Canadian National Identity Essay

… Until this there was no other identity Canada had, except being called as a British colony. As stated by Grant, the intention of many Canadians was to have a different identity from United States, in terms of religion, education, politics, and socialism (Grant, 1965).

As Canadians were searching for a different cultural identity, Hockey provided a platform for it. It was begun when the Canadian team competed in the Vancouver Winter Olympics. It unified the whole nation, and the Canadian team grabbed recognition from throughout the world. Ice hockey is a traditional game, played by men, and since it has masculine roles, it simultaneously attracts other men as well. This role played by Ice hockey is crucial, as it contributed a lot in creating a…. [read more]

This is for the purpose of the protection of rare species that living in these areas. The other investment is the creation of areas for national wildlife and bird sanctuaries.

These are only a few of the actions that the government has tried to implement in order to maintain the national heritage…. [read more]


Canadian Labour in "The Honest Workingman Term Paper

… Canadian Labour

In "The Honest Workingman and Workers' Control: The experience of Toronto Skilled Workers, 1860-1892," G.S. Kealey explores the role of skilled workers and craftsmen in the late nineteenth century labour movement. According to Kealey, historians have often underestimated the contributions of skilled labourers to labour politics and also to workplace culture. Kealey also points out the similarities between craftsmen practicing different trades. Specifically, the author treats craftsmen as a specific class of worker who was by the turn of the century caught between the time-honored artisan past and the inevitable pull toward full industrialization. To illustrate his thesis, Kealey focuses on three nineteenth century labour organizations: Coopers International Union, Ontario Number 3; International Typographical Union Number 91; and the Iron Molders International Union….

Canadian Politics Term Paper

… Canadian Politics

Canada is a nation that is comprised of ten provinces and three territories. Those provinces and territories span five regions: the Atlantic (Maritime region), Central Canada, the prairies, the West Coast and North (DeRocco 2009, 61). Every province in Canada works with Canada's federal government to make sure that Canada is progressing nicely; however, each of these provinces, it must be noted, has its own government. There is one question that plagues Canadian society and politics: Should Canada become a republic or retain its constitutional monarchy? While there are many arguments out there for keeping the status quo, there are just as many arguments that can debunk pro-monarchy assertions -- for example, most developed nations have moved past the archaic concepts of nobles….

Canadian vs. American Policing Research Proposal

… Canadian vs. American Policing

This work intends to compare and contrast policing in America and Canada. Toward this end, an extensive review of relevant literature will be conducted. The literature in this review will show that policing in the United States are similar and yet are very different as well. The work of Hodgson, et al. (2005) entitled: "Public Policing in the 21st Century: Issues and Dilemmas in the U.S. And Canada" states that public police institutions are "now being challenged to develop policies and practices that meet the consumer needs and expectations of the increasingly diverse 21st century U.S. And Canadian publics. These challenges include population changes, the 'homeland security' agenda, police militarization, the public's fear of crime, new types of crime, revitalizing police…. [read more]


Canadian History an Analysis Term Paper

… Canadian Conscription in World War II. In sharp contrast to the perception of World War I by many Canadian citizens, the implications of a German victory in World War II were profound, even for those once believed to be seemingly located safely far away in North America. In his May 23, 1941 address to the American people, President Franklin D. Roosevelt emphasized that the entire Western Hemisphere and indeed, the entire world order, would be adversely affected by a German victory in Europe. "Your Government knows what terms Hitler, if victorious, would impose," the president said. "They are, indeed, the only terms on which he would accept a so-called 'negotiated' peace. And, under those terms, Germany would literally parcel out the world -- hoisting the…. [read more]


Canadian Politics Labour Thesis

… Canadian Politics and Labor

CANADIAN POLITICS & LABOR

The questions this research seeks to answer are the questions of: (1) What has happened to industrialism, and where is it heading; (2) How has organized labor responded; (3) What strategies and goal should labor adopt and why?

Industrial legalism" represents the highest point for Canadian organized labor during postwar Keynesianism, but it's not clear that this model can survive globalization and neoliberalism. Industrial legalism means "the compulsory recognition of unions and enforceability of negotiated contracts." (Howlett). Deindustrialization is defined in the work of Cairncross (1982) and Lever (1981) as follows:

Deindustrialization means an outright decline in the output of manufactured goods or in employment in the manufacturing sector;

Deindustrialization can mean a change from manufacturing to…. [read more]


Canadian Prime Minister Too Powerful? Research Paper

… As an example, "the prime minister has flexed his proverbial political muscle once again with the introduction of a draconian terror law which will allow for police detention of suspects without charges for up to 72 hours and for judges to compel witnesses to testify at trial" (Radia, 2011). This is important to take into account because of the pressures that are being made on the society in following these pieces of legislation. The police detention can be seen as an abuse especially taking into account the example of the neighboring country the United States where such piece of legislation would cause serious concern related to the way in which the applicability would infringe the civil rights of individuals.

Finally, another aspect that is relevant…. [read more]


Canadian Aboriginals Essay

… Canadian Aboriginals

The interaction between the white man and the American continent is responsible for almost having extinct its aboriginal population. As they had been initially only interested in the profits that the new continent would bring them, white people did not pay attention to the effects that their actions had on the natives. Moreover, they considered natives to be a mere impediment that had to be quickly disposed so that it would not affect the well-being of the white society. In spite of the fact that the Canadian aboriginals proved to be gentle and welcoming at the time that they encountered white colonists, they did not receive the same treatment from the settlers. The Canadian Indians have been treated cruelly for centuries, from the…. [read more]


Being Canadian Is Being British Essay

… That allowed them some of the freedoms they wanted. They also had to make some concessions. While that harmed the spirit of nationalism a bit, politicians still pushed forward with the idea that Canada did not need to be involved with the British any longer. Over time, more people began to agree with that.

