Yet, few of the population knows of Canada’s transition to peacemaking, and how Canada aims to return to keeping peace instead creating it. Peacekeeping first transitioned to peacemaking after the Cold War. The change caused public opinion to drop, resulting in Canada declining missions, and contributing less to the UN’s peacekeeping efforts. The Canadian government became unhappy with what Canada's Peacekeeping had become, and decided to take on and complete missions in a manner unlike the way that they were completed for years prior, but in a way alike peacekeeping once was.
Having a similar subject means that these two stories are bound to be similar in one way or another, right? Of course, they do.

This is not technically a part of the poem but it is important to note this fact when analyzing “Whereas”. The author first shows her feelings toward the line of the apology about “the arrival of Europeans in North America opened a new chapter in the history of the Native Peoples” by recounting the time her daughter hurt herself after tripping outside (Soldier). Her daughter “braved a new behavior,” by laughing nervously as if she could not feel the pain of her bleeding knee (Soldier). People reading this poem can relate to instances where one might attempt to put up a front to the world instead of showing their true feelings.

Where the misdemeanour, and no matter how clear their own child’s guilt, parents ask immediately: Were you with Jasper Jones? (P.g 5, Jasper Jones) This quote demonstrates how the audience originally believed Jasper was nothing but an annoyance to the community. Due to the Vietnam War being such a violent and tragic period in time, this added to the overall ferocity of the setting of the novel as the war influenced the 1960’s immensely.
