Bill Pritchard is probably best known for being jailed under a bogus conspiracy charge in the aftermath of the Winnipeg General Strike. He was also a militant of the Socialist Party of Canada, the editor of its newspaper, The Western Clarion, and a founder of the One Big Union. After the demise of the SPC, he was an early member of the CCF and was Reeve of Burnaby for a number of years. Later in life, he returned to the "Impossibilist" socialism of his roots.

A E Jacomb's case against the Socialist Party

A E Jacomb

The first of the statements in this text recognised some value in democracy, but declared it to be secondary to independence, and on this ground the Party refused to endorse the Spanish democrats’ struggle to maintain their democratic regime. The second predicated either that democracy was not threatened, or that it was not a working-class interest. The third was advanced as a repudiation of the others, which had proved indefensible.
