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. The Canadian politics do not have violent situations instead it’s frosty. You must have a bit of knowledge about Canadian politics prior to looking at some problems of the politics in the country.
Well, Canadian politics is basically not much different from that of British. It is quite right to say that Canadian system’s foundation is from British system. The state of Canada is federal democratic and Queen of England is the chief of the country, though she performs very controlled tasks. Then there are two houses, an upper house and a lower house. Upper House is called the Senate while lower one is known as the 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.
Now being a developed country, Canada does not face issues like poverty, unemployment, law and order situation etc but in fact the issues are relatively different. One of the most typical issue faced by Canada is the problem of poor healthcare facilities. Although, every Canadian citizen enjoys basic healthcare facilities, yet they want an even more improvement in the healthcare services being offered to them. 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 many of the Canadian army men are at stake therefore many citizen wish to bring them home. So, this political issue is one of those hot issues, which is discussed by many of the 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. The government of Canada is intending to implement it soon but the Canadian citizens are yet not ready which consequently has erupted a fiery debate.
These are some of the basic political issues revolving the Canadian citizens’ lives. If you wish to enhance your knowledge about ongoing Canadian political situation you must search on internet, you will find many blogs related to such issues.
