A normal day can turn into a day filled with icy cold snow and warm hot chocolate just by one call. One call that gives everyone around the school district a sigh of relief that they can curl up back in their comfy beds and sleep for an extra
Canada should pursue their interests in the Arctic to the fullest extent possible so as to satisfy their national interests, and retain the land that they already believe to be theirs. They are acting on their interests by exercising the power they have with acts such as building ports, and moving in military, their main goal to secure the land, as well as the ocean around it so as to ensure economic prosperity. Canada is asserting their control and ownership, trying to divert the other stakeholders involved in the imperialistic struggle for the Arctic. Though so far there has been no need for the situation to become physical, by moving military into the region, Canada has displayed their willingness to fight for the land. This has caused other states to realize that the land settlement may come to a physical altercation, and that there may be a need for military action in the future. One country that has already acted on the perceived threat is Russia, who has been trying to gain the land using physical force such as putting military in the island areas. Though so far they have only been trying to take resources from the land, they have recognized that
Firstly, Canada should stay together because we would lose money that we would gain from exports of natural resources and manufacturing industries. For example, the north provides resources such as golds, diamonds, petroleum and natural gases. The Northwest Territories’ oil industry exports about $552 million and contribute to the gross
Most of the people interviewed were wealthy celebrities that have not lived in Canada for many years. There is very little mention of the First Nations, Metis, or immigrants that have shaped Canada throughout the years, and only a few, if any, were interviewed. The Northwest Territories, Yukon Territories, Nunavut, and PEI were not included, and provinces like Saskatchewan and Manitoba were glossed over, each only getting a few minutes of screen time. Leaving out the upper provinces of Canada is a big issue because their way of life and opinion of Canada may be very different. They are often set aside and get little representation for their people in the government, and would mostly have nearly no say if it were not for groups such as the Arctic Council that allow them to weigh in on issues that affect their territory. The documentary also neglects deeper issues in Canada, such as Quebec separatism. No Quebec separatists were interviewed and when he asked the celebrities on their opinion on the subject, it was all just a “it would be nicer if the country stayed together” rhetoric. It did not take into account their history with the rest of Canada and how many separatists may feel alienated or discriminated by their own country. It also did not give differing opinions on the matter so the audience could decide for themselves. Along with that, even though
2) Why were winter celebrations cancelled in the early 1900s? Winter celebrations were cancelled in the early 1900s because the country needed immigrants and they noticed that winter was the heart of quebec and that we had a lot of winter images in Canada. So the Montreal Board of Trade voted to ban all winter carnivals. This is all because Canada is noticed as ice and cold and that discourages immargants to come here and steele in the cold.it gives them a image that they will be migrating to a very cold country that will be hard for them.
Vancouver, I heard is very similar to Toronto since I like Toronto a lot and Vancouver is similar to it that is why I wouldn’t mind living there. I would move there because the weather in Vancouver is less crazy then Toronto’s, it is also famous for Its beauty and
It has often been debated which country in the world is the best to live in. When comparing Canada to Australia, Chile, Ethiopia, Ukraine and Vietnam, it is obvious that Canada is one of the best countries in which to live. This is because it was tied for first in terms of percentage of residents with access to safe water, its life expectancy rate was the second highest, and lastly because it was second in terms of Human Development Index.

The 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics was a significant event for Canada because it was the first national event that happened in Canada. In addition to this, it showed people all across the world how good Canada was. Nevertheless, it showed that Canada was a developed nation that was able to hold an Olympic. Being a developed nation, it changed people’s perspective on Canada once it was live on television. It boomed the Canadian economy due to all the tourists that were coming to watch the winter Olympics. Therefore, this event is significant towards making Canada the country it is today.
Background: Northern Indigenous communities in the Arctic have been surviving off the land for thousands of years, using the natural resources for their livelihood. The population of about 400, 000 Indigenous have been affected by climate change and weather patterns, that have been dramatically shifting. The increasing temperatures have brought attention to the traditional and sacred land of the North, bringing awareness to the unbalanced sustainability. There is also a struggle for these Northern isolated communities to seek proper health attention that are caused by the impact of climate change. From the melting of permafrost, and loss of fresh water source, to the shoreline coastal erosion, hunting and fishing practices are affecting the economic and
It is not the ideal place to live if you have not been expose the cold. Growing up, us Canadians that resides on the west side of the country, speaks French. The eastside was not “lit” because they only speak English. Of course we had English 101 courses in school but that was not till High School, which I never attended because my mother wanted to move to the land where anything is possible. At first, the idea of moving fascinated me, but once I got here a reality check had hit me. Everyone that lived around were very stuck up and they thought that everyone else were intrigued with their lives. It did not take me much time to accommodate myself in the U.S, although everyone was very “stingy”, they never failed to show me lots of
Is Canada the best place to live in? Throughout history, Canada has been a great place to live in. There were many events that took place, some good, some...not so good, but in the end, Canada strived, and has been a great home for many cultures. Canada is indeed the
Portions of the United States experienced an exceptionally cold winter this year. Here in North Carolina we had three months of overnight temperature below freezing with temperatures in the 20s. I have lived in the Raleigh area for 25 years and have never experienced a winter so consistently cold with thick layers of ice on windshields every morning and frost on the roofs of homes that remained frozen until the middle of the morning. The act of cleaning up snow and ice brought back memories of growing up in the 1960s in the far north of New Jersey where temperatures remained below freezing for months and the ice on local lakes was solid enough to support the weight of a tractor to plow away the snow so everyone could ice skate, and we
College students are unique people. The majority of incoming college freshman are young and inexperienced human beings who just got pushed out of their nest by their eager mother birds. College is like getting pushed out of a nest: many will either learn to fly or will fall hard to the ground. Although the ground may be a nice place to settle, earning a degree allows people to fly and explore the world of furthering their education. What about the college students who are being pushed out of a nest into the freezing cold of Alaska? With living expenses being so high, it’s no wonder a mother bird would push her baby birds out to save money on the monthly gas and electric bills. The best solution to battle the high cost of living in Alaska for students is that more Alaskan college students should be living in igloos this coming winter. Incoming college freshman in Alaska should be required to live in igloos.
