Canada: THE DOMINION: The Price

Parliamentary fact-finders last week finished adding up the cost to Canada of World War II: $20,255,865,996 (including demobilization and reconversion items up to March 31). In addition, Canada during the war years gave away $3,230,452,079.19 in cash or goods to nine allies (most of it to Great Britain).
