The first reason that shows that Canada has become a “just society” is the changes to women’s legal rights. Since the 1970s, many women have stepped up to the work of politics. Several instances include Kim Campbell, the first woman to become the prime minister of Canada,1 Kathleen Wynne, the first premier of Canada to be lesbian,2 Beverley McLachlin, the “first female chief of justice of the Supreme Court of Canada,”3 and Catherine Callbeck, the second female provincial premiere and first woman to win
A Professional Soldier is someone that makes a commitment of servitude to his or her country. An individual willing to adapt to the nation’s ever-changing needs. A soldier that makes a lifelong commitment to learning and becoming a professional in the Army. The Profession of Arms in the Army means to establish firm ground work of character, ethics and unmatched adaptability in times of warfare. Developing the American Soldier and understanding the Profession of Arms will give insight to how it will benefit future generations in the Army.
The classification of what a "person" was in the eyes of the government became a threshold test of women's equality. The Person’s Case has continued to empower women all across Canada for the past 88 years and has brought inspiration to Canadian citizens to fight for social economic equality for women. The impacts the Persons Case have had on Canada keep growing, a recent example of this is in 2015 Prime Minister Trudeau decided to form Canada's 1st gender-balanced cabinet. The cabinet ministers include 15 women and 15 men. Many of the female ministers have been key roles such as, formal journalist Chrystie Freeland has been put in charge of international trade.

The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) are a unique institution consisting of a wide cross section of our nation’s population. It is due to this vast representation of cultural and regional upbringings that there lies a requirement for an integration process into military life. In this paper I will discuss some training procedures utilized during my basic recruit school training in Cornwallis, Nova Scotia, and the theories and models of psychology and behaviour they were based upon.

For women criticism by the public was common because they were not home with their children. When looking at the loss of privacy, it is more definite when someone’s campaigns turn ugly. Especially single women feel this threatening of loss of privacy. Women are always getting asked questions that pertain to the home and family. Nothing seems to sell like the privacy of women politicians (page 29). When women fail, they tend to take it personally. Madeleine struggled in 1981 when she first ran for governor and lost. She said she was devastated. Women struggle to make losing less personal and tend to let it affect their lives.
4. The course of action I would take after reading this article is if Justin Trudeau hired somebody who was going to be a politician and would want to do a “Sponsorship Program,” then I would research this person to see if they would be a trustful worker for this program and job. If Justin Trudeau would like to hire new people, we should have to vote on whether they would be excellent or not excellent for this position. Also they should write a speech and present it either on social media, televisions, etc. So people can tell if they're worthy or not, and select the best candidate as
In theory, the Parliament is the most important institution in the Canadian government and all members of the parliament are equal. The Prime Minister is supposed to be primus inter pares, meaning first among equals. But over the years, the cabinet has become more institutionalized and less departmentalized. Hence the Prime Minister’s power has increased over the years. Canada is the one of the most decentralized federations in the
Gender inequality has been a long part of Canada’s history with men being the dominant decision makers. Women have had to fight long hard battles and overcome numerous obstacles to prove themselves and demonstrate that they are equal to men and not inferior. Over the course of a century women have achieved suffrage and have become increasingly visible in the political and economic sectors. Despite all the achievements women have made barriers remain in effect leaving women at a social, economic and political disadvantage even in the twenty-first century. The primary obstacles in achieving gender equality are the noticeable absence of women in authoritative economic and political positions, unfair social stereotypes that are still
Since the second youngest Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was elected, his spouse, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, also got attention, and has volunteered for lots of charitable events. However, in an interview, she said, “I’d love to be everywhere, but I can’t. I have three children and a husband who is the Prime Minister. I need help. I need a team to help me serve the people.” (LAVOIE) Because of this, many people realized that she is surrounded by bulging schedule that she can’t even handle her children. Although these days, people who try to understand women’s point of view is tend to be seen open-minded or considerate people, the idea that she should receive extra staff to help her promote the nation is an improper solution that can cause many problems.
Our society has the belief that women have always been portrayed as weak, emotional, and powerless. Throughout this article by Tavia Grant, it shows how women do not get the same opportunities men receive. Statistically shown, women are still earning less money than men regardless to the amount of education they possess (Grant). Women are accepted to hold obligations regarding family tasks while the men do the providing in the family. The article shows the disadvantages women have in Canada compared to men, however, it also shows gender inequality and gender discrimination.
A free private vacation to the Bahamas with your family and friends, sounds almost too good to be true, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently found this out first hand. After returning from his luxurious holiday on Aga Khan’s private Bahamas island in January 2017, the media outlets were booming with many articles criticizing his actions and divulging the public with the Conflict of Interest Act. One passage in particular had many people in a frenzy, “Rule 12 in the Act states, “No minister of the Crown, minister of state or parliamentary secretary, no member of his or her family and no ministerial adviser or ministerial staff shall accept travel on non-commercial chartered
I had no idea what I had gotten myself into when I signed that dotted line. I stared out of the bus’s window, stomach in knots afraid she would catch me looking. I decided to put my head back down into my green laundry bag and take a nap. “Maybe it would be as bad as I think it will be,” I said to myself trying to calm my nerves. I was wrong.
In addition to the gap in political involvement there are numerous evident inequalities for Canadian women that stress the need to continue the feminist movement. The Canadian human rights
