Administrative history

The Labour-Progressive Party (LPP) was representative of the working classes in Canada. The Labour Party based its ideas on the Trade and Labour Congress which was formed in 1900. Sub-groups such as the National Federation of Labour Youth were organized to help different age groups of the working class. During the war with Korea, Monica Felton, a LLP supporter travelled to Korea to see first hand the war atrocities which had been committed against the people of Korea. When she returned to Canada she issued a booklet detailing her trip and what she saw. The LLP supported peace so that Canadians could acquire job security and raise their standard of living. The Party advocated a free and independent Canada from American domination. It was dedicated to peace and friendship with all the world where the democratic will of the people decided their destiny. It offered freedom from fear of unemployment in which the right to work was guaranteed. It wanted to offer a secure homeland for all from birth to ripe old age.
