The modern world requires the establishment of industrial buildings which emits hazardous gases in the atmosphere and toxic wastes in the water systems. Nova Scotia is not exempted from this problem of developed cities. According to Dr Ross, the president of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, "Nova Scotia and New Brunswick already have significant problems with indoor air pollution and have an alarming number of cases of environmentally induced illness/chemical sensitivity and asthma" (Allergy and Environmental Health Organization 1). As a citizen of Nova Scotia, each of us should unite in order to fight this problem by ensuring that business organizations operating within our community adhere to the set standard in sustainable development. Furthermore, we should do small acts like cleaning up our yard, segregating and properly disposing our garbage.
Literacy is an important issue which is being considered by not for profit institutions which all aim to provide a venue in educating both young and old (Literacy Nova Scotia 1). I believe that in this modern time, our society can better function if all the citizens are literate. If everyone is able to read, write, and comprehend, a level playing field is created where each one is considered for available job opportunities.
