James, I am so sorry! I thought I will get my money back, but inflation after the war and income taxes ate up the rest of our money.
I thought the war was going to be short, but with five million dollars in debt to the US, the country is broke too.
Don’t worry. You will find a job and things will improve.
Improve? How? With Winnipeg General Strike causing animosity between workers and employers, I probably will never find a job.
In the 1920s, returning soldiers found life difficult back home in Canada. Sergeant James is one of them, who just returned from Belgium.
James, things are looking up! Canada's agriculture continues to expand, and the demand for Canadian pulp and paper will grow. Lead, zinc, and copper will also be produce for export.
Solders thought that WWI was going to be short and victorious; however, they are wrong. By the time he returned home, Sergeant James found himself with little prospects to integrate back into society.
Winnipeg General Strike started from May 15th, 1919 to June 25th, 1919. Up to 30,000 people left their jobs, crippling the city. James was one of them.
I am really proud to be a Canadian right now!
Canada's economy improves by 1925.
Ginny and James began to enjoy all the new arts and entertainment available to all Canadians. There was a sense of optimism for the future.
Wow! Art in Canada is becoming more and more popular!
Canada's political climate also became more independent from Britain especially after the Statute of Westminster and the King-Byng crisis.
