Sean McCann as MacKenzie King.

Tape combines archival footage with excerpts from The King Chronicles. From the beginning of the war, MacKenzie King tried to avoid conscription, lest civil war broke out in Canada. In spite of delaying tactics, he had to make that decision in the final year of the war.
