Overview

What kind of Canada does the under-35 generation see themselves heir to? Do they consider themselves members of a Canadian nation at all?

The only way to find out, Myrna Kostash decided, was to travel across Canada and talk to young people in all walks of life. Her aim was to draw a map of the next Canada and see how its ideals compared to those of her own generation, which came of age and learned its politics in the sixties and seventies. In chapters on economics and the workplace, media and the arts, gender politics and sexuality, and racial and cultural identity, Kostash meets a diverse and outspoken set of young Canadians. Filled with wit, intelligence, and candour, this profound and insightful book will force a reassessment of the way we look at the 25- to 35-year-old generation.
