The idea of democracy is to let people choose their own leaders. In the case of the supreme court judges, they hold some of the most important decisions, without being elected. For me, this is a problem because as time changes and society evolves, the people running the country and making such decisions must have the same morals and ideas as the people living within the society. For example, as most of Canada accepted the idea of same sex marriage, it was still being decided in the highest courts even though society had already accepted it. Furthermore, I think that it is important for the judges to have the influence of society backing their decisions because if the judges are impartial to societies views, Canadian laws will no coincide with the mannerisms of the current and evolving society.
Likewise, banning this hunt would eliminate the traditional ways of life set hundreds of years back to the rural inhabitants. For them , this hunt is a vital way to endure survival physically and economically. Finally, seal hunting is done in a humane, regulated manner despite much of the negative influence shown to mislead the public about this hunt. Many are not aware, but seals are overpopulated enough already. The Canadian Seal Hunt is not only a blessing in disguise but a way to enable balance in the marine ecosystem.
Unluckily, Toure could not be deported due to the lack of proof of his citizenship in Guinea and they would not take him back. On top of his complicated situation, Toure still has to deal with Canada’s border police insisting that he is a high risk detainee because of his criminality in the United States regarding his non-violent issues 12 years ago. Four years later, Toure is still stuck in jail with no way of knowing when he will gain his freedom back. Toure thought that Canada was the best place in the world which is why he chose to come here. I believe that locking
The mass removal had also quite an impact on Indigenous communities as many of their traditions and cultures were disrupted. In the missions, they should have experienced some level of respect but it was the opposite, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children experienced abuse, neglect and mistreatment in the camps. An example of this is a testimony from Bill Simon who was a part of Kinchela Boys Home in New South Wales, “So, we were just little kids who were flogged, beaten, sent up the line, everyone had to hit you, about 100 guys had to hit you” (The Stolen Generations’ Testimonies, n.d.). Many children had developed many psychological issues after their time in the missions and institutes as they experienced many physical and sexual abuse in their homes. They feel out of place and shameful of their heritage, and were never experienced any parenting affections that they would have had if they were not taken away (Australians Together, n.d.).
This final straw caused the Hutu people to crave and have reason for revenge. The killing of their leader as well as another Hutu man was now dead. The Hutu people had felt the Tutsis had tried to over throw them too many times and shown too much disrespect to their people. The Tutsis treated the Hutus as if they were their political props to prove their points. The Tutsis treated the Hutus like objects not people, killing whoever was in there way of superiority and power.
In the film, the aboriginals were living alone peacefully, and were raising their kids, as culturally appropriate to them, but the settlers did not see it that way, they wanted to make the half-caste children become like them, and serve the whites (Noyce). The reasons that these two works are similar, is that the natives of their own places, were suddenly overpowered by these people, who thought they were better, and had their culture and the customs they practiced, stripped from
Sadly, the Native Americans didn 't enjoy people taking their land causing a lot of killing. Conquest Conquest is the act of forcefully taking control of land. The French couldn 't keep up with the demands back home due lack of land. Also, the Natives would threaten the habitants and raided their settlements. The French reacted by retaliating and destroying a few of their villages.
The meant set up farms let indigenous people work on it and survive off the produce. In other words changing the way Aboriginal people lived and trying to make them adopt white culture. However indigenous people could not get used to this life because they were traditionally nomadic and could not let go of their cultural ways. In 1911 the Board of Protection was given control over indigenous people, this meant that they were also the legal guardians of all Aboriginal children. The government believed that the best way to ensure all indigenous children were assimilated ( drops all customs and traditions and adopts dominant culture) into European society was to take them away from their families even if it meant taking them by force.
The Canadian Encyclopedia states “The experience was traumatic for many Aboriginal children, who were removed from their families and subjected to harsh discipline, the devaluation of their culture and religion, and even physical and sexual abuse” which shows how the culture of aboriginal has weakened, making many Aboriginals to question their self identity as they don’t understand where they came from and the roots their families were molded from. Many First Nation children felt distressed due to the isolation and loneliness when at these school. One example being, Chanie Wenjack, a student who ran away from a residential school as he missed his family and he later died due to starvation and the cold. This was the first death the government impacted on. The Canadian Encyclopedia reports that “students were isolated and their culture disparaged, removed from their homes and parents separated from their siblings” which is important to Canadian history as it leads to the greater percentage of depression in Aboriginal communities today.
In these boarding schools, indigenous people were forced to give up their family, culture and their way of life. Many Canadians have a different perspective on this, either that it was justified, unjustified or that they are unsure. This was not an acceptable way to treat or teach anyone. To me, residential things should stay in the past. They were a cruel thing and did no
