Born in Japan, Ann Young spent most of her early life in Canada, residing in Vancouver, Toronto, Los Angeles and Manila before eventually calling her home in Washington, D.C.. She enjoys the many faces of our government, particularly Senator Ted Kennedy, with whom she has worked through the years. "I get so frustrated with all the politics of the United States," she said. "The fact is that if we return to Washington, we need to proceed. "Ann did not become a politician before Ronald Regan appointed to the planks of the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) as well as the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). At that moment, she had been a publication editor, writing novels on Canadian identity and people communication. Regan enjoyed her m ann young  er of literature, which focused on presenting issues and perspectives as stories that are fascinating, irrespective of how they were presented. " When I had been asked to decide on a novel," she said," I'd have chosen novels on Canadian identity. "Ann was also a very strong supporter of the Peace Prize movement, which she considered to be a rewarding feat. " I did not go personally that the trophy was so offensive," she explained. " What I felt was that it deserved a little attention into the free environment " In actuality, she believed that her involvement from the Peace Prize had been a significant step in route to becoming more associated with Canadian problems, particularly post-apartheid. Ann continued to operate closely with the famed author Margaret Anderson, writing numerous biographies, also producing a popular television miniseries entitled"When the Saints Go Marching in." Besides her publication efforts, Ann was active in the political arena for being a volunteer for the Canadian Peacekeeping Service throughout the height of the Cold War. In the wake of the Cold War, she became active at most Canadian charities, most notably the Canada Assistance Program (CAP), also worked to help provide support for Canadian soldiers and their families.Ann was busy in the environment and had been enthused about issues such as the protection of nature and the promotion of women's rights. She repeatedly encouraged the inclusion of women in Canadian politics, saying that they will have the right to produce their own decisions regarding how their lives are run. She was busy from the divestiture movement against South Africa's Apartheid policies. In one of her experiments, she wrote,"There is no more any use crying over spilled milk. Let's face the facts...and you are going to understand just why I am opposed to the use of force. "Ann Young has lived an exciting and varied lifetime, throughout that she had been a tireless advocate for a lot of causes. She was tireless in her efforts to ensure justice and freedom for many Canadians. She had been also a tireless promoter of peace and justice. She is best known for her non-fiction works, which won awards both in fiction and non-fiction category around the world. Among her honors are the Order of the British kingdom to get services on Canada, the Order of the British Monarchy, and also the Army of New Brunswick.
