Roscoe Fillmore was an outspoken advocate of radical political change in Canada. Written by his grandson, Maritime Radical is a lively and intimate portrayal of an uncompromising Canadian whose RCMP file grew to over 500 pages.
Maritime Radical is not just the story of one home-made rebel; it is the story of a stirring and frustrating epoch in Maritime political history.
– Silver Donald Cameron

– Irving Abella, Books in Canada
