The Extent of Canada's War Effort

Highlighting the fractured public opinion towards conscription and the "total war" effort that characterized the Canadian home front by 1942, this speech by the Minister of National Defence to the House of Commons attempted to identify the main issues of contention and examine Canada's role as it might evolve in the remaining years of the war.
