Improved Essays
Today, 89 percent of magazines sold in Canada are foreign, most of which are
American. ( From Class Material). Just imagine this statement, it seems Canadian people depend on foreign entertainment. Globalization played a major role to take in this case. What I believe is that head of the country always try to save the country with any cost. But in this case is little different, Canada and America are neighbor country. What I feel is that America always see Canada is one of their States. I could be wrong here.

What I see the problem is people of the country. If the people of the country are united and show loyal to the country not buying foreign products then it would much easier for the Government to make deal with this. If the people of the country prefer to buy American magazine more then local magazine companies will shut down eventually. Now question is why Canadian prefer to buy American Magazine. Are the attractive? Are those magazine’s content much different than Canadian magazine? So many questions come in my mind. Canadian Magazine companies are not able produce what American Magazine company can do? This is obvious that America has more population than Canada. So America will have more stories than Canada which is normal. People like to get entertained through reading magazines and reading unbelievable stories.It is all depend on Canadian people to buy those magazines and adapt the life style based on they read from American Magazine.

I will strongly suggest magazine companies to write some educational things in the magazine so that people read magazine regular basis they will get some knowledge through reading those magazines. One most important thing I will do is that request all Canadian writer or journalist to come back to their country and work for the country. I will be making sure that they get paid what they deserve. I personally know lots of talented people are working all the over the world. That happens for all the country around the globe.

    For many centuries, laws and rights have been society’s foundation for nations all around the world. Laws are rules that people are made to follow by the government; a right is something a person has that should not be taken away from them. Both play an important role in determining the order of society in a nation and over time, each country developed their own constitution. As early as the Magna Carta and as recent as the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, countries began developing written documents, in order to record and address the rights of individuals in their country. For Canada, this step was taken 34 years ago, with the introduction of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms in 1982.…

Since these rights were applied to everyone in Canada, it provided less chance of biased laws(unfair treatment) and more equality in the nation.
