Canada is renowned for their peacekeepers and no other country is considered more peaceful. In the 21st Century, we see expressions of the Canadian Identity every day. Elements of the Canadian Identity are liberalized immigration policy, a policy of multiculturalism, a commitment to bilingualism, the Canadian Bill of Rights, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, a commitment to peacekeeping and a commitment to protecting and promoting Canadian culture. Whenever the question of “What does it mean to be Canadian?” arises, you often hear the words multiculturalism, freedom, hockey, democracy and family. Canada is a land where multicultural societies live side by side in harmony with minor irritations here and there.
B. The Primary Interdependent Parties of the Conflict The primary interdependent parties involved in the "Canada - Free Québec" conflict are the separatists of Québec and the rest of the people of Québec. The goals of the Québécois separatists involve Québec's designation as a distinct society which would enable Québec to govern itself while still remaining a part Canada. These separatists consider themselves a distinct society and therefore want the right to have their own government and laws. The remainders of the peoples of Québec have a non-separatist view.
Louis Riel is a glorious Canadian due to the documents he wrote which promoted equality and active participation in society for Metis and First Nations. For instance, in 1869 Riel wrote the List of Rights for First Nations. This document emphasized equality and rights for First Nations. This included equal rights for First Nations to participate in society, such as the right to vote, claim land, and maintain language and culture. In this list, Riel truly fought for all First Nations and Metis to be considered equals within society.
Quality of life is one of the best; people that live here enjoy the security of knowing that their family will be safe. Canada is a free country, and you are allowed expressing your freedom of speech. Canada has a worldwide reputation with other countries because of its non-violent, non-war reputation. We have a great Health care system; our government and
It is perceived that Canada is a meritocratic system or society in which people have influence or status according to their abilities and achievements rather than because of their social class. This goes hand in hand with the “American/Canadian dream” that if you’ll work hard, have the right attitude, have a high moral character and integrity you’ll be successful and achieve your goals. Unfortunately, according to sociologists, meritocracy is a myth. We live in a society that is in denial about the very existence of inequality. Canadians strongly resist viewing their society as one characterized by entrenched inequities (Allahar & Coté, 1998).
With this wide range of choices, a family can get to choose with their own preference. Old time radio favorites influenced many important entertainers we have in modern times. Canada emerged from its colonial past with a unique political art, music, and literature. Ironically, at a time when Canadians have the most confidence to make a virtue of their diversity, their cultural environment is rapidly becoming a piece of the American "entertainment" market. The order in council through which the Massey Commission was formed stated "it is in the national interest to give encouragement to institutions which express national feeling, promote common understanding and add to the variety and richness of Canadian

In this paper, Danial’s thesis seems to be clear on what he is going to write about. Danial is explaining how citizenship can save America through Barber; the author. He points out some strong statements where he is able to back up it up. As Danial explained ”Every nation in the world looked at America with admiration and not only did they respect America, but they believed in the leadership offered by America. The leadership did not come from the government however; it came from hard working citizens who were more concerned about the well being of their nation than their own lives” (2).
Those whom nature hath so joined together, let no man put asunder. What unite us is far greater that what divides us.” John F. Kennedy Thesis/Statement: The differences [similarities] between the United States and Canada are very striking, and they deserve through investigation. Although, Canada and the United States are fairly young countries they are closely related. Therefore, comparing their cultures, democracies and wars will give us a greater understanding of these countries. Comparison point 1: Culture a.)
