Canada is talked amongst other countries throughout the world as a safe, secure place to live. Majority of people do not know the heinous crimes that take place in Canada daily, especially whilst using a gun. Canada does not come close to the United States when comparing mass shootings, death by a gun, or homicides using a gun; although, the gun crimes in Canada are not improving. While Canada has more stringent gun laws than the united states, gun control in Canada should still be improved for citizen’s safety. Canada is often praised for having more efficient gun laws than the United States, but most people do not know that Canadian laws too, have much room for improvement.
When thinking about purchasing food we are often told that buying local is better for the community as it puts the money in the pocket of a small business owner and not for a corporation's CEO to purchase their third vacation home. But, often what we don't look at is the other things we purchase like clothing, cars, beauty products and day-to-day items. It is very common that many household products are made in China, as it is a lot cheaper to manufacture things there and send them to our local Walmart or retail store for Canadians to consume. I wanted to see how many things in my day-to-day life are produced outside of Canada and what I buy that is produced in Canada. Of course starting with food, I often buy from the local market; unfortunately,
The conclusion of production left many of Canadians to fend for themselves, while the United States thrived with technology and innovation. In my opinion, it would be eye-opening for the Canadians to see their masterpeice not being able to soar in Canada, as it would somewhere else. It is eye-opening for Canada 's political and economic state to see them coming so far as a country, in an innovation that could have greatly surpassed anything in its time, not be possible. This was a realization that it is difficult for a "country the size of Canada to compete in the business of building costly weapons of war." And even to this day, it is hard for Canadians not to blame the United States for the destruction of the Arrow.
Slaves could go there, and be considered normal. They would still get weird looks since they are of different race, but people accepted them there. They were not judged as much, and they were not treated like animals. Canada was a kind of sanctuary for the fugitive slaves. It was a place they could
The growing competition however does provide consumers with several choices and for Air Canada to be efficiently and constantly drawing its consumer it must offer " money for worth" deals, such as new multi-pass product, holiday packages and other promotional deals that has not yet been utilized in Canadian market. The possibility of Buyer power is moderate. Threat of New Entrants: Air Canada can be considered a fortunate airline as it does not have any major threat from new entrant stepping in Canadian airline industry due to the strict government legislation and regulations. “Even though the entry barriers for new airlines are lower in a deregulated market, still prospect of a new entrant entering the market is weak to moderate. Rivalry:
Canadians are so used to this concept of freedom of speech that the government barely even bats an eyelash when it comes protests, democracy or change. A lot of Canadians take this for granted and some are even shocked when they hear that other people in the world get killed for speaking their mind. This culture of freedom has instilled an entitlement into Canadians even from when they were young, my daughter included. My daughter Sophie has grown up living a very privileged life, and sometimes look back and I’m amazed at the differences between our childhoods.
The differences between the United States and our neighbors to the north may seem nonexistent to some, but in my four years being around Canadian citizens I have noticed the cultural image of Canadians. It is a common perception that American and Canadian cultures are the same or similar. Even though saying our cultures are similar is technically not wrong there are definite differences in culture that Americans seem to be ignorant to. Canadian culture is the closest culture to us in the world and yet we still show ignorance towards the cultural divide between us. Living with two Canadians and having a social group consisting of multiple Canadians I have been exposed to the culture and have seen the differences.
70% of Canadians claim to have done a favor for their neighbor. Over 50% of Canadians believe that most of their fellow citizens can be trusted (Turcotte). And it’s no surprise because Canada has a certain reputation: it is harmless, void of all the unkindness that has claimed the United States since its creation.
but overall a very clean city. The city has an average amount of DUI offences. Overall, Ottawa is a very family friendly and a safe city to live in. Although the Syrian family will not be purchasing a car for a period of time, they will easily be able to get around the city.
Canada has different levels and branches of government for many different reasons, such as to help prevent corruption and to help locals solve local issues. First of all, is to prevent corruption. You can see easily if one person controls everything, things can get out of hand, such as countries like North Korea and the USSR. But when you split up the responsibility to lots of people, it becomes a lot harder to corrupt. For example, if one person in the government of a democratic country is corrupt, they won’t be able to do much as they are only one in thousands of civil servants.
Although Canada is known to be multicultural and inclusive, I have always faced a small feeling of isolation among the strong Western and Oriental stereotypes. For this project, I decided to display the “boxes”/stereotypes people often place me in, through a triptych. Starting from the left, I chose to show the perspectives my relatives in Malaysia (and the rest of the world) view Canada from. Stereotypes exaggerated by media display Canada as cold and lonely, yet peaceful.
Most importantly, Canadian speaks English, although it is not appropriate to the US level. But, still, they connect to the US. 5. The added advantage of Canada is the common system of currency which adds more benefits to the
Hanh Huynh Ms. Mathai ENG4U1 7 April 2016 Jane and Finch: The Media’s Deception Jane and Finch is a community that has a negative reputation built through the media. The media has exaggerated their stories, hiding the true nature of the neighbourhood. The real experience of the community is often ignored by outsiders who blindly follow the media resulting in stereotypes being formed. The truth is that Jane and Finch is the most outstanding place to live in because the living experience at Jane and Finch is by far the best one can have in Canada, with its multicultural community, beneficial opportunities and positive surrounding environment.
Ah Canada, the home of crackhead mayors, shitty hockey teams, bad weather and more apologies than citizens. Plus, it is the only country that lies in their own national anthem “The True North strong and free!” the only free thing being their healthcare because everything else is so overpriced. However, I would argue that Canada isn’t America.
Canada was inhabited by the Vikings first in the year 100AD. The Vikings as usual didn’t stay and left the Americas. Later in the 1500s and 1600s were taken over by the English and French. The French established many cities and the most important were Quebec and Montreal. They ruled the area “New France” for about 230 years.
