In 1965 Lester Pearson presented Canada 's new flag, in light of the fact that the Red Ensign was excessively British, making it impossible to be the image of advanced Canada. Numerous residents opposed for having another banner both for reasons of tradition and they were persuaded that Pearson was pressured into it and didn 't really need another banner. English Canadians needed to keep the Red Ensign yet on February 15, 1965, when Canada 's new banner was raised on Parliament Hill surprisingly, all that they were loaded with, was pride and affection. Pearson and the French Canadian needed another banner yet Diefenbaker and the Conservatives needed to keep the Red Ensign to demonstrate a tiny bit of British representation. So the Liberals
The U.S. culture is very similar to Canadians as we are exposed to it all the time in media sources. The events in American history have also affected Canada from a political perspective, which lead to the Democracy that is present today. Another way the U.S. has affected Canada is from a military perspective because Americans are quick to jump to war and Canada has had to help control them which lead to them being peacekeepers. The United States helped mold the Canadian identity by being both a threat and support to the nation; this will continue into the 21st century but Canada will keep it’s unique identity. A country 's culture can be seen as interchangeable with identity; in Canada there is evidence of American culture everywhere.
The judicial branch of Canada has played one of the most unique roles in history due to their shaping of Canada. The decisions rendered by the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council (hereby referred to as the JCPC) and the Supreme Court of Canada impacted the values of Canadian citizens. These decisions were often contradictory and exposed the legal system as flawed, inflexible and stubborn. Throughout the decades the judiciary sought to maintain rules crafted by the Fathers of Confederation in 1867, rather than adopt more effective standards for judgement. The Canadian federal and provincial powers were broken into sections 91 and 92 in the British North America Act of 1867.
Colonialism is a perpetual and relevant issue in Canada. The definition of Colonialism is, “The policy or practice of acquiring full or partial political control over another country, occupying it with settlers, and exploiting it economically” according to the Oxford dictionary (The Oxford Dictionary, 2018). On a small scale, Canada is influenced by Britain as British Commonwealth; the consequences that preceded the colonization are evident in the contrast of the standards of living between the general populations and Aboriginals. Colonization can also be or continue with, “geographical intrusion in the form of agricultural, urban or industrial encroachments” (LaRocque, 2008). The freedom of religion in Canada relies on the Eurocentric view
Captain Campbell felt uneasy about the new rules and laws the British had put into place, knowing that this might upset the Native Americans. As tension grew there was talk of how the French and the Spanish were going to unite to push the British out of North America. This talk had gotten many Indians to prepare for war and to choose sides of the war that might become. Chief Pontiac had felt that he must stay loyal to the French who had shown him generosity and kindness. He felt that the French had better ties to his people and would ultimately be better to his people than the British.
They do not recognize that they are allowing their own domination to take place because they want the best for their children and rightfully so. Once their children attend the school that teaches the British curriculum, they will also reproduce these hegemonic ideologies. As seen in the previous example, race plays a major role in why these parents prefer the British curriculum over the Nigerian curriculum. The white man’s invention will always be seen as remarkable compared to the black man’s invention. Hence, race and identity work together to reproduce hegemonic
Most important, James Madison and America in war. For Madison and the War Hawks, the declaration amounted to a second war of independence for the new Republic. It also provided the opportunity to seize Canada, drive the Spanish from west Florida, put down the Indian uprising in the Northwest, and secure maritime independence. In the preparations for battle, it became clear that most of the War Hawks wanted a land invasion of Canada above all else. Accordingly, the United States moved quickly to mount an offensive against Canada.
Catholicism and the Ku Klux Klan The early 1900s was a time of change in technology, education, and way of life for the American people. However, with change comes resistance, which was especially seen in Texas with the uprisings of the Ku Klux Klan. The Ku Klux Klan’s hatred went beyond simply that of Negros and settled on people of the Catholic Religion as well. They used propaganda such as books, flyers, and pamphlets in order to get rid of Catholicism, as the KKK considered people of the Catholic faith to be loyal only to the Pope of Rome and not the United States. The KKK struggled and ultimately succeeded in gaining political advantages in order to gain more influence in the United States, as well as to help avoid punishment for their prosecution of the Catholic people and their property.
In lines 16, 40, and 80, Yeats repeats the phrase “A terrible beauty is born.” It is apparent that Yeats yearns to see his community free and lively again one day. In order for that to happen, the Irish would have to overthrow the British. With rebellion and war comes a lot of bloodshed. Yeats sees the beauty in the face that his neighbors are willing to fight for what they believe in. However, Yeats didn’t like the violence that came with the Irish’s fight with the British.
These Symbolizing explains how the rebels dilute and remove a sense of sin against their violence. The third factor to be considered is that there were different notions of attitudes to the protestant, feelings of loyalty, and a person who should govern Ireland in the rebels. In order to accomplish their aim and strengthen the cohesiveness of the group, the leaders of the rebels were driven into the need to organize them under their control. For example, Sir Phelim O'Neill, who was a leader of the rebellion, present a forge commission from the king to control his people and enhance his power, but his subordinates exploited it for their violence. In general, the elites of the rebels attempted to control their members in several ways like introducing policies with a clear ethnic or religious antagonism, and the popular rebels utilized it.
Seymour believed that another referendum was coming and that this one would result in a sovereign Quebec, which was both a legal and justified outcome. Seymour stresses the negative impacts that being part of Canada has had on Quebec: an illegitimate constitution, economic under development, and attempts at assimilation. Pelletier, however, believes that the best place for the Quebec nation is within the Canadian one. The economic issue, that Seymour stresses very hard, Pelletier brushes off as of secondary concern. The constitution that Seymour points to as illegitimate and therefore nonbinding, Pelletier sees as the basis for recognition of Quebec nationalism.
