The Canadian Fuhrer

This is the first independent biography of the leading Canadian fascist of the 1930s and 40s, Adrian Arcand. As a journalist and political organizer, Arcand was a fierce advocate of the anti-democratic views of fascism, a virulent anti-Semite, and an admirer of Hitler, Mussolini and other fascist leaders around the world. Imprisoned for his views during the Second World War, Arcand emerged to promote his ideas for three more decades. He was an early Holacaust denier, a lifelong apologist for Hitler, and an influence in right-wing politics in Canada in the 1950s and 60s.

Rene Levesque

A shrewd politician, René Lévesque made Quebec separatism a reality. The Parti Québécois thrived because of his passion, integrity, and considerable charm. It has been said that when he spoke to someone, he gave the feeling that he or she was the most important person in the world. In an era when some preferred to use firebombs to get their point across, Lévesque wanted Quebeckers to vote on separation. But in May 1980, the people of Quebec voted a resounding "no." For Lévesque, it was the end of a dream.
