Storyboard Text

  • I am back, but where are our savings, Ginny?
  • 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.
  • Me too!
  • I am really proud to be a Canadian right now!
  • Canada's economy improves by 1925.
  • Great! Finally! 
  • 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.
