David Foot: the 'young people' problem
In this 1999 clip, Foot sits down in the park with Evan Solomon and gives him a demographer's view of individualism.
• In a quote highlighted in this clip, Foot singles out 1961 as "one of the worst years in this century to be born." To these folks, he says "You're one of a huge crowd of late baby boomers, also known as generation X."
• Foot has twice received (in 1983 and 1992) the University of Toronto undergraduate teaching award; in 1992 he received one of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education's 3M awards for teaching excellence, which recognizes outstanding Canadian university educators.
