    Canadians were required to go abroad and fight for the British Crown; many loyalists didn't have a problem with it, but others, feeling that Canadians were considered second-rate citizens of the British Empire or that they weren't subject of the crown, felt that they would be used simply as cannon fodder or human shield for the British troops.

    So naturally, when the Government instigated a conscription, or forced participation to the war, many (especially in the Quebec Province) either rebelled against it or went into hiding.

    Those who did go however fought with little-to-no training, inadequate gear and murky leadership, but still fought valiantly and relentlessly. Canadians were thus starting to be viewed as a people who forget their own interests and welfare to go help a friend in need, as well as a people with great courage.

    As for the cause, it is intricately webbed into European political history. In a nutshell though, the immediate cause what the assination of Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne of the Austria-Hungary alliance, by a Serb terrorist. Hungary declared war on Serbia as retaliation, which triggered a series of pacts and treaties between world powers where some were bound to join others if they were under attack, or forced others into joining their allied if non-aggression deals were disregarded. As I said, a little complex to explain briefly...
