2: AGRICULTURE (also known as farming or husbandry) | Agruculture is raising crops, preparing land and raising animals. It is a dangerous job since there are about 100 deaths each year but farmers are people we rely on to feed us locally. Through the years, farms have gotten bigger, but the number of farmers has dropped. Also, most agriculture lands are only producing 1 thing these day (only dairy, only wheat, etc.)
3: Canada is actually one of the largest producer of agriculture. The amount of agriculture has dropped in Canada but it is still a huge contributer to Canada's money making. We do almost every type of agriculture in Canada but even though we do so much in agriculture, only 2.2% of our population lives on farms.
4: The Residential Schools were know as a Canadian Holocaust. Indian kids had no choice but to go to the schools and learn the 'white' lifestyle. That means they had to do everything an average white person would do like dressing, eating and speaking like them. The kids were taken around 5 years of age and stayed there until they were adults sent into the real world. | If the children did not obey the rules, they would be punished. which meant a possible beating. some of the children were even beaten to death.
5: We had to apologize to all aboriginals for what they had to go through even though the Governors that originally ran it have passed away. The schools have made a lot of Canadian Aboriginals commit suicide. and because of the racism back then, a lot of white people are still racist towards Aboriginals. If you ask me, I most definitely think the residential schools affected Canada, a lot! | The residential schools were created and ran in Canada. It has left Canadian aboriginals angry and hurt. Many have turned into alcoholics to deal with the memories. and a large amount are unemployed
6: We mine minerals and all minerals are placed into three categories. Theres is the metallic minerals which is stuff used for making jewelry. Structural minerals which are non-metals used for stuff like fertilizers, asphalt, etc., and fuel minerals which is stuff like oil and gas's. The two types of mining are open-pit mining which is mining minerals near the surface and Underground mining which is minerals that lie deep into earth, | MINING!
7: Emma Willis | Amy Garcia | James Pollock | James Brown | Canada is known as one of the largest mining nations. mining contributes $42 billion to Canada per year.1 out of every 50 Canadians are miners. Lots of communities rely on mining alone to manage, 115 to be exact! Canada gets lots of money by supplying the world with oil and gas. Some workers are paid over 100 000 dollars to work a year! | Mining has the biggest affect on Canada's Job availability and economy!
8: BABY BOOM | Baby booms are just temporary when they happen but they are big increases in the birth rate for that marked time. They usually happen after big event in history or during really good economic times. For example, on of the biggest baby booms happened right after World War II in 1951-1961.
9: Many babies were born during the baby boom and there are lots of reasons behind that. When the veterans came back from war, they felt they needed to keep their name running in generations after being in a near death experience. Another factor was during the 50's many jobs were available which allowed people to afford more babies. A lot of foreign people would migrate to Canada for better living and start large families here, and Canada had enough room for everyone so having kids was not a problem. | 1951-1961 | Boomers changed Canada's economy for the better when people stopped making machine guns and started making strollers.
