Relations between the Indigenous People of Canada and first settlers have been a tumultuous and often dark chapter of Canada’s geography. The movie Avatar is a fair comparison to the Indigenous people and first settlers of Canada because of the greed for resources, attempts at assimilation and shared Aboriginal culture. The first settlers of Canada were notorious for their greed of resources, much that belonged to the Indigenous people. In order to access the economic base, the Europeans pushed out the Indigenous from their homes into reserves. As well, mankind attempted to push out the Na’vi to access the land and precious minerals in the movie Avatar.

The 1960’s and 70’s were a time of political turmoil and unrest in Canadian history. The October of 1970 in particular, is a period remembered for its violence and hate. The kidnapping of two Canadian politicians by the Front de Libération du Québec (FLQ), a terrorist group, changed Canadian society forever.

In Canada, the fur trade was of significance due to the advanced technology brought by the Europeans to the natives. They brought goods such as axes, wool, tobacco pipes, flintlock muskets, and an assortment of knives in exchange for furs. The aboriginals began to utilize the European goods for the reason that the technology was incomparable to their own. The aboriginals now applied European technology toward hunting and apparel, which allowed them to improve their efficiency and comfort. There were also negative impacts of the fur trade on the aboriginals way of life. The introduction of

The United States is a sovereign nation, however, the town of Primrose is not. A sovereign nation is a nation with its own constitution. Because the United States is sovereign, they are independent from other nations and have the freedom to establish a government. Cities and towns are not sovereign which means that the United States federal government governs and supports the town, the town itself does not have its own government. Primrose should remain not sovereign because the government ensures national security, maintains order, and resolves conflicts for them. We are too small to do all of the normal functions that a regular government does.
The Charter is the center to which all Canadian rights circle around. It is what allows Canadians to freely express themselves. The Charter protects the rights and freedoms of every single individual in Canada. However, the Charter is especially large and covers many topics and so it tends to conflict itself.

Evidence to support is“Like all continents, Antarctica has a wide variety of resources. Although most of the continent is covered in sheets of ice, the ground below the ice contains large amounts of useful minerals such as coal, iron, and copper, and precious metals such as gold and platinum. Who knows what other materials are yet to be discovered?”.This evidence is from “Article two Paragraph two”This explains that Antarctica has a lot of resources that be beneficial to our race. Therefor with this being said the author would like for the treaty to be disassembled so people have access to the beautiful land and its Resources. Based on this evidence I can infer that if the The treaty was disassembled the discoveries made in Antarctica would more than likely assists scientists in finding new ways to preserve Antarctica’s Ice while still having people explore the continent. Another piece of evidence that I can use to support my argument is “In addition, the seas around the continent teem with useful and valuable ocean life, including fsh, crab, whales, and seals. Our planet has a limited supply of natural resources, so humans need to take advantage of all possible sources.”This is from Article 2 paragraph 3. This is showing that the natural resources or resources in Antarctica could somehow be beneficial to our race in future years to come. I can
