" If I had been asked to decide on a book," she explained," I would have chosen novels on Canadian identity. "Ann was also a very strong supporter of this Peace Prize movement, which she believed to be a rewarding feat. " I didn't take it personally that the trophy was so offensive," she explained.

She had been busy at the divestiture movement against South Africa's Apartheid policies. In another of her experiments, she wrote,"There is no longer any use crying over spilled milk. Let us face the facts...and you will understand why I'm in relation to this usage of force. "Ann Young has lived an exciting and varied life, during that she was a tireless advocate for all causes. She was tireless in her efforts to guarantee freedom and justice for all Canadians. She was a tireless promoter of peace and social justice.
