What is revealed about Canada during this time period

During World War 2 Canada had become more independent because they had gained a lot of respect from Britain during the last World War. Canada fought hard during the first war and lost many brave men and women so Canada became known and a strong country. Canada's economy was getting better after King had come back in power in 1935, King was desperate to maintain national unity. Canada denied Jewish refugees to enter the country. Canada believed immigrants took jobs away from Canadians. Some cities in Canada had Jewish communities because 4000 Jewish refugees were accepted, yet the Jewish were still treated poorly. This shows that many Canadians were anti-Semites.

  1. You are right that King was desperate to maintain national unity. Do you think that maintaining it was more important than helping Jewish refugees?
