This left many people without anything at all, and so they went to Canada with nothing. They were the subjects of political prejudice, and generally were hated because of their acceptance of the British laws and taxation. Most people who did leave were the rich people or those people connected to the crown, because if the British were the reason you were rich or popular, why take chances and leave them? The Black Loyalists left because they were offered freedom,
The Military service act was passed so the Canadian government could provide more troops to support its Allied countries. This decision can be argued as negative for a few different causes. First, Prime Minster Borden was elected on a policy that he would not imply conscription but when the Canadian military began to run low on soldiers he implied a conscription policy forcing able bodied Canadians from 20-45 to join the military. Another reason is that, this decision caused a conflict between French and English Canadians because Quebec did not feel compelled to help a country they weren’t tied to. Thirdly, after the policy was passed riots broke out in Montreal and Quebec City.
Rachel Kay How accurate is it to say Frederick William IV was responsible for the failure of the Frankfurt Parliament? The Frankfurt Parliament was established to create freedom of press, German citizenship for all, fair taxation, equality of political rights and to create a unified Germany. However, countries like Austria greatly opposed it. Frederick William IV could be seen as responsible for the failure of the Frankfurt Parliament because he refused to accept any form of leadership and made it clear he distrusted the ‘gentlemen of Frankfurt’. However, many other factors played a role in the demise of the Parliament such as the fact that they were ill-organised, the lack of popular support and their inability to enforce decisions.
Hence, Louis Riel can be both hero or traitor. To be a hero or a traitor are the two extremely opposite course, but to a number of people, Louis Riel was a madman and a traitor. Stopping the government’s plan on building the trans-continental railway is a negative action to the majority of population in Canada, especially the traders. Though there was no bloodshed in the Red River Rebellion, Riel did execute one unruly prisoner named Thomas Scott. This execution led him into the trial, and since then the great “folk hero” was also seen as a petty criminal.
Alan Sources Analysis Essay In source one, Charles Hanley is trying to imply that Canada is not a nation as where America and France are. Canada is being recognized as a nation only by its existence as a country, but not in the point of views from others, such as Canadians. This diverse country does not have anything in common that the Canadian citizens share, for instance; language (most people speak differently), religion and culture (everyone has different beliefs and values), meaning that Canada is not united as one nation; it is multicultural, where different people with different values live in one area. In source two, Andrew Coyne is trying to imply that Canada shouldn’t
Person Percy Mr. Mister Essay #3 August 1st, 2013 American Ethics Stereotypes are something that we all hate, all are aware of, yet somehow, all have. Being Americans we sometimes allow ourselves to get so isolated as to think that we only hold stereotypes of ourselves and of other nationalities as a whole. However, what we fail to acknowledge is that we are not the only country who maintain such stereotypes on this Earth. As a matter of fact, when comparing the stereotypical “American” to citizens of foreign nations one could make a strong argument that we as a society actually have the worst stereotypes. Mexico, is one of these countries that strongly holds a negative view of the stereotypical Amrican.
Brayden Stamp Ms. Evans ENG 4U1 Final Copy Why Fighting in Hockey Should Stay There is no sporting event which brings a crowd to its feet, and creates an atmospheric explosion quite like that of an ice hockey fight. Many view ice hockey as teeming with brutality and unnecessary violence, and believe the stereotype that hockey players are nothing but goons who enjoy seeing their own blood. However, fighting within hockey is a form of sanctioned violence, and has been deemed acceptable since the inception of the NHL in 1917. A very recent political uproar has taken place within the hockey world, as more and more people in the hockey world are pushing to have fighting completely removed from the game.

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
The Great Liberal Prime Ministers of Canada Many people believe the prime ministers have a lot of power and they can do what ever they want. That is not necessarily true. “They think a prime minister has much power. He doesn't even have influence." Mackenzie King, 1950.
