Canada and observe everything. Americans don’t do that

        Canada is the greatest country to have existed in the world unlike its other allies they are ignorant and uninterested in cultures, ideas, or peoples outside their own experience. In the past there have always been times where Canada has been keeping cultures safe and encouraging people to come to their country the quote by Tom Cochrane “I think we are globally minded …. we’ve learned how to play the game and observe everything. Americans don’t do that … the English and the Americans tend to be insular.” (Tom Cochrane) is one of the greatest quotes to have been said as it clearly describes Canadian concepts. The quote that has been stated by Cochrane, clearly states that Canada is a country that is not insular and accepting when it comes to culture, ideas and peoples while countries like Britain and America are short sighted in these aspects. Therefore, many times in the past Canada has proved this by looking at the other countries and learning from their mistakes this shows that that Canada is very accepting when it comes to culture, ideas and the people’s needs.         Canada in the nineteenth century was a developing country which was just starting to get more diverse as multiculturalism, bilingualism, and the acceptance of women were being put into effect, which is why Canada is different than other countries. To begin, there was a great Canadian his name was Pierre Trudeau and he had encouraged the importance of multiculturalism. Trudeau’s focus was to change the fact that “English Canada doesn’t have a culture — I’m going to give it one.” (Pierre Trudeau) his goal was to start a new institution of official multiculturalism and it should be combined with increased immigration. This was a very important step for Canada because it had introduced the idea of multiculturalism which is why Canada is what it is today and what makes it different than other countries. Next, Pierre Trudeau had introduced bilingualism which allowed English and French to become Canada’s national languages. Trudeau has in stated the right for both English and French Canadians to speak their respective languages by stating, “Bilingualism is not an imposition on the citizens — it is an imposition on the state.” (Trudeau). This quote is very important as it shows the importance of bilingualism in Canada as it gives Canada it identity and sets it apart for other countries like Britain and America. Furthermore, Kim Campbell had the honor of being our first female prime minister in Canada. Kim Campbell said herself that “Canada is the homeland of equality, justice and tolerance.” (Kim Campbell). This is a very important quote because it shows the qualities of Canada and what makes it different than other countries such as America and Britain. To end, Canada is a country that is defined by its multiculturalism, bilingualism, and female rights which have all gave Canada its identity and have set it apart from countries such as Britain and America.         Canada in the nineteenth century was a country that was developing and taking as many ideas, which helped it improve as a country such as free healthcare, the charter of rights and freedom, and the creation of the Canadian flag. To begin, One of the greatest Canadian Tommy Douglas had introduced free health care. His speech had made people believe in free health care just as he did, “I came to believe that health services ought not to have a price tag on them, and that people should be able to get whatever health services they required irrespective of their individual capacity to pay.” (Tommy Douglas). This is a very important idea that Douglas had come up with because it is why today Canada has a free healthcare system today and why America does not have it. Next, the creation of the Charter of Rights and Freedom is one of the most important iconic creation for Canada which allowed Canada to have more control over itself than it would when the Bill of rights was created. Pierre Trudeau says, “Americans should never underestimate the constant pressure on Canada which the mere presence of the United States has produced. We’re different people from you and we’re different people because of you.” (Trudeau). This quote is very important because it explains the difference between Canada and America the charter of rights and freedom was very important because it had given Canada its proper independence as a nation unlike the Us. Furthermore, Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson had noticed that Canada did not have a flag to represent its people and country alike. Pearson had proposed his idea, “I believe that today a flag designed around the Maple Leaf, will symbolize and be a true reflection of the new Canada.” (Lester B. Pearson). This quote is a very important quote because it was an important time in the history of Canada as a Canadian prime minister was planning on changing the flag of the country, this was a huge step for Canada because it helped give Canada its symbol and identity. To end, Canada is a country that has had many great ideas through the creation of the healthcare, charter of rights and freedoms and the creation of the Canadian flag which have all gave Canada its identity and have set it apart from countries such as Britain and America.Canada in the nineteenth century was a country that had listened to the people’s needs and wants, which helped it improve as a country, great leaders such as Lester. B Pearson, Pierre Trudeau, and Tommy Douglas had listened to the people and given them what they wanted. To begin, Pearson had resolved many conflicts between nations as Canadians did not want to fight in other wars around the globe. Pearson had said that, “The grim fact is that we prepare for war like precocious giants, and for peace like retarded pygmies.” (Pearson). This quote is very important because it expresses the idea that we humans proudly prepare to war without knowing what it’s like and deal poorly when it comes to peace, Pearson had done his best to avoid war which most of the people in Canada wanted to do as well. Next, Pierre Trudeau had promised Quebecers he would renew the Canadian Constitution. He stated that”I wish simply that the bringing home of our constitution marks the end of a long winter, the breaking up of the ice jams and the beginning of a new spring. What we are celebrating today is not so much the completion of our task, but the renewal of our hope – not so much an ending, but a fresh beginning.” (Trudeau). This quote is very important because he wanted French Canadians to be proud of being in Canada while appeasing them. Furthermore, Tommy Douglas had improved the province of Saskatchewan heavily by fixing its economy and society heavily. Douglas had stated that, “Improving people’s economic condition is not an end in itself, it’s a means to an end…. I never thought a man could save his soul if his belly was empty or that he could think about things like beauty and goodness if he had a toothache.” (Douglas). This quote is very important because Douglas had listened to its people and planned to improve the economy and society of the province Saskatchewan. To end, Canadians have always helped and listened to other Canadians as we have seen through the acts of Pearson, Trudeau and Douglas which further proves the Canadian identity and shows us that Canada is different than the other countries because we understand our people’s needs.To finalize, the quote, stated by Tom Cochrane is an excellent representation of how Canada has always been more perceptive than countries such as Britain and America when it came to culture, ideas and peoples. These Canadian qualities had given Canada its identity and leading Canada to have always been ahead of the game when it came to these concepts. Every one of these aspects gave Canada its identity and social importance which set it apart from countries such as Britain and America which why in the world today Canada is one of the world’s most respected countries. As such Canada has always been one of the most perceptive countries.
