Patriotic Canadians will not hoard food – Canadian World War One poster
Canadian poster from the First World War, published by the Canada Food Board in 1918. The poster shows a husband and wife standing over hoarded goods looking in panic at the silhouette of a policeman through the window blind. The poster on the top right, above the couple, warns that hoarders are eligible to be fined. The bulk of Canada’s propaganda output during the war encouraged citizens to make wise use of scarce resources, both for domestic consumption and export (Britain, for example, relied heavily on imports from Canada).
