Canada had entered the war in order to help the British Empire but many soldiers volunteered to serve at the start of the war when they didn't have to. I will be showing the many reasons, Canadians entered the war. First of all, many Canadians entered the front lines in order to chase glory. Second of all, they were forced to enter or were made fun of for not entering the war. Finally, soldiers entered the war for financial purposes to have a better life upon return and to help out their families.
