White, Bob

Former Head of the Canadian Labour Congress, whether he’s holding the post of president or not. He led Canada’s auto workers out of the corrupt American United Auto Workers Union, and became the model for a series of similar Canadian union liberations. Avoided becoming leader of federal NDP by sheer force of character and settled for being the only over-35 trade unionist in Canada with a waist size below 36 inches.
