Description

Warrior worked for over thirty years at the sharp end of production in B.C. as a logger, commercial fisherman and union activist.

M.C. Warrior’s book is a fine collection of new poetry and poems only previously found in magazines, anthologies and in the chapbook Quitting Time published by McLeod Books in 1978. They range from poetry about working on the coast—commercial fishing, logging, environmental campaigner—to the political meaning of work, and wry and deft observations on topics ranging from Buddhism to Ovid in the afterlife. Warrior was an IWA logging Camp Chairman, UFAWU Organizer (United Fishermen & Allied Workers Union), Lead Strategic Researcher For LiUNA (Labourers’ International Union of North America) and Executive Director of a Habitat for Humanity affiliate.
