29 March 1920 - The Robson Report Finally Public

The Robson Report is finally made public (for background and a link ot the report).

Presented to the Provicne back on November 6, 1919 Robson found, much like the Mathers' Commission of earlier in the year, little evidence of Bolshevik revolution. Rather, he concludes, the strike was a "protest against conditions" that they faced and a "demand for relief":

"it is too much for me to say that the vast number of intelligent residents who went on strike were seditious or that they were either dull enough or weak enough to allow themselves to be led by seditionaries."
