It has been reported that the province of Quebec has little economic backing in trade to finance a legitimate government in international politics. Also, issues concerning international trade and negotiations will become difficult to deal with as economic stability will not be immediately guaranteed. In addition to that, all the chaos from these problems will inevitably lead to Quebec’s citizens
Canada is well known for its peacekeeping efforts and contributions through peacekeeping. Yet, few of the population knows of Canada’s transition to peacemaking, and how Canada aims to return to keeping peace instead creating it. Peacekeeping first transitioned to peacemaking after the Cold War. The change caused public opinion to drop, resulting in Canada declining missions, and contributing less to the UN’s peacekeeping efforts.

They implemented many barriers to do such. As far back as the 1920s, the Canadian government imposed protective tariffs on foreign magazines. In 1965, Canada furthermore prohibited the importation of split-run editions of foreign-published magazines into their country.

Children and teens should be able to access literature “free of restrictions” (70). Censors of young adult literature “fail to see” the similarities between their “desires to suppress information” about sexuality, violence, and religion and the “successful attempts by dictators to control their countries’ population” (70). Countries who have tried to implement censorship are practicing control over their citizens, which is why Canada should not suppress the population from any literature. If children are told they are not able to read books they are interested in or curious about they will be deterred from pursuing leisurely reading which limits their intellectual

Jordan B. Peterson, and Dr. Bret Weinstein, have been labeled as transphobic, homophobic, bigoted, alt-right, and Nazis as a result of their videos posted to YouTube over the past year voicing their objections to the current topic. This is not due to their true beliefs or behaviors, but due to their astute, erudite critiques concerning laws being passed requiring someone to alter their language, and their refusal to use the newly created gender pronouns. The irony of being called such things like Nazi, is the same hate speech that many transgender, or gender-fluid individuals claim to feel in certain situations as a result of not being addressed using their preferred pronouns.
