Attitudes of Canada, Great Britain, Newfoundland, and the United States About Newfoundland’s Integration into Canada: 1939-1949 Around the time of Canada’s first Confederation, Newfoundland was for the most part against it. Joining Confederation would have caused them to lose their sovereignty, while also losing control over their resources and tax dollars. This was a fair assessment, considering their geographical separation from the rest of Canada. Furthermore, Newfoundland spent roughly five to ten years, beginning in the early 1940s, evaluating and campaigning for both responsible government and Confederation with Canada. This split Newfoundland in half ideologically, in terms of who wanted to join Canada and who did not.
This paper will explore the ability of the NDP to effect labour market policy through the institutions of the Canadian state. This paper will argue that because of disproportionate representation in the legislative branch, the limited influence a small party can exercise in the policy-making process, and the devolution of labour market policy-making powers to the provinces, the NDP is inhibited in influencing and instating comprehensive policy in this area. As a means of uniting the many diverse groups and interests that form Canadian labour, the Canadian Labour Congress [CLC] was formed in 1956. Although there are other groups that represent Canadian Labour, the CLC remains the largest and most influential group. In order to gain more influence over the policy-making process, the CLC and the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation formed the NDP in 1962.
Canadians in the Second Battle of Ypres Sean Chia Wei Hsiung Social Studies 11 2-4 Mr. Schroeder November 4th Canada was dragged into an irrelevant war by Britain after its declaration of independence in 1867 against Germany due to its unchanged foreign policy. Canada played an essential role for Great Britain in many battles in World War I (WWI). The most important battle was the second battle of Ypres. In order to support its mother country, Canada shipped large amount of soldiers and volunteers to Britain, and provided numerous weapons and ammunition, which resulted in the success of the second battle of Ypres. Canadian forces saw their first engagement of WWI as part at the second battle of Ypres, showing their valour in the battle of Gravenstafel, Kitchener’s Woods, and Saint Julien.
There were circumstances existing within the Dominion which lead leaders to push for confederation. First of all, in 1865, United States cancelled the “Canadian/ American Reciprocity Treaty”, the free trade agreement which allowed goods to move between Eastern Canada and U.S.A. This meant that Eastern Canada would have to look for new places to ship their goods. A union of all of Canada could become this route of trade. Secondly, in the Province of Canada, the government had difficulty reaching agreement, because there was no party that could have majority support.
Reference Re Amendment of the Constitution of Canada The Patriation Reference Background and Quick Summary The case analyses the role of the provinces in the amending process. Their position was unclear: there was no consistent practice by the federal government of obtaining the consent of the provinces before requesting an amendment, although unanimous provincial consent has been obtained for all amendments affecting provinces PM Trudeau proposed the amendments which ultimately became the Constitution Act 1982 and asserted that, if provincial consent was not obtained, the federal government would proceed unilaterally and to requires the enactments of the amendments by the UK Parliament. These amendments had substantial effects on the power of the provinces Three provinces directed references to their Court of Appeal, asking whether there was a requirement of law that provincial consent be obtained and whether there was a requirement of convention that provincial consents be obtained. On appeal from a variety of answers, the Supreme Court held that the consent was not required as “matter of law”, but that a substantial degree of provincial consent was required as “a matter of convention” Case: Martland, Ritchie, Dickson, Beetz, Chouinard and Lamer THE NATURE OF CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTIONS: A substantial part of the rules of Canadian Constitution are written while another part consists of the rulers of the common law. Those parts are referred to as the law of the constitution But important parts of the constitution are nowhere to be found in the law od the constitution.
As consider the acquisition requirement by Maple Group will affect the majority ownership of TMX, Wayne Fox, the director of TMX said merger with LSE also was the better choice than with Maple Group. The rejection inspired Maple Group patriotic feelings, as the local company of Canada, they didn’t want the Toronto stock exchange be the part of London stock exchange company, therefore, Maple didn’t give up to acquire TMX. Until 30 June, 2011, LSE and TMX give up their merge plan as no more than half of the shareholders of TMX agree with the acquisition. When we analyse the reason why Maple persistent in merge with TMX, some economists said like: Moffatt Mike of Richard Ivey said, the merge was based on the patriotism which will add the stress on investors who invest in Canada. Robert Young of Liquidnet Canada said, the merge wave inspired the patriotic feeling of Canadians, like what did by Singapore stock exchange group.
Borden knew the war could not be won without reinforcements and so he decided to pass the conscription bill. (Cruxton and Wilson, 118). In 1940, though Mackenzie King had promised no conscription, he passed the national resources mobilization act—this was conscription but only to protect Canada at home. But as war continued Mackenzie King was asked to send additional troops and just like in 1917 most volunteers were English, not French-Canadian. The English-Canadians sought after full conscription like Britain and the United States, while the French-Canadians still did not want any form of conscription.
A Rhetorical Analysis of ‘Canada’s “Genocide”: Thousands Taken from Their Homes Need Help’ Published in Maclean’s magazine in 1999, Michael Downey’s short but grave narrative essay Canada’s “Genocide”: Thousands Taken from Their Homes Need Help depicts an agonizing account of the Sixties Scoop adoptions. By opening his essay with the tragic but later successful example of Carla Williams’ life, Downey introduces the forceful system that prevailed in the late 1960s. This presentation serves as the foreshadowing of the evidences used to support his main idea that the forced adoption within the native communities caused individual and cultural tragedy, along with the belief that they can prosper beyond the tragedy of the past. By supplying several
Kyoto Discord – Let’s Be Wise, If Not Right or Rich: Unattainable Platform In her essay, Gwen Kelly writes about the position Canada’s Prime Minister Jean Chrétien, must make in regards to the 1997 Kyoto Accord. He must take into consideration the “strong opposition of the United States and now from Alberta” (Kelly, par. 1). She suggest that it is difficult to “know which scientist, which economist, and which politicians to believe” (Kelly, par. 1).
To The Indian Who Died in Africa Eliot's poem is a memorial to the Indian soldiers who died during the British Empire's African campaigns during WWII. The key lines in the poem are: Where a man dies bravely At one with his destiny, that soil is his. The message of the poem is that perhaps India never 'belonged to' Britain (even though it was for several centuries a part of the British Empire), and that Africa never 'belonged to' Britain either. So a casual or shallow analysis would ask why Indian troops were fighting in Africa to defend the British Empire. But Eliot says that this is the wrong question.
