Dear H-Canada subscribers,
The primary purpose of H-Canada is to stimulate dialogue among scholars who study Canadian history. H-Canada enables scholars in history and related disciplines to: communicate current research and research interests; discuss new articles, books, papers, approaches, methods, and tools of analysis; and test new ideas, and share comments and tips on teaching.
The Winnipeg General Strike of 1919 was a landmark moment in North American working-class history. In May and June that year, over 30,000 workers ceased work for six weeks. Provoked by the inequities of industrial capitalism, the authoritarianism of their workplaces, the brutal experiences of the First World War, rising prices and stagnating wages, an insecure economic outlook, intransigent employers, and a federal state that responded to their demands with growing repression, the city’s workers stood together in an astounding display of unity.
