Jacques Cartier and his exploration of Canada By: Jaymee Yeung 7-2 Jacques Cartier was born on Saint-Malo on Dec 31, 1491, and in total, he made three trips to North America. On his third and last voyage, a series of unfortunate events stopped King Francis I from sponsoring expeditions for him ever again, and he died on Saint-Malo in 1557. On Cartier’s first and second trips, he was sponsored by King Francis I to find a route to Asia through North America, and to find valuable spices and precious metals on his first one, he set sail with two ships and 61 men, explored Newfoundland and discovered Prince Edward Island. On Cartier’s second trip he found the Iroquois, heard tales of riches further west from them, and traveled back to France
The Red River Resistance The next major event was the Red River Resistance. In this event, Sir John Macdonald sent out surveyors to divide the Canadian land because the Hudson’s Bay Company had sold Rupert’s land to the Canadian government. This sparked an outrage with the Métis because they wanted to keep their current laws. Due to conflicts and arguments about the land, a surveyor was executed by the Métis leader which worsened the situation. In return for the surveyor’s death, the British Canadians ordered the death of the Métis leader which ended the conflict.
Today, Canada promotes multiculturalism and is generally accepting of people of all ethnic backgrounds. However, this was not always the case as the Canadian government often mistreated minority groups such as the Jewish and the Japanese, especially during World War Two. Anti-Semitism was always prevalent in Canada during the early twentieth century but as Germany developed these sentiments, Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King implemented immigration restrictions targeted at Jewish refugees as an attempt to keep them out of Canada. Additionally, the mistreatment of Japanese Canadians heightened after Japan attacked Pearl Harbour in 1941. Consequently, the Canadian government responded by forcibly removing Japanese Canadians who were
The Thirteen colonies knew Louisbourg was a key to the rest of New France. In the winter of 1744-45 the House of Representatives voted to take action and sailed for Louisbourg.

Expecting an outburst of profanity, my father says with a soft voice “Shiv, I am not your biological father. I am your step-father.” Immigrating to Canada at the age of 20, my Mother had it rough from the start. She had no knowledge of the English language, nor did she have any friends. She was arranged to be married
We consume nonhumans lives to satisfy our taste buds. However, the nonhuman animals we often eat, are suffering due to our selfish interest. Many claim consuming these animals is a need but it is proven we can obtain these nutrients from other food sources. Another example is nonhuman animal testing. We continuously harm animals such as mice, rabbits, cats, and so forth but do not test on humans prioritizing human life over nonhuman life.
"'I feel that Manson's appearance and giving his forum to spout his poisoned philosophy is not in the best interest of the Mississippi Coast community...In the interest of unity and cohesion in the community, I ask you to cancel this concert!'" (Mayor Ken Combs pg. 250) Marilyn Manson was, and is still by less than before, misunderstood. Usually because of his appearance and stage performance, people think he is down right evil and wants everyone to die. But that is not true at all, there has been rumors of puppies being killed at his concerts (which isn't true, in fact he has tried being vegan many time), but the truth of the matter is, he has donated to several charities.
There also happens to be the current presidential election. At this point I’d say that most Hindu americans have sided with Hillary Clinton because of the fact that she is trying to aid refugees and is not particularly looking to start conflict, while Trump is. The recent jihadist bombing that had taken place would be seen as both cruel and disgusting. Hindus have always been rather accepting of the other religions surrounding them and they believe that everyone has the right to worship whoever or whatever they wish, and taking violent action against those who do not have the same beliefs as you would be viewed as plain wrong. The Hindu people are a peaceful and nonviolent community that are very accepting of things and people as they are.
The source illustrates Canada, the home to many immigrants on native land. Canada is filled with diversity and known for its multicultural life.

On June 15, 1895 Mr. James Smith fell from a ladder while pruning a tree; Mr. Smith injured his hip. After waiting almost one month after his injury, Mr. Smith consulted with Dr. W. W. Grant. Mr. Grant gave Mr. Smith a diagnosis of “no fracture”. “Dr. Grant heard no more about Mr. Smith until April 1896, when the poorly paid law clerk engaged two of the best young lawyers in Colorado to file a $10,000 civil action against Dr. Grant, claiming limb shortening and disability as a result of his failure to diagnose a femoral fracture” (Barnard Health Care.
“It has too often been too easy for rulers and governments to incite man to war.” -Lester Bowles Pearson. He was the 14th Prime Minister of Canada between the years of 1963-1968. Pearson was born on April 23, 1897 in Newtonbrook, Ontario. Even though he lived until age of 75, he wouldn’t have lived that much longer since he had cancer and our technology back then wasn 't as good as it is now. Therefore, he passed away on December 27, 1972 at age 75 in Ottawa, Ontario.
For the longest time, Canada had been under British control, however, this changed a bit after World War 1 took place. Of the 630,000 Canadians that served in the war, more than 10,500 either sacrificed their lives or got injured in a World War 1 battle that changed the way Canadians looked at themselves (Morton, Desmond. "First World War (WWI)." The Canadian Encyclopedia. N.p., n.d.

They were later transported to ghost towns in BC or move to Alberta or Manitoba in order to work on sugar beet farms, where they would have been able to keep their families together. The others who resisted were sent to internment camps, which were overcrowded and had very poor conditions. This social injustice comes from actions stemming from Order-in-Council P.C.1486, which broke the Charter of Rights section 6, subsection (2), which states that “ Every citizen of Canada and every person who has the status of a permanent resident of Canada has the right to move to and take up residence in any province; and to pursue the gaining of a livelihood in any province”. The exclusion of the Japanese along the West Coast was an obvious breach of their rights as Canadians who have lived there for decades. They forced them to move out of British Columbia and were dispatched into other parts of Canada in which living conditions were not suitable.
