Abstract: OUR TIMES is an independent quarterly journal "committed to sociql change through democratic pluralism."
The Spring 1983 issue features an article by Gregory Baum on the Catholic Bishops' statement; an interview with union leader Sean O'Flynn; articles on being down and out in Toronto, Internatioanl Women's Day, Brazil, Pay TV, pornography, and chemicals in the workplace.
An article by Jean Claude Parrot argues that "the very fact that we speak of organizing against concessions instead of organizaing to fight for advances such as equality for women, dignity for pensioners or health and safety at the workplace - all this indicates the extent to which we have been placed on the defensive."
According to OUR TIMES, "one way we begin to overcome the fear generated by the economic crisis is to search for common ground from which to develop specific strategies for social change... The first step in the process is recogninizing who our friends, our potential friends, are. Who this we is."
