Governments and citizens must work together with an emphasis on citizen inclusion


Maintaining a country's historic values requires striking a balance between the role of the government and personal freedom. Governments support social cohesiveness, national identity, and cultural heritage preservation. They ought to respect society progress and individual liberties, nevertheless. A dynamic and inclusive society may be achieved through a cooperative approach that respects tradition while recognizing social variety and individual liberties.

 @9HD4NRNfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

This should be left to individuals. The government should not be allowed to tell us what traditional values we feel we need to preserve.


Personal values like faith are a choice of the individual, and legal values are the responsibility of the government.

 @9HHJ2CHfrom British Columbia answered…6mos6MO

Individuals. If people are not harming others, then let people live as they please. Simply put. No one is ever going to fully agree with the other persons life.

 @9HM9N66from Ontario answered…5mos5MO

I believe that the government should preserve traditional values because it is important for people to know their history and to continue them so future persons can experience and study it too

 @9HP9J48 from Ontario answered…5mos5MO

It should be left to the individuals, because if the government chooses what values you have, they aren't actually your values, they are the governments

 @9HGG7QCfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

The government should again be secular, but also it should work to protect national identity and culture, without pushing this to extreme right wing nationalism.

 @9HM8XMHfrom Ontario answered…5mos5MO

I believe a government should be involved in their nations values and traditions but it should be mainly left up to the individuals. The citizens of that country.

 @9HRW2K6from Ontario answered…5mos5MO

Values change over time in accordance to the times. History shows that most values as a nation will change with economy and technology. Traditional values are only traditional if they serve a long standing purpose.

 @9HRCL3Nfrom Florida answered…5mos5MO

I certainly believe that Citizens have a direct role to play with preserving a Nation’s values, and that the Government must work with them to ensure that.

 @9HQ33JTfrom Saskatchewan answered…5mos5MO

Unless those values are being overthrown by others, i think the government should leave it up to the individuals

 @9HPX5S9from Ontario answered…5mos5MO

Traditions are for individuals and groups of individuals, like religion it should be separate from government.

 @9HN899Vfrom Ontario answered…5mos5MO

Museums and Galleries should be federally subsidized and free, and mandated to preserve the nation's cultural history.

 @9HDV9WYfrom Alberta answered…6mos6MO

the government should be in control of a nations traditional values depending on the location in the world for different areas have different backgrounds

 @9HJCGKCfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

Yes, it is the government's duty to preserve a nation's traditional values.

 @9HN5ZG3New Democraticfrom Ontario answered…5mos5MO

I think it's up to the people to protect their traditional views rather than the government as the government handles matters and laws that affect both liberal and conservative views and one side shouldn't get most of the attention.

 @9HQ2HYZfrom Ontario answered…5mos5MO

A person who wants to keep up with a nation's traditional values should preserve the values themself.

 @9HHNR83from Manitoba answered…6mos6MO

I think that the government should still try to preserve what the country truly means, while allowing citizens to feed into keeping the countries traditions thriving.

 @9HL5PRM from Ontario answered…6mos6MO


Maintaining a nation's historic values while balancing individual autonomy and government action is a challenging topic that differs throughout cultures. Governments frequently support principles and preserve cultural heritage while allowing for individual liberties and cultural development. Government neutrality and cultural diversity provide challenges. A peaceful society requires a sophisticated approach that respects tradition while recognizing societal diversity.

 @9HHG4RXfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

When considering "Right-Wing Populism," the pivotal question arises: is it the government's responsibility to uphold a nation's traditional values, or should this role be left to individuals?

 @9HDYNFKfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

government should not interfere with any of our personal lives. Govern the country at a high level, the rest is up to us

 @9HDSKP6from Ontario answered…6mos6MO

I think when the government begins to present "traditional values", it nears on a state run society.

 @9LLTNGFNew Democraticfrom Ontario answered…1mo1MO

it should be left to everyone because we all have a responsibility

 @9LMRPJBfrom Ontario agreed…1mo1MO

There is only so much we can do sometimes the support of our government is needed to to preserve these traditions.

 @9HSV7T4from Alberta answered…5mos5MO

This question is irrelevant to me, both sides should be happy supporting their political beliefs

 @9HSPDSYfrom Ontario answered…5mos5MO

I think that should be left to individuals but it also shouldn't be the responsibility of the government to push the opposite agenda.

 @9HR7YGDfrom British Columbia answered…5mos5MO

It should be left to individuals and establishment shouldn’t be dehumanized

 @9LMRPJBfrom Ontario answered…1mo1MO

I think it is everyone's responsibility at the end of the day. There is only so much us individuals can do and sometimes we will need our government to back us up and help us out with our traditions.

 @9HS73CL from Quebec answered…5mos5MO

It should be in the power of the individuals of the nation. Whatever values are supported by the majority of individuals in a nation should be upheld.

 @9LJXC9Bfrom Georgia answered…1mo1MO

That should be left to individuals, due to everyone having their own cultures and beliefs in today's world, we as a nation should not force our beliefs onto others.

 @9LJVPFVfrom Nova Scotia answered…1mo1MO

For the most part this should be left to the individuals, but I think the government should support different traditions and culture practices in order to inspire the appreciation for them. That way we can move forward as a closer community with similar values.

 @9LLV5VQfrom Ontario answered…1mo1MO

A nation's traditional values should be left the same. If you're not happy with it, then go somewhere else.

 @9KQR724Conservativefrom Nova Scotia answered…3mos3MO

It should be both. We are a proud nation but times do change and new traditions are okay too. Just have to walk a fine line as most people don't like change.

 @9KQNB3Kfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

Governments should be responsible to preserve the nations traditional values but individuals also must uphold that

 @9KQCS2Zfrom Nova Scotia answered…3mos3MO

This is a difficult subject. Everything changes over time. The question is what are we protecting and does it still serve us.

 @9LMGBWJfrom British Columbia answered…1mo1MO

No I would t say it’s solely the responsibility of the government. I also believe these values need to be evaluated to reflect our nations inhabitants more accurately, as opposed to be rooted in outdated beliefs, history and values.

 @9LM4P8Yfrom Nova Scotia answered…1mo1MO

Depending on the value it should fall always to the individual and sometimes to the government as well.

 @9LLV2S6from Ontario answered…1mo1MO

I think it is more the government's duties to preserve the nation's traditional values because they are the ones that make the decisions for us and for us to follow.

 @9LKHV3Tfrom Ontario answered…1mo1MO

I think it should be left to the individual as I think people should have the freedom to do what they want

 @9K72Z2Wfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

 @9K6M454from Ontario answered…3mos3MO

Left to individuals, governments can care for all they want but it's still just reactionary beliefs in the end, either way, it all depends or it just mixes.

 @9HPLKNGfrom Ontario answered…5mos5MO

I think the government must find a middle ground or community assimilation of new people to Canada. Just as they did to many of our families generations ago. It didn't result in the loss of our heritage but gave us the respect and wanting to be whatever someone describes as "Canadian".

 @9HDWGHZfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

 @9LMD3D8from Alberta answered…1mo1MO

 @9K6C82DLiberalfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

 @9K544ZPfrom British Columbia answered…3mos3MO

The government has no place in deciding what traditions should be kept, it’s up to individuals to keep tradition alive.

 @9HH9CJQfrom Nova Scotia answered…6mos6MO

I have no caring about this topic but i guess leave it to the individual to do what they want
