How did the Boer war affect Canada?
The Boer War affected Canada in the way that since Britain was involved in the war, they wanted Canada to send troops to help. Canada became split by the opinions of the English-speaking imperialists, and the French-speaking nationalists. The imperialists believed that Canada should send soldiers immediately to support the Empire. The nationalists did not want to participate at all, and sympathized with the Boers. The prime minister of Canada, Wilfred Laurier, had to compromise by sending 1 000 volunteers to Africa. However, both sides were unhappy with this.
