Canada's timeline in the interwar period
Transcript of Canada's timeline in the interwar period
It was important because Canada was starting to show that they strongly care for their citizens, at the time. Canada obtained a separate seat and a separate signature from Britain. Canada then was given a separate seat in League of Nations, the late United Nations.
Canada appeared in the international stage as an independent country. Agnes Macphail was elected as first female member in Parliament 1921 Agnes Macphail won her riding in rural Ontario to become the first female member in Parliament.
She called for prison reform and founded the Elizabeth Fry Society of Canada which aimed in helping women being imprisoned.
Macphail's success in election exhibits women's changing in role in the society and rising in status. Britain sent troops to Port Chanak in order to prevent Turkey from obtaining the waterway from Black Sea through Mediterranean.
Prime Minister of Canada Mackenzie King claimed that Canada would not be automatically in war and the Canadian parliament would decide on whether sending troops or not.
Canada, at the first time, did not take part in British issues and act independently. Canada autonomy was indicated. Halibut Treaty 1923 Canada and US signed a treaty for protection of Halibut on the coast of British Columbia and Alaska. Though the treaty never came into effect, the process of negotiating and signing the treaty was the first time Canada independently dealing with foreign issues without regarding Britain's opinion.
