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.
