In 1920 Canada took a huge step in getting control over its own affairs. In 1921 Canada’s new
Prime Minister, Mackenzie King wanted to have canadian autonomy and the next 10 years gave him many opportunities. In 1922 Britain got involved in a conflict with Turkey and asked Canada to help if war broke out but, the Prime Minister said that Canada is it’s own country and won’t be forced by Britain to do anything anymore. Soon in 1920’s and 1930’s Canada became more isolationist as Canada tried to stay out of political affairs with other countries.The Prime Minister Mackenzie King made it crystal clear that Canada can decide on its own foreign policy.
