This source is explaining that because so many Canadians had died in the war, the life insurance industry has been struggling to keep up. However, Mr. Smith, the President of the Life Insurance Officers Association believes that the companies will come through, “as they have in the past” he says.
This source shows that after WW2, Canada was repaying its soldiers that had fought in the war by giving them compensation if they had life insurance. This shows the improvement of the Canadian government’s involvement with the people and relates to what we have been talking about in class.
An inquiry question that this source could help answer is “What was life insurance like after WW2?” and some further research can be made to see the opinions of the people.
