The territorial form of their nationalism was, and still is, easier to follow for those who live there (having the same goals to feel more like a part of a greater community) and for newcomers. And as the Quiet Revolution was still encouraging the French to hold on to their beliefs of “free Québec”, more and more powerful groups that wanted independence were created like for instance Comité de Libération Nationale, which was strongly convinced that only vivid acts of violence will help to achieve what they believed in. That group and the Réseau de Résistance formed the FLQ – Front de libération du Québec.

When the war was finally silenced in 1918, it was during President Wilson’s second term as commander in chief when he came up a proposal called the Fourteen Points in an effort to address the victorious Allies to set unselfish peace terms with the vanquished Central Powers of World War I, including freedom of the seas, the restoration of territories conquered during the war and the right to national self-determination in such contentious regions. While all of Wilson’s points were not accepted, a few of them made it in the Treaty of Versailles . To start, President Wilson’s Fourteen Points were created in order to ensure national security and world peace. However, even before World War I ended, Wilson present his strategy for world peace.
Ultimately it allowed the founding fathers to recognized the weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation and fix the shortage of this prestigious paper. As the Constitution was ratified it offered solutions to all the problems the nation was facing and brought all thirteen colonies into one.

American invasion on Canadian magazine industries would cause the extinction of Canadian writing and a Canadian point of view.So If I were the president of Canada,first of all, I would create awareness among the country-men,if I were in the position of Canadian government.I would consider the one that contradicts with genuine Canadian culture, thoughts and social values as a foreign invasion to the country.A split-run magazine usually contains large proportion of materials that does not go with the domestic culture so I would ban those.And also levy high tax on others that circulate throughout the

These documents were created to unite the country together during its time of confederation along with helping to create unity for any of the new provinces that would continue to join the confederation of Canada up until the late 1990s. For many Canadians, however, it has begun to seem as though these once unifying documents are now creating more of a divide around the country rather than unification; this divide can often be seen throughout many of the Quebec separatist movements that have occurred over generations. This creation of a divide across the country, mainly in Quebec, has shown that
Linda in her study elaborates that it could simply separate Canadians in three kinds: native Canadians, migrants from former suzerain and migrants from other countries. As a native Canadian, Linda thinks that they could not ignore the experience of colonization that made Canada becomes marginalization through post-colonialism.
