    -- Yes Canada was right to have entered Word War 2.--Canada declared war on Germany independently during World War II under Liberal Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King, three days after Britain.--- The first Canadian Army units arrived in Britain in December 1939. Canadian troops played important roles in the Battle of the Atlantic, the failed 1942 Dieppe Raid in France, the Allied invasion of Italy, the D-Day landings, the Battle of Normandy, and the Battle of the Scheldt in 1944. Canada is credited by the Netherlands for having provided asylum and protection for its monarchy during the war after the country was occupied, and the Netherlands credits Canada for its leadership and major contribution to the liberation of Netherlands from Nazi Germany. The Canadian economy boomed as industry manufactured military materiel for Canada, Britain, China, and the Soviet Union. Despite another Conscription Crisis in Quebec, Canada finished the war with one of the largest armed forces in the world

    Well, I think that Canada had an obligation to enter the war, seeing as they inadvertently caused part of it.

    Japan and Britain had once been very close allies, until their alliance expired in the 1920's. Japan wanted to renew, but Canada objected to the alliance on the grounds that it might hurt relations with the United States, which wasn't a big fan of Japan. Britain let the treaty expire, and Japan, now cut off from the ally that allowed it to remain a valid power in the eyes of the European Empires, turned to territorial expansion.

    If Canada allowed Britain to take a hit like that without entering the way... then they'd be dicks.
