1: The Canadian Identity is the stuff that all Canadian's have in common,
it's like we invented hockey so that is considered part of our identity. We
also invented Basketball but the U.s. took that away from us by exploting it
and saying that because the man was in the U.s. it was not Canadian, but for
the people that know they realize that our identity is falling apart because the
U.s. is a much bigger country so they have more power.
2: The thing that create our identity our the sports we invented, the
way we talk (eh), the courtesy that we have towards other countries, the food we
eat, and even the prices we have. More stuff that makes our identity are the
amount of racism in our country compared to the U.S. , also the beauty of the
land compared to the overpopulated cities in the U.s. We have the Rocky
mountains and many other clean and famous landmarks. Also the crime rate is
alot lower than in the U.s., and also unlike them we have free health care and
a lower pollution rate.
3: Canada to me is the best place to live in because we have beautiful
landmarks, we have free health care that helps my family alot because of my
asthma, we also have a government and a large amount of people that are nice to
other countries and are less hated. One main thing known about Canada is that
we are a center for sports, we also have less racism than the U.s., because if a
black child walked into a school in the U.s. 30 years ago he would be made fun
of called names and even failed by the teachers because of his skin color. But
back in the 1800's black people thought of Canada as the free land.
4: I think Canada and the U.s are very different because, we have way
less violence, we have less pollution, we are more friendlier to our neibouring
countries, we have less pollution and free health care for that matter. Most of
the popular sports know in days us Canadian's invented even though the U.s.
tries to say they might have, we are more of a free country than the U.s. and
we aren't even as close to as racist then them.
5: Canada and the U.s. are the same because, the businesses from the
U.S. are coming to Canada and putting the Canadian buissnesses bankrupt. Also
the T.v. sations from the U.s. are on almost all the T.

- Current policies The current issue of inadequacy of social inclusion of recent elderly immigrants in Canadian is directly related to the lack of a long-term, multi-dimensional and pan-Canadian vision of the settlement process. The settlement journey for immigrants is one that lasts a lifetime and extends into the second generation, and our public policy response must accept this fundamental reality. The Canadian Citizenship and Immigration has put in place some services for the newcomers to Canada like Newcomer Children and Youth in the Schools....

- Multiculturalism and the Canadian identity. Introduction What is Canada. What is a Canadian. Canada, to employ Voltaire's analogy, is nothing but “a few acres of snow.”. Of course, the philosopher spoke of New France, when he made that analogy. More recently, a former Prime Minister, Joe Clark, said that the country was nothing but a “community of communities”. Both these images have helped us, in one way or another, try to interpret what could define this country. On the other hand, a Canadian could be a beer, a hockey-playing beaver or even a canoe floating in a summer day's sunset.... [tags: Religious Symbol, Canadian Culture]

The Second American Revolution": Expressions of Canadian Identity in News Coverage at the Outbreak of the United States Civil War
- In this paper, I will discuss Brian Gabrial’s article, “The Second Revolution”: Expressions of Canadian Identity in News Coverage at the Outbreak of the United States Civil War. Gabrial’s article is about how the Canadian identity was challenged by the American Civil War. In particular, he argues that Canadian identity is significant in five important themes: the importance of British identity, antipathy toward Americanism and suspicion of American democracy, a well-grounded fear of American militarism, a patronizing sympathy for Americans in crisis and liberal and conservative political threads....

- A sheet of paper can wield more power than an army. In Wayson Choy’s novel All That Matters paper’s power is portrayed as a double-edged sword; where it acts both as a catalyst for change and opportunity, but also as a tool to imprison and constrain individuals. Although paper “represents a significant tool of diasporic mobility” states literary critic Alena Chercover in her analysis of Wayson Choy’s All That Matters, she argues that there is a significant trade-off in its ability to facilitate “survival in the diaspora, [as] it often carries a steep price”(12)....

- Every person, or group of people, has an identity and a culture. An ‘identity’ is the image that one project out into the rest of the world, and ‘culture’ is the image which one has of themselves. Countries are no exception; every country over their course of history has created an identity and culture for themselves. It has been said that the worst act one could perform on another would be to strip them of their identity, and deny them of their culture. This is why, in order for a country to become a great nation, their culture and identity must be formed so that it is able to strive.... [tags: Canadian Identity, Film Industry]

- ... These were two of the many restrictions the students had to face. Breaking one of the rules would mean being starved, humiliated, or emotionally and physically abused. To name the few, witnessing cultural practices would result to sticking needles in their tongues, or a beating with a leather whip. Many results after the schools' closing suggested that some children even experienced sexual abuse. The environment the kids spent their childhoods in was poor. Diseases spread from the unsanitary conditions and were given improper care.... [tags: aboriginal culture, languages]

- In Canadian history it is quite evident we are influenced heavily by the much stronger nations around us. Therefore our own content in Canada is sometimes overshadowed by other cultures, specifically with regards to the United States who have a big influence on our cultural industries. Pierre Trudeau expressed the feeling Canadians have with this co-existence, "Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly or temperate the beast, one is affected by every twitch and grunt." Some may argue that Canada should not continue to develop regulations to protect its cultural industries....

- Throughout Canada’s relatively short existence we have created quite a reputation for ourselves. Our great nation is known for many things , and I am proud to say that most are positive. Does Canada have a strong national identity. Anyone can see the answer is yes. Just take a look at the facts. For example, we are renowned for our peacekeepers and no other country is considered more peaceful. Without a doubt this is the type of identity we should work to keep. The first thing we should examine is what exactly is meant by “strong national identity”.... [tags: essays research papers fc]

shows and movies are twice as violent as our's and they even try to cut down
the amount of violence in the shows before their broadcast. Also the U.s. are
coming to the leagues that started off being Canadian, and we let them because
they are way more dominant then us. Even though our violence level is lower than
their's it's getting pretty high and our gangs are multiplying very fast.
6: If Canada wants to keep a good country for the future we must, start
by cutting down the amount of pollution, also we have to clean up all the
graffiti and the bad influences painted on the walls, we also have to try to
cut down the violence level that's on T.V. because that's just ruining the
minds of the youth. We also should be more effective on the laws in the country
like teens not smoking cigarettes or marijuana. I think if Canada changed and
showed the rest of the world that we're perfect then the rest of the world would
start to think about themselves.
