Capital punishment, or the death penalty is the execution of an individuals life as a punishment for criminal conviction is currently criminalized in Canada, although should be decriminalized. The act of capital punishment officially became illegal in 1962 when Robert Turpin and Arthur Lucas were the last individuals to be executed in Canada.(Victims of Violence,2016) Since 1962 capital punishment has been a controversial topic with arguments about morals, justice and human rights. capital punishment serves as a deterrent for criminals, provides retribution and makes society safe. Punishment is necessary for extreme criminal cases including first degree murder and serious sexual offences such as rape. The deterrent effect ensures that executions
Terrorism has grown to become an important term during the past 40 years and this has been linked to certain groups using terrorism strategies to create chaos and mayhem among governments and the public. But terrorism has grown to develop different meanings among different people and even within government departments (Meisels). The severity and strategies of terrorisms have also changed in recent times with certain groups causing terror in public while others fighting certain groups and individuals and claiming it to be the fight for freedom.
Around the world, Canada is known for three things: cold weather, maple syrup, and multiculturalism. In its truest sense, does multiculturalism mean equality for all races and ethnicities? The absence of prejudice and discrimination in Canada may be a misconception shared by many Canadians and non- Canadians. Despite Canada’s huge multicultural community, hate and intolerance still exist within Canadian society today as seen through the influx of islamophobia and the ignorance of the government towards issues that affect Aboriginal communities.
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
The most recent Canadian legislative response to the threat of terrorism is Bill C-51. Bill C-51 is a very controversial piece of legislation because it infringes on some basic rights and freedoms that us as Canadian citizens deserve such as allocating more power to police services and security institutions, raises privacy concerns, since the act would allow federal institutions to share private information with the RCMP.
While Canadians versed peace and prosperity, they did not always have a sense of security. Throughout history Canada has always been known as the peacekeeping country but in reality our history is caused by the hardships of war and suffering. Canada took great efforts to help the people through these struggles, but these struggles did help define not only Canada but Canadians them self. We often identify Canada as a peacekeeping country but we are a nation built up by war and suffering.
After the 9/11 attack many Americans have come to realize what terrorism really is, but for the kids that 9/11 was history to here you go. Terrorism today is the use of violence usually against other countries aimed towards politics. Targeting terrorist leaders might not make much difference, but it is cheap, it is low risk for the United States (Fisher,par.18). According to Max Fisher’s article going after terrorist leaders isn’t always the best, well the U.S. did that for the 9/11 attack, we ended up killing Osama Bin Laden the man who planned 9/11 out. Terrorist groups like the Al Qaeda, ISIS, and the Jihadist are a threat to mankind.
There has been much controversy over capital punishment over the years. Few people in the United States see capital punishment as being wrong. It is said that Canada is way too easy on their criminals because they do not punish the convicts by the death penalty. Canada says that the United States is way to strict on their criminals because they execute their convicts by the death penalty. Should murderers be murdered for their crimes or should they spend the rest of their lives perishing in prison, that question may soon some day be correctly answered but for now it is strictly your own belief, possibly this essay may change your mind if you are for the death penalty. Most Canadians believe that Canada should never reinstate the death penalty.
The term terrorism is inextricably intertwined with the notion of foreign actors unleashing widespread disaster on American soil. This notion is not unfounded and carries a very real and very dangerous threat to the US. While the US must of course be constantly vigilant with regard to the threat of an attack emanating from a foreign land, the US must also consider an equally dangerous threat that lurks in our own backyard: the domestic terrorist. Make no mistake, the use of the word domestic should by no means diminish, and should in no way normalize the malevolency these groups perpetuate. One is tempted to limit one’s thinking regarding domestic terrorism to the latest news story and how that may affect the US in the here and now. However,

As a rule, poverty goes hand in hand with terrorism. In particular, the ringleaders usually operate out of destitute countries and find the bulk of their recruits from the barren locales. An exemplar lies in the legions of terrorists running amok in the Middle East, North Africa, and other impoverished regions of the world. Despite the linkage, however, poverty does not by itself lead to terrorism. To bring up a counterpoint, many a poor country round the globe has been spared the curse of terrorism. This fact alone shows that penury could not be the sole cause of terrorism.
Since the beginning of time, humans have been constantly struggling to survive and thrive. In Alif: the Unseen, by G Willow Wilson, and Through Black Spruce by Joseph Boyden, there exist prominent examples of the fundamental basis of human temperament. The two novels presented effectively parallel one another through the display of human nature in terms of the symbolism of the Alf Yeom with Xavier’s Rifle, the supportive attitude of Dina and Annie, and the advocate of change of Will and Alif, all of which serve as the foundation of human nature itself.
