Immigration in Canada is one of the core values, it has been since almost the founding of Canada. The way that Canada grew in population during the early years, even France had a way of populating Canada. When we established colonies and new cities, they were all people that were from Great Britain and France. The British and French treated the native people as a second class person. The First Nations did not have the same rights and privileges as the newcomers to Canada.
Canada has a very rich history, despite being a younger country than most. This history constitutes many different methods, good or bad, that Canadians have tried in order to develop a significant national identity. For instance, Canada played an important role in both of the World Wars in attempts to establish a distinct national identity on the global stage. After World War Two, Canada joined the United Nations and began performing peacekeeping missions to provide aid to countries, thus creating a new facet to the Canadian national identity. However, Canada has also used unjust methods, such as establishing residential schools as a way to assimilate the First Nations into the government’s idea of what Canadian national identity should be.
Topic: Currently, the United States official policy towards illegal drugs has tremendous societal impacts on not just themselves, but for other countries like Canada. It has been the main approach to illegal drugs in North America for at least the forty years. It has been fueled and modeled by public support and established governments and affected the lives of millions. This policy from one superpower has severely affected other countries who are the predominant suppliers and transporters of drugs such as Mexico, Guatemala and Columbia. This heated topic has been suggested by many to be flawed and useless which has pushed for change within multiple societies to have a different and positive approach towards the illegal drugs trade.
The French and Indian war nearly doubled the national debt of the British so they decided to raise taxes on the American colonists in an attempt to raise money. It was not easy for the British to collect these new taxes as they were met with resistance, so much that they had to send in more soldiers to help the representatives of the British government perform their jobs safely. Being taxed more made the colonists start having revolutionary thoughts towards their British
In general, Prohibition was enforced much more strongly in areas where the population was sympathetic to the legislation mainly rural areas and small towns and much more loosely in urban areas. The prohibition was also very difficult to enforce because the local police and commissionaires were receiving very lucrative bribes for they not to prosecute the bootleggers. Despite very early signs of success, including a decline in arrests for drunkenness and a reported 30 percent drop in alcohol consumption, those who wanted to keep drinking found ever-more inventive ways to do it. The illegal manufacturing and sale of liquor, also known as “bootlegging”, went on throughout the decade, along with the operation of “speakeasies”, nightclubs selling alcohol, the smuggling of alcohol across state lines and the informal production of liquor “moonshine” or “bathtub gin”, in private homes. This practice proved to be very dangerous because the level of alcohol was very high and that it could contain ethanol a dangerous type of alcohol that can be deadly.
The JCPC’s ruling in Board of Commerce, solidified the changing interpretation of Russell v. The Queen. In Board of Commerce, the federal government argued that although wartime had passed with the end of World War One in 1918, they needed to expand their powers and regulate financial markets. As a result, the government passed legislation to control distribution and sale. This legislation greatly impacted Canadian citizens economically and regulated numerous markets. In 1921, the JCPC examined this case with the federal government claiming emergency to avoid price gouging and monopolies.
Back then in “The Plague” they could not do much as of “helping” them out with that disease. We have the cure for everything that is out there, but the government wants you to sell your soul to get it. Let that sink in for a minute okay. The government has SO MUCH MONEY, how come our school or we still in debt are not well up to date? They keep putting money down on things that does not help us out.
Gun control has been a big factor in today’s society, now days it is often to see people getting their lives taken from them due to guns. Having researched one side of the issue, that gun violence had increased over the last year. Having researched the other side of the issue, more gun owners are feeling their rights are being taken little by little. There is no question this is a complicated issue that will require a complicated answer. Due to the black market on guns, anyone can acquire one without a background check.
They also think that they should have to pay for their actions and face the consequences for killing an innocent person or people. Although giving someone a life sentence is a financial burden for the state that the person is being held in, most americans feel it's something they are willing to pay extra for on taken to ensure the safety of their homes and where they live. When holding someone on death row it costs the state over 1 million dollars per person and that money is usually taken out of taxes or government money. Over all death penalty supporters feel like keeping a killer alive with there tax money isn't fair to them and they shouldn't get the satisfaction of living their own life even if its a crappy one cause they took that from somebody
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.
Working together for mutual benefits certainly helped Canada during Confederation. In today’s society, we are still using the principles of confederation in our country. We need both majority and minority governments to work together for a common goal as well as working with other countries for common benefits such as our free trade agreement we enjoy with the USA today. So 1867 lead the way for us to live free in Canada and for that, I am eternally
