From The Past: The Cranbrook Hearld, June 28th, 1900

By Andrew Phillip Chernoff

On Thursday, June 28, 1900 the Cranbrook Hearld newspaper published an article in its paper that would gather attention, raise a few eyebrows, result in a few laughs and create embarrassment for two other newspapers.

The article, titled “Taking A Look Forward: Excerpts From The ‘Morning Hearld’ Of September 10, 1907”, that showed the following occurrences at that time:  “Conflageration In The Warehouse District—Loss Nearly Half A Million” and “A Great Labor Strike Imminent”.

On July 13, 1900, the Slocan Drill newspaper published an article that exposed the above Cranbrook Hearld post as a hoax, claiming two newspapers, the Spokane Review and Sandon Paystreak “were both caught for suckers having re-published the item as an alleged fact of today. It is a horse on them”.

The Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF) (French: Fédération du Commonwealth Coopératif, from 1955 the Parti social démocratique du Canada) was a social-democratic[2] and democratic socialist[3] political party in Canada. The CCF was founded in 1932 in Calgary, Alberta, by a number of socialist, agrarian, co-operative, and labour groups,[4] and the League for Social Reconstruction. In 1944, the CCF formed the first social-democratic government in North America when it was elected to form the provincial government in Saskatchewan.[5] In 1961, the CCF was succeeded by the New Democratic Party (NDP). The full, but little used, name of the party was Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (Farmer-Labour-Socialist).[6]
