Pierre Trudeau was one of Canada’s greatest Prime Minister’s, who’s impact fundamentally changed the course of the nation by introducing multiculturalism, for introducing the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and for paradoxically upholding democracy by strong action during the October Crisis. Canada is known globally for diversity and acceptance of different
As the feeling of British identity radiated from England, the colonies began to reflect this identity and attempted to join in. They asserted their unwavering loyalty to the king in an attempt to be a part of the British nationalism.  However, this push to be a part of the identity led to the question of if being British was the same as being English.  Colonists began to question if they were truly seen as equal to the English. The American colonists had assumed they were viewed as equal since, they had fought against the French in Canada, participated in the same luxuries, and were an active part of the British market.
The uniqueness of this war stemmed in that it was a stalemate and the last of the North American colonial wars; strangely enough, it has been considered a success by Americans today. Overconfidence and assumption were stemmed from the success of the American Revolutionary War causing politicians to underestimate the ‘enemy’. These ideological flaws lead to the breakdown of a few of what are now known as the nine core principle of warfare. A lesson sorely learned was a lasting appreciation for military strength in preserving the freedom of the country and liberty of its citizens. 6 As the Secretary of the Treasury Albert Gallatin (1816)
The American Revolution was successful because it resulted in the creation of a new nation in America. On the other hand, British failed and this resulted in the loss of a part of its empire, and the sovereign land was granted to the Americans . These were some of the immediate effects of the revolution. The economy of America experienced instability and the position of the Native Americans, African Americans and women changed in the society. The freedom of the people was granted.
In order to answer these questions, Stein structures his text by categorizing the anglo-community profound change in political consciousness through labelling three phases: a phase of self-confident majority group consciousness; a phase of majority-minority group image dissonance and defensiveness; a phase of minority group positive self-awareness and action. The first phase of self-confident majority group consciousness can be tracked back after the Conquest, when British officials established their economic and political power over the residents remaining in Quebec. Stein implies that the self-confident majority group consciousness of Quebec anglophones was denoted by a sense of their exceptional educational and cultural upbringings, their higher overall average incomes and their commanding positions in the economy of Quebec (Stein, 2012, p. 110). However, the second phase of majority-minority group image dissonance and defensiveness took place during the Quiet Revolution. Stein alludes that the first turning point in transforming anglophones attitudes came with the enactment of Bill 22, which made French the only
However, recently, under the leadership of the Harper government, they have primarily been engaging in violent missions (Harper). I believe that this was the case because Harper wanted to strengthen ties with the United States, and war was a common ground. Strong ties with the United States would allow for Canada to grow its economy.
Lord Durham was a man with liberal beliefs who was sent to Canada to study the affairs of British North America. He was given the task of writing a report, which would give suggestions on how to solve the problems Britain was facing with its colony. His report shook the systems already in place and changed Canada forever. To some he is a hero, but to others he is very much disliked. Nonetheless, Lord Durham’s report directly led to the colonies of Upper and Lower Canada being united.
The British victory in the French and Indian War, which was also known as the Seven Year’s War, had a great impact on the British Empire. Firstly, it meant a great expression of British territorial claims in the New World and the cost of the war had greatly enlarged British depth. Also, from 1690 to 1760, a salutary neglect was issued where the England had little involvement in colonial
An ideology of revolution through an improvement of rights system was illustrated and discussed in Michael Ignatieff’s article “Democracy and Rights Revolution” (2000). He revealed that this transition, which started from 1960s, has effects both improving equality of the society and protecting one right for all people—the right to be different. Meanwhile, the author also pointed out that people who were granted the rights they asked for did not necessarily wish the same for others. As a result of rights revolution, Canada has become one of the most distinct countries, in which the rights cultures prevail, and it has a pivotal role in promoting the concept internationally as well. Rights revolution has significantly enhanced the inclusiveness
