Louis Riel was a driving force throughout his entire life. He was a traitor to some, a hero to more, and a leader to all. The father of Manitoba’s actions influence Canada even today, through the Métis he so loved and the government he so radically opposed. Without his political action and leadership skills, we might not have the Manitoba we do now. Born in a period of rapid change for Canada and the territory surrounding it, he was the voice of the minority people during the resistance in Red River.
Since young, Arthur showed admiration of his brother’s abilities in combat and appreciated his foster family for their comfort and guidance. When he declared as the king of Britain, he receives approval from all his subjects and proves himself right on being a born leader by treating each one with generosity and in sometimes, strictness. But above all else, the Round Table is the ultimate example of recognition of individuality. As a gift from Sir Leodegrance, Arthur’s father-in-law, the table presented an unique concept: “whenever the knights meet, their thrones, their services, and their relationship to one another will be equal”.

They recognize the name John A. Macdonald knowing he was the first Prime Minister of Canada and might have recollection of the things he had brought forward, but many are unaware of all that he brought forward was included within the National Policy. The National Policy helped to create Canada with the provinces involved, created the Canadian Pacific Railway, and united Canada in all due to MacDonald’s determination to bring all of Canada together. It can be said that Macdonald did well for Canada, he was looked up by many as he was the first prime minister of Canada and had a political career for almost fifty years. He brought forward the National Policy with the three distinct parts, trying to do everything he could to make Canada a bigger country so he could have more support within the confederation he had formed.
Arthur Currie was one of the greatest generals in Canada. He led Canada to win Vimy Ridge and he was known for his training, strategies and for telling his soldiers the goal of what they were doing. Arthur Currie trained his soldiers in variety of ways, which lead to his greatness. Currie was in fact devoted to his men. Determined to keep casualties low, he challenged impractical orders from the high command, ensured every attack was meticulously prepared by putting them through rigorous training (Unlikely General, 2001).
Listening to McLarty, it became clear that although him and President Clinton were close friends, he still saw Bill as one to be respected as more than a friend. He shared that he always called him Mr. President, because doing otherwise seemed like a disrespect to Clinton and his accomplishment as president. So when he said that before telling him about Vince, he clarified that the country was safe, I really connected the pull between Clinton being a friend and the president. There were many other stories that McLarty shared that showed his loyalty to President Clinton and Bill Clinton. I actually really enjoyed this interview, going into it I fully expected to be bored out of my mind, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Within these five books we get to vicariously walk through the life of Wheeler from his time in college whilst residing in Frankfort, Nebraska to his last moments in life in the murky French trenches during World War I.

Although, not by choice, Wheeler attends a religious university and this seems like the perfect life course for a young studious man with good financial backing. In fact, Wheeler often finds himself unfulfilled with this stable and secure life.
Winston Churchill, one of the greatest prime ministers ever had a epic role in history that helped everyone defeat the Nazis. At the start of Churchill’s life he was born into a wealthy and famous family and eventually became something huge. Then, he became prime minister and became allies with the U.S. and the Soviet Union to eventually make the Nazis surrender. After WWII he got elected to be prime minister once again but then eventually became lower and lower in
Even though Madison was a short little fellow he had a powerful voice and knew how to get his point across. His goal was equality and he wanted to make sure everyone was happy and that is why he created the system of checks and balances to balance out the government by not having one branch be to strong. I believe this is what makes America strong because we have found that balance between the government and the citizens and we as a nation make everyone feel like they are apart of it by having freedoms and
Natashia Apangchan Canadian Identity As an immigrant, and of the 7 years that I’ve stayed here in Canada, I’ve come to know some of the Canadian identity. I have lots on mind but the things that stand out the most is that Canadians are so patriotic and generous, and diverse. To me, I see the Canadians as patriotic because their love for their country is very strong. I have seen the pride in their eyes when they say that they are Canadian.

He had many achievements which helped the country and the future of Canada. Many people say that George Brown wasn’t a good politician and that he wasn’t like a politician at all. I highly disagree with these people due to the fact that he put a lot of effort into the confederation and he was brilliant at debates. Overall, I think that George Brown was an amazing politician and helped to create the country Canada is

For example: abuses 8 and 9 explains how King George III would further tighten his control through the judiciary.
In this acclaimed short, Borders by Thomas King many themes occur through the rising action to the climax making it a truly symbolic book about identity.
