Alyn Marsh-World War 1
In the first world war Canada went to war in Europe to aid countries such as France and the United Kingdom in the many battles against Germany and Austria Hungary. Canada was in no way forced to join the war as they had separated from the British Empire 30 years prior. In my opinion Canadian soldiers aided in the fight for three key reasons. Firstly to be patriotic towards their country, showing that Canada is a strong nation. Secondly to show pride in themselves to receive praise from the countries and there people. Thirdly to show the world what it means to be Canadian whether that be by showing kindness towards allied countries or fearlessness and ferocity towards their enemies.
