! To start off this presentation id like to say that Arctic Sovereignty is a very boring subject. It has many debatable facts and quite honestly if the world wasnʼt so greedy could be solved super easily. With that said i bet a lot of you are asking what is Arctic Sovereignty? Basically its the debate of who owns the Arctic.
The arctic regions of North America depend on isolated overland routes, summertime ship routes, and air transportation in order to maintain a civil and industrialized society such as in Iqaluit, Pond Inlet, Cape Dorset, and Gris Fiord and other remote communities. An example of Northern Resources already accessed was in the State of Alaska where the transportation of oil by pipeline from arctic Alaska was highly controversial in the early 1970s. The main opposition was from environmentalists because of the extreme/unique conditions of the Arctic, the slowness of natural repairs. The protection and preservation of the Arctic have been major goals of conservationists, who fear the damage done to the natural environment from local temperature increases, the widespread use of machinery, the interference with wildlife migration, and oil spills will affect all regions of the world due to the increase of the sea level. This is why it is such a delicate issue when working within the Canadian Arctic; the “Nunavut Land Claims Agreement” prevents anyone not of Inuit descent to go forth with any industrialization without the approval of the Territorial government and even then it can still be turned down by a community of Inuit
United States and Canada: Differences and Similarities Introduction The United States and Canada are usually compared to each other and generally differences are drawn between the two of them, but there are many similarities as well. Both of them are young countries, historically they formed almost together; both of them have European roots; both of them have the same set of moral values, Britain and France being culturally and historically closely related. Moreover, the two old European cultures gave birth to a new nation: Canada. But despite the many similarities, the two countries are set apart by several social, cultural and political factors, even though, as Kaspar Naegele put it, the contrast is rather one of degree. Social differences
Essay The Secessionist Crisis in Canada: The Inevitable Rift between the Francophone and Anglophones Rei Kodra Political Science 412 Professor Dunphy November 25, 2013 The secession of Quebec has always been a problem for the national unity of Canada. There is no doubt that it has created a rift between the French and English side. Although this rift relies on the historical context of this relationship, it is more important to focus on the last fifty years of this strained dilemma. Therefore, it is important to emphasize that while Quebec does indeed impact Canadian federalism both positively and negatively, the same is to be said about Canada having a significance on Quebec nationality. The clash between these two aspects of
As much as Canada tries to pride itself on treating everyone equally, unfortunately this is not even the case with those of true Canadian decent, our First Nations people. It is human to error, but these errors of judgement and turning a blind eye are costing this minority more than just hurt feelings, it is taking away their rights and making it harder for them to get ahead. Maybe the problem with inequality is people aren’t educated enough. Not educated enough to understand the harsh living conditions forced upon Canadian Aboriginal people, and damages being caused by these unfair limitations brought on by reserves and the Indian Act. These acts of violence do not give them the same opportunities to get ahead as the average while male or
The results I received from myself were those of embarrasment, awkwardness, and even fear. They showed how someone might feel when they know they are doing something against the norms. Although most of the time the person going against the norms will not show those feelings. The same cannot be said about the
The love for hockey, the cultural diversity, the bilingualism, the humility, and the pride. Canadians are less outspoken about their identity than some countries might be, like the USA for example. The pride of Canadians is not as highly promoted as the United States of America, but the strong voice of Canada can be heard. All in all, a Canadian in the 21st century is affable, lively, humble, giving, non-discriminating, and an advocator of environmentally friendly actions. At first, when I chose Canadian Studies, I did not expect the course to be as in depth as it is.
These initial perceptions have been spread wide all over the country and even throughout the world. Stereotyping is overly-defined as the negative prejudicial labeling of one’s ethnicity, race, or religion. But on the far end, the scope of stereotyping as a human act can sometimes be misleading. For example, labeling a person or a group of people without a substantial basis to such a degree where it could actually boost the morale or esteem of that person or group is still stereotyping. A cliché yet concrete example could be; males are better in math than the females.
If someone is acting suspicious or look nasty or thuggish, yes they are going to gain people’s attention. . “I can avoid spending time with people whom I was trained to mistrust and who have learned to mistrust my kind or me.” I do not agree with the author of this essay. Yes, some things do seem to favor one race or gender than others but the majority of the situations were just overkill. Yes, the white race it’s the majority.
