Hannant, I&NS 10.4: Kealey and Whitaker are assembling this series with the aim of "providing a complete record of [RCMP] security bulletins ... beginning from the end of the First World War and extending into the post-Second World War era.... [W]hat we see here, especially in the early years, is not intelligence but narration.... Essentially, [these bulletins] are primary sources, and have to be treated as such.... [They provide] new evidence to view the [Canadian] Communist Party in a much more nuanced way than before.... What the bulletins present ... is occasionally a greatly detailed, but not comprehensive, portrait of political life in Canada.... Perhaps their greatest weakness as political intelligence remains the fact that the RCMP was so blindly anti-communist that sermonizing often overrides thoughtful evaluation."
