The construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway presented opportunity to New Brunswick, it would open up markets and jobs. Confederation would cut the cost of the Railway for new brunswick because the costs of building the railroad would be shared by the confederated colonies. Although this benefit was not guaranteed, the intercolonial railway wasn’t promised and it didn’t tell which part of the province would reek its benefits. Another reason against confederation for New Brunswick was its strong economic ties to the United States compared to the rest of the Colonies of Canada. Confederation also meant having to sever these ties and rely more on the other colonies.
However, Michaels has impeccable logos in the article with his references on the idea of love for identity, but does not express his ethos and pathos as fluent. On the other hand, his ethos and pathos are not as strong as his logos, he still shows a great deal of ethos in the article. As mentioned previously, in “The Trouble with Diversity: How We Learned to Love Identity and Ignore Inequality,” Michaels shows an exceptional amount of logos, which can also be viewed as data or evidence on the corresponding topic. In the article, Michaels uses
Diefenbaker’s decision to sign the NORAD closely linked Canada’s defense to the U.S’s and this intimate connection is still present today. In this sense, the Avro Arrow project was worth the money, because it would have made Canada more independent and would not have forced it to rely on a country that wants to control it. The previous governor of the Bank of Canada, Coyne, actually criticized Diefenbaker’s government for its huge reliance on capital exports and loans from the U.S.. Diefenbaker was also putting Canada in grave danger by worsening its relations with other countries. He signed the NORAD but then delayed putting Canadian troops on alert during the Cuban Missile Crisis upsetting the U.S.. He also vexed Britain by discouraging its entry in the Common
Without this flow of commerce, the economy could fail. Consumerism is needed to balance the economy. In conclusion, the idea of "Buy Nothing Day" is potentially harmful to people, businesses, and the economy. "Buy Nothing Day" is faulty because consumerism is a healthy part of the economy and should be embraces. The invention of " Buy Nothing Day" in Canada is not a suitable
“ I don´t think it comes as a surprise to anyone that I stand firmly against the politics of division, the politics of fear, the politics of intolerance or hateful rhetoric”. It has been mentioned before that Justin Trudeau gained a lot of support due to the fact that people identified themselves in his core values and views on key and divisive subjects, this statement being a prime example of that. He believes that the multi-cultural nature of Canada represents a valuable advantage that is yet to be maximized. As he famously said “Diversity is the engine of invention. It generates creativity that enriches the world”.
French people feel that their needs and language rights are superior to those of other areas in Canada. The nationalism in French Canada is an unnecessary and harmful form of patriotism as is effects the government and relationship between Quebec and the rest of Canada. The nationalistic views the Quebec people support show their desire for Quebecois people to unite and prosper as an independent nation separate from the rest of Canada, if this was to happen Canada’s economy, businesses and society would be affected for
The Autobiography of Malcolm X by Malcolm X with Alex Haley’s essay is a great story, which has a tremendous learning. It shows how a cultural background tends to label people in such a way that it can create a negative impact in their life. In many cases, individuals have an opportunity to achieve something better for their life. Malcolm X is just one of many who want to reach a better life, but found others telling him that he does not fit for such as goal or career path. How can someone make us feel that we are not intelligent when we know how smart we are?
In general, assessing whether an argument is a good one based on subtle changes in how you feel about a topic is accurate but in reality the argument lacks true components of an academic argument. During our course we have pined over the arguments in
White privilege is defined as “…………..” After reading this and comparing it to my life and experiences I can recognize the resemblance. As a white person in my society, I hold copious privileges and forms of power that I have not earned, but has been handed. Although, I cannot speak for my entire race when I state this, I believe that any Caucasian person living in Canada, who would be willing to take the time to stop and think about their lives, would realize that they hold power over other racial minorities. This power is acquired solely due to the fact that they have a different colour of skin. This is not to imply that white people cannot be oppressed in other aspects of their lives, as a cause of the other social identities with which they
Conclusion Compared to other nations, such as its neighbour America, Canada has continuously been viewed as a more diverse, respectful, and accepting country. However, Canada is not as perfect as it is deemed. Racial discrimination exists in many parts of the country, including British Columbia.
