The years following the end of the Great War were among the most tumultuous in Canadian history -- in the words of Stephen Leacock, a time such as there never was before. A country emerging from colonial status had sent 600,000 soldiers to war, where 60,000 were killed and many more wounded, and now 300,000 men were coming home. The war had been a great crusade for civilization, but it had stressed the many fault-lines in Canada. Farmers, businessmen, feminists, social reformers, and minorities, to name a few. All had impossible hopes, vociferous demands, and irrational fears. Anyone trying to lead such a country, wrote journalist J.W. Dafoe, would have to do things that cannot be done ...and whatever he does will have more critics than friends. Gradually normalcy returned. But nothing could ever be the same again -- the time such as there never was before had given birth to a new country.
