Colonialism is a perpetual and relevant issue in Canada. The definition of Colonialism is, “The policy or practice of acquiring full or partial political control over another country, occupying it with settlers, and exploiting it economically” according to the Oxford dictionary (The Oxford Dictionary, 2018). On a small scale, Canada is influenced by Britain as British Commonwealth; the consequences that preceded the colonization are evident in the contrast of the standards of living between the general populations and Aboriginals. Colonization can also be or continue with, “geographical intrusion in the form of agricultural, urban or industrial encroachments” (LaRocque, 2008). The freedom of religion in Canada relies on the Eurocentric view
There was a need for the rebellion when the Métis have had enough of being taken advantage of. At the time, land speculators and surveyors laid out square townships and disregarded the strip lots the settlers were used to having. When Rupert's Land was purchased without any consultations with the settlers in the area. The Métis called for Riel, who was the leader of the Métis in the prairies at the time. Riel created a provisional government in the area and tried to negotiate with the Canadian government as much as possible.
The Canadian Pacific Railway was built to help make this happen, but the North-West Rebellion broke out. This rebellion took place in today’s Saskatchewan and Alberta The North-West rebellion was mainly fought by the Metis peoples, directed at the Canadian government as they felt that Canada was not protecting their rights and their land to the extent they agreed through treaty. Big Bear was the head chief of the Metis people, he was striving for a United Cree Nation and to discuss the agreement on treaty six and see if they could adjust it. Big Bear felt that they were not given enough as it was their land originally and they should be able to take what they want. The Metis and Aboriginals were only given about 640 acre of land through treaty six.
Although their numbers were small, they got negative attention from inordinate Canadians. This was prompted by cultural, racial, prejudice and labor fears of economic competition (Johnston,Komagata Maru). There were already Anti-Asian lobbies in Canada who opposed Chinese and Japanese immigrants and they started to dislike on the Punjabi and South Asians. As a result, Canada placed a law on immigrants from India in 1908 with regulations which had to be followed when coming to Canada. Ali Kazimi, who wrote a documentary on the Komagata Maru told the Toronto Star, “that Canada for the first 100 years of its existence had what was effectively a ‘white man's’ policy” ( Tharoor, Trudeau's apology).
The JCPC’s ruling in Board of Commerce, solidified the changing interpretation of Russell v. The Queen. In Board of Commerce, the federal government argued that although wartime had passed with the end of World War One in 1918, they needed to expand their powers and regulate financial markets. As a result, the government passed legislation to control distribution and sale. This legislation greatly impacted Canadian citizens economically and regulated numerous markets. In 1921, the JCPC examined this case with the federal government claiming emergency to avoid price gouging and monopolies.
Sikhs after being Canada started asking for an Independent nation called Khalistan. The Hindus didn’t want this to happen but and went generally unnoticed by the Canadian Government. The Canadian government, at one point even decided to negotiate with India and refused to deport illegal Sikh immigrants, the Canadian government also pushed the Sikhs into gaining residency in Canada. The Canadian government believes the bombings were part of a conspiracy by British Columbia-based Sikh extremists to take revenge against the Indian government for its 1984 storming of the Golden Temple, a Sikh shrine.
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.

The resistance that meets changes of tradition is inevitable. This resistance in this story mainly came from Okeke, Nnaemeka 's father, who fought against Nnaemeka 's decision to marry Nene, someone who was from a different tribe.

Meeting Homer Barron was her biggest change from her old self, because her father refused to let her be in any relationships, but she went out in public with Homer “driving in the yellow-wheeled buggy and the matched team of bays from the livery stable” (454). Consequently, this was only because she was living in her own reality and believed that Homer would be the one to marry her. Homer was “not a marrying man” (454) and would not marry Emily, but she refused to accept the denial of marriage from him, so she killed him to keep him with her forever. She stayed within her house to keep herself in the old South. When she told the men to see colonel Sartoris, she was not aware that “Colonel Sartoris had been dead for almost ten years” (452) at that point.
Since Jay didn’t have an army to force the British out of America, he used his words to persuade them. Document E: After America defeated the British, land claim conflicts arose among the states. America eventually came up with a solution. The solution was that the government will sell the land west of Pennsylvania and north of the Ohio River, and the money collected will go to the treasury. This way, the states would have to pay less tax.
He refused the treaties to be signed and met with the Governor of Indiana William Henry Harrison. (Tindall and Brown, Page 253) Later on, "Tecumseh himself fled to British protection in Canada." (Tindall and Brown, Page 254) I do not believe the British aimed to aid the Indians, they wanted assistance in taking back lands that were valuable to them, one of which was a great place for fur trade, being "profitable fur trade in the Great Lakes region..." (Tindall and Brown, Page 253) Was this war important?
Although tragic, Canada 's war effort won a separate signature on the Peace Treaty. This gave Canada the constantly wanted national status, it gave to Canadians nationhood. Although proud of their autonomy, Canada 's economic situation was terrible. Before the war, Canada 's debt was already rising, because of the loss in wheat crops and the loss of jobs due to the railway.
In my opinion the one event that had the most significant role in the American Revolution was when the British made the Coercive/ Intolerable Acts. When the British made these acts, they cut off ports and a colony, and made a number of acts to punish the colonies. These acts made the colonist start an uprising against the British. These uprises lead to the colonist going against the British and starting the American Revolution.
The Stamp Act was created and enforced upon the colonies by the British Parliament on March 22, 1765. After fighting in the North America's alongside the Colonists and in various other locations globally, the British racked up a healthy sum of debt, around 177 million pounds (Tax history Project): which roughly converts to 268,659,450 dollars in modern day currency. In an effort to pay off such debt, the British parliament issued various acts upon the colonists which taxed them for common goods: on specifically being the stamp act. Outraged by its coverage of over all paper good including stamps, legal documents, newsprint, and even playing cards and dice (history.org), the colonists proceeded to protest on belief of the act being unconstitutional(history.com
