Socials 10 Reconciliation Art

Read from the bottom to the top.

It is a timeline shown on a totem pole showing when when the British arrived in North America, attacked the native people, put them under their control, and put their children into residential schools, then Stephen Harper gave a reconciliation speech and the government of Canada attempted to make immense.

Socials 10: Liberal UN Speech


Find a speech/interview from the party leader of the party you side with (or a minister)

1.) Give the context of the speech (where, when, why

Where:  United Nations General Assembly in New York

When: Sep 21, 2017

Why: To discuss Indigenous reconciliation, climate change and trade.

2.) Summarize the speech

Justin Trudeau talks about the past of the Indigenous people and their challenges such as residential schools and discrimination. He talks about how the world contributes to climate change and how no one can escape it. He talks about education being more accessible and to fix poverty and discrimination.

3.) What do they say that reveals if they are left or right wing? (provide the quotes and timestamps)

Justin Trudeau seems to be more left wing than right wing because he is in favour of community over independence, against discrimination, and will fight for causes around this. He wants to help others in a way that will benefit everyone and even help the rest of the world.

4.) Do you agree with their statements? Explain why or why not

I feel that many of his statements are useful and needed but become repetitive during this speech. Things concerning discrimination may already be fixed and I feel that he is almost holding a grudge towards the past and what has happened, but most of his statements are justified and more about the future.



Post-Secondary Event Reflection

The 3 post-secondary schools that I was most interested in were Langara because of their arts and science programs, I also liked Capilano college because of their theatre arts programs like becoming a director or set designer, I thought that the University of Manitoba was great too because they had great architecture and science programs. If I was going to post-secondary school today, I think I would go to Langara because they are close and have an arts sciences program I am interested in. I think that seeing colleges and universities before you hit grade 12 is important because it helps you decide what you want to be and where you want to go. I thought that just talking to all of the university and college representatives was the best part for me because I got to see how they all differ and are the same, helping me choose where to go for an education.
