Today, Ontario and Quebec have maintained their 24 member senatorial status. The four Western provinces have 6 members each. Nova Scotia and New Brunswick both have 10 seats. Prince Edward Island was given 4 out of the original 24 Maritime senators. Together, Newfoundland and Labrador have a total of 6 members. Finally, Nunavut, the Yukon and the Northwest Territories stand in the equation with 1 senator apiece. Along with the Senate`s original intentions, the principle of equality between the provinces is evidently lost. The Senate primarily fails because it was formerly created to balance out the representation by population which lies in the House of Commons however currently only seems to reinforce it. In fact, Canada’s central provinces, Ontario and Quebec, account for 60 percent of the seats in the House of Commons and almost half of the seats in the Senate at 46 percent.5 The inadequacy of regional representation is emphasized as the Canada West Foundation clearly states: “Canada is the only democratic federal system in the world in which the regions with the largest populations dominate both houses of the national legislature.“6 With an unelected Senate that no longer fulfills its role of equal regional representation and a House of Commons grounded on the representation of provinces proportional to their population, the legitimacy of Parliament has become a
Every year, the country of Canada receives over 16 million international visitors, and more than 7.5 million of those tourists visit Ontario, Canada, the country’s most dominant province. Many people hope to travel to Ontario to explore its wonderful attractions. Recently, I went to Ontario, Canada, and was lucky enough to tour Ontario and view its gorgeous sights.

Buffalo New York, a city in western new york located between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, two of the great lakes, was once known as an industrial capital in the twentieth century. The city has now shifted into a more sustainable lifestyle, taking the once industrial factories and transforming them into different attractions. As of today this is their sustainable triple bottom line of people, planet, and profit:
These challenges include unstable economic conditions, especially for communities tied to natural resources as was seen in the forest sector crisis. Also, limited employment opportunities often lead to youth out-migration and higher proportions of seniors. According to the analysis of 2001 Census data for migration, it was shown that communities with the lowest percentage of in-migrants tend to be Aboriginal and forest dependent, while communities with the highest percentage of in-migrants are in the southern parts of the region and based on mining. The Census Research stated that the economic growth in Northern Ontario has been significantly less than the provincial due to the declining of the population. The Northern Ontario’s population density is described as 1 person per kilometer, while Southern Ontario’s population density is 104 people per kilometer. Another major obstacle that faces the enterprises as well as the residents of Northern Ontario is the geographical isolation. There is a limited transportation options, and infrastructure constraints. There are many issues over high gas prices as well as high air transportation
The Division of a Province Ontario is such a vast province that many of its residents often refer to it as two separate entities: Southern Ontario and Northern Ontario. While these divisions may share a name and capital city, the similarities between them seemingly end there. Southern Ontario consists of millions of people from different cultures over-crowding towns like Cobourg, cities like Kingston, and metropolises like Toronto. Congestion on the 400 series highways and "Super" schools are a natural occurrence for many in the South. Northern Ontario is made up of a limited number of people, mainly of First Nations and French descent, living and working in small rural towns like Geraldton and cities like Thunder Bay. Barren, unmaintained "bush" roads, and schools of less than 200 students, are the way of life for the people of the North. Summer time in Southern Ontario is long, hot and humid;

Remember when the liberals promised to the additional medical services that never happened? Did you know that there are still only 27 doctors/100,000 people in Nunavut? This is clearly not enough and since we know that, we will send more physician! You see?Justin Trudeau and the liberals don't get it or know how it feels because they aren't in the same case but we are different and we will make an actual change.
It has now been over two, and a half years since us citizens have decided to nominate Justin Pierre James Trudeau as the 23rd Prime Minister of Canada. Justin Trudeau may be an appealing Prime Minister to many, but many Canadians are failing to understand that he is forbidding Canada to propel forward and to meet its true potential in many facets. Not many actions Justin Trudeau raised have affected Canada vastly in the past two years, at least not for the good. Trudeau has also been operating in contrast to his pledges such as the tax promises. ( Financial Post, 27 Sept. 2017.) Ever since November 2015 (when Trudeau was elected), citizens (especially middle class) had high hopes, and were lead to dismay, and over the course of time, began

At this point in time a new proposition has been offered by those within Upper Canada, a new idea meant to divide Canada even further. Upper Canada has gone on to show their intentions to divide the government according to the areas of Upper and Lower Canada. A government should be a unifying presence, yet many wouldn’t be too opposed to this as a government meant to focus on the affairs of the different conditions would sound rather beneficial, yet, this is where the problem lies.

Each and every one of the world's many nations is unique in its own way. No two nations are the same in terms of the way they live. Whether it is driving on the right or left side of the road, pronouncing words a certain way or using hand gestures to communicate different meanings, each nation of the world has something that allows it to stand out. This uniqueness can come from certain religions, cultural practices, geography, history or from a multitude of other reasons. Despite this, a unique nation usually gains its originality and identity from its people. The way the people interact, live, work, play and have come to exist dictate how others perceive them as a culture. Canada is a provocative country with a divergent population.
Where I live is one of the greatest neighborhoods in the city to live in; however it does have its draw backs. Importantly it has nearly everything a resident might want, beautiful picturesque scenery, proximity to shopping, and many of the cultural centers. Nevertheless the roads can be some of
