There was a need for the rebellion when the Métis have had enough of being taken advantage of. At the time, land speculators and surveyors laid out square townships and disregarded the strip lots the settlers were used to having. When Rupert's Land was purchased without any consultations with the settlers in the area. The Métis called for Riel, who was the leader of the Métis in the prairies at the time. Riel created a provisional government in the area and tried to negotiate with the Canadian government as much as possible.
I examined A Savage Christmas: Hong Kong 1941, the first in a three part series called The Valour and the Horror produced by CBC and the National Film Board of Canada which become very popular due to the controversy that surrounded it. The document uses original film and dramatization to depict what happened to Canadian troops at Hong Kong in December 1941 and the years following in a Japanese prisoners of war camp. Similar to any historical source the film does have a bias towards the Canadians and is quite clear since they utilized personal narratives as the foundation of retelling the events that occurred. Although the article makes assumptions and ignores important context, the documentary is still a valid source when used with caution as it does contain factual There are a couple messages in the documentary that they are clearly trying to convince their audience of. The first is the Canadian government sent in untrained troops to fight in Hong Kong, knowing they had no chance win.
Canada is well known for its peacekeeping efforts and contributions through peacekeeping. Yet, few of the population knows of Canada’s transition to peacemaking, and how Canada aims to return to keeping peace instead creating it. Peacekeeping first transitioned to peacemaking after the Cold War. The change caused public opinion to drop, resulting in Canada declining missions, and contributing less to the UN’s peacekeeping efforts. The Canadian government became unhappy with what Canada's Peacekeeping had become, and decided to take on and complete missions in a manner unlike the way that they were completed for years prior, but in a way alike peacekeeping once was.
To his hypocritical actions in the nuclear weapons debate. While revered by the masses, Pearson 's political actions did not reflect his peacekeeping past. While also causing strife between Canada/U.S relations. Pearson’s first and biggest blunder was allowing the sale of dangerous chemicals to the U.S and allowing the testing of chemical weapons
He states that the Canada’s current economy unfairly treats the middle and working classes, as they work more than before and yet make less . Since Harper is the Prime Minister it is then his fault. Thus, Trudeau has us feel anger towards Harper, as the failed economy is due to Harper. How effective was this appeal.
The Upper Canada Rebellion was, along with the Patriotes Rebellion in Lower Canada, a rebellion against the colonial government in 1837 and 1838. Collectively they are also known as the Rebellion of 1837, while the Patriotes Rebellion is also called the Lower Canada Rebellion. The government of Upper Canada was run by wealthy landowners known as the Family Compact. The British had set up the colonial government hoping to inspire the former American colonies to abandon their democratic form of government, but instead American democracy spread to Canada as well, leaving many dissatisfied with the Family Compact.
Since Owen has a certain knowledge of the future, many of his actions foreshadow his inevitable death. Therefore, a major theme all throughout the novel which adds immensely to one’s understanding of the story is the idea of foreshadowing. Owen and John practice “the shot” constantly throughout the novel. Yet the importance of the shot isn’t obvious until Owen’s sacrifice.
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”.
Although their numbers were small, they got negative attention from inordinate Canadians. This was prompted by cultural, racial, prejudice and labor fears of economic competition (Johnston,Komagata Maru). There were already Anti-Asian lobbies in Canada who opposed Chinese and Japanese immigrants and they started to dislike on the Punjabi and South Asians. As a result, Canada placed a law on immigrants from India in 1908 with regulations which had to be followed when coming to Canada. 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).
Although he maintained and built up this new identity the person that he was remained inside of him by controlling who the new identity. The new identity was purely driven by the opposite of the original one, and in order to maintain that identity Okonkwo kept on noticing the Unoka’s characteristics. Once Okonkwo was banished to Mbanta he lost everything that he had worked hard to earn all his titles and his land. “His life had been ruled by a great passion”, the drive from being unlike Unoka set Okonkwo’s goal “to become one of the lords of the clan” but because of him being expelled he couldn’t “[achieve] it” (131). Okonkwo’s fear of being like his father came crashing down as he left Umuofia and lost all the titles he had worked for.
The Canadian government also inappropriately dealt with Aboriginal social justice issues, as seen through the land claims like the Oka Crisis and the Ipperwash. The Oka Crisis was a 78-day standoff, beginning on July 11th, 1990 between Mohawk protesters, police, and army. The crisis began when the proposed expansion of an 18 hole golf course and development of 60 luxury condominiums on disputed land included a Mohawk burial ground. The Mohawks were infuriated, as the Euro-Canadians proposed the use of land that belonged to them was to be used for a luxury of their own, leading them to erect a barricade to Oka. The Police wouldn’t tolerate the actions of the Mohawks, and intervened 3 months later, attempting to cease the barricade.
Yet, I’m hesitant with our yearning for Canada. We already have a huge territory towards the West of the United States, we could venture there. I know more resources are helpful towards us, but their risking the lives of our countrymen and soldiers. I just cannot abide by that.
Explain the significance of each of these factors. red river resistance disagreements with each other everyone still had old memories of the war and they would say that they won 't wanna live in the same country politicians had different ideas to do with their nation than the other politicians people that live in the area would maybe not agree with what the political would think Louis riel was another person that was standing against the canadian
The opposed the war as inherently evil and immoral. iii. They were often harassed by pro-conscriptionists as “slackers.” D. PM Borden passed two bills to insure a victory in the polls and therefore insure the passing of the conscription bill. 1.
The Libyan government had been restricted from building up its army, just in case they rise back in power somehow and have a dictator running the nation once again (Aljazeera, UN Security Council keeps Libya arms embargo in place. Also, the no-fly zone had been imposed by a Canadian commander as it had been misused and taken advantage of by the Libyan government as Muammar Gaddafi 's military had conducted airstrikes against Libyan rebels in the Libyan Civil War (United Nations, Security Council Approves ‘No-Fly Zone’ over Libya, Authorizing ‘All Necessary Measures’ to Protect Civilians). This helped in restoring a secure and stable democratic government in Libya, without the threats of dictatorship or violence on the Libyan citizens (Government of Canada, Canada-Libya Relations). "It 's a much bigger role than we played in Kosovo," said Canadian air force
