Name of creator
The Communist Party of Canada was founded in 1921 as a secret society and became a public party in 1924. Banned in 1940, it re-surfaced as the Labour-Progressive Party, returning to its proper designation in the latter part of the decade. Influential in trade unions, the Communist Party has had its greatest electoral successes in municipal politics, particularly in Winnipeg. It has suffered setbacks in the 1950s with the denunciation of Stalin and again in the 1980s with the decline of Communist parties in Russia and former Soviet-bloc countries.
The material in this fonds has been removed from the Philip Jaffe fonds (F0332).
Scope and content
The fonds consists of several photo reproductions of typed statements and documents used in a meeting of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Canada, 22-23 January, 1943; the primary document being The Canker of Factionalism. The statements are from several CPC members who participated in self-criticism and confessional sessions for their errant ways.
