Canadian Magazines 1) To what extent do you think the U.S.-Canadian magazine dispute was motivated by genuine desires to protect Canadian culture? In determining if the Canadian government was acting to genuinely to protect culture, it is important to be clear on what culture is. The dictionary definition of culture is the beliefs, customs, arts, etc., of a particular society, group, place, or time. (Merriam-Webster) The question must be, then, to what tangible merit does acting to preserve a culture give a government? As far as the interests of the Canadian government go, how does defending Canadian culture further its interests as compared to defending the economic impact of foreign influences?
For instance, (1) what guarantees that the voter turnout on such an issue could be satisfying enough to consider outcomes to be real reflection of the Canadian citizens on the matter; (2) regardless the election turnout, citizens might go for a “yes” without considering the negative consequences that could be associated with their yes, including job losses. In case they enjoy US magazines more than Canadian magazines, a “yes” could come out a winner, to the detriment of Canadian economy. It is the right of the Canadian citizens to read their preferred magazines, but on the other hand, it is also the responsibility of the Canadian government to ensure the economy prospers. So, a balance is ideally needed. Sometimes, issues concerning domestic economic policies should be left to the government to solve, especially in a civilized society where the government has been democratically elected and has transparency in its
To the average moviegoer, the world of Canadian cinema is a mysterious (and probably fictional) landscape. Besides obvious outliers, such as David Cronenberg, Canadian filmmakers seem to have a horrible time breaking into the mainstream. Furthermore, it 's quite rare to come across a movie that showcases Canada as a real place, instead of a frigid land of funny-sounding stereotypes, or a hidden stand-in for New York or Los Angeles. Is it even worthwhile to document the film history of Canada, as a separate and valuable entity? Jim Leach, the author of Film in Canada, seems to think so.
This assumption, however, is based on a traditional and in many ways outdated view of how a country represents itself, and has an impact, in global politics today. Simply put, it is all too territorial. Why do individual Canadians need to be attached to a particular organization, based on Canadian soil, in order to serve Canadian objectives? (And why is it a problem if Canadian interests coincide with those of other actors?) We should not really care who gets credit for the good work, only that the good work gets done.
A recent complaint filed with the B.C. Human Rights Commission argues that “the practice of polygamy reduces Canada to the same shameful level as third-world countries where polygamy is common and women are children are regarded as chattels” (Mansbridge). Surely, Canadians cannot equate these violations of human rights with the religious freedoms provided for in the Charter. Rebecca Cook of the International and Reproductive Health Law Program at the University of Toronto agrees, contending that there is “a distinction between religious beliefs and religious
“Doing outdoor activities is a stress reliever and it is a chance for us to bond with our friends and families. It also makes us healthy and it prevents us from having illnesses.” - Gadwin In 2007, Gadwin and his Family migrated to Canada from the Philippines. They migrated to Canada because they knew that Canada offers many opportunities for them to have a better life. But, living in a totally different place could be hard, Gadwin faced common challenges for newcomers. He got problems in adapting to the culture, lifestyle, and weather here in Canada.
When people opt for these discounts, it is important to check if they are duty free. Some discount Canadian cigarettes sound cost-effective at first. However, if shipping and handling charges are added, t the discount does not essentially reduce prices. Discount Canadian cigarette offers often attract new customers and may effectively influence users to switch brands. This is because smoking is a compulsive habit.
Technicalities are an issue that the world forgets again and again, because technically Canada is not an independent democracy. The Queen must sign off on every single piece of legislature that leaves Parliament, and since that would be impractical the Governor General represents the Queen and signs every bill. This means that without Royal ascent, no bill can become law in Canada. This is contradictory to the equality of other bodies of power. The very concept of democracy is contradictory to that of a monarchy, and technically Canada is still under the sovereignty of the
Here are some reasons why confederation was a significant part of history. Reason number is so that Canada would gain independence from Britain. The colonies were under britain laws and they wanted to get rid of that so they wanted to get rid of that, Britain was also going to stop funding the colonies meaning that since Canada joined they didn’t have to worry about Britain
There are twice as many doctors in Spain than there are in Canada, which means the demand is lower in Spain. That gives me a lower chance of being hired. This proves that Canada is the best candidate for me. I need to leave Cuba as soon as possible so my family and I can live the life we’ve always wanted. I think Canada was the right decision, it will be easy to get a job, I will have good pay, and we will be
(Culture, n.d., p.17) Additionally, I believe Canadian companies would prefer to advertise in Canadian publications if they were fundamental to preservation of Canadian culture. To what extent do you think the government of Canada was pressured to seek to protect its market because of the financial interests of the Canadian magazine industry?
The SINP makes entering Canada and become a citizen easier to do, but many people may be left asking, why should I become a Canadian citizen? Due to its place a large, developed nation that is on friendly terms with most countries of the world, Canadian citizenship confers a number of rights, privileges, and benefits. The Rights of Canadian Citizens All Canadian citizens are protected by the Canadian Bill of Rights, a federal law passed in 1960. The Canadian Human Rights Act of 1977 expands these protections to include other areas, particularly employment, housing, and commerce. Saskatchewan also has its own Bill of Rights, which it made law in
