We should not really care who gets credit for the good work, only that the good work gets done. Many of our respected Canadians are global citizens, and that is how it should be. The fourth argument in favour of prioritizing democracy promotion in our foreign policy—and the one I am most sympathetic to—emerges from Canadian values. Regardless of how well we practice it ourselves, democratic governance is a critical part of our country’s history and a continuing aspiration for its citizens. It also continues to inspire many around the globe who live under repressive governments, as the recent demonstrations by Burmese monks so vividly show.
For brevity, it can be stated that such practices likely had a bearing on the Canadian Government. Internal metrics, such as revenue, employment, GDP and other economic factors that are closely tracked by governments are also a factor, if not the prime motivation for governments to act. Based on these factors, as well as the breach of ethics of defending “culture” as discussed above, it may be argued that the government was mainly if not wholly pressured to protect the market on financial
For instance, (1) what guarantees that the voter turnout on such an issue could be satisfying enough to consider outcomes to be real reflection of the Canadian citizens on the matter; (2) regardless the election turnout, citizens might go for a “yes” without considering the negative consequences that could be associated with their yes, including job losses. In case they enjoy US magazines more than Canadian magazines, a “yes” could come out a winner, to the detriment of Canadian economy. It is the right of the Canadian citizens to read their preferred magazines, but on the other hand, it is also the responsibility of the Canadian government to ensure the economy prospers. So, a balance is ideally needed. Sometimes, issues concerning domestic economic policies should be left to the government to solve, especially in a civilized society where the government has been democratically elected and has transparency in its
Elimination of the Flag ▪ Once the flag is no longer in a good condition, it should be destroyed in a dignified way, such as burning it privately. The Prime Minister at that time, Lester B. Pearson created a flag called Pearson Pennant, the blue borders represent the two oceans bordering Canada. however there were no any favors among Canadian citizens. In 1957, new Red Ensign with red maple leaf was approved by the government because it is more nature - winter is longer in
I support the penny being retired.The article “Should the Penny Retired” written by Toronto(AP) has many valid points on why the penny should be retired.It is such a nuisance to have pennies these days. No one will pick a penny if they see one on the floor or on the street. People nowadays don 't get excited if they see a penny.That is why I am supporting the retirement of the pennies. With me supporting the retirement of the penny I have some evidence on why the penny should be retired. One piece I have is in the article it states that it costs 11 million dollars to make pennies in other countries.
John A. MacDonald and Alexander Mackenzie were both Prime minister of Canada who sought to do the best for their country. Due to them being in opposite political parties, they both had different policies that they wanted to imply on Canada. McDonald 's policies were, the National Policy, the creation of the Canadian Pacific railway, slowing down the development of the Supreme court and the Royal military college. While Mackenzie 's policy was to increase free trade with the US, make Canada more independent, and cancels the building of the railway. Nevertheless, MacDonald was the one who I believe benefitted Canada 's future.. With MacDonald ordering the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway throughout all of Canada.
The argument and proposals by Larissa Ducatti Flister on how to bolster the Canadian economy through legalization and taxation of marijuana is provides enough fiscal evidence, supported by articles on the effects on Canadian society the criminalization of marijuana has had over the past years. While she contends the economic windfall of taxing marijuana is a benefit to the Canadian economy she also shows that government oversight will ensure greater safety to the users and thereby further cut costs to the government by reduced medical and emergency charges. The information clearly supports her claims about the societal benefits and indicates that crime would be reduced from prosecuting people for use and possession of marijuana. This would
I believe that the large water footprint prevalent in Canadians is because of our government. Firstly, if the government were to enforce a law making water meters mandatory in every household and business, then we would expect to see a huge decrease in the average water consumption. Only 72% of households have water metres, a flat rate per month is not effective because people may be deceived into thinking that they are very conservative with their water usage, however they are using 200+ litres of water than the average Canadian household. Secondly, it should be mandatory that business have a water strategy carefully outlined and disclosed to the government. This helps the government to understand how businesses are making use of their water conservatively.
The consequences now is that Canada has 97 lakes, three oceans, and 62 rivers protected in comparison to the 32,000 lakes, and 2.25 million rivers before the bill was passed (Graveline, 2012: 295). This means that Canadian waters are not environmentally protected are therefore easily accessible to companies and the industry as a whole. With the history of oil spills, which is the industry that Bill C-45 is benefiting, the people nearest those population will feel the impacts of this bill the most. The most recent oil spill happened on April, 2011 documented to be the largest land spill in Alberta known as the Little Buffalo oil spill which affected Lubicon Cree community the most (Graveline, 2012:
There is plenty of blame to go around, but blame is counterproductive to the accuracy of history. No one wants to be the “bad guy,” so an environment free of judgement is important for recording experiences as accurately as possible. It is through this that we can create a more detailed account of what happened. Residential Schools are necessary to Canadian history. The indigenous people were Canadians long before it was colonized by European powers.
On her opinion, racism and prejudice should be educated. Humor should be approached with caution in Canada, as in other places, because the sense of political correctness is very strong in many social circles. Take time to learn the appropriate and acceptable limits of humor to avoid the risk of offending someone. However, it is important to note that humor is region and city specific in some cases. In the East Coast of Canada, for instance, humor can be self-effacing and people’s sensitivities are tougher
For example, Native life expectancy is lower; they have fewer high school graduates and higher unemployment, they have lower incomes, enjoy fewer promotions in the workplace and remain, as a group, the poorest in Canada. The Nisga 'a Treaty was the start of negotiations between Aboriginals and The Canadian government in the 20’th Century, in hope for more rights and representation. I believe despite many current measures being taken for First Nations people, Canada has not done enough for those who originally resided on our sacred land. On Canada’s 150 Birthday, I posed a very important question to the general public, attending the celebrations in Victoria. Has Canada Done Enough for First Nation’s People?
The only target of the political parties is to come in power. They consistently try some new convincing techniques to increase the number of voters in their favor. Political parties constantly try to show them to be a superior party over the other ones which includes the use of the different kind of cogent techniques. Party leaders try to show that their party will always work for the better future of Canada and Canadians, but did not show that potential after coming in
Although a federal inquiry into this issue has been launched due to pressure from various activist group, this does not eliminate the blatant disregard for Aboriginal issues in Canada. A 2015 UN report has stated that Indigenous women are more likely to die due to violent acts. Furthermore, the UN has also urged Canada to take action regarding violence and find reasons as to why it occurs because it violates rights (“UN urges Canada,” n.d.). In order to create a better society, this issues must be recognized by the government and Canadian citizens should be made aware of them as
I believe that individuals and companies, that relied heavily on Canadian based publications for their livelihood, fought to preserve said livelihood by lobbying for taxes and regulations on foreign competition. To me, this is evidence of a very small minority manipulating the government to become sympathetic to their struggle, in staunch disregard of popular public opinion, evidenced by consumer purchasing choices. This struggle is not exclusive to Canada or the magazine dispute. Countries involved in free trade love to export their domestically produced good to other countries, thereby stimulating growth in their own economy, but this growth is not realized without cost. The trade off being made is that some domestic products and businesses will fall to competition from imported foreign products and businesses.
