 H-Net Review: Kevin Brushett <3ktb@qlink.queensu.ca> on The Workers' Revolt in Canada, 1917-1925
For historians documenting Canada's rise from "Colony to Nation," such embittered class conflict became an important signpost of Canada's journey from a colonial backwater to a modern industrial nation.

Though Heron notes that workers made key strategic and tactical errors, the workers' revolt foundered mainly on the structural impediments which all counter hegemonic projects face--the inhospitable rocks of the fragmented Canadian economy, class formation and the combined forces of capital and the state who were reluctant to concede one inch of territory to workers.
