Vancouver Canada has a very important Social Democratic history that is being overlooked. Got to start making major Feature Docudramas about our political/ social history. This is a good country because many of our fore bearers put their lives on the line and that has benefited many Canadians and new Canadians who enjoy Medical coverage, workman's compensation, unemployment insurance and a host of other very hard fought benefits and rights.

This is Part 2 to a two-parter about Canada in the Great Depression of the 1930s. The depression was hardest felt overall in Western Canada, with the bread basket paralyzed and the cities full of starving unemployed. Vancouver Canada suffered the worst of all the Canadian cities, with Communists and emerging Social Democrats, the CCF Party coming together many times to help organize the unemployed single men and needy families. Immigrated, British fellow RONALD LIVERSEDGE who became a lifetime communist is featured in parts A and B several times. He is a good composite character type, a veteran of WW1 in the British Army like many others who served in the Canadian forces overseas in that brutal war, typical of thousands of unemployed single men of the dirty thirties that rode the rails, worked for starvation wages in federal relief work camps, volunteered for armed action against the fascists in Spain and then many served in WW2 with Allied forces fighting Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and Imperial Japan.
