Module 1 Post 5 – News Article

My mum forwarded this interesting Globe and Mail article to me this week, as it’s obviously related to our course thus far!

Link: “Native Youth Claim Their Future Through Technology”

The article is part of a series the paper is running called “Rich Country Poor Country”, and looks at the disparity in income and standard of living in Canada between a variety of groups.  The author, a contributor to the paper named Gabrielle Fayant, describes growing up very poor and the impact this had on her and her peers – but then goes on to describe how she is using technology as a platform for programs that effect change.

For those interested, the video linked within the article goes into greater detail about the wealth gap, and this article (link: http://www.macleans.ca/news/canada/out-of-sight-out-of-mind-2/ ) from Maclean’s I read a few months ago lays it out even more plainly.
