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.

This resulted in Canadian military leaders shying away from the Avro Arrow.“Aircraft programs were being shut down as militaries shifted resources towards missiles”. Lastly, Canada was forced to place missile bases in the territories. The American Government decided to place their missile silos just beside the great lakes, but because of limited range Canada would not be protected against an attack. Canada was forced to place missile bases in the northern Territories because if they didn’t they could lose big cities if a soviet missile attack occurred. They had to abandon the Avro Arrow to make this come true.

Air Canada Flight 797 was a projected trans-border flight that hovered from Dallas/Fort Worth Global Airport to Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau Global Airport, alongside an intermediate halt at Toronto Pearson Global Airport. On 2 June 1983, the McDonnell Douglas DC-9-32 working the ability industrialized an in-flight fire behind the washroom that range amid the beyond skin and the inner decor panels, filling the plane alongside toxic smoke. The spreading fire additionally blazed across critical mechanical cables that knocked out most of the instrumentation in the cockpit, compelling the plane to redirect to an alternative landing field. Ninety seconds afterward the plane arrived and the doors were opened, the warmth of the fire and new oxygen from the open exit doors crafted flashover conditions, and the plane's inside instantly came to be engulfed in blazes, killing 23 travelers who had yet to evacuate the aircraft.

We have a tradition in Canada of constructing a major infrastructure such as highways and railways under the rule of law where there is a policy on how to access the land and effects of the communities. The First Nation opposed of the pipeline approval at times and faced police rubber bullets and water cannons on the opening day of the special assembly. The Quebec Chief said “the protests in North Dakota send a clear message to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet colleagues who approved the construction of the Trans Mountain pipeline”(Taske). Pipelines are a very uncommon topic for many of our people because of the disasters it bring to us. Some Canadians have a strong feeling about the things that are decided by the local government and that is the rights to express their own opinions.
Mulroney and Schreiber remained in contact over the years and when Mulroney was elected Prime Minister of Canada, Schreiber endorsed an agreement where his company would sell Airbus aircrafts to Canada and would acquire commissions of up to three percent for each aircraft.

The ship was going from Southampton, U.K. to New York City. Titanic was often called “The Unsinkable.” The ship costed $7.5 million (over $400 million today) to build. The Titanic could have had been more prepared for its upcoming maiden voyage, if the builders were prepared for what the possibilities were.

A book called the The Things They Carried by Tim O’ Brien actually chronicles first hand the journey and the embarrassment one must experience to flee the draft. At first Mr. O’ Brien wants to flee to Canada even though he knows that he won’t be able to see his family again or that he won’t be able to come back to the states. However, when he is only twenty yards away from the border, he can’t risk the embarrassment from his hometown and the whole universe, so he goes to the war. During the war, Mr. O’ Brien figures out that the only reason that any of his fellow soldiers are at the war was so their prestige wouldn’t go down. He goes so far as to say, “Men killed, and died, because they were embarrassed not to… They died so as not to die of embarrassment.”(O’ Brien, 21) If someone during the draft hadn’t gone to Vietnam to die for something they didn’t believe in then they would have been looked down upon by society just because our society is so

What the most common story of what had happened on 9/11, was that 4 planes were hijacked; 2 crashed into the Twin Towers, 1 into the Pentagon, and another into a field in Pennsylvania. After the incident, some of the citizens rights were taken away through the Patriot Act. Spying on our own citizens worrying about which ones among us were terrorists and the general feeling of insecurity. We didn’t use to scare so easily, we used to pay attention to our elected officials and public servants and we used to not see each other as the main threat. 3000+ people died on 9/11, yet our civil liberties to this day are still under attack but not from a foreign force, it’s now from ourselves, ignorance, and over reliance and incorrect trust being placed on our government, Which has always been, and moving forward should be of the people, by the people, and for the
It was a wake-up call, not only for us as Americans but for those in many parts of the world (What happened). Before 9/11 we could walk with our loved ones and friends to their gate and watch their planes depart, we could be able to show up minutes before a flight and run tomake, we could carry bottles, and we had no security systems. Now after 9/11 you have to show 1 hour before our flight boards. You needed to have passport to watch planes take off, you cannot have any water bottles, and there is security systems take each person must go thru (9/11
