The U.S. culture is very similar to Canadians as we are exposed to it all the time in media sources. The events in American history have also affected Canada from a political perspective, which lead to the Democracy that is present today. Another way the U.S. has affected Canada is from a military perspective because Americans are quick to jump to war and Canada has had to help control them which lead to them being peacekeepers. The United States helped mold the Canadian identity by being both a threat and support to the nation; this will continue into the 21st century but Canada will keep it’s unique identity. A country 's culture can be seen as interchangeable with identity; in Canada there is evidence of American culture everywhere.
316). Rocher draws upon the same historical timeline as Trudeau when he alludes to the period of modernization in Quebec after WWII, however he focuses on the distribution of autonomy and responsibility to provinces for managing their own institutions separate from the central government (p. 316). The transfer of health care, education, social services, and economic development was representative of the pragmatism of the constitution and the sharing of jurisdictions between regional and central governments (p. 316). Although there is no mention of the role of nationalism by Rocher, he thoroughly mentions the role the central government plays in ensuring national unity, he describes the position of the federal government as “having to consult, coordinate and, inevitably, compromise in the face of mounting federal-provincial conflict”, this is connected to the discussion of compromise between the central and regional governments described by Trudeau (p.
He wrote, “As a nation, we have made peace and war”. Jay admits that the Articles Of Confederation are weak and they cannot continue to rule the country and that the government was hastily formed, and it was not granted sufficient power.

The Liberal government “has brought a change in tone, a more active Canadian engagement in multilateral organizations, and a promise to strengthen Canada’s commitment to UN peace operations”(Fergus Watt 16). Canada has now recognised that “the nature of peacekeeping has changed and therefore new approaches are required beyond the traditional “boots on the ground””(Romeo Dallaire, Shelly Whitman 1). The Canadian government is planning to create peacekeeping missions that will “address the realities of today's wars: the use of child soldiers, complex and ambiguous theatres of operation, more equitable and prepared peacekeeping forces”(Romeo Dallaire, Shelly Whitman 9). Canada is now able to build a number of troop contributing countries which will be able to “address the realities faced by peacekeepers today”(Romeo Dallaire, Shelly Whitman 11), and has promised to forge a new path by including women in missions and leading solutions to issues around the globe. Canada’s new government is taking the old way of peacekeeping and making it more modern and suitable for the issues of today, which will help countries

For this, Currie was promoted to lieutenant-general in charge of the Canadian Corps. At forty-one, he was the youngest officer ever to grasp such a rank. The other Allied nations had already lost thousands of men in a sea of blood and mud at the Battle of Passchendaele. Currie was then called in to do what other Allied generals had not been able to, and although he objected and predicted that too many Canadian men would be lost in battle, he eventually agreed. He applied his usual strategies to the situation and once again relied on his engineers to build roads, drain ditches, and even build a railway, all while being fired upon by the Germans.
Essay: Rough After the second world war, the cold war had impacted Canada’s relations drastically.

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).
