At the time, land speculators and surveyors laid out square townships and disregarded the strip lots the settlers were used to having. When Rupert's Land was purchased without any consultations with the settlers in the area. The Métis called for Riel, who was the leader of the Métis in the prairies at the time.

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.
The statue of Westminster granted full legal freedom and established Canada as an independent nation. Events were also branching out towards Quebec, such as the FLQ as well as the quiet revolution who wanted the french influence to be national.

Does intolerance within Canadian society develop due to the unwillingness of ethnic groups to assimilate to “Canadian” culture?
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.

The Queen, the POGG provision was applied solely because Canadian survival was at risk. This proves that the rules were so vague and ever-changing over the application of POGG powers that even the Supreme Court of Canada and JCPC disagree on the usage and interpretation. When both branches of the judiciary cannot come to an agreement about a power that is expansive and impactful as POGG, it only makes the case stronger for abolition of the POGG clause. Instead the judicial branch continued to enforce laws through the perspective of 1867 onto the Canadian

They saw little to no advantage of joining BNA and so they declined the offer. Edward Palmer, the premier of PEI from 1859 to 1863, and an anti-Confederation group both told the Charlottetown conference that there were advantages for BNA but none for
12) Jays Treaty was named after a man named John Jay. The British were seizing US ships and Washington sent Jay over to make the British stop. However, Jay returned with a “not so perfect” treaty. The treaty accepted Britain’s right to stop neutral ships, required the US to make “full and complete compensation” to the prerevolutionary war debts, allowed Americans to submit claims for illegal seizers, and required the British to remove their troops and Indian agents from the Northwest Territory. The stopping of the neutral war ships were the most unsatisfactory because it meant that they now had a trading alliance with Britain.
