Kirkconnell, Watson (1895-1977). Our Ukrainian Loyalists (The Ukrainian Canadian Committee). Winnipeg, Manitoba: The Ukrainian Canadian Commitee, N.D. [Circa 1943]. First Edition, First Printing. pp. 28. 8vo., measuring 5.5″ x 8.5″. Illustrated tan stapled card covers. A fervent defense of Ukrainian-Canadians in the midst of the Second World War against populist, anti-immigrant rhetoric. Light age-toning to the margins of the covers (unaffecting text). Contents remain bright, clean, and unmarked with tight, sound binding; near fine. Stapled Wraps. ”This day, June 22, 1943, is, for Canadians, a date of fascinating interest. It is the second anniversary of the issuing in Toronto, by Tim Buck, of a 4-page manifesto, calling for an immediate Communist revolution in Canada, the overthrow of British institutions, and the setting up of a Canadian Soviet Republic. Why do I recall such a poisonous document at this time? One of the most flagrant phases of the present Communist program is the campaign of slander and intrigue carried on against our large loyal communities of New Canadians. I wish therefore to defend one of these great loyal communities against a small but vociferous pack of political wolves, wolves that would tear us all to pieces if they had the chance.” (#2384) $45.00
