The purpose of this paper is to identify and track Canada's perceptions of its changing place in the world as a result of the two world wars, with respect to loyalty and nationalism. Its objective is to link these changing perceptions to broader socio-cultural, economic and political ideas socially and economically. It shows how throughout the course of history, Canada is tracked as at first giving allegiance to Britain, as it was a British colony and how, under the guidance of Mackenzie King, Canada changed course and began to emulate the United States, politically, socially and economically.

From the Paper:

"Secondly, Canada was tied to Britain socially " Britain was a supplier of immigrants. Immigrants satisfied a variety of purposes, for example, the transportation of lumber from Canada to Britain was paid for by immigrants" "Efficient use of the equipment used for shipping those heavy, bulky wood products eastward across the Atlantic demanded an equivalent cargo in weight and volume pay its way westward" (Zerker 10). While the immigrants provided labor for the British colony, they also facilitated the lumber trade through immigration to Canada, such that the transportation of lumber was paid for. Thus in Canada's earlier years, Canadian loyalty to Britain increased, since apparently Canada's well-being depended on Britain's."
