A look at the problematic relationship of Canadian unions and the New
Democratic Party on the eve of the 1980s, as the Socialist International meets
in Vancouver. This triggers a flashback to the Industrial Revolution in Great
Britain, and the birth of both modern trade unions and democratic socialism.
The influence of British, American and European immigration, of American trade
unions, World War 1 and other events provide a turbulent and fascinating
backdrop to the evolution of the Canadian labour-socialist alliance. Part 1.
