In Zennosuke Inouye's Land: A Canadian Veterans Affairs Dilemma by Peter Neary, the author discusses the problems that veteran and non-veteran Japanese Canadians faced during the 1940’s because of their race.

The issue of racism that is shown in the article is the expulsion orders, which led to the removal of Japanese Canadians from coastal British Columbia and were sent inland. The property, which was left from these former, expulsed, property owners were then sold to provide opportunities for veterans of the Second World War as part of the Veterans’ Land Act, 1942.

The accounts of the voyages are contained in the epic the Vinland Sagas. According to the epic, Leif Eriksson and his brother-in-law developed a settlement in Newfoundland, Canada, but had to abandon it when they were overpowered by the natives.

Tim Bowling’s essay examines the evolution of professional hockey from its traditional roots that brought it to the forefront of Canada’s national identity to the outdated, violent, capitalistic business venture it is today. Through personal experience and introspection, Bowling examines the elements of the game that still attract him Mainly, he states the while he still finds the beauty, grace, and unique skill set required to play the game of hockey alluring, professional hockey is no longer relevant in his life as the focus has shifted to money, marketing, and machismo. Bowling begins with a flashback to 1993, when the Toronto Maple Leafs were taking on the Los Angeles Kings in the deciding game of the Stanley Cup Final. It was poetic metaphor for his feelings towards professional hockey; the Maple Leafs, representatives of the nostalgic feelings he harbored towards the game he was once enamored with, were taking on the Kings who represented everything “glitzy, crass, and [American]” (211) about the sport. His disdain for professional hockey had been growing for some time but this marked his lowest point as a hockey fan.
This war destroyed 626 villages ; and more than 200,000 people were killed! Did you know that this war is still continuing today ?

Because they were occupied with the Napoleonic Wars they could only supply 5000 troops to Canada to help repel the American advances. The leadership of upper Canada were uncertain of the loyalty of the inhabitants, many acts of treason and mutiny occurring at the start if the war. Because of this Sir Issac Brock felt the need to go on the offensive to gain the trust of the people. Sir Issac Brock said “there can be no doubt that a large portion of the population of this neighbourhood are sincere in their professions to defend this country, but it appears like likewise evident to me that the greater part are either indifferent to what is passing, or so completely American as to rejoice in the prospects of a change in governments”. This is his reasoning for why he needs to gain the trust of the people.
Canada sent 2500 member of the Canadian Forces to help provide security for the people and rebuild Afghanistan. It may have cost a lot of money but it is a legacy for the Canadian government that they were able to aid and assist an ally and a nation-state in it quest for change and the removal of a terrorist group. Canada also took part in the Suez Canal crisis, a conflict that was seen as something that could possibly lead to a WWIII, by being the peacemaker along with the UN. In quest for the Suez Canal, Britain, Egypt, France and Israel had a conflict.

Included in this motivation was the desire for wealth during the gold rush, the need for increased agricultural production, and the expansionist mindset to spread beyond their homeland.
