Administrative history

The Ku Klux Klan made inroads within Saskatchewan during the 1920s, The Klan flourished at Moose Jaw in the late 1920s as many joined with the idea of "cleaning up" River Street, known for its immigrant population. However, its existence was short-lived as Klan activities everywhere abated with the growing Depression and other factors.
