Om boka

The year 1968 in Canada was an extraordinary one,
unlike any other in its frenetic pace of activities and
their consequences for the development of a new
national consciousness among Canadians.


It was a year when decisions and actions, both in
Canada and outside its borders, were thick and
contentious, and whose effects were momentous and
far-reaching. It saw the rise of Trudeaumania and the
birth of the Parti Quebecois; the articulation of the
new nationalism in English Canada and an alternative
vision for Indigenous rights and governance; a series of
public hearings in the Royal Commission on the Status
of Women; the establishment of the Canadian Radio
and Television Commission, nation-wide Medicare and
CanLit; and a striving for both a new relationship with
the United States and a more independent foreign
policy everywhere else. And more. Virtually no segment
of Canadian life was untouched by both the turmoil
and the promise of generational change.
