 British Commonwealth Air Training Plan
Canada had been the home of a major recruiting and training organization in WORLD WAR I, and the British again looked to it for aviators when the international situation worsened in the 1930s.
Canada agreed to accept most of the plan's costs but insisted that the British consent to a public pronouncement that air training would take precedence over all other aspects of the Canadian war effort.
After the fall of France in June 1940, the plan was accelerated, and the first of a series of transfers of RAF aircrew schools to Canada took place.

 Blue Skies and Boiler Rooms: Buying and Selling Securities in Canada 1870-1940 | Book Reviews | EH.Net
Instead of being a history of the Canadian Securities market from 1870 to 1940, which I was expecting, this book concentrates, almost exclusively, upon the high pressure and/or fraudulent techniques employed to sell speculative mining securities to the investing public, and the measures employed by Canadian federal and provincial governments to stop them.
Certainly there is much material on the various Canadian Stock Exchanges and their members, but this is a back drop to their participation in a process whereby large numbers of credulous investors were sold vast numbers of shares in numerous worthless mines year after year by manipulative promoters.
The first and third chapters do deal with the beginnings of Canada's securities markets, but no distinction is made between the creation of a formal exchange and the existence of an open market, and thus there is no discussion of why the latter leads to former.

 Canadian Golden Age of Comics, 1941-1946 - Comic Books in English Canada - Beyond The Funnies
On September 15, 1939 -- shortly after Canada's declaration of war against Germany -- the Foreign Exchange Control Board was established to oversee the rationing of foreign currency, which it did with varying severity until 1951.
In December 1940, as Canada's trade deficit with the US grew, and British gold shipments were curtailed, government intervention in the economy broadened with the introduction of the War Exchange Conservation Act.
As had been the case in 1940, growing government concern over Canada's foreign-exchange situation would provide the basis for Bell, Anglo-American, and a host of new firms to survive in the comic-book industry.

While the book does not have practical value for classroom teachers, it is accessible to both secondary and post-secondary readers providing insight into topics and issues that could spark an interest to further explore the historical lives of Canadian families.

Land of the loon, and land of the loonie--the pet name given to Canada's CAD$1 coin long before it plummeted to its current parlous low against the greenback.
If you grew up in Canada in the 1940's, the 50s, the 60s and even the 70s--or immigrated, when young, in the 20 years after World War II-- you grew up in a society very different from the Canada of the 21st century.
Rather it's a nostalgia site which recalls memories of growing up and working in Canada in the 1950s and 1960s, yet without ignoring Canada as it is now--in early 2002.
