Ge­orge Hara Wil­liams and the Un­told Story of the CCF

He mo­bi­lized farm­ers to support a so­cial­ist plat­form but was un­der­mined when the CCF was on the thresh­old of power.

“A mes­mer­iz­ing and long-needed his­tory of Ge­orge Hara Wil­liams, the CCF’s first Saskatchewan Leader…. Con­way has con­structed a timely nar­ra­tive about how prin­ci­pled lead­er­ship can cre­ate vi­able po­lit­i­cal move­ments ded­i­cated to pro­gres­sive so­cial change.”

— Charles W. Smith, co-au­thor of Unions in Court
