The Dirty 30s

The reason Bnnett buggy was called after his name was because he didnt help on the gratedepratin. A Penny's Worth
Today few people would stoop to pick up a penny. However, many years ago, I learned the value of that lowly coin the hard way. Prime Minister R.B. Bennett.
came to power by promising to aggressively fight the Great Depression. The Canadian public gave him the full blame for the failure of his promises and the misery of the Depression and tossed him from power in 1935. Mackenzie King was Prime Minister of Canada at the beginning of the Great Depression. His government was slow to react to the economic downturn, was unsympathetic to the problem of unemployment and was turfed from office in 1930. Mackenzie King and the Liberals were returned to office in 1935. Back in office, the Liberal government responded to public pressure and the federal government slowly began to take some responsibility for social welfare.

A crowd in Vancouver protests Canadian relief policies in 1937 during the Great Depression in Canada. As the economic depression deepened in the early 30s, and as farmers had less and less money to spend in town, banks began to fail at alarming rates. During the 20s, there was an average of 70 banks failing each year nationally. After the crash during the first 10 months of 1930, 744 banks failed – 10 times as many. In all, 9,000 banks failed during the decade of the 30s. It's estimated that 4,000 banks failed during the one year of 1933 alone. By 1933, depositors saw $140 billion disappear through bank failures. Many Canadians of the thirties felt that the depression wasn't brought about by the Wall Street Stock Market Crash, but by the enormous 1928 wheat crop crash. Due to this, many people were out of work and money and food began to run low. It was said by the Federal Department of Labor that a family needed between $1200 and $1500 a year to maintain the "minimum standard of decency." At that time, 60% of men and 82% of women made less than $1000 a year. The gross national product fell from $6.1 billion in 1929 to $3.5 billion in 1933 and the value of industrial production halved.1 This Photo shows

Honourable R. B. Bennett

Dear Sir

Please forgive me for asking you for help. Since I have not been able to get anything from the council after several requests I thought of contacting you, maybe you won’t say no. I worked for you a few years ago and I will work again in the future. I have been sick for the past 5 years, 4 years ago, I spent 6 months in the hospital and since then I’ve always done what I could to give my family what they need today I can’t do anything at all. I need to go back to the hospital right away, the doctor told me that I can’t live much longer without care. I have 6 young children, I’m 42 years old I don’t have money, we don’t have any more food, no clothing all we are — think about it my dear Mr. R.B. Bennett a cold winter like we’re having. The children complain because they’re hungry and cold I can’t give them what they ask for to tell the truth it’s very sad —

I hope my letter will be considered and to receive a reply soon

The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations, but in most countries it started in about 1929 and lasted until the late 1930s or early 1940s.[1] It was the longest, most widespread, and deepest depression of the 20th century.
