Canadian Identity by Mind Map: Canadian Identity

1. Ava: not all symbols of patriotism come in form of flags, flowers, or anthems.Some are living human beings.From a young age,Canadians are taught that some of their country's proudest symbol are fellow citizens who have achieved great success or fame for making a positive contribution to the country. and I think Terry Fox influenced Canada's identity. the most beloved Canadian of the last 100 years. he is something like a modern day saint. as a young student Terry contracted bone amputation of his right leg. inspired to raise money for cancer research he organized a one-man Marathon of Hope across the country, but tragically quit less than half way through,after his cancer spread to his lungs. he died a martyr for his cause.

1.1. Ava:

2. What peoples and cultures influenced Canadian Identity?

3. Aish: Textbook "The student with the highest macks in Alberta is not allowed to accept a prize because of her/his race" probably this did happen in Canada along time ago, and good thing this doesn't happen anymore in Canada. But still this happens to some countries they don't allow some kids that have a different religion to their schools, but here in Canada they allow some kids that have a different religion, they also allow them to go to school here in Canada "Some people are not allowed to sit anywhere in a movie theatre. They have to sit in the last few rows because of their ethnic background." This is true but it doesn't happen anymore, Viola Desmond was one of this people she wanted to sit on the main floor, when she said that the woman gave her a balcony seat but she didn't want to so she was arrested and thrown in jail, her bail was $26 fine but she fighted for herself and for all black people too.

4. Thomas: I think Emilly Murphy impacted canada by fighting for equal rights and that made canada a better nonfeminist place even though she was pushed around, laughed at, she was able to make and achieve her goal with determination. According to the textbook on page 247 “Some of the biggest changes affected woman. During this time they got new jobs, new rights and new responsibilities.”

5. Lester Pearson influenced Canadian identity by making Canada have a new flag. He knew that the flag we had didn’t go well with the Canadians because only quatre of the flag represented us, he decided that we needed to create a new flag. He did as he said and talked with the government to create a new flag. When he did this he made Canada an independent, and a reputable country. According to The Voices of Canada Grade 5 textbook on page 239, “The flag debate got everyone talking about who Canadians were, and how we could all be represented by one flag. People debated at home, in stores, and on the streets.”

6. Seyran: I think that Mark Isfeld influenced Canadian identity because he would go to child threatening areas and would get rid of landmines in those areas and would give the children dolls to clear their minds. According to the textbook on page 297 it says " To keep his memory alive, Carol kept knitting Izzy Dolls for the children and inspired mothers all around the world". Mark Isfeld gave us the reputation of a courageous, and a more safer Canada.

7. Tyanne-I think the aboriginal people helped shaped canada because they fought for their rights. They thought that the government was too far to know what the aboriginal people needed , They wanted to their own decisions and be apart. On page 306 in the book of voices of canada grade 5 it said” The Inuit felt that the government was too far away to understand what they needed. They wanted the right to make decisions for themselves. This is called self-government. The Inuit talked with Canada’s government for many years. “

8. Erica: Lester Pearson was the prime minister of Canada and he influenced Canadian identity by announcing that he wanted a new flag for Canada. He knew that the flag that we had before didn’t really fit for the people because only quatre of the flag represented the United States.So he made sure that Canada was an independent country. “People debated at home, in stores, and on the street. Everyone had strong feelings about which symbols best represented Canada.” - As the voices of Canada grade five textbook says on page 299.

9. Maya: Emily Murphy was born in 1868 and passed away in 1933 and she was even a Canadian equal rights activist. According to the textbook on page 247 “During this time,they got paying jobs, new rights, and new responsibilities.” She became Canada’s first female magistrate and helped to annul fair law-making against women. In 1929, she succeeded in gaining a decision that said that “women were legal persons under the B.N.A act and so could serve as a member of Congress and judges”.

10. Ayo:I think that the Blue Beret is a symbol of canadian identity because,Blue Berets or Blue helmets were worn by Peacekeepers. The Peacekeepers were people who promoted canada to the friendly and accepting place it is today,The Peacekeepers went around to distressed places were people could possibly fight or argue then stop or prevent conflicts or arguments.

11. Eduardo: The Peacekeepers help shape Canada’s Identity as they support people affected by conflicts. They help build Canada’s reputation as a friendly and welcoming country. “These soldiers would go to troubled areas to prevent fighting, without taking sides.” - Voices of Canada Grade 5 Textbook

12. Lord: I think Leaster Pearson influenced Canadian Identity by creating a election for a new flag that was more Canadian because they flag the Canada used to have was really British. The Union Jack covered a quater of the Canadian Flag so Leaster deciced that we needed a new flag. So on February 15,1965 the flag that the Canadians voted on was the same flag we have now. The Textbook says on page 299 "He announced that Canada needed a new flag." He gave the us the reputation of a independent country.

13. Brielle: I think Lester Pearson made Canada a better place. in page 296 it says " Lester Pearson was in charge of how Canada worked with other countries. He suggested that the UN put together a group of soldiers from countries like Canada that were not at war. These soldiers would go to troubled areas to prevent fighting, without taking sides. This was the world’s first peacekeeping force. "

14. Myah: I think that the peacemakers changed canada by helping making the county a peaceful and safe place for people in. there job is to keep people in the county safe and make sure nobody feels uncofortable. a person named Mark Isfeld was one of the peacemakers. He had the most dangerous job. he had to work in the land mines. if you went on the they would explode.

