Julie Gordon fights back


In November of 2000, I ran for mayor in the City of Hamilton in order to make poverty an issue. Professor Roy Adams wrote a column in the Hamilton Spectator on my behalf.

“Julie Gordon has been an active campaigner for social causes in Hamilton for many years. An unrepentant Keynesian, Ms. Gordon is a vibrant social activist who infuses vitality into the corpus of the body politic,” Adams said.

Here are some brief examples of my work from various sources:

“The single mother on a fixed income knows best where to budget money in the best interest of the family and society: food, shelter and children otherwise Social Services, housing, health care and education.” Speech to the Status of Women’s Committee in Hamilton

“To prevent child abuse our attitude toward single parents must change. We must not dehumanize poor people with the labels Mike Harris pinned on us. The role of all mothers is important and should be respected. If the self esteem and income of parents was higher much of the daily stress [leading to abuse] would not exist.” Speech at a forum on Children’s Services by CUPE in 1998

Ms. Gordon marched against racism with the Caldwell First Nations who have launched a new reserve in Chatam – Kent “The Caldwells have a right to establish a place to live,” Report in Hamilton Spectator during the municipal election.

“The absence of formal unions does not mean that collective resistance does not exist.” Speech at Queen’s Park, Hearing on Bill 22, the Act to prevent Unionization

mothers fight back

I would like to present you with a poem that I wrote and read to an audience celebrating mothers in Guelph. It was published by Ed VIDEO.



I am mother.

Spelled M-O-T-H-E-R

Call me mother

Not Mum

Only my child calls me "Mum"



That is my child, not my kid

I am not a goat and neither is she!

I am not a chrysanthemum

I am not a flower to be plucked out of the earth

Away from my roots

To be stared at, Isolated, talked about

Until… Continue
