Former Mayor of Toronto, John Sewell, describes the twelve dynamic years from 1969-1980 when he and other enthusiastic people helped foster change in the political landscape of Toronto.

Sewell describes the conflict-filled period when Toronto developed a whole new approach to city government, civic engagement, and planning policies. Sewell went from activist organizer, to high-profile opposition politician, to leading light of a bare reform majority at city hall, to become Toronto's mayor.
