rights.
You will find a poster about Human Rights at the link below. You can click on the image to make it big enough to read from. These are human rights we hold dear and true in Canada.
Please choose one of the Human Rights represented on the poster that speaks to you and respond to ONE of the following questions:
1. Do you think all Canadians have this right? Who does and who doesn’t? Explain your answer.
2. What can Canadians do to ensure that this right is applied to everyone? Name one action that individuals and groups of people can do to ensure it is?
3. Are there any rights that you think are missing from this poster? What is a right you believe all people should have that is not a part of this list?
Please remember to answer all parts of the question you choose and to use full sentences. Edit your work before you press “post comment”. This means reading your work over and checking for periods, capitals, and that your work makes sense.
