Hargrove, Buzz

Leader of the Canadian Auto Workers union, which represents 148,000 non-auto workers along with the 90,000 who actually do make cars. Is he an out-of-control megalomaniac and raider responsible for the labour movement’s slo-mo death-by-bickering? Or is he cutting a path past the moribund NDP by shaping the CAW into a social and political movement. Either way, the man has smarts, vision and isn’t afraid to take a punch from any political direction to give voice to what is left of the left.
