I hope the Canada will continue to be a safe and peaceful

He believed that offering financial aid to the unemployed would only delay this crisis after which a greater downfall would follow. Using the money to generate job posts seemed to be the most practical solution, however, he never had the chance to implement his idea. Second, after his re-election followed by economic recovery, King promptly developed trade relations with the United States and pushed Canada to become America’s largest supplier of primary goods, such as lumber and wheat.
