Robert Bone’s The Regional Geography of Canada versus, John Warkentin’s A Regional Geography of Canada: Life, Land, Space In both Bone’s The Regional Geography of Canada, and Warkentin’s A Regional Geography of Canada: Life, Land, Space the methods used to look at the province of British Columbia are different. Both authors take different standing on their views of regional geography as a whole, as well as the overall view of BC as a province. Both chapters identify the attributes of British Columbia, explain their opinions as to what they feel make up the identity of BC, and what makes it a homeland. Bone and Warkentin take different approaches to the explanation of the province and have different strengths and weaknesses in their approaches.
“I’m talking about Canada as a state of mind, as the space you inhabit not just with your body but with your head. It’s that kind of space in which we find ourselves lost” (Atwood, 18). This statement said by Margaret Atwood is definitely the best way to bring attention to the use of Canadian Literature in classrooms across Ontario. While good writers exist in all cultures, Ontario students should be putting more focus toward Canadian writers. For these students, they need to become more familiar with our own literature, despite being surrounded by other cultures.

In the essay “Newfoundlandese, If You Please,” Diane Mooney argues Newfoundland is made up of many different dialects dependent on what region you are in. She backs up her claims by sharing her observations and experiences from her travels throughout the province. In the essay printed by Pearson, Toronto Mooney believes that the different dialects are because of the various nationalities of the early settlers.

Aboriginal peoples in Canada, or Aboriginal Canadians, are the indigenous peoples within the boundaries of present-day Canada. They comprise the First Nations, Inuit and Métis.  The descriptors "Indian" and "Eskimo" have somewhat fallen into disuse in Canada and are sometimes considered pejorative.  Old Crow Flats and Bluefish Caves are some of the earliest known sites of human habitation in Canada. The Paleo-Indian Clovis, Plano and Pre-Dorset cultures pre-date current indigenous peoples of the Americas.
Allan Greer a historian specializing in the time era of 1450-1800 in North America, reviews the Upper and Lower rebellions of Canada. He focuses on research that was founded after 1960 to establish his argument. Greer argues that the Upper Canada rebellion was a direct result of the Lower rebellion. Further, Greer mentions that the St Thomas Liberal editorial published a statement,“‘to hold meetings and to express body and above board their determination to rise or fall with their brethren in Lower Canada,’” coinciding with Greers argument that the Lower rebellion happened before the Upper rebellion because St Thomas at the time was part of Upper Canada. In addition, the contrast between the two rebellions reveals that Upper Canada had not

It is very important to be aware of different country’s cultures and walks of life. Although Canada is in some ways very similar to the United States of America there are some major differences that will be examined in the proceeding paragraphs.
Over the past few decades, there has been many distinct perspectives and conflicts surrounding the historical context between the Indigenous peoples in Canada and the Canadian Government. In source one, the author P.J Anderson is trying to convey that the absolute goal of the Indian Residential School system in Canada has been to assimilate the Indian nation and provide them with guidance to “ forget their Indian habits”, and become educated of the “ arts of civilized life”, in order to help them integrate into society and “become one” with their “White brethren”. It is clearly evident throughout the source that the author is supportive of the Indian residential school system and strongly believes that the Indian residential School System
