8 Created in 1932 in Calgary, Alberta It was created by a number of socialists, farm, corporative and labor groups, and the league for social reconstruction It aimed to lessen the great depression through public corporation and social reform In 1933, the party went to Regina where they elected James Shaver Woodsworth as its first president The party set out its goals when they adopted the Regina Manifesto. One of their goals were to create a mixed economy by Nationalization They planned Nationalization of key industries and establishing a Welfare State It would include: universal pensions, health and welfare insurance, children's allowances, unemployment insurance, workers' compensation and similar programs J.S Woodsworth

9 It gained support from Ontario, British Colombia and Saskatchewan and triumphed the election of a CCF government in Saskatchewan in 1944 The pressure from the CCF encouraged Mackenzie King’s Liberal government to provide social welfare measures The party leaders: i.J.S Woodsworth - August 1, March 21, 1942 ii.Major Coldwell - March 22, August 10, 1960 iii.Hazen Argue - August 11, August 2, 1961 Unfortunately, during the cold war the CCF was accused of having communist, dictatorial leadings The party addressed these accusation in 1956 by replacing the Regina Manifesto document with the “Winnipeg Declaration” The party did very weakly in the election of It won only eight seats

10 The background is the flag for ‘the red scare’ where the hammer and the sickle symbolize the unification of the workers and the peasants. The star represents the communist party The First red scare took place in , and was marked by a widespread fear of anarchism and communism Tensions were elevated due to violence by various groups inspired by the Bolshevik revolution in Russia and the ensuing Russian Civil War In 1919, a plot was set up to send 36 bombs to a variety of places. On June 2 nd, bombs exploded in eight different cities within the same hour The common view was that communists were planning to overthrow democracy. The ‘Red scare’ was the threat against the capitalists

14 Formation of On To Ottawa Trek - In the there were many fierce battles, one highlight was the general strike of young unemployed single men in work camps located in British Columbia (Canada’s west coast) - They received 20 cents a day for 6 and half days a week - They left the camps and congregated to Vancouver - After 2 months of unsuccessful struggle they took their case direct to Ottawa, the nations capital 3000 miles to the east - This is how the On To Ottawa Trek was formed

15 What Is The On To Ottawa Trek - The journey began on June 3 - The rode railway freight cars across mountains and prairies - They reached Regina, only half way through - They were stopped by RCMP (Royal Canadian Mountain Police) - One month later the strike was brutally smashed (July 1 st ) during a police-inspired riot and its leaders arrested

16 After the On To Ottawa Trek - - This strike and trip captured many Canadian hearts and minds - - A few months after wards when the federal elections came around the prime minister R.B. “Iron Heel” Bennet went down to resounding defeat - The new liberal government felt compelled to abolish the camps

17 William Aberhart “Bible Bill” William Aberhart was also known as “Bible Bill” for his religious preaching, Aberhart became interested in politics during the Great Depression He was interested in the “social credit” theories of Major C.H Douglas, a Scottish engineer. From 1932 to 1935, Aberhart lobbied for the governing political party, the United Farmers of Alberta, to discuss these theories The meaning of social credit is that the difference in production cost and individuals' purchasing power should be attached through government grants.

18 William Aberhart established the Social Credit Party of Alberta in 1935 He promised each citizen a “prosperity certificate” of $25 a month to buy necessities His government was not able to apply most of their rules, because the social credit concept relied on control of the money supply and of the banks, both of which were the responsibility of the federal government of Canada Social Credit Party of Alberta

19 Social Credit remained in power in the province until the1971 election 1971 election was won by, The Progressive Conservative Party Election of 1940 Aberharts government was re-elected This time they had a little more control in the province's financial industry by creating the Alberta Treasury Branches in 1938
