James Shaver Woodsworth was a pioneer in the Canadian social democratic movement. Following more than two decades ministering to the poor and the working class, J. S. Woodsworth left the Methodist Church to sponsor the Social Gospel movement as he felt the Church was much more concerned with profit than it was with helping the underprivileged of Manitoba. He was arrested in Winnipeg, Manitoba, for supporting the protesters at the Winnipeg General Strike, but never charged. Woodsworth was elected as a Member of Parliament for the Federated Labour Party of British Columbia in 1921. Woodsworth's greatest triumph in life was in 1933, when he founded and became leader of the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation, Canada's first Socialist party, which evolved into today's New Democratic Party.
