Transcript of Tyler M social project.

The goal of this assignment. This assignment has lots of different things that we are going the be looking at lots of different things. We are going to answer the question "How has collective rights legislation over time shaped who we are as Canadians? " and other questions that are related to collective rights. The people we are going to be looking at are the Japanese Canadians because of all of the issues they have faced through the years. What are collective rights ? When you talk about collective rights you are generally talking about rights that a certian group or organization or a person that is in a certian group or organization. The whole idea of collective rights is really controversial and it hasn't been making a large amount of progress either. Why do some groups have collective rights and not others? The reason that some groups have collective rihts and others don't can relate to a extremely large amount of things. These things include the problems they faced in the past to trying to make their previous way of life be accepted with open arms instead of hate and racism. There are lots of groups out there that already have it good compared to others and the government has to focus on the groups that dont have it like the other ones do. Although the fact that some groups get collective rights and others don't creates unwanted controversy the government can only give them a certian amount of power, which is either a good or bad thing depending on how you look at it. Why are collective rights important for all canadians? Collective rights are important for all canadians because Canada is one of the few countries who actually have collective rights and collective rights have a huge part in the identity of Canada. Collective rights are a big reason so many people move here to canada and it makes Canada have the prestigous reputation that it has. Another big reason that collective rights are important for all canadians is that is gives Canadians the right of mind that they have the choice to go into these groups and get the rights that the people in the groups would have. What legislation has established the collective rights of groups in Canada today? Many of the collective rights that were made for the japanese canadians were not made because of what they did. Most of the colelctive rights that they got were because there were several groups that were not getting treated the way they should. The government didnt just forget about them though. Years ago the government gave the japanese canadians a large sum of money when they got evicted from their homes during WWII because of the bombing of pearl harbour and how they got treated. They were basically getting payed for all of the things the government stole from them years ago. How has collective rights legislation over time shaped who we are as Canadians? over time the collective rights legislation has shaped canada into the country that it is now. It is rare for a country to have as many collective rights as we do, and most of the countries dont even have collective rights. This shows that canada is one of the most free countries in the world. Canada has a prestigous title for being at the top of the list for freedom and to choose whatever you want. and that is what makes canada canada. That is how collective rights legislation has shaped canada into the country it is.
Japanese canadians faced some touch challangs when they were first immigrating to canada, not only was finding a house and starting a life in a totally new country hard enough, but racism was also a factor. The government has really stepped in the following years and made a large amount of laws that the citizens have to follow, all due to the works of japanese canadians that came. Possably the first law that was passed benefitting the japanese canadians was the Canadain nationality law. Although it wasn't a strong help for the Japanese Canadians at least it made it easier for them to come into canada, forshadowing their acceptance in canada for later years. Soon after the Order-in-Council P.C. 4364 was released and this allowed all of the Japanese Canadains that were deported come back to canada. The first Japanese school was opened in 1952 and in 1964 the Japanese Canadian Culture Center was opened. It is obvious the progress that was being made was stunning at the time and it only got better. The changes made. Layin' down the law. During the war, there were next to no laws for the japanese canadians. After the war, there were tons made like the canadian nationality law, but it isnt always about the laws that are made, it is also the acceptance. The japanese canadians were loathed during the world wars and there were riots to drive them out of Canada. Now, the japanese are doing great in canada with no problems. Their rights are protected under the Charter of rights and freedoms and they also have collective rights so they could have special rights, just for themselves. This shows first hand the progression Canada has made throughout the years. Integration and Acceptance. Japanese Canadian organizations have popped up left and right during the years that followed the war. The "Japan Canada Friendship Garden" was introduced in Lethbridge soon after the war and that kickstarted the frienship between Canadians and Japanese. Soon after,Tonari Gumi, the Japanese Community Volunteers Association, is founded and right after Kelowna Japanese Canadian Community Senior Citizens Association incorporated is brought into the picture. Possabily the most important out of all of the organizations is the National JCCA. The National Association of Japanese Canadians (NAJC) This strengthens the bond between the Japanese Canadians and the Canadaians and it really helps inforce the rest of the world that the japanese canadians are accepted in canada.
Japanese canadians that changed the world. It is ironic that the people that were getting run out of the country would soon make the biggest changes that canada has faced. Not all of Canada's progression was made by pure bread canadians. Masajiro Miyazaki is appointed to the Order of Canada. The retired osteopath, over a period of 35 years, gave unselfish service to the residents of Lillooet, British Columbia, particularly those of Japanese and Indian backgrounds, even through in ill health. He was the first person of japanese decent to get appointed to canada. It only went up from there. The Infamous world renowend scientist , David Suzuki, got appointed to order of canada due to his research and progress he made in his field. Masajiro Miyazaki, is appointed to the Order of Canada. The retired osteopath, over a period of 35 years, gave unselfish service to the residents of Lillooet, British Columbia, particularly those of Japanese and Indian backgrounds, even through in ill health. These are the few examples of the people that made a difference in Canada even though they fought through everything when they were young. To sum it up. Canada as a whole has made so much progress throughout the years that is it hard to believe. Not only have canadians accepted them into society but the government has made laws and custom rights that the japanese canadians get to have. That shows that Canada is a forgiving country where everyone is accepted.
