Storyboard Text

  • On April 10th, Canadians captured Hill 145, which was the highest point on the ridge. By April 12th, they had taken "the pimple", which was the last German position. They all put their hands up in the air and waved them happily. Anthony then thought of how his best friend Joe said to make our mother country proud. He felt content because he just accomplished that
  • This was an outstanding victory for the Canadians. The Vimy Ridge Battle marked the first time when Canadian divisions attacked together. This victory led to national pride, and a strong reputation of being an elite fighting force
  • Were proud Canadians!
  • In October 1917, Currie (Byng's replacement) and the CEF were asked to break through German lines and retake Passchendaele, Belgium. Haigh's previous attack left shell craters along with a muddy bog. The Canadians captured Passchendaele. This "victory" led to more than 200 000 casualties on each side along with 15 000 Canadians. The allies only gained 7-8 km and the Germans soon recaptured the town
  • I'm sure Currie willbring more independence to Canada!
  • I can't believe Byng was promoted for his role at Vimy and how General Arthur Currie is replacing him!
  • Before 1914, jobs for women were limited. During the war, industrial production increased creating a demand for labour. Women got jobs such as, operating fishing boats, working as teachers, nurses and on farms. Derek's wife started operated a fishing boat to provide for her family
  • We believe our contribution to the war effort should allow us to make decisions about how our country is run
  • Without women's efforts, Canada's wartime would have collapsed. In 1918, women were granted the right to vote in federal elections.
  • WOMENS RIGHT TO VOTE
  • On December 6th, 1917, the SS Mont Blanc ( a French Vessel carrying explosives) accidently got hit by another ship. The explosion was massive that is devastated Halifax's harbour
  • Bordon realized there was strong opposition to conscription from many parts of Canada. Henri Bourassa thought had spent enough money on war and sending more troops would bankrupt the Canada. In 1917, the Khaki election took place where men and women working overseas and women related to servicemen could vote. This was an attempt to win support of people serving during war
  • When war begun, Prime Minister Bordon promised there would be no conscription. But many men were needed to win the battle at Vimy Ridge. In 1917, Bordon introduced the Military Service Act which meant all Canadian men from the age of 20-45 had to go to war. People were against this because they felt they were contributing to the war enough and didn't want to give up their jobs
