Before, a majority of Canadians only cared about their own problems and turned a blind eye to the Holocaust, after shifting their attitude Canada helped out by sending troops to Europe in WWII. It created a shift within civil society by making them promote their organizations even more to help establish strong bonds. As stated by Professor Dominique Clément “This ‘rights revolution’ represented an important shift not only in the relationship between citizens and the state but also within civil society.” WWII really promoted change in equality and human rights by helping Canadians realize the significance of their rights and values and then fixing their mistakes to gain
Government Control in Canadian Residential Schools and Fahrenheit 451 Government control is often seen in real world circumstances, as well as in fiction novels. Indian residential schools were government-funded religious schools whose goal was to assimilate Aboriginal children into Euro-Canadian society. (Miller) About 150, 000 Aboriginal children attended these schools that operated from 1831 to 1996, when the last residential school closed down. (Miller) The novel Fahrenheit 451, written by Ray Bradbury in 1953, is a dystopian tale set in a futuristic society where books are banned and firemen start fires instead of putting them out. The society in the story does not accept individuality or intellectual thought and the government has great control over the citizens.
In 1969, the Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and his Liberal government made the contraception legal in Canada. But, they only allowed abortion under the situation that the mother's life is in danger. That was some progress, but that was far too little for the Pro-Choice supporters like abortion activist Dr. Henry Morgentaler who announced he has performed over 5000 abortion surgeries for women from all over the country. After 20 years of legal battles, finally, in 1988, The Supreme Court of Canada abolished Canada's abortion law as unconstitutional. Because it is against the Section 7 of the Charter of Rights and Freedom：A woman's right to life, liberty and security of a person.
Canada actively sought out immigrants from eastern Europe to help populate the west of Canada in 1914. Canada was largely populated of immigrants from other countries and when Canada participated in World War I and World War II many immigrants from the enemy countries were viewed as suspicious and treacherous. This led to the internment of enemy aliens, during this time enemy aliens were treated with very little respect as human beings. The Canadian government had to figure out who the enemy aliens were and how they were going to treat them. The treatment of enemy aliens had many impacts on the 20th and 21st century both negative and positive.
She changed because she had lost her father due to the Taliban taking him away. He was the only male that can take a female outside. Since his gone, Parvana had decided to transform into a male, “All right,” she said. “I’ll do it.” pp 68. She had to change physically within her appearance because Nooria could of done it, but it looked like she didn’t have the appearance for a male body, “No one would believe me to be a boy,” pp 67.
This example proves that to the Indigenous, the discrimination has been taken to a far higher level with murder of loved ones involved, and this counter-argument is inferior to the voices of the broken families. Now, this happens because the Canadian government either doesn’t bother to enforce the security in the Indigenous community, or that they aren’t educating the First Nations in health and well-being, even though the government is making the “citizens” of Canada, their top priority. Throughout the Vicelands Cut-off, many of Indigenous people from the community, where Justin Trudeau was visiting kept on questioning the actions of the Liberal government, which emphasizes the fact that they either did not vote for the party, or the elected government wasn’t fulfilling the needs of the people. In particular, there was an old Aboriginal woman who didn’t know who Justin Trudeau even was, emphasizing that she had absolutely no hope in the democratic system. This
This decision proved controversial as many said it turned the province into a police state. In addition, the October Crisis contributed to the creation of a new act and marked the final use of the WMA. Trudeau ended the WMA on April 30, 1971, and, on July 21, 1988, the
The culture in Western Europe was affected negatively by The Dark Ages. Education was not a priority and the the church worried that people would begin to question their beliefs the more people were educated. So, the rulers took away all education in belief that it would help, but “It was not until the end of the Middle Ages that the rulers began to realize that without education they would just continue to make the same mistakes over and over again and would never reach peace for their society” (Newman, Culture). People suffered from lack of education all throughout the Middle Ages, until it was finally brought back towards the end of this time period. Culture and society were controlled greatly by the church.
Even when women were successfully pursuing these careers, they were removed from work and intensely discriminated against. This act gave women the only choice of staying home and taking care of the kids and the household. This post WWII effect caused a harsh barrier between genders and what their roles in society “should” be. Men played the more dominant roles in society. In the family aspect, they were known as the suppliers of the family, expecting to come home from work with a home
“The real reason for not committing suicide is because you always know how well life gets again after the hell is over.” People are unable to realize how their situation can be resolved better than having to kill themselves. Terminally ill patients are notorious for taking their lives before they can realize the mistake they are making. They believe that it is best for their situation, however, there are multiple reasons for why they should reconsider their actions before something terrible happens. Doctor assisted suicides should not be allowed because of the effects it has on the deceased loved ones and how more terminally ill patients are overcoming their disabilities. Two major reasons for why doctor assisted suicides should be stopped
I believe that individuals and companies, that relied heavily on Canadian based publications for their livelihood, fought to preserve said livelihood by lobbying for taxes and regulations on foreign competition. To me, this is evidence of a very small minority manipulating the government to become sympathetic to their struggle, in staunch disregard of popular public opinion, evidenced by consumer purchasing choices. This struggle is not exclusive to Canada or the magazine dispute. Countries involved in free trade love to export their domestically produced good to other countries, thereby stimulating growth in their own economy, but this growth is not realized without cost. The trade off being made is that some domestic products and businesses will fall to competition from imported foreign products and businesses.
Likewise, the film shows that transgenders are questioned for their existence. Some parents in the film indicated that they had hoped that “there would be another way” and that they did not understand why and how their children were gender-nonconforming. One of the parents portrayed a transgender life as “eternal death”. The film showed that even the closest people of these children complied to the concept of deviance and solidified the concept through their hostility towards the concept of transgender and their effort to bring their children back to the norm which in this case is gender conformation. It amazed me to see how strongly some parents felt about “preventing” their children from becoming the deviants.
In other parts of the world like Britain, eugenics was seen to cause public fear of genetics. However, this fear was considered by scientists and ethicists to be as a result of misunderstanding or ignorance. The conservative view is that the eugenics movement of the first four decades of this century was based on misunderstandings of genetics or bad science. The implication of this view is that now we know so much more about genes, and have witnessed the terrible cost of eugenics, we would not make that mistake again. The creation of the Repository for Germinal Choice- which was a sperm bank, in the 1970s renewed positive eugenics with the aim of collecting sperms from Olympic level athletes.
