How the War Changed our International Identity
What does democracy mean to you, knowing so many Canadian soldiers gave their lives for the preservation of this process?
Value of Canada’s gross domestic product (total value of all goods and services produced)
World War II is often called the good war?
It was a good war. I’m not talking about a good war from the standpoint of a high moral purpose. If going out and killing millions of Germans to get Hitler off his pedestal is a high moral purpose, then I’m all for it.
But it was a good war for Canada too, because it made us a great nation. I mean it showed what we could do. We just weren’t a bunch of wheat farmers and Nova Scotia fishermen and lumberman in BC. We were a nation. A big and tough and strong nation.
