The U.S. culture is very similar to Canadians as we are exposed to it all the time in media sources. The events in American history have also affected Canada from a political perspective, which lead to the Democracy that is present today. Another way the U.S. has affected Canada is from a military perspective because Americans are quick to jump to war and Canada has had to help control them which lead to them being peacekeepers. The United States helped mold the Canadian identity by being both a threat and support to the nation; this will continue into the 21st century but Canada will keep it’s unique identity. A country 's culture can be seen as interchangeable with identity; in Canada there is evidence of American culture everywhere.
The canadian government wanted to create a big country because they thought that if they create a country with a lot of people they thought that they would be a powerful and a strong nation. Canadian government started the whole idea because they wanted to to create peace with other nations because they thought that if other nations would get weapons and other utilities the fighting for the territory would happen again.
Reflection I chose this topic for my historical investigation as I believe the topic of the Cold War is still significant and relevant today. It still has relevance to today’s society because it has drastically shaped civilization. The Cold War can explain the current instability in many of the world’s hotspots and is the origin of major institutions such as NATO which are still influential. North Korea is proof that segregation between communism and capitalism is not over and shows that the tension still remains prominent even though the Cold War ended almost 3 decades ago. The nuclear arms race was central to the Cold War and I believe that it is still significant because counties continue spending enormous amounts of money on nuclear weapon development and have disagreements over nuclear weapon testing.
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. As a result, the government passed legislation to control distribution and sale. This legislation greatly impacted Canadian citizens economically and regulated numerous markets. In 1921, the JCPC examined this case with the federal government claiming emergency to avoid price gouging and monopolies.
Another very important advantage of the US defense industry is that it is based on an extremely high level of military R & D, which allows continuously improve and create new weapons system, at the same time upgrading the technological base for their production. Another advantage of the defense industry is that private military industrial corporations managed independently, but under strict control by the state, quickly and efficiently to restructure the industry.

The defence partnership provides both countries with greater security than could be achieved individually. The U.S. and Canada show commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) they have a principle known as “collective defense” where if one country is attacked, it is considered an attack on all the allied countries. After the 9/11 attacks, Canada became part of the war, being allied with the U.S. Canada supported them. Canada’s culture has been immensely affected by American influence, Americanization has happened throughout Canada with the spread of American brands such as Walmart, Coca-Cola, and Apple, that have affected canadian lifestyles and are used by canadians daily. The spread of American brands changes the economy along with the culture.
Thesis: There was a myriad of impacts on Canada during and after World War One, most seen in politics. This was because the military, economic, and social factors were dependent on political. Military: At the start of the war, Canada 's military failed. More successes later in the war led to a rise in nationalism. The most prominent failure, though not the first battle, was the Battle of Passchendaele.

The Prime Minister, the Senate, the House of Commons—these are people who we Canadian citizens depend on to make educated and reasonable decisions for the future of Canada. Being in such positions of power, such politicians must think on behalf of all Canadians; we trust them not to abuse their authority for selfish personal desires. However, this has not always been the case throughout history. World War I required militaries to appoint many individuals to take power in order to face the sudden state of total war; since these decisions were made rashly, numerous officers proved to be egocentric individuals who abused power for their own desires. Through the use of irony, both Remarque’s All Quiet on the Western Front and Kubrick’s Paths of
During this time Manifest Destiny was commonly referred to as Continentalism although the United States looked to expand west rather north into Canada. During the 1840’s the United States found itself in conflict with the British and the Mexicans over occupation of the Oregon and Texas territories, respectively. The conflict with the British would end peacefully, with a divide of the Oregon territory along the forty-ninth parralel. This was beneficial to the United States who already knew they were going to war with Mexico over their annexation of the Texas territory. During this war with Mexico the United States would see a great deal of success which would lead to many Americans, primarily politicians, promoting the idea of annexing all of Mexico rather than just the portion known as Texas.
The legacy of Canada’s contributions to the First World War was small but significant. Throughout Canada’s years as a powerful nation, they acquired the harsh realities of war and why it is important to separate themselves from Britain and start gaining independence and nationhood. The First World War was truly the period where many nations fought against one another leading to the immensity of destruction. Although at the end of the war, Canada was no longer seen merely as the colony of Britain , but a nation with full independence that had been shaped into a strong and powerful country it has become today. The Great War commences on July 1914, it is assumed tacitly that Canada would also join the war as Britain 's ally and subordinate.
• Sense of Mission: The Treaty of Versailles was a sense of mission or a goal that Wilson had for America by “making the world safe for democracy.” He had a strong desire to strengthen and improve other countries and in essence, the world. In his opinion, the great blessings that America enjoyed were something that every country should experience. Therefore he fought for the ratification of the Treaty as it would support his belief, with one of his strategies being the League of Nations. This was a step away from isolation and neutrality and America would become more involved in the affairs of other
Shortly after Canada East and West united, Nova Scotia joined Canada because a railroad was promised to the new province. Joining Canada helped them with commerce and also provided protection against Fenian attacks. New Brunswick joined shortly after Nova Scotia. The new province joined Canada because they thought that the powerful United States would want to expand more towards the north. The people of New Brunswick thought that
