Debate goes on
In response to the July/August
Debate, “Is it OK to read your
kids’ social media posts?”
YES. As parents it is your absolute duty to
have the conversation with your children on
the permanency of posting on the Internet.
Keep your counsel positive [and] share the
plus as well as the negative impacts. Phones
and tablets should be a privilege, not a given.
More about our May/June Debate,
“Should Canada legalize the
recreational use of marijuana?”
YES. The arguments for legalizing marijuana
outweigh those against. The idiotic argument

cannot correlate cause and effect because they

tantamount to calling alcohol a gateway drug
if an individual uses alcohol before deciding
to use a narcotic.
Legalization of marijuana would reduce
the burden on the penal system, and the taxes
collected from it could be used for education

Helping hands help health
I recently received the [July/August 2015]
Costco Connection magazine. While reading
through it I came across an article titled “Help
others, help yourself.”
That wonderful article came at just the
right time, as I am trying to implement volun-
teer programs at my club … and who knew
volunteering had so many health benefits,
especially to the more mature crowd?
I own and operate a fitness club … in
Etobicoke, Ontario. Daily I watch my members work to fight the effects of aging. I hope
they’ll be pleased to hear that some of those
effects can be combatted with volunteer work.
