Firstly there is more terrorism in the United States than in Canada I can name two that almost everyone knows the Boston marathon and 911 but most people my age don't know or can't remember any terrorist attacks in Canada which is a good thing. Secondly Canada has a reputation as international peacekeepers and we have never started a war since we officially became a country in 1867 where as America has started and taken part in many conflicts they even started a war in Iraq without enough proof to do so. I hope the Canada will continue to be a safe and peaceful
Abi H. Civic Reflection Issue 1- Change in Point of View: In Canada, voter turnout has become a major issue; as there is a large amount of the population that does not vote in elections. Back in 2008, a total of 58% of the countries` population voted in the election. This is a startling low number, which since has begun to increase only slightly in recent years. In a democratic society, voting is essential for it to function with its full potential. Doing so enacts one of your basic responsibilities as a citizen, as well as shows that you are staying involved in your community and government.
My family is wealthy and has money to afford things and survive but Solveig's is very rich because her dad is the king and rules everyone. Even though they can't have the things that I have now because of the time period this book took place, at their time they can afford things people couldn't like food and clothes. And lastly, our families are both from different places. Solveig's family is from Norway because there are big mountains and fjords there and also her name and the rest of the names in the book are not names we would use in Canada. My family is form Portugal and Canada so there are no kings and queens.
In 1982, most Canadians agreed that the introduction of the Charter was going to monumental. But on the contrary, over 30 years later, numerous laws have been struck down by interpretation of the charter and remedial techniques that have been developed by courts. This corrupt system as some refer to it has many people confused and wondering what benefits are for Canadians. A specific case of the Charter being ineffective is the case Arsenault-Cameron v. Prince Edward
The United Nations is an international organization that promotes cooperation between countries and the world. Canada’s involvement in the United Nations has little to no effect because the United Nations has no power. Canada’s impact on the United Nations was insignificant due to corruption, problems in finance, and peacekeeping missions. Canada should not be involved with the United Nations and therefore should leave the organization. The United Nations is corrupt and due to this Canada does little or has no chance to contribute to the organization.
The FMLA law stands for the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993. This law helps cover some aspects of employee sick leave, what type of leave the employee is entitled to, and what laws and regulations that the employer should follow with all of its employees. This act helps employees by giving them all the way up to 12 weeks of unpaid sick leave for their own serious health problems/illnesses, the adoption or birth of a child, and/or to care for an ill child, spouse, or parent. This part of the act stipulates that any business with 50 or more employees must provide this service to all employees who qualify. In certain cases, the employer also has the right to utilize the qualifying employee 's paid annual or sick leave as a part of the whole
There were some pros and cons in regards to the Social Security Act, each individual had to pay taxes every year for the rest of their lives. Therefore, it caused complications with many people who didn’t concur with the agreement and for people who worked in the office. According sources from historysource.com, the New Deal laws were declared (going against something in the Constitution) by the U.S. Supreme Court on the grounds that neither the buying and selling of goods, nor the taxing (legal rules/food and supplies) of the Constitution granted the federal government authority to control
For example, they built mosques, churches and temples for the people of different cultures to visit. This had a very positive result, it made Canada a lot more diverse and multicultural. It helped keep the religions and cultures alive in the country and made sure those cultures don’t vanish from the
The Mariam-Webster dictionary defines culture as “the customary beliefs, social forms, and material traits of a group.” Though the majority of Canadians (over 90%) live within 100 miles of US-Canada Border, there are many stark contrasts in culture between the United States (US) and their neighbors to the North. Possessing some general knowledge and culturally awareness of any foreign territory will prove useful when adapting or visiting, this holds true the in the country of Canada. Examining key components of Canada, such as the citizens, government, military and general history, will help to understand the unique features of their culture. It is very important to be aware of different country’s cultures and walks of life. Although Canada is in some ways very similar to the United States of America there are some major differences that will be examined in the proceeding paragraphs.
Immigrants are also an important group to consider when defining Canada’s national identity as a multicultural nation. Canada has been taking immigrants and refugees for hundreds of years and will hopefully continue to do so. Each immigrant has a unique understanding of Canadian national identity as each is incorporated with different foreign cultures. Many immigrants value the freedom, rights, safety, and security that Canada provides them with. The Canadian opinion on migrants is mostly positive as this country was built and strengthened by immigration.