From the Indian point-of-view, the 1885 uprising was very different from the way it was portrayed by most Canadians.

However, most of the Metis and others who associated with them only told parts of the story. It made many of them sad, but they also did not want to get others in their group into trouble for their part in the conflict.

Rather than speak out, they told bits and pieces…. [read more]


Canadian Border: Current Political Issues Term Paper

… Since the September 11 terrorist attacks, however, both the United States and Canada have been working on ways to help increase security at the border.

The initial response of the United States to the Canadian border issues after the terrorist attacks was to send in uniformed and armed U.S. military troops to patrol the border. The Canadians did not approve of this measure, and many viewed it as a kind of threat to them. Many referred to this act as the "Mexicanization" of the Canadian border, comparing the actions of the United States toward the Canadian border to its long-standing actions at the Mexican border (Day, 2001). Canadians expressed concern that the armed soldiers would injure innocent civilians and that traffic at border crossings would…. [read more]


British Marines in American Revolution and War of 1812 Term Paper

… ¶ … British Marinesduring the Amer Revolution War and the War of 1812

The American Revolution is considered to be one of the most important political events in the history of the U.S., as well as a turning point in the development of military tactics and warfare. From a political perspective, it represented the moment in which the American colonies gained their independence from the British rule, while from the military point-of-view, it marked the beginning of a new war strategy, in which all the components of both offensive and defensive forces were used and played their significant role.

The confrontations that took place on the sea are of particular interest due to the fact that they involved the British Marine as opponents. From this…. [read more]


British Parliament Proclaimed Term Paper

… In fact, so much of Canada's economy had fallen under the sway of American industries and investors that "a common complaint began to articulate: until confederation, Canada had been a colony of Great Britain; now it was a colony of the United States." (Joyce, 24).

The Vietnam War and the race riots in the United States during the 1960's, however, truly began to draw ideological lines between the two nations, and the New Nationalism began to emerge in Canada. Additionally, the cultural mosaic began to become even more enriched as the twentieth century came to a close: "According to the 2001 census, Chinese in Canada now comprise the country's largest visible minority group, surpassing one million for the first time." (Chui, 2005). Although this New…. [read more]

Canada's Relationship to the United States in Margaret Atwood's Surfacing Term Paper

… Canadian Nationalism & Margaret Atwood

Canada's Relationship to the U.S. Vis-a-Vis Margaret Atwood's Surfacing

For Americans or Europeans who are oblivious to the justifiably pessimistic feelings many Canadians have toward the U.S. In particular and Western attitudes in general, reading Margaret Atwood's book Surfacing should serve as enlightenment. And if readers rationalize that Atwood's work is fictional so it probably isn't representative of how Canadians truly feel about their neighbors to the south - those readers would be, at some level wrong. Indeed, Atwood's is a critically acclaimed and brilliant novel which weaves Canadian nationalism themes, universal feministic themes - and strong ecological consciousness - into an appealing dramatic tapestry of drama and conflict. Meantime, this paper's task is to flush out metaphors deep in…. [read more]

International Trade of Canadian Lumber Research Paper

… International Trade of Canadian Lumber

The contemporaneous society is characterized by a series of elements, such as the opening of boundaries to international trade or the massive advent of technology, which has come to impact virtually all life activities. Aside from these however, a more concerning characteristic which is common in the modern day society is given by the threat of environmental instability.

Global warming is becoming more and more present and the risks it poses for humanity call for an integrated action. Problems which contribute to environmental instability include actions such as higher levels of consumption, increased dump of industrial waste in waters and other fields or high levels of deforestations.

Public Policy Towards Business Term Paper

… Canadian Economy

In recent years, Canada's economy has quickly developed into an international leader. Even the Canadian Dollar has eclipsed the United States Dollar in might. The question is, what is the cause of Canada's robust economy? One major contributing factor is the role of international business, whether that be imports, exports or buyouts. The increase in international takeovers in Canada cannot be ignored as a reason for the economic turnaround, however, there is the lingering question of whether or not this increase in international takeovers is actually hollowing out the Canadian economy and, if so, will this eventually set the economy heading in the reverse direction.

This paper will examine these questions. First, an overview of the Canadian economy will be presented. Second, an…. [read more]

Canadian Political History Term Paper

… World War I, known at the time as the Great War, was a major challenge to countries caught up in the conflict. The war involved a massive mobilization of manpower on a scale not seen before, and getting enough men into the military was a difficult proposition for many countries. Canada entered the war early with more than 30,000 volunteers in the army, forming the First Canadian Division of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. In time, tensions developed between the English-speaking Canadians and the French-speaking Quebecois. The latter wer seen as not doing their part, and this belief was bound with a broader effort to ban French and destroy the French-speaking community in Canada. The issue would soon also be bound with a debate over conscription…. [read more]

Canadian Military History Samuel Hughes Thesis

… Mental Health Institutions

Introduction to Sam Hughes

If Lieutenant Colonel Samuel Hughes, also known as Sir Samuel Hughes and Sam Hughes, is one of the true scoundrels in Canadian history, why are scholars and historians continually bringing his name up and reviewing his life? If Sam Hughes is truly an embarrassment to the dignity of Canada, and a black mark on the otherwise sterling reputation of Canadian political and military history, why then do authors who bring old issues back to life write books and article about him? Could it be that no matter that Hughes engaged in skullduggery, brash arrogance, illegal activities and that from time to time he used questionable judgment, his name still reflects derring-do in a memorable way because of his….

Canada is a large country in terms of geographic area, and its history and society incorporate many diverse people and different languages. The country occupies over nine-million square miles of land -- almost seven percent of the Earth's total landmass -- and much of this area is very sparsely populated (StatCan 2009).
