Example text

By degrees, the number of Canadians who had an interest in the educational system increased. Tied into this concern over education was increasing alarm at what was happening in the United States. Politically the government there was embroiled in a war in Vietnam that was becoming ever more unpopular with both its own population and with Canadians. An estimated fifty thousand young Americans came into Canada in an effort to dodge the draft, bringing with them harsh judgments of their own political system.

In general the Canadianization frame was extended by Mathews to include all these various nationalist and socialist/Marxist groups: 'We've got to stop the sell-out before anything, ' he said, 'or as a part of everything, and right now the left can't do it alone. '28 To Daniel Drache, leading member of the CLM, Mathews opined that 'I suspect that the time is right for a grouping on the left that is anti-imperialist and names very, very, very clearly the terms of the national question within the socialist framework.

It is there that he met Steele. James Steele's approach to activism was only slightly different from that of Mathews. The major difference between the two when it came to the issue of Canadianization was one of personal style, both agreeing in substance on many of the issues. Born in London, Ontario, and completing his BA and MA at the University of Toronto during the 1950s, Steele also did graduate work abroad, completing his PhD in English in 1965 at the University of London in England. One year before receiving his degree, he was offered a full-time position in the Carleton University Department of English, which he took after several years of parttime lecturing at McGill.
