Horses of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police: A Pictorial  History.   First Edition in dustjacket, Signed, KELLY, William and Nora KELLY KELLY, Nora
242 KELLY, William and Nora KELLY KELLY, Nora Horses of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police: A Pictorial History. First Edition in dustjacket, Signed
Doubleday Canada Limited, 1984, ISBN:0385195443 0385195443 / 9780385195447 
KELLY, William and Nora KELLY. The Horses of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police: A Pictorial History. Toronto : Doubleday Canada Limited, 1984. First Edition. Pp. (8),9-288. Illustrated throughout, including b&w and colour photos. Large 8vo, brown cloth, gilt lettering to spine.

"Shown above are HRH Queen Elizabeth II and U.S. President Ronald Reagan enjoying a pleasure hack through Windsor Park on Burmese and Centenial, the RCMP-bred and -trained horses the Force gave to the Queen." caption of photo on rear of the jacket.

"In May 1873 the mandate came down from the government of Canada's first prime minister, Sir John A. Macdonald: The reign of lawlessness dominating the North-West Territories, recently purchased from the Hudson's Bay Company, must end. To bring this about, the government authorized the immediate establishment of "a Police Force in the North-West Territories, to number not more than three hundred", and to be mounted "on the hardy horse of the country". These three hundred men and horses, according to Macdonald's audacious plan, were to bring law and order to the 300,000 square miles of the North-West Territories. It was an impossible plan, a monumental task. And yet, with comparative dispatch, the impossible plan was carried out; but it could not have been, were it not for the contribution of the horse.

Moreover, for the following forty years, before mechanization brought about the decline of the horse for police work, it was the constable and his mount or which strengthened the then tenuous hold of civilization over the farflung western and northern settlements of Canada.

The RCMP and the government of Canada have paid tribute to the horse for this contribution At present, the force's breeding program, first begun in 1946, flourishes at Pakenham, Ontario, breeding the "black beauties" of the internationally renowned RCMP Musical Ride. These horses have become figureheads, Canadian "ambassadors" of a sort. Each year the Ride goes on tour in Canada and often abroad, delighting hundreds of thousands of spectators annually with its precision performances of such intricate, traditional musical ride movements as the "Dome", the "Shanghai Cross", the "Cloverleaf", and at the end of each performance, the crowd's favourite: "the "Charge". When they are not touring with the Ride, these equine ambassadors are often called upon to provide escorts on ceremonial occasions in and around Ottawa, Canada's capital, for foreign dignitaries as well as for Canada's own governors general.

Today's sleek, refined, meticulously bred RCMP horses seem to hear little resemblance to the scruffy bronchos who served alongside the men in the early years of the Force. In 1874, Old Buck carried the NWMP trumpeter "Boy Bagley" over two thousand miles on the torturous original march over largely unbroken trails, and then served as a patrol horse in the Territories for over thirty years. In 1981, Queen Elizabeth II, mounted on her RCMP-bred and -trained horse Burmese, was fired at five times at close range during Her Majesty's birthday Parade. Burmese darted ahead three steps, and then was still.

The Horses of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police is a tribute to this speciall group of horses - the mounts of the original North-West Mounted Police and those of its successors, the Royal North-West Mounted Mounted Police and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police — and the many unsung heroes among them.

246 KENDLE, John BRACKEN, John John Bracken : A Political Biography. First Edition in dustjacket
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1979, ISBN:0802054390 1979 
KENDLE, John. John Bracken : A Political Biography.Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (1979). First Edition. Pp (10),[xi]-xiii,(13),[3]-318,(2). With 16 b&w photos as well as some political cartoons in the text. 8vo, reddish-brown cloth, black lettering to spine.

"Premier of Manitoba for more than twenty years and, later, leader of the federal Progressive Conservative party, John Bracken became the recognized voice of the west during the difficult years of the depression. His success was surpris­ing, for Bracken was not by nature a politician. He was drafted in to politics in 1922, having had little political experience, and his approach to government was pragmatic, non-partisan, and businesslike. This book examines Bracken's political career, focusing on his years in Mani­toba and his role in the political development of the Canadian west.

During the 1920s Bracken not only provided Manitoba with a stable and efficient government but he also took a deep interest in the development of the north. It was his commit­ment that provided steady expansion of Mani­toba's pulp and paper industry, its mining, and its hydro-electric power. It was the depression of the 1930s, however, that brought Bracken to the centre of the political stage. Out of Mani­toba's fiscal needs came Bracken's case for a new financial deal for the west in Confederation and a readjustment of federal-provincial constitutional powers. His position was strenuously regionalist, but his approach was just as em­phatically centralist. He argued for the federal government's role as the mainstay and regulator of the national economy,and he introduced the idea of transfer payments to mitigate regional inequalities. His ideas were upheld in essence by the Rowell-Sirois Commission.
Bracken's years as leader of the Progressive Conservative party were difficult ones. His quiet, low-key personal style and his eclectic, anti­party approach were totally unsuited to the narrowly focused, factionally intense party warfare of Ottawa. It was during the Manitoba years that his role in national politics was most prominent, and his was an important contribution to a searching examination of Canadian federalism." (from the dj).

Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, Madison & Teaneck, 2015, ISBN:9781611478495 
KORNESKI, Kurt. Race, Nation, and Reform Ideology in Winnipeg, 1880s - 1920s. Madison & Teaneck : Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, (2015). First Edition. Pp (4),v-viii,1-235,(5). 8vo, illustrated hardcovers, yellow spine.
"During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, a host of journalists, ministers, medical doctors, businessmen, lawyers, labor leaders, politicians, and others called for an assault on poverty, slums, disreputable boarding houses, alcoholism, prostitution, sweatshop conditions, inadequate educational facilities, and other social evils. Although they represented an array of political positions and advocated a range of strategies to deal with what they deemed problems, historians have come to term this impulse 'urban reform' or the 'urban reform movement'. Race, Nation, and Reform Ideology in Winnipeg, 1880s-1920s considers the history of reform ideology in Canada. It does so by considering four leading reformers living in what might be described as the most Canadian of Canadian cities: Winnipeg, Manitoba. While the book engages in discussions and debates surrounding the particular individuals it considers, its more general argument is that to understand the history of reform in Canada requires viewing reformers as simultaneously experiencing and responding to two basic phenomena. It requires understanding them as confronting the polarizing tendencies, exploitation, and sometimes grinding poverty that was central to the economic order they (often unwittingly) helped to impose in northern North America. It also, however, requires seeing them as fundamentally shaped by the process and legacy of the dispossession of Aboriginal peoples, and the changing nature of Aboriginal-settler relations that were also central to the development of Canada." - from rear cover.
