CCF: A Record of Change?

The Co-operative Commonwealth Federation
had big plans when it came into power in 
1944. 
Was the CCF government able to make all of
the changes that had been envisioned?
 

The documents below were created and distributed by the
CCF Saskatchewan Section of the New Democratic Party in the 1960s,

to share its record of change with the people of Saskatchewan
before the 1964 provincial election campaign.

After considering the primary source evidence
from the 1944 Saskatchewan election
and comparing it to evidence
from the 1964 Saskatchewan election,
consider these questions...

Once the CCF was in power, what solutions were acted upon
and how quickly did it make changes?

Given that the CCF proposed such a radical slate of changes, 
did anything remain the same after 1944?

How long lasting were any changes that were made?
5 years? 10 years? 20 years? Longer?

How did the opposition Liberal Party's vision compare
to the CCF/NDP's record and vision in the 1960s? 

Does any evidence of change remain today?
