CIC was formed in the year 2001 as the Muslim Canadian Congress. It was later changed into Canadian Islamic Congress (CIC). The organization represents the interests of the Canadian Muslims in the country. Muslims are a minority group in Canada. The region is overly dominated with Christianity as the main religion.

Therefore, the Canadian Islamic Congress serves the purpose of protecting the rights and the interests of the Muslims in the region. The following are some facts about the organization which are not known by many people:

Also, the organization has been involved in researching on the factors shaping the inclusion (or lack of it) of Canadian Muslims in national political affairs.

4) CIC highly Upholds the Contributions of Muslims in Canada

What Is Canadian Islamic CongressAs a minority group, Muslims are not really appreciated for their efforts in Canada. Therefore, this translates into reduced interest in developing their careers especially among the youthful generations.

Normally, the organization does this through giving awards and honoring different Muslim individuals involved in different projects as well as showcasing the contributions in the mass and social media.

Also, the organization is involved in publishing different articles and papers such as: Canada and the Muslim World, Islam, and Social Justice.

6) CIC acts as the Voice of Canadian Muslims

Muslims are a minority group in Canada. Therefore, they might be disadvantaged in voting as well as in other sectors and matters of the public. CIC holds the role of the spokesman in consulting the federal government and other departments to address different concerns affecting the Muslims community in Canada.

Through CIC, many Muslim individuals in Canada have been able to integrate in the society without any fear of discrimination on the grounds of religion. The organization has acted as the main advocator of Islamic rights in the country. Also, the organization has helped over 3,000 students to pursue different courses in Canadian universities.

Justin Trudeau, the son of a former Canadian Prime Minister, gained widespread media attention and popularity when he delivered a touching and artistic eulogy of his father- during his father’s funeral. Claude Ryan described the speech as a manifestation of a political dynasty.

Trudeau has worked as a teacher and an activist. His win brought new hope to his party which had struggled in elections. And on a light note, his shaggy hair did not prevent him from winning the elections. At quite an early age, Trudeau was a staunch supporter of the liberal. For example, in the 1988 federal election, he campaigned for John Turner.

Political Ideology

Budget Deficits

What Is The Political Ideology of Justin TrudeauTrudeau stated that he would accommodate budget deficits in order to invest in major infrastructural initiatives, which would in turn play a key role in boosting the economy. Other major parties were in favor of balanced budget. His argument was that an effective response to the recession would be a stimulus. Consequently, the gains will outweigh the negative impact of deficits.

Taxation on the Wealthy

Trudeau proposed that he would raise taxes on the wealthy. This would help the state compensate for a tax cut that the middle class will benefit from. Trudeau has long been against the conservatives’ taxation policy and he desired to overturn at least some of its major tenants. He has vowed to execute this policy.

Stand on Refugees

Perhaps, the most humanitarian policy that Trudeau has promised to develop is a welcoming attitude towards the refugees. Canada is a multicultural and pluralistic country. He promised to process of admitting Syrian refugees to Canada and make a $ 100 million on investment in the resettlement. He has continuously shown his discontent about banning the nigab (a veil that is worn by women in order to cover a part of their face).

The Voting System

What Is The Political Ideology of Justin TrudeauIn Canadian politics, the first-past-the-post method of voting does not favor the liberal politicians. Trudeau has stated that he would select an all-party committee which should come up with a more acceptable voting system. On the table of the system is online voting as well as ranked ballots.

Climate Change

At the center of Canadian elections was the issue of climate change. The conservatives were generally cold about international agreements concerning climate change, perhaps due to the economic cost that comes with that.

Trudeau has pledged to support the climate change of efforts, thus taking a distant stand from the conservatives.

Other Positions:

The following are other political positions held by Trudeau:

  • Legalizing marijuana (he says law enforcement on marijuana is expensive. Trudeau has admitted to using marijuana in at least two instances
  • Putting the air bombardment against IS to an end: He proposes more ground troops and an increase in humanitarian aid.
  • Boosting the relationship between the US and Canada. This was strained under Harper.

Conclusion

The liberal party will not have a difficult time in passing its legislation. This is because it holds the majority in parliament. However, changing what the conservatives have laid down in ten years is not an easy task.

According to the health experts, having a massage is an effective way to deal with stress and cope with various health issues. Therefore, improved technology is continuously looking for ways to improve than traditional hand massage. This is on a quest to deliver more effective massage effects. This has led to the coming up and improvement of the massage chairs. The latest massage chairs are installed with computer intelligence that makes the whole massage experience better and more enjoyable than the manual hand massage.

• Acupuncture technique

Massage Chairs Are Better Than the Manual Body Massage

The most advanced massage chairs have foot rollers utilize the reflexology technique. They accurately identify the acupoints on the sole of the feet. This is a new technique in which very few massage therapists know or even utilize. This means that when one uses a massage chair, they do not only enjoy the benefits of the massage but also the benefits of reflexology.

• Full Body massage simultaneously

The massage chairs are installed with an automated program in which one can enjoy an all body massage simultaneously. However, with a manual body massage, one can only have one stage to the next massage. At no point can one enjoy an intense massage whereby all the body parts are being massaged.

• Chromotherapy

Some massage chairs have blue LED lighting that illuminates the massage room with a cool relaxing atmosphere. This means that the massage chair also utilizes the visual sensation to induce and facilitate relaxation. Most table massage rooms just have the normal lighting. They only use the tactile sense to induce relaxation.

• Heat Therapy

Most massage chairs utilize the heat therapy for the lower back massage. This helps to induce relaxation and increased blood blow. Heat therapy is a technique not always utilized by massage therapists. This makes the massage chair more effective than the traditional massage.

• Audio Stimulation

Massage Chairs Are Better Than the Manual Body Massage

Some massage chairs are installed with an MP 3 system. This can be used by the client to listen to some cool soothing tracks. This helps to use the audio sensation to induce relaxation and stress relief. This is not the case in the normal table massage.

• Uncomfortable with touch

A number of people are uncomfortable with being touched by another person. This can be uncomfortable mostly because one is required to shed most of their clothes. Therefore, for such people, a massage chair in the comfort of their home would be the ideal situation. Even if one is going for a chair massage at one’s local massage parlor, one can get the massage with the clothes on .

• Schedule

With a professional masseuse, you need to make an appointment. This can be inconvenient with you work schedule. However, when you have a massage chair in your home gym, you can get the massage at the time you are free without having to re-arrange your schedule.

Conclusion

The most advanced massage chairs are very effective in massage. If one does the calculation of how much one spends on massage per month and yearly, one will realize that it exceeds buying a massage chair.
