Louis Riel hero or traitor?

November 29th, 2011 by caleb

 

Is Louis Riel a hero or a traitor? In my mind Louis Riel was a hero but I also think that he was a traitor.

 

 

 

Louis was a traitor. He killed Thomas Scott and was charged for high treason but he had a reason. Thomas Scott began to tell people that the Metis were not fit to be part of the government. He said that Canada should simply ignore them and set up a government without considering the Metis. But Louis Riel was trying to get the government to accept the Metis list of rights. So you can see how hard it would been to be Louis Riel he just wanted the government to accept the Metis list of rights and then Thomas Scott tells the people that the Metis were not fit to be part of the government.

 

 

 

Louis Riel was a hero in alot of peoples minds. The Metis, French, and First Nation all of them thought that Louis Riel was a hero. He was the leader of the Metis in Red River. Louis Riel had meny supporters. He tryed to get the government to accept the Metis list of rights. But at lest he tryed… At lest he was trying to stand up for the Metis.

 

 

 

Louis Riel was a good person. He stand up for what he believed. In court he could of said he was insane and could of stayed alive but that would of changed how people thought of him… Of the Metis it would of changed how we think of him. As well he was standing up for the Metis before no one thought very high of the Metis but Louis Riel tryed to stand up for the Metis.

 

 

 

Some people think Louis Riel was a hero some people think that he was a traitor. But in my mind Louis Riel was a hero. He standed up for what he believed even when he could die or go to jail but at lest he tryed because I know that I would rather say I’m insane instilled of being hanged but that’s me. That’s what I think so what do you think. Is Louis Riel a hero or a traitor?

Should Teenagers aged 14 yrs. be allowed to drive?

November 14th, 2011 by caleb

I think that 14 year olds should be able to drive. If teenagers can pass their drivers tests they should be allowed to drive. They can be responsible just like 16 year olds. It would take some of the pressure off of the parents to have to drive them everywhere.

Car companies can make more money.  The teenagers would want to buy a car. This creates more money being made by the car dealer and maker. They would also have to pay to take their drivers test. This means more money for the government and driving school instructors.

Students and their maturity level. As teens we like to have fun. We like racing, speed drifting and well just breaking the law. It all depends on your maturity level. Teens will break the rules.  It is a part of growing up and testing the limits.  Others will be responsible and drive the speed limit. If they can pass their drivers test why shouldn’t they be allowed to drive?

If teenagers can pass their drivers test, why shouldn’t they be allowed to drive? If teenagers know how to drive, why stop them from driving? If teenagers can pass the drivers test they should be as good as everyone else that takes the test be sides the pass the test.

In conclusion, yes some teenagers will break the law, but so will everyone else. If they pass their drivers test why can’t they drive? What do you think?

Good Grades vs. Sports

November 14th, 2011 by caleb

 

Should students athletes have good grades to play sports? In my opinion I think students should get good grades inoder to play on sports teams.

School comes first.  If you didn’t have good grades you would fail the school year but get to play on the sports teams. So you would be leaving the school knowing nothing. Plus in sports you need to be smart on how play the game. Also there wouldn’t be a point of school because you don’t need good grades to play on the sports teams.

Bad influence. If one person is failing their class everyone thinks they can fail their class too. So no one is getting the education that they come to school for. They get to play on the sports teams that like getting a reward for doing nothing.

Not everyone is smart but they are good at sports. Some athletes can’t get good grades but they are like the best on the team. For example, I am not smart. I don’t get good grades, but I can play sports. It would make our team better.  We could have the best even if we don’t get good grades.

In conclusion,  just because not all athletes are smart, they still should need to get good grades in order to play on school sports teams. Having good grades is important to be successful in life. When school ends, what will you do?

Do you think 1 big gym is better then 2 small gyms?

October 28th, 2011 by caleb

I think that 1 big gym is better then 2 small gyms.  When we have a partice for basketball or volleyball it would be the real size of a court.  This would allow us to be better and more prepared for the games. If we have been playing on the appropriate size court  I think we would be ready.   When we are in the small gym for volleyball we have to hit the wall when serving because our gym is too small!  We don’t even have a real size court to play on.  It makes practices harder. Even when we are playing basketball the 3 point line would be at half.  This is hard because you can’t tell where the 3 point line would be or the real size for a volleyball court.  We could be hitting the wall in our gym but at the other schools it might not make it over the net.  When we hit the roof  in our gym but not at theirs. 

So in conclusion, I believe we need to spend money on a bigger gym.  What do you think?
