When the British and French withdrew from the battle there would be a U.N force in the area so they could deal with the situation. This plan resulted in the ending of the Suez Crisis, Lester even won the Nobel peace prize. This shows Canada 's independence. If it weren 't for Canada the Suez Crisis ended. It is possible that a war could have occurred. Also this shows Canada is smart and tactical. Creating a plan that could end the Suez Crisis is ingenious. The Red Scare is an event that proves Canada’s independence. This event is Canada and the U.S’s mad hunt for communist. They would accuse many people of being communist or associating themselves with communist. Many would be put under suspicion even when they are innocent. This caused the destruction of many jobs as well. This event actually proves Canada’s independence.This is because Canada began searching for communist without anyone telling them to and they did this on their own. Joining the United Nations, the Suez Crisis and the Red scare are factors that make Canada independent
Reciprocity and free trade are two distinct debates which has occurred at separate periods throughout Canadian history. Both are periods in which the Canadian and U.S. governments attempted to broker a deal which would lower tariff walls and allow good to move smoothly between the countries. Reciprocity occurred in 1911 when the Prime Minister Laurier attempted to implement free trade with the U.S. Free Trade is prominently in terms of the 1980’s in which the government under Brian Mulroney wished to once again implement a free trade deal with the U.S. in 1911 free trade was defeated and the government of Robert Borden won an election on the issue. In 1988 once again an election was held on the issue of free trade, this time it was successful and implemented following the election.
Many historians and writers consider the Canadian victory at Vimy a defining moment for Canada, when the country emerged from under the shadow of Britain and felt capable of greatness.

Vimy Ridge was one of the greatest battles of Canadian history, it was part of the opening phase of the British-led Battle of Arras, a diversionary assault for the French Nivelle Offensive. This essay will describe the success of the Canadian troops, the battle’s significance, and the importance of the positioning with respect to the geography of the land.
The battle at Vimy Ridge was a defining moment in Canadian History because it gave Canada a sense of nationhood “The Battle of Vimy Ridge marked ‘the birth of a nation’ for Canada, says Governor-General David Johnston” (Postmedia news). It was the first time all four Canadian Corps fought together in the history of the war. The victory of ‘taking Vimy Ridge’ was celebrated, and two months later Viscount Julian Byng was promoted out of the Corps and Arthur Currie became the first commander of the Corps. The 60’000 casualties in the war, made Vimy the most symbolic of Canada’s overall sacrifices. This pushed Prime Minister Borden to ensure a separate representation at the Paris Peace Talks after the war. After the Battle at Vimy Ridge 4 Victoria

World war one has a huge impact even in today’s society because if it had no effect Canadians wouldn’t have Remembrance Day. We respect the soldiers that gave up their lives for this country which also tragically ruined families. The war lasted four years and the soldiers’ families and friends kept getting bad news or no news at all. Canadians all over contributed in some way feeling some loyalty towards Europe. Women would volunteer overseas as nurses and children took over the farms. The way of life for the common man in Canada had changed drastically.

After the failure at Dieppe, Churchill felt that the best way for the Allies to recapture Europe was through the “soft underbelly” of Europe, which is Sicily and Italy. The battle of Ortona happened in the Italy. Canadians were given the task of capturing the medieval town of Ortona on the Adriatic Sea. Apparently Canadians won the war, but the war also is brutal and bloody. Before they could reach Ortona, the Canadians had to capture several smaller villages, cross the river Moro, and fight across several kilometers of German-occupied territory. Once they reached Ortona, advance was slow and battles were often fought house by house. Which means they killed enemy in everywhere. Finally, Canada lost 6000 soldiers. It is an important mission that Canadian troops completed in WW2. Although they lose a lot of people but they won the war. It is a coast city of Italy, when they got the City, the Allies soldiers can enter Italy more easily. And supply can provide from the sea very easy to Italy. This battle was the first time that Canada uses their own division to attack Germany and no Allies help them, and they won the battle. It could increase the status of Canada in the Allies. So it also is a significant battle to Canadians in World War
Identity is an important part of our lifestyle. Showing our identity is a fundamental part of life; it is the way we communicate with each other. As citizens, we showcase our identity through our attire and statements. Nations use other methods to showcase their identity. Canadian identity has often been a popular theme with historians and social scientists over the years. However, not many have been able to identify a certain time period where Canadian identity has prospered. The postwar era and repatriation of Canadian constitution (1945-1982) best identifies Canadian identity. This is because this was the time Canada established its peacekeeping reputation and became independent.
