title "Animals on the Hoof: The Prince Edward Island- Newfoundland Cattle Trade, 1943-1949
creator Slumkoski, Corey
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description In 1943, even before the heaviest fighting had begun, governments across Canada, confident in victory, turned their attention to post-war planning. Memories of the recession that followed the First World War remained fresh, and politicians were determined to avoid a repeat performance. Provincial governments across Canada commissioned studies and reports on how to best maintain the booming level of wartime production during the transition to a peacetime economy. Most of these reports called for increased provincial industrial capacity, improved distribution of hydro-electricity, and the reintegration of returning veterans into the workforce. Although the provinces were in broad agreement, the reconstruction plan of Canada's smallest province was unique. Prince Edward Island was the only province to formally endorse increased trade with Newfoundland as a part of its reconstruction efforts. Indeed, increased trade with Newfoundland was a key economic policy of Premier Walter Jones.
