All Canadians deserve to feel safe and to have their most fundamental rights protected. That is why it is important for the Government of Canada to work to address the historical and ongoing inequality faced by people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and two-spirit (LGBTQ2). This was a vital part of the Government of Canada’s effort to create a stronger, more diverse, and more inclusive society.
In 2018, the town of Dunnville hosted a Gay Pride event to celebrate the diversity of the gay, queer and bi-sexual community in the surrounding areas. On the day of the event, several Christian protestors attended the event and attempted to disrupt it. While officers were dispatched to the scene, they were met with public outcry for their mishandling of the event and lack of effective resources initially directed to the event.
You will be expected to research the history of the event and the day in question as well as locate relevant social media posts, videos and content to make an assessment of the police response. The lens will be both from a security and Police Services Act perspective and social and community building relationship building perspective. Your analysis of the event, the relevant social media and legal framework will drive your critical assessment of the “actors” involved in the event. In addition, a review of public safety concerns should underpin your review of the information in its totality.
It will be incumbent on the student to locate all relevant material related to the Gay Pride event in an attempt to assess its voracity and relevancy as well as the overall concern for Government agencies and public and private sector professionals.
There will be no expectation of a presentation, simply the submission of the final paper.
This assignment will be due by 11:59 pm on Friday, December 10th, 2021.
I would like to remind everyone of Seneca College’s Academic Intregrity policies:
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY Students registered in Seneca College courses are considered to be responsible scholars and are therefore expected to conform to the highest standards of academic integrity in all written assignments, including examinations. Presenting another’s work (even a few words) as one’s own is intellectual dishonesty and may result in rejection of the submitted work, expulsion from the course or the program, or legal action, depending on the circumstances. You must fully document the sources of any quotations, information, or ideas that you use. All direct and indirect quotes, paraphrased passages, ideas, images, and tabular and statistical information that you use from other sources, including electronic sources, must be documented using an acceptable source citation style. This includes identifying, within the text of your work, anything that is not your original work. Full bibliographic information on each source cited, including the author’s name, the title of the work, the place of publication, the publisher, and the year of publication, must be given in a reference list or list of works cited at the end of your essay or assignment. Citations of online materials must include the source URL or the DOI. Further, all assignments submitted for this course must be original work written for this course. The submission of assignments or parts of assignments completed for other courses is considered academic misconduct and will be subject to discipline.
From the Course Outline on the assessment guidelines:
ASSESSMENT GUIDELINES: WRITTEN ASSIGNMENTS Written assignments will be assessed according to the following criteria: Format: Times New Roman 12-point font, double-spaced, with margins of one inch on all sides. Header/Footers are 0.5 inches. Papers may be written using APA Style or MLA for referencing, but referencing should be consistent throughout. All papers must include a References/Bibliography/Works Cited page. In-text citations: When citing the work of an author or citing a video or film in the text of your paper, ensure that you correctly acknowledge the source of the material (title, author, year, etc.). For direct quotes, enclose the passage in quotation marks with the author(s) last name, year of publication, and the relevant page number in parentheses. Writing skills: The writing should be clear, fluid, and understandable. Basic writing skills, such as grammar, spelling, punctuation, and syntax (sentence and paragraph construction) will be taken into account in the evaluation. Organization, structure, and logic: Papers should have a beginning, middle, and an end. The writer should provide an introduction, the development of the argument, and a conclusion that ties the paper together. The introduction should communicate the aims and structure of the essay as well as its theoretical framework and methodology. The middle of the paper should develop the argument, providing assertions supported by evidence. Each statement should be supported by some kind of evidence, including data, examples, citations, and/or logical reasoning. The conclusion should summarize the main points made in the paper and offer directions for future research (where relevant). Each paragraph of the paper should fit logically into the whole. Sentences and paragraphs should follow each other logically without gaps or digressions (as appropriate). Definition of key words and theoretical frameworks: The key words and analytical/theoretical frameworks that are integral to the expression and/or the development of the argument should be clearly and appropriately defined early on in the paper. Punctuality: Papers are expected to be submitted on time unless you have discussed and agreed to alternative arrangements with the instructor.
