    -2   Start of WW1: The Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his pregnant wife
    The Assassination of Franz Ferdinand and his wife was the main event that started WW1. The heir was assassinated because of the sudden militarism in Germany and Austria-Hungary which convinced European countries that a unification was to come. After the assassinations, Austria-Hungary declares war on Serbia, the first of many declarations of war during WW1. I think that this event is one of decline, because it started a war that killed 40 million people and a war that put many countries in debt.
  • -1 The Battle of The Somme

    -1 The Battle of The Somme
    The Battle of the Somme was overall the worst battle for Canada in terms of number of casualties. Even though the battle was won by The Allies, it resulted in the deaths of over 3 million soldiers, 24,000 of which were Canadian. The Battle of Somme took almost half of all Canadian deaths in WW1. Misinformation and Misleading by commanders are one of many factors that contributed to the number of deaths that took place at The Battle of The Somme.
  • +2 The Battle of Vimy Ridge

    +2 The Battle of Vimy Ridge
    The Battle of Vimy ridge is the most successful Battle for The Canadians that took place in WW1. The Battle of Vimy Ridge took the lives of 20,000 Germans, but only 4,000 Canadians were killed. Vimy Ridge is look upon as one of Canada's greatest military achievements, as its victory helped the allies obtain more information on German attacks. The Battle of Vimy Ridge is also one of Canada's first tests of nationalism and pride.
  • +2 Woman's Suffrage: Women allowed to vote

    +2 Woman's Suffrage: Women allowed to vote
    During WW1, women supported Canadian soldiers overseas by working up factories, being nurses, and manufacturing weapons. As a result of women's contribution to the WW1, the government decided to give the right to vote for women who were nurses, and women who had family who were serving in the war. In my opinion, I think that Women's suffrage was the most important right given to women, because even though the right to vote is a small privilege, it started a foundation for equality.
  • +1 End of WW1

    +1 End of WW1
    The armistice of November 11th at the 11th hour of 1918, marked the day the Germans surrendered in WW1. Several months later on June 28th, 1919, Germany and the allied nations signed The Treaty Of Versailles that officially ended WW1. The Treaty of Versailles limited Germany's power, which angered many German civilians and was the foundation for WW2. At the end of the war, a total of 66,000 Canadian soldiers have died and 172,000 other Canadian soldiers were wounded while in service.
  • -2 The Spanish Flu

    -2 The Spanish Flu
    The Spanish Flu was an influenza pandemic that was active from 1918 to 1920. The Spanish flu killed 55,000 Canadians and killed 50,000,000 worldwide. The Spanish flu mostly killed people who were in their prime (20-40 years old), which was very unusual. The Spanish Flu also forced many businesses to shut down and it reduced the number of working people on the field. The government took action by implementing a quarantine very similar to the one we have today.
  • -1 Winnipeg General Strike

    -1 Winnipeg General Strike
    The Winnipeg General Strike was Strike where more than 30,000 workers left their jobs to protest their wages. The Winnipeg General Strike lasted 6 weeks, and is the largest strike in Canadian history. The Winnipeg General Strike has inspired many Canadians to stand up for their unlawful salaries. On June 21st, 1919, protesting strikers were beat by police leaving 30 injured and 2 dead. This incident is now know as Bloody Saturday and a memorial for the 2 dead were held later that day.

    +2 Insulin is found: Frederick Banting and Charles H Best
    In 1921, Frederick Banting and Charles H Best founded insulin at the University of Toronto. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that helps normalize your blood sugar. People with diabetes have a pancreas that is not able to produce insulin which causes their blood sugar to be abnormal leading to fatal injuries. Today, insulin has saved the lives of million of people and has given people with diabetes an opportunity to live a longer life.
  • -2 Chinese Exclusion Act

    -2 Chinese Exclusion Act
    The Chinese Exclusion implemented in 1923 banned the Chinese from entering Canada. Only students, government officials, and Canadian born Chinese were allowed to return or immigrate to Canada. Many Chinese men came to Canada to raise enough money so their family and children can immigrate to Canada as well. But when the Chinese Exclusion Act was passed, Chinese men no longer were able to bring their family over and many of them were left to live alone in Canada.

    +2 Emily Murphy and the Famous five
    Emily Murphy was a woman's activist that helped woman obtain the rights they have today. She and the famous five were able to convince the government to allow the appointment of women into The Senate. With women in The Senate, women will be able to contribute to the rights of all Canadians. The Supreme Court already rejected the’, but Judicial Committee in the UK, accepted their appeal. With the success of their case, women were now finally recognized as people and no longer property.
