Maritime Radical

The Life and Times of Roscoe Fillmore

By Nicholas Fillmore


Out of Stock

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

Here we meet not a country gardener, but a hard-bitten social activist–a committed Communist at a time when being Red was dangerous in Canada–and a radicalism born out of the desperate conditions of the backwoods farmer in rural New Brunswick.

– Irving Abella, *Books in Canada*
