Canadian society coped with the difficulties of the conscription crisis of 1917. However, the end of the Great War brought new challenges. These included rising unemployment and the decline of industry, but most importantly, the frustration of farmers. The Liberals after Laurier’s death entered the election guided by leadership of Mackenzie King. Arthur Meighen is at a disadvantage both in party and government terms. And the Progressives, who support free trade for Western farmers, rely on a decentralized organization. As the first truly three-party race unfolds, and the first in which a majority of women are eligible to vote, this election makes history.
