Industrialization, urbanization, war, and the Great Depression provoked formation of the LSR. This seems strange as the impact of the LSR on Canadian social democracy is directly connected to ideas laid out in its main works. I'm considering laying out the table on contents to each book or perhaps creating separate articles for them, namely Social Planning for Canada and Democracy Needs Socialism with LSR: League for Social Reconstruction book descriptions.

In the first history of this unique organization Michiel Horn outlines the League's aims and accomplishments and its ideological influence on the CCF and the NDP.

The League's own democratic socialist ideas were most fully stated in Social Planning for Canada (), Democracy. The Great Depression greatly disturbed Scott; he and the historian Frank Underhill founded the League for Social Reconstruction (LSR) to advocate socialist solutions in a Canadian context.

Through the LSR, Scott became an influential figure in the Canadian socialist movement. He was a founding member of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF) and a contributor to that Party's Regina Alma mater: Bishop's University, Magdalen.
