    Curiously enough given Stevens BC base the Reconstruction party did better in the eastern provinces. In the west it was the CCF and the Socreds that did the most damage. Recall that the prairies were the Conservatives weakest region between the wars – they did better in Quebec than on the prairies!
    But a great photo.

      Thanks for raising this, Ken. This was a function, was it not, of first-past-the-post rewarding high concentrations of partisan support in specific areas (like SoCreds in Alberta in 1935) and punishing more widely dispersed support (like Reconstruction)? Thanks for commenting.
