The impact of WW2 played a major role in helping Canada become a more strong, united nation, with equality, respect, and human rights. To begin with, before WWII there was lots of discrimination shown towards minority groups and many other cultures in Canada and because of this Canada created some inhumane mistakes. Canada allowed internment, allowed residential schools, and violation of human rights. When the Holocaust started it was like an eye opener for Canadians because they started to experience what the Holocaust underwent. This made Canadians realize that what they had done was wrong.

Canadian individual identity is questioned often because it is so diverse and means something different to each person in Canada. Although there is not a set identity there are many values and beliefs that are owned by all Canadians. To find out what Canadians identity is, one has to take into account what has affected it. The United States is the biggest influence on Canadian identity. The U.S. culture is very similar to Canadians as we are exposed to it all the time in media sources.
In the year 1837, a radical movement in the British colony of Lower Canada participated in an armed rebellion to seek by force what they had failed to secure by legal political action. The principle objective towards which the uprising was directed had been given various names by historians such as political freedom, democracy and representative government. The rebels took arms in an effort to end the appointed minority's domination of the colony's governing institutions and to establish a responsible government. The Lower Canadian Rebellion was prosecuted on the advancement of liberty and republicanism. Within the North American context, these broad tenets articulated the importance of a sovereign, educated and virtuous citizenry as well as the standards of an effective government constitutionally constrained in its authority.
I believe that Canada did become more independent in the 1920 's. Canada 's major role in WWI had earned the nation respect worldwide. Although Canada had become a nation over half a century before, it had not had real chance to prove itself as a nation. Post-WWI, it was no longer viewed as a British colony, the international political scene realizing that Canada had “come of age,” and was a significant force. Reliance on Britain as a political guide also diminished, and Canada began acting independently in international politics. An example of the increasing spirit of independence from Britain is Canada 's part in the Chanak Incident of 1922.
After reading the chapters and articles on reciprocity I was really intrigued by the idea of reciprocity. I have been to Africa many times and I was reminded a lot of the Senegalese people when reading the articles. Many people in America do not really understand how much of what they get is so good when compared to other countries. We live in a place where we think we are the best and deserve everything and expect everything to get handed to us. An example of Generalized reciprocity in America are the farmers of our world.
During the process of ratifying the constitution, the federalists and anti-federalists had major disagreements on what views and ideas should be presented. Because of all of the disagreements, the two groups were eventually divided and each held their own views on what the constitution should carry. The federalists were a group of led by Alexander Hamilton and were the first political party of the United States. Most of the federalist lived in urban areas.
This ideology allows our nation to celebrate, express and promote the different spectrums of diversity throughout the land, and this includes working to right past wrong. For instance, the people of Canada have acknowledged the immorality of its choices regarding Indigenous peoples, and are now working their way to reconciliation for the past failures. Before Europeans arrived in North America, Indigenous people were able to satisfy the living requirements through the resources of the natural environment (First Nations in Canada).These people educated their youth in a complex and traditional matter such as participation in cultural and spiritual rituals, group socialization and oral teachings. These techniques provide children the beliefs,
Both nationalism and sectionalism emerged after the War of 1812. Nationalism grew in the United States because of the victory at New Orleans. Americans were proud to be called Americans. America might have seemed like they were united; however, they were divided also by a growing belief of sectionalism. Sectionalism spread like a disease, affecting the minds of Americans.
The indigenous people have a long and proud history, including the rich cultural and spiritual traditions. However, many of these traditions have been changed or even disappeared after the arrival of the European settlers. Forced introduction of European culture and values, Aboriginal community, indigenous land being deprived, and the imposition of a period of governance outside the pattern of the beginning of a cycle of social, physical and spiritual destruction. You can see the effects of today. Some of the effects include poverty, poor health, and drug abuse.
At its foundational core Sir John A MacDonald’s National Policy, was created to assist and continue the growth of the still developing nation of Canada. Following the purchase of Rupert’s Land from the Hudson Bay Company in 1870, the federal government was tasked with vast fertile lands to defend from American encroachment, and in 1878 the conservative government of Sir John A. MacDonald brought to legislation a new National Policy. Which would remain in effect until the 1930’s. Now. close to a century later we can determine that MacDonald’s National Policy, while originally bringing our Nation together.
