The Best of What Canada has to Offer By: Karanjot

Democracy in Canada was established in 1867. Democracy is the right to choose who runs the country. In Canada's case we vote for the prime minister. In Canada, we could vote for an individual member, a political party, or in some cases both. When you elect an individual, they are given a seat at the house of commons which is located in Ottawa, Ontario. The leader of the party with the most seats is elected to be prime minister. The house of commons plays an important role because that is where issues get debated and it ensure the government is held accountable for their actions. Democracy is there so people have the right to choose for themselves who runs their country and who does not.

DEMOCRACY IS IMPORTANT TO ME BECAUSE PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO MAKE DECISIONS FOR THEMSELVES. VOTING IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISIONS YOU EVER MAKE BECAUSE YOU ARE DECIDING WHO RUNS THE COUNTRY. EVEN THOUGH I AM NOT OLD ENOUGH TO VOTE, I STILL APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT THE GENERAL PUBLIC ABLE TO CHOOSE FOR THEMSELVES WHO RUNS THE COUNTRY. THE RIGHT TO VOTE SHOULD BE VALUED BY ALL BECAUSE IF WE DON’T DECIDE WHO IS BEST FOR OUR COUNTRY WHO WILL? WE SHOULD BE HAPPY WE DON’T LIVE IN A DICTATORSHIP.

In 1971, Canada became the first country to make multiculturalism an official policy. Multiculturalism was created to prove that all citizens are equal regardless of where they come from. Multiculturalism is the fundamental belief that all citizens are equal. It benefits the citizens because it ensure they can keep their identity and have a sense of belonging. Multiculturalism was created when the multiculturalism policy of Canada was passed.

Multiculturalism is important to me because people should have the right to be themselves. They shouldn't be looked down upon because where they are from. They shouldn’t need hide their identity to get the job they wanted. They shouldn’t be treated differently if they get arrested. Multiculturalism is why many people come to Canada. They should not differently because they were not born here. I find Multiculturalism important because everyone needs to be as equals because I hate when people think they are better than me.

Free health care in Canada was introduced on July 1, 1962 in Saskatchewan.This benefits residents of Canada because it allows access to reasonable health services. Free health care otherwise known as Medicare is publicly funded health care system. It created so people have reasonable access to health services without paying out of pocket.It was created due to the Canada Health Act.

Free health care is important to me because it is one of the benefits of being a Canadian resident. It allows us to get access to health care without paying out of pocket. It is important because should be happy that they have reasonable health services wherever they go in Canada for free.
