      Date: April 1st
      Dear Mr. Prime Minister
      What did the PM’s do?
      Whose response was better, King’s or Bennett’s? With political cartoons!
      What is one direct consequence of the depression, and what is one indirect consequence?
    • What Did WLM King Do?
      “I will not give them a 5 cent piece”
    • What Did Bennett Do?
      (other than sending his pocket money to Canadians)
      • Tariff increases to promote Canadian goods
      • Set up work camps for single men
      • The centralized Bank of Canada
      • Spent money for gov’t funded make-work projects
      • Reformed Employment
      • Ended up spending too much… and had to cut back, making matters even worse.
    • Wait, King’s Back?
      • With Bennett’s failure, the Liberals were re-elected in 1935
      • This time, King took some action.
      • He created a new trade treaty with the USA.
      • He also provided federal grants to the provinces… so much for not giving them a 5 cent piece
    • What about the USA?
    • King or Bennett?
      For this assignment you must complete the T-chart and use it to determine whether Mackenzie King or R.B. Bennett had the best response to the depression.
    • Political Cartoons
      Who is presented in the cartoon?
      What is happening in the cartoon?Why are people in the cartoon doing what they’re doing?What kinds of symbols are being used and what are they representing?

    • So, who’s response was more adequate?
      King’s or Bennett’s?
      You decide.
      Remember about historical perspective, don’t use hindsight. Imagine you are right there in the 1930s.
