Canada’s response:

-Canadian gov’t thought the war would be a quick and decisive victory
-French Canadians were very reserved about Canada’s participation in the war, “not our war”
-There were a few French enlistments as they were still bitter about gov’t policies on the French language and education in the west of Ontario

-claim of land, the people and the resources
-the build-up of a county’s army, navy and eventually air force

· Patriotism turned into acts of intolerance, racism, and discrimination in Canada
· Enemy aliens were fired from their jobs
· 6000 people were sent to work camps or prisons
· The 1913 economic depression had increased bitterness towards immigrants
How WW1 changed Canada:
· Canadians began to expect the worst when armed guards began to appear on bridges, canals, and Railways
· Two submarines were purchased from the US to protect BC’s coastline
· In the beginning the war effort was largely dependent on volunteers (1915-1916)
· Order industries profited from war (‘profiteering’) by producing supplies to help other countries
· Canadian wheat farmers were feeding the war, so they began to plant unsuitable soil which caused “dust bowl” conditions and contributed to the 1930’s depression
· Canadian lumber and paper products were sent to support the war effort
· Canada began to borrow money to finace the war:
· $185 million in 1914
· $574 million in 1917
· Countries who participated in the war assumed enormous debt as result
· Canadian gov’t began to sell victory bonds to raise money for the war effort
· More gov’t participation in business and everyday life:
