SS10 Reflections Nov.26

After studying, I learn something more about the history of Canadian and first nations people, and some mistake that Canada government made. Canada is not as “so” free as people know. Like racism in 1900-1914, and inequality in women’s societies, whether it should be free to fall in love, extends to the reconciliation between the First Nations and the Canadian people. All of them represent the progress and development of Canada, but the reconciliation between the First Nations and the Canadian people is not as simple as we think.

The people of Canada, for the First Nations, have too much to owe them. All kinds of laws indicate that the Canadian people were unfair to the First Nations at that time, as a residential school. In residential schools, the First Nations are strictly controlled and can only communicate in English and write in Latin. How can they be considered a white person? These deprived of their own culture, their own language, and even gradually let them forget their family because they were taken away by the residential school when they were very young. Although the Canadian government later apologized to the people of the First Nations, their practices were not sincere. They never talked face-to-face with the leaders of the First Nations. This is not an act of apology.

Free choice of the object of love and marriage, and the freedom to choose the way the two sides interact is actually very good, like the issue of homosexuality, I think that if you look at it a little, the person I like may just be a woman or a man like me. It’s not so much that it’s not so much. Too many tube bundles will have a rebellious mentality, leading to an unhealthy body and mind. We should not discriminate against homosexuals. It is not a mistake in itself. It’s just that the person you like happens to be the same sex as you.

For our project, I am still not sure what I want to do, and is a historical event to draw a time period, or is it necessary to describe all the changes that have taken place in my paintings? I am not very sure

 

Reconciliation Social Task

A piece of art that will help foster reconciliation.

I chose Dreamcatcher as a symbol of the Indians, and Beaver is a symbol of Canada. The two combine to express the desire for reconciliation. Because native Indians love nature very much, I painted the beavers on behalf of Canada green. The Canadian government, on the other hand, focuses on the development of science and technology and a happy and beautiful life. It is a dreamy blue-violet that represents the Indian dream net. The exchange of two different representative colors also means that the two truly agree with each other and their ideas. Under the beaver, I also wrote the Canadian abbreviation CA in red. It is written in red because the representative color of the Canadian flag is red. Only the two are closely related, identify each other, and cooperate with each other to be truly complete Canada.

The people of the First Nations, who love nature and their unique traditional culture, are now developing the country-Canada, and need to be integrated, and it is also necessary for Canada to be clear. People and the government should correctly treat history and the mistakes made in the past for the First Nations, and the consequences and injuries that have not been granted to the First Nations for a reasonable and equal status. Although the two sides may have reconciled, the pain that history brought to the First Nations is not something that can be erased in a short time.

Socials 10 Reflections Nov.19

After learning, we know that in Canada we have discrimination before  1914. For example, the residential school, founded in the 19th century, has oppressed countless First Nations, a shadow that Canadians are lingering. In the British Columbia BC Asia Exclusion League, it announced that it would launch a campaign for “White Canada” to incite racial riots in Vancouver. In 1923, the Canadian government imposed a head tax on the Chinese through the Immigration Act (immigration law), effectively preventing more Chinese from immigrating to Canada. For decades, the racism problems in Canada have changed dramatically, but racial discrimination will never disappear,  but people of different races can get together and make each other more Understand and respect each other. In my opinion, the number of immigrants today is not a problem, and immigrants within a controlled number can help improve the economy, develop diversified jobs, and provide more jobs.

In the 20th century, the awareness of gender equality in Canadian society was revealed. In fact, in the same time, similar things happened in China. Like my great-grandmother, she can only do everything in her home at home, like washing and cooking with children. In his time, she was not allowed to go out to work. This is why she is very strict with my grandmother. She desperately saved money, so that her grandmother got a good education, so that she can learn medicine, and also asked her to return to many things that only men, such as repairing light bulbs, etc. And it’s not just women who should cook. At that time, my grandfather cooks and takes children. But when my grandfather was a child, they still had the old thoughts of patriarchal women. They felt that men can earn more money, can support a home, can do more physical work, and can go out to fight to protect the family, so they are even more Like boys.

Nowadays, women still have places that are not treated fairly, such as bus drivers, mostly male drivers, and most famous scientists are male. But in fact, the participation of women has greatly promoted the development of economy and technology. Women’s care, thoughtfulness, and patience are indispensable qualities in today’s work and social interaction.