15. Loraine: I think Nellie MCclung influenced Canada's identity because she changed the fate of women. How? she help women stand up for their rights, she fought for their suffering of have less pay of men and having to clean the house instead of doing a job they like. Women had no chance of voting for what, or for who, the famous five stopped that they made women have the same pay as men and women wouldn't have jobs right now if it weren't that Famous five but mostly Nellie MCclung "Disturbers are never popular—nobody ever really loved an alarm clock in action—no matter how grateful they may have been afterwards for its kind services" Page 258-263 Voices of Canada Grade 5 textbook

16. Laurene: I think Peacekeepers influenced Canadian identity the most because they risked their lives to help others. They help protect children, stop wars, and prevent fighting without getting involved. Peacekeepers have made Canadian identity as a protected place. Peacekeepers go to different place to make peace everywhere but no matter what they will always be neutral. Canada is a very accepting place and always welcomes everyone who comes. “Peacekeeping means working to end conflicts without taking sides” and “These soldiers would go to troubled areas to prevent fighting” -As the Voices of Canada Textbook says on page 296.

17. Mikayla: I think that the peacekeepers influenced the Canadian identity by risking their lives to protect others and by being selfless, putting others before them, just like Mark Isfeld did. Peacekeepers created the United Nation (UN). It has helped many in Canada with preventing conflicts and keeping peace. As the Voices of Canada textbook (page 296) says “Peacekeeping means to end conflicts without taking sides.” Peacekeepers have made Canada a welcoming, open, and accepting Country.

18. Marco: I think that Mark Isfeld also a big part of the peacekeepers helped influence Canada's identity by clearing land mines in Croatia if you stepped on the land mine it would exploded.Mark always had time for the local children he would protect them from the land mines he knew what the land mine could do but the children didn't have a clue what a land mine was.According to page 297 ‘’Mark had a dangerous job he was clearing land mines in Croatia,Mark made time for the kids,When Mark came home on a break he showed his mother a picture of an abandoned house.IN the picture was a doll that a child lost.Mark’s mother Carol decided to knit some dolls for Mark to give to the children on his return to Croatia’’.Voices of Canada

19. Landen: The peacekeepers 100 peacekeepers died 1994 Mark is fully clears mines for the Army. Mark's mom sold people in suits basically made out of wool Some hide camel under shirt and blue hat Mark almost gave out 90 dolls.Marco's actually dead only because she ran over one mind blow up his car his friends call home First phone call Jessie dolls.pg 297 Mark was killed when his vehicle ran over a landmine. To keep his memory alive, Carol kept knitting Izzy dolls. Other mothers across Canada started making dolls for Canadian peacekeepers to give out around the world. They continue to give them out today.

20. Praise: Lester Pearson influenced Canadian identity by making Canada have a new flag. He knew that the flag we had didn’t go well with the Canadians because only quatre of the flag represented the United Kingdom, he decided that we needed to create a new flag. He did as he said and talked with the government to create a new flag. When he did this he made Canada an independent, and a reputable country. According to The Voices of Canada Grade 5 textbook on page 239, “The flag debate got everyone talking about who Canadians were, and how we could all be represented by one flag. People debated at home, in stores, and on the streets.”

21. ZAch: I think that John A. Macdonald is an identity of Canada by making the CPR. John had a dream of a railway that stretched across Canada, for his dream to come true workers would have to build 5000 km of track through the Canadian Shield and the Rocky mountains. He was the maker of Canada by thinking of the idea of the railway. According to the “Macdonald was extraordinary for his time because he saw that this could be one vast country and he saw that the railroad was going to be crucial pulling it together.” and "He saw that this whole vast area, if he could pull it to together with a steel spine of a railway." This is how John A. Macdonald Is an identity of Canada.

22. Gabriel: Helen Armstrong was the leader of the Women's Labour League. Helen would also help by feeding 15,000 men and women. She wanted all rights for men and woman. "Girls have to learn how to fight as men have had to do for the right to live" Helen Armstrong shows how Canada is a equal and fair country. I got my information from episode 7 boom and bust. I got my quote from Helen Armstrong Canada's history.

23. Joshua: In 1956 there was something called the peacekeepers in Canada to stop war. Peacekeeping means to end conflict without taking sides. The peacekeepers succeed with their plan because of lester person that won the nobel prize in 1957. I feel that the peacekeepers make Canada free because they stopped war and made us free from war. As the textbook said.The peacekeepers succeed and the fighting stopped.

24. Colton: I think that John A. Macdonald is quite a big influence of Canada since he created the . As the textbook states "John Alexander Macdonald came to the colony of canada with his family from scotland in 1820 when he was 5 years old making a railway started as a dream of John, he wanted the new county to stretch from the Atlantic and to the Pacific Ocean." That's why I think that John A. Macdonald Made an influence on the country by connecting the atlantic side and the pacific side of the world.

25. Jan: I think George-Ètienne Cartier, a Francophone leader are one of the people who influenced Canada’s diversity and identity. I think that because Cartier was the one who wanted Francophones to keep their identity if they joined different colonies that didn’t speak French and the one who wanted English speaking people and French speaking people to be equal. Macdonald and other people agreed so they made English and French the official languages of Canada. To this day Canada is still bilingual. On page 228 it says. “ Cartier was a Francophone leader in Canada East. Canada. Above all, he wanted to protect his people’s language, religion, culture, and identity.” On page 229 it says, “Cartier wanted Francophones and Anglophones to be equal partners. He, Macdonald, and their followers agreed that the new country should have both French and English as its official languages.”
