In the 1920’s, Canada introduced higher tariffs on their products exporting, to protect Canadian made products. They also introduced the tariffs to make a little bit more money compared to the other country’s goods. However, like the idea of buying stocks, this backfired.  As a result of increasing tariffs, many countries, mostly in Europe had decided not to trade or import of Canada’s goods. The increase in the tariffs meant that the country had no need of such a good, if it would be easily and cheaply made in the country.
Conscription is a method used by many nations to ensure that the troops are replenished as needed (Granastein, Jones). In Canada however, there was some debate on whether or not we should even be involved in this war so Conscription was not a first choice by any means. The problem was that Canada was considered an ally to Great Britain and since Great Britain was in the midst of the conflict (Guay), Canada was expected to jump in. Many in Canada however didn’t believe we should even be allies of Great Britain, especially in a war taking place on another continent. These people who were against involvement were mostly Francophone.
Confederation: Reaction from the Colonies Nova Scotia When Nova Scotian delegates like Charles Tupper returned home from the Quebec Conference, they were met with trouble. Opposition leaders, especially Joseph Howe, were stirring up hostility against a union. One of the 72 resolutions was to grant a subsidy (financial support) based on population to each of the provinces from the central government every year and Nova Scotia’s portion only amounted to forty cents per person. Joseph Howe and many others objected to this agreement saying, “Tupper has sold us out to central Canada for a grant of forty cents per person – the price of a sheepskin.” They were worried that the Canadians would dominate the new government because of their size and
However this may have spooked Crippen as they left for Canada which meant it may have made the investigation harder and therefore wasn’t actually an effective method. The next thing that police did in the investigation was using the press in order to get the public’s attention. The police offered a £250 (around £80000 today) reward for anyone who could identify Crippen. This meant that posters went up everywhere. This was an extremely effective method because it created public interest and without that I don’t think the captain of the SS Montrose would have been able to send the telegram which led to the arrest of Hawley Crippin on the 31st July
Canada asks, “If millions of students were failing back then, and students are still failing now, why haven’t we done anything to change that?” (Canada, TED Talks). To make his point, he touches on the subject that the business plan for teaching hasn’t changed. If you were to ask a teacher now how they are planning on teaching their incoming students this year, they would answer back with, “I will teach them the same way I did last year.” Well, if students are failing, why teach the same way? As Canada points out, “No one seems to understand brain development so they are just going to teach the way they know how and hope that the student comprehends” (Canada, TED
What was the reason behind all this?, what was the reason behind all that happened in Vancouver?, racism, pure racism, because the people of Vancouver thought that the Indians were going to come into Vancouver and take over factories, mills, and lumber yards so the government proposed a new act called the Immigration Act which allowed no Indians in Canada unless they took a direct passage from there original country to Canada, which was impossible, so in other words Indians weren’t allowed in Canada, but Gurdit Singh decided to challenge the new Immigration act and send 394 Sikh Immigrants from Hong Kong to Vancouver on a ship called the Komagata Maru, and just because of that, just because of Gurdit Singh’s Idea to try and challenge the Canadian Government’s Idea of proposing a new Immigration Act. We now have Indians in Canada rather than just having Canadians, Chinese, and Japanese in Canada, and Indians in
Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is "prepared to take some downtime," according to Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly. "We're hearing that he's prepared to take some downtime, not as much as people would like, but it's a start. I'd rather have that than defiant rejection," Kelly said Friday to CBC News. "Most members of council would prefer a longer interlude, but even this incremental step indicates progress. I'd rather have that than nothing," he added.
Canada has 4 main regions-Northern, Central, Western and Atlantic. It's a different experience living in each area. Factors that affect one may not affect another. Therefore, growing up or residing in one place will shape the way you look and feel about the world around you, so much so, that a Canadian from a different area may have contrasting outlooks. For example, many citizens of Quebec feel a strong anger towards the rest of the country because of the predominantly British influence that Canada was founded on, and because French views are often downplayed.
There is a historical attachment to this issue as Canadians have always been a “branch plant” of another country, namely England and France. Even from an early stage, the Canadian culture has never had the chance to flourish as it has been eclipsed by another powerful foreign culture. As a result, for years, a student in Ontario would helplessly study Shakespeare and other famous British writers. Today, they may even also study
In 1860 to 1923, eleven treaties were made between the Native Americans and the Crown of England. These treaties had changed the way of life in the wrong direction. Each treaty that had been formed, slowly took what the Native Americans had and gave it to the Crown of England. Treaty no.1&2 had been described as taking Manitoba (from then) and land around there to begin the expansion and settlement to create the railroad. Treaty no.3 had the Saulteaux tribe surrendering title to an area of 14,245,000 hectares, so that Canada acquired more land for agriculture and continuing the process of of the railroad.
