In August 1914, Canada joined World War One, 'the war to end all wars'. In this tour I hope to show you why so many men were willing to risk their lives to fight. You will see the various 'pull' factors that, drew men into the war, including the social and political causes. Later in the tour, you will see some of the factors that pushed men away from the war. These 'push' factors caused many men to shy away from the combat. I hope that through this tour you will be able to better understand what was going through the men of Canada's heads as some of them went to fight in the war, and as some of them they stayed home.
