Reflections on the Indian Act

Before we studied Indian Act in class I knew about the outcomes of the residential schools. How they were taken from their homes and taken away from their family. Also I knew how in the government they didn’t have people name but instead they had statics cards with number.

5 ideas I learned about the Indian Act are 

  1. I learned about how being First Nations in that time was a “bad” thing
  2. That some people didn’t marry for love they married for protection and to get out of being First Nation
  3. I learned that statics is still going on today ( the system)
  4. I learned how the alcohol addition had a huge impacted in the Indian Act
  5. I learned that there still reserves standing today

One question I have is: Is residential school standing today ( not open ) . 

I am going to use this information I learned to enhance my understanding.  Enhance  my understanding and then educate others around.

 

 

British Govern Quebec

As a British official, I realize there are many alternatives to governing Quebec. I chose the policy of Assimilation to ensure the colony is properly run.  With assimilation everyone is together, and you can see what one other are doing, because then you will have main control. You can gain population, so you will get more new resources and can share knowledge. But if you choose any other idea. They can always come back and plan to attacked etc. As I have outlined above, I believe the best policy of governing Quebec is Assimilation. This will ensure that the colony will remain under British control and provide wealth for our glorious country.
