From Our Editors

The New Democracy: Challenging the Social Order in Industrial Ontario, 1914-1925 traces the rise of labor unrest in the industrial heartland of Canada following the First World War and the 1919 provincial election. Strike activity reached unprecedented levels, indicative of a working-class unwilling to be ignored in the wake of post-war reconstruction. The situation in Ontario offers an example of the conflict felt between social classes in Canada generally and illustrates how traditional views of democracy were being redefined to reflect a growing disillusionment with the status quo.
