Legacies of "The Sixties"

Dianne Newell belonged to the first cohort of baby boomers in Canada to attend university in "The Sixties"—not the decade, but, as Doug Owram reminds us in "Born at the Right Time," the era. Social revolution was in the air and, often, the streets. The story she shares links that context to the unanticipated choices she made in the years that followed.
