Find a speech/interview from the party leader of the party you side with (or a minister)
1.) Give the context of the speech (where, when, why
Where: United Nations General Assembly in New York
When: Sep 21, 2017
Why: To discuss Indigenous reconciliation, climate change and trade.
2.) Summarize the speech
Justin Trudeau talks about the past of the Indigenous people and their challenges such as residential schools and discrimination. He talks about how the world contributes to climate change and how no one can escape it. He talks about education being more accessible and to fix poverty and discrimination.
3.) What do they say that reveals if they are left or right wing? (provide the quotes and timestamps)
Justin Trudeau seems to be more left wing than right wing because he is in favour of community over independence, against discrimination, and will fight for causes around this. He wants to help others in a way that will benefit everyone and even help the rest of the world.
4.) Do you agree with their statements? Explain why or why not
I feel that many of his statements are useful and needed but become repetitive during this speech. Things concerning discrimination may already be fixed and I feel that he is almost holding a grudge towards the past and what has happened, but most of his statements are justified and more about the future.
