A controversial question about the baby boom was weather or not the baby boom would have happened if the Second World War did not happen would the baby boom have occurred? No the baby boom would not have happened if the second world war had not happened because many of the men met their brides at war and took them back into Canada which resulted in the baby boom. The baby boom first started at the end of the war in late 1940’s and 1950’s and kept growing till the 1970’s. The historical impact of the baby boom was it
