What If...


While "If Day" was a propaganda event designed to increase the sale of war bonds, it gives a look into how life could have been if the Germany war machine had not been halted. Had this happen, I somehow doubt that there would have been any Canadians cutting down trees in the middle of Riding Mountain or working on the fields with little supervision!

For more information about If Day, check out this article or Wikipedia's entry.

  1. Never heard about this! Yes, that would have been an eye-opener, especially if you didn't know beforehand that it was staged.
