CLC Presidency

Carol Wall is running for the presidency of the Canadian Labour Congress at its convention in June. She is a long-time labour activist and co-author of Education for Changing Unions -- another one of the co-authors of that book is Joseph Geronimo, who is an interview participant in my social movement history project. If Wall were to win, she would become the first woman and the first person of colour to head Canada's central labour body. (Found via Rabble.CA.)

A correction: In fact, there was a white woman who was president of the CLC in the '80s...her name, I believe, is Shirley Carr.
