Waiting for minimum critic reviews


At the end of World War I, Canada was poised on the brink of social revolution. At least that is what many Canadians, inspired by the Russian Revolution, hoped and others dreaded. Seeing Reds documents a turbulent period in Canadian history, when in 1918-19 a fearful government tried to suppress radical political activity by branding legitimate labor leaders as “Bolsheviks.”
