C.C.F politician

You worked as a council member during 1932, and there was a provincial election coming up in 1934. When did you start thinking about the provincial election?

In 1933 when the national convention was held in Regina, I arranged for Mr. Woodsworth to come and speak in the rink at Weyburn. The other man who came was later a Liberal Member of Parliament, Elmore Philpott. This was the first really big political rally we had apart from Mr. Coldwell's meeting in connection with the I.L.P. I felt that these farmers, the workers, and the unemployed people who had been coming to me had finally found a vehicle of their own, and that now I could drop out and get on with my work.

I didn't think about politics at all until the spring of 1934, when the new Farmer-Labour party was looking for a candidate.
