THE MEASURE OF JOHN PORTER* Wallace Clement John Porter died on June
15, 1979 of heart failure, only weeks after submitting the manuscript for The
Measure of Canadian Society to the original publisher. John said he wished to
dedicate the book to his wife, Marion, because he felt it might be his last major
work. His health had been precarious for the previous two decades, having
suffered two major heart attacks during the 1960s. Those who knew him during
the decade of ...

It proved to be a more demanding scholarly task than Rick originally anticipated.
Helmes-Hayes is far from a 'carper.' As you will see, his analytical biography is
respectful, empirically rich, and indepth. After completing a PhD on the
foundations of Canadian sociology at the University of Toronto, Rick Helmes-
Hayes came to Carleton University to do his post-doctoral research. We worked
together on the reissuing of Porter's The Measure of Canadian Society (1987). I
am now older than ...

Few books have been so important in the growth of social self-understanding in
Canada as The Vertical Mosaic; few works of scholarship have had such a
profound influence on academic and more general analyses of Canadian society

higher education in Canada ever written: John's York lectures on 'Education,
Equality, and the Just Society,' the last two essays in The Measure of Canadian

There are two major paradigms for thinking about social stratification and
inequality in society. The first employs the neo-Marxist notion of class, updated to
reflect the complexity of modern labour markets and especially the rise of
managers and technical experts since Marx's time. The second method, termed a
measure of socio-economic status or SES, combines education, occupation, and
income in a composite index (see Box 9.3). Box 9.3 Neo-Marxist and Socio-
economic (SES) ...

What is the current health status of Canadians? What has been the general trend
in health status? Using a variety of institutional and national survey data we
attempt to provide some answers to the questions. There is no single indicator of
health status of a population. Life expectancy, morbidity, disability, hospital use
and alternate health care are among the variety of measures that can be used.
Each measure contributes an item of information to the overall assessment of the
health of ...

Measurable – Your goal should be measurable. Olympic athletes and indeed
sports people go into competition knowing exactly what the demands of the event
might be. They are timed; their efforts are measured. This allows for better
scorekeeping. Having two master's degrees or speaking five languages are
measurable in the same way that you can measure your proficiency in piano
playing by taking the Royal Conservatory of Music level exams. S M A R T = = = =

Public stereotypes and private myths about mental disorders run deep in
Canadian society. We feel a revulsion and sympathy towards mental illness and
its treatment in equal measure. From the Victorian backdrop to Margaret Atwood's
Alias Grace1 to Timothy Findlay's post-war Headhunter,2the mental hospital and
the practice of psychiatry act as a fictional repository for our darkest fears. Such
ambivalent and contradictory attitudes are further shaped by and reflected in
popular ...

dimensions to be considered when examining the state of ethnic studies in
Canada during the 1980s, not the least of which is the expanse and diversity of
the subject. Does, for example, the term "ethnic" apply to all cultural groups in
Canada, or only to those of non-British, non-French origin? And how does one
measure the sense of ethnic identity: "... from the standpoint of the academic
observer (objective ...
