Unlike many other countries’ political scene which appears to be going through a lot of conflicts, Canadian politics is not suffering such terrible conflicts. But it does not mean that Canada do not face any political problems. Canadian politics is rather cold if you are looking for a fierce political scene. You must have a bit of knowledge about Canadian politics prior to looking at some problems of the politics in the country.
Canadian politics and British politics are pretty much same. It would not be wrong if we say that it is based on British political system like so many other countries. Canada is a federal democratic state with the Queen of England being the head of State, although the Queen has very limited functions. Then there are two houses, an upper house and a lower house. Widely the upper house is known as the Senate and the lower house is called House of Commons. House of Commons constitutes the elected members of Canadian political parties having the right of legislation. Thus, this house has a critical base part in Canadian politics.
As Canada is a developed country therefore it does not face the problems of poverty, unemployment, law & order situation etc however, it has problems of bit unusual nature. Among these, the most common issue, the Canadian nation is facing, is regarding the healthcare. Though, every citizen of Canada has access to basic health services but still more upgraded healthcare facilities are required. The biggest issue the Canadians have these days, is the increasing privatization related to healthcare services.
Apart from this issue, is the burning affair of Canadian troops’ presence in the one of most unsafe and hostile countries of world; Afghanistan. Most of the Canadians are against the idea of war and having their army in such regions. As thousands of Canadian troops have put their lives at stake so, many Canadians want to pull them back to their land. Thus, this affair is the one of most heartly debated upon every now and then by many Canadians.
Then there is another debate as well of the harmonized sales tax, which the Canadians are not in favor of. Coordinated tax is typically the combination of federal and provincial tax. Canadian government wish to introduce this tax as soon as possible however the people of Canada are still not ready to accept it, as a result a hot arguments have erupted.
These are few typical political problems in ordinary Canadian citizen life. If you want to know more about what is happening in the Canadian political scene you should log on to the internet and you will find a number of blogs serving this purpose.
