Description:

The Canadian Museum of Civilization (CMC) (originally reviewed in the April 21, 1998 Scout Report for Social Sciences) has recently unveiled a new section that will chronicle social progress in Canada. The first two exhibits, available in both English and French, document the history of the Canadian labor movement and the evolution of Canada's electoral system. The former traces the development of organized labor in Canada from the craft movement through the creation of craft unions to postwar organizing and the challenges of organized labor in the 1980s and 1990s. Each of the six sections offers a selection of short histories and Voices, a collection of photos, texts, and audio pieces (.wav) that showcase the views of people on both sides of the struggle. The content of the second feature, on the History of the Vote, is rather disappointing, more of an advertisement for a related book than a true online exhibit. The feature contains nine "mini-sections" which briefly chart electoral history through the experiences of representative individuals or groups. A timeline and bibliography round out the section.
