Catholics and Canadian Socialism: Political Thought in the Thirties and Forties
This work is an impressive study of the attitudes of the Catholic church in Canada towards the challenge of socialism and progressive social change.
Catholics and Canadian Socialism draws on previously inaccessible material to review the hostile response of the Catholic hierarchy to leftist politics. The author also examines three specific instances - CCF activism in Saskatchewan, the Action liberale nationale in Quebec and the Antigonish Movement - where progressive attitudes were advanced in spite of the church's official attitude.
