Winnipeg: Socialist Party of Canada, 1936-38. First Edition.

Vic & UBC), with no holdings in the United States. Content focuses on radical activities in British Columbia and Manitoba; named contributors include William Child Currey, J.A. McDonald, F.J. McNey, R.C. Walker, others; most articles signed only with initials. WEINREICH 5409, apparently unaware of any issues after 1933. Eleven original monthly issues.

Includes: Vol 3 (1936): nos.30, 33-35; Vol 4 (1937), nos 36-38,41,45; Vol 5 (1938): nos 44,46.