Canada’s Political Parties

New Democratic Party

An emotional Jagmeet Singh promises to fight for Canadians facing unstable work and to oppose the ‘politics of division’ after winning the federal NDP leadership in Toronto in 2017

” we need to focus on the fact that we have a government that’s talking about legalization that hasn’t immediately decriminalized possession is completely offensive completely unacceptable right now there are people that are currently being charged, being convicted, and being imprisoned for an offense that will become legal. That’s something the government should have done immediately. Their priorities on this file are completely wrong, they need to have immediately decriminalized and they’ve shown a lack of leadership in terms of how to move forward  on this issue”( xx~2:37)

I think they are the left wing. Because New Democratic Party Pay more attention to the pursuit of social justice, advocate equal rights of citizens, and oppose force. And I totally agree with them. For myself do not advocate the use of force and violence to solve problems, but can solve things through more peaceful means. A glimpse of violence will only show that you want to control the other side, which will create a level difference and bring war and disaster. However, people should be equal, they have the right to protect their own security and interests, and the government is the party that helps citizens.

But I don’t think he really plans to protect the Canadian border from illegal infringement from the United States. There is also no plan to say how he intends to deal with people who have entered the country illegally. They all talk about the protection of human rights, but they have largely deprived us of our most basic rights, such as freedom of speech, privacy, property rights, and the right to defend ourselves with only a few examples.

And I think Canadian citizens what they want is freedom of speech back, the flooding of immigrants from the middle east to stop, actual debate and to actually talk each otherther instead of the left just calling everyone who disagrees with them

 

 

 

 

Social 10 Reflection – Oct.15

Social 10 Reflection – Oct.15

Nowadays, the waste of resources has become more and more serious. Every year, we always see reports from various experts on source wasting. Wrapping paper for various things, plastics, paper bags, cans, and the waste of food. Only people will be wasting? What about nature? Such as Trees lose leaves, flowers drop petals, snakes shed skin, birds lose feathers, people brush out old hair. All animals poop. And eventually, all living things die is kind of waste. The root cause I feel is overpopulation, With the development of science and technology, people’s lives are more and more convenient, basically solved by money, so people are more and more concerned about the environment they depend on. However,  with the adequacy of technology, it is possible to have new technologies to solve food problems or discover new renewable energy sources.

Judging from the voting method of the election, I think that the election in Canada is still very human. You can choose to reconnect instead of re-electing for two sessions. Although the elections in Canada have been perfected, as I said in class, I think “First Past the Post” is not the fairest and best solution for citizens who vote in Canada. I personally prefer the Single transferable vote. In fact, I think this way is very similar to the feeling of the Chinese election cadre or the representative of the department. I think this is a good way to vote because for this system Fewer votes are “wasted,” and most voters can point to a representative they helped elect. In addition, Votes take much longer to be counted and can be influenced, similarly to ranked voting, by voters who simply list favorites in the order names appear on the ballot. 

Reflection #4 Oct.9th

Reflection #4 Oct.9th

Through study, we know that only 10% of the earth is land, and this 10% of the land may not necessarily be suitable for people to live in. Although we only have these places, our population has always been high. As time goes by, the density of the population is increasing year by year. Rapid population growth has also brought a series of hazards, such as climate change and waste. Different people have different views on climate change. The pessimists claimed that population would soon outstrip food supply, leading to famine, disease, and social disorder. Some thinkers named neo-Malthusians predict that due to global warming, shortage of cultivated land, freshwater conflicts, reduced fish stocks, and the world’s poorest developing countries will exceed the population in the next 50 years. The optimists have faith in mankind’s ability to find innovations, such as solar and wind energy, that will increase Earth’s carrying capacity. Although I know that we should increase the new generation to ease the aging, more and more people have also brought many resource problems, such as kindergarten enrollment, lack of medical staff, and the employment problems faced, these are all disadvantages of the population.

I think it is because of the rapid increase in population that it led to climate change and waste. When people breathe, they will emit CO2, and a large number of people will discharge a large amount of CO2, which is one of the causes of climate change. With the rapid development of material life, people’s lives are more and more convenient, followed by widespread waste: like coffee cups, beverage bottles, various papers, and food discarded everywhere. Nowadays, more and more people and businesses are starting to like plastic bags, and there are still many products that are over-packaged. A plastic bag is a non-degradable material, and it takes a long time to degrade it, but the time to degrade it is far less than the time it takes to produce it. I know that plastic bags are very convenient and fast to use, but in order to solve environmental problems, I think we should cut off the production of plastics at the source, so people will use more environmentally friendly canvas bags; in the process, you can try to put plastic bags. Change to a paper bag because the paper is a recyclable item. I think that in order to avoid the waste of food, we can take a little less from the pot every time so that the things in the pot will not be polluted, it is easier to save.

But the above three issues are not too bad for the poor and war-torn countries, because they are still asking for poverty and peace, and there is still energy to manage those, so in order to solve the above problems, the first Steps to do to solve the problem of poverty and war.
