This essay will prove that graduating students in Ontario should only study Canadian literature in a Grade 12 English course. While good writers exist in all cultures, Ontario students should only study Canadian writers. Because we need to become more familiar with our literature. Three reasons for this are; the need to focus on our own Canadian culture despite being surrounded by other cultures, the need to promote and establish our own writers, and the need to encourage younger Canadian authors. Students in Ontario taking English should only study Canadian literature because we are completely swamped by the American culture around us.
Often what is studied from Canadian literature is usually very old and does not appeal to the young readers of growing generations. For example, Fifth Business, which was published in 1970, over 35 years ago, is still studied in Grade 12 classrooms. The most recent books would be Atwood’s Handmade’s Tale from 1985. Now if you put these books side by side to literature from the 20th century, students are more likely to pick what is newest to their day and age. They wouldn’t find what happened centuries ago to be interesting to read about.
Canadian individual identity is questioned often because it is so diverse and means something different to each person in Canada. Although there is not a set identity there are many values and beliefs that are owned by all Canadians. To find out what Canadians identity is, one has to take into account what has affected it. The United States is the biggest influence on Canadian identity. The U.S. culture is very similar to Canadians as we are exposed to it all the time in media sources.
Most of these loyalists could not go to different states in America because of what they are withholding with the king of Britain. They were migrated mostly to Canada because the King of Britain owned it during those American revolutionary war. They also faced the harsh feelings of being doubt by the Americans. They soon felt that they are losing the on well- being a person stepping on the lands of Americans because of being loyal to the king. They may not great decision in life, but they still managed to live their own life as a citizen who could not put disloyal to the King that once promised about their freedom and peaceful life in the new nation.
Dress code is a crucial part of school since it teaches good habits while preparing you for the later in life and creating a feeling of equality. In most schools today there is no dress code, but that needs to change. There are tons of cases of bullying in schools all across America. By enforcing a dress code it can unify students and ultimately help them in the long run. Not only does the dress code lessen bullying, it ingrains good habits for later in life.
Everyone says that it’s so hard, or so much work, but if you stay on task and pay attention in class it’s not that bad. I was one person to struggle in middle school grade wise, but since I was told that high school would be so much harder, I’ve paid a lot more attention in class and done all my work. Another thing I would tell the current eight graders, is that you don’t need friends to get through high school. It’s understandable if you want to have friends so you’re not lonely all the way through high school, but you don’t need them and its better if you don’t have them so it’s easier to pay attention in classes and get more work done
In general, I believe that the answer to this question really depends on the immigrant that you are interviewing because different immigrants have different experiences (different factors or reasons for why they immigrated to Canada and how they felt after coming to Canada because different immigrants have different opinions about Canada as a country). An example of such a difference in opinion is the following; some immigrants prefer the multiculturalism and the diversity in the cultures/religions that exist in the Canadian society, whereas other immigrants dislike the multiculturalism. However, if I consider only my father, Monirul Islam’s, case and immigrant experience, then I believe that his experience was very memorable and life-changing
“To deny people their human rights, is to challenge their very humanity.” -Nelson Mandela Canada is well known across the world for handling its national challenges well, yet has not been obeying the human rights. The human rights were made so everyone was equal and no one had higher power. According to Canada.ca, Canada is a founding member of the United Nation, (UN) and is a party to seven principal United Nations human rights conventions and covenants. Principal United Nations human rights conventions and covenants are treaties, and covenants are agreements, while parties are A group of voters organized for the purpose of influencing governmental policy. The human rights also required an agreement to the 30 rules which Canada agreed
Consequently, I decided to come to Canada. Moreover, too much study competition in Korea motivated me to come to Canada. The most schools performed relative evaluation; thus students were forced to compete with their friends for the best grade. I would like the discussion study sharing different ideas with classmates, because I could understand contents exactly through my friend’s explanation. In Canada, many studies are usually performed by discussion.
Two of the theories of leadership are transactional and transformational. Transactional leadership is setting clear expectations of an individual and using rewards or punishment to achieve results, while transformational leadership is identifying the need for change and trying to achieve the change. Two Canadian public administrative leaders who show these leadership skills were Tommy Douglas and Sir George Arthur French. Tommy Douglas was able to show transformational leadership through creating healthcare, Canada-wide pension plan and bargaining rights for civil servants; while Sir George Arthur French was able to show transactional leadership by leading his men across western |Canada, and he showed transformation leadership by challenging the Canadian government. Tommy Douglas would have been seen as a great leader in the Behavioural Era due to his ability to identify the need for change and the betterment of society; however, he would have not been seen as a great leader in the Personality Era due to him alienating the Saskatchewan doctors in his healthcare implementation.
Canada is a democracy so the belief is in being equal and fair, thus Canada put these beliefs into effect by creating the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms using the Equality Rights section. So if the Canadian population was asked if it is reasonable for its politicians to prohibit citizens from wearing certain religious symbols, the answer would be no. On the other hand, if another country were to be asked this question the answer may
Sikhs migrated to Canada after the attack on the Golden Temple, by the Indian Government. Sikhs went to Canada in search for a new life and to escape persecution by the Indian Government. (cited from: http://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/sikhism/) Instead of Canada joining with India and banning Sikh from entering their country they allowed them settle there and allowed them to become citizens.
Many Canadians know the senate to be “the sober second thought” of the parliamentary system. The senate’s original purpose was to be a voice for regional interests, a representation of Canadian society, and to address legislative bills. Despite the fact, it has never successfully accomplished its original purposes. Many Canadians believe that the senate serves no real purpose, but this is because the senate has no dominant powers when it comes to performing its functions. In this essay, I argue that the Canadian senate appointment process of senators should be reformed.
