In History
  • Black Canadians

    Black Canadians
    Because they were treated poorly, and were racially discriminated against I will be rating this a -2.During the war, most of black Canadians could only work construction roles, because the regiment didn't want to fight alongside them. Although Jeremiah Jones helped greatly in the Battle of Vimy Ridge, he wasn't awarded for his act after getting recognized, because he was a “black man in a white man's army.”
  • "Enemy Aliens"

    "Enemy Aliens"
    They were treated like prisoners in their own country. Which is why I would rate this a -2.The government passed the War Measures Act in 1917. Which allowed “enemy aliens” to be deported to camps with no trials. They had to work hard labour in bad weather conditions and were paid only 25 cents a day.
  • War artists

    War artists
    I would rate this a +2, because the first world war actually created opportunities for Canadian photographers and painters to hone their skills and get their names recognized. Canadian Filmmakers advanced their cinematography skills using the Polish-invented Aeroscope, in this time to. Because they were also displaying war in their films.
  • Conscription

    Conscription
    Because of how it worried Canada and the big impact it had, I would rate this -2.Conscription began a feud between french Canadians and English Canadians.
    The disagreement was so big that Capt Talbot Papineau and other high profile Canadians thought it would risk the chances of Canada's independence.
  • The Battle Of Vimy Ridge

    The Battle Of Vimy Ridge
    I would rate this a +2, obviously because Canada had gained its independence from Britain due to our war efforts and the Vimy Ridge Battle which really sparked ideas of independence. which is a big achievement for Canada
  • Prohibition

    Prohibition
    I would rate this a -2, because prohibition was a bad choice for the government because it resulted in more illegal acts, more violence and some argue more drug deaths, and lasted for more 5 years(based on the evidence)
  • Postwar Economy

    Postwar Economy
    I am rating this a -2 because at this time, Canada and its economy was struggling, due to the economy not keeping up with the increased cost of living during the war.
  • Women's right to vote

    Women's right to vote
    I would rate this +1 because PM Borden extended the vote to women in March 1918, to women aged 21 and over. Although women of colour and “enemy aliens'' didn't earn the rights at that time. However I think this was the first step to all women in Canada earning the rights.
  • Residential schools

    Residential schools
    This would be a definite -2, because the government continued with residential schools for first nations and they weren't treated like humans and because of these schools, some first nations still today suffer from long term consequences.
  • Immigration Restriction(1)

    Immigration Restriction(1)
    I would rate this a -2 A Canada-Japan agreement in 1922 restricted immigration from Japan to 150 servants and laborers per year.
  • Immigration Restriction(2)

    Immigration Restriction(2)
    I would rate this a -2 because In 1923, the federal government passed a law that virtually excluded Chinese immigrants to Canada until 1947.On July 1 1923, the federal government enacted the Chinese Immigration act. This was a law to exclude Chinese from entering Canada. for those already in Canada, trips back home to China were limited to 2 years. These were the years of Canada racially discriminating.
