In this essay, the writer reviews the history of the labor and socialist movement in Canada. The writer includes the development of the CCF and also their union with labor to form the NDP. The writer takes a look at capitalism using the US as a model with a few quotes from Lenin. The writer's basic conclusion is that big business is squeezing out state mandated welfare.

From the Paper:

"The present state of welfare and social services throughout Canada has evolved a number of times due to a number of different social and economic factors. These include but are not limited to policies that are commonly thought of as socialist, such as trade unions and various workers' rights organizations; and practices that are generally agreed to be more capitalist in nature and therefore more laissez faire with regards to social welfare than their more leftist counterparts. The New Democratic Party of Canada, which began as the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation, were often pitted against the heads of various corporate interests regarding not only how social assistance programs should be managed, but whether or not they should even exist at all."
