Peter Skene Ogden was a very successful trapper and explorer without him the territory that now makes up the states of Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah Idaho and Montana would remain undiscovered. The document “PETER SKENE OGDEN 'S JOURNAL OF HIS EXPEDITION TO UTAH, 1825” gives details about one of his most famous expeditions. It is significant because it shows what Ogden and his group experienced and the hardships they had to overcome. It also lays out a map of which way Ogden traveled with his group. Ogden was a Canadian by birth, but was a descendant of early American Ancestors.
Throughout history people have been judged and treated wrongly for the sake of protecting what the majority believed to be right; which in most cases was what the government and higher power thought. Canada is no exception to this, with the exploitation of the Natives peoples, and how immigrants were first treated stepping into Canada. However, in the twenty first century, looking back through time many cases vary down to what one 's option may be. Especially in the case of Louis Riel, who some believe to be the true hero of Canada, while others object stating he was a traitor who committed high treason. Regardless what others may believe, Louis Riel should be remembered as a hero.
Anyone who refused was executed, and the rest, about 5 million, were deported to forced labour camps located mainly in Siberia. When Ukrainian farmers refused to give up their land, Stalin took away their crops, and as a result, about 10 million Ukrainians starved. Sergey Kirov, a political rival of Stalin, was found murdered in 1934. Stalin, although believed to be behind the murder, used this opportunity to further reduce the numbers of his political rivals, and those who opposed him. Stalin arrested thousands of men (who ‘coincidentally’ opposed him), and imprisoned and executed them.
About 6 million people died from the government-engineered famine. Stalin eliminate the Kulaks because they didn’t support him to show that he did controll Ukraine. In 1937 and 1938 the French ambassador attended the public trials that were a part of the “Great Purges”. He wrote “The lessons they (the accused) recited must have been forced from them... It is most likely the GPU [secret police] touched at his weak point...Some would give in to save their families, others in the hope of saving their own lives.” (Document 9) This is saying that at the trials, and outside of the trials people were being controlled by the secret police and desperately trying to keep their families
Toure claims “I thought Canada was the best place in the world, that’s why I chose to come here.” I believe that this is inhumane. Putting an innocent man in jail for wanting a better life for himself. Values Meanwhile, Canada is globally known as a safe haven for those who seek refuge. We also know that Canada has welcomed hundreds of Syrian refugees from October of 2016 until today. But how many of those refugees actually have the right paperwork to enter Canada?
For some, this statue represents bravery; the intrepid spirit of the American people. For the informed individual however, the statue transforms into a monument to brutality and genocide. Columbus earns a good deal of undeserved credit for the discovery of America, leading many to praise him as some sort of hero. Yet people forget that Columbus’ "discovery"
Out of fear, admiration, or respect, people protected Escobar and knew what he was doing was in their best interest. They had been faced with a corrupt government for decades and Escobar took a martyr role and stood up for them. This double sided representation of Pablo Escobar has been the main reason why people can not seem to categorize him under “villain” or “hero.” It seems that it depends on who you are asking that will give you their opinion on who Escobar was. But one thing can not be debated: Pablo Escobar was not a cartoon character or a fictional piece of literature. He was a real person.
William Wallace was a greatly feared man by English troops for he was known as a brutal heartless knight who didn 't seem to believe in mercy. All of this pure anger and hatred for the English likely came from one of four deaths. Wallace 's father was said to be killed in a skirmish with English soldiers, Wallace murdered a noble Englishman before joining the resistance and he was then constantly hunted as an outlaw by the english, his love interest Marion was murdered by englishman, and his uncle was murdered in retaliation to Wallace 's actions against Edward I. Though seen as a hero with a brutal death, he may have been one of the cruelest and darkest characters in Scotland
Louis Riel went against the Canadian government because he was trying to help and support the Metis. Riel did not want the Metis to lose their rights. Louis Riel was the leader in the 2 rebellions. He was the leader in the rebellion because he wanted to make sure that the Metis could keep their lands. Going against the Canadian government and sacrificing his own life for the Metis proves that Louis Riel is a hero, a visionary and a leader who will be remembered for his
Creon had to choose whether to follow the rules the land or follow the rules of divinity in this performance (Richard J Franke The power of the humanities…). Creon had decided to follow the rules of the land, the outcomes of following the rules ended with Antigone dying which he sentenced to death, his son died and wife leaving him alone. This is one of the worst types of torture that is imaginable to human beings, because according to the Harlow experiments after the first three months of the experiment, The Monkees that were released ended up starting after 5 days due to it the scientists to believe as being emotional anorexia (Harlow et al. 92). This means that because of such a sudden change in the dynamic of a primate's life they weren't so much shock that they could not even eat the same food that they have been eating and forcibly killing themselves due to distress.
On October 5th, 1970, this group kidnapped the British trade commissioner, James Richard Cross, and threatened to kill him unless their demands were met. These demands included the release of 23 prisoners associated with the FLQ and their manifesto to be read on national TV. Five days later, even after a few government concessions, the FLQ then kidnapped Pierre Laporte, the Quebec Minister of Labour and senior Cabinet. Panic erupted and on October 16, Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau invoked the War Measures Act. This Act allowed for a peace officer to make arrests and to search any premises without a warrant, should they have reasons for suspicions.
Brian Mulroney actions were evidence to this statement. He stood up and said something about what he believed was wrong, and never wavered in his belief for what he thought was right. Winston Churchill said that “There are no limits to the majestic future which lies before the mighty expanse of Canada with its virile, aspiring, cultured, and generous-hearted people.” He spoke to the kindheartedness and potential of Canadian people. Churchill truly understood what made Canadian people so special; it was their values, vindictiveness, and finally their generosity. Just being a citizen of Canada does not make one truly Canadian.
He loved and took amazing care of his mother and even after her death continued to respect what she would have wanted. He also strived to be like his maternal grandfather who had served as a Canadian leader in the Upper Canada Rebellion, and as the first mayor of Toronto. This, along with his parents constantly encouraged him to get into law and politics, led to him eventually taking office and for that we can all be grateful. King truly was an honourable, valiant, and innovative leader. Both in his public and private life.
In the beginning of the book Macbeth. Macbeth is selfless, and truly devoted to benefiting the people. Macbeth saves the country, and the king admires him. Duncan states “ No more that thane of Cawdor shall deceive our bosom interest, go pronounce his present death, and with his former title greet Macbeth” This suggests that Duncan admires the great deeds of Macbeth. He admires Macbeth because of the great things he has done to save the country, Duncan gives Macbeth the Cawdor title.
