French-English Relations: Conscription Crisis 1917
Transcript of French-English Relations: Conscription Crisis 1917
The Entente thought the war would last until 1920. Prime Minister Robert Borden promised if he was re-elected he would enact conscription.
The majority of Canadians were English and supported conscription. Reasons French Canadians Opposed Conscription
-At the time Ontario was trying to abolish teaching French in schools
-They felt it was a British war, and felt no ties to Old France
-At first, they weren’t wanted!
Militia Minister, Sam Hughs, refused to allow French-Canadians to form units and said “French officers are not fit to command” French-Canadians Did Not. The war ended in 1918, very few conscripts were actually sent overseas. It was hardly worth the trouble it caused.
