Goodwin's Journal is a project currently in the founding stages of development.

Abstract:  Goodwin's Journal is a project currently in the founding stages of development. It hopes to begin publishing as a national alternative economic and political magazine beginning in January, 1983.

The name for the journal was inspired by Albert Goodwin, a Canadian labour leader, organizer and socialist. In 1918, he was shot by police near Comox, B.C. for avoiding the draft.

Through a number of working papers inviting consumer response, the following editorial concept is emerging:

1) a new alternative magazine written for society's rank and file aiming to challenge the settled ideas of our times with accurate, inspired reporting and analysis;

2) a magazine with a social conscience that would strive to give readers a perspective on social and economic development that is relevant to working people and other groups organizing around key issues for social change;

3) a general interest magazine for concerned Canadians that would struggle to be a watchdog for social movements, identifying and investigating corporate and government activities that might be detrimental to ordinary citizens.

Since the founding group has chosen to proceed step by step through a democratic development process only as money permits, they invite comment and financial support at each stage leading to publication.
