Republican formations in Canadian history

Some months ago, in a rare moment of inebriated lucidity while stumbling home from the Grad Club, it occurred to me that just because "leftism" wasn't a force in Canada before the 1890s, it didn't preclude the possibility of there being pre-socialist oppositional formations.

Not really a history of London, Ontario

Reading Fred Landon is fun because I actually know most of the little farming communities he's talking about. I grew up in London, Ontario, and have come to love it and the surrounding countryside. It's a strange development since I was so eager to escape from the place when I was in high school. Maybe I just like London because my parents' fridge is usually full.
