Atkinson Celebrates Turning 75 with a Graphic Novella

A Share in the Honour: Canada’s Fight for Decent Work in Joseph Atkinson’s Times is a story about catching a vision of what’s possible and what must be done for future generations to have decent lives.

It reminds us that too often pain comes before progress. It spans the lifetime of a principled 20th century journalist who built “a paper for the people” to shine a light on injustice and to be a light on the road to a better society.

But mostly, it’s a cautionary and hopeful tale for our times – an invitation to roll up our sleeves for the next round in the fight for decent work, to challenge the unfair distribution of work and wealth in our 21st century world, and to accept a share of the honour coming to Canada if we win.
