Furthermore, Canada "has the 2nd highest peacekeeping fatality with 114 fatalities," additionally proving Canada takes peacekeeping very seriously. Finally, the world recognizes Canadian as peacekeepers as in 1988 the "Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to UN peacekeepers, [and] 80,000 Canadian military personnel shared in the honor." Therefore, peacekeeping plays a major role in Canada 's national identity, however, another distinct identity is how the world sees
Introduction: When we think about culture, we automatically associate it with all of the stereotypes that are known. However, many of us never actually take the effort to find out the true culture of a place, which is why when we go to other countries we are clueless as to the culture and its practices. I believe that it is important to learn about the culture and any relevant information about a country before going there, which is why I have decided to look into the culture of the country Canada and its social practices. The country of Canada is in the continent of North America and it is well known for the friendly culture and open minded citizens. A general description of the culture: Previously, the culture of Canada throughout the country was heavily influenced by the British and the French and their own indigenous people [Loue, S; Sajatovic, M; 2011].
Huxley's ideas that our society is numbed by things that we love and that everyone is almost happy to be somewhat oppressed is almost too real. It is pretty easy to see and make connections after evaluating our society that we live in. I agree with Neil Postmans assertions claiming that Brave New World is most relevant to our society. One of Postman’s claims that i related to is “people will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think.” this is expressed in the book by the simple quote “community, identity, stability”(1). It relates to Postman’s assertion because the “identity” means that people need to accept who they are in order to keep society functioning properly.
Murphy's significance can be seen as the result of her actions developed Canada into a well respected and enhanced country due to the influence she had on the 1930, Senator Cairine Wilson, would not have been selected as a Senator, if Emily Murphy did not persevere during the Person's Case. Due to Emily Murphy and her actions, Cairine Wilson had an massive impact on Canada as she dealt with prominent problems within society. Cairine Wilson's dealings improved the country and began to solve troubles within the public. Canada emerged as a country being known as just and fair since Cairine Wilson petitioned the problems she thought were outstanding. All of Cairine Wilson's work could not have been possible if Emily Murphy did not take that first stand to sway her to do the spectacular things she did for Canada.
But, Canadians speak mainly to languages, French and English. Another difference between the two is about 321 million people live in America and 35,011,542 people live in Canada. They both have different cash crops, the US is being corn and Canada 's being wheat rye and barley. Canada actually has a bigger square mileage at 3,854,082 mi.squared and the
4. DISCUSSION On top of all the system mentioned, latest Canada government system is the one that draw our attention the most. Politically Canada is one of the most respected nations in the world. It has a mature and stable system of democracy that recognises the rights of minorities in the nation and has a vibrant civil society, while externally it uses its diplomatic power, in contrast to the economic and military power of its neighbour, to influence constructively international relations and agreements. The newly appointed Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau has appointed 15 men and 15 women, which resemble a perfect gender balance in his cabinet.
Miss Havisham gets her revenge on men but also gets forgiven for it. Joe and Miss Havisham’s lives show us that success is only a matter of how you live your life. Miss Havisham is one of the most successful people in the book because she completes both of her main goals in her lifetime;
Multiculturalism is popular in many countries as it can be used as a strategy to fight inequalities. Supporters of multiculturalism claim that it removes social and cultural barriers for immigrants and minority groups, making them feel more welcome in Canadian society, promoting a stronger sense of belonging and pride in Canada (Kymlicka, 2010, p. 7). Therefore, multiculturalism is useful as it assists in the integration of immigrants and minorities. On the other hand, critics argues that multiculturalism accentuates the differences between groups rather than their shared rights or identities as the nation’s citizens as it promotes “ghettoization and balkanization” (Kymlicka, 2010, p. 7), thereby encouraging members of ethnic groups to look
As well, on page 12 of the guide, it states that “Many ethnic and religious groups live and work in peace as proud Canadians” (Citizenship and Immigration Canada, 2012, p.12). This then become essential to any possible citizens because it is a demonstration of Canada’s acceptance, which is comforting for newcomers planning on becoming a Canadian citizen – they will not feel shunned or a loss of culture when becoming a Canadian citizen. As stated by MacPherson (2007), in The Value of Multiculturalism, “Multiculturalism may be the antidote for the inappropriate and destructive behavior…” This then makes Canada appear to be a safe and secure country that is free from
Education offers young adults the opportunity to develop individually, to build and acquire new information, and ultimately to evolve into the person one aspires to become. Education is an important institution that shapes society, and establishes knowledgeable citizens at a young age. Under the Canadian constitution, education is a provincial responsibility. This means there are certain differences between the education systems in each province and territory. However, even with these differences, education is important to Canadians, and the standards across the country are relatively high.
Newfoundland made the right decision in joining Canada in 1949 because in return they were given the promise of prosperity and security due to family allowance, higher standards of living and relief of debt. When Newfoundland joined Confederation, it was by far the the poorest province. Billions of dollars of equalization payments later and investments into the province by the Federal Government, now means Newfoundland is richer than the average Canadian province and has not qualified for equalization payments since 2008. The first reason why Newfoundland made the right decision in joining Canadian Confederation was because Canada relieved Newfoundland of the financial debt burdening it. Newfoundland had a period
Canadians, used to seeing leadership of technology in the hands of the United States and Britain, were suddenly aware that they had something that looked like the best in the world. 15:15 This quote stood out to me during the documentary, because of Canada 's recognition of their countrys ' limitations. Canada, because of their size and economic restrictions, relies heavily on countries such as the United States. The United States provide opportunity and finacial aid to Canadians as a whole. For example, many of the people who worked on the plane in Canada have gone on to the United States to do great things.
This is really good because it shows that we have a good healthcare system, and the population in Canada is more likely to increase than decrease. Canada compared to Nigeria is very high in life expectancy. Nigeria 's life expectancy is 54/52 years which means that people in Nigeria aren 't expected to live for long. Canada is also high in primary school enrollment, which is 100%/99%. This is really high compared to pakistan 's primary school enrollment, which is
Based on the research regarding the Canadian experience towards ideal politicians, they expect their leaders to be pragmatic political fixers and problem solvers (Azzi, 2013). In general, Canadian politics is considered to be quiet, moderate, and progressive. At the appropriate time, Justin Trudeau appeared with this image and won the hearts of Canadian. On his way to the prime minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau got positive public assessment in many opinion surveys. A poll data released in April 2013 by Abacus Data, found that 75 percent of respondents agreed that he was pleasant and only 21 percent have a negative impression of him (Abacus Data, 2012).
We see that the self interests of certain individuals without some control of the government is not beneficial to society. We also see the benefits of having a government which allows its citizens power to a certain extent. Unlike Egypt, Canada allows its citizens to have a say in the direction of the country and how they want to live their life. This has been proven to be successful. Citizens are given the opportunity to pursue their self-interests.
