The John J. Wintermeyer Lecture on Religion and Politics
In 1968, Pierre Trudeau ran for office promising a “Just Society.” Was it just an election slogan? For a society supposedly secularizing in the swinging sixties, descriptors like “Just Society” and “Peaceable Kingdom” had remarkably religious overtones. This lecture looks at how the promise of the sixties melded with Canadian identity formation and imprinted baby boomers with a particular understanding of national values that would long withstand the rise of neoliberalism.
