In the past two decades, Canadians have seen profound changes that mark a crucial turning point in the evolution of Canadian society. Each day, the media provided evidence of the growing tension around pivotal issues such as the need for trade unions in a post-industrial, information society; the violence of racism in urban centers; gender inequalities; poverty; the economic, political, and environmental fall-out from United States governmental policies; and the relationship of Quebec in the Canadian Confederation. This book presents illuminating essays on such issues, focusing primarily on the problems and issues of inequality. Taken as a whole, the essays provide the basis for serious consideration of Canada's future as it faces the hard truths and meets the challenges that will continue to confront Canadian society.
