Today, Canada is seen as a multicultural and peaceful nation that has evolved over the course of history. This great nation would never have been possible without the impact that former Prime Minister, Lester B. Pearson left on this country. His achievements and insights profoundly affected and shaped Canada’s nation.

Although she was born into a wealthy household, she did not have a particularly happy childhood. This experience allowed her to empathize better with the less fortunate, in addition to being woman.

The reason why the government established the camps was that the government of Bennett was afraid these unemployed men rioted. Therefore, the government built these camps for the single, unemployed and homeless Canadian males and it provided the job and house for them.
Macdonald Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald once remarked, "I had no boyhood," an understatement if there ever was one Indeed, John A. 's Dickensian childhood, filled with poverty, alcoholism, and the beating death of his five-year-old brother at the hands of a drunken baby-sitter (a friend of his father, Hugh's), set the stage for a political power grab that has seen no equal in Canadian history.
