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
Finally, had its historical veto power removed by the other premiers of Canada. As a result of this, Quebec was now not able to change the outcome of federal issues alone. However, many Quebecers saw it as a betrayal, and this sparked new separatist movements that were previously non-existent.

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.

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.

And Britain’s very limited issuing of currency thrwated colonist’s effort to profit.
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 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.

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.
