In 1763, the British issued a Royal Proclamation. This proclamation established “an ‘Indian Country’ where aboriginal land was protected from encroachment. The land had to be voluntarily ceded to the Crown before non- aboriginal settlers could occupy it.” Stony Point Reserve, located near Lake Huron, Ontario was protected under the Royal Proclamation.
In support of the notion that the Supreme Court of Canada erred in upholding the Order-in-Council which permitted the forcible removal of “Japanese Canadian” from Canada, according to the Order in Council the word “deportation” means the “removal, pursuant to the authority of this Order (7355), of any person from any place in Canada”. This is a process of being sent away from a particular country based on legal reasons. But in this case, the Japanese were not foreigners in Canada but rather they were citizens before Canada invoked the War Measure Act. The deportation of the Japanese Canadians in 1945 was as a result of the World War II, which led to the suspicion by the Canadian government that the Japanese race was an ally with the German government. On the 15th of December 1945, Orders were made based on the War Measures act to remove all native Japanese and any other persons that is related to the Japanese race from Canada.
Throughout Canadian history, Canada had always been socially divided. Between the English speaking majority and the French speaking majority. One of Trudeau’s main objective was to erase this separation between these two parties. Firstly, in order to ease tension between the French speaking majority, Trudeau placed a “Official Language Act” in 1969 . This was the first act that English and French the
North-West Uprising The North-West Uprising was a battle between the Canadian government and the people living in the North-West. The uprising was caused by a series of events. The government was slow in handing out land grants and treaties to the Métis, land was devoted to the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR), and the rights were not known to the Métis. Métis/Natives tried to solve matters out peacefully with John A. Macdonald.
On the 22nd of August, 1914 the Canadian government passed the war measures act, which was “a federal statute adopted by parliament in 1914”. The government did this to have more control over Canadians and their property. This was
There have been some reports that there were two people who are working in the government is kidnaped in January 1970. That were James Cross and Pierre Laborite. it is regarded as a subject of intense debate in the media and politics. Therefore, the powers of the War Measures Act have been used that mean allowed the suspension of traditional Canadian civil liberties. However, from this idea, I am not agreeing with Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.
Today, Canada is seen as a multicultural and peaceful nation that has evolved over the course of history. This great nation would never have been possible without the impact that former Prime Minister, Lester B. Pearson left on this country. His achievements and insights profoundly affected and shaped Canada’s nation. First, peacekeeping is an important part of Canada’s heritage and a reflection of its fundamental beliefs that Pearson implemented after dealing with world changing situations and winning a Nobel Prize. Also, his contributions as a liberal leader as well as the flaws and controversy with Diefenbaker did in fact define this country.
There were many events that led to the October crisis of 1970 in Quebec. There are differing opinions about the actions of Front de Liberation du Quebec (FLQ) with some in favor and some against them, but in my opinion any step that may put lives of civilians in danger and lead to hostage situation and anarchy should be stopped to protect innocent citizens of the country. in light of this the war measure act requested by the them premier of Quebec and supported by the then prime minister Trudeau was a necessary step in curbing terrorism and threat to human lives. October crisis of 1970 were triggered by the kidnapping of British trade commissioner, James cross from outside his office and that of minister of labor Pierre Laporte while playing
The main purpose of the act was to have the president and congress approach war efforts with “collective judgement,” yet the act itself seems to allow the president to bypass congress just as how presidents Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson, and Richard Nixon did in the Korean and Vietnam Wars. The act was supposed to correct the errors of such wars, but it really does not address the issue of powers between the executive and legislative branches effectively. In essence the president can declare war in the emergency when the United States is under attack, such as the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York and the Pentagon however, he is restricted from actually enacting war, meaning he can only say that there will be war, but he cannot start organizing and sending troops to hostile countries without the formal consent of congress. Therefore, the war powers act attempts to decrease the president’s power to enact war, but it violates the constitution and bypasses congressional authorization for war by permitting the president to send troops to hostile countries for 90
“Let us be French, let us be english, but most importantly let us be Canadian.” This is a quote by John A. Macdonald from about 150 years ago and he was the first Prime Minister of Canada and had a political career which spanned for almost half a century. He also set a legacy that keeps our country together and united. One of the major events that happened that I will discuss is responsible government because it was a big part of history, was important to the people and it was an executive or Cabinet that would be dependent on the support of an elected assembly. But even before responsible government was created there was a lot of conflict between the British and the French which led to a few important events.
During WWI, the American government issued the Espionage and Sedition Acts in 1917. These limited the power of the people and were very controversial. Similarly, the Executive Order 9066 that Roosevelt issued in 1942 proclaimed military zones that took away rights. In contrast, the
To call this era of drastic change the ‘Quiet Revolution’ is a vivid, and yet, paradoxical description. The Quiet Revolution was a time of intense socio-political and socio-cultural change in Quebec, which extended beyond Quebec’s borders because of its influence on contemporary Canadian politics. As a result of the effects of the changes that occurred during this Quiet Revolution, most Quebec provincial governments since the early 1960s have maintained political and social orientations based on the core concepts developed and implemented during the Quiet Revolution. As such, there is no doubt that the Quiet Revolution had a significant impact in Canadian History. This impact can be characterized by the prelude to the Quiet Revolution; the demographic evolution of Quebec; the social educational reforms that were put in place; the economic reforms and their impact; the rise of nationalism; and finally, the cultural changes that occurred.
Canada is now known to be a diverse, multicultural, bilingual and inclusive nation largely as a result of his work. Pierre Elliott Trudeau also believed in an equal Canada for all, he is primarily the one to introduce rights and freedoms to the citizens of Canada. While some view Pierre Trudeau as impulsive, for enforcing the War Measures Act, Trudeau enacted this for the protection of Canadian citizens against radical extremist and his actions were more rational than impulsive for the situation that had suddenly occurred. Pierre Trudeau was one of Canada’s greatest Prime Minister’s, who’s impact fundamentally changed the course of the nation by introducing multiculturalism, for introducing the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and for paradoxically upholding democracy by strong action during the October Crisis.
Toronto — On June 28th 1919 WW1 officially concluded after the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, however as a result of the war, Canada has suffered great losses, many that will change the fate of the nation. World War 1, a war that started in 1914 after the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, ended on November 11, 1918, and all the nations involved had agreed to terms of peace and formally stopped fighting. On June 28, 1919, Germany and the Allied Forces (Britain, France, Italy, and Russia) came together to sign the Treaty of Versailles and formally concluded the Great War.
In the Constitution of the United States entrench a requirement and action to have a profession, which ensure the protection and safety of the Nation and State, “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, …, provide for the common defence” .

Finally, set high moral standards that reflect the values of society.
