Canadian Kids Need Free Access To Essential Medicines

Canada is an outlier for not having a universal program for prescription drugs for children and for allowing wide inter-provincial variation in how public drug plans serve children.

I'm Tired Of Living In A World Divided By Fear And Hate

When I recently read about an Alabama teacher giving her eighth grade class a "racist math test," I had to laugh. This couldn't be for real. Do 13-year-olds even know how to quantify an eight-ball of cocaine? Perhaps this teacher was trying to "break bad" and was looking for the Jesse Pinkman to her Walter White. When I realized it wasn't a joke -- these kids actually had to complete and turn in this test -- my feelings morphed into anger. I wasn't mad at this one teacher, but at a world where we are constantly confronted by stories of hate.

Working Out Has Made Me Better At Sitting Down

Snapchat Has Made Me More Private and Empowered

Most of what I share on Snapchat is too mundane for Instagram or Twitter, yet this is what makes the app so special. You can literally share a moment and then it goes away. I don't have to worry about what people will think about the selfie I took with food trapped in my teeth, because chances are they will forget about it as soon as the image disappears.
