The Canadian bill of rights was the rights brought to action by John Diefenbaker’s government and is a defining moment in Canadian history because as of August 10th 1960 the rights of humans were protected, there became no discrimination, humans received certain freedoms, freedom of religion, and human equality became enforced by this law. The Canadian bill of rights created peace and granted humans the rights they deserved but a controversial question to ask is if Diefenbaker was not elected for prime minister would the Bill of Rights have been enforced and if we would be living the way we are today. John Diefenbaker helped give humans their rights and I do not think with out him becoming prime minister we would be living this way. This event was a huge headline in papers and the bill of rights made sure there would not be a repeat of the suffering of humans in world war two. The historical impact that made this a significant to Canadian history is that the Canadian Bill of Rights gave everyone in Canada the freedom and rights.
Canada proved itself to be a force that doesn’t need someone to tell them what to do by helping other countries and winning battles by themselves. Post Second World War changed Canada. By now Canada’s reputation is substantial and is known for helping the world when it is in dire need of help. Canada also asserted its independence by creating a flag for itself symbolizing that it deserves to be its own independent nation. Without Canada participating in all of these World Affairs, Canada might not have had the chance to prove themselves worthy of being an independent nation.
My own identity is centred around the place I came from, who my parents were, where I grew up, how I was raised, where I am today and where I am going. When my parents decided to have me, or my siblings, they didn’t say, we better hold off on having kids because there is too much American influence. They lived their lives as Canadians with the hopes and dreams of all Canadians. I will even go as far as saying that they embraced the Canadian Dream, living in this our free country, with the maple leaf flag, the Great Canadian Lakes, ten provinces all joined together in a hope of a greater future as Canadians. INTERVIEWS ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE THINK ABOUT CANADIANS Yes, Canada for me is a state of mind and a state of living, a place I call home, a place where I am proud to have raised my kids, a place where they will continue to raise their own.
Every human needs to have knowledge of self and the culture that is their own. The CBC primarily uses Canadian resources to preserve this culture. There are many news programs to inform Canadians about issues within, and affecting, the country. Shows such as â€˜The Nationalâ€™ or â€˜Canada Nowâ€™ give people living in Canada the option to watch news from their own country, as opposed to viewing American stations. They deal with local, regional and national issues which helps people understand what is going on all over the country, in effect bringing it closer together.
Regardless of whether a Conservative or a Liberal is in executive power, the needs of minority groups are always clearly represented in the passing of legislation. Ever since colonization, American interests have been evident within Canada due to the abundance of natural resources. However, the history of Canada has been mainly shaped around efforts to keep the United States away without producing bad

Assign an overall grade average to correspond with your evaluation. In my opinion, the Government has come a long way from where they were in 1968, to where they are today. The changes they made to the Charter have made Canada a better and more attractive place to live. Although the Canadian Government does have its faults, it has made up for it by providing rights to minority groups, such as gays and lesbians, and people with disabilities. I believe that the Government, after Prime Minister Trudeau has improved a lot because of his views on how things should be.
Stephen Castles makes a number of arguments in his article, The International Politics of Forced Migration, however I will be focusing on one. I will focus on his argument that policy makers have implemented policies that attract mainly high skilled workers, and are unwelcoming to unskilled workers and their families. I agree with the Canadian immigration policy which favors highly skilled workers and consider it an essential tool for maintaining Canada’s economic growth and prosperity. Further,
Canada has an important role to play in the globalized society and must be willing to take the first steps to creating a more equal civilization for all. Although we can only speculate where Canada’s policies will turn in the future, it is quite clear that Canada must continue with the current trends and have multiculturalism as a constantly influential aspect of Canadian
