Transcript of My Canadian Trading Partner's Project~ Taiwan

Canada's Trading Partner~Taiwan
By: Gabriela C. 6V

I chose Taiwan as my country for my Canadian Trading Partners project because Taiwan is an interesting place. Taiwan is also famous for their little snack booths. In Taiwan, just walking along the street makes you hungry because alot of people set up booths all along the street with snacks. There are even cockroaches roasted and dipped in chocolate on a stick!
Political System
Taiwan's government is a multiparty, democratic province.Taiwan's power is distributed among five large branches of government called Yuan: the Legislative Yuan (National Assembly), Executive Yuan, Judicial Yuan, Examination Yuan, and Control Yuan. The Examination Yuan oversees Taiwan's difficult system of exams, controlling education, jobs, business licenses, the civil service, etc. The Control Yuan is an agency that tries to keep things honest. The president is directly elected. The president appoints the premier, who has considerable power because they appoint the heads of Taiwan's many ministries that oversee the large group of officials.
The capital of Taiwan is Taipei and it's population is 2.619 million (Dec 2010).The languages that are spoken are Standard Chinese or Modern Standard Chinese, also known as Mandarin, Putonghua, Guoyu and Modern Standard Mandarin.
If I could take a trip to Taiwan I would go see...
If I could visit Taiwan, I would visit the Mengjia Longshan Temple.It was built in Taipei in 1738 by settlers from Fujian, China. It served as a place of worship and a gathering place for the Chinese settlers. The temple has been destroyed either in full or in part on numerous earthquakes and fires.

During World War II, on May 31, 1945, it was hit by American bombers during the Raid on Taipei, who claimed the Japanese were hiding people inside. The main building and the left corridor were damaged and many precious artifacts and artworks were lost in the fire.

Taipei residents have rebuilt and renovated the temple, and did so again after the end of the Second World War a few months later. Longshan is seen as an example of Taiwanese classical architecture, with southern Chinese influences seen in older buildings.

Like most temples in Taiwan, the Temple worships a mixture of Buddhist, Taoist, and other folk religions, such as Matsu.

An important part of Taiwanese history is that in 1950, the United States protected Taiwan from the Chinese invasion during the Korean War.
