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.

I. Introduction and Thesis A few years ago, in the spring and summer of 2012, Canada as a nation celebrated the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. In Ontario especially, where some of the most prominent battles took place, the remembrance of this war is vital to the preservation of the country’s history.

William Lyon Mackenzie King, a man of glory, forever changed Canada’s constitution during the tumultuous nineteenth century and resolved all difficulties Canada faced on its way to becoming a strong, independent, and autonomous nation. His contributions and sanctions targeted all factors at the time and had interrelated effects on the construction of Canada.

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.
Between 1890 to 1914, Canada was considered as a safe haven for Black settlers and refugees, and before that, for fugitive slaves.

It also shows how Canada puts its citizens first above everything else and realizes that it is not perfect, and thus strives to improve its nature, relationships, and lifestyles with
