This week, grade nine TOPS students are working on their geography summative projects. They are studying different industries such as waste management, mining, fishing, and agriculture as well as their effects on our environment. Through their research, they are gaining insight into increasingly pressing environmental problems.
On November 13th, John Carmichael, the Don Valley West MP, visited MGCI to talk to the grade 9 students about his job and issues affecting the GTA. Students had a chance to ask him questions, as well as learn more about the government of Canada, recent news, and how to become involved in politics in the future.
