In 1892 the Canadian Criminal Code was proclaimed for a country that was never thought of to become a nation with more than 35 million individuals and as developed as it is politically, socially, and economically. Our great nation has expanded into an ever changing and transitioning society that as it moves forward crimes are committed across the board by individuals of Canada’s various different races and cultures, where in which sentences are demanded to ensure Canada remains fair and just. The 1892 Criminal Code didn’t account for the developments, expansions, and transitions that Canada has endured over a hundred years, and Canada looks nothing like it did in 1892. Due to the changes, our provinces and territories have all developed substantially;
“It took only few hours for the tragic events to unfold on the evening in March of 1770, starting from a confrontation with the British regulars and ending with the death of five colonists. It took several years to get to the situation. The Boston Massacre is best understood in the context of several other key historic events.” “The heavy presence of British troops in Boston that lead to the fatal shooting was the direct results of the Townshend Acts passed by British Parliament to impose additional taxes on common products imported into the Colonies. These products among others included paper, glass and tea.”2 “On October 1, 1768 a group of British regulars arrived in Boston, MA to maintain order. The civilians reacted to the redcoats like
Ali Kazimi, who wrote a documentary on the Komagata Maru told the Toronto Star, “that Canada for the first 100 years of its existence had what was effectively a ‘white man's’ policy” ( Tharoor, Trudeau's apology). Canada’s law that was placed had 2 requirements a $200 fee and a travel rule, which had to be met if you were to travel to Canada. Knowing that Canada stopped Asians immigrants, trying to get into the country, the activists of Punjab and other parts of Asia, so they focused on trying to get back into Canada by the Komagata Maru.

In May 1873 the Parliament of Canada established the first central police force originating of 275 members, 150 of these members were sent to west Manitoba where the new police force acquired the name “North- West Mounted Police.” By 1855 the force had grown to 1000 men but in 1896 its future was threatened by the newly elected Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier who decided that he was to reduce the recently formed army. However in more recent years in spite of the 2nd world war police mounted horses became more and more common therefore in 1950 it was assumed a responsibility for provincial policing to create their own police forces. It has now been thought that there are indeed some welfare issues due to using horses for the mounted police. The most obvious and concerning issue being that the horses that are used cannot act and behave like a normal horse as they are either on duty or are stuck inside a stable instead of galloping around on green pastures, another issue with using these horses is that they can become injured when riots break out. However on the other hand these horses have allowed countries to control their rioting whilst the horses are treated with the best veterinary care and love from those that ride them.

For this, Currie was promoted to lieutenant-general in charge of the Canadian Corps. At forty-one, he was the youngest officer ever to grasp such a rank. The other Allied nations had already lost thousands of men in a sea of blood and mud at the Battle of Passchendaele. Currie was then called in to do what other Allied generals had not been able to, and although he objected and predicted that too many Canadian men would be lost in battle, he eventually agreed. He applied his usual strategies to the situation and once again relied on his engineers to build roads, drain ditches, and even build a railway, all while being fired upon by the Germans.
