Sir John A. Macdonald Confederation Speech History Assignment Kaltun Abdirahman Dave Nesbitt CHI4U 07/11/14 Honourable members, in this speech I would like to state some of the internal and external factors that influence the confederation of Canada. There are numerous influences which have caused us to consider becoming a confederation. The internal factors include political standstill resulting from the current political structure and The Intercolonial Railway of Canada which would improve trade, military movement, and transportation in general.

I. INITIAL ANALYSIS OF THE "CANADA – FREE QUEBEC" CONFLICT A. Introduction of the Conflict Quebec is a province of Canada, and many Québécois (French speaking people from Québec) want to be a free, sovereign society apart from the rest of Canada. The interdependent parties involved in the “Canada – Free Québec” conflict are the Province of Québec, the nine other provinces of Canada and the three territories Provinces are similar to states and territories are geographic areas that is owned and controlled by a particular government or country.

We could not have Kept History without Canadian Talent Throughout the years, Canada has overcome many fears, faults, victories, battles, hardships and countries. Not only did the world come to know Canada as the great peacemaker, but also through Canadian broadcasting. The CBC and NFB helped preserve the identity of French-Canadians not only in broadcasting works but also in forming the way the culture itself is preserved. French-Canadians play a big part as well. It all started in 1929, the Royal Commission on Broadcasting (the Aird Commission) was known to ensure that Canada's cultural identity is reflected in the radio programming available to Canadians.
One of the biggest differences between Canadian and American government is that Canada is a constitutional monarchy, and the United States is a type of democracy. Canada's head of state is the British monarch, who is represented in Canada by an official known as the governor general. The head of state chooses the Canadian head of government and the Prime Minister has the power to act as a restraint on the prime minister's power. The United States is different because there is no division between head of state and head of government. The American head of state is its president which elected for a four-year term by a national vote.
Sexism Sexism caused a lot of problems in history. For example during the industrial revolution women are prevented to have a job that is paid equally as a man does although they do more work than a men does, and this lead to women rights movement. In ancient China women were not allow to go out they couldn’t have a job all they do is stay at home and do housework. It’s not really because their religion didn’t allow them. It’s because Chinese people think after women get married they will live with their husband and they will become a part of the other family.
Since their husbands were laid off, bringing in little or no money, the women went out to look for part time jobs such as being a maid to the wealthier families. The women also had a hard time keeping her young children in school, especially if they lived on a farm because the children would need to help their mother and father with the animals and crops, so they wouldn’t get a proper education. The few women that went to collage had to drop out because the price was too high to afford to stay in. It was harder for women to get a job because they were weaker than men and most likely inexperienced but they would take what they could get, if they could get anything. The women who was at their last resort was to send their children away to work and earn a small pay to buy food.
She reverts back to what she was preaching. Instead of going into battle, she tells women that there’s nothing up there. Which “secure to stay” stems from in the passage (26). Anna feels like there’s no consistency once women have the power to overthrown men. Even though she thinks it’s unfair she hesitates and recognizes that men and women should have equal rights.
