Hello. I live in the United States. Right now, it is 1918. Something tragic had just happened. A war which had killed many lives. Thankfully, it had concluded just a while ago.

The British states that the Boer war was an imperial war, meaning it was a concern to the entire empire. If Canada doesn 't help in the war and Britain loses it would then impact Canada, as Canada is still some what part of the British empire. For instance, trade would be impacted. If the British were to lose they would no longer have their ports at the South African continent therefore, anything that was once imported from or through South Africa into Canada wouldn 't be any more.

As English- Canadians stated "Canada had a duty to help Britain defend the Empire" and in order to demonstrate
In the duration of WW1 and WW2, French speaking Canadians were against being conscripted because they felt that there was no point in Canada fighting European wars. Whereas English speaking Canadians supported conscription, mostly to help out Britain in the battles. There was a choice here to either side with the English and conscript people or to side with the French and not go through with it. Canada went through with conscription.

The Canadian government had to figure out who the enemy aliens were and how they were going to treat them. The treatment of enemy aliens had many impacts on the 20th and 21st century both negative and positive. Canada has tried to right their many wrongs of the past, but no number of apologies can fix the past.
