The judicial branch of Canada has played one of the most unique roles in history due to their shaping of Canada. The decisions rendered by the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council (hereby referred to as the JCPC) and the Supreme Court of Canada impacted the values of Canadian citizens. These decisions were often contradictory and exposed the legal system as flawed, inflexible and stubborn. Throughout the decades the judiciary sought to maintain rules crafted by the Fathers of Confederation in 1867, rather than adopt more effective standards for judgement. The Canadian federal and provincial powers were broken into sections 91 and 92 in the British North America Act of 1867.

It covers the Black Death, the Hundred Years War, uprisings, the Great Schism, and much more. This book is also a very important contribution to knowledge of the 14th and 15th century, it gives important information easily and clearly.

In the essay “Newfoundlandese, If You Please,” Diane Mooney argues Newfoundland is made up of many different dialects dependent on what region you are in. She backs up her claims by sharing her observations and experiences from her travels throughout the province. In the essay printed by Pearson, Toronto Mooney believes that the different dialects are because of the various nationalities of the early settlers. Mooney also believes that different religious beliefs found in the region contribute to the dialect disparities.
Colonialism is a perpetual and relevant issue in Canada. The definition of Colonialism is, “The policy or practice of acquiring full or partial political control over another country, occupying it with settlers, and exploiting it economically” according to the Oxford dictionary (The Oxford Dictionary, 2018). On a small scale, Canada is influenced by Britain as British Commonwealth; the consequences that preceded the colonization are evident in the contrast of the standards of living between the general populations and Aboriginals. Colonization can also be or continue with, “geographical intrusion in the form of agricultural, urban or industrial encroachments” (LaRocque, 2008). The freedom of religion in Canada relies on the Eurocentric view
The Mariam-Webster dictionary defines culture as “the customary beliefs, social forms, and material traits of a group.” Though the majority of Canadians (over 90%) live within 100 miles of US-Canada Border, there are many stark contrasts in culture between the United States (US) and their neighbors to the North. Possessing some general knowledge and culturally awareness of any foreign territory will prove useful when adapting or visiting, this holds true the in the country of Canada. Examining key components of Canada, such as the citizens, government, military and general history, will help to understand the unique features of their culture.
Some similarities between the two contains stuff like nature and how they describe their regions. When talking about their regions, they both explain the nature around them to show the reader how regionalism is like. Twain first explains the region of the Mississippi River while Jewett explains about the wilderness of Maine. Jewett shows many types of writing elements that Twain doesn’t use. One difference between them would be how fast-paced Jewett’s writing is.
Through the fluctuated characters of Badami, the novel highlights the cultural conflict between east and west in the form of physical as well as emotional integration. Igor Maver writes, “There has recently emerged a pronounced shift to emphasis in contemporary Canadian diasporic writing, for many new texts are set outside Canada and feature reversed migration back to a home place by a westernized / Canadian protagonist who does not so much want to return home as to write back home (e.g. Anita Rau Badami, Michael Ondadje, Janice Kulyk Keefer, Rohinton Ministry, M.G. Vassanji etc.)” The Hero’s Walk is a milieu fluctuates from Toturpuram to Vancouver. A cosmic cultural bay separates the two places.
“The Inconvenient Indian” speaks to a general audience and particularly to US and Canada. The book is organised by chapters and each chapter refers to a variety of themes. Some of these themes are history, culture, politics, and laws. By incorporating all these themes,
Primary sources are from Colonel Bouquet’s writing, Jeffery Amherst, and the experiences of soldiers and civilians captured by the various tribes. The secondary material is based off of historians writing about the subjects or areas related to the subject. Defining the proper amount of material is based on the supporting logic of the argument. For me, I may have an overabundance of journal articles. This amounts to nearly two-hundred journal articles that require review before I can determine if it has pertinent information or opinion about my topic.
Harriet Tubman was a nineteenth century abolitionist. She wasn’t like most northern abolitionists, though because she was an African American (Not that that’s bad or anything). She had rough beginnings, as she was born a slave in the southern states. She escaped, and a year after she did, she started helping other slaves get to freedom. Because of her efforts, 200 or so slaves escaped in the underground railroad.
In the article of “The American Blindspot”, the main point is to show the differing interpretations of the Reconstruction era that arose between Foner and Du Bois. Du Bois poses the idea that the slaves are to be seen as humans and argues the side of the slaves whereas Foner argues from the side in which views the capitalistic side of Reconstruction. In Du Bois’s argument, he makes sure to clarify that he sees the slaveholders as owners of capital rather than just the wealthy elite. In turn, Foner describes the slaveholders as the ruling class and stays away from calling slaves the working class or proletarians. Foner places Reconstruction as a bourgeois revolution whereas Du Bois views the era as having two Reconstructions.
The textbook first begins with an explanation on the Cariboo gold rush, specifically identifying how it had an impact on British Columbia; delving in to the California Gold Rush later on. Notably, it describes how the rush to claim land in BC and mine it for Gold aided the early development of the province. However, the California Gold Rush is given more detail into its origins, detailing how Gold attracted upwards of thousands of people to search for gold along the Sacramento River. Henceforth, prospecting for gold became necessary in the field, which was commonly disappointing, for many staked claims on land to mine, while the best claims were already taken. Accordingly, many who went to mine were unemployed when the gold was all gone.
