One hundred years ago, delegates of the victorious Allied nations arrived in France at the Paris Peace Conference. In the following six months, they would take part in some of the most critical negotiations and decisions to reestablish peace and a new international order. With nearly 61 000 war dead, Prime Minister Sir Robert Borden argued that Canada had earned her separate representation at the peace conference and the Dominion was given two seats in the negotiations that would lead to the signing of the Treaty of Versailles.
