The goal of the requirement at the University of Winnipeg is to develop “mutual respect and understanding” (Narine, 2015) between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.

for men between the ages of nineteen and 25. Most of these men though did not want to go to a foreign country to fight for a country, a flag, or an ideal that they did not believe in. Some of them had the option to stay at home if they had physical problems, were attending college, or were needed at home to support their families. But, the ones that were unlucky and didn’t have any excuse had to go and fight the war unless they fled to Canada.
