Canadian Identity Test.


By Trevor Dawson.


1: The Canadian Identity is the stuff that all Canadian\'s have in common,
it\'s like we invented hockey so that is considered part of our identity. We
also invented Basketball but the U.s. took that away from us by exploting it
and saying that because the man was in the U.s. it was not Canadian, but for
the people that know they realize that our identity is falling apart because the
U.s. is a much bigger country so they have more power.

2: The thing that create our identity our the sports we invented, the
way we talk (eh), the courtesy that we have towards other countries, the food we
eat, and even the prices we have. More stuff that makes our identity are the
amount of racism in our country compared to the U.S. , also the beauty of the
land compared to the overpopulated cities in the U.s. We have the Rocky
mountains and many other clean and famous landmarks. Also the crime rate is
alot lower than in the U.s., and also unlike them we have free health care and
a lower pollution rate.

3: Canada to me is the best place to live in because we have beautiful
landmarks, we have free health care that helps my family alot because of my
asthma, we also have a government and a large amount of people that are nice to
other countries and are less hated. One main thing known about Canada is that
we are a center for sports, we also have less racism than the U.s., because if a
black child walked into a school in the U.s. 30 years ago he would be made fun
of called names and even failed by the teachers because of his skin color. But
back in the 1800\'s black people thought of Canada as the free land.

4: I think Canada and the U.s are very different because, we have way
less violence, we have less pollution, we are more friendlier to our neibouring
countries, we have less pollution and free health care for that matter. Most of
the popular sports know in days us Canadian\'s invented even though the U.s.
tries to say they might have, we are more of a free country than the U.s. and
we aren\'t even as close to as racist then them.


5: Canada and the U.s. are the same because, the businesses from the
U.S. are coming to Canada and putting the Canadian buissnesses bankrupt. Also
the T.v. sations from the U.s. are on almost all the T.v channels, most of their
shows and movies are twice as violent as our\'s and they even try to cut down
the amount of violence in the shows before their broadcast. Also the U.s. are
coming to the leagues that started off being Canadian, and we let them because
they are way more dominant then us. Even though our violence level is lower than
their\'s it\'s getting pretty high and our gangs are multiplying very fast.

6: If Canada wants to keep a good country for the future we must, start
by cutting down the amount of pollution, also we have to clean up all the
graffiti and the bad influences painted on the walls, we also have to try to
cut down the violence level that\'s on T.V. because that\'s just ruining the
minds of the youth. We also should be more effective on the laws in the country
like teens not smoking cigarettes or marijuana. I think if Canada changed and
showed the rest of the world that we\'re perfect then the rest of the world would
start to think about themselves.
