They didn't teach us this in high school...
Canada entered World War 2 as a newly sovereign nation. The Statue of Westminster, 1931, gave Canada complete independence from Great Britain. His Majesty's Parliament of Canada independently declared war on Germany, Japan, Italy, Roumania, Hungary and Finland.
...The 1947 Peace Treaties with Italy, Roumania, Hungary and, Finland simply list Canada as a parti to the Treaties. The Treaties were signed by, Great Britain, France, the United States and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. [Peace Treaty Italy p.5]
Disallowing His Majesty's Parliament of Canada to either sign the treaties or negotiate separate treaties, was a loss of Canadian sovereignty.
His Majesty's Parliament of Canada, in a last demonstration of sovereignty, did not ratify the 1947 Peace Treaties.
...President Roosevelt 'invented' [page 2] the United Nations less than a month after Pearl Harbour.
Originally named the United and Associated Nations, President Roosevelt stated that during the war only the Great Powers would be members and that after the war other nations would be asked to join and a charter would be drawn up.
Roosevelt gave veto power to the Great Powers - the United States, Great Britain, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and China - allies during the Second World War - the Big Four.
The greatest voting power as well as permanent seats on the Board of Directors of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund were also given the Big Four.
...Lester Pearson, Minister for External Affairs at the time, won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in creating the United Nations Emergency Force to keep the invading armies of Israel, Britain and France from attacking Egypt - the Suez Crisis.
Pearson's independent actions were an affront to the administration of the United States.
In 1957 Prime Minister Diefenbaker asked our sovereign, the Queen of Canada, to go to Washington on a, Fence mending visit after the Suez Crisis.
Canada is not a sovereign nation when our sovereign must kowtow to a foreign power.
We are simply members of the American Empire - the Allied Forces of the United Nations.
...Governments which ratified the Peace with Japan Treaty of September 1951, and sent the ratified copy of the Treaty to the Government of the United States, became members of the Allied Forces of the United Nations - the 'Cold War.'
Pakistan signed the Peace with Japan Treaty - joining the Allied Forces. Pakistan did not exist as a country before or during the war, therefore, the Peace with Japan Treaty is not about peace between former combatants.
The Peace with Japan Treaty is about creating the American Empire - governments which ratified the Treaty placed themselves in subordination to the administration of the United States. If the individual members of the Allied Forces had placed themselves in subordination to the group of nations comprising the Allied Forces - then the ratified copy of the Peace with Japan Treaty would have been placed with the United Nations - not the Government of the United States.
It is one thing to be subservient to the American Empire due to the huge economic impact it has on our lives - and quite another matter to be subservient to the American Empire through international treaties.
