The JCPC’s ruling in Board of Commerce, solidified the changing interpretation of Russell v. The Queen. In Board of Commerce, the federal government argued that although wartime had passed with the end of World War One in 1918, they needed to expand their powers and regulate financial markets. As a result, the government passed legislation to control distribution and sale. This legislation greatly impacted Canadian citizens economically and regulated numerous markets. In 1921, the JCPC examined this case with the federal government claiming emergency to avoid price gouging and monopolies.
Colonialism is a perpetual and relevant issue in Canada. The definition of Colonialism is, “The policy or practice of acquiring full or partial political control over another country, occupying it with settlers, and exploiting it economically” according to the Oxford dictionary (The Oxford Dictionary, 2018). On a small scale, Canada is influenced by Britain as British Commonwealth; the consequences that preceded the colonization are evident in the contrast of the standards of living between the general populations and Aboriginals. Colonization can also be or continue with, “geographical intrusion in the form of agricultural, urban or industrial encroachments” (LaRocque, 2008). The freedom of religion in Canada relies on the Eurocentric view
For instance, he quoted "In 1960, President Dwight D. Eisenhower established the original 8.9 million-acre Arctic National Wildlife Range to preserve its unique wildlife, wilderness, and recreational values.". The author says in this quote President Dwight D. Eisenhower made the Arctic National Wildlife Range himself. The author uses logos to express the huge amount of land President Dwight D. Eisenhower established. This relates back to the author's main point, which is that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge should not be developed for industry, because former president Jimmy Carter supported the Arctic National Wildlife
Canada was transformed on April 17, 1982 when Queen Elizabeth II gave her royal acceptance of the Constitution Act. Prior to the signing of the Act, which included the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Canada remained under the control of Britain and individual rights were not guaranteed. The Constitution Act established the Government of Canada, apart from Britain, and granted it the ability to amend its own Constitution. It also gave the Supreme Court more authority, provide the provinces political and economic controls and gave new guarantees of equality and individual rights not provided for in the British North American (BNA) Act. The new Constitution and Charter were controversial in the provinces, but Pierre Trudeau’s determination
We have a tradition in Canada of constructing a major infrastructure such as highways and railways under the rule of law where there is a policy on how to access the land and effects of the communities. The First Nation opposed of the pipeline approval at times and faced police rubber bullets and water cannons on the opening day of the special assembly. The Quebec Chief said “the protests in North Dakota send a clear message to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet colleagues who approved the construction of the Trans Mountain pipeline”(Taske). Pipelines are a very uncommon topic for many of our people because of the disasters it bring to us. Some Canadians have a strong feeling about the things that are decided by the local government and that is the rights to express their own opinions.
Especially when it comes to Middle East. However when it comes to the nation of Israel, Canada and Israel go way back. In 1947, Canada was one of the country to vote in favor of United Nation resolution. Over the year Canada has maintained its support to nation of Israel by opposing against United Nations resolution about Israel occupying Palestinian land. The relationship might have fallen cold over time, but things started to change after 9/11.
The “living Tree” approach versus strict construction is another important aspect of the major terms and conditions set in the constitution act (1867). Canada has a “living tree” approach when it refers to the legal system we have in Canada. The Judical Committee of the Privy Council once stated that “The British North America Act planted in Canada a living tree capable of growth and expansion within its natural limits” (McCormack & Bueckert, 2013). In Canada we have a very democratic way of seeing and applying our decisions on different political views. Whether it’s voting in elections to elect new MP, elect a new Prime Minister or the voting between the political parties in the house of commons when deciding on important issues in our society, a decision is never made without the vote between many people.
Over the past few decades, there has been many distinct perspectives and conflicts surrounding the historical context between the Indigenous peoples in Canada and the Canadian Government. In source one, the author P.J Anderson is trying to convey that the absolute goal of the Indian Residential School system in Canada has been to assimilate the Indian nation and provide them with guidance to “ forget their Indian habits”, and become educated of the “ arts of civilized life”, in order to help them integrate into society and “become one” with their “White brethren”. It is clearly evident throughout the source that the author is supportive of the Indian residential school system and strongly believes that the Indian residential School System
Political activism movements of aboriginal communities in Canada have been occurring since the late 19th century in an attempt to organize political associations to pursue equality and fairness throughout the nation. Throughout persistent criticism of the Canadian federal government (especially the “White Paper” policy from 1969), major aboriginal organizations – most commonly known is the Assembly of First Nations – that began gaining political recognition and was later joined in 2012 by the national advocacy movement of “Idle No More.”
Two of the theories of leadership are transactional and transformational. Transactional leadership is setting clear expectations of an individual and using rewards or punishment to achieve results, while transformational leadership is identifying the need for change and trying to achieve the change. Two Canadian public administrative leaders who show these leadership skills were Tommy Douglas and Sir George Arthur French. Tommy Douglas was able to show transformational leadership through creating healthcare, Canada-wide pension plan and bargaining rights for civil servants; while Sir George Arthur French was able to show transactional leadership by leading his men across western |Canada, and he showed transformation leadership by challenging the Canadian government. Tommy Douglas would have been seen as a great leader in the Behavioural Era due to his ability to identify the need for change and the betterment of society; however, he would have not been seen as a great leader in the Personality Era due to him alienating the Saskatchewan doctors in his healthcare implementation.
Sikhs migrated to Canada after the attack on the Golden Temple, by the Indian Government. Sikhs went to Canada in search for a new life and to escape persecution by the Indian Government. (cited from: http://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/sikhism/) Instead of Canada joining with India and banning Sikh from entering their country they allowed them settle there and allowed them to become citizens.
When the British and French withdrew from the battle there would be a U.N force in the area so they could deal with the situation. This plan resulted in the ending of the Suez Crisis, Lester even won the Nobel peace prize. This shows Canada 's independence. If it weren 't for Canada the Suez Crisis ended. It is possible that a war could have occurred.
We are gathered here today to discuss a serious problem, I am John Butler and must stay connected to Great Britain. our heritage ties up with Britain and we will never loose this English heritage. This is causing our beloved king to punish us with taxes and horrendous acts upon us. We the people of America are being controlled by the patriot’s actions. Joseph Galloway said in 1774, “If we sincerely mean to accommodate the difference between the two countries, and to establish their union on more firm and constitutional principles, we must take into consideration a number of facts which led the Parliament to pass the acts complained of, since the year 1763, and the real state of the Colonies.
