With the outbreak of WW 1 and Canada's subservient entry as British cannon fodder, the federal government effected a number of articles in the War Measures legislation embodied in the British North America Act.

Just think, we could be lining up for bread, even today, in Canada.


You might even get it, if you belong to the Party.

Everyone being able to get bread instead of just the wealthy? That's the hope.

We've seen that experiment. It didn't work then, it won't work now. The wealthy get killed off really early on. The workers end up begging for basics.

They killed workers by the tens of millions in Bolshevik Russia and during the Great Leap Forward.

Who is the idiot, here?

Good answer. Glad to know that you're on top of your material, Junior.

Drastically inflating the number of dead is your first error, than equating a famine to intentional murder. capitalist countries have suffered from far worse famines in history, British India for one example.

Off topic but, only initially were they British cannon fodder. Once they came under the command of General Sir Arthur Currie, the Canadians never lost a battle to the Germans, and even handed them their a$$es on a few occasions.
The Germans had little regard for the Continental armies and the rest of the British army. On the other hand, they feared and respected the Canadians and even nicknamed them "Sturmtruppen" after their own elite soldiers, who were the best of the best in the German army at the time.
