In 2002, Canada followed Homeland Security of United States and came up with an immigration plan. The bill was called “Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.” The focus of the bill was to stop people entering Canada and seeking asylum who will endanger the safety of the Canadians. The bill introduced strict law for people who will try to put the life of Canadians at risk. The law allowed immigration to remove people from the country who may pose a threat to the country.
As mentioned prior, the goal of ISIS and other terrorist groups is to impose their beliefs on everyone else, and they do so through violent extremist activities. If we prevent refugees from entering Canada, we are forcing them to endure the torturous living conditions that are occurring and ultimately risk their lives. This is allowing the extremist groups to succeed in their goal of imposing their beliefs on everyone whose faith does not lie directly parallel with their own. In my opinion, it is our responsibility to assist refugees in finding contentment in Canada.
However there have already been similar reports done on the subject of residential schools such as the 1907 report done by, according to King, “Dr. Peter Bryce, the chief medical officer for Indian affairs in Canada…he called the health conditions at residential schools ‘a national crime’” (2015). The commission issued 94 recommendations to the parliament but, the prime minister answered with a thank you and an underwhelming response stating a long time has been spent on the report and there were many recommendations (King, 2015). Throughout the history of Canada the government has put aside the Aboriginal voices, contributing to the silencing and oppression of the Aboriginal population. The more Canada neglects to listen to Aboriginal voices, the more it contributes to the continuation of colonialism in Canada. Although the Aboriginal people of Canada had to go through, “One hundred and twenty years of neglect and malnutrition.
The Aboriginals were well satisfied by this move (pg: 50) - Prime Minister Stephan Harper said to the House of Commons that the schools were a “sad chapter” in Canadian history (pg: 50) - Stephan Harper also said “The government now recognizes that the consequences of the Indian residential schools policy were profoundly negative and that this policy has had a lasting and damaging impact on Aboriginal culture, heritage, and language.” (pg: 50) - The Quebec Native Woman questioned the apology’s value and wanted the government to correct the issues Aboriginals continue to face (pg: 50) The Royal Commission on Aboriginal Voices - The Prime Minister set up a royal commission in 1991 for the Aboriginals.
Maybe not every person 's breaking point results in death, but that is the most apparent breaking point that an author could display. The idea of protection shows that people cannot always be prevented from falling down the paths towards this end point, but if the right attempts are made, it can help drastically. The nod to Jesus Christ allows comparison to them being lead to their deaths, showing it as not one separate event but a pathway. All in all, the similar events leading up to their deaths show the breaking point as it happens, further highlighting that had they been protected from these forces and not from other things, the breaking point would not have been reached, or at least not as soon.
These identities existed long before Canada officially became a country, by political standards, 150 years ago. While First Nations are legally considered Canadians, the opinion on their national identity understandably differs between Aboriginals due to the unfair treatment of Aboriginals by the Canadian government. The First Nations’ collective identity has been deeply affected by the long history of violence and assimilation committed against them through genocide, unfair treaties, forcing them onto reservations, and residential schools. Nowadays, most post-secondary institutions offer courses on Aboriginal Studies to spread knowledge about Aboriginal culture as an integral component of Canada. Aboriginals can be considered a nation within Canada, similar to Francophones.
Pro-Euthanasia arguments have stemmed from the following views: People have an explicit right to die by implication of other human rights, being construed as a private matter and there is no harm to others hence should have no interference from the state and other people. Human beings have the right to die when and how they want to: an excerpt from the Independent, March 2002 states that “in cases where there are no dependents who might exert pressure one way or the other, the right of the individual to choose should be paramount. So long as the patient is lucid and his or her intent is clear beyond doubt, there need be no further questions (7). Without creating (or acknowledging) a specific right to die, it is possible to argue that other human rights ought to be taken to include this right.
Libertarianism would suggest that, since you are unable to know for certain what the patient’s wishes are regarding the sharing of information, you should air on the side of caution and completely avoid sharing anything with their family. By doing this, you aren’t infringing on the patient’s right to liberty. If the patient felt that their past medical history was of importance and worth sharing, it is safe to assume that they would have done so. Based on this assumption, it is ethical to withhold any and all medical history that does not relate to their current medical
The case of Carter vs. Canada is one of triumph for Canadians to question their civil liberties and constitutional privileges to an extent that had not been experienced in the courts history. The decision to abandon the previous law restricting the practice of doctor assisted suicide was justified by the court in the context of those with severe illness as well as a mental disability, in which prohibits their overall wellness. In regards to Life, liberty and security, it comes to a progressive conclusion that both the Supreme Court of Canada and Tina Carter both unilaterally agree that Canadians who are suffering unbearably at the end of life should have the right to choose a dignified and peaceful death. To explicitly regard the constitutional legitimacy of physician-assisted suicide within the charter of rights general limitations, the law currently contradicts the charter.
Mercy killing is legal and even though some people don't like that it is a legal practice it is not there section in the end, it’s the person to wants it decision. Mercy killing can be good. In Of Mice and Men, George did what was best for everyone, Lennie killed someone and was capable of doing it again because he did not fully understand what he did. In real life if a person wants to end their life because they are in pain, mental or physical, they could do it thereself. So why not let them do it peacefully and painlessly by assisted suicide?
