"From a thousand hills a thousand rills gather into a mighty river which sweeps on to the ocean. An attempt to dam the Niagara, in the hope that it would never reach the sea, would be no more foolish than the attempt to dam labour from its resistless onward sweep towards its natural outlet – cooperative industry."
                                                        Fred J. Dixon, Winnipeg Strike Bulletin, 27, 1919

"Grass will grow, the river will reach the sea, the boy will become a man, and labour will come into its own."
                                                           Fred J. Dixon, speech to the jury, 1920
