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.

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. On the other hand, the external factors include the American civil war, the U.S. doctrine of Manifest Destiny and the Fenian raids. Now, in regards to the comparative advantages of a Legislative
Solidarity Forever The longstanding political alliance between the Canadian labor movement and the New Democratic Party (NDP) has experienced new stresses in recent years. Whereas the NDP was widely considered the political arm of the labor movement during the Keynesian post-war period, under neoliberalism, the relationship between most unions and the NDP has become more tactical and less cohesive. This article surveys contemporary party-union relationships in Canada and examines how changes in legislature affect these relationships and establishes the fact that these relationships are essential. The purpose of this article is to examine the relationship between organized labour and the New Democratic Party. As well as looking at the results
Paul Yuzyk, a Progressive Conservative Senator of Ukrainian descent, referred to Canada as "a multicultural nation" in his influential maiden speech in 1964, creating much national debate, and is remembered for his strong advocacy of the implementation of a multiculturalism policy.  On October 8, 1971, the Liberal government of Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau announced in the House of Commons that, after much deliberation, the policies of bilingualism and multiculturalism would be implemented in Canada.  When the Canadian constitution was patriated by Prime Minister Trudeau in 1982, one of its constituent documents was the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and section 27 of the Charter stipulates that the rights laid out in the document are to be interpreted in a manner consistent with the spirit of multiculturalism.  The Canadian Multiculturalism Act was introduced during the Progressive Conservative government of Brian Mulroney, and received Royal Assent on July 21, 1988.  On a practical level, a result of the multiculturalism Act was federal funds began to be distributed to ethnic groups to help them preserve their cultures, leading to such projects as the construction of community centres.
Historical Investigation Jennifer Xie 1/7/12 CHC2D7 Word Count: 1921 PART A On the night of Canada’s 2011 Federal Election, the approval rating of the Liberal Party was at a grim 18 percent. The more disturbing statistic, however was Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff’s approval rating, which, on the cusp of the election, was exactly the same as that of Green Party Leader Elizabeth May. However, May had not stirred out of her riding while Ignatieff had lost his seat, and with it, the election. Throughout most of Canadian history, the struggle for political dominance has been between the Liberals and Conservatives, with the Liberals labelled as “Canada’s natural governing party”. This election, however, has not only overseen
All these people have different races , cultures and ethnicities but they still strive to be a part of Canada , the biggest cultural mosaic . The increasingly multicultural population of Canada poses challenges of its own; we will have to manage this transition without becoming a country of isolated cultures. There is a definite danger that some unsavoury foreign conflicts and attitudes may cause tension as different ethnicities mingle. We have try hard and stay together else it all becomes a melting pot like USA and pur collective identity slowly melts away .
Regulations on Indigenous Tribes For many years, the indigenous peoples of Canada and the USA have been subjected to many policies and regulations set forth by the two governments. Since 1787 with the creation of the United States Constitution and growing colonizing power of the US and Canada, these indigenous people have been forced to change their systematic way of life. Although the first method was to have a singular goal, to live simultaneously and enforce a constant path of regulations towards the indigenous tribes, we know that hasn’t been the case. Not through very little burdening policy changes throughout the population, but through major shifts in federal actions, there have been debates whether these enforcements were done correctly. The initial growth of the US government stemmed largely from the American Revolution in 1775 when the United States was competing with Britain for the expansion of this territory.
The Quebec Student Protests is a good example of Canadian Political science because it demonstrates the role of Canadian government and their relationship with the public, and because concepts of Canadian political science can be applied to it. The three concepts that will be applied to the issue of Quebec Student Protests are Interest Groups, Violation of Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and Canadian Nation & Identity.
