Rebel without a Pause by Nick Ternette


Rebel without a Pause by Nick Ternette

Rebel Without a Pause is the autobiography of Winnipeg s best-known and most persistent political activist, Nick Ternette. For over forty years, Nick was one of the loudest voices of the left, who ran for mayor multiple times and never shied away from asking elected officials tough questions. A champion of the rights of the poor and the disabled, sustainable ecology and public transit as well as a leader in Winnipeg s peace movement, Nick was a thorn in the side of politicians and city officials for decades. While this book is also the story of political activism in Winnipeg since the 1960s, Rebel Without a Pause tells the story of who Nick was and how he became a professional radical, a person who never stopped being an activist and who truly believed in social justice and the power of political action. Written before his death in March 2013, Rebel Without a Pause invites us into the personal life and political memories of one of Winnipeg s most cherished citizens.
