She loves the many faces of our government, particularly Senator Ted Kennedy, with whom she has functioned over recent years. "I get really frustrated with all the politics of the United States," she said. "The simple fact is that when we come to Washington, we have to go. "Ann did not become a politician until Ronald Regan appointed her to the planks of the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). At that time, she was a novel editor, writing books on political identity and public communication. Regan enjoyed her m ann young  er of literature, which focused on introducing issues and perspectives regarding interesting stories, regardless how they were presented. " If I were asked to decide on a book," she stated," I would have picked books on Canadian identity. "Ann was also a very good supporter of their Peace Prize movement, which she considered for a rewarding effort. " I didn't go that the trophy was so offensive," she said. " What I felt was that it deserved some attention into the free world " In fact, she believed her participation from the Peace Prize had been a significant step on the way to becoming more associated with Canadian problems, specially post-apartheid. Ann continued to work closely with the famed author Margaret Anderson, writing hundreds of biographies, also producing a favorite tv miniseries entitled"When the Saints Go Marching in." In addition to her publication efforts, Ann was active in the political arena for being a volunteer for the Canadian Peacekeeping Service during the height of the Cold War.

She repeatedly encouraged the inclusion of women in Canadian politics, saying they have the privilege to create their own conclusions regarding the way their lives are run. She had been busy from the divestiture movement against South Africa's Apartheid policies. In one of her essays, she wrote,"There is no longer any use crying over spilled milk. Let us face the truth...and you may understand just why I'm in relation to this usage of force. "Ann Young has lived an intriguing and varied life, all through that she had been a tireless advocate for a lot of causes. She had been tireless in her efforts to ensure freedom and justice for many Canadians. She was also a tireless promoter of peace and social justice. She's famous for her non-fiction works, which won awards both in fiction and non fiction category throughout the globe. Among her honors are the Order of the British empire to get solutions on Canada, the Order of the British Monarchy, and the Governor of New Brunswick.
