In Canada right now: One in ten children is poor. Canada's child poverty rate of 15 percent is three times as high as the rates of Sweden, Norway or Finland. Every month, 770,000 people in Canada use food banks. Forty percent of those relying on food banks are children. These statistics point to a betrayal of Canada's children.
(Sect 3.2). In the Inuit culture if the elderly become infirm to keep up or contribute to household survival their left behind and usually end up dying. (Sect 3.2) Culture of the Nestilik Inuit of the Attic demonstrates the need for hunters to work willingly. The Inuit people separate, or come back together depending on the season and the type of hunting their doing. Nestilik Inuit rely on animals for most of their material items.

The White Race has been the majority throughout most of the US history. Both Hispanic and non Hispanic are both included in the White Race. Most of the common ancestral background is from Europe. I found that according to Macionis (2012), “More than one-third of the U.S. population falls into a racial or ethnic minority category even though this has been the case for most of history.” Minorities make up an increasing share of this nation’s people. A majority of more than half of the largest U.S. cities are minorities.
The economic, social and political issues that occurred were not taken lightly by the Indians and sometimes the way they acted was diverse and disruptive. In today’s time, neither federal government nor the Native American tribes have come to a conclusion as to what identity or status the North American continent should be. In the nineteenth century, times were devastating for the Native Americans. The United States signed the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868 with the Sioux which was to keep non-Indians from hunting or settling on their reservation which had been recently established. At that time, they gave up rights to almost all the land they were occupying.
It’s almost like we put them in these places so we don’t have to deal with them as much. In my opinion this is a form of racism. Racism is something that is rapid throughout the world. But out of all the places in the world a person would think things like racism would be very minimal in a place like Canada; this is not the case at all. Canadians have been trying to overrule Aboriginals beliefs for years.
If you cannot stand temperatures of 10F (-12C) or lower for parts of the year (JAN-FEB) then most of Canada will not be for you. About the only place that is not really cold during winter is southern British Columbia, which rarely sees much snow
The Canadian identity isn’t something you can describe or explain in just one word, or one paragraph. Our identity does not come from one place or one thing; it comes from everything and everyone. From the west coast to the east coast and everything in between, this is what makes up who we are. People all over the globe have tried to define who we are and what our national character is, but in my opinion only a Canadian can describe what it’s like to be a Canadian. When someone thinks of Canada, they think of the Calgary stampede, the Quebec winter festival, the CN tower, or maybe even the flat plains of Saskatchewan.
Webster’s Dictionary defines the term homeless as, “Those people who have no permanent residence, especially those who live outdoors due to poverty.” The issue remains that many people believe that the poor choose to be poor. As many functionalists would agree, more often than not, homelessness derives from a number of factors, rather than a single reason. At least 200,000 Canadians experience homelessness in any given year and at least 150,000 Canadians a year use a homeless shelter at some point (CBCNews, 2013). According to TheHomelessHub.ca (Gaetz, Donaldson, Richter, & Gulliver, 2013) the causes of homelessness are apparent in three different situations: • Structural Factors • Individual and Relational Factors • Systems Failures Structural factors are economic and societal issues that affect the way an individual may live their life. Each country will vary depending on their economy and societal situations.
