What are the qualifications outlined under this law to be appointed to the Canadian Senate?


You should have 2 sources for each of the 5 sub-sections, but they can be the same general source, such as the Canadian Encyclopedia but different parts of that website.

These 5 sub-sections have a huge amount of possible information, but I want you to focus only on the parts that answer the questions in the bullet points. Use precise Googling/search within the sources you find to pinpoint the material you need to read.

For example, the BNA Act. The bullets indicate 2 things in that very long and rambling law that we need to know about because it set the legal framework with an 1860 colonial mindset that started this tiny snowball rolling down the hill. The following events are where it picks up more and more snow to become an avalanche.

I am guessing that it will need to be at least 6 pages double-spaced. Plus a page at the end listing all of your sources. No headers, and please make brief citations for each paragraph and all quotes, like this: (BNA Act Canadian Encyclopedia). Then list the website in your sources so I can look it up if I have a question about your information.

Paper Question:

This is one question, but it has many parts. You must answer every part. The correct answer will outline the following process:

The Canadian government wanted to institute a military draft during World War I (1914-18) to increase the size of its army/navy. This led to the legalization of same-sex marriage in Canada in 2005. How did wanting more soldiers result in recognizing equal marriage rights? You mission is to explain that to me.

You will need to research the following:

British North America Act (usually called the BNA Act) now called the Constitution Act of 1867. This British Law created Canada as an almost but not quite separate country.
Britain withheld 3 important powers from its newest child all of which directly affect the subsequent events that led to marriage equality what are they?
