Hutterites, by Cassidy and Michaela
Transcript of Hutterites, by Cassidy and Michaela
for historical and constitutional reasons. Hutterites in Canada Hutterites are a communal people living in
colonies throughout the prairies.
Because of the Hutterites beliefs,
they were subjected to frequent migration. Hutterites were immigrants who moved to Canada
in 1918 because of the harrassment and persecution
in the U.S. that resulted from their
refusal to participate in
military service. By 1940, there were 52 Hutterite colonies in Canada Canada wanted the Hutterites to help develop the agricultural potential of the Prairies. The authorities gave the Hutterites assurances that they would not be forced to do military service, and they were also assured religious freedom. The Hutterites were criticized for
•buying supplies in large quantities wherever prices were lowest, not necessarily in the surrounding communities.
•their appearance of a tax-free status.
•providing insufficient education to their children. The right to refuse military service was granted by the Canadian government, and Hutterites did substitute service in public institutions, hospitals, national parks, paper mills, etc. and supported the hospital field services financially. In 1972, the new Progressive Conservative government passed a Bill of Rights, and got rid of the Communal Property Act in 1973 against strong protests from members of the legislature in southern Alberta In 1995 there were 93 colonies in Manitoba, 54 in Saskatchewan and 138 in Alberta. Hutterites are one of 3 major sectarian groups (the others are the mennonites and the Amish) surviving today Collective rights are important to all Canadians because it protects their identity and notices and affirms the rights of specific groups (Aboriginals, Francophones, Anglophones, and Hutterites) and helps to ensure they are proud of their identites. Collective rights are also important because it identifies everyone as equals, shows different cultures and the diversity in Canada. THE END!
