The Rankin File: Legacy of a Radical
Harry Rankin (1920-2002) maddened comrades and combatants alike. To those who shared his socialist beliefs, the Vancouver labor and criminal, city councilor, and mayoral candidate could be acerbic, hectoring, and incorrigible. And yet even his ideological adversaries could not help but respect the tenacity of his fight for affordable housing and equal rights. Rankin’s passion virtually corsucates off the screen as he re-emerges as a fighter in battles still being fought today, not only in Vancouver but around the world.
