Macdonald wanted to complete the CPR project, however, Mackenzie gave it no thought and immediately cancelled it. Finally, whilst Macdonald was pro-British and encouraged support from Britain, Mackenzie wanted to make Canada an independent country, and he wanted to remove Britain completely out of the equation. Despite Mackenzie’s significant contributions, I believe that Macdonald had better plans to making Canada what it is today. Alexander Mackenzie, being a Liberal, wanted to make Canada a more independent country and he had his own plans of doing so. First of all, he sought free trade with the USA, who was an enemy to Britain at the time due to the War of 1812.
There has been many times that the Quebec separatists’ movements have fought to have the province of Quebec removed from the confederation because they feel that the constitution does not properly support Quebecers needs. The separatists’ have been fighting to “recognize the francophone population in Quebec as a ‘nation’ or ‘distinct society.’” To have this level of recognition though for Quebec in the constitution there would have to be a major amendment made or a whole reworking of the constitution. When the Constitution Act, 1982 Quebec had major problems with it because the decisions “were made without Quebec’s consent.” The lack of consent has made many Quebecers mad about the Constitution because it changed a major part of Canadian law without the consent of one of the largest provinces. The fact that they were left out of such an influential decision means that it would be hard to get Quebec on board for any time of constitution change even if it might benefit them in the
In later decades, in the War of 1812, America would try to stop trade with Britain again using a method called embargo, which would not be effective because they did not have the debt that the War had caused. Therefore, the reason that the actions of the colonists worked is because of the strain that the War had put on Britain’s
He also wrote The Declaration of Independence, and was the third president of the United States. Jefferson and Hamilton’s ways of eliminating the debt were extremely different, and it is evident that the two men had shockingly different views for the United States of America. Alexander Hamilton was evidently, a man of the North. He believed in a more industrial way of making America prosper. Instead of a very individualistic way of achieving financial security, Hamilton believed in a collaborative flourishment, where businesses and companies could be established and prosper for the nation.
The controversy that exists between the two parties during the convention shaped the ideology of the upcoming parties, The Hamiltonian and the Jeffersonian.The parties both hated the British, and the Jeffersonian party prefered France over Britain. Thomas Jefferson ultimately feared the Federalists and didn’t have trust in the government when elected as a secretary for Washington’s cabinet. Anti-Federalists and the Jeffersonian party didn’t have a large say in government when they first started. This is what people like Amos Singletary feared. While the Jeffersonian party wanted to get out the truth and print press about the government who was more Federalist favored, the president put out acts directly violating the Constitution.
The article also claims that there will be a $138 million expansion of detention centres in Vancouver and Montreal. This way it would reduce the the use of provincial jails as detention centres for immigrants. I believe that this is idea of a new expansion for dentition centres is a waste of resources and is implying that Canada will attain more unwanted immigrants in the future— which is ironic since Canada is trying to limit the amount of unwanted immigrants entering the country. Therefore they should be enforcing their laws and providing a strict grounds before anyone has the chance to seek refuge in
Hamilton presented a plan to Congress to pay off war debts as fast as possible even if the debts were not promptly paid but was opposed by the southerners because they believed they shouldn’t help pay the debt the northerners still owed. Hamilton hoped to use the new government’s power to unite the disagreeing states and help accomplish his plan. Though the rights of the states were not nearly as important as national power and unity, they tried to keep order among the people in attempting to demonstrate federal power. “Hamilton's ideas about the role of the government in the American system contributed importantly to the ability of the new national government to assume its broad authority.”
Otherwise, it very well may not have had the same effect at a different time, and it wouldn’t have caused the same amount of change. Unfortunately, the Catholic Church didn’t like the idea of people breaking away and going to other denominations. They also didn’t like the loss in indulgences as people realized that they didn’t need to pay to free their loved ones from purgatory or be released of sin. So, the church came up with the idea of Counter-Reformation, and then it created the Council of Trent which both held to the idea of bringing back Catholicism and fighting the spread of Protestantism. There was also the start of the Jesuits who wanted to spread Christianity and went to further out areas, like India, to spread their
As conflicts between the catholics and the protestants became more violent, it affected the English economy. In Europe, England was known for their production of woolen cloth, and they had been successful in establishing trade companies in other Europeans countries. But, because of the increasing unemployment caused by severe religious conflicts in England, the English slowly began to look for opportunities in the Americas. Even though England was inexperienced with overseas trading, or heard that there were hostile Indians, they were still hopeful in establishing an overseas trade like the
Levying extra tax on foreign magazine to protect culture from losing is not unfair by any mean.I think If foreign magazines hold a higher price than the local ones,most of the people will buy their domestic magazine.So In order to safe the culture,imposing taxes against foreign magazines is inevitable. American invasion on Canadian magazine industries would cause the extinction of Canadian writing and a Canadian point of view.So If I were the president of Canada,first of all, I would create awareness among the country-men,if I were in the position of Canadian government.I would consider the one that contradicts with genuine Canadian culture, thoughts and social values as a foreign invasion to the country.A split-run magazine usually contains large proportion of materials that does not go with the domestic culture so I would ban those.And also levy high tax on others that circulate throughout the
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.
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
This was especially true with regards to a particular Irish nationalist group, The Fenians. The Fenians were a group of Irish Catholics from the United States with the hope of “liberating Ireland by invading Canada.” They wanted to bring forward the “rise of Irish revolutionary nationalism” which was based on the anger they felt from previous religious conflicts. Although, their plan did not give them the outcome they hoped for since by trying to invade Canada and break the British presence in North America, they “inadvertently contributed to the ‘rise of national feeling’ in Canada” which lead to the Canadian Confederation. In McGee’s eyes, Fenianism was an “irreligious, illegal, immoral, dangerous, conspiratorial, and counterproductive movement.” They were the reason that Irish Catholics had a bad name in Canada. For the Fenians, McGee was a traitor given he was once an Irish revolutionary republican advocate but in turn “betrayed Ireland for power and prestige in
Here are some reasons why confederation was a significant part of history. Reason number is so that Canada would gain independence from Britain. The colonies were under britain laws and they wanted to get rid of that so they wanted to get rid of that, Britain was also going to stop funding the colonies meaning that since Canada joined they didn’t have to worry about Britain
The United States started with The Articles of Confederation and while it was the first official unionization for the country, there were many weaknesses in it; we were unable to function efficiently as a whole. A federal system would be more beneficial over a confederation because it would give all provinces the opportunity to send a representative for their area to represent their needs and there would be a balance in power so that no area is being favored over the
