Mutiny from Victoria to Vladivostok
Six weeks after the Armistice was signed in 1918, a contingent of Canadian soldiers mobilized for battle in a new theatre of war—Siberia. The day of their departure, 21 December 1918, Quebecois conscripts in the 259th Battalion of the Canadian Siberian Expeditionary Force mutinied in Victoria, BC. Latent discontent was translated into collective resistance in an encounter with the radical section of British Columbia’s working class. National and class cleavages converged, revealing deep tensions in Canadian society.
