The CD Story (So Far) 1983-2003: Part I of the CD Story (So Far) Appears in Canadian Dimension Volume 37 No.5 (September/October, 2003)


Gonick, Cy, Canadian Dimension


There were several changes of the guard at CD as we entered our third decade and with them a decidedly more diverse content. More than ever before our collective was drawn from activists in various popular movements. But the new diversity arose from more than the changing composition of the collective. It also arose from our awareness that political consciousness--how people become involved in political action--is very complex and stems from a variety of experiences. People's consciousness of their racial oppression or their sexual oppression, of the exploitation and degradation of nature, or of military or economic domination of the weak by the powerful--any of these may be as key a politicizing factor as their class exploitation.

Titles like: "Manufacturing Madness" (Don Weitz), "Heterosexuality--a Challenge to the Left" (Marian Valverde), "Rooting Out Male Violence" (editorial), The Trials of Harry Kopyto" (Marion Cohen), "Surrogate Motherhood" (Marsha Hewitt)), "Is the Food Industry Killing Us?" (Chernomas), "The Left and Gay Liberation" (Tim McCaskell), "REAL Women: Really Dangerous" (Karen Dubinsky), "AIDS and the Crisis of Sexuality" (Jackie Larkin), "Why Women Smoke" (Charlene Toews), "Growing Old" (Ustun Reinart), "With God on Our Side" (Editorial), "Goon Masculinity" (Bruce Kidd), "Battered Wife Syndrome (Elizabeth Comack), "No Good Cops At OKA" (Editorial), "Contradictions of Sustainable Development" (Brewster Kneen), "The Politics of Greenpeace" (Bruce Livesay), "A Politics of Intimate Life" (Roberta Hamilton).

Many of these and other articles stemmed from a commitment of the CD collective back in 1983 to devote more space to the politics of the popular movements--women, aboriginal, environmental, peace, faith communities, etc. In our editorial statement of September, 1983, we outlined some principles that would govern the editorial direction of the magazine for several years.
