An important period of the development of Canada has been embodied by numerous heroes and traitors. There has been much debate of whether the famous Canadian Icon, Louis Riel is thought of as a hero or a traitor. As such, he was the leader of a Metis rebellion against the Canadian government; and founded the Canadian Province Manitoba. He also proceeded to murder a Canadian government representative, and largely contributed to improving the Metis Social Rights. We believe that Louis Riel deserves recognition for being one of Canada 's Greatest heroes.
Wilderness Idea The wilderness is a valuable resource for scientific, educational, scenic, and historical research. Presidents such as Theodore Roosevelt advocated the preservation of the American wilderness for its national history, beauty, and traditions. However, as the American society evolved to live in the city, the suburbs, and other residential areas, the wilderness was becoming a wasteland that numerous companies intended to build houses, factories, and cities. William Stegner, a prolific author, and winner of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award is known for his novels reflecting the love for nature and the West.
Around the 1970s, governments and individuals generated a number of symbols that expressively added to the Canadian identity, and in addition, some public movements added to this sentiment as well. The cause of these public movements and creation of symbols were due to the fact that Canadians were starting to feel as if they were confronted with the challenge of defining a national identity distinct from Britain and the United States. For example, in the world of radio and television, little was exclusively Canadian, thus the government created the Canadian ensign, and in 1971 this body issued requirements for Canadian programming commonly called Can-con requirements. Furthermore, hockey, frequently labelled as Canada's national sport, was beginning to be considered as a symbol of Canadian culture and identity worldwide. Hockey events, such as the winning goal scored by the Canadian national team throughout a competition with the Russian national team in the 1970s, are what make hockey a symbolic importance.
It’s actions like this that really demonstrate how the Sierra Club has done in the past and will possibly do in the future. In the Sierra Club’s history, they have been effective in helping pass federal bills that made the outdoors safer for wildlife (Sierra). Because of this, I can strongly predict the charity will continue to do anything in its power to protect and preserve wildlife and the environment. Each day, the Sierra Club helps protects defenseless plants and animals from laws that would damage their fragile habitat. For example, they’ve helped pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act, as well as peacefully protesting for national parks, such as Yosemite and the Grand Canyon.
Canada is now known to be a diverse, multicultural, bilingual and inclusive nation largely as a result of his work. Pierre Elliott Trudeau also believed in an equal Canada for all, he is primarily the one to introduce rights and freedoms to the citizens of Canada. While some view Pierre Trudeau as impulsive, for enforcing the War Measures Act, Trudeau enacted this for the protection of Canadian citizens against radical extremist and his actions were more rational than impulsive for the situation that had suddenly occurred. Pierre Trudeau was one of Canada’s greatest Prime Minister’s, who’s impact fundamentally changed the course of the nation by introducing multiculturalism, for introducing the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and for paradoxically upholding democracy by strong action during the October Crisis.
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.
The Canadian Pacific Railway was built to help make this happen, but the North-West Rebellion broke out. This rebellion took place in today’s Saskatchewan and Alberta The North-West rebellion was mainly fought by the Metis peoples, directed at the Canadian government as they felt that Canada was not protecting their rights and their land to the extent they agreed through treaty. Big Bear was the head chief of the Metis people, he was striving for a United Cree Nation and to discuss the agreement on treaty six and see if they could adjust it. Big Bear felt that they were not given enough as it was their land originally and they should be able to take what they want. The Metis and Aboriginals were only given about 640 acre of land through treaty six.
The War Hawks wanted to take the Atlantic and use the American Navy to help them out when they declared war on Britain. The United States attempted to invade Canada. The invasion ended in defeat. It was made very clear throughout these documents that there were many people who were against the War Hawks. The War Hawks did a very good job with trying to persuade American authority to declare war on Britain.
Canada has many events that had helped shape our country today. Some events were minor events, while some events had major parts in the creation of Canada. I think Confederation, The Rebellions of 1838 to 1838, and The Quebec Act of 1774, were all very important events in the history of Canada. Confederation was important because if Canada hadn’t joined together to form a strong alliance against enemies, their foes could’ve come in and stolen Rupert’s Land so a lot of what is now Canada would be part of the US. This would make Canada even weaker and the US would take the Maritime “provinces” and then attempt to take over the rest of Canada, and in the event it happened, Canada would no longer exist and much of North America would now be part of the US.
The following quote states, “We had flannelette sheets, like children’s, and army-issue blankets, old ones that still said U.S.” (Atwood, 1985, p. 4) This is a historical allusion by introducing Gilead and its connection to the real world the United States. By choosing, at her time, a powerful country reflects on the author’s thoughts on which country is capable of shifting the power and directing it into a dystopian-like world. It concurs with her background.
We have a tradition in Canada of constructing a major infrastructure such as highways and railways under the rule of law where there is a policy on how to access the land and effects of the communities. The First Nation opposed of the pipeline approval at times and faced police rubber bullets and water cannons on the opening day of the special assembly. The Quebec Chief said “the protests in North Dakota send a clear message to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet colleagues who approved the construction of the Trans Mountain pipeline”(Taske). Pipelines are a very uncommon topic for many of our people because of the disasters it bring to us. Some Canadians have a strong feeling about the things that are decided by the local government and that is the rights to express their own opinions.
The risk of raising tensions between the British and causing another war isn’t worth it. Also, they said that the British were supplying the Natives with weapons. We all know that the Natives are quite ludicrous, they’ll fall to our might once
Sifton’s aggressive immigration campaign was extremely important in Canada’s 20th century development. The driving force of Sifton’s efforts to populate western Canada was the fear that the United States would act upon their eager Interest into moving into the vast unpopulated land. Without Sifton’s immigration advances it is very likely the United States would have invaded Canada taking over the west destroying MacDonald’s vision Canada from sea to sea. Another importance of immigrants populating the west is for them to become laborers to construct the railroad that was to connect Canada coast to coast and these jobs were extremely dangerous jobs which the white
In conclusion, Clarence Decatur Howe helped Canada overcome the Great Depression, through being the Minister of Munitions and Supplies, changed the transportation industry and
