Who's in charge?
In Canada, there were three main levels of government.
*the FEDERAL-People in charge of the country
*the PROVINCAL-People in charge of a province
*the LOCAL-People in charge of a local area such as cities.
Every level has a leader called a Mayor, Premier, or a Prime
Today, the queen is not involved as much in the decision making of Canada.
The Pillars
Canada had 4
Pillars of Democracy.
They were:
-Fair treatment of individuals and groups
-Individuals and groups having the same opprotunites in life.
-people have the right to think and speak as they wish.
-Elected representatives act on behalf of citizens.

What Canada Believes
Canada believes in things to be fair ad equal. They believe that there sould be values, rules, equality, fairness, and the rule of law. In Canada, they would also appreciate diversity and compromised solutions.
Class 3: The Slaves
The slaves were the lowest class. They became slaves if they were born outside city state and were taken prisoner.
Slaves were owned by citizens. They could not own land and could not participate in democracy.
Class 2: Metics
Metics were residents of the city state.
They could not own land and could not participate in democracy.
They would most likely ask to borrow land from citizens.
Class 1: Citizens
Citizens were at the top (Well really, the MEN were). These were the people who were born in Athens.Only MALES could participate in democracy. The men became citizens after their military service at age 20.
The women owned less thatn the men. Also, only the boys went to school aroung the age of 12. Girls did not go to school, they were taught by the mothers.
Their Democracy:
The Men and Woman

The men of the Iroquios had different duties than the women, though they had less duties. For example, the men would have to cut trees for longhouses, cut trees for canoes, orgonize team sports (which they believed to build leadership skills, hunt, fish and provide food the their village.
When the time has come to choose a chief, they women would look for honesty,kind hearts, think cleary, loyalty, knowledge, ability to uphold Great Law, represent fairly, and be able to handle critism.
Their Government
The Iroquios women had lots of respect. They would own property, raise the children, lead the clan, raised the crop, and they chose the chiefs. As said before, they would look for things such as honesty and knowledge. It was possible to pick more then one chief and to remoe a chief from his title. When a woman got married, the husband would live in her familys longhouse. The women had much importance.
Other Important Things

The Iroquois had many other interesting facts about them.
*Each clan had an animal to be identified by
*In order to remember their Great Law of Peace, they would use wampum belts.
*A group of 50 chiefs represented the Six Nations.
*Hiawatha made the first wampum to fill his sorrow and distress of the death of his three daughters.
*Wampums showed the serious feelings of the message
and the sincerity of who made it.

There are 3 democracies that we have learned so far which are...
In Athens, they had a direct democracy instead of having representatives. It included:

* The Assembly ( Took place 40 times a year. 600 needed to come.)
*The Council of 500
* and The Court

The government made decisions in the assembly. All men could bring their own concerns to the government.
Ancient Athens also had different classes of people. People in each class were treated equally. They were treated different if in different class. These classes were...
In Conclusion...
There are many differents and similarities between these democracies. But they all managed to keep peace and trenquility in their society. A lot of them for example includes: (PLEASE GO TO NEXT SLIDE) and so on.
And so much more you can recognize.
But all this led to the democracy we have today in Canada. Starting from Athens and the Iroquois, to us.

*Canada had three different leaders for
each type of government
*Canada had different types of pillars of democracy than Athens
*Iroqouis women had more respect at first than Canada and Athens
*Now Canada has more equity than the two other democrcies because everyone can do everything
*Athens had different classes of people
* There could be more than one leader (chiefs)

The Iroquois showed that both man AND woman were very important.
A group of 50 chiefs represented the Six Nations. Those groups included the
Mohawk Nation - 9 chiefs, Oneida Nation - 9 chiefs (Tuscarora was not included in the group yet and were represented by the Oneida Chiefs), Onondaga Nation - 14 chiefs, Cayuga Nation - 10 chiefs, Seneca Nation - 8 chiefs.
Like Canada, they had a consensus, but theirs was called the Great Law of Peace. It was nice to have a list of laws but it was too long to read it woul take a few days to finish.
