This belief put Trudeau at odds with both the vast majority of the organized labour groups and the NDP; both of whom wanted to limit individual rights to own property and, potentially, nationalize areas that the respective parties believed were too important to Canada’s economic, social, and political health to leave in private hands. While Trudeau was firmly against any notion of nationalizing private property, he was politically astute enough to not mention this during the Liberal minority period, as it would have likely give the NDP the reason they needed to bring down Trudeau’s government. Instead, Trudeau concentrated on the most important and longest-lasting, domestic policy during his entire period in office: multiculturalism as an
However, many Quebecers saw it as a betrayal, and this sparked new separatist movements that were previously non-existent. Thus, the Constitution that Canada fought so hard to patriate for had a variety of drastically important
Consumerism is needed to balance the economy. In conclusion, the idea of "Buy Nothing Day" is potentially harmful to people, businesses, and the economy. "Buy Nothing Day" is faulty because consumerism is a healthy part of the economy and should be embraces. The invention of " Buy Nothing Day" in Canada is not a suitable
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. There were many people who opposed confederation, but there were many more who believed that confederation would bring in lots of opportunity in trading and would help their defense against the U.S. a lot. The people who opposed confederation, which was mainly in the small provinces on Canada’s east,
As a result, colonists printed and used their own currency instead of Britain’s. However, as a response, the Parliament passed the currency act, which forbade colonists from the production and usage of their own currency. Expectedly, colonists were outraged and “many Americans interpreted the British government's interference as an infringement of their right to self-government.” Although colonists were not plausible in their belief that their rights had been violated, but nonetheless Britain has cut off yet another way for the colonists to relieve their economic burden and created more hardships and struggles for the colonists. The Currency Act proved to be hindrance, mainly because colonial demand for currency was high due to usage of currency in order to conduct trade.
They extended the providence of Quebec to span west of the Mississippi, north towards the Hudson Bay and all the way up to the islands at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River, preventing colonial expansion. The Quebec Act also denied the colonies the right to an elected legislative assembly. The British did not realize that the Quebec Act would impact the Middle and Southern colonies too. The British wanted to make New England listen to them and stop their shenanigans and scare the other colonies into listening to parliament but, that did not work. The colonies united after the Intolerable Acts to form the Committee of Correspondence.
W.L. Mackenzie King’s decision to conscript soldiers during WWII is necessary and justified. The poster 's message is to simply convince Canadian citizens to agree that conscription is necessary for the Allies to win the war. The propaganda poster is targeted towards Canadian citizens but mainly young males and French Canadians living in Quebec. It is important to target French Canadians to agree with conscription because majority of French Canadians voted “no” and are against conscripting soldiers for the reason that they feel excluded and not connected to the war. Whereas, English Canadians feel nationalism causing them to agree with conscription and vote “yes”.
The government introduced the “Indian Act” in 1867. This allowed the Aboriginals to have reserved land for them, but it also took away their right to vote or be on jury duty (Indigenous
French people feel that their needs and language rights are superior to those of other areas in Canada. The nationalism in French Canada is an unnecessary and harmful form of patriotism as is effects the government and relationship between Quebec and the rest of Canada. The nationalistic views the Quebec people support show their desire for Quebecois people to unite and prosper as an independent nation separate from the rest of Canada, if this was to happen Canada’s economy, businesses and society would be affected for
The idea of relying on individual states to offer a certain amount of taxes, without consequence to those who did not, was ludicrous. The Government was left unable to pay its foreign debtors which caused concern with those worried
In the articles “Romanticism and realism in Canada’s foreign policy” by Allan Gotlieb, and “Canada’s global promise” by Jennifer Welsh, both authors argue the need for Canada to re-evaluate their current foreign policy however, differ in the way of how Canada should strive for international growth. Firstly, both authors contend that due to Canada’s lack of involvement of being the “peacekeeper” that they use to be, Canada’s reputation of being the global player has taken a serious hit. In Welsh’s article she mentions many Canadians want to be more active on the world stage, and want to spend more money on over seas development, and such UN projects, however the problem “is that Canadians are rarely asked to make difficult trade-offs in spending”. As a result, the Canadian government has to make cuts in spending on such military resources, and programs, in
In 1965 Lester Pearson presented Canada 's new flag, in light of the fact that the Red Ensign was excessively British, making it impossible to be the image of advanced Canada. Numerous residents opposed for having another banner both for reasons of tradition and they were persuaded that Pearson was pressured into it and didn 't really need another banner. English Canadians needed to keep the Red Ensign yet on February 15, 1965, when Canada 's new banner was raised on Parliament Hill surprisingly, all that they were loaded with, was pride and affection. Pearson and the French Canadian needed another banner yet Diefenbaker and the Conservatives needed to keep the Red Ensign to demonstrate a tiny bit of British representation. So the Liberals
The conclusion of production left many of Canadians to fend for themselves, while the United States thrived with technology and innovation. In my opinion, it would be eye-opening for the Canadians to see their masterpeice not being able to soar in Canada, as it would somewhere else. It is eye-opening for Canada 's political and economic state to see them coming so far as a country, in an innovation that could have greatly surpassed anything in its time, not be possible. This was a realization that it is difficult for a "country the size of Canada to compete in the business of building costly weapons of war." And even to this day, it is hard for Canadians not to blame the United States for the destruction of the Arrow.
I personally do not support the Vietnam War, and I think we shouldn’t have gotten involved in Vietnam’s civil war; even if the U.S.S.R was supporting them. I also believe i couldn’t handle the stress of being in battle, if I did accept the draft. Which leads me to my next question, of what would I carry? Among the things I would carry, apart from the
