Canada and the British Army 1846-1871: A Study in the Practice of Responsible Government (London: Longmans, 1936).
The Canadian Government appointed a correspondent in England to "give the public of Canada an account of the performance of Canadian troops" and that this would be done "by means of daily cables." The correspondent was an expatriate Canadian, Sir Max Aitken (better known as Lord Beaverbrook).
Before this could be done, Cruikshank believed that it would be necessary to write an account of military development in Canada prior to the outbreak of war in 1914, and he proceeded to do just that.

 Relations with Canada 1895-1939: Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage
In the hearings, Canada and Newfoundland presented a joint case, which was largely sustained by the court.
Over the years, Canada and Newfoundland developed closer links, and it might be said that the island gradually moved from a North Atlantic to a North American orientation.
This was because Canada became largely responsible for the defence of Newfoundland and Labrador, and Canadians came to realize their future and that of Newfoundland were inextricably linked.

Canadian meteorologists were as unprepared for war as the military and had to adapt rapidly in the fall of 1939.
In the fall of 1939, the immediate need was for forecasting along the east coast for airforce and navy surveillance of the Atlantic.
There was a major difference in the North American approach to meteorology: Canada followed the British lead in having its civilian service provide the expertise and staffing for military purposes - though not without initial resistance from the rcaf and continued resistance by the rcn - while the Americans did not.

Young Canada was often portrayed as a virginal woman or as a healthy frontiersman, and the ideals of purity, industry, and self-discipline were celebrated as essential features of the Canadian identity.
The authors argue that though the law played a significant role in giving Canada a moral cast, the law's homogenizing tendencies did not always meet with anticipated success, as values deemed 'good' by the government were constantly repudiated by those on whom they were imposed.
Certain themes which run throughout the book include the concept of the internal threat to the foundations of national decency, the influence of the United States on Canada's moral order, and the regional discrepancies in the success of moral governance.
