Tommy Douglas would have been seen as a great leader in the Behavioural Era due to his ability to identify the need for change and the betterment of society; however, he would have not been seen as a great leader in the Personality Era due to him alienating the Saskatchewan doctors in his healthcare implementation. Sir George Arthur French would have been seen as a great leader in the Influence Era by what he was able to achieve in his position of power and the appreciation of the men who served under him; however, he would have not been seen as a great leader in the Situational Era because he resigned because of factors he could not
He contributed to the drafting and completion of the 72 Resolutions, a set of proposals made at the Quebec Conference in 1864. Unfortunately, he lost his seat in the Assembly alongside of many supporters of Confederation that were driven out of the office in 1865 election. He returned to the Assembly during the 1866 by-election. His 1866’s campaign was very imprecise, promoting New Brunswickers to be for and against Confederation. However, once he entered the office, he became the key figure for a creation of a new nation.
Canada’s life in 1920’s and 30’s were bad and good.During those times lot’s of great things happened, but there were also really bad things that happened because of the great depression.Canada wasn 't having only wonderful things that happen during the old days.Everything and everyone in this world has their ups and downs. This essay will be about why the 1920s was great and why the 1930’s was bad. First reason why 1920s was called the boom times was During that time everyone one had jobs.Both men and women had jobs.Lot’s of women worked as teachers,nurses and more.Men worked as farmers,lawyers,and bankers.Many new things were invented,like Henry Ford car and radios.It helped them with their jobs and because of the new products people had great paying jobs.An important was that Unions were also helping out the worker and leading them. “ recognition of the auto workers’ union as the legitimate representative of those workers.”(Gordon).That’s when the great depression came in,people became poor and stopped buying the new products: “Labor Department reported 1,499,000 jobless persons,or 3.1 percent of all employables.”(Holley).Many workers lost their jobs.The stock market also crashed so that made it worse.
He wanted to remain as Prime Minister of Canada so badly he even took advantage of his “dear friend” the Governor General of Canada, which would begin the King Byng affair. The elected Governor General himself wasn’t much of a politician more a soldier than anything else, having been the First World War commandeer and the revered leader of the great victory at Vimy Ridge in April 1917. He even admits this himself saying so in this quote, “the Governor General told King that he was not a constitutional expert and he expected things to be more than a little difficult.” His wife even comments on how politically incapable both of them were saying to Mackenzie King, “Lord Byng is very good at keeping everything secret, that having been in military life, they were not into politics.” Mackenzie King took advantage of this and exercised his higher level of knowledge in this particular area on an unsuspecting Julian. Having told the Governor General of his decision to stay in power, the Governor General told Mackenzie king that he would not grant dissolution and another election, until Meighen had a chance at forming government. Unfortunately not having the knowledge to know he should have written this in ink to legally bind Mackenzie King to hearing this promise.
Men aged 20-45 were forced to leave their families, join the war and fight for Britain. The English wanted French-Canadians to join, because they felt that Quebec had not pulled their own weight. Quebec refused to join which lead to riots in Montreal, the government needed help from the
The Nazi Party was revered and feared because they were able to exploit people’s fears. The Nazi party existed before the rise of Hitler, but they were a small and virtually unnoticeable party. The entire world was hit by an economic depression in the early 1930s and Germany was not immune. The people of the country were angry and impatient and feared that their parliament was too weak to rectify the economic situation. The Nazi party saw this opportunity and met their community with an alternative, strong leadership.
Nixon is widely recognized for his successful détente foreign policy that improved U.S. relations with Russia and China. Despite his achievements, his true motives and methods of achieving success were questionable and harmful. His agenda for Vietnam was hidden from the public, as was his Southern Strategy. He was not truly invested in environmental reform, and proved to be a truly contradictory president. Scholars agree that his public actions and private ideas often opposed each other (“Impact and Legacy”).
