Canada like America had no treaties with European countries.

Canada was, however, not an independent country.

In WW2, he was initially in the Home Guard but then joined 'Air Traffic Control' and was stationed at Whithorn in Scotland and Wrexham, among other places to direct the fighting planes.

While he was on duty in the Home Guard in Barrow in Furness, England, a bomb was dropped on his house during an air raid.

Thus Britain’s declaration of war on Germany meant that Canada was also at war.

He was told that he was better suited as a watchmaker than a lawyer.

In the mid 1820s, Jean saved to buy a copy of a two-volume set of books on clock making called 'Traité de l’horlogerie' or Treatise on Clockmaking, written by Ferdinand Berthoud.

The Canadian recruits were trained at Valcartier, Québec.

The creeping barrage was used to 'great' effect in the Canadian success at Vimy Ridge where the men had been extensively trained to move forward in the 'Vimy Glide' (see image left) - a 100 yd per three minute pace which kept the infantry directly behind the barrage.

Flanders) was covered by a barrage of shrapnel and High explosive on a colossal scale, fired by over 3,000 British guns and howitzers: one 18-pounder for every 15 yards (14 m) of front, and a heavy howitzer for every 50 yards

Indeed, the best way to achieve unity above differences is by focusing not on uniting the Jews, but on building an example of unity for the world, so that the world can unite.
