The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is an effective tool to ensure and maintain a just society as it protects the innocence of people, protects and ensures past laws and states fundamental freedoms, all of which work to create a thriving society. Before the Charter, many people may argue that Canada was a free and democratic country. Canadians had the freedom of expression, equality and the principles of fundamental justice. What changed with the creation of the Charter was that rights and freedoms were given constitutional status, and judges were given the power to strike down laws that infringed on them. In 1982, most Canadians agreed that the introduction of the Charter was going to monumental.
This moment that guarantees freedom can truly tell “I am a Canadian.”. Finally, the same opportunities should always be given. Even if they were not born in Canada; however, their legitimate rights are legally guaranteed; therefore, there should not be excluded and they should be able to choose whatever they
The aim of this policy in Canada consisted in breaking down discriminatory attitudes of dominant ethnic group toward non-dominant groups. It was supposed to be done by supporting ethnocultural communities in their wish to maintain their heritage cultures and, at the same time, by ensuring full participation in the larger society. The basic idea was that if people from non-dominant ethnic groups coming to, or living in, Canada got an opportunity to maintain links with their culture and simultaneously got an opportunity to participate in a larger society, both dominant and non-dominant groups would be at advantage. In other words, the fundamental goal of the policy implied enhancing mutual acceptance among all ethnocultural groups (Berry,
Aucoin would agree with this plan because Justin is not over using his authority and is spreading the power into his parliament to make a real change in Canada while still staying within the rules and is keeping his word to Canadians. Mr. Trudeau plans or improving partnerships with provincial, territorially, and municipal governments are crucial in brining real change to Canada and the biggest relationship to fix is with Indigenous People in regards to rights, respect, co operations, and most importantly partnership. Also Justin Trudeau has committed bringing new leadership to Canada and one way he plans on doing this is by allowing more openness and transparency in government to shine the light on the government to show the people that they are there to serve the people and not themselves. Aucoin would agree with these set commitments because there is a clear objective of fixing relationships with no loopholes and he is serving for the population and not the
As mentioned prior, the goal of ISIS and other terrorist groups is to impose their beliefs on everyone else, and they do so through violent extremist activities. If we prevent refugees from entering Canada, we are forcing them to endure the torturous living conditions that are occurring and ultimately risk their lives. This is allowing the extremist groups to succeed in their goal of imposing their beliefs on everyone whose faith does not lie directly parallel with their own. In my opinion, it is our responsibility to assist refugees in finding contentment in Canada. Tim Mulcair states, “The international community has failed.
¬¬¬Canada is known worldwide, as a multi-cultured and accepting society¬¬¬. Canada is recognized as understanding of all genders, races, ages, sex orientations, and all religions. Canada shows this acceptance in the collective morals of society, but also in the legal system. However not every country is like Canada. Canada is a democracy so the belief is in being equal and fair, thus Canada put these beliefs into effect by creating the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms using the Equality Rights section.
In Canada, there are multicultural people and international companies must keep in minds the public needs and taste while starting any business. Pitching items starting with one nation then onto the next is at times troublesome when the way of life of the two nations contrast fundamentally. They may not harm people’s religious beliefs. The companies must take care of customers shopping habits, social beliefs and language. (textbook, chapter 5)5.
In definition, multiculturalism means the practice of giving importance to all cultures in one civilization. It has been actualized in some countries over decades such as Canada and some European countries. However, Angela Merkel, the prime minister of Germany, announced that the German multiculturalism has failed. Thus, the changes are bound to be controversial. In some people’s assessments, multiculturalism in Canada is unsuccessful.
First, it allows for the protection of basic human rights, such as right to conscientious objection. As noted earlier, voluntary military service derives from the use of attractive salaries and bonuses, and hence there is no stern restriction regarding one’s right to join or leave the army, the navy, marines or even the air force. This explains why this recruitment practice is mainly used in countries like the United States ' Armed Forces that seek to promote the basic tenets of human rights protection. Therefore, voluntary service helps preserve a country’s reputation as the one that respects and protects human rights (Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada
The colonists felt that the proclamation was a limit to their power and authority in the colonies. In protest, the colonists took to the westward trails, clogging pathways and moving out west. More significant than the immediate effects of the Proclamation of 1763 was what the Proclamation signified. It was the initial sign that England was starting to take an interest in the American colonies again, marking the end of salutary neglect. With this legislation, several decades of virtual independence in the colonies was over and the British began to assert their authority over their colonies.
Although tragic, Canada 's war effort won a separate signature on the Peace Treaty. This gave Canada the constantly wanted national status, it gave to Canadians nationhood. Although proud of their autonomy, Canada 's economic situation was terrible. Before the war, Canada 's debt was already rising, because of the loss in wheat crops and the loss of jobs due to the railway. After the war ended, Canada 's economy did not get better.
The creation of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms can be considered Trudeau’s most highly acknowledged accomplishment in his years as prime minister, giving Canada its current reputation of freedom and diversity. Trudeau wanted this charter to protect individual rights by preventing laws that unfairly discriminate or that belittle the essential human rights. It states that every Canadian receives the rights and freedoms which no government can expel regardless of race, gender or religion. The Charter of Rights and Freedoms that Trudeau wanted for the people of Canada was finally passed on April 17, 1982. Trudeau pledged to bring home a new constitution with charter of rights (Sauerwein).
I agree with them on the subject of LGBT rights and same-sex marriage because I believe that all people deserve the federal benefits that come with it. I also agree with their stance on improving conditions for minorities and women. We also need to work harder to preserve our environment. I do not agree with the democrat’s stance on gun control. I believe that guns and other weapons (when used correctly) are what keep our country safe.
Working together for mutual benefits certainly helped Canada during Confederation. In today’s society, we are still using the principles of confederation in our country. We need both majority and minority governments to work together for a common goal as well as working with other countries for common benefits such as our free trade agreement we enjoy with the USA today. So 1867 lead the way for us to live free in Canada and for that, I am eternally
