So I'll be honest right off the bat -- I'm a millennial. Yes, I'm a part of that "doomed" generation full of smart young people who largely still work in customer service despite our degrees, our ideas and our experience. We're your kids, your baristas, your bloggers and your Facebook friends.
We millennials in Canada, the U.S. or the U.K. were born into the neoliberal era. While our parents lived through the heyday of the social welfare state, millennials were born into a time when corporate tax cuts, privatization and deregulation were (and are) the policies du jour.
To us, Pierre Trudeau is just another name.
To us, Stephen Harper is the person still working hard to dismantle Canadian civil society.
