The JCPC’s ruling in Board of Commerce, solidified the changing interpretation of Russell v. The Queen. In Board of Commerce, the federal government argued that although wartime had passed with the end of World War One in 1918, they needed to expand their powers and regulate financial markets.

In 1921, the JCPC examined this case with the federal government claiming emergency to avoid price gouging and monopolies.

The 1960 Bill of Rights, by Prime Minister John Diefenbaker, was the previous attempt at introducing basic freedoms and protecting human rights to Canadians. Though the Bill of Rights had federal authority, it was not part of the Constitution and did not apply to provincial legislation. Trudeau’s plan was to include the Charter of Rights and Freedoms into the Constitution in order to make it virtually unchangeable by future governments. The Charter would give the Supreme Court ultimate authority over interpreting the Constitution and its amendments. This was a concern for the provinces as it was another way they felt a loss of control.

The Pacific Northwest is a geographical region in the northwestern United states that consists of the states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. The region is known for its technology, environment, and culture diversity. When Europeans and white Americans discovered the Northwest, they made claims over the land and succeeded in claiming the Northwest from the British and the Spanish. The arrival of the British led to major changes in the Northwest such as the fur trade and to relationships with the Native Americans through marriages. The arrival of the Americans in the mid-1800s led to changes in the environment such as farming, logging, and fishing.
Canada has a very rich history, despite being a younger country than most. This history constitutes many different methods, good or bad, that Canadians have tried in order to develop a significant national identity. For instance, Canada played an important role in both of the World Wars in attempts to establish a distinct national identity on the global stage. After World War Two, Canada joined the United Nations and began performing peacekeeping missions to provide aid to countries, thus creating a new facet to the Canadian national identity.
