Some say that Canada is safe and free. Although it may be true today, Canada was not always the nice and peaceful place it is now. Canada’s history demonstrates that the country grew and got stronger. Unfortunately, history also shows that Canada gets violent with other countries and even itself. Canada’s identity in relation to war and peace worsened since 1914. This can be shown by the victory in the Battle of Ortona and the kidnapping that caused the October Crisis. It can also be proven by the injustice during the Oka Crisis.
During the late nineteenth century, people were continuously expanding westward. White pioneers were continuously expanding and since the Native Americans were in the way, they had to be moved. Not only was there an economic aspect for moving the Native Americans, there was also a racial aspect. Native Americans were forced to give up their culture for the one of whites. This was all justified because whites wanted to expand westward to create more railroads, create farms, and mine for precious minerals.
There are many landform regions in Canada, all with their own features, which impact the economy. Tectonic Forces, uniqueness and glaciation have combined to shape the canadian shield, making it different from other canadian landform regions, directly affecting economic activity in the region.
In both Bone’s The Regional Geography of Canada, and Warkentin’s A Regional Geography of Canada: Life, Land, Space the methods used to look at the province of British Columbia are different. Both authors take different standing on their views of regional geography as a whole, as well as the overall view of BC as a province. Both chapters identify the attributes of British Columbia, explain their opinions as to what they feel make up the identity of BC, and what makes it a homeland. Bone and Warkentin take different approaches to the explanation of the province and have different strengths and weaknesses in their approaches.
Today, Canada is seen as a multicultural and peaceful nation that has evolved over the course of history. This great nation would never have been possible without the impact that former Prime Minister, Lester B. Pearson left on this country. His achievements and insights profoundly affected and shaped Canada’s nation. First, peacekeeping is an important part of Canada’s heritage and a reflection of its fundamental beliefs that Pearson implemented after dealing with world changing situations and winning a Nobel Prize. Also, his contributions as a liberal leader as well as the flaws and controversy with Diefenbaker did in fact define this country. Lastly, Pearson created the Canadian identity by unveiling the new flag, bringing equality with
Canadian individual identity is questioned often because it is so diverse and means something different to each person in Canada. Although there is not a set identity there are many values and beliefs that are owned by all Canadians. To find out what Canadians identity is, one has to take into account what has affected it. The United States is the biggest influence on Canadian identity. The U.S. culture is very similar to Canadians as we are exposed to it all the time in media sources. 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.
In this day and age, today’s countries and their cultures are immensely different and unique in comparison to each other. China and Canada are no exceptions. The Chinese, known for their famous silk production and their Great Wall of China, hold an impressive history ranging over 5000 years. Canada on the other hand, has only been in the game for 150 years. The British colonization in 1867 had a major impact on the First Nations and has left a serious mark on their community. From cultures to everyday life to the government, these nations hold very unique traits that separate them apart.
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. If that didn’t happen, some of the Maritime “provinces” would still be poor and they would migrate into the mainland of Canada, leaving the land open for people to take over. Canada wouldn’t be what it is now and it would be under control of the US.
Geography is the number one factor in shaping a region! The resources you have is all because of the geography and with that can make or break a region. Geography gives us industries, and industries make money, with less valuable resources or very little quantity of it can make your economy shrink while lots of valuable resources can lead your economy to great things. The geography is the single most important thing about a region.
In 1945 World War two had come to an end. Canada, a great contributor to the war, had many challenges to face and overcome post war. A major part of these challenges were environmental challenges, which Canada primarily encountered from 1945 - 1982. The main environmental challenges include: pollution of the great lakes, mining, and deforestation.
The significance of this relatively small battle was that the British have established a strong presence in New France, now known as Quebec. They defeated France in the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, and took control of New France. This led to the power of the British in North America. The defeat of New France made the British gain confidence in it 's colonies such as Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and New York. This encouraged Great Britain for greater independence, leading to the control of what now is the country of Canada (and in other cases the United States of America). The British victory and the French defeat at Quebec in 1759 had a significant effect, effecting the size, culture, and individuality of Canada. Such effects being the increase
The War of 1812 was extremely important to Canada. It was Canada’s first war, prevented America from controlling Canada, as well as, strengthened the connection between the British colonies. The countries that were involved in the war were mainly the U.S.A and the British colonies in America (Canada), but Britain and France were also included. Britain capturing U.S. sailors and disturbing trade between the U.S. and France, Manifest Destiny, and the Quebec Act of 1774 all helped cause the War of 1812. The battle of Detroit was one of the important battles in the war in which the British forces were the first to attack. The American forces outnumbered the British, but Brock and Tecumseh used fear of Natives and deception to win. The Americans
Neil Armstrong, an American Astronaut, and first person to land on the moon, once said these notorious words, “This is one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” These words were said as he landed on the moon, and forever changed history. This was a milestone and a turning point in space exploration for both the United States of America, and for Canada as well. Another turning point in Canadian history was the battle of Vimy Ridge. The Battle of Vimy Ridge truly was a turning point in Canadian history for several reasons; Prior to Canada’s attempt, both the French and British attempted to capture Vimy, unfortunately
Over the early years of 1900 I believe that Canada is a divided and self-centered country because of the four problems Laurier faced during that time period.
In many countries, conflict between different groups of people is inevitable. In Canada, the divide between English-speaking and French-speaking regions has been a prominent political and cultural topic since the birth of the nation. The most well known of these conflicts goes to Quebec. The province has sprouted several movements and parties supporting the autonomy and independence of Quebec. One of those parties is the Bloc Quebecois.
