Changes can be seen in the difference of Canadian WWI and WW2 propaganda. While both were meant to increase support for the Allied war effort, during both wars, propaganda posters shifted from being largely word-based, informative, and humorous to being aggressive, in-your-face, and design-heavy. The federal government felt the strain of wartime demands and felt that it was necessary to make propaganda more dramatic in the hopes of not only building unity, but to cement the fear and hatred of fascism in citizens. Moreover, during WWI loyalty to the empire underscore much of what was produced. With WWII, a more nationalistic, Canada-central tone emerged. Also, the theme of good vs evil became much more heavily used.
