Living in Canada, we as Canadians take pride in our culture, kindness, hospitality, and sports. Everyone around the world views both Canada and Australia as kind, multicultural caring countries that accept refugees from war torn-nations. Although Canada and Australia are looked as peace-keeping countries, in the past the governments of both nations made a number of laws that had a major impact on the Aboriginal youth. I believe that the same piece of land we formed our country on is the same land built on blood, mistreatment, and oppression. To discover information on the treatment of aboriginal youth by the governments of Canada and Australia, as well as the similarities and differences of treatment, we must take a closer look back at both countries history and also at the period when the Juvenile Delinquent Act was enacted.
He retired on July 10, 1920, and was the third Nova Scotian to hold this office. Borden died in Ottawa due to congestive heart failure on June 10th, 1937. Without Borden’s crucial efforts during World War I, Canada would have never been an independent power. After successfully becoming Prime Minister, Borden promised not to use conscription. However, after a period of time, there were fewer Canadian recruits, and he decided conscription would be necessary
Tons of these people have lost everything that were close to them including family and friends, homes etc. Although these horrid things have happened to them, the people of Canada have to be cared for first. There are many security risks of accepting refugees into Canada, because some of these refugees might be part of a terrorist organization with a mission to cause harm to Canadians. A woman named Rehab Dughmosh ( Syrian ) has been arrested for attacking people at a Canadian Tire store. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police ( RCMP ) have laid terror-related charges against her, including an attempted murder in benefit or association with a terrorist group.
The war involved more than thirty countries. Fifty million people died and millions were injured. When the Germans lost World War I they lost many lands and so the Germans wanted to seize some lands and so they invaded many countries including Poland, Austria and much more. That’s when the war began. When the Germans invaded Poland, France and Britain declared war on Germany because of their pact with Poland.
For example, they built mosques, churches and temples for the people of different cultures to visit. This had a very positive result, it made Canada a lot more diverse and multicultural. It helped keep the religions and cultures alive in the country and made sure those cultures don’t vanish from the
In 1969, the Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and his Liberal government made the contraception legal in Canada. But, they only allowed abortion under the situation that the mother's life is in danger. That was some progress, but that was far too little for the Pro-Choice supporters like abortion activist Dr. Henry Morgentaler who announced he has performed over 5000 abortion surgeries for women from all over the country. After 20 years of legal battles, finally, in 1988, The Supreme Court of Canada abolished Canada's abortion law as unconstitutional. Because it is against the Section 7 of the Charter of Rights and Freedom：A woman's right to life, liberty and security of a person.
The impact of WW2 played a major role in helping Canada become a more strong, united nation, with equality, respect, and human rights. To begin with, before WWII there was lots of discrimination shown towards minority groups and many other cultures in Canada and because of this Canada created some inhumane mistakes. Canada allowed internment, allowed residential schools, and violation of human rights. When the Holocaust started it was like an eye opener for Canadians because they started to experience what the Holocaust underwent. This made Canadians realize that what they had done was wrong.
Prior to the coming of Europeans, diversity has existed in Canada so it has always been a part of Canada. The presence of multiculturalism in the society represents a form of reminder of how Canada was founded. According to a research, about 71% of people said they are proud to be Canadian due to the fact that, people from different cultural groups in Canada get along and live in peace (Parkin & Mendelsohn,2003,p.10). Also, 65% of immigrants say that multiculturalism makes them very proud to be Canadian, in comparison with 52% of non-immigrants (Parkin & Mendelsohn,2003,p.11). In addition , 81% of immigrants are very proud to be Canadian because people from different cultural groups in Canada get along and live in peace ,compared with 68% of non-immigrants (Parkin & Mendelsohn,2003,p.11).
Historical, educational, and influential, Auction of Souls was showed in over twenty-three states and in London. Many critics believed that everyone should have watched this emotional film; however, some states banned the movie because it was too horrific and gory. Eventhough, there are only little portions of the movie left today, it raised the spirits of many victims of the genocide who wished for people around the world to be informed about the dreadful scourges many of them had to fight through. At the end, Aurora’s book and movie raised over 20 million dollars, which she donated to Near East relief programs that helped more than 60,000 Armenian orphans. Aurora Mardiganian is a symbol of survival, unconditionally love for a homeland nation, philanthropy, and winning over human evil.
In chapter 15, “Self-Help in Hard Times”, Zinn’s overarching point is that unity among workers was not simple to achieve, and that white supremacy was a powerful, deadly force after the war. To support and further discuss these concepts, Zinn points out how relations between the American Federation of Labor and the Industrial Workers of the World were often tense, how city life often changed drastically during times of strike, and how immigration laws during the twenties began to favor Anglo-Saxons. One such way Zinn showcases these ideas is by describing how drastically life changed for cities when workers went on strike, hoping for an increase in their wages. As the strike continued on throughout February of 1919, Zinn recalls how all services, except for those that were consider essential to daily life, ceased. This was most likely due to the fact that when the shipyard workers decided they must go on strike in order to be heard, they did not wish to make the lives of other working men and women like themselves any harder than they needed to be, so they set up ways that services such as the fire department continued running.
To begin with, intitionally being apart of the British Empire, Canada had spectific view on appropite immigrates. Since the early times, discrimiation has greatly affected the immigration policy. Due to factors like various cultural beliefs and religious differences, series of notorious refusals decisions were made; which lead to damaging concequences for those immigrant 's. In particular, the refusal of the ship the St.Louis carrying 930 Jewish refugees in 1939; ultimately sentencing three-quarter of its passengers to death under the Nazi regime. The Chinese head tax was targeted toward the immigrants from 1872; impacting the cause of prohibition of all Chinese immigrants in 1923.
Another way the Canadian Government ineffectively responded to Aboriginal affairs was through the social issues the Aboriginals dealt with. One example of this would be the Sixties Scoop. Prior to the 1950’s, children were taken to residential schools, where they were forced to forget their Native culture, and were punished if they attempted to do otherwise. In the late 1950’s, people started to realize the negative impacts the residential schools had on the children, as well as their families. This led to the drastic overrepresentation of Aboriginal children in the child welfare system in the 1960’s.
From then until now, has the government improved our land, or slowly destroyed it? Over the years, each different leader, and each different party have dealt with, debt, drought and poverty, therefore, the government may be sinking us into a deep, dark hole of problems and concerns. Back in 1969, Pierre Trudeau, had Canada in a good place with a deficit of only $677m, until in a matter of about a year, there was a deficit of $10.9b. That is a crazy
In studying Albert Speer, one must account for the changing nature of history through introduction of new information and evidence with each new generation of historians and scholars. In Albert Speer’s case, his interpretation originated from his penitence at the Nuremberg Trials and later developed through contradictions made by historians as evidence and information was exposed in regards to the man “who was too deep for his own good”. At the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal, Speer presented a remorseful face to the world, pleading ignorance. This efficiency was rarely questioned, with many believing he increased production by 300% between 1941 and 1944. Early Speer historians endorsed this view.
The experiments performed by German physicians during World War II were torturous, unethical, and unreasonable when considering better ways in which the research could have been conducted. Experiments were performed on non-consenting camp prisoners by physicians attempting to improve soldier survival rates and further knowledge in lesser-explored medical fields (Coleman et al. 16). Experimentation to find a cure for Malaria was performed from February 1942 to April 1945, during which time prisoners were infected with malaria and treated with different drugs in order to find the best cure. Coleman notes, “Over 1,000 involuntary subjects were used in these experiments.
