In Canada, the KKK was anti-Jewish, in Quebec anti-French, in Saskatchewan, anti-Asian in British Columbia, and anti-foreigners everyplace.

Thank you for purchasing the most significant Canadian symbol – “The National Flag of Canada”, also known as the Maple Leaf. Symbols not only represent the feature of a person, an object or an event, but also, they can carry a nation’s first impression. As an essential national emblem, a flag units "all the citizens without distinction of races, languages beliefs or opinions.

Making Canada great Again From 1942-1949 the Canadian government was responsible for the cruel internment of Japanese citizens in Canada. Ever since the first sailor Manzo-Nagano arrived in New Westminster, BC Japanese have experienced prejudice. Early BC settlers were extremely conscious of there ethnic origin and were extremely concerned with the racial origins of immigrants, they became obsessed with eliminating “undesirables” and as a result passed laws preventing them from voting, working in mines and other government funded projects. On Dec 7th 1941, Following the bombing of Pearl Harbor killing 2403 Americans, 22,000 Japanese Canadians were disposed of there property and belongings and were evicted to various internment camps.

In many countries, conflict between different groups of people is inevitable. In Canada, the divide between English-speaking and French-speaking regions has been a prominent political and cultural topic since the birth of the nation.

One of those parties is the Bloc Quebecois.
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.
