The Naval Issue
- Another Reason for the French-English dispute in Canada
- The British Royal Navy Protected the Canadian Shorelines until 1910
- The English Canadians wanted to help Britain pay for ships or lend some to Canada
- The French Canadians disagreed and wanted Canada to have a navy of their own
- The Naval Services Act was introduced in 1910
- Canada would have its own navy that would be turned over to Britain times of emergency
- Both sides were not in favour of this
- Nothing was solved and Canada had two pitiful, loaned ships from britain until WWII.
The naval issue was a dispute between the french and english canadians on whether Canada would have it's own navy and fleet, or be protected by the British Royal Navy.
