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.
The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is an effective tool to ensure and maintain a just society as it protects the innocence of people, protects and ensures past laws and states fundamental freedoms, all of which work to create a thriving society. Before the Charter, many people may argue that Canada was a free and democratic country. Canadians had the freedom of expression, equality and the principles of fundamental justice. What changed with the creation of the Charter was that rights and freedoms were given constitutional status, and judges were given the power to strike down laws that infringed on them. In 1982, most Canadians agreed that the introduction of the Charter was going to monumental.
3.Multiculturalism is an ethnic diversity, where in a community contains multiple cultures. As of today, Canada recognizes the potential of all Canadians, the belief of all citizens are equal, keeping their identities and showing acceptances. Showing acceptances in Canadians is from taking pride in their ancestry, feeling secure, self-confidence and accepting diverse cultures. In the T.V shows, I watch was all crime shows, showing that the people are there to loved each other in different ethnic culture. Canadian multiculturalism has been good in T.V shows where the characters show a discourages of hatred, discrimination and violence, but shown a little bit violence in crime shows.
In the passage Expert from Nature, Ralph Waldo Emerson says ”In the woods, we return to reason and faith. There I feel that nothing can befall me In life,-no disgrace, no calamity,”(line 13). This Relates to McCandless because when he was in Alaska, he felt as if he was safe and that nothing was ever going to happen to him. Mccandless was very happy with the life he chose by going into the wild. In conclusion, McCandless was just like every other youth who did not like to obey by the rules and wanted to explore taking a risky journey which would forever be a learning experience for him.
In terms of immigration, Canada knew what it wanted, Europeans and Americans who were Christian were quite readily accepted, especially if they knew English, and others who were still European were at least still “tolerated”. It was thought that these people would easily assimilate into Canadian society. Even in terms of religion, Canada was a very anti-semitism nation. When the St. Louis sailed from Germany with Jewish refugees on board in 1939, Canada refused to let them in. They were then forced to return to Europe.
The color of a person 's skin does not affect anyone according to many citizens in an Ohio town. In Longtown, Ohio, people are growing up with people of different races and were taught that a person 's color or appearance did not matter. Longtown has a history and has been recognized for giving job opportunities to not only white, but to black people too. No matter what a persons race is, they should be respected anywhere and everywhere. Longtown, Ohio is a great example of this.
My privilege was obviously revealed in that I flew to the Rez, flew to Michigan for a family fishing vacation, and flew back; I owned a full suitcase of clothes, my mom bought me new shoes just for the summer, I had a mom, I had a dad, my parents aren’t alcoholics, they love me, they don’t abuse me...I could go on forever. But I also had privilege in that I was fully accepted by whatever group I chose to be a part of. I would hope that my friends who were native didn’t just become my friend because they felt obligated to, but I can see how that could easily be the case. As a “service provider,” community members couldn’t really show a dislike for me because they had to appear grateful. As a summer long intern, team members couldn’t reject me because they were under my authority.
There are three types of homelessness: chronic, cynical, and temporary (Lynne, 1999). A variety of factors can contribute to homelessness, such as natural disasters and war; however, the major causes in Canada are family violence, poverty, a lack of cheap housing, and the closure of mental health institutions. In her essay, “Two Views of Homelessness,” Melanie (2003) noted that “homelessness has been increasing at an alarming rate for over 2 decades, leading to the increased visibility of homeless
As far as social economic status I would consider my family being a middle class family. During childhood I was taught my parents that I was to respect every body no matter if they looked different than me. Having grown in such a diversity community I never encountered problems with people form different racial or ethnic background. I believe it is a blessing to have grown up in such a diverse community because you get to see interaction between people from different cultures. Therefore, I think it enables you to approach people from different ethnic groups with an open
and the insignificance of morality. The first reason, listed within this article, is the fall of the family. In the article, it states that ‘Half of all American marriages end in divorce’ (2 in 5 marriages in Canada) and ‘Only one marriage in eight is a good one.’ These quotes can be connected to the idea that stressful home lives can lead to a higher chance of testing the waters- use of drugs, pre-marital sex, and false friendships- in order to find happiness and security that can’t be found at home with your unhappy parents. The next reason mentioned is the greed for things and this greed, quoted ‘Greed destroys the soul.’ This idea is
The Depression in Canada put many Canadians in a tight spot, and as a result new political parties emerged to help Canadians. One of the new political parties that emerged was The Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF.) The CCF was formed in 1932 and was the first party of its kind in Canada. The Regina Manifesto (CCF 'S platform) opposed free-market economics and supported public ownership of key industries. The CCF also promoted social programs to aid the elderly, the homeless, the sick, and the unemployed.
The teacher’s strike occurred in 1997 had marked a new era for Canadian education. With over 2 million students out of school, teachers marched hoping for their voices to be heard. Parents were struggling to figure out what to do with their kids who weren’t going to school. Chaos had erupted. At the time, this was the largest strike in history.
In this project I will bring forward the cultural variations observed between the Syrians and the Canadians. Names: most parents in Canada pick names as they wish for their children and it doesn’t have to follow any particular pattern. Sometimes the names do not indicate any family relationship at all. However in Syria the parents choose a first name for the child followed by the father’s name and then the family name at the end. This is because of the value placed on family reputation in
The Bureau of Indian Affairs removed tens of thousands of American Indian children from their homes in the late 19th and early 20th centuries to assimilate the youth into the dominant Euro-American culture. Although the schools provided education and vocational training, their primary intention was to deprive Indian children of their tribal culture, language, and appearance. There was a significant amount of abuse in the boarding schools with administrators, teachers, and staff often treating students harshly, including physical and sexual abuse and neglect. Moreover, children suffered serious illnesses and disease. Due to these harsh conditions many Indian youth returned home with mental and physical health problems that transcended for
The federal government has done so, very much to help our beautiful country of Canada. They have given us rights and freedoms, safety and security and most of all a great country to live in. But I am not here to tell you how supposedly great the government is; I am here to inform you on how the government’s actions have affected us as Canadian citizens. Canada’s government was founded in 1867 under the Constitution Act. From then until now, has the government improved our land, or slowly destroyed it?
