I can't speak to the ideals and aspirations of each individual Québécois, but I think the simplest answer is that, historically, Québec and Canada have two very separate (yet parallel?) histories. Unlike territories and nations that have been gradually annexed and welcomed into their current countries, Québec was taken much more forcefully by the British and the result was not favorable for the inhabitants of the former French colony. The British were not kind to the French in North America... as evidenced by their expulsion of the Acadians (many of whom relocated to Louisiana, where they now call themselves
Canadian individual identity is questioned often because it is so diverse and means something different to each person in Canada. Although there is not a set identity there are many values and beliefs that are owned by all Canadians. To find out what Canadians identity is, one has to take into account what has affected it. The United States is the biggest influence on Canadian identity. The U.S. culture is very similar to Canadians as we are exposed to it all the time in media sources.
1. How effectively were returning Canadian soldiers reintegrated into society? How does this compare to American troops following WWI? Be specific. Reintegration of Canadian veterans was very effective.
Jacques Cartier is more of an invader than an explorer. This is due to his actions, motives, and adaptations to the bumps along his journey in hopes to find a new passage to Asia. Cartier’s motivation surrounded around profit, opposed to an Explorer, whose focus would be directed further towards finding new land and discovering new things. These were some of the results following Cartier’s travels, but they were not intended. He harmed First Nations he encountered, and was a kidnapper, taking advantage of the people around him.
Canada has been through a lot of important events to make it the great known red and white flagged country it is today. Little do people know the history and the hard work it took to make it this way. The way of life that all Canadians appreciate and take advantage for was carved for Canadians by the bloodshed by their great ancestors that knew that one day, it will stand on guard for thee. The battle of Ypres, the achievements of women and the invasion of Normandy, are the most important events in Canadian history that showed their bravery and achievements to form the newly independent country. The battle of Ypres was one of the important battles that Canadians fought in.
From 1600-1763, several nations vied for control of the North American continent. These nations included Britain, France, and Spain. The Spanish came to the North American continent because they wanted riches and to convert the Native Americans to Christianity. The French came to the continent to have new trading allies. They aligned themselves with the Native Americans to trade furs.
I believe that Canada did become more independent in the 1920 's. Canada 's major role in WWI had earned the nation respect worldwide. Although Canada had become a nation over half a century before, it had not had real chance to prove itself as a nation. Post-WWI, it was no longer viewed as a British colony, the international political scene realizing that Canada had “come of age,” and was a significant force. Reliance on Britain as a political guide also diminished, and Canada began acting independently in international politics. An example of the increasing spirit of independence from Britain is Canada 's part in the Chanak Incident of 1922.
As French is Canada’s second language, French education needs to be in place for all students, starting from kindergarten to grade 12. There are many benefits on learning a new language. Learning an additional language allows for more career opportunities, allows people to learn about another culture, and has been proven to help with memory. French is the third most spoken language in the world, that says something in it self.
A Comparative View of Literature of Native Americans and European Settlers At the point when the European explorers found the New World it was at that point inhabited by millions of Native Americans. Notwithstanding not having a writing system the Native Americans had a huge oratory literary accumulation of culture, history, and religion. The literature of the early explorers was for the most part narratives and letters. These writings portray the New World and the explorers' movements and experiences (Millisaw).
Linda in her study elaborates that it could simply separate Canadians in three kinds: native Canadians, migrants from former suzerain and migrants from other countries. As a native Canadian, Linda thinks that they could not ignore the experience of colonization that made Canada becomes marginalization through post-colonialism. Here she pointed out Quebec, which is colonized by France, is a good example about first imperial force of pre-colonial history. In 1608, French explorers arrived Quebec and made it became French colony. After the Seven Years War between Britain and France, they signed the Treaty of Paris and ceded Quebec to Britain in 1763.
Quebec is a province in Canada that was founded in 1867. The nationalist movement in Quebec, also known as the Quebec sovereignty movement, is a political movement that promotes the independence of the province from the country of Canada. This conflict was between the Catholic people of Quebec, also known as Québécois, and the Protestant people of the rest of Canada. It is often referred to as The Quiet Revolution because no violence takes place. The reasons behind sovereignty were due to Quebec’s fear of losing their unique culture because of the assimilation of the rest of the country.
1603, canada was inhabited by the indians. In 1534 Francois the first sent Jacques Cartier for his first voyage to explore the new world. Champlain discussed an alliance with the indians and the french King which was accepted and was followed with a small celebration. Champlain continued his exploration and explored the Saguenay River. He quotes that in this new world there are no flat lands, everywhere I look all I see is Mountains.
