The collaboration established with Canada during the war was an amalgam of various elements, including air and land routes to Alaska, the Canol project, and CRYSTAL and CRIMSON were the most costly efforts and efforts. By the end of June 1944, the United States had sent more than 11,000 aircraft to the Soviets; more than 6,000 tanks and hunting tanks; and 300,000 trucks and other military vehicles. … Although most of the construction of common defence facilities, with the exception of the Alaska Highway and the Canol project, was completed by Canada, most of the initial costs were borne by the United States. The agreement was that all temporary work for the use of the U.S. armed forces and all permanent construction required by U.S. forces would be paid for by the United States beyond Canadian requirements and that the costs of all other constructions of sustainable value would be covered by Canada. While it was not entirely reasonable for Canada to pay for every construction that the Canadian government considered unnecessary or did not meet Canadian requirements, reflection on self-esteem and national sovereignty led the Canadian government to propose a new financial agreement. Shortly before this brochure was released to the press, the figures for the leasing of loan transactions were published until the end of 1944.

As of December 31, 1944, total direct loans had increased from $28,270,000 to $35,382,646.000. No attempt was made to revise the brochure accordingly. Lend-lease is a continuous and growing company. Trying to keep the pamphlet up to date with the latest figures would mean that it could never appear on paper. In 1942, the loan leasing program expanded rapidly and freight volumes increased sharply. In December 1942, Lend-Leasing`s exports amounted to $607 million, the same as during the nine months of operation in 1941. When American troops entered combat posts abroad, our allies began to provide them with reverse loan assistance, without us paying for it. … The total amount of defence materials and services received by Canada through Lend`s rental channels was approximately $419,500,000. There have, of course, been cases where false goods have been sent as part of the leasing, where the correct goods have been sent to the wrong place or where objects have been misused.

However, credit advocates point out that in such cases, there have been very few cases compared to those where the right products went to the right place at the right time. Most of those who have studied the administration of Lend-leasing think it has been well managed, taking into account the stress of the time. A ship sometimes sails in a hurry; Sometimes it delays or doesn`t sail at all. To some extent, these losses and wastes are part of the credit because they are part of the war. (RCAF Station Gander) at Gander International Airport, built in 1936 in Newfoundland, was leased by Great Britain for 99 years to Canada, as there was an urgent need to move fighter and bomber aircraft to the United Kingdom. [84] The lease became redundant when Newfoundland became Canada`s tenth province in 1949. About 13% of loan aid consisted of food and other agricultural products for allied workers and their soldiers on the front lines. The question of whether we can pay our fair share of the war costs, since it is the importance of rental aid, can be addressed through the words of the Lend-Lease Act itself.
