Hello Learning Circle Members,


1.) In Canada, we are fortunate enough to be allied with most countries around the world.  In our community, it is very easy to access a variety of goods at all times.  It is simply a matter of going to the store and getting whatever it is you need.


Additionally, several countries rely on us to export to them many goods, in particular natural resources such as water and crude oil. 


Our question has to do with the Global Partnership Millennium Development Goal.
