But O'Connor insists that a queasy public need not fear that Canadian troops there are being drawn into ever-increasing jeopardy. "Our role in Afghanistan is not to conduct combat operations," he said. "The overall role of the military is to provide a security environment for the people. Now, some of that may be rooting out insurgents, but we're not there primarily for combat operations." Far from going on the offensive, O'Connor stressed, Canadian troops are mainly expected to meet with local leaders, interact with ordinary Afghans, help train Afghanistan's forces, and generally enhance safety.
Since the 1960s till now campaign for Quebec’s sovereignty has been a big issue in Canada. However, Canada crossed the movement. Also Canada’s alliance, the United States views this issue with its own notions. They keep insist that there are no meanings and benefits Quebec become one of the sovereign nations. Quebecers oppose the notion, of course, and state there are meanings and evidences Quebec can be independence.
It is for the following reasons that I believe the term “”rebellion” should be corrected to “resistance”. The Red River Resistance was the result of the Canadian Government’s selfish desires for land. Without consent of the Métis, John A Macdonald purchased Rupert’s Land, the land of the Métis. Discontent, the Métis seized weapons from the Government to defend themselves during a rebellion against the Government. Riel and the Métis had no intention of rebellion; in fact, he was not opposed to the idea of Confederation as long as the Métis were granted a voice in parliament.
The government gains access to personal information through social media, online databases, and even cell phone records from service providers.

Our constitutional rights are not supposed to be changed or taken away from us, and if the government were to begin doing this now, who is to say that they will not try and change other constitutional rights based on similar arguments. The U.S. is not the only country dealing with similar situations. According to Hammond in his article, “European Civil Rights Groups Urge Parliament to Act on 'Lawless Spying’”, “A pair of European civil society groups has urged the European Parliament to take steps to end the ‘lawless spying on individuals around the globe’.” This is not just a problem in our country, but one around the globe.
The consumers of technology, the debate lies with the social behaviour change over the last decades. Zizi Papacharissi and Emily Easton (2013) argues in order for society to move forward, change through habitual process will break old habits to create new modes for the future. Further elaborating current media is one reason for constant change in evolution, there is no one entity to blame but the evolving nature of each person will be influenced with the media in some way. It’s not just the media that is changing how we view and act in life, other factors include friends, family, teachers, culture, religion, living locality and many more. But in general, the media will be
The deep problem is rooted in the fact that people are selfish and need themselves and their things protected and are willing to make sacrifices to make sure that happens. Marcus talks to his father about how the government is crushing the whole point of living for the idea of security, he says, “This sounds like you’re saying that national security is more important than the Constitution.” In a recent CNBC article, they were talking about the Apple vs FBI case. This case brought to question the line of freedom and security. A perfect example on this topic. Apple did not give the FBI the password software because it would cripple the password fabric of americans.
Chapter P-21 is our Canadian privacy act, “An Act to extend the present laws of Canada that protect the privacy of individuals and that provide individuals with a right of access to personal information about themselves.” (Department of Justice, 2004) Upon reading through all the exemptions and exceptions I found no claim to the exception of piracy. So when Verizon wireless advised their subscribers to obtain legal assistance against the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), this sparked the issue of whether the handing over of the list had violated the privacy act. It was best put by one of the anti-piracy organizations (Business Software Alliance), “Advances in new technology are dependent upon strong intellectual property protection.” (BSA) Creations of the mind such as: inventions, literary and artistic works used in commerce have begged the ... ... middle of paper ... ...-11-privacy_x.htm Legal Day. “Internet Piracy” November 2004. 18 Nov. 2004 http://www.legalday.co.uk/current/piracy.htm Mark, Ward.
(Soniak,2012, para1). Some people may argue that, it is impossible for Britain to invade any countries in present day, but keep in mind we never know what will happen next in the world. Canada as a country does not want to cause troubles and take away other countries’ freedom and their own identities. Canada did not enter into World War one voluntarily, instead due to the relationship with Britain, Canada entered automatically. During the war, millions of Canadians volunteered to sign up for the war and not only represent for Canada, but also Britain.
Tremblay then moves on to say, that U.S Department of Commerce would like to deregulate the communications industry and how horrible this would be for Canada . He points out that once this happens the U.S will pressure Canada to do the same. Yet, he seems to forget that Canada is a sovereign nation that does not have to give in to U.S pressure. Canada sets its own policies without being influenced by others. It has and will always be this way.

At the same time, guns intimidate; guns maim; and guns kill. It is precisely because of this paradox that guns are used for good as well as evil- that controversy surrounds government efforts at gun control.” It is clear that the new firearms legislation is looking out only for the best interests of the citizens of Canada. Public safety and well-being undoubtedly takes precedence to a traditional gun culture. The argument by pro-gun advocates that licensing and registering firearms will turn them into criminals is invalid since guns have the potential to seriously injure and kill people and thus, should be treated with caution and special care.
