History of Canada
Post-World War 2 Mackenzie King Administration (1948- )
As soon as he returned from Paris, Mackenzie King launched General Election, even if he still had two more years in his mandate. Mackenzie King based his campaign on his administration's success during WW2, on joining NATO and on promoting a more peaceful approach on international policies, which was opposed by John Bracken and the Progressist Conservatives, who wanted a more active plan for Canada. Still, Mackenzie won with a majority.
After the election, the first action of the Prime Minister was to call President Truman to ask for a place in NATO. He also invited NATO members to a conference in Ottawa. There, he agreed with US desire to implicate NATO in Greece, but Mackenzie King refused to send troops, instead proposing that they sold military equipment to Greece and to impose economic sanctions to countries supporting the communists in Greece.
Mackenzie King became involved in the Partition of Inida, and shown a desire for the new Indian Nation to have a similar constitution to the Canada, and that it would become like Canada and Australia a Constitutional Monarchy in the Commonwealth of Nations, an idea that was not accepted by both India and UK. When India broke negotiations, Mackenzie King's administration refused to recognize the legitimacy and independence of the new nation.
One of the main actions of Mackenzie King's international policies was the strengthening of Canadian relationship with Australia and Kurdistan. For Australia, Mackenzie King thought that in those hard times, member of the Commonwealth should stick together, which resulted in economic and military deals between the two nations. For Kurdistan, he saw in it the occasion of helping a young nation and at the same time help Canada and its dependency of oil. He even sent financing and Canadian engineers to Kurdistan in order to help them build the facilities.
