America's involvment in WWII was minimal, and only had support when their lifesyle was threatened by a failing economy.
Canada was in it from sq 1.

minimal?
don't get
carried
away

casualty's by country (http://www.world-war-2.info/casualties/)
financial cost by country (http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/FWWcosts.htm)

ya but they fought two years earlier... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_history_of_Canada_during_the_Second_World_War

and the cost in your link is dated 1914??

you are correct
but it is in "1914-1918"
dollars to give it a baseline value
to avoid counting some of the hyper inflation
in alot of countries at the time

wikipedia is not a valid source
but your point is taken because
Canada was still a part of the British Empire
at the time and still recognizes the Queen as Soveriegn
therefore they were technically involved in 1937

ahhh that makes sense (re1914)
and this isn't a debate
or even a argument
so wiki is a perfectly acceptable and valid source
for information
about the contribution Canada made to freedom
and its use doesn't detract from the idea
that solders from any country should get respect ;)
