URBAN CANADA IN THE GREAT DEPRESSION Just as bad if not worse than the rural areas Unemployment goes up while wages come downunless The middle class and those in the professional sector are able to maintain their income because the standard/cost of living drops so significantly KING 1.0 VS.

Why trek to Ottawa? Where had the trekkers been living? BENNETT REACTS TO THE TREKKERS To negotiate or not to negotiate, that is the question. A Trekkers Memory There sat Bennett behind his desk, surrounded by officials and guards. There were the press, and in front of Bennett, the eight representatives of the trek. The Prime Minister wasted no time, but went into his diatribe of abuse, condemnation, and threats, his face crimson with hatred. He then singled out Slim Evans and roared, We know you down here, Evans! You are a criminal and a thief! At this, Slim

calmly rose to his feet, and looking the Prime Minister in the eye, he said, loudly and distinctly, And youre a liar, Bennett, and what is more, you are not fit to run a great country like Canada. The offer of negotiations, openly and cynically a trap to get the delegation to Ottawa, the heaping of verbal abuse on their heads, with no intention of negotiating, all this, even coming from Bennett, was, in the eyes of the Canadian people, shameful and inexcusable. Ronald Liversedge, BC Teachers Federation, THE REGINA RIOT The end result of the On to Ottawa Trek What can you find?
