Beschreibung

The Great Depression of the 1930s brought drought, unemployment, and poverty to the West, and the token wages from the government's "make work" projects only fanned the flames of unrest. In 1935, this unrest took on a purpose: to march on Ottawa and demand a solution from Prime Minister R. B. Bennett. Thus was born the On-to-Ottawa trek, which culminated in the Regina Riot, where the protesters and RCMP clashed in one of Canada's most significant historic events. The official toll of the encounter was one dead, dozens injured, and over 100 people arrested, but noted historian Bill Waiser recently uncovered evidence that the statistics did not tell the whole story. In the course of research on the riot, he not only discovered nine previously unpublished sketches of the scene of the riot, but also found references to a second man who died as a result of blows inflicted by the RCMP--a death that was never recorded or investigated by the RCMP. A death that strengthens arguments of unwarranted RCMP brutality that night. All Hell Can't Stop Us offers new evidence and insight into the infamous uprising and violent clash that pitted suffering farmers and the unemployed against a seemingly indifferent government. Impeccably researched and entertainingly written, it will have wide appeal.
