Summary"The Swastika and the Maple Leaf is the first study of Canadian fascism. It is revealing in many ways—not only in the description of the movements themselves, but also for the response of the major political parties, the press and the public, who, in large part, were inclined to tolerate the fascist movements in these years while seeing Communism as the real threat." —Book jacket
