Bienfait: The Saskatchewan Miner's struggle of
by Stephen L. Endicott
" On September 29, 1931, in Estevan,
Saskatchewan, the RCMP leveled guns and rifles at
a peaceful procession of striking coal miners,
their wives and children.  Three miners were
killed and many wounded.  The incident is know in
Canadian labour history as the 'Estevan
massacre.'  Had the massacre occurred in the
United States, the murdered miners would be folk
heroes, Most Canadians however have never heard
of this strike.  Bienfait chronicles the causes
and conditions that led to the strike and
bloodshed, the role played by organizers from the
umbrella union organization, the Workers' Unity
League of Canada and the police hunt, capture and
ensuing criminal prosecution of union members". 
The books are regularly priced at $21.95 but will
