The Canadian Pacific Railway was built to help make this happen, but the North-West Rebellion broke out. This rebellion took place in today’s Saskatchewan and Alberta The North-West rebellion was mainly fought by the Metis peoples, directed at the Canadian government as they felt that Canada was not protecting their rights and their land to the extent they agreed through treaty. Big Bear was the head chief of the Metis people, he was striving for a United Cree Nation and to discuss the agreement on treaty six and see if they could adjust it. Big Bear felt that they were not given enough as it was their land originally and they should be able to take what they want. The Metis and Aboriginals were only given about 640 acre of land through treaty six.
Some Canadians have a strong feeling about the things that are decided by the local government and that is the rights to express their own opinions. “We have a history of peaceful dialogue and dissent in Canada. I’m certainly hopeful that tradition will continue"(Rabson). Jim Carr commented about the angered anti pipeline movement and particularly the first nation communities, many of them mis-interpret the comments as a threat against all protesters. But the point of the Natural Resources minister that we have the freedom to express a different view from
For instance, WWII was an effort from Germany to expand the reign of imperialism, however they were not able to accomplish this. If there was a chance that Germany won, Canada would’ve been molded to be a different country in consideration to what it is today. For instance, there would be little to no freedom and uncountable amounts of rules for the actions that were done by the people. The national language would have been German, but even if Canada won whatsoever and the statue of Westminster never existed then Canada would have been under the British power. The statue of Westminster granted full legal freedom and established Canada as an independent nation.
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.
Canadian farmers and miners shipped their products overseas for a good price. Another honorable moment for Canada was when the during the beginning of the world war 2 kings opinion and thought was about keeping Canada along side the British in order to claim victory, it proved that the king knew about the strength and the capabilities of the Canadian men and soldier, an year after fighting along with Britishers Canada spend time with the US resolving the problem, the ties between two nation started getting stronger and hence they
Natashia Apangchan Canadian Identity As an immigrant, and of the 7 years that I’ve stayed here in Canada, I’ve come to know some of the Canadian identity. I have lots on mind but the things that stand out the most is that Canadians are so patriotic and generous, and diverse. To me, I see the Canadians as patriotic because their love for their country is very strong. I have seen the pride in their eyes when they say that they are Canadian. The way they cheer for their athletes, during the Olympics and other sports, shows how proud they are to wear the red and white maple flag to support them.
The 1960 Bill of Rights, by Prime Minister John Diefenbaker, was the previous attempt at introducing basic freedoms and protecting human rights to Canadians. Though the Bill of Rights had federal authority, it was not part of the Constitution and did not apply to provincial legislation. Trudeau’s plan was to include the Charter of Rights and Freedoms into the Constitution in order to make it virtually unchangeable by future governments. The Charter would give the Supreme Court ultimate authority over interpreting the Constitution and its amendments. This was a concern for the provinces as it was another way they felt a loss of control.
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.
The JCPC’s ruling in Board of Commerce, solidified the changing interpretation of Russell v. The Queen. In Board of Commerce, the federal government argued that although wartime had passed with the end of World War One in 1918, they needed to expand their powers and regulate financial markets. As a result, the government passed legislation to control distribution and sale. This legislation greatly impacted Canadian citizens economically and regulated numerous markets. In 1921, the JCPC examined this case with the federal government claiming emergency to avoid price gouging and monopolies.
Another historical event that caused both John Wheelwright and John Irving to move to Canada was the dislike of the Reagan Administration. Moving to Canada was in their minds, a way to escape what they would call injustice. However, moving to Canada may have been part of God’s true plan for Irving and Wheelwright to find
Sikhs after being Canada started asking for an Independent nation called Khalistan. The Hindus didn’t want this to happen but and went generally unnoticed by the Canadian Government. The Canadian government, at one point even decided to negotiate with India and refused to deport illegal Sikh immigrants, the Canadian government also pushed the Sikhs into gaining residency in Canada. The Canadian government believes the bombings were part of a conspiracy by British Columbia-based Sikh extremists to take revenge against the Indian government for its 1984 storming of the Golden Temple, a Sikh shrine. The Indian government sought to flush out armed Sikh extremists fighting for a separate Sikh homeland.
Former Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau was against the distinctive status for any group of people, and desired to eliminate Aboriginal people as a separate group (Coates, 2008). He also wished to have them involved into the broader Canadian political society. He proposed to incorporate Aboriginal people into the Canadian society, thus eliminating any special status and treatment to the Aboriginal people (Coates, 2008). Furthermore, in 1969, the Government of Canada produced a policy paper generally recognized as the White Paper. This paper called for abolishing the Indian Act.
Liberal Party leader, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, was elected as the fifteenth Canadian Prime Minister on June 25, 1968. Trudeau was able to act quickly and exhibit strong leadership towards the F.L.Q. crisis that had developed in Quebec. He had to invoke the War Measures Act, which suspended fundamental civil rights. Trudeau also constructed the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which allowed all Canadians to receive the essential human rights that they would regularly require.
