Government was anywhere and everywhere. It created the investment vehicles of war savings certificates and bonds in order to borrow money from citizens who were experiencing the financial benefits of regular paychecks. The government also put into motion the wheels of propaganda to promote its cause and to keep morale high. The Summerside people took it all in stride, Islanders generally believing in a patriotic duty to Great Britain.
Under this very broad theme of government control, the following sections have been developed: Manpower, Materials, Money, and Information. The focus is on Summerside's response, but the themes are common to any community in Canada.
