Conflicts

One expectation of a grade seven student is to identify types of conflicts and conflict resolutions. Some examples of conflicts that happen include Rebellions/Revolutions, Strikes, Protests, War and Bycotts. These various conflict still happen today, whether it be the Occupy Movement of the Syrian Revolution. Conflicts and their resolutions have helped shape the course of history, changing "Canada" (Before confederation) during the late 1830's by revolutions that were clearly anti-oligarchy. Though the rebellions were a failure, in the long run, they helped the formation of a Responsible Government.

The War on Terrorism

"I don't think there's any question that when you get the number one terrorist in the world, that we're a little safer today than we were when he was alive. But I also don't think we ought to kid ourselves that killing Usama Bin Ladin kills al-Qa'ida. Al-Qa'ida still remains a threat, they're still going to try to attack our country, and I think we have to continue to be vigilant and continue the effort to ultimately defeat these guys. We damaged them, but we still have to defeat them."

 

—DCIA Leon E. Panetta, Interview with NBC Nightly News, May 3, 2011

The Occupy Protests

The Occupy Protests were done to protest the corporate greed and the unfair policies out forth by today's government. It is an international movement, though it is most famous for Occupy Wall Street. 

 

"To me, the Occupy movement sounds a warning: at its peril our government must begin to reapply seriously the values of equality and democracy expressed in the Declaration of Independence and protected by the Constitution. Until we deal seriously with issues such as those the Occupiers have raised from silence, inconvenient protests will not cease and will spread."

Lower Canada Revolution

During the late 1830's, disparaties grew beween the oligarchs and general public grew, and the political barrier started to re-form. The Chateau Clique (and Family Compact in Upper Canada) controlled the majority of the unelected body and had the more influence than the assembly at a time when Lower Canada was going through a time of economical difficulties, while the Chateau Clique lived its lavish lifestyles. The Seigneural system was alo posing a promblem to the citizens. To combat this oligarchy, the reformists, who had nearly three-forths of the assembly, managed to pass the 92 resolutions - a set of resolutions that would make "Canada" more democratic for everyone. But in truth, the assembly was powerless and their demands were simply rejected by the Russel Resolutions. Inspired by the American republic, Papineau continue to push for reform, but it only resulted in the Union act.
