Approaching a $15 Minimum Wage at Trent University
By Rachel Flinders, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: OPIRG; Supervising Professor: Heather Nicol; Trent Community Research Centre, GEOG4030 - Community Based Research in Geography, The goal of this report is to research post-secondary campuses and cities that have implemented a $15 minimum wage, as well as campaigns and concrete strategies for doing so. Guided by this research, it will propose the best approach to implementing a $15 minimum wage at Trent University and in Peterborough. The methodological approach used to address the research questions raised in this particular study will be to acquire and analyze data through the completion of a comprehensive literary review of previously available and related knowledge, as obtained from primarily academic, government and university website documents. Successful movements toward a $15 minimum wage as experienced in the City and County of San Francisco, the City and State of New York, and the province of Alberta are analyzed. Successful movements toward a $15 minimum wage the in post-secondary institutions of the University of Washington, the University of California, and York University are also analyzed. From this research, the most important aspects of a successful $15 minimum wage movement are identified, and a general model to approaching a $15 minimum wage has been created. It is recommended that moving forward in campaigning for and/or implementing a $15 minimum wage in Trent and Peterborough, that this general model be considered as a guide. It is also recommended that further research be completed on the effects of a $15 minimum wage on the Trent University and Peterborough Economy, prior to implementation

How Did the Turtle Cross the Road: A Turtle Road Mortality and Mitigation Study
The purpose of the present research was to identify areas of high turtle road mortality, known as hotspots, in order to determine what steps can be taken to help reduce the number of endangered turtle species killed on Ontario roadways. The project was completed by collecting data on turtle locations and using ArcGIS mapping software, by Esri, to determine hotspot locations along a specific highway in Ontario. Once hotspots were determined, examination of literature was conducted to determine the best way to prevent road mortality. Finally, individuals from government and non-for-profit organizations focused on turtle road mortality were interviewed to help determine what is a realistic plan to combat turtle road mortality. In the area of focus, 4 hotspot locations were observed, and the most effective mitigation measures were determined to be a combination of a culvert and a drift fence. In terms of implementation, the jurisdiction over a roadway and whether mitigation measures will be put into place belongs to the proper road authority. However, when road construction impacts an endangered species, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry can enforce, under the Ontario Endangered Species Act, the road authority to implement mitigation measures. Throughout this project, areas for future research such as improving communication between groups involved in turtle road mortality, were also identified and noted., By Alison Flint, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre; Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre, FRSC 4080Y - Community-Based Research Project
