At Vimy Ridge Canadians proved themselves to be capable fighters, created a Canadian nationalism that had been lacking before, and showed the world that Canada was nation independent from Britain. The global recognition that Canada received for the work of the C.E.F. at Vimy Ridge also changed Canada’s role in the international political community. Due to Canada’s initial role in the world as part of the British Empire, Canada was an ally of Britain from the start and would remain allied with Britain even to today. So, what changed in the relationship between Britain and Canada?
Liberal Party leader, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, was elected as the fifteenth Canadian Prime Minister on June 25, 1968. Trudeau was able to act quickly and exhibit strong leadership towards the F.L.Q. crisis that had developed in Quebec. He had to invoke the War Measures Act, which suspended fundamental civil rights. Trudeau also constructed the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which allowed all Canadians to receive the essential human rights that they would regularly require.
Aucoin would agree with this plan because Justin is not over using his authority and is spreading the power into his parliament to make a real change in Canada while still staying within the rules and is keeping his word to Canadians. Mr. Trudeau plans or improving partnerships with provincial, territorially, and municipal governments are crucial in brining real change to Canada and the biggest relationship to fix is with Indigenous People in regards to rights, respect, co operations, and most importantly partnership. Also Justin Trudeau has committed bringing new leadership to Canada and one way he plans on doing this is by allowing more openness and transparency in government to shine the light on the government to show the people that they are there to serve the people and not themselves. Aucoin would agree with these set commitments because there is a clear objective of fixing relationships with no loopholes and he is serving for the population and not the

WWll started on 10/1/1939. The main enemies were the Germans and the Japanese. The Germans wanted all the Jews to die and to also wanted to expand their country and the Japanese wanted to expand their country as well. On December 7th, 1941, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. The Japanese bombing Pearl Harbor caused Japanese Americans to face discrimination.
Pearl Harbor created an overwhelming fear amongst the citizens of America of the Japanese.

In 1941, the battle of Hong Kong took place when the Japanese Imperial Army attacked Hong Kong. This attack focuses on Shing Mun Redoubt, which was a defense line for the British in Hong Kong that fell to the Japanese. The reason why Shing Mun Redoubt fell is debatable, as some believe that the Japanese were simply just too strong, but other believe that it was the lack of strength in the Ally’s defense line was the cause of this fall. Both of these reasons were supported by evidence, but to come to a complete conclusion, we will have to see which of these two reasons has the most evidence. Japan attacked Hong Kong as it was under Britain, which were their enemies, and it would be a jab to them if they lost, and the Japanese were on a train ride, with every stop being another success; after winning against China, a huge country, Hong Kong didn’t seem like a strong opponent.

When you think of internment camps in World War II and the discrimination of an entire race, you probably think of the Nazi’s mass genocide of the Jewish people. However, not nearly as often discussed or taught, was the American discrimination of Japanese-Americans in the form of Japanese-American internment camps during World War II. Due to the terrible attack on Pearl Harbor, the American public became paranoid of another attack on American soil and as a result of this, war hysteria overtook the country. Anti- Japanese paranoia increased due to a large Japanese presence in the West Coast. The American people thought of the Japanese Americans as a security risk in the event of a Japanese invasion of the American mainland.
That was because the United states were against the use of submarine warfare used by Germany That ment that all the ships would be attacked by Germanys navy.

In one attack this Japanese action silenced the heated debate that had divided Americans ever since the German defeat of France left England alone in the fight against the Germans. Americans sought revenge for the terror that had befallen them. The attack on pearl harbor was what finally allowed America to abandon its isolationist beliefs and enter the
