In 1942 the CCF won the York South by-election and in 1943 held enough seats to form the Opposition in Ontario.
King and his party responded to the CCF’s success by adopting some of the party’s most popular policies, cutting off “the threat on the left” and initiating the federal government’s involvement in social and economic affairs.
Although the CCF never held national power, the adoption of many of its policies propelled Canada’s evolution into a social democracy with universal social programs, strong union movement and a state committed to creating jobs and eliminating regional disparities.
