The Canadian Dog Who Stopped the War is a childrens film. More specifically, it is a childrens Christmas film, and as such proved popular on the American cable-TV market. Even more specifically, it is an allegory, though not a heavy-handed one. Engaging in an after-school snowball fight, a group of kids learn a valuable lesson about the horrors of war-and, as indicated by the title, a little dog shall lead them. Cedric Jourde and Julien Elie head the cast.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
