For this, Currie was promoted to lieutenant-general in charge of the Canadian Corps. At forty-one, he was the youngest officer ever to grasp such a rank. The other Allied nations had already lost thousands of men in a sea of blood and mud at the Battle of Passchendaele. Currie was then called in to do what other Allied generals had not been able to, and although he objected and predicted that too many Canadian men would be lost in battle, he eventually agreed. He applied his usual strategies to the situation and once again relied on his engineers to build roads, drain ditches, and even build a railway, all while being fired upon by the Germans.
World War 1 had devastating impacts on many countries around the world, even those who weren’t directly involved in the war. Russia was one of those countries deeply affected, as the war had lasting impacts on their economy and social structure for decades after the war ended. The Russian Revolution was the result of World War 1. Russia entered the war in August of 1914 under the rule of Nicholas II. Unlike its European allies, Russia was lagging behind in their economy, as they had a majority agricultural industry throughout the 1800s.
The first wave had 20,000 soldiers each carrying 36 kilograms of equipment. 100,000 Canadians caught in the Battle of Vimy Ridge. There were 11,000 fatalities in The Battle of Vimy Ridge. The leader/commander of the U.K. and Canada was Sir Julian Byng. His men liked Byng so much that they called themselves Byng 's Boys.
Britain and France had tried on countless occasions to capture the area, however they were forced back by German artillery. Thus, leaving the capture in the hands of the Canadian troops. The Battle of Vimy Ridge was the first battle that was fought by all four Canadian Corps division and was led by British general Julian Byng and under his command was Canadian general Arthur Currie. This attack on Vimy Ridge was very
A violent bombardment followed by another gas attack, but the Canadians maintained their grounds. The Canadians established a reputation as a formidable fighting force. Congratulatory messages were cabled to the Canadian Prime Minister. "The costs were high, 6,035 Canadians, became casualties and more than 2,000 died." (Ypres 1915) These were heavy losses in four days for Canada 's little force whose men were civilians months before.
However there have already been similar reports done on the subject of residential schools such as the 1907 report done by, according to King, “Dr. Peter Bryce, the chief medical officer for Indian affairs in Canada…he called the health conditions at residential schools ‘a national crime’” (2015). The commission issued 94 recommendations to the parliament but, the prime minister answered with a thank you and an underwhelming response stating a long time has been spent on the report and there were many recommendations (King, 2015). Throughout the history of Canada the government has put aside the Aboriginal voices, contributing to the silencing and oppression of the Aboriginal population. The more Canada neglects to listen to Aboriginal voices, the more it contributes to the continuation of colonialism in Canada.
In 1892 the Canadian Criminal Code was proclaimed for a country that was never thought of to become a nation with more than 35 million individuals and as developed as it is politically, socially, and economically. Our great nation has expanded into an ever changing and transitioning society that as it moves forward crimes are committed across the board by individuals of Canada’s various different races and cultures, where in which sentences are demanded to ensure Canada remains fair and just. The 1892 Criminal Code didn’t account for the developments, expansions, and transitions that Canada has endured over a hundred years, and Canada looks nothing like it did in 1892. Due to the changes, our provinces and territories have all developed substantially;
Ali Kazimi, who wrote a documentary on the Komagata Maru told the Toronto Star, “that Canada for the first 100 years of its existence had what was effectively a ‘white man's’ policy” ( Tharoor, Trudeau's apology). Canada’s law that was placed had 2 requirements a $200 fee and a travel rule, which had to be met if you were to travel to Canada. Knowing that Canada stopped Asians immigrants, trying to get into the country, the activists of Punjab and other parts of Asia, so they focused on trying to get back into Canada by the Komagata Maru. They believed they could change Canada's rule since both India and Canada were under the British empire at the time.
World War I, “The Great War” is often considered the first example of “Total War”, as the home front heavily supported the military, and civilians across the world were affected. From 1914 to 1918, the United Kingdom (a member of the Allied Powers along with the U.S, France etc.) saw a war that profoundly impacted their entire population. The British people played a role of the utmost importance in the war, and there were many shifts in all aspects of life. The impacts of World War I on civilians in the United Kingdom were all-encompassing, being social, economic, and political.
World war 1 was one of the most devastating wars in history. The War Occurred Mostly Europe and started in 1914 and ended in 1918. During the First World War, the amount of casualties was devastating. 17 million people died and 20 million wounded. This war is considered to have been a tragedy for many people in Europe as they have never witnessed a war like this before.
Canadian contribution changed the whole atmosphere since Canada had more than 620,000 men and few thousand nurses just 4 years after the world war 1 started. Hundred days during and under the General Currie was the greatest contribution to all the Allied force. General Currie claimed that his four division has smashed one quarter of the German army in the west. The Canadians had made such a positive impact that were quoted as, “shock troops of the British Empire” by Shane Schreiber. By the 1914 no one could believe what Canada was actually capable of, people started thinking that Canada’s was expanding and succeeding on the western/advance grounds.

The pull factor of Canada was exemption from this service, and with help from Leo Tolstoy, a Russian novelist, and Russian anarchists, the Doukhobors settled in British Columbia. In 1899, more than 7500 Doukhobors migrated to Canada. Peter Verigin and 500 other Doukhobors joined them in 1902. Verigin was the leader of the Doukhobors at the time, but he was arrested in Russia after being appointed to his position. Things seem to have went downhill from here as the Doukhobors lost land, faced discrimination and jail time for their culture, and found their children forced to attend non-Doukhobor schools.
Historical Globalization Almost everything nations do will leave a legacy behind. Something that will be remembered and judged for decades. Canada has left many legacies, and nowhere near all of them have been good ones. Canadians have mistreated first nations for ages now, using treaties and war to steal their land and use their resources. That is the issue that this man is trying to bring up.He designed a hood with the words “Got land?
