The Price-Anderson Nuclear Industries Indemnity Act (Price-Anderson Act) was first signed into law on September 2, 1957. The act serves as an amendment to the 1946 Atomic Energy Act (AEA), intended to stimulate development of the private nuclear industry by establishing limits of liability and indemnifying the nuclear industry against liability from a nuclear incident. Additionally provides compensation coverage for the general public in case of an incident. (Hore, 2009). The Price-Anderson Act places an increasingly disproportionate liability on the taxpayer in the event of a nuclear incident, whether accidental, from negligent or malicious acts, effectively protecting the industry regardless of fault.
The Articles of Confederation were put into effect to form some semblance of a central government, to keep peace between the states and to keep individual states from conducting foreign diplomacy on their own. Unfortunately the articles were flawed and gave the existing government little to no power. Federalism was the number one weakness of the Articles of Confederation. Without a separation of powers this type of government was bound to fail.
Following the Revolutionary War, America had just gained independance from Great Britain and needed to form a new government. The Articles of Confederation were established as an attempt to create a government that was unlike Britain’s. Unfortunately, the Articles of Confederation had several weaknesses. When in the process of repairing those weaknesses, the Federalists and the Anti-federalists formed. The Articles of Confederation were very weak as well as useless to America and because of this, the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists could not agree on a new type of government.
Robert Borden was Prime Minister during the first World War. He was born on the 26th of June, 1854, in Grand-Pré Nova Scotia. Robert Borden was a Canadian lawyer and politician before he served as the eighth Prime Minister of Canada. He was elected twice on October 10th, 1911, and again in 1917. He retired on July 10, 1920, and was the third Nova Scotian to hold this office. Borden died in Ottawa due to congestive heart failure on June 10th, 1937. Without Borden’s crucial efforts during World War I, Canada would have never been an independent power.
The Intolerable Acts can be viewed as one of the first sparks to the flaming fire of America claiming Independence. The Intolerable Acts, also called the Coercive Acts, were a series of laws passed in 1774 in order to punish the colonies for defying their rule. Four out of five of the Intolerable Acts were directed towards Massachusetts directly and the other was directed at Quebec. All of the Acts were supposed to stop the colonies from defying England’s Rule and show the colonies that England was still in charge.
While there are a vast number of proponents, the same thing cannot be said for opponents. The first group of people to oppose AB 12 would be the assembly members that voted against the formation of this law back in 2010. Assembly members against the bill believed that there were not sufficient government funds to put towards it. The second group to oppose Assembly Bill 12 are taxpayers. They believe that programs like Adoption Assistance, Transitional Housing Programs, and Kinship Guardian Assistance have been of enough help for foster youth.
Based on John Tyler unexpected Presidency in 1841, he should be ranked with a 4.5. Though he was a slave owner and joined the Confederate State Congress during the civil war, he still had a very strong will during his Presidency that positively all Presidents after him. He would have been able to do much more if he was able to get anything past the other branches of the government.
Good evening delegates. We are here today to talk to you about the strengths of the Articles of Confederation. The Articles of Confederation are our first attempt at a new government. We are allowed to declare war, peace, and sign treaties with foreign nations, which we were not granted to do under British rule. The Articles of Confederation also enable us to have a say in political matters.
After their triumph in the American Revolution, colonists came together as one to forge the United States of America and to reorganize the colonies after the war. The Articles of the Confederation were America’s first form of self-government. During the time period in which they were in use, there effectiveness were tested through events dealing with foreign relations, economic conditions and the settlement of western lands. Although the Articles experienced some success in dealing with western land, the general effectiveness of the Articles was poor and created potential problems for the young nation. Under the Articles of Confederation its powers included conducting foreign relations, settling disputes between states, controlling maritime
a lot of canadian politicians wanted to get all the territories in canada and the goal was to make a country. But because of all the wars that the british french and the first nations people fighting for the land a lot of people from all sides at time people still had treated their enemies in a bad way. The canadian government wanted to create a big country because they thought that if they create a country with a lot of people they thought that they would be a powerful and a strong nation. Canadian government started the whole idea because they wanted to to create peace with other nations because they thought that if other nations would get weapons and other utilities the fighting for the territory would happen again.
As British Columbia became larger talks about it joining confederation began to arise. Confederationists began to propose the idea of BC joining Canada, but a large amount of people also wanted to join the United States or maintain ties with Britain. A hearing was held that had equal sides anti-confederationists and confederationists. Just then Governor Seymour died and Anthony Musgrave was appointed to become his replacement. Musgrave went around to the annexationists and anti-confederationists winning them over and getting terms from them. One of those being a railway, which was said to be put in within 10 years. BC joined confederation in 1871 and went on to have its debt wiped clean thanks to the Federal government.
First of all, the federal government was now able to deal with language and other rights issues more effectively. Since Canada now had control over the constitution, the federal government was now able to ease tensions created by French and English relations. Moreover, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms was entrenched in the Constitution. This meant that it was firmly established in Canadian law, and that it would be extremely hard for it to be removed or changed in any significant way. Likewise, the rights of Aboriginals were entrenched in the Constitution. This would mark the first time that this occurred, and would also ease previous tensions that flared up between the federal government and the Aboriginals. In addition, women were not entrenched in the Constitution. This meant that they were not guaranteed the rights and freedoms included in the Charter, enraging women across Canada. Finally, had its historical veto power removed by the other premiers of Canada. As a result of this, Quebec was now not able to change the outcome of federal issues alone. However, many Quebecers saw it as a betrayal, and this sparked new separatist movements that were previously non-existent. Thus, the Constitution that Canada fought so hard to patriate for had a variety of drastically important
good morning to you all I am William MacDougall from Canada west. I believe that the entire nation would benefit from confederation, I have prepared a couple of reasons why.
Throughout the period of the Building of the Canadian Pacific Railroad there were many causes and consequences that played a part during the building of the Railroad. The timeline started in 1871, British Columbia entered Confederation with a request of a transcontinental railway connecting it to the rest of Canada. Macdonald, prime minister of Canada, began looking for investors to finance the railroad The Canadian Pacific Railroad was born. In 1872, the Pacific scandal occurred. Canada had its first election since confederation. Sir Hugh Allan gave Macdonald $350,000 for campaign funds, in exchange for the contract to build the railroad. Macdonald government was forced to resign because of the scandal. In 1873, the Liberals
The British North America Act, 1867, which established a federal constitution for Canada, enumerated in Sections 91 and 92 the topics on which the Dominion and the Provinces could respectively legislate. Notwithstanding that the lists were framed so as to be fairly full and comprehensive, soon, it was found that the topics enumerated in the two sections overlapped,