Both were thrust into office in a period of economic collapse, and both had to clean up the mess the previous presidents had left. Because of these situations, “both had to develop strong economic policies to get the economy back on track.”(6) Reagan’s plan, Reagonomics, and Roosevelt’s plan, the New Deal, both helped to not only rescue the country from the failing economy but also to change it. Both presidents spent more money on military and “ushered in an era of social change and government responsibility that was a great departure from previous administrations.”(6) These two presidents knew what to do to rebuild the economy and did it. They both created legacies for themselves that still last today. So despite a few differences in the way they lived their lives, Ronald Reagan and Franklin Delano Roosevelt were both incredibly similar in tactics and situations.
Without Thomas Paine’s writings America may have never been able to start or finish their fight for freedom; Thomas Paine was an inspiration to many. Thomas Paine was a well educated man, he completed school in England and became a tax collector; a job he was fired from on two separate occasions. In fact his experience as a working man led to Paine’s first seditious writings, a paper written on behalf of the working men, fighting for better conditions and fair pay. Because Paine was so adamant on several topics and had such controversial beliefs, he became known to many households by the end of the eighteenth century. When Paine immigrated to the American colonies he staunchly support the continental army; he wrote several pieces supporting the fight for independence, one of the most popular being his pamphlet, Common Sense.
By forcing them to return to Europe, they ultimately forced the Jews to face impending doom. All because they didn’t fit the description of what a “Canadian” looked or acted like. Nonetheless, over time these radical and racist policies decreased and in 1967 and a points system was introduced. This allowed the elimination of racial discrimination and was more focused towards the economic interest of Canada. One reference states, Canada’s point system was in the 1967 Immigration Act which gave people with higher education or certain skills a better chance into getting into Canada… This made immigration for skilled workers easier and encouraged them to come to Canada from anyplace in the world.
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. After the war ended, Canada 's economy did not get better.
Immediately following WWII, the need for labour was relatively indiscriminate; skilled and unskilled young men were recruited to remedy the labour shortage (Kelly & Trebilcock, 2010, p.318; Green & Green, 2004, p.114; Walsh, 2003, p.794). As Green & Green (2014) state, immigration was essential a way of “filling [the] skill gaps” (p.114) that existed in Canadian society at the time. However, as the labour ‘crisis’ waned in the 1950s, there became a greater emphasis on skilled labour in particular (Green & Green, 2004, p.114; Kelly & Trebilcock, 2010, p.318). One manifestation of this economic focus in Canada’s immigration policies was the creation of a “contract labour scheme” (Kelly & Trebilcock, 2010, p.340) in the late 1940s; a program similar to the modern Temporary Foreign Worker Program (Kelly & Trebilcock, 2010, p.340). Immigrants who may have been previously viewed as undesirable (i.e.
He had many achievements which helped the country and the future of Canada. Many people say that George Brown wasn’t a good politician and that he wasn’t like a politician at all. I highly disagree with these people due to the fact that he put a lot of effort into the confederation and he was brilliant at debates. Overall, I think that George Brown was an amazing politician and helped to create the country Canada is
This strategy of dealing with an economic depression was adopted by future presidents, until it no longer worked, it was at that point that legislation was passed in order to save the country. The Panic of 1819, spread worry amongst some that the national bank was a precarious system, and it would lead to the end of the national bank after the charter expired during Andrew Jackson’s administration. Despite this failure on Monroe’s part by allowing the situation to get out of hand, his two terms in office are more memorable due to his accomplishments as
Born in a period of rapid change for Canada and the territory surrounding it, he was the voice of the minority people during the resistance in Red River. He helped create a province that had rights that were best for his people and in doing so, solidified their future. He was a rebel and a madman, trying as always, to help the Métis during the North-West Rebellion even as his mental instability began to take hold of him. Until the day he was hanged so controversially, Louis Riel was a man of religion, of politics, and of belief for his culture. His actions influence Canada even today.
