Elect Mary Kardash Winnipeg 1971 - The New City Needs New Policies to Serve You!

Vintage Leftist Leaflet Project

See the end of this post for details on the project.

Leaflet: Elect Mary Kardash 1971 - The New City Needs New Policies to Serve You!

An election leaflet from the 1971 School Trustee campaign of  legendary Winnipeg Communist activist and politician Mary Kardash.

Kardsah was running with another legend of Winnipeg municipal and Communist politics, City Councillor Joe Zuken on the Labor Election Committee ticket. Kardash was elected to and served on the school board several times between 1960 and 1986.

We also have a Joe Zuken leaflet from the same campaign that we will feature tomorrow.

When The Left Chapter began part of what I wanted to do on the blog was to show and highlight vintage public leftist election/political leaflets and booklets. While many of these have been offered with commentary to date, a very large collection of hundreds of them from several different sources remains and to preserve these often quite rare documents we will be posting them on a regular (almost daily) basis now often without or with minimal commentary so that people may have access to them as quickly as possible as an historical resource. 

While these will all be leaflets from a variety of different leftist viewpoints and countries, they are being posted as an historical/study resource and the views or opinions expressed in them do not necessarily reflect the views of this blog or blogger.

All of these posts (as well as posts made to date) will be listed on the page: Vintage Communist/Socialist Leaflets (which is still being updated with past posts).

If you have any public, vintage leaflets or booklets you would like to contribute to this project please contact us via
