I am required to write an essay for two of the three topics from the Final Exam

I am required to write an essay for two of the three topics from the Final Exam Outline:
Option 1: During the course, we have considered how Canada recognizes the rights of persons,
yet reserves for the government the right to suspend some of those rights. Based on these
facts, evaluate if Canada can justifiably be considered a democracy.
Option 2: Compare and contrast two concepts introduced in Canada during the 1960s: the status
of Indigenous persons as ‘citizens plus’, and ‘sovereignty association’ for Quebec. Evaluate
whether either, or both, of these concepts should be incorporated into Canadian governance.
Option 3: Compare and contrast how Canada’s approach to use of military force and international
trade has significantly changed since 1980. Evaluate whether this change is a sign of Canada’s
increasing international power or increased subservience to the interests of other, stronger
powers.
All information used to formulate your answer should come from the coursework files attached below and have been labelled regarding its contents.
