 Statute of Westminster 1931 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Statute of Westminster 1931 is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom (22 and 23 Geo.
The Statute applied to the dominions which existed in 1931: the Commonwealth of Australia, the Dominion of Canada, the Irish Free State, the Dominion of Newfoundland, the Dominion of New Zealand, and the Union of South Africa.
Since 1931 over a dozen new "Commonwealth Realms" have been created, all of which now hold the same powers as the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand over matters of change to the Monarchy (Ireland and South Africa are now republics, and Newfoundland is part of Canada).

 The Statute of Westminster (1931) - Studies on the Canadian Constitution and Canadian Federalism - Quebec History   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
In the case of Canada, one could consider that the road to independence started with the grant, to the several colonies, of a legislature and eventually of Responsible Government (1847-48).
In it Great Britain recognized that the Dominions were "autonomous communities within the British Empire, equal in status, in no way subordinate to one another in any aspect of their domestic or external affairs, though united by a common allegiance to the Crown and freely associated as members of the British Commonwealth of Nations".
Until 1982, all attempts to patriate the constitution were unsuccessful so that Canada continued to seek amendments in London and an element of colonial status remained in force (one might also add that appeals to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council existed until abolished in 1949).

 20th Century Canadian History
Canada happily obliged, eager to fight for "King and Empire." It was Canada's first major war (though Canadian troops had occasionally volunteered in imperial battles in Africa and elesewhere), and she performed very well.
In 1939 Britain declared war on Germany for a second time, and although Canada now had the right to decide such matters for herself, there was little doubt that she would follow the example of the Commonwealth leader, and start sending troops to Europe.
Canada now had 10 provinces and two territories, and spanned from sea to sea, forming the world's second largest country, just behind the Soviet Union.

 The Statute of Westminster (1931): Canada's "Declaration of Independence"
What had transpired in the twenty-five years between the two declarations was the passage of The Statute of Westminster in 1931, which was the first stage in the transformation from the British Empire to the Commonwealth of Nations.
From 1867 until 1931, each law passed by the Canadian Parliament had to be formally approved by the British Parliament, and technically, although this was rarely done, any could be vetoed.
One example of this was the border dispute between Canada and the United States over the border of Alaska in the 1890s.

 PolishRoots - PAHA Articles
At the present moment, however, the rate of growth of the Polish community in Canada equals that of the Canadian population growth rate and, I think, in the future is likely to lag behind the Canadian growth rate because of a diminished immigration rate from Poland.
In 1931, 60.0% of the total Polish population in Canada was living on the Prairies and only 29.1% in Ontario, whereas in 1961 the proportion of Poles living in Ontario was 46.2% as compared to 35.2% on the Prairies.
Statistical information on Polish immigration to Canada shows that during the period 1957-1966 the sex ratio of immigrants was definitely in favour of women: for every 1,000 females only 727 males came to Canada (10,209 males and 14,048 females).

However, Canada is one of the safest places in the world to live because the US is immediately west and south of it.

 Jack Chambers
The paltry critical recognition afforded Jack Chambers' films in the '60s and '70s by Canada's film intelligentsia is typical of the avant-garde's marginalised status during its formative period.
The initial commitment to experimental film on the part of the Canada Council combined with the cultural excitement that was rising around Expo 67 provided an economic base for the avant-garde cinema's growth in Canada.
In a 1967 interview, Chambers revealed his initial impetus to leave London, stating "The part of Canada I knew was utilitarian, puritanical, indifferent to anything that was not a 'safe job' and a 'proper living.'" Quoted in Ross Woodman, Chambers: John Chambers Interviewed by Ross G. Woodman (Toronto: Coach House Press, 1967), p.

They have been hesitant about praising their own qualities, perhaps to a fault; and those who have aspired have had the misfortune, along with the majority of the members of the family, to have been Liberal in politics in communities that were predominantly Conservative.
This was evident almost one hundred years ago, when in 1837, the Annis men were found on the side of the people as against the Family Compact which sought to impose its selfish and greedy political advantage on the common people.
