Prime Minister R.B. Bennett knew that Canadians were angry with the government over the economic situation. In 1935, just before an election, Bennett introduced his plan to establish unemployment & social insurance, set minimum wages, limit the hours of work, fair treatment of employees, & control prices so that businesses could not make unfair profits. The people called this Bennett's New Deal. However, in the election of 1935, William Lyon Mackenzie King was back in charge.
