There are several similarities and differences between America and Canada and in this paper I 'm going to discuss those things.

Canada is talked amongst other countries throughout the world as a safe, secure place to live. Majority of people do not know the heinous crimes that take place in Canada daily, especially whilst using a gun. Canada does not come close to the United States when comparing mass shootings, death by a gun, or homicides using a gun; although, the gun crimes in Canada are not improving. While Canada has more stringent gun laws than the united states, gun control in Canada should still be improved for citizen’s safety. Canada is often praised for having more efficient gun laws than the United States, but most people do not know that Canadian laws too, have much room for improvement.
Estevan is a trained English teacher but is working nights at a restaurant to make money since he can not get a real job because he is an illegal immigrant. They also have very little possessions in their name compared to how normal families live. This is shown when Estevan and Esperanza are leaving with Taylor to go to a safe house in Oklahoma. “Estevan and Esperanza had one suitcase between them and it was smaller then mine... I had packed for a week, ten days at the outside, and they were packed for the rest of their lives.”

Americans had rarely accepted outsiders as equals, and that was the case with immigrants coming to the U.S in the 1840s to the 1920s. A time in America where immigrants were not considered inferior to native white Americans did not exist. The hatred of anything non-American, especially with the coming of World War I in 1914, would only cause more Americans to despise immigrants. Part of this was rooted simply in racism, which existed towards groups other than African Americans, but much of it was simply that Americans considered themselves the chosen people while everyone else was below them. Thus, despite immigrants being accepted into America, those immigrants were still treated far worse than white citizens between the 1840s and 1920s, for the prejudice against them was obvious even in the laws created.

Beginning in the 20th century, Canada was encouraging immigration to take place, and for people to migrate to this country that promised free land and exemption to follow whatever religion they desired to follow. However, there were many disputes that arose when attempts to bring people in began. Our past reality was portrayed a certain way however, Canada currently in the 21st century has evolved immensely.

Political ideology is basically a political code of conduct, gathering up similar ideals and beliefs about how society and government should work. Political ideology does not refer only to politicians, but to anyone who is inserted in a society. Given the plurality of opinions and beliefs among people, it is not a surprise to realize the variety of political ideologies all over the world.
Since I have moved to Toronto, if I have made any accidental eye contact with strangers it would make me really uncomfortable.

On a day-to-day basis, my daily commute involves a 5-minute walk to the coffee shop then I would take the bus to the subway station, on my way to school.
