The events in American history have also affected Canada from a political perspective, which lead to the Democracy that is present today. Another way the U.S. has affected Canada is from a military perspective because Americans are quick to jump to war and Canada has had to help control them which lead to them being peacekeepers. The United States helped mold the Canadian identity by being both a threat and support to the nation; this will continue into the 21st century but Canada will keep it’s unique identity. A country 's culture can be seen as interchangeable with identity; in Canada there is evidence of American culture everywhere.
In many countries, conflict between different groups of people is inevitable. In Canada, the divide between English-speaking and French-speaking regions has been a prominent political and cultural topic since the birth of the nation. The most well known of these conflicts goes to Quebec. The province has sprouted several movements and parties supporting the autonomy and independence of Quebec. One of those parties is the Bloc Quebecois.
In order to answer these questions, Stein structures his text by categorizing the anglo-community profound change in political consciousness through labelling three phases: a phase of self-confident majority group consciousness; a phase of majority-minority group image dissonance and defensiveness; a phase of minority group positive self-awareness and action. The first phase of self-confident majority group consciousness can be tracked back after the Conquest, when British officials established their economic and political power over the residents remaining in Quebec. Stein implies that the self-confident majority group consciousness of Quebec anglophones was denoted by a sense of their exceptional educational and cultural upbringings, their higher overall average incomes and their commanding positions in the economy of Quebec (Stein, 2012, p. 110). However, the second phase of majority-minority group image dissonance and defensiveness took place during the Quiet Revolution. Stein alludes that the first turning point in transforming anglophones attitudes came with the enactment of Bill 22, which made French the only
Were Canada Warriors or Peacemakers? Were Canada warriors or peacemakers after the war? This has been a question that has been widely debated by various people and most of them have come to the conclusion that Canada are peacemakers. This is true because in most of the post-wars conflicts Canada has participated in, they have taken a peacekeeping roles; these wars being The Suez Crisis; where Canada resolved the crisis and prevented World War 3, The Bosnian War, where Canada protected the civilians and also helped resolve the conflicts and finally the Syrian-ISIS Conflict, where Canada started off as warriors but later on, changed to peacekeepers.
The Senate in Canada should be abolished Introduction: Canada senate is a part of legislation institution in Canada, which represents the interests of upper class people.

When learning about a new aspect in life, no matter what it was, logic suggests that we should refer to the main resources to impart from. Morrisseau played a great role in being one of the recent resources on the nature of the Aboriginal Canadian Tribe – the Ojibwa – that people refer to, to know more about the indigenous culture that lived in the Anishnaabe region. This had been evidenced by the fact that his paintings were not hung in museums for their artistic value, but rather for their ethnographic worth. Morrisseau documented the culture from many perspectives and aspects thoroughly, which is illustrated on actions of different authorities (museums and schools) to refer back to his work. He was the only artist for the "first solo first solo exhibit of an Aboriginal person 's art in the history of the National Gallery of Canada" .
Suburban Culture Crisis Meegan Lim Magazines, Acrylic, Matte Gel on Wood Panel Walk through a suburb. What do you think lies behind the door of each cookie-cutter home? What lies is culture, shaping a family with anything from language to religion. Culture ultimately shapes the way you live your life, and the perspective you view the world from. Growing up in Canada, more specifically the suburbs of Brampton, I have struggled to maintain elements from my Malaysian-Chinese background, and incorporate them with the surrounding Canadian culture.
To write about the own life, is a popular topic in a wide range of media in Germany as well in Canada. For instance, the scholar Julia Rank uses the term “life-writing” to describe a broad genre in a Canadian context, including all types of factual literature which record life-stories as memoirs, diaries, letters. According to her, memoir becomes popular in Canadian literature in the late 1970s. She is even speaking of a “boom” in the context of biography. It is obvious that the increasing interest in “life writing” is related to an uncertainty about the own identity in the modern and post-modern age.

Another proposal was to take all the reserve territory and create a single province. This would ultimately give Aboriginals the privilege of having a financial and economic unit, allow them to make negotiations with other provinces, to be able to sit at federal meetings, and to have primary control over their own resources. These three proposed forms of reform are feasible, and each one offers its own viable solution to go about successfully reforming the senate. Initiative should be taken by the provinces and the Canadian government to come up with a solution to the problems that the senate constantly faces. Without reform, the senate cannot possibly be a voice for regional interests and an accurate representation of Canadian society.
The purpose of this dissertation is to examine and explain the legal and ceremonial functions of the Canadian Governor General. As a matter of fact, since the creation of this title in 1867, the roles of the Governor General have evolved greatly over the years. Assigned the role by the Queen of England, this individual possesses many powers that contribute massively to the functioning of the country of Canada. First of all, it is important to understand that one of the ceremonial roles of the Canadian Governor General is to read the throne speech at the outset of every parliament session. This speech is given to individuals seated at the Parliament such as the Senators and the members of the House of Commons.
