Canada in World War 2 - The Home Front Economy Via Comicbook

This page comes from the Canadian Heroes Comic that featured the story of Leon Panzer, published in during wartime in December 44/January 45.

The first inside page of Canadian Heroes exhorts it's readers not try and get around the wage and price controls put in place to fight inflation during World War 2.

Canada undertook to establish some very strict controls on the economy during the war. Canada continued these policies after the war ending wage controls in November 1946.

Interesting to see an appeal for workers to save and not to violate wage and price controls in a comic book targeted at kids.
