Canada's New Government

"Canada's New Government" was a branding term or political slogan used by the Government of Canada during the first twenty months of the 28th Canadian Ministry under Stephen Harper. Federal government announcements referred to the "Government of Canada". Harper, leader of the Conservative Party, took office as Prime Minister of Canada on February 6, 2006. Thereafter, the federal government began to use the term as part of a marketing campaign to differentiate the Harper government from the previous Liberal Party government, led by Paul Martin. For the first few months after Harper's party assumed office, it is believed that this term was used only in high level communication and press releases from the Prime Minister's Office and the offices of federal cabinet ministers, it was applied to some government communication through the www.gc.ca web portal. Beginning in the summer of 2006, wider use of the term was encouraged by the Harper government in Canada's public service, however policies for its use were unclear.

The phrase was dropped in October 2007, with most references reverting to the "Government of Canada". Issues regarding usage of the phrase within the public service culminated in a situation where Andrew Okulitch, a retired research scientist and at that time a scientist emeritus with the Geological Survey of Canada, refused to comply with a communications directive from Natural Resources Canada that specified employees use the term, it read as follows: "As per the Minister's Office, effective the words "Canada's New Government" are to be used instead of "the Government of Canada" in all departmental correspondence. Please note that the initial letters of all three words are capitalized. Thank you for your cooperation." )This was followed with a reply from Okulitch to all recipients of the email: "Why do newly elected officials think everything begins with them taking office? They are stewards for as long as the public allows, they are the Government of Canada. Nothing more. I shall use "Geological Survey of Canada" on my departmental correspondence to avoid any connection with "New Government."

The GSC, steward to Canada's earth resources for 164 years, is an institution worthy of my loyalty, as opposed to idiotic buzzwords coined by political hacks." Okulitch received this reply to his email within an hour from Irwin Itzkovitch Assistant Deputy Minister, Earth Sciences Sector: "Given your strong though misdirected views of the role and authority of the Government as elected by the people, your duty to reflect their decisions, I accept that you are removing yourself from the Emeritus Program. I wish you every success in your future." A media frenzy ensued, deriding the federal government's treatment of the affair and Okulitch was reinstated by Deputy Minister of Natural Resources, Cassie Doyle who informed Okulitch that he would not have to use the phrase as it was not intended for "working-level people and never was." This was confirmed by Minister of Natural Resources, Gary Lunn, who said there was no expectation for anyone in the department to use the slogan. Brand management CBC.

Internalization

Internalization is the process of making something internal, with more specific meanings in various fields. It is the opposite of externalization. In psychology, internalization is the outcome of a conscious mind reasoning about a specific subject. Internalization of ideals might take place following religious conversion, or in the process of, more moral conversion. Internalization is directly associated with learning within an organism and recalling what has been learned. In psychology and sociology, internalization involves the integration of attitudes, values and the opinions of others into one's own identity or sense of self. In psychoanalytic theory, internalization is a process involving the formation of the super ego. Many theorists believe that the internalized values of behavior implemented during early socialization are key factors in predicting a child's future moral character; the self-determination theory proposes a motivational continuum from the extrinsic to intrinsic motivation and autonomous self-regulation.

Some research suggests. These early years of socialization may be the underpinnings of moral development in childhood. Proponents of this theory suggest that children whose view of self is "good and moral" tend to have a developmental trajectory toward pro-social behavior and few signs of anti-social behavior. In one child developmental study, researchers examined two key dimensions of early conscience – internalization of rules of conduct and empathic affects to others – as factors that may predict future social and competent behavior. Data was collected from a longitudinal study of children, from two parent families, at age 25, 38, 52, 67 and 80 months. Children's internalization of each parent's rules and empathy toward each parent's simulated distress were observed at 25, 38 and 52 months. Parents and teachers rated their adaptive, pro-social behavior and anti-social behavior at 80 months; the researchers found that first, both the history of the child's early internalization of parental rules and the history of their empathy predicted the children's competent and adaptive functioning at 80 months, as rated by parents and teachers.

Second, children with stronger histories of internalization of parental rules from 25 to 52 months perceived themselves as more moral at 67 months. Third, the children that showed stronger internalization from 25 to 52 months came to see themselves as more moral and "good"; these self-perceptions, in turn, predicted the way parents and teachers would rate their competent and adaptive functioning at 80 months. In behavioral psychology, the concept of internalization may refer to disorders and behaviors in which a person deals with stressors in manners not externally evident; such disorders and behaviors include depression, anxiety disorder and anorexia. In sciences such as biology, internalization is another term for endocytosis, in which molecules such as proteins are engulfed by the cell membrane and drawn into the cell. In economics, internalization theory explains the practice of multinational enterprises to execute transactions within their organization rather than relying on an outside market.

It must be cheaper for an MNE to internalize the transfer of its unique ownership advantages between countries than to do so through markets. In other words, the alternative to internalization through direct investment is some form of licensing of the firm's know-how to a firm in the target economy. In finance, internalization can refer to several concepts. "When you place an order to buy or sell a stock, your broker has choices on where to execute your order. Instead of routing your order to a market or market-makers for execution, your broker may fill the order from the firm's own inventory – this is called'internalization'. In this way, your broker's firm may make money on the "spread" –, the difference between the purchase price and the sale price." For a related issue regarding trade execution, see payment for order flow. Social influence Cultural homogenization Meissner, W. W.
