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.
The Canadian Charter Of Rights And Freedoms witch was signed in 1982 by PM Pierre Trudea has section that represent language minorities. Sections 16 to 20 are all language rights talking about french and english being equal and be able to use both languages in government. But section 23 is talking about being able to be educated in both english and french if there is sufficient need.

Montreal, the home of hockey, is the best city to do for the 5 Themes of Geography. I mean it is Canada, who doesn’t like Canada. Like I mentioned before, the five themes go perfectly well with this city. Montreal is in the province of Quebec. The population in 2011 was 1,649,519.
Thus, forms of amalgamation are closely related with colonial history, the emergence of nation-states, and the resulting policies of exclusion and inclusion on the basis of citizenship (Rodriguez, 2010, p. 253). As can be seen in Canada, multiculturalism is enshrined in the nation’s constitution, therefore, multiculturalism reflects a principal part of the social and political context of Canada. Multiculturalism, therefore, persists as it is the belief of how Canadians ought to be, the values that Canadians hold onto. The Canadian multicultural policy, put in place in 1971, serves as a guideline for government policy as well as a framework for national discourse on the construction of Canadian society (Mahtani, 2002, pp. 67-68).
Similar to the benefits of the universal healthcare system, Canada prides itself on the great variety of cultures, ethnicities and religions that are present within the country. In 1971, the Canadian government began to recognize the value of all diversities and officially adopted the Multiculturalism policy. In consideration of this policy, Canada has been nicknamed the mosaic (Pohorelic) since the nation continually strives to embrace and promote multiculturalism. For instance, all citizens who reside in Canada are able to have an identity, feel accepted and take pride in their ancestry. In addition, on July 12, 1988, the House of Commons passed the Bill C-93: “An Act for the preservation and enhancement of multiculturalism in Canada” (Legislative
CANADIAN LITERATURE ASSIGNMENT THE HISTORY OF CANADIAN LITERATURE THE HISTORY OF CANADIAN LITERATURE Canadian literature refers to the body of writing authored by Canadians that include writings in the languages of aboriginals as well as the translations of such text. “Canadian literature in English” refers to all the Anglophone writings of Canada including the works of immigrant writers and temporary residents of Canada. The early writings of Canadian literature in English were written by explorers, travelers and British officials in the form of diaries and journals. The early writings follow the British traditions and also values local cultures. It also describes the heroic journeys of the explorers to the north and west and their encounters with the First nations.
For example, when Pontiac introduces himself as the head of Ottawa and life itself with the phrase, “I am he who made heaven and earth, the trees, lakes, rivers, all men, and all that thou seest, and all that thou hast seen on earth.” A phrase from Pontiac’s speech parallels to John 15:18 of how Jesus Christ warns his disciples that the world will hate them because they Him; the sentence reads “Because . . . I love you, you must do what I say and [not do] what I hate.” Pontiac brings his audience to his world about how modern technology corrupted his people. All he wants them to do is maintain the old ways and preserve their heritage.
10 reasons why homosexuality should not be legalised 1. Homosexuality is an irony to the concept of procreation and rearing of children. 2. Ideally in according to every personal law the institution of marriage is defined as a union between a man and a woman. 3.
My second reason for supporting LGBT/ same-sex marriage is the reason for discrimination against marriage. The UDHR article number 7 illustrates that all people are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination. Furthermore, article 1 of the UDHR also indicates that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. We should act towards one another in a spirit of a brother. By denying the same right as anybody else just because you are different is a clear form of discrimination, and it goes against the constitution.
As long as same sex marriage is not directly affecting society marriage should be allowed. In the counter argument written by Grigg’s he tries to list different ways that same sex marriage effects society but none of his arguments listed are points that can’t be easily argued, which is what made Michaelson’s argument stronger than Griggs. Michaelson also speaks from first person experience which further strengthens his use of ethos. By using personal pronouns such as I, and my Michaelson is informing the reader that he himself has personally experienced the struggles of same sex marriage. Receiving a first-hand source makes an argument more credible as well.
In the journal article, “Placing future senate reform in context”, Bruce Hicks created what some have called “The Tim Hicks Amendment”, in where he promotes the idea of giving every province six senators. Another proposal was to take all the reserve territory and create a single province. This would ultimately give Aboriginals the privilege of having a financial and economic unit, allow them to make negotiations with other provinces, to be able to sit at federal meetings, and to have primary control over their own resources. These three proposed forms of reform are feasible, and each one offers its own viable solution to go about successfully reforming the senate. Initiative should be taken by the provinces and the Canadian government to come up with a solution to the problems that the senate constantly faces.
The sovereignty movement has always been about the protection of the French language and Quebec Culture. Outside of Quebec, the levels of assimilation of French speaking Canadians are very high. The federal government’s policies of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism
The Red Couch Tour has a strong influence on Canadians and conveys a clear message through these different stories. The main artifact is a red couch with the Canada’s 150 maple leaf logo; and the location of the red couch placement is close to the ‘empty space’ of Canada. The secondary artifact is the invited Canadians who story tell about Canada’s past time and identities. The meaning of the artifact is more than what meets the eyes; this event develops on the theme of unification, storytelling and cultural nationalism. These theme is described from this quote, “Instead of going to peoples’ living rooms, we’re taking it to them.
The “living Tree” approach versus strict construction is another important aspect of the major terms and conditions set in the constitution act (1867). Canada has a “living tree” approach when it refers to the legal system we have in Canada. The Judical Committee of the Privy Council once stated that “The British North America Act planted in Canada a living tree capable of growth and expansion within its natural limits” (McCormack & Bueckert, 2013). In Canada we have a very democratic way of seeing and applying our decisions on different political views. Whether it’s voting in elections to elect new MP, elect a new Prime Minister or the voting between the political parties in the house of commons when deciding on important issues in our society, a decision is never made without the vote between many people.
Aucoin Essay Our new prime minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau has given a set of democratic reforms to minister LeBlanc who has been given the task to deal with the problems regarding parliament issues. Our prime minister has promised Canadians real change to the way the government governs by committing to invest in Canada’s growing economy, to strengthen the middle-class, to help the hard working class, to provide help to those whom need it most compared to those who do not need it, and to invest in the public to create jobs, economic growth and a broad-based expansion.
