Pierre Trudeau was one of Canada’s greatest Prime Minister’s, who’s impact fundamentally changed the course of the nation by introducing multiculturalism, for introducing the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and for paradoxically upholding democracy by strong action during the October Crisis. Canada is known globally for diversity and acceptance of different
Louis Riel should always be remembered as a heroic icon to Canadians. Though there is much controversy surrounding his heroism and villainy, Riel was an essential part of the development of Canada. Thanks to Riel, the Metis have received equal rights in our society; and formed one of Canada’s provinces, Manitoba. Riel was also one of the main reasons why the Canadian Pacific Railway was finalized and has been used to this day. Riel should undoubtedly be remembered as a heroic figure in
Today, Canada is seen as a multicultural and peaceful nation that has evolved over the course of history. This great nation would never have been possible without the impact that former Prime Minister, Lester B. Pearson left on this country. His achievements and insights profoundly affected and shaped Canada’s nation. First, peacekeeping is an important part of Canada’s heritage and a reflection of its fundamental beliefs that Pearson implemented after dealing with world changing situations and winning a Nobel Prize. Also, his contributions as a liberal leader as well as the flaws and controversy with Diefenbaker did in fact define this country.
At Vimy Ridge Canadians proved themselves to be capable fighters, created a Canadian nationalism that had been lacking before, and showed the world that Canada was nation independent from Britain. The global recognition that Canada received for the work of the C.E.F. at Vimy Ridge also changed Canada’s role in the international political community. Due to Canada’s initial role in the world as part of the British Empire, Canada was an ally of Britain from the start and would remain allied with Britain even to today. So, what changed in the relationship between Britain and Canada?
During 1914 to 1939, to a huge extent political, social, and economic changes contribute to increasing Canadian identity. When World War 1 (WW1) began, the social events had contributed to the Canadian identity which are the Conscription, Women and Change, and Technological Changes. Financing the War Effort, growing economy, and the Great Depression that happened had affected the economy in Canada. Last, The Battle of Vimy Ridge, Halibut Treaty, and New Political Parties had affected the political changes. During the time period of 1914 to 1939, the social, economic, and political changes that happened in Canada contributed to an improved sense of Canadian identity.
He has chosen to title his essay “Losing the War.” This however is not originally the title. The longer title is as follows; “World War II had faded into movies, anecdotes, and archives that nobody cares about anymore. Are we losing the war?” Albeit subtle subtle, this is perhaps one of the most powerful choices Sandlin made in his argument. He is suggesting that although the war is considered “won” in the history books, the trauma it caused —as the general nature of the war— is anything but victorious. He is also arguing that the American public is, actually, losing the war.
Canada has many events that had helped shape our country today. Some events were minor events, while some events had major parts in the creation of Canada. I think Confederation, The Rebellions of 1838 to 1838, and The Quebec Act of 1774, were all very important events in the history of Canada. Confederation was important because if Canada hadn’t joined together to form a strong alliance against enemies, their foes could’ve come in and stolen Rupert’s Land so a lot of what is now Canada would be part of the US. This would make Canada even weaker and the US would take the Maritime “provinces” and then attempt to take over the rest of Canada, and in the event it happened, Canada would no longer exist and much of North America would now be part of the US.
Yes, the Revolutionary War did cause a big change for some people’s daily lives in America, and yes, the 13 colonies did separate from Great Britain and become an independent nation, but for many, the war had little or no effect on their lives and rights. This war was not a “complete” change; it was a change for a group of certain people and only them. Women, African Americans, and people who were poor were not changed drastically by this war. They still faced the same circumstances and treatment by their society as they did before this war. Although, the colonies formed a new nation, the war truly, was not revolutionary for all.
The First World War had the most significant impact on the Canadian nation, changing it for decades to come. This is evident because of how Canada could be less respected if it wasn’t for their war contributions, how women’s rights could have been different or non-existent, and how Canada could not have gained it’s independence from Britain. In conclusion, World War One impacted Canada greatly
Finally, i’d say the biggest difference from the two is the man coming to the town to lay his father 's ashes on his mother 's grave. This happened in the movie and it made the story-line much longer and in my view more intresting. Him coming to this town, New Hope, shakes everything up. With the Lottery coming up and everyone trying to keep it a secret and doing everything possible to prevent him from laying his father 's ashes with his mother because of what he did at a previous Lottery. Little does this man what really goes on in this town and how much he affects it.
