In 1640 Massachusetts law required settlers to help their fellow Indian neighbors, but this friendly gesture was coupled with stern provisos.

The government of that time was careless about people’s opinion and made decisions which were considered unfair by citizens of Canada. Due to the government’s carelessness and unfairness Canadians should not be proud of Canada because of how difficult internal conflicts were handled such as the On-to-Ottawa Trek, October Crisis, and the passing of Bill 101.
