In addition, the misuse of the burial ground by the wrongful present owners disrespected those buried there. The initial dispute was between the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and Stoney Point Ojibway band, who were occupying the Ipperwash Provincial Park by protesting. In order to assert their claim to the land, on Sept. 4, 1995, a group of about 30 people from the First Nation marched in and began occupying Ipperwash Provincial Park, planning to peacefully occupy the land. In spite of that, the OPP felt threatened by the movement of Aboriginals coming in Camp Ipperwash. The Ontario government, headed by then-premier Mike Harris, wanted them removed as posthate as possible.
They’re a lot of farmers from the putrid South trying to make us enter Canada. The risk of raising tensions between the British and causing another war isn’t worth it. Also, they said that the British were supplying the Natives with weapons. We all know that the Natives are quite ludicrous, they’ll fall to our might once
With these acts of terrorism plaguing Quebec, Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau enacted the War Measures Act. This was the only time ever to be ever done so during a time of peace. This action is very controversial even to this day. The enactment of the War Measures Act was not justified because it removed civil rights, increased fears and very little communication between parties. The War Measures Act was not justified because it revoked rights of
In 1965 Lester Pearson presented Canada 's new flag, in light of the fact that the Red Ensign was excessively British, making it impossible to be the image of advanced Canada. Numerous residents opposed for having another banner both for reasons of tradition and they were persuaded that Pearson was pressured into it and didn 't really need another banner. English Canadians needed to keep the Red Ensign yet on February 15, 1965, when Canada 's new banner was raised on Parliament Hill surprisingly, all that they were loaded with, was pride and affection. Pearson and the French Canadian needed another banner yet Diefenbaker and the Conservatives needed to keep the Red Ensign to demonstrate a tiny bit of British representation. So the Liberals
In order to make northwestern frontier safe for settlers, the U.S. needed to drive the British out of Canada so Canada could be added to the U.S. Congress declared war on Great Britain because of the losses at sea, national pride, and a desire to make the frontier safe for settlement. Great Britain burned the white house and other buildings, but in the end, the American flag still waved the fort, proving that the fort had not been captured by Great Britain. Madison encouraged congress to declare war and solved many conflicts by violence with other countries, causing him to be involved with other countries

The keystone pipeline has created great debate among the government of the United States and Native American’s living close to where it would be. There have been several attempts by the counter parts to convince the general public what to do. An example of these are the “Reject and Protect” Cowboy and Indian Alliance Anti-Pipeline Ad and the Support Keystone Pro-Pipeline Ad. The Anti-pipeline add starts with images of the Native American’s and Cowboys together. In the background we can hear Native American chants witch could be used to be more sympathetic with the subject.
The Canadian political system is based entirely on democracy. As a democracy it has the duty “to protect itself against the forces of dissolution as soon as they [appear]” (Pierre Trudeau 133). Few people would disagree with the government’s decision to invoke the act. Surely because of the apprehension, almost everybody in the nation was feeling during the violent insurrection in Quebec. Resulting from “seven years of terrorist assaults in Montreal and Ottawa” (130) in which “resulted in six deaths” (Eric Kierans 181).
This operation was under the command of Canada’s Lieutenant-General Charles Bouchard, who helped enforce an arms embargo and no-fly zone policy (Government of Canada, NATO operations). 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
The Indian Act is a part of Canadian legislation that is intended to elucidate how the federal government handles its responsibilities to the Aboriginal population of Canada. The Indian Act was created to civilize, protect and assimilate the Aboriginal people; however, in the past the Canadian government perceived Aboriginal people as wards, and thought that the Native communities and governments were unqualified of running their affairs (Coates, 2008). In the past the Indian Act was also utilized as an instrument to limit rights of the Aboriginal population. It banned Aboriginal people from practicing their cultural practices, denied them the right to vote, controlled who was permitted to travel from reserve settings, and decided where
Alex Louie and his peers saw a path for freedom when war was declared. They saw an opportunity to fight and return with the solid credential to demand full citizenship rights. They applied to join the Canadian Armed forces and were turned down numerous times due to their ethnicity. They drafted an official national policy forbidding the Chinese to join. Once they were turned down in Canada, they looked to the United States to join their army.
Even though Canada 's decision was divided. Canadian citizens, The Conservative Party and Lester Pearson were against it and the defense minister was for the argument. It was election time in 1963, The Liberals proposed that Canadian forces except nuclear weapons at certain circumstances. The Conservatives along with the Prime Minister Diefenbaker proposed that Canada is independent and can decide by itself on the weapons issue. Many people were for The Liberals because they were afraid of the other options.
There were many events that led to the October crisis of 1970 in Quebec. There are differing opinions about the actions of Front de Liberation du Quebec (FLQ) with some in favor and some against them, but in my opinion any step that may put lives of civilians in danger and lead to hostage situation and anarchy should be stopped to protect innocent citizens of the country. in light of this the war measure act requested by the them premier of Quebec and supported by the then prime minister Trudeau was a necessary step in curbing terrorism and threat to human lives. October crisis of 1970 were triggered by the kidnapping of British trade commissioner, James cross from outside his office and that of minister of labor Pierre Laporte while playing
Most of these loyalists could not go to different states in America because of what they are withholding with the king of Britain. They were migrated mostly to Canada because the King of Britain owned it during those American revolutionary war. They also faced the harsh feelings of being doubt by the Americans. They soon felt that they are losing the on well- being a person stepping on the lands of Americans because of being loyal to the king.
