Sask Progressive Doug Taylor Passes


Douglas James Taylor
1956 - 2014

I lost a very good friend this week. Doug Taylor, author of a number of progressive Canadian political blogs died on Monday, January 13, 2014. I met Doug in the 1970's when he was still a student. His zeal for a progressive and fair society dates back decades to his youth.

Doug obtained a BA in sociology at the University of Regina in the 1970's.. His first employment after university was a contract to write the history of SGEU. This was the first of a number of works he authored, edited or contributed to over the ensuing years. He then worked as a social worker for several years at Fort Qu'Appelle followed by a 20 year career at SGEU as an agreement advisor and communications worker. After retiring a few years ago he found enjoyment in part time work as a communications worker with Lakeview United Church. He was a staunch activist, socialist and trade unionist all his life. When advised of his short life expectancy a week ago, he faced his pending passing with stoicism, courage and good humour, easing his final days for his family.

Doug's writings and thoughts were published in the following Left Progressive websites:

-Next Year Country

-ecosocialism canada

-Next Year Country Socialist Retro

He passed away peacefully with family at his side. - See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/leaderpost/obituary.aspx?n=douglas-taylor&pid=169129310#sthash.HYyOsVVF.dpuf
