Juno Beach was one of the 5 main landings on D-day. It changed Canada’s identity by giving Canadians pride and hope as it was the only landing that day that had great success. This victory over the Germans was a turning point in the war, which lead to the defeat of the Nazi’s. 14,000 Canadians stormed Juno Beach on D-day, unfortunately 340 of them died and 574 wounded. This was one of the biggest battles in Canadian history.
Canada’s participation in peacekeeping in the 20th century played a role by establishing Canada as a noticeable nation around the world. Canada is one of a few countries that the international community has turned to for peace support issues. After all a Canadian did make the term ‘peacekeeping’ popular in 1956. Canada has participated in many of peace support operations. People now think of Canada as a vested country who plays a big role in the peacekeeping community. www.veterans.gc.ca

He knows since there are no longer adults they need to remain disciplined to maintain civilization
Without rules humans become savage and disrespectful which Jack represents.
For example, he does not give Piggy a chance to speak and he does not take him seriously.
He pushes him around.
Piggy is ignored when he says the boys need to improve their chances of being rescued, however, Ralph, the more charismatic character, suggests the same thing and the boys agree that the signal fire is a good idea. Civilization vs. Savagery Ralph stands for civilization and leadership Ralph declares that, at meetings, the conch shell will be used to determine which boy has the right to speak Jack stands for the desire for power, and selfishness Piggy stands for the intellectual aspects of civilization Symbols The Conch Shell the conch shell becomes a powerful symbol of civilization and order
represents democratic power
stands for justice and equality (everybody has the right to state his opinion through the conch) Represent science
Lenses are used to focus the sunlight and start a fire The signal fire to attract the notice of passing ships that might be able to rescue the boys
Hopes of being rescued & the return to society
if the fire dies down they will no longer have hope of being rescued
island society’s link to civilization
