Storyline

In World War II Canada, Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King faced with an agonizing political dilemma. If Canada fully participated in the war, the matter of troop replacements would likely arise and with that, the necessity of conscription. King was well aware of the extremely explosive nature of this issue and its deeply divisive nature for English and French speaking relations. This film covers his struggle to cope with this matter and avoid the bloodshed which occurred in WWI that tore the country apart. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)
