The Canadian Left
AbstractThe Left in Canada has developed according to a pattern which is European rather than American but which has been sharply modified by factors peculiar to Canada. The first of these factors is the existence of French Canada, a submerged nation struggling for recognition as part of the Canadian Confederation; the second is the colonialism of English Canada, some sections of which tend to follow British leadership and to retain a certain British respect for law. The paramount influence on all Canada is of course the United States. The Left either yields to it or rebels against it.
