The Young

(see Human Resources) A rapidly aging segment of the Canadian population born between 1950 and 1970 and educated to form a disaffected lumpen bourgeoisie. Presently being heavily propagandized by the right, as are those born after 1970, most of whom are too frightened and angry about their financial futures to be young.

Young Liberals

A coalition of semi-principled youth from other parties who’ve decided they need power to make a difference and enterprising opportunists who just want to ‘make it’ in politics. Both groups generally manifest higher social ability and lower awareness of issues than their NDP or PC counterparts. (David Banerjee)

Young, Neil

With Joni Mitchell, Young is Canada’s finest song-writer–and worst vocalist since Charlie Chamberland. His father was Scott Young, which makes Neil a second generation cultural treasure, one who isn’t losing his stuff as he gets older.

Yugoslavia

The direction in which Canada appeared to be heading throughout most of the 1990s, and which could still be our fate.

Yukon Gold

A relatively recently developed species of potato that is tastier than any other, grows better in Canada’s climates than in the U.S. It is much more likely to bring down NAFTA and the Canada-U.S. FTA than either Patrick Buchanan or the NDP.
