The foundation of the legislation was to impede and discourage the entry of new Chinese immigrants into Canada. Therefore, the process of racialization or what John A. Macdonald termed “biological racism” commenced . Anyone entering Canada could be questioned, confined, or refused entry based on color of skin, or other Chinese physical characteristics.

Events from the Home Front #1 - Conscription One of the most serious controversies experienced by many at the home front during WW1 was conscription. In 1914 Canadian Prime Minister Robert Borden declared that conscription would never be necessary in Canada. Only 2810 men signed up to fight during the war but the Canadian government needed more men.

Men aged 20-45 were forced to leave their families, join the war and fight for Britain.
By forcing them to return to Europe, they ultimately forced the Jews to face impending doom. All because they didn’t fit the description of what a “Canadian” looked or acted like. Nonetheless, over time these radical and racist policies decreased and in 1967 and a points system was introduced. This allowed the elimination of racial discrimination and was more focused towards the economic interest of Canada. One reference states, Canada’s point system was in the 1967 Immigration Act which gave people with higher education or certain skills a better chance into getting into Canada… This made immigration for skilled workers easier and encouraged them to come to Canada from anyplace in the world.
Enemy aliens of the first World War were the Ukrainian, Germans, Italians and Austrian/Hungary, during the second World War the Minister of Justice declared that anyone who acted in a prejudicial manner that affected one’s safety could be detained; therefore, Canadian citizens and enemies could be interned. The Ukrainians and Japanese’s were treated the The Canadian government passed laws that revoked the rights of enemy aliens to vote, work in specific places, and the right to teach their native language in schools, excluded them from conscription, leaving no rights and liberties. Enemy aliens were perceived as untrustworthy and a threat to others, this made people scared and put many innocent people in internment camps, “Even if they were not strictly Prisoners of War, civilian internees were generally treated according to international POW standards.” (Patricia E. Roy 2013). Sometimes there was no evidence of that a prisoner committed a crime or showed disloyalty but were merely discriminated because of where they came from. There were an estimated 40 camps located around Canada that held 30,000 to 35,000 prisoners.

Within schools, classes became larger in numbers due to the fact that more students were enrolling with less teachers to educate them. Overall, the Great Depression effected all of society, including education. Returning to the Philip Sheffield High School yearbook, compared to yearbooks to later come, the 1937-1938 yearbook is limited.

DATE: October-10-14 TO: Ian Fox FROM: Maitri Shah (643272) SUBJECT: Country Style getting closed Main Problem Country Style had been forced to close a quarter of its stores due to decreasing market share in an increasingly competitive Canadian market.
