General Information In the introduction to your paper, please explain why the topic is important and worth further investigation. The substance of the paper should provide a detailed empirical analysis of the pertinent issues, themes, and solutions surrounding the matter using real case studies/events and academic evidence to support your claims. Given the contemporary nature of these topics, your best resource will be the online library specifically the online journal collection of peer-reviewed journals. You may also find important points for discussion and contemporary examples in the Canadian Newsstand database which provides a rich source of information from over 200 Canadian media outlets. However, the paper must not be a summary of news articles as students are also expected to make full use of all the available resources in the university library.

Late essays submitted without adequate documentation or justification will be subject to a 5% penalty each days at the TAs discretion following the deadline for submission of papers as set out in the course outline.
