Photo taken during WWI in Saskatchewan Canada, about 1917.

During WWI there was no "consciencious objector" status in Canada.
Eventually they were given non-combatant jobs.

Everyone in this picture was professing or closely associated.
Because of their faith, they refused to bear arms
and most were locked up in the Regina Saskatchewan jail together.
