During the ii½long sixties, ii½ baby boomers raised on democratic postwar ideals demanded a more egalitarian society for all. While a few became vocal leaders at universities across Canada, nearly 90% of Canadaii½s young people went straight to work after high school. There, they brought the anti-authoritarian spirit of the youth revolt to the labour movement. While university-based activists combined youth culture with a new brand of radicalism to form the New Left, young workers were defying their aging union leaders in a wave of renewed militancy. In Rebel Youth, Ian Milligan looks at these converging currents, demonstrating convincingly how they were part of the same youth phenomenon.See Dare Cookies Local 327 (CBRT), Toronto, 54 Local 439 (UAW), Massey- Ferguson, 159 Local 444 (UAW), ... 102; National Farmers Union and, 91-92, 105 -6; the Waffle and, 104, 103 Monie, David, 161-62 Moore, Terry, 134, 135-36, 178 anbsp;...
